My June Ipsy Bag and First Giveaway!! (Multiple Items!)

Hey everyone! So my Ipsy bag just came in today (still waiting on my Target Beauty Box though :( ) Anyway, this isn't my review or anything I just wanted to show everyone what I got! If you don't know what Ipsy is, it's a 10$ a month subscription service where you get 4-5 beauty items a month in a cute bag! We typically get 1-3 FULL SIZED items a month too! If you would like to try it, you should use my reff. link Click HERE!

What I Got:

Psssst! Dry Shampoo

Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter

Starlooks Lip Liner in Tickle Me Pink

Jcat Glitter Creme Palette in Suzie

NYX Mosaic Powder in Dare

Now on to my FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY! This consists of items I have both purchased, gotten in subs., and have got as free with purchase items. These represent a SURPLUS of items I already own so I decided to do a giveaway instead of a trade with people on Ipsy since I don't really NEED anything lol (trust me I have a million mascaras, blushes, face products, and hair products, the last thing I need is to add more, haha.)

Some things are samples, travel size, and full size!

Here is the list! :

Impress Press on Manicure Nails in It Girl

Osis+ Gelastic Hair Gel (Full Size)

Nyx Mosaic Powder in Dare (Full Size)

Psssst! Dry Shampoo (Travel Size)

Chella Ivory Lace Highlight Pencil (Full Size)

Benefit They're Real! Mascara (Travel Size)

Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter (Travel sized)

Paul Mitchell Curls Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Creme-Gel (Sample Size)

Mario Badescu Whitening Mask (Sample Size)

Murad Age Diffusing Serum (Sample size)

Exuviance Optilight Essential 6 Serum (foil)

And a pic of everything!

This is a Rafflecopter one so please enter below: (PLEASE NOTE! You must do BOTH of the two entries to be entered! the others are just bonus entries! :) )

Open to U.S. and Canada! :)

    1. Thanks for entering! Ipsy is totally worth it, I have a bunch of past bags up in my blog and we always get well over the value of what we pay and I have never once gotten a small or foil sample from them!
      I get Influenster too and I've just gotten SO MANY nails I don't know what to do at this point because I love to paint mine lol, I also bought the gel here with the coupon from the last box for my mom for her to inform me she uses "spray gel" not "gel gel" whatever that means lol.

      Delete
    2. hahaha, that's good to know! I'm on the waitlist now...just signed myself up...hopefully I'll get in on the July one! Those imPress nails weren't that great. I saw Influenster sent those out so since I didn't get in on that box I figured I'd go out buy some and give them a try and they didn't last long at all! They came off by the next day! I was furious hahaha because after paying like $6 for something you kinda expect it to work, lol. I just got the May Wax Product box from Influenster and it wasn't that great either. I have a re view of it up on my blog (http://talesfromaninfluenster.blogspot.com/). Otherwise though Influenster has been awesome to me and I've tried out some pretty great stuff. :)

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I have literally gotten LOADS of them and they always send me short ones! Mine stayed for like 3 days on my hands, but they last longer as a pedi. I can't bring myself to purchase 6$ nails that don't stay at least a week though. I'm not a fan of the sticker nails they sent out either, I guess if they were cut into strips for art that would be one thing but WTH! They won't lay flat no matter how hard I try!
      My friend got the wax one too and she didn't like it, I think we are more so peeved by the sudden want for video submission because some of the things they ask for are like what? You want people to wax on a video or to "dance" with deoderant? WHO DOES THIS?! lol

    1. Thanks for entering! I opened this up specifically to include Canadians because I know you guys get shafted a lot when it comes to subs. and contests (like the Ipsy ones :/) Glad you are loving Ipsy too! :)

  6. I've heard that there's a helly waiting list for Ipsy, but I've been wanting to try it out. I'll talk with Meow when he gets home and see if he's cool with me signing up. If it's all good, I'll use your reference link tho.

    1. Thanks! There is a waitlist BUT usually it only lasts a week or two! If you sign up before, I'd say the 20th, you will most likely get on for the July bag.

    3. I'm so glad that they started more customization too! I've been with them for over a half a year now and I really haven't been bitter with them yet, I think it's because even if I don't like a product, there's enough of it to fully evaluate or to give to someone instead of tiny samples. I just appreciate that they don't send out teeny tiny things!

  26. Sneak peaks are always so fun, especially with Ipsy. The downside to Ipsy is reading the endless emails about:
    1) anything relating to tracking emails and shipping. Comments like: I didn't get a tracking number yet, has anyone from Timbuktu received theirs yet? Tracking says it's been in a city 2 hours away from me for days, maybe I should go drive there and pick it up. I didn't receive mine in time for a graduations, birthday, wedding, party, the ball at a castle with Prince Charming, etc. I've been running home from work/school every day to stalk the postman but still nothing.
    2) when people do get their bags, they complain about the product, colour or even Ipsy itself for not have customized it just for them or that they wished they had the "other" products that other people got.

    I wish people knew that they could trade on fb or just swap/trade/gift with their friends or family. Or even better, donate them to a local women's shelter or non-profit organizations like Dress for Success.

    The comments sometimes feel more negative than positive for a beauty subscription for $10 and they are getting more value with what's inside the bag. I do however, love reading the positive comments and questions and reading answers from other Ipsters as they try to help newer Ipsters or those who aren't as experienced with makeup or the products.

    Thanks for the giveaway. Much appreciated your effort to do this for your readers. Oh, and my day was fabulous, how was yours? Hoping to be your first giveaway winner. Best wishes and good luck to all who entered.

    2. Mine was filled with lack of motivation, lol, woke up way too late!
      I totally understand that; I feel like some people just complain for the sake of complaining. I think we always get a great value with the bags and anyway, 10$ is nothing compared to what most people spend in a day just on basic everyday things like drinks, food, and whatever else. I always just save the stuff I don't want to either giveaway or find a different use for it. I REALLY dislike comments where people trash brands before even trying a product, just because you know they are not 20$ for a product or whatever. I think the shipping comments are insane, Ipsy posts it everywhere that they ship mid-month and people are still complaining by the 5th lol. Idk, I just steer clear of the comments section during that time of the month.
      Thanks for entering and good luck!
