Guest Post- March Ipsy Bag


So excited for Casey from Let Me Try This For You to be doing a guest post for me this week! I recently did a guest post for her which you can see here. If you are interesting in doing a guest post for me, let me know! I’d be happy to work with you. Make sure you check out Casey’s blog and show her some love.

Another month and another IPSY bag has arrived.  I must say that I did get some good products in this bag.  But I also got two that I was not so happy about.  In this bag I got a brand that I use often and really like, a product that I will surely add to my collection and some other great items.  Check out my review and tell me what you think!

  1. NYX Butter Lipstick in Pops- I’m a huge fan of this brand and own quite a bit of their products.  Including their butter lipsticks.  This color is a great addition to my natural color collection.  It has a pinkish tint to it so it gives your lips a flushed look, which is great when you need some color.  I love these lipsticks because they go on smooth, hydrate your lips and last a long time.
  2. Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter- The first thing I want to say about this product is how it literally glides on.  It is so soft and smooth and easy to apply.  You can use this to highlight your brow bone, on your waterline or my favorite place to use this is my cupid’s bow, which help to define my lips.  This is a new must have for me!
  3. Coolway Glow Oil Treatment- While I usually love these products this one gets a meh from me.  It really is nothing special besides that it contains no alcohol, parabens or sulfates.  Yet, I found that it did not do anything that let’s say Biosilk usually does.  It has a very light citrus scent which was nice but it did not give my hair the shiny, smooth feel that it should have.  To me this is not worth buying.
  4. Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush- This brush is very soft and great for adding concealer in the more narrow spaces.  In face this is perfect for the cupids bow area!  But and this is a big one…..the bristles keep falling out.  I was running finger on the top of it to feel the texture and bristles started to fall out.  Not one or two but like five!  If you tug even the lightest bit the bristles will come out way to easy.  I do not know if it’s because it is made from synthetic bristles or just poorly made but this brush will not last long.

Pixi By Petra, Mesmerizing Mineral Duo-  The pigmentation in this duo is killer!  As you can see from the swatches below it really stands out and has a nice shimmer to it.  This would be perfect for the summer with a nice tan and natural lips.  Today I wore the lighter color as a highlight under my brow bow, the darker shade in my crease and then the lighter color on my lid.  They blended really nicely together and the color lasted all day.  Def a keeper ☺
