Ipsy has made some big changes. With those changes came another subscription level I just couldn’t pass up. For $50 a month, you receive 12 beauty products. 8 full sized and 4 sample/ deluxe sample sizes.
Because I am spending $50 on one box, I will no longer be getting the regular Ipsy or Ipsy plus. But, let’s get into the box and see if the change is worth it!
The included bag.
I am not sure if this will occur every month, or we got a bag just because Ipsy came out with a Betty Boop collaboration. Either way, this double sided bag is super cute and nicely sized! It is different than the bag that regular Ipsy subbies will get.
Nanette Lenore Beautiful Times Perfume
This fragrance has notes of mandarin, violet, and caramelized sugar. I really enjoy the mixture of the floral and warm scents. The fragrance does linger quite a while. I think I have found my fall fragrance!
Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm
This is a product I have actually talked about before. This so happens to be my favorite makeup melting balm. If I am correct, we were actually sent the limited editing jumbo size, which is awesome! I am so happy to have this balm back in my life. I just couldn’t bring myself to purchase it, when there are less expensive options that work almost as well.
The Saem Natural Avocado and Shea Butter Sheet Mask Set
I love sheet masks. I do them a few times a week. Can’t go wrong with some extra hydration! I may even use the avocado one today to prep for some poorly done FX makeup I am doing for a Halloween Costume tonight.
Papa Recipe Egg Plant Clearing Mud Cream Mask
This is a creamy mask with a slightly grainy texture. The egg plant extract is to soothe and exfoliate. Ipsy says it is setting your skin up for a bright and clear future. Sounds good to me. I’ll give it a try.
C’Est Moi Beauty Reflect lip gloss in Opulence
This gloss is made with natural and organic oils- which I love. The shade opulence gives your lips a really juicy sheen, and I am really enjoying it.
Coloured Rain Eyeshadow In Champagne Life
It’s no secret that I love the Coloured Rain shadow formula so I was happy to get this in my box. Ever since I did my singles cruise look, I have been reaching for my single shadows much more often!
The shade is a really pretty and pigmented champagne, just as you would expect. It really makes the inner corner pop. It also makes a beautiful lid shade.
Makeup Geek Highlighter In Midnight Sun
This is my first ever makeup geek highlight! Looking at the shade in the pan I was a little disappointed, because I thought it may end up too dark for my skin tone.
It actually turned out looking really nice on the skin. It kind of reminds me of how Becca Opal looks on me. The makeup geek highlight is buttery and pigmented. I’m stoked that i finally got to try one!
L.O.C.K Color Unicorn Glow Long Wear Primer
I really like this primer. It gave my that lit from with in glow, with out making my skin look glittery or oily. I am probably going to pick up the full size once I finish this sample.
Betty Boop x Ipsy Cheek to Cheek Blush Palette
I was initially hesitant about this product, because I wasn’t too impressed with Ipsy last colab. Fortunately, this is a great little blush palette. You get on matte blush and two toppers.
The shades are just a bit chalky. But, that isn’t a big deal to me, I can tap my brush off. The shades look beautiful on my fair skin. I can see my self reaching for this a ton. Good job Ipsy!
BioRace L’eau Hydrating Treatment Serum
This serum felt very moisturizing and I do feel that it helped improve my complexion. It didn’t not feel like too much either. It was gentle and sunk in to my skin quickly.
F.A.R.A.H Brushes Midnight Pro Trio
It wouldn’t be an Ipsy bag or box without som FARAH brushes. This trio actually feels like much better quality than the previous FARAH brushes I have gotten. This trio comes with a blush brush, a foundation brush, and a smaller stippling brush. They do their job well and there was no shedding. The shape of the handle makes them easy to hold as well.
Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Palette
Funny story. I used to have this palette. Then got rid of it and regretted it a week later. However, I wasn’t going to go buy it again. So, getting it in my box made me super happy!
The mattes are buttery and pigmented. The metallic really packs a punch. This is the perfect quick, easy and cohesive fall palette. I honesty prefer the smaller huda palettes to the larger ones.
The one con I have with this box is that product prices are not included on the card. Other than that, I love it! There was a nice mix of skin care and makeup. Everything works for me, and it’s all stuff I will actually use. I have seen other people review their Ipsy Ultimate, and they didn’t seem to happy. I must be the weird one out, because I am excited about this box. I am totally okay with the $50 price tag. I do have to say, I miss the regular Ipsy. I may end up re subbing, just because I miss her.
Did you get Ipsy Ultimate? What are your thoughts on the box?
