Thinking About Trying Ipsy? Read This First

My favorite baby picture of me captures the time I grabbed my mom's Estée Lauder lipstick and smeared it all over my face. I definitely wasn't destined to become a famous makeup artist, but from that day on, I have loved makeup and playing with it.

And I do mean playing, cause I'm sooo bad at it. I keep it simple day-to-day, but for any events or special occasions, I'm forced to get my makeup done professionally. Although I'm not the best at putting it on my face, I still adore learning about makeup. I'm addicted to all the makeup youtube videos! Nearly every day, I binge on new product reviews, a get-ready-with-me, or a drugstore vs. high-end product video.

Everyone has their thing - this is mine. I just wish I could get my hands on these products. When I see the gorgeous makeup these beauty gurus use, I know I'll never be able to afford it all. And when I try to choose one to purchase, I get so overwhelmed, and I end up buying nothing at all.

Through my makeup obsession, I found a lot of my favorite gurus used IPSY. It seemed like everything I ever wanted. Every month, they send you beauty products they know will suit you - a beauty subscription box like no other.

But how do they know what I like and what to send me? You simply take an in-depth, fun quiz before subscribing to IPSY.

The IPSY Glam Bag comes with 5 deluxe sample beauty products in a unique, gorgeous bag every month for only $12? What a steal. The minute I ordered it, I couldn't wait to see what IPSY would send - was their quiz thorough enough to send products I actually liked?

Once my Glam Bag arrived, I couldn't wait to open it to see what I got. I was so excited because they're not products I'd have bought myself - exactly what I was looking for! I'm bored with the basic products I use daily. I want distinctive beauty products that'll inspire me to experiment with fresh looks.

The colorful Ittsē Cosmetic eyeshadows, Araceli Beauty liquid eyeliner, Morphe Lipsticks, and Ciatē London illuminating blush are perfect for testing different makeup techniques. After all that makeup, the H2O+ Oasis Ultra Hydrating Cream will be a real treat for my skin. So IPSY's quiz really works!

I was so happy with all the products in my IPSY Glam Bag. I did a little haul vlog and sent it to my friends. They got a good "lol" out of it.

After watching a few videos that included IPSY's products, and then trying them out, I can't stop using them! Each day I added one in, learned how to use it, and how to make it look best on me. So much fun. And before I knew it, my next IPSY bag arrived with 5 more deluxe samples to try, amazing!

IPSY not only made me a huge beauty lover but one who gets to sample all these awesome products to create professional looks. The best part about my IPSY addiction is that I'm that good at doing my own makeup, I now do my own makeup for any special occasion.

If you love playing with makeup, but get lost in the sea of products, check out IPSY. Think of all the products you get to sample for only $12 a month!!!

It's a beauty lover's dream come true.
