ipsy summers are ultra chill… or in the case of July’s bag, it’s just Over Easy.
Over Easy is the them for July and the bag features Gudetama, and over easy egg. Gudetama was created by Sanrio, the same brains behind Hello Kitty, Keroppi and other cute characters. Gudetama looks a little sad, though. I’m don’t know why. He really shouldn’t be! I love Sanrio characters and have loved them since I was a pre-teen and there were still Sanrio stores around here. I’ll give this sad egg a chance. 🙂
But right now, let’s see what was in the bag!
The first item I received was the treStiQue Mini Concealer Crayon in Bisque (price and size of product is unknown). Now how handy and convenient is this? A concealer pencil that’s super portable! This concealer has a creamy texture that provides medium to full coverage. It is coconut-infused making it hydrating for those who have dry undereyes. I’m glad I received this. 🙂
Next, we have the Seraphine Botanicals Ginger + Gold Peach & Gold Frosting Blush ($14.00 USD, 3 g). This is so so so my colour! So it’s safe to say that I’m happy about it! This is a nice smooth blush with ginger, lychee, mangosteen and chamomile extracts. Because of these ingredients, you can smell it in the pan but not when you apply it. I also love that it’s mineral oil, paraben and phthalates free. It’s also hypo-allergenic so my sensitive skin is thankful! Love this blush!
I also received the Modicum Essential Serum ($12.50 USD, 5 ml). I have always been uncertain about oils on my skin. More often than not, I end up breaking out a bit. The tarte one is probably the only exception. This serum is packed chock full of oils and it’s plant based so it’s said to be great for problematic skin. It also has anti-aging benefits. They also say that it has healing properties for chronic skin problems like eczema and psoriasis. It does have a strong scent, though, and I’m not a fan so that, in addition to it being an “uncertain oil”, I think I will take a pass.
This next one is fun – the tarte cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel ($1.50 CAD, 7.5 ml) is an excellent cleanser. How do I know this? Because I have already used it before! It is super great for cleansing makeup and it’s really gentle, too. And if you don’t like strong scents, this is great because it’s super subtle. I am going to save this small travel sized bottle for my next vacation. It’s great for travel. 🙂
Last item! And it’s quite intriguing. It is the Bellapierre Cosmetics Banana Setting Powder ($35.00 USD, 4 g)! I gotta admit… I’ve always been curious about banana powders for colour correction and this is the first time I’ve gotten my hands on one so I’m super excited about it! Also, this is a full sized product so that’s pretty great! I haven’t tried it yet because I’ve been trying to get through my current concealer in my Shop My Stash basket but I’m going to have to try it soon. I will try it to set my makeup under my eyes maybe. I hope it works well!
That’s it for July’s bag. The overall value for this month is $78.94 CAD at the very least… I’m not sure what the value of the treStiQue concealer is… but that’s still pretty good! Considering I like every item except the serum, the bag is worth it this month.
I’m still waiting for my August ipsy to come in the mail so it will be a little while yet before that unboxing but I hope to get it up sooner than later!
