Alrighty, so I got another Ipsy package this month and it’s time to share with you lovely readers what I got. This package I’m a little ehhhhhhh about, but you can decide for yourselves if these month’s box is yay or nay.
Every package comes with a little makeup bag. I like this idea, but I also find it quite useless because I don’t need so many little bags. I DO adore this month’s bag though. It’s in the shape of an admintions ticket. I think that’s so cute. This first thing is a yay from me. I absolutely love the coral color, the font, and especially the material. It’s like a sturdy leather that seems pretty liquid resistant. As soon as I figure out a use for this bag, I will use it.
This next cute little bottle that looks like it came from a hotel bathroom is a face toner. It’s made in Italy, so that’s pretty cool and it smells kind of like chocolate. Now, I’m kind of picky about what products I put on my face and since I’m already having breakouts from stress, I’ve decided not to use this product yet. I think I may try using it to dampen my eye shadows that tend to be kind of stubborn, but I don’t know. This product is just a ? for me right now.
Here we have another lip care product, and I really can’t get enough of these so I’m down for more and more. The packaging of this product reminds me a lot of Glossier packaging because it is sleek and simple. I like the applicator, but I don’t see much of a difference between this product and any other you could find at the drug store. I think this is a yay though.
This next thing is a nail polish or nail “lacquer”. I haven’t tried this yet but right off the bat this is a nay. The reasons why are because 1) I already have a TON of nail polishes. 2) I have at least 3 polishes in this exact shade. And 3) getting nail polish when you’re expecting face makeup is kind of underwhelming. However, none of these reasons are Ipsy’s fault, and none of these have to do with the actual product itself.
I’ve used so many different polishes from many different brands, and so many claim to be chip resistant and blah blah blah. My hopes for this one being any different from other nail polishes doesn’t exist frankly. I do appreciate the variety of colors in this package though. We went from coral, to yellow, to a blue already.
Next we have a loose powder highlight. I’m super excited to use this because I think it will be gorgeous in my inner eyes, on top of eyeshadow, or to dust on my cupid’s bow. I couldn’t get a very good picture of the actual product because it is kind of messy, but very very sparkly. Its a beautiful champagne color. This is a yay.
And lastly we have this:
I haven’t even taken it out of the wrapper. I am never going to use this. Okay I get it. Unicorns! wow, cute, awesome. No. Not this. The handle has this cartoony rainbows and unicorn sticker material. This brush all around looks cheap and childish. There may be others out there that LOVE this. Those people are probably way more fun than me, but when I pulled this out of my Ipsy package I was horribly surprised. Luck of the draw I guess. The only thing I like about this brush is how the bristles go from white to a soft pink. However I could get the same thing from a Wet n Wild brush collection without the little unicorns staring up at me. Define nay, no way.
Overall, I would say that Ipsy is still a good investment for trying new things. I’m still going to stay subscribed, and I understand it’s a gamble every month. The only thing is that I am going to need more space if I keep getting all these products. One thing I do love about Ipsy is the variety of types of products you get. Thank you for reading, and have a good day!!!
