September Ipsy Glam Bag Plus

I’ve been getting the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for a couple of months now and so far I’ve been really impressed by the products I’ve received.

This month’s box included:

  • Nomad Cosmetics Berlin Underground eyeshadow palette
  • Glamglow Tropical Cleanser
  • Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in Midnight
  • CiatΓ© London Extraordinary translucent power
  • Wander Beauty Frame Your Face Micro Brow Pencil in dark brown

My box arrived yesterday and since today is my day off I decided to play around with some of the products, specifically the eyeshadow palette and eyebrow pencil.

I had to use a different palette for an initial crease shade but the remaining six colors were all from the palette.

Overall I’m very impressed by the pigmentation, the blendability and how approachable this palette seemed.

The brow pencil is fine, I personally prefer bigger tips because I just use it to fill in my brows but overall I was able to use it and I liked the way my brows came out. The pigmentation was great, not too much and it didn’t feel waxy

I’m not sure if I’ll try out the remaining products or gift them since I already have so many of those products in rotation.

I’m very happy with this month’s box and would definitely recommend it!

If you’re interested in trying it here’s my code you can use to sign up, or you can sign up on your own.

I will try to keep posting initial reviews as my boxes come in!

Makeup Revolution Decadence

I picked up the Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Decadence a while back when they were buy 2 get 1 free at Ulta but I hadn’t used it until today.

I love the color scheme and based on previous palettes I have I was looking forward to using this.

The palette didn’t disappoint at all! The colors are pigmented and easy to blend. There is kickback from the shades but I personally love that so it doesn’t bother me at all.

Overall I’m really happy with how this palette performed and am looking forward to using it again and again!

Mini Jawbreaker Palette

It’s Friday!

I was definitely a little scared of the colors when I got the Mini Jawbreaker palette, especially Hot Fudge which was the only brown but it was a cool brown, I don’t do well with cool tones, but I was determined to use it!

I wanted to try the purples but, it’s red shirt Friday so I went with this to avoid clashing.

The formula is amazing, as always. The shimmer packed such a punch when I applied it with a wet brush and it has a beautiful shift of orange in it.
Given the cool toned brown I knew I’d have to pair it with a browner lipstick and Colourpop Grundge was the perfect tone!

I can’t wait to use this more and to dig into those purples!

And for some reason, when I opened up the palette and saw the cool toned brown and bright orange my mind instantly went to Converse! I’m sure the star played a part of it too

Shop my stash

I’m still going strong with sticking to a handful of palettes I selected for the month and, fortunately, I selected one that fit in perfect for today’s theme.

I decided to shop my stash and only use products I’ve had for a while but haven’t touched. Here’s what I used

  • Too Faced original Chocolate Soleil bronzer
  • Too Faced Natural Love palette
  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation in 310
  • Lorac Blush
  • Tarte Shape Tape
  • Colourpop super satin lip in 951
  • Anastasia brow pomade (this is one of two things I use and didn’t have anything else to use)
  • Becca Highlight in Opal (not pictured)

Overall I’m happy with my look and I’m glad I got to use old products I used to love
