I've confessed my love for subscription boxes in the past, right? I just had to spill about the latest one to join my subscription box family. (Ok well, this one is a bag, but you get my point.) I joined the wait list for ipsy a few months ago and finally got my first glam bag this week! After just one experience, I can already tell that this one is right up my alley!
Photobombing my own stuff.... FAIL!
Each month with ipsy you will receive a healthy mix of deluxe samples and full sized beauty products all tucked into an adorable little bag. I'm more than happy to accumulate these little guys as they will help me organize the Marry Poppins like diaper bag I'm workin' with. The subscription costs you $10 a month and you definitely get your money's worth!
Here's what I got!
Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush|| This brush retails for $6.99. It is so soft and applies shadows effortlessly. Something about this brush makes me feel like I have more control over where I place product on my lid. Admittedly, I'm not a big eyeshadow girl, so a brush like this one is brand new to my collection!
Hot Singles Eyeshadow by NYX - ADDICTION|| This product retails for $4.50. Again, eye shadow isn't a major part of my beauty routine. I normally reserve eye shadow for special occasions only, but I did through some on today, you know, for research purposes. ;) This shadow is surprisingly pigmented and paired with my new brush, it applied evenly. I don't hate it...
Water- Proof Eye Pencil by Pacifica - FRINGE || The full size version of this product retails for $11.00. The brand Pacifica prides itself on being 100% vegan and cruelty free which is pretty cool! The color they sent me is exactly what I like to wear. I've only swatched this on the back of my hand so far, and it was a very smooth application. I will get back to you after I've worn it all day.
Don't Despair, Repair | Deep Conditioning Hair Mask || The full size version of this product retails for $26.00. I used this the night I received my ipsy glam bag in the mail! You know I'm all about a good hair mask... This wasn't it. :( I wanted to love it, really! It didn't really leave my hair feeling any softer and I ended up having to shampoo my hair again just to get the sticky residue out. I will certainly give it another shot, but my first impression wasn't so hot.
Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss Stick - Basic Instinct || This product retails for $19.00. Amazing! Hands down my favorite product in this glam bag. I love the formula and the color selection is outstanding! After wearing it for a few hours, it was staying with me! Staying power is the key to my heart when it comes to lipstick. I will certainly be purchasing this stuff in additional shades!
An added little bonus with ipsy is that each company offers you a promo code should you choose to purchase additional products from them. For example, that lip gloss stick I got came with a promo code giving me 20% off my purchase plus 2 deluxe samples! Twist my arm why don't ya!
