This will probably be my last Ipsy bag for awhile. I've got too big of a backlog of samples, so even with the price being $10 a month I can't justify adding to the huge pile I have yet to work through.
This month's theme is Floral Fantasy. Inside, I got five products and I also redeemed my ipsy points for a reward this month too. I'm not sure if the products fit the theme, but the bag certainly does! It's not my favorite design ever, I liked it better in preview than in person. My daughter has already claimed it as hers so it will be used and enjoyed.
ACURE - Day Cream, full size $18.99: This is a very nice cream, it doesn't have any kind of sun protection but I appreciate that it's Paraben free, Vegan, Gluten free, Synthetic fragrance free, Silicone free, Phthalate free, and uses fair trade certified ingredients. It's supposed to help combat aging as well. Since it's doesn't protect against the sun, I've been using it at night and it absorbs very nicely.
Chella -Ivory Lace Highlighter, full price $18: I've gotten this before, and passed it along to a friend. You can use it on blemishes and red spots so I might hang on to this one and see if it really will neutralize these little problems. It might also come in handy as a lip liner.
While I don't think I would bother using it to blend down the center of my nose to help make it appear thinner, that is an interesting concept to me. I've always thought mine was a bit too wide, but not enough to actually do anything about it!
NYX - Butter Lipstick, full size $6: There were three different colors that I could have received. While there are some pretty colors in this line, I wasn't particularly drawn to any of them. Pops is the shade I received and it's probably the best of the three for me personally, as the others were probably too bold for me to pull off.
Isn't it pretty? Unfortunately, it's also almost exactly the same shade as my natural lip color. So I will be trying to find someone to pass it on to. I did like the texture and feel of the product, another more flattering shade might be in my future...whenever they go on sale at Ulta again!
Pixie by Petra - This Mesmerizing Duo, full size palette $12: These are pretty shimmery. I've tried to wear them twice but they were a little overpowering both time. I'm by no means an expert on eye make up, quite the opposite in fact, so I have a feeling with a more experience application these would be quite pretty. I plan to keep playing with them, I think I can find a look that works for me.
skyn ICELAND - Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, full size $30: Wearing these for ten minutes, will help firm, tone, brighten and reduce the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles. Eyes are revived, soothed and rejuvenated with highly potent actives and Icelandic glacial water. I haven't tried these yet, but they sound like a nice way to relax at the end of the day.
This was my 1000 point reward from Gallany Cosmetics, a $21.50 value and it's a really beautifully packaged lipstick. The rose gold container feel heavy and lux. I also love the rich Bordeux color.
