This months theme was Floral Fantasy.
I’m really unhappy with my bag this month. They sent me almost entirely products for darker skin that isn’t as dry as mine. I don’t know of many the quiz results got screwy when they changed their website or what (I retook the quiz just in case that is the issue) but I’m not happy at all this month.
NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk
This is a very dark purple (my photo isn’t color accurate). I would have maybe worn this when I was 14 and also occasionally wearing black lipstick. It would have looked awful on me even then but I did wear dark colors of lipstick on occasion at that time. With my super pale skin this color would awful. It might look good on dark skin though. Its going on my trading board. Maybe I can find someone that likes it.
Jessica Liebeskind Vintage Illuminating Face Highlighter in Crystal Pink
Again to dark on me. I also just don’t need more beige shimmery powders. I have several already but if this were a bit lighter I may still keep it. I really wish I had gotten then white
shimmery highlighter pencil. I really want one of those. This is getting traded too.
Dr Brandt Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion
I know this is an expensive brand but I’ve been unable to use anything from it. It all dries out my skin. This is actually made to mattify whch I definitely do not need. So, again…trade board.
Boo Boo Cover Up Concealer in Medium
Medium…really? I have very fair skin. Even tanned I can’t wear medium concealer. Again getting traded. Which kind of sucks. I tried a little of this on my hand and I really like the texture. The coverage seemed good, too.
Pur-lisse Pur Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser and Makeup Remover
This is the one item I may keep. Or at least test out before deciding not to keep it. It smells very light and pure and I’m in need of a face wash at the moment. So, I’m going to give this one a shot.
For $10 I’m usually ok with whatever from ipsy but this month is kind of ridiculous. Almost everything was wrong for my skin. I may, once I use my current ipsy points, actually cancel ipsy for a little while and try to resubscribe later on. I just haven’t been happy with my last couple bags and there are some other subscriptions I want to try out.
If you want to try ipsy out, though. Its often well worth it. So, I wouldn’t recommend against it or anything. It’s $10 a month including shipping.
