Cool, pretty early delivery again by Ipsy. This month’s theme is “Beauty Rocks”, featuring another cute lil makeup bag with a screen print of a record on it…I know they do the makeup bag every month, but this one I appreciate because it’s SQUARE- a nice change from the narrow rectangular shape they normally use.
My bag contained:
Of course, UB products are of high quality, but I have gotten SO MANY black eyeliners out of my beauty boxes lately…IDK if I’m ever going to get around to using this before it dries up, so I’m going to pass it on to a friend.
Like this. The color isn’t appley or pinky- it’s more of a rose-beige, closer to a natural lip color. I love the packaging but I gotta say that the formula is a bit thick and sticky. I will definitely need some kind of base to thin this stuff out.
This is a good quality product with a lovely scent. Demeter is all about simple, fresh scents with all natural formulas. The size of this sample is impressive and the Jasmine is perfect for summer.
I’m unfamiliar with this brand, but the formula seems very good. The texture is silky and smooth, the color pay off looks excellent. Shade wise, this “Champagne” looks like a dupe for the darker shade in The Eye Shadow Duo Shimmering Wheat #202, by Kevyn Aucoin. I swatched both of these, and they are just about identical, with Mott’s Champagne being the tiniest bit more peach. Above is a side by side comparison of the two. Some ppl bitch about dupes, but here’s the thing…the Aucoin Duo is $42.00…if this works just as well, to get it in an Ipsy bag with a whole bunch of other stuff for $10 is well worth it. Last but not least…
I have used Dr. Brandt’s Glow Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme before, which I really liked, so I’m looking forward to using this…I think it’s normally big hit or big miss with facial treatments in a tube, so I will be happy to review this later.
Minus ANOTHER black eyeliner, I think this month was great. GO IPSY!
