For those who do not know, Ipsy is a monthly subscription service created by Michelle Phan. In Canada after shipping and the exchange rate is factored in costs around $17 a month, which some months is way worth it. The Glam Bag (what they are called) is a compact makeup bag filled with approximately 5 goodies. Each month follows a different theme, and the bags are always different. I've been subscribed for 13 months, and I love everything I have gotten from the bags. When you join, or sign up you fill out a questionnaire, asking about your favourite products, what you prefer, the skin type you have, if you like bolder or more neutral tones etc. This allows them to totally customize your bag, my best friend is also subscribed, and a few of our products are the same, but we have not gotten identical bags yet.
The bag itself: This months theme was "Fresh Picks" and it had a number of featured brands who send samples for the bags. The bag is super cute, and it is a little more flexible than some of the past bags I have gotten, which is great for filling it with your favourite goodies for purses and backpacks (and wherever else you can think of using them).
Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water It is branded for sensitive skin, and I know that it works. I'm really happy for a sample size that I can throw in my bag.
Hang Ten Classic Sport Natural Sunscreen UVA/UVB Protection SPF 50 I'm excited to use this product on my face as a sunscreen under my BB cream in the summer. It smells really good, and I am excited to have this in my bag ready to go in the summer!
Eva-Nye Therapy Session Hair Mask I have dry curly hair, enough said. This also smells really yummy and summery and yeah I'm excited to try it.
Pacifica Natural Beauty Eyeshadow Duo #1 Perfect golds for the summer, they are really light, so they are buildable, which for summer is great for a light wash of colour.
Too Faced Choclate Soleil Medium/Deep Bronzer I HAVE WANTED TO GET MY HANDS ON THIS FOREVER. I'm really glad it's a sample size so I can actually test it before I legitimately buy it- but I wanna for the smell alone, I didn't truly believe when everyone was hyping about how awesome it smells, but send me to chocolate heaven I love it. (I may have smelled it, and then made everyone in the house smell it too....)
I'm thinking of every month posting what's in my bag when I get it, and then reviewing each product as bonus posts throughout the following month.. Let me know in the comments if you think this is a good idea?
