I love looking forward to my monthly Ipsy Glam Bag and I feel like my picks keep getting better and better. I usually get my bag the first week of June but this one took a bit longer. It was worth it though because this was my favorite bag so far.
What’s In My Bag:
J. Cat Beauty – Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain (full size) ($6): Highly pigmented, hydrating, semi-matte lip stain. A delightfully creamy and lightweight stain for any occasion. Silky, smooth and packed with Vitamin E and plants extract, this stain is your go-to glam tool for sexy. Liptitude will last 24/7 and give you some seriousATTITUDE.
Smashbox Cosmetics – Photo Finish Foundation Primer (sample) (full size $36): Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, this best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish. This primer diffuses the light hitting your skin to blur out imperfections for an even, soft-focus look while also making your makeup last all day long.
BeFine – Cucumber Facial Mask (sample) (full size $25): Exactly what your skin craves, this Cucumber Cooling Mask revitalizes, repairs andrejuvenates the complexion. Cucumber Extract removes dead skin cells while soothing and tightening the skin. Pomegranate Extract, which is loaded with antioxidants, helps repair the skin and keeps it looking its youngest. Watermelon Extract reduces the break down of DNA in skin cells while keeping them hydrated.
tre’StiQue – Mini Shadow Crayon (sample) (full size $26): This amazing 12 hour eye shadow has customizable color that you can build from a subtle wash to intense vibrancy. Super blendable with a crease free, smooth finish.
NUXE – Gentle Exfoliating Gel (sample) (full size $26): This Gentle Exfoliating Gel is infused with Rose Petals that gently exfoliate and eliminate dead skin cells. The gel’s texture consists of gentle exfoliating grains to reveal refined skin. This scrub will leave your skin feeling soft, clear, and more radiant than ever. For sensitive and all skin types. Contains at least 91% natural ingredients including ground lychee stones and ground walnut shells. No parabens and hypoallergenic fragrance specifically developed for sensitive skin.
I really liked everything in my bag this month. The lip stain has a glossy effect to it, it’s very pigmented and lasts a really long time, but without taht rubbery feel to it that most long-wear lip products seem to have. The Mini Shadow Crayon is perfect for those days when you’re in a hurry or just don’t feel like spending a long time on your makeup. Swipe and blend and you’re done! I know everyone loves and raves over the Smashbox Primer and this is my first time trying out their products. I have to say that I was a little bit disappointed by this. I love primers and use a lot of them and this is my least favorite one. It doesn’t have that silicone feel that others do and I don’t think it did much to smooth over my pores, not like the other primers I use anyway. I didn’t hate this product but considering how expensive it is, I was disappointed. The Nuxe Rose Facial Scrub was my favorite product this month. I love scrubs but my face is sensitive so I need something gentle. This was perfect and the scent is so good. I’ve never tried a facial mask so I have nothing to compare it to, but I really like the way this left my face looking and feeling after. Another great Ipsy bag. Even though most of these were samples (except for the lip stain), the sample sizes are very decent and perfect for me since I like to try new products. It’s the perfect amount for me to decide if I want to buy the full sized product or not. If you’re interested in the Ipsy bag ($10 a month), you can use this code to sign up!
