The simple black and pink design of this month’s glam bag is just lovely. I like how it is a little cushiony too!
First time I tried eyeshadows from Becca Cosmetics and I was so excited! I used the Ultimate Eye Colour Quads in Sun Chaser and Galactica.
The packaging is of course very elegant and what I love about this kind of eye make ups is they’re so perfect for travel. I was able to use Sun Chaser for a week and I was fine, really, I was! I didn’t cry and didn’t miss my well loved UD Naked Basics (okay, I did, just a little). But seriously, this quad is very handy and compact and it serves its purpose and I am very happy.
This glam bag is on point! Love the colours and the bohemian look of this bag.
This month’s products are:
Got this blush in the shade tango. A very beautiful pink that suits a lot of skin tones. Definitely a great blush to add to my collection and will most probably be summer staple. Sells for USD$15.00 on the Hikari website.
Like how this product is not sticky and the moisture lasts long. Pretty standard for a lip balm but of course, a girl can never have too many lip balms so this is another lip balm that will go to either one of my purses or bedside. This lip balm sells originally for USD$29.75 (Big Kiss Gift Set – 5 lip balms in a set) and on currently on sale for USD$25.00.
I cannot be any happier that I got this palette! For only $15.00, you get six shadows, one highlight, two blush and a contour. Of course, the pigmentation is amazing and the colours are lovely and perfect for everyday. It is simple enough to use during the day as well as intense and pigmented enough to use at night. I love how the colours are perfectly chosen to compliment each other and the face products are equally amazing!
The packaging is sleek and simple enough to carry everywhere, perfect for travel. Very skinny cardboard case that lets you stick this palette in between the stuff in your purse (or pockets) or your little make up bag.
This month’s glam bag is amazing. Not only did it come in a nice, pretty and fresh looking bag, it also holds some products that I really enjoy!
I have been getting some sexy hair sample from salons and Ipsy specifically and this one smells good. I did not see anything extra ordinary when I applied this to my hair but what I love is that it doesn’t feel greasy at all and it left my hair feeling light and smelling fresh.
This is the first time I have ever used a mattifying lotion though I normally use primer before I put my make up on. It is very hard to describe how this feels on my skin but when I put it on, it feels like I am putting on a regular lotion but when it adheres to my skin, it feels supple and plump but not oily at all. It is a very interesting product and I actually saw a difference on the lasting power of my foundation. Proven that my foundation lasted longer and I can actually see my blush staying in place. Love this product!
So happy I got the lucky penny and not fifty shades. I don’t know about you but I love me some copper shades in summer. Perfect for beach / pool parties or just a casual eye look over simple dinner. I am not a fan of pigments in general but this one since the colour is so pretty – yes, I will definitely use this!
By far my favourite lip product in this bag! First time I tried the NYX Butter Lipstick and I am very impressed! Love that it is not shimmery but just very moisturizing and buttery. I am a very neutral girl when it comes to lipsticks in general so this shade Little Susie is not something I would pick up on my own but my oh my, Ipsy, you hit the nail on the head! This vibrant wearable pink colour is just perfect for spring and summer. Love using this paired to a nude lip liner and do some natural gradient – just bitten type of look. Can’t rave enough about this lipstick. This is staying in mah purse definitely!
Great colour for highlight. I always use the Body Shop’s pencil concealer to highlight (and conceal) and this Chella highlighter in my opinion is a better version of that. I love how it feels thin on the skin but gives enough highlight to the parts of my face needing more glow. Something worth repurchasing I must say.

Overall, the products are all nice and I really enjoyed trying all the stuff I got. Super excited to see what spring and summer adventures I’ll have and I think I might be starting this warm weather escapade early 😉
