I’ve always thought about signing up for one of these monthly makeup delivery programs, but I just couldn’t decide if it was worth it. Would I get enough products that I like to make it worth it? Or should I just put the $10 towards something that I know that I want? Lucky for me, Christy Classified posted on her Instagram stories that she had 5 free Ipsy bag codes for the first 5 people to DM her, and I got one! So here is my very first Ispy bag and my thought on it!
For $10 a month, Ipsy will send you 5 mini size products based on the preferences that you fill out online. It is a really good way to test new things and find products you might not have bought! Here are the products I received in my January Ipsy bag!
Purlisse Blue Lotus Seed Face Mask
Full size price: $48
We all know how I feel about face masks–I’m obsessed. So I was very excited to receive a new one in my Ipsy bag! Online, this mask has great reviews. I have never tried this brand before, so I am excited to see how I like it and see if I have found a new favorite face mask! This mask says that it will exfoliate, detox, brighten, smooth, and tighten all in just 10 minutes!
I believe that this product is full size! I really love the color, this is the range that I always gravitate towards when choosing a liquid lip! It’s not too dark, but still gives off a bold statement. I think the formula feels nice and comfortable, and it wouldn’t be too expensive to restock on this item, which is a plus!
I also believe that this is a full size single of this eyeshadow! I love this shade, especially for this time of year! It is the prettiest shimmery pink, and it was extremely creamy and pigmented. I will definitely be using this as an all over lid shade!
Full size price: $25
I am definitely intrigued by this product, but I’m not sure if this will be a hit or a miss for me. I am pretty picky when it comes to eyebrow products, and I am generally not a gel person, I prefer pencils. But, I am actually glad I got this in the Ipsy bag because I would probably never buy a gel product to try! This is a good opportunity to see if I like it!
Full size price: $24
This was the product I was the most excited about receiving! This highlighter was all over YouTube a few years ago, I swear everyone was talking about it! It is still gorgeous, it’s such a natural highlight that gives a great glow to the skin. It would be an amazing bridal highlight! It’s a “lit from within” type of glow, and who doesn’t want that? Having this mini size to travel with is going to be amazing!
Overall, I really enjoyed my Ipsy bag! The Verdict: I signed up for 3 more months. We will see if I continue to like it! I just really liked the fact that most of these products were new to me, and this gives me a way to branch out to different brands for just $10 a month! Plus, the little makeup bag is so cute! I use so many of these in my large kit that I take to events and films, so having more is never a bad thing! I’m excited to see what comes in my next Ipsy bag!
