Hey everyone, Happy Thursday. My Ipsy bag came in a few days ago and you know what that means; a monthly review coming at you hot. This bag really kicked off the summer vibes with its’ products. The bag was simple but cute! It had the 60’s/comic vibes to it. These products are not something I normally would buy, so I’m happy I got to try out something new!
Kokie Nail Polish: Gone Rio
This shade is perfect for summer. It is a hot coral more on the pink side. It adds the perfect pop of color. With the bright color it makes my skin complexion appear tanner which is always a plus! It doesn’t chip and it is pretty long wearing! They have so many nail products, I want to try more! The nail polishes are only $6! I think this going to be my new go too.
St. Tropez: Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion
This stuff is very handy. I found this stuff is great for when your foundation is too dark. So I would have to blend my foundation all down my neck where now I can just put the lotion on instead. It feels very light weight and adds the perfect bronze. It doesn’t smell the best but that’s common with fake tanners. This is a great product for summer!
NYX: Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé: Pink Cloud
This is a good drugstore multi-use lippie. The color isn’t one I would buy myself but it’s a cute pink for spring/summer! They have 8 different shades you can pick from though! This formula is very light weight but it isn’t long wearing. It’s just a normal whipped lipstick so it easily comes off on anything and everything you touch. So if you are wearing it, make sure to bring it with so you can touch it up! It has a good applicator which makes it easy for you to line your lips. You can also use this product as a blush. I put just a little onto the apples of my cheeks and blend it out with a damp beauty sponge. It’s a good 2 in 1.
City Color: Shimmer Shadow: Beach Cottage
I’ve been trying to get out of my comfort zone of basic brown tone eye shadows and this green/blue has been great! There are 16 different shades and they are only $4.99!! It’s very pigmented and leaves a metallic finish. It is almost like a creamy powder texture so you don’t have to use a lot of product. If you want a more intense look then wet your brush. It’s easy to blend out and leaves a beautiful finish. I love applying it to the bottom lash line to give it a pop of color. I’m thinking about getting more! They’re totally worth it.
Make Up For Ever: Aqua XL Eye Pencil: M-10 Matte Black
I have a conflicting opinion on this eye pencil. There are are 20 different shades and each one cost $21. I’m going to be honest and say this is not worth the money. There are better drugstore liners out there. The black is a true matte black but the formula just isn’t great. It smears when worn in the waterline and tugs on your lid. If it was me, I’d save my money for something else.
June’s Ipsy bag was interesting! I liked most of the products. What did you guys get in yours?! Have any of you tried any of these products? If you haven’t tried Ipsy, you should definitely check it out! It’s $10 a month for 5 beauty products. I love it and it’s great being able to test out new products every month!
