I know, I know. A few months ago I went on a long rant about how I was never going to do Ipsy posts again, yet here I am, unzipping a fresh new one. Well, I’m doing it for you. I’m not paid to review this stuff, so think of me as your brutally honest friend who’s brutally honest because she loves you. We all need that friend.
Sheet Mask Duo – Purifying Black Charcoal Mask and Nature Green Tea Collagen Essence Mask
I’m still trying to get into sheet masks. They’re slimy and hard to unfold, and then it’s a challenge to align them with your eyes, nose, and mouth. And for what? I’ve never really noticed a difference in my skin after using a mask, and these were no exception. Let’s be real: the only reason my skin looks so good right here is because Snapseed is a gift from God.
Coconut Solid Brush Cleaner
As someone who regularly cleans her makeup brushes with dish soap, this was a foreign concept to me. Now that I’ve been civilized, though, there’s no going back. This cleaner smells really good, but what’s more important is that it does a great job getting all the gunk off my foundation and blush brushes–and it leaves them softer than a baby’s butt afterward.
NYX Professional Makeup
Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry
This lipstick, guys. The color exactly matches its name, and that pretty raspberry tint lasts a long time (it was even there after my daily McMuffin!). The best part is that it’s so jam-packed full of hydration that I don’t have to reach for my Chapstick when I have it on.
Absolute New York
Nano Liner Ultra Fine Precision Liquid Liner in Black
Whenever I try to wing out my eyeliner, it usually takes me about five or six tries and ends with me sadly tossing a used makeup wipe in the trash along with the remains of my dignity. You know how many tries it took me with this liner? ONE. The tip is so precise that it’s almost impossible to screw up. And it lasts all day!
Mineral Eye Shadow in You’re Toast
Dear Lord, I hate loose eye shadows. The tiniest breath of air will send shimmers through the air, and not in a cute way. In a “crap, now I have to clean the sink again” kind of way. I also didn’t really like the color (too orangey/peachy for my skin).
So that’s it! Have you guys tried any of these products? What do you think?
