October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Good morning! It has been quite a while since I last wrote a blog post. The Fall came so quick and has been super busy, but I am back on the blogging track now! The first thing to show you is my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

My October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

My October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Even though last year they did a Halloween theme with the bag, this year was much more subtle. I happen to love it. The October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag is a maroon shade with lace pattern imprinted. There is a small Halloween hint with the bat on the zipper.

The adorable little bat on the zipper!

Now let’s see what items I got in my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

Items I got in my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Items I got in my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

  • IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder
  • Skinvolve Phoenician Secret Scrub
  • Tony Moly Peach Hand Cream
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
  • MeMeMe Beautiful Brows Brow Pencil

I haven’t tried any of these items before so this bag was very exciting to open. I love body scrubs and the Skinvolve one is made with coffee and peppermint which are scents I absolutely love. I also love peach things so the Tony Moly cream is awesome. It is pretty small for a hand cream but it’s a good brand and I’m excited to receive it.

The IT Cosmetics powder is pretty popular so that got my interest as well. I typically don’t use a powder to set my makeup but I know I should be, so this works out perfectly.

The Tarte mascara is a classic but I’ve never used it so I am looking forward to that. The last item, the brow pencil, is from a brand I haven’t heard of before but I do want to give it a shot since I have been really focusing on my brows lately. I love that it has a spoolie on one end!

I really like everything I got in my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

I really like everything I got in my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

Overall my October 2017 Ipsy Glam Blag is full of five items I am very excited to use. They are all new to me but nothing is too funky or unique. I feel like this bag really suits my likes and matched to my profile very well.

September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Does anyone else feel like you just woke up and suddenly it was almost through September? It came so quickly and I feel like summer passed by in a matter of minutes. September means the start of Fall, lots of people going back to school, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and of course my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

I want to start off by saying that I totally love the bag this month! I love the chic black faux leather studded style. It’s cool but still simple and I can see myself using this for more than just miscellaneous storage.

Aside from the cool bag design, I think I got a pretty good bag this month. My September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag has three full size items which is awesome.

All of the items in my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

All of the items in my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

The items in my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag are the following:

  • ColourPop Comsetics Lippie Stix in shade Glam Bag: This is an exclusive colour created in collaboration with Ipsy. It is a beautiful bold magenta hue and has a matte formula. I love ColourPop Lippie Stix (and liquid lipsticks) and have a bunch already so this was something I knew I would enjoy.
  • Hanalei Papaya Enzyme Powder Cleanser: I have never heard of a powder cleanser but this sounded neat. It’s meant to be a super gentle scrub that is safe for sensitive skin so I will be giving this a try.
  • Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Radiance Primer: This is pretty much a primer mixed with a glowing highlighter so it could be pretty cool. I don’t tend to go for radiant finishes since I already have pretty oily skin but I do like other Smashbox primers so I will give this a chance.
  • Manefit Beauty Planner Masks (2 sheet masks): This was so fun to get two sheet masks that count as one item. One mask is Astringent + Pore Care and the other one is Whitening + Brightening. Unfortunately I did try the Astringent + Pore Care one and though it felt nice on it left my skin very tingly afterwards so it might have been a bit strong for me.
  • Pixi by Petra Fresh Face Blush in shade Beach Rose: This blush has a soft rosy shade and is made with hydrating ingredients like Vitamin E. It’s really pretty and I liked the last Pixi brand items I tried, so I am excited about this blush.

Out of the items in this bag I really love the ColourPop Lippie Stix and Pixi by Petra Blush. The blush swatched nearly invisible on my arm, but on my cheeks it was a nice light rosy tint.

The Hanalei cleanser is a unique product I have never tried and I really like the chance to check out new items each month. The Smashbox primer has me a little skeptical due to my skin type but I love seeing this brand in my Ipsy bag.

Overall I think two items are amazing, one is neat to try (the powder cleanser), and two are so-so (Smashbox and the masks). I would say that is a pretty good verdict for my September 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag, but I think I liked my August bag better.

My August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Today I have my August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag to show you. I am really happy with the items I got this month and I like the bag design as well.

The bag had three different styles available which were sent out at random. I got the one that says Good Vibes Only, on a blue, pink, and purple ombre background with a gold tassel zipper pull. I like the look and it is fun for the last month of summer. It does feel a little stiff and plastic-like, and it smells a bit like that too, but I think that will fade quickly.

