Ok guys, before I start the review I just want to let you know that I’m SO happy about this month’s bag… the actual bag! It’s simple and girly. Love!

You know I love me some NYX buuuut this is just not my type of eyeshadow color. I was bummed to see that Ipsy gave out 3 other colors and I wish I got any of the other 3. If I were just reviewing the actual eyeshadow, minus the color, it’s awesome! It’s super pigmented and glides on smoothly. I’ll have to get the other colors!

This product made my skin feel smoother and firmer after a single use. I typically like masks that have exfoliation beads but the gel was a nice change. Thank goodness I don’t have sensitive skin because it does say not to use if you have sensitive skin.

First of all, this company is from San Diego so I was so excited to try something that was made locally! This is a great scrub and it did feel like all my dead skin cells were scrubbed off after using it. Pretty awesome.

Seriously you can never have too many liquid lipsticks! I am always a happy camper when I get one in my glam bags. This one is wonderful! It’s so creamy and goes on perfectly. I’ve received other products from this brand before which I loved so I kind of expected that I would become a fan of their liquid lipstick. They nailed it with this color too!

I’m sure everyone has heard of the brand tarte before so I was thrilled to get a product from them this month! Of course, the packaging is super cute right? Any way, at first I thought this was oil for your hair but I read the box and it’s actually for your face. Say what?! I’ve never used oil on my face, ever. I mean I would just assume that it would make your face… oily. I’ve always been skeptical so I was excited to try this. It was so light and made my face feel super hydrated which is much needed during Winter season. I’m obsessed.

I loved this month’s bag! My favorite product? Well, it’s tie between the face oil and the liquid lipstick! If you want to try Ipsy out, click hereπŸ™‚

  1. Loving this month’s bag! Some great products in here, Pin Up is such a stunning wearable shade, and I have wanted to try the Tarte oil forever. Ren is one of my go-to skincare brands as well so would be up for trying anything from their range always. Loving Jaded too, green is everywhere right now, thanks for sharing. Kind of wish I had got this one haha x

  2. I also got the Tarte and Ciate products. The dropper bottle is so cute! I thought the lipstick would be a lot lighter of a shade but I was so happy with the actual shade it turned out to be! The Clearista Gel sounds great!!
