Ipsy Bag

Ipsy  has been on point with their bag design. The blush color is certainly trending. The bag folds and has the suede kind of touch on one side. The zipper is rose gold metal ..super chic. The bag is quite big then the past ones.

Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer

Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer-$3.57/.34oz

Love getting moisturizer in my bag. Good size for travel. Its great for all skin types.

Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment -$2.99/50ml  Elizabeth Mott Blending Brush- $15

I have tried conditioning treatment from Marc Anthony and they have always worked great. The heat and winter has dried out my fine hair. This product will be certainly put use and it smells great. Good size sample and will get quite good number of uses.

I can never have enough brushes as i m so lazy to wash them 🙂 Full size item and the color is so cute mint and gold wow. The brush has synthetic bristles.

tarteist™ quick dry matte lip paint in delish

tarteist™ quick dry matte lip paint in delish-$3.33/1ml

Love to try new matte liquid lipsticks. This one has kind of thinner formula and dries down quite quickly. This shade looks a lot darker on me then in the bottle. Love the applicator is kind broad at the tip. If you don’t like that drying feeling I would say these are not for you. Also they kind of settle in the fine lines and the lasting power is not that great. Too bad i kind of love the shade.

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa- $5 maybe ?

Okay another single eyeshadow but this time it has this gorgeous pinky mauve color . And it has magnets  this one went in my Sephora Z palette.  It can be used dry or wet.I am sure I will be using this color for quick looks as the color payoff is sheer. I hate when the actual website doesn’t give the  information how much does the full size weigh

 Final Thoughts:

The total value for the bag is $29.89 for which I paid $10 and plus a free cute bag. That’s not bad there is not a single product which i wont used. The blending brush was my favorite out of the all.

Ipsy Bag January 2017

The bag is so cute. The inner silver lining is super soft and seems like a good material. My bag had little chemical smell. But it went away after a day.

Pacifica Blushious -Wildrose

Pacifica Blushious -Wildrose $12/3g

Love the blush. It has this coppery rosy color and some sheen.It’s not that dark the way it looks in the pan  Super flattering and no chunks of glitter.A full size product 🙂

Ciate London Gelology topcoat

Ciate London Gelology topcoat $17/13.5ml

I have tried so many top coats and never found something long lasting as the HK girl topcoat which is my favorite. When i saw this topcoat in my bag ,i was kind of disappointed. But when i tried on my nails..i think this is the best gel top coat i have tried. Except this is not a fast drying top coat. Warning : wait until your nail polish has dried completely.

My mani lasted for 4 days and had a small chip. Great if you are not in a hurry. Full size product yay !!!

Pur-lisse Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 Mud Mask Exfoliant

Pur-lisse Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 Mud Mask Exfoliant $20/15ml

This is such cool mixture of mask and exfoliant. The mask was easy to apply and the scent was pretty good. Also the exfoliating particles were very fine and gentle on skin. Full size item …wow. Would get lot of uses.

it cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Antiaging Concealer

it cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Antiaging Concealer $4.5/1.5ml

I don’t think i have any luck with it cosmetics concealer. The concealer is too thick to blend and also after blending there was very little coverage. The sample is so tiny.

Trust Fund Beauty lip Gloss -Method to the Madness

Trust Fund Beauty lip Gloss -Method to the Madness -$22

This lip gloss goes on almost clear and i like that it’s not stick.  It doesn’t have any fragrance. Great one for the winter months. This is a full size item and its limited edition.The packaging is also quite good.

Ipsy January 2017 Bag

Final Thoughts :

Out of the 5 products I don’t think the concealer works for me. Rest four items were full size items Yay !!!  The topcoat was my favourite of the entire bag .And the bag is super cute.The total value of the bag was $75.5 which is like wow and I paid only $10.

December Ipsy Bag

December Ipsy Bag

This month’s bag is super chic, like a clutch. I think ipsy has really amped up their game with the bag design and themes.

Marc Anthony True Professional Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Deep Hydrating Treatment ($2.99) & MintPear Beauty Blending Sponge ($20)

The Marc Anthony conditioning is a repeat offender,but i love this deep conditioning treatment. I love to use it as hair mask.  Great for winter months.

Mintpear blending sponge was kind hard even when soak in water and is not soft like the beauty blender. Certainly not a dupe for beauty blender but great sponge for baking and highlighting. Also the price seemed bit steep. I would rather get a beauty blender for the same amount.

Tarte cosmetics tarteist™ glossy lip paint in wcw ($3.33) NYX Professional Makeup Prismatic Shadow – Bedroom Eyes ($6)

The tarte glossy lip paint in the shade WCW is the perfect shade for this festive season. Its pigmented and also hydrating and I love the deluxe size to carry in my clutch.

This was my first nyx prismatic shadow and i love them great pigmentation and good staying power. Also you would be glad to know this shade bedroom eyes is a great dupe for one of the shades in the Nars duo in Isolde. Isn’t that great ? This duo has been added to my cart for so long . I am glad to have this affordable dupe 🙂

AURORA INTENSIVELY PRECISE EYELINER in BLACKBERRY ($8)

eyeliner-closeup

Another black eyeliner from Ipsy. Ipsy seriously needs to stop sending me black eyeliners.  I was expecting this eyeliner to work out for me  but this was so watery,patchy and creating a wing was a nightmare.

Final Thoughts :

Out of the 5 products I don’t think the eyeliner works for me. The sponge can be used but i would not buy it for the price.Rest three items were absolutely great and right up my alley.And the bag is super chic.The total value of the bag was $40.32 which is not bad as i paid only $10.

 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 )

Lets begin ….

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 ..
