When I got home on Friday, my first Ipsy Glam Bag was in the mail! I was very excited. It was a nice way to end a rather stressful week.
Ipsy is fairly similar to Birchbox, but there are definitely differences. It's a monthly subscription service that runs $10/month. They promise to ship by mid-month, so I got my bag right on time.
Ipsy promises 4-5 items, plus a make-up bag every month. If I stick with this one long enough, I'll have a ridiculous assortment of bags. I think they'll be fun to have though. I liked this month's bag, it's fun and brightly colored.
I'll start with the item I was the least excited about, the Pixi Primer. I've been using BB Cream as a Primer, which I like because it has SPF (important down here in the Sunshine State!) and my foundation does not. This primer does not have any SPF, so I can't see me using it on a regular basis since I don't think I'd use a primer and then BB Cream. Still, it's a pretty nice size sample.
Next up is the nail polish. It was a full-size bottle! It's Nicole by OPI, Roughles in "On What Ground?" I really like the color, but it's a textured polish. I'm not sure how I'll like the texture, but it'll be fun to try! I'm planning on doing my nails tonight so I can try it out.
The lipstick I received is by bareMinerals, Marvelous Moxie in Get Ready. It's a really pretty rosy hue. I like the formula a lot. I'm a lipstick fan over gloss, so I'm glad I got the lipstick variety of this one!
So there's my Ipsy bag for the month! Absolutely love it!
