Ipsy Review – January 2015
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).

Coastal Scents Liquid Eyeliner in Jet – FULL SIZE! Value $2.95
Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush – Value $10
This eyeliner dried pretty quickly and was easy enough to apply – I can’t believe the full sized version is less than $3! And as always, I’m happy to get another makeup brush!
probelle Nail Lacquer in Into The Blue – FULL SIZE! Value $6
Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm – .20 oz Value $6.85
Blue polish seems to be trending in subscription boxes lately!
I’ve received this lip balm is one of my favorites – and I’m always happy to have more. (This .20 oz version is actually preferable for me compared to the full size version since this one comes with the right kind of lip balm applicator tip).
I had tried Pacifica eyeshadow before in an ipsy bag, and found the pigmentation was a little on the low side. I’m not sure if they changed the formula, but this one is much better in terms of pigmentation – it’s a great highlighter shade for me. (I’m estimating the value since Pacifica only sells eye shadow palettes.
Verdict: I’m happy that every item in this box is full-sized or is as good as full sized to me! The value of my bag this month is about $31, and I think I’ll use everything, so I’m happy with the January ipsy bag.
What did you get from ipsy this month?
