Hey everyone! Today's post will be about what I received in my Ipsy Bag for January. So sorry this post is so late too. Better late than never though, right? I gotta admit, before I got it in the mail, I read that other people were getting their bags but the nail polish broke or the body butter split, so the products basically ruined the bag. I was so nervous my bag was going to be destroyed or I was going to get the colors I didn't want, but now that I have my bag, I'm happier than I thought I'd be, but not overjoyed.
I am in love with how the actual bag looks. I know it looks a little funny in the picture but it's this pretty slate gray with a bit of a blue tinge to it. Inside, the bag is a dark blue color with white dots and stars. It's super cute and to me, this is a perfect bag to carry makeup in.
Onto the products. First up is the Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter. I'm actually pretty excited to use this. My skin is so dry lately and I'm desperately trying to find something moisturizing enough. Plus I love the smell of anything orange, so to me, this smells amazing!
Next, I got the Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hair Spray. I gotta be honest, I hate hair sprays or gels of any kind, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this. Seriously, I was never a fan of putting anything in my hair aside from leave-in conditioner, so this stuff doesn't really appeal to me.
Next, I got the Nailtini Nail Lacquer in the color Frappe. Ipsy subscribers got either this color or Bloody Mary, which to me looked like a bright red. I have some reds in my nail polish collection, so I was really hoping for this Frappe color and I'm glad I got it.
Then I got the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil. I've never used this before and I actually do have another little jar of this, but I've heard so many good things so I may try this on my face to help hydrate my skin a little more.
Lastly, I got the Soho Crease Brush. Again, subscribers either got this, a concealer brush, or eyeliner brush. I'm happy I got the crease brush, because I don't use concealer brushes and I have enough eyeliner brushes.
Overall, I'm fairly happy with what I received. For a $10 a month beauty subscription bag, it's not terrible, but I wish they had a bag with some more skincare items. I can't remember which bag it was, but I think I got it in the summer, there were like three skincare items in the bag, which I really loved. Don't get me wrong, I love makeup, but I think Ipsy needs to change it up a bit. And enough with the nail polish already! Sheesh! I'm thinking about giving Ipsy one more shot, and if I'm not happy with my next bag, I might cancel and try another beauty subscription service that's not terribly expensive.
Does anyone subscribe to Ipsy? Did you like the products you received?
