Ipsy Glam Bag January 2014

I’m a little late posting this and I do apologize! Now lets talk about how much I love the Glam Bag this month!


First off the bag that I got this month isn’t as awesomely cute as last month’s, but I do see myself using it for travel in the future. I think it will be perfect for holding small bottles of things I want to take with me next time I actually go on a vacation.


First product I want to share is the MICA Beauty Cosmetics tinted lip balm. Amazing. I love it and I’ve been wearing it for a few days now. I honestly forget that I’m even wearing it because it’s super light and comfortable. MicaBeauty’s 24 hour Tinted Lip Balm conditions your lips without smudge while delivering sophisticated finish. For a sheer wash of color, one swipe is all you need. For a bolder pout, simply apply another swipe and this lip balm will create lips every woman covets. Kiss-proof and smudge-proof!” -Ipsy I believe I believe the color I got is called: fiesta.

Next up is a little jar of Briogeo ‘Don’t Despair Repair’ deep conditioning mask. Since I haven’t colored my hair since about 2008 and my hair wont hold a curl for anything, I don’t really need to use this. My hair isn’t damaged BUT I do have a friend who likes to torture her hair and who is also an Ipsy subscriber and she absolutely loves it. I gave her my sample and she was ecstatic, so I think it’s worth a try if you have damaged hair or just want to do a deep conditioning. “Repair and treat dry, damaged and breaking hair with Don’t Despair, Repair!™ deep conditioning mask. Fortified with ultra-hydrating avocado, sweet almond & argan oils, strengthening keratin protein, power-conditioning rosehip oil, soothing aloe, and super hair-essential vitamins B5, D, A, E and biotin. This unique complex of targeted ingredients helps increase hair elasticity and moisture to prevent breakage, promotes healthy shine and luster, and replenishes strength.” -Ipsy

Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion. I love it first of all, but it says that it’s “fragrance free” and it’s really not. It sort of smells like an orange creamsicle to me… which I don’t think is on purpose. Whatever it is, it smells good. “Nourish Organic’s Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion provides continuous moisture throughout the day while replenishing essential skin nutrients. The advanced, non-greasy formula is also rich in vitamins and antioxidants to boost skin’s defenses and leave skin healthier and younger-looking every day. 100% Natural. USDA-Certified Organic. Fragrance-Free. Alcohol-Free. Ultra gentle for sensitive skin.” -Ipsy

I also received 4 Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads. It’s kind of hard to tell if I like this or not. I do have interest in trying Proactiv products so I’m glad these were included but it’s a bit too early to tell. (I honestly wish I had gotten the Benefit POREfessional product that some other subscribers got this month.) “The Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads are a convenient, single-use, no-rinse peel pad that can instantly boost your skin’s glow and radiance. The pads help remove dead skin cells to unclog pores and remove dull layers to reveal newer, smoother, more even toned skin. With just a few quick swipes you can help fade away post acne dark marks, reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores.” -Ipsy


Last but not least I got the Smooth Shadow by Elizabeth Mott. This product is really nice, it can be used as an upper lid liner, on your waterline, as a highlighter etc. It’s just got a lot of great uses and I’ve been enjoying it. “The ultimate gel pencil that’s smooth like butter and packed with deliciously creamy colors. These velvety pencils glide on with ease, and contain just enough shimmer. They’re also waterproof and perfect to wear all day and night, a must have for all color lovers! Use a cosmetics sharpener for best results.” -Ipsy
