ipsy is a monthly subscription of beauty and skincare items for $10.00 a month. Your selections are loosely based on the profile you fill out at signup, and on answering the survey questions monthly on the products you receive. What I really like about ipsy is that each month you receive a cute new bag, instead of the typical box as with other subscriptions.
Here’s What Was Included in the March Bag
Luxie Rose Gold Shader Brush 223
This shader brush is fully vegan and cruelty-free. I love receiving makeup brushes, and this one works great for precision color. It also features an antibacterial coating to help maintain quality and cleanliness.
Make Up For Ever Hydrating Primer
This hydrating primer helped balance my skin texture and made my makeup last longer. I love that it is hydrating, while not being greasy, and really helped my makeup go on smoothly and stay put!
Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil Mystic
This is a lip liner, lip color and cheek color all in one. I love multipurpose products, and this is a beautiful neutral shade. It has a semi-matte finish but still has a creamy base, so it wasn’t drying at all.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum
I’m a huge fan of most First Aid Beauty products. They are usually safe for even the most sensitive skin. This serum is a lightweight gel formula and absorbs easily. It also contains antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal and allantoin to combat redness.
Smash Box Primer Water
The SmashBox Primer water I purchased using my ipsy points. In case you’re unfamiliar, ipsy gives you points on their website for reviewing the products you received, sharing on social media, and referring a friend. The points can then be used to purchase items in the ipsy shop. This primer water is lightweight and free of silicone, alcohol, and oil. I found it to be refreshing and worked great at keeping my makeup on.
mybody Glowbiotics Resurfacing Pads
This is another item I purchased using ipsy points. These pads are supposed to mimic the feel of a chemical peel without irritation or peeling. However, they caused major irritation to my skin after just 1 use. I have fairly sensitive skin, so honestly, its kind of my own fault for using a product that “mimics a chemical peel”. This product has gotten great reviews from what I’ve read, but in my opinion, I would not recommend it for someone who has even the least bit sensitive skin. My face was immediately red and irritated, even after re-cleansing, my face was red and irritated for a good 4-5 hours after.
Overall, I feel this was a great month from ipsy, and I loved being able to use my points to try out even more products. Even with the disappointment of the resurfacing pads, I really wasn’t out anything extra, so I’m glad I got to try them that way first before shelling out the money for them.
