This month’s ipsy theme is Beauty Blast, and the included makeup bag might be my most favorite yet. When I saw the bag, I almost didn’t care what was in it. The galaxy print was just so wondrous!
If you’re new to ipsy, it is a monthly beauty sample bag with 4-5 random products each month. You also earn points for shares & reviews and can redeem those points for pretty things – like more makeup! It’s only $10/month and you can cancel anytime. Click here to sign up.
I liked mostly everything in this month’s glam bag, and the one thing I couldn’t use, I passed on to my sister. I also received a deluxe sample of Amazing Cosmetics Concealer that I didn’t include in this picture because I redeemed my ipsy points for it (and I forgot to snap a pic!). That’s another plus of joining ipsy – you earn points for each bag you receive + review, which can add up quickly. Besides the concealer, I have also redeemed points for makeup brushes, Too Faced Foundation and NYX Butter Lipstick.
Let’s see what’s inside this month:
Novex Haircare Brazilian Keratin Deep Conditioning Treatment
This came just in time. I’ve been wanting to purchase a replacement deep conditioner as my hair is in need of some maintenance. It claims to restore shine and smoothness, so I can’t wait to give it a try!
Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer
I’m excited to try this highlighter. The packaging is really cute and I’ve never really tried Jelly Pong Pong. I have one eyeshadow pencil that is just ok, so I can’t wait to see how this fares.
Smashbox Cosmetics Full Exposure Mascara
This is the one item I didn’t like because I can only use waterproof formulas. Allergies + watery eyes = only use waterproof mascara.
INSPR Beauty Eye Shadow in Carnival
This is a nice gray-brown shade that I will absolutely use. I’ve never heard of this brand, and it’s always fun to be introduced to something new.
tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Chili Red
Although I wish I hadn’t received a bright red, it is a pretty shade and I can tone it down by mixing it with another color.
