This month’s Glam Bag theme was Rockstarlette, and the bag design this month is pretty cute – with constellations in the shape of makeup products, available in silver and in gold. The outer fabric is neoprene (aka scuba) with the inside lined with a metallic fabric. I especially like the star zipper pull.
First up is the Adesse New York Brightening Base Coat (description from the Ipsy page):
Protect and serve. Antioxidants keep nails safe from damage caused by the environment and any heavy colors or glitters applied on top.
White tea and bamboo extracts help give tips natural-looking shine and luster
- Tough love. Keratin proteins and vitamin E make nails stronger.
the formula dries as a satin finish, but doesn’t leave lips parched.
Despite the unfortunate name, I was initially excited about this liquid lipstick as it is a satin finish. The colour is great, but it applies streaky and when the liquid lipstick dries down, it feels tacky / sticky on my lips. This is a cruelty free brand!
Third up is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (description from Ipsy):
Big. Bigger. Biggest. The hourglass-shaped wand grabs onto every single lash while the collagen-infused formula gives us a dramatic va-va-va volume effect.
Back in black. Unique peptides produce the deepest noir-worthy shade.
One-swipe wonder. A single coat creates both length and curl.
- Long-distance winner. Film-forming polymers ensure smudge-proof, all-day wear.
The anti-inflammatory properties of the Blue Lotus date back to Ancient Greece and Homer’s Lotus Eaters (who lived off of the tranquil plants).
White tea and vitamin E help prevent fine lines and wrinkles
- Absorbs and hydrates quickly, so we look dewy in an instant
Double down. Duo fibers give us greater control over how we apply.
Lighten up. Synthetic white fibers on the end of the brush lay down pigments more gently than a denser brush would (which means zero risk of overdoing it).
Friends with everyone. Plays well with powders, creams and liquids.
I really like Luxie’s brushes AND they are vegan and cruelty free. I haven’t had a chance to play with this brush yet, but it is super soft to the touch.
All in all, I thought that this this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag was way better than last month! Were you happy with what you got?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
