I am SO extremely happy with this month's iPsy bag! It absolutely blew my mind. My initial reason for switching to iPsy was because I wanted more make-up items as opposed to skin care. I was not disappointed this month!
To give a brief review of the items from last month...
Face lotion - I didn't really find it all that moisturizing. The smell was nice but it made my skin feel "tight" after applying it on. I didn't finish using it, but I will be using it when I go to the gym since I hate bringing my larger cream with me. PURCHASE? No.
Leave-in conditioner - OMG LOVE. My new fave. I will absolutely be getting a full size after this!!! It detangles my hair like crazy and makes it oh so soft!! love love love. definitely a new favourite hair product! PURCHASE? YES YES YES
Cleansing wipes - I used it all. It felt a little bit rough on my skin to be honest =\ however, I did like the convenience of the small pack because I was able to bring it with me to school for a post-workout face wipe. It got rid of regular make-up okay but not the waterproof. PURCHASE? Probably not. Also because my friend bought me some Biore wipes from Asia which I am excited to use!
Eye-liner - I really really liked this! The staying power was amazing and the colour pay-off was great. You can definitely sharpen it so YEAH. It's awesome!! PURCHASE? Possibly. I have no need for new eyeliner but this is definitely something I will check out.
Lip balm - I didn't even touch this all month lol. I guess that says it all! The colour was nice but the lip balm was SO drying... they shouldn't even call it a lip balm. I know I said I would use it over my regular lip balm but I forgot and I don't even want to bother anymore. PURCHASE? No.
ONTO THIS MONTH NOW!!!
Here is the bag it came in this time.
These are all the items together :)
Pop Beauty - Plump Pout Mini in Fuchsia Freesia
0.14 oz - value: $19.02 (after conversion 10.50 pounds)
I really LOVE bright colours for lip. I generally keep a more simple eye look and then pair it with something bright. This will fit perfectly into my make up bag. It looks kind of dull in the picture but it's extremely bright in real life haha. I'm sorry, I suck at picture taking. I really like the packaging of it. The black part has a matte finish which is really nice. It smells kinda gross... like plastic.. lol It feels very moisturizing though and the colour is very nice. My make-up is not made right now, otherwise I would take a picture. I don't know about the lip plumping power but I really quite like this. My hair barely sticks to it which is a bonus!
Tini Beauty - Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base in One in Violette
0.14 oz - value: $18.00
I'm so happy I got a colour that matches my eyes!! I have brown eyes, so obviously purple is the best for me. It's a little bit lighter than it looks in the picture. I seriously need to get into photoshop or something. Anyways... I've swatched it on my hand and it's super creamy. The colour pay-off is quite nice. I can definitely see myself wearing this a lot. A bonus is that it's so easy to bring around with you since it has a wand! It also has a slight shimmer to it. Very pretty.
Zoya - Professional Lacquer in Dot
0.5 fl oz. - value: $9.00
This. Is. Awesome. I've always wanted to try Zoya nail polish but it's not in Canada as far as I know, and they don't ship to Canada. The polish is 3-Free which is always a plus in my books. I'm a little bummed I didn't get the purple one (Odette) because I have so many pinks already! It's a cute pink nude on my skin tone.
J. Cat Beauty - Eyelashes + Glue in EL 13
2 lashes and glue - value: $3.99
I was excited for this and not. I didn't get one of the more "fuller" lashes which I would have preferred. I already have sparse lashes! Nonetheless, I am excited to try this out. It's 100% human hair, which may freak some people out, but I think that it's really cool. I usually use fake ones that are made with plastic so maybe these ones will look extremely natural! I also love that there is eyelash glue included. I usually use the Duo ones but I like to try new things!
Skyn Iceland - Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud
0.28 oz. - value: $6.50
This is the only non-make-up item in my bag and I am a-okay with it! If I receive things that are "skin-care" related, I prefer it to be things like face masks... things that I would not use every day. I'm super excited about this because it's supposed to detox and brighten your skin. There are 2 packs because it's a 2 step mask. The first step is blue clay. You put this all over your face post-cleansing. Step 2 is an activating gel that you apply on top of the clay and it's supposed to start to effervesce, which means gives off bubbles, and start to foam. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then wipe it off with a damp cloth!
Total value of iPsy glam bag: $56.51
Overall, (if you can't tell) I am super happy with this bag! I can't wait to see what else iPsy has to offer. I also love the fact that a lot of the products are from the UK and they are NOT items that are marked as "sample. not for resale". Thank you iPsy for a fabulous bag this month.
