Y’all, this post, I wasn’t even sure if it was going to happen. I am not being dramatic and nor is this a “story time” but there was some drama with this package. If you are reading this on Wednesday when it’s published I am moving to my new place and I don’t even have a wi-fi plan yet so you are all going to have to work with me as I get back into the swing of writing posts twice a week since I have been super neglecting it with the moving that is going on. The drama though, I got a notification that this package was delivered to my mailbox on Thursday, at my new place, so I go and I check. There is no key in my box and my package is in one of the parcel lockers but the key is in the wrong mailbox. I go to the post office and let them know, wait for the key, check the next morning, my regular Glam Bag is in the mailbox but no key to be found, I go to the post office again, and miraculously by about 1:30 the key is in my mailbox. It was just a little stressful and I know that it’s just a package but when it says it’s delivered but to the right building on the wrong street you get a little nervous that the person who had my key in their mailbox might have decided not to be kind and keep my package but it’s all sorted to it’s fine.
Okay so beyond that because I don’t like to be one of those bloggers who take paragraph upon paragraph of exposition to get to the meat of the post, like seriously when you are posting a recipe I don’t want to read about it before I actually get to the thing that I went to the post to look at. I saw one blog where at the top there was an option to skip to the recipe and bless that blogger for understanding.
I’m still listening to the Pop Punk playlist I mentioned in Sunday’s post and I have heard Fall out Boy, Mayday Parade, Good Charlotte, and AFI all in the last half an hour and I am still living for it! (not sponsored, ha ha, that’s funny, but I am really enjoying it.)
So what did I get in my July ipsy Glam Bag Plus, while my upstairs neighbors have a rave:
Pixi by Petra Glow Mist:
I have been getting a lot of Pixi products in my Glam Bags in the last few months and I am not complaining about it. Though when it comes to facial mists because it does have oil in it I have to be really careful or I will break out, so this wilpl be an over makeup only product. It smells like good skin care products should smell; not artificial. All of the oils are natural essential oils and I am always happy to see that because I am pretty particular when it comes to what I put on my face. Excited to give it a try though but maybe more in the fall when I want my skin too look dewier if it would look dewy now in the 90-degree heat it would just look like sweat and that is not a look.
Touch in Sol Pretty Filter Waterful Glow Cream:
Again something that smells like good skin care. I love the K-Beauty trend that is still taking over the world. I love the packaging, the box is purple holo and I could not be much more excited about that. It’s so pretty and the product itself is also packaged so simply and it’s amazing. I am really looking forward to giving this a try because for the most part higher end skin care products don’t seem to affect me as much as products I have used in the past have.
Huda Beauty 3d Highlighter Palette in Pink Sands:
Holy pan size Batman! The pan sizes on this product are some of the largest pan sizes for a multi-pan highlighter palette I have ever seen. I don’t know much about Huda Beauty but I have seen lots of people love it so I am excited to add yet another highlighter to my collection, I have a problem when it comes to highlighters they are shiny and therefore some of my favorite beauty products to hoard. You know, like a dragon. The shades are beautiful and they all seem to be a good match to my skin tone so I am excited.
Benefit Cosmetics Benetint:
I have been seeing this product in Ulta and Sephora since I can remember, it’s been around for a while but I have never been a “stain” sort of person, I am more than willing to give it a try because it leaves a nice shade on me so maybe this will be my gateway product into “stains” when it comes to makeup. To be honest I thought it was nail polish when I saw the bottle and applicator from first glance. Also I am not about the contamination life, if I use it for cheeks it will just be for cheeks or if I use it for lips it will just be for lips and that is just a me thing to which you don’t have to agree with.
Thrive Cosmetics Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara in Brynn:
I got a Thrive product in my Winter FabFitFun box and I love it, I love their packaging I love the fun messages on the inside of the cardboard wrappers and the component, the tube, it’s so heavy. I could throw it at someone and do some damage, it’s probably the heaviest mascara tube that I have ever owned. It is a fiber mascara so I will have to be careful with it, my eyes hate me most of the time and getting fibers in them will not make them like me any more than they already do. The component itself is simple and beautiful I love the silver and teal that I have seen from Thrive before and I am excited to give this a try as well.
I feel like I say I am excited to try every product and that is a truthful statement, I do look forward to trying everything I get even if it sits in my collection for a while. I am always looking for my next “holy grail” product the one that I use for years and years before finding something that I like better and having these subscription services gives me a chance to find those products that maybe I wouldn’t reach for in a store and it gives me the ability to save some money on them to try out and then if I love it to go purchase it and support the brand again.
I will be back with another post over the weekend but I don’t know what it’s going to be yet so look forward to that.
Do you subscribe to the Glam Bag Plus? If you do what was your favorite product this month?
Do you have any “holy grail” items in your beauty collection? I would love to hear about them!
