It's Ipsy time! This month's theme is street style, so that you can, I'm assuming, look like a cool bad ass. Well, I'm up for looking like a cool bad ass, so I was happy to try all of these products and for the most part I loved all of them, but read on for more details.

Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser (full size $14, sample $3)
This month's bag is worth $42!
Alterna Caviar CC Hair Perfector
To be honest, I only used it twice so far, but I really like it. It's a thick hair cream that's supposed to add moisture and shine while making your hair more manageable AKA get rid of frizz. It reminds me of Suave's Sleek Anti-Frizz cream. It has a nice subtle scent and a lot of this cream goes a long way. I would definitely consider purchasing this.
Pacifica Natural Minerals Waterproof Eyeliner in Gun Metal
I was a little hesitant at first to try this because I'm not much a metallic eyeliner girl, but pencil is more like a gray-silver. It's subtle enough to not be crazy, but it's still metallic and fun. It stays put all day and goes on smooth. I've been wearing a little bit under my bottom lashes.
Hikari Lipstick in Cabernet
Wow this lipstick! It's a gorgeous berry red color, it goes on very smooth, it's not drying at all (though I wouldn't call it very moisturizing), and it even turns into a bit of a stain, which I like. I would love to try out another color that this lipstick comes in.
Crown Brush Duet Brush
Though I wasn't over the moon at getting a brush, I do like that this is a double-sided one and that the synthetic fibers are super soft. It picks up a good amount of product.
Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser
I generally prefer foaming cleansers, but this moisturizing one is really nice. I think one that moisturizes is good for this transitioning weather since my skin gets dry when the seasons change. It makes my skin feel fresh and smooth afterwards and not tight, but despite the fact that it says fragrance-free I could detect a smell and I don't find it very pleasant. It is a very subtle scent, but I didn't like it. My mom however says that she thought it smelled nice, so you might like it, you might not.
