I honestly kind of forgot about my ipsy bag this month, so I was pleasantly surprised when I checked the mail and it was in there a few weeks ago. Things have been so crazy I had not tried a lot of the products until last week.
The first product I want to talk about is the HD Powder from City Color. I had no clue what it was when I took it out of the bag. I opened it up right away and put some on my finger tips and it was so weird! It made my skin feel very silky. It even weirded out Jess 😉 (I might have shoved my hand in his face saying “Feel this! Feel this!” lol) Later that day, I dusted it on my face and liked the smooth finish it gave. Still, I had to Google it to figure it out!
This is what the City Color website says about it: “City Color HD Powder sets your foundation for a smooth, matte finish. This finely-milled powder helps blur any imperfections and fills in fine lines to make sure you are always camera-ready. The translucent shade creates a shine-free and airbrushed look that works with all skin tones!”
Here’s the thing for me- I don’t wear foundation, so I can’t tell you how it works for setting that. I didn’t really notice a difference in the look of my skin, but it felt awesome! It’s made out of milled silica, which I thought was kind of interesting.
The item I like the most from this bag and have used the most (I put it on right away when I opened the bag!) since I got it has been the Hikari lipgloss in Salsa. I love the color, but the name just makes me think of the food and it made me pause. I like the formula, even though it’s a little sticky. But, just look at it!
The last item in the bag was Batiste in Original. I wish I would have gotten the ‘Blush’ scent, described as floral and fruity because that’s more my thing. The original is fresh smelling though, so I will use it. Here’s the thing, I haven’t used it yet so I can’t really review it other than to say the sample size it great for carrying in my purse!
