Hello beautiful people, today I have my review on the January Ipsy glam bag I received on Monday! Ipsy is a monthly beauty bag subscription $10 a month for U.S.A residents and $16.75 Canadian residents with shipping costs.
You can check their site here:
Overall I am super happy with the products I received and am going to get some decent usage out of them, shall we?
This eco-beauty by La Fresh Group is a highly natural, biodegradable, cruelty free moisturizer created in California. Using collagen-producing peptides, super-hydrating hyaluronic acid, cucumber, aloe, vitamin B, C & E and an anti-aging botanical complex including maqui berry, licorice root, ginko biloba leaf, grape seed & hickory bark to help bring back fresher happier skin, helping with fine wrinkles on your face!
I’ve actually only tried this on my hands incase my skin reacts to it and it seems to be fine so I am bring it to Mexico with me! Being a biodregradable formula making it safer for the ocean (and my skin!) being cruelty free and highly natural are total bonuses! All around I think i’ll be repurchasing this depending how it works throughout my trip.
This eco-beauty moisturizer retails for $40 and can be found here:
Next I received this Pacifica eyeshadow in the shade “Ethereal”. It isn’t very pigmented which is a bummer because it is quite pretty. A fellow blogger did mention using a setting spray on her brush helped strengthen the pigment. ( I don’t have a setting spray at the moment though!)
Looking at the website i’m assuming this is a sample size. One shade from one of the palette’s they have here:
Next eyeshadow I have is this loose powder by bellapierre cosmetics in the shade “Whesek” <– haha nooo idea how that is suppose to be promounced. This eyeshadow blends really nicely and leaves an iridescent finish. If i counted properly there is 56 shades which is craazaaay.This product retails for $14.99 and this is a full product. You can find it here: http://www.bellapierrecosmetics.ca/shop/index.php/mineral-makeup/eyes/shimmer-powders-1.html
Next I have this lip conditioning treating which is smposively “lip enhancing” by Jouer.
I was excited to pull this out of my ipsy bag because I have seen other bloggers rave about it, however. . I was highly disappointed when it was just a thick, perfumey super glossy formula that my hair was seemingly interested in being friends with, ending up dragging the stickiness across my face which was a no-no.
This is a half sample sized product. Full product retails for $16.00 You can find it here:
Last was this All Over Brush by Elizabeth Mott, i’m excited to have a cute brush in my collection! I’m sure i’ll get some great use out of this. Seems well made and very soft ^.^
This product is full size and retails for $9.99 and can be found here:
The two full products I received in this bag total up to $24.00. Ontop of that I got three great samples and a cute makeup bag ^.^ I say well worth it! What did you get in your Ipsy bag this month?

Thanks for reading everyone ^.^ Talk to you soon!
The month of October I received my very first LipMonthly subscription. I had only watched a video or two before jumping on the website to order my very own. Not knowing really what to expect (besides perhaps a bunch of lip products?!) I was happy to see they had sent me 5 different products!
My first product revealed was this noyah cherry lip balm, which glides nicely onto your lips as if it were a stick of butter. The familiar cherry scent isn’t too strong, but quite subtle and lovely. This product is full size, worth $3.99.
Next I pull out this lip sugar by Starlooks. Basically just a brown sugar mixed with a bit of oil, very simple to make at home. I definitely would never purchase something like this, but it will be interesting to try out. This is a full size product and you can buy any 5 for $10.
Next I have this lip shimmer by Devine in the shade “pinot noir” <– I’m such a wino, i literally love this thing simply because of the colour name hehe. This lip shimmer is very smooth and lush ❤ This product is full size, costing $4.95.
I’m not really in need of pencil liners, I personally never really use them and Ipsy likes to include them quite often, I feel. This eyeliner by L.A. Girl is in the shade Navy <– No idea when I will use this. Maybe i’ll find someone who could get some use out of it. This product costs $3.00 and is cruelty free, which is rad! ❤
So my last and most favorite item I received in this LipMonthly bag is this lovely nude lipstick by JCats. I personally never have worn a nude lip, and I honestly slightly obsessed with this colour. This nude lip works so well with my fair skin. I’M SHOCKED, I AM TURNING INTO A LOVER OF THE NUDE LIP. Do you like nude lips?
This is a full size product at the cost of $2.99, they have sooo many shades and this applies very nicely!
