Hi guys! Today I’m going to talk about my Ipsy bags for March and April. Ipsy is a $10/month subscription that includes 5 sample products (makeup, hair & skin care) inside a makeup bag. Also, you can get the add-on products that range from sample size to full size, for a small amount of money ($3-$12).
For March, the bag had a metallic rose gold tone and the blue zipper. This month basically all my products were makeup related. First, a Shimmer Squad highlighter from Lottie London in The Good Girl. Love this product: it’s shimmery but not in a bad way, the color is beautiful and it lasts a reasonably amount of time.
The next product is an eyeshadow from IBY Beauty in the shade Get Soaked. It has great pigmentation and blendability. Works perfectly as a blush. Then I have the Tarte Maneater Voluptuous Mascara in Black, which I don’t quite love. It gives me volume and length, but it flakes during the day. The last two products are for the lips, one is a lip balm and the other is a liquid lipstick. The lip balm is the Berry Lip Fix from Skyn Iceland, it feels hydrating but it stung/burned my lips a little when I first used it. After using it for some time, it doesn’t burn my lips so maybe they were a bit dehydrated at the time. Either way, I’m loving this balm and will continue to use it. As for the Realher I Am Adaptable Matte Liquid Lip, I must say it has an awesome pigmentation and durability. But I don’t actually use it that much because of the shade, not the formula (I don’t use red lipstick that often).
The last thing from March’s bag is the Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette in Smokey. This was the add-on I selected for this bag. At first, I was not impressed with the pigmentation but overall is a good palette. Quality is good but blendability is somewhat average for me.
Now, let’s get into April’s bag which arrived on time and included a white plastic fabric with bright yellow lemons and a yellow zipper. For this bag, there’s no add-on as I wasn’t interested in the products available. The first product is theBalmJour Creamy Lip Stain in Salut! The color is amazing and it has great pigmentation. The next product is from Tarte and it’s the Double Dutty Beauty Base Tape Hydrating Primer. It feels hydrating and a bit sticky, I’m still trying it with different foundations and setting sprays.
Next, I got a Laura Sanchez Moods eyeshadow in Martini Ollive Green. I’m quite impressed with this product, the pigmentation and blendability is incredible. It stays on the eye, I love the color and use it wet almost every time. Then I found a new favorite highlighter, OFRA Cosmetics Highlighter in Rodeo Drive. I’m so in love with it! Love the formula: it’s blendable, lasts really good on the skin and looks beautiful. The last product is the 100% Extra Virgin Coco Oil & Shea Butter Hydrating Curl Cream from Marc Anthony True Professional. I’ve been using it a lot lately, I like it but I’m not sure yet if it works for me.
This is everything from my Ipsy Glam Bags from March and April 2019. Sorry for the late post, but life has been crazy the past few months.
Let’s keep connected!
