This month’s Ipsy theme was “On The Wild Side” so the leopard print bag suits the theme perfectly. I think this bag is the first one that I will actually use. It’s so cute! It’s trimmed and lined in bright neon yellow.
Here’s what I got:
NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Natural ($6)
J Cat Sparkling Cream Palette ($4.50)
Cailyn Gel Eyeliner in Purple ($21)
Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter ($18)
Starlooks Lip Liner in Bare ($12)
There are so many good things in this bag I don’t know where to start. Let’s jump in with the most well known brand in the bag, NYX. I received the full sized NYX cream blush in the shade Natural.
I actually already own and enjoy this exact product so you can see my pictures and swatches of the NYX Natural blush here. I didn’t want to open this one in case I decide to give it away in my next giveaway. 😉
This next product was the only thing in the bag that was a miss for me. The J Cat Sparkling Cream Palette is full of glitter. It says on the website that these are for use on the face and not necessarily as eyeshadow. I’m almost 40 years old so these are not for me, haha!
Next up is a full size Cailyn gel eyeliner in my favorite color, purple. It has a built in brush in the lid top and is water resistant and smudge proof. Can’t wait to give this one a try, it’s very pigmented and creamy.
I also received a full sized lip liner pencil by Starlooks in the shade Bare. This is a matte nude shade with a hint of pink. It’s fairly creamy and easily applies to the lips without tugging or pulling.
Next we have another awesome full sized product, the Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter. This is a chubby pencil with a creamy highlighter inside to use on places like your browbone or the inner corner of your eyes to brighten and highlight.
Even though the majority of the products in this bag are from brands I have not heard of before, I’m enjoying all of them except for the glitter creams. Everything in the bag was full sized and sells for a retail total of $61.50. So getting all that for only $10 is a bargain!
