Natalie’s May Ipsy Bag review

The Bag

May Ipsy glam Bag

I am on the fence on this bag. I like the idea of it but not necessarily the design I got. I am not a huge fan of the color purple so that’s the main reason. I will definitely use this bag. The size is comparable to other bags we have received but nothing out of the ordinary.

Smashbox X Rated Mascara

2016-05-16 06.54.05
ALL Smashbox mascaras are amazing. This one is no
exception. The brush was a bit interesting. I actually stopped to look at it in detail before
applying the product because it was such an odd shape. It applied well and I was able to also use it on my lower lashes with no product hitting my cheeks or under eye area. I really like this mascara and will definitely use it.

Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer

2016-05-16 06.55.26

 I adore Hikari products! I got the blush in my Ipsy bag a few months ago and it is now one of my go to products when I want a bright pink blush with great pigmentation. This product was no exception. I applied this product this morning for a general overall flush effect and it worked beautifully. The four colors in the compact blend well together and give a beautiful pink/brown color. There are little sparkles in one corner and that adds a bit of shimmer to the overall effect which I love. I highly recommend this product and Hikari products in general. Love it!

INSPR Eye Fluff Brush

Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 12.06.58 PM

I used this today to apply my shadow in the crease. It worked really
well and applied the product evenly. I can always use a good crease brush and this is a perfect addition to my collection. The bristles are soft and pick up a decent amount of product with just one swipe.

Soo AE 3 Collagen Essence Sheet Mask Set

Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 12.08.30 PM

I am giving this away because I honestly won’t
use it. I will most likely try to trade it with someone for something I will actually use and if not, will give it away as a gift. I know Ipsy is always trying to promote new partners but seriously? I won’t use this. Never have and probably never will. Stop sending me stuff I specifically say I will not use, please. UGH.

Epice Hydrating Mask

Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 12.09.08 PM

Yet another product I will not use. I will try to trade it to someone for something better. I am frustrated with this month’s selections as this is the second item I will not be using/have no use for. Yes, it’s only $10 a month for this stuff but I want to get things I will actually use and not throw/give away. What a disappointment

Natalies’ April 2016 Ipsy Bag Review

The Bag:

2016-04-18 16.31.39

Not my favorite bag in terms of looks but still a cute one. There have been
others I have loathed getting but this one is not one of them. I will definitely be using it in
the future.

13023496_10154122191967171_1420743306_n
L.A.B. Live and Breathe Beauty “Just Blending In” brush

The brush is a nice size, blending brush. The bristles are soft and pick up product well. I was able to use this brush as both a transition shade brush and an accent shade brush. I can definitely see myself using it regularly. It is not as soft as say a Morphe brush or even an ELF brush but it is still a nice texture.

13015067_10154122191962171_669850677_n

Nudestix Lip & Cheek Pencil in “Mystic”

The product comes in nice packaging and applies
smoothly. It almost has a cream finish look to it. That makes sense as it is also being marketed as a blush. I only had to apply once around the lips to get a great color payoff. Overall a great nude lip product.

13020339_10154122191957171_1642309646_n
Ren Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream

Wow! This product is amazing! I was
a little skeptical about it when I first opened it but after applying it, I know I will purchase it in the future! The lotion has a semi strong scent that fades after applying and the product goes on smoothly and easily. Usually when I apply my face cream, it takes two attempts before my skin feels moisturized and not “tight”. That was not the case at all with this product. I could feel it absorbing into the skin and when I woke up with morning, it was still doing the job and my skin felt incredible. I love this lotion!

13022397_10154122191972171_614393653_n
Buxom Cosmetics Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid lipstick in “Centerfold”

This product is…interesting. It is being marketed as a liquid lipstick and it really isn’t. I would compare this product and consistency to the Maybelline Vivid Matte liquid lipstick. It goes on smoothly, like a gloss, but does appear matte. It does not dry the lips and the color payoff is great. I am just thrown off by the label of “liquid lipstick” as it isn’t. I love the brand and wear products of theirs but in this case, would prob not purchase this again as it is so similar to the Vivid Matte lipsticks. Maybelline is cheaper. 🙂

Moroccan Oil Moroccan Oil treatment

I’ve used this product in the past. It is nice but not for
me. I already have healthy hair and don’t need this product. I didn’t even use this. I traded it for a lipstick from someone else who also gets Ipsy. I also don’t really like the scent either.

