September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

1. Luxie Beauty LUXIE ROSE GOLD MEDIUM ANGLED SHADING EYE BRUSH 207
2. Nomad Cosmetics Multi-Perfection Illuminating Bronzer Duo in Principessa
3. Feel Renewed Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser
4. Smashbox Cosmetics PHOTO FINISH RADIANCE PRIMER
5. re:p, real elemental practice Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb

I’m really digging the sleek black bag this month! In fact, I love it so much that I’ve already used it as a prop in a few photos. It’s also a bag that I feel I can actually use while out and about. Now let’s take a look at what’s inside!

The Luxie Beauty LUXIE ROSE GOLD MEDIUM ANGLED SHADING EYE BRUSH 207 is a really cute brush. The bristles are soft, but not too soft. I’m loving the rose gold handle. This brush would have made a beautiful addition to my collection, but I ended up giving it to my sister-in-law. She’s in need of some nice brushes.

The Nomad Cosmetics Multi-Perfection Illuminating Bronzer Duo in Principessa is a nifty little bronzer/highlighter duo. Both shades double as eyeshadow.

If you know me, you know that around this time every year I go a little pumpkin crazy. And it doesn’t just stop at food! So the Feel Renewed Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser was a great addition this month. This exfoliating cleanser also promises to be gentle on super sensitive skin. I’ll be trying this out soon!

The Smashbox Cosmetics PHOTO FINISH RADIANCE PRIMER sounds interesting. It combines primer with a glowy highlighter for insanely radiant skin. These little primer samples last a while too.

I’m also excited to try the re:p, real elemental practice Bio Fresh Mask with Real Calming Herb. This multitasking mask clears away grime, calms stressed out skin, and reduces redness. I do get a lot of redness on my cheeks so I’m curious to see if this mask can help calm that down.

Overall, I’d have to say this month’s bag was a pretty great one. When I first saw it I didn’t think much of it. Then I dug in and my feelings immediately changed. This pretty bag is full of great products!

June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Swatches: Balm Springs Blush, Pink Cloud

1. NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in Pink Cloud
2. Margaret Dabbs London Treatment-Enriched Nail Polish in Green Daylily
3. theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush
4. Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream
5. DOUCCE Maxlash Volumizer Mascara

I’m not too crazy about my June Ipsy Glam Bag. The bag itself is cute and there are a few items that will get some use, but nothing really stood out to me.

First up is the NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in Pink Cloud. It can be used on your lips or cheeks. It looks really pretty and pigmented in the swatch, but applies rather sheer on the lips. It also applied very streaky and made for a really bad look. I haven’t tested this on my cheeks yet, but so far I’m not that impressed.

The Margaret Dabbs London Treatment-Enriched Nail Polish in Green Daylily is a really pretty nail polish. And you can never have enough nail polish. Am I right?

I’m pretty sure I already have a sample of theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush. Their little samples are so cute. And it’s always nice to have a nice neutral rose shade to pop in your makeup bag when you’re on the go.

The Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream doesn’t really sound like something I’d use. I might be passing this one along.

Last up is the DOUCCE Maxlash Volumizer Mascara. I’ve seriously got so many mascara samples laying around that I might have to pass this one along too. So that at least someone will use it.

The blush and nail polish will definitely get some use. So it’s not all bad. What did you get in your June bag?

May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Swatches: #32 Practicable, Electric, Sin
1. Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin
3. Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric
4. Cailyn Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable
5. Royal & Langnickel Precision Angled

Before I get into the contents of my May Ipsy Glam Bag, can we talk about how cute the actual bag is? It has little ice creams on it! It’s such a fun Summer bag. I’ll definitely get use out of this one.

I don’t know what to say about the Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Exfoliating Cleanser. It’s an exfoliator and it’s always good to have some samples laying around for travel. Which is probably what I’ll use this for.

Seeing the Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin included in this month’s bag was a pleasant surprise. It’s a really pretty champagne color. I already own the shade Aura and really like it. So it was nice to be able to try another shade.

I’ve never heard of Jelly Pong Pong. But I kinda like saying the name. The Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric is really pretty. I’m digging the gold and rose gold combo. These shadows are very pigmented. They’re really soft and just glided onto my hand. I can see this little duo making for a nice bronzey Summer look!

Cailyn Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable is a pretty cinnamon nude. It actually does look more like a cinnamon nude once it fully dries. However, it takes quite a while. Hence the darkened, wet swatch. Ipsy claims it’s the unicorn of liquid lipsticks. It looks like velvet and feels like silk. It applied nicely, but it feels really weird on the lips. I wouldn’t say it feels like silk at all. It’s very heavy and made my lips feel tight. It also has a scent that lingers. I’ll definitely be passing this one on.

The Royal & Langnickel Precision Angled is a vegan friendly brush. It’s always good to have extra brushes laying around.

While this bag wasn’t as exciting as the first, the actual bag itself is cute and it did contain a few items I’d totally use. Overall, not bad.
