This was the longest wait EVAR. I signed up for Ipsy in early July and found out I wouldn’t receive my first bag until August. They charged me on August 1 and then didn’t even ship my bag out until the 13th and I received it on the 18th. By then I was DYING to get it.
So here’s what I got:
Briogeo Blossom & Bloom ginseng + biotin volumizing blow dry spray (1 oz trial size). I love the smell. I’m not much of a hair blow dryer but I’m about to get my hair cut shorter and it can always use some volume. You can get a 5.1 oz bottle of this on Amazon for $18 so for the size the value is $3.50.
Lather Ultra Mild Face Wash (1 oz trial size). I have very sensitive skin, especially on my acne and eczema prone face, so this is perfect. I’ll try it tonight! A 6 oz bottle on Amazon is $19 so for the size the value is $3.17.
Aila Nail Lacquer in Mister Pookies [looks to be a grey/purple] (full size). I love nail polish even though I rarely wear it. This looks like a great color for fall so I’ll be looking at it again in October. According to the website this color is “steel grey with purple undertones” and that the polish is “5 Free*, Gluten Free, Cruelty Free” – all good to know! $17.
* I had to look up 5 Free, which is an Aila term meaning that their products don’t contain Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Dibutyl phthalate (DBT), or Camphor
Starlooks Pro Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen (full size). I’m going to guess the color is black, though there is no color indicator on the package other than it is black. I am not an eyeliner person but this might be fun to play with. $19.
Hikari Lip Gloss in Merlot (full size). Love love love lip gloss. This is avery nice color that I expected to not be as dark when I put it on. This is, however, high pigment so the color stays true from the tube to your lips. I had to blot a bit, but I like the color and will definitely wear it. $13.
That bag! The Ipsy black and white houndstooth bag with hot pink accents. Great quality bag, much better than I was expecting. I will definitely use this. I don’t know how much they cost but on ebay they are going for around $4.99 and up.
The Ipsy Glam Bag is $10 a month. All the samples and full size products come in a reuseable makeup bag, a different one every month. If you sign up right now your wait won’t be as long as mine.
