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!
