I had a great time testing out some new products from my Ipsy March bag! I had heard of most of these brands, but never tried any of my picks! I was excited to get more skincare this month; as much as I love getting new makeup, I always seem to get the same items.
1.) Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind Illuminating Face Highlighter
I think I've found my new obsession. This highlighter offers the perfect dewy shine that finishes off any makeup look. It is suggested to apply the highlighter on top of blush, and you can also highlight the t-shape for added shine (forehead, nose and chin!) Though I wasn't particularly looking forward to trying this, the highlighter ended up being my favorite product this month! Sadly sold out online at the moment but will hopefully be restocked. Can't wait to try some other products as well!
2.) Boo Boo Cover-up in Medium
A little goes a looong way with this product. It blended in perfectly with my skin-so glad Ipsy matched me with the perfect shade! Since I didn't have any blemishes at the moment, I used this as an under eye concealer and it worked great! I will definitely get this out again when I get a breakout or a bug bite (since bugs seem to love biting my face!) This was another product that I didn't know anything about, but is now one of my favorite Ipsy items!
3.) NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk
At first glance, I was a little hesitant about this color-it looks so purple. But just as the name implies, this lippie goes on like butter and does not provide a lot of pigment when first applied (which is good for me as I'm still getting used to dark colors!) This is one of those products that you need to build up the color. This is a nice transition shade, so it will get worn over the spring. So glad to finally get a darker shade from Ipsy! This isn't my favorite color, but I would be open to trying other shades!
4.) Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion
As someone prone to oily skin, I can use any help getting rid of shine. I loved this sample. I used a very little amount and found that it was easy to spread. The benefits lasted quite a while-even through a visit to the gym! This is an item that I will definitely be reaching for now that warm weather is heading our way.
5.) Pur-Lisse Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser
I've tried the Pur-Lisse brand before through Ipsy, and while this was a nice cleanser, it wasn't anything special. I do like that my face didn't feel dry or stiff after using it, and it seemed to remove my makeup. This product is supposed to remove any makeup, so I'll have to try it on my products that don't seem to come off!
Overall, another great month for Ipsy. I've added a few must have products to my collection that I will probably purchase again. And the floral bag is the cutest. Now I'm looking forward to what April will bring!
