I’ve always thought about signing up for one of these monthly makeup delivery programs, but I just couldn’t decide if it was worth it.  Would I get enough products that I like to make it worth it?  Or should I just put the $10 towards something that I know that I want?  Lucky for me, Christy Classified posted on her Instagram stories that she had 5 free Ipsy bag codes for the first 5 people to DM her, and I got one!  So here is my very first Ispy bag and my thought on it!

For $10 a month, Ipsy will send you 5 mini size products based on the preferences that you fill out online.  It is a really good way to test new things and find products you might not have bought!  Here are the products I received in my January Ipsy bag!

Full size price: $48

We all know how I feel about face masks–I’m obsessed.  So I was very excited to receive a new one in my Ipsy bag!  Online, this mask has great reviews.  I have never tried this brand before, so I am excited to see how I like it and see if I have found a new favorite face mask!  This mask says that it will exfoliate, detox, brighten, smooth, and tighten all in just 10 minutes!

Kokie Kissable Liquid Lipstick

Price: $6

I believe that this product is full size!  I really love the color, this is the range that I always gravitate towards when choosing a liquid lip!  It’s not too dark, but still gives off a bold statement.  I think the formula feels nice and comfortable, and it wouldn’t be too expensive to restock on this item, which is a plus!

Luna Eyeshadow Single

Price: $15

I also believe that this is a full size single of this eyeshadow!  I love this shade, especially for this time of year!  It is the prettiest shimmery pink, and it was extremely creamy and pigmented.  I will definitely be using this as an all over lid shade!

Bella Pierre Eyebrow Gel

Full size price: $25

I am definitely intrigued by this product, but I’m not sure if this will be a hit or a miss for me.  I am pretty picky when it comes to eyebrow products, and I am generally not a gel person, I prefer pencils.  But, I am actually glad I got this in the Ipsy bag because I would probably never buy a gel product to try!  This is a good opportunity to see if I like it!

 

 

 

Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

Full size price: $24

This was the product I was the most excited about receiving!  This highlighter was all over YouTube a few years ago, I swear everyone was talking about it!  It is still gorgeous, it’s such a natural highlight that gives a great glow to the skin.  It would be an amazing bridal highlight!  It’s a “lit from within” type of glow, and who doesn’t want that?  Having this mini size to travel with is going to be amazing!

Overall, I really enjoyed my Ipsy bag!  The Verdict: I signed up for 3 more months.   We will see if I continue to like it!  I just really liked the fact that most of these products were new to me, and this gives me a way to branch out to different brands for just $10 a month!  Plus, the little makeup bag is so cute!  I use so many of these in my large kit that I take to events and films, so having more is never a bad thing!  I’m excited to see what comes in my next Ipsy bag!
