Celestially Inspired Pouch
This month’s glam bag features a celestially inspired look which has to be my favourite pouch so far. Not to mention this beautiful zipper handle!
BENEFIT COSMETICS – Gimme Brow + Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in 4.5 (Neutral Deep Brown)
I am all about brow make up because I have very little eyebrow hairs. This brow gel contains microfibers that stick to your eyebrow hairs and adds volume and fullness. It’s also water resistant and lasts all day. I was very impressed with this product.
IBOM – Lemon Verbena Clay Mask
This lemon clay mask is perfect for my oily skin because it contains tea tree (for oily skin), kaolin (reduces pore size), honey, centella asiatica extract and matsuchi (retains moisture). The rice husk and red bean particles allows for exfoliation and the lemon verbena extract aids in clearer, healthier looking skin.
FIRST AID BEAUTY – Hello Fab Coconut Water Cream
I’m a big fan of First Aid Beauty products and this Hello Fab Coconut Water Cream is one of my favourite products! This oil free and lightweight water cream instantly absorbs into your skin for a noticeably smoother and plumper complexion. It’s rich in amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and coconut water. You really can’t go wrong with this product.
OFRA COSMETICS – OFRA x Madison Moondance Highlighter
This highlighter made in collaboration with beauty blogger and new mommy, Madison Miller is a beautiful highly pigmented champagne shade. You really don’t need much on your brush to add some glow to your look.
SMASHBOX COSMETICS – Studio Skin 24 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation in 2.16 Golden (Medium)
This foundation applies to my skin so beautifully! It’s oil-free, contains hyaluronic acid and it doesn’t oxidize and darken over time on your skin! I love the matte finish and build-able coverage. The only fault about this product is that its not my shade which is a common issue when receiving concealers and foundations from beauty box subscriptions. But no worries, this foundation works perfectly as a concealer as well!
L.O.C.K. COLOR – Unicorn Glow Hydrating Primer
I was in need of a new primer and found this beauty in the add-on section on the ipsy website, and I’m glad I gave it a try. It’s lightweight with a gel texture – perfect for my oily skin. It also contains hydrolyzed collagen and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture. My foundation and concealer really does blend in smoothly over this primer. This is my first time trying L.O.C.K. COLOR cosmetics and I’m quite impressed!
WANDER BEAUTY – Frame Your Face Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe
This products is actually full size because I also needed a new eyebrow pencil. I wanted something that will mimic the eyebrows hairs for a more natural look. My first impression of this brow pencil wasn’t great to be honest… It takes a while for the product to warm up on your skin so you gotta “rub” the pencil in a bit until the product softens and the pigment comes through. Once the pigment finally starts showing, I found it hard to make subtle hair-like strokes. Maybe I just need some practice but I wish the product was more pigmented and precise like it’s described.
SKYN ICELAND – Icelandic Youth Serum
I was intrigued by this skin care add-on product because it has a red-colored tint to it. Don’t worry, it doesn’t actually stay red on your skin once you massage it in! This serum is fast absorbing, lightweight and contains astaxanthin, one of the most powerful antioxidants on Earth!
IT COSMETICS – Confidence in a Cleanser
This is another favourite skin care product that I added on! It’s sulfate-free and soap-free, with collagen, hyaluronic acid, colloidal oatmeal, and a ceramide complex to remove make up, retaining moisture and nourishing your skin.
This month’s ipsy glam bag was very impressive! I am disappointed by the WANDER BEAUTY’s eyebrow pencil but besides that, I am definitely a fan of the rest of the products.
What’s in your ipsy glam bag this month?
