It`s that time again...ipsy bag review! I got my bag last week and since I`ve already tried out each of the products (with one exception) I thought I`d write a review on the products for you all!
*The bag itself* : It`s a gunmetal colored bag with studs and feels like pleather. While the size is good and the material feels nice, I personally didn`t really like the look of this bag. The whole theme is centered around `Street Style` but I think it`s too plain for the theme.
*BWC sweet lavender lotion (Deluxe sized sample)* : I`m a fan of lavender scents because it really helps to calm the nerves and it`s just so soothing. What I like about this lotion is that it absorbs into the skin without leaving a sticky/greasy residue. This is also the perfect size to put into your purse or diaper bag.
*Be a Bombshell Smooth Criminal Powder (full size)* : I personally have tried many finishing powders but this one particularly was pretty nice. I like using this to set my concealer and it keeps my skin looking fresh while I`m wearing it. I have combination skin so this stuff held up pretty nicely. It`s also the perfect size to put in your travel make up bag.
*Hikari lipstick in Cabernet (full size)* : The packaging is very sleek and clearly has the name of the brand printed on the side and of course has the name of the lipstick printed underneath. Color payoff is great and is the perfect wine color for fall. However, I`m not a fan of matte formulas so this felt like I was putting on lipliner. Putting lipbalm on first helped a bit but I personally don`t like having to go an extra step when applying my lipstick since I like hydrating formulas.
*Pacifica eyeliner in Gunmetal (deluxe sized sample)* : I didn`t bother with opening up this eyeliner because I never wear anything other than black or brown eyeliner. I was really disappointed to get another eyeliner after getting one in my August bag. While I know that I get products based on my quiz results when I joined, I reviewed last month`s eyeliner and made it clear that I wouldn`t consider re-purchasing just because I have enough eyeliner...
*Sally Hansen Miracle Gel duo in Red Eye and Top Coat (full size)* : This is a product that I was really excited to try. I have seen it before and didn`t get around to purchasing so when I saw this in my glamroom, I couldn`t wait to get my bag already! As soon as I got my bag, I applied the polishes and tested them out for a total of 6 days. The box claims that you`ll have color that`ll last for up to 14 days without chipping and unfortunately it didn`t last. The nail polish started chipping after about 2 days of wear. I wash dishes a lot and do chores, give my kids baths and I take showers so it`s not like I can completely avoid doing anything with my hands to keep the polish from chipping.
I like that I got 3 full sized products in this bag but I didn`t like that I got another eyeliner in my bag and it`s a color that I wouldn`t normally reach for. I`m not sure how reviewing the products makes a difference if I still got an eyeliner anyway. I would`ve preferred to get a perfume since I like trying different scents. Hopefully next month will blow me away and I don`t get another eyeliner.