Looks like Natalie had a great bag this month! How did you like yours?

June Ipsy Bag Review

IMG_1486
FullSizeRender(5)
wpid-2015-06-23-09.57.21.png.pngwpid-img_20150612_1-1.jpgReview time again! We love this time of the month! Meg actually came back from wedding activities on the East Coast to this little pink mailer, and after hours of traveling and days of wedding festivities,  It was a nice treat to see this in the mail box.  Actually, we were reminded a bit of a really cute summer bathing suit, gotta love that combo of black neoprene and bright coral. Our bags were actually quite different this month, which is a nice change of pace.
FullSizeRender(4)Liptitude Limited Edition 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain
Blake- I loved how this felt on my lips. It felt like it was hydrating and cooling at the same time. The color was a bit orange red which is fine as a base color. Though watch not to smudge because like the name it is a stain. I give this three ipsy bags
FullSizeRender(6)
Sorry about the grainy photo! (for color)
Meg- I have no idea what color this is officially. Unofficially, it’s a bright (bright) deep pink. It looks like a gloss on but be mindful when applying it. They aren’t kidding when they call it a stain.  It’s a fun color, I have a dress that is just begging to be worn with it. The downside is trying to keep it in place. It smears easily and stains easily so it will take a lot of work and will power to keep it in place. I tried wiping the bulk of it away after ten minutes and was left with patchy stains. They smoothed out with some lipgloss and I feel like that might be the way to go. I’ll keep experimenting because I really do love how bold the color is.
IMG_1486 copyTrestique Mini Shadow Crayon in Marimoto Pink Pearl.
  Meg- I’m in love!  it is an amazing shade. I’m going to wear it to work tomorrow. Cute package (I really thought the cap had fallen off and I was searching for it…hey, I’m still on east coast time…let’s see how long that excuse lasts) Easy to apply, stays put nicely. A winner! (Don’t feel bad Megs, It happened to Paige too)
FullSizeRender(3)Trestique Gold Lipstick
Blake- I love this color it’s like a beige gold that gives a little shine to you lips. It also feels very smooth and not chalky. I give this three Ipsy bagsFullSizeRenderNuxe Paris Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Rose Petals
Blake- This goes on very smooth and does have some exfoliating beads which is not to harsh on my skin. It really is gentle an smells amazing.  I give this four Ipsy bags
FullSizeRender(1)Befine Cucumber Facial Mask
Blake– This mask feels and smells amazing. When I put it on I just felt to fresh and so clean. It also did not make my skin dry up when I washed it off. I give this four Ipsy bags.
Meg- No really?  With cucumber?  I never would have guessed from the name.  I’m not the most objective person on this one since I find the smell of cucumber offputting.  It went on well. I kept expecting to encounter fine grit but it was really smooth. Kind of a pain to get off though. I really had to scrub and still, I looked in the mirror and saw little white streaks in random places.   Not one I plan to put into my wish list but interesting to try.IMG_1486Jules and Ester Facial Serum No. 24
Meg- It says it contains vitamin C and the faint whiff of citrus is very pleasant. Absorbs quickly and cleanly into my skin and doesn’t feel really heavy.  As to reducing the signs of aging, well, after two cross country flights, three days of wedding festivities, and 90 degree humidity I have a really tough case. I don’t know that anything could help today…
FullSizeRender(2)Smashbox Foundation Primer
  Blake– I first wanted the Melted lip gloss but wow I love how this primer feels. I mean it feels so smooth going on. Like I have said in the past, I love to wear makeup that doesn’t feel heavy and this primer feels like I’m wearing nothing. The only down fall is the size. It is tiny. It seems smaller than a sample or travel size. For the product I would give five Ipsy bags but for the size I have to subtract down to four Ipsy bags
Meg- This has been a standard in my makeup box since discovering the joys and the horrors of uneven foundation many (many) years ago. It’s been my go to primer for everything from formal pictures to performances to date night. It hasn’t let me down yet and I love having the little travel size to take with me. Where were you last week when I was trying to cram all my makeup into a carry-on?
Paige- Like Blake, I really wanted the Melted sample, because I don’t wear primer often. But upon seeing this little gem in the bag, I was still really excited. (I have heard Megs talk about this since it came out YEARS ago) The size is a bit small, but the full size is also small for what you pay for it. It went on really smoothly and stayed on all day, but because I don’t wear this kind of product often, I don’t know if I would be comfortable plunking down a good chunk of change for it at Sephora. wpid-img_20150623_2.pngAltcheck Dermitologist MD DePuff Eye Pads
Paige- I don’t usually use this type of product because wrinkles have not been high on my list, but dark circles are a huge issue with me. I was wondering if it might help with brightening those as well as hydrating the area. They worked very well, and I was impressed. If the circles were not gone, at least the area was moisturized and better looking. wpid-img_20150623_4.pngwpid-20150623_090715-1.jpgtreStique Mini Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine
Paige- This was a good color for me and a nice change from all the copper colors from Ipsy that I have been receiving lately. The packaging was adorable, and like others, I thought the cap had fallen off and went on a hunt for it. The formula is awesome, I have a greasy eye lids (I don’t have another way to say that, I know its gross, sorry) It stayed all day and didn’t really budge. I love the color as well!
wpid-img_20150623_3.pngFormula X Nail Color in Power Source
Paige- This is a great Summer Color, and I am really happy with the formula. The ONLY issue I had with this was that it was that the brushes in these tiny bottles are very small and don’t coat nails well. But I managed to make it work and I’m happy with the product.
wpid-img_20150623_6.pngIT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil
Paige- Brow pencils are not something I use often because I have thick brows, but when I do need one, now I have something to reach for. It worked well, and I like the attached brush (because I DO use those). I have dark brows, but even though the color seemed light in the pencil, it seemed to work well. Overall, its a good product that will get use, but rarely.
All in all we were really happy with this bag! Blake gave it 18 Bags out of 25, and we are all happy with the value for this month.
Happy June! Enjoy the Beach This Month!

