I’ll start with a short intro if you haven’t heard about ipsy subscription. If you did, you can just scroll down to the pictures.
I picked up the idea from one of my favorite Youtubers Kathleen Lights when she was sharing what she got in her monthly subscriptions. That’s how I discovered ipsy bag.
That is an awesome way to explore and try out different makeup, skincare and hair products. If you subscribe, you will be getting a pretty makeup bag with 5 products that are selected for you, and importantly, just for $10. Isn’t it a bargain? Btw, if you are interested to get it, I’ll share a link as my referral, the case is by referring your friends and subscribing to their social media pages, you are earning points which could be exchanged for products.
So, let’s cut to the chase. Yesterday I finally got my first ipsy Glam Bag. I’m so excited, literally like a kid on Christmas morning. I guess, worth mentioning is that it’s really a glam bag, the package it came in is not just a dull brown USPS package, but a radiant pink (like fuchsia pink). This month the make up bag is a nice dusty pink color with a black net decor. When I opened the package, my roommate said that she wants to subscribe just for the makeup bags itself. There was a card with an inspiring message “you are beautiful” (pass it on) and 5 new products that I couldn’t wait to try out.
🔹tarte cosmetics tarteist™ quick dry matte lip paint in color
AMAZING! Though I got the color very similar to the NYX soft matte lip cream that I featured in my February favorites, I love it. Colors are the same but the quality differs. It literally dries in seconds and last soooo long, definitely longer than the NYX one. After 5
hours on my lips, after eating and drinking coffee it faded just a little bit. Definitely a candidate for March favorites.
That’s how my hand looked like after I tried to wipe out the swatch.
update: Love it! For some reason, I don’t use it that often, but it’s definitely less drying lipstick as for a matte one.
🔹 EYEKO Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Satin
I haven’t played with this eye shadow yet but I really like its color and satin finish, I think I can definitely make it work.
update: honestly, never used it. I tried it out when trying new make up but I never end up wearing it out.
🔹Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer
I am always on a hunt for a good moisturizer for oily skin. I really like the rosy scent it has. I tried it twice, it definitely does the job moisturizing and hydrating my skin, but I am more of a fan of gel type of moisturizer. I probably keep this 0.34 oz bottle for travel time.
update: I don’t use it on a regular basis. But as I mentioned earlier, I just keep in my make up bag, in case, I’m staying over at my friend’s place and don’t have all my skincare products.
🔹PÜR Cosmetics Disappearing Ink 4-in-1 Concealer in Medium
Hmmm, shoot! I got it in medium which it way too orange and dark for me so, unfortunately, I cannot say more about it.
update: that was not my shade, so I gave it to my friend. According to her, it’s a nice quality concealer.
🔹OUAI Treatment Masque
It’s a treatment for a damaged hair, which I have. It smells amazing but thing is when I applied it onto my hair the smell kinda changed and was pretty weird. No idea what’s the deal, but as long as it strengthens my hair it’s bearable.
update: it lasted 3-4 times, and I didn’t see any evident results. I wouldn’t repurchase it because of the weird smell it has when applied to my hair.
