I received my first ipsy bag!
I’m not typically someone who indulges in subscription boxes or in this case bags but when I was offered a free one from one of my make-up-loving friends I couldn’t resist. I simply had to see what all the fuss was about and I must say I am more impressed than I thought I would be!
I’m happy with how cute the bag itself was, how well everything was packaged, and the simplicity of everything. I’m also glad I got to pick one of my items because that’s always nice and made it have a more personal feel for me. The only thing I wasn’t thrilled about was knowing everything that I was getting in the bag. I guess it’s nice if you want to know but it should be an option to reveal it or keep it a surprise. It also takes a while to arrive so I wasn’t necessarily expecting that but I guess it’s Okay when you get used to it.
(Does this mean Amazon has me spoiled with their two-day delivery?)
I also got a free trial of their refreshments subscription which was nice to be able to try and see what kind of products they offer however because I’m so particular about specific things like razors and aftercare I don’t think I will continue that portion of my ipsy subscription.
I will say personal preference aside that I think that’s a nice option to have since ipsy bags are delivered once a month depending on your subscription and you wouldn’t have to make any impromptu store runs for shaving supplies or really any of the other things that they offer through the refreshments tab in the app as it would be essentially sent straight to you with your bag. (*glam bag X happens quarterly and if you are a refreshments subscriber you will still receive your refreshments shipment with your glam bag X, even though during those months you will not receive a traditional bag.*)
About the bag: July
“Get whisked away to tranquil waters, sea breezes, and sandy toes. July’s beach-inspired bag invites you to soak in the beauty of the summer.”
Although each bag is different due to product availability and different responses to the Ipsy personal style quiz this is what I received in the July 2022 bag.
- ACE BEAUTÉ – Blushed Up Blush in Rosy
- BASIC BEAUTY- Lengthy Lashes
- PRESTIGE COSMETICS – Waterproof Automatic Eyeliner in Smoke
- SMASHBOX COSMETICS – Original Smooth & Blur Primer
(This is the item I chose)
- THE NUE CO. – Barrier Culture Cleanser
Overall it’s been a positive experience!
I’m pleasantly surprised & I would probably rate this whole thing ..maybe a seven out of ten? Sounds pretty solid to me. it’s not overwhelming but the process was easy, the products I received were quality and I like it overall.
I’ll be back when I get my August glam X order with updates.
