I was a little surprised this month to get my Glam Bag so early, normally it comes from about the 17th-22nd and this month it came on the 12th. I know it is the 16th but I have been a little busy and not super inspired to write anything in the last few days. (sorry my bad!)
Onto the bag, as I was walking from my mailbox to my apartment I could not remember if I had seen what the bag actually looked like. Once I opened the neon pink packing bubble envelope I remembered seeing it, now this bag is solid red with the embossing of an opera mask on it and guys, I love it. It was very masquerade to me and one of these days it is your girl’s dream to go to a masquerade party. Granted I wear glasses and hate contacts but I would suffer if I got to wear a fancy dress and one of those opera/masquerade masks.
(1): City Color Glow Pro Stellar Pressed Highlight in Nebula.
This was actually featured on the card inside as a part of a Halloween makeup look. It is a beautiful iridescent blue and it does pop quite a bit. I loved that it was called Nebula and it was a blue tone because that reminded me of Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy, don’t ask me why but that was my first thought when I saw it was called Nebula. It goes on really smoothly and the color payoff is great. Looking forward to having a reason to wear this highlighter because I think it’s going to look real cool.
(2): The Balm Take Home the Bronze Bronzer in Oliver.
Now I have a few of The Balm’s products already but I do not have any of their bronzers. This is depotable to put in a Z palette which I probably will do eventually with some of the products from my Glam Bags. Now this bronzer is a nice subtle bronze and it looks pretty good with my skin tone so I probably will wear it throughout the winter during the months when there is no such thing as sun and your tan completely leaves your body.
(3): Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Liquid Foundation in Shade R230.
I’m going to start out by saying this is not the right shade for me, it’s an okay match if I am tan but you guys know if you have been reading my blog for a while that I have really fair skin and this one is a little too much of a red undertone for me. Now let me tell you guys something else, this foundation was my first ever liquid foundation. I used Make Up For Ever foundation all through college and even after I graduated, I switched to a more cost effective and found that my skin did not like it so I switched back to Urban Decay for long wear applications and use a drug store brand for short term wear. I think that my shade in Make Up For Ever was either 110 or 115. I cannot actually remember and I can’t tell from the website, I would have to see it in person. Love the foundation though so I am excited even to have a mini size of it to try again.
(4): K Voss NYC Strawberry Peppermint Lip Balm.
Never heard of this brand and normally I am not a fan of glossy lip balms because it makes everything sticky, that is part of the reason I don’t wear lip gloss anymore. I was a teenager of the mid to late 2000’s and we all went through a lip gloss phase. There were a lot of beauty and fashion nightmares of my age group, sorry world. I will give this a chance; I don’t know how I feel about the scent combination either but I am going to give this a try because how can you say you don’t like something if you have never tried it.
(5): INMO Eyeshadow Brush
It’s the same every time I get a brush, I love brushes and this one is really cool it has a very interesting handle that actually makes it easier to hold so I am really looking forward to trying this one out as well. I don’t know if there is much else I can say about it beyond, per usual I love brushes.
Overall like last month I loved the bag. It was fun and it had a lot of products that I am excited to try in it. If you want to read my other unbaggings for April, May, June, July, August, and September click on the month!
One of these days I am going to do two things, one, do a full face look with all of the products that I have gotten and two, create a whole folder just for ipsy because this is like a quarter of my posts on this blog currently.
