This is yet another cool thing Story told me about, and I just had to sign up. It's $10 a month and they send you a cuuuuuuute makeup bag with 3-5 samples of awesome products! Body lotion, face lotion, lipgloss, hair stuff. Some I've received are brands I've heard of (like Bare Minerals) and some are brands I haven't heard of (Pop) but everything I've received so far has been awesome. I started in January and just received my March bag Friday.
I think the best part about it (besides the quality stuff to try) is that it's a fun little gift for yourself once a month. A little present to Anna from the mailbox. The truth is, I also think it's helping me save money too. I know, I know -- hear me out! I can VERRRRRRY easily piddle away $10 (and more) in the Target or Walmart beauty aisles. That'll end up getting me one, maybe two things, which I may like or not like. But now that I get an ipsy bag every month, when I am at those stores, I think "My ipsy bag will be coming soon!" and I don't pick up a bunch of stuff when I'm there.
Look what I got this month:
It's Pacifica Body Butter, Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Rebel and Be a Bombshell eyeshadow in Bora Bora. Can we say SUMMER IS COMING!
The lotion is seriously just the scent of summer ... I don't know how to describe it better than that! The lip gloss is FAB and the eye shadow goes on so smooth. Awesome! Best part (other than getting cool stuff) is that you can log on to your ipsy account, review the products you received and get coupons/promo codes for ordering from the same company! Win-win-win!
Hopefully you can find $10 in your monthly budget to do a little something nice for yourself. It's totally worth it. :)
