I know this is very late BUT…. it’s just something I just had to share. Last month I received my very first Ipsy glam bag and I was so excited that I just couldn’t wait to see what came. For those of you who haven’t been introduced to the company, Ipsy is a beauty subscription company and for a small fee of $10 US plus free shipping/ month, you get 5 beauty based items that is recommended just for you based on your beauty profile. I find that this is a great way for the eager and earnest beauty enthusiast on a budget to keep up with new trends and new products without breaking the bank.
The theme for the January Ipsy bag was ‘All Eyes On You’ so many of the products I received were focused on enhancing the eyes. Can’t wait to see what I got? Well let’s get to it then!!!
The name glam bag is certainly no accident because every month the beauty products you receive come in a cute themed makeup bag that is just ah-may-zing. It’s functional but still very stylish and cute which is always a bonus.
So let’s get this show on the road and let me introduce you to some great products that were sent to me by Ipsy. Just a note: All the product descriptions are from the ipsy site to give you a small peek into what the products are all about.
