March 2016 Ipsy Spoilers
IT Cosmetics – Bye Bye Under Eye (Concealer)
Illamasqua Precision Ink
NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick potentially in Kitten Heels, Soft Spoken, & Pink Lust
Make Up For Ever Step 1 Primer in Hydrating
The only thing of this I wouldn’t be excited about is the cheek + lip. It doesn’t look like a shade that I’m in need of (flattering on me yes, needing another, no). I’m also not sure anymore if I want the concealer simply due to the low chance that even the light shade will be light enough for me. But I’d be excited to try it and see if I could mix, IF I get it.
About Ipsy: Ipsy is the $10/month beauty subscription bag known for being more ‘makeup’ based. They ship you 4-6 deluxe to full size samples every month, inside a cute or chic makeup bag, all wrapped up in a bright pink bubble-wrap envelope. Samples are somewhat customized to your beauty profile, and come from a variety of well known to indie brands, ranging from high end to drugstore prices. You can earn ~100 points each month for reviewing your products and bag, and sharing those reviews on Facebook or Twitter. These points can then be redeemed for specific point rewards (samples/cosmetics) varying in value.
Now… you might have already seen the spoilers around, but as part of my project to see how good Ipsy gets at matching my profile, I went back through to make sure I knew my options, and there’s some new ones!
Ipsy’s Beauty Quiz
TIP: Ipsy customer service has recommended no more than 1-3 choices in each category, saying that their most satisfied customers tend to get the best results with this limited selection. (I’m not good at following that… oh well)
UPDATES: Highlighter, Bronzer, Blushes (& I believe Lip Liner) are now SEPARATE items. I also believe Toner & Mist, Serum, Exfoliant, and Lip Balm are new options.
