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 Cosmetics 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!).
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!).
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.
Hey guys! The weather got dreary again with the rain. It’s nice after the short but very hot few days we have here in Oklahoma. I’ve got a chance to sneak in some pictures though before this rainy weather started. Here’s what I got in my ipsy June 2015 Glam Bag.
I didn’t really care for the bag this month but I do find the material interesting. First item that caught my eye is the bulkiest one of the 5: SheaMoisture Shea Butter Lip Crayon. The shade I got is Sarah, which looks bright fuchsia to me right off the bat. I was thinking of giving this away just because I have so many lip products open at the moment but we’ll see. Next item I fished out is the tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon. I got this shade in Aspen Pine. I’m definitely passing this one on as I am trying to trim down my current makeup stash. Then we have dr. brandt® pores no more® vacuum cleaner. I’m eager to try this product out as it deals with pores and I have pretty large pores. Next I got Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I’m debating on keeping this one because I’m always searching for a good makeup primer just for my own reference really. I’m curious which brand of makeup primer will perform the best at a good price point. Last item is the Pure Brazilian Miracle Leave-In Conditioner. Hair conditioning item? Sign me up. I’ll be putting this to the test the next few weeks.
Overall, last month’s was better unfortunately. I hope it picks up again because I’m debating on signing up for another subscription service instead of this one actually. Any recommendations?
Hey guys! I just got this in today and managed to snap pictures of these real quick. I had great luck with my first box with them in 2014 (Target Spring 2014 Beauty Box) and I skipped one I think because the price went up and the contents didn’t really appeal to me (update: Yup, I skipped the Winter one but got the Spring one this year — Target Spring 2015 Beauty Box). As soon as I saw what some of the items were this time around, I just pulled the trigger and got it. This deal is available online only and is sold out. Here’s what I got with mine:
Everything came in a white reusable sturdy cardboard box. Everyone else I know that got this received the same exact things in it with the exception of the Sinful Colors in terms of color and also the Fekkai item. Some got a dry shampoo or something like that while others got some oil spray or something.
The Fekkai is a staple that I come back to every so often so I’ll definitely be keeping that. I’ll give the Olay a go since I’m in an in-between period in trying out stuff in search for a good eye cream. I actually love the Revlon lipstick on first glance. We’ll see if I still love it when I wear it. The Cutex nail remover pads will make a nice addition to my travel toiletries and I might give the nail polish to someone else since I have over a thousand of those. For $7, not bad still and it does come with a $3 off $15 coupon on beauty items to use at Target.
Stick around for some reviews on some of these items at a later date. Were you able to get the box and if so, which is your favorite item?
