What’s in the bag?
- PEEK Beauty nom nom natural lip plumping balm in “Miracle”
- Smashbox X-Rated Mascara
- BellaPierre Cosmetics Nude Gel Lip Liner Pencil
- Slmissglam Small Contour W07 Brush
- Etat Libre d’Orange Remarkable People Fragrance
Woohoo! Ipsy review time 🙂 The bag itself is okay. I prefer the purple version that they also gave out this month though. Plus, I like to use make-up bags with zippers since I feel like I could stuff more products in them without having to worry that they’ll slip out.
PEEK Beauty nom nom natural lip plumping balm in “Miracle”
Ok so this balm is very sheer. It’s definitely not a lip product I would wear out because I like to have more of a natural colored tint for an everyday use. It does smell really good though, kinda minty. It wasn’t very moisturizing but it did make my lips feel tingly when I first put it on… maybe it was the plumping part? My lips felt fuller but I couldn’t see much of a difference.
Smashbox X-Rated Mascara
Hands down… this is my favorite product this month! I’m obsessed with trying new mascaras and this one was a hit for me. I felt that it really did make my lashes more volumized. What I did to achieve the look in the picture above was I curled my lashes, put on 2 coats of the mascara, let it dry, curl again then put on one last coat. Love it! I may just have to purchase the full size version.
BellaPierre Cosmetics Nude Gel Lip Liner Pencil
I love this lip liner! The color was on point on for me. It’s compliments my natural lip color so I was ecstatic about that. It goes on very opaque too… Great product!
Slmissglam Small Contour W07 Brush
This brush definitely gets an A+ for presentation because it’s SO cute! I love that the tips of the bristles are pink and I adore the rhinestone detail. It’s very soft so I will probably use it more as a blending brush than for actual contouring since I usually like to use a firmer brush to contour.
Etat Libre d’Orange Remarkable People Fragrance
The scent is on the stronger side and although it smells pretty good, it’s not for me. I like more of the flowery and romantic scents rather than the fruity/woodsy kinds. Does that make sense? Lol. Let’s just say, I’ll probably use it as a room spray instead. I wish you can smell the scent through the computer because I suck at describing how perfumes smell! Lol. Any way, the full size bottle is $149.00! Cray cray.
Overall, I wasn’t in love with this month’s glam bag buuut I didn’t hate it! As always, trying new beauty products is totally worth the $10 every month. If you want to subscribe to Ipsy, click here!

The Smashbox mascara looks like such a great product, your lashes look ah-mazing! I love that it’s a deep black and you can definitely see the volume it creates, without being clumpy; I’ll definitely have to try this one! I was a little bummed that you didn’t see a difference with the Peek plumper because upon seeing the photo, that was the one that caught my eye first, I love the packaging! Thanks so much for sharing your IPSY products with us and I hope you’re having a great start to your Monday so far, beauty!
Thanks Jalisa!! And right?! The balm packaging is SO cute and the color looks great! I’ll have to try it again. Hope you have a wonderful Monday love!! <3

I’m a die hard fan of Benefit’s They’re Real mascara! But your eyes look amazing in that picture so I may need to give it a go with a new mascara =) so hard to stray from the usual lol
Ooh I heard good things about that mascara! And girl, I totally agree! I never would try new products if it weren’t for Ipsy either cause I usually stick to what works for me!! Haha xoxo
