Before I even knew it, or got my tracking code, my Ipsy bag was delivered! It's always super exciting to come home to that bright pink package in the post :) Unfortunately, I was not a fan at all of this Ipsy bag.
My first impression was obviously the bag - I thought it was cute, but not my style nor anything I'd ever use. Then I felt the fabric of it - it feels super cheap. Not impressed.
This months bag was called 'The Great Escape' - very nautical!
The contents of this months bag..
- GlamRX Mini Freestyle Palette - This is one of those things that is cute, but I'd never actually buy. Basically it's a palette with a magnetic bottom to attach whatever shadow pans you'd like, so long as they have magnetic bottoms. Definitely not something I'll be using. Mainly because nothing is ever going to fit perfectly in it, which will definitely make my OCD flare up!
- Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist - This for me was the star of the bag. This is the kind of stuff I love getting from Ipsy. I stick to a lot of the same makeup, so for me it's super cool trying more stuff like this. I'm not sure yet if this is something I'd repurchase but so far I'm really liking it! I find it really freshens up my face if I use it in the morning, or at night after washing my face.
- Yaby Eyeshadow Refill - The purpose of these shadows is to go into the GlamRX palette. However, I won't be using neither of them. I think Ipsy really needs to come up with some type of colour system, because no one is ever content with the colours they receive. The blue is something I will never wear, and the sand colour blends right into my skin! Probably something I'll end up giving to my little sister.
- LA Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover - I already have a makeup removal system and do not need to switch it up at all, so this is definitely something else I won't be using. Mind you, I'll keep them as they might be something I could use in the future. I found them to be very large, so when I used one I only used 1/4 of the wipe and ripped it into pieces. I've read lots of reviews from the other girls saying these stung their eyes, so I was very cautious.
The eyeshadows swatched
Overall, I'm not sure if this bag got my worth, but I'll definitely still stay subscribed. Really not impressed with this bag however. But what can you do! You have your ups and your downs with these things. Looking forward to the April bag already!
