Listen up everyone! Ipsy is here! Honestly, I just can't seem to work up the excitement for this post because lately I just haven't been too surprised with the glambags and the goodies. I'm hoping that this month will be a better one but I know that's not guaranteed. I was looking forward to a Halloween themed month but this month's theme happens to be "Beauty Candy", let's see what it has to offer.
Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure
Épicé International Purifying Exfoliant
Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer in Feeling Very Cherry
Figs & Rogue Hand Cream in Rose Berry
ModelCo VOLUMEYES Extreme Black Mascara
I immediately gave away the lip gloss due to the color. I've seriously been receiving too many nude/mauve/pink lip glosses from Ipsy that it's time to move on!
I've never heard of Épicé International and it doesn't seem like a familiar brand to anyone I know. From what I've saw around the blogosphere, it seems to be a similar brand to proactiv. I think I may give it a try and pray that it's gentle with my sensitive/combination skin.
Now I am familiar with Nicole by OPI but I really do wish Ipsy was offering a nicer fall color. I understand that Halloween is coming up and maybe that was the theme they were aiming for with this color but it's just not me. It's way too dark of a red for me to put on my nails.
The hand cream has such a cute packaging that I wasn't disappointed in it even though it's not anything too major. It has a sweet scent and the consistency is great. I surely won't forget to slip this into my bag before classes.
I'm always fond of mascaras but I really wish this one was full size since it's quite annoying to fall in love with a deluxe size sample. This one wasn't the greatest that I've received but I can surely put up with it for awhile.
Overall I was once again introduced to new brands but as I've stated earlier, this bag was pretty bland. Hopefully Ipsy decides to step up their game soon otherwise I can't see us together for much longer. Maybe next month will be better. I can only hope!
