Hello and happy Sunday. I recently got my Ipsy Glam Bag for the month of May and wanted to share with you the products I got and my thoughts on them. Let’s get started!
This is a contour and highlight kit I got when I re-subscribed to Ipsy. I’m totally in love with It Cosmetics and I think it’s an amazing brand. There are six shades: two for contouring, two for bronzing and two for highlighting. I think this will become my go-to product for contouring because it has everything I need and more.
I have to admit I’m not fully in the highlighting game yet, so I have very few highlighters. This product though, is the perfect shade for me and it has just the right amount of pigmentation. It builds up if you want a super stunning look, but it can also be on the more conservative side, if there’s such a thing when talking about highlighters. Urban Decay is a killer brand and I love its products.
Eye shadows are my absolute babies. A good eye shadow means everything to me, and these duo is the perfect product for summer. The shades are shimmery, which I love because it provides versatility and allows for basically any sort of eye look you want, and the colors are absolutely lovely. They’re both rusty-looking, which I’m super into, and they look great by themselves or together. Guess what I’ll be wearing this summer on my eyes?
I was kind of disappointed to know that I was getting yet another eyeliner from Ipsy because it’s my fourth one among liquid and pencil eyeliners. I hoped this one would at least be the OpalOvercoat one, and I was actually starting to think about a look I could try with this product, but I got the black one and, oh well, added it to my collection. I tried it straight away and loved the pigmentation, but it bleeds out a little too much for my liking, so if you want a super precise, tightlining look, don’t reach for this one. If you’re into a reverse smokey eye and like your lower line makeup to be smudged out, then by all means try this product.
Lip balm is any liquid lipstick lover’s best friend. Wherever I go, I make sure to have lip balm with me, so this one was very well received. I’d gotten Hey Honey products in the past and loved them, so I was really happy to get something else from that brand. This balm is awesome, and it feels and smells great.
For a while now, I’ve been applying my foundation with a beauty sponge, but now that the summer’s here, I might take advantage of this new tool, wash all my sponges and try it out. I have other Luxie Beauty brushes and really like them, so I’m excited to give this one a try, especially for lighter foundation.
That’s it for today’s post. I’m very happy with the products I got and I’m excited to do an actual look using them. Now tell me, what is your favorite beauty subscription box and why?
Love, Miss Camila
