October Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

First off, I want to say that I know I’m a couple of days late with this so I want to apologize, I’ve been crazy busy. But anyway, I received my October Glam Bag from Ipsy the other day and I wanted to go through it with you guys. The theme for this month is Ipsy Spellbound. It’s about embracing everything bewitching and what this time of year brings, I love this time of year so I think this is a great theme. Something I don’t often talk about is the little cards that come in the bags, they usually have the hashtag for the month and explain what the theme is. This one in particular says In my defense the moon was full and I was left unsupervised. I think that it’s hilarious and completely accurate. Moving on to the bag itself, it’s red with a lace overlay and a little black bat as the zipper. It’s adorable and is perfect for Halloween without being overkill.

OGB1

The first thing in this month’s bag is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. You guys know how much I love First Aid Beauty, so I was excited when I saw this. I don’t have particularly dry skin but this time of year with the cold I do find myself moisturizing more, especially as the day goes on, so I think I’ll get a lot of use out of this.

OGB2

Next we have the Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics eyeshadow in Bronzed. My only previous experience with Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics was one of their blushes, which I loved, so I was interested to see what their eyeshadows would be like. I can only describe this color as a dirty gold. I haven’t worn it yet, but I have swatched it and it’s quite pretty. It has a nice sparkle to it, it’s very pigmented and it’s buildable. All good things and I can’t wait to wear it.

OGB4

The next product is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion. I always say that subscribing to Ipsy was the best thing for my eyeliner collection but it’s true and I’m not complaining about it. I wore this the other day and I bloody love it, it glides on so smooth, doesn’t smudge and it truly lasts all day. Definitely recommend it and it comes in a bunch of different and fun colors.

OGB3

Second to last we have a product that I already love and brand that I have quickly come to love and it’s the MDMflow Liquid Matte Lipstick in Retro. I love a liquid lipstick, most days that’s what I go for so I was intrigued when I saw this in the bag. I’ve honestly fallen in love with it, I will post a picture of myself wearing it, but I did forget the other day. Besides the color being lovely, the formulation as well as the staying power are amazing. I’ll for sure be purchasing other MDMflow lipsticks and I highly recommend them, great brand.

OGB5

OGB6

And lastly, we have a Pretty Woman NYC nail polish in Wine With Ice, Garçon. I’m wearing now and it’s so pretty. It’s a deep wine color and if you wrapped up fall in a bag and put a bow on it, it would look like this nail polish. Some of the things I love about the Pretty Woman nail polishes is they’re long lasting, quick drying and high shine. If you’re looking for a good nail polish, check them out.

OGB7

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your October Glam Bag let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get in your bag.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

September Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my September Glam Bag from Ipsy and wanted to go through it with you guys today. This month’s theme is Ipsy Boss. I think it’s a great theme, it’s all about empowerment and being the strongest and most fierce version of yourself. I really like the bag, it’s black and studded, it has a gold zipper and the material on the inside is a bluey purple color.

SGB1

The first thing is two sheet masks and they’re the Beauty Planner masks from Manefit.  The first is Mugwort, Astringent and Pore Care which is supposed to help with clearing your skin and moisturizing. The other is Lily, Whitening and Brightening which is meant to hydrate your skin. I love sheet masks, so I’m excited to try these.

SGB2

The second product we have is the Luxie Beauty 207 Medium Angled Shading Brush. Not only is this brush really soft, but it’s aesthetically pleasing and will look nice with my other brushes. I’ve said this before, but I strongly believe that you can never have too many brushes.

SGB3

Next is the Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey. This blush duo is honestly so pretty, and has a really nice shimmer and shine to it. I haven’t worn them together yet, but I did want to test it this morning so I’m wearing the lighter color as a highlighter and I like it a lot. Definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a good blush.

SGB4

The second to last item is the ColourPop Lippie Stix in the color Glam Bag. I love ColourPop, their lipsticks are incredible and I cannot wait to wear this. It’s matte and I’m all about matte lips right now and I think this is a great color.

SGB5

SGB6

And lastly we have a nail polish. The Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect nail lacquer in the shade Deception. I think the color is great, it’s not quite a gun metal gray, I would say it’s a shade lighter. But I love gray nail polish, especially this time of year.

SGB7

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your September Glam Bag let me know and if not I’d love to know what you got in your bag.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

August Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my August Glam Bag from Ipsy and wanted to share it with you today. The theme for this month is Ipsy Vibes. Good vibes only, peace and love type of thing, which I absolutely love. They had horoscopes on their website this month and I thought it was great. This month there were three different bags given out and the one I got is actually the one that I wanted, it has what will now be my new motto,  Peace, Love and Lipstick and I love the colors.

AGGB1

So the first product is the Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour Brush. I love the Firma brushes, I have the 102 Blush Brush and I love it, use it all the time. These brushes are incredibly soft and I love the color scheme. I firmly believe that you can never have too many brushes, so I was excited to see this. And definitely check out Firma if you’re looking for brushes.

AGGB2

Next we have the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with red clay. I honestly love First Aid Beauty, their Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer is one of my favorite products, it’s done wonders for my skin. So I’m really excited to try this cleanser.

AGGB3

Moving on we have the YADAH Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in the shade Light Beige. Let me tell you about this, I’m actually wearing it today and I think it’s got to be one of the best products I’ve used. I have this horribly annoying stress break out on my chin and I figured this would be the perfect time to see what this can really do and I’m honestly so impressed. It’s light to medium coverage, semi matte and it’s buildable, all things I really appreciate. And it’s SPF 34, which is a slightly weird number for an SPF, but nonetheless. Although I will warn you, I went on their website to check out other products and because they are a Korean brand the whole website is in Korean, which is not a language I speak, so it’s a little difficult to navigate.

AGGB4

The second to last product is from the Balm and it’s the Balm Voyage Vol. 2 eyeshadow in Kuwakaribisha. This eyeshadow is a shimmery pale peachy color, highly pigmented and really pretty. Would make a great highlight under the brow or in the inner corner of the eye.

AGGB5

And the last product is the Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner. You guys know how much I love trying new eyeliner so I was excited to see this and I’m excited to try it.

AGGB6

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your August Glam Bag let me know and if not I’d love to know what you got in your bag.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

July favorites

Hi everyone,

As it is the last week of July I thought it would be a good time to talk about my favorites and what I’ve been loving this month. Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my July Glam Bag, and I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first favorite is the bag itself, I don’t think they could’ve chosen a more adorable mascot than Gudetama and I love that the bag has a 360 design.

JLGB2

JLGB3

Next up we have the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. I have loved this since the minute I put it on and it’s become an important part of my nightly routine. It’s light, smells good and my face feels so good. I have since ordered a full size version of this. Definitely recommend it.

JLGB4

My next beauty favorite is the Ciate London Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid liner in Black. Like I mentioned before I really like Ciate London, I think they’re a great brand with great products. Since joining Ipsy my collection of eyeliner has grown and I love it. This one goes on smooth and it’s long lasting. It’s also double ended so one end is the pencil and the other end is a smudging and blending brush.

JLGB5

My last Glam Bag favorite is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea deep dive cleansing gel. I’ve been using this to take off my makeup and cleanse my face and I love it. The whole Rainforest of the Sea collection is brilliant and if you want a good cleansing product I recommend this. Like the Caudalie moisturizer, I’ve ordered a full size of this.

JLGB9

And my last beauty favorite is the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Color Me Confident. LOC stands for Love Of Color and it’s a Birchbox brand. My mom is subscribed to Birchbox and she told me about this brand so I ordered one of these lipsticks just to try out and I really like it. This particular one is a cranberry red shade, which is usually the red I wear and I quite like it. I always love a matte lipstick, this one is highly pigmented and will last you all day without feeling like you’re wearing a matte lipstick because they can leave you with a heavy feeling. I definitely recommend it.

