Ipsy Favorites and Hate Its!

Ipsy Glam Bags
I have been getting Ipsy for a full year now.

I have decided to take a look back at what I have received in my Glam Bags and see what I love and what I have hated!  I think overall I have received a lot of great products!

In June 2015 I got my very first Glam Bag!  I am not going to lie, I was sooooo excited!
the tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Kona Coffee is a favorite!
I don’t love liquid lipsticks, but the JCat Beauty had a nice cooling feel and peppermint scent that I do like.

September 2015 
Not Soap, Radio Revitalizing Hand/Body Lotion in the scent persimmon + plum (smells quite delightful)
tre’StiQue  Mini Matte Lip Crayon Hate it! Unfortunately, the color is absolutely horrendous on my lips!
I also did not like the golden bag from this month.
This was the month that I didn’t get the things in my bags that I was showed in my preview.  Once the mix up was cleared up, I also received a blush from Model Co that I use very often and love, it is a favorite.

October 2015
The gold bag for this month was very small.  Not much can be put into this bag.  I gave it to my daughter and she loves it, so I guess it turned into a winner even though I didn’t like it.
Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum Favorite
AURORA Gel Effect Nail Polish in Inky Dinky…While it is a perfect fall dark purple shade, this one is went into my give away pile.  I get my toes done at the salon and never paint my finger nails at home.  As I have mentioned before, I HATE getting nail polish samples, yet seem to get them almost every month, grrrrrr😦

November 2016
While the actual “Out of this world” bag is ugly so it is a Hate It, the products I got in it were overall awesome!

Smashbox Cosmetics Full Exposure Mascara  favorite

Crown Brush Deluxe Pointed Crease Brush Favorite

Luxie Beauty Matte Eyeshadow Pan No. 290 Aubergine  It is a beautiful eggplant color  perfect for in the crease.  Maybe I will use the Crown Brush to apply it. Favorite

December 2015

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Mechanical Eye Liner
This did not swatch too well, but I have to say that since I have been using it I have really enjoyed it.  I got the color wild child which is kind of like an off black.  I really like that it is a mechanical liner.  I feel as if so much product gets wasted with the types that need to be sharpened. I have actually used up this entire product. Favorite!

LATHER honey moisture mask with propolis extract Favorite!
I LOVE this mask!  It has a great feel and my skin has been loving the extra moisture!  I also love the honey scent!  This is my favorite thing that I got in my glam bag this month.

FORMULA X  Nail Polish in Revved Up Hate it! (You know how I feel about nail polish…)

January 2016
skyn ICELAND Travel Size Glacial Cleansing Cloths Infused with Icelandic glacial waters and beneficial natural extracts, they sweep away makeup, dirt, oil and other impurities while refreshing and soothing stressed skin.  I really like these cloths.

theBalm Cosmetics Mr. Write (Now) |

theBalm Cosmetics Mr. Write (Now) Jack B. Bronze (rich bronze)  Overall I like the brand the Balm.  This eyeliner is no exception.  I only wish that I had gotten the other color Scott B. Bordeaux (deep purple), but this is still a great eyeliner.  I prefer these twist up liners over the type that need to be sharpened.  I have worn this to work a few times already and it has lasted throughout the entire day well without any smudging or budging.

February 2016
I didn’t like anything in this months bag.  The envelop design bag itself though was super cute and a Favorite!

I really like this month’s bag.  It has a cute pattern and feel to it. I also like that it has a different type of closure than the usual zipper.
