Next we have Ipsy, with Ipsy the monthly commitment is $10 and you get an array of sample size beauty, skin and hair products to try along with a cute bag that is based upon a theme that month. I was drawn to this not only because of the price ($10, that’s giving up a couple of vanilla latte’s or whatever drink you normally get). Instead of spending it on nothing tangible, you may just find your next fave product. Or if you’re the thrifty type and don’t need all these bags you can use them for gift bags and give away things you haven’t used etc. I think on paper, this is a win-win. YEAH!
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Liner in Plushie – Love the purple, very deep and smudge-able. I have used Urban Decay’s eye liner before but am a liquid liner gal. I enjoy the different color, and would buy again as an alternative to my norm. All in all I really enjoyed it.
Coastal Scents Shadow Palette Set 8 – This sample eye palette was a great addition, easy to throw into my bag if I will be glamming up elsewhere. The colors included are Candlelight, Elven Midnight, Deep Eggplant, and Vibrant Blue. All very pigmented colors that didn’t require many passes to obtain the shades that I have swatched. I haven’t worn them for long so am unsure about its longevity or if they crease, but will update again at a later date.
Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo – I used this lotion as a sort of highlighter under my brow for a subtle hint of shimmer and love it. Simple to use and not over the top. I really like it for some basic highlighting and giving a few spots usually forgotten a little Glo.
Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner – I use this when I’m getting ready in the a.m. Not too heavy but a nice lip balm sort of product that I put on before lipstick, crayon, etc. not anything that I’ve noticed that makes a huge difference but it feels nice. I’d get it again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – this didn’t blow my hair back or anything, lol. This dry shampoo seemed to do about the same as many others that I’ve tried. I have very dark hair and the white always seems to stick out, no matter how much I brush my hair. I’ll use this in a pinch, sparingly. But I don’t think I would buy this again.
