Ricky's NYC Rickycare Original 3D Blender ($10.00) - This is basically a knockoff of the BeautyBlender (something I've been wanting to try for a while). Since I can't compare it to the BeautyBlender, I can just tell you how I feel about this one. It feels nice and applies decently without sucking up tons of product. It did turn a bit purple from being inside my Ipsy bag, so that's slightly concerning.

Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer ($10.00) - I love Elizabeth Mott products, so this was definitely something great to try out. I used it with an eye shadow that was sitting on my desk and it definitely made the shadow pop! This primer is a bit thicker than other primers I use, but I'm fine with that if it works this well.


BeFine Exfoliating Cleanser ($6.00) - I'm always wary of products that don't list ingredients on their packaging, so I checked their website, which also doesn't list ingredients. It's a very abrasive and caused a ton of redness while leaving tons of weird pieces in my sink. I definitely will not be using this again because there are many more cleansers that aren't as painful and are more natural.

Sephora Formula X Polish (Revved Up) ($3.41) - Revved Up is a Rose Gold Metallic per the description on Sephora. As you can see, mine doesn't lean very much on the rose side of rose gold. I do love the finish of this, though, so make sure to check out my Instagram to see what I do with this!

Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick (Nudie Red) ($9.99) - Oh my, I absolutely love this shade of red. It's just red enough that I feel fancy but it's pink enough to make me comfortable. It feels nice on and it doesn't come off super easily. I'm definitely going to check out the other colors I can find, since this line is Target exclusive! 



This bag was valued at $39.40, which is awesome for a $10 bag! I definitely loved most of the products, and I found a new primer to use. My favorite item is the lip stick, though, because I'm falling more and more in love with bold lips! Overall, this bag had the value and had I got a few more great products to play with!
As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
