Ipsy Review : January 2019

For those of you who don’t know about this subscription bag it is  $10 and contain 5 deluxe size samples (and sometimes full size products)  each month.

Ipsy starts with a beauty quiz that asks you questions about different things you like as well as your different features (i.e. Blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin). Each month you also can review the products your received; so if you love something you let them know and if you hate something you let them know.

Lets get into this months bag!


The bag was cute but not functional for me. If you can tell in the photo the bag gets dirty easily. (my husbands cat took the liberty to walk all over the table and over my stuff)

Now for the products!

Tarte; Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in Medium Sand

First of all, this shade is no where near close to anything I would be able to use, even in the summer with a tan this would make me look like an umpa lumpa. Second, come on Ipsy! We have a beauty profile for a reason! I know mine say’s fair skinned. This us a total bummer too because I have wanted to try this foundation so bad but haven’t wanted to fork over the full price for it! Oh well I suppose.

VDL; Lumilayer Primer

I always enjoy getting new primers to try out! I normally stray away from “lumi” type primers due to the fact that I have oily skin and don’t need help with a glow. And I won’t be trying out this brand’s “lumi” primer again! It made my skin more oily and the sample size we received was more like a single use as there was not much in the bottle to begin with. This was a big down fall for the bag this month.


Luxie; 1010 Small Contour Brush

On a brighter note, ANOTHER BRUSH! As we all know this is probably one of my favorite items to get in a subscription! Luxie is the most common I seem to receive and are great quality so it really makes it nice to.



Ahava; Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream in Sea-Kissed

I swear they were trying to make up for the small primer by having this larger than sample size hand cream. I was honestly surprised by the size of this. It also smells really good! This is the perfect size for my purse so I have been carrying it since I got it. I will say this is one of the better items from this month.






Fluide; Lip Gloss in Elsewhere

Yay….a clear gloss…what more do I say about it. The only thing is this is super sticky. Not the best.




And with that I conclude my Ipsy bag for January. I’m really disappointed in this bag and feel like I might need to retake my beauty quiz just to refresh my selections. I’m hoping in the near future I will be up for the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus because I would totally spend more for full size items. Until then I will retake my quiz, cross my fingers and hope the coming months get better. I hope you enjoy!!

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the corner!
