This month was a little exciting for me on the beauty subscription front – I got my first ipsy bag! Ipsy (formerly myglam) was founded by Michelle Phan of YouTube fame, and has finally come to Canada – so naturally, I had to give it a try. With shipping, the bag comes to $14.95/month for Canadians. The American bag this month contained a BareMinerals lipgloss, but they were unable to ship these to us so we received two other items instead (the brush and serum). I got my first bag last week, and I love it! Take a look at what I got:
This blending brush + pouch was one of the items Canadian subscribers received this month in place of the lipgloss – this brush is really nice and soft – and pink!
The other item I received in place of the gloss was this Eclos Anti-Aging Cellular Activated Face Serum(15 mL sample – Full size = $24.99/50 mL) – this serum is meant to reduce the look of wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful complexion.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara (3 g sample – full size = $23/8.5 g) – I’ve gotten samples of this mascara before in other beauty boxes, and I really like it – nice applicator, lenghtening formula, beautiful results.
theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow in Matt Batali (single eyeshadow – full size = palette with 9 shades, $34.50) – I’ve been meaning to try theBalm products for a while, so I was really happy to find this in my bag. The shadow is a really nice smokey dark brown, which actually pairs perfectly with the Starlet eyeliner I received (see below).
