I can not believe we are already at the last tail end of summer! Let's jump right into this month bag. Below you will read my review and thoughts on these products. All prices are based on current USD and CAN exchange.
IT Haircare 12 in one Leave in Treatment 100ml - infused with Abyssinian oil this product helps add shine, repairs damaged hair, while preventing future breakage. Calms fizz with silk amino acids. Protects hair colour and adds heat protection. I used this the other morning after the shower. My hair felt smooth and manageable like I had done a hair mask. You need very little to distribute evenly. Threw out the day my hair did not oil up or feel like it had product build up. This is a dupe for the miracle 10 hair treatment . This travel size is $5.99 USD = $ 7.75 CAN. It's a lot more affordable than its competition miracle 10.
Lord & Berry Maxi Matte Crayon Lipstick. Intimacy lip colour - This Italian fashion house is now producing stylish makeup. The pigment is matte dusted rose, with a buttery formula. The pencil design makes application precise and easy. I wore it for an afternoon and it did not dry out my lips. $17.50 USD = $22.65 CAN
IT Cosmetics No Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner.- Along with 9 other shades this liner applies a flawless application with maximum pigment. The liner is infused with hydrolyzed silk,collagen peptides and anti oxidants. It's always interesting to see what's new and advanced on the market. I love this concept of tug proof. For years I have applied eyeliner, always at the back of my mind I worried about the eye wrinkles that would forum from the drag pull of the liner. This liner was developed with leading plastic surgeons and infused with vitamins C and E. Out with the rough crayon type liner, in with the easy application gel liners. Full size 0.50g is $28.46 CAN. Size in bag was around $9.95 CAN
Winky Lux diamond powder in Light - I used this under my eyes and along my t zone as a setting powder. It did work as a mattifier and those areas did appear brighter. Apparently this powder has a blurring effect. I did notice it set my concealer and foundation without caking in my fine lines. The product itself is light and super blendable. The full size is $ 20.00 USD = $25.88 CAN. My estimate is the IPSY size was worth $6.50 CAN
Sallys Box Camellia Oil Ampoule & Olive Oil Mask- the masks ingredients listed are beneficial for the skin. My only concern is the two step process. . I feel this mask is a bit messier and more time consuming with the extra step of applying the serum first. They did not skimp when it came to product the sheet was soaked in it. Felt very moisturizing on the skin. The morning after use my skin feels soft and moisutrized I did not have any sign of a breakout or irritated skin. Each mask is $5.00
The Canadian full Retail Value of these products was $56.85. I'm lost on how these products matched the theme of Sugar and Candy. It was a cute photoshoot non the less for the stylist. Final thoughts it's not the best IPSY I have received but the products have preformed well. Until next month.... Keep sweet
