I am so sad to be writing this post. I decided I am going to stop my Ipsy subscription for now. I love Ipsy as a service, and they have great customer service representatives who are always more than willing to help fix any problems. As a whole, the business is an AMAZING one. However, I feel like after a year and 8 months (March 2016-November 2017), I’ve been receiving many of the same products, many products in similar colors they already sent me, products in colors I’ve specified in reviews I did not like, or repeats of products I already own. If you’ve noticed, I’ve stopped reviewing my glambags on here because I have not been very excited about the last few bags I received.
Furthermore, I feel like I have so many of their little bags that I am actually running out of room in my makeup drawer because of it! I love the little bags because some of them are SO CUTE and perfect to throw in a purse. But the bags are hit or miss. Many times, the designs are strange or not cute and I don’t really have a use for it after I’ve opened it to see all of my products for the month.
Nonetheless, Ipsy has introduced me to many new products I love, which led me to go out and buy full-size versions myself! I am very satisfied with my time as a customer, and like I said I will be back to Ipsy eventually! But for now, a break is much needed.
In the meantime, what are your favorite beauty subscriptions? Do you like Ipsy? Which other one’s should I try?
As promised, I am going to show you what I received in my September glambag from Ipsy! I am so happy with this month’s bag, and I appreciate the badass black bag design!
Included in this month’s bag were the following products:
- Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Angled Shading Brush 207
- Tarte Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
- Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey
- Elizabeth Mott Pop! Goes the Eyeshadow in Toasted
- NEOGEN Dermalogy Real Flower Cleansing Water – Rose
I have to say, the blush duo and the eyeshadow are very pigmented! I’ve tried both products on my face, and they lasted great through an 8 hour period. Here are swatches.
Top swatch is Toasted and the bottom swatch is Peach Honey
The mascara is AMAZING! I mean, I really wouldn’t expect anything less from Tarte. I have had great luck and experiences with the Tarte mascaras I’ve tried through Ipsy. The NEOGEN cleansing water is also an amazing product! It smells great (a natural floral scent just like roses), and it does a great job breaking through my makeup from the day! Finally, the Luxie brush is so nice and fluffy, and it is great for blending eyeshadows through the crease (I love my crease brushes!).
This bag was great and included a lot of functional products for me. I am SO excited for the October bag, since last year’s October design was the CUTEST ever!! ❤ The fall glambags are my favorite, and I can’t wait to see what’s next as the fall proceeds!
What did you get this month? Are we bag twins? What was your favorite product?
