April Ipsy Glam Bag

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great Saturday. Today I want to talk to you about the April Ipsy Glam Bag. As you know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

Hey Honey Bésame Mucho Lip Balm: It contains propolis, an extract from beehives that is both hydrates and is antibacterial. I put in on my lips at night and my lips stayed moisturized even in the morning.  It retails for $14.

EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip: The applicator was inspired by a calligraphy pen. It makes a perfect line and stays all day. I absolutely love this liner. It retails for $15.

Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter: I have a big fan of glow shimmers and highlighters, and what I like about this one is that it’s not dramatic. I love the subtle look I can create with this highlighter, but you can layer it to make it dramatic. Nonetheless, it does not last long.

OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush: I love blushes, and I love how subtle the blush is. However, I did not like the packaging at all.

My dear readers! Though I really love Ipsy, overall, the April Ipsy Glam Bag a disappointment to me. However, I do have to admit that I really admire the creativity of the ticket stub makeup bag. I also liked the eyeliner and even the lip balm. The other products were little meh.

March Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy8.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great Saturday. Today I want to talk to you about the March Ipsy Glam Bag. As you know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

Description: The March Ipsy Glam Bag comes in a light peach makeup bag with the following five products: Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer, Tarte cosmetics tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in vibin, ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black, Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa, and Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush.

Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer: I love the fact that this moisturizer is packed with antioxidants and I have sensitive skin but like trying new products. This one didn’t dry my skin out.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tarte cosmetics tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in vibin: This lip paint has velvet matte finish and is neither too matte nor too glossy. I really enjoy the color and it lasted all day! However, It’s a dry formula, and it came off in flakes. To counteract that I wear my Eos balm as a base, which really keeps my lips moisturized.

ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black: This is a long-wearing, water-resistant formula that doesn’t smudge, budge, or transfer. However, it’s really wobbly and hard to draw with. I am always afraid that it will break anytime. I am really disappointed with this one. I would rather use a liquid liner.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa: This is a shimmery rose colored shadow and gives a nice subtle tone to your eyes. However, for a more dramatic look first just spray your brush with a setting spray. I am an eyeshadow fanatic and love that this shadow glides in smoothly and does not flake. However, I really do not like the fact that it has talc it. I am not a fan of talc, hence I am not happy about it.

Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush: This is a nice soft brush. However, I am really disappointed that I didn’t choose brushes in my preference but was still sent brushes.

Overall, I am disappointed with the March Ipsy Glam Bag. However, I really like the makeup bag, the moisturizer, and the Tarte lip stain. I am hoping for a better bag next month as the last few bag did not disappoint me.

February Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy7b.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday! Today, I want to talk to about February Ipsy Glam Bag. As you may know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

Description: The February Ipsy Glam Bag comes in a denim makeup with neon border and five products: Marsh Mineral Eyeshadow in You’re Toast, Luna Highlighter in Calypso, NYX Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry, Absolute New York Nano Eyeliner, and Biobelle Fiber Facial Masks in #Stay Gorgeous and #iWokeUpLikeThis.

Marsh Mineral Eyeshadow in You’re Toast: This 100% natural eyeshadow can be used wet or dry depending on your need for a dramatic or subtle result. The shadow retails for $22. This is a nice shimmery shade for a night out. However, I am not a big fan of the container though the shadow is very pigmented.

Luna Highlighter: The pale lavender baked highlighter is buildable and looks on every skin tone. It retails for $23. It glides on easily and creates a beautiful glow. It is highly pigmented, hence little goes a long way. I really like the subtle look it creates.

NYX Butter Lipstick: This satin finish lipstick is creamy.  It has a beautiful semi-sheer color. I love how it glides on and the color was vibrant on my lips. It is also quite moisturizing. However, it transfers easy and fades quick, not long-lasting whatsoever. The lipstick retails for $6.

Absolute New York Nano Eyeliner: This ultra fine precision liquid liner is water-, smudge-, and fade-resistant, hence stays put all day. It glides on easily. In order to test how I well liner works I try to create something with the liner on my skin so check if the liner glides on easily and the if liner can fine precision line. As you can see from the picture of the panda (something close to panda maybe?) that the lines are fine and precise. I really like that the liner is waterproof. It is very precise when you need a simple line to open up your eye look. However, it is not recommended for use when you want a thick line. It retails for $9.99.

