My Ipsy Glam Bag seemed to arrive a bit late this month. Nonetheless, I was overall pleased with this month’s selection.
Here is what was inside:
• Beaute Basics - C405 Contour Brush • TEMPTU - Base Smooth & Matte Primer • Manna Kadar - Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow (Fantasy) • Jelly Pong Pong - Coconut +Coffee Lip Scrub • IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Anti-Aging Concealer (Medium)
Admittedly, I was hoping to have received a SLMissGlam brush, as many people did this month. Nonetheless, I am happy with my new Beaute Basics Contour brush, as I needed a new one badly
IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Anti-Aging Concealer (Medium) A full-coverage + waterproof concealer, with a hint of radiance. Great for under eye circles and imperfections.
Pros: The color matched my skin tone perfectly Hides under eye circles well
Cons: Difficult to blend. Required a Beauty Blender
Manna Kadar - Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow (Fantasy) A highly pigment, multi-purpose eyeshadow, blush or highlighter.
Pros: Love the color Fantasy. Applies beautifully
Cons: Packaging was a bit difficult to open.
Jelly Pong Pong - Coconut + Coffee Lip Scrub A smooth concoction of shea-butter and sugar. Easily scrubs and buffs away dead skin, leaving lips soft, silky, and ready for lipstick application.
Ipsy recommends “using a pea-sized amount and buff with your fingers. For particularly parched puckers, pair with a dry toothbrush to up the sloughing power.”
Pros: Lips feel silky and smooth, Paraben-free
TEMPTU - Base Smooth & Matte Primer A lightweight primer, great for hiding pores and minor imperfections.
Not heavy, nor greasy
My face stays matte all day under foundation (MAC Studio Sculpt – NC25)
A bit difficult to spread over skin, as it isn’t oily in consistency. However it is a thin formulation.
Beauty Basics C405 Contour Blush A lovely contour brush made from natural goat hair fibers.
