Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I have blogged last, but I haven’t forgotten about you all! I have so many plans for this blog and for myself so stay tuned 😉
Instead of writing a post as soon as I got my Ipsy bag; I waited until I used all of the products so I was able to give a better review of the items. This bag wasn’t my favorite but I got some awesome products! So let’s dive in.
So the bag is super cute. It reminds me of a mermaid, I am not sure why. Probably because its metallic looking and has a weird texture. I love this bag and I am currently using it for some makeup products that I carry around with me all of the time. This month I received- It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illuminating Concealer, theBalm Cosmetics Bronzer, Temptu Smooth & Matte Primer, pur~lisse Blue Lotus Seed 5 in 1 Mud Mask and a Crown Brush, Beaute Basics C405 Contour Blush Brush
This isn’t the first time that I have received an It Cosmetics concealer and I am not complaining! This is the Bye Bye Under Eye Illuminator concealer. I LOVE this brand. A little definitely goes a loooong way. It is very thick and a little tough to blend, but the pay of is totally worth it! My favorite part about this product is that it’s waterproof. I haven’t put this concealer to the waterproof test yet, but I figured it would be perfect for when Josh and I go to Scrub Island next month!
This is the theBalm Cosmetics bronzer in shade Bahama Mama. So, I love this brand and I think the packaging is so cute but I feel that the pan size is so small that it is so difficult to cover my bronzer brush in product to actually apply to my face. I know it’s small because it needs to fit in the bag but still, I want to be able to actually use the product as a bronzer, not an eye shadow. This shade is very similar to the Benefit Hoola bronzer. I like, I like.
Temptu, I have never heard of this brand. This is the Temptu Smooth & Matte primer. So, I have used this primer a few times under my foundation and it is so hard for me to love another primer because the Benefit Porefessional just works wonders on my skin. I am in the middle with this product. I don’t love it but I don’t hate it. I would recommend a few others primers before this one,
Skin care; always a hit or miss for me. This was a hit! This is the pur~lisse Blue Lotus Seed 5 in 1 Mud Mask. I really like this mask a lot. I used it 3 times last week and my skin felt so amazing right after I took the mask off. Some of the benefits of this mask are brightening, detoxifying, tightening soothing and exfoliating. I like it enough to use it on my face, but I don’t love it enough to go out any buy a full size bottle of this.
As you know, I love getting brushes in my bag! This is the Crown Brush Beaute Basics C405 Contour Blush Brush. So I am no brush professional, I don’t know what brush I am supposed to use for what. I use what works for me the best. So, I was using this as an actual contour brush. I like it. It is denser than I thought but I made it work. I like how it keeps the product on the brush and doesn’t make a muddy mess of the product on my face. I am going to check out more of their brushes online. Their website reminds me of Morphe, inexpensive but good quality brushes.
Like I say all of the time, I love getting my Ipsy bag. Getting a few new make up products every month, trying out new brands and finding new favorites. I can’t wait until I get February’s bag! What did you get in your January Ipsy bag?
