Price: $10.00 USD (+$4.95 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 5 (+a cute bag).
Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that introduces customers to new hair and beauty products.This month’s theme is très jolie, the understated french makeup look I guess… sometimes Ipsy’s themes aren’t so clear to me. I do love the bag, it has a velvety texture and I love the black honeycomb-like pattern against the peach (the pattern is only on one side). Unlike most bags, this one is square and you can fold it over to carry around like a clutch. I personally prefer these bags over the rectangular ones because they fit more items when travelling.
All prices below are converted to Canadian Dullars. This month I decided not to swatch the items I received. I didn’t want to open any more makeup until I started using what I have, sorry!
Tarte Cosmetics tarteist™ quick dry matte lip paint in vibin
Full Size: $24.00 (.20 oz), Sample Size: $4.08 (.034 oz)
It’s always nice to receive products from a brand that I love. I’m quite obsessed with Tarte. They are vegan and cruelty-free and their Amazonian Collection has some of my favourite products.
I wish I had received the nude colours instead of this deep red only because I received a similar colour in my Boxycharm this month.
Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer
Full Size: $28.07 (59 mL), Sample Size: $4.76 (10 mL)
What’s cute about this brand is that it targets the skincare needs of those who frequently fly, hence the name Air Repair. Not that I fly often, but sometimes being trapped in an office tower all day at work can feel reminiscent of the stale, recycled air that passengers experience on an airplane. Plus, I have dry skin so I love any type of moisturizer. This is designed for all skin types and has hyaluronic acid.
Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush
Full Size: $16.04, this is full size
I received the Beau Gâchis shadow brush in my Ipsy Glambag in March 2016 and I’ve been using it to apply my eyeshadow ever since. I like this blending brush because it’s very soft and will be useful to blend in the crease.
ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black
Full Size: $14.39, this is full size
Black and brown liners are everyday staples for me. I have really large round eyes and wearing liner helps define them. I wear pencil liner-type products in my waterline and that’s what I’ll use this for. On the Ipsy website this is described as a long-wearing, water-resistant formula (that) didn’t smudge, budge, or transfer.
Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa
Full Size: $13.37, I think this is full size
This shadow colour is described as a shimmery rose. I think this colour is super pretty in the pan and it’s a good eyeshadow size. I think the packaging is a bit bulky, but I’m just being picky. I also love that this has magnets at the bottom, making it easy to pop into my custom palette when I’m ready to use it.
This is a nice bag mixed of some skincare and makeup. I’m really happy with the the Beau Gâchis blending brush and Modelco black liner. I’m also looking forward to trying the Doucce eyeshadow and the Air Repair Complexion booster. Most of these are products I’ve never tried before so I’m looking forward to giving them a go. Total Value of my bag; $52.64.
Did you get Ipsy this month? What was in your bag?
Lots of Love,
