The bag this month is a really pretty, classy-looking makeup bag, definitely smaller than last month’s however. Unfortunately this isn’t the most positive Ipsy review…I’ve been getting great stuff lately, but this month fell a little flat for me.
💋NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé Plush ($6)
This is a lip and cheek color in a nude pink color. The formula is a light, whipped formula that I don’t care too much for but what I really don’t like is the color. It’s a very cool-toned light pink that just doesn’t look good on my skin tone. Ipsy was also sending these out in a nude-brown color that would’ve been perfect for me. I really wish when it comes to lip products/concealers that they would let us pick the color that way we can actually use and enjoy the products. As a blush, it blends easily and is thin, but needs to be built up. Would I Repurchase? No, even if I did like the color, I don’t like the thin, slippery consistency this formula has.
💋Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash with White Willow Bark ($30, for full size)
Formulated with the purest Icelandic glacial waters and beneficial botanicals, this mild cleanser detoxifies and purifies without stripping skin of its natural moisture. This cleanser has a very pure, clean scent and foams easily so a little goes a long way. It left a very clean feeling without drying out my skin at all. Repurchase? Maybe, I love skincare and the full size of this would last a long time, I have to continue using this product to really see what it does for my skin.
💋Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara ($22, for full size)
The creamy buildable formula is clump-resistant, flake proof, smudge proof, and resistant to sweat and humidity. I haven’t tried this mascara yet but I loved the last mascara from Doucce I received (Boombastic Lash Volumizer).
💋City Color Cosmetics Shimmer Shadow Cheers to Life ($3.99)
This line of eyeshadows from City Color Cosmetics are described as a heavy metallic finish and a cream-powder hybrid. They are very soft and very pigmented. Now I don’t like single eyeshadows because I forget to use them-but I also have this exact gold color repeated so many times from Ipsy! I get that this is a universal shade, but I’m sure many people are tired of receiving this color. Repurchase? No, I like the formula and how pigmented it is, but I just don’t like single eyeshadows.
💋Makeup Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil Matte Black ($21, for full size)
This eyeliner promises to be water proof, long-wearing, and ultra resistant. It has a very creamy, yet precise texture and is very pigmented. Edit: I wore this on my top eyelid (tightline) and it ended up smudged underneath my eyes not too long after! It was a hot day, but I definitely didn’t expect that to happen. It’s probably better suited as an eyeliner for the top lid. Repurchase? No, I liked this eyeliner but I love my holy grail Essence eyeliners that work great and don’t smudge on me!
