Hey guys! I’ve skipped posting on the last few ipsy Glam Bags because primarily I had a lot of things going on in my life but also there wasn’t too much that wowed me the past few months. In fact, if I had remembered in time I would’ve canceled my automatic yearly renewal. Oh well, I have another year of it and I hope that it will be fairly good since I canceled after so many years. Here’s what I got in my ipsy November 2018 Glam Bag.
I like the material of the bag this month. It’s a material that will repel drops of water when it comes in contact. I tend to like bags like that the most. First item that caught my eye is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush. I love this brand and own a decent amount of products from them. The shade I got this in is called Quirky. Next item that caught my eye is the Skyn Iceland Brightening Eye Serum. I’m running low on what I use for the delicate eye area so I’m glad to have gotten this in my bag this month. Then we have the Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint. This is a K-beauty brand that is new-to-me but surprisingly relatively accessible since apparently CVS carries it?! The shade I got is called #9 Love Sniper Red. I was about to pass on this but I looked at some ipsy reviews and (at the time I read it) it’s overwhelmingly positive so I thought I’ll give it a go. Next is another item I’m eagerly looking forward to trying it out. Another K-beauty brand? Their roots are with K-beauty though it seems. The Botanic Farm Avocado Honey Rich Water Balm Cream looks like it would be great for the winter months and we’re definitely getting winter weather here right now. Last up is the Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara. I *might* actually keep this as I haven’t tried a new mascara lately and I am itching to.
This might be the first time I actually liked every single item I got including the makeup bag. Wow! I know this trend will probably not stay but a girl can hope, right? I’m very eager to try these out and post my reviews on them at a later point.
Hey guys! It’s almost the weekend again and I’m very much looking forward to it! I’ve done some major damage in terms of shopping the past few days, but how can I resist with all these F&F and 20% off everything sales? I placed an order already with Sephora and ULTA (and that’s on top of my recent ULTA run to take advantage of the BOGO Freeman masks in-store). I also got the second Freeman Mystery Bag I ordered and this one came with the “mystery treat for feet” items. It definitely made me wish I ordered some last year cause it was so much better in terms of being a deal, but at least I got in on the deal this year. I’d regret it even more next year if the price goes up again! But anyway, here’s everything that I got from my ipsy October 2014 Glam Bag.
The first item that caught my eye is the ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream Beauty Balm for Hair. BB Cream for hair? The packaging looks so elegant that thoughts about it being a gimmick stopped screaming in my head (it’s still in the back of my head, but I’m trying very hard to be unbiased without trying it out first). I’ll be using this shortly and provide a review on this for sure. The next item is the Starlooks Lip Gloss. The shade everyone got is Guilty Pleasure. It looks to be a pretty shade, but I’ll save this up for my niece that loves lip products. Up next is Skyn Iceland Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths. To be honest, this is the item I wasn’t too thrilled that I got initially. I never really use products like this, but I’ve heard a few girls rave about it so far after getting this in their ipsy bags that I’m actually looking forward to using this now! And this leads to the item that looks the most unassuming: MicaBeauty Mineral Eye Shadow. The shade I got is in Harlequin, which is a deep teal-ish green shimmer it seems. I have too much eye makeup that I’m saving this one for my niece that loves turquoise and similar shades. The first item I ended up trying is the Figs & Rouge Hand Cream. The scent I got is Mango Mandarin but it doesn’t smell anything like it in my opinion. I can smell a hint of shea butter in it. I ended up using it first as my dog seems to like this item the most out of this month’s bag. He tried to eat it!
If you read my review on last month’s bag here, you know that I am so in love with the bag itself that I wasn’t sure how they can top it with the next one. They kinda almost did actually! I LOVE everything about this month’s bag. I love the color and the material of it. It’s simply perfect. Keep up the great job ipsy!
