For some reason, I signed up for MyGlam (they just changed their name to ipsy). Maybe it was back when I was still waiting to be “accepted” on Birchbox? I have no idea. Anyways, with ipsy, you receive 4-5 beauty products in a collectible bag. It’s $10/month and shipping is free.
September was my first ipsy bag and here is what I received (all in a cute little black bag):
~SOHO Smudge Brush: I’ve always wanted to perfect the smokey eye, but never really put much effort into it. Maybe I will now that I have this brush? Probably not, but at least I don’t have any excuses anymore.
~Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Split End Sealer: I cannot wait to try this. My hair (*) (what’s left of it anyways) is a hot mess so anything to make it look better is a winner in my book. I am super super excited by this.
~Jane Sparkle Gloss: Lip gloss? What’s not to like about this? No matter how many glosses or lip balms I have, it’s not enough. I have one in every single room in my house. This one will get thrown in my bag in case I want a little color.
~Mirabella Eye Colour (Semiformal): Since I rarely wear make-up this won’t get used much. Who am I kidding about the smokey eye? LOL. But on the rare occasion that I do slap some on, I will give this a try. I am not going to judge the quality of this or anything since I have NO CLUE about that.
~Circus by Andrea’s Choice Nail Color (Tightrope): Love this color! I kind of wish I had signed up sooner so I would have gotten all the colors (orange and yellow) in the collection as well. This is more of a summer color, but I plan to wear it soon anyways and pretend I’m at the beach ;). And seriously, could this packaging be any cuter?
While I like ipsy, I don’t need it. Not in the way I need all my other bags / boxes anyways. But still I will give it another month or two just to verify that it is totally unnecessary. Then again, it’s only $10/month, so maybe I do need it. I mean, the bag and its contents worth were totally worth $10. Oh, also they have videos on their site that show stylists using the same products you get in your bag. I will never watch them, but I do like the idea.
Want to subscribe? Click here and get on their waiting list! I looked and it took about 3 weeks from when I got on the waiting list until when I got invited to join. Do you get ipsy? What do you think? And what in the world do you do with all the bags you get every month?
(*) I dyed it today so at least I am not balding and grey.