Generation Beauty Day Two- Write up by Blake and Guest Blogger Erica

Generation Beauty by Ipsy Day 2!

Breakfast of Champs
Breakfast of Champs
IMG_0298
We’re up we’re up!

This was so much more organized then the first day. (Can I get a whoop whoop?) The second day came with more freebies, like Too Faced matching your skin tone and giving you a full foundation. You heard me right, a full size foundation! There was also Smash Box, who gave us not one but TWO full sized eye liners. But the best vendor by far was Tarte. We love their products and surprise, surprise, they did have items for sale. Well, they had select items for sale, (about 12) but they were offered at a 60% discount.  YAY.

The pros are in!
The pros are in!

It felt like we were pros on day two and knew exactly what to do. The event ran much more smoothly, which told us that the Gen Beauty hosts and volunteers were paying attention to the issues from the day before. They were all very nice, and spent time asking us what we thought worked from the day before and where we had problems.

IMG_0300
Unique Beauty Wall

Even though this day was run much better, we felt like we had seen most of what we needed to see on day one. We did get to look around more since it seemed that there were fewer people, and shorter lines, and we even got the chance to buy stuff! (Shopping? Uh, YES)

IMG_0384
Goodies!

So, in the afternoon, when we were finally handed the key to the world, our Day Two Glam Bag (choir singing in the background…) we decided to head home.

2015-06-09 22.09.11
Erica is rocking that grey lipstick!

In the beginning, with all the confused craziness, it was frustrating, but once we got a handle on things, we actually had a fantastic time! Will I go again? Uh HECK YES, whether I am by myself or with my amazing friends.

Yup, we're happy
Yup, I’m happy

Oh and I forgot the best part, the savings! Between the glam bags from both days and freebies we received the amount was (drumroll please)

$551.18 !!
And, I got it all for free!!!
2015-06-09 22.08.37
Bag of awesome

Now, for the items I spent money on. The in-store cost of everything would have been $257.93, but I only paid $128.10, so in the end I saved $129.83, on what I purchased. However, if we want to look at the whole shebang with all the freebies and the discounts, what outrageous numbers would we have?

If I HAD paid for everything in the glam bag at retail price it would have been, $809.11, for a TOTAL SAVINGS OF $681.01.
UNBELIEVABLE RIGHT? These numbers, just blow my mind. I love to save, and Gen Beauty helped me do that, I can’t wait until next year when the whole team will go with me!!
If you have any questions or know of other events like this, please comment and let us know. Now on to the next beauty review!

