Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription – get 5 items in a cute bag for $10 a month! It’s the most popular subscription box (even though it’s a bag) with over 1.3 million subscribers and 100k new ones monthly. If you’re an Ipsy fan, be sure to watch for my monthly spoiler posts – I pick one reader randomly from the comments as my referral link for most of the month. Several of the past winners were able to load up on bonus items!
Ipsy always comes in a fab pink mailer bag!
Remember to subscribe to the newsletter so you see the July 2016 Ipsy Spoilers – I will open the referral link giveaway with the first spoiler!
I *love* the envelope mailer. Of course I’m thrilled that I got a graphic envelope! The Ipsy theme for June is “Rebel Rebel. ”
Everything in my bag for June!
Kymmi Roc designed the bag!
Sephora FORMULA X Nail Polish in Wingwoman ($3.50) A bright, bold, almost red pink. I’m afraid we probably won’t see too much more of Sephora in ipsy now that Sephora Play is rolling, so it was nice to see this polish mini!
Crown Brush 3 Tone Bronzer ($3.60) A bronzer, blush and highlighter (swatched below) – I thought this size palette was just too small to make this combo effective. Ipsy suggests swirling them all together, which is what you pretty much have to do. It’s pretty but does contain talc, so it went in “the pile.”
clariSEA Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask ($3.81) I like this brand and this is a cool product, combining Activated Bamboo Charcoal, Kaolin Clay and Calendula to help draw out impurities and soothe your face at the same time! I do wish it actually wasn’t a powder, but that also means it won’t go bad.
I’m not very good with dark matte shadows, but a small sample like this gives me a chance to play and have some fun with it without buying a whole palette or pan. Of course the Balm’s shadows are always great!
Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Pout Potion in Secret ($14) This is marked as a shimmer gloss on BAB’s site, and it’s clearly not shimmery. I can’t ever get pumped up over another BAB item. It’s fine but not really exciting when there are so many other fantastic brands that you can try that don’t appear exclusively in subscription boxes. (Has anyone ever seen Be A Bombshell for sale… ANYWHERE?!).
I… didn’t really like my bag all that much – except for the awesome graffiti pouch. It was really kind of blah and the value wasn’t there this month – about $26. That’s probably the lowest value ipsy bag that I’ve ever received.
