Unfortunately, this is not one of my favorite Ipsy bags. Either they're products that don't work for my oily skin or they're products that I just wouldn't use. I do like the sleek black bag with the hot pink zipper though.
What I got:
♥ BioRepublic Face Masks in Cucumber Breeze, Aloe Rescue & Green Tea Detox (mask set $36)
♥ tre'StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine (full size $26, sample $10)
♥ Shea Moisture Lip Crayon in Sarah (full size $10)
♥ Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (full size $36, sample $9)
♥ Selfie Tan 'N Go Face Bronzer (price N/A)
This month's bag was worth about $35.
BioRepublic Face Masks in Cucumber Breeze, Aloe Rescue & Green Tea Detox
These masks are interesting to say the least. They're made of paper, but coated in a somewhat thick clear coating of...I really don't know. They smell really great, especially the green tea detox one. It feels strange having it on your face and I honestly didn't notice any differences after taking it off, but they're kind of fun to wear and I'm sure they work if you use them a lot.
tre'StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine
This eye shadow goes on smooth, it's very pigmented, and stunning. It's a lovely olive green with gold shimmer shadow. It comes in crayon form, but I like that it doesn't feel like a cream shadow; it feels more like a powder, which for me always stays on better and is less prone to creasing. I really like this shadow crayon and might get another color at some point.
Shea Moisture Lip Crayon in Sarah
Whoa is this lipstick bright! It's a bright fuschia with subtle blue shimmer that makes it seem kind of holographic. It's super pigmented and feels very smooth on the lips and I love lip crayons because it makes the lipstick so much easier to apply. I would definitely get this in other colors if I didn't have a ton of lipstick already.
This makes my skin feel so flawless and smooth. My concealer and BB cream glide on perfectly over the primer. The only problem is that primer always makes my skin get oilier faster, so I never wear it. So whoever wins my birthday giveaway will find this in their bag!
Selfie Tan 'N Go Face Bronzer
Well, this is a strange product. It's a clear gel with little brown beads of bronzer. You use a small amount and rub it into your skin. The beads pop and turn the gel a nice bronze color. You can use a lot or a little, depending on how dark you want to go. This bronzer is too dark for me though and a product I know I would never use, but if you want to look tan for an event this would be perfect since it washes out.
Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans!
Happy weekend to everyone else!
