Hello beautiful readers!
I finally decided to bring back my monthly Ipsy unbagging. I mean, I love Ipsy so much – I’ve been a customer for abouth a year and 5 months now! ❤ This month’s theme was actually amazing. With all of the celestial happenings in the universe this month (i.e. the solar exclipse, meteor showers, Mercury in retrograde, etc.), I think this “good vibes only” theme was perfect for this month. There were three bag designs available to Ipsy subscribers, and I actually received the one I wanted. My bag says “Wild & Free” *Cue Snoop Dog!*, and I mean, late summers adventures and nights are all about being “Wild & Free” (within reason, of course haha).
I was not a huge fan of the last two summer glambag designs, so this one was super refreshing and pretty! ❤ I will totally throw this one in my backpack or pocketbook to hold makeup or items I need!
Enough about the bag itself. Let’s see what I received!
- First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay
- theBalm Cosmetics theBalm Voyage vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha
- MAKEUP FOREVER EXCESSIVE LASH Arresting Volume Mascara
- Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer in Flush
- Paula Dorf Cosmetics Mini Universal Brow Pencil in Taupe
- IPSY POINT REDEMPTION – Full-sized Pixi by Petra Mattelustre Lipstick in Honey Bare
Last month, I received an eyeshadow pan in my Ipsy bag that was this really dark, sort of ugly brown/gold, and I was happy I received Kuwakaribisha from theBalm because it is a light, champagne gold color that will be gorgeous all over the lid, or as a highlight for the inner corner and browbone. The other option theBalm had this month was a similar ugly brown/gold, so I am happy my glambag review last month (that mentioned I disliked the eyeshadow color) worked and they chose a better color for me!
The Hikari bronzer/blush looks beautiful!! I cannot wait to use it later today and see how it looks on the skin. As you can see, the pan has two pink tones, and two sparkly bronzer tones, so I am looking forward to how it looks on my olive skin.
I am curious about the Paula Dorf eyebrow pencil because I’ve never heard of her brand before. When I swatched the eyebrow pencil, it looks more brown than it does taupe (taupe is the color that best matches my eyebrows), but the texture and formula felt nice, and I will definitely try it out to see how I like it.
Finally, the Pixi by Petra point redemption is so exciting because I love the formula of their Mattelustre Lipsticks. The color is subtle, and natural, and I love the packaging. A lot of the Pixi by Petra packaging reminds me of retro beauty packaging from the 50s and 60s, so it speaks to my old soul. Plus their cruelty-free, so what is not to love?
I swatched all of the products on my arm, so you can see what I am talking about.
From top to bottom – Honey Bare Lipstick, Kuwakaribisha Eyeshadow, Hikari Bronzer, and Paula Dorf Eyebrow pencil.
What did you receive in your Ipsy bag this month? Did you like your products, and your bag design? Let me know!!
September marks the beginning of Ipsy’s fall glambags, and usually their fall bags are AMAZING. As much as I don’t want summer to end, fall beauty trends and colors are my FAVORITE. Can’t wait for next month!!
