I’m on a mission to reclaim my glam side. Anyone who knows me knows I’m not a typical “girly-girl” when it comes to beauty and fashion. I own a lot of make-up (so I’ve come to realize), but have always been more of a collector than an active make-up wearing chick. A few weeks ago, a friend, who happens to be a Mary Kay consultant, stopped by my work and my co-workers, coaxed me in to trying some samples, which lead to me purchasing a light coverage foundation and a couple of other things. It’s like a light bulb went off and I’m finding myself excited (gasp!) to test new products and colors.
I’ve been a member of the ipsy Army since May of this year and I’ve loved getting the cute bags each month, filled with beauty products ranging from cleansers to pencils, from nail polish to lipstick. In the event you’re not “in the know”, ipsy is a monthly beauty box (bag, in this case) subscription service. Each month, for $10, you receive an actual reusable make-up bag filled with 4 or 5 beauty product samples. More often than not, the samples sizes are deluxe-sized and even full-sized at times! Since becoming a member, I might have used a product or two but, mainly, allowed the other samples to become part of my growing collection. With the inception of Kendra Relaunched, I’m beyond excited to incorporate a beauty component that will highlight my monthly ipsy Glam Bags and, eventually, photos of myself testing each product. I’ll be back soon with some photos of me testing the products and a more in-depth review of each product. I have 5 months worth of samples to explore!
