Hello and happy Sunday. Today we are going to explore and review the contents of the Ipsy Glam Bag I got for the month of March 2019. Let me just start by saying that I loved the actual bag everything came in and I almost felt tempted to give it to my sister by decided to keep it instead. What can I say? I love an uplifting quote every now and then.
This would have been right up my alley a few years ago. Now, not so much. I would have enjoyed a neutral tone or perhaps a red a lot more than I did this one if I’m being completely honest. Besides this isn’t really pigmented at all, so it is more like a lip topper. I’m wearing it in the picture below, as a topper for a matte lipstick from Colour Pop. I got the mini version that weighs 1.8 mL. The full-size version weighs 2.7 mL and is the equivalent of $19.49. I’m guessing no.
Add all the adjectives you want, but I’m almost certain that a few years ago I got a highlighter from Urban Decay with this exact name and a similar shade. Granted, this one is way more golden, and it makes my skin look absolutely gorgeous, but still, no one likes a copycat. The sample I got weighs 2.5g, and I couldn’t find the contents of the full-size version. I did find that it is $26, which we already know, is a big no for me.
You won’t be able to see where I applied this lotion (hint: the bum bum), but I can tell you that my body thoroughly enjoyed the scent and the feel of it. To me, this smells like the beach, like going somewhere warm and sunny and getting a suntan. I got a very generous 24mL purse-size tube, which costs $10. The full-size version, which has ten times as much content is $45. I would stick with the travel-size, which contains 75mL and is $20.
What’s up with that name? Seriously, I hate it, and I think it makes me reach for this mascara way less often than I should just so that I don’t have to see it. The tube itself looks cheap, with that animal print and the lilac color. Besides, I don’t see this doing anything more than adding some color and length to my eyelashes, which is what every mascara out there does. The travel-size version I got weighs 4.5mL and is $12, which means I could buy at least two full-size Push-Up Angel tubes from Maybelline for this same price. Guess what I’m buying instead of the Maneater?
This isn’t Ipsy’s fault at all, but I’m currently trying to steer clear of peel-off masks. I tried this once and I think in the picture we can see that my skin looks glowy and healthy and that this isn’t just because of the highlighter. I got a sample size, but oddly enough I couldn’t find this online. I guess they made it especially for Ipsy or something. The full-size version weighs 85mL and is $23.
I would clearly choose my Bum Bum cream as today’s highlight, but I’d like to know what your choice would be. Let me know in the comments.
Love, Miss Camila
