Ipsy May 2014

Hello everyone! So this is my first Ipsy bag! I know some people really like subsription boxes, and some people really don't. This box is only $10 a month so I didn't think that seem like a big deal if I got a bad box here and there. I just wanted to try it out and if I didn't like it, I could always cancel it.

Usually, ipsy gives out 5 products a month, some of them full size but most of them are deluxe samples size. There's different variations depending on what your tastes are and your skin tone and whatnot. So here's what I got!

So the most interesting product I got was the Avène Thermal Spring Water. It's a multi-use spray that you can use of chapped skin, sunburns, sensitive and inflamed skin. There was a sheet with all of the many uses on it so it's not just limited to these. When I tried it on my arm, it was very cooling so I think it will be great on really hot, humid days. It's not warm yet because it's been a very cold year where I live but it's always super humid so I will be saving it for those times. Another product is the Sans Tan Ant-aging Sunscreen it's pretty pretty basic but I don't have an SPF, I usually just wear a foundation with it built in, but this is really nice to have just in case. The Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo was kind of a dud, the pigmentation is not very good and the texture is kind of chalky. I give it a thumbs down. I already tried the Eva-NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask and it made my hair super soft. If I can find it and it's not too expensive, I'll think about getting it. As for the last product, a teeny tiny sample of the Calvin Klein Endless Euphoria perfume. I was actually going to buy a new rollerball perfume this weekend for my purse. But now I don't have to! It's only a 0.1 ounce but I get bored of scents really easily. This is a very light, fresh scent that I really like so that is a plus. 

That's all I got! For my first ipsy bag, I'm not disappointed. The eyeshadow wasn't very good but it is full sized and I'm happy with all of my other samples. 

What do you guys think of subscription boxes? Have you gotten ipsy boxes? If so, what do you think of them?


  1. The bag is super adorable!
    I subscribed to Fancy once, but only because there was a really good deal for the first month, then canceled it afterwards, haha. The box was pretty rad, but regular price was too expensive for me.
    The Ipsy boxes seem to be really popular though, so I'm tempted to subscribe, even if it's just for a month or two.

    1. I've never heard of the Fancy box! And the only reason why I started with ipsy is because it's only $10 a month, so it's not going to break the bank. ;D
