Just recently I decided to try one of those box of stuff delivered to your door things. I figured it would be a fun little mommy treat and who doesn't love getting mail?
I know there are a lot of options out there but I chose Ipsy for two reasons:
1. It's only $10 a month.
2. They emailed me.
I am NO make up expert but I do like wearing and playing with makeup. Ulta and Sephora see me once a year for makeup products, maybe. The only make up products I use are the ones recommended by friends, samples I randomly get, or the ones I stole from my big sis [who is a make up master]. So Ipsy and I seemed like a good fit.
I'm a goof but I was so excited to take my little beauty test and get my first bag! I don't love the bag but I figured it would be cute to use as a gift card holder for the future. Here's what came inside:
Hey Honey [LOVE]
I hate falling in love with things that are out of my budget but this moisturizer is amazing! I have generally dry skin and this does the trick. Makes my skin feeling softer than a baby's bum, it doesn't have a weird smell, and it's for day and night. It's $38 bucks and yes I plan on buying it.
Colour Pop Gel Eyeliner [LIKE]
It's a good eyeliner. It lasts a long time and only smudged a little under my eye. There isn't anything special about it but I would buy it again if I needed eyeliner
Urban Decay Eye Shadow [LOVE]
I love Urban Decay shadows but this isn't a color I would normally pick for myself. I did fall in love with it though. The two tone shimmer was really fun. You can use it on the crease or on the lid of your eye.
I like the color and the shimmer. Mostly liked it because I needed a new blush.
I have to tell ya I really had fun with my first bag. In fact, I've worn make up almost every day! That's a stretch for this mama who is usually a chap stick and pony tail kinda girl. It was fun trying the new products and learning more about how to apply makeup. I'm already looking forward to July's bag.
If you want to give it a try you can check out Ipsy HERE. A special treat for $10 a month is great for a mom on a budget.
