This month’s bag is themed Destination Beauty and features famous sightseeing spots around the world. Like last month there was 3 different colors you could receive.
▫️Smashbox X-Rated Mascara ($22, for full size)
This is why I still love receiving Ipsy bags…endless deluxe-sized mascaras! I believe this is a newer mascara and the brush is quite unique in that it has “..three deep channels for megacoating lashes and three rows of bristles that isolate, amplify, and extend each lash”. After curling my lashes, this mascara really volumized and lengthened my lashes, while not getting clumpy. It lasted about 8-10 hrs. before beginning to flake a bit. This is actually starting to become one of my favorite mascaras!
▫️Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvinator ($33, for full size)
This is a microdermabrasion-like face exfoliator that has a long list of benefits as well as claiming instant results. This does feel like other microdermabrasion scrubs I’ve tried, very small beads that gently exfoliate the skin. This however didn’t give instant results, but over time I’m sure this product will show results. It is very gentle and almost scent-free.
▫️Vera Mona Eye Smudger Brush ($9.99?)
This Vera Mona brush is very beautiful black and purple brush with thin bristles perfect for smudging eye liner or applying eyeshadow to the lower lash line. It is also vegan and cruelty-free. On the website it looks like they only sell this in a dual-ended combination so I’m not sure if this is an Ipsy exclusive.
▫️Bellapierre Cosmetics Gel Lipliner ‘Nude’
This is a gel lip liner in Nude, described as a rosy nude. It’s the perfect shade to go with many lipstick shades from nudes to rosy pink and reds, and has a very creamy formula. The swatch was even a little difficult to remove!
▫️Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow Trio ‘Skinny Dip•Crush•Lovely’
I was not at all excited to see Pacifica eyeshadows in my bag. I received another Pacifica eyeshadow trio before and it had no pigmentation to it at all. I haven’t swatched this one yet-so I don’t know how this trio will perform. Although the packaging is beautiful and the colors are nice I’m going to pass this along to a friend!
