Best Ipsy Products of 2014 Edition

Recommended Posts

This isn't necessarily all from 2014 but I thought I would share the stand-out products I've received from Ipsy in general:

- Cailyn Gel Liner (love the brush!!).. very nice quality hasn't dried on me and it's over a year old.

- Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass lip/cheek stain.. refreshing to see this concept that wasn't the oh-so-hyped Benetint.

- Yaby Natural Finish Foundation.. don't get me wrong this is not my favorite foundation by any means but I think they were being considerate in their choice because I can see this working for a lot of skin types (I'm oily but the finish can def be flattering on dry skin).

- Dr. Brandt face scrub.. I really enjoyed this; I love scrubs and exfoliants plus it smelled like lemons!

- Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks/Velvet liners.. I like how Ipsy always keeps up with new UD releases.

Now seems like a good time to go back and look at my bags for the year :)

Feb : Skyn Iceland mud mask

 

March : Chella blue eyeliner, still use this quite frequently

 

April : City Color White Gold shadow/highlight mousse.  Wasn't expecting much, but this stuff is awesome.

 

May : Hey Honey peel-off mask

I haven't seen anyone mention this yet, but I loved the LeeAnni Eco moisturizer from September. I only started using my sample this month (I'm really backlogged with samples) and it makes my skin so soft! I don't want to put on makeup anymore!

October was my first bag, and even though I actually really liked everything in it, I'm crazy about the Noyah lipstick and the Indie Lee brightening cleanser, but only when used as a mask.  It was okay for me as a cleanser, but as a mask, it's incredible!  I probably won't be purchasing the Indie Lee because but I am almost certainly purchasing a full sized lipstick before the month is out.

 

In November, my favorite thing was definitely the Starlooks gem eye pencil in Ultra Olive.

Since I've had my bag for a few days now I figured I'd finish out the year.

 

October - H2O hydrating treatment. I bought a full size.

November - BaB primer/eyeshadow. Yeh, it creases by the end of the day but it looks very pretty for most of the day.

December - Tarte mascara. Love.

I almost gave up on the BaB eyebase, but I tried it one more time with a brush instead of my finger, and I loved it!  I packed it on pretty heavily and then layered it with a burgundy brown shadow, and it was so pretty!  I didn't experience nearly as much creasing this way either.

I'll finish out the year too.

October: Ayers body butter, loved the smell and the teal bag was my favorite yet

 

November: Cake hand cream, LM powder and fan brush, I use it to set my under eye concealer every day. I also redeemed for the Chella Ivory Lace pencil, which is amazing!

 

December: Tarte mascara

 

Ipsy has been good to me this year:)

This year with Ipsy wasn't as good as 2013.

I had very few products I actually liked. Some months I didn't even use anything.

From January I liked the E. Mott eye pencil. I really liked the color. After a few months tho it dried out and I couldn't use it anymore.

March- everything. I got the Pacifica body butter, BAB bora bora & missha bb. I gave the BM lipstick to my mom and she loved it.

July- benefit mascara. It's been one of my faves for a while, so I always keep samples in my bag.

September- crown brush. I love it!

October- Starlooks lip gloss. Surprisingly because I don't like gloss.

Nov- EM eyeliner, tho I haven't worn it out.

I've only ever fully used the brushes from ipsy. Everything else has been tossed or gifted. But I always loved when they sent a brush!

    • While  the summers are great for outdoor activities, it does take toll on your skin. The burning sun, humidity and pollution not only wipes off your natural glow but also makes your skin rough and unclear. Therefore, it's important to care for your skin to keep it glowing. Here are some skincare tips to follow this summer season: Exfoliate: It's important to exfoliate to your skin to remove the dead skin cells, grim and dirt, especially in the summers. Do this at lease 2-3 a times a week to get good skin.     Make Sunscreen Your BFF: They say, "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer". The same applies to Sunscreen - Make it your BFF even if you don't like it. Keep in mind, you cannot have good skin if you don't use sunscreen, especially in the summers. So, invest in a good one and ensure application every 2-3 hours.   Drink Lots of Water: This is one of the most important skincare tips to follow during summers. A minimum of 2.5 or 3 liters of water is what you will need to stay hydrated and fresh, which in turn, will also benefit in your skin.   Eat Healthy: It's advisable to eat healthy during summers. Add a lot fruits and green vegetables  to your diet. Also, include fresh juices that will keep your hydrated all day long. So, now you know these skincare tips, ensure you put them to use and reap its benefits. 
    • I have a question for make up artists. I am a makeup artist working a gig with a photographer for a shoot that’s going to be doing 20 min headshots all day long. I think we have 10 people signed up for one day so far starting at 11am. I’m currently negotiating my fee and am asking $50 a person/ headshot for the day.  I don’t want to underrate myself ( I usually charge a flat fee for one 2-3 hour headshot session) , but I feel this fee is fair given it’s my makeup supplies, time and artistry, and I will be there all day.   Any thoughts or feedback about this and if you’ve had similar jobs that designated a specific fee given the high volume of faces I’ll be doing for this shoot.
    • I want to share with you all a product that has given me incredible results. It is the LED Light mask, each color helps to improve some aspect of the skin, led light therapy is used in spas, saloons... the fact is that I bought it at biomasktherapy.com I got it, I took a picture before using it and after two weeks I noticed some incredible changes, it has improved the acne, spots, wrinkles, it has left the skin clearer and especially I had a big change around my eyes area, is the change that has surprised me most, love it. I use the mask everyday for 30 minutes. I am sharing the photo of before/after two weeks results of use :) What's your experience with LED light therapy? 
    • Well, choosing a right hair straighter is very important. If you go for the choice of a wrong one it may result in damaging your hair in long ru. If asked from me I prefer to use Phillips straightener. Its a good and reputed brand . Also, the quality of product is really good.  Also, you must care about your hair before applying rod or an iron to it. For that you need to take help of hair protecting serums to use before ironing hair. That will prevent your hair from damage.
    • Bollywood’s superstar, Sonam Kapoor is an International fashion icon, adored for her style. Be it the red carpet, airport looks, public appearances, etc. she always dressed on point, giving us major fashion goals. Below are some styling tips given by the fashionista herself. 1.      Add A Pop of Colour: Do you own a lot of monochromes and greys? If yes, it’s time to add some bright colours to your wardrobe. Include some reds, blues, yellows and pinks and own it like a boss!   2.      Invest in Statement Pieces: Sonam Kapoor firmly believes in investing in statement pieces such as large necklaces, sequined purses, brooches or even cocktail rings. Most of these come within the budget and look absolutely stunning.   3.      Indian is NOT Boring: If you prefer donning Indian clothes, don’t think it’s boring. You could always pair your sarees or salwar suits with attractive accessories such as bling jhumkas or a statement clutch.   4.      Experiment with Styles: Never stop experimenting. A change in your looks every now and then is a good thing. A new hairstyle, a different saree drape, etc. are some styles you should try out.   5.      Let Your Eyes Do the Talking: Sonam Kapoor loves eye make-up. Whether it’s just a kajal with a lip gloss or shimmering eye shadow or even some dramatic eye make-up, she neve shies away from experimenting with her looks that steal the show.
