Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription bag. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a super cute makeup bag. I am sad to say that this month will be my last month receiving this subscription. I really do think it’s one of the better beauty subscriptions out there, plus it’s a great way to build up your makeup collection for pretty cheap!
The reason I decided to move on to another subscription is because I wasn’t liking all the things that I was getting in my bags and the points you get just don’t really amount to anything. I think Birchbox is better over all for beauty and lifestyle items, but don’t worry, I have taken on another subscription in the place of Ipsy. Keep an eye out for a new subscription box. 🙂
Now let’s get into the review of this month’s Ipsy Bag.
This month the Ipsy theme was Beauty Candy. I didn’t like the theme really or the videos that they had on their channel to go along with it. I did like the bag and I think I may be using it for my wedding day as it totally matches my accent color! 🙂
noyah lipstick in the color “Deeply in Mauve” – 0.05 oz – Value $0.56
This color is pretty dark. I’m not a fan of the dark fall colors as they wash me out, but I do like that it has blue undertones. I didn’t put on a lip moisturizer underneath and it didn’t really drag which makes for a nice lipstick. I may give this brand a try again, but probably not this color.
Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser – 0.5 oz Value $4.00
I’m all for trying new cleanser’s but I feel like that is all I get in my boxes anymore… The smell is okay on this one, but it smells like something from my childhood, like a childlike strawberry. I do like the way my feels after using this, but I have a good regiment that I probably won’t get a full size of it.
I like how light this lotion is, but I’m not a fan of the scent. This will go in my sample stockpile. 🙂
ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream – 1 oz. – Value $12.00
I used for a few times and I’m pretty iffy about what I put in my hair because I know what works and what doesn’t but this seemed to work great. I will probably use up the sample then decide if I want to get a full size.
Jesse’s Girl Mineralized Baked Powder Eyeshadow in color “Graphite Frost” – FULL SIZE! – Value $3.99
This is actually my first time trying a baked eyeshadow and I am pleasantly surprised. I really like how this goes on to the eye. I’ve tried silver shadows before and they can be crazy dark, but I really like this one because it’s not at all. I will have to check out the other colors.
Was it worth it?
It was $10 for the bag and actually got about $24 worth of products. It was worth it for price, but I wasn’t in love with any of the products, thus why canceling my subscription. It was a good run and I may join back up again someday, but right now, it wasn’t worth it for me.
