The simple black and pink design of this month’s glam bag is just lovely. I like how it is a little cushiony too!
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil
The shade I got is Universal Taupe (not sure if there are any other since it says “universal”). The tip of the pencil is oval which makes it both easy and hard to use. Easy when you angle it, to make strokes of hair in one direction but hard at the same time because if you don’t angle it properly, you’ll end up with a thick, chunky fake brow hair strand. The colour suits me well, not sure if this will work for everyone. I like that it has a spooley for blending and brushing my brow hairs through. Sells for USD$24.00 on the IT Cosmetics website.
Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer
I like that this formula is oil free and it makes my skin look silky and smooth after application. It leaves my skin looking flawless for easy make up application. I like that this primer keeps my make up in place and it doesn’t make me look like a grease ball at the end of the day. My make up lasted for more than 10 hours when I used this primer. Highly recommend especially for people with oily / sensitive skin. Sells for USD$16.00 on the Smashbox website (travel-size).
Altchek MD Eye Gel Pads
For me this is an “okay” eye pad. Didn’t notice any difference since I only have a couple pairs but it is generally an average eye pads for me. Sells for USD$20.00 on the Altchek MD website (10 treatments).
Formula X Power Source Nail Colour
Got this in a coral pink shade and I love it. Wish it wasn’t a sample size though. Get them at Sephora for USD$10.50.
Tre’stique Mini Shadow Crayon
When I first saw this in my glam bag I thought “holy sh*t it will stain my bag, the cap was off!” But it wasn’t, it was the cap that i’m seeing shaped as a tip of a pencil. Duh. Out of all the shades that Ipsy was giving to ipsters, I don’t understand why I got the Aspen Pine. And I am SAD. Anyway, the lasting power is great. I will use it as a base to make other shadows last longer. To be honest, I will probably use this product more often if it was my usual nude / gold shade and not this green that I got. Not the product’s fault, it is great, just not my colour. Sells for USD$ 26.00 on the Tre’stique website.
All of the items in my glam bag this month are new to me – haven’t owned, haven’t tried and I am generally pleased with what I got. Hi summer, I can almost touch you!
