About the Bag (from Ipsy): Stash your summer beauty faves in this colorful bag that’s bold, bright, and unique (just like you).
Wanna know what’s in my bag? My June Ipsy Glam Bag, that is. For those of you who don’t know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service. For $10 a month, Ipsy will send you a makeup bag and five beauty samples. I know that not everyone enjoys a subscription service, and that people have mixed reviews on them but every experience is different. Also, some people prefer getting full size items versus samples. Personally, for the price I don’t mind the samples. For just $10 a month you get to try brands that you’ve been eyeing or discover brands that you’ve never even heard of! Plus, you get a cute little bag to use for whatever your heart desires. Over the years, I’ve gotten items in a subscription box that I’ve went out and purchased because of how much I loved the sample.
It does seem that not as many people are subscribed to Ipsy these days. But, there are literally so many subscription services out there now. Ipsy was the first subscription service that I signed up for, and over time I’ve un-subbed and re-subbed. I find that when dealing with subscription services, it’s best to keep an open mind. Sometimes you get a winner, and sometimes you get a dud. There are times when I receive my glam bag and it’s just not a good month. Ipsy can get really repetitive with the items in the glam bags, but for the most part their usually pretty good. Plus, seeing that pink package in the mail every month is like an early Christmas present to yourself… from yourself. And who doesn’t love presents?
So without further ado, here is what I recieved in my June glam bag. Swatches of the eyeshadow and eyeliner will be at the end of the post. The shadow is gorgeous, but was super hard to swatch because of how thick and clumpy the texture is.
- SAHI COSMETICS – Eyeshadow in Dubai
SOO AE – Charcoal Clay Bubble Mask
MINTPEAR – Rounded Soft Blend M64 Brush
- BEAUTY FOR REAL – I-Line 24-7 Eyeliner in In the Navy
BAREMINERALS – Skinlongevity® Vital Power Serum
I would have loved to receive more makeup products, but two out of five isn’t bad. Plus, you can never have to many face masks or serums! Gotta’ focus on the skincare. I do however feel as if I’ve received a brush in every single bag lately. It isn’t the biggest issue, but it would’ve been nice to have gotten something other than a brush. All in all, I’m pleased with my glam bag and can’t wait for July’s! (My Birthday Month, any fellow CANCERS out there?) ♋
What subscription services are you currently receiving, or thinking about signing up for? I’m always on the hunt for another one to check out, so let me know! Currently, I’m looking into Boxycharm, so what are your thoughts on it? Also, for any fellow Ipsy Glam Bag peeps out there – what did you get in your June bag?
Until next time,
