Ipsy Glam Bag: February 2017

Makeup is one of my absolute favorite hobbies. Though since I am a teen (which basically means I’m constantly broke) ipsy is a great affordable alternative to spending all of my savings at Sephora!

The Bag

This month the theme of the bag was ‘Much Love’. The featured bag was a blue jean fabric with neon orange detailing. This months bag was not quite suited for my preference but it was still very cute looking.

Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow 

I received this eyeshadow  in the shade ‘You’re Toast’ which is a medium brown shade with a gold undertone. After swatching this shadow it seems have a fairly buildable pigment and isn’t too dramatic for everyday use.

Lord & Berry Eye Pencil

I prefer using pencil eyeliners for tightlining but this one seemed to irritate my eyes for a few minutes after application so, I’ve been using it to do some basic eyeliner as well as creating a smokey liner look. The product itself has great color payoff so you get the perfect opacity in just one swipe.

VENeffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment

I always love getting new lip treatments from ipsy, though this sample stood out as being VERY small. No offence ipsy but what am I going to do with 3ml of lip product? The formula wasn’t overly impressive in any particular way either.  It is hard to believe that 10ml of this product retails for $85! This was definitely not my favorite product I have received.

Luxie Rosegold Blush Brush

I am absolutely in love with this blush brush! I prefer the shape of this brush over any of the common blush brush shapes. I rarely end up with too much blush on this brush and it blends like a charm!

Briogeo Heat Protectant Creme

This product made make hair shiny and soft after flat ironing my hair. My hair did not feel dried out the next day instead it felt quite moisturized and smooth. Something about the scent of this product has got me addicted. Will definitely repurchase!

Ipsy October Glam Bag Review

For the past year I have been an ipsy subscriber. So far I’ve been loving it. For anyone who doesn’t know what ipsy is, it’s a $10 monthly subscription bag filled with 5 different beauty products. Each month there is a new theme and bag. This months theme was ‘Black Magic’. You can find out more about ipsy on their website: https://www.ipsy.com/

Glam Bag & Theme: This months bag was totally my style! The Halloween themed pattern was absolutely adorable especially with the light pink background. Overall the theme was extremely appropriate for this time of year and the bag was beautiful as always!

Ciaté London Liquid Eyeliner: This eyeliner was super easy to use. I rarely wear eyeliner which means I don’t have muck skill or experience with the product but I found using this liner was a breeze!  I had very little transfer and no problem getting the right shade of black every time.

The Balm Hot Mama Shadow/Blush: The Balm shadows are always very common in ipsy bags so its not surprising to see one in my bag. I must say that I have been sent a lot of products with practically the same pinky-gold color as this one. Although I do frequently use that color I think by now I have probably got over a years supply of this shadow.

Preventive Measures After Hours Lip Balm: This balm is the bomb! I used this lip balm just before bed and woke up with some super hydrated and soft lips. I can’t wait to use this with my favorite lip scrub all winter long.

Noyah Natural Lipstick: I received ‘Current news’ which is a gorgeous deep berry shade that would be perfect for a fun Halloween makeup look. This lipstick does not dry out your lips, instead it stays creamy, lightweight and is even said to hydrate with Shea butter and Vitamin E. All around this natural lipstick is the best yet!

Elizabeth Grant Green Power C Hydrating Cleanser: This vitamin C infused cleanser left my skin feeling clean and fairly hydrated. It wasn’t the most amazing cleanser I’ve ever used but it sure got the job done well. This product has a very nice rich formula that you only need to use a small amount of to lather and clean the face.

That’s everything I got in my glam bag this month. I would rate the bag about a 7/10, I loved the variety of products I got but there were a couple things that could have been better (ex. Shadow color) but as always I loved my bag. Also remember to check out ipsy using the link at the top of this post. Thanks!
