This was my first time trying Buxom Cosmetics and I was really looking forward to trying this lipstick! It definitely lived up to expectations. The packaging was darling, and the sample size tube resembles the full size version! The lipstick itself smelled nice, wasn't sticky, felt moisturizing and went on easily. I love the whipped texture. My only complaint is that I've gotten a matte nude in my last few bags, but I'd like to try some of the darker shades. Definitely my favorite April item!
2.) Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic
I'm not one for multipurpose beauty items, but I'll make an exception for this Nudestix Lip + Cheek pencil. This pencil can be used a lip liner, a lipstick, lip balm and a blush! I tried it on as a lipstick/balm and loved the hint of color it provided. Another benefit of Nudestix is that it's made up of all natural ingredients, which makes it great for any type of skin, especially sensitive skin. This pencil will be going in my work bag for on-the-go touchups!
3.) Skinn Cosmetics Bright Eyes Eye Enhancing Eyeliner in
Now this is a product I would have never thought to try if not for Ipsy! The trick is to apply to the inner corners of your eyes to create a bright eyed look. I've tried other products to achieve this look (i.e. eyeshadow), but it's so much easier to apply with a stick. I'd like to try other products rom the Skinn Cosmetics line now!
4.) Nth Degree Moroccan Argan Oil and Keratin Hair Serum
I rarely get hair products through Ipsy, so I'm always excited to see one in my bag. A little goes a long way with this hair serum! The serum should be applied from the middle of your hair to the tips to reduce frizz and increase shine without making your hair appear greasy! This also had a nice, light scent which was a pleasant surprise.
5.) LAB2 Live and Breathe Beauty Just Blending Brush
I like getting brushes in Ipsy bags because I don't buy them otherwise. This brush was soft and applied product beautifully. It's also very sleek looking. On a side note, LAB2 has the cutest website with great tips on how to use their brushes!
Overall another great month of new products! Very happy with my items and now looking forward to seeing what new in May.
