I recently wanted to try other beauty subscriptions to see how they compared to Ipsy. I didn’t really like SephoraPlay because it was tiny samples and unlike Ipsy you didn’t rate the items. If you do the reviews every month, your items become more specific to what you like. If you get nail polish and don’t like it, rate it low. This has worked for me. For example, I said I like recieving brushes and I have been getting brushes in every bag so far.
Ipsy bags are always themed and these bags are not cheap quality! I was impressed with this months! It is inspired by the popuar Japanese character Gudetama. This super cute character is a lazy egg. Gudetama comes from the same company as Hello Kitty, Sanrio.
I would love to see a marble print Ipsy bag HEHEHE!
IBY BEAUTY CREASE BRUSH
I never heard of this brand. I was happy to get this brush specifically a crease brush because you can never have too many. This is good for creating a cut crease with and/or smoking out that lash line.
( retails for $12 USD )
CAUDALIE VINOSOURCE MOISTURIZING SORBET
I have heard of this brand before and saw it at Sephora. This is good for all types of skin. I wasn’t super impressed with this product. It didn’t feel high-end to me. It isn’t thick but very light.
( full – size retails for $20USD )
CIATE LONDON WONDERWAND GEL-KOHL LINER IN BLACK
I am very familiar with this brand. This product is interesting because it is wood and has a brush at the end? This eyeliner is not what you expect with a wood eyeliner because of it’s gel like consistency. There’s alot of pigment which is so great because it’s hard to find a really great black eyeliner. You use the brush to smudge out the product.
( retails for $18USD )
NOMAD COSMETICS ILLUMINATING HIGHLIGHTER IN MIDNIGHT SUN
I’m not familiar with this brand but I’m so glad I got this product. This was itty bitty but the packaging was nice! This is a beautiful product with a beautiful turnaround.
( retails for I cannot find the price of this product. This looks like a new makeup brand. )
TARTE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA DEEP DIVE CLEANSING GEL
Of course, I heard of this brand! I am disappointed I got this because I have it in full-size. I am not a fan of it. It doesn’t really get everything. The smell is not very pleasing. I will pass this along…..
My July Ipsy bag was great. I don’t have any complaints minus the Tarte cleanser. I hope to get eyeshadows and bronzers in my next bags…. stay tuned for more updates!
