The new Ipsy bag came the other day! I was excited to get my 2nd bag and have fallen in LOVE with 4/5 of the products (the 5th hasn’t been opened yet).
The bag is super cute and in the style of a pencil pouch you may have carried in your backpack.
The first item I used was the Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. It is AH-MAZING! I normally put my dry shampoo in at night so it has some time to soak up the oils. Within minutes this soaked up the oil without leaving a powdery finish-a real struggle for those of us with dark hair that prefer a spray to a loose powder! Normally I can go a full day and a half without even being self conscious about my hair but the day I used this was a particularly humid day. I have been using this dry shampoo lately and I like it, but I LOVE the one from Klorane and will be buying a full size bottle soon!
For the makeup portion of my bag, I created this look:
–Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil Plushie, a great, dark purple eye liner, to line both the upper and lower lash line. It’s a really soft pencil so here’s a trick for the lower lash-dot in between the lashes then use a thin angled brush to blend the dots. I find that this creates a thinner line.
-Costal Scents Shadow Palette Sample (you can find a larger palette that includes the 4 shades I received here: Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette). I used the Pink Silver color for the brow bone and the Baby Pink for my lid. They’re really pigmented and have a wide range of shades. I also used Mary Kay Mineral Eye Shadow in Sweet Plum for the crease.
-I put Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo on the top of my cheekbones after applying a sheer layer or Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush.
I said that I only used 4/5 of the products given to me. I have not used the Jersey Shore Sun MONGONGO Nutrient Dense Lip Conditioner (Balm). It’s sealed shut and I just haven’t opened it. I am currently lip balm rich having just purchase 3 of these Jack Black Lip Balms. I LOVE them and they have SPF in them without the SPF smell or taste-which I absolutely loathe. I will keep it sealed until I lose one the others; because we all know it will happen!
Interested in your own Ipsy bag?! Check out my first Ipsy post here. I talk a bit about how the bag works. Also, I used the Sexy Hair spray again-not a fan. But hey-you can’t beat 5 deluxe samples plus a bag for $10!
