Today I got my Ipsy bag and once again I was super impressed!
This month's bag was different based on your profile and could have contained items from the following brands: Benefit, Coola, Demeter, derma/e, bh cosmetics, Nailtini, pop beauty & sexy hair.
I got the items below:
All sorts of fun!\
BH Cosmetics - California palettes $9.95/ value- $1.50??
So first up - an eyeshadow palette from BH Cosmetics. It has one shadow from each of their California Collection palettes. You can buy a full palette for $9.95 on their site (with their current sale) and it has 16 eyeshadows and 4 blushes.
As you can see they aren't super pigmented, but they are pretty colors and very soft. I built them up a bit, and over a primer they do quite well. Plus I love the size, perfect for the @ work makeup bag!
Derma/e Microdermabrasion Scrub: Full size $32.50 for 2oz./ 1oz value - $16.25
This stuff is smells divine - lemony fresh. Here's the description from their website: "This salon-perfect formula uses an exclusive crystal blend including Dead Sea Salt and Volcanic Sand (rich in Silica) to buff away dull surface cells, help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, and absorb excess skin oils. Enriched with natural astringents Lime and Lemon Peel, and antioxidants Grapeseed and Vitamin E, this fine treatment product retexturizes skin leaving it soft, smooth and younger-looking." The "grit" is medium in my opinion - not harsh like St. Ives (which is terrible for your face - seriously. That's why it's so cheap.)
I used a small bit on my hand - and it left it very soft. If you have normal skin I would say you could use this once a week. It's a bit pricey in my opinion for an exfoliant - but I will gladly use the 1 oz!
Coola Mineral Sunscreen: $36.00 for 1.7 oz/ .23oz = $4.87
I don't know much about Coola but here's the description from their website: "Keep the sun and environment at bay with this SPF 20 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen; a clear, Titanium Dioxide based formula (for those who are Zinc sensitive) made with 98% natural ingredients. Organic Acai Oil - high in Omegas-3/6/9, Vitamins B1/2/3, plus antioxidant Vitamins C and E - delivers a powerful defense against aging. Organic Sunflower Seed Extract promotes elasticity while organic Linseed Oil, containing Alpha-Linolenic Acids, reduces redness and irritation. The phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates, as organic Cucumber Extract calms skin."
- Paraben Free
- Ultra Sheer
- Water Resistant (40 minutes)
- No nano-sized particles
pop beauty Lip Crayon Full Size - $4.17 - Usually only sold in a set of 6 for $25
I got Coral Crush and it is a lovely color!
The consistency reminds me of the Revlon Balm Stains - and it's moisturizing like that, but it doesn't really leave that much of a stain. I wish there were more colors of these available individually.
Sexy Hair Weather Proof Spray 3.4 - $15.95/ 1.7 = $7.97
From their site:
"Big Sexy Hair Weatherproof Humidity Resistant Spray - Big Sexy Hair Weatherproof is a high-performance humidity resistant spray that promises to leave your hairstyles intact, removing any chance of humidity attacking mishaps."
Total Value of this months bag =$34.76
Once again I am so impressed and excited to use my goodies!
What did you get in your Ipsy bag?
