IPSY is one of the most fun subscriptions you can buy. At $10 a month you totally get your money’s worth every single month. I’ve already used 2 of the 5 items in my box and I’ve only had it a few days. The bags seem to have a variety of items in them and they choose certain ones to put in everyone’s makeup bag.
For October the theme is Beauty Candy but I don’t know why. My package reminds me nothing of beauty candy but I still like it and feel my $10 was well spent.
What do we have here? Hand cream, hair balm, mascara, mini lipgloss and facial wipes are the treasures that came in a quilted plastic makeup bag in a beautiful teal shade.
FIGS & ROUGE SHEA BUTTER HAND CREAM was in each bag. The scents were Mango Mandarin or Rose Berry. Mine is the Rose Berry and will end up in a package to one of our readers since I understand it’s strongly scented and I don’t do fragrance well. The reviews on this hand cream are good though so I’m sure it will be well appreciated.
Some bags included this mini Starlooks gloss in the shade Guilty Pleasure. I’m a fan of Starlooks and this pretty color is already in my purse so that when I’m finally out and about I’ll have it with me. Starlooks glosses aren’t fragranced (yea!!) and they are nicely moisturizing without being too sticky.
NYC BIG BOLD CURL MASCARA is the other cosmetic item in my bag. I haven’t used it but IPSY tells me it’s “designed with our oversized brush to provide 12X more volume and 99% more curl in one just one swipe. The Lash Expand technology delivers quick dry volume to keep lashes flexible and comfortable for all day wear.” It’s always nice to try a new mascara!
The timing of my package was great because I can finally stand using my walker and I was so ready to wash my hair in the kitchen sink (I still can’t get upstairs). It wasn’t hard to have my husband find my shampoo and conditioner since those were in the shower but it was hard to tell him what product I wanted to put in my hair after it was washed. I have a (ahem) few items on the vanity. Along came IPSY and this ECRU PROTEIN BB CREAM. I have this in the full size and I love using it, as a matter of fact it was next on my list to review before my accident. My first official home hair session used ECRU and this ACACIA BB CREAM! It’s great to control frizz and flyaways.
Last but not least is the item I used the first night this came, SKYN ICELAND GLACIAL CLEANING CLOTHS. I’ve been very reliant on cleaning cloths the last two months so I was thrilled to have this package of 10. Normally I’d save it for travel but it’s being used right now. These are foaming and even though they say you don’t need to wash them off I have used a wet wash cloth on my face after to make sure there’s no residue. There are infused with Icelandic glacial waters and beneficial natural extracts. A great find in my package.
I’m thrilled with this group of products this month. All but one will be used by me so this was money well spent.
