This month, my Ipsy bag contained 5 products. One of them already came to me in a previous bag. I'll get into that in a few minutes though.
For now, let's see what I got!
|The bag for this month. It smells...plastic-y|
Dr. Brandt | Microdermabrasion
This skin exfoliant is a gentle scrub that softens skin and removes dead skin cells. It helps fine lines, acne marks, and skin discoloration. It works with all skin types.
I tested this product on my hand. It didn't feel too abrasive and had a nice citrus/mint scent. It doesn't seem much different from the other scrubs I've tried. The sample size is pretty decent though, so I'll be able to use it a few times. The full size is quite pricey. I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay $78 when I already have a microdermabrasion tool to use at home.
Elizabeth Mott | pop! goes the shadow
The shadow I got is called Champagne and that's a perfect name for it. It's a light glistening shade with a satin finish.
As I said in my Beauty Box 5 post, eyeshadows are one of the best products to get in a subscription box (in my opinion anyway). This one is full-size and normally retails for $12.99. This eyeshadow looks great on my lids. It's also really easy to apply and blend. I love it!
Urban Decay | 24/7 Velvet Glide-on Eye Pencil
By now, we all know about the 24/7 pencils and how amazing they are. This one is called Black Velvet and it's new. I got the travel size.
Anytime I see Urban Decay in a subscription box, I light up with joy. UD is one of my favorite beauty brands. I like this pencil - it's smooth, has rich color, and actually does glide on. It also has incredible staying power. These pencils will always get my stamp of approval!
Coastal Scents | Medium Shadow Brush
This soft eyeshadow brush is ideal for lid work. It also works great for blending in the crease.
I seriously love this brush. I had one from a previous Ipsy bag and I reach for it a lot. I had no idea the quality would be so good until I tried it. Coastal Scents brushes are very inexpensive, so I wouldn't mind trying more from them.
Starlooks | Luscious Longwear Lip Pencil
This matte lip liner is supposed to last 8 hours and can be worn alone or under lipstick. It's in the shade Naked and has a coral hue. It's described as a perfect nude for all skin tones.
This is another full-sized product (priced at $14)! I usually don't bother with lip pencils too much but I really love the color of this one. I like to wear it alone. It looks great against my skin tone. It's not too sheer or bold, it's just pretty.
So, about the Coastal Scents brush: Ipsy contacted me, let me know about the mess-up, and gave me 2 options: receive ipsyPoints or an extra product in my next bag. I already have a lot of ipsyPoints that I'm not using; therefore, I went for the extra product! I like that they notified me right away, and that they gave me a couple options. Kudos to you, Ipsy!
I really liked this bag. My favorite products were the UD eyeliner and the eyeshadow from Elizabeth Mott. That lip liner is pretty nice too. I don't think I'm ever going to want to unsubscribe from Ipsy!
