I am so late with my Ipsy Glam Bag post since I have been busy with a lot of crazy things. I am still ALIVE! I was just really busy with a ton of things – I got sick (boo), I celebrated my birthday (yay!) and we had our home blessed (yiihii). Anyway, this is what I got:
Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush $2.49
The comments on the Coastal Scents website are amazing! A lot of people are loving the usefulness and durability of this brush and for its price – $2.49, I think it’s so worth it! I have been a fan of coastal scents brushes since I started with this set when I was new with make up and it didn’t disappoint. From eye shadow to face brushes, coastal scents have been a great set of brushes. Of course overtime I find that a couple of the face brushes were shedding but I think after a few years of putting those into good use, on top of that maybe I have not been cleaning it right back then, the brushes got tired and little by little they’re giving up. But those are still great face brushes for beginners, I must say.
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide On Eye Pencil in Blacker than Black (Full size $20.00)
Need I say more? The name says it all – 24/7. Yes, it doesn’t move, doesn’t budge, doesn’t move around. Love this liner!
Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion (2oz/60g $78.00; I got the sample size though)
This is surprisingly great. I thought that this is going to be a “just another skin care sample” but I am pleased. I actually like it on my skin. Not sure about the transformation or how immediate it should be having my skin look a lot healthier and brighter but I definitely love how this is gentle and how it doesn’t irritate my skin at all.
Elizabeth Mott pop! goes the shadow in Champagne ($12.99)
Love the colour and the smoothness of this shadow! It blends really well and I can use it everyday. I think this one will be in my favourite highlights from now on 🙂
Starlooks Luscious Longwear Lip Pencil in Nude ($12.00)
I am a neutral type of girl so this shade is love! Depending on how chapped/dry my lips are, I can either use this alone or with a gloss on top but nonetheless a very lovely and wearable shade and very comfortable on the lips.
So in total I have five items and I am pleased with all of them. I’m not into skin care products but like I said I enjoyed the microdermabrasion but if I had a choice, I would want to have another make up product of some sort but I can’t complain, I have an awesome bag this month and I can’t believe it is nearing the end of April! Gaaah! Time is really flying and it’s crazyyyy. Anyway, I am hoping to be back in full swing now and I am trying my best to blog more. Just gets hard to juggle a few things here and there but I’ll be able to get back on track soon.
