Okay, so I'm cheating a little because this post is not very Christmassy but it is a gift idea. An Ipsy subscription would be a great gift for any girl but especially a one who likes to try new things or for a beauty lover who you aren't quite sure what to get. The subscription is $10 a month and usually there are about $40-$70 worth of products in the bag plus a cute bag.
In that spirit, here are my past few month's of Ipsy Bags and this months.
This month I was pretty happy with my Ipsy Bag. The bag itself is a thinner longer black bag with magenta lining and cute matching Ipsy heart pull.
The thing I was most excited about was the deluxe sample of Tarte's Lights Camera Lashes which is a blog and youtube favorite. The Deluxe sample is .10 oz and the full size is .24oz and retails for $20.00. Mascara is not something I like to spend a lot of money on, especially without having tested it, so I'm happy to be able to try Tarte's without buying the full size.
The next item will probably go to my mom as its not my type of product. Sexyhair 450° Blow Out Heat Defense Sprayis make your hair smooth, shiny and frizz free when blow dried, but I rarely blow dry my hair. The sample is 1.7oz and the full size is 4.2oz retailing for $18.95.
I like trying new facial cleansers but I try to do it when my skin is in good condition, so I will be waiting to try this next prooduct. Beauty Without Cruelty Premium Aromatherapy Facial Cleanser is a foaming face cleanser. The sample is 2oz and full size is 8.5oz retailing for $11.95.
The next product I was so excited about that I used it immediately, mostly because my lips were ridiculously chapped and I can't find anything when I want it since the move. It was the NYX Butter Lip Balm in Marshmallow its an apricot looking nude and on the lips it just slightly mutes my natural lip color. I received a full size product that would retail for $4.00. This was actually very moisturizing and after one application my lips felt back to normal.
The final product was an eyeshadow. Caitlyn Just Mineral Eye Polish in Orchid is supposed to be a multi-purpose eyeshadow powder. The website shows it used as eyeshadow, mascara, lipstick and more. This is yet another lovely champagne color, though I'm starting to wish Ipsy sent out some more vibrant colors. This is another full size product and it would retail for $15.00.
Overall this was a pretty great Ipsy Bag for $10.00.
What did you get this month? Would you want Ipsy for Christmas? Would you give Ipsy for Christmas?
