A little late again but better late than never! Ever since I started Pokemon Go from scratch last week, all my free time has been devoted to it. I finished with the Articuno raid with my co-worker friend Lohan and a bunch of his friends. I used all raid passes and I realized I have to get used to being in raids more (I forgot to use the golden razz!!!). Anyway, here’s what I got in my ipsy June 2018 Glam Bag.
The bag I got is nice (ignore the fly on one of the products — the picture above was the best products group shot). It’s a material that will repel drops of water when it comes in contact. Very good to have those on hand. First item that caught my eye is the FORMULA 10.0.6 Three Times Sublime. I love face masks and this one is described on ipsy as “a cleanser, exfoliant, and face mask (yup, all three) that treats blemishes, removes blackheads, unclogs pores, and controls oil.” Next item that caught my eye is the MAKE UP FOR EVER STEP1 Skin Equalizer Primer. I’ll try it out to see how it smoothes out my large pores. Then we have the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Eye Repair Cream. I’ve has great experience using the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream so I have high hopes for this. Next we have the Kaleido Cosmetics Skin Blush. ipsy subscribers got this in either Prom Queen or Primadonna, which is what I got. Last up is the Estate Cosmetics Lip Icing. The shade I got is called Goodie.
Not bad again! Next month’s bag should be out in transit to me shortly and I can’t wait cause I saw what the makeup bag looks like and it looks really nice. I hope the material is nice too.
I know this is late but I had taken the pictures already so we’ll go ahead with it anyway. Here’s what I got in my ipsy April 2018 Glam Bag.
I LOVE this bag! It’s quite beautiful really. I saved it to give it to my MIL. It makes me think of mothers for some reason (I think it might be the rose gold and the butterflies?). The first item that caught my eye is the H2O+ BEAUTY Oasis Hydrating Treatment. I’m very much into skincare right now so this is right up my alley. Next is the Purlisse Coconut Oil + Coffee Sugar Body Scrub. I love body scrubs so this went straight into my shower. Then we have the Smashbox Cosmetics Always On Liquid Lipstick. I’m still debating if I want to keep this or not. The shade is called Miss Conduct and I’m not sure if it suits me or not (plus, I have a ton of lip products already). Next we have the Manna Kadar Eye Candy Priming Shadow Stick. The shade I got is called S’more. Last up is a Steve Laurant Blush. TI’ve never heard of this brand before but it seems like it would be a really nice blush. The shade I got this in is called Rosé All Day. The other shade some others got is called I’m Blushing.
Overall, I’m very pleased with what I got — especially the bag! I hope next month’s bag continues this trend!
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.
Halloween came by and went as well as Thanksgiving. I’ve been quite busy the past few weeks that posting on here just hasn’t been on top of my list. But the holiday season is now here and the pile of things for me to review are stacking up. Since I got most of my Christmas shopping done already, I can focus on other stuff (like this blog) more. Here’s what I got in my ipsy November 2017 Glam Bag.
I’m not sure if I like or dislike the bag. What I know is it made me think of one of my closest friends immediately so I might just give this to her. First item that caught my eye is the Kensie Perfume. The size I got is the purse sprayer mini deluxe. Since I’m not a fan of trying new scents (most gives me a headache), I will be passing this on to another close friend of mine that simply lovvvves perfumes. Next item that caught my eye is the Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Bitten & Bronzed Matte Bronzer. The packaging is just so eye-catching, as what I have come to expected with anything Lisa Frank. Since I’m not adding more bronzers to what I already have for the moment, I will be passing this on as a stocking stuffer extra for one of my nieces. Then we have the em Infinite Lip Cloud. I liked their mascara a lot so I’m sure the quality of this product is pretty good. The shade I got this in is called Rose Nude. Next we have the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush. The shade I got this in is called Feisty. This is a nice shade but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it or give it away. I do like their stuff a lot. Last up is Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara.
Overall, it’s okay but this is making me look forward to what December has to offer more. Since it’s for Christmas, I’m hoping it will have something that wows me. 🙂
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!
