Hi my loves,
I got my Ipsy Glam Bag in the mail a few days ago so here it is! Denim and all….A few of the brands I was unfamiliar with so I did some further research and have provided extra info below. The fun of subscription boxes like this is trying and discovering new brands.
As usual my Ipsy bag came in the standard metallic bubble mailer, but this month’s bag is a hideous denim with questionable neon orange accents. I really was hoping that after last month’s blue and grey disaster (see here) they would’ve made a recovery in their bag design. I mean yikes!
Ah perfect, this month’s products look much better without that eyesore in the photo. I guess I’m feeling sassy today (and everyday) everyone!
WHAT I GOT:
–Luxie 514 Blush Brush Full Size (retails at $23.57US)
Luxie is a California-based cosmetic brand that is known for their brushes. They are vegan and cruelty-free. I honestly don’t think this brush is anything special- it feels flimsy and the bristles aren’t very dense. I wouldn’t pay full price for it.
–NYX Cosmetics Full Size Butter Lipstick in ‘Ripe Berry’ (retails at $6US)
This is the second plum coloured lipstick I’ve gotten from Ipsy in a few months so I really would have preferred a nude. This lipstick is actually very easy to apply and is a sheer, more ‘natural’ looking plum. It didn’t last through a meal at all so it will need a lot of reapplying throughout the day
–IBY Beauty Highlighter in ‘Bubbly’ Full Size (retails for $12US)
IBY stands for “Inspire By You”. They are a more affordable brand that aims to product trendy, high quality products that are cruelty-free. This is a full-sized product and is the same size they sell online, but it’s actually more the size of a single eyeshadow.
–Dermadeli Rejuventating Toner Spray 10mL deluxe sample (full size is 4oz for $24.99US)
Dermadeli is a scientific-based clean skincare brand that is free of harsh chemicals and cheap fillers. This toner solely contains natural witch hazel, neroli, sea kelp and rose water. It smells lovely and doesn’t make my face feel tight and dry.
–Elizabeth Mott Whatup Beaches Bronzer 0.7g sample size (full size is $25US)
This New York brand originated in 2009 from an on-the-go girl wanting to create time-saving beauty products. The sample size is SO tiny, so it’s a bit hard to play with but the formula feels nice and creamy so far.
There you go loves, did you like this month’s Ipsy post? I did it a bit differently with more background detail than normal. Let me know if you have tried any of these products!
