If you are anything like me, your makeup routine consists of a quick drag of eyeshadow across your lids, a dash of eyeliner, and on good days a brush of mascara. I just don’t have the time to elaborately paint my face every morning. I’m more the mom rushing around in yoga pants and a ponytail. I have been wearing the same brand and color of those three beauty items since college. That being said, I do occasionally like to venture outside my comfort zone and try out new products or even *gasp* do my makeup for date night.
Perusing the beauty aisle at any local drug store can be daunting to people like me (don’t even get me started on the make up counters at the mall- forget about it). One of my coworkers at work was ranting about Ipsy one day so I decided to give it a try.
What is Ipsy?
Ipsy is a monthly glam bag subscription that sends you 5 personalized beauty products each month inside of a cute makeup bag. When creating your Ipsy account, you are prompted to answer numerous questions about hair type, style, make up preferences, skin type/tone, etc in order for the glam team to pick products which best suite your preferences as well as colors that go well with your skin tone and type.
Ipsy costs $10 a month and is set up as an automatic payment from a debit/credit card when you sign up.
Show me your Glam Bag!
I’ve gotten some really great products in my glam bag- most I would never have known about being that I don’t venture too far outside my comfort zone with makeup. The bag definitely pays for itself as the products are all high end and while most are sample size, I usually get one to two full size products per month. Check out a few pics of my glam bag goodies!
I definitely recommend this service for all you ladies out there! I signed up with Mia and another good friend so we swap and trade if we get something we don’t necessarily like or need and for $10 bucks a month it’s a totally affordable treat each month!