JLF1

JLF2

Next I have a book favorite and that’s Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. I mentioned this book in my summer reading list post and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below as well. But this book is about the African American women who were part of some of NASA’s biggest successes. I have loved every bit of this book so far, being the huge history nerd I am I’m so intrigued by this and I’m almost finished with it. It has been turned into a movie with the same name, and I wanted to wait until I’d read the book to see the movie but everyone has told me how great it was, so I can’t wait to watch it.

My next favorite is the Royal International Air Tattoo, or RIAT and it’s an international airshow, the world’s largest, held every year in England. This is an airshow that I’ve always wanted to go to and hopefully within the next few years I will, but I’ve been watching videos of it on YouTube and I think it’s really cool to see how many aircraft show up and how many countries take part.

My last couple of favorites are music related and the first is the song Grand Illusion from Barry Gibb’s 2016 album In The Now. The album is full of great songs, but Grand Illusion is definitely my favorite. I’ve loved Barry Gibb forever, I love the Bee Gees and I was happy to see that he had released another album. I’ve said this before but I honestly love to sing with Barry Gibb.

Next up we have the song Shame by Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams. I’ve thought this was a great song since it came out and it popped up recently when I put my phone on shuffle. This was the first song the two worked on after they resolved their issues and fixed their friendship and that’s what the song is about. The video is kind of ridiculous, but in a good way and I love it.

And my last favorite is Face To Face by Gary Barlow and Elton John. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love Elton John and I love that he and Gary did this song. You can tell that this song is special and I think the meaning behind it is really sweet. Not a lot of people stuck by Gary when he went through his rough patch, but Elton did and this was his way of saying thank you. It’s a brilliant song and I 100% recommend looking it up on YouTube, just like the other songs I mentioned, if you haven’t heard them.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not let me know what you loved this month.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).

July Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my July Glam Bag from Ipsy and thought today would be the perfect day to go over it. This month’s theme is Ipsy Over Easy, basically lazy Sunday vibes. I have to say that this month’s bag may be the most adorable they’ve done.

JLGB1

I don’t normally talk in depth about the bags themselves, but this one is too cute not to. The mascot for Ipsy Over Easy is an incredibly chill egg named Gudetama. I think this is a great concept and applaud them for making the bag design 360, it’s adorable.

JLGB2

JLGB3

Moving on to actual products, the first is Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. I actually used this last night and I’m a big fan. It smells amazing, it really sinks into your skin and it’s light. All things I appreciate.

JLGB4

The second product is the Ciate London Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid liner in Black. I really like Ciate London as a brand. I mostly buy their nail polishes, which are amazing if you’re looking for a new polish brand, but I’ve only ever heard good things about the rest of their products. What I like about the eyeliner is that it’s double ended. One side is the pencil and the other side is a smudging/blending brush.

JLGB5

Next we have Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold blush. This blush is really pretty, it has ginger, lychee, mangosteen, and chamomile extracts that help give radiance and hydration. Color wise it’s a light pink with a gold shimmer and I can’t wait to wear it.

JLGB6

The second to last product is Winky Lux Double Matte Whip in Angel Food. Essentially a gorgeous nude. You guys know how much I love matte lipsticks, so I’m excited by this.

JLGB7

JLGB8

And lastly we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea deep dive cleansing gel. Tarte is one of my all time favorite brands and I think their Rainforest of the Sea is brilliant. This product in particular is for taking off your makeup and cleansing your face. I’m almost out of my current cleanser, so this is a product I will be trying within the next couple of days.

JLGB9

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your July Glam Bag let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get in your bag.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

June Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

I got my June Glam Bag from Ipsy yesterday and I thought today would be the perfect day to go over it. This month’s theme is Ipsy Volume Up. It’s all about being yourself and not being afraid to speak up. I think the bag is adorable, it’s the perfect size to stick in your handbag if you are looking for a smaller makeup bag or pencil case, etc. It has a set of lips on it and it’s perfect for the theme.

