I mentioned last month that I was giving Ipsy a big thumbs down for the bag I recieve. I'm going to have to say that the past few months (maybe since sping time) my Ipsy bags have been less than exciting and just meh, maybe with a few exceptions.
Let's see what I got this month and how I feel about it!
This is a Acacia Protein BB Cream for our hair by Ecru New York. A BB cream for your hair? What?? This is a leave in treatment that you use before you style your hair. Meh.
This is a face scrub/exfoliant by Epice. I honesty wish Ipsy would stop sending me hair mask and face cleansers. I never (ok very rarely) use them. I will probably try this one out, use it the one time, and never use it again. Again, meh.
This is a hand cream by Fig and Rouge. Ok another thing I wish they would stop sending me is hand creams, but, this one has such cute packaging that it is forgiven. I mean come on, who wouldn't want this LOL. Not to mention is smells like mangos.
This is a baked eye shadow by Jesse's Girl. You all know I love my Jesse's girl palette that I have, so I would have been excited about this but I don't wear silver/gray eyeshadows so this was not so exciting for me.
Last we have a lipgloss by Starlooks. This was the one thing that I was excited about. I do like Starlooks and it's actually a nice color. Props to Ipsy for finally sending me a lip shade that wasn't red or orange, it only took 2 1/2 years!! Anyways, this is a nice color, it's pigmented, and not sticky.
The final verdict
-This bag was just okay for me. I've definitely had worse.
-I'm excited about the lipgloss and the hand cream. I will try the face scrub and maybe the hair stuff.
-I really feel like I'm being kind of harsh and critical, and I know I can't expect a lot or like everything I get (not to mention its only $10 a month) but when you get crappy bags month after month, who wouldn't be annoyed?
-I do really like this company, so I don't want to cancle my subscription, but come on Ipsy! Step up your game! When I first signed up the bags were so great!
What did you get in your Ipsy bag this month?
And also, has anyone ever tried out Beauty Box 5??
