Ipsy: September 2013

photo 4Hello Spices! My Ipsy came fairly early this month and was quite a surprise.  I didn’t know what I was receiving because I had not checked my Glam Room so it was left a surprise.  This bag isn’t one of my favorites but I always appreciate the things I get.

Let’s get to it!

photo 2(1)Starlooks Eyeliner in Obsidian:  I don’t use eyeliner much anymore or not as much as I used to back in high school when i was going through my emo/scene phase.  I always appreciate getting some for free but they have been sending me quite a bit and I always tend to stay true to my Revlon or Loreal pencil eyeliners. This eyeliner didn’t really glide on but had some great pigment.  It wouldn’t be a good pencil choice to use on the eyelid since it does take a few strokes to get a deeper black.

Cailyn Tinted Lipbalm in Big Apple: I loved this brand.  The item I had tried out before was a gel eyeliner that was given away at my past giveaway.  I was not aware that they made Tinted Lipbalm.  I was a bit iffy on this but when I put it on my hand for a swatch, I was surprised at how red and pigmented it was.  I put it on my lips and it was smooth.  It’s not as great as other lipbalms but its a great thing to put on your lips if you want some color and some hydration.  I adore the name! Big Apple!

photo 2(2)It’s So B!G by Elizabeth Motts Mascara: Mascara is mascara. There is so many out there that I find it a bit exhausting to look for them.  I already have 2 mascaras that I am in LOVE with so I was reluctant to try this.  It’s ok.  That’s the short of it.

photo 5(1)Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels: This surprised me the most.  I was NOT expecting any skincare or eye care in my bag.  This made me a very happy person.  I rushed to the bathroom and tried it on,following the directions.  I cut them to my size and peeled off the sticky back, sticking it on my dark circles.  I waited 15 minutes.  I didn’t really feel the cooling sensation but after maybe 5 minutes I felt a bit itchy under it. I resisted the urge to scratch and kept it on for the whole time. When I peeled it off, I saw no difference.  I don’t really have puffiness under my eyes but more bags and creases.  It helped nothing.  I would put pictures up of me wearing it, but it’s not cute. Sorry!

What did you recieve in your bag? Which would you be most interested in trying? I appreciate all your comments and likes. Thank you.
