- Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette
I was so excited to get this lipstick shade because it’s very similar to one of my everyday colors that I currently wear (MAC – Whirl). It’s a true matte lipstick and I love the smooth application. In the picture above, I put 2 coats on my hand. I wear the MAC Prep + Prime Lip under all my lipsticks and it definitely helps with hydration, smoothening the lines and keeping the color on longer.
This brush is not only super cute (love the white tips) but it’s definitely quality too! It’s a multipurpose brush that I mostly use for nose conturing and blending my eyeshadow. Love it! I also found out that this brand has brushes for Art AND Beauty… now that’s awesome! No wonder their make-up brush is legit.
This is one of those masks that give you an immediate result, which is smoother skin. I loved how my face felt after I washed this off… it felt much softer. When it comes to face masks, I need to feel immediate results so I actually know it was worth the time I left it on my face haha.
When I first saw this in my bag, I assumed it was eyeshadow so I was surprised to find out it was actually a bronzer and highlighter… oops! Any way, when it comes to bronzers, I typically like ones without a shimmer so I actually just used the highlighter on this duo. The light shimmer is really nice outdoors. The palette I use for contouring is the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette.
Yay for an eyeshadow palette! These colors are really pretty although the 3 colors I would use the most are the lightest one on the left and the 2 shades of brown on the right. The product is pigmented and on the shimmery side which I love for the warmer weather. What’s awesome about this brand too is that it’s 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free!
Overall, I was pretty satisfied with this month’s bag. The quality of the products are good and since they’re similar to products I already use, I would probably be using them up. I’m not a fan of the see-through ice cream make-up bag though but I know Scarlett will be and she can use it for her little trinkets. Haha. Any way, Ipsy has been stepping up their game lately and I get more and more excited to see what I’ll get each month. If you’re considering to try it out, don’t hesitate! It’s worth more than the $10/month… click here 🙂