May Ipsy Bag

2015-05-11 21.41.16 IMG_1159 PART_1432157856233_IMG_3724

Well, we LOVE THIS BAG! It’s so cute and we love the functional strength of the canvas, though we all thought it seemed a little cheap feeling once we opened it.

So- Here goes!

2015-05-11 21.43.53 2015-05-11 21.58.12

Pixi By Petra Beauty Bronzer in Summertime

Paige– I really like this bronzer. The formula is soft and silky going on, and it is also very sheer. It makes for a perfect daytime look when swept over the cheekbones. (It also softens the look of my sunburn from this weekend)

Blake– I haven’t been big on bronzers but lately I have been trying to learn the art of contouring and this is the perfect product to learn with. It goes on very light which is a must for me. I will give this product 4 Ipsy bags.

2015-05-11 21.45.00

Bella Pierre Waterproof Gel Eye Liner in Ebony

Paige– I don’t like the Bella Pierre line very much, and this is really no exception. This smears way to easily and is very greasy on me. I found this had smudged and traveled by the time I made it into work. The color was a nice strong black though for the first 45 minutes or so.

Blake– So, this weekend, I took my mom to DragCon, and thought that this would be a great opportunity to try this little baby, and boy am I glad I did. I generally don’t really like pencils because the color, over time, becomes dull to me but this one was outstanding. First it glides on like a liquid eyeliner which I love and the color lasted all day. Only defect is where you put it is where it stays. I give this product 4 Ipsy bags.

2015-05-11 21.42.54

Bare Republic Natural Mineral Sunscreen in SPF 30

Paige– I always love to see sunscreens in my bag. It’s a product I use EVERY DAY, so I’m stoked to try this one out. It was very light and sunk in really fast. I really like this one!

2015-05-11 21.42.44

Nuxe Paris Reve De Miel- Face Cleansing and Make-up Removing Gel

Paige– This was an interesting brand that I have never tried before. The product works as it says it will, and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. But OH THAT SMELL, it’s GOT TO GO… Pungent is the only term I can use to describe it, like horrible incense.

FullSizeRender 2015-05-11 21.42.23

Urban Decay Revolution High Color Lip Gloss and Ozone 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Ultimate Ozone

Paige– I got two samples of the lip gloss, one in the shade Bittersweet, which was scary in the packet, but actually a kind of pretty pink purple when on and would be a great date night color. The other shade was Failbait, which is a PERFECT pink and is a great color to wear on a daily basis. As for the liner, I did not see a difference when using it under the gloss, but I also don’t use lip liner on a regular basis so I wasn’t really sure what to look for. (Sorry about the flash guys!)

Meg– The two colors came with the pencil. One is useful (Failbait) and one fun to put on in makeup experiments (Bittersweet). So the pencil is supposed to go on first and fill in lines, keep everything in place, and stay creamy. I honestly could not tell the difference on the half of my lips that I used the pencil and the half I didn’t.  I really like that they showed the other colors available. I’d love to try 69 and Quiver. On the other side was an ad for another of their products (sheer revolution lipstick) which I now really want to try. I’m a huge Urban Decay eyeshadow fan and am glad for the chance to try their lip line.

Blake– First off I love Urban Decay so I was very excited to receive one of their products. The thing is I don’t wear enough lipstick to try the product so I waited until I went to DragCon. This product makes me want to wear lipstick every day. I put it on and waited for it to set then applied my lip color. I will say it didn’t last 24/7 but it did last about 5 hours on me and I was eating and drinking too. Not only was I happy, but some of the queens were asking how my lips looked flawless. Ha! I give this product 5 Ipsy bags.

Skone Pretty Eyes Automatic Eye Liner in Navy:

Meg– It goes on well and smudges nicely. It says navy, but it is a really bright navy. I wish it was a bit darker so that I could use it for everyday, but this will be fun for girls nights out in flirty dresses

FullSizeRender(2)

Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches

  Meg– I got two. I don’t know if that was a mistake or not, but I’m glad. They feel nice on and while I can’t really see any differences, they definitely are soothing.

