What a cool idea for a bag this month! You all know I am a creative/artsy type, so this is perfect. It comes with markers so you can color it! I haven’t colored mine yet because I want to use more than just the two colors they provided me with, but I probably will eventually.
Royal & Langnickel: Prismatic Ombre Fan Brush
This brush is very pretty. I absolutely love the colors! Blue and purple are two of my favorites. However, I do not use fan brushes, so this will never get used. I wish it had been a different kind of brush instead.
VENeffect: Pore Minimizing Cleanser
This is a decent cleanser, but nothing about it really stands out. It has an okay smell, but it doesn’t foam up very much. It still removes makeup residue pretty well, though not as well as the main cleanser I’ve been using. It does seem to help minimize pores, but that only lasts temporarily.
Tarte: Sex Kitten Eyeliner
Yet another eyeliner. I was so aggravated when I saw that I would be receiving another one because I’ve been getting black eyeliner every single month. I contacted Ipsy Care though, and they said they would temporarily stop sending me eyeliners. As for this one, it’s okay. Nothing about it is better than any other eyeliner I’ve used. It also doesn’t glide on as smooth as some eyeliners do.
Steve Laurant: Lip Oil (shade Orchid)
I am not too crazy about lip gloss. I prefer lipsticks/creams. Although this gloss is supposed to have a purple tint, when I put it on it just looks clear. It’s not really my cup of tea. I will probably occasionally wear it over top of lipstick when I’m in the mood though. I will say that it’s not sticky like some glosses are, so that’s a plus.
Goldfaden MD: Facial Detox Mask
I’m not really sure what to think of this mask yet. It does not smell good at all. In fact, it smells like Vicks Vapor Rub, and when you put it on, it kind of feels like you’re putting ointment all over your face. It is supposed to help with acne though, and it has salicylic acid in it, which works good for getting rid of pimples. I will have to keep using it to see if it really helps with that over time.
I’m not too happy with the items that I received this month. I really hope I enjoy April’s bag a lot better. I did just redeem some of my points, so I will be getting a free bonus item next month that I look forward to trying.
