Wow!! Somehow, it's been over a year since the last time I blogged about our Ipsy bag subscriptions. That's not to say that we haven't been receiving them (we have!!) only that I have been way too lazy or busy to blog about them. I guess now's a great time to fix that ;)
You might be wondering what Ipsy is. Well, it's a monthly makeup subscription service. Basically, for $10 each month (with free shipping) you get a small makeup bag with 5 or 6 products inside. Two of the products are usually a full size item while the rest are sample sizes. This is great for me as I hate spending 10 bucks on a tube of lipstick only to find that the color looks terrible on me so this allows me to try and sample new colors and products without making a real commitment.
Currently, both Alyssa and I receive our own Ipsy Glam bags however, Alyssa is currently in Texas visiting family so I am not going to blog about her products since I want her bag to be a surprise when she gets home.. (Sorry Lyss!!) But I had some really cool gems in my bag this month :)
This month, the theme for the bag was Rebel featuring very bright, bold cosmetics.
First, the makeup bag.
This is probably one of the cutest bags I have received in the year that I have been getting the Ipsy Glam Bags. Not sure why I like this one so much, whether is the bold colors or the cute graffiti look but either way, I think it's adorable. I do wish, however, that Ipsy would think about making the zippers on the top of the bags rather than on the side as it's harder to get makeup brushes in the bag as it is. However, I am willing to bet this baby is going to get a lot of use this month (and maybe longer).
So, what was that cute bag stuffed with??
Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Pout Potion in Famous
Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Pout Potion in Famous. Lipgloss should smell awesome (your lips are right under your nose after all). This one has the addictive scent of a piña colada enjoyed poolside with a full color shine perfect for day or night. Famous is a purply-pink shade with a bit of blue undertones. A bit too bright of a color for me but I will probably end up giving this one to Alyssa to play with. It's a cute color, just a bit too young and hip for a 40 year old momma.. lol
This one I'm looking forward to trying as I enjoy sampling different face cleaners and with the dry heat here in the desert, anything that hydrates is a plus. I haven't tried it yet but it definitely smells pretty good .
I just recently started using oil hair masks after being extremely hesitant as I have somewhat oily hair. I'll try this one but I have a feeling it won't replace my Novex Argan Oil Deep Conditioning Mask.
ColourPop Cosmetics Creme Gel Eyeliner in Get Paid
Get Paid is a metallic Rose Gold color which is a big difference to the old reliable black I like to use but I am looking forward to experimenting with this eyeliner and seeing how it looks with a nice metallic smoking eye on date night.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge
The final product in my bag was Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge. Enter Urban Decay—the original beauty rebel. They brought their play game, seriously coloring the waters with an insane range of bright, bold and totally unexpected shades. Think electric purples, stormy charcoals, neon teal. All inspired by the grit and glamour of the city. This multifaceted shadow switches up its look in different lighting. Duo the intrigue. Duo the fun.
I REALLY like Urban Decay's products and I love the look of this eyeshadow. I love metallics like bronze and copper in eye shadows, and Lounge is a decadent reddish-brown topped with teal-green shimmer and would probably pair nicely with a copper color. I just might have to try this one with the Get Paid Eyeliner :)
Ispy bags are always a lot of fun. You can get your own by visiting the Ipsy website and signing up :)
