Hey hey, it’s MJ,
Well I took a week off because I was missing all of the things that I wanted to write about this month and I am finally in possession of all of those things, yay! I feel like there are probably things I am forgetting to mention, but happy official summer everyone. Here’s hoping that everyone is having a great time!
So let’s get right into it, I am going to talk about the bag and then go into the products like I usually do in every other IPSY post that I have on this blog, there are so many that you can read up on if you really want to.
It’s a dusty pink almost salmon color and looks like it has stickers on it, it looks like some of the middle schoolers water bottles and it’s kind of a mood. I have been watching a lot of TikTok recently and it has taken over my life. It’s a problem, thus bag is super cute though and it’s going to go into the drawer that I have all the rest of my bags in. One day I will take a picture of that drawer and y’all can see how much of a small bag hoarder that ISPY has made me over the years since I became a member.
So what did I get in the bag?
Benefit Cosmetics The Porefessional: Super setter Pore-Minimizing Setting Spray:
I picked this one because I am almost out of setting spray. I got a lot of setting spray this month though in different subscriptions so I am pretty set for now; I’m not upset about it though. I have heard really good things about this product over the years, so finally getting a chance to try it is really exciting. The last setting spray that I was using only worked when it felt like it, so I am going to give this one a chance tomorrow (today for y’all) because I have to wear makeup.
Evenprime Barrier Serum:
Serums have become a new staple in my skincare routine. I have found so many good ones in the last year or so and this one claims to be really good at shielding your skin from all sorts of not so great things; even blue light. I feel like I should worry about blue light more, but I don’t. I am excited to give this one a try as well, it seems like it has all of those things that you want on your skin and all of the big words that mean beneficial things for your skin.
Pretty Vulgar Undercover Concealer in 60:
It’s a nice concealer, my problem with it is that it is too dark for me. I swatched it and it oxidized a lot darker than I would have wanted it to to be a concealer that I use on a daily basis. This one was for sure a miss for me, I am like really pale and that means that I tend to look for the lightest shade or the second lightest shade when it comes to concealer and this shade just doesn’t mesh with my skin tone.
Mazi Balancing Multi-Effect Facial Cleanser:
I like the packaging and I am always on the lookout for travel sized cleansers that I can take with me when I go places. I feel like recently that I have been bouncing around from cleanser to cleanser and I am still looking for my “holy grail”. I know eventually I will find it, or I will just keep changing when I run out of my current cleanser.
Glow on 5th Rose Gua Sha:
I had to get a replacement for this one because there is a crack in the one that showed up in my bag, it’s on its way to me and IPSY’s customer service is always amazing. I have been wanting a Gua Sha for well over a year now so having one will be super nice and make sure that I actually want to spend the money on getting a real quartz one. This one is plastic; which might be the reason that it cracked. I am all for helping depuff and help with lymphatic drainage in the face. I am so for giving all of these things a try. I have used this one even with the crack in it and I really like it already, I am just waiting for the non-cracked on to show up to my house.
Overall this bag was fine, there was some things that I was excited about and some that I wasn’t really too excited about. The concealer was a disappointment because it’s the wrong shade for me, not all products can be perfect though and each month you get to learn what you like and don’t like when it comes to products.
Have a great rest of your week and I will see y’all over the weekend with another post! -MJ
