The December 2014 ipsy bag is here! ipsy is another one of the subscriptions that I have had since I discovered subscription boxes. I actually originally signed up for it because Birchbox had a waiting list (it seriously used to take weeks to get off of it) and ipsy didn’t (back then anyway).
If you aren’t familiar, ipsy is $10/month and sends its members a beautiful Glam Bag with 4-6 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Their bags always have an incredible value (well over the $10 cost) and I am always amazed at how they do it.
ipsy ships via DHL Global Mail (starts out with DHL and is delivered by USPS) and I think it took about five or six days to arrive.
ipsy doesn’t include an information card listing the specific products you can find in your bag, but they are all listed in your account online. “Glam Rooms” open on the 10th of the month (and even earlier for sneak peeks), so if you want to know what you are getting before your box arrives, you can find out!
The December 2014 ipsy theme was “Thinking of You” and included the following items:
~Beauty Without Cruelty A.H.A. 3% Facial Cleanser ($2.60): I love getting cleansers in subscription boxes. I think they serve as a reminder that I need to wash my face more! I used this last night and thought it did it’s job well.
~NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm ($4): This lip balm isn’t over the top amazing or anything, but it does the trick. I liked that it had a bit of color in it too. I swear I have gotten this before, but I can’t recall what box it came in?
~Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust ($10): I had no idea what this was. Just from the looks of it, I would have guessed a cream eyeshadow. Turns out it’s a shimmery powdery pigment that can be used to highlight eyes and / or cheeks.
~Swissco Electroplated Eyelash Curler ($5): I have an eyelash curler I am happy with, so I will pass this on to a friend. Do eyelash curlers ever need replacing? They don’t right? Or do they?
~tarte Deluxe lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara ($8.33): Love seeing tarte products in here! I like this mascara and will throw it in my travel makeup case. I think I prefer the smaller size mascaras to the larger ones. I get to try all the mascara I get more frequently with this!
~The Bag: This month’s bag is more like a pencil case than a makeup bag, but I love it. And I think the little heart charm on it is really cute too.
All totaled I came up with a value of $29.93 for my December 2014 ipsy bag. It wasn’t my favorite ipsy bag ever or even my favorite in the last few months, but it was worth the $10 I paid for it! It always is!
