Since I’ve taken an interest in the beauty industry, I am always eager to try out new products. However, there is usually a trial and error process when you’re trying to find a product that you love and works for you. In the beginning of 2017, I signed up for ipsy to receive 5 beauty sample every month and honestly, why didn’t I sign up years ago? For only $10 a month, ipsy will send you a glam bag filled with 5 beauty samples whether it’s skin care, cosmetics or beauty tools. When you first sign up, you’re asked to take a beauty quiz so that your monthly glam bags are customized for you.
This month, my glam bag was pure perfection. I always know immediately when I see a metallic fuschia packaged envelope in my mailbox that my glam bag has been delivered. For the month of March, I received the Affinitic Snail Cream by Ladykin, Eyebrow Highlighter Pencil in Ivory by Chella, Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa by Doucce, tartiest quick dry matte lip paint by tarte cosmetics and my favorite product in my glam bag, the Luxe Pro Blending Brush by Skone Cosmetics. I loved this glam bag mainly because these were products that I’ve heard of before, but never got the chance to buy.
I would definitely recommend ipsy, especially if you’re still trying to find what beauty products you like and don’t like. It’s super easy to sign up and it is definitely budget friendly. There are also many other perks to your membership with ipsy like earning points towards bonus products and tutorials of the products in your glam bag. You can check it out for yourself on ipsy.com.
Fun Fact: I am a Selena Super Fan! For as long as I can remember, I was always doing the Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, wearing ‘busti-cacas‘ around the house and demanded to have my bangs blown out voluminously, just like Selena. I even wrote a paper on her life and death in college and received an A for it! I literally take the quote “Anything for Selenas” to a whole other level. When I was younger, I never realized the impact Selena had on our society or to the Hispanic community. As I got older, I grew more and more passionate about Selena and the beautiful human she was. She has opened so many doors for Hispanics and helped corporate America look at our demographic in a different light.
In October 2016, MAC Cosmetics released the Selena for MAC Collection and it was the first collection ever to be restocked by the company. From lipsticks to eyeshadows, the collection immediately sold out online and in stores. Each product is named after one of her hit songs, such as ‘Como La Flor’ Lipstick and ‘Missing My Baby’ Eyeshadow. All five eyeshadows are easy to blend and the lipsticks are pigmented and each come in a different finish. I was highly satisfied with the collection and I think it’s safe to say Selena fans near and far feel the same. ¡Viva Selena!
