If you’re new to Ipsy, here’s the rundown. Ipsy is like a magazine subscription but instead of pretty images of products you get the real deal. Ipsy specifically has you take a style quiz to match you with what you’ll want most, never mind that they toss in a custom makeup bag every month too.
Same as BirchBox, Ipsy is only $10 a month, though these two tend to have different style items and different products all the time. You can expect items from brands like Nyx Cosmetics, Sexy Hair, & Buxom. The types of items you get will vary depending on your profile.
Seriously I have a makeup bag obsession even though I rarely use them. They’re just so pretty, and my crazy butt, likes to think about organizing myself with them. Ipsy gives you a custom bag every month, and they look great.
This was my first month receiving an Ipsy bag it was really good. The bad was super cute in a black and blue faux lace pattern and the products were great. Overall I am super satisfied and excited to get my bag next month.
Every bag this month received a sample of the Em palette. I really liked the sample but it was super small. If I have some extra cash i’ll probably buy the whole palette
Elizabeth Mott It’s so Big Volumizing Mascara
I liked this mascara but not so much as other’s I own. It was good but not great and nothing really stood out about this to me. I don’t think I’ll be getting a full size but I put this in my desk at work for when I’m in a rush.
Nyx Single Eye shadow in White Pearl
I was super excited to get this in my bag this month. I’d been eyeing these eye-shadows but I really didn’t want to shell out $4.49 to try them since the last Nyx eye shadow palette I bought was a major disappointment. This was a whole different story.
Everyone I saw received a random color of shadow the one I received was a creamy, sparkly, white color. It’s super versatile and perfect for the brow bone and inner corner of the eye. It’s fairly pigmented but since this is a white shade I would expect others to be more intense.
Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil
I liked this pencil, but it’s just your average black kohl eye pencil. It was soft, and blend-able, perfect for a smokey eye.
John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo & Conditioner
(Full-Size $5.99 each)
I haven’t actually had a chance to try these yet and honestly I’m not sure I will. There are Sulfates and -cones in these which I’m trying to avoid. The smell is great, and as far as I can tell it’s texture is what you would expect. I don’t think I’ll buy a full sized bottle but if you’re not using the curly girl method then this would be a good choice. I used to use John Frieda before I went CG and it worked pretty well for me.
