My last Ipsy Bag was a major let down, which you can read about here. This month was going to be the last chance I gave Ipsy- and I am relieved to say I received a really decent bag. I’m still torn, as only 2/5 Ipsy Bags have been worth the subscription and anticipation. Do you all think that’s worth it? I still don’t know.
Also, I have been battling a cold, and I am still enduring some back pain. I am sorry my posts lately have been all product reviews without many pictorials. I do hope that my reviews have at least been helpful in some way. I’m really hopeful to feel better after the holidays and get some pictorials up for you all. That being said, I’d love some comments with requests!
Alright, here’s my bag!
Tarte Lights, Camera, Action Mascara: I had never tried Tarte mascaras before this sample, and I have to say I love it. I will likely purchase this when I run out. This mascara not only makes my lashes look longer, but also makes them appear as though I curl them (I never curl my lashes… because I’m lazy). I also love that this mascara is infused with olive esters to condition lashes.
Nourish Organic Eye Cream: I have a very sensitive eye area, so I wasn’t surprised that this made my skin burn a bit when applied. That being said, I do love that it is organic and cruelty free, and I think this is a great company. If you don’t have super sensitive skin, even to organic products, check this company out. Their products are made with powerful antioxidants and contain all natural formulas!
Cailyn Eye Polish in Orchid: I’d never heard of this brand before, but I am pleasantly surprised by this. When I saw I was receiving the shade “Orchid” for some reason I was thinking of a pale, purple-y color. This shade is more of a champagne color, which is one of my favorite colors to wear on my lids. This is a mineral eye shadow, it’s very pigmented, and it feels like silk. Check out their website, because they have some really great looking products!
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Parfait: I actually already had this lip balm! I have been slowly collecting all NYX lip products because they are the best in my opinion (especially for the price). These lip balms are soft, silky, actually hydrating (most tinted lip balms I’ve tried actually dry out my lips!), and provides a beautiful sheer tint of color.
Bumble & Bumble Repair Blow Dry: I treat my hair with the utmost respect, I really do. However, my hair has a mind of its own and loves to defy me… which is why I was ecstatic to receive this gem. My hair actually looks nourished for once in my life, and I do believe I’ll be getting the full sized bottle of this!
So that’s my bag! What did you get in yours this month? Remember, please leave me some requests for future makeup looks!
