My First Ipsy Glam Bag

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

I love the idea of subscription services like Rockbox or Barkbox! Everyone loves getting packages, especially me! It's so exciting to get something new in the mail. I have never signed up for a subscription service (besides Dollar Shave Club) for beauty products. It was always difficult for me to justify the price. 
One of my friends signed up for Ipsy, and I was really intrigued. It's a subscription service that sends you a few full sized items in a cute make up bag for just $10 a month.  
When you sign up you take a quick beauty quiz that asks you questions about your skin tone, your style and how adventurous you are with make up. The quiz helps them pick products that you will like and can actually use. 
I just got my first glam bag! So far I am super impressed. I feel that every single one of the products is something I would actually buy from a store. They are full sized, which makes me feel that I'm getting my money's worth. The makeup bag is really useful too! 
Here is what I got in my August bag: 
Star Looks Luxe Longwear Eye Liner Pen
-This has a really cool felt tip that will be really great for a winged look. I haven't used liquid liner in a while so I hope I'm not too rusty!

Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Oil Treatment
-So excited to use this! My hair needs a little lovin. 

Clear Clinic Laboratories Vanished Clear Spot Treatment
-I know I will be using this..we all get spots from time to time.

Hikari Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Merlot
-This was the first product I tried out! I love it! I don't think I would ever pick this up myself, because it's a lot darker than I'd usually wear. It's a great thick gloss that seems to be long lasting. The color is insane and it's going to be great this fall.

Alia Cosmetics Luxury Nail Lacquer in Mister Pookies
-Arguably the most exciting product to me. I love my nail polish! While I'm an Essie girl this color is great and I can't wait to paint my nails tonight! 

Leave me a comment: Have you guys tried subscription services before? Any I'm missing out on? Are you using Ipsy? What do you think??
