Who has the time to go visit the makeup counter? Most of us just grab what we know and use it until it is gone. For those moms out there who would like a little look-rejuvenation, Youtube makeup sensation Michelle Phan has jumped into the box service business with Ipsy.
Every month a personalized box arrives with a handful of beauty products to try. Phan's group customizes the glam bags by using your answers to Ipsy beauty quiz, your product feedback and activity on the Ipsy site. For those of you who aren't quite so skilled in the makeup mirror, Phan also provides videos showing you HOW to use products. Thanks, girl!
