May 2017 Ipsy Glam bag Review

Happy Hump day!  I haven’t reviewed an Ipsy bag for a while because the ones I had received lately were just meh!

This May bag is da bomb! I love everything in it, especially the bag.  It’s larger than usual. It could be used for an overnight cosmetic bag. It’s all ice cream cones and popsicles. Sweet!

Ipsy May 2017

Let’s get started.  First off, everything in my bag is cruelty free. Awesome sauce! I got Mannakadar Beauty Bronzer/Highlighter. Retails for $21 and is full size.  I’ll be using this as eyeshadow as I love the bronzer and the highlighter is a perfect color.

Adesse Organic Infused nail lacquer in light blue.  Perfect for summer and full sized, retails for $18.

Luxie Beauty brush number 660, precision foundation brush.  Super soft and full size, retail value $23.

Endless Silky Eye Pen Pixi by Petra in Opal Overcoat, a waterproof sparkly light amber color, should look great with my blue eyes.  It’s mini size valued at $6.

Last, but not least IT Super Hero black mascara.  It makes some amazing claims, check back later for a more in depth review. Retails for $12.

Total value of May’s bag-$80!  Wow!  It only cost $10.  I’ve been getting Ipsy bags since they started.  I was thinking of cancelling it, but not now!  Keep up the good work Ipsy!

When Should I Toss My Makeup? — My Ageless Elegance

Great post from Ageless Elegance. She has some great make up tips and tricks.

I recently decided to clean out my makeup organizers on my dresser. As one who loves makeup, I have collected tons of it over the years- from eye shadows to lipsticks to several mascaras and multiple foundations. I couldn’t even recall when I purchased some of the products or the last time I actually used […]

Dec. 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Happy Thursday!  I recently updated my Ipsy profile, and I’m so glad I did.  They have more options now than they have had in the past.  I’ve had my Ipsy subscription since they started I think about five years ago. It’s only $10 a month, and you always get at least two full size items.

This month’s bag is carpe p.m. I have to say I’m digging everything I got.

Let’s dig in. First item Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Curl Envy Perfect Curl Cream is a deluxe sample size at 1.5 ounces. I have naturally curly fine hair, so I’ll be anxious to try this out. Value $1.85 USD. Next up Hikari Iris Liquid Eyeliner full size- a pretty deep purple liquid eyeliner with a super sharp point. Value $15 USD.

NYX Prismatic eye shadow in Bedroom Eyes full size- a beautiful bronze shadow that will look great on my blue eyes. Value $6 USD. Smashbox Insta Matte Lipstick Transformer deluxe sample valued at $12 USD. Now this is one cool product as it turns any cream lipstick into a matte lipcolor.  It can also be used around the lips to decrease lines and prevent lipstick from bleeding. Being a mature gal, I will really appreciate this. Can’t wait to try it.

Last, but not least I got REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask deluxe sample valued at $18 USD. It’s rated well and I can’t wait to try it. The overall value was $53 USD, not bad for $10!

Here is the eyeliner and eye shadow swatched.

The bag is super cute too, and could be used as a wristlet. It’s fuchsia with a metallic handle and pony faux fur. Sorry it’s sideways.

October 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

I haven’t written an Ipsy review for months.  The bags I’ve been getting lately have been nothing special.  I was actually thinking of cancelling my subscription, but it’s only $10 a month and I’ve been getting it for years.

This month’s bag certainly made up for those recent stinkers.  Each bag has five items. The cosmetic bag is super cute with a Halloween theme. The bag was designed Valfre https://valfre.com/.

Let’s start with my favorite item this month. It’s a full size roller eau de parfum of Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker.  Its .34 ounces and retails for $20.  When I first opened it, I didn’t like it.  Then I put it on, holy cow, it smells wonderful. A wonderful crisp floral for fall.

Next up, an eyeshadow in Satin Taupe by BeauteBasics.  It’s a pretty shimmery taupe that really makes my blue eyes pop. It stays on all day.  I couldn’t find a retail price for the single shade, but it appears to be full size.

I got a full size Essence Superfine Eyeliner pen in black, which is waterproof.  It retails for $2.99.  Essence is a great drug store brand that is super affordable.  I’ve been using the nail polish for a few months and at $1.99 each, it’s a bargain.

Cosmoholic Liquid lipstick in Mysterious Mocha retails for $24.99, a pretty brownish color which would be flattering on any skin tone. The case has a built in mirror, which is always a plus.

Last but not least a deluxe sample of Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil .5 ounces.  It retails for $48 for 5.1 ounces, I valued the sample at $5.50.  I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s rated well.

ipsy-october-2016-glam-bag-10-14-16A great value at over $53 for only $10.  Way to go Ipsy for October 2016. Ipsy
