Ipsy – Review #2

The Legal Disclosure: All product reviews are my own & products have been purchased by myself unless otherwise noted. The reviews will always be honest, full of respect & trust. Some posts may contain affiliate links which means that if you click on the link & make a purchase, I may be compensated (this is at no cost to you). Not all links are affiliate links but will post this on every linked page to be fully transparent. If you would like to learn about how I do a product review or info about subscription services, please comment below or email me at esoterictartan@gmail.com.

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription that costs $10 (plus tax) per month. You will receive five travel-size items and a makeup bag that is exclusive to Ipsy. The products can be anything beauty related such as perfume, hair care products, and make up.

The bag is a super cute rose gold color with a dark blue zipper.


For one day, the 2nd of every month, Ipsy offers add-ons. A sample size product is $3.00 and a full-size product is $12.00. We did two add-ons in this bag. Our bag had a mistake and we got an extra brush instead of the Ahava mud mask sample that I ordered. I have reached out to Ipsy to have my mud mask sent and to see how to return the extra brush. I will update this post once I have the resolution.


UPDATE: I emailed Ipsy customer service and they emailed back quickly are have already shipped a replacement! They told me to keep the 2nd brush which is very kind of them.

All products in this bag are from female-founded brands and “girl boss staples.”

Ipsy recently redid their beauty quiz and have a giveaway this month.

Item 1: Ofra Cosmetics – Star Island Highlighter – This is a beautiful highlighter. This is large enough that it doesn’t seem like a sample size. It is infused with pearl pigments. https://amzn.to/2YiEUR0

My teen loves highlighters so she was excited about this. Made in the USA.

Item 2: Answer From – Luminous Collagen Eye Cream – This has a nice clean scent and goes on smoothly. It is not greasy.

This container is tiny but it doesn’t take much to put this one. Made in Korea.

Item 3: Tarte – Maneater Voluptuous Mascara – I love Tarte products and this is no exception. Their products are made with “good-for-you” ingredients. https://amzn.to/2Ok0kIM

They are a cruelty-free brand.

Item 4: Jolii Cosmetics – Luxe Creme Matte in Lavanda – This is a matte liquid “lippie.” https://amzn.to/2UQQTmr

I was impressed with this color. It was really pretty and wasn’t as bright on as I thought it would be. It was really smooth as well (made with a blend of shea butter & jojoba oil).

This product is vegan and cruelty-free. Made in China.

Item 5: Slmissglam – SS62 Short Shader Brush – This brush is beautiful! They sent me two by accident so I haven’t opened the 2nd one since I’m waiting to hear if they want me to send it back. UPDATE: I emailed Ipsy customer service and they emailed back quickly are have already shipped a replacement! They told me to keep the 2nd brush which is very kind of them.

My teen loves brushes and this one has beautiful detailing. It is a synthetic brush that is created by YouTuber and beauty guru Stephanie Lewis.

Item 6: Add-on Item – MISSING – Ahave Mud Mask – $3.00 – Ipsy accidently sent me a 2nd brush instead of the mask. I have reached out to customer service to get this corrected. UPDATE: I emailed Ipsy customer service and they emailed back quickly are have already shipped a replacement! They told me to keep the 2nd brush which is very kind of them.

Item 7: Add-on Item – Huda Beauty – Eyeshadow Palette in Smokey Obsessions – $12.00 – This palette is tiny but my teen LOVES the colors in it. Her friends loved it as well. There were three different palettes to choose from and we chose “smokey eye.” https://amzn.to/2UR7lDl

I do not wear much makeup but I could tell these were nice shadows.

My kids and I have been getting the Ipsy bags for a year now and absolutely love them! This is the first time there has been an error on my bag and I’m confident it will be resolved quickly. UPDATE: I emailed Ipsy customer service and they emailed back quickly are have already shipped a replacement! They told me to keep the 2nd brush which is very kind of them.

They have their own app which I love! They also offer a points system to earn free sample size products. You can earn points by reviewing your items every month and also earn points for referrals. They have products for purchase on their website as well.

    1. That’s what I love about these bags is getting to try so many different products and brands! I don’t wear a lot of makeup but I have teens so I learn about everything through them. I like the skin care and hair care products. I followed you back. 🙂
