Favorite Ipsy Items of 2014

ipsy

It was an interesting thing, trying to decide what my favorite Ipsy items were this year. Although there were things that stuck out to me, I decided to go through all of my blog posts and revisit what I received this year. In looking at the cost compared to my favorite products, it dawned on me that I am not really getting my money’s worth. Sure, there are fun things that I like here and there, and it’s fun getting the bag in the mail each month, but I don’t totally love what I am getting, and in the last four months there has been a serious decline. I even re-took the Ipsy quiz a few times and I’m still getting things that I have no interest in, like hairspray.

That said, a couple of my favorites are not in the photo because I used them up already. I also included a couple of my favorite bags! 🙂 Here are my favorites from the year:

Avene Thermal Spring Water (not pictured)– This was probably my favorite discovery through Ipsy this year. I love this and want to buy the full size.

Marc Anthony Beach Waves Spray– Mmmm…this smells so good and leaves my hair soft. There’s only a few uses left in this bottle.

Zoya nail polish in Dot– This white pink is right up my alley!

City Color blush in Fresh Melon– A close second to the thermal water, this vibrant coral is just lovely!

Crown Brush C476 Dual Sided brush– I really like this brush. The quality is great and it blends nicely.

Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty- Funnily enough, a Starlooks item also made it into my Ipsy favorites. This is just a nice medium pink gloss.

Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB Cream Eyeshadow in Barely Nude– This is a great lid primer. Full review here.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant (not pictured)– I reviewed this last December. It’s a great scrub, but I have since used up my little sample.

There are other Ipsy items that I like just fine, but I am just not head over heels in love with the majority of what I am getting each month, which is a disappointment. I have since cancelled my Ipsy subscription, at least for the time being. I’m sure this won’t be the last time I give this service a chance, but for now I need a break, because I’m not getting enough use out of it.

    You aren’t alone! I’ve been disappointed the last 3-4 bags as well and have also cancelled my subscription. I did start Birch Box and am also considering Boxycharms. I also agree with the majority of your favorites of the year!

  2. I have taken the quiz several times and haven’t been to happy with what they have selected for me. I started to get Beauty Box 5 but they are eh. The first box was good but then there has been a decline in product value. I have given up most of my other boxes though. I think Birch Box is terrible and Glossy Box a scam since they were putting discount cosmetics in the USA boxes. And I totally agree with the blush- one of the best products I got all year.
