Did Someone Say Ipsy?

I wanted to spice things up a bit with my blog and my beauty routine so I figured ipsy would be a great place to start. I’m new at reviewing products on my blog so this is a great challenge for me. For those of you who don’t know, ipsy is a monthly subscription company. For only $10 a month, a pretty pink bag is sent to your designated address with 5 different travel sized products based on your preferences upon enrolling. Your profile can be changed at any time so you’re not suckered into anything 😀

Now for the products!!!

  1. Tucker Ashley Perfecting Moisturizertucker ashley

retail:19.95 full size (sample size 1 oz (30g)  tuckerashley.com

My thoughts: Make sure to remove the silver protective film. After cleansing my face, this white cream like product applies just like a lotion only…. it feels like silk. There is no scent and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. I’m impressed!

What the back says:   A unique oil-free moisturizer that contains cermides and all-natural water binding mechanisms for skin. Improves skin barrier function and provides long lasting reservoirs.

Ingredients: Purified water, capric caprylic tryglycerides, glycerin, ceteareth 20, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, saccharide isomerate, dimethicone, cermide 3, ceramide 6 II, ceramide1, phytosphingosine, cholesterol, sodium lauroyl lactylate, sodium hyaluronate, carbomer, xanthan gum, sodium hydroxide, citric acid, disodium edta, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycern.

(what does this even mean??) anyway onto number 2!!!

2. tre’Stique mini matte lip crayon lip-crayon-product-formula-florence-fig

Retail: $28.00  color: Florence Fig

My thoughts: Cute presentation!!! I honestly thought the lid was the actual crayon.

I’m not much a lipstick girl but this applied smooth and subtle. Very nice. And it can be kept in my back pocket which is a plus! I didn’t realize the full size was so expensive. Good thing I got the travel size version hehehe.

What the website says: Featuring a creamy, lightweight, lip color crayon with a natural matte finish and a BB Lip Balm. This shiny balm can be layered under lip color as a moisturizing primer or over lip color for a shiny finish. Seals with our custom magnetic cap.

3. Sinful Colors Blue-By-You_1100_Bottle

Retail $2.00 Color: 989 Ciao Bella

My thoughts: That looks familiar! This fingernail polish can be found in Walmart in various colors. The brush is your typical sized brush and not the wide fanned like the fancy rivals. I just had my nails done so I didn’t get to apply them to the nails. This will be a toe color unless I want to be daring. muhahaha

4. Beaute’ Basics chubby eye crayon BEC03_web

Retail: 19.99 Color: Bec03 Sahara Gold

My thoughts: I LOVE THIS eyeshadow!!! Exactly my style! classy and subtle yet just a little glitter to make it fancy.

5. Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara SB_C1M0_SKUC1M001_340

Retail: 20.00 Color: Jet black

My thoughts: I like the full fan with the mascara fully covering ever fiber. Applies evenly and makes my lashes feel full. And the best part? It’s WATERPROOF!!!
