Ipsy Glam Bag| March 2014

My loves,

I was very happy to come home last week to find my ever so lovely pink package from Ipsy on my kitchen counter! It’s always very exciting coming home to new product. This months bag was all about getting ready for a vacation or simply getting ready for Spring. From a selection of 11 products the Ipsy Glam team carefully selected 5 products for each Ipsy Memeber determined by their Ipsy profile. This month seems to have a good selection.

Exotic beaches or a simple stay-cation – what beautiful destination is your March Glam Bag getting ready for?

Glam Bag Products:

Be A Bombshell| Bora Bora Eyeshadow Quad Full Size $16.00

“The Bora Bora Eyeshadow Quad contains a highly pigmented long lasting formula for all day wear. To use as an eyeliner, wet the tip of your brush and dip end into the shadow and apply on lash line.”

IMG_2604 IMG_2608 IMG_2630Not my favorite Eyeshadow Quad from Be A Bombshell to be perfectly honest but it definitely has good pigment. I really don’t understand the teal blue in this mix of these 4 shadows. Usually with Quad packages the colours flow nicely where as this teal blue sticks out like a sore thumb. I would never wear teal blue eyeshadow. The brown and the gold I will definitely wear but the teal and copper will never been seen on my eye lids.

Klorane| Smoothing and Relaxing Patches with Soothing Cornflower 7 Piece $18.00

“Rich in soothing cornflower extract, decongesting arnica and chamomile, Klorane Smoothing and relaxing patches with soothing cornflower effectively reduce signs of tiredness from lack of sleep, a long day or sun exposure and instantly soothes and refreshes the eyes. Dark circles and puffiness are visibly reduced and the eye contour looks fresh and bright. Cool patches in refrigerator before use to increase effectiveness and enhance its refreshing effect.”

IMG_2626 IMG_2784 IMG_2793I actually love trying new eye treatments. These eye patches from Klorane were nice and soothing for the under eyes and very comfortable to wear for the 20 minutes your supposed to have them on. I’m not sure I noticed a crazy difference in my under eye area but then again I don’t really have puffiness. They are even greater when you store them in the fridge, nice and cool and refreshing.

Nicole by OPI| ‘On What Grounds? Full Size $7.00

“Nicole by OPI launches Roughles (“ruffles”) – 4 new textured nail lacquers featuring speckled, pastel shades of purple, pink, turquoise and yellow. When the lacquer dries, Roughles lacquers reveal a unique pebbled finish. For the perfect matte effect, skip the top coat!”

IMG_2621 IMG_2623 IMG_2783Love the colour of this nail polish, not a huge fan of the finish. I don’t really like my nail polish to have texture to it. This polish doesn’t require top coat which I actually don’t like because I love shiny polished nails. But I do really really love the colour. And Nicole by OPI is usually fantastic nail polish.

bareMinerals| Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready Full Size $18.00

“Make an impact with Marvelous Moxie™ Lipstick. Creamy, super-saturated, ultra-pigmented color glides on like butter for full coverage in a rich satin finish. Lips look fuller and more voluptuous. An infusion of minerals revitalizes lips for a healthy-looking pout, while a moisture-loaded hydrating complex helps to nourish and condition with Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids for supple, baby-soft smoothness. All the while, an encapsulated vitamin A, C and E complex helps to deliver antioxidant defense, so you’re ready for anything—and everything. Learn more about Marvelous Moxie™”

IMG_2612 IMG_2617 IMG_2739This was by far my favorite product of all. I absolutely love this lipstick from bareMinerals and this shade of lipstick. It’s definitely a colour I would wear on a regular basis. It applies with ease and looks natural, perfect for an every day lip. The lipstick lasts all day with minimal touch-ups, absolutely love it. I will for sure be buying the full size when I run out of this one!

I very much enjoyed this month’s Glam Bag. Loved trying a new eye treatment, I always love receiving a new bottle of nail polish, and I found my new favorite shade of lipstick. Probably won’t use the Quad Eyeshadow but 3 out 4 is pretty good so I won’t complain! I wasn’t a huge fan of the bag itself but the product made up for that!

What did you think of this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag?

  1. I got all the same products this month, too! I agree about the finish of the nail polish and the teal shadow from the quad. Excited to try out the eye treatments though!

    Great lipstick colour, must try that. The polish is a nice summer colour and would be great on the toes.
