Ipsy Glambag #4

ipsy glambag

Another great Ipsy Glambag this month! I love the bag- that adorable little bat charm on the zipper pull is great and I love the lacey look they gave the bag.

What was in the bag?

  1. Urban Decay eyeliner
  2. tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara
  3. Dermelect nail polish in Verdant (?)
  4. Marc Anthony True Professional Hydrating Coconut Oil & Shea Butter hair treatment
  5. Luna by Luna lip crayon in Elara

The only thing I don’t love is the lip crayon, and that’s only because while it looks fine on me, its not my usual color choice. I prefer bolder shades most of the time. The eyeliner is like a dream come true- soft, smooth, and it stays put! Definitely the best eyeliner I’ve ever tried. The nail polish is a great deep green, which will be great for this fall, and even though I’ve gotten a mascara in every bag so far, its the one cosmetic I wear most often so I’m not complaining.

Ipsy Glambag #3

Another super cute bag this month with everything on the scale of awesome. I am loving this subscription so much.

The bag itself is nice- understated plain black with little square faux-spikes all over. A bold gold zipper and a faux-leather fringe on the zipper pull.

Inside the bag:

Here’s what was inside:

  • Birch Juice Hydro Sleeping Pack
  • Medium Angled Shading Brush
  • Pixi Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey
  • Adesse New York Nail Laquer in Deception
  • Colourpop Lippie Stix in Glam Bag Matte X

The nail color is a great medium grey with a faint green undertone. The Lippie Stix is the perfect shade of pink. I suspect the blush will give my face a sun-kissed warmth, and I’ll try the Hydro Sleeping Pack this evening.

Definitely a win all the way across!

Ipsy Glam Bag #2

I recently subscribed to Ipsy’s Glam Bag service and today I received my second Glam Bag. The first one I received, I wasn’t completely thrilled, but I figured I would give it a few months and see if it improved. I was not disappointed this time.

First off, the bag itself is super cute!

And the contents are pretty great. I like that it caters your bag contents to your skin tone, eye, and hair color. That means you’re probably mostly going to get things you can actually use. Here’s what came in this month’s bag.

There’s an organic coconut milk-based facial lotion that smells incredible and its so light and easy to work into your skin. I’m going to use it everyday and see how my skin likes it, and if its a yes, then I can see myself ordering a full sized tube on this good stuff.

The Balm Voyage mini eyeshadow is super cute and a great neutral base color.

The mascara is very welcome because even though I got a mascara last month, my main tube (I’ve been a Mary Kay girl for ages) is about gone so now I have new options. Great since I’ve started wearing make-up again in the regular.

I haven’t tried the concealer yet, but I imagine it will come in useful. Same goes for the large make-up brush. I got a smaller angled brush in last month’s bag.
