As I told on the last post, Ipsy Bag is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get full-size or deluxe-sized beauty products, plus a cute makeup bag. The cost is $10 each month with free shipping and it ships to U.S. and Canada. This month I received a super cute black faux leather bag with one full size and four deluxe samples products. Now let’s look at the items I got:
Ciaté London – Wonderwand Mascara in Black Magic – 0.118oz Value $7.20 (Full-Size 0.32oz $22.00)
I really liked this mascara, it lengthens my lashes and it makes me look like I’m wearing flash lashes while still volumizing and it doesn’t clump which is a big bonus. It is also a really nice deep black that just pop on the eyes. My only complaint is that the big brush makes it hard to reach the shorter lashes.
Pacifica – Coconut Blush – Full Size Value $18
I have not tried any Pacifica products before and I was really impressed with the great quality of the product, the duo blush palette is great and the colors are beautiful, perfect for summer. I used the both colors blended and it looked even prettier.
Smashbox – Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radiance – 0.25 oz Value $9.75 (Full-Size 1 oz $39.00)
This primer is a super product to go for. This really does what it claims, it gives a beautiful overall glow and it would work well even if you don’t apply foundation after. I admit, because I have combination skin and sometimes, I can be a little skeptical of radiance primers because some have a habit of making me appear more oily then glowy but this one works great, it mattifies the pores and also gives you a smooth finish.
Neogen – Serum in Oil Drop White Truffle – 0.52 oz Value $10.70 (Full-Size 1.69 oz $35.00)
I really like how it feels on my skin, it is a light serum and it seems to do a good job of moisturizing for my skin. I just started using so I can’t really say how it is going to work on my skin, but the first impression is great!
Papaya Enzyme – Power Cleanser – 0.03 oz each (received 5 packets) Value $7.10 (Full-Size 0.03 oz each/14 packets $20.00)
I have never used a power cleanser, this was new to me, at first, I was worried about adding too much water but I think it may be to whatever you think is best for you, I liked it and it made my skin soft after using, but I still prefer the liquids one. The packed is great to travel although for everyday is not the most convenient one.
This box value was $52.75, which is a really good value for a $10 bag, I got one full size item and great products samples, except for the power cleanser that I am not really sure, so I am really happy. I cannot wait for the next Ipsy Glam Bag!
