Ipsy May 2014

18 May


Ipsy’s main sells are 1) mostly full-sized products and 2) a much larger focus on makeup than other subscription boxes. If these are the things that attracted you to Ipsy, this is pretty much the worst bag ever. One full-sized item, one makeup item… oh, and they’re the same one. Sigh.


On the plus side, this month’s bag is perfect. Sturdy canvas with a very spring-y theme, and it’s decently sized. But is it worth the $10 I spent on this month’s subscription? Ehh…. sure.


Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo (full size/no price): This is a new Pacifica item I suppose, because it’s not on their site and there’s no traces of it on the web. Thus it is kind of hard to price, but considering that they sell palettes with 4 pans of shadow for $14 I’m guessing not that high. It is a really nice shadow though: smooth and super pigmented.


This is one swipe of shadow onto dry skin. Look at how pigmented the copper is! And I swear the light pink is there, it’s just… the same color as my skin. It has a lovely almost opal-like sift, and makes a great highlighter.


Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF 50 (1oz/$2.20): It’s a nice gesture to include sunscreen, but as I’ve mentioned in other posts I don’t use anything under SPF 75 and I am very attached to my current one (Neutrogena Dry Touch). And at a whopping one ounce, this is the largest item in the bag. Urgh. I guess I’ll use it on my body, but it’s still not as much sun protection as I prefer.


derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub (1oz/$15): I’d be more excited about this if I hadn’t received a derma e item in last month’s Birchbox, AND a microdermabrasion scrub from Ipsy in April. I’m almost literally swimming in exfoliants from my boxes. I mean, I’ll use it, but I don’t know if I like bouncing my skin between so many products. I have both physical and chemical exfoliants in full size that I love… please stop giving them to me, Ipsy. Please.


Pur-lisse pur~moist hydra balance moisturizer (.5oz/$16): I literally already own a full-sized moisturizer from Pur-lisse. Not this exact one, but I really, really do not need this. Ipsy, I have so much skincare. I don’t need more. I get enough from Birchbox. I just want makeup ;~;


Hey Honey, Take It Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask (10ml/$7): This is actually the only skincare item I’m actually somewhat excited for. I love masks, and there’s enough in this tiny sample for 2 applications if you apply it lightly. The full-sized one is kind of pricey though: I’d never actually buy this, but it’s nice to have around.

Total box value: $40.20 + eyeshadow

The box value looks really high, but that’s due to how overpriced most skincare items are. There were tons of things I would have actually liked in my box this month: the Revlon balm, the brushes, the Too Faced Bronzer. And my profile is set for no skincare and lots of makeup. So why did I get this abomination (which I’m sure could have gone to a better home?). I really do wonder if Ipsy’s quiz matters at all.
