Happy (late) Friday guys! This month’s Ipsy bag was AMAZING! There were so many great items, and hey the bag design itself was soooo stinking cute!
This month’s theme was Rockstarlet. Included in my bag were 3 Botanical Masks by bonviant, Mad Lash mascara by theBalm, a liquid lipstick by Elizabeth Mott, highlighter by OFRA, and a new mini polish by Formula X.
I received 3 different botanical masks, a brightening mask with collagen & olive oil, a hydrating mask with sodium hyaluronate & lotus, and a tightening mask with chamomile & tea tree. I tried out the Chamomile & Tea Tree mask to see how well it worked on my oily and breakout-prone skin.
It smelled amazing, and after removing the mask there was so much extra liquid that I had to rinse the remainder off – even after rubbing a lot of it in like directed on the packaging. My face felt nice and hydrated and clean afterwards, and a little tight around my cheeks and nose.
I’m looking forward to trying out my other 2 masks for my next at home spa day. 😉
Formula X nail polish is quickly becoming my favorite go-to brand for long lasting manis. So I was so happy to see yet another mini polish in my bag this month, this time in Huntress. Huntress is a beautiful deep forest green polish with a little bit of golden shimmer, but in most lighting it looks almost black. Needless to say the picture doesn’t do this pretty polish any justice.
The OFRA highlighter was the only thing in this bag that I wasn’t too thrilled with. But that’s just because it simply wasn’t showing up on me. However, I do feel like it could be used as a finishing powder.
theBalm’s Mad Lash Black mascara was another great little goodie – and lemme tell you it looks soooooo good on. Talk about some mad lash action, I’m able to get every single little lash with the flexible wand and the formula is PERFECT.
I saved the best for last, naturally. Elizabeth Mott’s Color is Bae Lip Lacquer is the. best. thing. ever. This is super long lasting and dries matte (which I have been obsessed with). It lasted a night of birthday celebrations for Zach the other night, which included dinner, cake, and lots of drinks afterwards….and it still looked perfect. Not to mention that the shade I got – Red Chili – is my perfect shade of bright red. Guys. This is huge. Up until now I haven’t been able to find my right shade of bright red and I’ve had to keep with the berry tones. BUT NOW I FINALLY HAVE IT!!!!!
Guess you won’t be surprised if I end up doing a little excess shopping and getting a full size one of these babies.
