Ever since I signed up with Ipsy back in September I’ve been quite the happy camper! Some bags have been a bit repetitive but overall I’ve been more than pleased each month I crack open the shiny pink bubble wrap. It appears we’ve hit a snag this month. It’s not the worst bag ever but I’m totally not loving my glam bag this month.
This month’s theme was “Red Carpet Ready” but the products definitely didn’t feel red carpet glam. Here’s a breakdown of what was included:
Lash Card – I’m sure some ladies might find a mascara shield appealing but I’m not sure I’ll even use them. I don’t have too many smudging issues when applying mascara. Certainly not enough to need a shield. Total miss!
Pop Beauty Smoky Black mascara – I’ve never heard of Pop Beauty but I am a bit interested in trying out this mascara. Although I have more than enough open mascaras floating around I’ll try to test it out sooner than later. Hopefully I like it!
Pixi Flawless & Poreless primer – I’ve heard a few nice things about the Pixi brand and the texture of this primer feels really nice but another primer, Ipsy?? I don’t use face primers too often and Ipsy recently included one in the December bag so I wasn’t looking forward to getting another one.
Coastal Scents Glitz & Glamour quad – This isn’t at all a bad mini quad. I think it’s great for sexy smokey looks but I could have done without. I have a few of these quads (one from a previous glam bag) that I haven’t even touched. Not to mention you can get one for free if you order from Coastal Scents. It’s a nice mini quad but I would have liked to see something different.
Mica Beauty gel liner – This was the only product I was excited about this month. I just love gel/cream liners because they’re so easy to apply. I’ve only tried three gel liners before so I’m very curious to see how I’ll like this one. It looks pretty decent though!
This month definitely could have been better but it wasn’t a complete waste. I could have done without the mini eyeshadow quad, primer and lash cards but I’m really happy about the liner. Maybe the liner and mascara will be so awesome it makes up for everything this month. Fingers crossed next month’s bag blows this one out of the water!
