March 2022 Ipsy Bag – Power Moves

“Power Moves”. Hmmm…that makes me think of a character’s special combo in Soul Caliber or Mortal Kombat. Makes me want to blind someone with razor sharp mascara…

Anyway…My product choice this month was Eleman Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Madrid”. I cannot sugarcoat it – the color looks like baby poop. Not newborn baby poop (greenish black) or breastfeed baby poop (stone ground mustard)…no, this is a baby already starting soft foods. Yeah, one of those NASTY poops. I really liked it and it had great staying power!

Also in this month’s bag: Araceli Beauty Tequila Highlighter in “Reposado” (are highlighters over yet? I’m SICK of them); First Aid Beauty Hydrating Eye Cream with Hyaluronic Acid (I haven’t tried it yet, but soon); Shaina B Miami B. Sultry Pressed Pigment Duo in “Vino & Bae Harbor” (this is my favorite item in the bag – not just because of the flamingos embossed in the pigment…the shimmery “Bae Harbor” is a perfect taupe gold shimmer); and Firma Beauty 202 Angled Blender Brush (I admit, I took this out of the package and used it with the pigment right away).

This month’s makeup bag is a little lame. It will probably end up full of Barbie shoes or something.

July 2020 Ipsy Bag – Take a Break

Take a break and get away…Run away with us for the summer…

I know, I know – I STILL have Hamilton on the brain. This month’s ipsy bag includes products for a beauty staycation. Jokes on ipsy – we’re ALL on a staycation right now. Summer is CANCELED.

This month’s product choice was Mudmasky Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask. I will be trying it before my shower tomorrow…

Also in this month’s totally 80s “Escape” bag: Firma Beauty 201 Tall Blender Brush (Okay, I am gonna start painting shit with all these brushes); TheBalm Cosmetics Will Power Blush in “Perseverance”; BASD Body Lotion in “Seductive Sandalwood” (I do not care for sandalwood, so I gave it to my daughter); and Space Case Cosmetics Eye Shadow in “Karma is a Beach”.

A good assortment of products this month!

April 2018 Ipsy Bag – Social Butterfly

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on

LOOK at this month’s ipsy bag – rose gold butterflies! I’m dead.

The Pretty Woman Nail Polish in “Girl Boss” was the first product that caught my eye – it’s a dusty rose that matches the bag. Also in this month’s bag: Firma Beauty Angled Blender Brush; Ciate London Starstruck Double-Ended Stamp Liquid Liner (well, if I want to look like Kat Von D); Bubble T Cosmetics Lemongrass & Green Tea Stimulating Hand Cream; and Hempz Herbal Lip Balm (tee hee – hemp).

A solid bag, if a bit on the hippy side.

August Ipsy Bag – Good Vibes Only

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on

Boo! No more gold mailer!

Yeah, I’m a bit late with my ipsy post. I feel like the ipsy mailer is most likely to get buried in the mail pail – happens every month! For the first time, I’m not excited about ANY of the products in my bag this month. The bag itself is super cute – it’s a unique shape and has a very nice lining. There were also bags that say “Wild & Free” and “Good Vibes Only” – “Peace Love Lipstick” is obviously the best one.

The products I’m not so thrilled about: JUARA Skincare Rice Facial Cleanser (okay, maybe I am a little bit interested in this one); Promise Organic Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion (this brand is new to me); Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour Brush (aren’t we done with contouring?); Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara; and Steve Laurant Precision Tip Liner in “Black” (another new-to-me brand).

It’s not a horrible bag – a good variety of products – but just nothing exciting.
