November Ipsy Bag

Ipsy is a monthly subscription bag that's filled with beauty products, skin and hair care products neatly packed into a cute travel size bag. Each month you never know what you're going to get. When you sign up for Ipsy you take a little quiz so they can find out what you do and don't like. You can let them know things like your chronic dry skin or sensitive to scented lotions. They'll send you 4-6 products and one is always full size. You can try them out and if you end up liking something in the bag they'll give you a discount code to get the full product for a cheaper rate. It's a great way to try out different brands and products you might not normally buy otherwise.

1. Be A Bombshell Eye Base

I've tried out a few products from this brand and I'm not too impressed by this eye base. Normally, I use the Urban Decay primer and then an eye shadow. Don't break a good tradition. Ya know?

2. Elizabeth Mott:You're So Fine Eyeliner
I've always ever used a pencil eye liner so this is something new for me. It has a really fine point so it's going to take awhile before my hand gets steady enough to draw like that.

3. J. Catt Beauty: Wonder Lip Paint
Hate. Hate. Hate. I seriously hate this product. I hardly ever wear anything on my lips. I have really sensitive lips and putting anything on them is iffy. I've told ipsy every month they've sent me something for my lips that I do not use them and they continue to ship them. STOP! Also this color is awful. I'm not 19 and in the club.

4. Marc Anthony: Oil of Morocco Volume Shine Hairspray
This stuff is amazing. The smell is perfect and it makes your hair shine without giving it that oily look. I think I've found a new hairspray.

5. TEMPTU S/B Highlighter
I have the benefit highlighter in a stick and it's really easy to use but hard to blend. This is a liquid and it goes on really smoothly. I'm use to a liquid foundation cover up so this was super easy to apply. It didn't have a weird smell either. So far I'm liking it!
If you've never heard of Ipsy or you want to give it a try, spend the 10.00 a month (and that includes shipping!) and try it out!


Why Girls Are Weird said...

This month was my last Ipsy (I opted to stop subscribing) and I was really excited to get nail polish in my final bag. I also got a lip crayon in a berry color, which I love. Oh and the eyeliner, which I haven't used yet. Like you I usually use pencil (or markers) so hopefully I'll be able to steady my hands.

I just kind of realized that I prefer getting nail polish, so why waste money on Ipsy when I can just be subscribed to Julep Maven instead. Makes so much more sense.

I actually just started subscribing and got the same bag you posted (except I didn't get the eyeliner, I can't remember off the top of my head what came in it's place, but it's cool cuz I am very happy with my stay put Marc Jacob's eyeliner). Excited to see what comes this month!

Question: I just signed up for Ipsy but it says that I am on the list and will be notified when I will get mine. How long did you have to wait to start getting yours in the mail?
I can opt to share the page and tell the world about ipsy etc. But would rather not, unless I have to wait forever!!!
