Sometimes IPSY Glam Bags are AMAZING.
Sometimes they are MEH.
But, for $10 I will never complain!
The bag itself for April was super cute. Here are the items I received:
Here is what I thought, and if I would PURCHASE or PASS:
Ofra Cosmetics Peach Blush – I am not sure what color I got, but it sure was way too dark for my pasty skin. It was good, but I will PASS.
Mint Pear Vitamin C Serum – This stuff kinda reminded me of WATER. Being called “Mint Pear” I was prepared for a beautiful scent or refreshing tingle and got neither. PASS.
Elizabeth Mott “Show Me Your Shimmer” Hi-lighter and Shadow – I liked that this could double as an eye shadow or a hi-lighter. I however have a million of both. PASS.
EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip – The BEST thin tip eyeliner I have ever personally tried. The brush comes to a super fine tip and is perfect for extremely detailed winged eyeliner. It has a special cap that cushions the tip to prevent you from smushing the super fine brush. Loved it. PURCHASE!
Hey Honey “Besame Mucho” Lip Balm – It claims to be for super dry lips. I work outdoors and being in the hard sun/wind/cold/rain gives me extremely chapped lips so I was excited to try it. For an average lip balm it would be okay, but I disagree that it works well for extra dry lips. I found it to be a little thin for what I would expect from a heavy-duty balm and it doesn’t feel like it gets very deep into your skin at all. PASS. Cudos to their marketing team for the cute name though!
Well, sorry I wasn’t super excited about these items, but I hope you girls got something you LOVE! Don’t forget to review your items subscribers! I think that is the best part about IPSY is reviewing and saving your points for something that you really do want!!
If you aren’t familiar with IPSY, it is a beauty subscription that charges you $10 a month and sends you a cute makeup bag along with 5 samples monthly.
