Ipsy Review – February 2014
Ipsy is one of the most popular subscription boxes, and it’s not surprising – Ipsy is only $10 a month, and with every glam bag you typically get a great mix of full size and deluxe size makeup and beauty products. (And you get a makeup bag every month too!)
The Subscription Box: Ipsy
The Cost: $10 a month (free shipping)
The Products: Full size and samples of makeup and beauty products. (Plus a makeup bag!)
Ships to: US and Canada
POP Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal – 4 g Value $8
ZOYA Nail Lacquer in Odette – FULL SIZE! Value $9
ZOYA is one of my favorite nail polish brands – their formula is 5-Free and has great staying power. There were two color options this month for Ipsters, this orchid purple shade, or a light pink shade. I was hoping for the other color, but now that I have this purple shade in my hands I love it. (I still might try to get the pink shade too via swaps though!)
Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter – 2.5 oz Value $4.70
Pacifica is another brand I absolutely love -their products are free of parabens, phthalates, petroleum, etc. This body butter is super moisturizing, but I’m not sure if I love the scent yet.
City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon – FULL SIZE! Value $3
Eyetini Eye Cordial Shadow + Base in Ambrosia – FULL SIZE! Value $18
In my experience Ipsy tends to include a mix of higher end brands and some lower price point brands. It’s a great way to get a lot of full sized makeup every month. (I was a little shocked when I looked up this blush to see the full size version only costs $3!)
Verdict: This month I received about $43 worth of items. (Plus the makeup bag with the cute lining!) I thought all the products were very appropriate for the theme: The Look of Love, and I love that everything was full sized or deluxe sized.
What did you think of Ipsy this month? Which products did you get?
