Ipsy Glam Bag Review 2016! πŸ’–

Hi dolls! I missed you! I haven’t talked to you sweeties in a while. I am so sorry I have neglected my blogging, just started a second job and i’m working 40 + hours a week now and I just haven’t had time to come on here and type my fingers off.. πŸ˜₯ I truly apologize girls, and I am going to seriously get back onto my precious beauty blog and bring you guys more stuff to read and tutorials to try, new brandsΒ to fall in love with, all of that great beautiful stuff! πŸ‘„ I really hope you all understand and will keep looking into my blog every once and while to check for new posts! Today, I recieved my Ipsy Feb 2016 glambag. So it was a perfect way to motivate me to sit my butt down and blog.

Let’s get started!


The first two items I want to review with you beauties is the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil & a gorgeous naked cosmetics mica loose pigment shadow in “Sierra Nevada” that I recieved.



The mineral eyeshadow from naked cosmetics has a beautiful shimmer and velvety feel to it. It is super easy to apply and shows up nice and pigmented on the first swipe. It is full of beautiful sparkels & shine that do not show up truly in the picture above.. But this is a very dreamy, earth tone, light catching mocha brown shade. I am in love. Perfect for everyday glam. πŸ’•


As for the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil, this is pretty much a product based soley for dry skin. I have really healthy normal skin that is dewy- just mildly moist but not dry whatsoever, so unfortunately I can’t use this nice product. I can tell by the crazy slick & typical oily consistency that it wont sit well with my skin, so I am not even gonna risk it. Other women who have dry skin in need of some moisture; this product claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness, increase moisture in 4 weeks, and creates an ideal canvas for applying makeup as well. So this just might work perfectly for you! 😁

Next up, I was sent a mini Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind lipgloss in the shade “Pink Sequin,” and a pink Luxie flat definer shadow brush.


The gloss:Β 

  • Β Smells cheap
  • Tastes strange
  • Gritty texture

Other than these unwanted traits, it’s a gorgeous pretty light pink champagne color. It’s a shame I wont be using it becuase of it’s noticable cheap quality and scent.

The brush:

  • Gorgeous pink handle
  • Very precise flat tip
  • No loose hairs at all

This seems to be a really great quality brush, always love recieving new ones to play with! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’• Thanks Ipsy!


The last product I was sent is this Perfectly Posh- Best Face Forever Pepermint, Grapefruit and Aloe Vera Exfoliating Face Mask. This mask seriously smells minty and incredibly refreshing, it has large exfoliating sugar grains that definitely gets the job done when it comes to shaving off all those lame dead skin cells revealing new, soft and vibrantly healthy appearing skin. I like the combonation of the pepermint and aloe vera, it makes for a very soothing combination and spa-like experience! πŸ’†πŸ» I am giving this face wash product a chance, even though these normally turn me off.

Thanks for reading babes, missed you all so much! 😘 Leave me some comments and thoughts. I really hope to hear from some of you. Untill next time ladies! πŸ’‹

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! πŸ’–πŸ’„ 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. πŸ‘

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. πŸ˜„ It smells very strong and perfume like. But the smell isn’t bad. You may like it a lot πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ‘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. πŸ™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! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Keep tuned in for more reviews, makeup looks, a birthday haul, and much more! Comment and leave your thoughts honeybees 😘

September Ipsy bag!

Hi lovely girls! πŸ™‚ Just wanted to quickly share my thoughtsΒ and feelings on what i received in this months glambag. So let’s getΒ 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. 😦

image

Here i have some Argan Oil for my hair & some Β 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! πŸ™‚ 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. 😦 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 TrΓ©Stique 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 πŸ™‚ Overall, i’ll be patiently awaiting next months bag with higher hopes of better “tailored-to-me” products ❀

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