May Glam Bag from Ipsy

Processed with VSCO with a8 preset

Another cute bag! I’m pretty excited for this bag and I wish it came sooner for my vacation since the theme this month is “Destination Chic” and I would’ve totally used all these products while in Florida. Guess I’ll have to use them all summer long instead.

Caribbean Sun Bronzer Duo by Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics – I was a bit skeptical when I saw the blush color, but wow this is so pretty on! I really like this product and it’s something I totally would’ve passed over otherwise. This was definitely the MVP of this month’s Glam Bag.

Hungry Hair Oil Treatment by Eva NYC – I actually have a hair straightener and blow dryer from Eva NYC (read the review here), but I’ve never tried any of their hair care products.

Gel Effect Nail Polish by Aurora in Safety Orange – I have to admit, I would never by this color for myself, but I’m glad I have it in my collection. I don’t normally like orange, but this is neon orange, so I can get down with it.

No-Tug Waterproof Mini Gel Eyeliner by IT Cosmetics – This rules! It truly is no tug. I can’t do wings with it, because it just isn’t as precise as a brush, but this was great for lining my lash line and it stayed! I haven’t really tested the water proof-ness yet.

Lavender Moisture Rich Balm by Jersey Shore Cosmetics – LOVE the lavender! I use lavender in my nighttime routine, so I put this baby on my night stand. It’s great! Feels nice on the lips and isn’t too greasy.

November Glam Bag from Ipsy

Is this not the prettiest bag yet?! I love anything and everything galaxy print, so I was ecstatic when I saw the sneak peaks for this month’s ipsy bag!

    1. China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Techno. This is fun! I love glitter nail polishes, especially silvers. It has both big flecks and small flecks. China Glaze nail polishes always seem to dry pretty fast, too, and this was no exception.
    2. Smashbox Cosmetics’ Full Exposure Mascara. This mascara was nice. It’s very dark and doesn’t clump at all, but wasn’t quite as dramatic as I usually like. To solve, I just layered on some of my other mascara that is thicker and then I had super long, full lashes.
    3. Absolute New York’s Nano Liner. Holy crap. Where has this been all my life? I gave up in finding a liner that had the felt tip like this and actually stayed wet longer than the first 10 seconds you take the cap off for the first time. Normally the color is all splotchy and has to be redone about 27 times to get it to look okay. Not the case with this liner. It distributed very evenly on my lid and made some cat-eyes super easy. I’m in love with this liner!
    4. tre’StiQue’s Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Florence Fig. The cap looks like an opened pencil, so I was confused for a second when I first took it out of the bag. I like this color on me, it’s just a little pinker and bolder than my natural color. It goes on easily and feels good on my lips. It didn’t last super long, but it faded evenly, so it wasn’t a huge deal to me.
    5. Coolway’s Stronghold Spray. This hairspray smells really good and it seems like it held pretty well, but I don’t normally use liquid spray hairsprays like this. I kept getting too much on my hair and it’d make a big wet spot, even if I held the bottle pretty far away. I was using it to keep my bangs in place and when I was teasing my crown. For my bangs, it seemed okay, but for teasing, it didn’t create nearly as much texture as my normal hairsprays do. I think I’ll stick with aerosols.

This is definitely my favorite bag as far as contents and the bag itself. Thanks, ipsy! Can’t wait for Decembers! Want to join for just $10 a month? Click HERE!

I received my first Ipsy Glam Bag and I’m super excited! Even the hot pink, metallic packaging was too on point. Here’s my little review of the items included!

  1. Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Oil Treatment. This smelled AMAZING and made my hair soft, smooth, and shiny without making it look greasy OR make it look greasier faster. I would buy this product again.

2. noyah Natural Lipstick in Desert Rose. I thought this was fragrance at first from the packaging it came in! I’m much happier knowing it’s lipstick haha. It’s a preppy, pink color in real life. This photo makes it look more like a neutral, but it’s a pale pink. It is a matte finish and lasted pretty long. I was happy with this product. It’s very close to the Mac color Snob.

3. AILA Cosmetics Luxury Nail Lacquer in Mister Pookies. Okay, LOVE this color! It’s a deep, muted, purple and right up my alley. It went on easily and seemed to dry faster than the drugstore brands. I’ll let you know how it holds up!

4. Skone Cosmetics Luxe Doubler Eye/Lip Pencil in Wine. This is your standard, go-to lip pencil. It did well to define my lips before adding lipstick. It wasn’t too drying on my lips, which i always a plus. I haven’t used it as an eye liner yet, but it could definitely be fun!

5. Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk. I really enjoyed this cleanser. It smells good and looks more like a lotion. It removed my eye makeup in the shower without leaving me with raccoon eyes when I stepped out. That is a feat, my friends. My skin was super soft and not dried out, so I’d buy this again!
