Do you ever wonder why you see so many reviews for IPSY? So many bloggers will be reviewing their June bags and that’s because it’s one of the best bargains around. You will always get your money’s worth out of the bag and the items in it but whether you’ll like those items is the question.
There’s been a lot of talk about the good and the bad of IPSY this month. Has the good outweighed the bad? In my opinion yes, yet with other people I’ve noticed talk of quitting.
There were 3 full size items in my subscription this month – Be A Bombshell mascara, NYX Butter Gloss and Ofra Eyebrow Pencil. The two deluxe samples were Marc Anthony Beach Spray and Real Tree fragrance.
I’m going from the bottom of the ladder to the top
Bottom rung contains Be A Bombshell mascara. Now why would a brand as good as Be A Bombshell with a full size product be at the bottom rung? Open it, smell it, and you’ll know. I’ve never smelled a mascara this strong and petroleum smelling. I’d be afraid to put it near my eyes. I haven’t heard any bloggers say they liked the mascara so for me it’s pure garbage. Ipsy and BaB testers blew it big time with this stinkbomb.
Second rung – Real Tree fragrance spray. It could be wonderful, it could stink, but I’ll never know. I don’t wear fragrance so for me this isn’t a happy product.
Moving up to the third rung is Marc Anthony Beach Spray. My blog partner Lisa loves Marc Anthony and loves Beach Spray so she’ll get this at our next exchange meeting.
Fourth rung so not much higher to go – NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brule. I only own a few NYX products so this is a nice addition in an easy for me to wear shade.
Fifth rung and my favorite product – OFRA Eyebrow Pencil. I really laughed out loud when I opened my bag and saw this. In my last Wantable subscription I received this and was so close to keeping it but decided to do a giveaway with the complete box. So karma (and Ipsy) brought it back to my life. I really like this. It’s supposed to be a Universal shade but I think it’s a dark brown. Either way, it works perfectly for me.
And last but not least, the item that I think everyone got the most excited about
the Rebecca Minkoff cosmetic bag. A pretty floral bag holds this month’s crew.
The month’s “theme” was “Pretty in Paradise”. With pretty eyes, a glossy lip, beachy hair and a nice fragrance these 5 items do fit the theme.
