Hope y'all enjoyed this post! I know it's not the most exciting one, but I'm saving some of the products I have to review after my second winter break. Go out and purchase some of these and try them for yourself!
So I've never done a review on my monthly subscription to the website Ipsy. Basically, Ipsy is a makeup company that will send you a "glam bag" every month with a bunch of make up goodies and samples. I started receiving mine in December, and I started my subscription in November as a birthday gift from my aunt. I wanted to do a review on the December glam bag, but I totally spaced and didn't write one, so I decided to do one for my January glam bag instead.
First off, the glam bag from January was a silvery-blue bag with little holes on the whole thing. I like the bag, but I have a few problems with the products I received inside my glam bag.
Pretty Woman Nail Polish in I'm Not A Ballerina: Overall, I really liked this product, it didn't go on patchy, and I could have only done one coat and been okay. Rating: 4/5
Smashbox Cosmetics Camera Ready BB Cream: This product really frustrated me. The texture was ideal for what a BB cream is supposed to be, however the shade I was given was too dark for my skin tone, and it had a yellow undertone when I have a pinky-peach undertone to my skin. It was frustrating because I really couldn't test this product out on my face since the shade was wrong, and I didn't want to walk around all day looking like a bad lemon or something. Rating: 3/5
Lasting Smiles Lip Balm in Passionfruit Mango: Not gonna lie, I haven't even touched this since I received it; mostly because the scent really bothered me. I'm very sensitive to sweet smelling things; they tend to give me headaches and nausea, so I typically steer away from them. I probably will never use this product just based on it's smell. Rating: 2/5
Pacifica Blushious in Wildrose: This blush is absolutely gorgeous. It is completely versatile, and the shade is absolutely stunning. I think the shade is really nice for most skin tones, and when I swatched it, the color payoff was pretty good. Although I haven't used this yet on my skin, I think I'm really going to like it. Rating: 4/5
Manna Kadar Cosmetics Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow: This eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous. The color pay off on the swatch was opaque and made me excited to try and use it. Rating: 5/5
Overall, this glam bag didn't disappoint me, but it definitely didn't impress me. I was hoping for more things that I like to use considering that they make you take a quiz on your preferences and skin type and tone, etc. However, I am still hopeful for February's glam bag. My rating of this bag as a whole will be below! Hope y'all enjoyed!
Tip of the Week
Don't pluck your eyebrows!! Plucking your eyebrows can actually rip out the hair follicle which means hair would never grow in that spot ever again!!
