I just realized that I completely forgot to blog about my January Ipsy glam bag! I had deleted the photos and everything from my iphone so I took some new photos of them and hope that’s alright with you guys! So I don’t have the pretty picture of the metallic pink bubble mailer envelope that gets me so happy buuuut you can click on December’s Ipsy bag and take a look at the mailer if you haven’t seen it yet.
I really enjoyed this bag and liked that the total focus wasn’t on just make up since I am kind of over loaded and overwhelmed with more make up than I can play with in one session! The outside of the make up bag is cute, but a bit simple just like the other bags. I’d like to see a pattern on the outside or a bright fun color instead of the grey, and navy blue maybe in the future? I’m sure they have great things in store for the new year and the make up bags 😃 So this bag, as I mentioned before, is a sheer navy blue on the outside, but is a nice size and taller than most bags.
Of course this little beauty secret of mine is in my cosmetics bag…
Josie Maran argan oil is 100% pure organic and great for my skin, hair, and nails so this goes with me everywhere! I have one in my bathroom, purse, bedroom, and nightly bag 😃 I love the sample size because it isn’t available for sale in stores, and is much smaller and lighter for my purse than the 15ml ($14) online. When I run low, I refill it from my deluxe sized Josie Maran argan oil!
Next I received a SOHO eyeliner brush. This beauty goes for $7.99 on their site.
I didn’t really need this so I did find a use for it…at night after cleansing my face I use this brush to apply argan oil to my lashes and under/around my eyes and brow area! A nice little beauty secret 😉
I was OOOber excited to try this product out! I love love love the shade, it is Hot mama from theBalm cosmetics blush and multi-tasker!
I love that not only is it a gorgeous blush color, but it can also become an eyeshadow, AND a highlighter! It’s got a cute magnetic flap closure like a book. It is a decent sized sample that should last fairly long just like the meet matt(e) grey eye shadow I received in a previous Ipsy bag. Full size is $20.
(UPDATE! thank you Michal Michelle Ramos for catching my mistake about this item being in my Ipsy bag! It was late and I was sleepy, trying to retake all my pictures and somehow I must have grabbed this into the mix and taken its photo as well and blogged about it for the bag. I’m so sorry about any confusion it may have caused! It was from one of my other box subscriptions. 😃 have a nice day!)
This Pacifica Tuscan blood orange mini body butter is listed for $7 on their website.
I’ve actually sampled a sampler package from Pacifica through one of my previous Bloom Ambassador boxes and this was one of the products that were included. I LOVE the scent. It reminds me of the lotion, used at me and my husband’s favorite spa back in Monterey! It was so refreshing, relaxing, and fragrantly delicious, like peeling into a fresh sweet blood orange. Mmm… So another beauty secret I have is as a nice daily treat for your hands, is to use a generous dollop of this, along with 4-5 drops of 100% argan oil on to your hands and let them soak up all the amazing benefits!
I am also now a fan of Nailtini after my last one that was tucked in my glam bag, so when I got this one in bloody mary I was a happy girl! It is a beautiful classic red that reminds me of a bloody mary, it makes me crave one…hmm…
Last but not last is a hair product! Nice surprise, BigSexyHair Spray & Play. (If any of you are Fallout fans, then you’ll understand…this reminds me of the perk you can choose when you level up called “spray and pray” lol)
This is a volumizing spray available for purchase at Ulta.
Finally, here is a screenshot I took of my email with my promo codes which is always fun to receive in case I want to purchase one of the items I received!
