This month's Ipsy box was a mix of hits and misses. The lip gloss by Starlooks is just ok, the travel size hair spray will be good for travelling (duh), the mini microdermabrasion face scrub will go unused, because I'm super particular with my skincare, and don't want to risk it.
For only $10 I'm pretty happy with this box - that concealer is awesome, and I'm excited for the cream eye shadow too. If you want to give it a try, you can subscribe HERE.
There was a full-sized Mica brand (again, I only ever see this brand in subscription boxes....) eye shadow base. On the card it says it was worth $45, which seems crazy for a kind of random brand. I happily pay $20 for my Too Faced shadow insurance because I know it works incredibly well for me. But $45 for this?? Hmmmm...There was also a really pretty purple eye shadow pigment by Bella Pierre (another constant in subscription boxes), and a super bright pink blush by Ofra. Both are very pretty.
Most Boxycharms are great, but this wasn't my favorite. If you want to give it a shot you can subscribe HERE.
....and then there was the blush! It's by a brand called So Susan Cosmetics, which I'd never heard of. This blush is their Universal Blush and it is obscenely gorgeous!! I instantly tore into it, and started playing. The color is kind of hard to describe - almost a mauve, with peach and pink undertones, with just enough shimmer to give you a healthy glow.
Pardon the goofy face, Leila insisted on taking a picture ;)
The blush alone makes this month's Glossybox worth every penny! You can subscribe HERE.
The color is gorgeous (at first glance it's similar to the one from Be A Bombshell, but it's much prettier!) The application is simple - just pat on with your fingertips - and it lasts all day! I am so impressed with it!
