ipsy // 006

Added on by Jordan Martone.

hey! another ipsy! no way! pfft, didn't see that coming at all...

this month's bag has been a delight, which is a huge relief coming off of last month's disappointing bag...

1. tarte cosmetics deluxe lipsurgence lip crème in wonder

this product is something i'll be saving for a rainy day, as i don't wear this shade very often. but i've used this lip crime before and i love it.

2. madam c.j. walker beauty culture brassica seed & shea oils silkening blow out crème

i rarely "blow out" my hair in the way that a salon would consider a blow-out. ya know, the whole "freshly washed-clean cut-my hair is poofier than normal" blow-out. but i will say that this smells amazing.

3. beat basics 3 tone bronzer

this bronzer is awesome. a great shade for my complexion and super pigmented. 

4. beau gachis paris pro series applicator sponge

"dare i say i like this more than my beauty blender??" is what i wrote in my review of this sponge on ipsy. it's an awesome alternative.

5. jelly pong pong cosmetics neapolitan palette

my sister has this and swears by it. so glad i now have one too! it's the perfect go-to for great eyes on a sleepy school-teaching morning.


over all, this was a winner month. and that bag?! so artistic. i'm considering re-purposing it into a pencil bag for everyday use.

as always, if you're interested in ipsy, it's $10 a month for 5 sample items that are worth $15+ each. well worth it if you're hoping to broaden your makeup horizons! click here.
