This months bag contained The Balms Mary Lou Manizer highlighter, Best Face Forever exfoliating face wash , Perfect Formula Pink GEL coat, treSique baby Blush stick and Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind lipgloss. Below I have listed a short review and the cost in Canadian Dollars. All prices are accurate exchange rates on day posted.
Perfect Formula Pink GEL Coat - this nail polish is very resistant to everyday wear. I have put it on my normal nails as directed, and it has not chipped off in 4 days. The shine pay off is really nice, my nails look healthy. The kertin formula helps strengthen the nails and leaves them a rosy pink taking out any yellow stains. Full size is $30.00 USD/ 18ml = $41.37 CAN. Size in bag 5ml = $8.30 CAN
Best Face Forever - Exfoliating Daily Facewash. This scrub claims to have peppermint, grapefruit oil and aloe Vera. To be honest this scrub would not be for me. I have very sensitive skin and peppermint and grapefruit are huge irritants. For that reason I will not be using this, also Micro beads will soon be banned due to it slipping threw filtration systems. The one positive is it does smell amazing Unfourtunatly my bio with ipsy should have shown my skin type being sentisive, fragrance is not a plus for me personally. Full size $21.00 USD / 118 ml = $28.96 CAN . Size in bag 29ml = 4.93 USD = $6.80 CAN
The Balm 'Mary Lou Manizer highlighter. This is the product I was most excited to get. The glow on this product is beautiful golden shade. Very easy to blend, using a little goes a long way. Below I put a swatch of the highlighter on my skin.
Full size - 8.5g / $24.00 USD = $33.09 CAN size in bag 0.57g = approx $2.00 USD = $2.76 CAN
treSique Baby Blush Stick in shade Bora Bora Coral. This blush is creamy in texture, with a nice pigment pay off. The only negative is if you over blend it, it pretty much disappears. In the summer this will add a nice flush that is buildable. The colour is really nice against my skin tone which is light/medium. Below in a swatch done on my hand
Full size is $34.00 USD = $46.88 CAN. Unfourtunatly the site does not show the size of it, so I do not know if this was the full size or not. I feel this is the half size so I will list is as $23.44 CAN
Vintage by Jessica LiebeskinD - the gloss is a full on shimmer mixed with actual glitter flecks. The result is extreme shine. The formula is sticky which makes me give this a lower rating. Full size is $21.00 USD = $28.96 CAN only a picture was shown on the website for size. By comparison the one in the ipsy bag looks about half the size. Making it roughly $14.48 CAN
$55.78 CAN is the total value of this months Ipsy bag. The bag is $10.00 a month plus shipping. Works out to be about $21.00 For Canadians with shipping included. To sign up or learn more information on Ispy visit www.ipsy.com
