June 2020 Ipsy Bag – Make Waves
Ooooh, now this is a nice ipsy bag.
For this month’s product choice, I decided to go out of character and pick Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Lip Crayon in “Scarlett O’Hara”. I admit that I was drawn to the name, not because I like Gone with Wind – I don’t care for it – but because my son’s name would’ve been Scarlett Uhura if he was a girl. Not only is is a pretty, neutral toned red…but it has staying power! I was shocked that it last all day and didn’t transfer much. It was a really good pick.
Also in this month’s bag: Color Club “Catwalk” (I love trampy red nail polish); Malin+Goetz Grapefruit Cleanser (I got this in a Birchbox 5 years ago – I love the scent); Eddie Funkhouser Domed Blending Brush (who is Eddie Funkhouser?); and Pureheals Ginseng Berry 80 Overnight Mask (it’s not really a mask, just a light moisturizer).
I subscribe to the basic ipsy bag for $12/month. If you’d like to try Ipsy – click here. I’ll earn 250 points if you sign up through my referral link. I am starting to get tempted to subscribe to the yearly plan…
September Birchbox – Better Together
View this post on Instagram
“Better Together” is Birchbox’s September theme – and the box is chock full of extras to go with my main samples.
Inside my box: (MALIN + GOETZ) Grapefruit Face Cleanser, with a bonus foil pack of Vitamin E Face Moisturizer (both are going to Vegas with me later this week); Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo, with a bonus foil pack of LOVE Conditioner (I LOVED Davines Minu in my July box, so this was my sample choice this month); English Laundry Eau de Parfum Signature for Her (In deed, it smells English…like the Queen Mum herself); Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive (I prefer clay masks to peel off, but I’ll give it a spin); and POP Beauty POP Portfolio Shadow Trio in “Sugar Plum” (I am suspicious of silver and purple eye shadow).

January Ipsy Bag – Fresh Start
This is it – the last of my subscriptions for the month.
This might be the most cohesive Ipsy Bag that I’ve ever received – I could conceivably use all of these products together and not look like a clown! January’s theme is “Fresh Start” and includes Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush (I will never have to buy brushes again); Hikari Cosmetics Mechanical Eye Liner in “Storm”; (MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm (I’m wearing it now – I leaned over to give my husband a smooch and he didn’t gag, so that’s a good sign); Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow in “Ethereal”; and Velvet 59 Velvet Rose Lipgloss in “Noisette”.
I’ll be trying all these out tomorrow…
