Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get a makeup bag with your subscription and this month’s is really cute!
The bag features full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection on the cheap!
Ipsy sends out many different variations of their bag each month – so my review is just one of the bag variations you might receive!
Urban Decay Revolution High Color Lipgloss & Ozone 24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil, $17 – This Urban Decay long-lasting lip primer glides on smoothly to line and define the lips. I loved receiving this as I had never heard of it before. I wasn’t too excited about the size of the samples but will definitely be using the lip pencil. It’s nearly a full-size version too!
Luxie 205 Tapered Blending Brush, $12 – A great brush for blending eyeshadow. I loved getting a brush in this month’s ipsy bag because you can never have too many blending brushes! It’s so cute with its pink handle and the synthetic bristles are extremely soft too.
Bellapierre’s Gel Eyeliner, $14.99 – a “creamy, preservative-free eyeliner pencil” with “pure 100% minerals, natural waxes and anti oxidants.” It’s waterproof and designed to glide on smoothly. I wasn’t too excited about this because a black eyeliner comes in nearly every beauty bag so I’ve already got a drawer full of them.
Bare Republic Naturals, $14.99 – A lightly tinted 100% natural, chemical-free active SPF 30 face sunscreen. It is lightweight, non-whitening, non-greasy, and lightly tinted application is perfect to use with or without makeup. This product smells very strongly of sunscreen. I don’t mind the smell since it’s very nostalgic. After applying it, it was extremely greasy but once it dried, was a great primer for the rest of my makeup.
Pixi by Petra Beauty Bronzer, $18 – A deluxe bronzing powder that gives your complexion the warmth and luminosity of naturally sun-kissed skin. A really great bronzer for my paleness. Many bronzers are overwhelming against my light skin but this shade works perfectly. I apply it to the apples of my cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose for a nice bronzed effect.
