I have been on the Ipsy bag waitlist for about a year now. I finally got off earlier this month. I didn’t think I was going to get the December bag, so I was super suprised when it came in the mail! Since I didn’t know it was coming I had absolutely no spoilers! It was really fun opening it up and seeing what i got.
I’m sure most of you all know what Ipsy is, but for those of you who don’t It is a $10 monthly subscription bag. It comes with sample size (sometimes full size) beauty products, and of course a cute little bag to put them in! So here is what I got…….
Starting off with the bag itself. The theme of this bag was “Carpe P.M”, so they made the bag this fuzzy, bright pink Wristlet. I had already seen spoilers of it since my Ipsy came really close to the end of the month. I think it was an adorable Idea. I will probably give it to my little niece, so she can carry around her little toys and things.
Tarte Maracuja Oil
I always want to buy this whenever I go to Sephora or Ulta, so I was excited to see it in my glam bag. I normally don’t like to use oils on my face because i find that most oils feel greasy on my face. I use beauty oils in my hair to make it shiny and soft. I was happy to receive a generous sample in my bag.
Mad Lash Mascara
I know a lot of people don’t like to receive mascara samples, but I love trying out new mascaras. I haven’t tried this mascara by The Balm yet, so I was happy to recieve this product in my bag as well.
Nailtini Eyeshadow in Firestarter
This eyeshadow is a gorgeous redish bronzy shade. I also believe that this is a full size product. I haven’t tried any of Nailtini’s cosmetics before so I am excited to try this as well. Definitely another hit.
Symphony Beauty Snow Cream Moisturizer
I have never heard of this brand before or used any of their products.This was kind of a weird product. I opened the pot and the mosturizer is a very strange spongy, putty like texture. Its also very thin and watery at the same time. I have sensitive skin and don’t like to experiment with skincare to much so the weird texture is kind of a turnoff.
Hikari Eyeliner in Iris
This was another full size product. It retails for $13, so it paid for the bag which is a pretty good deal. It is a Hikari eyeliner in purple. I like using eyeliners and trying new ones, but I don’t think purple eyeliner is for me. I didn’t open it, so I could pass it along to my cousin.
So what’s the verdict on my first Ipsy Glambag? I love it. I like that i get to try out all these different products from brands I have never tried or heard heard of before. Of course there are a few hits and misses, but if I wanted something specific I would go out and buy it. I wouldn’t look for it in a randomized subscription.
Although, I noticed that I only received eye products and skincare. I do wish I got some face or lip products. Maybe It will help if I go customize my Ipsy profile some more. Hopefully next time I will receive a lip color or cheek product. Either way I loved my first Ipsy bag!
