My first Ipsy Bag

So I posted back at the beginning of January that I was going to try out Ipsy. I signed up and it finally came yesterday!!!!!!

Not familiar with Ipsy? It is a monthly subscription bag of beauty products based on a profile quiz!

Let me start with the fact that I am super impressed that you get full sized products!

I received
Be Matte Blush by City Color - which is VERY pink! I tried this and it's actually NOT that bad but you need to use a VERY light hand with it! There are other shades I much rather would have liked to get and would have worked better for my skin tone.

Plump Pout Mini by POP Beauty which is VERY pink! I tried this and, the texture and feel of the gloss was nice BUT the color was awful on me! Not sure who can wear this color but it certainly isn't me! Again I would have rather had the other shade.

Zoya nailpolish which I LOVE! I was just saying I wanted some more Zoya polish!!!

Fake Eyelashes with Glue -which I most likely won't use - the one time I tried fake eyelashes I ended up with my eye glued shut! - no joke!

Skyn Fresh Start Mask - I haven't tried this yet but it looks nice!
So overall I really like all the products except the fake eyelashes which are a great product - just not for me! The colors are just off for my skin tone. I looked at the profile and while there are several questions none of them are geared towards skin tone or warm/cool tone preference. It asks my hair color, skin tone, and eye color but even those suggest a warm toned person, and the colors I received are very cool.

I tried to change the settings a bit to see if I get warmer products next time!

Overall a good deal and fun!

  1. Hey Tess, what's Ipsy? You didn't really describe it. I'm glad you got full sized products. Let us know a little more about it. Thanks for sharing with Countdown in Style.

    1. Sorry! Ipsy is a monthly subscription where you get make up and beauty samples based on a profile quiz!

    This sounds so girly and like a fun experiment to try new stuff in the makeup arena. I would love to do something like this! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Countdown in Style! Don't forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured :)


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! It makes my day!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
