Ipsy January 2014 Review.

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription box. Each month you get 5-6 beauty products inside a makeup bag. If you’d like to subscribe to Ipsy, I’d appreciate you using my referral link. It arrives each month in a pink bubble mailer!

This month’s theme was ’19 Reason’. I’m not sure why they chose ’19’ reason to make it an amazing new year, but the products were pretty good!

This month I received:

Benefit the POREfessional. Great product! Make yours smooth very smooth and even toned. Hides blemishes and pores. Perfect for under foundation. I was hoping I would get this in my bag! A bigger sample size would’ve been nice ;).

(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm. I wasn’t excited at first about getting this in my bag, but I love it! It has a nice mild scent and a nice thicker consistency. I don’t like how it comes out though, it should have an angled application tip rather than just a hole (like a lotion or something). It worked well and kept my lips hydrated.

Balanced Guru Balm Me Up Organic Sweet Cocoa & Tangy Body Balm. Interesting smell, I think I like it. Haha. I don’t like the ‘balm’ texture, I would rather have a cream/lotion. It seems to help with dry skin though, but it’s a little on the greasy side.

Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Tissue. Not the best smell. But removed my makeup fine, but I wouldn’t say any better than the store brand I use now.

yaby Liquid Foundation in Buff. I’m not a fan of receiving foundation in a subscription box. This seems like it will make my skin color good enough so that’s a plus. I haven’t used it yet to tell you how blend-able it is or how good the coverage is.

This month’s bag had silhouettes of makeup and travel containers which makes it cute for traveling. But it’s not my favorite bag by far. Overall I was really happy with my Ipsy bag this month. I’m glad to see totally new brands and no Be a Bombshell! Because I think the point is to try all sorts of different brands not the same one over and over! Can’t wait to see what next month’s bag will contain.

  1. I’m so jealous of the girls who received Benefit this month. I’ve been dying to try Porefessional.

    I got Yaby concealer a few months ago, and really liked it. I imagine the foundation is just as good.


  2. You got almost all different stuff than I got in mine! The only thing we shared in common were the cleansing tissues. My favorite product so far came in last month’s bag and was some eyeshadow that comes in a little bottle kind of like a fingernail polish bottle. I can’t remember the name of it but I loved it so much I ordered a couple more colors. I think it is great way to try new things I never would have picked up before.
