This is now the fourth month I’ve received the Ipsy monthly subscription bag and I am still so happy I cancelled Birchbox and gave Ipsy another try. This month was another good month that came in a uniquely shaped plastic neon pink bag.
I know a lot of people absolutely hated the bag but I think it’s cute. I think that people forget that each month only costs $10 and that includes the shipping. You’re not going to get a high fashion, high quality bag plus goodies for that price point.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m aware that $10 is a lot of money to some people. But you have to keep that in mind. I give them huge props for trying hard to give us unique themed reusable makeup bags each month instead of just shipping the samples in only their pink bubble mailers or another disposable box like Birchbox does.
Here’s what I got:
Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray (1.4 oz)
Coola Mineral Sunscreen Facial Moisturizer (0.23 oz)
BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Trio
Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Coral Crush (full size)
Nailtini Mai Tai Nail Polish (full size)
Bonus: Nicole by OPI Pretty In Plum Nail Polish (full size)
I’ll admit that not every product in this month’s bag was a solid winner but overall it was well worth the subscription fee. The hair spray and the sunscreen I feel “meh” about and probably won’t use them much if at all.
I wish they had paired 3 different eyeshadow colors together that you could actually use to complete a whole look with. These ones don’t really go together but can be easily worn with others aready in my collection.
Surprisingly these eyeshadows are not as pigmented and as bold as they look in the packaging. I thought they would be much more impressive than they are. They can be built up to be more pigmented though, as seen in my swatch here.
The Pop Beauty crayon is my favorite of the bag. It is soft and creamy and really pigmented. It gives my lips a lot of pretty coral pink color while keeping them soft and smooth.
The Mai Tai Nailtini nail polish is a really nice color that I will get lots of use out of. It’s a coral cream color more on the orange side. A really fun shade for summer!
The bonus item this month for referring new subscribers was another nail polish! I received a Nicole by OPI color from the Selena Gomez collection. Pretty In Plum is a shimmery purple shade. A special thanks to anyone who subscribed to Ipsy via my referral link!
I would have to say that this is the least favorite bag out of all of the months I have been getting it so far. However I’m still very happy with the service. Are you an Ipsy subscriber yet?
If not, what are you waiting for! If you’re not already a member of the Ipsy monthly subscription service, you can sign up here. The subscription cost is $10 a month but you always have the option to cancel at any time. (Disclosure: this is a referral link that provides me with Ipsy credit when you join.
