Subscription Nation: January 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag
New Year, New Me. Ipsy is here again to help us look flawless as we take on the world, to conquer all the challenges that get thrown our way. January’s theme is all about putting on a Game Face and crushing goals this year.
The bag this month is cute, but not something that I’ll likely use often just because it’s not my style. It’s super sporty – blue mesh combined with neon yellow and pink stripes down the center.
The goodies this month were nice to receive and are exactly what I would be looking for, but weren’t as super exciting as previous months.
I’ll be honest, I have never heard of Oribe before I got this goodie in my bag. I don’t often use dry shampoo but this is definitely one that I’d use to liven up my hair after a lazy day. Plus, it’s got a wonderful scent that lasts all day. Obvs, the one in the Ipsy bag is a sample size, but that just means it will be good for travel or taking on the go. Retail value is about $6.60.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will forever have a bag of black eyeliners as long as I’m on the Ipsy subscription. And honestly, that’s fine with me – I’m totally all about this liquid eyeliner and the smooth look once applied. Talk about some flawless cat eyes. I can’t think of anything better to have when taking on my New Years Resolutions. This was a full-size, which was nice! Retail value of $19.00.
Masks are life – and Charcoal Masks are my soul. Seriously, I swear charcoal masks have magic mixed into them to clear up your skin overnight. I haven’t had the opportunity to use this mask yet because I’m waiting for a special occasion, but I know already that it’s going to be absolutely wonderful. Retail value is $1.99.
First of all, I just absolutely love the sound of the brand name. Secondly, this liquid lipstick is just perfect! The color is to die for – and absolutely perfect for some subtle yet gorgeous looks while transitioning into spring. It’s not drying, which is definitely a nice perk, and is pretty long-lasting. Another full-size with a retail value of $6.
I love me a good shimmer, and this warm honey powder has just the right amount. Such a gorgeous glow! Its versatility is fantastic – it’s a pretty highlighter but it also looks really nice as an eyeshadow. I personally love using products like this on my lazy days, as highlighter and eyeshadow when I don’t want to go too crazy on eye colors. Retail value of about $2.80.
While these were pretty fab products, I wasn’t as excited about them as I could have been: the lip color that I received last month was pretty similar and I liked the application better, the dry shampoo probably won’t get used right away, and the eyeliner just adds to my growing collection. The value was on the lower side of what I’ve received in the past (about $36), but I know that I’ll love using everything that I got – which is the important part.
