Ipsy August 2016 Glam Bag

Hello darlings!!

I have been on vacay all week and I am loving ittttt. I've gotten so much blog work done which always makes me really happy. So many exciting things are going to be happening for this little blog of mine! Squeal!!

This month's ipsy Glam Bag is my fave to date! How stunning is the makeup bag they sent me? It's truly a work of art! The colors are so delicate and the beautiful woman applying makeup! *swoon* It's like a dream. I'm totally saving this bag!

First up, Ciaté London Paint Pot in Spinning Teacups. This delicate ladylike lavender shade is perfect for summer and spring. It's romantic, whimsical, and it's totally within this month's dream theme. I applied two coats letting it dry between each coat for 5 minutes. I then applied my favorite Essie topcoat and I'm done. The end result was perfect.

As you may already know, I'm truly obsessed with black eyeliner. I wear it every. single. day. It's a must and staple in my makeup bag. I am very picky though about my eyeliners and would never just purchase one at the store without trying it. I love them bold, creamy, and easy to glide on. When I received the Rodial Smokey Eye Pen in Black, I was super pleased with the formula. It's heavily pigmented, lasts for hours, and it applies very easily. It's a hit for me!

Next up is something I desperately needed considering I'm already out of highlighter. Don't you hate when so many of your products get used up at the same time? I go from just needed one refill to needing a whole new makeup bag. Anyway! I am a huge fan of NYX makeup and have so many of their lip glosses, primer, and powders. I'm so happy that I finally got to try their Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam. It's extremely pigmented and a little pea-sized dot definitely goes a long way! The picture down below was wayyyyy too much! (Ignore my super dry hands!) The highlighter provides the perfect glow and it's an amazing product for the price. It also lasted all day for me. Another hit for me! Yay!

I have never heard of the next one and I also haven't tried it yet but it does smell amazing. I love leave-in conditioners so IT Hair Care 12-in-one Amazing Leave-In Treatment is right up my alley. The 12 things it promises to do: get rid of brittle ends, tangles, and frizz; add body, shine, and health; repair dry and damaged hair; protect color-treated hair, against heat, split ends, and breakage. Sounds pretty amazing, huh? Let's see how I like this baby!

Last up is a fave of mine... Josie Maran's Whipped Mud Mask in Vanilla Apricot. I've been a huge fan of Josie products for yearsssss. I always keep her argan oil handy! I love how her products are natural and work really well on my skin. As I get older, I am trying to shy away from chemicals and switch over to more natural products. There's a long story behind this and I'll be sharing soon. This mask smelled and felt amazing. After I rinsed it off my face, my skin was smooth and hydrated. This was her first attempt at creating a mask and she succeeded! It does everything it promises to do which is "clarifies, refines, firms, nourishes and soothes." With 100% pure argan oil, Moroccan rhassoul clay formed from volcanic ash which detoxifies and tones skin, what's not to love?

Have you tried any of these products? What was in your ipsy glam bag?
