February ipsy Glam Bag Review 2015

 IPSY LOVE February Glambag

wpid-wp-1424321935404.jpeg

 GOODIES:

  • City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini
  • Demeter Fragrance Library First Love Roll-on Oil
  • GLAMGLOW Bright Mud eye treatment
  • ModelCo. Blush In Peachy
  • ‘Tini Beauty Rob Scheppy Eyeshadow

POSITIVES: Blush: very pretty color, especially for the coming Spring, packaging on this blush is super fancy as well, feels very sturdy. Eye-shadow: LOVE shimmery champagne colors. Who doesn’t?! It gives off a lovely shimmer and is a great yellowy gold shade. Lip-stain: This stuff is SO nice! almost a dupe for the NYX Soft Matte Lip creams. Thankfully its pale nude-pink shade goes well with my skin tone!

NEGATIVES: Bag: very mundane….with V-day I would have thought it could have been more creative, but I guess its decent for everyday use. I hate the front zip. It shrinks the bag size by inches! Fragrance: This oil got everywhere. I am clumsy. Yes. But I swear it was not human error. I smelt like a flower pot for hours. (lasting power could be a slight positive though!? Maybe?!)

Feb. Bag

This bag nearly completed an entire makeup look with what I received! It makes me want to wear all the products at the same time….ALL the time!

GLAMGLOW

LOVED using the GlamGlow eye treatments!! These felt very cooling and tingling on the skin. Although I have to say that the chucks of whatever kind of herb/grass/lint-looking specks were pretty off putting. But not so much that I didn’t use them, and I still plan to use them again!

January ipsy Glam Bag Review 2015

 FRESH START January Glambag

ipsy glam bag january 2015.

 GOODIES:

  • Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush
  • LashFood Phyto-Medic Lash Enhancer
  • Malin+ Goetz Mojito Lip Balm
  • Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow
  • Probelle Into The Blue Nail Lacquer

POSITIVES: All Over Shadow Brush- EXCEPTIONALLY soft, and the handle is a reasonable length. Mojito lip balm is very thick and silky feeling on the lips, and not at all goopy.

NEGATIVES: Pacifica mineral eye shadow should be labeled “highlighter” see swatch clip below, its hardly noticeable even after a couple layers.

This bag included plenty of fun addtions to my collection, and I love getting full-sized products for the price of the bags each month too!

Look out soon for a NOTD post using the Probelle polish as well as a Put To The Test blog post on the Lashfood product, to see if this truly does beef up your lashes after a month of use.
