Cost: $10 a month

The Products: Full size and samples of makeup and beauty products delivered in a reusable makeup bag.

This month’s Ipsy theme is Black Magic

We’re so inspired by Valfré’s drawings that we asked her to custom design this month’s bag.


Here’s what came in my bag:

theBalm Cosmetics in CabanaBoy Blush-Romantic dusty-rose with plum undertones

Meet your new blush crush—CabanaBoy. He feels silky smooth and brings you an incredibly natural glow. Plus we love how the super cute packaging looks like a mini romance novel.

I liked the color of this blush but the sample size was ridiculous. Call me high maintenance but no… Trying to get a blush brush in there was irritating.

Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner

The little black dress of liners. One sweep of this intensely dark shade is all you need to create a chic look. Easy to apply and goes with everything.

This liner is amazing! It’s so pigmented and it isn’t patchy at all.

Preventive Measures 101 Lips 101 After Hours

Give it time. This innovative balm releases moisture over the course of hours, so lips feel smooth throughout the day. Let’s start the clock.

This is a nice lip balm. I usually don’t like the lip balms that come in my Ipsy bags but I like this one. It’s not the most moisturizing lip balm but it does the trick when I’m in a pinch (that kind of rhymed).

Promise Organic Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion with Hibiscus

We admit it. We have a coconut addiction. And this gentle lotion gives us just the hit we need every day. Conditions skin and transports us to the tropics.

I’m super picky when it comes to skincare. This was nice. A great simple moisturizer. This did come in handy when my skin freaked out and I wanted something simple to use. However, I’m getting older and I need more in my moisturizer.

tre’StiQue Matte Lip Crayon in Belize Bordeaux

Lips on lock. Creamy and lightweight formula glides on smoothly and leaves a long-lasting matte finish. Our go-to for a perfect pout.

I’m not a huge fan of this color. I have so many reds and so many subscription boxes send red (which is really annoying). If I wore red more often, I would like this product but I don’t. The pigmentation and the formula are great which makes me wish I got a different shade.

Below are swatches of the makeup in this bag. I’m really loving the eyeliner!

Overall, this bag is a miss this month. I only really like the Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner. That being said the Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner retails for $19 so I guess this bag, in a way, is a win!
