Hello! It's another gorgeous day out, though I've been inside all day... I really should go outside and go for a walk or something. Today is my husband's one day off (he's working six days a week now) and he wants to just laze about, so I might make a solo journey somewhere.
This post is all about my May 2014 Ipsy Bag! This month's bag was a little "meh"; I got some products I couldn't use/didn't like and there were a few others that I really wish I had gotten. I wish there was a better way to let Ipsy know what I like and don't like; not sure if their current system is all that effective.
Quick info dump: Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription service where you get four or five different products every month to try. They can be a mix of full size and deluxe sample size products and there's also a good mix of high-end and drugstore brands. You also get a different makeup bag every month!
You can get these colors in the Mystical and Charmed palettes (there's one in each) and, going by the price per shadow in the palettes, this duo is worth about $4.85.
This next product is my favorite thing from this month's bag:
...and then this product was the most disappointing from this month's bag.
Finally, I got a product from a brand I've never heard of before: Jersey Shore Cosmetics!
Overall, I got five products: one was full sized and four were deluxe sample sized. I can't use one of them since it has argan oil in, but that's not a fault of the product so I don't hold it against it. I am really disappointed that I got a fragrance sample though, especially since there were a lot of other things I would have preferred getting. In my reviews, I let Ipsy know that I didn't like hair masks or fragrance sample, so hopefully I don't get more in the future. The total value of my May 2014 Ipsy Bag is $32.07, three times what I paid for it! I love Ipsy, even when it's pretty "meh", and I recommend giving it a try if you're looking for a monthly makeup thrill.
Thanks for reading! <3
