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!!!
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!!!
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.
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
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.

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!!!
