It’s here, it’s here! My July ipsy bag is here!
For beauty lovers who have been living under a rock, ipsy is a monthly makeup/skincare subscription. Basically, you pay $10, and each month you get sent a cute little bag with 5 products based on your preferences. You can review the products on the ipsy app to give feedback and help ipsy get better at selecting products for your future bags. If you want to sign up, I have a handy dandy referral link HERE!
Here’s a quick peek at the bag and the products I received, as well as my first impressions.
I have seen so many twitter and instagram posts praising the cuteness of this bag, but I have to say I find it kind of weird, in a this-makes-me-uncomfortable way. According the the card in the ipsy bag, this little egg-yolk guy is named Gudetama. The bag itself has a cheap made-in-China plastic smell to it that sticks to your hands. Overall, not a fan of the bag itself. Get it here.
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
How it works: This product has a near cream-to-gel formula – it comes out of the bottle looking like a thicker cream, but as you rub it into your skin it turns into a super hydrating, but not greasy, gel that soaks into your skin pretty quickly. It’s meant for your face, and for those with dry and sensitive skin types (thank you!), but I could see this being great for any skin type, especially in the summer if you had a little too much sun since the product has a nice cool feel to it.
So Susan Makeup Brush
How it works: I was disappointed to see that neither the brush itself nor the packaging had the name of the brush listed on it. After a quick google search, it looks like this is So Susan’s blender brush. Loving how soft it is, and – Bonus points for being a cruelty-free product!
tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
How it works: Yes, yes, YES! This is what I was waiting for! I’m a huge fan of tarte’s Amazonian Clay products, and was super pumped to see this bronzer in my ipsy bag. I love this bronzer because it has great pigmentation, and blends super easily. It’s also waterproof, which is fantastic for beach days. Get it here.
Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Cream
How it works: Ehh. Initial impression is that I am not a fan. So this product has a brush at one end, and a little pot of brow cream that screws off at the other end. In theory, great idea – brow cream and brush all in one package, easy to throw into a bag for touch-ups throughout the day. However, let me say that the brush is terrible. I’m not sure if its a combination of the cream and brush, or just the brush itself, but I felt like a toddler trying to color inside the lines using this – it got everywhere. My brows looked like a disaster. I’m curious to see if the cream itself would look nice with a better brush. Get it here.
treStique Mini Concealer Crayon in Porcelain
How it works: Let me say, first off – porcelain is not the color for my skin, so ipsy missed the mark on that one. Other than being the wrong color for me, the product itself is fairly decent. The concealer has a creamy, buildable texture that does a great job of hiding blemishes and scarring. If you’re looking for an undereye concealer, this may be a bit too thick for the delicate under-eye area, but overall is a nice concealer. Get it here.
