I hope this post doesn't turn into a rant, but I didn't show my last months ipsy bag because it was disappointing and wasn't worth showing. It's the same case for this month but I'm going to show it anyways. I had months of crappy bags and then I had a few good ones so I was having hope that ipsy was stepping up their game. Now I'm back to being disappointed. Well, as disappointed that I can be paying only $10 a month :p
This months theme was Swim Into Beauty with a waterproof makeup bag.
These masks were the only thing I was kind of excited about, but only because I got three of them. They are from Bio Repulic and they are fiber masks. One is detoxing, one revitalizing, and one is soothing. I haven't tried anything like these before so I may do a review on them.
Next up is the Smashbox Photo Ready Primer. Now I think most would be excited about this but I am not because I already know this doesn't agree with my skin and breaks my face out.
I don't get excited about body butters or lotions in my bags. I have tons of lotions that I already use and my skin is sensitive so this is a big dud for me. It's by the brand Lavanilla which I have always wanted to try so I thought maybe it will be okay. No. This smells like straight up perfume and not a pretty soothing vanilla hand lotion like I was expecting.
Next up is a shadow stick by trèStique. I normally like stuff like this but I don't care for the color. I usually only like to use cream shadows on my lids and this is definitely not a lid color. I will give props for the cute packaging that looks like a crayon though!
Next is this god awful magenta lip crayon. I just cannot wear lip colors like these. They look great on a lot of people but I can't do it. Ipsy is famous for sending me the worst lip colors, I swear every month I get them.
So this bag gets a big thumbs down for me. I've considered unsubscribing but I wish there was another subscription box that was good that didn't cost an arm and a leg LOL. I'm too cheap to pay over $10 and all the ones I want are over $20 haha!
What did you get in your ipsy bag this month?
