I'm excited to show you TWO months of Ipsy bags! I love Ipsy. For $10 a month, you get to try all kinds of cool new stuff.
Let's start with March's bag. First off, the BAG. It's mega-cute, and designed by a new artist that they're giving some exposure to. Which, if I could have remembered to save the tag, I would share with you. Oops.
Probably my favorite item this month was the Marvelous Moxie deluxe lipstick in Get Ready. This is a perfect 'your lips but better' pinkish-nude shade. Great formula, too. I used the code to order something from their site and got a sample of the mascara and free shipping - and, because they said they were having some problems with their site, they gave me a code for some more freebies. It was awesome.
Here's all the swatches - Get Ready lippie across the top, the three eyeshadow shades from the NYX palette, and the Chella liner on the bottom.
But wait, there's more! I also have April's bag to show you. Another cute bag! Beauty Rocks!
When subscribers found out that the Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Black Velvet was included in this bag, it drove everyone into a tizzy - and rightly so. It's awesome. Nice, soft black, easy to apply and wear.
The Elizabeth Mott shadow is a nice color that everyone can use - and everyone probably has a bazillion pans of. It's a nice shimmery champagne color, great for highlights.
I have some Cailyn products, and I really like the packaging - the applicator brush is part of the top! So far, I've enjoyed my two gel eyeliners from Cailyn, and now I love this tinted lip balm in Apple Pink, too. Another great color. It's a balm, so it's not going to last for long - but it's so much fun to reapply.
Here's swatches of those three products - U/D Black Velvet, Elizabeth Mott Champagne, and Cailyn Apple Pink.
I haven't tried the Dr. Brandt exfoliator yet, but I've heard it's pretty awesome. I have been experimenting with a couple of different physical exfoliators lately, and I didn't want to overdo it with a chemical one, too.
I have a roll-on perfume in Sea Salt from Demeter, and I love it, so I was excited to get this one in Jasmine. It's a really strong, clear jasmine scent. Very pretty, but not very complex. I think this would appeal a lot to people who like to layer their scents to create something unique. If you like bath products with a jasmine scent, this would be great to apply after a bath to make it linger a little longer.
Have you checked out Ipsy yet? Personally, I don't think there's a better subscription for the money. If you're interested in subscribing and sending a few Ipsy points my way, click through my affiliate link HERE.
