October Ipsy Bag Review
Priyanka November 10, 2014
I received a nice variety of items for my October Ipsy bag. 4 of the 5 were brands I had never tried before!
1.) Skyn Iceland Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths - This was the item I was most excited to try in my September bag. Sadly, it was a bit of a disappointment because I really, really didn't like the scent of the product. This is more of a personal choice and not a performance issue since the I liked the lather from the cloths. It cleaned my makeup quickly and is a great alternative to those long nights! Luckily I can pass this along to my mother who liked the scent! Not a bad product, but not something I would purchase.
2.) Figs & Rouge Hand Cream in Rose Berry - I was excited to see a product from overseas-this cream is made in the UK! I also think the packaging is adorable. But I wasn't a huge fan of the scent (or really the scent that was left behind behind after the lotion dries.) Also, the formula is unlike anything that I've used. The cream is not greasy, but my hands felt dry as I put it on. An interesting item, but not one that I would purchase again (I prefer L'Occitane's shea butter hand cream!)
3.) Jessie's Girl Mineralized Baked Shadow Powder in Kiwi Shine - I love the marble look of the shadow with the green and gold mixed together, but this is definitely not a fall color, or a color I would choose for myself. I wish I had gotten the Plum Frost (how pretty is that!) It was really hard to get some color out of it. Quick tip-mix with water for a more dramatic look (you can see the difference in color above.) I prefer gold, nude/brown and purple shades in general, so not sure how much use this will get. I'll save for the spring and try it again then.
4.) City Color Be Matte Lipstick in Cappuccino - I love getting lip products through Ipsy, but every month I hope for a dark color. With that being said, this lipstick was my favorite product this month and the Cappuccino shade is definitely something I would reach for when purchasing a new lipcolor! I love the matte finish and pigmented color and it seems to last. It's the perfect neutral but I've already gone on the site to search for the perfect fall colors (loving Francesca and Mauve!) It's such a great price too-can't wait to try out some others!
5.) Ecru Acacia Protein BB Cream - I've never tried anything like this before, and I was pleasantly surprised! Love that this is color safe too! I applied a small amount to my damp hair and it really got rid of frizz! My hair looks smoother without that greasy look that some products may leave. Apparently, this this is part of a new collection and I would love to try the other products.
So far, this has been my least favorite Ipsy, but I'm not complaining! I love being able to try new products for a great price. I'm looking forward to next month's glitter themed bag! If you're interested in checking out what Ipsy is all about, I'd appreciate if you used my link!
