I know it's already October, but I have had so many new products from Ipsy that it takes awhile to really know whether it's something I can recommend or not! So...August's MyGlam bag took us back to school!
So, I've heard great things about Urban Decay! But man oh man is this lipstick BRIGHT!!!! I have changed up my beauty quiz at Ipsy.com so that I might start getting product shades that I can actually wear out of the house, but it doesn't seem to make a difference! LOL I did wear this lipstick out a few times, but I had to barely dab it on, and then blot some off, and then top with a lip gloss! haha The color payoff is amazing!! I just wish I had received a more neutral shade. :( (I received the shade Anarchy.)
Full size product: $17.00
I love all the mascara I've been getting with Ipsy! At this rate, I won't have to buy any for awhile! haha I did not have any problems with this mascara! It wore nicely, didn't flake off, and came off easily with my eye makeup remover. No complaints here! I don't know if the full size product has the same spooly (spooley??) as the sample size, but the smaller brush made it easy to reach the inner corner.
I received this product in Bronze. It is another amazing product that I really don't have a chance to wear! It is SO shimmery that it just doesn't work for the mommy lifestyle! Also, it says it's an eye shadow, but being a contact wearer, I am very careful what I put on my eyes. Flecks of falling glitter trapped underneath a contact lens is very painful!!! If I was younger and going out on the town, I would probably use this as a body glitter.
I am enjoying this generous sample!! I use it at least once a week and it has lasted since mid August. The full size product is more than three times the size, too! If you need a gentle facial scrub due to skin irritation or dryness, this is definitely for you! I have heard lots of great things about Michael Todd products and this one makes me want to try more of them!
I have to admit, even though I've wanted to try an eyebrow pencil, I wasn't too excited about this. The good: It is a creamy formula and very smooth. The bad AND ugly: I feel like you can definitely tell I've used a pencil on my eyebrows. :( So, I won't be using this product as intended. I definitely won't be repurchasing! Drawn in eyebrows are for some people, just not for me! (I think a powder might work better for me. Anyone have a recommendation?)
So, overall, this month's bag wasn't too exciting for me. The only product I might repurchase is the Michael Todd facial scrub. It has also got me thinking about other products in that brand! With the MyGlam Bag only costing $10/month, I continue to be impressed by the quality products offered...and the full size products!