FullSizeRender(1)

It Cosmetics CC+

Meg– Goes on nicely. Doesn’t smell very strongly like some other CCs I’ve tried. I love that it’s 50spf.

FullSizeRender(3)

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave-in Conditioner:

 Meg– It doesn’t smell very good. That is the first thing I noticed. It smells like chemicals. On the plus side, my hair is softer with it in.

PART_1432157856233_IMG_3724

Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream and Peter Lamas Detoxifying CitrusC Facial Cleanser
Blake– Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream- I absolutely love this product. I get a little skeptic about hair products because usually they leave an oil aftermath. This product left my hair smooth,shinny and silky. I just dab a little on my hands and work it through my damp hair after I shower and the end result is amazing. I give this product 5 Ipsy bags.

Peter Lamas Detoxifying CitrusC Facial Cleanser- I’m not really big on cleansers because my skin is very sensitive and will breakout or turn my skin red. This one didn’t do this it just made my skin super dry. I give this product 1 Ipsy bag.

March Ipsy Bag Unbagging

FLOWER POWER!

 25472015-03-16 06.49.43FullSizeRender copy

IPSY is a monthly subscription bag that is $10 a month for monthly subscriptions. The cost lowers as you subscribe for longer. Each month you will receive 5 deluxe or full size beauty samples and a cute makeup bag designed exclusively for Ispy subscribers.

Flower Power was the theme for March’s Ipsy Bag, and while it is a cute for spring, we were a tad disappointed that it was not St. Patrick’s day themed. (Only because green is one of Paige’s favorite colors).That Being said, one of our favorite parts of Ipsy is the fun bags that the products come in every month. So, while this month’s wasn’t our favorite design ever, we liked the blue and yellow combo with the pops of pink.  It makes us think spring is actually on the way.

Reviews

Paige- I was the only one who received the Sexy Hair Argan Creme Oil, and it intrigued me. I use oil on my hair regularly, but hair creme is something new to me. It is meant for use as a blow dry agent, but it might be more useful to me as a setting creme, since I am more likely to curl my hair than blow dry it. It does have a micro sheen to it though, so beware if you are not a fan of micro glitter. It also seemed to take some of the sheen out of my hair, which is weird since the shine seems to be built into the product. The Price I found was $7 on Amazon For the travel size.

I  also received Dr. Brandt Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion. This is not something that I have used in the past, so I’m pleased to see it in this bag! I am almost at the end of a sample of a similar product and I have heard rave reviews about this brand, so I’m really excited to try it out. Estimating at $15 for the sample since a 1.7 oz can be found on Sephora for $60

IMG_20150317_1Paige-I LOVE Lip gloss, in fact, I hoard it like its going out of style. Lipstick, however, isn’t really my thing. Oh but THIS NYX Butter Lipstick in Little Suzie,  goes on SO smooth and glossy. I might be converted if all lipsticks felt like this! Bonus- Its full size! $6 on NYX Website

Megan-I really like NYX, Its affordable and has great pigmentation. Pops NYXExplosif is a great neutral color! Its more a stain than a lipstick. I love that it glides on so well, but the shine doesn’t last long. I might use it under a lip balm that will be refreshed throughout the day or as a base under a gloss.  I have a feeling this will become a staple for me.  Next time I see NYX, I’ll be looking for a slightly lighter shade of this exact thing.

BLAKE-  At first sight I was disappointed because my skin doesn’t normally mesh well with dark colors. However I did a total 360 when I put on this lipstick. Holy cow! I love how it goes on my lips so smooth, like butter! Ha! Just like in the name. This plum color is not as dark as it reads in the tube, which is also a plus. I would wear this out and about. If I was going to rate this item I would give it 5 Ipsy bags, stars, whatever.

2015-03-16 06.53.56Paige- Ipsy hit this one out of the park for me, since I LOVE copper eye shadows. I feel like the color highlights my green eyes perfectly.  This Marsk eyeshadow is Lucky Penny, and lives up to its name. It was easy to apply, no blending or fancy brushwork needed here. It reads dark at first glance, but goes on sheer and is easily build-able if you want a more dramatic look. This is also a spectacular color for those blue eyed gals. Full Size at 1.2 Grams and $22.50 on Marsk Website

Megan-I also got the Marsk shadow, in Fifty Shades. You’ll need a lot of layering to get to a deep gray because it goes on sheer.  I like to use multiple colors and blend them together on the lid, so I want shadow to go on in the color it appears to be immediately, not after 10 layers (who has the time?).  That being said, if you’re like Paige, this is a very nice, easy way to get a shimmer of gray across the entire lid quickly and walk out the door.  Used that way it is good for the office.  Bring it with you, add a few more coats before leaving the office and you can have a fun evening out with the girls and get a  pop of color without veering into Gothic territory.

