Finally back to reviewing my monthly beauty subscriptions. Life sometimes just takes you in a different route, ya know? Happy to have received July’s Ipsy glambag and thought this was the perfect month to jump back in!
FIRMA BEAUTY 204 Wide Blender
I always love getting brushes. This is the first full size item of the bag! Tools of any kind get used often. Receiving this brush feels like getting the most bang for my buck This is a thicker shader brush with synthetic bristles. Meaning, it is very soft and meant for packing color on the lid. I used this today and it worked great. Also, the more brushes I have the less often I have to wash them. Lazy girl win!
MÍDFLOWER Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask
Sheet masks are great for getting a dose of skincare FAST. Hyaluronic acid also happens to be one of my favorite skincare ingredients. It does an incredible job of hydrating the skin. My dry skin needs all the moisturizing it can get, so these masks are a total hit for me. Plus, we get two in the bag!
PACIFICA BEAUTY Bronzer Blush Duo
This product seems to be full sized and the packaging is so pretty! When I first applied this I was a bit bummed, it is not very pigmented. However, after working with it more I now appreciate that it needs to be built up, ensuring I don’t overdo it. The bronzer shade is matte and gives a natural bronzed appearance to the skin. The dusty rose blush is shimmery and creates a glowy flush. Both went on very smoothly and looked great throughout the day. Being on the more natural side made me enjoy this more than I initially thought. How perfect for travel would this be too?!
CIATÉ LONDON Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer
I am OBSESSED with primer, like seriously obsessed. I never do my makeup without it. I even double prime to match my skin needs the best! The gel consistency of this primer hydrates the skin, smells amazing (like watermelon, perfect for waking you up in the morning) and has tiny beads that dissolve when you work it into the skin. What these tiny beads actually do is beyond me. This primer does not fully dry down, leaving the skin a bit tacky which really grips onto your makeup. I thoroughly enjoyed using this primer and could see myself picking this up in the full size.
THEBALM COSMETICS Eyeshadow in He Said, She Said
Single eyeshadows kind of annoy me, especially sample size ones. Is it just me? I feel like they get lost in my collection too easily. For the person who doesn’t hoard makeup as much as I do, this would be a great product to receive, i’m sure. This shimmery lavender shade is quite pretty, and would look great with those of you with green eyes. I do enjoy The Balm’s packaging as well, I just think somebody else will get more use out of this.
Overall, I am pleased with this month’s bag. Four products (five if you include BOTH sheet masks) that will be certainly used up, all for ten dollars. Nothing wrong with that! What products did you get? Let me know down below!
