A bright pink mailer was sitting in my mailbox this week which can only mean one thing, it is time for my Ipsy unbagging. Now that I only get two subscription services each month I have more time to actually use the products! Let’s see what goodies I got in my bag, shall we?
Show me the good stuff:
PURLISSE BEAUTY Sheet Masks
I do a sheet mask almost every day so I was excited to receive not one but TWO new masks to try out. Sheet masks keep your skin care on lock and are fun to use. An easy, mini spa day? Yes please. The products that i’ve tried from the Purlisse brand have been good so I am sure their masks won’t differ. These will be put to use very shortly.
OFRA COSMETICS Liquid Lipstick in “Ipsy Unzipped”
Ofra liquid lipsticks are some of the best on the market. They collaborated with Ipsy this month and created a limited edition shade called “Ipsy Unzipped” just for subscribers. It is a deep mauve shade that will flatter everybody. This formula is a knockout. I am getting sick of liquid lipsticks in general so I need a formula to be on point in order for me to wear it. This stays put all day long and isn’t that drying on the lips. I wore this for ten hours yesterday, only touching up once and loved how it looked the whole time!
LUXIE BEAUTY Precision Shader Onyx Brush 239
Luxie brushes are a staple of subscription services and I am not complaining one bit. This is a shader brush which is ideal for packing shadow onto the lid. I used it today and it did exactly what it needed to. Luxie brushes are known for their pink handles but they mixed it up and opted for a black one this time. More of an edgy vibe and I am diggin’ it. The brush is made up of synthetic bristles making it soft as heck and ideal for cream or powder shadows.
CHELLA Eyebrow Defining Gel
One can always use a clear eyebrow gel! This sample size features a tiny spoolie wand perfect for quick application. This gel does a great job of keeping your brows in place without feeling like you just applied glue to your face. I use it over my brows after I have filled them in but it would also work for keeping unruly hairs at bay on no makeup days. A little product goes on the brush at once so it is never overly goopy and won’t mess up your hard work. Easy and functional, love!
DIRTY LITTLE SECRET COSMETICS Eyeshadow Crayon in Fetch
I wasn’t thrilled to see this product in my bag. The more I play around with makeup the more I realize that I just don’t use eyeshadow crayons. It is easier to swipe on a shadow then apply a cream and blend a ton. This shade is a golden peach that doesn’t stand out enough on my skin tone for it to be a stand alone shadow. This is also a miss because I already own this exact product and I never even used that one! This will be going into my give away bag.
Overall I am very happy with my December Ipsy. Four products I love and only one fail. Not a bad ratio! What items did you get this month? I would love to know!
