Here are my chronicles ..yes my adventure’s with the world of Ipsy. It’s here that I’d like to do a comparison with our local Malaysian Beauty Bags/Boxes and see if we are really missing out on all that ‘Party in The USA’ kinda fun.
I actually stopped subscribing to our Malaysian Beauty Box/Bag’s about the time I started subscribing to both Ipsy and BirchBox. Thanks to my amazing brother-in-law who is now based in the US i get to also subscribe to the hallmark of beauty boxes and enjoy what the rest of Asian’s can only drool at from afar.
Between Ipsy and BirchBox, I can tell you that Ipsy is in a class of their own. I was sooo dismayed at the uninspiring products and samples I received in my Birchbox that i quit subscribing to them. In fact so disappointed am I that they don’t even warrant time on my post and it’s a chapter in subscribing that I am happy to put behind.
So then let’s have a look at what was in the first of my Ipsy Glam Bag’s. This one is from September and Michelle Phan is not called a genius for nothing.
- Elizabeth Mott – it’s so BIG – Volumizing Mascara
- NYX Single Eyeshadow – ES32 Purple
- Starlooks – Obsidian Kohl
- J. Cat Beauty Fantabulous Lipstick (not in picture as I’ve given this away)
- skyn Iceland – Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
Now really, what did you think? Do you think that Ipsy lived up to muster and put together an awesome bag? I thought so. For someone who has been looking at some variety in my beauty box/bag subscriptions, it was refreshing to see new brands to play with, more make up and full-sized at that and beauty products that I could actually use rather than put aside somewhere in my stash never to be seen again.
As for value, i really couldnt say as Ipsy doesn’t put a price on their items, but suffice to say after paying USD 10 about RM 33 I definitely get much much more on my investment.
I’m looking forward to trying out all these lovely make-up products and while I’m at it.. do stay tuned for more Tales of Ipsy. Until later Cheerio and Happy Chinese New Year to all of you… Gong Xi, Gong Xi
