Helloooooo! I am uber de duper super excited for today's blog post! I just received my very first IPSY bag!!! If you have never heard if IPSY before you are totally missing out. IPSY is a company that you subscribe to that sends you monthly makeup bags filled with beauty products! It cost's $10 a month, you can cancel anytime, and the contents usually exceed the $10 price tag by a whole lot! You take a quiz when you first sign up that tell's the company what you like as far as beauty products are concerned, what features you have so the products can be personalized to you, and how much you are willing to experiment with new trends/products. I have been wanting to sign up for a beauty subscription box for about 2 years and I always talked myself out of it because well... I am extremely frugal. I really dislike spending money, but I really love beauty products. I have heard about quite a few different beauty subscription boxes on YouTube, and IPSY seemed like the very best option for me. IPSY has one of the lowest priced subscriptions and the contents of the bag are totally up my alley. IPSY seems to have a large focus on cosmetics (which are my fave!) and sometimes they throw in a hair mask or lotion, which I love as well. Now, if your someone who doesn't like surprises or experimenting much with makeup this bag is not for you. So I got my hubby-to-be's permission to try IPSY out since you can cancel at anytime and he said go for it! He's pretty darn wonderful, he let's me spoil myself more than I'd allow. ;) If you'd like to learn more about IPSY click HERE! and you will be redirected to their website. Also, if you'd like to see what people think about their subscription to IPSY you can always go to youtube.com and watch a ton of videos on it.
Let's see what I got this month, shall we?
This month's bag was called "Destination Beauty" and it was inspired by traveling.
Each month you get a new makeup bag that houses all of your beauty products. This month's bag is kinda funky and lots of fun! It seems to be a vinyl material and the print is one of artist's Klari Reis' geography- based pieces called "Street Anatomy" and it is inspired by San Francisco!
Chella Eyeliner Pen in Indigo- retails for $24, the color of the eyeliner pen is amazing, but sadly I am terrible at eyeliner so I most likely will try to sell this or pass it along to a friend.
NYX Love In Rio eyeshadow trio in "Barefoot In The Sand"- retails for $5.99, this contains a matte white, a shimmery taupe, and a matte brown, this is totally up my alley and I cannot wait to try it!
Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer- sample size, I love face primers and I only have one so this will be a lot of fun to try, this claims to even skintone, adds glow and provides hydration.
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lipstick in "Get Ready"- sample size, this lipstick is super moisturizing and the color is opaque and has a satin finish, this color is a gorgeous medium pink, I've already worn this and I love it!
Overall I think this bag is totally worth the $10 price tag and I will try it out for another month or two and see how I feel overall about IPSY and if I wish to continue with my subscription.
