The extra cool item this month is an eyeshadow palette from Michelle Phan’s company, em. There was a note included saying how I was one of the first people to sign up for Ipsy (I joined the second month they were in business) and they were giving this palette to their long-term subscribers. I don’t know where the cut-off was, but I’m so excited to try this!

Obviously I wanted to try out the em palette right away! Here’s a look I put together using the shadow palette and the Pacifica lipstick from this month’s Ipsy bag. I also used the Elizabeth Mott eye primer.

The shadows had a really nice color payoff. It’s definitely good quality. I also like the colors themselves. You  can do some pretty neutral looks with it or some lovely dark, smokey looks. I’m pleased to have this palette and I know I’ll be reaching for it a lot!

If you want monthly presents from your past self to your future self, Ipsy is a great option. I’m rarely disappointed and I’ve found some pretty great brands that I might not have tried otherwise. I always think it’s well worth the $10/month!
