Ipsy Glam Bag {July 2014}


After reading my BoxyCharm unboxing post from a couple of days ago, you know how much I am loving the SIMPLE nature of beauty subscriptions.  I recently started subscribing to Ipsy and not only is the price right {$10 per month}, I have a blast trying all of the new, high-end products {that I probably wouldn’t be able to afford to try otherwise}, and the pink metallic bubble envelope it arrives in makes me smile from ear to ear.

What I got this month:

Every month the Ipsy products arrive alongside a cute little makeup bag {hence the title of the subscription, Ipsy “Glam Bag”}.  This month the makeup bag was a cute little pink, leather-like bag with a scallop edge.  To die for, really.  This month’s theme for the products was titled “Sensationally Sunkissed” and I received the following as a part of that theme.

Sexy Hair Beach Spray – deluxe sample size product

Not a bad month, Ipsy!

If I am being honest with you, though, I have already placed the dark tanning oil and beach spray into my giveaway basket.  I know I will not use the products regularly and to waste them to try just once seemed silly.  However, I will for sure be using the bronzer, lip balm, and eye shadow.  And let me tell you, one thing I have learned recently is that sample sized products can go a LONG way.  Even though that eye shadow is itty bitty in size, there is a decent amount of uses in that little tube {as in probably more uses than I will take advantage of before the need to toss it}.

So, for $10 this month I got a cute makeup bag and three products to add to my makeup arsenal!  Based on a couple of estimates for sample sizes {when compared to full size pricing}, I put the value of the products in my bag at $36.73!!  And that doesn’t even count the makeup bag itself.  Love you, Ipsy!
