Today I’m sharing my Glossybox and then I tried the Ipsy Glam Bag for the first time! I’m going to try and keep it short and sweet and not review each product in detail, because that can get a bit long-winded. If you have any questions about a specific product, be sure to leave it in the comments and I will respond to you!
Absolute Perfume Stick in “42” (full size!) | European Wax Center Exfoliant and Body Lotion Foil Packets | Sebastian Volupt Spray | Etre Belle Collagen & Aloe Vera Hydro Mask | My Prime Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer | Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact
This box was a big let down for me. First of all, only one full-sized product is definitely not something I’m used to, especially when I usually get 2-3 full sized products per box. I really enjoy the scent of the perfume stick – it is very citrus-y and perfect for summer. The Sebastian product is nice, as I’m always looking for products to help with volume. The cushion compact thing is weird, and the color is a bit too dark for me, so it’s pretty much useless. I haven’t tried the face mask, foil packets, or the mattifying lotion yet. The box also came with a coupon for a free wax for first time guests at European Wax Centers, which felt a little weird to me, because they already offer that without a coupon. I don’t get it. I honestly felt like it was my worst Glossybox to date, and you know that I am a huge Glossybox fan. It just felt…. I don’t know, thrown together.
I have never tried the Ipsy Glam Bag before, but I am so glad that I did. This seriously blew me away. I wasn’t expecting much, as it is only $10 a month. But to get two full size products and things that I actually like and will use? Score! The lipstick is super flattering, the nail polish is so fun. I usually would turn up my nose at a perfume sample, but since it was such a big rollerball in a nice exotic vanilla scent, I actually really liked it. Finally, I just love the Anastasia brand for brow products, and I needed a brow gel, so major score here for me. And isn’t the little makeup bag adorable? Perfect for traveling with small items (definitely not big enough for me to carry a day’s worth of makeup, haha)! So basically, you need to sign up for Ipsy. Go do that here. You won’t regret it.
