yay I finally subscribed to the Ipsy bag! I got my July bag quite late but I still wanted to post a little somethin’ somethin’ on what I got.
The star of the show HAS to be the Gudetama bag that all the sample products came in. I’ve always been a fan of Gudetama and absolutely adore this little egg. The bag is sturdy and a great size for makeup or toiletries. Most importantly, it’s just so darn cute! I will definitely be using this when I am travelling next month.
Beau Gachis Illuminator Brush
The first item from the bag is an “illuminator brush” by the brand, Beau Gachis. I have never heard of it but my first impression of the brush is that it’s just a normal, synthetic, soft brush haha. It’s hard to review brushes right off the bat, I will have to play with this one and see how it applies and blends out my concealer.
TreStiQue Mini Crayon Concealer
Super cute packaging. I am not a huge fan of this concealer-it’s definitely a light coverage concealer in my opinion. It is buildable but the formula is just not for me. It sat on my skin and didn’t really blend out. The shaded matched me perfectly though! I might give this another try…
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
I tried applying this over my hands and face a few times actually. Not a big fan, to be honest. It is, indeed, a very light moisturizer which I appreciate but the texture was almost watery. Maybe a little too light for my taste. I can see how some people would enjoy this. It’s simply not for me. I might gift this to a friend!
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel
This is the only one I have not tried yet. I was looking up reviews and this product did okay. I do like the fresh scent and the concept of a cleansing gel. I mostly stick to micellar waters, but will give this a go!
Ciate Gel-Kohl Pencil Liner
I don’t use pencil liners very often anymore but I thought this one was pretty decent. It applies like butter and it does come with a smudging application on the other end. The downside is that it is not waterproof. My eyelids are naturally oily so this would not work for me. But I think it would be great for people who don’t greasy lids haha.
All in all, I thought the products were decent. Again, I am just in love with the Gudetama bag-it is obviously my favorite thing from Ipsy this month haha. But I do love trying new products and giving my take on them. Can’t wait for the next one!
