ipsy December 2015 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I really didn’t care for last month’s bag that much so I didn’t even bother blogging about it. I got this month’s bag a few days ago and it’s more exciting, so I went ahead and snapped some pictures to share my thoughts with you here. Here’s what I got in my ipsy December 2015 Glam Bag.

First — the bag….I’m not in love with it but I’m digging it still. The red patent quilted pattern is quite cute and I actually like that it provides more waterproof protection than a regular fabric bag. First item that caught my eye is the Pacifica Power Of Love Natural Lipstick. The shade I got is called Tender Heart. It’s a little bit mave-ish to me on first look so I thought I’ll try it out. Next up is Tarte Smooth Operator™ Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder. I don’t use finishing powders really and actually already own this. With that said, I’ll either stash this away for an extra in a gift or just keep a backup if I really end up liking it. Then we have the Marc Anthony Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment. I’m very eager to try this out as I’m always on the lookout for hair conditioning products. It comes with the territory of long hair I think. Next is the Skinn Sugar Lips Polishing Scrub – For Dry & Lined Lips. I want to see how this fares against similar items I’ve used in the past. Last item is Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. I’m adding this to my pile of primers that I use to test in search of a Holy Grail primer.

Overall, not bad. I’m actually keeping all of these items it seems. It’s been a long time I got an ipsy bag with that kind of record!


Borghese 9-piece Skincare + Color Collection Set

Hey guys! This week was super hectic. I even worked some today and it’s a Saturday! Hopefully it’ll be over soon. It just makes me look forward to my upcoming staycation even more. I was sent this recently. It was a total surprise really! I just got the package one day — so thank you Borghese! There will be detailed reviews on each product as time goes on but for now, here’s what you get with the Borghese 9-piece Skincare + Color Collection Set.

Borghese 9-piece Skincare + Color Collection Set

This set is currently available still on their website and is on sale! The sale price is actually a very good deal that I would’ve taken advantage of if the set I have wasn’t sent to me. The item I am most excited about in this set is surprisingly the palette. The only makeup item I’ve used from Borghese is their nail polish and I love their formula and colors. But other than that, I know the brand more for their skin care products. The lipcolor is in the shade Grappa while the lip glosses are in shades Spark and Simmer. The eye liner is in the shade Pitch Black. Enough yappin’ here and let’s get to the goods.

ipsy October 2015 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I was very surprised how fast I got this month’s bag. It was in the mailbox yesterday when my husband checked. Here’s what I got in my ipsy October 2015 Glam Bag.

First off, while I’m not in love with the bag….I still like it. I love the fact that it’s gold. The other side is in black patent. First item that caught my eye is the Emité Make Up Professional Slant Tweezer. I’ve been due for a new one so this might be a good contender. Next up is Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum. I’ve used a product from this brand before so I’m open to trying this one out. I hope the scent isn’t the same as even though the product I did try said it’s unscented….the scent made me gag slightly. Then we have the AURORA Gel Effect Nail Polish. The shade everyone who got this is their bag is Inky Dinky. I’m not sure if I’m keeping this yet but I may just to compare how it fares to other brands. Next is the Beauty Without Cruelty Fragrance Free Hand and Body Lotion. Last thing I need right now is more hand and body lotion since I have a ton from Bath & Body Works. I’ll probably have this as an additional gift to someone eventually. Last item is theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick. The shade that everyone who got this item in their bag is Committed.

Overall, I’m most excited about the item from theBalm and I actually laughed at the name of the product (they’re pretty good and cute at naming their stuff!).


ipsy September 2015 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I got this in the mailbox when I was away on a short trip so I was wary about it since it was mildy hot here but everything seems to be okay. Here’s what I got in my ipsy September 2015 Glam Bag.

First off, the bag. I actually love it! I’m very excited since I really liked last month’s bag as well. Before that it was a series of pretty much mehs for me. First item that caught my eye is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair® Cream. I *think* I have this somewhere stashed from some Thanksgiving sale last year but I never got around to using it. Now I will have a travel sized one to use! This will ensure I actually get to try the product sooner. Next up is Formula X Nail Color. The shade I got is called Ignite. I have too many polishes to go through at the moment so I might just pass this on as a stocking stuffer to one of my nieces later on. Then we have the NYX Cosmetics ipsy Eye Shadow Trio. It looks to be a pretty nice trio and the colors seem like it will work for most eye colors. Next is tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon. I have too many lip items so off to the stocking stuffer stash it goes. Last item is the ACURE Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes. Being that this is unscented, I’m keeping this baby for use when my husband and I go on one of our hikes.

Overall, the products are not bad but I do love the bag more. I was going to cancel but the auto-renewal kicked in and at the moment I’m okay with that. Haha, let’s see if I still feel that way next month (I hope so!).


ipsy August 2015 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I just got this in today and went on to snap pics so I can use the bag immediately. Here’s what I got in my ipsy August 2015 Glam Bag.

Can we talk about the bag? I think it’s so cute! It’s the first bag in months that I’ve actually really liked! The print is simple but so pretty. First item that caught my eye is the Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Oil Treatment. I have heard a lot of good things with this brand and I just recently got a trim so I’m looking into keeping my hair as healthy as possible. This seems to be the answer to that. I’ll be donating my hair probably the end of the year next year. Next up is Jesse’s Girl Eye Shadow Primer. I don’t wear makeup much especially more so with eye shadow but I do have a few makeup primers on hand that I’m putting through the test. I just want to find one good one and who knows — this may fit the bill. Then we have Lord & Berry Ultimate Lipcolor and Liner. The shade everyone got for this would’ve been Nude. This is small enough to toss in the smallest clutches I have so I may just keep this one. Next is BelláPierre Cosmetics Mineral Lipstick. The shade I got is P.I.N.K. According to the description online on ipsy, it’s supposed to be very pigmented and lasts all day. Last item is the LATHER ultra mild face wash. Being that this is for sensitive skin, I may just pass it on to someone else that can use this product more. I typically like my facial washes with more scrubbiness and those typically don’t apply to those for sensitive skin.

Overall, the bag makes up for everything that could possibly be short in my eyes.
