So bright!


I liked this bag but I didn't keep it. Sometimes I wish they wouldn't send bags as it's just creating more waste.


Theme card.


Pixi by Petra Fresh Face Blush (Beach Rose) ($8.00) - This is a really pretty almost brown blush that looks pretty good on my face. It also would work in a pinch for a transition shade!

Purlisse Beauty Matcha Green Tea + Lemon Detoxifying Charcoal Mask ($9.72) - This is a fine mask for my t-zone so I did keep this. It has a decent smell and I do like masks, so this was fine!

Tarte Sea Jelly Glaze Anytime Mask (Strawberry Jelly) (Choice) ($4.20) - The choices weren't that great this month so I chose a lip mask. This is a nice mask and I like the scent (flavor?), but it's not going to replace my Laneige one!


TheBalm Cosmetics Autobalm Pic Perf (St. Charles Ave) ($4.75) - This is another great transition shade and man, it looks very similar to the above blush. Just look at the swatches below.

F.A.R.A.H. Brushes Large Blender Brush 25EL ($10.00) - I do like this brush, which is pretty typical for the brand. Like always, I don't think it's worth the cost but I'm not mad to have received it.


Swatches L-R: Pixi by Petra, TheBalm Cosmetics.


This bag is valued at $36.67, which seems a little low for Ipsy recently. The bag itself was fine and I'm not mad but I would like to see some variety in brands.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments below!
