Subscription Nation: April Ipsy Bag
It’s time to throw in the towels and jump on the bandwagon. I’ve joined a beauty bag subscription! And I am thrilled.
Ipsy sends you beauty bags on a monthly basis and it’s only $10 a month. When you sign up, they give you a survey to complete to determine what products suit you best and fit into your beauty routine. Then, they send you a cute makeup bag with five products inside, some full size and some sample sizes, and all selected just for you!
This month was my first time to get anything and I was excited to see the bag in the mail. The products are so fun – especially the Lisa Frank brush (hello childhood!). Continue reading to find out more about this month’s surprises.
The Makeup Bag
Say that it’s because I worked at a movie theater for almost five years, but I just love the idea of having a ticket as a bag. Of course, our tickets looked nothing like this. I’m pretty sure that I’ll end up using this as a cute clutch purse at some point just because I want to show it off.
With a retail value of $7.49, this product pretty much makes up for most of the cost of the bag. The color is super cute and bright. It’s absolutely perfect for spring!
I LOVE getting to try new hair products, so I’m super excited about this little baby. The full-size is 3.4 fl. oz. and has a value of $26. The one in my bag is 1/10 of the size, so I’ll give it a market value of about $2.60.
Complete with magical unicorns and all the bright rainbow colors, this brush is just full of nostalgia (and happiness!). The brush is super soft and I can’t wait to try it out. It has a market value of $5, so my bag is all paid off for with these first three items – and that’s not even including the value of the bag itself!
This was one of the highlighted items this month. It goes on very smoothly – I’m sure it makes some great cat eyes! I kind of wish it was in a fun color, like blue or purple, but black is definitely a staple color that I’ll always be in need of. This gel pencil has a market value of $5.
I’m loving the shade of this eye shadow (250K8). It’s earthy, it’s sparkly – basically everything a girl needs. Peek Beauty started from Instagram, which is amazing! They’re selling a set of four of these mini containers for $25, so I’ll give this a value of about $6.50.
Overall, I’m super impressed with the goodies I got this month. Everything is worth about $25, which more than doubles my initial “investment”. The products are all fun and I’m looking forward to testing them all out! I’d give it a 10/10.
