Quick Ipsy December Glambag Review!

Hello again all! โค I received my lovely little pink bag in the mail today, so you know what that means… Review time! ๐Ÿ˜€

The little card is so adorableย it has all the famous youtubers on it but in little cutesy drawings! I really don’t read these anymore though, because they always mislead me. So let’s just get right into it!

FullSizeRender (36)

FullSizeRender (24)

First off we have this sweet little teeny tiny Fomula X Nail Polish, in a gorgeous shimmery champagne golden shade called “Revved Up”. I’ve heard great things about Fomula X and i’m excited to try it because i do not own any colors byย this brand. I especially like this color for the upcoming Holiday โค Did any of you get a different shade?

FullSizeRender (27)

The next few items i’ll cover now. Starting off with the Anti Aging Lip & Hand Polish by Jersey Shore Spa in the scent “Vanilla Bean.”

Here i squeezed a little out for you to see the texture & consistency. It clearly has a very abrasive exfoliating quality to it, with large sugar crystals and also nice hydrating characteristics because of the jojoba oil you can see draining off. I have been in dire need of a great lip polish in these colder months here in AZ. So i was VERY excited to see this, and since i plan on only using this on my lips the deluxe sample size will last me FOREVER! I also love the smell, it’s more of a natural Vanilla Bean scent than the typical artificial vanilla cake smell. Thank you Ipsy!ย โค You saved my lips!

Next up we have the two lip products i was sent!

Left: Pacifica Power of Love Vegan Lipstick in ‘Nudie Red’

Right: Model Co Illusion Lip Liner Pencil in a Mauvey/Brown Shade

First off i would like to say if you want to see a lip swatch of these two products, check out my last post because i used them together to create a beautiful natural lip! I absolutely LOVE the texture of both of these, they glide on your lip and are super creamy and opaque. I usually would prefer if Ipsy sent me brighter colors, but these are the perfect nude duo, and i am so happy these were sent to me. Great lip products! โค These are both FULL SIZE also!

And lastly, we have the dreaded hair care sample:

If you read my Ipsy reviews you know that i am never too happy when i get a heavy glambag only to crack it open and find a big ole’ tube of hair product or hand lotion ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I like coconut but i don’t need these types of samples as i already have a pretty religious hair ceremony. LOL. Passing this item off to a friend.

And that’s all for my Ipsy Glambag! I really hope you all enjoyed this review, let me know what you got in YOUR bag down below! โค Love you all! ๐Ÿ™‚ Remember to follow my instagram and youtube channel if you haven’t already!

Ipsy October Glam Bag! 2015

Hello my loves! So sorry i haven’t been posting lately, but things will be picking back up here i have quite a few posts to make in the near future about lots of fun makeup topics! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’„ And one big beautiful HAUL coming soon!!! Today, i will be sharing what i recieved in this months october ipsy bag. If you do not know what ipsy is, i encourage to to go ahead and check out their website it explains it all for you there. Baisically it is a 10$ monthly beauty subscription that is shipped to you with 4-5 deluxe samples, a makeup bag and sometimes one full size product (eyelash curlers, nail colors, makeup brushes etc..) Last months ipsy bag really didn’t make me too exited, i got a lot of stuff i wouldn’t use. This month, i got a lot of stuff i probably wont use and tried to do everything in my power to not recieve in my ipsy bags (hand lotions, hair products, etc.)

This months theme was “Alter Ego.” It made me so excited when i pulled this card out of the bag and the gorgeous girl had bright beautiful extravagant makeup on and neon pink hair! “This October, transform into whoever you want to be. A little imagination and your glam bag is all you need. Infinite possibilities, infinite ways to express yourself” was printed on the back. I was so sure i was going to get some bright awesome colors and products, but i was wrong. I really don’t see how this card related to my bag at all unfortunately, but it was a nice picture to look at.