August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

The items I received in my August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag are the following:

  • Catrice Cosmetics Highlighting Powder in shade Champagne Campaign – this is a full size highlighter that is a lovely light champagne shade. It smells like vanilla and I really like how large the pan size is.
  • CLIV Max Hyaluronic Mask – This Korean face mask is meant to hydrate skin and help with anti-aging. I don’t have dry skin so I haven’t tried this yet but it seems like a neat item.
  • The Balm Cosmetics The Balm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in shade Willkommen – This is a tiny eyeshadow sample but I love The Balm so I don’t mind. The shade was one of two possible ones, and I got the caramel shimmery bronze shade which I was really happy with.
  • SLMissGLam T35 Precise Blending Brush – I have never heard of this brand but the brush is super cute and feels pretty soft. I love getting eyeshadow brushes in my bag since this is how i build my collection of tools.
  • Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara – The only other MUFE mascara i have ever tried (Smoky Stretch) was incredible so I was very excited to see this one in my bag. I have too many open mascaras at the moment bus this is the top of my list to try once I finish a current mascara.

All in all I think my August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag was a big hit. I am very happy about the mascara, highlighter, brush, and eyeshadow. The mask is neat but not for my skin type so I will be passing that along to a friend. I have 4/5 products that I would absolutely have chosen for myself and am thrilled to have so I definitely consider this month’s bag to be one of my favourites.

June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Today I have another adorable Ipsy bag to show you! Last month was the cute ice cream print Ipsy bag and this month is another really cute design. I am very happy with the items I got in my bag this month. The June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag was a total hit for me! In fact it may be my favourite bag yet! 

As for the bag itself it is a really quirky and cute polka dot bag with a large lip print graphic and black border. I love the look of this and will definitely be using it this summer. It is back to the traditional rectangle shaped bag that Ipsy normally does but I like the size so it works out for me.

June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

My June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

What did I get in my June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag?

The five items I got in this month’s bag are a wide range of items.

  • Skone Cosmetics Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner in shade Jet Black
  • NYX Cosmetics Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle in shade Cocoa Bean
  • Pure Brazilian Shine Ultra Light Nourishing Oil
  • The Balm Cosmetics InStain Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in shade Pinstripe
  • City Color Cosmetics Shimmer Shadow in shade Cheers to Life

Out of all of the five items I received in my June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag I am really happy with all of them. Not a single item is a disappointment and I like them all, but there are definitely some stand-out products that I want to talk about.

The Balm Blush, City Color Eyeshadow, and NYX Lip & Cheek Souffle

The Balm Blush, City Color Eyeshadow, and NYX Lip & Cheek Souffle

I absolutely love the NYX Lip & Cheek Souffle and was wowed by the super creamy and soft formula. I don’t think I would wear it on my cheeks since it is so shiny and glossy, but as a lip product it is incredible. It has a yummy vanilla cake scent and is smooth to wear. It feels great on my lips and is a really nice nude colour. I think it would be brown on lighter skin tones but since I am quite tanned I usually need a deeper hue to get a nude lip, and this is a really great shade for that.

The City Color Cosmetics Eyeshadow really surprised me. First of all it is a huge pan, and second of all the colour is stunning. It is a gorgeous bronze gold hue that has some crazy shimmer/metallic look. I was so impressed when I swatched it and it looks even more incredible in real life.

The Balm InStain Blush is also a huge hit for me, since I have been looking for a long-lasting blush for summertime. I like the shade and love the formula, however the sample size can be a bit tricky to get a brush into. I’ll make it work because I really like the products though!

The Pure Brazilian Oil is great for my hair in the heat of summer. I tend to need extra care during these warm months and I spend a lot of time in the sun and water, so this nourishing oil will be great to help my hair keep it’s shine and save my ends from frying.

The Skone Cosmetics Eyeliner is neat to check out and since it is such a staple item. It isn’t super unique but black liquid liner is a classic for a reason, so I am glad to have this in my bag.

Overall my June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag was a total win and I like all five items I received. With this bag being such a great one it makes me very excited to see what July has to offer!

May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Today I have my May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag to show you. I am pretty happy with my items this month. If you recall in April I did a little experiment where I got two bags to see if I would get different items with a different profile. You can check out those two bags here and here.

For this month’s bag I am very happy with two of the items, pretty content with two others, and a little indifferent about the last one. Overall as a whole I think the May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag is a success for me and I am happy with it, and I am especially happy with the bag itself.