2015-03-16 07.00.42Paige- If I’m being totally honest, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do with this highlighter because the color is much lighter than I usually use, and goes on thick,  so if you guys have suggestions, please let me know! It might come in handy for Inner eye brightening, a base for pastels, or lining my water line when I want to look more awake. Full Size is $16.74 on Amazon

Megan- Ah, the highlighter pencil that I can’t read.  This is my least favorite product of the bunch.  Good color for brow highlighting, but it went on sort of heavy (it either went on heavy or not at all) and didn’t blend well.  When it’s near the delicate skin of my eyes, it needs to blend easily and go on smoothly.  It will go into the pile of costume makeup for when I need super bold looks, but this is definitely not going into my everyday wear.

Blake-This highlighter is the one that did not work for me at all. Its not light enough that I would use as an accent, and it goes on so thick, like a crayon. I don’t like waxy products because it feels like I’m wearing tons of makeup when I’m not. This is a big ‘ole zero for me.

hair oilMegan-  I received Coolway Hair Oil this month. I’ve never used hair oil before.  While it’s not greasy, my hair produces enough of it’s own oil that I would never go out and buy more to add to it.  That being said, I’ve always liked trying new things and if this can tame even a few of my flyaways, it might be worth it.  Maybe it’s just me and the amount of hair I have, but I feel like I’d have to use the whole  bottle to just get it in evenly.  I only used what the directions suggested and tried to spread it as evenly as possible.  I was sure that I’d get up in the morning and find that one section of my hair would be slick and that would be the end of it.  To my delight, there was no particular section that was especially greasy.  On the flip side, there was no particular shine or any smoothing of my hair either.  Time to try a little bit on the dry hair like the bottle suggests.  The end result: I have some very nice, shiny, sleek flyaways sprouting from my head.  It certainly didn’t help keep anything down (although I don’t really know that anything short of a clay mask would) but the dry application of the oil (used sparingly) gave my pony tail a nice sheen.  I won’t be going out and buying this by the bucket load, but this little bottle should last me the better part of a month the way I’m using it.

Face washI also received the Pur-Lisse Cleanser.  My skin actively rejects most things that come into contact with it, so using new products can be risky. While this makes for reasonably clear skin, it makes finding a good cleanser (and foundation) a challenge. The best I can say for this product is that it didn’t irritate my skin.  It also didn’t remove my makeup very well. This is one that I might use in the after having used an actual makeup remover. It will stay in that corner of the bathroom that holds the random things I use when I run out of my usual suspects and haven’t made a Target run. Hey, it didn’t end up in the trash which is where a lot of skin products go for me.

2521
Blake- I guess I was the odd man out this month as I received several different products! Pixi by Petra in Apricot Glow was a great find. I definitely judged this book by its cover. They looked like they were going to be either very light or very dark, and when I wore them separately they did just that. But woah mama when I combined them they completed my casual look for work and a dinner with the girls. I give it 4 ipsy bags.
Acure (day cream)2524-First off, this smells amazing, I mean just like oranges! Who wouldn’t like that for morning cream? (Crazy people, that’s who) With any cream that I put on my face I always feel like it leaves a film on my face.Though this, my friends, does not do that, my face feels so smooth, I love it! This is a huge 5 IPSY BAGS for me.
Skyn (Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels)
    2509This item is OK. I don’t hate it or love it. I mean, it does exactly what it says, and feels like cool ice cubes which I did like, but they were kind of big for my under eyes (I’m very petite, so my facial structure is much smaller). In the end I will probably use maybe once or even twice a month but that’s it.
3 Ipsy bags

All in all, a very fun bag of goodies, and over $60 value for one bag!  As always, we can’t wait for next month!  Way to go, Ipsy. 🙂
