Holy crap it finally showed up! For some reason my Ipsy bag took forever this month compared to everyone else. Ispy is a beauty subscription that comes in a bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products. All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This month’s theme was Girl Meets Glitter. They interpret this as “Life is short. Wear Glitter. The secret to making the ordinary extraordinary? Add some glitter and shimmer and shine to your everyday look.” I am partial to a bit of glitter but have no interest in looking like Ke$ha so hoping this isn’t too over the top. All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive.
That distinctive pink mailer!
The theme card.
This months makeup bag.
This bag is actual made by Forever 21 for Ipsy. The nice thing is that the sparkles are inside the fabric so you don’t get them everywhere when you touch it.
Be a Bombshell Eye Base in Submissive-2.5g $14.00 Full Size
This is a really, really great colour. It’s a bronze colour with a gold shimmer. They recommend it as a base for a smokey eye but it gives this barely there shimmer that I love on it’s own.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye in Neutral Medium-3.25mL $0.33
This is just about too dark for me. I would have rather received the light colour but with a bit of blending I can use this. It is a full coverage concealer but it still lets your skin show through so you don’t look like you’ve got a ton of makeup on.
J.Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint in Red Potion-10ml $4.99 Full Size
Sooooo I went to put this on to see about the colour and my daughter looks at me and says “Wow your lips are so purple”…….
This is fushia. Dark, dark fushia. They have so many colours that would be better for me. I hate the applicator.It’s just a squeeze tube. I squeezed the tiniest amount onto a lip brush and had plenty to do my whole lips. I don’t even know if I would be wearing this for a special night out because I don’t think anyone would be able to look elsewhere then my lips. I’m sad.
Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray-43g $1.38
I need both volume and shine in my hair so I’m liking this.
Temptu S/B Highlighter in Pink Pearl-3mL $2.75
Nice soft shimmer and I think it puts a good glow where I want it.
After all the waiting I am happy with my bag. Beyond the lip paint everything else I like and will use. The value of this bag was $23.45, most of which was the eye base but it’s still twice what I paid so I have no complaints.
