May Ipsy Glam Bag! 

My May Ipsy Glam Bag is here! Keep reading to see which products I received as well as a picture of the look I created using these products! 


Manna Kadar Bronzer/Highliter duo- I used the bronzer shade all over my lid and tapped the highlighter shade in the center 

It Cosmetics Superhero mascara- this mascara is really great for lengthening, but I had to use another mascara to give my lashes more volume.

Hikari Cream Pigment in Honey Dew- this is called a “cream pigment” but it is actually a pressed powder pigment. It is still a gorgeous rose gold shade and I used it as a highlighter! 

Benefit Gimme Brow brow mascara- I love this stuff! It is the only brow product I am wearing and it’s really good for natural makeup days.

My March Ipsy Glam Bag! 

I’m loving all the products in my March Ipsy Glam Bag + the bag this month is my favorite so far! Keep reading to see what I got and my review on the products. 

Ofra Cosmetics Peach blush: this is a gorgeous shade! It is a little too shimmery to use solely as a blush for me, but I love it as a highlight or shimmer shade for the center of the eyelid. 

City Color Photo Chic Dark Spot Corrector: I love the dark circle Corrector from Nyx and this one works just as well for me! It has a little bit more of a peachy tint so it corrects my dark circles really well. It does not crease on me and concealer still applies well on top of it. I can also wear this by itself if I don’t feel like putting on any heavy makeup. 

Chella Tweezers: First, I think the design of these tweezers is so cute! Aside from that, they are really good for getting out tiny stubborn hairs that grow outside the shape of my brows. Love them! 

Eyeko Fat Brow Liquid Liner: I was kind of thrown off by this product because I’ve never seen or used anything like it. Basically it is a felt tip eyeliner pen- for your brows! It is not super pigmented which is a good thing because it does not make my brows look like they are drawn on. The only thing I’m not crazy about is the shade because it has a slight greenish tint to it. But if I only use a little bit you cannot really tell. Overall, I like how unique and easy to use this product is! 

Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream moisturizer: Snail secretion in facial moisturizers is a Japanese beauty trend that is making its way to America. Snail secretion sounds gross to be putting on your skin, but it has amazing moisturizing and anti-aging benefits. I was super excited to receive this product in my Glam Bag this month because I have wanted to try this trend out for myself. I love how quickly this product absorbs into my skin without leaving a greasy residue. It leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth. It also smells really good, which I was not expecting. 

What’s In My February Ipsy Glam Bag?!

Keep reading to see what I received in my Glam Bag this month as well as a quick review on each product! 

Befine Food Skin Care gentle cleanser with sugar, mint, oats, and rice: Obviously I do not have much of an opinion on this product quite yet since skincare products require more than a first impression (in my opinion). I do like that it has a bunch of awesome natural ingredients in it though and it smells amazing! The texture is a thin gel consistency and seems very moisturizing and gentle. 

NYX Butter Lipstick shade Lifeguard: This is a beautiful blue-toned red shade! The pigmentation is amazing and it goes on very opaque. I have never tried a NYX lip product that I haven’t liked and this one is no exception! 

Winky Lux Diamond Powder in medium: I love this powder so much! It has a slight luminosity to it, hence the name, and I love using it to set my under eye concealer. It doesn’t crease on me and it really brightens up the area and makes my skin look flawless! It is a little bit powdery, but it the consistency is very smooth and blends out beautifully. 

Elizabeth Mott Whatup Beaches Matte Bronzer: I really like the shade and texture of this bronzer- it is not too cool, but not too warm. The only thing I don’t like is that the sample is way too small for me to even get a bronzer brush in the pan. So instead, I use it as a transition shade when I do my eyeshadow and I love the way it looks! 

Luxie 514 Blush Brush: This is the product that I was most excited for because I have never tried any Luxie Beauty products before and everyone raves about their brushes. This brush is a little too small for me to use as a blush brush, but I love it to contour with! The brush hairs are incredibly soft and not too densely packed so it applied product and blends it out flawlessly. It is perfect if you want to achieve a soft contoured look, but you can also build up the color as well.

My January Ipsy Glam Bag! 

Here’s a peek inside my January Ipsy bag! Keep reading for quick reviews on each product! 

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination shade medium: I really like the original Bye Bye Under Eye concealer and in my opinion, the Illumination one is pretty much the exact same thing. It has the same thick consistency, same full coverage, and blends the same as well. Both of the concealers also claim to be anti-aging and waterproof as well. I do really like this concealer, it just isn’t any different from the original one. 

Trust Fund Beauty “Lipgasm” Lipgloss in the shade Method to the Madness: This is a really nice lipgloss. I was expecting it to be a little more pigmented, but it is actually quite sheer and just gives a slight tint to the lips. It lasts a good amount of time, feels very moisturizing, and isn’t sticky. I do really like this product for what it is, but I most likely would not go out of my way to spend money on it. Also, it does have a really strong glue smell when applying, but it does go away quickly. 

Temptu Base Smooth & Matte Primer: I actually really like this primer! It feels really hydrating, but also does a pretty good job of keeping my face from looking like a greasy mess. I would call it more of a moisturizer for oily skin though, rather than a mattifying makeup primer. I still like it though and will continue to use up the sample! 

Manna Kadar Beauty blush in Paradise: This is a gorgeous shade, but for a blush it is extremely too pigmented and shimmery for my liking. I will probably use this more as an eyeshadow. It has fine gold shimmer, which I typically don’t mind, but since the product is so pigmented and powdery it is hard to blend and easy to go overboard. I am going to see how I can use it in an eye look, though because it is a gorgeous color! 

Clinique Take The Day Off makeup remover for lids, lashes, and lips: I have never tried this makeup remover before because I typically just use coconut oil, but it does work really well for taking off my eye makeup, even waterproof mascara. I find that I don’t have to tug too hard on my eyelids. I will use up the sample, but probably won’t purchase the real thing because coconut oil just breaks down the makeup so much quicker for me.

November Ipsy Glam Bag + Review 

I recently subscribed to Ipsy and received my first glam bag for the month of November! 

Keep reading to see what’s inside and what I thought of each product! 


Benefit Porefessional pore minimizing primer- this product is a cult favorite and I have never heard someone say they don’t love this product because it is just amazing! Love this primer and I definitely recommend this if you want something lightweight that will help minimize the appearance of larger pores. 

Skone Brow Wand (full size)- this is pretty much a dupe for the Anastasia Brow Definer. It has the exact same shape and has a spoolie on one end just like the Brow Definer. The only difference is that this one is not as stiff as the Anastasia one. I do really like this brow pencil though! It is the right shade (not too warm toned but not too cool toned either) and it pigmented enough to give you control on how heavily you want to fill in your brows. 

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner pen (black)- I love this eyeliner so much! It makes applying eyeliner so easy and quick! It is not as black as my Essence waterproof eyeliner pen, but I feel like the Eyeko one does not dry out as quickly. I think I will repurchase a full sized one when the sample runs out!

Hey Honey Goid Morning Honey Silk facial serum- I have only used this serum once and I can’t really give much of a detailed review since skincare products usually take a few uses to know how well you will like the product. I did like the way it felt on my skin, but I haven’t noticed a difference in just one use. I’m pretty sure it’s just meant to be hydrating  for all skin types and definitely feels nice. 

Laws & Co. B’Lighter in Peacher’s Daughter highlighting cream blush- this is the only product in the bag that I was not too thrilled with. I don’t really go for Cream blushes in the first place, and the “highlight” factor of the product is way WAY too glittery and just doesn’t look too flattering on the skin.
