I received my Ipsy bag SO late this month, much later than ever before. I thought it was due to the fact that I redeemed points for a product, but I didn’t even end up receiving it! I contacted Ipsy customer service (who are seriously the sweetest) and they are currently rush delivering my point reward to me. ANYHOW, my Ipsy is finally here and I can’t wait to see what I got this month!
Show me the goods:
TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Masks in “Green Tea” and “Lotus”
Do I even have to say it again? I always LOVE receiving sheet masks. They are by far my favorite type of skin care products. First off, I get two separate sheets which is phenomenal! Second, they are by the brand Tony Moly which I already know that I adore. Their face masks have always pleased my greatly and are relatively affordable. Plus they get all the gold stars for their packaging. TOTAL hit!
OFRA Cosmetics “Gold Rush” Eyeshadow
Eyeshadow is always a fun item to gather from subscription services. This shade is a very wearable golden bronze which I can see myself rocking a ton. It has a beautiful metallic sheen to it which would make for the perfect pop on the lid. I have not been disappointed by anything that I have received from the Ofra brand and am happy that these services keep sending me their products. This is a pan and will find a happy home in my magnetic palette.
COUGAR Beauty Products 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick in “Mulberry”
Getting a liquid lipstick in my subscription services each month has become standard. I am not sick of them yet. What I am sick of though is receiving colors that either are all the same or not fitting for the current season. This is a deep mauve, berry shade which applies even darker on my lips! I have about ten other liquid lipsticks in this same color palette. While I do enjoy the shade and am not too upset, I would just like these subscriptions to send out something new and unexpected. I have only worn this product once so far because the color is too dark for the dog days of summer. This stuff sets on the lips SO fast, which is awesome. You have to be on the ball with application but the dry down time prevents smudging. I hope to get a lot of use out of this in the fall and winter.
Ciaté London Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner in Black
Truthfully this is not a bad product. It applies smoothly and opaque which is the majority of what I look for in an eyeliner. I have not tried anything from this brand in the past so I am excited that the first item I received is a good one! One side features a typical pencil and the other has an angled brush which is to be used to smudge the eyeliner for a smokier look. This is a miss because I do not need anymore black eyeliner and I do not smoke out my eyeliner at all. I will probably get use out of this because black eyeliners are always good to have on hand. I am just not overly excited about this product, making it a miss for me.
Beaute Basics Travel Face Blender in Light Pink
Man oh man, I was SO excited for this item at first. I have received a black face blender from this brand and was totally enthralled with it. This sponge is quite a bit smaller than that one was however. Perhaps the size has something to do with the quality but this is NOT as good and has no bounce ability. This thing hurts when you put it on the face. It feels as if I am punching myself which is not fun. It doesn’t change in size or texture when you saturate it with water, which is the whole point of these sponges. I adore applying my base makeup with a beauty sponge but this will not be the one. I could perhaps use it to apply powder instead of cream products but I most likely won’t even bother.
The month’s Ipsy bag was just okay for me. Not horrible but not mind-blowing. I still adore Ipsy and liking three out of five products is fine with me. What did you get in your bag this month? I would love to know, give me all the deets down below in the comment section!