My May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

My May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

Let’s take a minute to talk about the bag. I have to say I am in love with the design of the May 2017 bag! It is a clear pouch with a black zipper and is covered in prints of ice cream cones and popsicles. I think it is super cute and can totally see it being used at the beach or pool. It is a different shape than the typical rectangle Ipsy bags and I like that a lot.

Now onto the items in my adorable ice cream print bag!

What did I get in My May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag?

  • Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in shade Posh
  • Beauty & Pin-Ups Fearless Hair Rescue Masque
  • Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen in shade Opal Overcoat
  • Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette
  • Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in shade Surfer Girl
Three of my favourite items from my May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Three of my favourite items from my May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

The Pacific Island Life Eyeshadow Palette is an amazing items to get in my Ipsy bag because it has 5 shadows and they are all really beautiful. Instead of a usual eyeshadow sample which may be a mini duo or even a single magnetic pan, this is a five shade palette. The colours are gorgeous and have some lovely shimmer. The shades in this Pacific palette are great for an everyday look and I can see myself getting a lot of use out of these.

The Pixi by Petra Eye Pen (which is actually an eye pencil) is a really smooth, creamy eyeliner and I think that the shade I got is pretty unique. I don’t have anything like it and it goes pretty nicely with the Pacific palette hues. This Pixi by Petra Eye Pen also came in a black shade but I am happy that I got the Opal Overcoat shade instead. It is a lovely champagne shimmer hue that is very opaque.

The Mellow Cosmetics Lipstick and the Hair Masque are nice to have, and I will give them a shot. I love matte lipstick and enjoy trying out a new brand so the lipstick is nice to try. The Hair Masque is something a bit different and in the summer I can use all the help I can get for my hair. I think I like getting this type of item in my bag because it isn’t something I would normally purchase.

I am not super excited about the nail polish, although it is a really pretty colour, it seems very similar to the polish I got last month in my April Ipsy Glam Bag. I do get that this turquoise shade is hot for summer but I basically got two of the same polishes in a row so I think this one will be passed onto a friend.

Overall I am happy with my May 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag and am already excited to see what June has coming!

My second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag (Profile Comparison Experiment)

This month I decided to try out a second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag just to see how similar or different they would end up being. I answered the profile almost the same as my original bag, and let the Ipsy gods give me what they wish. I actually ended up with a bag that I really love. I was super excited about 4 out of the 5 items in this bag, and am really pleased with this bag overall.

The April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag that I got with my original account and profile was not as successful, as I only really liked 3 of the 5 items. This new experimental profile ended up giving me a much more tailored bag somehow.

My second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

My second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Let’s see what I got in my second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag!

OFRA Cosmetics Blush in shade Rendezvous 
This is my first ever OFRA Cosmetics product and I have been so excited about it. It is a very deep peachy shade that looks a lot darker in the pan than it is in the swatch. It is completely matte which is different for me, as I only have shimmery blushes. I really like this blush a lot.

Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in shade Delish
When I saw this was included in my bag spoilers I was beyond thrilled. I absolutely loved the one I got in my last bag (in the brick red shade Vibin) and was so happy to get another colour. Delish is a medium nude hue and has the same smooth and light formula as the other one I have. It dries down way deeper on my skin than it looked in the tube.

Side note: I really don’t think I would have gotten this item in my other bag because I already had one last month. I am so glad I decided to do my experiment this month!

Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter
I was also excited for this product since I like to try out highlighters but I never purchase them myself. This is a smooth shimmery powder with a nice light pale gold hue. I can be used as shadow or highlight and I will definitely be trying it out as both options.

Theorie Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum
This could not have come at a better time! I was just looking at all my split ends and problems with my hair, and planning to add some light highlights this weekend, so a hair serum is the perfect item to help nourish my locks. This serum is safe for colour treated hair so it will be the first thing I use after I do my highlights!

Dream by PS Cosmeceutical Infused Nail Lacquer in shade Southern Sand
Normally I pass on the Ipsy polishes I get in my bags and give them away to friends and family, but this one I may have to try. I like the colour of it and it seems like a perfect fresh light nude shade for Spring and Summer.

OFRA Rendezvous Blush, Theorie Marula Oil, and Elizabeth Mott Shimmer & Shadow Highlighter from my second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

OFRA Rendezvous Blush, Theorie Marula Oil, and Elizabeth Mott Shimmer & Shadow Highlighter from my second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

Overall with this second April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag I am very happy with the OFRA blush, Tarte liquid lipstick, Elizabeth Mott shadow/highlighter. I am definitely going to be using the Theorie hair serum as well, and I like the nude shade of the nail polish.

