I was ecstatic to receive my first Ipsy Bag. After being about a week late, I was thrilled to see the Pink Bag in the mail. In it, was a small and cute Ipsy bag with Travel stamps covering one side and an orangish shade on the other side. Having accidentally read the spoilers for my bag, my items were not a surprise.
The first item I pulled out was a makeup brush, not in the bag itself but in the package, I was drawn to the blue colors.
After trying out the brush a couple of times, I was not upset with it, but not exactly too impressed. It was neither a blending brush or great at applying product. That said, it wasn’t bad.
The next product I received was an Elizabeth Mott Shimmer Eyeshadow single in Mermaid Teal.
The color itself was pretty, but not as pigmented as the image above that is on the Ipsy website made it seem. Unfortunately, I’m not much in the habit of wearing blue eyeshadow so it wasn’t too nice a product. This, however, is not the problem of Ipsy but of personal taste.
This was one of my favorite products from what I received this month, the Air Repair Skin Care Facial Mist. Initially, I thought this product would be a bit of a sham. But after a few uses throughout the day, and after having applied makeup, I noticed my makeup setting, appearing less cakey and feeling refreshed throughout the day.
On to nails ladies. I had received the Adesse New York Nail Polish in Oh Cabana Boy.
It is much more of a pale bright blue than the shade you see above, but it was pretty none the less. It applied well, took only one or two coats, and dried quickly enough. Overall, a rather good product.
Finally, I received a black clay face mask from the brand Tonymoly. I only used it once, and didn’t notice an immediate difference, but perhaps over time there will be a positive skin affect. I will have to try it out more.
Overall, I wasn’t dissatisfied nor ecstatic with this months Ipsy Package. As of right now, I would give the bag three out of five stars. It was an adorable bag with the highlights being the nail polish and the face mist, but the other products weren’t a big hit. I hope that over time, as I review my products each month, Ipsy will begin to improve on my selections. I will keep you updated as to how the following Ipsy products go!
