Hello Beauties! Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since subscribing to Ipsy. Next month will be my final un-bagging. I’ve really enjoyed receiving this hot pink bubbled package, but I will not be continuing anytime soon. Main reason being that I haven’t really used most of the samples that I received. My teenager self would’ve loved this subscription service and find all of the products awesome. Especially because for $10 a month you get a variety of products to try out. At this stage of my life I prefer to stay away from certain products that contain harmful ingredients. I am not 100% fully committed to all natural/organic products..not yet at least. However, the past few products I received contain more chemicals that link to cancer than beneficial ones and I feel uncomfortable using them. This is my brief unboxing for March 2016. Ipsy always sends a postcard encouraging you to head on over to their social media platform. They never send informational pamphlets which kind of gives you no choice but to check out their site so you can find out more about each item. Each month, a reusable bag comes filled with 4-5 samples. I like these bags and find them useful. This one has flowers/roses on the blue zippered bag.
These are the 5 products I received this month.
1. Bye Bye Under Eye by ItCosmetics in Neutral Medium, 0.11 fl.oz
2. Baked Bronzer by be a Bombshell in Heat Wave, 6.5g
3. Lip Lacquer by ModelCo in Socialite, 0.05 fl. oz
4. Intensive Blemish Serum by Evologie, 0.33 fl. oz
5. Eyeliner by Ofra, .04 oz
Overall Thoughts: I will not be using the lip lacquer, it has tiny specks of glitter. The eye concealer cakes up under my eyes and it doesn’t cover up blemishes. I will most likely not use the Bronzer because of all the weird chemicals in the product. The blemish serum did not work at all! The eyeliner is patchy. Can you tell, I am not too happy with this month’s samples? I did not enjoy last month’s either. I am planning to try out Birchbox instead. What are your thoughts on Ipsy or Birchbox, did anyone get the same products as me and loved them? Please share in the comments below, would love to hear what you think!
