For this January, Ipsy’s theme is Game Face, I totally enjoyed watching their video which had a very strong message about crushing dreams and that we’ve got everything within to achieve those BIG DREAMS. This is my first Ipsy glam bag and obviously I had very high hopes, so when I opened the bag and saw my favorite product inside the first thing I did way take some beautiful pictures. It actually turned out to be a great edit with a nice balanced makeup menu with a pretty designed makeup bag to match the theme.

What is Ipsy? Ipsy is a monthly subscription box that contains beauty and makeup products. Each month you will be getting full-size or sample-sized products inside a makeup bag. For me this is a great way to try new beauty products.

Price: $10 per month.