JNGB1

So the first product I’m going to talk about is a couple of facemasks from BioRepublic Skincare. I got two sheet masks, one is a green tea detox with green tea extract and vitamin E. It’s supposed to boost anti-oxidants and leave you with clean, supple and refined skin. The other is an aloe rescue with aloe vera juice and vitamin E. And it’s supposed to provide immediate hydration and leave you with healthy, revitalized and lush skin. This time of year people spend a lot of time in the sun and after a day in the sun this would be perfect. I love facemasks, so I’m excited to try these.

JNGB2

Next is a Luna by Luna eyeshadow in Jace. This is dusty peach color and it’s really pretty. I don’t typically wear a lot of colors like this, but I’m sure I can make it work.

JNGB3

The next product, from the Balm is the Balm Springs blush in the shade In Full Swing. This is a really light pinky blush and it’s perfect for summer. I can’t wait to wear it, the Balm blushes are great.

JNGB4

The second to last product is one of my favorites and it’s a NYX Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé in Plush. I love NYX, I think all of their products are great. This is a really pretty pink, I’ll probably use it just for lips, the fact that it’s whipped makes it nice to wear and to me it smells like vanilla frosting, which I love. I would definitely recommend anything NYX.

JNGB7

JNGB5

And the last product is a nail polish from Trust Fund Beauty and it’s in the shade Game Changer. I really like the Trust Fund Beauty nail polishes. The formulation is really nice and they have good staying power. I love the color of this one it’s bright and perfect for summer. I can’t wait to put it on my nails.

JNGB6

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your June Glam Bag let me know and if not let me know what you got in yours.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

May Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I received my May Glam Bag from Ipsy and figured today was the perfect day to talk about it. This month’s theme is Ipsy Summer Fridays. The theme really carries through. The bag is covered in ice cream and popsicles. It’s also plastic so that makes it perfect to take to the beach or the pool. When I pulled it out of the envelope it reminded me of how pool floaties smell which made me think of summer.

MYGB1

So the first product is Urban Decay Afterglow 8-hour powder highlighter in Sin. I’ve mentioned how much I love Urban Decay and this highlighter is amazing. It’s a gorgeous champagne shade and it did last most of the day, which I loved.

MYGB2

Next we have a Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense eyeshadow duo in Electric. When I opened this I was excited because I absolutely love these colors. I wore this on Saturday and really liked it. I used the rosey one as the base and put a little bit of the gold on top and after I blended it it was so pretty. It is really pigmented and I definitely recommend it.

MYGB3

Sticking with eyes, we have the Pixi by Petra Endless Silky eye pen in BlackNoir. Pixi is a brand I really like, their skincare is fantastic, but I hadn’t tried any of their makeup. Let me tell you, I will be going to their website and browsing through the makeup. Like I’ve said before, I’m always looking to try new eyeliner, doesn’t matter how many I have. And I really like this one. It was long lasting, it didn’t smudge, and it was incredibly smooth putting it on. It really lives up to it’s silky name.

MYGB4

Going on to lips, the next product is a Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key. I’m so in love with this liquid lipstick. Not only is the color fantastic, but it smells like cake batter. I mean, if it didn’t smell like cake I would still love it because it’s lightweight and doesn’t feel like it’s taking all of the moisture out of my lips. But the fact that it does makes it a million times more fun and I will definitely be purchasing more colors in the future.

MYGB5

And lastly, we have Beauty and Pin-Ups Fearless Hair Rescue Masque. I haven’t used this yet, but it smells really good. I love hair masks, thankfully my hair is really healthy and always has been, but being able to give it that extra love and softness is always nice. So I can’t wait to try this.

MYGB6

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your May Glam Bags let me know, and if not I’d love to know what you got in yours.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
