I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for about 5 months now, and it’s easily my favourite subscription box! This month’s bag seemed to be a big hit with most people after last month’s skincare-oriented bag which didn’t seem to take well. I’m loving every aspect of this month’s bag, and I highly suggest Ipsy if you’re looking for a cheap and fun way to get your monthly beauty fix!
Easily my favourite so far! This bag was designed by Rebecca Minkoff, a designer whom I love! The print is an edgy hawaiian one which Minkoff has been using in her insanely beautiful collection this season. (I’m drooling over this Marlowe Mini in the same print with an exposed zip. Gorgeous.) They put the zip on this bag a little bit wonky, but the bag itself is just beautiful.
Overall a great bag this month, extremely happy with the balance of product types as I’m a makeup gal’ primarily but do love receiving skincare and and haircare products every once in a while. This bag seems super cohesive and I could easily use all of these in one look.
I’ve used this twice so far and like it quite a lot! It doesn’t lather, which I don’t mind, and does an awesome job at getting rid of stubborn makeup, the smell is great, like a creamsicle! As with most cleansers, I do have to use a moisturizer straight afterwards as it’s a bit drying, but overall this is really good, and you get a lot of it!
I was excited to get a product for wavy hair, as I’ve been searching for a new texturizer. 😀 This works quite well at giving me waves, although not as well as others I’ve tried, and smells SO beachy and summery, which is great for me because I live really close to the beach so I could throw it in my bag and spray it in after swimming in the ocean! It does get a bit too hard/sticky for my liking, and my hair is difficult to brush through after using it, but otherwise it’s good.
In. Love. I’m quite the NYX fangirl, but for some reason hadn’t picked up their Butter Glosses yet. This is such an insanely pretty colour which suits me really well, and it smells great. It’s non-sticky, not overly shiny, and feels nice and moisturizing on the lips. It doesn’t last forever though, I’d say you have to reapply every 2-3 hours.
This is a decent mascara overall. I like the dryer formula (I’m not a fan of super wet mascaras) and it does a pretty good job of separating and lengthening my lashes which I like, however it doesn’t add much curl and isn’t anything special compared to other mascaras you can get. I also wish they would have used a waterproof mascara since this bag seemed extra beachy, but oh well! I like it and I’ll use it up, but I wouldn’t pay the $15 price tag for it.
I’m really enjoying this product! It’s very pigmented and the shimmer definitely shows up on the eyes well. It gets dry and cracks a little bit after about 4-5 hours of wear, and I’m not digging the brush. It’s plastic and I can’t go over the line I’ve made without the brush wiping off what I’ve done before, almost like a dry erase marker, haha! However it’s stayed on quite well and the colour makes it one of my favourite Ipsy products so far! It’s only $4.99 and I will definitely be picking up a lot more of these, the annoying brush is worth it.
Overall I’d give this month’s Glambag 4/5 stars. The products are great and I’ll be using up all of them, the bag itself is the most stylish yet, and I’m excited to try out next month’s bag!
