Pretty in #ipsypink

 

 

 

 

 

Ipsy is an online beauty subscription where you sample five different products (mascara, eyeshadows, etc.) mailed in a collectible bag. There’s a lovely theme each month and the products you receive are personalized according to your answers in a quiz, which is taken at the beginning of the subscription.

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!

I received my February Ipsy glam bag and the theme “Pretty in #IpsyPink” this month is my favorite by far. It’s completely inspired by the 80s romcom Pretty in Pink movie! (If you have the time, please watch the movie… It’s a classic.) The collectible glam bag for February has a textured design on front, which reminded my younger brother of Minecraft (thus making the bag cool to him lol), and a shiny hot pink backside. I love the look of the bag and have been using it ever since it arrived. The products mailed to me this time ranged from hair oil mist to nail polish, so a good mix and change from last months Ipsy bag.

The products I received February 2016:

  1. Vitamin B5 Weightless Oil Mist by OGX
  2. Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Wand by Josie Maran Cosmetics
  3. Sparkling Lip Gloss (Pink Sequin) by VINTAGE Jessica Liebeskind
  4. Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer (Neutral Medium) by IT Cosmetics
  5. Pink Gel Coat by Perfect Formula

Too Faced: SWEET on you set

Too Faced Cosmetics is a cruelty-free makeup brand with a mission to inspire “unapologetic glamour and femininity.” They produce quality beauty products with lovely packaging and encourage you to #ownyourpretty. After discovering their SWEET on you set, an online [holiday] exclusive, I placed an order immediately because it contained an eyeshadow palette of my choice AND many other goodies.

Sweet on you set

 

As you can see, the box my order was shipped in is glamorous. It’s pink and I love it. The products inside the pretty pink box arrived intact and to my surprise, included samples of Too Faced bronzers and BB cream as well (thank you TF!). The SWEET on you set was a perfect holiday exclusive for me because I was able to get Too Faced’s new eyeshadow palette and try their best-sellers (something I’ve wanted to do for sometime now). This SWEET on you set included

The Chocolate Bon Bons packaging is absolutely charming. The palette has a decent sized mirror on the inside and 16 unique (scented!) eyeshadows. Each eyeshadow is smooth, buttery, and has a great color-payoff. The collectable makeup bag I received in this set is the perfect size to hold the palette, mascara, and lipstick.

I tried the Better Than Sex mascara for the first time and I must say, I’m impressed. The mascara lengthened my lashes and held a defined curled that lasted all day. I’m excited to try their new waterproof formula coming out in March. As for the mini Melted lipstick I received, the color sadly wasn’t my favorite from the line and I wish I was given the option to choose a more neutral shade. Overall, the formula and pigmentation of the lipstick is stunning, but I still have to test whether or not it’s truly a “long-wear” lipstick.

January 2016 IPSYI’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for almost half a year now and so far I have no complaints. Sure I prefer certain bags and products over others, but overall the beauty subscription is a fun treat I look forward to every month. It’s a new year and the theme Ipsy created for the month of January is “All Eyes on You“. The bag’s design had the same graphic repeating on the front but varied in color.
