In my blogging break around the holidays I missed my chance to blog my December IPSY Glam Bag. It however was the worst glam bag I got all year, so the truth is that I don’t think you guys missed anything. So, instead of starting the year with a negative post, I am fast-forwarding to my January bag which was wonderful!
I thought the bag itself was creative… it is jersey-knit material in bright colors that reminds me of retro gym clothes. It is fun and something I would keep in my gym bag permanently.
On to the products! Here is what I received:
GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE – Charcoal Wash Off Mask
Is there anyone out there who has been jones-ing for a good old-fashioned mud mask? I am so sick of the sheet mask trend. They all seem so slimy and unsettling to me… I am honestly not a fan! This mask is mud AND charcoal, which of course is all the rage these days. This mask is highly cleansing without drying your skin out. I am a fan! PURCHASE
BELLAPIERRE COSMETICS – StayPut Brow Gel in Cardamom
This is literally the best brow kit I have ever used. Disregard any previous posts where I said I liked a brow product, because this is by far my fav! I first have struggled finding a brow kit with my blonde hair – I feel like so many brow kits are far too dark for my complexion and I end up with eyebrows that don’t match the rest of me. Second, the applicator is hidden in the tip of this bottle so it is easy to use and isn’t getting gunk in the bottom of your makeup bag. I have been so much happier with my brows since I started using it! PURCHASE!
SO SUSAN – Liquid Matte in Pumpkin
IPSY- why do you keep sending me fugly orange kip glosses? Are they in? I seriously can’t see this shade working on any skin tone. HARD PASS. Gross.
VASANTI COSMETICS – Kajal Waterline Eyeliner in Intense Black
This is just your run of the mill eyeliner… I found nothing special about it. It’s not that I dislike it, it works good but is nothing different than any drugstore liner you have tried. PASS.
THEBALM COSMETICS – Mary-Lou Manizer
This hi-lighter is gorgeous! It is very bright, so I use it sparingly for a nice glow where needed. I also like it as an eye-shadow. I like how it goes on – very shimmery but not sparkly, if that makes sense at all 🙂 PURCHASE
Total Glam Bag Score: 3/5
Not my best bag ever, but it was still worth the $10!!
What did the rest of you glammers get? I would love to hear!
