I am so excited to review this month’s Ipsy bag! I was almost afraid something happened to my bag because I got it so late this month. But I think with all the hurricane commotion here in Florida, it might have been pushed back a little. I don’t know, but I’m happy I finally got it!
If you don’t know what Ipsy is you are seriously missing out! It’s a $10 monthly subscription service where you receive 5 makeup products in a cute makeup bag. The products range from drugstore brands to high-end brands. They are also a decent mix of sample size and full-size products. It’s such a good deal and a great way to try out different products.
So let’s jump into the reviews!
LUXIE ROSE GOLD MEDIUM ANGLED SHADING EYE BRUSH 207
I always love trying a new makeup brush but Luxie is one of my favorites. I have received a few of these in Ipsy bags in the past and they never disappoint. The brush itself is so pretty with the rose gold handle and the two-toned bristles. It’s similar to a blending brush I’ve received but it’s angled which, I’ve actually never used for my eyes. It definitely gives a different application than the regular blending brush that I’m used to. I’m really excited to keep using this brush.

Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Deception
This is another product I have received in the past from Ipsy and I’m not always satisfied. It’s hard when you can tell a product has a good formula but you don’t like the color. So I would never get the use out of it that I wanted. But that’s not the case this time around because I LOVE THIS COLOR. I feel like I’m experiencing the brand for the first time. What I love about it is the way it feels, it’s light and dries fast with a gel effect. It’s also an organic formula that’s not tested on animals. I love it.

Zero Gravity Volume Powder
This is an interesting product that I’ve never heard of before. It reminds me of when boys would put product in their hair to make it look dirty and messy, back in the early 2000’s when that was cool. I’m not sure if this is a great product for me, I don’t style my hair very often and I already have a lot of volume. I may have to give this product to someone else. I think it has potential to work, even as a dry shampoo. Overall, not sure about this product.

Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey
This product says it’s a blush duo, however, it seems to work better as a highlighter. The colors are gorgeous – the blush tone is a shimmery peach and the other side is warm shimmery gold. Like I said, it’s more like a highlighter so I’ve used the peach over my normal blush and blended the actual highlighter on the top of my cheekbones. I love this brand too because it’s not tested on animals and it feels like a high-end brand but you can buy it at Target! This is definitely a great fall product!

Lippie Stix in Glam Bag
I saved the best review for last because I am SO EXCITED to finally try Colourpop! I have heard so many great things about this brand. Their liquid lipsticks and their eyeshadows are supposed to be amazing. This is a more traditional style “lippie stix” that is seriously amazing. The color is not my favorite, it’s a little too bright for my normal taste but that doesn’t matter in this case. The formula and the product is so amazing I will make it my taste. It just applies so smooth like velvet. And even though it is matte, it doesn’t dry down so it’s super hydrating. You better believe I will be purchasing more of these Lippie Stix in different colors.
