Ipsy Bag July 2017

Isn’t this bag the cutest of all I am digging this overeasy gudetama and the backside of the bag has cute butt too. The zipper says meh…how cute is that ..

Now let’s move on to the goodies

tarte cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea™ deep dive cleansing gel $1.25 & Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mandarin Green Orange & Ginger Mongongo Lip Conditioner $10

tarte cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea™ deep dive cleansing gel $1.25 & Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mandarin Green Orange & Ginger Mongongo Lip Conditioner $10

Love getting tarte products in the bag,I have enjoyed moisturizing gel from this line & it worked great. I wished the sample was little bigger. Always a great way to test out a new face cleanser.

I am very picky about lip balms and not very excited about this one. It moisturizing and hydrating as hell but I hate the smell. This balm is 100% natural and has organic ingredients. Also protects from UV damage,great for beach or pool day.

OFRA Cosmetics Victory Eyeshadow- $7.5

OFRA Cosmetics Victory Eyeshadow – $7.5

This is my first time trying out the brand ofra. I got the shade Victory which can be described as brownish greenish shadow with a golden sheen. This would go great on my brown eyes. On touching it feels soft and you can in the swatch it’s pigmented. Not a full size product.

Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold

Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold -$14

So pretty peachy pink blush with a gold sheen. You can use this as blush or as blush topper. The ingredients  are 99% natural , vegan, and extracts from lychee and chamomile. This brand is also cruelty free. This is a great shade for summer to get the glow. You can see it swatch below.

Swatches !!!

Lakur Enhanced Colour by Londontown Brit of love

Lakur Enhanced Colour by Londontown Brit of love -$16

Ipsy always keeps the nail addict in me intact. Such beautiful pink shade. Cruelty free,vegan,gluten free and 9 free formula. The color is also opaque in two coats. Full size product

Ipsy Bag July 2017  

FINAL THOUGHTS :
The total value for the bag is $48.75 for which I paid $10 which is kind of okay. I have had bags which valued much more. This month’s bag did not knock out of the park but the blush, eyeshadow and nail polish are certainly my favourites. Also the bag is so adorable. The lip balm was a good product but i hate the scent and the tarte cleanser is good but so small to know if it actually works.

Cute zipper detail

This month’s bag is made from jean material and has this bright poppy orange accent. It kind of takes me back to my school days where we all these cute zipper bags.

Okay now onto the items in the bag …

Biobelle #StayGorgeous and #Iwokeuplikethis Sheet Masks

Biobelle #StayGorgeous and #Iwokeuplikethis Sheet Masks – $9.98

I love sheet mask..the winter takes a toll on the skin.2 Full size sheet masks yay!!! Pays for the bag itself.This is the first time I will be trying Biobelle sheet mask.(Look for a mini review very soon on my Instagram) These sheet mask are made from tencel a biodegradable fiber(environment friendly) . I love the catchy names and super cute packaging …yes good packaging just gets me 🙂

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in $12 & Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Blush Brush 514

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in $12-$15 & Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Blush Brush 514-$18

Oh nail polish another full size item and a blush brush from luxie wow…Ipsy is knocking it out. I have got luxie brushes in ipsy before and they are still awesome. I like luxie brushes since their synthetic bristles allow me to use my colourpop eyeshadows and highlighters. Also they are great for powder products.I think this brush works great for bronzer or contouring. Can’t complain about a full size brush.

Swatch of Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in $12Latte

Swatch of Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in $12Latte

I have heard about 5 free nail polishes but Trust Fund Beauty has 10 free formula ,also they are vegan and cruelty free. I love dark shades ..this shade is like dark chocolate. The formula was a bit thick for my taste but two coats & done. It’s certainly on the expensive side for $15 but they are 10 free.

NYX Professional Makeup Butter™ Lipstick in Ripe Berry & Seraphine Botanicals Luminude in Primrose

NYX Professional Makeup Butter™ Lipstick in Ripe Berry $5.99 & Seraphine Botanicals Luminude in Primrose-$24

Love Nyx butter lipsticks ,in fact ipsy introduced them to me,they are so buttery and have great pigment. I already own the shade Root Beer Float (aka Pops)  which kind of a nude shade. I was very excited to see a darker shade in this formula. As the name of the shade it’s true berry shade. I love that this can be applied as a sheer wash and is also buildable.

The Botanicals Luminude in Primrose is golden liquid highlighter made with 74% water which is great for my combination skin type. I tried this as moisturizers and it gave me that lit within look. Also didn’t make my skin oily /greasy. Another full size item 🙂

MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Crown of My Canopy

MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Crown of My Canopy – 300 points

As you know you can review the products received and collect points. So when i saw the hyped up wet n wild mega glo Highlighting powder . I get the hype this is certainly a great highlighter. You can see in the swatch you can apply it sheer or get the concentrated effect. They are so finely milled it reminds of hourglass powders.

Clearista Retexturizing Gel

Clearista Retexturizing Gel -300 points 

Omg I didn’t expect this gel would be costing $70 ? Certainly a good value for 300 points. As read about it feels like a skin peel which can be used 2 to 3 times in a week.

Final Thoughts :

Ipsy just knocked it out with all 5 full size items Yay !!!  The nyx butter lipstick and the luxie brush is my favourite. Also the point redemption was of great value. The total value of the bag was $72.97 which is like wow and I paid only $10.

