This month’s Ipsy bag was pretty good everyone. There’s a few good things I’m excited to use, and others I will definitely use, but am not necessarily excited.
First, I got this dark blue nail polish. I like the packaging of this product a lot. I think it’s sleek and pretty. The color is also something I would definitely wear in the fall/winter. Nail polishes aren’t really my thing right now, so I’m not too excited about this one.
The second thing I got, I thought was a nail polish. It looks just like a nail polish doesn’t it? Well, it’s actually a lip and cheek color. You can use it as both, a gloss and a blush. At first glance, I thought “man, really? Two nail polishes?”, because I don’t usually use nail polishes too often anymore. But taking a look again I saw “Whipped Fouette” and decided to see what this really was. Thank goodness I did. Now I’m super excited to try this out.
And just in case I don’t like the NYX thingy as a blush, they sent me this other one. I love the packaging of this little cutie as well. It reminds me of Benefit.
And I get that these are sample sizes, but I mean, come on. This is really tiny. I am pretty stoked about this color though, because I usually go for darker (more warm) blushes than bright pink ones.
Now, lotions are a weird thing for me. I love to smell them. I love to buy them. But I don’t actually use them. They just hang out around my house. I recently watched a decluttering video on YouTube (big surprise) and this one girl was talking about how she has so many lotions, she decided she was going to use every single one of them before she bought anymore. And I thought “I’m gonna do that too.” I recently fell in love with the scent of Vanilla, so I have a Warm Vanilla Sugar lotion I’m using up right now. I’m thinking I will save this lotion for when I go through my Coconut phase. I am excited to use this though, one day in the future.
The last thing I have to show you all is this mascara. I’m very picky about my mascaras. As you can see, I’m very picky about a lot of things. I don’t know what it is but I’m so afraid of the clumpy eye look. This one is from a brand I never heard of before (which is cool because that’s what Ipsy is all about). I’m hoping that I really like this one. I also love this packaging too. And for you fellow Instagram wanna-be-famous-ers out there, the aesthetic is important, so the packaging is important.
This was everything I got this month. To be completely honest, I haven’t even started using last month’s stuff. So if you aren’t ready to have new thing everywhere, don’t do a subscription like this one. I finally got to a place where all of my things are organized better (which you will see Friday). Just a little disclaimer.
