A whole palette and a brush in this box and I'm still irritated? Find out more below.

Theme card.

It Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush #704 ($48.00) - This brush is fine, but I would never spend nearly $50 for it. It does a fine job blending out foundation but nothing worth paying this much. For $50, it should apply makeup itself.

Benefit Cosmetics High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter ($22.00) - This is a stunning browbone highlight but that's not really my thing. I did try this as a cheek highlight but it was just too difficult to apply so I passed it along.

Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes ($55.00) - These under eyes need all the help they can get, so this was an instant keep. I  haven't consistently used it (I've been struggling a bit with doing a good skincare routine) but when I do, I'll update this review!

Paris Hilton Skincare ProD.N.A. Dual-Action Cleansing Gel ($29.00) - I was so pissed to see this in this expensive of a box. I have found multitudes of Paris Hilton Skincare at TJ Maxx, a bad look for Ipsy.

Laura Sanchez Moods Palette ($25.00) - As I mentioned on the other Ipsy post, I didn't keep this palette. It's just a bit bulkier than I prefer and I can find these shadows in other palettes that aren't quite so big.

Swatches L-R: Benefit Cosmetics, Laura Sanchez.

This box's value was $179.00, which is really good for the box price. I was a bit disappointed in the products, however, so this wasn't my favorite box.

As always, let me know what you thought of this month's box in the comments below!
