I wasn't super thrilled with the choices this month.

I am not living for this bag, it's just not my style.


Formula 10.0.6 Thirst No More Moisturizer ($5.69) - This has hyaluronic acid in it, so it's double moisturizing! I like this pretty well and it's very inexpensive so I very well may purchase this if I ever need a moisturizer.

Youth to the People Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner (Choice) ($4.83) - I chose this, but only because the other choices were worse. I have recently been trying to incorporate AHAs in my routine, so I'm happy with this. I only use it once a week still as I'm trying to build up my tolerance to chemical exfoliants again, but I notice my skin is smoother after use.

Dito Cosmetics Eyeshadow (Charon) ($1.72) - This is super pretty and from a really fun palette. It's creamy and applies well and is perfect for either an eye highlight or a face highlight!


Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Lip Crayon (Stephanie Plum) ($18.74) - I received this same crayon in a different shade back in June 2020. I do like the formula and this shade is just barely red enough to where I'd feel comfortable wearing it in the winter months. 

SLMissGlam P30 Angled Blusher Brush (Not available for purchase/$19.50) - Ipsy says this brush would be this price if it were available separately. It's soft and does apply blush the way I like it to be applied, but it would be hard for me to spend $20 on any single brush.


Swatches L-R: Sugar Cosmetics, Dito Cosmetics.


This bag was valued at $50.48, which is a good value. I would like to see more new brands/products an less repeats, but I suppose ever seven months isn't bad for the Sugar Cosmetics repeat. This was a good mix of skincare and makeup so it matches my profile currently and I'm pleased with that.

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