August 2013 IPSY bag review

Belated post on IPSY (myglam) August bag


The products:




The bag:




And what's inside!




Features:

1) MICA beauty cosmetics shimmer powder in 17 bronze - A beautiful rose gold shimmer powder. This can be used as eye shadow or highlighter above cheek bones. I love it!


2) Pacifica alight multi-mineral bb cream - Another bb cream for us to try. It has a light texture and very blend-able. Feels like lotion. I feel it has no special properties...so far.

3) Pixi lash boost mascara - 

"Specialized, buildable formula along with oversized brush delivers extreme volume & intense colour in one sweep. Separates, lengthens, and plumps each lash for a false lash look without clumping. Smudge-proof. Water-resistant. Ophthalmologically approved. Paraben & fragrance free
Beneficial ingredients and what they do:
 Vitamin E nourishes
 Panthenol strengthens lashes
Bamboo extract fortifies & helps to retain moisture"

I would not recommend this mascara to asian lashes. It will not hold the curl and plus it is not watep-roof. It literally immediately melted unto my eye lids.


4) Michael Todd Jojoba charcoal scrub - not oil free but it claims it is suitable for all skin types. I did not experience any breakout problems with this product. It also gives you a tingling feeling on the face like its cleaning. I like it. Full product is only $18. Might get this for my next scrub.

"Unique facial scrub formulated with Jojoba Wax Beads and Activated Charcoal to effectively remove dead skin, impurities and toxins. Jojoba Wax Beads provide gentle exfoliation without leaving microlacerations on delicate skin. Highly absorbent Activated Charcoal penetrates deeply into pores to draw out impurities and toxins. Refines texture and encourages skin renewal, leaving skin smooth and refreshed.
All skin types.Gentle enough for sensitive and acne prone skin types."
5) Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in anarchy - creamy, long-lasting, flattering, hydrating, nourishing. This hot bubble gum pick color will flatter any skin tone but specially a tanned skin. I loved it at the beach! After eating the tint is still on my lips.

-Until next time-

XOXO,
The Beauty Miner
