What a Wonderful Monday it was. I had the day off today so I took my daughter to the beach for most of the day to beat the heat, a balmy 33 degrees on this island. I also cleaned my car so I feel like I have got it together now. I love accomplishing things on that to-do list. After that miss B and I went into town to the local bakery to get some late lunch and check the mail, it has finally arrived! My first Ipsy glam bag is here! We were so excited and barely made it home before tearing into the bag. (If you have never heard of Ipsy GlamBags or want to know more click here please)
About a month ago Glen, My wonderful and supportive boyfriend, wanted to do something nice for me. I told him about the Ipsy glam bags and how much I wanted to try it. So he signed me up. He is so sweet. He knows how much I love makeup and beauty products and I am so grateful for his love and understanding. He treats me like a queen.
So Miss B and I get out of the post office and the two of us wanted to see inside the package so bad.We didn’t make it back home before it was opened. The package was so pretty in a shiny pink foil. Miss B tried to claim the entire thing for herself but did not succeed. We were not disappointed. The Ipsy Bag was definitely worth it. We opened it to find an adorable black and white checked makeup bag with a pink zipper so pretty and useful.(what woman doesn’t need more bags) then we looked inside..
At first glance there was a face wash, hair blow out spray, lip gloss, nail polish,and an eyeliner. Good haul so far for 15$. When we got home a finally got a better look inside the bag. So lets begin to go through it.
LATHER. Ultra Mild Face Wash. I received a 1 oz bottle which is a good trial size of it I figure there is enough in the bottle for 7 to 10 days which is almost enough time to figure out if your skin is going to like the product or not. The full size version of the face wash is $19 for 6 oz. so I used this when I washed my face after supper tonight. and it was nice. It smelled good but not strong. It foamed up very easily. So far so good I seemed to like it but I needed moisturizer immediately afterwards but that is normal part of my routine anyways. I have dry/combination skin type. It left my face feeling very soft afterwards not over dry and not greasy at all.
HIKARI Lip Gloss. This lip gloss came in the color Merlot. a very deep intense mauve. It is a little dark for my taste. I really like it though. it is a high pigment gloss but it is very moisturizing. and super long lasting i had it on hour a few hours today and didn’t feel like i need to reapply. I’m happy with this lip gloss and would probably buy more in different colors. This came as a full size lip gloss worth about $13.
Trust Fund Beauty. Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted. This was almost a full size version of the beautiful lilac purple color.This is the perfect Indian summer color which is going to get well used as I feel like that’s what we are going to get this year is lots of nice weather into October. This color will be used. I have only painted one nail so far but it looks great. I took a couple extra minutes to dry after the second coat but then it dried very hard and with lots of shine. The full size version costs about $15.
Starlooks Pro Luxe Longwear Eyeliner. It is 3/4 of the full size version. The full size version cost $19. This was a really easy to use eyeliner. I love the felt tip, it makes precision a breeze. I am not very good with eyeliner. but i can see myself using this one a lot. I am very excited about finding this in my Ipsy bag.
Briogeo Volumizing Blow Dry Spray. 1 oz bottle came, 5 oz bottle costs $18 us. Vegan product. 98% Natural. smalls like sweet lemons. Claims to kick start growth and gives the look of fuller thicker hair. It worked well as a blow out spray. It lifted my hair and kept my hair curled for longer than usual.
Well I am so happy with my Ipsy GlamBag. I highly recommend this subscription bag. I am already excitedly awaiting my next one.
