Ipsy│May 2017


This month's Ipsy bag totally gave me summer vibes. The beauty products I received mainly consisted of neutral and golden bronze hues, which are always on trend come summer. Can we take a moment to admire the super cute bag with the ice cream print on it? Such a great summer accessory!

Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude
This nude lipstick is right up my alley, and the matte finish ensures that the color stays put. I don't think this lipstick is the smoothest to apply, though. So prepped and moisturized lips are a must when it comes to this lip color, or else any dryness or flakes may be emphasized.

Mana Kadar Cosmetics Radiance Split Pan Bronzer And Highlighter Duo
I am all for a good bronzer and a highlighter, and these ones are super nice-especially if radiant looking skin is what you're after. Both powders have smooth textures, are easy to work with and contain a pretty shimmer finish that adds the perfect glow to the skin. Pigmentation doesn't disappoint, and longevity isn't too bad.

Royal & Langnickel MODA Precision Angled Brush
This brush is one of my newest favorites since it blends out product like a dream. Contouring the nose and applying concealer under the eyes are just a few ways to use it. But I actually like this brush to apply my eye primer (MAC's Painterly Paint Pot is my favorite at the moment). This brush does a really good job at evenly spreading and blending out the eye primer on my lids, for a smooth finish every time. The hairs are made of synthetic fibers and they are super soft. I love it!

Peek Beauty Metalimatte in A-Boo
I'm usually not one for cream blushes, but this one kind of surprised me. The sheer, peachy-pink color gives cheeks a radiant-looking flush that looks like it came from within. I like how easy this is to apply, and how weightless the formula feels on the skin. I can see myself reaching for this blush lots this summer, since the warmer months call for minimal makeup and lighter products.

Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette
The eye shadows in this Ipsy-exclusive palette are infused with coconut water, natural minerals and promise to be crease-resistant. The shadows compliment each other beautifully and a have a pretty shimmer finish. Since I have eye shadows highly similar to these in my stash, I think I am going to pass this palette on to my niece, who loves neutral eye shadows like these.
