I received my Ipsy bag in the mail yesterday and was super excited to look at all the products. For those that don’t know what Ipsy is, it is a $10 a month subscrition service to beauty and makeup products. You will receive 4-5 products a month. Usually they are the sample/travel sizes but every once in a while you will get a full size item. You take a beauty quiz when you sign up so that they can match products to your preferences.
I find that by offering the sample/travel items it gives you an idea of the product without having to pay full price. That way if you like it, you can buy it. If you don’t, no worries…you didn’t spend an arm and a leg.
Here is my January Glam Bag:
Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush
J. Cat Gel Liner in Blue Black
Pacifica Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow in Ethereal
Manna Kadar Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion
Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream
So for $10 I received 4 sample/travel items, 1 full size item, a zippered pouch and shipping. Not bad, especially if you are wanting to try different products but don’t have a lot of money to spend on full price items.
If you are interested in signing up for Ipsy, click here. Follow the instructions to get yourself off the waitlist and you’ll then be signed up for a monthly Ipsy bag. Best thing, you can cancel at anytime.
Now for my review:
Liner brush – I have a couple of Real Techniques brushes and I love them. The liner brush looks exactly like my Smashbox liner brush.
J. Cat Eye liner – I swatched this on the back of my hand and now it won’t rub off. Awesome in my book!
Pacifica Eye Shadow – This is a beautiful high-lighting/brow bone shadow. It is just silky and buttery smooth.
Shimmer lotion – I rubbed this on my hands and was amazed at how sheer it was and it didn’t feel sticky or leave any weird residue. It added a very dewy glow to my skin without looking like a had anything one. In other words, healthy glow.
Eye Cream – I’ve never used any eye creams but I will definitely give this one a shot. I’m now almost 31 and have a few lines around my eyes. I know the benefits of Avocado and Argan oil so I might as well give it a shot.
I can’t wait to see what February’s Glam Bag is. I look forward to the middle of the month (13th-15th) as I just love opening packages!
As always, if you have any questions, comment and I will get back to you!
