On this fine Saturday, I bring y’all a late Ipsy Ultimate Unboxing for the month of November!
Is it worth $50?
Let’s find out!
This month we got a large travel makeup bag. I think this bag is very cute and will definitely be using it. It is roomy and well made. Perfect for the trip I have coming up next week!
Soo AE Panda Eye Brightening Masks
This is a mask I have tried before. I did enjoy it, and the cuteness adds a nice touch to your pamper session. However, you can get them at Walmart 2/$5. Not exactly something I want in my $50 box. But, I’m not disappointed about having them again.
Beau Gachis Concealer Brush
This is a nice, basic concealer brush. You could also use it to pack shadows on your lid. It seems to be made well and none of the hairs were shedding. This isn’t my preferred way to blend or apply concealer, but I have been enjoying it for eyeshadows.
It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser
This is a cleanser I have been wanting to try, so I was happy to see it included. Hopefully, their “skin-transforming” claim holds up! I could definitely use some skin transformation during these cold months.
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum
I know this serum is, or is almost the price of the box. This isn’t a product I will be using for myself. However, I was able to gift my mom nice skin care- and she is loving this serum! That’s worth it enough for me.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
I will never be mad about receiving dry shampoo, lord knows I need it. I have already used this one. It works well, doesn’t make my scalp itch, and doesn’t have an over whelming scent.
Youth to People Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream
I haven’t had to chance to try much from Youth to the People. This little sample may be a good way to dip my toes in the water.
Smith and Cult Nail Polish “Bite your Kiss”
This polish is a really pretty, dark, wine red color. This is usually my nail polish color of choice, so that worked out well!
Context Matte Lipstick “Sweet Emotion”
This is a brand I have never heard of. It’s fun to get to try a new to me brand.
The shade is a really pretty burnt red shade. I think it is perfect for this time of year. The formula isn’t too drying, and there is no scent that I can detect.
Billion Dollar Brows Best Seller Kit
This is really neat. In this get we got a brow highlighting pencil, a brow pencil, a brow brush, and a brow gel.
I have really been enjoying using these brow products. The shade matches well, and the gel has great hold!
Benefit Cosmetics High Beam
Fun fact, I have never tried High Beam before. Benefit has never been a brand I was super into. They aren’t cruelty free, so I never felt to inclined to try either.
The shade is a light pink. It didn’t really highlight my face like other liquid highlights do, which I think is intended. I have a feeling my little sister would love this, so I am going to pass it on to her. Again, I’m glad I will at least be able to give someone else the product, makes it not a total dud for me.
Gi Gi Gorgeous The only Blush Duo “Authentic and Pride”
I am so excited about this! I love GiGi!! I am guessing she has come out with her own line, and now I want everything! This blush does say it is cruelty free and vegan.
You get a more peachy shade that is matte, and a pinky shade with some glitter. I don’t go for pinks much, but when both shades are mixed, it shows up stunning on the cheeks!
Wander Beauty Wandress Rush Palette
We have a six pan palette from Wander beauty, subscription services favorite brand. There are 4 cream metallics, and two shimmers. I have gotten a palette from them in this formula and layout, just different shades, but I can’t find it. Anywhere.
I think this is a great little palette for the Holidays! The creams are beautiful and don’t crease on my lids. The two shades that look matte in the pictures, aren’t. Which is unfortunate. However, I was able to make them work. I can see myself reaching for the shades Blitz and Avenue a lot.
Full face of the products
Here is a hideous picture of me. Fun fact, I was broken up with, over the phone, after two years, While I had this makeup on. The shadows lasted through a few tears. Good going Wander Beauty.
Over all thoughts?
I liked this box! I got a lot I’ll use and love, but I was also able to give my mom something she is really enjoying, and I will get to give my little sister a clue classic piece of makeup.
I think Ipsy Ultimate will be sticking around for a while.
What was in your Ipsy, of any level, this month?
