The theme for IPSY this month was “Like a Boss” which I thought was really interesting. The bag this month was black with royal blue on the inside, and a rough texture on the outside. I actually really like it, and it’s one of the only bags that I can actually see myself using outside as something other than a makeup bag.
The first item I got was some type of snail secretion that’s supposed to do something for your face. To be honest, I’m still not exactly sure what it is. Either way, I don’t think I would ever use this product since I found out that it contains snail secretion. I’m sure it’s probably great, but personally, I just can’t.
The second product I got was Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer. I was really excited when I got this because I heard such good things about Smashbox primers, but this one had a tint to it. I don’t know how to describe it. I just feel like it won’t look good on my pale skin.
I also got the Elizabeth Mott eyeshadow in Gunmetal. It’s the second product that I’ve received from them (the first one was a highlighter), and I loved the first one. I’m just not sure that I’ll like the shade of this eyeshadow. I prefer gold eyeshadow to silver. The fourth item I got was an angled shading brush from Luxie. This is another product that I probably would have liked if it was a different type of brush. I just don’t use angled brushes.
Last, I got a blush duo from Pixi in Peach Honey. I am absolutely in love with this brush. The colors are absolutely beautiful, and I think that it will look great on my pale skin. It also has a little bit of shimmer to it which would be nice if I’m not wearing a highlighter that day but still would like a little bit of shimmer.
Overall, I’d give this bag about a 3 out of five. I love the bag and the blush duo, but that’s really all that I can see myself using.
