Better late than never, right? Let’s just say that I’ve been testing my Ipsy stuff extra hard this month. I’ve got a handful of goodies that I can’t wait to share with you, so let’s go!
Eau Thermale Avene
Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum
Wait, this is a hydrating serum? I couldn’t tell because this stuff dried my face into a raisin. My skin felt tight and flaky–definitely not the “zen relaxation” for my face that Ipsy promised.
Daily Safe BB
If the hydrating serum above was a disaster, this BB cream was a godsend. I’ve been a huge fan of Supergoop’s BB for years, but I’m switching loyalties now. Seriously, this stuff is amazing: my skin felt soothed, and the coverage is amazing. I’m planning a trip to Super H Mart to see if I can get some more Dr. G. products!
Superhero Mascara in Super Black
This mascara is touted for its “proprietary elastic stretch technology.” While I have no idea what that means, WOW did this do wonders for my eyelashes! I swiped this on and magically all of my lashes were plumped and unclumped. I’m in love.

Matteluster Lipstick in Rose Naturelle
When I first tried out this lipstick, I absolutely hated it. Despite the nice way it made my lips feel, the color seemed far too dark for me. When I put it on to take these pictures, though, I found that I actually really liked it! I think it depends on what you’re wearing. This color won’t be good for summer, but I think it’ll work nicely with my dark and muted fall duds.
Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment
I’ll be honest: I didn’t even try this stuff. It said on the back that you should blow dry your hair after you massage in a little bit of this…and I never, ever blow dry my hair. Because I bleach it, I take care not to do much damage to my tresses, which means I’ve given up curling wands, straighteners, and even hair dryers. Oh well.
