I have fallen behind posting these... Ok I think I have just neglected my blog all year... It's not that I haven't had anything to post, it's just I  haven't gotten around to it... :p Anyways... Since soon I will be getting a sneak peak of my entire September Bag, I might as well post this past month's bag. :p I know this month so far we are either getting a sample of the Glam Glow Tinglemud Mask or Voodoo Love Spells.

Thoughts on Bag: My bag was ok this month. The eyeliner applies nice and I will probably use it for a waterline eyeliner. I'm not sure if I like the red shade of lip gloss on me. It's a nice lip gloss though. I have yet to try the nail polish but I'm sure I will like it. I've been using the night time moisturizer every night since I got it. I got the daily moisturizer sample in one of my past month's ipsy bags. I already went through both samples. :p I don't know about th shampoo though... I've never tried one of those before. My hair get's oily, so I  just wash my hair. I'm not sure if I can use the dry shampoo with my colored hair. 

Here are the other items that were featured this month:

Thoughts on bag: I love my lip balm. It's moisutrizing and i use it with some of my matte lipsticks to give them a more glossy finish. I'm hoping i like the moisturizer and that it doesn't effect my picky sensitive skin because i really need to find a good one since my skin is also dry. I probably won't ever use the bronze shadow since i already have plenty of those. I'm on the fence of the liner because i mainly wear black liner. I have another one of the sheer glo things from a past bag and yet to even use that one. There was a few misses but that lip balm is awesome!!

This looks totally ugly on fair skin...


I don't know who would look good in this color. It looks like i put concealer on my lips..


This will never be worn by me.. ick...


Price of Bag: $10
Where to Subscribe: Ipsy
Value of Bag: $37.99
Thoughts on Bag: The only item I will be using in this whole bag is the mascara. It's one of my top 5 mascaras. The lip balm was totally ugly and looked like i had applied concealer on my lips. It was not attractive at all. I remember showing my hubby and he gave me a "what the heck" is on your lips look. lol I might try out the cleanser but my face is really picky with cleansers and also many of them dry out my already very dry skin. The eyeshadow was some dull sheer bronze shade. That shade is totally not worth it's price. I also don't use hair products, so the spray won't be used either. I decided im just going to put all my hair products in a basket in the guest bathroom when we get a house. Maybe then if someone stays/comes over and needs a hair product to use i will have plenty. :p I could though go the route of others and just sell them on ebay. I have at least 30 hair samples from my ipsy bags that have never been used.

Thoughts on Bag: There was only 1 item different from my first bag and that was the eyeliner. I wasn't too thrilled about this month's bag. I love the purple liner which was definitely the highlight of this bag. I'm not sure though if I see myself using it though.. I might use it for the waterline or to use under an eyeshadow on my lower lashline. The highlighter is ok but pretty sheer. I hate the cream shadow. I think the color is just ugly and not a good color for my porcelain complexion. I won't use the hairspray. Hairspray i so hard to get out of my fine hair that tangles easily and for the most part I wear my hair up year round because  of the weather. I also work in the stock room at my job so i always have my hair up for that too. I don't really use hair products when i curl/straighten my hair except a spray used to prevent damaging my hair from the heat of curling irons/straighteners. Also I have used argon oil in my hair and it made my hair super oily (i have natural oily hair).

I found this shade to be a little too dark and muddy for my porcelain complexion.. The swatch is a little washed out from the flash.

Thoughts on Bag: This bag was a miss for me. I won't use the hairspray and the cream shadow is an ugly muddy brown color. The highlighter is an ok shade. I have worn in a couple times and it's really sheer but it's ok I guess. :p I love the eyeliner!! This is the only  item i see myself using. It has good pigmentation, lasts all day without smudging or fading, and also a bonus that it dries quickly so it doesn't irritate my eyes. I have used this liner a handful of times and i think it's pretty awesome. It reminds me of the urban decay 24/7 liquid liners (which are amazing!!). The lip shade is a little darker then i like but it might be a shade i can use for halloween.

Thoughts on Bag: I adore my nail polish. I adore it so much i've been looking for the other 3 shades but can't seem to find the collection anwhere. :( My lipstick is in a shade i get periodically in my ipsy bags, so it will probably just be put in my purse when i need some color added to my lips when im out somewhere. I love the colors of the eye shadow palette, but yet to see how they will work with my fair skintone. They look like the perfect shade for like an arabian eye look. Makes me think of Aladdin. I tried the body butter and it wasn't very moisturizing. I also didn't care for the scent. This bag was a toss up for me. The definite stand out product was the nail polish. :)

These were the other products featured in this month's bag. 