Biobelle Fiber Facial Masks in #Stay Gorgeous and #iWokeUpLikeThis: These are all natural, biodegradable fiber that adheres face like a second skin. #StayGorgeous had almond oil that softens and moisturizes skin, while #iWokeUpLikeThis contains vitamin c, which is responsible for brighter skin. In order to use the masks, leave on for 20 minutes, then remove before the mask is completely dry. If you’re planning to moisturize after, give your skin a quick rinse, otherwise, just massage in any excess. These masks were quite refreshing, they made my skin soft. I’ve only used one so far but I loved it. Stays on your face fairly well and delivers a lot of product. I will update if there is any issue with the other mask. Each mask retails for $4.99. Hence two retails for $9.98.

In conclusion, my February Glam Bag contains  $70.97 worth of products for just $10 in a beautiful makeup bag. Do you like what you see here, when like on the link here and sign up for ipsy get your beauty bag each month for just $10 per month.

January Ipsy Glam Bag


ispy

Hi there my lovelies! Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Friday so far. To be honest, I did not imagine today the way it turned out to be. However, we cannot dwell on the past. As I have said before, I believe in the saying, “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” So, my beautiful readers, make the most of today and fight for your beliefs because time waits for no one.

ispy2

Today, I want to review the January Ipsy Glam Bag. In came in a blue silver stunner that was inspired by skyscrapers! Inside the bag are 5 items: Pretty Women Nail Polish in I Am Not a Ballerina, NOTE Fragrances Pink Peony Eau de Parfum (5 mL), Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss in Blame Game, ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini, and Manna Kadar Cosmetics Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow.

Pretty Women Nail Polish in I Am Not a Ballerina: Who does not like a nice pink toned nail polish? I love the baby pink color. One thing that I love the most about this nail polish is that it is vegan and cruelty-free. The retail price for the polish is $7.99.

NOTE Fragrances Pink Peony Eau de Parfum (5 mL): This larger than normal sample size has a light floral tone with a hint of citrus, jasmine, and amber musk. The smell is not overpowering. The 5 mL sample retails for $6.

Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss in Blame Game: This is lip gloss looks little darker than nude on my lips. I naturally have a darker lip color hence I have added it to my skin for review. I have been wearing it for couple hours now and so far my lips are still hydrated. I do have to admit that I have not eaten or drank anything during this time. This gloss retails for $22.

ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini: This is a light peach colored blush that creates a nice glow to brighten every complexion. I am always a big fan softer toned blushes and this is a nice one to own. The blush retails for $26.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow: Finally the 3-in-1 is a pearlized powder blush, highlighter, and eyeshadow that comes in a champagne pink shade. It glides on smoothly and evenly in order to provide the perfect amount of color for a healthy glow on your eyes, cheeks or desired areas for highlighting. This Fantasy 3-in-1 retails for $19. I actually love the soft glow it creates and can wait to use it.

My beautiful readers, the January Ipsy Glam bag come with 5 various beauty product with the total retail price of $80 in a beautiful glam bag. If you like what you see click on this link and you too can get 5 beauty products to enjoy each month for $10 a month.

Ipsy December Glam Bag Review


ipsy2

There Hi! Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful start of your Saturday. We started the day with ice and freezing rain. So, I thought I will take full advantage of the weather, sip on hot chocolate and write my review on the December Ipsy glam bag.

ipsy6

ipsy3

ipsybag

Description: The December Ipsy Glam bag came in a hot pink envelop. When you open the envelop you get this beautiful fuzzy makeup bag that doubles as a wristlet going-out clutch! Inside the wristlet, I got Nyx prasmatic eyeshadow in Fireball PS09, Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up, Jersey Shore Cosmetics Peppermint Moisture Rich Hydrating Balm, Tarte Maracuja Oil, and Hikari Liquid Eye Liner.

