Another month, another Ipsy bag. Maybe it’s because I’ve actually bothered to rate my stuff on the Ipsy website, but lately, I’ve been getting some seriously good stuff. Let’s dive in!
Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer
For someone who likes to play around with her hair as much as I do, it might surprise you to know I’ve never used a heat protectant before. That changed when I started using this stuff. This spray is supposed to detangle, nourish, strengthen, soften, cut drying time, add shine, reduce frizz, and protect against heat and environmental damage. Honestly, I’m not sure if this really lives up to all of those claims, but my hair was definitely shiny and frizz-free whenever I used it. It’s fun to use for now, but I don’t think I’d reorder.
Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask
For the last week or so, I’ve been doing the 10-step Korean skincare regimen (day and night!), and masks like this fit in nicely into my new routine. This stuff works; my skin was very smooth after I used it, and my pores seemed to have vanished into thin air. It reminds me a lot of the Queen Helene mask, which I’ve always liked.
Dirty Little Secret
Blush in Kitty Pink
Yes yes yes yes yes! I’ve been wanting a peachy blush just like this one and now I have it! The color looks great with my new hair color–I don’t think it would have worked as well if I were still a bleach blonde. Plus, it’s not super pigmented. You can build the color to suit the look you’re going for.
I just…I don’t really use eye shadow. I can’t say if it’s great or not since I don’t use eye shadow brushes anyway!
Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Rose
First off, the color is really, really pretty. I love rosy colors like this one! And it’s a nice kind of matte–not too dry and crusty like other matte lipsticks can be. The only thing is that you have to be careful! Only use a little bit or else you’ll be licking lipstick off your teeth.
Overall, a great bag this month! Do any of you get Ipsy bags? What did you think of yours?

Great review!! I got ipsy once a year or two ago, and it wasn’t that great. it looks like they have stepped up their game since!! Btw I went self-hosted so if you want, you can check out my new site
You know, Ipsy was really touch and go for me at first. I don’t really know why I stuck with it but now I’m usually pretty happy with what I get. I HAVE been thinking about trying something else out though!

Just had to pop in to say I am totally IN LOVE with your new hair color!
Thank you! I’m super happy with how it turned out 🙂
Ohhh, I need that heat protector spray! My hair has been SO frizzy lately! I don’t know what to do about it…
I recently started getting birch box and I LOVE it! I also get the Sephora play box, which is seriously so good. I’m kind of in love with beauty boxes now haha.

Yay you’re back!
I’ve been thinking of trying out other beauty boxes lately, so thanks for letting me know Birchbox and the Sephora Play boxes are good! I used to get Birchbox a few years ago and didn’t like it so much, but I’m willing to give it another shot.
Just dropped in to say that I looove your new hair colour! It looks so natural on you, just perfect :).
Thank you! It’s actually pretty close to my natural hair color…I think. I haven’t actually seen it in about a decade, but I’m pretty sure this is it 😉
Your new hair color is so pretty! I love the big, loose waves. I’ve been eyeing a couple of beauty box subscriptions (deciding between Birchbox and Ipsy) and your reviews definitely are tempting me. I like the idea of getting a little surprise in the mail every month.
Thanks! And I love getting a little something in my mailbox once a month. I may switch to a different box or maybe get a couple of subscriptions simultaneously, but I can tell you that Ipsy is pretty good…as long as you’re diligent about reviewing your stuff on their website. I’ve noticed that I’ve gotten better stuff in the last few months and I think that’s why.
This is great!!
