Beauty | September Ipsy Review

THEME: This month’s theme is “Lashing Out,” which can mean anything from some fluffy falsies to bold beauty trends. IMO, this isn’t really a “theme” per se, but at the very least, it’s a cute play on words. BAG: I really like this month’s bag. The outside is a simple black with gold trim at the bottom.…

Beauty | August Ipsy Review

THEME: This month’s theme is “Selfie With No Filter,” or at least that’s my guess based on the insert card. Some months Ipsy’s really great about conveying what the theme is, like May’s was travel-themed (see review here), or even January’s “Game Face” athletic/goal-setting theme (see review here). Other times, it’s anyone’s best guess, like last…

Beauty | July Ipsy Review

THEME: Summer treats? This is the first Ipsy bag that doesn’t have a monthly hashtag to share…but all of the promos are pools and popsicles and bikinis, so I’d hazard to guess it’s a generic summer theme (which I can’t complain about…it is summer…at least for some of you out there. I’ve spent the last three months…

Beauty | June Ipsy Review

THEME: This month’s theme is “Flying Colors” in celebration of Pride! The looks featured on the Ipsy website are super vibrant, so if you’re planning to go to any festivals or parades, I’d definitely recommend looking at some of their tutorials. (I believe they’re also on YouTube if you don’t have an account on Ipsy).…

Beauty | May Ipsy Review

I can’t believe May’s already here (and it’s almost gone)…but that’s probably because I’ve been traveling non-stop (hence the lack of posts on here recently). The first part of May I galavanted around the Grand Canyon (with a 24-hour pitstop in Las Vegas), followed by a visit to the midwest for my MBA graduation, law…

Beauty | April Ipsy Review

Another month, another review! I feel like April’s flown by, but that’s probably because I’ve started to get into “graduation mode” with classes wrapping up and finals starting. So without further adieu, a review of this month’s Ipsy bag: THEME: This month’s theme was “social butterfly,” which according to the card that came in the bag,…

Beauty | March Ipsy Review

THEME: Creative, in collaboration with LA-based artist Priscilla Witte. She’s a street artist known for “colorful murals and relatable illustrations,” inspiring Ipsy’s first-ever “coloring book-style Glam Bag.” I really like the idea behind this month’s theme, because featuring actual artists gives the bag more personality and gives you someone to look up and follow (if you’re…
