Ipsy December 2014 Glam Bag Review

Oh Ipsy, how I love thee.  I’ve been an Ipsy subscriber for over two years.  Every month I get five make up related items.  I usually get three full size products along with deluxe samples.  A cute make up bag with a different theme each month completes the order.   I only pay $10 a month, and can cancel at any time.   I recently tried Lip Monthly and Boxy Glam.  I was disappointed and cancelled both subscriptions.

This month’s bag is Fearless Heroine.  I got a nice sized black and plum make up bag. My bag included full sizes of an eyelash curler by Precision Beauty, NYX Butter Lip Balm in Parfait and Cailyn Just Mineral eye polish in Orchid.  Rounding out my order were deluxe samples of BWC Facial Cleanser with a 3% AHA complex, and Tarte- Lights, Camera Lashes 4 in 1 mascara in black.  I found pricing on all items except the Tarte mascara, with a value of $26.  The eye shadow alone was $15.  I am rarely disappointed with my monthly glam bags.

The Cailyn Just Mineral Eye Polish in Orchid is a pale pinky gold color that is shimmery. This will make a great highlighter color.  The NYX Butter Lip Balm in Parfait is a natural pink tone for when you just want a little lip color.  Plus you don’t need a mirror to reapply since it’s a balm.

This month’s bag was definitely a winner.  In the past, whatever I didn’t want (which usually isn’t much) I send to my 18 year old niece.  Her mother died 12 years ago, so I send her a fun care package every few months.

Ipsy October 2014 Beauty Candy Glam Bag Review

OMG! I think this is my favorite bag yet!  The Nicole by OPI nail polish is to die for.  It is a super cool dark cherry red color.  The VolumEyes mascara by Model Co. is awesome.  I’ve already used it twice since I got my bag on Oct. 17th. It’s a blackish gray, that really brings out my blue eyes. Of course I poked myself in the eye this morning, being in a hurry as always. I think I’ll save this mascara for the weekend.  The name says volume, but I got amazing length as well.  I also got Epice Purifying Exfoliant which I’m anxious to try. My bag also included Rose Berry Figs and Rouge hand cream.  It smells like a delicious fruit tart. I don’t know if I want to eat it or just put it on my hands.

Last but not least I got some lip gloss by Starlooks in Guilty Pleasure, a soft rosy color that smells like candy.  This was a nice way to end my lousy week.  The teal quilted cosmetic bag was the icing on the cake.   Enjoy!  ipsy.com, you are the bomb!

Sept. 2014 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Yippee! I got my September Ipsy glam bag today.  Lots of good stuff.  The cosmetic bag is a pewter colored bag with silver studs.  The five items I received are as follows:  Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair deep conditioning mask for hair.  I can’t wait to try this, as I color my hair and need a deep conditioner. Leeanni Eco 3 in 1 Revolution Light, a toner, serum and moisturizer combined.  Sounds like this will save me some time in the morning. Pacifica Natural Minerals eyeliner pencil in brown. Hikari lipstick in Cabernet, which is a dark pink, matte lipstick. Last, but certainly not least is a Crown Crease/Shadow brush.  This is the third eye make-up brush I’ve gotten from Ipsy.  I love the fact the brush is a dual brush.  The bristles are very soft, and the brush is well made.

I wasn’t real crazy about the lipstick, as the color was a bit too bright for me. I wish I had a purse that looked like the cosmetic bag for this month.  I’m such a little kid waiting for my bag each month.  I knew it was coming today, and had my hubby throw the pink package upstairs to me after he got the mail.  He asked me how I knew it came today, and I told him I saw the fuchsia package as he was walking up the driveway. I will most likely give the lipstick to my niece.  She loves getting packages from her aunty, because she knows she’s getting some great hair, make up and skin care products.
