Hey, everyone! It’s been lurking in the back of my head that I’ve neglected to post Ipsy unboxings and reviews for the past month. Whoops! We were crazy busy getting everything ready for the wedding that it unfortunately became a lesser priority. Now that all the craziness is over, I finally have some time to sit down and take a deep breath, so let’s delve into this!
This was a pretty good month, but I wasn’t crazy about the bag. It will likely go in a bundle of Ipsy bags on my Poshmark account.
It Haircare 12-in-1 leave-in hair repair treatment—LOVE. It does wonders for my tangled mess of hair, and it smells so good. I even took it on our honeymoon—that’s how much I love it! I’d compare it to the It’s a 10 brand.
Face masks—ok, I’ll be honest: I haven’t used these yet. I’ve been holding off because I want to use them with my sister for some much-needed girl time. But how can you go wrong with a face mask?
Ciate nail polish in the color Spinning Teacups—this nail polish has a fat little brush, which I love because it’s easier to handle and I’m less likely to make a mess. The color is pretty, and it stayed on my nails for quite a while.
Rodial eyeliner—I’ve been using this every day. So hooked. It glides on so smoothly.
NYX liquid highlighter—this was one giant NOPE for me. It’s a mess as soon as you take the cap off, and it left my face splotchy and streaky no matter how much I blended.
I didn’t think I’d like this bag, but then it arrived and it’s so chic! I love it!
Tarte mascara—I thought I had a flawed mascara because the cap snaps off instead of twisting, which is pretty messy. Turns out it’s not a flaw. I can overlook it, though, because the formula is great—it doesn’t flake, doesn’t clump, and the brush separates my lashes well.
Pixie lipstick—not too crazy about this. It was practically the same color as my natural lips when I applied it.
Bella pierre loose powder blush in Autumn Glow—I didn’t think I’d like this as much as I do. Ok, and the name certainly helps. I’m a sucker for anything fall related. It’s this beautiful bronze that’s pretty by itself or layered on top of another blush—and works for contouring too!
Epice toner—I’ve only used this a few times, and it’s alright. Nothing too great or too horrible.
Befine brown sugar exfoliating cleanser—I was dubious of this because I get so many exfoliators, and they all seem the same. But I really loved this one—it smells amazing and felt so scrubby on my skin!
