Aila 5-Free Nail Polish in Mister Pookies
This plummy brown polish is a nice choice for Autumn. The shade is a slightly ruddier version of OPI You Don't Know Jacques. I will be wearing this on my toes before I travel this weekend.
Batiste Clean and Classic Original Dry Shampoo
Batiste is my all-time favourite dry shampoo, especially the brunette version. I'm glad to receive this deluxe-sized can as it is perfect for travel.
Juara Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask
A cruelty-free, 100% vegetarian face mask, there is enough in this sample tube for two uses. I applied it last night and my face looks fresh today though the mask stung a bit on application. Possibly because turmeric and I usually do not get along.
Skinn Luxe Waterproof Eyeliner in Navy Seal
This has a midnight blue pencil on one side and a matching smudger end. I have been wanting to try this brand for a while now. The pencil is creamy and pigmented and I like this shade. I have popped this into my travel bag for next week.
Is there a Lord & Berry mini pencil festival going on around the world that I don't know about? I got exactly the same thing - and shade - in last month's LookFantastic Box (unboxed here). Of course, such repetition can occur when you subscribe to multiple beauty boxes, but you have to admit we are seeing a surplus of mini pencils.
To top it all, this pencil has melted, as you can see. But I neither care nor want a replacement because I already have exactly the same thing lying unused. Best not to increase the demand for these things as demand = supply.
VerdictI like the nail polish, and Batiste is always welcome. And I am happy to try out face masks. But I am not happy at receiving two pencils in one box, and less happy at having received yet another Lord & Berry Mini.
I was pleased with the last few Ipsy bags (Too Faced Melted, Tarte Bronzer and so on) but this month's bag does not wow me as much. Hopefully the next few bags will contain more Fall-appropriate makeup and NO pencils (HA! A girl can always dream).
