Dear Lovely Reader,
Ipsy came in a beautiful gold wrapping (instead of the usual hot pink) and brought some news along with its beautiful beach themed bag that reads “Good Vibes Only”. A great thought to keep in mind for the rest of the year, not just the summer!
There is a booklet that features an IPSY Creator and YT beauty guide named Gabriel Zamora. Within are pictures of some of the well-known brand products that IPSY carries that you can also buy — and gain points on that, in turn, will pay out into cash for you — called IPSY Cash. You have the option to either have IPSY cut you a check or send it to your PayPal account, which is very convenient. Based on what you buy, the points add up, and cash back – which you can either apply to another purchase or gift yourself the cash back.
Would you like to see what is within the August IPSY bag for me this month? Let’s see:
First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay— Red Clay? Gotta try! The cleanser is the color of red clay and smells of rosemary oil. It’s to clean your skin without stripping it.
theBalm Cosmetics theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha is a pale peachy eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone or cheek bone or use as a neutral base for the eyelids.
EYEKO Black Magic Mascara Deluxe – can never have enough black mascara! water resistant and cruelty-free in a squeezy tube. With Keratin and Shea Butter, it promotes that it will curl your lashes and has a great brush that curves just like your natural lashes would over your eye.
Naked Cosmetics HD Finishing Translucent Powder comes with a tip to pack a little extra of this on the upper lid line in order for eyeliner to go on more smoothly. I always appreciate the quick makeup tips that IPSY puts in its makeup card/brochure/website.
SLMissGlam – T35 Precise Blending Brush – I always appreciate a makeup tool, especially brushes that work. Silky soft and cruelty-free!
Overall, I’m very pleased with the selection and can’t wait to try them all out!
