I got a surprise in the mail today and could not have been more excited about it!
Today I got my first ever Ipsy Glam Bag!
Y’all, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this or not. I did A LOT of research though and compared a lot of monthly box subscriptions (in the makeup/beauty products category) and decided for the price and based on reviews that the Ipsy bag would be the best one for me.
For just TEN DOLLARS a month you get a bag of beauty products. Here is my first bag – the February Ipsy Glam Bag:
1) Zoya Nail Polish in Odette, 2) Plump Pout Mini by POP Beauty in Fuschia Freesia, 3) J.Cat Beauty Eyelashes and Glue, 4) Be Matte Blush by City Color in Fresh Melon, 5) Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner
I seriously cannot even tell you how impressed and how please I am with this Glam Bag! First of all, it comes in a super cute bag- and y’all know how much I love a bag! Secondly, the sizes are AWESOME. I never expected to get such great full-sized products! The only “mini” thing is the lip gloss, but honestly it is the perfect size!
I got home tonight and immediately painted my nails. I’ve been in a huge my-nails-have-to-be-painted kick lately and I couldn’t wait to try out this purple color. I have some darker purples but nothing this “light”. It actually isn’t light, but definitely not blackish purple like I already have.(Please excuse my terrible painting skills. y’all know i’m a failure at such things. BUT I am trying really hard to get it together in the nail painting department.)
The nail polish went on like a dream. My only complaint is the brush size is smaller than I like it. But I LOVE the color and 24 hrs later- no chips!
So after I painted my nails I decided to try out the makeup. Then I decided if I wanted this to be official, I needed a selfie with the make up on. Well. I’m not-so-good with the selfie situation. In fact, I had no idea what to do with myself. If I smiled you couldn’t see the lipgloss. But I am a smiley person so not smiling seemed so unnatural and I looked MEAN. HA! So here is my attempt at a selfie….
Gag. Whatever. You can see the makeup I guess even though now I feel like the light is terrible and you can’t even tell the colors.
WHATEVER, I TRIED, OKAY?!I’m more of a lip stain kinda gal lately, but I have been highly impressed with this lipgloss. It stays on well, isn’t TOO shiny and has so much pigment. I absolutely love it. The size is great. You don’t need a lot so even though it is small I will be able to use it for a long while.
Then I tried out the blush. Now y’all know I’m a sucker for some blush and when I saw this HUGE not sample size blush I was SO EXCITED. The hue is exactly what I’ve been wanting and needing- it is a pinky coral. Not too hot pink, not too orangey. A little definitely goes a long way with this blush but so far I have found it to stay on great. So A+ for the blush!
You can’t really tell in that picture, but I do have the eyeliner on. It is a silvery hue and I wondered where in the world I’d ever wear it and I also had MAJOR FLASHBACKS/nightmares of the 90s where we wore some serious white eye shadow and eyeliner. You know what I’m talking about 90’s girls?!!!!! BUT! I put it just on my waterline and it really brightened my eyes up so much! I honestly ended up loving it.
The only thing left in the bag that I haven’t tried are the eyelashes. I’m hoping to wear them on the cruise maybe? I can’t come up with a place worth going through the effort quite yet. My eyelashes are already pretty huge so this would have to be a major glam night for me to wear them.
I am just so thrilled with my Ipsy Glam Bag, y’all! I can’t wait to get another one! I’m sure I won’t always love them as much as this one but I am highly impressed based off my first month.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free in the comments section! Under the picture of the bag I put in links to the products so feel free to click on those and look for yourself at them on the website!
