Hi every one!
So I`ve been debating for a long time whether or not to join a subscription service and I finally decided to give it a try. I decided on Ipsy because it`s $10 a month and you get 5 products which can be a combination of skin care and make up. Most of the time you get both full size and deluxe samples and you also get a small make up bag too!
Each month has a different theme so the products you get are different most of the time. Ipsy decided to do something a little different for this month and teamed up with Rebecca Minkoff to create a bag using a print from her current summer collection.
If you`re interested to know what I thought about my first Ipsy bag, please keep on reading!
*The bag itself* :
I like the print and size of the bag but I would`ve preferred for the zipper to be at the top of the bag as opposed to the side.
*Realtree for her perfume (deluxe sample size)* :
It has a flowery scent that I really like for any time of the year (and since I live in Florida where the climate is warm most of the year, I think I can really pull it off!) I like that it has a spray nozzle so I don`t have to be cautious to not spill it. However, I have to really press down on the spray nozzle to get the perfume out.
*Carol`s Daughter Sacred Tiare styling cream (deluxe sample size)* :
The product itself smells nice considering that I don`t like anything the smells like coconut. It feels like a lotion and doesn`t have a sticky residue. I haven`t noticed a big difference with no shedding as the product advertises but I guess it`s something I`d have to try for a longer period of time to see results.
*NYX Butter gloss in Eclair (full size)* :
The pale pink color looks great on my skintone when worn alone. However, when applied over a pink or nude lipliner it doesn`t look as great. Overall, it`s comfortable to wear and doesn`t feel sticky on the lips and has a pleasant vanilla scent too.
*OFRA eyebrow pencil in Universal (full size)* :
This color can be used on any skintone depending on how you apply it. If you use a heavy hand, it comes out dark ; if you use a light hand, it comes out light/medium. You have to have a sharpener on hand because it`s not a retractable pencil. The formula is waxy so it helps to keep your brows in place.
*Nicka K shimmer eyeliner in Blue (full size)* :
Applicator itself is stiff so it makes it a little challenging to apply. Very nice bright blue with tons of shimmer. I swatched it on the back of my hand and immediately stained it..I used 3 different make up removers and I found that the only way to really remove it was the scrub my hand roughly with soap and water. I never applied it on my eyes but I read that other people had the same problem and ended up wearing blue eyeliner for a few days. I even tried using this on top of black gel liner (on my hand again) an it still stained even through the black gel liner!
I contacted Ipsy care about the NIcka K shimmer eyeliner and how it didn`t work for me and they were kind enough to send me a replacement product because they wanted to ensure that I had 5 products to use for the month. I was sent a Laura Mercier caviar stick eyeliner which I absolutely love! I was surprised that I was sent a full size product to compensate for the product that stained my skin. I wasn`t expecting anything but I`m very satisfied with their customer service!
