I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year! I recently activated my Ipsy subscription again. Ipsy is a subscription service that sends you five deluxe or full sized beauty samples. It's $10 a month. You can sign up using my link here if you'd like.
This was not soft at all! I ran it under water hoping it would soften up, but nope! It blended out my foundation okay, but I'd prefer the original beauty blender over this. It also had a strange chemical smell.
Benefit Cosmetics The Porefessional
This is a face primer I highly recommend! It helps erase the look of any pores I may have. It goes on silky and creates the perfect base for my foundation to glide over. This primer also helps my foundation or BB cream last longer.
Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer
You can wear this alone, or mix this into your favorite foundation/moisturizer. The pump dispensed a bit too much product for my liking. It doesn't feel thick on the skin. It looks like I have a natural glow from within. I do have oily skin, so this product did highlight that as the day wore on. I still enjoy this product though.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum
This was a generous sample. It's supposed to smooth, brighten, and exfoliate the skin. It has 4% glycolic acid. My skin does look a tad brighter, but the serum has a strong citrus scent. It left my skin with a sticky feeling as well.
Ciate London Matte Liquid Velvet Lipstick
I honestly thought I was going to hate this shade on me, but I ended up loving it! The liquid lipstick was comfortable and long wearing. I needed just one swipe of this! I got precise application thanks to the lip applicator. It also dries quickly. I received this in the shade "Pin Up", which is a berry shade.
