April Ipsy Bag Review

I have news: This month’s Ipsy bag will be my last glambag. I have decided to look into other beauty subscription boxes. Nothing against Ipsy, I’m just looking to try new things.

Anyways, on to the super awesome review!

So this month’s theme was dreamer and I received 4 really awesome products. I received:

Tarte LipSurgence lip cream in the color wonder: I love this, It smells like peppermint and feels tingly on my lips. I am a sucker for reds so this is a welcome addition to my red lipstick.

Novex Argan oil deep conditioning hair mask: I love anything that says that it will add moisture to my hair, so this is a welcome addition to the shower. I haven’t used it yet but I do enjoy the smell as well as the fact that it’s 100g  which means if I like it, I can stretch it to 3 or 4 uses.

Crown C427 tapered duo fiber brush: super super soft! I even rubbed it on my youngest’s face and she smiled and laugh ( which babies are the most honest little creatures on earth, so her reviews are trustworthy). I can never have enough brushes, so this one will be joining the others.

Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume: I was really excited for this one. There is no base, heart, or top notes. It’s just one smell (cetalox) that’s used as the very base note in most perfumes. I adore this unique minimalist smell, and the fact that it is allergen free which  is perfect for this time of year when my allergies have me feeling super sensitive.

Trust Fund Beauty That Glo Tho highlighter: I don’t use highlighters too often, but I can appreciate a good one when I see it. This is really creamy and the shade is perfect for my skin.

In my opinion this bag was one of the best that I have received. I may one day return to Ipsy, but for now I want to be a little more adventurous, and while getting makeup tailored to my skin tone, eye color, and personal taste is super awesome, I’m looking for something that will help me get a little more out of the box!

Have you tried Ipsy yet? If you aren’t doing Ipsy, then what beauty subscription box do you like?

February Glambag!

I was so excited to get my glambag! This month the theme is pretty in ipsy pink. I do wish it would’ve arrived a few days ago so I could’ve used them for valentines day. Anyways, let’s begin.

IpsybagWhat I received were the following: It cosmetics Bye bye under eye concealer, Theorie Argan Oil Ultimate Hair Reform Serum, Model Co lip lacquer in Morocco, treStique baby blush stick in Bora Bora Coral, ciate London mini paint pot in Hutch (my go to red). I also received Hey honey good-morning honey silk facial serum (not pictured )for 250 ipsy points.


Favorite Products: (1) Model Co Lip Lacquer: I’ve been getting more and more adventurous with my lipstick colors in preparation for spring, which doesn’t leave much for work. This is a great color to wear. (2) It Bye bye under eye: along with the average lack of sleep dark circles, the skin under my eye is thin enough to see the two veins that run directly under them ( I grew up with people asking if I had a black eye). This concealer is thick and covers a lot better than my go to.

January GlamBag


2016, New year, new goals, and a new subscription service. I recently signed up to the makeup subscription service that many bloggers and vloggers are already using: Ipsy. If you haven’t already heard of it I’ll give you a brief description: Ipsy is a $10 a month beauty Subscription Service. This Subscription service sends out Full sized and Deluxe sample products in a cute, reusable makeup bag. Members also receive points for reviewing the products they get in their glam bags that can be redeemed for more beauty products. So, With that out of the way I’ll be giving  a review of this month’s glam bag as well as a brief review each product I received including their retail price (For deluxe samples I will calculate their retail value based on the price of the full sized product.).

January’s Theme Was All Eyes on you. This month I received Cleansing Cloths, and eye shadow duo, smudging brush, eyebrow pencil, and an eyeliner (pictured above).

Thebalm Mr Write (Now) eyeliner in Scott: Retail Value: $17. This eyeliner is a creamy deep red color (according to their website the official color is Bordeaux). Let me say, I usually am a stickler for only using black or brown eyeliners. However, I absolutely love this eyeliner and the color! It glides on easily and has minimal smudging. You can get this eyeliner in Bordeaux as well as Beige, Bronze, Mocha, Olive Onyx, Charcoal, and Navy on their website Thebalm.com

OFRA universal eyebrow pencil: Retail Value: $13. A universal Shade of brown that glides of easy. I have just recently gotten into doing my eyebrows and using this paired with a taupe colored eyebrow powder has made my brows look great. You can get this Eye Pencil  at ofracosmetics.com

Beau gachis paris smudge brush: Retail Value: $12. I currently use the very minimum of tools needed to achieve my daily go – to look, so a smudge brush was a great new tool to receive and try. There isn’t much to say about the brush aside from it’s a good quality and very soft. I’ll happily be incorporating it into my daily routine for a smoother look. You can get this brush as for $9 and others at a discounted price from beaugachis.com

Pixi by Petra Eye shadow duo in Lavender Bloom: Retail Value: $6. Eye shadow is an essential part of my go to look and this is a great one to add to my collection. The formula is smooth and sheer but easy to build color with and minimal fallout (and I say this trying it out with absolutely no primer or setting spray). You can get this great eye shadow at pixibeauty.com

Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths (Deluxe Sample): Retail Value $5, $15 for The full sized product. I have never used a cleansing cloth but after today I am considering converting. These Cloths contain white willow bark and cucumber extract making them smell as good as they are refreshing. Made my skin feel clean and wiped away a full face of makeup in only one wipe. It also eliminated the oiliness on my T – Zone so I would highly recommend this for anyone with combination skin. You can snag these wipes at skyniceland.com

Grand Total Retail Value: $52

My Final Verdict: An amazing value! $52 worth of products for only $10.Great Curation to the theme and the products are received were amazing. Definitely worth the money I paid.
