I’ve seen so many people trying out Ipsy and Birchbox, that I finally decided to take the plunge and join for awhile to see if I liked it. I thought it would be a fun monthly blog post to share what I got, and what I liked out of it!
If you don’t know what Ipsy is, it’s a monthly subscription you sign up for $10.00 a month (includes shipping prices), and they send you out a new bag each month with sample size or full size products! When you join you enter information on your coloring, preferences as to what you use the most, and what kind of products you lean towards (I put natural).
Here is what I got for August.
Out of all the products I was the most excited about the Lip conditioner (it’s organic and feels so silky smooth!), and the eye shadow. I was totally out of my L’BRI eye shadow in this lighter color, and I love the light shimmer that is included in this eye shadow.
I’m going to try the dry shampoo, as some days I go longer then I want without a shower because I’m so tired. Perfect timing on that one.
The Sheer Glo lotion is intriguing. You mix it with your foundation, or just apply it on your face after you put your foundation on. I did it today (very quickly) and didn’t notice a huge difference but I’m going to try it gain.
The Urban Decay eye pencil went in the trash. I’m not big on eye pencils and this one was purple. I knew I wouldn’t use it.
I’m going to try Ipsy for a few months, and then maybe try Birchbox to compare and see if I want to stick with either one. It is really fun to get some new products in to try for a month! I’ve read that Birchbox leans towards the skincare/ body care side of products, and Ipsy is more about makeup. They are both $10.00 a month, so price doesn’t make a decision on which company to stick with.
Have you ever tried either company?
