Ipsy Love

My lovely Seester-in-law (a make-up artiste) suggested Ipsy to me a few months ago... I'm so glad she did! I'm tipsy on my ipsy over here. First of all- they send off your monthly glam bag in the ca-uuuutest little make-up cases every month. This fact alone is fantastic, because I have organized my make-up drawers for the first time ever, with these cute little bags. Every month they differ. Swoon.IMG_1771.JPG Ipsy subscriptions cost $10 per month and you answer a questionnaire prior to receiving your bags, so you are always receiving products you love. Upon receiving your bag, if you rate your items on the Ipsy site, you get Ipsy points, leading up to free items. Pretty fun, I guess.

So. Down to glam bag specifics. I started my day with an Indie Lee skin brightening cleanser. J'adore. Skin felt soft and my primer and foundation went on nicer than usual.

I love the creme highlighter this month from Doll10. It gives your cheekbones a dewy, radiant look. Highlighter always makes me feel young and sexy. Before this fantastic find, I would sweep a bit of Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow in a champagne color on my cheeks as a highlighter. This, being made for skin-skin, is slightly thinner than the eyeshadow, and is easier to apply. J'adore.

OKKKKKK... Now let's get serious for a minute. This next item freaked me out a little, I'm not gonna lie. It is Skone Tattooed Water Proof Liquid Eyeliner. I tried it in my hand to see how proficient the tip was, and instantly realized: waterproof + 'tattooed' proclamation= this does NOT come off easily. Since I wear liquid liner everyday, I put on my brave face and applied, fully knowing that if I messed up my line I may be stuck with it for eternity. My hands were (thankfully) steady and the lines were clean. Application is excellent and the tip is perfect. Then it dawned on me: I can swim in the summer with this stuff on?! Holy crap! Excitement!! For those who need to remove this divinity at the end of the day- coconut oil removed mine (CO is my steadfast make-up remover on the reg anyway). J'adore.

And lastly, but so definitely not leastly: Starlooks Lip gloss in Guilty Pleasure. I'm such a red lip addict, that it doesn't even occur to me to try something different. Thank you Ipsy for deciding that I needed to try this gorgeous thick, but not sticky, medium shine mauve/rose gloss. You are right. I did.

I also scored some Fig & Rouge hand cream in Mango Mandarin. J'adore, as well.
