Ipsy bag (Glam bag / MyGlam bag) is a monthly subscription service where every month you will receive a bag full of deluxe samples and full-sized products (total of 5 items per bag). This month's theme is “Destination Beauty“.
- bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready – A rosy pink MLBB shade! Gorgeous color. Rich pigment and full coverage. Goes on smoothly and leaves a beautiful shine. It feels moisturizing on and has a slight minty scent. The formula is super soft, though, and together with its super small size, I'm sad to report that I broke the bullet while swatching the color on my arm. :( It's still usable with a lip brush but I'm sad nonetheless!
- Chella Eyeliner Pen in Indigo Blue – I've been meaning to get a blue liquid eyeliner for a while so it was a nice surprise to see this one in the bag. While the color looks nice, the formula isn't exactly up to par with my other eyeliners. It feels slightly dry and the ink doesn't seem to flow smoothly to the (felt) tip, making it a little hard to create a sharp wing. It also washes off very easily with plain water. If your eyelid is usually dry and doesn't get oily too much, I think this will be a good alternative to a waterproof version since we all know how difficult it can be to remove those!
- Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer – I'm always super excited to receive anything from Pixi! I just love the brand. :) This one is a face primer in a pearlescent peachy shade. The finish is dewy and leaves a soft glow to the skin. You can use it under foundation to add subtle radiance but I much prefer it as a luminizer/highlighter. It tends to emphasize pores and fine lines, though, so use sparingly! :)
- NYX Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palette in Cabana Boy – A neutral eyeshadow palette! Wow, this bag just keeps getting better and better! :) This one is a trio of beautiful brown shades in different finishes — glittery gold/champagne, shimmery medium brown, and matte dark brown. The glittery and matte ones are beautifully pigmented but the shimmery one is a little light which can be a good thing for a soft crease contouring. The palette size is super travel-friendly and comes with a dual-ended sponge tip applicator. And did you notice the cute little bow detail on the lid?! ♥
I have to say, this month's bag is the best bag I've received so far (I've been a subscriber for more than a year now). Every item in this bag is usable and comes in wearable shades. I'm a little disappointed that they only sent 4 products this month (instead of 5), though, but it's OK, I can live. :D
Last thing to mention is the bag. This one is the first of Ipsy's new “Artist Series” and features a print from “Street Anatomy” series by Klari Reis which showcases the artist's hometown San Francisco (oh how I love and miss this city… I'd really love to visit again some day…).
