Ipsy January 2015

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 months theme is Fresh Start.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives.

The bag this time is a good size and half blue, half white.  The card doesn’t list anything as you can get all info online.


Hikari Cosmetics Eye Liner in Storm-$13.00 Full Size

I love this color!!!! I think a silver grey liner is fabulous and I’m so happy right now.  Even if everything else in my bag sucks I would be okay.  This is getting put into use right away.  I’ve never heard of the brand before but really don’t care.


La Fresh Eco-Beauty Be Good. Good Day. Day Moisturizer-15g $11.76

Along with the standard apply after washing instructions this also says to “Exercise modestly, drink plenty of water, eat healthy meals, sleep enough hours, hug often & smile more”.  We would all be more beautiful if we remembered to do all of that.  This absorbed really nicely into my skin but I’m not overly fond of the scent.


(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm-7g $8.40

This is so close to being full sized. This is a shiny clear lip gel. It’s slightly tingly and I like the way it feels on my lips.  I can never have enough lip balms and have been getting some great ones from boxes lately.


Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion-8mL

Not sure of a value on this one as the site doesn’t say how bog the full size is.  That retails for $29.00 so this might be about $4 maybe?  It can be worn alone or mixed with your foundation.  The shimmer it provides is so subtle that you could definitely wear it all the time.  Another win for me.

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow in Treasure-$2.90 Full Size

They don’t appear to sell eyeshadow singles on their website but this color is in one of their palettes.  I really like this color too!  Its a great warm bronze with tons of shimmer and yet it’s still a neutral.

This months Ipsy was a great bag for me.  The only thing I didn’t like was the smell of the moisturizer.  All the makeup was great and in colors I wear.  The value of the bag is right around $40, which is good too.  You also get to review your items on the site and get points which can be used to get other products.  After the four bags I’ve received I am almost at enough to get something and waiting one more month won’t be hard.  This one was definitely one of my best boxes yet.
