Hello and happy Sunday. It’s time for another Ipsy unboxing, which is always super fun for me because I love getting new makeup and beauty products every month. Let’s get started, shall we?
Tarte is definitely a high-end brand that is well-known in the makeup and beauty community. For this reason, I basically assumed I would get a good mascara, I just didn’t know how good it would be. The wand looks pretty standard. It’s not super thick, but the bristles are kind of soft, not plastic. It is straight, which tells me this mascara is intended to give length. Now, what you get is long, full, almost fake-looking lashes, which is what I love in a mascara. I wouldn’t buy it, just because it’s expensive and I don’t expect it to last more than a few months.
I talked about this in depth last week, so check out that post. Basically, this will make your concealer dreams come true. I love its texture and its coverage. I just wish it were less expensive so that I could actually buy it. Hey Honey is a brand I discovered thanks to Ipsy and I love it.
As with Tarte, Urban Decay is a well-known brand, so it is sort of a given that its products will work. The texture of this eyeliner pencil is great for basically everything: waterline, tightline, top lash line, and whatever else you want to use it for. I wore it for work one day, and it passed the test, so I’m telling you, if this resisted a day in the life of a preschool teacher, it will stay in place while you go party. It’s stupidly expensive for a pencil eyeliner, so I’ll just enjoy the sample I got.
This is pretty similar to an Urban Decay highlighter I previously got in an Ipsy bag, but this shade has a pink undertone, which I love because I’m all about the rose gold look. I really like this highlighter, and I like having more shades to choose from and play with whenever there’s a special occasion. Doucce is another brand I discovered through Ipsy and I think it’s great quality.
This cute little macaroon is now in one of my drawers at work because I’m one of those people who always needs to have lip balm in hand. The scent is fantastic and I love feeling my lips hydrated when I apply it.
That’s it for today’s haul, but I’d like you to tell me whether you know of any subscription service that is comparable to Ipsy because I’m always looking for new things to try.
Happy Sunday and happy last day of the year!
Love, Miss Camila
