Try It Out Tuesday: Ipsy

I'm back at it with another Try It Out Tuesday. As you know, I'm a Sephora, Ulta and MAC junkie so it thrills me anytime I can get my hands on some make-up. Well, Ipsy sends a Glam Bag filled with about 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products for $10 a month.

While most subscription services send the same items to all subscribers, this one curates your specific bag out of the month's featured products. Receiving this made me feel extra special, while my preferences were taken into account while creating the bag. So let's get down to business!


getting started...

You fill out a survey, noting your skin type, what products you are looking for and brands you would like to try. Once everything is filled out you are then sent your Glam Bag. This seems to address areas of concern when it comes to receives products or samples that are too light for my skin. When looking for a make-up subscription to try out, I wanted an in-depth service that just didn't take my money, but took my needs and wants into consideration. After receiving your bag, you are prompted to review your bag before the end of the month so you will receive an even better bag next time around.

I love a good mask especially a mud mask so I'm ready to try out this clarifying mask. I never tried this brand before and am excited to see if it will become my new obsession.


Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator - Exfoliating Cleanser

It's going to take something really amazing to make me give up my cleanser (I'm brand loyal cough Philosophy). This exfoliating cleanser rejuvenates your face while also clearing the dullness and fine lines. Maybe I can skip, my facial cleanses at the spa using this baby. 


NYX Professional Makeup
Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in cocoa bean

Perfect buildable lip color, also pulling doubles as a cheek stain. The shade is a true nude on me and is a great addition to the many nudes I already have. I'm pretty sure I won't be wearing this on my cheeks as it just melts right into my skin.

Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner in jet black

Whoa! This is by far my favorite out of the bunch. This liner goes on smooth, but doesn't budge once dry. It's my new replacement for an everyday liquid liner.


Kokie Cosmetics
Nail Polish in Atlantis at last

This was one of the brands I never heard of and I am here for this bright cobalt blue shade. It promises no streaks or chips, let's see if it delivers. 


My thoughts...

Love. Who wouldn't love to try new beauty products and brands for only $10. Do you know much I normally spend on make-up?! This subscription is perfect for the money saver in me. It's a low-risk for such a high payoff when trying new products. you can't beat this deal and it really doesn't hurt to add this to your regular subscriptions. Well, can't wait to see what's in my next glam bag!

Tell me, what are your thoughts? What subscription should I try next?
