Just when I think of giving up on Ipsy, the Beauty Gods bestow upon me the best Glam Bag I’ve ever received.
November’s Ipsy them was Girl Meets Glitter. The bag itself leaves much to be desired, but the contents more than make up for it.
Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Hairspray
This hairspray smells great, and does not make your hair sticky to the touch. I’m not sure how well it will hold a curl, but it seems to be okay if you need to slick down your ponytail, or flyaways. I don’t purchase hairspray very often, but I would definitely buy this one.
SeaRX Micro-Dermabrasion Face & Body Scrub
Most times, I feel like if I’ve tried one micro-dermabrasion scrub, I’ve tried them all. The only variation I ever notice is scent. This scrub is finely grained with a light citrus scent. I did not notice much that was special about this scrub, so I could take it or leave it.
Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain
Although Wet n Wild is a cheap drugstore brand, they do have a select few products that are awesome, and their Balm Stain is one of those products. I have a couple of these stains in my collection, and they are pigmented and long lasting. If you like lip color, but don’t like leaving lipstick rings on your cup, this stain is for you.
Elizabeth Mott You’re So Fine Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
I have a sampled a few Elizabeth Mott products in my last year of subbing, and they have all been GREAT! This liquid liner has a great brush, however the color is not for me. The shade is black with silver glitter which is great for this month’s Glam Bag theme, but not so great for me to wear out and about on a daily basis. I will however purchase this liner in plain black. It seems to dry matte, doesn’t budge, and the brush give you enough control to do the perfect cat eye.
Edit: After writing up this post, but before publishing, when I washed my hand, the liner seemed to peel off of my hand, but didn’t run. So it is waterproof, as long as you don’t rub your eye while in water.
Tarte Maracuja Oil
THIS OIL IS EVERYTHING! When they say add oil to oily skin to control oil, this is the oil to use. I swear by this stuff. I have been using Tarte Maracuja Oil on and off since this time last year, and this oil is like a miracle. It makes my skin more supple, tones down my blemishes, gives me a healthy glow, and gives me oil control. Everytime I stop using this oil, my skin gets out of whack, as soon as I use it again, I notice that it heals my skin beautifully. The sample size is packaged beautifully, and it is the same deluxe size sample that Tarte packages in their holiday sets. I promise if you try this oil, you will see a significant change overnight.
Can you see why this is the BEST Glam Bag I’ve ever received? Did you get a good Ipsy sub this month?
