It’s my favorite time of the month! The bright pink envelope from IPSY shows up in my mailbox and I’m a giddy school girl on Christmas. If you don’t know, for $10 a month IPSY sends 4-5 beauty products (think make-up, hair, lotions, etc.) that are customized just for you and delivered in a super cute GLAM BAG. Here’s what was in my June bag…
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil – I’m lucky enough to have naturally think eyebrows (ones that got me teased horribly in middle school but who’s laughing now?!) so I’ve only recently gotten into brow products. One end is a spooley to help brush your brows, the other is a universal shade to help fill and define. IT Cosmetics is a high end brand and I’m excited to play with this. Full Size – $24 (This product alone is worth over 2x the cost of the box itself.)
Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer - This is not a new product to me. I’ve been known to purchase the full size in the past. I stopped buying it simply because I’d always get samples in bags like these and I’m definitely not complaining about it. This is a great size to travel with and the product is great. Full Size – $36
Formula X Power Source – I’ve heard nothing but great things about this Sephora exclusive formula but never wanted to spend the money on it. Simply because I’ve got so much nail polish that I don’t have room for anymore. It’s a small sample which is fine because I can’t ever remember a time that I actually finished an entire bottle of nail polish and the color promises to be a universal shade. Full Size – $10.50
tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Venetian Gold - When I opened my bag, I thought this product was broken. I couldn’t find the missing cap! Until I realized I’m a dumb ass and the packaging completely tricked me. While this is a pretty color, I’m not quite sure what I’ll do with this. Full Size – $26
ALTCHEK MD Eye Gel Pads - I can’t get enough of these eye pad samples! I got two pair and I’ve got them on as I type this. ::sigh:: It’s so soothing and relaxing especially at the end of a hot summer day. These would be great to put on before a night out. Full Size – $20 for 5 pair
Only one of this month’s products were truly full size but the cost of that was over twice the cost of the Glam Bag itself. IPSY is my favorite subscription box service and for $10 a month, I’d say it’s totally worth you trying it out, too! Sign up for IPSY here.
