This is a subscription box (well, bag) that I have been waiting for a couple of months now. Ipsy has a smallish waiting list, but it's not too bad. Ipsy is a subscription service in which you pay $10.00/month (free shipping) and get a bag of deluxe samples and full-size beauty products. Here is what you will find in your mailbox each month when you get your Ipsy bag.
And here is what was inside...
Each month Ipsy will include this info card with a list of all of the month's contributing companies and coupon codes to order from their sites.
Another item that Ipsy included this month, is this brochure that showcases the new "em" makeup collection by Michelle Phan.
Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels ($7.50 value): I actually received 2 pairs of these. I haven't tried them yet, but they sound pretty nice.
NYX Single Eye Shadow in Golden Poppy ($4.50 value): this is actually a full-size product. It has a really pretty shimmer to it, too.
Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Rose Romance ($4.17 value): Another full-size product, this lip crayon is a pretty light pink color that's a bit sheer, very creamy, and has a nice minty scent.
Starlooks Kohl Eye Pencil in Obsidian ($12.00 value): This is another full-size product that came in my Ipsy bag. I've been needing an eye pencil so this was perfect timing. I did swatch this one on the back of my hand and it's a nice creamy texture. Even though it's a pencil-type eyeliner, it just doesn't have that harsh pencil quality. It's also very pigmented and I'm pretty sure it will last all day since I washed an entire sink of dishes and it didn't come off my hand (yes I still have to hand-wash dishes...LOL).
Elizabeth Mott It's So Big Volumizing Mascara ($8.00 value): This is a 4ml sample. I have not gotten around to trying it out yet, but this brand is new to me. According to the website, the hourglass-shaped brush is the secret to giving you volume and length. I'm not big on using mascaras, mainly because I wear glasses and every time I've tried mascara with glasses, my lashes end up brushing against my lenses, then it causes a mess, but I will definitely try this out.
Totaled up I came up with a value of around $36.17, which is over triple the price of the subscription itself. I think it's a pretty awesome way to try out new products that are out there. Do you subscribe to Ipsy? If you do, I would love for you to comment below with what you got in your bag. If you don't subscribe, but you'd like to, just click HERE to get started.
