Ipsy time! I know this post is way late but there was an issue with shipping, and so it arrived late. The theme this month was Alter Ego and the bag reflects that with one side being a matte black color and the other a metallic gold. This bag is really sturdy and well made and one of the best they’ve done as far as quality.
🍂Meet Matt(e) Hughes liquid lipstick ‘Committed’ ($17, for full size)
I was so excited to see this in the bag! I love liquid lipsticks and heard that these were some of the most comfortable to wear-and it’s true. This is a creamy formula that goes on like a Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream it takes awhile to dry, but when it does it is completely transfer proof. It also feels like you are wearing absolutely nothing…no dryness, uncomfortableness, etc. ‘Committed’ is also a really pretty pinky nude that is really similar to my own lip color.
🍂It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Mascara ($24, for full size)I love receiving mascaras! And ipsy gives out plenty! This mascara comes with many claims including a lash volume increase of 430%! It also includes many lash-enhancing ingredients like peptides, collagen, jojoba, acai, and vitamins. I’d love to test this out right away but I have a couple of mascaras already open and so keeping this closed for now, but will update!
This is a hair mask infused with Argan oil and vitamins a & e and is supposed to strengthen and revitalize your hair. After shampooing you simply leave it in for 5-10 minutes and rinse out. I’ve only used it once but it did leave my hair soft and smelling amazing.
I was really in need of a good face scrub and this pumpkin scrub served me well. It’s a gel-like consistency with gentle pumpkin enzymes, pumpkin oil, apricot grains, aloe, and vitamin A. I wish it’d smell a bit more like pumpkin pie, it has a sort of vanilla scent but it works really well at gently exfoliating the skin.
This was the item I was least excited for, I have Elf tweezers that are my holy grail, however these are up to par with them. They are sturdy and not cheap feeling at all. It grabs the hairs really well and are just overall really great tweezers.
I redeemed my Ipsy points for this highlighter by Temptu, a brand known for their airbrush makeup. This is a liquid highlighter, it has a very thin consistency and blends into the skin very seamlessly. The color is a gold/champagne color and although looks very shimmery it actually translated into the skin as a beautiful glow. No glitter here at all. Despite the swatch below, it is quite subtle and yet gives a very beautiful, glow-from-within look on the skin which is what a highlighter should look like on the face.
That is it for my ipsy bag this month, I’m overall pleased with its contents and the bag itself. It was worth the wait!
