Happy November everyone! It’s been a little while since my last blog post - almost a month, woah! Sometimes, life just gets insane and something has to go in order for me to maintain my sanity! Since it’s been a bit, I thought I’d throw it back to my favorite types of blog posts - a review of my subscription boxes! Subscription box posts are close to my heart since they are truly what introduced me to the blogging world. If you’re looking to try a new subscription boxes, blogger reviews are your best friend! Since then, I’ve tried a million and a half subscription boxes and now subscribe to only a handful, although I’m always up for trying new ones if you have any suggestions for me!
The Ipsy Glam Bag is a monthly beauty subscription box that gives you a personalized bag of full-size and sample size beauty and make-up products for $10 a month. All of their products also come in a cute, handy little make-up bag!
Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank: Bitten & Bronzed Matte Bronzer | Full-Size $4.99
Box Faves: The packaging on this Lisa Frank x Glamour Dolls bronzer was probably the best part of this ipsy! As a kid, I was obsessed with Lisa Frank stationary and I think the company is doing a great job of appealing to 90s kids like me! The bronzer itself was also a nice warm shade which goes perfectly with a lot of the autumnal tones appearing in my outfits lately! I also absolutely loved the emulsion moisturizer from Ling Skincare, although with that price tag, I probably won’t be re-purchasing. I do appreciate, however, that ipsy has put products from both high-end and inexpensive brands into their bags.
Box Flops: Definitely the lip gloss and the scrubbing cream. I don’t have a real use for scrubbing cream and I am a 110% matte lip kind of girl so lip glosses are always a dud for me. Ipsy’s algorithm seems to be getting better and better over time so I reviewed these products saying I don’t like these types of products. Fingers crossed that this helps to further personalize my ipsy bags in the future!
True story: I have never actually purchased a bronzer because I receive so many in my subscription boxes. Bronzer is one of those products that I use pretty sparingly so it’s nice that my ipsy bags keep me stocked up! This month’s ipsy bag was just a middle of the line one for me. While there were a couple of items I absolutely loved, there were also a couple of products that I don’t really have a use for at all. Although the products themselves weren’t bad or anything, I just can’t say that I love every product in the box :( What did you think of your November ipsy box? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
