My First Ipsy Bag, Girl Meets Glitter!!!

I did it, I finally did it. Do you know what this blurry picture is of? 


Yep, I subscribed to the Ipsy bag. I was so excited that this was the only picture I took before I ripped that sucker open. 

A few of my friends including my sister have recently subscribed.  The bag they sent out last month was all over my Facebook feed. 

That sparked my interest and I had to look into it.

After my friends testimonials and reading through the website, I seriously could not resist. It is $10 a month and you get a makeup bag plus 5 specially picked for you goodies. Each bag contains a mix of deluxe size goodies and full size products.

I was skeptical at first, since I had worked behind a counter for many years and handed deluxe samples and cute cosmetics bags to my customers I did not want to pay $10 for samples. However the full size product easy cover your cost. The deluxe samples and the bag are just a bonus.

My first Ipsy bag came, the November bag. Each month has a theme and this month was Girl Meets Glitter.  I was more than impressed when I opened the HOT PINK bubble wrap envelope. A silver sparkly, like crushed diamonds bag with a hot pink zipper was hidden inside. Then I opened the cosmetics bag.



Here is what was inside.
