Better late than never! Especially since I’ve gotten really good products in these past few bags I really wanted to review them! 🖤
🌻Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo
I love receiving masks and testing them out- we received two : Kiwi Fruit Yoghurt and Strawberry Yoghurt. They both claim to provide smoothness and radiance to your complexion and refine, brighten, and enhance the skin. I’ve only used the Kiwi Fruit so far and it smells really amazing. It sort of has the texture of conditioner and doesn’t completely dry down which is great for people who hate the tightness of some clay masks. It did soften and give enhance my skin a bit and would be great for people with dry skin.
🌞 Hey Honey Come Clean Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub ($24, for full size)
This is a cleansing and exfoliating scrub with non-abrasive, crystalline beads to help clear away blackheads and dead skin cells. It’s also good for all skin types and gentle enough for sensitive skin. It has a sort of lemon-y smell and leaves the skin very soft.
🌻 Catrice Highlighting Powder Champagne Campaign ($5.99)
This highlighter has a soft velvet texture with a pearl effect. It’s a classic highlighting color that looks good on everyone. And while it is pigmented , it’s not that blinding highlighter when first applied, but can be built up. It’s great to use as an everyday highlighter.
🌞 Crown Brush Medium Face Contour ($6.99)
This brush with soft synthetic fibers can be used for liquid, powder, and cream. I’ve never used a Crown brush before but I really like the quality of this brush. The bristles are compact yet soft and I think works best with blending in cream products like liquid contour and highlight.
🌻 Makeup Forever Excessive Arresting Volume Mascara ($25, for full size)
This mascara claims to create long lasting panoramic volume for a dramatic eye-opening effect as well as brig a smudge proof formula. I haven’t opened it yet but the wand looks pretty thin which seems to always work best for my lashes.
This faux leather, studded bag might be my favorite I’ve received. Its simple yet classy with just black and gold and it’s the only Ipsy bag I’ve actually used as a clutch.
▪️Nomad Cosmetics Multi-Perfection Illuminating Bronzer Duo Principessa
This “bronzer” duo is more like a highlighting duo to me. It has a slightly pink-champagne shade and a light gold shade, mixed together is light pinky-gold shade. It’s a small compact but I can get each color separately and so it’s like having 3 highlighters in 1. It’s pigmented but gives a natural highlight that you can build up.
▪️Feel Renewed Pumkin Walnut Facial Cleanser ($28, for full size)
▪️ Smashbox Photofinish Radiance Foundation Primer ($39, for full size)
This is a satin smooth primer that gives an instant glow while hydrating the skin. I normally don’t like the texture of Smashbox’s other popular primers because they have that silicone-y feeling. This one however is much more like a cream with a slight glow in it that doesn’t come through too strong through the foundation-which is a good thing. It gives a beautiful natural looking glow.
▪️ Luxie Beaut Rose Gold 207 Medium Angled Shading Brush ($12)
Ipsy loves to send these brushes, and I love receiving them! I now have a nice collection of Luxie brushes and they’re all amazing. This is a synthetic, fluffy angled brush that can be used for powder or cream. I don’t use angled brushes much to do my eyeshadow so I have to play with it more but it does pick up and blend very well.
▪️ E Nature Birch Juice Hydro Sleeping Pack ($28, for full size)
This is a moisturizer/mask that you apply a generous amount as a final step in your skincare routine and leave on overnight, rinse off the next morning. With birch juice, it is supposed to intently hydrate your skin. It doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin and you don’t wake up with a greasy face at all. I’ve never tried a product like this and I really like it so far!
