I think it’s about time that I have a couple reviews on this here blog. The past three months, I’ve been subscribed to the makeup subscription service, Ipsy. I absolutely love it! I’ve gotten products that I’ve heard nothing but good things about. Let’s just go ahead and get started!
Disclaimer: All reviews and opinions are my own. This post is not sponsored in any way. I love the service so much, I just wanted to write a few reviews on my bags so far.
Let’s start with July.
This was my first bag, and I loved it! It came with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, EYEKO Liquid Eyeliner Pen, Nomad Cosmetics Highlighter, So Susan Blending Brush, and Hanalei Rose Lip Treatment.
The mascara is amazing! I’ve heard nothing but good and wonderful things about this mascara on YouTube from my favorite beauty vloggers. It separates my lashes, and make them flirty… which is what it claims to do, and it does just that! Every time I wear makeup, which is when we’re going out to dinner, a movie, or just hanging with friends or family. I think if I want to splurge on a makeup item, this one is definitely going to be it.
Now, the eyeliner. I’ve only used it once, but y’all. This eyeliner is everything to me! The night I opened this product, I freaked out! In a good way. I’ve always wanted to do a wing liner, and I’ve achieved it in the past, but only about two times. With this eyeliner, the tip lets me achieve the wing that I want. It’s almost like drawing with a Sharpie. Think of that tip.
Highlighter. It’s becoming one of my favorite makeup item. It lets me know that I’m done or almost done with my makeup, and what a good feeling that is, am I right, ladies?! Anyway, the shade of this highlighter is almost the same as my skin when applied. I love it. (I’m started to get distracted my Downton Abbey, so my train of thoughts are going away. My details and descriptions are getting very short.)
Brushes. I’m starting to love brushes, but cleaning them is a whole other ball game. This brush is so soft, and I even continue describing it. That’s how amazing it is. I actually use this brush to apply my highlighter.
Lip treatments. I don’t ever do lip treatment unless it’s good ol’ chapstick. But the moment I put this product on my lips, the were instantly soft! Normally, I’d have to apply my Burt’s Bees lip balm twice to achieve the softness I like for my lips.
Now that we’re done with July…
Let’s go on to August!
The products for last months Glambag was a contour brush, blush duo, HD translucent powder, a tube of mascara, and a face lotion.
The brush. I haven’t used it yet, but I’m probably going to see how it applies foundation, and blush. It’s soft, I’ll give it that. Like I said, I haven’t used it yet, so I can’t give a true review on it… yet.
The blush duo. I haven’t really used these either. I might have, but I don’t really remember. To be honest, August was a bit of a blur for me. My daughter had her first out of 2 surgeries, so everything is little hazy. This months reviews aren’t going to be good, so please forgive me.
The powder. If I recall, I used this for baking my under eyes, and I didn’t see a difference. I don’t see a big difference when baking, to be completely honest. Maybe I’m not doing it right.. Practice makes perfect, right?!
The mascara isn’t my favorite for this month. I used it, and my lashes immediately clumped. I did my regular mascara applying technique, and it didn’t do my lashes justice. I had to apply my Too Faced mascara, and my lashes separated a little, but not much. I probably won’t use this product again.
Last, but not least, the face lotion. This stuff smells amazing! It smells like I’ve been at the beach. #beachvibes. It makes my face soft after washing and exfoliating.
September’s Glam bag!
I’m gonna talk about the bag for a second. It’s black, and so chique and elegant looking. I think I just found my new makeup bag, ha ha! Now, for the products. It came with an angled brush, a duo blush, a foundation primer, a nail polish, and a face mask.
This brush, like the two before it, is soft. I tested it on my eyelid with no product, and it’s so soft.
The blush duo. I think I like this one better than the last. I just swatched it, and they’re gorgeous! They actually may work better as a highlighter or a eye shadow because they’re shimmery.
The foundation primer, is a Smashbox Cosmetics product. It’s their Photo Finish Radiance Primer. It, too, has some shimmer to it. Mixes with my skin tone very well. I’ll definitely be giving this a try within the next couple days.
The nail polish. I actually have a coat on my left thumb right now. It’s a pretty mauve color. I think it’ll be perfect for this fall.
I’m starting to love face masks. This one smells good. I’ll be using it within the next few days.
Be on the lookout for an update on a lot of these products!
