March is always a difficult month for me; you'd think I'd be happy that it's March because it's the tail-end of my least favorite quarter of the year, but to combines everything I hate about all the seasons in one terrible month. Rain, snow, cold, damp, bugs; you name it, March has it. Which is why I'm always super happy to see spring palettes, themes, and collections start to pop up since they help take my mind off the horror that is March!
Quick Run-Down: $10 a month beauty/makeup subscription service; also get a different and unique makeup bag each month; five samples a month, sometimes more, but rare; more likely to get color cosmetics and full size samples than in other $10-$15, but more samples from online-only (and possibly overpriced) brands; there is a rewards program where you earn points for referring people and reviewing your samples, but they expire quickly and can only be redeemed for certain extras (normally left over samples from previous bags). If you're interested in signing up for Ipsy, I'd really appreciate it if you'd use my referral link here, otherwise you can go directly to the Ipsy website.
£14, or a little less than $20, which is pretty expensive, considering the quality of this brush. It's not very dense and the bristles are synthetic. It reminds me of an EcoTools brush, which is significantly cheaper. It is a very soft brush, which is nice, and I will definitely get use out of it, but I would not pay almost $20 for it. I'm not sure if this is the full size (the website says it also comes with a carry case; this brush only came in a plastic sleeve), but I'm going to assume that it is.
Overall, I got three full size products (the lipstick, dry shampoo, and the brush) and two deluxe size samples (the bronzer and body oil) for a total value of about $41.33 (which is without the value of the Temptu bronzer since I couldn't calculate it). That sounds like an awesome deal, especially for only $10 a month, but if you take out the over-priced $20 brush, it brings the value down to around $21 (again, sans the bronzer). Still, I doubled my money and I will use four out of five products, so this bag was definitely worth it.
Thanks for reading! <3
