Ipsy Glam Bag-January 2019

Hi guys! Welcome back to another very late Ipsy Glam Bag review, this time for the month of January. Ipsy is a $10 monthly subscription of 5 beauty samples (makeup, hair & skin care) inside a cute makeup bag. January’s bag was a striped white & baby blue fabric with bright pink zipper detailing. Now let me tell you what products I got for this month and what I think of them.

*FYI my February bag arrived yesterday, so go to my YouTube channel to see what I got.*

The first product was the Skin Balancing Mask from Goldfaden MD. It’s a clear, gel-like mask that leaves the face feeling soft. But I’ve only used it once because of the weird scent it has. To me, it stinks quite strongly even though it doesn’t linger after removing it.

Next, there was a flat foundation brush from Billion Dollars Brows. This brush is soft and quite nice. As most flat brushes do, it leaves bristle marks on my face. So I’m thinking of using it for mask application instead.

To go with the flat brush, I got the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 in the shade medium sand. I’m still not sure whether I like it or not. It sits kind of weird on my skin, it has clumped around my nostrils and broke down as the day goes on. Maybe it had something to do with the products under the foundation, haven’t figured that out. So I’m going to say it’s a miss but I’m willing to keep trying it out.

Another month, another blush…This time I got the Alternative Rock Vol. 2 Blush/Shadow from TheBalm Cosmetics in the shade Bare Minium. The colors is kind of pink, as every blush I’ve received from Ipsy lately. But it has a nice sheen, it’s extremely pigmented (a little goes a long way) and it stays on all day long.

The last product is a lipgloss from the brand Fluide in the shade Elsewhere. It’s basically a transparent gloss with a blue hue. It has a nice consistency, it’s not sticky and the durability is like any other gloss.

Well, that’s everything I got in January’s Ipsy Glam Bag and I’m excited for February’s bag (it’s finally here!).

Let’s keep in touch!

Ipsy Glam Bag Review-November 2018

Welcome back!  Today I’ll be reviewing November’s Ipsy Bag.  Ipsy is a $10/month subscription that consists of 5 beauty sample products (makeup, hair & skin care).  Which cater to your needs and likes according to a quiz you fill out when subscribing.  Every month the makeup bag changes, November’s bag was made from a plastic material in a dark purple with small black hearts and gold zipper.  Now, let’s talk about the products.

We have once again 2 sheet masks, this time from timeless beauty bar.  As I’ve said before, I didn’t notice any change in my face after using them.  Smell is alright, and they have a lot of serum, so you’re left with an extremely wet face that feels sticky after drying.

Next, a Brow Wand (eyebrow pencil) from the brand Skone in the shade chocolate. I must say I’m impressed by this product.  I’ve been using it for the past 2 to 3 weeks and it’s good.  The formula is just right, it glides enough so it won’t pluck my brows but is not so creamy that it fades easily.  Great color match and duration.  Eyebrows look quite natural.

The Lottie London blush crush in zac (a magenta-like shade) is a great product. It’s incredibly pigmented, with just a tap it covers both cheeks.  And it doesn’t fade during the day, I apply it early in the morning and remove it at the end of my day at night.

Got a foiled eyeshadow from the Balm in the shade Cahoots (silver color).  Has great  pigmentation, when wet it looks even prettier.  Doesn’t fade and it applies smoothly with either a brush or your fingers.

Lastly, we have a mini Smudge Me Not liquid lipstick from Sugar in the shade 28 Trusty Rusty.  It’s a very Christmas-y color.  It goes smoothly on the lips, very thin formula so it doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing lipstick.

Loved this bag, almost every product was amazingly good for me.  Exceeded my expectations and I just hope it keeps getting better.

What did you get in your Ipsy bag?
