Ipsy Review – September 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!)
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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!)

HIKARI Lipstick in Cabernet – FULL SIZE Value $13
Pacifica 7 Free Nail Color in Red Red Wine – FULL SIZE! Value $9
I guess I like wine-inspired makeup because I am loving both of these shades! I’ve seen a few manicure photos on Instagram with this Pacifica shade and it is gorgeous!
NYX Eyeshadow in Bling Bling Bling – FULL SIZE! Value $4.50
Crown Brush Crease and Shadow Brush – Retail Value $17.50, on sale for $7
This NYX eyeshadow isn’t as highly pigmented as some of the other shades I’ve tried from the brand, but that’s OK in the case of silver eyeshadow.
I always love getting new makeup brushes in subscription boxes (no matter how much I clean them, new brushes are always better than old ones!), and this dual ended one is very convenient.
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask – 1 oz Value $5
I like that this hair mask is phthalate and paraben free, but I’ve tried it before and it did nothing for my hair.
Verdict: I like this month’s Ipsy box much more than last month. I received about $40 worth of items, and I love that almost everything was full-sized! The makeup colors are all appropriate for fall, and even the bag is cute! (And it doesn’t have a chemical smell!)
What did you think of Ipsy this month? Which samples did you get?