Theme: ROCKSTARLET

Isn’t the bag so cute and I can feel that material is so soft. It’s so apt for the festive season. I think Ipsy is just stepping up their game. Last bag was also super cute and this time they just nailed it. How cute is the star zipper and the golden inner lining in the bag.

Formula X -Huntress & Tarte Maracuja Oil

Tarte cosmetics deluxe maracuja oil-$6.7

I haven’t tried this oil strangely. I have combination skin type and it scares the hell out of me to use an oil.But i think as the weather gets cold I would add this to my matte foundation and see how it goes. Also it works for a blowout i hope this does not weigh my hair down.

Formula X Nail Polish Huntress – $1.81

I love getting nail polishes in the bag. Especially from brand like Formula X they seem to last long on my nails . Ipsy describes this polish as “Green with envy. This deep emerald shade with flecks of gold will make even the trendiest trendsetters jealous.” It’s certainly green but the flecks of gold can’t be seen when applied. (Also they are on sale on sephora.com full size for $5 )

Formula X Nail Polish Huntress Swatched

 

ciate-n-mascara

Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva & theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara

Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva-$5.85

I love matte lipsticks and red is the perfect color for this time of the year. But this one is not my favourite. The color is beautiful and it doesn’t dry out the lips. But it transfers like hell goes off everywhere. I like the formula. If it would have stayed on place it would be perfect.

theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara-$5.6

Thanks to subscription like Ipsy I haven’t bought any mascaras in a long time. This mascara has most of the good things. The brush is almost similar to the benefit roller lash and gives ton of volume and curl. But this formula is little wet and  would say use a light hand. One coat was good, when tried to do second layer it clumped my lashes.

Bonvivant Botanical Pure Masks

Bonvivant Botanical Pure Masks- $3 each 

I love sheet masks and three sheet mask are such bang for the buck. I am most excited for the Chamomile + Tea Tree Mask cools and tightens pores while deeply moisturizing.  I have tried bonvivant masks before and they work just great.

Final Thoughts :

I loved 4 out of 5 items. The Ciate liquid lipstick could have been my favourite but its transfers. The total value of the bag is $28.96 which is so much more than the $10 cost. The bag is a stunner and its going in my handbag as I write this post.

 Ipsy October Bag

Isn’t this bag so pretty and so apt for the theme Black magic ??? It perfectly suits the halloween spirit:)

Ipsy bag cute zipperIsnt ghost on the zipper so cute….I love the detail on the bag. I think this so far my favourite bag in this year.

Now enough about the enough bag let’s see what i got in my bag ?

The Balm Cabana Boy Blush- Swatched

                                      The Balm Cabana Boy Blush- Swatched $1.4

I love to get stuff from the Balm i feel this brand doesn’t get  the fair share of hype. Talking about the blush certainly a pretty color and has a satin finish but the pan is so small that i can’t get my blush brush in it. But I can use this as eyeshadow.

Pur dirty Girl Mudd Mask

                                         Pur dirty Girl Mudd Mask-$3.60

This is the first time i have received a product from the brand Pur. The size of the sample is decent i think i can around 3 to 4 uses.Tried this mask the other day and i have felt my skin was softer and not drying that’s something mud mask do to my skin

tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Belize Bordeaux-$10.6

For a matte lipstick certainly a good formula not pigmented. It acts like a sheer matte lipstick with hydration.

shaderbrush

Lottie London Perfectly Precise Eyeshadow Brush-$15

I love to get brush in subscription bags. It’s a full size item and I hate cleaning brushes so this will come in handy.

Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner-$20

Ciate Fierce flicks has a felt tip eyeliner. It works great for winged liner and is quite pigmented but not cry proof !! I just feel these felt tip eyeliners dry out too soon. Hope this doesn’t dry quickly. Price was wise it’s certainly up there.

Final Thoughts : I loved 3 out of 5 items. The blush would have been my favourite but it’s so tiny and the matter lipstick is nothing out of the ordinary. The total value of the bag is $50.67 which is so much more than the $10 cost (without including the cost of the super cute bag )

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow-Ethereal and Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush

 Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush

One can’t have enough makeup brushes and I am one of them. A synthetic eyeshadow brush for all over lid application or brow bone .. love it .The brush hair seems soft and it feels sturdy and not cheap.

Pacifica
Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow
 –Ethereal

A nice pearl eyeshadow single without any parabens,with any nasty stuff. Vegan and cruelty free.

Its nice color for the inner corner highlight or the brow bone with dual chrome stain finish.

Definitely highly pigmented 🙂 It’s not glittery like the stila kitten but has nice sheen ..love it for daily use when you don’t want to think much ..

Velvet 59 Velvet Rose Lipgloss Noisette (nude cocoa) and (MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm

 

Velvet 59 Velvet Rose Lipgloss Noisette (nude cocoa) 

Love this lip gloss it smells like rose and makes my lips so soft and moisturized. I want to put this on my lips all day long. Its doesnt have any color and since its nude i can use it over any lipstick …or just on my bare lips ..It my new favs… if ipsy sends me every month one of these i would be sold 🙂

MALIN+GOETZ Mojito Lip Balm

Lip Balm in my ipsy bag ..just awesome …the winter in boston has been so dry I need lip balms ..and i always wanted to try this as i have heard great reviews about them and they are so true …its not too sticky but it has the right moisture ..another item which i am glad to have ..
