One of the subscription boxes/bags that I have wanted to try for the longest time (literally years!) is ipsy. If you don’t know what ipsy is, it is a monthly subscription service that sends its subscribers a hot pink bag that contains 4 to 5 mini beauty and/or skincare items. Each bag is $10 and you truly get awesome items.
I got this bag free because one of my lovely blogger ladies had a free bag to give away. Just to be clear, this is in no way a sponsored post! All opinions are my own.
Klorane Dry Shampoo
Truthfully, when I saw in the email that I was getting a dry shampoo, I was pretty disappointed. I’m not really a fan of dry shampoo because it makes my scalp feel really clogged up and overall a lot more dirty than before I used it. However, this dry shampoo from Klorane is great! It has oat milk so it doesn’t dry out your scalp. It took a bit of brushing out to get the white powder to simmer down and not look like I had bride of Frankenstein hair going on! I used it yesterday and it has been three days since I washed my hair. My hair feels great!
While this mask looks great, I haven’t tried it yet. I don’t typically do a full face of makeup and when I do, I forget that I have this mask. The mask claims to work as a primer to prep your face and then you put on your makeup for a flawless look. It is gluten free, paraben free, and non GMO, plus it has tea tree oil and rosehip extract with a bit of vitamin C, so your face is sure to feel fresh. I did do a full face today (Tuesday) but I totally forgot to try the mask and it is still sitting on my desk. Once I try it, I’ll probably do a mini review on my Instagram stories. (Follow here!)
The third product in my ipsy bag is a vibrant purple makeup brush from F.A.R.A.H. I received the large angled contour brush (30F) and let me tell you, it is so nice! The bristles are super soft and it is perfect to chisel out your cheeks or bronze up your face. The brush bristles are also vegan! It is said to work on dry or liquid products, but I only use it on dry products.
IT Cosmetics Concealer
I was very happy to see that the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer in my ipsy bag was in the shade Light! Most of the time, concealers and foundations are too dark for my skin and this one is a great color for me. I haven’t tried this concealer yet (just swatched it) but it feels very full coverage and I’ve heard decent things about it. The package said that it can be worn as a foundation, too, so I may try that. Again, I’ll post a mini review on the product on my Insta stories! I tend to stick to my main products and I have a concealer I really like, but next time I do my makeup, I’ll try this out!
I did not expect to find a purple highlighter when I opened up the makeup box! The Estate Dew Me “After Glow” purple highlighter is so gorgeous and I love it! If you got this highlighter and it intimidates you, try using it as an eyeshadow. I think this highlighter would make any look instantly pop!
I got five mini items in my February bag and I love them. The bag is super cute also and I will be using this all the time! Did you like your February ipsy bag? Have you tried any of the products mentioned? Let me know in the comments below!
