August 2016 Ipsy Bag


I haven’t shared my Ipsy bags for the past few months but thought I would share this one. First, how dreamy is this makeup bag?  I love it and of course, you can’t have too many makeup bags…


Let’s begin:

  1. NYX Born To Glow liquid illuminator in the color “Gleam” (7.50 USD):


The thing with liquid illuminators is that you can use them in many different ways.  You can use them as a primer, mix them with your foundation, as a base for your highlight or just use it as a highlighter on its own.  The difference between a powder highlighter and a liquid one is obviously the finish.  A powder highlighter will give you an unnatural looking highlight… which I love.  By unnatural I mean that people can tell you have a glowy product on your face.  A liquid one will just give you a nice dewy wet looking “natural” glow.  This rose gold highlighter is beautiful and will suit so many different skin tones because it has pink and gold undertones. The full size is 7.50 USD for 18 ml.  This deluxe sample is 13 ml.

2. LORD&BERRY Lip Color in Intimacy (20 USD):

This is a rosy pink lip color that glides on the lips.  It is a matte color that doesn’t dry out the lips and lasts a really long time.  It does have some transfer to it but not too much.


3. PETER LAMAS supreme radiance complexion booster  (44 USD):

That is a pretty long name for a primer.  It is probably the most smoothing primer I own.  However, I am not a fan of silicone based primers.  I am also not sure why it is so dark.  It is going to darken you a little if you are fair. It also claims to have light reflecting properties that brighten but I have not noticed this to be honest.  It has Retinol and Salicylic acid which help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  The full size has 30 ml of product and costs 44 USD.  This deluxe sample is 10 ml.

As you can see in the picture below, once I blended it, it did darken my hands just a little bit but my pores have instantly disappeared.


4. Beauty For Real 24-7 eyeliner in Black Magic (14 USD):

Have you seen anything more black? I personally haven’t.  It is blendable for up to 10 seconds and then it will set and not budge.

5. 111SKIN Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask (20 USD):

It is a very moisturizing sheet mask that brightens skin tone, increases circulation and stimulates collagen production.  But…20 USD for a single use sheet mask? !  For best results, they recommend using it 3x a week.


Alright, that is all for now! xo
