Hey hey, it’ MJ,
How is it already December, my Christmas break started on Friday afternoon so I am off for a few weeks and I was ready for a break. So here we are with the last Glam Bag unbagging of this year. I am looking forward to see what happens next year with IPSY’s offerings. I know they now have the Glam Bag X which is quarterly which will be interesting, I will not be getting it and I think it replaced the Glam Bag Ultimate which is fine, I didn’t get that one either.
I feel like I don’t have so much to say at the beginning of this post just because I don’t have many thoughts in my head at this moment, it’s been a trying year y’all a trying year. I never thought that when I talk about a mask collection it would be anything besides sheet masks but here we are.
It’s really cute and feels very different than the Glam Bag Plus this month, it feels more like I would expect it to feel by the pictures, honestly it feels like a dog toy that we had for our dog Duke, it was an elephant with almost a sheep like texture, I like the fact that it’s a blush pink almost crème but I am not sure how I feel about it being fuzzy.
The Crème Shop Mask Duo:
I chose this one because I like the Crème Shop when it comes to sheet masks and it came as a set of two one called A Snowman Story with a bunch of really good things that really help with skin hydration and lets be real this time of year with the cold and the wind you need all the hydration you can get. The second is called Deer Diary which is collagen and berry which is good for moisturizing and again at this time of year you need that. I love sheet masks and I need to get back into using them because I have several and I like using them but just finding 20 minutes to turn my brain off at this moment just isn’t something I can seem to do.
Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser:
I really enjoy Murad but I have never had one of their cleansers and I am really excited to try this one, I like trying new cleaners and moisturizers because it helps me find items that really work for my skin and I am hoping that this one works for my skin concerns and sensitivity level. I really don’t have much else to say about it because until I try a cleanser I don’t really know what it’s going to be like.
It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara:
I got a mascara last month from Eyeko and I hated when I actually got to try it. I am working through all my mascara samples at the moment and I am using one from MAC and I would honestly buy a full size of it if it wasn’t $24 because that’s so much for mascara and I have like a billion sample sized products. I am excited to give this one a try because it has a long brush and according to the websites description it is volumizing which is really cool because that tends to be the mascara that I am drawn to. Also according to the description it has some really good ingredients in it that protect and nourish your lashes so I am for sure going to give this one a try but I have some other ones to try first. Some of the reviews say it clumps but let’s be honest I feel like most do or I’m just really bad at mascara.
Beauty For Real Lip Gloss + Shine in Nudist
I don’t like lip gloss, I wore a lot of lip gloss in the mid-2000’s because that was the style before liquid lipstick was really a thing to pre-teen and teenage me. This has some sort of mint in it because it tingles a little bit and that’s a little strange. I put it on just to see what it looked and felt like and it’s sticky and honestly for me it’s not as shiny as they claim it to be, it looks like I am wearing lip balm and not much else. There are a few makeup items that I rarely or never use and lip gloss is one of them. Some people love lip gloss on over a lipstick but I don’t like the feeling of it and that’s totally fine, if you like it we can agree to disagree.
Lasting Smiles Peppermint Crème Lip Balm:
I have like a thousand lip balms around my apartment but I am never mad about getting another one because I inevitably lose them and then get more and then find the one I lost. I like the fact that it’s organic and cruelty free, I am not going to open it yet because I already have several open but I am looking forward to using this one because tis the season for the need for lip balm not only because of the weather but also having to wear a mask all day at work.
So that’s the last Glam Bag for the year, this year has had so many great products that I have absolutely loved and some that have missed the mark but if you get 60 samples in a year it’s going to be almost impossible to get every single one be amazing. Overall I like this bag, except for the lip gloss but that happens. I am excited for next year and new products so here’s to 12 more posts next year.
If you want to know everything I have gotten this year, except February because that was a lost month you can: January, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, and November.
I hope everyone has a great start to the week and I will be back mid-week with another post.
