I was actually thinking about stopping my subscription to Ipsy just to try out other beauty subscriptions, but I’m so glad I didn’t! This is one of the better bags I’ve received in awhile! The actual bag is dark blue with gold stars and constellations. The bag is made of a cheaper, lighter feeling material but I’d rather have a cheaper bag (or no bag at all) and better quality products.
🌜Ciate London Liquid Velvet ‘Diva’ ($19, for full size)
This liquid lipstick is described as a long-wearing, ultra-vibrant lipstick with Hyaluronic Acid and lip conditioning ingredients. The formula is a very thin, slightly mousse-y texture but is very lightweight. I really like the applicator as it makes it very easy to outline the lips and Cupid’s bow. Diva is described as a true red and is slightly transferrable but didn’t show any signs of wearing off and only in the inner part of my lips after eating. This liquid lipstick reminds me of the new Smashbox ones and like it is one of the most comfortable matte liquid lipsticks I’ve tried.
🌜Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum ($41, for full size)
This can be used as a daily moisturizer serum or a makeup primer and includes honey, silk amino acids, sea buckthorn oil, and Vitamin E. The texture of this serum is light yet moisturizing and made my foundation look a lot smoother.
🌜Benefit Porefessional Primer ($31, for full size)
This is a much loved product in the beauty world. It is described as a silky, lightweight balm that can be worn under or over makeup. It has that silicone feel much like the MUFE primer and I just really don’t like that texture for primers. I do have bigger pores in my t-zone area so I will probably be using this just in those areas.
🌜Eyeoko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner ($18, for full size)
This is my favorite form of eyeliner! They’re easier to apply and usually longer lasting. The felt tip on this one is soft on the lids, and was very easy and quick to apply. It also easily created a thin line and once dried, doesn’t come off easily. This one, along with the Jesse’s Girl eyeliner pen are the best ones I’ve tried so far!
🌜The Balm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara ($18, for full size)
This is a newer mascara and features a curved wand and promises intense volume. I haven’t used it yet but I love getting mascara from Ipsy they also typically send the new mascaras that come out and I actually like the deluxe sizes.
