A friend from high school introduced me to Ipsy after I was complaining about Birchbox on my blog. Both of us cancelled our Birchboxes in December.

We were both on the waiting list for a couple of months, so we just recieved our first Ipsy Bags. Ipsy opens it up every couple of months for new members.

It is the same cost as Birchbox - $10 a month.

The first difference I noticed was the fact that Ipsy sends it's items in a shiny pink padded envelope.

While I loved the high quality packaging of the Birchbox, the Ipsy items came in a reusable makeup bag. It's not high quality but, it doesn't matter - it will be perfect for my gym bag.

Three of the four items I received were full size items. There were NO perfume samples, NO tiny samples of lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. I am pleased with this first package!

Items Reviewed.

Be a Bombshell Blush in Sweet Cheeks. It is a highly pigmented bright pink. In other words, a little goes a long way. I really like it - it's perfect for my skintone.

MICA Beauty Cosmetics mineral eye shadow shimmer. I am not a huge fan of shimmer eye shadows so, I was hesitant to even try this mineral shadow. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the color I received - Earth - It is not overly shimmery or shiny. It is just a touch of light shimmer in a natural color.

Miss Professional Nail Sation Nail Lacquer in *Of Corset I'll Call You* - it's a lovely light pink. It looks like a bright bubble gum pink when in fact, it's very very light. I had to apply three coats to get a color similar to the bottle. Miss Professional Nail made this color just for Ipsy. 

Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing and Texturizing Powder. I haven't given this a try. 

I hope that Ipsy stays strong and doesn't fade for me like Birchbox did.

Do you get Ipsy, Birchbox, or another monthly subscription?
