Mesh Protectors and Ipsy's Glam Bag
Today we have the cool beauty post I was talking about the other day. The reason it was forthcoming was because I had to wait to receive my first Ipsy Glam Bag! It happened to come later that day, so here it is! I have something else to talk about before we get to the Glam Bag though, so let's get started.
First up, I had purchases some mesh makeup brush protectors on Amazon recently. I had heard good things about them, and I was getting tired of my makeup brushes fanning out after washing. I washed my brushes the other night and then put the mesh protectors on afterwards. After they dried, I took off the mesh protectors, and wa-lah! my makeup brushes didn't fan out! Yay. I definitely recommend these! They are so inexpensive on Amazon and I cut mine in half as I don't need to cover the entire brush, just the top half...where the actual brush is.
Secondly, and this one is even more exciting, was that I received my first Ipsy Glam Bag in the mail yesterday! I excite! I had only heard about Ipsy recently, and when I found out that they send you a glam bag every month with a handful of samples specifically tailored to you, all for $10 even, I was on board! You just go to their website and click on the "Get Started" button. This process creates your beauty profile, based on skin, eye, & hair color, preferences, and a host of other questions (Like 11 or 12, and they're all in picture form. You just click on pictures.) and based on that profile, they will send you sample products based on that! After I received mine, I checked the hashtag on Instagram and there were so many different combination! This subscription is so cool, so if you're interested, hit up their website!
The contents of my first Glam Bag. It's was like Xmas up in here you guys!
Sample one (for me) was this body scrub by balancedguru called Scrubme Nice and Gritty. Can't wait to try that out on my day off.
This is a roll-on perfume--something I noticed that pretty much all the glam bags had--so I wore it to work yesterday. It's a wonderful scent called pure vanilla (I'm pretty sure it's from Sephora's Lavanila line) that wasn't overpowering and stuck with me throughout my 10 hour shift! Impressive.
This is a nail polish by R.B. Shimmer called My Life's Porpoise. Get it? Play on words. Porpoises are gray in color. Heh.
This is a long-lasting matte liquid lipstick by Meet Matt(e) Hughes. The color is called Committed and I also wore it to work yesterday. It lasted for hours! Impressive as well.
Last, but not least, I received a set of tweezers (I also saw several of these in other bags) by Emite Make Up. I used it to pluck some wayward hairs--as is my custom--from my eyebrows before I put on my makeup yesterday. They worked well.
Soooo, overall, I love it! So far so good, and for an even $10/month, you can't really go wrong.
I'll post next month's after it comes.
