ipsy February 2018 Glam Bag

February was such a busy month for me. I co-hosted a baby shower a few weeks ago and February was the month where we did everything that is needed for it. Venue search was a little frantic in the beginning but it all worked out. Invitations were sent out with 3 weeks to RSVP and I was busy DIY-ing stuff for it in all of my free time last month. All in all, everything went smoothly on the day of and I now have more time for the blog. 🙂 Since I missed blogging last month, here’s what I got in my ipsy February 2018 Glam Bag.

The bag is okay. I can see the romantic aspect of it but I thought it would scream more Valentine’s to me than this. But moving on, first item that caught my eye is the BLAQ Meteor Shower. I’m currently saving it for a day or night out or something — it’s sitting in my shower. I read a few reviews on it and like what I’m hearing so far. Next item that caught my eye is the Sand&Sky Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask. The bright-colored tube caught my eye and I noticed a trend here….BLAQ is an Australian brand and so is Sand&Sky! Then we have the MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow. The shade I got this in is called Foiled Again. I don’t use this kind of beauty product much so it will be a good stocking stuffer for someone. Next we have the Luxie Beauty Blending and Shading Eye Brush. I think I retook the quiz after I got this in my bag again. One of the things I don’t need more of is makeup brushes. Last up is Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold – Healthy Glow Rose-Gold Blush. The packaging of this product is simply elegant and stunning! I’m in love with the packaging for sure.

With the weather warming up, I can see myself using up half of these items I got in this month’s bag.

ipsy February 2017 Glam Bag

What a month it’s been! Time sure flies by fast. It felt like the holidays were just here. I got this in earlier but I wasn’t too excited about it so I took my time in posting about it. Here’s my take on the ipsy February 2017 Glam Bag.

The bag is made of denim — not really my cup of tea but seems to be built pretty good even though it’s thin. First item that caught my eye is the NYX Butter Lipstick. The shade I got this in is called Ripe Berry. I LOVE this shade and have high hopes that it translates the same onto my lips. Next up is the True Botanicals Resurfacing Moisture Mask. I will be trying this out shortly so stay tuned for a blog post on my thoughts on it. The directions on how to use this seems pretty straightforward: “Massage on dry skin (yep, dry), leave on for two to five minutes, then just wipe off with a damp washcloth (no need to rinse). We like using it twice a week before bedtime.” Then we have Lord & Berry Eye Pencil. The shade I got this in is Black. This is a nice small-sized eye pencil that I can take with me even when I’m only carrying the bare minimum. I can’t wait to try this out! Next we have MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow. The shade I got this in is called You’re Toast. It looks to be a pretty gold shade. Last up is The Organic Pharmacy Lip & Eye Cream. This item made me think about it a lot. The skin around the eye and the lips are quite different so I’m having a hard time seeing how a product can effectively affect both areas BUT I’ll try it out and share my thoughts on it here later on.

Overall, eh….I ended up liking it more than I thought I would. I was expecting more out of the makeup bag itself as February is Valentine’s Day but I think they just didn’t go with the Valentine’s theme this time around. That’s cool….I can’t wait to see next month’s bag now! I actually see it on the website right now and it looks so cute and chic!


ipsy March 2015 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I got this month’s offerings from ipsy a few days ago and I’m happy to say things are looking up! I had a great run with ipsy for a long time and then the stuff I got from the last few bags just didn’t really do it for me. The bags itself were more misses than hits lately too although I tried to stay positive about them all. This month’s a whole different story! Here’s what I got in my ipsy March 2015 Glam Bag.

While I ‘m not a huge fan of floral prints, I absolutely adore this month’s bag! The colors are so pretty and soothing. It’s refreshing and I think I’m going to pass this cute number along to one of my nieces. The colors in this just reminds me of her. I’ve never heard of the brand Chella so I was curious as to what the product could be. I thought it was an eye shadow pencil initially, but it’s actually a highlighter. I don’t highlight at all, so I’ll save this to pass it on to someone who does. Next item is from a brand I am very familiar with. I’ve never tried anything from Sexy Hair before until I got one of my favorite hair care items to date (Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner) in my ipsy January 2014 Glam Bag. With that said, I’ve been looking for another leave-in hair treatment and the Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Creme Oil fits the bill. The NYX Butter Lipstick shade I got is called Little Susie. It’s a very pretty shade that I actually like — I’m keeping this one. I heard the formula is quite lovely, so I’m looking forward to providing a full review here soon. I also got the MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow this month and like most eye shadows I get from my past ipsy glam bags….I’ll be passing this one to someone else who can use it. The last item I got is the dr. brandt® pores no more anti-aging mattifying lotion. This item intrigues me and I’ll be trying it out starting tomorrow. I don’t wear any makeup at all usually (just moisturize and go!) and I’d like to see if this actually works. I have pretty big pores that I detest, but I like the ease of not wearing much makeup at all (aka moisturizer only).

Now that this bag got me all excited about ipsy again, I can’t wait for the next month’s bag! 🙂
