ipsy January 2014 Glam Bag
Hey guys! It’s been a while! I’ve been trying to finalize my wedding venue and catering these past few days. We almost were about to sign with one venue when another venue that hasn’t gotten back to me finally did and it was my preferred venue when I take into consideration my out-of-town guests. They’re sending over the contract today, so I’m hoping this is it! There’s nothing much happening that’s new in terms of beauty with me recently with the exception of some of Milani 2014 landing at my doorstep. Reviews on those will be coming in soon! For now, read on for my take on the ipsy January 2014 Glam Bag.
The first glam bag of the year! They have hit it out of the park with their recent bags that for once I’m glad I don’t like this one as much (just the bag itself and not the contents)! I know, I know….but if I liked the actual bag a lot every single time, I’d end up with 12 from my annual subscription! Lord knows I don’t need more bags! So I’ll be gladly passing this cute cosmetic bag on to someone else. The products that I got for this month definitely got me excited with the exception of one. The product I was most excited about is the Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion. This is a new-to-me brand and a product that is more on skincare than makeup. It got mixed reviews, so we’ll see when I do try it. The one I don’t care about the most is MicaBeauty 24 Hour Tinted Lip Balm. It’s nothing against the brand or product, it’s just that I have a million lip glosses and balms already that I just don’t need another one. I’m going to set this aside for a giveaway or an extra in someone’s gift. The one that appealed to me the most packaging-wise is willa On The Go Face Towelettes. The packaging is so cute and whimsical. It caught my eye immediately. It’s definitely something I could use, but I’m saving it up for travel. It’s convenient and easy to use. Another item that I’m meh about is the Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow. I have lots of eye shadow products that I don’t need another one of these. Since I use lip products more, I keep more of those. I am pickier when it comes to eye color then. So this will be the other item I’ll pass on to someone else. The last item is one that I have used several times now and am loving it! Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner works wonders for my hair. My issue right now is that it gets really tangly with my daily activities. It smells good, keeps the tangles at bay and leaves my hair soft to the touch. A definite winner for me.
Overall, not bad but I’m definitely hoping for a bag with items I can all use next month!
