Real talk, have you ever found out that someone is a church-goer and it made you think less of them? Not because I am anti-church, or anti-faith or anything but because the person is just such an asshole that you cannot fathom how they could possibly go and sit in church every Sunday and be the way that they are!? I was made privy to this information about someone recently and I wanted to just stop everything and ask them, So – you just choose to be a condescending, elitist, snotty prig and then you go to church? What church do you go to?! The Church of Latter Day Assholes?! I got so irrationally annoyed over this but seriously – going to church is the easy part, that’s a participation grade, it’s what you do outside of church that counts. I just cannot stand it when people go to church to perpetuate an image and I just think they need to be called out on it. Now every time that I see this person I just get so irritated and I am terrible at controlling my facial expressions so I can only imagine that they are definitely picking up on my total and utter disdain. I just want to slap their coffee out of their hands, I don’t think I have ever seen them with coffee but you get the idea.
Let’s get to the real point of this post, shall we? My November Ipsy arrived and what a bust! To start, I received the blue bag and I wanted the yellow one – first world problems and I do like the overall structure and textures of the bag so I’ll get over it. I think that the theme this month was All You and per usual, the products have nothing to do with anything.
Amazonian Clay Blush in Some Pink Shade – I do not like this blush formula, I might be the only person who doesn’t but I stand by that opinion. It is a very stiff formula and I just don’t get the pigment and colour pay off that I want from a blush. This formula also doesn’t last on me, I hate it when I get home and I look pale. This will be a gift-away!
ColourPop Ultra-Satin Lip in Calypso – Also not a fan of the satin formula from ColourPop, It is very dry for a satin product, I would rather just go whole hog and wear a matte lippie. This colour is also too brown for my skin tone, this will be another gift-away and it’s a full-size product so that’s a win.
Crown Small Chisel Brush – I think this would make a really nice blusher brush, it’s just a plain ol’ brush as far as design but the bristles are really soft.
Naked Cosmetics Pigment in Mother Nature – Ipsy keeps trying to make me like this brand but I just can’t! This is at least the 3rd powder/pigment pot that I have received from this brand. They just don’t have a lot of pigment or shine and are messy to work with. This one does look like one of my favourite pans of shadow from the Manny MUA x Makeup Geek palette and I will try it out to see if gives the same green with red reflect effect.
SKYN Iceland Berry Lip Fix – I have tried a couple of products from this brand that I have really enjoyed. I hate berry lip stuff though, This product claims to be vegan, all-natural and formulated with red algae. Again, with the algae.
Overall, kinda’ disappointed but as I always say, it’s only 10 bucks. I hope they do something festive for the December bag – not too festive, like gold or something shimmery. That isn’t too much to ask…?
Thanks for stopping by <3
