Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service. For $10/month, members get deluxe samples and full-sized products along with a tote bag to keep all the items in. Each month’s tote design depends on that month’s theme.
January’s theme was A True Star Will Always Shine. I say this every month about Ipsy, but it’s true: the contents and the bag are awesome. (The lining of January’s bag was stars, which was perfect for the theme!) For previous Ipsy boxes I’ve received, check out this tag.
- London SOHO New York: Crease Brush
I really like how soft this brush is. Plus, I don’t have a crease brush so this is a very welcome item in my bag! I have an angled contour brush for eyes, but not a crease one. Glad I didn’t buy a crease brush when I was looking at them several weeks ago!
- Josie Maran: Argan Oil
Um, I LOVE this item. Josie Maran has built a large portion (if not all?) of her beauty empire on this mythical argan oil and is a huge reason why it’s all the rage nowadays. As such, I’ve always wanted to try out argan oil, particularly since my skin has gotten so incredibly dry this winter. Really stoked to receive this, and I’m excited to see all the wonderful things it will do for me.
- Big Sexy Hair: Spray and Play Volumizing Hairspray
I’m not a big hairspray girl, but this is a great size to not only try out this brand but also take it with me when traveling. If only I did enough with my hair to warrant using hairspray…
- Pacifica: Body Butter in “Tuscan Blood Orange”
A girl can never have too much body butter, especially in January! I love the blood orange scent as I am all about blood oranges. I also don’t have anything citrus-y in my body butter stash so I like that I can try a new scent as well as a new brand. The convenient tube form is much appreciated, as my go-to body butter brand The Body Shop always has it in those tubs.
- Nailtini1 in “Frappe”
I was really pleased with the Nailtini polish Ipsy included in November’s bag and this one is no different. (I didn’t get the bright red polish pictured in the picture, obviously.) The pale pinky nude color is a perfect work-appropriate neutral.
