With the move, I was a little afraid my Ipsy bag wasn't coming. I had changed my address on the account, but I didn't know if I had done it on time. Luckily, on Monday it arrived!
BWC (Beauty without Cruelty) Premium Aromatherapy Cleanser (~$2.80 for a 2 oz sample size)
I had never heard of this brand before, but I always like trying new cleansers, so I'm psyched about this one. It smells very... clean. I can't think of another way to describe it. It's not really unscented, but it doesn't smell like chemicals or other cleaners, so I don't know how else to describe it. I'll be curious to see how well it works.
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Marshmallow ($4)
Love this lip balm! It's super smooth feels great on. It's supposedly marshmallow scented, but I'm not smelling it... it doesn't really smell like much of anything which I'm glad about because over-scented lip balms are too much. I also really like that it's not tinted. Most of the lip balms I get through Ipsy are tinted and not always the most flattering of colors. It's nice to get one that I can wear whenever without having to think about it. The other options for the month were tinted ones, so I'm glad I got the color I did.
tarte- Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-one Mascara (~$10 for a .10 oz tube)
Perfect timing on getting this, because I just ran out of my last mascara tube from Ipsy. My favorite part of Ipsy is that I haven't had to buy mascara for the last two years... and it's the one makeup item I wear just about every day. I keep getting expensive mascaras from them, that'd I would never actually buy on my own. I've loved all the other mascaras I've gotten from them, so I'm hoping this is just as good.
Coolway Boost Hair Repair Treatment (~$3.74 for a 1 oz sample)
This smells amazing. It claims it can repair damage from hair products and heat, so I am looking forward to using this since I tend to use my hair straightener on a daily basis (okay, on work days... weekends and vacations are for messy buns and skipping showers). I'm sure using my hair straightener so much is not doing any favors for my already limp and fine hair.
Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust in Brightening Bare ($10)
Not sure about this one... it seems like Fynn should be using fairy dust to play with more than I need it for make up. It's a "glimmer eye dust" that I will most likely never use- unless I decide to attend a middle school dance.
Not a bad Ipsy month- 4 out of 5 products are things I either already love, or I'm really excited to try. The items in the bag were worth about $30.54, as always, way more than the $10 a month I pay for my bag and well worth it since I get to try all kinds of new make up- and never buy mascara :)
