I was going to do a battle of the boxes with Birchbox, but after comparing the boxes I just thought that it wouldn't be fair to poor Birchbox as Ipsy knocks it out of the park!
The do give out a card that says what their theme is (Spring Fling),
but since it doesn't really give any information on the products I ended
up misplacing mine. Oops.
So I love the bag this
month! It is so cool and so my style! I'll be using it next year as a
pencil case for school (because really that's what I use these ipsy bags
for to store school supplies, since I already have my Betsey Johnson
Now on to the really fun stuff. The products!!
first thing that I got is a Yaby Concealer refill pan in Buff. I've herd
good things about Yaby and I was excited to try this! I used this under
my eyes (since it is a bit too light to use on other areas that need
concealing) but it worked really well and I looked wide awake! Totally
impressed. I assume this is a size of a normal refill so I'm valuing
this at $4.85.
Then there is the Mirabella Color Sheers Lipstick in Daydream. Which
I'll admit I would have preferred the Juice Beauty lip gloss, since
wearing lipstick just requires so many extra steps, but I'm not
complaining. The color is a beautiful pinkish purple shimmery color that
looks amazing on. Plus it doesn't dry out my lips. Can you believe this
is full size and that the full size value of this is $22?
The next item is the Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Perfume Roll On. I love
Pacifica products. They all smell so amazing and this one is no
exception. It's a pretty strong floral scent and while I normally don't
really care for florals, I do really like this one! Plus it's a roll on
and roll on perfumes are like the bestest things ever! This is a full
size and goes for $12!
Then there is the Zoya Nail Polish in Gie Gie. This is
from their 2013 Spring Collection, and I was actually meaning to buy
this color, so yay! I love Zoya's polishes and this one was no
exception. It was so pretty and sparkly. I loved it. This is full size
and goes for $8.
The last thing I got, which was an extra to people who referred two
people last month, is an Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Space Cowboy.
This is a brand new product and I really wanted one! I'll admit I was a
bit bummed that I didn't get the pink one, but I prefer this one over
the greenish one. This is a super sparkly lightish tan color that after
trying it out I'm thrilled I got this! I tend to do more natural makeup
looks then daring looks and this eyeshadow was the perfect combination
of both. This is valued at $20!
My Ipsy bag is valued
at 74.15!! That is awesome considering I only paid $10! Plus not only
was I introduced to a couple new brands I also got some things from
brands that I had been wanting! Ipsy is a total win and I would totally
recommend them! I love my bag! (:
