Ipsy Review – March 2018

Ipsy Review – March 2018

Ipsy is one of my all time favourite subscription services. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy long before I even had an idea of how to use a majority of the products that I received. It’s an inexpensive way to try out a bunch of different beauty products on a regular basis. Each month, subscribers receive a Glam Bag with 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. The service costs $10 USD, shipping is free within the US and an additional $4.95 USD to ship to Canada.

The theme for this month’s bag was all about being creative. I feel like they really managed to showcase that this month! I loved the bag so much. It’s such a cute design and they sent out markers so that you can colour it in! The size of the bag is also perfect. I’ve been wanting a larger bag and Ipsy finally delivered. I’ve been using the bag a bunch since I received it and it keeps all of my staple makeup products in one place!

FURLESS – Loose Pigment in Sinister

I wasn’t sure about this when I first saw the preview. It looked kind of boring in my opinion. After wearing it I do like it more than I was expecting. It’s a really nice warm brown colour. It has pretty good staying power and I can usually get through a day of wear without creasing. I was able to pack it on top of other shadows or wear it on it’s own which was great. I don’t think I would have purchased this on my own but I really like it so far and I’m sure I’ll get some use out of it.

EYEKO – Lash Alert Mascara in Carbon Black

Lately I’ve been on such a mascara kick. I just want to try a new mascara every week. I really like getting sample size mascaras or affordable ones for this reason. I really enjoyed giving this one a try and I would definitely buy this again in the future. This makes a really great lower lash line mascara but it also can be built up for a voluminous top lash! It was extremely black and didn’t flake at all so I was super happy with this one!

WINKY LUX – Powdered Lights in Charm

I was actually shocked by this highlighter. It looks normal and average when you see it in the pan. The first time I used it I layered it over a creme highlighter so I really didn’t get the full effect. But after trying it on it’s own I’m 100% in love! It has this really nice pink flip to it that looks perfect for the spring season! It’s not super glittery and it wears a decent amount of time on me. It’s not super long wearing but it lasts about the same amount of time as other highlighters that I own. The packaging is adorable and it’s perfect for travelling or putting in my makeup bag when I’m on the go!

FINDING FERDINAND – Mini Lipstick in Au Naturel

I’m still unsure of my feelings toward this lipstick. It has a really odd scent to it, like it smells chemically and cheap in my opinion but I weirdly like the smell! The colour is really nice but I think I would have to mix it a lot of the time because it can make my lips look sickly at times. The formula is what I’m unsure of. It has a glossy finish to it but it skips across my lips sometimes and doesn’t look opaque on my lips. It looks better when I apply it on top of a liner because that seems to help the formula and the colour.


GOLDFADEN MD – Facial Detox Mask

I wasn’t completely wowed by this product but I think it’s something I have to use a bit longer to really see the full effect. I never really see a huge difference right away when I use these detox type masks. It did leave my skin feeling soft and I didn’t react to it or break out right after which is important. I have so many other face masks that I really like though so I don’t think I would really purchase this again in the future!


Overall I was not excited by the bag when I first saw the preview but I’m sure happy with it after testing it out for a few weeks. The products were all good quality and I found a few gems in the bag!

Have you tried any of these products? Are you subscribed to Ipsy? What did you get in your most recent bag? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
