IPSY is a $10 a month beauty subscription service that includes a makeup bag and 5 different samples. I like that they include a wide range of products instead of giving everyone the same thing like most of the other subscription boxes.
They’ve definitely been stepping up their game when it comes to the bags. This one is a gunmetal, faux leather material with a mesh pattern. I like the bag but the products were kinda meh for me this month. Here’s what I got…
IT COSMETICS BYE BYE UNDEREYE ILLUMINATION in MEDIUM ($4.50)- I feel like this is one of those products that people either love or hate. It’s a very thick concealer but personally, I like that. It feels hydrating and my eyes are always dry from allergies. And this stuff lasts FOREVER because you only need a tiny bit. I have the regular version but this was my first time trying the illuminating. Can’t say that I really notice a difference…
SMASHBOX CAMERA READY BB CREAM in LIGHT/MEDIUM ($10)- For some reason this is really dark on me and looks kinda orange. I’ll have to try it again in the spring when I’m not quite so pale.
MANNA KADAR BEAUTY PARADISE BLUSH ($19)- meh. This is bright peachy coral blush. It’s supposed to be a universal color so it’s probably on the sheer side. But I’ve got a ton of blushes so I probably won’t this one as it’s made in China and I’m not especially attracted to the color
GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE DEAD SEA WASH OFF MASK ($5)- I really like the packaging of this mask. I hate when mud masks come in tubs and you get them all under your nails. I’ve used this mask once so far and I liked it, although there wasn’t a noticeable difference afterwards.
RIMMEL LONDON LIP BALM by KATE MOSS ($5.50)- I can never have enough lip balm and this one is pretty good. It smells yummy and I like the packaging. This went right into my purse!
IPSY is $10 a month and the value of my January bag was almost $45. Not bad! I won’t use the blush and I may or may not use the bb cream but everything else was good. I’ll post my SEPHORA PLAY review next week!
