It’s that time of the month again… no not my period haha, its Ipsy GlamBag post!
So if you’re interested in seeing what’s in the bag, keep reading.
Spoiler Alert: It wasn’t a unicorn!
So first of the bag is super cute. It has little umbrellas, kind of like a beach summer theme, but the actual bag is iridescent. Also how cute are those stickers?!
Next is this little highlight stick. The pay-off is super nice, very pigmented and will definitely have me saying “yaaaas queen!”.
See swatch below.
This highlighter reminds me of a dupe for “Watt’s Up!” by Benefit Cosmetics.
Next, I got an eyeshadow and a lip liner. Both are a very pretty deep burgundy color.The lip liner was from OFRA in the color Maya and the eyeshadow is from The Balm “Meet Matt(e) Trimony palette.
And finally an angled brush from Luxiebeauty and a hand cream from Delectable.
Overall, I am super happy with this bag. The cosmetics are so rich and pretty, and perfect for fall, which is right around the corner! The cream smells delicious, like a dessert and the brush has a super fine brush, which I think will perfect for lining with eyeshadow.

Two weeks ago I went to LUSH Cosmetics and bought myself some goodies. I wanted to try these out before posting about them so I could do a little review, so here it is!
First of, I got the Roots Hair Treatment. My hair is very fine, thin and lacks volume so this treatment is supposed to make your hair shine without weighing it down. You leave it in your hair for about 20 mins and then shampoo. It has mint in it so it it makes your scalp tingle, I really really like it. Afterwards my hair is so shiny and soft, and smells really good.
Next is the Dark Angels face & body cleanser. This contains black sugar and charcoal that absorb excess oils. I have oily skin which can sometimes break out, especially during that time of the month or the summer months. So this was right up my alley! The only thing is I recommend taking this off in front of a mirror to ensure you remove everything from your face, I did it in the shower and when i came out half my face was still black from the charcoal, it looked as if I had a beard. lol.
The last thing I got was the Mask of Magnaminty. I absolutely love this! It has China clay and peppermint which help extract all the nasty stuff living in my pores, it also leaves a tingly feeling, I love mint! Aside from this, it also has honey and vanilla which help calm redness and soothe the skin. I leave this on for about 15 mins and then wash off in the shower.
I hope you guys enjoyed this mini review, and to buy any of these products visit a store near you or visit www.lush.com.
Do you guys have any lush favorites you recommend?
Today I am going to be reviewing the Wet n Wild Ombre Lip Want. I found them at Target (the land of beautiful things) this month and I just had to get all three. I checked their website but can’t find them anywhere, does anyone know anything else about these?!
The tree shades I found are: Mutually Beneficial, Pretty Pocket Pair and Sisters in Charms.
I feel the color combinations really work and compliment each other. Each of the colors on their own are beautiful and very pigmented.
My absolute favorite is Mutually Beneficial, although the ombre look doesn’t really show in this picture, it definitely stands out when you wear it. The colors mix very well and can make for a bright springy lip. This formula is creamy but goes on matte, also extremely pigmented and even when you use oil based make-up remover, your lips will still have a rosy stain that I personally really like.
Next is Pretty Pocket Pair. This gives you the perfect vampy lip that you can rock for a bold day look or a sultry night out. The formula for this color is very creamy and when both colors mix it has a slight shimmer to it, so it’s not completely matte.
Finally, Sisters in Charms. This one I have a love-hate relationship with. I don’t like the more nude color, but when mixed with the pink color it gets this beautiful peach lip. It’s a little light and not so pigmented. but the color still wears nicely. This formula is a little dryer and can get crusty on your lips.
Pros: Budget friendly, very pigmented, nice formula and cruelty free
I have been away for a while… a long while, but I want to get back into the habit of updating at least twice a week.
So where have I been?
I got married in April and then went on the honeymoon with my hubby. I’ve also been super busy at work, but I’m back!
Now about the May Ipsy Bag, first impression… I love the design of the bag. Instead of having a zipper, it has a little clip at the front which I really like. Plus the pattern is super fun and makes me want to travel.
The samples inside are pretty interesting and I am definitely excited to try them. I’ve never heard of some of these brands, but I especially like that they are vegan and cruelty free. I’ve also included the link and full size prize if you’re interested. Here they are:
