Now on to the products!
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Finishing Powder – 3 g Value $9.67
I was so excited to see this powder in my bag! I have heard amazing things about the entire IT makeup line, and was dying to try this pressed powder.
The translucent powder is designed to help mattify skin, hide pores, and give you an airbrushed like finish. For me I find that this powder definitely delivered! Matte finish? Check! Hidden pores? for the most part. I can still see them, but they are less noticeable. Airbrushed finish? Yep! This gave my makeup a flattering blur effect, and my skin felt a little more silkier to the touch, too.
I have an oilier complexion as well and usually I find that half way through the day I need to dab with oil free paper and reapply my powder. With IT bye bye Pores Pressed Powder I didn’t have this problem!
Context Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream – FULL SIZE! Value $35
FULL SIZED! How many times can I say it! This formula is lightweight, hydrating, absorbs quickly, is fragrance free, and ingredient-conscious! Pretty much a dream eye cream!
Chella Eyebrow Pencil in Beautiful Blonde – Full Size! Value $18.00
This pencil is the perfect consistency. It’s got a creamy texture that goes on smooth—but it’s not so soft that it gets everywhere but your brows. Not a brow pro? No prob. The ultra-fine tip makes it easy to fill in and define your hairs, and it doesn’t need sharpening ever.
This version does not have a spoolie attachment to brush and blend out the color, however there is a version you can buy that does include the spoolie. Or if you are like me you already have 10 in your makeup bag you can use!
Hey Honey Trick or Treat: Active Propolis Cream Concealer – 8ml Value $19.20
Your skin will thank you for using this concealer! It’s light and hydrating, yet build-able for those days where you may need just that bit of extra love.
It’s made with active propolis. Active what? That’s an ingredient honey bees collect from flowers. It helps restore your skin’s structure and protects against damage. Thanks, bees! It’s also got Amino acids, vitamin E, and nourishing oils.
JM Solutions Water Luminous Jelly Cleanser – 1.01ml Value $4.98
The jelly-like formula feels so freshing on your skin, and then bubbles up like crazy when mixed with water. It’s made with hyaluronic acid (lots of it) which helps keep your skin hydrated even after you wash it off. It deep cleans, but it’s way gentle so you can use it all the time
This wash is perfect if you have sensitive skin!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $86.85. (And it is great for a $10 beauty subscription!) Even better, all these items are great fits for me, and I got to try some new products/brands that I love!
I will definitely be continuing with my Ipsy subscription and can’t wait to see what next month brings!
