ipsy- January Review

Bag- silver and I always look forward to these. They are great to store small items in your purse, take traveling, or put in the motorcycle. Quality is always there and I never feel as if it will break apart at the zipper.

Temptu Base Smooth & Matte Primer– I have super oily skin and am willing to try anything 3 times to see if it works or not. Totally glides on smooth and disappears- or so I thought! Once I started going in with a damp beauty blender, this started to ball up & get a little gummy when it mixed with foundation. Just means that I will go back in with a stiff concealer brush to take care of it.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Paradise Blush– This blush might not be 100% the right color, but that isn’t my issue. I have received this brand previously from ipsy and it is always broken! I was still able to pick up enough color without chunks on a blush brush. It is very heavily pigmented. Deff worth your bang for buck with this one if you find the right color foryour skintone. Smooth application, no balls of glitter, just some nice radiant shimmer. Once I went back over with some powder foundation, it blended to a nicer color. Otherwise, a little scary, little 80s.

Star Crushed Mineral Metallic Eyeshadow in Aged to Perfection Champagne– Very pretty very shimmery very GLITTERY! Always always always apply loose eyeshadow with a stiff packing brush and a spritz of Mac’s Fix+. I was so excited about this one, that I had to not stop at using it on my lid. I added a touch of clear gloss and applied as a lipgloss too. Easy to use and happy to try this one! Non-irritating even with those sparkly specs of mica. Score!

SLMissGlam Blend Beauty Brush L34– One of the most interesting brushes! It has 2 little rhinestones near the bristles. A brush after my own heart and it works to blend between a transition shade and browbone highlighter. I think that I am going to have to buy up more of their brushes to test to see if they are all just amazing as the quality of this one. Super Score!

Yes I did receive one more item, the clariSea Instant Glow Lavender Powder Exfoliant, but I would rather prefer not to wash off this look just yet. I’ll let you know later how that one works out.

Overall, I am super happy again with yet another month of this beauty subscription service. What are your thoughts on the look above? Don’t mind the parking lot car pic. Funny part is that weird look as I was just about to pull my iPhone away to figure out why I had that feeling of someone watching me. A fellow Starbucks patron thought I was trying to flirt and take a pic of him. Um nope. But, if it gave him a smile for moment, go right ahead. I’m sure I will read about it later in the Missed Connections section of Craigslist.
