I’ve broken free of the black eyeliner and concealer hell!
I should have, because I complained to a few people and took black eyeliner and concealer off my ipsy quiz.
What’s in my bag
LUXIE ROSE GOLD MEDIUM ANGLED SHADING EYE BRUSH 207 by Luxie Beauty
It’s inexplicably capslocked on the website, that is not me yelling at you. I also don’t wear eyeshadow. There is not an eyeshadow or primer on this earth that will stay on my eyelids.
Purchase or pass: I’ve had it for an hour and I’ve already given it away.
Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey by Pixi by Petra
I swatched it for you! Both colors. Promise.
It’s fucking highlighter.
Purchase or pass: I don’t understand how you make a blush that does not show up on my ghost skin.
PHOTO FINISH RADIANCE PRIMER by Smashbox Cosmetics
Also inexplicably capslocked because RADIANCE okay. Not that you can tell, but it is also swatched in that picture of my wrist. Have you ever wanted to use highlighter as primer? Because you can. Or you could pay $30 for the full version of this and pretend you’re wearing primer.
Purchase or pass: I don’t understand.
Beauty Planner Mask – Mugwort, Astringent + Pore Care and Beauty Planner Mask – Lily, Whitening + Brightening by Manefit
Two masks! I love masks! I would not have picked these specific masks, but ipsy has beaten me down so much the past three months that I am THRILLED. Stay tuned for this month’s “Weird Stuff on my Face” because I don’t know what mugwort is and a whitening mask might actually erase me.
Purchase or pass: Astringents aren’t typically great for your skin and the colorism of whitening products bothers me, so I’m going to pass. Maybe they’re great, though! Still excited to try them.
EDIT: These were the least relaxing masks I’ve ever used.
Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Deception by Adesse New York
It’s so watery and nowhere near opaque. What did I do to hurt you, ipsy? I painted one coat on half of my toenails and gave up.
Purchase or pass: *weeps*
Do you know what’s not in my bag? This red matte lipstick. What beasts must I slay to have ipsy enable my red matte lipstick fixation?
I could email and complain and have them send me the lipstick, but I honestly can’t handle the disappointment.
I’ve preemptively removed highlighter from my preferences.
There’s a referral code if you love everything that I hate.
