This month's review of Ipsy, the $10.00 monthly glam bag subscription.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer- Travel Size shade Neutral Medium. I absolutely love this product, it was my favourite thing in the bag. The dark circles I have are completely camouflaged with it. Very little was need to brighten my eyes right up. It is easy to blend out, I use the heat of my fingers. This technique worked better with this product than a concealer brush. The concealer did not settle into my fine lines and added luminosity to my eyes. The water proof aspect is great for the summer. The collagen and vitamins C&K are added bonuses. I will defiantly be purchasing this, I think its a little better than my M.A.C. Pro longwear concealer. Full Size is $29.00 CAN for 28oz. Estimating this to be around $8.00 CAN
J cat Lip Paint- Shade Mad Splatter. This is full size 10 ml $4.99 CAN. This lip paint went on smoothly and had a nice minty smell to it. As you can see in the swatch it has high pigmentation. The tube is perfect for application with a lip brush, making it easily sanitary for a makeup artist's case. LA California Company Cruelty Free www.JcatBeauty.com
SeaRx Birchsap Moisturizing Lotion- This moisturizer had a clean citrus smell to it and was non greasy. The product uses minerals and birchsap to smooth the skin and strengthen the elasticity. It makes me a little nervous that it advertises to not use if you are pregnant or nursing or under the age of 18. I personally like my skincare to be gentle enough for all ages. My opinion is it's the essential oils in it that prevent pregnant women to use it, though I'm not entirely sure. It is paraben & cruelty free. Full Size is 120ml $32.00. Sorry no ml indication was given on the sample size
Marc Anthony- Oil of Morocco Argan oil volume/ shine hairspray ( extra hold infused with keratin and uv protectors). This hair spray did not flake in my hair, but if not held properly it dispensed way to much product. As a result some parts of my hair were crunchy with product build up. Other than my mistake at application it was very fast drying and smelt fresh and clean. Acts as a conditioner, strengthener and nourishment for the hair. Full size 300 mL $10.00 CAN 53mL approx. $1.60 CAN
Over all this months bag was full of good products. The products in here I can see myself re purchasing again and again in full size. Again it was a deal the bag cost $10.00 but had $35.35 worth of product. It's a great way to test out new products without fully committing to them because most are sample size, besides the bonus one or two that are full size. I really like this bag because I also get products that are not even in Canada. Small problem fixed with internet shopping :) Check out www.Ispy.com to sign up
