Now, on to the items!
FINDING FERDINAND Lip Stick in Nob Hill Red – Retail Value $30
This is one of those lipstick cases that you push in to release the lipstick – kind of like a makeup version of a fidget spinner. (I’ve been playing with it while I write this review!)
This is a highly pigmented cool red. It glides on easily, and has a slightly sheer/satin finish. I’m not one to normally rock bold red lip, but I did really like how this wore down into almost a stain. (Swatched in lower photo.)
IT COSMETICS Your Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection Face Palette – Retail Value $42
I LOVE IT Cosmetics, so this palette alone makes the box worth the cost for me!
The palette features 4 pressed powders: a blush, a bronzer, a highlighter, and a translucent setting powder.
Out of all the pressed powders in this palette are great matches for my skin tone, but the bronzer is my favorite. It’s a warm matte bronze that feels silky going on my skin and blends beautifully – it’s my ideal bronzer shade.
I appreciate that the highlighter is subtle to give you more of a luminous look than a shimmery one. The setting powder didn’t reduce the appearance of pores for me (but that’s a hefty challenge) but it did help mattify my skin.
TARTE Dream Big Eyeshadow Palette – Retail Value $30
Two palettes from two brands I love in one box? Score!
This tarte palette has a mix of shimmers and mattes. I love that you could do a neutral eye look with the browns only in this palette, or mix in some color. And I can never be mad at a palette for smelling like chocolate!
The pigment is good throughout, and in general I found them easy to blend. Here they are swatched beneath the lipstick and the IT Cosmetics palette:
SON & PARK Beauty Filter Cream Glow – Retail Value $32
This brand is new to me and I love that this facial cream jar comes with its own little spatula:
This beauty filter cream is designed to help plump and hydrate your skin, and give your skin a pearlescent glow. The effect is subtle once it fully absorbs, but for a second when I was applying it to my face I was worried I would be super shimmery! The texture feels rich, but absorbs quickly into a matte finish – a perfect base for applying makeup. (And good to know – this is made with floral extracts and I detected a rose scent.)
TONYMOLY The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Essence – Retail Value $27
When I first saw “watery essence” in the name of this product, I assumed the product would pretty much look like water. Nope!
It’s actually more of a gel/cream hybrid:
No surprise, it’s hydrating! It’s also light weight and absorbs quickly. Ipsy refers to it as part serum/part toner. You apply it first before the rest of your skincare routine to help your skin better absorb serums and moisturizers. I’ve been using it as a new part of my skincare routine for the past week and I’m a fan – and I *think* my skin feels more hydrated than usual.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $161. I think that’s incredible for a $25 box that sends only full-size items! I discovered a few new skincare favorites and added two great palettes to my collection!
