What I Received:

Full Size: $19.77 (15mL), this is a full size item

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Lacquer in Champagne Socialite

I’ve received a nail polish from Trust Fund Beauty before that was a beautiful colour but I never used it because I don’t wear nail polish! I’m getting really tired of nail lacquers in all my boxes, I get them every month. This delivers an opaque colour in a single swipe. On the website this looks to be a beautiful shimmery champagne colour.

Full Size: $39.00 (.14 oz), Sample Size: $17.00 (.05 oz)

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme

I’m really into lip plumpers (my fave is Soap and Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker) so I’m excited to try this one from Too Faced. I haven’t tried this yet so I can’t say whether or not it has a tingling sensation or not. It’s supposed to give you visible fullness in seconds and has avocado and jojoba oil to condition the lips and give you a smooth finish. I love the packaging. Even the wand on this deluxe sample is gold with cute ribbon detailing on it.

Full Size: $47.99 (30 mL), Sample Size: $7.99 (5 mL)

Eau Thermal Avene – Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum

I’ve received some samples from Avene before and I’m always interested in trying more. This will be a nice cream to use over the face. The heart of this brand is their Avene Thermale Water which is sourced from the south of France. The water is naturally full of many minerals. Their history is quite interesting off their website. Their line is designed specifically for sensitive skin which I can appreciate because it likely will work with my dry skin.

Full Size: $31.63 (.14 oz), this is a full size item

Seraphine Botanicals Guava Butter

This is a 91% natural creamy lip & cheek stain with pure shea butter. The colour is a subtle rosy pink. This brand is really appealing to me, they use plant ingredients and all their products are made in small batches. It’s 100% cruelty-free, gluten-free, preservative-free and no harsh chemicals or dyes. All really great stuff! Most of all I’m really in love with house nice it glides on lips.

Full Size: $32.92 (3.25 oz), Sample Size: $9.12 (.9 oz)

Buff Her House of Exfoliation Vanilla Almond Crumbles

I was expecting this to have a strong scent of vanilla & almond but it’s actually really nice a subtle. This is an exfoliating cleanser starts off as dry grains that you add to water to lather up. The granules are made of sugar and rice. I really love these types of exfoliating cleansers because then I can just add a bit to my favourite cleanser for everyday exfoliating or use it without a cleanser for a full on, strong exfoliant.

My Thoughts

I wasn’t too excited about Ipsy this month. I also expecting more products to feel really glamorous but these were just meh for me.There are some things that I do like such as the Too Face Lip Injection and Buff Her House of Exfoliation. Total Value of this Bag; $85.51.

What did you think of Ipsy this month?

Lots of Love,
