Ipsy Review – December 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!)

Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick in Nudie Red – FULL SIZE! Value $10
I saw that a few readers had mentioned that their lipstick had an odd smell. For me, the scent isn’t appealing, but it isn’t bothersome either. Here it is swatched:
I like the color, and the pigment is good too. And of course, I love that Pacifica products are free of parabens, phthalates, gluten, etc).
Klorane Floral Water Makeup Remover – 25 ml Value $1.50
I’ve sampled this before. It is gentle, smells good and gets the job done. Not a huge sized sample, but not a wasted sample either!
Formula X Nail Color in Revved Up – 4 ml Value $3.65
I think this is a fun and festive nail polish mini! (Also – it makes me want to buy this Bottle Service Set from Sephora!)
Acure Cell Stimulating Facial Mask – 1 oz Value $7.40
I love the Acure brand. This mask has a minty/natural scent, is gentle, and takes about 10-15 minutes to work. It isn’t one of those tightening masks, so it would probably work well for sensitive skin.
CrownBrush Brow Duo Brush – Value $3.28
Ipsy sends out makeup brushes frequently, and that’s great for me. Decent quality inexpensive brushes are always useful!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $25. Surprisingly, that’s pretty low for Ipsy. I’ll use everything, so that value is fine with me. Also I think the bag is so cute this month! What do you think of the December Ipsy Glam Bag? Which products are you getting this month?
