This month’s Ipsy wants to get us summer-ready and with products like primer, waterproof eyeliner, and lip stains I think we are ready for this season. There’s a couple of new brands featured this month which is always exciting. The bag itself feels like it’s waterproof, perfect to take on vacation and so…onto the bag!
Print on the bag
☀️Trestique Shadow Crayon mini ($26, for full size – ‘Venetian Gold’)
This is a new product from Trestique, an eyeshadow crayon that claims 12-hr wear and according to the website, is not even available yet. It’s a twist up formula that is very soft and pigmented. Unlike the Nyx Jumbo Eyeshadow pencils which are pretty rough on the lids to apply, this one glides on easily and quickly becomes like a powder.
☀️Jcat Beauty Liptude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain ($5.99 – ‘Blow Your Mind’)
This is a liquid lipstick that is very pigmented, and applies smoothly with its doe foot applicator. It has the exact same minty smell as their Wonder Lip Paints. After application it didn’t dry to a complete matte finish, it still felt soft and hydrating. After a couple of hrs, I wiped it off and was left with a very bright stain. There are many colors on the website and I think this would be great for people who don’t like those extremely drying liquid lipsticks!
☀️Aurora Eyeliner Pen ($7.99 – ‘Blackberry’)
This is a calligraphy form liquid eyeliner – my favorite type – because it makes it so easy to apply your eyeliner and wing it out to perfection! This claims to be waterproof and smudgeproof, and with my experience with these types of liners, they really are. When I did a swatch test and rubbed, it didn’t budge at all and so this should turn out to be an awesome liner.
☀️Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer ($36, for full size)
The Smashbox range of face primers comes with many types all for different purposes such as hydrating, color adjusting, luminzing, etc. We received the basic one, perfect for a flawless canvas. It has a silicone feel to it, and although I’ve never tried this particular one I have their green color-adjusting primer and it works pretty well as far as giving a smooth canvas for your foundation.
☀️BioRepublic sheet face masks ($4.99 each)
The last item I received were three sheet masks all different types. I received a Green tea purifying mask, Aloe revitalizing mask, and a Cucumber soothing mask. They are all for ‘all skin types’ and it’s really great that we received three, since it’s a one time use item. I love skincare, and so these will be fun to try out.
