Ipsy MAY 2015

I'm pretty damn happy with this month's bag, it also came with one of my favourite bags yet! This is what I got.

Urban Decay
24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil + BONUS Revolution High-Color Lipgloss

Get primed and ready for action. Urban Decay's long-lasting, waterproof liner glides on smoothly to prime AND define—for long-lasting lip color and clean lines. Smooch. Pout. Smack. Nibble. Lick. 24/7 stays put through everything (yes, EVERYTHING) you do. When you use this liner to fill in your lips completely, it primes them for lipstick or gloss, grabbing on to color to help it last.

Next, finish the bad girl beautiful look with a sample of Urban Decay's brand new Revolution High-Color Lipgloss—insanely intense color with high shine. The high-coverage, ultra-pigmented formula lays down all the color you crave in one coat.

This lippie is also laced with Hilurlip™, which defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller. -- IPSY

I don't usually opt for the shiny glosses BUT if it's high pigmented then I'm all for it. The sample colours they gave are gorgeous and I think both colours will be a hit. They don't feel too sticky and are moisturizing on the lip. I didn't notice any bleeding or featuring with the 24/7 lip gliding pencil but will be testing this out more.

Eyebrow Color Pencil (Tantalizing Taupe)

The fine tip on this sleek European-designed mechanical pencil has a creamy consistency that glides into place and can also be lightly smudged for a more natural look. Perfect for any color brow, especially blondes and greys. --IPSY
Man, I'm really loving this brand. This is such a great eyebrow pencil. It's small to get really nice precise lines but easy to fill. I will say this colour is on the warm side so unfortunately it doesn't suit me but it's definitely going in my makeup kit. Chella, please make a grey colour!!!! I don't know why North American brands tend to opt for warmer browns when there are so many ashy brown hair colours here. ;___;

The density of the brush allows for an even application without any wasted product and does not absorb the product into the bristles.  --IPSY
I like this brush more than I would like, mainly because it's pink and I'm not a huge fan of pink but it definitely works for this brush. It DOES look pretty luxe too. The bristles are nice and soft and blend really well. I'd say they're comparable to Sigma and my beloved Bdellium Brushes -same prices range too! They're also

  • 100% Vegan
  • Synthetic Bristles
  • Anti-Bacterial Coated Bristles

Some people think synthetic bristles means it's not good quality but that's simply not true. A WELL MADE synthetic brush blends like a dream and will LAST. MUFE brushes are extremely well made and SYNTHETIC.

This sunscreen lotion is a nice, light lotion that dries quickly and doesn't leave a white overcast. It reminds me of my Japanese sunscreen lotions actually, which I love and therefor give this a thumbs up as well.

I used this and noticed how nice and soft it kept my skin feeling after cleansing. This does not strip your skin of skin moisture, I believe it's at a good pH level but don't have any receipts for that claim yet. If you're using a cleanser that leaves your skin feeling tight and dry afterwards -STOP! Use something like this and your skin will thank you!
