NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Pink Lust
When I saw this beautiful, pink tube of lip colour in my bag, I nearly had an out-of-body moment. I have been wanting to try NYX’s Suede Cream Lipsticks for a while now, and was thrilled to finally be able to try it. Although the word ‘suede’ made me think this colour would be matte, it was actually quite shiny and glossy. The colour did transfer easily, but left behind a delightful pink stain once most of it rubbed off over the course of the day. I can’t wait to try this lipstick in a different (possibly lighter) shade.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I LOVE when I get a makeup brush in my Ipsy bag. They have always been great quality brushes, and I always feel like I am getting my money’s worth with a brush. This loose powder brush by Me Me Me is soft as a feather and glides over my skin so smoothly. It works perfectly with my matte finishing powder and leaves me with even looking skin.
Marc Anthony 3 Day Smooth
I was weary of this product at first, as I prefer smoothing products that you can spray on to your hair rather than having to massage it in with your hands. I find many smoothing products to be very slippery and leave my hands feeling very greasy, but this product was a pleasant surprise. It had a light, floral scent, and did not leave any unwanted residue on my hands. I didn’t notice much difference in the smoothness of my hair, but the real test will come once we start getting more humid and rainy weather.
Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold
Although Ipsy notes that this product is meant to be layered, I’ve been using it as a blush (the darker shade) and a highlighting powder (the lighter shade) and love it even more than its original function. I’ve also read in the reviews that some people are using the lighter shade as an eyeshadow, and guess what? It looks great on my eyes, too! It just goes to show that with a little experimentation, you can make any product your own and create some fun, new looks!
Vera Mona Lotus Eyeshadow in Clover
This soft, peach eyeshadow was a welcomed pop of colour to the eyeshadows I usually receive in my Ipsy bags. It pairs perfectly with my brown and neutral eyeshadows to give my eyes an extra pop of colour and shimmer.
