Hi there! Happy Monday!
Last month instead of writing a blog post for my Ipsy Glam Bag I did an unbagging first impressions video on my YouTube channel. I decided that this month I wanted to write a blog post on it, but if you missed seeing last months post you can watch the video. I did originally plan on doing a video unboxing, but it turned into a hilarious bloopers video for my channel : ) Please don’t forget to let me know what you got in your Ipsy this month if you’re a subscriber, and what you thought!
Ipsy Glam Bag March 2015:
My April Ipsy Glam Bag:
Bag and Theme:
The theme is “Beautifully Bohemian” and the bag is an adorable straw bag with colorful stripes. I *love* the bag! It is so cute and summery, and the inside is lined so even though the outside is straw it can still function as a makeup bag.
I love nail polish. This is a beautifully creme midtone pink color. I have a really embarassingly gigantic nail polish collection that I justify because I do my own nails and switch the colors often. I have not used this brand before, but hopefully it’s as pretty as appears in the bottle and wears well.
I am excited to try this out! I am really pleased with the generous size of this sample because I will actually be able to get a good feel for the product. I am thinking even though it says “Good Morning” in the name that I may prefer it under a night moisturizer because I do tend to worry about getting oily in the daytime. I will check it out.
At first glance I do not like this color. It seems a bit matronly, but once swatched I think it could have potential over nude lipsticks. We will see. Not a fan of the packaging, but the formula seems okay, and I love the small size with a nice doe foot applicator for tossing into any bag.
I was SO excited to see something from The Balm. When I had my makeup done for my wedding the makeup artist used mostly The Balm and I have adored the brand ever since. I own the nude ‘tude palette from the balm, and now I really want the Nude Dude. They are reasonably priced, especially compared to other high-end neutral eyeshadow palettes, and very highly pigmented! Also, how cute is the packaging? They also offter a “clean” version if you don’t like the suggestive packaging of the Nude ‘Tude, but I am not sure of the Nude ‘Dude options. I got the color “fit” which is a beautiful copper color with gorgeous shimmer. I love that we got an adorable package magnetic closure which is such a nice touch.
At first sniff I wasn’t that into this, but after wearing it for the past couple of days I actually am really growing to love it. And, Stephan commented that I smelled good when I was wearing it (and he didn’t know it was something that I was reviewing or something new) which is always a bonus ; ) I love a rollerball for traveling and for my bag!
Overall I LOVED this month! I will use everything, and I see myself reaching for these products on a regular basis. Once again to me this was definitely worth the $10 that Ipsy costs/month.
