My Opinion:

I like the variety of products and believe that IPSY is getting better. The two products that I didn't really care for was the Pacifica and Pixi products. Pacifica's BB Cream had no coverage and had glitter instead [they should've just called it a highlighter]. Pixi's mascara had no WOW factor. But overall, the size of the sample products overall were pretty good.

Overall Score:
