November Ipsy Bag 2015

10:11 PM 8 Comments A+ a-

 Ipsy is a monthly subscription makeup bag, created by Michelle Phan, that varies and caters to your  beauty, skincare, hair and even your nail needs. 
This month's Ipsy Bag is a cute galaxy themed bag! It came with 5 decently sample sized items, a liquid highlighter, a mattifying emulsion, liquid eyeliner, a fluffy crease eyeshadow brush, and a smash box full exposure mascara.



Jelly Pong Pong 

Liquid Gossamer


What it claims to be:
"A lightweight, water-based luminizer that gives skin instant radiance while keeping it moisturized at the same time. Formulated with ultra-fine, light refracting coated mica pigments in a sheer, soft cream that gives your skin an ethereal, youth-looking glow."
  • 78% Natural
  • No Parabens
  • No Animal By-Products
  • .27 oz
Ingredients: Water, glycerin, silica, talc, polyacrlic acid, triethanolamine, phenoxyethanol, fragrance, mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxide

Thoughts:
Overall, this product is great. Not only does it smell like coconuts, but it also gives a beautiful bronze glow. The mica (glitter) is not chunky and leaves a nice sheer radiance (depending on the amount you apply onto your skin, but a little goes a long way). Once blended into the skin, it does not budge or smudge and in my opinion is waterproof. It took me a while to just wash off the product. I would definitely purchase the full-size product (plus it is cruelty-free!)


Figs and Rouge 

Mattifying Emulsion and Pore Refiner


What it claims to be:
"Figs & Rouge Mattifying Emulsion & Pore refiner provides sheer matte coverage for daily shine control. Developed with a clinically proven formula, it helps diminish blemishes & outbreaks with regular daily use."
  • Refines & Minimizes pores
  • Controls shine in an instant
  • Creates a luxurious 'velvety touch' effect
  • Clinically proven ingredients that help's control breakouts & supports clearer complexion
  • .05 oz
Ingredients: aqua, zea mays (corn) flower, xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol, parfum, chlorphenesin, alcohol dent, benzyl salicylate, amyl cinnamal, hydroxycitronellal, linalool, plantago lanceolata (english plantain) leaf extract, sodium salicylate, mahonia aquifolium (oregon grape) root extract

Thoughts:
I haven't used this product enough to review, but it is a gel-like consistency and leaves a little sticky feeling onto the skin. So far I like it. I apply this after I have put lotion onto my face, then my primer and foundation. I will be updating this item once I incorporate it more into my makeup routine.

Absolute New York

 Nano Liner

What it claims to be:
"This ultra-fine liner features a super slim, tapered felt tip that allows for pin point precision. Experience unprecedented versatility – from subtle definition to the boldest of black."
  • Water-resistant, fade-resistant, smudge-resistant
  • Paraben-free, fragrance-free
  • .03 oz
Ingredients: aqua, acrylates copolymer, propylene glycol, triethanolamine, pvp, veegum, polysorbate 60, sorbitan stearate, methylisothiazolinone, iodopropynyl, butylcarbamate

Fine Felt Tip
(Left-right) Light Pressure, Medium Pressure, Heavy Pressure
Thoughts:
I would say its pretty good, especially for the price (about $5.00) compared to my Stila Liquid Eyeliner ($22.00). The fine felt tip leaves precision lines and is really black. One thing I do not like is that it is somewhat glossy (but I can't complain because it is very affordable!) It is very waterproof and stays on all day. This eyeliner has temporarily replaced my dried up Stila Liquid Eyeliner :)

Crown Brush

Deluxe Pointed Crease Brush


What is claims to be:
"This handcrafted professional pointed crease brush is perfectly tapered to give you optimum coverage and color in the crease"
  • The fluffy tip works well for blending multiple colors
  • Perfect for layering color or creating a smokey eye


Thoughts:
The brush is really fluffy and perfect for blending eyeshadows, great for transition shades and smoking out colors. I use it often.

Smash Box 
Full Exposure Mascara

What it claims to be:
 "Inspired by the on-set technique of layering a lengthening fiber mascara over a volumizing formula, this new studio-tested mascara exposes your longest, fullest lashes. No clumps, no flakes. Just maximum-impact, scene-stealing lashes."
  • 104% increase in lash volume
  • 32% increase in lash length
  • 34-degree increase in lash curl
  • 3 ml
Ingredients: WATER , STEARIC ACID , COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX , POLYISOBUTENE , POLYVINYL ACETATE , GLYCERYL STEARATE , PARAFFIN , SILICA , AMINOMETHYL PROPANEDIOL , POLYESTER-5 , ISOSTEARIC ACID , PVP , HYDROGENATED OLIVE OIL , OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL , OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) OIL UNSAPONIFIABLES , CHOLESTEROL , PANTHENOL , PANTETHINE , KAOLIN , NYLON-6 , LAURETH-4 , HYDROXYETHYLCELLULOSE , VP/EICOSENE COPOLYMER , SIMETHICONE , SODIUM POLYACRYLATE , PTFE , CAPRYLYL GLYCOL , HEXYLENE GLYCOL , PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE , POLYAMINOPROPYL BIGUANIDE , CHLORPHENESIN , PHENOXYETHANOL , [+/- MICA , TITANIUM DIOXIDE , IRON OXIDES  , BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE  , BLACK 2  , BLUE 1 LAKE  , CARMINE  , CHROMIUM HYDROXIDE GREEN  , CHROMIUM OXIDE GREENS , FERRIC AMMONIUM FERROCYANIDE, FERRIC FERROCYANIDE  , MANGANESE VIOLET  , ULTRAMARINES , YELLOW 5 LAKE

  
Mascara Bristles are spaced out and spiral out along the wand
Thoughts:
I haven't used the mascara as often as my other mascara's, but I can say it is long lasting and does not clump or make my lashes stick together. This mascara did not flake off through out the day and makes my lashes look long and full. The only down-side to the product is the amount of ingredients used to make it.