This bag was a big hit, and I have to admit it was a lot better than my original April bag.

April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

It’s that time again – subscription boxes are arriving in my mailbox and it feels like Christmas. Today I have my usual April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag unboxing and review. The theme this month was Side Show, which seemed to have a circus-like style. The bag itself fit that theme with the ticket design and is actually pretty cute.

The bag is a bright coral colour with lavender writing and the date April 1, 2017  backwards as the barcode numbers on the side. I like the idea and it is a cute colour for Spring.

My April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

My April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag

What did I get in my April 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag?

Defy & Inspire Wear Resistant Nail Lacquer in shade Paradise Island
This is a lovely bright and light turquoise shade and it is meant to be a long-lasting formula that will resist chips. I normally don’t like the one-off polishes in Ipsy bags because it looks weird being a single brand in my collection, but this shade is really nice. I might give it a shot one day and then pass it along to a friend who will use it more often.

Skin&Co Roma Truffle Therapy Face Toner
I am always a little unsure of skincare items in subscription bags because I never know how I will react to it or if it will irritate my face. This toner is meant to brighten skin, remove bacteria and dead skin, and make pores look smaller. I can’t tell if I will try it yet since I just started a new skincare routine and don’t want to mess with it, but maybe in the future I can check this out.

Ciate London Mini Bamboo Bronzer in shade Palm Island
This bronzer has oil-controlling ingredients and looks like a lovely shade to get a little glow. It has neutral undertones so it won’t make you look orange. I look forward to using this for a bit of a faux glow this season.

Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Black
I am not skilled at winged liner by any means but I am always up to try it again. This liquid liner has a super skinny tip and jet black formula that is meant to stay in place all day. I never buy myself liquid liner so although this may not be the most exciting Ipsy item ever, it is something I will be trying to use.

Tony Moly Liptome LipCare Stick in shade Rose Blossom
Tony Moly is a brand I have been hearing so much about lately! I have been really curious about it and I absolutely love lip balms, so this is super exciting to me. This is a chic looking lip balm that has lots of hydrating oils to keep my lips soft, smooth, and silky. It feels awesome and it smells so fresh and rosy – just like the Benefit Benetint scent.

Tony Moly Lip Balm and Ciate London Bamboo Bronzer

Tony Moly Lip Balm and Ciate London Bamboo Bronzer

Overall I am thrilled with the Tony Moly lip balm and will definitely be using the liquid eyeliner and the bronzer. I am not super into the nail polish and am unsure about the facial toner this month. 3 out of 5 isn’t too bag though so I still think my Ipsy bag was a hit this month, but it wasn’t a total hit like it has been in February and March.

March Ipsy Glam Bag

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Today I have my March Ipsy Glam Bag to talk about. I love this bag and and really thrilled with most of the items in it – and a little creeped out by one item! I love the bag design this month and am very pleased with my Ipsy subscription lately. Have you seen my February bag? That one was also full of great products!

The bag itself is larger than the normal Ipsy bag and I love the bigger size. The others seem more like a small and flat pencil case, where as this one looks more like a clutch. The bag is a lovely soft pink with a rose gold zipper, and one side is plain velvety fabric while the reverse side has neat mesh-like netting. I think this is really cute and I will actually use this as a little clutch. I think this is the first bag I can really use in all of my months of Ipsy!

What I got in my March Ipsy Glam Bag!

What I got in my March Ipsy Glam Bag!

So what did I get in my March Ipsy Glam Bag?

The five items in my bag this month are the following:

Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment: I have been eyeing my split ends and frizzy hair for a few weeks now so this came at a perfect time. I can’t wait to try it out and it is a really good size for a sample bag!

Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Vibin’: I was so excited when I saw this in my March Ipsy Glam Bag preview, and when it arrived it was even better than expected. Vibin’ is a lovely brick red hue and the formula of this lip paint in awesome. It is super light and smooth, and it dries so quickly. It feels light to wear and has an awesome colour, and lasted for such a long time with no smudging at all.

Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Satin: This eye crayon is a smooth and creamy formula that has a nice sheen to it. I like this a lot and it was really nice to apply. It went on semi-sheer at first but I was able to build it up for an awesome colour. The shade is a metallic grey silver and I am really looking forward to doing a smoky eye with this crayon!

