Rebel Rebel is this month’s Glam Bag, I love the design of it- check it out!
Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Cheeks Blush in Peach Pink ($15.00) was the first item we pulled from our bag. The first thing I noticed about this brand is that they’re cruelty free meaning they’ve never tested their products on animals and that fact right there is a plus in my book. This blush lasts all day and has a shiny somewhat sparkly finish to it. I like that because it not only adds some subtle color to my cheeks it also attracts the light so my cheeks glow.
theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in Matt Moskowitz (Palette is $42.00) was the second item we tried and firstly I have to say that I LOVE the packaging to this item. It’s like a little book! You can put the product on lightly or heavily; so if you don’t want it to go on as dark as it appears in the photo just lightly brush it on. It has a matte finish to it. The color we received (Matt Moskowitz) is actually a matte plum color. Some eyeshadows I have tried tend to powdery flake off into my eyes when I’m applying it but this does not; it has a velvety smooth texture to it.
Delectable by Cake Beauty Everything Balm ($16.00) had me very confused when I first pulled this out of the bag. I thought “everything balm? What the heck is that?”. But this product is true to its description. According to the website this balm can be used to moisturize skin, repair damaged cuticles, help seal split ends, brighten dark circles and dark spots, plump lips and so forth. On Ipsy’s website they always add a little “awesome spin” blurb and they said that you can add a powder to this product to create a lip or cheek stain or some shimmer for a body glow. I tried adding some of the blush from this month’s bag to this balm and applied it to my lips. It created the most beautiful lip stain and it lasted ALL day!
Jouer Highlighter in Tiare ($22.00). So I’ve spent a lot of time in search of the perfect highlighter; I’m still pretty new to highlighting and so far haven’t been a huge fan of the products I’ve tried. This product looked way too light to me when I first tried it BUT I was wrong and I truly love it. It’s very lightweight and can be applied before or after foundation. It’s low maintenance and can easily be applied with your fingertips it goes on super creamy and lasts all day.
The last item we pulled from our bag was the Royal & Langnickel MODA™ Crease/Smudge Brush. I love getting new brushes and if it’s soft and easy to clean I love it even more. The brush has a no slip grip and can be used to apply concealers as well as eyeliners and cream or powder products. Another great plus about this product is that it is made 100% vegan so if you have sensitive skin this is a great product. I personally suffer from eczema and sometimes a more coarse brush irritates the eczema and makes it flair up which obviously is terrible when you have eczema around the eyes; luckily this brush doesn’t irritate my skin.
