For those of you who do not know what Ipsy is, it’s a monthly beauty subscription service that is about $10/month. Each month, you will receive 4-5 full size or deluxe samples inside a cute makeup bag. If you want to check it out, or subscribe, I have a link to Ipsy below this post.
Let’s get this blog started!
October’s theme was Alter Ego.
Two sides of the same bag! ❤
FIRST is IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Proven 5-in-1 Mascara (say that 10 times fast!). It has a really interesting bulb like tip on the end, but I really like how …dramatic?… it makes my eyelashes look! 5/5!!! Full size is 0.33oz for $24, making this 0.16oz sample worth about $11.64! WHAT!? *sigh* Why is make up so expensive…? Anyways, you can get 20% off any purchase over $25 & free standard shipping using the code: ITLOVESIPSY HERE.
SECOND is the Coastal Scents Xpress Line Cosmetic Pencil. This is an eyeliner pencil in black. It is creamy and sharpens well – makes me happy! 5/5! Good news, you can get 5 pencils for $2.95! So that means this 1 pencil is worth $0.59! WOOT! A good pencil for cheap! You can get 25% off any purchase with the code: pencil25off HERE.
This one is LAVANILA LABORATORIES PURE VANILLA DELUXE MINI ROLLER BALL. To me, this smells like a floral vanilla! I love it! I love it! I love it!!!! 5/5!!! The full size bottle is 0.32oz for $19 making this 0.16oz baby worth $9.50! WOW! Not bad. You can get 15% off any purchase with the code: IPSYLAV15 HERE.
This next one is AYRES ipsy EXCLUSIVE Pampas Sunrise Hand Cream. It smells like lemongrass, and it feels moisturizing to my hands. Definitely a 5/5! The full size is $12.50 for 1.4oz (not to shabby) making this 0.7oz sample worth $6.25. So with that said, you can get 25% off and FREE shipping on orders of $40 or more with the code: IPSY25 HERE.
Finally – theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Committed (pinky nude). Wow… another tongue twister. At first, I wasn’t too sure about this one, it’s a very natural color, but once I put it on and saw how long it really lasted… I fell in love! 5/5! It also smells like a minty vanilla! LOVE! Full size is $17 for 0.25oz, making this 0.04oz sample worth $2.72. If you like, you can get 20% off any purchase with the code: IPSY20 HERE.
So that’s that… The total cost of these samples comes to….. $33.06! Worth it? I would say YES! Since I got this bag a week or two ago, I have used every single item in it, every single day! This is probably one of the BEST bags I’ve gotten!
Just keep in mind, I am not a makeup professional, nor do I claim to be. I don’t know everything there is to know, heck, I don’t really know a lot. However, I do like learning new things, and I do like sharing what little information I know. Is this makeup subscription right for you? Maybe, maybe not. There are tons other subscription services out there, this is just one that I chose to subscribe to.
Don’t forget – You can click HERE to visit the Pura Vida Bracelets website and use the code: VICTORIAPIERCE10 to get a 10% discount on your orders! PLUS, you get FREE SHIPPING on all U.S orders!
