My Favorite Products From Ipsy!

I’ve been receiving Ipsy products for about 7 months now. Here I will show my favorite products, one’s that I would consider buying because they are just THAT good! 👌😄

This Clinique oil makeup remover is amazing! As you can see, I finished the whole thing. 😣 Definitely a must have!

Love this mascara from Target. My eyelashes looked a lot longer and fuller after using it, and the liquid eyeliner from Ciaté is so easy to use. Best eyeliner for a cat eye look!

The Honey Silk facial Serum from Hey Honey is my favorite moisturizer at the moment. It’s so silky smooth! 

The Be fine Exfoliating cleanser is probably the best facial scrub I’ve ever used. Smells so good and leaves skin very soft!

I use the Hanalei Lip treatment everyday! It helps keep my lips moisturized for a long period of time. I don’t have to keep applying more!

The Bye Bye Under Eye concealer is AMAZING! Hides my dark circles and blemishes very well. It’s already empty because I use it all the time when I go out!

I love trying new lipsticks from different companies and this Tarter Lip Paint is one of my favs! Color is called ‘Delish’. It is quick drying and long lasting! Yayyy!

Don’t even get me started with this product! Lol I haven’t polished my nails with any other nail polish since I received this Trust Fund Beauty nail color in ‘Champagne Socialite’! I’m obsessed! ❤

And there ya go!! Thank you for reading!! 😄👍

What I Got In My Ipsy Bag This Month!

I think this month’s Ipsy bag is the cutest bag so far! I love that it is in the shape of a ticket, I also love the color and material. 

So here’s what I got in my bag!

Super cute brush by Lisa Frank:

This brush is really pretty! It’s rainbow, has butterflies, stars and unicorns on the handle! 🦄🦄🦄 XOXO 💙💚💛💜💖❤

A face cleanser from H20+ Beauty:

Tony Moly Liptone Lip Care Stick:

I actually really love this product. It is very moisturizing. My lips are always dry so I’m happy I got this in my bag. I looked for it online and it runs for $10.00! Ipsy is only $10.00 a month so that’s awesome! 😆👍

The Base by Lara Bingley LB Cream with SPF 15:

I will definitely use this for when I go out during the day and don’t want to wear much makeup.

Ciaté London Bamboo Bronzer:

I’m super pale so I might need a couple more of these! 😂 Actually might just use this product to contour.

Experimenting With Activated Charcoal Powder: Peel Off Mask and Skin Lightening

I’ve seen so many post’s about people using black charcoal peel off masks and the Biore Pore Strips. I’ve tried the Biore strips and they work great! It pulled out so many blackheads! But, it costs $6 and I don’t think it’s worth buying.

I decided to buy some Activated Charcoal powder so I can make my own mask. One for the face (peel off mask) and one for lightening my underarms.
I bought the activated charcoal powder from eBay for $10 and $5 shipping. I mixed it with a clear cucumber peel off mask I bought from Walgreens for about $4. The charcoal powder is so fine and a little bit goes a long way, so I know it will last a long time. It is definitely worth buying!

Results:


Now for the lightening, I got the idea from @farahdhukai on instagram. All you have to do is mix some charcoal powder with some honey and then use a thick makeup brush to cover your underarm or any dark area on your body.

Here is her instagram video:

🙋🏾HOW TO LIGHTEN DARK UNDERARMS!🌔 🌚It happens. Here’s how to prevent/treat it and get fresh glowing pits!🌝 🔑MAJOR KEY! STOP SHAVING! esp if u are brown! brown skin hyper-pigments easily when it is damaged and shaving irritates/damages skin! WAX/THREAD/LASER instead! 🕊Use this detox and bleaching/brightening underarm mask to lighten up any dark pigmentation ALL YOU NEED: ✅HONEY – 1TBS (measurements dont really matter- you can make more or less of this if you want. Store extras in the fridge -make sure no one eats it) ✅ACTIVATED CHARCOAL – I used the powder of 3 pills ^^^MIX TOGETHER^^^ 🎣APPLY TO CLEAN AND DRY UNDERARM ⏳LEAVE ON FOR 20 MINS SO IT CAN WORK ITS MAGIC- u can relax your arms. Don't need to keep them up like a 🐒 🚿WIPE OFF WITH WARM WASHCLOTH ORRRR IN THE SHOWER 👌🏾DO THIS AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN TO GET THE BEST RESULTS! 😱WHY THIS WORKS!!😱 🤓Honey is a natural bleaching agent. It releases hydrogen peroxide (bleach) which will lighten the darkness 🤓Honey is also a great anti-bacterial and moisturizer (dry skin can give the illusion of uneven skin so itll help moisturize it) 🤓Activated Charcoal is a detox – so it cleans/pulls out all the impurities/toxins and nasties from the underarm leaving you smelling FRESH – if natural deodorants dont work for you, try this mask and THEN switch to a natural deodorant and youll be so fresh and so clean SHARING IS CARING + GIVE THIS VIDEO A LIKE!
