This month’s Ipsy theme is Hot Summer Nights. Makes me think of Meat Loaf. The performer, not the Tuesday night dinner plate!
This bag totally made up for the not-so-fun bag last month. It’s a holographic silver with a rainbow of undertones, and I love the top-view umbrellas with offset shadows! The inside is a nice baby pink color, too. Something I wouldn’t recommend for constant use because it will get dirty easily, but I think it’s cute! And now, for what came inside… Continue reading “July’s Ipsy Haul”
This month’s Ipsy theme is Rebel Rebel. Like the David Bowie song, though the name is all they have in common.
This is definitely not one of my favorite bags this month. The rebellious edginess they are trying for gets a bit lost when they spray paint “makeup” on the bag, you know? And now, for what came inside… Continue reading “June’s Ipsy Haul!”
This month’s Ipsy theme is Destination Chic. And that makes me think of Josh Gates, as in Destination: Truth. I likes me some Josh Gates. His show Expedition Unknown makes you feel like you’re on the travels with him, sharing in the adventure, the fun, and the goofiness. (Of course he’s cool, though – he and I share a birthday!)
I love how they’ve done an envelope-style bag this month! It came in three different colors: pink, purple, and blue. Lucky me, I got my favorite color! And now, for what came inside… Continue reading “May’s Ipsy Haul!”
One year ago tomorrow, I posted my very first Ipsy bag review. Has it really been that long???
This month’s Ipsy theme is Dreamers. Like ethereal, glamorous…. dreamscapes!
How fun is this bag? Well, I guess you’d have to like tie-dye. I am ambivalent towards tie-dye myself, but I am loving these colors! Ipsy did pretty good this month, I’m tellin’ ya. And now, for what came inside… Continue reading “April’s Ipsy Haul!”
This month’s Ipsy theme is Hello, Spring. Sort of like Hello, Kitty! Only… well, I’d have been much happier with a bag of Hello Kitty cosmetics. At least spring is here!
This month I didn’t just grimace when I saw my sneak peek for my bag – I howled. In outrage. See, one of the special items they were sending out was a liquid eyeliner by cult favorite Illamasqua. Ohhh, how I love my Illamasqua! I even have some of their polish on my nails right now as I type. But would I get that? Nope. Not that lucky. I do like the bag, though. For some weird reason the colors kind of speak to me. And now, for what came inside… Continue reading “March’s Ipsy Haul!”
This month’s Ipsy theme is Pretty in Pink, which I love. Oh, wait – why? Because Hims and I had a special Valentine’s Day date to go see the 30th Anniversary showing of John Waters’s Pretty In Pink on the 14th. I’d never got to see it in the theater, and he’d not seen the whole movie – only snippets. (With that revelation a friend cried out “Whaaaaaa??? You’re kidding, right?”)
When I looked at the sneak peek Ipsy always sends out, I grimaced. The only things I was even remotely liking were the Luxie brush and the bag – as long as the bag didn’t turn out to be icky in reals. Guess what? I was pleasantly surprised about all of it! And now, for what came inside… Continue reading “February’s Ipsy Haul!”
Yessss, I know it’s already February… January’s Ipsy Glam Bag was themed “All Eyes On You”. They added a lip balm, which I’d be afraid to use near my eyes – but hey, it’s Ipsy! 🙂
The bag is cute! All the Mod-type girls with the cute wisp of hair and those glasses! Oh yes, I did like this bag. And now, for what came inside… Continue reading “January’s Ipsy Haul!”
