Favourite Thing- Ipsy

Happy Friday! This has been a super busy week for me and I'm excited that it's almost over. My weekend plans are up in the air but I am looking forward to sleeping in.

Despite everything that happened this week, I had something pretty good happen (ok, I had a lot of good things, but for the sake of this post...). My September Ipsy bag was delivered!! I've been subscribing to Ipsy since it was introduced to Canada in January. I have loved every single bag they have sent me!

If you don't know, Ipsy is a monthly subscription beauty bag, for $15 a month ($10 plus $5 shipping,,,if you're in the US it's $10, no shipping fee), you get a makeup bag filled with 5 samples. Here is September's bag:

  • Make up bag
  • Elizabeth Mott It's So Big Volumizing Mascara
  • NYX Single Eye Shadow- Hot Crystal
  • Cailyn Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm- Big Apple
  • Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil
  • Freeman Beauty Facial Paper Mask- Purifying (Star Fruit), Brightening (Rose), Hydrating (Blue Agave)
So much great stuff! While I don't love everything (mascara is a popular item in beauty bags and I don't wear mascara) every month, I love the majority of the bag. I have been introduced to soooo many great products and brands because of Ipsy. The products that they send is well worth the price each month and there is always at least one full size sample in each bag. I also love the variety of products that they send- make up, skin care, hair products...little bit of everything. 

When you join Ipsy, you take a beauty quiz and your answers help determine what products you will get in your Ipsy bag. What I really like, is that you can go back and re-take the quiz as many times as you like. This is great, because if your style or life changes, your not stuck with your original answers.

I high recommend Ipsy. I know that a lot of bloggers subscribe to Ipsy and I have yet to come across a blogger who doesn't love Ipsy!

  1. I love getting things in the mail but I'm just not a big beauty person. I wish they made a candy one :)