Swatches of the Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Satin (top) and the Tarte Tartiest Lip Paint in Vibin' (bottom)

Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush: I love getting brushes in subscription boxes because I need to build my collection without breaking the bank. This brush is soft and fluffy and has a nice tapered shape.

Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream: This is the one item that creeps me out a little! This is a face cream that uses snail secretion as an ingredient to help heal damaged skin and improve your complexion. This is a Korean beauty brand and is something many people swear by, so hopefully I can get enough guts to go ahead and try this out.

So there we have it, my March Ipsy Glam Bag full of some great items this month!

I’d love to hear from you guys – would you use snail cream on your face? Leave me a comment and let me know!

My February Ipsy Glam Bag

I haven’t posted about my Ipsy Glam Bags in quite a while since I have been so busy but I finally got back into it with my bag this month. I am pretty happy with the items I got in my February 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag, although I am not very excited about the bag itself. Let’s take a look at what products I got this month!

The bag itself is a pretty basic style. It is a denim bag with neon orange lining and border, which is alright but definitely not February themed in any way. They could have gone with a Valentine theme, anything red, even something Winter themed. But neon orange and denim? That seems way more summer fun to me. Either way, I like the contents of my February 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag so I can ignore the bag itself.

My February 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Contents

My February 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Contents

What did I get in the February 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag?

This was an odd month for sizes of products because if you look at what I got nearly every item is full size. I can’t remember the last time that happened but I love that it did. This is awesome to get almost an entire bag of full size items for such a low subscription price, and all of the items are really cool.

The items I got this month include the following:

  • NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Lifeguard (full size)
  • BellaPierre Cosmetics VolumelashWaterproof Mascara  (full size)
  • Biobelle Sheet Masks (2 full size single use masks)
  • IBY Beauty Highlighter in the shade Bubbly (sample size)
  • LAW Beauty Essentials Nail Polish in the shade Leave A Text (full size)

The full size lipstick is a super creamy bold red that is quite popular. I have heard many rave reviews about the NYX Butter Lipsticks and have yet to try one myself, so this was fun to get in my bag. I love bold red shades (have you seen my Instagram post with 15 red lipsticks?) so adding one more to my collection is perfect for me.

The full size waterproof mascara is another neat item to have in my bag. I love mascaras in general but I never ever buy waterproof formulas. Every once in a while I need one, especially in summer or on vacations, so this will be a good item to store until that time comes.

The sheet masks are pretty cool. I have never heard of Biobelle before but I love masks and I know how trendy they are lately. Sheet masks are a nice change from my usual LUSH masks or other creamy ones, so these will be nice to try out on a relaxing evening soon.

The IBY Beauty highlighter looks like a nice colour and I definitely will try it soon. I am trying to get more into highlighting and using more face products instead of just focusing on lipstick (like I have the last few weeks). I am looking forward to putting this to good use soon and getting some glowy shimmering cheekbones!

Overall I am very happy with this month’s bag and look forward to see what I get in March!

My November Ipsy Glam Bag

I always find that I get my Ipsy bag much later than everyone else online, but none the less here it is. My November Ipsy Glam Bag has some great finds in it, and I got a really good value this month. There was recently an update of the Ipsy quiz so I don’t know if that changed what I got but I am pretty pleased with the items in this month’s bag.

The bag itself has a cute starry print with little designs of makeup compacts, brushes, lipstick, and more. It looks really cute and has a foamy type of fabric which is different than past bags. If you’re curious about past designs you can see my previous bags from October, August, and July.

What did I get in my November Ipsy Glam Bag?

November Ipsy Glam Bag

What I got in my November Ipsy Glam Bag

Let’s take a look at what I got this month:

  • Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Moxie Mauve
  • Bonvivant Botanical Pure Masks
  • Bésame Cosmetics Brightening Vanilla Face Setting Powder
  • Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate
  • TheBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara

I am most excited about the Elizabeth Mott Lip Lacquer and the Mad Lash Mascara from TheBalm. They seem like the products most similar to ones I would buy for myself. I have heard a lot about the Vanilla Face Setting Powder as well so I am curious to check it out. The masks are also a great addition to my November Ipsy Glam Bag and it is awesome that I got three different ones that counted as one item.

The Bonivant Botanical Pure Masks I got in the bag are the Chamomile + Tea Tree Mask, the Sodium Hyaluronate + Lotus Mask, and the Collagen + Olive Mask. These should be fun to check out when I get some time to relax!

Overall this bag is much different than my previous bags but I like the variety included. From mascara to brows, lips, and masks, this bag has a little bit of everything.
