Happy Wednesday! And we’re back at it again with a beauty post today! I wanted to talk to talk to y’all about a new program I’m trying out, and give you an honest, unsponsered review of it.
So if you’ve never heard of Ipsy, it’s this cute little subscription where you can get sample products based on your skin tone, eye color, hair color, and preferences every month for a little fee of $10.
I’ve been hearing a lot about ipsy, and thought “hey, I’ll give it a try”. I signed up and was put on a waitlist, and they gave me an option to get off by sharing with my friends and things. But I just decided to wait it out, and I revieced my first glam bag this week! I wanted to share with you what I got, and what I think of everything.
The first thing is this adorable make up bag. My favorite part is the zipper tag in the shape of lips, and the name “Ipsy” on it. The only thing is the shade of orange is not my taste, but hey, no being picky.
Well I’m already familiar with NYX, and I like them. I have a liquid lipstick in a similar shade to this lipstick, so I thought I knew what to expect. But I was wrong. I favor this butter lipstick much better than the liquid one. It goes on better, and feels amazing. The color is pretty pigmented, which everyone can appreciate. Definitely a good doupe brand, instead of buying high end.
The next thing is this loose powder eyeshadow. It’s a copper color from Marsk. I applied it with my fingertips, and it actually looks really dramatic with the lipstick. And I mean dramatic in a good way. It’s also so light that it could even be used as a highlighter in my opinion. It would be good as both in the summer time especially.
Now this brand, I’ve never heard of, but y’all know I’m always on the look out for some protection from my hair now that’s it’s dyed. I can say I LOVE this packaging. It’s so cute. But I’ve yet to use this product. I hope it works well on taming my flyaways because ever since I’ve dyed my hair, they’ve been going crazy. And since I blow dry and straighten my hair on a regular basis, this will probably come in handy.
I’m skeptical about this stuff. Everyone knows that I have a very hard time with keeping my lips from being chapped. I currently have around 6 different chapsticks in my purse that I carry around. The best kind is the wax that you apply with your finger. My favorite at the moment is the one I got on my visit to New Orleans.
This stuff is the best so far. Much better than an actual chap stick. The thing that makes me curious about what I got from Ipsy is that is says “anti-aging”. I tried it on and one thing I’m definitely impressed with is that it doesn’t leave a sticky residue and it didn’t have a taste either. But honestly, I think I’m just gonna stick to my wax tin from NOLA.
The last thing is this nail polish. I kind of have a nail polish collection. I have all kinds of colors, but I lack neutrals and nudes. This Trust Fund Beauty nail polish in the color Latte is a really pretty color. It kind of has a purple undertone. I did think this was going to be a nice little fragrance bottle from the packaging, so it was a surprise opening it.
It’s very beautiful on. I was weary about this color to begin with, but now I’m obsessed. I think this may be my go-to nail polish in the future. It’s pretty chip resistant, which can be hard to find.
All in all, this first unboxing of sample products was pretty great. I love the diversity in the type of products I received. I got something for my nails, eyes, lips, and hair. That’s not too shabby. I’m going to continue to be subscribed to them, and for sure happy. I think I’ll start showing y’all what I get on a normal basis.
