Hey hey, it’s MJ,
Here we are nearing the end of February and I cannot believe that, it’s been a crazy long month even though it is the shortest month of the year.
I don’t really have much to say before this post because I do one every month, literally every month and I have already posted my Glam Bag Plus which if you want to read just click on the words.
Whirlwind month has been a whirlwind so let’s just jump right on in.
It is the opposite colorway of the GB+ with a red background and blush pink hearts and the heart zipper pull. All of that is super fun and adorable, who doesn’t love holiday branding?
Alright before I get into this, this month kind of missed the mark for me in products so just bear with me as I run through them. This is not going to be as optimistic a post as my usual IPSY posts. I mean, they can’t all be winners.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask:
This is one product that I am super interested in, I love a good sleeping mask. I really just love a good moisturizer, especially this time of year when everything is super dry and the wind is a thing that makes your skin feel like sandpaper. I like the fact that it’s an overnight mask
MAC Prep+Prime Fix +:
I have heard really good things about MAC’s Fix+ so this one is another thing out of my bag that I am interested in. I like a good setting spray and maybe this will convince me that I need to go buy actual setting spray, I doubt it because I usually just get setting spray in my Glam Bags. I wear makeup daily so a good setting spray is always something that I need in my makeup arsenal.
Peek Beauty Eye Will Say eyeshadow in Wednesday:
The color is nice, the packaging is a little weird, it’s a fun shade though so I can’t fault the packaging too much. I have a lot of single eyeshadows now and I don’t think I have any that are this color. So that’s a plus in my book, do I wear a lot of eyeshadow? Not as much as I used to, the pandemic changed my beauty routine and how much money I spend on makeup, I enjoy it still but it’s not a fixture in my life the same way it was before 2020.
Three Ships Dew Drops Mushroom Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C Serum:
I have so much serum, like so much serum. I like a travel size though and I’ll find a use for this one. I promise. I don’t really like I have much to say about it though, I want to say more but it’s a serum and most serums are nice, but I can’t tell the difference between them in my beauty routine. Sorry, I just don’t.
Treslúce Beauty Intenso Liner in Royal:
It’s blue eyeliner, the 90’s called, they want their liner back. I will never use this, flat out never, a blue eyeliner is just not up my street; not even a little bit actually. That is nothing against the brand, it’s just not a product that I will use. Will I keep it for the next few years because I feel bad about throwing it away? Yes, I will but it will never be something that I reach for unless I am doing a Halloween look. I don’t reach for eyeliner though so that’s always fun.
So, there were some hits and misses in this bag and that’s expected, not every bag can be perfect. I just wish that on their beauty quiz or something you could say I don’t want this kind of product. There was a survey a few years ago where that was a question asked and then nothing came of it. I would love to say no to a few things because I don’t use them and I feel like if I am never going to even give them a try it is a waste for me. It could go to someone else who would actually use it and make it look amazing.
If you want to see what I got in January, you can, just click on the month.
I will be back later in the week with another post so until then I hope that everyone stays safe, happy, and healthy.
