This is my final Ipsy Glam Bag review. As mentioned in the last one, we are saving for a downpayment on a house, and I cancelled a bunch of subscriptions to save some cash—including Ipsy.
I’m not too heartbroken about it; I was collecting too many makeup bags, and the samples I was receiving as of late weren’t thrilling me.
So without further ado, here are the last samples I was sent.:
- Aurora Intensely Precise liquid eyeliner in “Cinnamon”—this stuff does NOT come off, which can either be good or bad. You decide. I’ve only worn this once, and it irritated my eyes a little. Plus, I don’t really wear brown liner ever.
- NYX purple prismatic eye shadow—This was a giant NOPE for me. The color isn’t flattering to my skin tone, and it was way too sparkly for my taste.
- Jersey Shore Cosmetics peppermint lip balm—This is an alright product. I do enjoy a good peppermint lip balm, but, man, I don’t need so many lip balms.
- Royal & Langnickel MODA angle shader brush—This was probably the best thing I received. I use this brush all the time for blending.
- Smashbox Insta-Matte lipstick transformer—I was really excited to receive this, but I’ve yet to try it. And it is now February. I’m sure it works great, but I already have a lot of matte lipsticks and haven’t found an occasion where I’ve felt like I needed it.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t even like the makeup bag for this month either. I can tell Ipsy was trying to channel the iconic pink envelope it sends its samples out in, but I don’t love it or the faux-fur fabric its crafted from. It looks tacky, in my opinion. This one is going to my Poshmark. Buh-bye.
What do you think of beauty subscriptions? Yay or nay?
