Ipsy Subscription September

This month I signed up for a new box called Ipsy. It’s only $10 a month and each month comes with/in a cute makeup bag! Here’s some information about this subscription service from the site:

“Michelle Phan has inspired countless women around the world through her beauty video tutorials on YouTube. Every day, the question Michelle gets asked the most is: “What are the right products for me?”

With infinite beauty product combinations in the marketplace, choosing the best items for your needs can be a challenge! That was why Michelle created ipsy. Michelle and her team of stylists have selected products they love, for you to try.

Each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. ”

Sounds promising, right? Here’s what I received this month:


When the mailperson walked in with this shiny pink envelope, I got so excited! I love shiny things!

The Life Palette is a sample pallet from the Em Cosmetics line themed around “Career Life”.  It’s a pretty small sample so I’m not sure if I’ll try but the colors are pretty. 1368708_10151919159182146_1798372524_nIt’s So Big Volumizing Mascara from Elizabeth Mott

I love getting mascara in boxes. They are all so different and it’s really nice to get to experiment with a nice brand.

John Frieda makes hair products that really work with my flat, fine hair. I’ll be putting these to use ASAP!

NYX Eyeshadow in Sparkle White

I’m not a huge pencil user since I prefer liquid liner but it’s nice to have a backup and I do swear by black. I’m not sure if I’m sold on this color eyeshadow yet as it looks a little shiny green in the light but I have used this brand before and it’s usually very pretty on. I really hope this turns out more gold than green!

So that’s it for my Ipsy Glam Bag. So far, I definitely wasn’t as impressed as with Birchbox but I do love the little bag included. I wonder how many little makeup bags I actually need though. I’ll probably try this once more and if the quality doesn’t improve for me, I’ll cancel.



These weren’t from Ipsy but I wanted to share anyway as they came in the mail the same day!
