My First Ipsy Glam Bag!
If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen that I cancelled Birchbox last month. I kept getting weird things and found the samples piling up in a corner of my room, instead of actually being used. I heard about Ipsy and HAD to try it. I was reading promises of great, name brand samples AND a cute bag every month for $10??? Sign me up!!! I was only on the wait list for a month or so before I got the email saying my first bag would be arriving in June!
The bag was REBECCA MINKOFF. That alone is worth the $10 to me.
The mascara is "be a bombshell brand". I honestly didn't try it because the smell is TERRIBLE. It smells like burnt rubber!!!!
The perfume is Realtree "for her". It smells so good! I like that this is a little larger than most sample sizes. The lovely people at Ipsy sent the perfume in a little plastic bag to avoid leaking! I thought that was brilliant. I've had countless perfumes break in my Birchbox boxes.
The eyebrow pencil is OFRA. I don't really do much to my eyebrows because I'm always afraid of messing them up. I plan on trying it and then giving it to my best friend, if she wants it!
Ahhhh Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee. YES PLEASE. I am most excited about this. The color is so pretty! Not too pigmented. Subtle and perf!
Marc Anthony's Dream Waves Beach Spray was the last item in the bag. It smells like coconuts! Perfect for the summer months. My hair has a slight wave to it already and this helps define them a little better!
Overall, I am happy with Ipsy! I like that there are some full sized products. I'm a little bummed about the way the mascara smells, but everything else made up for it for sure!
