Ipsy is a monthly, beauty, subscription service. You get about 5 deluxe sample or full-size products to try out. It is a great way to learn about and experiment with different brands and types of products for only $10 a month!
“Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes” Acure Organics These are alright. I’m not really blown away by them. The wipes are a great size! Huge compared to the Proactive ones I’ve been using for a while! I wouldn’t mind if they were a bit more saturated. The smell is kind of strange. It’s one of those “unscented” dusty kind of smells. They didn’t do a great job at taking off eye makeup. They also burned my eyes and the eye area.
Evelyn Iona Cosmetics “Cream Blush” in Ash This is a very pretty color: a pinky peach, and it has a pretty decent formula. The sample sized pot is pretty small. I had a tough time fitting my E.L.F Small Stippling Brush in it. But other than that I like it!
Crown Brush “Oval Concealer Brush” I’m not a fan of using brushes for my face makeup. I prefer sponges. I did give this one a go. It was okay. It took a long time to blend the outer edges of concealer because it is so small. I will probably just use it as an eyeshadow brush from now on. When I first used it, the brush had a LOT of bristles fall out! I was pretty shocked. I gave it a good wash and pulled out a lot more. Finally, it stopped shedding and I was able to let it dry. I haven’t had any more fall out yet.
J. Cat Beauty “#MOTD Waterproof Slide on Pencil for Eyes” in Bronze, I am really mixed about this pencil. The packaging makes you think that it is going to be a pretty, shimmery, copper/ bronze color. It’s more or of a regular brown with a slight hint of shimmer to it. It is creamy and blendable. It does not stick to my waterline, but it works fine on my lash line.
NYX Cosmetics “Ipsy Eye Shadow Trio” This is a very pretty looking, basic palette created just for Ipsy. This would be great to create a light, smoky eye look. The shadows are not as pigmented as they look. The black came out gray and the two shimmer colors hardly show up at all. On the website, they say you can use the shadows wet or dry. I wet the lightest shade to make the shimmer more intense. It hardly made a difference.
Overall I am not very impressed with this month’s bag. Normally I really like what I get, but his time was a miss. Better luck next month I hope!
