Leave your links to your Ipsy bag posts so we can all see what else was available this month.
Uberliss Rituoil (10 ml/0.34 fl oz) - Quench your hair’s thirst with the Überliss RituOil! Engineered with a light blend of Orchid & Argan Oil, RituOil will preserve precious moisture within the hair fiber by sealing the cuticle & will safeguard it from thermal damage. The end result will be amazingly soft, shiny, & frizz-free hair. Retails for $19.90 (60mL/2 oz).
I don't think I've had to buy hair oil in years - thanks to all my beauty subscriptions! This one smells amazing! A nice floral, sweet scent - mainly due to the orchid component of the oil. I'm still using other oils so this one will have to wait in my stash for a bit.
Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal (4g) - This plumping pout perfector combines the high-shine of a lacquered gloss with the long wear of a stain and is packed full of lip-plumping peptides and avocado and jojoba oils. Lightweight, creamy texture immediately merges with lips & delivers intense glossy color for an extremely long-lasting finish! Retails for $16 (8.5g).
Such a beautiful natural pink-rose lip gloss that is not sticky and feels comfortable on the lips. I haven't worn this for very long so I can't speak on the staining ability of it but I can say it is very pigmented and glossy. Comes in 3 other shades but I am very happy with the one I received.
Zoya Nail Polish in Odette (0.5 fl oz) - This season's Zoya Nail polish are full of pure pigment, intense color and modern complexity that are a perfect transition into Spring. Retails for $9.
Another great shade received! I call it a dusty orchid colour (Zoya calls it a sultry orchid maroon cream). Either way it's gorgeous! A colour that is great all year round, but especially nice for spring. Great coverage after 2 coats. Self levels and easy to clean up around the cuticles.
Tini Beauty Eyetini Cream Shadow and Base in Ambrosia (0.14 oz) - Say goodbye to creasing and fading with Eyetini Eye Cordial Shadow Tint & Base. Eye Cordial's revolutionary formula glides on beguiling creamy color and sets to a transfer-resistant finish that doubles as a wear-extending base under powder shadow. Retails for $18.
A really cool product that I've never really seen before or tried - a cream shadow in a gloss like packaging. Applies to the skin so easily and pigmented with fantastic metallic finish that does not budge after it dries. After I swatched it, using a baby wipe or hand soap did nothing to remove this eyeshadow - needed to use makeup remover. It removed easily with the remover so no worries of pulling on those delicate eyelids. The colour I received is a great plum-rose-mauve shade which is great for my green eyes.
City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon (8.9g) - Available in 8 shades, this silky-smooth, highly pigmented matte blush compliments and blends evenly with your skin's natural glow. Extremely buildable to create a subtle or dramatic look. Retails for $2.99.
Ipsy really hit it out of the park this month. Such a beautiful, creamy, pigmented blush and I love the colour I received. Fresh Melon will be great for the spring/summer once I'm a darker shade of pale. So impressed with this blush - especially for it's very low price. Such a shame that shipping to Canada is ridiculous for this brand ($25 for any order under $150).
I am so incredibly impressed with this month's bag - probably one of the best I've ever received. I really enjoy every single item I received. The overall value of this bag is $40.81!
til next time...
