Happy Friday Eve, y’all! Tomorrow is the big day … we’re moving our daughter back to university to start her sophomore year! After the snake incident (it still has not been located, btw), she is more than ready to get back to campus. Can’t say I blame her, really. That means, though, that today has been filled with laundry and finishing up the last bit of packing. It also means that this post and tomorrow’s will go live later (and probably shorter) than usual. I really need to work on scheduling posts haha
Let’s talk about some Ipsy! I have talked about how much I love subscription boxes, and Ipsy was my first. The plan was to sub to Ipsy and Birchbox, decide which I liked more, then drop the other one. Wellllll … I have kept both, plus I have added Target, Walmart, Macy’s and now Sol Theory (exciting stuff on this one to come). They are totally addicting. I love when the time comes to learn what’s coming that month. I almost stalk my apps and websites. I Google spoilers. It’s a little sad haha but a lot of fun! I love being able to try products, some of them high-end, with minimal investment and waste. There are few things worse than spending $45 on a foundation, only to learn it breaks you out, or oxidizes terribly. Most stores have great return policies, but let’s be honest, I am that person. I will forget about it until it’s too late.
Subscription boxes nearly remove that completely. I say nearly because I still buy products that are not featured in the boxes. One thing I like, that Ipsy has started doing, is giving you the option to choose one product you’d like. I only found out about this through the newsletter from My Subscription Addiction. Every month, she lists your options and you just email Ipsy and tell them which one you want! Super easy, but I’ve only done it once.
This month, Ispy did some cool stuff. For one, there are four full-sized items. Two sheet masks, an eyeliner and a brush. The second cool thing was having three different bag possibilities. Since I tend to be insanely positive, my bag is quite fitting. I was super excited about almost everything in this month’s bag. If you have read my blog for a week or two, you will know how much I like skin care and face masks, of any kind. I am working on perfecting winged liner, so any liquid eyeliner is a fantastic option, and I am desperate for a GOOD blending/crease brush. I’m pulling for you, Glamour Dolls! The only thing I have tried from my bag so far was the mascara, and it was awful. I know MUFE is a good brand. My only thought was this sample sat in a warehouse for a while, thus drying the product out.
Do y’all subscribe to any monthly boxes? Which ones? What are your favorites? Lemme know!
