Today, I’ll be showing you all the wonderful things that arrived inside that beautiful bright pink packaging in the mail! It’s Ipsy unboxing time! I’m excited! My favorite Ipsy bags are always their pretty, summery ones. Let’s dig in!
I really like the bag! Very summery and colorful. Also, I love the little card that they included -the floaties they have just look so cute!
Firstly, I pulled out a lip product; Read My Lips Lipstick from Teeez Cosmetics in the shade Killing Me Softly. I love how cute the colorful skulls on the packaging are! The tube it comes in reminds me of the packaging from Colourpop’s Lippie Stix. This lip product is a bright coral-y, peach-y pink. It is a satin, but slightly matte finish. The color is perfect for Summer, but I found that it’s SO pigmented and creamy that it makes it a little hard to apply without smearing all over my face. Maybe it’s just me -I tend to be a little slow in the lipstick applying department. heh. The color is extremely bright, which isn’t my go-to look and it also settles into all of the lines on my lips. It has an odd, chemically smell, which I’m not very fond of. Overall, I think it’s a cute product, but I won’t reach for it very often.
Next, I opened a brown 2-in-1 Shadow/Liner from Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics. I do not have eyeliner set on my account preferences as something that I want sent to me, but somehow, I end up with one in every bag that I receive, so I wasn’t super excited upon discovering this. However, I do like the product and think it’s a pretty liner and shadow!
I then found some Jor’el Parker perfume in the scent Classico. I normally am not a fan of high-end or fancy perfumes because the smell is so overpowering, but I actually really, really enjoy this one! It smells amazing! It isn’t too flowery or strong; it’s right in between sweet and fresh. They describe the scent as: “Exotic, inspiring, and full of surprises, Classico whisks you away from the day-to-day. Indulge in the spicy seduction of Indian Tuberose, the striking and sweet sensation of Turkish Cyclamen and the purifying calm of Spanish Mandarin.” My nose isn’t refined enough to detect whatever Turkish Cyclamen smells like, but I absolutely love the scent!
Next, I pulled out some Pür~lisse Pur-Bright Ultra Skin Brightening Serum. I have really sensitive skin, but I’m hoping that this will work well on it! The serum benefits are:
- Brightens skin tone.
- Evens out skin without the use of harsh chemicals.
- Decreases the appearance of age spots and sun damages.
Lastly, I discovered some Crown Brush tweezers in my bag, which can always come in handy. This is something I know I’ll use!
The retail prices of these products:
Jelly Pong Pong Liner – $16
J’orel Parker Classico Mini Roller Perfume (.29 oz.) – $21
Crown Brush Professional Tweezers – $17.49
The total retail price of this bag is *drumroll*… $152.49!
This Ipsy bag cost only $10… that’s a pretty insane difference! You do have to take into account that the brightening serum is a sample size in the bag, but since they don’t sell it in that size, I had to include it’s retail price in full size, which is much larger.
Overall, I think this bag is pretty good. The products are great, but some of them are things that I won’t use very often. There were a couple of full-size things included, which I loved! I like the bag itself since it’s so summery! The value of it’s products compared to the $10 I paid for the bag is pretty incredible!
If you haven’t signed up for Ipsy yet, I think that it’s a pretty amazing subscription! It costs $10 per month and is set up for your preferences on products you’d like to receive. If you’d like to try it out, you can sign up here!
