I have been subscribed to ipsy for just about a year now (December 2013) and generally, I love the products. They have introduced me to First Aid Beauty and Jesse’s Girl along with countless other brands that I now love.
However, I wasn’t overly impressed this month. They offered fabulous products that I was interested in, but none of which I received.
That’s a lie. My first and favourite product in the bag is the Jesse’s Girl Mineralized Baked Powder eye shadow in Ocean Breeze. It is huge, goes on quite dark which I like and is surprisingly not glittery. I mainly have mixed this with other blues to deepen the colour but I do enjoy it a lot. I wore it today actually 😉
I received one other make up product but I don’t really care for it. The Starlooks Lip gloss formula is nice but I am not a big lip gloss wearer and the colour is too plain for me. I received the colour Guilty Pleasure which is almost a dusty pink. I will likely keep this, but I wish I could have switched this out for the Nicole by OPI nail polish (or a lipstick or a mascara or a face mask…)
This product I haven’t actually tried yet, but bare with me. The Skyn Iceland Glacial cleansing cloths could be awesome but I am a little bias when it comes to make up wipes. I always buy the Baléa 3 in 1 cleansing cloths (a 56 pk) at Shoppers. They are frequently on sale for $6 and don’t sting my eyes, don’t smell bad PLUS actually remove my make up. You really can’t go wrong.
I also received the Face Oasis hydrating treatment by h2o+ which I do plan to use eventually, but I have a feeling it is going to be way to hydrating for me. My skin doesn’t absorb oils or moisturizer very well (maybe because it’s oily?) so I only wear it at night, and I usually use treatments that will fix my oiliness or scarring as those are my two issues.
The last product I received was the Ayres Body Butter which I gave away pretty quickly. I really don’t use body butter very quickly since it is so thick and as I said, my skin doesn’t absorb anything very well. I really am not a fan of body products and would much prefer nail polish, lipsticks, dry shampoo, etc.
