Alright, I’ve gotta admit it. As much as I talk about being a traveler who prides herself in carrying her life in a carry-on rucksack, I do love to put makeup on and dress up for evenings out.
Balancing that inner girly-girl with the more prominent dirty hippie is certainly a challenge, especially when that girly-girl wants to carry an entire bag dedicated to makeup.
Recently I was sent an ipsy glam bag, and that’s solved my problems!
ipsy is a beauty subscription service that sends you a small pouch full of beauty-related samples every month for just $10 a month! It’s not too expensive, so your travel funds won’t be used up!
The bag is sent in a pink little package. 10/10 getting that inner girly girl excited.
For the month of September, I was sent a bellapierre cosmetics mineral blush, a full sized CROWN blush brush, a small Tarte Tarteist mascara, a sample sized Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair! deep conditioning mask, and a Sweet Lips lip balm.
I love sample sized products for traveling because of the efficiency. Some products you can use once (like the deep conditioning mask) and toss out, and others you can reuse for ages! Their small size is great for travel.
Better yet, ipsy sends their products in small little pouches. As you guys know, I love pouches for packing. I’d probably toss a lipstick and concealer into the pouch and pop it straight into my rucksack.
Without having to compromise style for space, I’m free to be either dirty hippie or girly girl whenever I’d like!
