February 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag

Super-short post today about my February Glam Bag from Ipsy, so I can get back to other posts in my queue.

My Ipsy Glam Bag this month contained:


Baby Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral

  • I am really loving tre’StiQue’s products through Ipsy, and hope that they continue to send me their sticks through my glam bags.
  • The colour is perhaps a bit more orange than I’d normally purchase, but it actually works on me I think.
  • The colour blends really nicely with fingertips (I didn’t bother trying one of my blending brushes) and has a nice matte-finish despite being a stick.
  • I don’t know if the colour LASTED very long though – it blended a bit too well perhaps, and wasn’t super-dramatic.

Trust Fund Beauty

Nail Polish in I’m Kind Of A Big Deal

  • The polish bottle is really pretty looking…
  • But the colour is SO cotton-candy pink, which I’m not super-keen on.
  • After a day the colour on my fingertips was already chipping – though I didn’t use a top-coat.
  • The polish dries much more smoothly than it brushes on, which is a bit streaky.

Dr. Brandt


  • While this seems to be a nice consistency, I found the exfoliant a bit too rough.
  • The container seemed mostly empty when I received it – though the tube was sealed…
  • It has a strange medical smell which I don’t care for.

Smashbox Cosmetics

Photo Finish Primer Oil

  • Goes on quite smoothly, though doesn’t have the nice finish of my other primer.
  • Oil soaks in quickly, no oily look
  • No noticeable smell

Promise Organic

Ultra Moisturizing Argan Creme Facial Lotion

  • Seems to go quite far, though takes a while to feel like it’s soaked in
  • Has  a really strange dish-washing soap lemon scent which isn’t unpleasant, but is strange
  • When the lotion dries it feels stiff on the skin, not particularly moisturising.
