January Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

I must say that my Ipsy Glam Bag is bar far the best thing that I receive in the mail each month. It is always so fun to get some new makeup items to try out in my arsenal!

Nourish Organic: Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion- 
Nourish Organic's Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion provides continuous moisture throughout the day while replenishing essential skin nutrients. The advanced, non-greasy formula is also rich in vitamins and antioxidants to boost skin's defenses and leave skin healthier and younger-looking every day. 100% Natural. USDA-Certified Organic. Fragrance-Free. Alcohol-Free. Ultra gentle for sensitive skin.

* Moroccan Argan Oil intensely hydrates and replenishes skin
* Rosewater evens out skin tone and smoothes texture
* Shea Butter locks in moisture and improves skin's elasticity.

Size: 0.5 oz

The Verdict- This is great feeling lotion. I love lotions that aren't oily and don't leave a greasy feel behind. If it is greasy then I don't want it. I also like that it is organic and fragrance and alcohol free so it will not irritate my sensitive skin!

Elizabeth Mott: Smooth Shadow- (in pearl)
The ultimate gel pencil that’s smooth like butter and packed with deliciously creamy colors. These velvety pencils glide on with ease, and contain just enough shimmer. They’re also waterproof and perfect to wear all day and night, a must have for all color lovers! Use a cosmetics sharpener for best results.

Size: 0.7 g

The Verdict- I am obsessed with this. It is my FAVORITE thing that I got in this glam bag. They aren't kidding when they say that it perfect to wear all night and day. I tested it on my hand and I washed them multiple times and slept and the next morning it was still there and looking shimmery and wonderful. The color it gorgeous as well. This is something that I will be purchasing after t runs out!

Proactiv+: Mark Fading Pads-
The Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads are a convenient, single-use, no-rinse peel pad that can instantly boost your skin’s glow and radiance. The pads help remove dead skin cells to unclog pores and remove dull layers to reveal newer, smoother, more even toned skin. With just a few quick swipes you can help fade away post acne dark marks, reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores.

4 separately packaged pads.

The Verdict- I am excited to try these. When I was younger I used Proactiv even though I never had acne because I loved the clean feeling that it gave me. It always worked great so I am sure that these will work wonderfully too. I have not had any blemishes to try them on yet but when I get one you can bet your bottom dollar that I am pulling on of these suckers out and using it right away!

Briogeo: Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask-

Repair and treat dry, damaged and breaking hair with Don't Despair, Repair!™ deep conditioning mask. Fortified with ultra-hydrating avocado, sweet almond & argan oils, strengthening keratin protein, power-conditioning rosehip oil, soothing aloe, and super hair-essential vitamins B5, D, A, E and biotin. This unique complex of targeted ingredients helps increase hair elasticity and moisture to prevent breakage, promotes healthy shine and luster, and replenishes strength.

Size: 1.0 oz

The Verdict- This could not have come at a better time! I have recently become addicted to my Hot Tools Deep Waver so my hair has been getting more abuse than it is used to. I have been talking about how I need a deep conditioning treatment so badly, WELL HERE IT IS! I am planning to use to next weekend because this weekend was so busy. I will update with how it goes =)

Mica Beauty: Tinted Lip Balm- (in Fiesta)
MicaBeauty's 24 hour Tinted Lip Balm conditions your lips without smudge while delivering sophisticated finish. For a sheer wash of color, one swipe is all you need. For a bolder pout, simply apply another swipe and this lip balm will create lips every woman covets. Kiss-proof and smudge-proof!

Size: 2.5 g

The Verdict- This feels nice on my lips. I like the product overall but I am not a fan of lip products in pots because it just makes application less convenient. Am I right?! Also, the color isn't great on me. I don't hate it though!

  1. I really loved the tinted lip balm but I agree on the pots being it harder to apply. I can't wait to hear how you like the hair mask. I love conditioning treatments especially since my hair is so long it really needs it.

  6. Hi, I'm following you on GFC, Pinterest, G+ and Blog Lovin'. It's always interesting when other people test drive products. My daughter does this too, with make- up and I pick up lots of hints.

  7. Dude I have been wondering how Proactiv plus worked! I am skeptical but who knows until you try.

  8. I love ipsy! For the March 2014 Glam Bag I received the bareminerals lipstick, the bora bora eyeshadow quad, the chella blue eye liner, and the vita liberata luxury tan. I absolutely love getting new makeup every month!
