It’s Ipsy time! Getting my glam bag brings me so much joy. I love the surprise, the opportunity to try new products and that it is a mini gift to myself each month! The March bag is black and white in which Ipsy provided two markers so you could color it yourself! Kind of a cool idea.
CONTOUR COSMETICS Lip Kit Pencil in Juju
My collection is seriously lacking in the lip liner department. Therefore this product came at a perfect time. The shade is a nude-y peach that is almost the same as my lips but better. I can wear this under any lipstick to achieve a more defined look. This item is very creamy making it lovely to apply but I have an inkling it will be used up rather quickly. I am wearing it today under a nude lipstick and it hasn’t budged at all. This will be an everyday staple!
FAITH IN FACE I Want Perfect Makeup Sheet Masks
One can always use more face masks. I do them so often (a couple of times a week, at least) that getting them in subscription services is the best case scenario. I have not tried this brand before and cannot read the directions due to the fact that they are in Korean. K beauty is typically amazing though so I am excited. From the looks of it, this mask is marketed as a primer for makeup. Certainly an interesting idea to do a mask right before applying your base products. I will most likely use another primer in conjunction with this product but still looking forward to trying it out. Plus we get TWO, score & score!
CITY COLOR COSMETICS Glow Duo
This product lays somewhere in middle for me, not exactly a hit but not a miss either. Mainly because this item perplexes me. It is a highlighter duo with one side being a cream and the other being a powder. The cream side is a beautiful champagne shade which adds a sheen to the face. The powder is a shimmery bronze shade. The two shades don’t make sense together. I would think the idea would be to layer them, the cream under the powder for the most intense highlight, but then shouldn’t they be near the same color? I wore the cream side and liked it for a subtle glimmer to the skin but it’s nothing to write home about. I used the powder side as an all over bronzer but it would work as an eyeshadow as well. It looks pretty on the skin, just not as they were aiming for. Probably won’t reach for this item much due to the effort it takes to make it work.
DOUCCE Freematic Eyeshadow in Ariana
I have gotten Doucce eyeshadows before and they work just fine! Pigmented, buttery soft and easy enough to blend out. The reason this product is a miss is my collection just doesn’t need another brown shadow. Especially a single one, palettes are just so much easier! I think this product would be better off finding a new home.
TARTE COSMETICS Sex Kitten Eyeliner
Another dang black pencil eye liner. I do not need one nor do I want one. One more time for the cheap seats in the back: DOWN WITH BLACK EYE LINERS! Plus, this sample is teeny tiny. A total miss for me!
Overall, this turned out to be a slightly anticlimactic un-bagging. Two products that I won’t even use? Lame! No big deal though I’m sure next month will be better! What products did you get in your bag? Successful bag or a total dud? I love comparing so let me down below!
