My final Ipsy bag of the year arrived early this month - yay!! The past couple of months it's been coming the twenty-somethingth of the month so it was a nice surprise to receive it so early this time especially since I'll be leaving soon to visit home for the holidays and wouldn't want it sitting in my mailbox for 2 weeks.
If you are unfamiliar with Ipsy, it is a $10 beauty subscription service where you receive 4-6 deluxe sample and full-sized products inside a cute makeup bag each month. To learn more about Ipsy and/or sign up for your own bag, click HERE.
This month's bag isn't as creative as some of the recent past bags have been. It reminds me more of a pencil bag or a much earlier Ipsy bag I received. I do still think it's cute with its little heart charm and like the simplicity of it and will definitely use it! The front of the card inside said "You are a: Talented Being" which I thought was cute. Apparently, people received different sayings on theirs.
INSIDE THE BAG
Boost Repair Treatment by Cool Way
This hair serum is for repairing damaged hair. It's made of a non-toxic formula that contains no formaldehyde, sulfates, parabens, phthalates or synthetic color. Never heard of the brand before. It has a nice almost peppermint-like scent.
Butter Lip Balm by NYX in "Lady Fingers"
Yes! Love seeing full-sized products in my bag! Even more so when they have the word "butter" in them. This lip balm is very moisturizing and has a pleasant scent. It's sheer but has a nice hint of mauve color. Very pretty.
Fairy Dust by Pixi
Wasn't sure what this was at first, but it looks like it's a shimmery powdery pigment that you can use on your eyes/cheeks/wherever can use a little brightening/shimmer. I like the sponge tip that makes for easy application although it can still get a little messy.
lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara by tarte
Very excited to see this in my bag as I've heard SO many great things about this mascara! The 4-in-1 comes from the fact that it claims to lengthen, curl, volumize, and condition your lashes. I currently have far too many mascara so I've held off on buying any new ones, but this and the Manga mascara have been at the top of my "to try/buy" list - hoping it lives up to my expectations!
Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush by Crown Brush
I can never have too many brushes! This is a dual sided brush made of synthetic fibers. One side is perfect for applying eyeshadow and the other for defining the eye. Nice, soft bristles. While I've heard of Crown Brush before, I've never actually used them.
Another great bag well worth it's price! I love the variety of products - they covered makeup (high end and drugstore, deluxe sample and full-sized), hair, and beauty tools!
