You guys. I have been totally obsessed with subscription boxes/bags for a while now. Makeup, jewelry, lifestyle, food… you name it, I think they are the coolest invention ever! I love getting on Youtube and watching subscription unboxings. So I know I’m a bit late, but I have finally jumped on the subscription bandwagon! As one of my birthday gifts, my family got me a year subscription to Ipsy. 🙌 🙌
Y’all have heard of Ipsy, I’m sure…but in case you haven’t, here’s a quick overview: For $10 a month, you receive a makeup bag filled with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products each month. By signing up on the Ipsy website and taking a beauty quiz, items sent in your bag are customized to what you like. They also have a program where you can earn points and be redeemed for bonus reward products. The Ipsy website also has special offers and fun giveaways too. After watching and reading reviews, I couldn’t wait to get my first bag.
When my bright pink package arrived in the mail yesterday I couldn’t wait to rip it open. Here’s what I got and my thoughts on this month’s Glam Bag.
What I got (and the original full-sized prices of each product):
CrownBrush Duo Fiber Blush Brush – I was super happy to get a makeup brush! I’ve been wanting to get more brushes, so getting one in my bag was super exciting. I think this brush will be great for highlighting! (Price: $9.49)
Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold – I’ve only ever tried one cream eye shadow before and I do love it for the staying power. I swatched this Starlooks one on the back of my hand and it had a really pretty sheen to it. I think this color would be a great addition to a night-out eye look. (Couldn’t find original price)
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Creme in Wonder – Tarte is one of my favorite brands! I’ve always wanted to try their lip products but never have because they are a little on the pricey side. I tried this out yesterday and love the color! (Full-sized Price: $24)
Moroccanoil Treatment – This brand always gets rave reviews from everyone so I was also excited to see this in my bag! This product can be used for hair conditioning, styling, and also as a finishing tool. (Full-sized Price: $44)
Jor’el Parker Fango Face Mask – I had never really used face masks in the past, but recently I’ve been enjoying them a lot. This mud therapy says it will hydrate, protect, and deep cleanse your skin. Anytime I do a face mask, I feel extra relaxed and pampered! (Full-sized Price: $27)
What I’m most happy about: the Tarte LipSurgence Lip Creme (I’ve been on a lip product kick lately).
What I’m most curious about: the Jor’el Parker face mask.
Overall, I’m very happy with the range of products, sizes, and brands! Although everything is pretty much deluxe sample sizes, I think the overall value is great for just $10! Getting a new bag filled with makeup products each month is going to feel like my birthday over and over again! What are your thoughts? Are you subscribed to Ipsy? If so, what did you get in your bag this month? I love how each person’s bag is a little bit different! Have you tried any other monthly subscription boxes/bags? I’d love to know! I hope you all have a great weekend! xo.
