Hello! Welcome to 2014! I'm pretty excited to be here, if for no other reason than I don't have to write "2013" when I write the date anymore (I have mild triskaidekaphobia so it was a struggle). Well, that and the fact that I'm still alive is pretty exciting, too, but I wasn't expecting it to be otherwise.
Is this my first post of 2014? I can't actually remember if my last holiday haul post made it in before hand or not. I know I started it before 2014, but I don't think it posted in time. As a first post of 2014, this is a little disappointing considered how late I am... As the title says, this is my December 2013 Ipsy bag unboxing/unbagging! I got this way back in December, before Christmas, but I haven't gotten around to getting a blog post written about it.
For those of you who don't know, Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription where you get a cute make-up bag filled with five products. They're mostly drugstore/mid-range and lately have been almost all full sized. Overall, I think Ipsy is a great value and a really fun way to give yourself a little surprise treat every month.
Like most subscription boxes, Ipsy comes with a little info card that talks about the theme of the box and lists what brands participated.
The first product I got in my bag (and this is in no particular order), was a pair of Ardell lashes.
Next up is The One Stick in Girl Crush from Be A Bombshell.
The next, and tied for most disappointing, is the Nicka K New York nail polish in the color Classic Taupe.
The other product that disappointed me was the NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in the color Cream.
The final product I got in my box was an eyeshadow trio from Pop Beauty.
So overall, in my December 2013 Ipsy bag I got four full sized products and one "deluxe sample" (kind of), at a total value of $36.18. For $10, including shipped and the make-up bag, this was well worth the money and I'm very happy, even if I found two of the products to be slightly disappointing.
Thanks for reading! <3
