"What you all do with all the Ipsy bags you get?"

Recommended Posts

I have three so far! Here's what I'm doing with them all:

 

The first bag helps me keep my home makeup stash organized, as I have tons of eyeshadows and it holds the ones I reach for most frequently.

 

 

 

The July bag stays in my purse with the essentials I might need on the go--lavendar scented hand sanitizer from Ulta, two Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms, hair ties, bobby pins, mini deodorant, tweezers, hand cream, coola mineral sunscreen sample, and a rollerball perfume.

 

The third bag more is my travel makeup bag; I just use basic makeup when travelling, not so many pieces as the more creative looks I usually go for. Usually a BB cream, pressed powder, eyebrow pencil, brow gel, eyeliner, 1 color eyeshadow crayon (something relatively neutral, right now Pixi's in Peach Pave), mascara, and a tinted lip balm.

That's a great idea.  I think the July bag is a great shape to hold sunglasses too.

Well, I have been a member since Jan of this year so...

 

Jan Bag (dark blue with starry print inside): in my purse holding my mini pharmacy :P I have to carry muscle relaxers and migraine meds as well as stuff for tension headaches because I have a lot of migraines and neck/shoulder pain/tension, etc. Also I help run art events and everybody know they can come to me for Ibuprofen if they need it.

 

Feb Bag (black shiny with red inside): this pretty much perfectly matches a red patent with black trim round kind of of retro looking purse I have so I kind of just use it when I use that purse. The purse is kind of deep and I like keeping my touch up make-up and other small things from rattling around inside it by putting them in the little Ipsy bag.

 

Mar Bag (nautical print): I remember wondering what the heck I was going to do with a nautical print bag when I got this. It is not really my style, but it has turned out to be my travel jewelry bag. The print does not matter, but it is a bit padded and it is a good size for me, so it has worked out nicely.

 

Apr Bag (white with pink, pink strip inside): For a while I was using this as my travel make-up bag. I usually take an extra eye palette and a mascara and blush from my collection to use on my trips in addition to what I normally carry in my purse. Since then I have replaced it with another bag and may end up give this one to my niece because it is pink and she loves pink.

 

May Bag (blue/teal/orange chevron): This one really has not gotten much use. I may end up using it in the car to carry my extra lady products and such.

 

June Bag (leopard print and lime green): Okay, I was so not looking forward to this one. The only thing I like less than neon is cheetah print. I know a lot of people love it, but I am just not a fan. But because of the zipper and the size this has actually become my new travel make-up bag. It holds my little mineral loose eyeshadow pots perfectly and the zipper placement seems to keep things from falling out so much.

 

July Bag (pink translucent cylinder): this is perfect for my travel brushes, eyelash curler, etc.

(long time makeup talk lurker, first time poster...)

 

I've only been a subscriber since July, however, the July bag is pretty much a perfect travel case for a Clarisonic Mia...  I pop the brush off and the unit itself + it all fits in there perfectly!

Ooohh, good idea! I have the Aria, but they're roughly the same size, right? I'm going to go home and test this out. Genius!

I joined ipsy in May and have found a use for every bag so far, except Octobers.

 

May= My current makeup bag because I thought it was so adorable, I wanted to use it ALL the time

 

June= Holds my bra strap holders, garment tape and other stuff like that

 

July= I put my all my colored sharpies in it that I use for writing on my calendar in my bathroom, yup my calendar is in the bathroom, because I go in there every morning and that's the first thing I see. 

 

August= I hated the bag and gifted a couple of the items I didn't like from the ipsy bags to my sister, who absolutely LOVED it, she keeps asking me to gift her another ipsy bag.

 

October= I didn't like the quote so I tried to do some "art" on it, which turned out awful, not sure if it's even worth gifting to my sister at this point.

 

November= I am super excited for this month's bag, great for a holiday party as a small purse!

Maybe a dark fabric paint to go over it?

Now that's a great idea. I may try that. That also made me think of carrying one around with small note cards and some stamps, when I want to drop a quick note to a friend or family member.

 

As for now, I am carry the purple iPsy bag (we got it in August I think and I actually like it) in my purse as my touch-up bag. It holds a face brush, some lippes, eye pencil, eyeshadow and blotting paper.

I'm a total lurker and have been for months. So hi! wavey.gif

 

I have one bag in my backpack with advil, lotion, tissues, a file, and hand sanitizer.

 

I am using the rest of the bags that I have to make little emergency kits for family member's cars. I'll be giving them out as Christmas presents.

 

My makeup stash is pretty small since I'm just starting out so I don't have a need for all the bags yet!
