Ipsy Glamblag August 2017

For the month of the August I got scattered, hence the crappy stock photo...

MARC ANTHONY's Strictly Curls Curl Envy Perfect Curl Cream - for a drug store brand, this was quite impressive. Light and lemony, leaves my hair bouncy.

AURORA's Pro Cover Up Concealer  -  thick concealer for coverage, but not great for very dry skin

GLAMOUR DOLLS' Romantic Rose Blending Brush  -  cannot go wrong with another brush!


PACIFICA's Coconut Blush Duo  - blush infused with coconut, which had me intrigued. Downside? The box was so tight it took 10 minutes to get the item out! :(

THEBALM COSMETICS' theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow  -  ugly brown eyeshadow that Ipsy keeps sending me. STOP FOR THE LOVE OF GODDESS!

Ipsy Glambag May 2017

I was really impressed this month with the foundation as one of the items. Does the bag remind anyone else of those backpacks from the early 90's? 

GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE's Charcoal Wash Off Mask - received this in multiple bags. RETIRE IT!

MANNA KADAR COSMETICS' Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter Duo - this is the 2nd time I've received it. too pink for a highlighter, and dark for a bronzer...not a fan.

Estée Lauder's Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact - sheer foundation with 8 hour wear.  This is full sized! SCORE! 

TRÈSTIQUE's Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Tuscan Wine - in another bag I received a bright red and I LOOOOVED it. I'm equally as happy with this. I wonder if the rest of the brand is fantastic too. 

LUXIE BEAUTY's Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660 - foundation brush that is made for liquid, cream, or powder foundations, concealers, highlighters AND bronzers.
