Happy Monday my dolls!
I wasn’t going to post this today but my box arrived over the weekend. I’m trying to not post on Mondays anymore, but the rest of the week is full and I wouldn’t have been able to share this with you until next week so…..yeah… 🙂
Theme: Alter Ego
I’m positive that Ipsy had this theme like two years ago? I guess it makes sense though, being October with Halloween right around the corner.. I think the products kind of went with the theme, but then I also feel like you can create an alter ego with pretty much anything.
- PÜR The Complexion Authority – Midnight Masquerade Palette
- IT Cosmetics – Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
- Farmacy Beauty – Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm
- Dermovia – Lace A Peel Black Bamboo Charcoal Peel Off Mask
- Kat Von D – Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Hawkwind
I saw the rest of the products for this month and I’m happy with the box variation I got because a few of those products I have received in previous boxes. The one product I know I won’t be using is the IT Cosmetics mascara. I tried a sample and didn’t like it so I’ll be saving it for a giveaway, which I know is way overdue and I’m so so sorry. I will do my best to make it happen sometime soon!
I’ve mentioned that we’ve received a bunch of PÜR products through Boxycharm which…I don’t know whether I like it or not. Great that I get to try new makeup, but we keep seeing this brand, so it makes me wonder if maybe Boxycharm and PÜR have some kind of contract in which Boxycharm has to feature their products every once in a while? I’m not really sure how subscription boxes work, but I’ve been thinking about looking into it for my own knowledge…
Aside from that little rant just now, I do think that this PÜR palette looks nice, I like that it has both face and eye makeup. BUT, my only beef with it is the lack of mattes.. Y’all know how I feel about shimmers…
I was really excited when I realized that the Farmacy product was a cleansing balm and not a moisturizer. Which don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried one of their moisturizers through Sephora and I really loved it, but I’ve never tried a cleansing balm, so this kind of product is new to me and I cannot wait to try it!
I’ve never heard of Dermovia, but I love charcoal products for skincare and this peel-off mask sounds like something I might like, hopefully peeling it off doesn’t hurt like hell.
And lastly, I know a lot of you aren’t on board with KVD anymore, but I’m still excited to try the formula of this lipstick because for a while everyone was raving about it and I don’t believe I’ve ever tried it.. Also, I think it’s nice to see her brand in a different subscription aside from Sephora, that way we get more variety.