This is itCosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara in a sample/travel size. I like this product and i’m excited to try it since i haven’t yet, so this one made me happy. ItCosmetics is a great brand i have tons of their brushes and i’ve used some of their other products too, anyone who got this was probably happy as well. ๐Ÿ‘

Here i have a Peter Lamas Pumpkin Exfoliating Facial Scrub travel size, it smells like a spicy fall time sweet dessert but a little over the top smelling at that. The exfoliating property of this seems like it would work very well it has thick exfoliating beads in it. Maybe i will use it on my legs or something i don’t think i would want my face smelling like this as i get migraines very easily.

Then there is the Eva Nyc Therapy Session hair mask travel size, i might try this or maybe pass it on to my mother. She also has an ipsy bag subscription so we will call each other and trade items next time we see each other haha. ๐Ÿ˜„ It smells very strong and perfume like. But the smell isn’t bad. You may like it a lot ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here we have a pair of cheaply made tweezers by Emite Makeup. I buy really good quality tweezers that are costly but worth it to me, because i do my own eyebrows and it literally makes the job a hell of a lot easier when you have a pair of precisely made, flat sharp tweezers at your service. These have no use for me. ๐Ÿ‘Ž

And then we have an awesome The Balm Liquid Lipstick in “Committed.” Very small sample size. It is a nice everyday neutral color, in a matte formula. Once again, nothing to do with this months theme.. It feels very tacky even after 5 or so minutes, but just hold off on smooching or eating etc. for a bout 10-15 minutes then it will fully set and there will be no smudging at all. I know it seems long, DNA cosmetics lip colors set immediately and stay put all day unlike The Balms formula, and it is much more affordable. Definitely recommend checking them out if you haven’t, their lip colors are TO DIE FOR. But this one smells exactly like thin mint cookies, other beauty bloggers were definitely right about that! Haha, don’t know if i would want such a strong smell on my lips all day but we shall see. ๐Ÿ™Œ

Well that’s everything in this months bag, please do enter my giveaway international & U.S. welcome! I will be announcing the winner Oct. 25th! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ Keep tuned in for more reviews, makeup looks, a birthday haul, and much more! Comment and leave your thoughts honeybees ๐Ÿ˜˜

September Ipsy bag!

Hi lovely girls! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just wanted to quickly share my thoughtsย and feelings on what i received in this months glambag. So let’s getย started!

image

So, here are my five items.

image

Queen of the Fill Eyebrow Gel, in the absolute wrong color for me. It’s quite alright though, because this is my mother’s spot on color and i’ll be passing it off to her. I did try it on my brows regardless of the color scenario and i have to say i like the way it applies, and i’m sad it’s the wrong color. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

image

Here i have some Argan Oil for my hair & some ย ultra repair hand/body cream. I am not to happy about receiving either of these products, since i am simply already an avid argan oil user and i have so much that it will last me forever. I really wanted this subscription originally for all the makeup samples. I suppose this is good for traveling purposes though! ๐Ÿ™‚ The cream i am not pleased with because i really really really don’t want any hand/body lotion deluxe sized samples in my glambags. I made sure not to choose that i was ‘interested’ in lotions either when taking the quiz. I’ve got plenty of lotions that i love in full size and these guys just never seem to impress, and this one just smelt really awful. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Bad. Gonna have to give these both a thumbs down!

image

Well, i was also sent a small NYX palette in some very neutral colors. It came with a light shimmer tan, a dark shimmer brown, and a matte black shadow. I think the colors go with the theme, but i have tons of variations of these shades. So this one is a dud for me unfortunately too. The TrรฉStique lip crayon was my favorite of this bunch. It’s nice and creamy, applies super smooth. Mine is in a pretty natural pinky-mauve color. I can see myself using it often ๐Ÿ™‚ Overall, i’ll be patiently awaiting next months bag with higher hopes of better “tailored-to-me” products โค

What did you get!? Thanks so much for reading honeybees! Leave thoughts & comments for me! ๐Ÿ™‚
