Ipsy’s a monthly subscription. You spend $10 and get five beauty products to try out. Sometimes you even get full sized products which is exciting! After taking a little time to set up your profile (seriously – take your time and do this), each month products are picked specifically for you based on your profile selections.
What Was in This Month’s Bag:
Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin (retail $7.51) – highlighter is still baffling to me. I liked the translucent color and it felt very smooth which is nice. I didn’t notice a big difference when wearing it, maybe a little more shimmery than normal?
Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eye Shadow (retail $11.51) – the pigment in this eye shadow is awesome! Deep tones with a good bit of shimmer. And on top of that, it lasted All. Day. Long. It covered well without having to use a lot which is nice too.
Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen (retail $11.25) – your basic black eye liner. I wasn’t a huge fan because it didn’t go on very smoothly. When I’ve got to really pull the liner across my lid it seems like I mess up more than normal.
Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer (retails $18.00) – This went on well and in the picture there’s only one coat so it covers fairly well too. I’d probably still put two coats on for even coverage and a deeper color but I don’t think you’d have to. Shortly after I applied it, the coat was already dry which is nice. Ipsy seems to send the similar shade a lot (at least to me) so it would be nice to get a different shade every now and again.
Caked Makeup Lip Fondant (retail $18.00) – I like the shade of this. It’s a little darker than I would normally wear but I think after a little tan this summer it’ll work perfectly. After putting it on in the morning before heading to work, it lasted until about lunch time. Certainly something you’ll need to reapply during your day. Not a matte finish but not super shiny either so you may need a clear gloss layer if you’re looking for shine.
