It is that time of the month – unboxing of subscription boxes! I have been getting Ipsy boxes for about three months now and am enjoying them quite a bit. There always seems to be something fun. If not, the bags are always adorable (not that I really NEED any more bags though!).
In case you do not know about Ipsy – It is a monthly beauty subscription box – $10 month and you can cancel when you want. You get 5 products each month and a (usually very cute) bag! If you are not signed up and want to investigate, click here. It is a really fun subscription service (one of the only ones that I consistently keep).
Here is what I got this month and what I think of the product:
Acure Brightening Facial Scrub – Nice face scrub that left my skin feeling refreshed. Not sure of the impact of it yet but it felt like it was doing something good!
Pixi by Petra Brow Powder Trio – When I first opened my Ipsy bag, I thought this was an eye shadow trio and wondered why it did not transfer well. But, of course, that was wrong. It is a brow trio and a rather nice one too. The neutral color is a nice addition to help clean up around the brow area.
tre”StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude – This is a very neutral or nude color that just does not show up on my lips in a flattering way. I have found that it works well as a base for other colors though!
Temptu Highlighter in Champagne Shimmer – A very shimmery liquid highlighter. So very pretty but too pink/peach for my coloring and also probably too shimmery. Pretty none the less!
Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow Trio – This was a surprise to me – it is really nice! The colors are rather pigmented, not much fall out, and they blend fairly well (but not as nice as some other higher end ones). The colors are very pretty and work well for me as long as I go light on the shimmery shade. I was pleasantly surprised!
So what did you all get in your Ipsy bags this month? I am also going to share my first BirchBox soon!
Here is my video review of my Ipsy bag. Please sub to me on YouTube too!
Thanks All! Until next time…have great days and evenings!
