The alarm is going off. it’s 6 a.m. Time to get ready for another job interview. ugh. I brush my teeth, curl my hair, put on my makeup. CRAP. I’m all out of foundation and only have dry clumps left of my mascara. As I search on a man hunt for a way to cover my stress zits, I swear I get more from the thought of not being covered at my interview. Any ways, I went to the job interview, didn’t exactly look my best, wasn’t covered at all and in the end didn’t get the job. But that’s not why I’m telling you this. Im telling you this because I know what its like to have little to no funds, but still have the heart of a true girly girl.
I may not need make up, but I sure do want it! I believe poor girls deserve to have a bit of mascara too. Now most of us have seen the little advertisements on Facebook, Instagram, etc. for Ipsy. If you haven’t, well let me tell you this, It. Is. Amazing. At first I wasn’t sure if it was legit or not. I was worried it would take my money and I wouldn’t get anything I liked. I was completely wrong.*Keep reading to find out how to receive my FREE giveaway Bag*
It Is Legit!
Each month your mailbox receives this little pink package and if your lucky, it has your name on it.*yay* It feels a little bit like Christmas, or your birthday every month. When you open it up there is a makeup bag that had been designed for everyone that has ipsy. They are always so cute! This summer there was one designed to be waterproof (my favorite) and this month for October it was a dark pink spooky bag with lace on it. The zipper had a black bat (so cute).
In the Makeup Bags each month are 5 items, ranging from foundation to lipstick to skin care items. Sometimes they are travel sizes but sometimes they aren’t.
Do You Get the Makeup You Want?
I was very concerned about what I would be getting in my Ipsy bags, how would they know what to give me? I learned very quickly the more I review the items I got, the better my next bag would be. Its true, every month I tell my boyfriend, ” Ah I love what I got! looky look! This is my favorite bag!” he then continues to laugh at me because he knows I will be that excited next month and say the exact same thing.
After a few month of getting ipsy bags I have gotten to try new products that I would have never been able to buy with my budget. I have gotten to try new items I would have never spent money on that I ended up loving! ( facial masks) Ipsy helps you figure out what brands of makeup you like too! Most of the products are NOT sold at your local drugstore, so I normally would not have even known it existed. So next time I’m at the Mall and want to splurge? I’m probably going to find my way to Sephora and buy a different new shade of lip gloss of my new favorite brand.
I honestly can say that every month I feel like I got more than I paid for. If you are thinking, ” I like makeup, but I’m not very pro at applying it, or knowing what to do with it.” don’t worry, the great thing about Ipsy is on their app they have tutorials about how to apply each product and give you tips each month about ways you can change up your makeup routine.
Why is ipsy so great?
A huge plus to getting Ipsy every month is that I won’t ever have to worry about running out of makeup again. I will always be “covered”. So if you are wondering, “should I get an Ipsy bag?” the answer is YES. Its only about $10 a month. They send it, you get it, then you review it on their app! If you review your Bag and the products you end up getting “points”. The points add up and you can get awesome rewards. The rewards are extra products, and you get to pick the ones you want. They usually have a good amount to select from.
Another plus is that if you refer a friend and they use your code, you get more points! More points = more makeup *yay* so If you want to be a friend Please use my code when you sign up 🙂 If you have any questions let me know! I would be happy to answer any questions. Yes I love ipsy, I know that for some people $10 a month is nothing, to others, it feels impossible. That is okay, no pressure. But if you have any thoughts at all about signing up for it, I highly recommend it.
Do something that makes you feel good.
It actually feels really good receiving something fun in the mail each month. I look at it as a positive way to make me feel better about the way I look. It helps encourage me to wake up in time to do my makeup before work instead of sleeping in! And guess what ?! I have a FREE Ipsy bag giveaway. Its one months Ipsy bag, that way you can try it out!
