Ipsy September 2016 Glam Bag was all bout getting our glam on. Get rid of those jogging pants, let down your hair and make and feel beautiful! I’m sure if you looked at all of the people who received their glam bags, they weren’t all the same. So I would like to talk about the products I received and my thoughts on each one of them.
The products I received in my Ipsy September 2016 Glam Bag were; Eyeko eye do liquid liner in black, IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara in Black, Crown Brush Ombre Angle Brush, Épicé International Restorative Toner and BeFine Food Skin Care Exfoliating Cleanser.
I love the variety of products I received, and I won’t lie, receiving a good quality makeup brush was pretty awesome. So now that we know what I got, let’s get down to the reviews of each products shall we?
Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Liner in Black
I was actually quite pleased with this liquid liner. The application is amazing, and applies very dark, just how I like them liners to apply. You can take your time to reapply (I don’t know if you’re like me, but I spend half of my time on eyebrows and eyeliner), just don’t go over too often. But you shouldn’t have to, it applies on any eye shadows and will not fade because it’s not facing down. A tip: When storing liquid pens, store them upside down so that the ink goes to the felt.
IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara in Black
Ok, so the mascara was a sample, and I found the wand too long for the sample so I struggled a bit, BUT, I know regular size, it’s must easier. The mascara itself is great, it’s thick, it’s dark and it helps give length and width to your eyelashes. The want is a thicker wand, so it’s all about whether you prefer thin wands or it doesn’t really matter. It definitely is a product worth trying.
Crown Brush Ombré Angle Brush
This brush is a very, very soft brush, so if you have a powder or a product that you need to add pressure, forget about it. For what I use it for, it’s amazing and I really love this brush and so happy to have it in my collection. My use is to put bronzer on before my contouring and since I don’t want to add a lot (I’m very pale, so I do NOT want that streak) I really love the quality and I know that if I take care of it, it can last me a very long time.
Épicé International Restorative Toner
This toner is great, it does not sting your face while applying it and doesn’t dry out quickly. It helps you feeling fresh. It is hard to go into major detail since we need to give ourselves a few weeks of trying the same product when it comes to skin care, but I do recommend this as a toner.
BeFine Food Skin Care Exfoliating Cleanser
Ah, who doesn’t love an exfoliating skin care once in a while. What? You haven’t used one??? This is a must in your skin care routine, at least once a week. I always wash my face in the shower, just because I’m lazy like that. And I LOVE exfoliating my face, getting rid of dry skin and just making my face feel smooth as a baby’s face. No, seriously, it’s a must in your life! This cleanser is made with brown sugar, so the sugar melts as you exfoliate, not making it harmful for the environment and not making it harsh for your skin.
So these were my thoughts about the products of my Ipsy September 2016 Glam Bag. If you are thinking about Ipsy, it really is a fun site to work with.
