I subscribed to the monthly service and just got my first bag today, and I absolutely love it. The products inside are very good quality, and the makeup bag it all comes in is great as well. None of it feels cheap, like cardboard wrapped tiny vials or anything (what one usually expects of the idea of samples). They are deluxe size samples (as well as a couple full size) in the same packaging as one would find of a regular size in a store, and I am very pleased with that. I would highly recommend ipsy because it is well worth the $10 a month and besides, who doesn't like getting beauty items in the mail? I really like the idea of a new different makeup bag every month.
I'm wearing this now and while it is a beautiful pale lemon color with silver sparkle (which is not noticeable really), it took four coats to get opaque coverage and hide the fact that it is streaky. All in all, I still like it and think it is really pretty. If one goes in knowing what it takes to make this product work then there is no disappointment with it. Would recommend.

I received a 2.5 oz size in my ipsy bag, and I can without a doubt say that I would absolutely purchase a full size after this once is gone. It smells sooo good, a sharp zesty orange that is not at all cloying. It is really great. The product itself moisturizes nicely too. I use mine as hand cream. It absorbs without being greasy and leaves no greasiness or stickiness behind. I love it. The packaging is quite elegant as well. Superb product!
This is a fantastic product! I got the vanilla and macadamia one and it is soooo creamy and the scent is gentle, pure and heavenly, not sweet and cloying. The product has no taste or color, just smoothness and shine. Not sticky in any way. Extremely moisturizing. Also makes a wonderful cuticle cream! Multipurpose item, very very nice! Most definitely will be getting more. Eager to try the other scents.
The most gorgeous beige lavender shimmer that looks like its got specks of nutmeg in! It is barely visible, but it's there. Once on, the polish has a silver sheen. Applies nicely and one coat is sheer and two coats is perfect. A third would probably be great too. It truly is a polish you can wear any way you want. This is one of the most beautiful OPIs in my opinion, I just got it and am thrilled. So very pretty.
A bright but not light red pink raspberry color. Opaque creme. Love the name! My husband said it was "drop bear dark pink" LOL look up "drop bear" I LOVE KOALAS, my first stuffed animal was just that. Another winner from OPI. Looks different in different lighting. In daylight it's a vivid pink red and in fluorescent it's a light red. Same effect I find as another OPI -My Throne for a Cranberry Scone (British collection). Sometimes dark pink sometimes red. I love colors like that. I highly recommend Koala-Beary, it's a great color!
The scent is a deep raspberry, but it's not too sweet, and the product itself (the wax) is a dark raspberry sorbet color. Just lovely. The product leaves no color on lips it just makes them soft and smooth. The taste isn't too bad either. Nice item.
Have used this on and off for many years. Just bought a new bottle tonight, and the label says "Olay Complete-all day moisturizer with sunscreen BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15, sensitive." Very nice. Inexpensive too.

Love this product, it's basically just oil and Vaseline mixed. It's perfect for my hair, I just use any shampoo to wash then apply this to towel dried hair. Don't need a bottle conditioner. So nice and lasts forever and is inexpensive. Will keep buying. I quite like the scent and it does fade once applied.

This product is great! I love it. Makes hair smooth, scent is nice and one doesn't feel the need to wash hands after applying! I wear a long ponytail everyday and this product keeps everything lovely. Would buy again and highly recommend it.
Lotions/ Creams -Gold Bond - Ultimate Softening Skin Therapy Lotion Shea Butter

I have the cream in the tube and it is most definitely an HG cream. Whatever you put it on stays so soft and moisturized. It's a cushiony feeling product really. I love it. Sinks right in and is not greasy and the scent is soft. Wonderful product. Will buy more, much much more! :-)
Lotions/ Creams -eos - revitalizing care hand and body lotion in nourish

I got a coupon for a free full size bottle directly from EOS so for me, this lotion was very inexpensive! The bottle is good and the pump locks easily. The lotion itself is a thin watery consistency, and it smells very much like men's cologne. It is soft and moisturizing on skin, it sinks right in and does not feel greasy. It's an interesting product.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Wild Shine Clear Nail Protector

This is my favorite clear nail polish. Two coats and your nails shine like glass, just brilliant. Wears well, dries fairly quick like all clear polish, very inexpensive. I love it.
The gorgeous blue of the Tiffany box. WOW! A salute to Breakfast at Tiffany's & Audrey Hepburn, can't get much better! Very fancy :-)
Warm sandy bronze nude frost color. Looks different depending on how many coats you apply.
