Check out all my ipsy reviews.
My ipsy bag arrived at a reasonable time this month. Last month I got it super late.
The theme this month is "Destination Chic". The makeup bag came in three colours in blue, pink, and purple.
IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Mini Gel Eyeliner
This No-Tug Gel Eyeliner glides on easily, even on delicate lids. I hate getting eyeliner in my ipsy bag so I don't care how good it is, I won't be using it.
Épicé International Hydrating Mask
This refreshing mask uses Kaolin Clay to absorb oil and impurities without stripping your skin of moisture! I also don't care for facial masks, so this product is of no use to me. So far ipsy has really failed with the customization in my bag this month.
Slmissglam Small Contour W07 Brush
I like getting new makeup brushes and this one is very cute and versatile, but for my needs I don't need one this size. Very soft though and good quality.
Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer
Now this is a product I like and it's full size. This bronzer can be used as eye shadows or highlighter and there's 4 different coral and copper shades to play around with.
PEEK Beauty Nom Nom Natural Lip Plumping Balm (Miracle)
This shimmering nude shade adds a subtle sheen while naturally plumping your pout thanks to key ingredients like ginger root, chili pepper extract and lychee extract.
I know this comes off as a negative review, but it's a good ipsy bag overall, just wasn't for me personally. There are a couple of products I do like and others I dislike only because they're not products I tend to use. Even when I get products I'm not happy with I never consider cancelling my subscription. I've come to accept that some months are better than others and it's a fun and affordable beauty subscription, so I'm always hopeful that next month will be better.
