Hey my dolls!
You read the title right! Two unboxings (plus first impressions) in one post! It would have been three with Sephora, but it always arrives a day or two later than the date they give me…
I would do unboxings in one post more often but unfortunately, all my subscriptions don’t arrive at the same time, and it just so happens that these two did. But anyway, let’s unbox/reveal these subscriptions to see what I got! 🙂
IPSY GLAM BAG
The theme this month is “Create”, I think the designer is @pewitte ? Their makeup bag is a black and white cartoon of women with no faces, but from different backgrounds/cultures, that’s neat. What’s not neat is the lack of pattern in their shirts/tops. They’re repetitive, and it wasn’t that fun to color in to be honest. That an we only got two colors. I don’t really have other markers so I couldn’t do much with it.
I don’t want to be mean, but it’s my least favorite bag.. I do like the pink zipper, kind of.
- NIP+FAB Glycolic Scrub Fix
GoldFaden MD Facial Detox Mask
City Color Cosmetics Glow Duo
tarte Cosmetics Sex Kitten Eyeliner
Contour Cosmetics Lip Kit Pencil in Stud
To be honest, I wasn’t at all impressed with this month’s bag. I know that NIP+FAB is a brand that a lot of people love, personally I have yet to try it, so I’m hoping it’s good. But I don’t care much about everything else. Possibly the eyeliner because it’s from tarte, but I do have so many eyeliners lol.
I guess we will see how these products truly measure up. This bag commemorates my one year anniversary with Ipsy and I’ve been thinking about unsubscribing for many reasons but I guess the final verdict will be in when I get next month’s bag. It was supposed to be this month’s bag that would give me the deciding factor, but I redeemed a product and I’m not getting it until next month, so I’ll let you guys know if I’ll be unsubscribing!
Theme: Bae Cation
There’s really nothing to say about the box, except for the fact that it’s sturdy and thick and it’s padded really well to keep all the products from moving around too much and getting damaged.
- Pür The Complexion Authority Eyeshadow Palette
- Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara
- South Mane Beauty Under Eye Gels
- The Vintage Cosmetic Company Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set
- Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush in Hush Blush
I’m only familiar with Pür Cosmetics and Pretty Vulgar, but guyssss!!! That gorgeous eyeshadow palette, whaaaaaaa?!! I believe it was a collab with Boxycharm, and I absolutely love it! The eyeshadow palette alone was one of many reasons I subscribed to Boxycharm, they did not let us down this month as EVERYONE got this palette.
I think the blush shade I got will suit me, I don’t know for sure, but fingers crossed it does because it’s one of those brands I always wanted to try but they only sell online I think.
I’ve never heard of Butter London, South Mane Beauty, and The Vintage Cosmetic Company, but I am excited to try those products too! So awesome to have gotten under eye gels because I love them! The brushes feel super soft, and you guys already know, the mascara will be left for another time because I have a small stash to get through first.
I’m very excited about all of the products in my Boxycharm, but not so much with my Ipsy. I hope I like this month’s Sephora as well. I can’t wait to try everything!
