Makeup by One Direction Little Black Dress Volumizing Mascara Review

Makeup by One Direction's Little Black Dress Mascara is a "volumizing mascara in perfect black." This mascara isn't currently available for individual purchase, but it is part of almost all Makeup by One Direction kits and sets. I'll update if and when this mascara because available on it's own. Each tube of Little Black Dress Mascara contains 6.5ml (.22 fl oz). Makeup by One Direction does not test on animals.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer Review+Swatches (Ivory)

Rimmel London's Wake Me Up Concealer has an "instant anti-fatigue effect with peptides and vitamin moisturising complex. Visibly reawakens and illuminates under the eyes. Completely conceals spots and other blemishes." This concealer is available in five shades (only three in Australia, where I picked mine up in the lightest shade, Ivory). The Wake Me Up Concealer contains 7ml (.23 fl oz) and sells for $5 USD ($14.95 AUD). Rimmel is not cruelty free. The Wake Me Up Concealer is made in England.

Maybelline Matte Maker Mattifying Powder - Review+Swatches (Classic Ivory 10)

 Maybelline says "meet our first powder with millions of micro sponges. Infused with lightweight, blotting spheres to dissolve oil and instantly set. Now you can get all day matte perfection with Matte Maker." This new powder seems to be exclusive to Australia and the UK, but I wouldn't be surprised if it finds it's way to America sooner or later. Maybelline's Matte Maker Powder is available in three shades, I have the lightest, Classic Ivory. This pressed powder is an amazing value, you get a whopping 16 grams of product for just $12 AUD. Maybelline is not cruelty free. This powder was made in Italy.

New IpsyPoints Rewards - Benefit and J.Cat Beauty *sold out*



Benefit's Fakeup is a hydrating under eye concealer. The texture of this concealer is incredible, and it provides nice coverage, but I found it to be a little too emollient, causing it to crease on me. I wouldn't recommend this sample because of how incredibly tiny it is. It's a fraction of of the full size, so you'll get very little use, and the value is quite poor, even for a 500 point perk. My Fakeup review is linked above. 
 Benefit PosieBalm - Sample - $1.80  *Sold Out*

I am crazy about Benefit's BeneBalms! They're like a more luxe version of Maybelline's Baby Lips. They're so moisturizing, and they add just a slight tint of sheer color. Once again, I recommend against picking up this little sample. It's just a tenth of the size of a full size PosieBalm, so you'll fly right through it. My PosieBalm review is linked above. 
J.Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint - Full Size - $4.99 *Sold Out*

The best use of your IpsyPoints is the J.Cat Wonder Lip Paint. Two shades are being offered - Mad Splatter and Red Potion. These lip colors are touted as dupes to the ever popular OCC Lip Tars, and from my brief experience with both products, they definitely are similar. Red Potion is a gorgeous, richly pigmented burgundy shade that's worth snapping up!
