Ipsy Review – November 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).
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!)

Figs & Rouge Avance Flawless Effects Skincare Mattifying Emulsion Primer – 15 ml Value $18.60
This primer is paraben-free and I really like the finish it provides. I haven’t been wearing it for the whole day yet to see how long the mattifying effects last, but so far I’m shine free!
SLMissGlam Blusher Brush – Value $14.50
I love getting makeup brushes in my Ispy glam bags – I can’t remember the last time I actually bought a makeup brush. (Plus the pink bejeweled handle is fun!)
Absolute New York Precision Liquid Liner – FULL SIZE! Value $10
This liner is both paraben and fragrance free! I didn’t find the line to be any thinner than other liquid liners, (nothing too groundbreaking here), but still a good black eyeliner. (Swatched in a picture below).
ModelCo Highlighting Trio – FULL SIZE! Value $22
All the shades in this trio have a nice dewy/luminous finish to them. The pigment is great, and they are blendable too. (Highlighter, blush, and bronzer swatched below).
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara – .14 oz Value $7.40
This is one of the best mascaras I’ve sampled recently. The formula adds a good amount of length and volume. It took me a lot of brush strokes to get the amount of volume/length I wanted, but there were no clumping issues, so that’s fine by me!
Verdict: This month’s glam bag has a value of about $72. I think that maybe be one of my highest-value glam bags ever! Plus I’ll use every item, and there are no brands that feel cheap to me. This is my best Ipsy month in a while!
Also – I love the bag itself this month – it matches my phone case!
