I’ve loved getting my January and February Birchboxes so much that I figured I’d try Ipsy again. I tried Ipsy about 2 years ago and really liked it. The biggest difference between Birchbox and Ipsy is that Birchbox has samples of high-end products and Ipsy has full-size samples of drugstore products.
I received 2 leave-in conditioners in my February Birchbox, so I was kind of bummed to get another one. However, this Marc Anthony Leave-In Conditioner was by far the best of the three! It made my hair soft and shiny. It was like a cup of coffee for my hair! And a bonus that it’s less than $15 at your local drugstore! I’ll definitely purchase in the future.
I’m a HUGE fan of masks, but I’ve never heard of a primer mask. Most of the masks I use are at night. To be honest, I’m not really a fan of doing a mask in the morning before putting on makeup. I already have a hard time getting out the door on time, I definitely don’t have time for a mask. Anyways, I gave it a shot. First, the mask was huge! There was probably a 2-inch overage. When I took the mask off, I washed off the excess with cool water and dried my face. My face felt really dry. So dry that I put moisturizer and primer back on. Oh well.
I’ve seen this product used by a few of my favorite bloggers. I was excited to see it in my Ipsy bag this month. I can say that it is definitely a full coverage concealer. You could probably conceal a tattoo it’s so thick. The shade was a little too light, but it’s something I’ll keep for blemishes or dark eye circles.
I love Pacifica products! They are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. I’ve tried some of their skincare products and LOVED them. I was excited to try this eyeshadow pallet because purples, golds, and browns make my brown eyes pop! I won’t use brown and purple at the same time, but would be a good travel pallet for a variety of looks.
YAY for eye brushes! I can never have enough makeup brushes. This two-sided blending and shading brush was so soft. I had never heard of LUXIE before, so I did a quick Google search. Apparently all of their brushes are made of hypoallergenic, vegan and cruelty-free materials. Plus, they’re super cute with the rose gold handle!
Overall, I was really happy with my first Ipsy! I found a few new items that I’ll add to my beauty routine. Have you tried any of these products? Let me know!
