If you’re not familiar with it, Ipsy is a $10 (USD)/month subscription service (shipping included for the US; with an additional shipping fee for Canada). Each month, subscribers receive 4-5 deluxe sample or full-size beauty and skincare products. You also get a (sometimes) cute makeup bag containing all of the samples.
It’s been a pretty hectic month, so I haven’t tried most of these items. Quoted descriptions are from Ipsy’s site or the brand’s site.
Pacifica Blushious Coconut & Rose Infused Cheek Color in Wildrose (full size $12) – This is a “universally flattering cheek color with subtle pink and peach undertones that creates a natural blush that will highlight any complexion.”
Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss in Method to the Madness (full size $22) – Ipsy says this gloss is “easily buildable; one coat delivered a rosy sheen, two coats added a more noticeable flush to our lips.”
Smashbox Cosmetics Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 in Light (full size $39; sample value $9.75) – This BB cream has a bit of coverage with a dewy finish. It also hydrates and has added sun protection.
Jelly Pong Pong Coffee + Coconut Lip Scrub (full size $19) – “A little scoop of the shea-butter and sugar scrub buffs away any trace of flakes or dead skin, leaving lips soft, silky, and ready for lipstick application.”
Pretty Woman Nail Polish in I’m Not A Ballerina (full size $7.99) – This polish is a pale pink that is opaque in two coats. It did chip after a day, even with a top coat, which is unfortunate.
Bag Value: ~$71
