Ipsy February Glam Bag
This month’s theme: Much Love.
The bag itself is kinda cute, though a bit smaller than some in the past. At least this one doesn’t have a bad smell like last month.
Let’s get into it!
NYX Butter Lipstick in Lifeguard- $6
Y’all know, I am a sucker for Nyx. I love a lot of their products… This just isn’t one of them. I do have another Butter Lipstick and I really don’t use it. I am a full-on-lipstick-or-nothing girl. These butter lipsticks are a bit to sheer for me. I also prefer a matte or semi-matte lip and this is a bit on the glossy side for me.
On the other hand, the lipsticks are very comfortable to wear and feel great on the lips. Great for those days you don’t want a full on lip or prefer a more natural look.
I love banana powders, they are great for a natural highlight and brightening up the under eye area and to even out skin tone. I have received a few in past bags and each of them tend to have a different feel.
I have to say, this is the smoothest, creamiest, and most luxurious feeling one that I have. Once I did this swatch, I fully blended it into my skin and I am just amazed at how smooth it feels and it’s super lightweight. Doesn’t feel as heavy as my Bella Pierre Banana Powder and feels so much smoother than my Morphe one. Actually, it feels super similar to Ben Nye Banana Powder. Great powder!
Lord & berry Line/Shade Eye Pencil #221 Black- $19
So, to be honest, when I first saw this I was a little ‘meh’ about it. First, I don’t remember the last time I used an actual pencil liner. I either use felt tip or cream liner. If I do use a pencil it’s mechanical. Then, I swatched it…
The pigment is so deep! There was zero tug or feathering. It’s super silky smooth. It’s blendable for a smoked out look and it’s waterproof! This pencil is formulated with Kajal and Kohl, which is something that I haven’t seen very often and I believe that’s why it’s so pigmented and smooth. Looks like I will be needing another sharpener!
True Botanicals Resurfacing Moisture Mask $90 for full size 1.7 oz
So, this mask offers deep exfoliation, moisture, and great hydration.It will allow you do go from dull to radiant in 5 minutes! I am not loving the smell or the price. It has Lactic acid for exfoliation and avocado butter for moisture. I am going to try it and see how well the claims hold up, but secretly I’m hoping I don’t love it.. I mean $90! Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Blush Brush 514 $18
This brush is beautiful! Lightweight, super soft, and perfect size. Vegan, synthetic and cruelty- free. I love the slightly tapered dome shape, it seems to do something special when applying blush. I even used this to apply a highlight and a setting powder. This is a great multi-tasking brush and I love it!
