Beauty Talk: My July Ipsy9:00:00 AM
As usual, I'm super excited to share what I got in this month's ipsy bag. ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service. It's ten bucks, and it's the best part of getting my mail every month.
The first thing I noticed was a Luxie Beauty Small Angle Eye Brush. I love getting brushes because they are something that can be used over and over again. This one is versatile because it can be used on your eyes or your eyebrows. I haven't been doing a whole lot of liner lately, but I do smudge a dark eyeshadow into the lash line if I want a little extra definition. The brush retails for $10, which automatically makes this month's ipsy bag worth the price of admission.
Next up is a brand I love to get products from: theBalm. I've received a highlight and an eyeliner from the brand in the past and have been impressed with the both the quality and the packaging. This month, I got the Meet Matt(e) Trimony eyeshadow in Matt Kumar, which is a beautiful matte cranberry color. The photo isn't doing it justice at ALL. It's a color from a recent release that I'm dying try, and if this sample is any indication, the rest of the palette will be just as lovely.

The OFRA Cosmetics Lip Liner in Silk was the first product I had a chance to try. It's a nude lipliner, so it can go under whatever color you like. It comes in a wood pencil format, so it's definitely a drier formula, but I found that it wasn't uncomfortable, and it did help extend the wear of my lipstick.
Finally, the product I was most nervous about...the Cake Beauty Delectable Lemon and Cream Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream. This product lives up to it's name, with a sugary lemony scent. I have a major sensitivity to fragrance and don't typically reach for these kinds of products, but I do love anything citrus scented, so I will have to give this a shot, eventually.
Have you tried any of these products/brand? What did you think?
Do you get ipsy or another beauty subscription? Let me know. I've had my eye on the Sephora Play box...
