November Ipsy Bag Review

Hey friends!

So I have mentioned before that I am a huge Ipsy advocate. I have been ordering bags for over a year now & continue to be impressed.

That being said, after over a year, Ipsy has really learned what I like and don’t like base don my reviews on the site, but I figured I would share them here too since these are products you can also purchase seperatley!

This month, I got 6 products since i redeemed some points for an extra item that I got to select (you earn points by reviewing products on their wesbsite).

LET’S GET STARTED

  1. Youth to the People Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 
    IMG_8706

What is it?

  • It’s a moisturizer!
  • It’s made out of kale leaf extract which is rick in vitamins C,E, and K, so it’s supposed to “nourish, brighten, protect, and soften your skin”
  • also made out of spinach leaf to “help rejuvenate skin and imrpove radiance.”
  • It’s supposed to look good under makeup too

My Review:

  • So don’t get me wrong, my DRY DRY skin LOVES moisturizers, so it loved this one! I have been using it right after I get out of the shower to lock in moisture.
  • It feels nice when I first put it on, BUT after a couple minutes it feels like the moisture is gone and my skin gets dry again. So i go back to my holy-grail moisturizer CeraVe.
  • It definetly makes me skin feel nourished and healthy, but I really hate having dry skin, so I don’t love it.

My overall rating: 3/5 

2.   Pixi by Petra LipLift Max in Honey Sheen

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_bd

 

  • 04 oz
  • Formula: not sticky, smooth, actually plumps lift
    • It’s made with aloe (to heal), jojoba (to moisturize), and chamomile (to soothe).
    • Tingly peppermint feeling on the lips
    • Lips feel very refreshed
  • Packaging: cute signature pastel green
  • Applicator: not my favorite. Super stiff and straight.
  • Champagne gloss color.
  • It’s been my go to lip gloss this past week

This brand in general:

  • I don’t use it very often, but I might splurge and get another one of these LipLift Max glosses since it really is wonderful. I know it’s available at Target. I’ve used eyeshadows from this brand & I would give those a 3/5.

Overall Rating: I gave it a 5/5

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_c2

  • 7 ml
  • Ingredients: Organic extra virgin pumpkin seed oil, Pomegranate (Punica granatum) seed oil, Tocotrienols, Tocopherol (Alpha-D-Tocopherol, Vitamin E), Astaxanthin, Lycopene, Xanthophyll (Lutein), Alpha Lipoic Acid [R-(+)-], Beta Carotene.
  • Packaging: super nifty and easy to use.
  • I have really dry skin, so beauty oils are my BFF especially during the cold months.
    • This one I put on before bed and when I wake up or I mix it in with my foundation.
    • It feels very smooth and sinks into skin immediately which is super effective.
  • Pumpkin seed extract is supposed to help with reducing inflammation and fight acne.
    • I can do a review on it later to let you know if it actually does those things after a couple weeks if you want! Let me know!

This brand in general: I have never used it, but I am very excited about it!

Overall Rating: 5/5

4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Quirky 

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_bf

  • It’s made out of natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River.
  • I LOVE this blush
  • My preffered shade of blush for my skin type (natural light-medium) is peach-toned. & this blush is so beautiful.
  • The size of the blush is actually a very hefty amount.
  • I also LOVE Tarte cosmetics, so I was very excited about this one.
  • It’s also very easy to build which is very great for every person.

Overall Rating: 5/5 

5. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Leave-in mask

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_be

  • it’s supposed to strengthen and moisturize the hair.
  • I’ve used it only twice to be completely honest, and I was extremely impressed with it. I have pretty dry hair becasue ofmy history of coloring it, and usually when I use leave in conditoners or masks, I notice a difference, but not with this one.
  • It smells good for those who are particualar smells!
  • I’ll give it another chance, but for now

Overall Rating: 1/5 

6. Caitè London Mini Translucent Setting Powder in Hideout 

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_c3

  • It is super light-weight and really does keep my make-up in place for a long time!
  • It also doesn’t give me any flashback!
  • Ipsy says it can double as a dry-shampoo too, but I haven’t tried that yet because…..
  • THERE IS SO LITTLE PRODUCT!
  • So that being said, the product itself is effective and great, but because it was so small, I have to give it an

Overall Rating: 4/5 

 

Rating of Whole Bag

4/5

The products were all that I wanted and would use, so I was very satisfied with it!

I did not like the bag itself because personally I am not a hearts person.

The products that I love, I LOVE, and the others were just mediocre, but I am not gonna lie, I will continue using becuase they are effective except for the moisturizer.

The best things in life are free (& sometimes we wish they were). Honestly, I'm just an outspoken person trying to feel good about the one life I'm given. To me, the best things in life are family, friends, teaching, learning, empowerment, music, kindness, the outdoors, coffee, travel, make-up, food, & so many more that I can't think of but will probably talk about here. Sit back, stay awhile, and enjoy some of my favorite things.
