My ipsy bag is here! I was actually pretty excited about it because I really wanted the actual bag! It’s so cute! It has a beaded look to it with a white envelope on the front, sealed with a red heart. The back is pink, which fits into the theme.
The theme this month is “Pretty in #ipsyPink.” I wasn’t really excited about that because it let me know that the majority of the products would have a pink theme and I am not a big fan of the color pink. lol! Especially not pink shades in makeup. They never really look good on my skin tone.
This month I was introduced to four new brands. This is definitely something I appreciate from ipsy. I’m always finding out about new brands. The total value of this bag is approximately $60. Not bad for only $10 a month. If you would like to subscribe, click here to use my referral link. Now, let’s see what products I received.
As I stated in my intro, I’m not a fan of anything pink. But, when I opened the box this polish came in, I was pleasantly surprised! The polish was not a bright pink. It was a beautiful dusty rose color. As soon as I saw it, I instantly wanted to change my polish to see what this one looks like on my nails! That’s how the picture above happened. Lol! Another bonus, it’s full size! The only downside is that the polish applied a little streaky. But, it will do for the few days that I will wear it.
I have not tried this product yet and I can’t say I will. Since I don’t wear a full face of makeup, I don’t really see the point in applying this to my face. In addition, due to my skin being so sensitive, I definitely won’t be trying it out. But, let me share with you the description of the benefits of this product from the Smashbox website:
• Softens complexion to make foundation look like skin
• Instantly absorbs and adds radiance
• 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils including moisturizing jojoba and calming chamomile
• Morning and evening application adds increased moisture in just 4 weeks
• Apply a few drops to split-ends, cuticles, elbows and clavicle for a dewy, youthful sheen.
I have never worn blush before and won’t start today. Mainly because I just don’t feel like adding another product to my routine. But, this pink shade will not complement my skin tone. It will be too light. It would like best on a fairer skin tone. I will have to find someone to give this to.
I can’t say I was excited to receive this facial lotion. As I stated above, my skin is really sensitive so I do not like to try out new products. I did test a little spot along my jaw bone and I noticed my skin broke out a little bit. Which means I definitely didn’t apply it to my entire face, which sucks because from the little I applied, I could tell it was very moisturizing. It also had a pleasant citrus scent that was not overbearing. I would definitely recommend this lotion for people that do not have sensitive skin. And since I can’t use it on my face, I may just use it on my hands so that it doesn’t go to waste!
I do not wear lip gloss often anymore due to me wearing lipstick on a daily basis. Well that’s what I thought before this lip gloss entered my life. It is amazing! This lipgloss has a light pink tint to it, almost nude, and it is LOADED with shimmer. But, not the annoying shimmer that you can feel. A very smooth shimmer. It’s so smooth that it makes you think of crushed diamonds. It is extremely moisturizing and even with the gloss being super glossy, it is not sticky. It feels very smooth on your lips. It really is just LOVE! I would’ve never thought that I would like this lip gloss as much as I do, but I am so sold! I will probably purchase it in another color that will be more flattering on my skin tone. The only thing I did not like about this product was the applicator. I thought it would have a doe foot wand applicator. Instead, it had a wand with a thin brush on the end. I think the brush made applying it kind of difficult because the brush seemed flimsy. Maybe on the full size tubes, the brush is a little more sturdy. But, other than that, I would definitely recommend this.
Have you tried any of these products? If so, which ones? If not, which ones would you like to try? Share with me in the comments!
