July Ipsy Glam Bag

Hello! I hope you are well. This month is looking good for my glam bag. My July Glam bag is here so lets talk about what I recevied!

The first is another highlight….I can never have enough highlights. I wanna glow like a disco ball. This is from the brand Nomad Cosmetics. This Illuminating Highlight in Midnight Sun. highlightbrush.jpgnomadhigh.jpg

This eyeliner from Ciate London is their Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid liner in Black. wonderwand.jpglinerbrush.jpgwonderwandliner.jpglinerline.jpg

I love Tarte Cosmetics so I am excited to use their Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel tartecleansinggel.jpg

I am always game for synethic makeup brushes so this Blender brush from So Susan is looking good. I am loving The look of this brushbrush.jpgsusanbrush.jpg

My lips are always dry little gummy bears so I always have a lip balm close by. I have tried so many so why not try another? This one from Hempz is their Ultra Moisturizing Herbal lip balm. I love this. It smells, to me, like pineapple. hempzlip.jpg

To the glam bag!.. This is the cutest little glam bag I’ve received. Sanrio’s Gudetama is the face of July’s Ipsy bag. This little guy is looking like me when I have to go to my day job. I love the animation of this bag. frontbag.jpgeggbooty

June Ipsy Bag!

Hello all! I hope you are well. June is here and so is my Ipsy glam bag of the month! It arrived Tuesday of this week and I actually wasn’t very happy with the products I received so I wasn’t going to write a post about it but my blog isn’t about everything I like. Sometimes, products don’t work for me but I can always make them work if I want to give it a chance! I am looking on the positive side to see if I can make these products work for me. 

The first product is from Nyx.. I love this brand to pieces! However, I received the Whipped Lip and Cheek Souffle. I don’t use blush, but I could potentially use this on my eyes and lips instead.

The next product is from Beauty For Real. It is their I-Line 24/7 Eyeliner in 24 Karat which is a shimmer gold shade. I typically just go for a standard black liner and don’t really have any reason to wear a gold liner. But I could use this to make black winged liner look a bit more unique by outlining it with 24 Karat.beautyrealeye.jpgFullSizeR (1).jpg

Pure Brazilian is a brand that I have received before from Ipsy and it came to good use to me with the leave in conditioner. This month, I recevied their Shine Ultra Light Nourishing Oil. My hair tends to be on the oily side so I wasn’t too excited to receive this but today I used it on the ends of my hair and it made it feel so soft and shiny. purebraz.jpg

The Balm Cosmetics is a brand that I am always happy to get from. Using blush however, is not something that I ever use…because…confession time…. don’t know how to use it. I am trying to make this product work so I will look at some YouTube tutorials to learn the ways of using a blush…or I could use this as an eyeshadow. balmblush.jpg

The last product is from Luna Cosmetics in a pink shade called Jace. This was the product I was most excited to see until I opened the packaging. The shadow has broken and loose shadow was all over. The eyeshadow containter was also broken so I don’t think I’ll be keeping this shadow which I am disappointed about because the color looks so pretty!jaceeye.jpg

To the bag! This was probably my most favorite thing about this Ipsy glam bag. It’s pretty cute and I love the lip and the color block pattern. IMG_8816.jpg

That was my June Ipsy bag! What did you get in your June Ipsy Glam bag?

May Ipsy Bag!

Hello! May is here and it’s been a lovely month so far. My break has started, I’ve been reading books upon books, I’ve been feeling super motivated to post as much as I can, and of course, my May Ipsy bag has arrived!

The first product I received in my bag is from Urban Decay and is also my first product from this brand! It is the Afterglow Highlight in Sin. This champagne toned highlight is super pigmented and really leaves such a beautiful glow on the skin. I have been getting quite into highlighters lately so to receive another one perfect for summer is such a score! I love brushing this highlight of the tip of my nose, my brow bone, the inner corners of my eyes and of course my cheekbones. I love the glow this highlight provides and how long it lasts!

The next product is from Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric wowed me to no end. These shadows are so pigmented, the fallout of this shadow is nonexistent and the colors are out of this world. This cute little shadow duo comes in a gold and rose gold color and while I don’t usually like shimmery shadows, these have me wanting to experiement with more shimmer.  (Gluten, Paraben and Cruelty Free)

The next is a hair care product from Beauty and Pin-ups. It is their Fearless Hair Rescue Mask. Now I have not used this product just yet but I am liking the thought of hair masks. A few months back in another Ipsy bag, I received a hair mask from Quai and I loved it, so I am quite excited to use another hair masks and see what it does to my hair!

More eyeliners? Anytime! Pixi by Petra and the Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Noir is such a smooth, creamy and highly pigmented liner and one that doesn’t easily smudge. I am always on board for a liner as dark as the night sky and this one is pretty darn close. I love going over my strip lashes to cover up any glue or skin that I may have missed. This liner for sure does the job.DSC_1479.jpg

The last is from Caked Makeup and a brand I haven’t heard of until now. This Lip Fondant in Low Key is a nude red tone and is such a summer color. I haven’t used this product but I am ready for a bright summer color!

DSC_1458Can I also mention the stupidly cute makeup bag? It has ice cream cones and popsicles and I love the transparent style of this bag. The size of it also fits everything I need and more! Best bag since I’ve signed up!DSC_1474.jpg

What did you get in your Ipsy bag?
