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.

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.

The zipper details in the Ipsy are so cute.

Let’s go on to the products.

BioRepublic SkinCare Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask & Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask

BioRepublic SkinCare Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask & Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask- $10 (2 Mask)

I am always a happy camper when I get Sheet masks. These are perfect for a lazy weekend. Full size 2 sheet masks. We are off to a great start !!!

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish Game Changer $15 & NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé Plush – $6

For nail polish lover like me nail polish in subscription bags are perfect. These trust fund nail polish are 10 free and super trendy color. Check out the swatch at the bottom. The formula is 2 coats opaque and long lasting.

I was very eager to try this NYX Wipped Fouette. I am surprised how easily it blends on the cheeks,but when it comes to use these as lip gloss or a lippe i am kind of not so impressed.This shade is too nude for my lips and doesn’t last longer then 10 mins.

theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush- $ & Luna By Luna Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Jace -$15

theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush- $3.73  & Luna By Luna Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Jace -$15

I am not happy to see thebalm sample,but glad to see that they have at least somewhat increased the sample size. Love the blush shade and so appropriate for summer.

This would be the first time that i have received a product from Luna by Luna. Full size eyeshadow is always great addition to the bag. The shade looks kind of peachy in the pan but on application it looks a lot pinker. The eyeshadow does kick up some powder when dipping the brush,but light tapping can certainly help.

Check out the Swatches ….

Final Thoughts :

The total value for the bag is $49.73 for which I paid $10 which is certainly not bad. I loved all the products except the Nyx Wipped Souffle the shade is too nude and doesn’t last long

This is the first time that the bag was wrapped in a pink paper.

I am digging this transparent ice cream cone bag. The see thru feature is great when you are travelling and its helps to find things quickly.

May Ipsy Bag Super Cute 🙂

City Color Cosmetics Bold Brow Eyebrow Powder in Medium $4 & Beauty & Pin-Ups
Fearless Hair Rescue Masque $10

The City color bold brow powder duo kind of surprised me. I had no experience with brow powders,so this was something new to try and it really works great. The darker shade is perfect and i mix in the lighter one to customise if required. The angled brush is also quite nice.Once I have filled my brows I set them with a brow gel. This is one of my go to brow product.

Pin-Ups Fearless Hair Rescue Masque- Hair mask are my favourite when pampering myself once a while. Also it’s had become a necessity now that my hair goes through so much heat and product. The size seems adequate for 1 or more then one usage.

 IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin

IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black – This is one of my holy grail mascara. Especially this travel size is my favourite. This mascara always gives compliments . I remember someone even asked me what lashes are you wearing and that’s how i know it’s a winner.

Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin – Another great brand, I always enjoy a good highlighter. If you like be dewy in summer which i love to. This shade is certainly perfect and can be used as eyeshadow. The powder is finely milled and not too glittery. Also I am glad the size of the pan is not tiny like some of the Balm cosmetics one. It went right into my z palette.

CAILYN Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable

CAILYN Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable $19

A matte liquid lipstick in the shade Practicable described as cinnamon nude. Full size product which is always great. This liquid lipstick has a moussy texture doesn’t dry that quickly, didn’t dry my lips and faded  away smoothly. This shade doesn’t look that dark on my lips it’s like my lips but better..in other words perfect nude. Also it works much better if you apply one thin layer.

 Final Thoughts:

The total value for the bag is $54 for which I paid $10.That’s hands down highest value for the Ipsy bag and i love the transparent bag. This bag had awesome products from great brands. Super hero mascara one of my holy grail , the UD highlighter and the liquid lipstick were some of my favourites.

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.

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 )
