Bag content

  • Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass Fabulous Lip + Cheek Stain – I love, love, love, the sweet cherry smell of this tint! It puts me in a happy mood when I use it! The red stain color reminds me of the Benefit Benetint but the formula is quite different. This one is thicker, more gel-like, and not at all watery, which makes it easier to use and control especially when applied on the cheeks. It comes with a doe-foot applicator for precision application. The longevity? It seriously stays put on the lips/cheeks all day!
  • Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil Natural Sunscreen SPF 08 – OK, you can call me crazy but I've never heard of tanning oils before! Once I did my research, I was actually horrified that this product was put in the bag! Just read this:

    Tanning oils work by attracting and focusing the ultraviolet rays of the sun onto the skin. … the properties of tanning oils accelerate the process by intensifying the rays. As the UV rays penetrate the skin, they accelerate the melanocytes' ability to produce melanin. … Ultraviolet radiation has the ability to damage skin cells, which can mutate the cell's structure. These mutations can create a cancerous cell, which can lead to skin cancer.

    Livestrong.com

    Just wow. I'm sorry but this is reckless on Ipsy side. This type of products should not be sent out carelessly like this, at all. Skin cancer is a serious business and I can't imagine why anyone would want to promote it.

  • Befine Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 – Now this product I approve! One can never have enough moisturizer especially one with SPF. It's a cruelty-free product, too, so that's another plus. The light, creamy formula absorbs instantly and does not leave any sticky feeling on the skin afterwards. I like! :)
  • Pür Minerals Big Look Waterproof Extreme Mascara with Argan Oil – I've never tried a mascara with Argan Oil before. It is said to be loaded with Vitamin E, antioxidants, and omega 3 and 9 fatty acids to “hydrate and repair lashes”. Sounds great to me! I like that it has a waterproof and clump-free formula, however, it doesn't seem to hold a curl for my straight eyelashes very well.
  • Bareminerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Divine Wine – What a mouthful! ;D Now this one is the product I'm most excited about! It's a brownish taupe cream shadow that just glides on the lid and sets within seconds. Once set, it stays put all.day.long! The sample tube is so tiny but with this kind of product, a little does go a really long way. A light touch is all you need. I also like to use it as an eyeshadow base, too. Works great!

This month's bag is a cute neon pink bag that I find super adorable, with scalloped edges and felt lining. The faux leather is really soft, too. I think it's one of the cutest bags I have received so far. People have complained about the off-putting chemical smell of the bag but mine doesn't smell at all (phew!).

This month may be my last month with Ipsy, though. I have accumulated way too many samples over the years that I can't keep up anymore. I seriously need to downside my sample stash! Maybe one day I will re-sign up but I think it's time to let someone else down the line enjoy the fun, too! :)

  • I’ve tried that moisturizer before ! I really liked it.

  • Carolyn says:

    That is a very cute makeup bag indeed! Sounds like you got a few good products this month, but I completely feel you on stopping the subscription! For three months I had a Birchbox subscription, but often had mixed experiences with the samples and found myself not really using the majority of the samples :(.

    • Jaa says:

      I subbed to Birchbox for 3 months, too! I quit after receiving silly headbands all 3 months in a row! Uhm… ok, bye! LOL.

  • Fiona says:

    Such a cute bag Jaa. I think you have got lovely product.

  • Nice content if you ask me! Beauty boxes in other countries always seem to be so much better than the ones we get…

  • Sylirael says:

    The stain and the bag are my favourites, although the mascara gets automatic points for the fake water droplet thing (I absolutely love it. I don’t know why?).

    The tanning oil is an embarassment, honestly. It’s the very opposite of a beauty product really – all skin cancer risk aside (and that’s a hard thing to put aside) – tanning oil is how people end up with those terrifying old leather bag bodies, that make them look like an animated version of Lindow Man. Much as I feel very sorry for Lindow Man, and as interesting as he is, I really don’t feel compelled to try and replicate his look, if you know that I mean…

    • Jaa says:

      I love the water droplet thing, too! I think it’s kinda cool! Reminds me of the packaging of the MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection!

      Yep, I still can’t believe the tanning oil got sent out. The reference to Lindow Man is right on point!

  • Erin says:

    That stain is amazing!

  • Chris says:

    It’s a good thing you did your research on tanning oils! It’s a huge embarrassment to Ipsy to include that item. I hope one of their employees reads your post sometime.

    Have you checked out Eco Emi? I subscribe to their monthly boxes and I enjoy them.

  • Divya says:

    That oil was really a careless thing to do! I haven’t subscribed to any such boxes but sometimes feel tempted!

  • Krithi says:

    u got some really great products Jaa :)
