February Ipsy Bag

Just like there are such things as magazine subscriptions, there are also beauty subscriptions; my personal favorite is Ipsy. Okay okay... it's the only one that I've tried, but comparing it to other subscriptions that I've seen throughout the WWW, I picked the right one.

Ipsy sends me 5ish products + a makeup bag once per month at a flat fee of $10. Free shipping is included obvi. Most products are full sizes, but other times they'll send deluxe sample sizes to try out. I actually fell in love with Buxom lip glosses because of my subscription. I had never even heard of them before, but once I got the deluxe sample size, I was sold. I now own 3 full size and 2 sample sizes. Well played, Ipsy.

Anyways, the bag is customized to ME based upon a quiz that I took when I first signed up. Therefore, everyone's bag is different. I just think that's so neat because they send me things that I'll actually use.
J. Cat eyelashes in 213. Value: $3.99. Create some drama with these voluminous faux eyelashes. Each includes an individual eyelash adhesive. Real human hair.

Pop Beauty Plump Pout in Fuchsia Freesia. Value: $16. This plumping pout perfector combines the high-shine of a lacquered gloss with the long wear of a stain and is packed full of lip-plumping peptides and avocado & jojoba oils. Lightweight, creamy texture immediately merges with lips & delivers intense glossy colour for an extremely long-lasting finish.

Jesse's Girl in Brown Eyed Girl. Value: $3.99. Nine coordinating eye shadows in a sleek plastic case.

Zoya nail polish in Odette. Value: $9. Full-coverage, sultry orchid maroon cream.

Dr. Lin Skincare Acne Spot Corrector. Value: $7.99. Formulated with 5% benzoyl peroxide to kill acne-causing bacteria by treating at the first sign of breakouts. Helps to reduce redness and inflammation, while fading the discoloration of dark and red marks often seen in acne damaged skin. Works on old and new marks. Evens out skin tone and is hydroquinone-free.

As you can see, this bag came with over $40 worth of products. That makes me smile real big! I sorta feel like I won the lotto or something cool like that. By the way, I also wanted to mention that no, this is not a sponsored post. These are my opinions solely. I love my Ipsy subscription so much that I wanted to share it with y'all! You can sign up too by going HERE.

For those of you who have the subscription already, what was your favorite product that you received? I liked everything in my bag this month for the most part. My favorite has to be the acne spot corrector. Lord knows that I need that.

  2. Oh man, can I afford Ipsy AND Birchbox?? It's so tempting! I do like how Birchbox sends me "expensive" products...most of the full sized items are $20+...therefore it's great to test something I wouldn't otherwise buy because of the price tag.

  4. I had never tried dry shampoo until ipsy sent me Pssst and I love it. I've liked some of the eyeliners too, and the ivory lace highlighting pencil has been a favorite.

  6. I get Birchbox but have been wanting to try Ipsy... my husband probably wouldn't like me having two subscriptions though haha. LOVE Buxom glosses! I got one with my Sephora rewards points and was hooked from then on! My favorite (actually the only one I've tried) is Katie, ha what a coincidence!

  9. I totally need to do this. Maybe a few times a year I could make it my gift to myself. Do you have to do like a years worth of subscriptions or can you do month-to-month??

  10. I got the same eyelashes, nail polish and the pop gloss. I am not sure if I am going to like the pop color since it is really bright. That eye shadow palette looks really good. I got a face mask and blush too. Ipsy is by far my favorite of the boxes too.

  11. I love the Pop gloss & pink makeup bag! I didn't get the palette but a mineral purple shadow instead, I might have to give the nail polish a whirl this week :-)

  12. I just started getting Ipsy last month, I'm waiting for my February one. I've been getting Birchbox for the past year but I like how Ipsy sends full sized products.

    I used to get the Ipsy bag but I cancelled it after getting quite a bit of stuff I wasn't a fan of....I must not do well on my quizzes :P
