  1. Hempz Lip Balm – I love me some lip balm and I was a little hesitant to use this but tried it this morning and really loved it. It wasn’t too thick and wasn’t too balmy. I have a ton of lip balms but will definitely keep this in my work bag to have with me.
  2. Coconut Micellar Cleansing Water – So I had never heard of this until I received it in this Ipsy bag, but it hydrates your face and can actually also remove makeup. I have not tried to, but will when I have my makeup on. I am intrigued by this item and will continue to use it to see how I like it.
  3. Ofra Costmetics Blush – I received this item in “Candy Apple” and I love it! In the swatches on my arm, it is the second swatch. I really wanted to see the consistency and color against my skin. I love it and highly recommend it. I have received a lot of OFRA items in my Ipsy bags and have really grown attached to them.
  4. Realher Lipstick – WOW is all I can say. This lipstick is so creamy and beautiful. I got it in the color “Mauve” and it is the first swatch color on my arm, pictured above. It honestly is so beautiful and I couldn’t get over the creaminess and its moisturizing effects.

There was SUPPOSED to be a brush in my Ipsy bag, but for whatever reason it did not come. I contacted Ipsy and hope to receive what I should have. This has never happened before so I don’t fault them, it could have been left out by accident but will see what their customer service department says. Also, I was upset because I usually receive my bag by the 7th of each month and did not receive it until the 16th this month.

Everyday Makeup Items

Makeup Details:

  1. Tartiest Glow Pallette  – I use the dark powder “sculpt” to contour my face & use “strobe” sometimes for my highlight

2. Rose Gold ELF Palette– Rose gold colors look really good with brown eyes, so this palette is my go to

3. Stila Eye Shadow Palette – No longer available; very similar here

4. Master Fix Loose Powder – Love this Powder to bake over my concealer

5. Tarte Radiance Drops – GUYS… this stuff is amazing. I use it after my I put my matte lipstick on for a little shine, and I also put a drop in and mix it with my foundation for a glowy look, I LOVE it!

6. SOBA Eyeshadow

7. “Sun Dance” Bronzer – I have tried so many bronzers and never found one I liked, until I got this Bronzer.

8. 222 “True Beige” Foundation – This might be a little too dark for me since I don’t have my usual tan, but usually this color matches me year round. It also stays matte and really nice on my face which is always dry.

9. “Sweet Cherry” Lip Exfoliator – I use this every single day. It helps to remove dry skin from your lips and help to exfoliate them. It is my go to especially before putting lipstick on.

10. “Santorini” Highlighter – I always use this Highlighter unless I forgot it at home. The shine is AMAZING! I HIGHLY recommend it.

11. “Deep” Brow Pencil

12. Make up Sponges –  here & here

13. Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara – No longer available; similar here

14. Maybelline Concealer (Contour Stick)

15. Tickled Pink Blush

16. Brush Set – Similar here & here

I use most of this makeup every time I do my makeup. I especially love some of these items like the Kylie Cosmetics highlighter, the Tarte items, and my mascara, and cannot do without them. I usually have a good mix with some higher end items and drug store items. If the product is good I will usually splurge to get it time and time again.

Is there any makeup you have wanted to try but are not sure how well it would work? Let me know if the comments below!
