Today's review is of my Ipsy makeup bag for the month. Ipsy is a service where "each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month. " If you are interested, please click here to use my referral code and help me earn free bags.
The theme this month is "Summer Lovin'". And I guess all of the products are those that you might wear more in the summer (lip balm, beachy hair spray, etc). You get about 5 things per bag, but not everyone gets the same 5 things. There might be 20 samples you could potentially receive, but based on your answers to the "style quiz", determines what samples you get.
So, here is what I got this month:
|Photo credit: Me...this is my backyard! |
*Octavio Molina Hair, La Playa Salt Spray. It is to create "texture + volume", Well, my hair needs the volume, and texture (lets face it). But I hate crunchy hair. Hopefully this won't dry my hair out or make it crunchy. $15.50 for 4oz (we received a 2oz sample, so $7.25)
*Essie Nail Polish in "Fashion Playground" (which is a "pistachio green with subtle shimmer"). $8.50
*Be A Bombshell Lip Balm in "French Kiss" (oh la la), which is a light pink color, really doesn't leave much color at all, actually. $14
*City Color Cosmetics HD Powder, which is supposed to "set your foundation for a smooth, matte finish." Ok, I'll give it a whirl...but probably not until school or I have someplace important to go. I'm not wasting it on just running errands! $5.99 for 7 grams (we got a 4g sample, so lets just say worth $3 because I don't feel like doing math)
*Vasanti Cosmetics, Brighten Up Exfoliating Cleanser. It's a nice little travel size, so next week when we take a weekend flow trip, this will fit nicely in my bag (baby). I couldn't find this exact product on the Vasanti website, but others from that Brighten Up line are $10.
So, for $10, I got $42.75 worth of product. I say that's a pretty good deal.
