What is a Ipsy?
Every month subscribers receive 4-5 beauty products based on their personal preference/beauty profile! In addition to your subscription service and a new glam bag every month, the perks of being an Ipster are endless! Ipsters can redeem points for reviews completed on individual products received and get additional Full Sized/Deluxe samples included in their monthly glam bag! Check out a few of my Ipsy point redemption’s below! There are also Ipsy Offers which give extreme discounts on selected items each month!
Here is what I received in my November 2015 Glam Bag:
First, the Makeup Items:
- Luxie Beauty Matte Eyeshadow Pan No. 290 Aubergine (eggplant)
- Mai Couture Blush Papier (ipsters will receive either shade Montecito or Sicily). Shown above in Sicily.
- tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon (ipsters will receive either shade Florence Fig, Chili Red, or Nantucket Nude.). Shown above in Chili Red.
The color of the shadow is pretty awesome for a burgundy/eggplant! What is better though is the formula! It is infused with vitamin C & E to condition and protect the lids! I like the idea of the blush papers so it’s always a fun idea to try, BUT I would never buy these. The idea is solid, but the whole thing with smearing paper on my face just didn’t work for me. The blush paper took off more blush than it distributed 😦 The matte lip crayon had an awesome color payout that can be lightly blotted to build color. The best thing for me is the size, since I often find myself stashing lipsticks and balms in my pocket this mini is perfect!
More Makeup, Glam Bag Design, and More Makeup!!!!
- Smashbox Cosmetics Full Exposure Mascara Deluxe Sample (3ml)
- Figs & Rouge Mattifying Emulsion & Pore Refiner (0.5 oz)
- November #beautyblast Glam Bag
I’m a fan of Smashbox and love the no clumps, and no flakes formula! The primer is nice, it is a gel formula that refines & minimizes pores!
As mentioned before, Ipsy offers a way for subscribers to earn points to redeem Full Size/Deluxe items! I was able to add on these items, thanks to all my saved Ipsy Points. For those of you new to Ipsy points, you receive them every time you review products, share your bag, refer a friend, and/or share items from your glam room on Facebook/Twitter. The products are periodically released and range from 250 to 1500 points each.
For anyone who is interested in immersing themselves in an endless cascade of make-up and beauty choices and get out of the boring patterns of their everyday life, this is the subscription box for you! I often get asked about my favorite subscription boxes… and I must admit that Ipsy is one of those at the top of my list!
Did you get your Ipsy bag? What did you think?
