The Subscription Box: Ipsy
Ipsy is a subscription service that delivers 4-5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products along with a cute makeup bag each month for $10 (free shipping). I have been with Ipsy since July 2013 and have been 80% satisfied with their service, although some months the products have went against what I answered on my beauty quiz but I usually always swap for items that I want for that month. The theme for this month: 19 Reasons. 19 reason to make it an amazing new year, a million reasons to be a beautiful new you. I wonder what the 19 reasons are?
This month, I was pretty pleased with Ipsy. I loved four of the products I received but the only negative thing I have to say would be the makeup bag. As soon as I opened the pink mailer, a strong and unpleasant odor smacked me right in the face. Ten minutes later the smell gave me a headache. Supposedly the smell is from the ink that was used to make the makeup bag, but it smelled like ammonia. I had to air the makeup bag outside since the smell was killing me.
The goodies in the bag:
Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Penny: (full size is $14.99)
A copper color with shimmer, very creamy and glides easily but I am not a fan of the color or shimmery products. Also the material is made out of plastic, does not twist up so how would I sharpen this? Hmmmm eh pass.
Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion (full size is $21.99)
100% natural, USDA-Certified Organic. Fragrance-free and alcohol-free, this formula is very light and gentle enough for sensitive skin. It has vitamins and antioxidants to boost skin’s defenses and leaves your skin healthier. I really love how this feels on my face. Great job Ipsy.
* Moroccan Argan Oil intensely hydrates and replenishes skin
* Rosewater evens out skin tone and smoothes texture
* Shea Butter locks in moisture and improves skin's elasticity.
LOVE IT!!!!! Score!
MicaBeauty Tinted Lip Balm in Natural (full size $30)
Looks like a rosy pink but it actually goes on like a pinky nude which is very pretty. I love it! All you need is a little on your lips because it’s very pigmented. L-O-V-E IT!!!! SCORE!
Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner $6 (full size $17.95)
Very light weigh, leaves hair soft and non-greasy. Love it! Another score!
willa® on the go face towelettes 10CT ($4.50)
These are natural towelettes which are enhanced with soothing lavender for a light, cool and refreshing clean. Love it!
