Ipsy Review – June 2014
Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection on the cheap!
(FYI – Just like Birchbox, Ipsy sends out many different variations of their bag each month – so my review is just one of the bag variations you might receive!)
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
Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Lash Out Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $15
Nicka K Shimmer Eye Liner -FULL SIZE! Value $5
I’ve been trying to branch out to non-black or brown eyeliners, but I think this green sparkle one is a little too much for me to handle!
NYC Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee – FULL SIZE! Value $5
Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach – 45 ml Value $3
I found this gloss to be a little sticky when I first tried it, but after reading reviews on their site, it seems like if you give it a little time the stickiness will go away.
Laneige BB Cushion Sample – Value $2?
While I wasn’t happy to get a one-time use sample as one of my Ipsy items, I was happy to see that this sample included 3 different skin tone colors. The light worked for my skin tone, but I found the scent of this product to be stronger than I like in a BB Cream, foundation, etc.
Verdict: I paid $10 for this box and received about $30 worth of items. The value is pretty good, and 3 out of the 5 items were full sized, but I wish my bag had more of a mix of higher end brands and drugstore brands like some previous Ipsy bags have had. (I do love the bag though!)
What did you get in your June Ipsy bag?
