July Ipsy Bag

Hi lovelies and Happy Tuesday!

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?!

treStiQue Mini Highlight Stick

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.

The Balm Eyeshadow & Ofra Lipliner
Ofra lip liner in Maya $13.
The Balm in Matt Kumar


And finally an angled brush from Luxiebeauty and a hand cream from Delectable.

Delectable Hand Cream in Lemon &Cream $12 and Angled Brush from Luxie $10

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.

What is in my June Ipsy Bag?

Hi lovelies,

Hope you all had a great weekend and are having a fantastic Sunday night!

I am winding down with a good mint tea, a much needed at-home facial (I love starting the week with clean fresh skin) and a blog post.

Here is what was in my ipsy bag, plus a mini review of the things I’ve been able to use so far.

Japonesque Solid Brush Cleaner $20@ Ulta

First off is the Japonesque Solid Brush Cleaner, which I absolutely love! Cleaning my brushes can sometimes be a hassle, especially since I use a lot of different eye-shadow brushes to avoid mixing colors. This is super easy to use, all you have to do is wet your brush and rub it on the solid balm in the container. This cleans your brushes thoroughly, is super easy to use and smells amazing! I give it a 10+.

Vasanti Kajal Waterline Eyeliner Pencil – Intense Black $19 @ vasanticosmetics.com

Next is this Vasanti eyeliner, it says it’s for the waterline, but I used it on my top lids and really liked it. The consistency is very smooth, so you avoid the pulling and tugging that can sometimes happen with pencil/solid eyeliners. It did smudge very easy, which makes me think that it would be very messy to use on the actual water line. I’ll keep you posted.

Urban Decay Lounge Eyeshadow $19 @ urbandecay.com
Urban Decay Lounge Eyeshadow – Closeup

This Urban Decay shadow is very pretty and pigmented. It has blue, green, red, brown tones, so it really depends on how the light hits it. I have not used it, but am very excited to try. The sample size is about the size of a penny.

Dirty Little Secrete – Baked Highlighter in Bellisima $9 @ dirty-little-secrete.com

This baked highlighter has a very nice pink shimmer, it reminds me of the MAC mineralize blushes, but very affordable in comparison.

Mark Anthony – Dream Waves Beach Spray $8.29 @ walgreens.com

Lastly, is the Mark Anthony – Dream Waves Beach Spray. This I’m not super excited to try, mainly because I have super straight hair, so no waves or curls ever stay. But I am planning to go to a swimming hole (super popular in Texas) this Wednesday, so I’ll give it a try there!

Hope you guys liked this post! Are any of you subscribed to ipsy, if so what was in your bag?

Mucho love – Mareza.

What’s in my May Ipsy Bag?!

Hi lovelies,

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:
