I am so excited that I have finally jumped on the ipsy train and decided to try out their monthly glam bags, so I can review them for y’all and give you my thoughts on the products. Friendly reminder that glam bags can be different for each customer due to preferences/wants/skin complexion, etc. Still, I am hoping this can give you an idea of what products out there are worth the buy and which ones are not.
This makeup bag is simple but cute. On ipsy’s website, it describes the bag with the caption: “this loud and proud pouch is a not-so-subtle reminder to *always* speak your mind!”
I literally got the worst sunburn on my face today while I was laying out at the pool, and the Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask felt like literal heaven as soon as I put it on. It automatically cooled my face down and made it not feel as dry and painful. I am literally obsessed with this facemask and now I want to go buy a bunch of them. This product is definitely one you should look into for the summer.
The Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask and Green Tea Detox Purifying Mask are both $14.95 for a set of 3 or $44.95 for a box of 10.
I used this as a lipstick for this review post. I am a lover of all nude lipsticks, and this one was no exception. It is light feeling on my lips and super easy to put on. It is nude, so it does not stand out a whole lot as a lipstick, but I still love it. I would definitely buy this product.
The Whipped Lip & Cheek Souflee: Cocoa Bean is normally $6.00, but is currently on sale for $4.20.
This blush is a little darker than the colors that I normally go for. I tend to go for light pinks or I just do not wear blush at all. I actually think this blush turned out very pretty when I put it on, and I was happily surprised at how much I liked it. I would not buy this product during the summer, but I might during the fall.
The INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe is $22.00.
I tend to keep my eyes looking pretty natural and I mainly use various pinks (I know what a shocker). I did not think I was going to like this eyeshadow at all because it is very orange, very sparkly and very bright. However, I think this would be a super cute summer look. You literally can just brush it on, throw on some eyeliner and mascara and be good to go. I think if I was brave enough I would buy this product for the summer.
Shimmer Shadow: Cheers to Life is normally $4.99, but it is currently on sale for $3.99.
I was super excited to get a liquid eyeliner because that is literally all that I use, but I was not excited to get brown because I only ever wear black liquid eyeliner. This liquid eyeliner is super easy to use, and I actually do not mind this brown tone at all. It still looks pretty dark, and I absolutely love it paired with the shimmer shadow above.
Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner: Brown is normally $20.00, but it is currently on sale for $15.00.
PS: The only extra makeup item I am wearing in the photographs is: Sephora foundation and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
