It’s been a minute since I’ve posted but a new school year has begun and i’m now a sophomore in college. Needless to say, I’ve been quite busy, but I was able to catch up on homework to type up this post! So here we go!
Alright, well we’ve all seen monthly subscription boxes for vinyl records, food, stickers and yes of course, makeup as well! I really wanted to make sure I was choosing a beauty subscription box based on the quality of products, the price and how custom they can be tailored to myself. I chose Ipsy because they carry so many brands, it’s only $10 a month, you get a makeup “Glam Bag” carrying all of your monthly products and you get skincare, brushes, nail and hair products! I just received my first glam bag and thought I’d make a post about it! This glam bag is for the month of August so sorry for the delay.
The first product I used from this lovely glam bag is the This Works In Transit Camera Close Up. This is a primer, moisturizer and mask ALL in ONE! The first day I used it I noticed the areas on my face where I would get dry patches, DID NOT show up. After coming home from working a double waiting tables, I look in the mirror and see smooth and hydrated skin. This stuff has Hyaluronic Acid, Argan and Sunflower oil and caffiene. After reading up on this product and the ingredients it contains, I can totally see why it works so well. This is a game changer. Oh! And it smells so fresh which I’m all about. This is my favorite product from this Ipsy Glam Bag.
The second product is from NYX and it is the Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Gleam and this stuff is super pigmented and adds such a beautiful shine and gleam to any cheekbone. Using the smallest amount will give you a big results. NYX, you’ve done it again.
I’ve never used Formula X nail polish and while this color is super pretty, it does contain chemicals that I prefer not to use so I won’t be using this nail polish, unfortunately.
Since getting these Symphony Beauty makeup wipes with the combination of using coconut oil to take my makeup off, I’m love it so much and I feel like I’m not rubbing my face to hard. These makeup wipes not only smell like magical dreams, but they also contain no parabens, sulfates or alcohol.
The last goodie I got was is from the brand Lord and Berry and it’s the Crayon Lipstick in Maxi Matte. This brand uses raw materials and hypoallergenic ingredients. The color is like the perfect nude lip color that mimics the natural color of lips. On my skin tone, it is a bit lighter but this stuff does not feel drying whatsoever and it feels so light and easy to wear.
