I received my December Ipsy bag last week, and I have to say the contents are pretty dull in that there was nothing in it I felt truly excited about receiving, but at least one item that I know I love. Here’s what was in my bag:
Sexy Hair Style Sexy Hair 450 Blow Out– I am so sick of getting hair products in my Ipsy bags. Most of the time I end up giving these to my mom! I’ll give this one a try, but there’s only so many hair products I can use, considering I don’t use a lot of styling products.
Beauty Without Cruelty AHA Cleanser– I like these mini skincare items for traveling. I’ve never used anything like this before either.
NYX Butter Balm– I received this in the most boring color ever, because it has NO effect on my lips. It might as well be clear. My shade is Marshmallow, which is a nude, but it seriously goes on my lips clear. This is my first time trying a Butter Balm.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara– I love this mascara and am happy to receive this deluxe sample so I can enjoy it again! This is definitely the best item in the bag.
Cailyn Cosmetics Just Mineral Eye Polish– This is an interesting product. It looks like a nail polish bottle, but it’s an eyeshadow with a sponge type applicator. The color is pretty; kind of a rose gold shade. I haven’t used it yet, but the swatch seems pretty pigmented.
The Ipsy bag this month is cute and functional. It seems sturdy- just simple black with a heart. It kind of looks like a pencil case.
I have to say this bag was not thrilling. I re-did the Ipsy quiz a few times now and I’m still feeling meh about the bags. Anyone else feel like Ipsy just isn’t what it used to be? I realize every month can’t be amazing, but I want to get use out of what I’m getting every month as well. Something to think about! 🙂
