- Smashbox Full Exposure mini mascara
- Crown Pointed Crease Brush
- Avance Mattifying Emulsion
- J.Cat Skinny & Long Eye Pencil
Dermelect Nail Lacquer in CommandoMy favourite product in this box. A beautiful taupe-neutral, the creme polish is DBP-, formaldehyde- and toluene-free.
Smashbox Full Exposure mini mascaraThese days, I prefer mini mascaras - less wastage - and recently invested in Sephora Favourites LashStash for the coming year. If you have not seen it already, here it is. I highly recommend this set. Good to get a new mini mascara to play with.
Crown Pointed Crease BrushI usually love Crown brushes but this one seemed to shed! There was hair in the little cellophane sleeve and on the back of my hand when I swirled it around. Besides, I recently indulged in some high-end blending brushes - see here - so this will be given away.
Avance Mattifying EmulsionThis seems to be a primer and pore refiner. It is watery, but dries matte, and the fragrance is quite strong. Will give it a try over the weekend and see if it is better than my usual silicone-y primers in keeping oil at bay.
J.Cat Skinny & Long Eye PencilThere! Another black eye pencil! I knew it was a while since I received one of those. Want to place bets on how many of these I will receive in beauty boxes next year?
Not my favourite Ipsy bag - apart from the nail polish, I was not in love with the contents. The black pencil eyeliner put a dampener on my enthusiasm, and the Crown brush is definitely shedding. This bag did not have much of a blast to it. I should have liked to see some lip makeup, or eyeshadow. I hope their Christmas bag is much better.
