Formula X Nail Polish in Wingwoman
I was so excited to see another polish by Formula X in my bag! This was the third time receiving one of their pretty shades, and although I would usually be a bit disappointed in receiving duplicate products from Ipsy, all three have been different colours. This little bottle goes a long way, and the high quality of the polish means you can expect a chip-free manicure for days.

Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush
I love when my makeup products have dual uses, so I was thrilled to see this cute blush compact also included a mirror! At first, I was worried that the colour would be a bit too dark for me, but it has a sheer quality to it that allows you to layer until you find your desired shade.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Fireball
Finally! Ipsy hooked me up with a bright and fun colour for the summer! This peachy-gold shimmering eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous, goes on super smooth, and (as a fun bonus) transitions to a pink hue depending on the light. This was the first time every trying an Urban Decay product, even though this brand has been around for years, and it definitely won’t be the last!

Royal & Langnickel MODA Crease/Smudge Brush
If you’ve been following my Ipsy reveiws for a while now, you’ll now how much I love getting brushes. This beautiful brush is a brand new product from Royal & Langnickel and I was instantly drawn to its bold, bright colour. It also makes my morning makeup routine a breeze – one side blends my shadow perfectly, and with a quick flip, the other side fills in my creases.

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray
I left this review until the very end because I was very disappointed when I pulled this product out of my Ipsy bag. Many months ago, I received a beach spray product by another company, and it did nothing for my hair – my hair is too thin and too short to get good results. So, I rated it poorly in my Ipsy profile thinking I would never receive this product again (isn’t that what their rating function is for??). I was wrong. I should have prefaced this review by saying that I LOVE Marc Anthony products. I have both received them in previous Ipsy bags and bought them on my own. But once again, this particular product just wasn’t for me.

Jersey Shore Spa Anti Aging Lip & Hand Polish
This polish couldn’t have come at a better time! My hands have been suffering from the harsh, cold, winter weather, and these product has done a wonderful job at revitalizing my sad skin. The brown sugar crystals gently exfoliate your skin, while coconut oil moisturizes and leaves your hands feeling super soft. Bonus – it’s all natural, so if you use it on your lips, too, it tastes great (you can see me giving it a try in my video below)!

Chella Lip Pencil in Passionate Pink
Chella: hello, beautiful! This soft, reddish-pink colour glides on smoothly and leaves your lips looking perfectly kissable. This product lasted far longer than your average moisturizing lip colour, and the colour is the perfect shade for a daytime look.

Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment Powder in Sierra Nevada
This soft, pigmented powder is the perfect addition to finish off your eye shadow look. It can be used sparingly for just a hint of shimmer during the day, or amped-up for a glamourous evening look. I love adding it when I use my neutral brown and bronze shadows.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil
I was very weary of trying this product when I read the word ‘oil’ in the name. I hate (yes, I know that is a strong word) applying greasy or oily products to my face, so I applied this product with caution. But before I even had a chance to complain, it had completely absorbed into my skin, and my foundation glided on with ease. I am a newly converted believer in primer oils!

Luxie Flat Definer Brush
I am always thrilled to see a new makeup brush in my ipsy bag – a brush alone is usually worth the cost of the entire bag! This vegan, cruelty-free brush is super soft and is perfect for applying my gel eyeliner. And if you head over to their site and sign up for their email list, you will receive a coupon code for 20% your order. Score!

theBalm Cosmetics Mr. Write (Now) Eyeliner Pencil
I was thrilled to see another item by theBalm Cosmetics in my bag. A few months ago, I received one of their matte lip colours, and they quickly became one of my favourite cosmetic companies. This time around, I received their eyeliner pencil in Jac – a shimmering copper liner. It goes on smoothly and lasts all night, making it another slam dunk from theBalm!

City Color Eyeshadow Trio
This trio is the perfect combination of colours for an effortless, neutral day look. The shadow lasted all day, and had just the perfect hint of shimmer. And I loved that this colour trio was exclusively offered to Ipsy bag subscribers.

Beau Gachis Paris Smudge Brush
Makeup brushes are always a welcome addition to my collection! This handcrafted beauty is super soft and blends my eye shadow with ease.

Skyn Glacier Cleansing Cloths
After rocking your favourite makeup all day, don’t forget to cleanse your skin so it stays fresh and has time to breathe! These cleansing cloths not only smell great and do an amazing job at removing your makeup, but they don’t require any water so they’re easy and fast to use. My skin feels smooth and refreshed after using these babies!

Mitchell And Peach Body Cream
I’ll be honest – when I saw another body cream in my bag, I was a little bit disappointed. I have received so many creams from ipsy that I simply cannot use them fast enough. But then I tried this softly scented version, and rejoiced! Finally, a body cream that didn’t leave a greasy residue on my skin (nothing makes me squirm more that greasy creams). Absolutely loving this one!
