I’ve been a subscriber to Ipsy since January, and I’ve got to say this is the best Glambag yet! If you aren’t familiar with Ipsy, it’s a monthly subscription of 4-5 deluxe and full size beauty products that costs $10 per month (shipping is free). Your samples will also come in an Ipsy-designed cosmetics bag! If you’re interested in subscribing, please use my referral link HERE.
This month’s bag featured the theme “Spring Fling” – and what a fling it is! If you’re into spoilers, Ipsy does a nice job of posting sneak peeks of the products on their Facebook page. I always try not to look, but my curiosity gets the best of me and I always have a pretty good idea of what’s coming in my bag.
Each month there are a few either/or samples. Based on your beauty profile, the experts at Ipsy will select products they think you will love. This month, however, there were a number of either/or samples. I’ll showcase what came in my bag of course, but I’ll also give you a listing of what was in some of my fellow Ipsters’ bags too. Enough chatter, let’s get to the goods! Here’s a pic of my samples:
1. Juice Beauty Reflecting Lip Gloss (Color: Fig)
I’m thrilled with this one! This is a full size Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in the color Fig. Juice Beauty uses the safest, local, organic and natural ingredients possible. This lip gloss smells like a fruit salad, is just shimmery enough, and has nice staying power. The color is a lovely raspberry shade, or well, Fig shade…but I think raspberry is a better color description. Other Ipsy subscribers received Mirabella lipstick in a variety of colors, lip liner, or perfecting powder also by Mirabella.
2. St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion
I’m a total sucker for self-tanner, so this is perfect for me. I like a little extra color on my pasty white skin in the summer time…sometimes this stuff can be a little precarious to apply, so practice definitely makes perfect. Other subscribers received either a roll-on perfume or a bronzing body butter, both by Pacifica, instead of the St. Tropez.
3. Yaby Concealer Refill (Buff)
This is probably the one thing that I’m least fond of, not that it’s not a great product, but I have a concealer that I like and don’t plan on deviating from. This Yaby concealer now lives in my little magnetic Glam RX Palette that came in the March Glambag.
4. Zoya Nail Polish (Neely – mint green)
Every subscriber received a full-sized Zoya nail polish, I got the lovely mint green shade called Neely. I’m a big fan of Zoya and I’m happy with the color, which was from their Spring 2013 Lovely Zoya Collection.
Hair oils and serums are pretty popular right now. I’ve tried a number of them, and I’m definitely a fan! This is a nice sized sample, and I thought it worked really well on my long, straight hair. Other subscribers received Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment.
I’d say Ipsy hit a homerun with their May Glambags, and they did a superb job matching me with the available samples…and getting full sized products is always a huge bonus! I’m interested to know if you’re an Ipsy subscriber, and what you thought of your May Glambag. And if you aren’t a subscriber…what are you waiting for? Join in the FUN!
