I know, I know…it’s October already! But I already took the pictures a while back and rather have them go to waste I’ll just make a quick post about it. Here’s what I got in my ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag.
The bag itself is pretty different from what I’ve come to expect from ipsy for years. I like how it’s edgy. First item that caught my eye is the NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop. I love trying out new facial serums. This is on my next to try as soon as I free up a spot for it in my facial care regimen. Next is Ciaté London Wonderwand Mascara. The shade I got this in is called Black Magic. I think this is the only shade this particular product item comes in for now though. Then we have the Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer. I don’t use primer much but I do testing with it to compare how it fares with other primers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’s just a “thing” of mine. Next we have the The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream. I’m finishing up something from Philosophy right now and I’ll make sure this is next or the one after the next face cream I use. Last up is Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Lip Gloss. The shade I got this in is Nude Beach. I got too many lip stuff open so I’ll add this to my gifting pile. It’s a nice shimmery shade with a gold duochrome flash.
Overall, pretty good. There’s a lot of stuff I will be using in this month’s bag.
Better late than never! Here’s my take on the ipsy August 2017 Glam Bag.
While the bag is cute, I am more interested in the makeup items I got. First item that caught my eye is the Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask. They can attribute that to the bright eye-catching packaging color. I use face masks at least twice a week now so there will be a post on this in 2 months or so. Next is SUGAR Cosmetics Stroke Of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl. The shade I got is 01 Back to Black. I think this is the only shade this particular product item comes in for now though. Then we have the Hey Honey Come Clean: Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub. I’ve been using this about thrice a week and will be posting about it in the next few days. Next we have the MAKE UP FOR EVER EXCESSIVE LASH Arresting Volume Mascara. I have used products from this brand with fairly good results so I’m keeping this one to try out later. Last up is theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow. The shade I got this in is Kuwakaribisha. It’s a nice, light shimmery shade that is quite versatile as it can also be used as a highlighter.
Overall, very nice. My next bag should be coming soon and I can’t wait to see what I get!
Hey guys! I’m so excited about this month’s bag! I get this excited when the bag itself is something I’m in love with. Here’s my take on the ipsy July 2017 Glam Bag.
Eeeeeeeeeeeee! It’s so freaking cute!!! I’ve always liked Sanrio stuff and some characters more than others. I would be lying if I said I didn’t know who this little guy is. I’ve seen him become quite popular in the last year or so. Now onto the products! First up is 111SKIN Space Defence Bright Eye Gel. Quite a unique product name and I’m curious to see how it performs. Stay tuned in a few months to see what my thoughts are on this. Next up is Trifle Cosmetics Raspberry Ripple Ombré Radiance Blush Palette. The shades look promising and I’m actually tempted to use this but I think I will pass this on to one of my nieces. The theme and packaging are really cute and nice. Then we have the Ciaté Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner. The shade I got this in is black. This seems to be in the formula that I like most for eyeliners where it’s a pencil but with some moisture to it that you can make sharp lines. Next we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea™ Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. This is good to use for waterproof makeup so I’m quite eager to put it to the test. Last up is Beau Gâchis Illuminator Brush. I made sure I did the review on ipsy for this month as I mentioned before when I retook the quiz that I don’t want any more makeup brushes. The only ones I use (if at all) are big fluffly ones like my IT Cosmetic ones.
Bag aside, I do like most of what I got this month. I already gave myself the expectation that next month’s bag will be nothing compared to this one due to my excitement over Gudetama! Haha!
Hey guys! It’s been a busy few weeks for me here. Just trying to enjoy summer but there’s always work, chores and a hell of a lot of other stuff. But again, better late than never (heck, I just got my ispy Julu G;am Bag yesterday!) so here’s my take on the ipsy June 2017 Glam Bag.
The bag is made of canvas material I think. It’s functional but not really my style but that’s quite alright as someone else will get good use out of it. First item that caught my eye is the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream. It’s really hard not to notice it with such bright color for product packaging. Next up is the NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé. I’m not sure if I’ll try this out or not. I’m trying to minimize my makeup stash at the moment. The shade I got this in is Cocoa Bean. Then we have the Hey Honey Uncover Detoxifying Mud Mask. I like face masks, especially mud based ones so watch out for a review on it soon. Next we have the theBalm Balm Springs Blush. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — LOVE their packaging even the small ones like this. It’s so darn cute. I think I can rock this shade so it’s a keeper. Last up is Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara. It’s going to my gifting pile as I have too many mascaras lined up to try already.
I wish the bag was different but can’t complain cause I’m so in love with July’s bag! 🙂
Hey y’all! How as this month for you guys? It just flew right on by for me. I know I didn’t get to post much but better late than never! Here’s my take on the ipsy May 2017 Glam Bag.
The bag is very cute and useful for summer! It’s the perfect size to toss in summer essentials like sunscreen, hair ties and lip balm. First item that caught my eye is the Briogeo Rosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray. I’m really into leave-in conditioners during the summer season especially if I’m swimming a lot. Next up is the IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. I have a lot of mascaras open right now but I’ll save it for later. The shade I got this in is Black. Then we have Urban Decay Afterglow. The shade I got this in is Sin. While I like this brand, I don’t really have a need for highlighter but I know one of my nieces uses it so I’ll pass this on to her. Next we have the Starlooks Artist Edition – Luxe Longwear Star Stamp + Liner Pen. I wish that they just gave more product instead of putting the cost towards the star stamp end. I don’t really see a use for it except for Halloween or a night out maybe. It’s not something I’d sport everyday (unless I’m Rainbow Brite!). Last up is Caked Makeup Lip Fondant. The shade I got this in is Low Key.
Overall, I think taking the quiz again helped. I liked this month’s offerings better than last month (which I didn’t even bother to blog about). I hope they keep it up for next month!
