After you sign up you'll take a style survey to determine what kinds of products you like and don't like. Bags are customized so if you got an Ipsy bag this month, yours is probably slightly different from mine.
Ipsy costs $10 a month, which is a steal I think. My bag was worth nearly $40, according to Amazon prices. Y'all know I like a good deal!
This month, I got:
- Bumble and Bumble Straight Blow Dry Balm
- Crown Brush Deluxe Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet
- Tarte Cosmetics Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara
- NYX Butter Lip Balm in Ladyfingers
- Cailyn Cosmetics Eye Polish in Orchid
There isn't one thing I'm not excited to try. I was a bit skeptical about the eye polish, and expected a ton of fallout (it's a loose powder), but it went on beautifully! Here I am wearing it yesterday. Mixed with a little bit of brown shadow in the crease.
Pretty! I also used the Tarte mascara, which is fine. I like how it's a traditional bristle brush and not a rubber one like a lot of them are nowadays.
What a great introduction to Ipsy! They have a lot to live up to for next month :). You can check them out here if you're interested in signing up. FYI, when you sign up you automatically get wait listed... lame. But, you can bypass the wait list by following a bunch of their stylists on YouTube and Instagram and inviting friends to join on Facebook. If you'd like a direct invite from me, leave your email address in a comment and I'll send you one (and delete your comment as soon as I invite you).
If you subscribe to Ipsy, tell me what you got in your bag this month! What did you love, and was there anything you weren't excited about?
Also, since I'm using makeup more now I thought it'd be fun to do a mini series on my blog trying new colors, techniques, etc. I haven't figured out all the details, but something like that could be a lot of fun, so keep an eye out for that!
