Another month, another bag!
Cirque Colors Nail Lacquer in XX (sample size, $5.80) ★★★
Of nail glitters, this seems to be pretty good: A lot of big glitters actually come out (I hate when they clump on the bottom of the bottle and all you get is tiny sparkles…) I’m not having a glitter moment, however, so I really haven’t fallen in love with the brand.
Épicé International Purifying Exfoliant (sample size, $9.70) ★★
This feels like I am washing my face with baking powder. It really exfoliates and I have to be careful not to scratch too hard! I did read on the website that it is those microbeads (which are supposedly bad for the environment) so I probably would not purchase on my own. The formula is neither drying nor too moisturizing, so that’s nice!
Figs & Rouge Hand Cream In Mango Mandarin (full size, $6.56) ★★★
Good lotion, cute package, smells very nice (but not like figs! that would have been nice!) I have a ton of tiny lotions, but I always love more, so this was a nice addition.
noyah Lipstick in Deeply in Mauve (sample size, $5.60) ★★★★
At first I was wary – I don’t wear a ton of true lipsticks (choosing stains instead) and the color could have been so random. BUT it really is the perfect dark fall color for my skin tone. The formula is creamy, but a little drying. Bonus: although, like all lipsticks, it slowly wears off, it does wear off evenly. I’ve never looked in the mirror and seen that weird color clumping that happens with some lipsticks! I’m glad it was a small sample – I doubt I’ll even use it all up, but it really is a perfect cold weather color!
Skone Cosmetics TATTOOED Waterproof Eyeliner (full size, $15.00) ★★
The felt tip is great for accuracy, although the formula is not super opaque – much better than a pencil, but maybe not as dark as a true liquid liner. It is rather long lasting (longer than my liquid liner or pencils) but it is not waterproof (I would never wear it in the pool!) so it comes off easily at night – which is great.
Ispy Total Cost: about $42.66 + the bag (love it!)
Ipsy Total Value (things I actually use and like!): $30.30. Eventually I do plan to use all of it, but I haven’t yet reached for the lotion or nail glitter – mostly because I’m trying to use of older lotions and nail polish first. So the immediate value is $30.30, but I do expect to use all of it!