 

Ipsy - Glam Bag February 2014: The Look of Love

|
By cristalena56 · February 20, 2014

Every Ipsy bag is shipped in a shiny pink envelope.

This month's theme is fitting for the month of valentine's day, "The Look of Love".

There's a postcard in every bag showing what brands were featured in that month's bag. Some of the brands this month included Zoya, Pop Beauty, City Color, Phyto, NuMe, and Mally.

The bag part of every "Glam Bag" is a makeup bag. Every month is a different one fitting the theme of that month's bag. 

This is how i found the items in the bag. :)

Product: City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon
Description: Available in 4 shades, this silky-smooth, highly pigmented matte blush compliments and blends evenly with your skin's natural glow. Extremely buildable to create a subtle or dramatic look. Ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Fresh Melon, Blackberry, Dragonfruit, or Toasted Coconut. 
Size: Full Size (8.9 grams)
Where to Buy: City Color Beauty
My Thoughts: Its super pigmented and a little goes a long way. To some this color might look scary at first but blends on smoothly giving your cheeks a nice coralish tint to the cheeks. This is a nice color for the summer month's. I live in phoenix, so it seems like summer almost all year round. :) This product is super amazing being how cheap it is to buy. I highly recommend this. I've been wearing it everyday since I received my bag last week. :)

Size: Full Size (0.14 oz)
Where to BuyTini Beauty
My Thoughts: I was kind of on the fence with the color, since gold's don't always look the best on me. Also, I'm not really a fan of cream shadows. They can be hard to work with and crease easily. This shade is super pigmented, and applied easily with the felt applicator. It was very opaque. I however have to say to my fellow sensitive eye gals(guys) this stung my eye a lot. However, when I applied a powder shadow over, the stinging subsided. I'm not sure for the wear, since I only had it on for a short time. I was just testing a eye look out using it.
Value: $18.00
Promo: 50% off $12+ purchase at tinibeauty.com and free nail polish with code: IPSYLOVE




Product: Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini in Peony Petal
Description: This plumping pout perfector combines the high-shine of a lacquered gloss with the long wear of a stain and is packed full of lip-plumping peptides and avocado and jojoba oils. Lightweight, creamy texture immediately merges with lips & delivers intense glossy color for an extremely long-lasting finish! ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Peony Petal or Fuschia Freesia
Size: 4 grams (Full Size 8 grams)
Where to BuyPop Beauty or Ulta
My Thoughts: I thought this was a nice everyday shade. This gave my lips a rasberry pink tint to it. This doesn't have the stickyness like a lot of other lip glosses have. Nor does it stain the lips like a lip stain. It applied easily with the felt tip wand. I also like how flat the packaging is and can be easily slipped into your pocket of jeans or a pocket in your purse. I didn't notice any plumping, so maybe mine was a dud in that department. :p I noticed on the ipsy website people complaining of an odor, but mine had no odor that i'm aware of.

I didn't realize the product's name didn't show up in my picture..

With a special blend of powerful ingredients, the restorative and rejuvenating effects of the Intense Renewal Mask will leave hair feeling replenished, and alive. 
Size: 20 mL (Full Size 177 mL)
Where to Buy: NuMe
My Thoughts: I don't usually use the hair products sent to me, so i'm not sure about this product. Since I work in a stock room, I usually brush my hair and then clip it or put in a ponytail. The only hair products i really use is shampoo and conditioner. I have oily hair, and most hair products make my hair even oilier. If I do test this out, I will add a review at a later date.

Size: Full Size 0.5 oz
Where to Buy: Zoya
My Thoughts: I love zoya polishes. They are long lasting and for the most part they apply smoothly. This one applied smoothly and dried quickly. It was opaque with one coat but i like to do at least 2 like shown above in my swatch picture. I'm not a big fan of earthy muted colors. This was a earthy plum color. Its from zoya's new Natural Collection. It might not be a color i would be reaching for, but will use when im feeling like a more muted manicure then my usual colorful or glittery manicures. :p

Thoughts on Bag: The tinted balm you need chapstick first since its on the drying side. I don't see myself using the leave in conditioner since I have oily hair. I look forward to trying out the moisturizer. It says its gentle enough for sensitive skin (which i have) and my face has been drier lately. The scrub doesn't have the greatest smell but i'll probably use it as a foot scrub. I like the color of the smooth shadow but don't know if i will wear it since most warm colors don't look good on me.
