For this months Ipsy I decided to do more of a review, rather than just an un-bagging. At the end of the post I will include a look that I did with the products I got! I may just continue to do Ipsy this way, we will see!
The theme for this month is “Black Magic”, and as usual I am going to start by reviewing the bag itself. Holy crap this is my favorite bag ever! Look how cute it is! I have already put it in my purse to carry my “take along” makeup. The bag is made of good quality material and the little zipper is a ghost. It is perfect!
This month my bag contained a pretty good variety of things.
The first thing I pulled out was the Pur-lisse Daily Lip Nourisher W/ Mango and Shea Butter. I used it to prep my lips this morning and it did a great job! I really enjoy mango, so the smell is really nice. I will still purchase the Glossier Balm Dot Com over this, but I will still use this up.
The second thing I pulled out I have yet to have a chance to try, but I am really excited to use it! Adesse Organic Infused Nail Lacquer “Grand Central”
I reminds me of an oil slick, I think it is going to be perfect for Halloween! The formula does seem thin, so we will have to see how it works out. I am hoping it is as great as I am thinking it will be.
The next product I was really excited to pull out of the bag. I have wanted The Balm Hot Mama! blush for a while, but never purchased it because I wasn’t sure how it would look on my fair skin.
Spoiler alert, it is beautiful! I also think it is going to look amazing as an eye shadow, I will have to update y’all on that one. I think I am going to wait to purchase the full-size still until I use up some of the blushes I already own. I do love the quality and shade though!
I was a little apprehensive when I pulled out the Ciate London Fierce Flicks liner, but it wasn’t a total fail. It is very black and dries down very matte. It does not budge, at all. But, I am not the biggest fan of felt tip liners, and this one doesn’t have quite a percise enough tip to make the perfect “fierce flick”. But, the little mistakes are an easy fix with a q-tip and makeup remover, and I am willing to have to take the extra step for an eye liner that wears this well.
The last item I got in this months bag was the Tresitque Mini Matte Lip Crayon “Florence Fig”. I have gotten a highlighter from this brand before and loved it, so I was pretty excited to try out a lip stick from them.
I love this shade! I think it is going to be great for fall and winter when I don’t want to do a full on deep berry lip. It is a comfortable formula and long wearing. I have worn it with and with out a lip liner under it, it wears a decent amount of time alone, but when layered on top of a liner it is extremely long wearing.
Other Products Used:
- Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
- Kat Von D Shade and Light eye palette
- Pacifica Dream Big mascara
- Hourglass Mood Light Primer (Sample)
- Too Faced Born This Way Foundation and Concealer
- Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer
- Urban Decay “Booty Call” shadow as a face highlight
Over all I am happy with this bag. It isn’t the best Ipsy bag I have ever gotten as a whole, but I am still really happy with it!
