This month’s Ipsy theme is Glamazon. I keep seeing that word popping up recently.
I am liking this bag this month. The gold has a bit of a sheen to it, and it took me a few to realize the girls on the bag are spelling out “Ipsy”. I like the subtlety! And now, for what came inside…
The serum is: Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum. I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I am really liking the sample. It does make my skin nice and soft almost immediately, doesn’t seem to really have a fragrance, and makeup goes on over it easily. I wish the sample were a bit bigger!
The lip stuff is: Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. Yes! I was hoping to try this stuff out and it didn’t disappoint! Warning: if you have sensitive skin or lips, you might not want to use this. It can get very stingy and prickly! I don’t mind that, however. While the before and after photos I took may not look all that different (and I have NO idea what’s up with the funky stretch effect in the center), in person you can see a difference. Not as though I just went and got major collagen injections, but a nice, more natural look. Oh, and it brings more color to my lips!
The shadow brush is: Coastal Scents Elite Bamboo Collection Medium Shadow Brush. I loveloveLOVE getting brushes in my bag! This one is actually an Ipsy only deal, but the rest of the collection is on sale on the Coastal Scents site for $49.95, half off. The bristles are so soft and I love how well this brush works on my lids! If I could only convince myself I really needed a whole set of these brushes…
The highlighter is: tre’StiQue Mini Highlight Stick in Maldives Luminescent. Creamy goodness. It goes on very shimmery, but once you blend it a bit, it becomes nice and subtle, perfect for a dewy highlight.
The moisturizing cream is: Clark’s Botanicals Age Defying Radiance Cream. It works nicely, and the only scent I can find is a very, very subtle tea scent. Love that. A little goes a long way with this, which is good, as the 1.7 ounce pot will cost you $119.00. If it really works amazingly well, I’d pay that, but I haven’t used this long enough yet to decide.
Pretty great bag this month!