nyx

Nyx prasmatic eyeshadow in Fireball PS09: Give your eyes extra sparkle and dimension with a fully pigmented metallic texture with NYX Cosmetics Prismatic Eye Shadow. The ingredients include Magnesium Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Nylon-12, Octyldodecanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Carmine (CI 75470), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), and Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510).

nyx-swatch

Verdict: This shadow is easy to blend, very pigmented and with primer it will last all day. The color in this shadow is amazing, and it is so easy to work with. This is a good collection. I went online to check for the price, and is available for $6 at Ulta. The fireball color is current sold out. However, for that price, it is a good shadow to have.

ciate_chloemorello042

Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in Pin Up: Liquid Velvet Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick combines highly-pigmented, gorgeous matte, long-wearing lip color with hyaluronic acid for its intense lip-conditioning benefits so that lips appear fuller, while feeling more supple and smooth. The creamy, non-drying lip formula is infused with Ciaté London’s proprietary blend of moisturizing Plush Pigment, and it features high-performance pigments that glide on to lips for bold color and extreme hold. The innovative precision tip effortlessly lines and fills in lips for perfect application. The lipstick is paraben, phthalates, and sulfates free.

ciate_chloemorello045

Verdict: I love the color of the lip creme. It would look good on anyone.  It goes on so smoothly and is really well-pigmented. This lipstick is long wearing, non drying and there is no fading in the inner lip area. I have another of this from the Ciate London Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Makeup Set. I am glad that now I have two of this beautiful love liquid lipstick and I will use it.You can get the lipstick for $19.

peppermint

Jersey Shore Cosmetics Peppermint Moisture Rich Hydrating Balm: Sopranos, Cake Boss, table flipping Housewives… and all natural skincare. Who knew Jersey had so much to offer? New Jersey mom and beauty vet Jacquelyn Foster Quattro created Jersey Shore Cosmetics to offer safe, high-quality natural cosmetics and skincare. Her goal is to help her customers look good and make healthy choices. Champagne wishes and candy cane dreams. We’re toasting the holidays with the delish scent of peppermint and super soft pouts. Now all we need is the mistletoe. With ingredients like organic sunflower oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, organic peppermint eo, and vitamin e this is a good balm to have.

Verdict: I really like the feel of this lip balm and I love that it’s all natural and organic. Your lip stay smooth for 4 to 5 hours. eos is still my favorite but this is a good lip balm. I love the peppermint feeling. The peppermint was nice and mild, very smooth and hydrating. I am glad that Ipsy has introduced me to the Jersey shore hydrating balm. Get the balm for $10.

tarte

Tarte Maracuja Oil: This is a treatment oil that targets individual skin concerns and delivers balanced moisture for firmer, brighter, and smoother-looking skin. Rich in essential fatty acids known to recharge and replenish skin, Maracuja Oil works to rejuvenate and deliver an even-toned complexion while its infusion of vitamin C creates the appearance of brighter skin. This powerful elixir supports antiaging and provides instant hydration—quenching dry skin without leaving it feeling greasy or filmy. The oil is paraben, phthalates, and sulfates free.

tarte2

Verdict: The oil soaks into your skin, it won’t leave your face oily. This oil is helping my skin. I use it after applying my toner, and serum but before using my moisturizer. Sometimes if I am feeling lazy and want to skip a step I just mix it in with my moisturizer and it still does an amazing job. I have tried it for the past few days and I am loving it.  The sample size cost just $15.

hikari

Hikari Liquid Eye Liner: The final product that I have received in my December Ipsy Glam bag is Hikari Liquid Eye Liner in Iris. Named after the Japanese word for “light,” they bring us flashy colors and high-impact formulas to create any look we like. Whether we’re feeling a little bit boho or a lotta bit glam, there’s a makeup kit that has us covered. Everyday beauty and big nights out—Hikari is always here to help us shine. Why let gold and silver have all the fun? Up your holiday eye game with a bold sweep of this deep violet shade.

hikari2

Verdict: The liner goes on smoothly. However, the shade really isn’t for me. If you like the purple shade then this eyeliner is absolutely for you. Get it for $15.

What did you receive in your beauty subscription box this month? If you like the sample, get this $65 value products for just $10. Hope you enjoy this post as much as I loved writing it.
