Hey hey, it’s MJ,
Here we are with in 2022 and we are here with another year of IPSY unbaggings, we’re in for a treat, I think. I don’t know anymore because well it’s only the first one of the year. I have been sitting with this bag for like 24 hours so far and I just needed to get the post written and it’s snowing outside so I can’t leave my house. It’s nasty outside and snow in Arkansas means that I might as well stay home and avoid the roads.
Super cute pastel muted moment and I really like it. It’s a good first showing for the bags this year. The tab on the zipper has as smiley face on it! I love that little detail, it’s super cute.
Amorepacific The Essential Crème Fluid:
I had no idea what this was until I looked on the email that IPSY now sends to tell you what you are getting instead of including it in the little pamphlet that comes in the bag itself. It’s a moisturizer which is really cool especially this time of year when literally everything is super dry. I cannot seem to get my skin hydrated which is annoying no matter what I try so just adding another thing to it is not a bad thing. It had green tea extract and that’s a cool ingredient that I don’t get to see very often. Hoping this can do everything it claims that it will do for my skin.
Roze+Quartz Hair Mask:
I have never used a hair mask before, well no, that’s a lie, I have used one once and it was a little weird so here I am ready to try something new for my hair because why not. Maybe 2022 will be the year that my hair does all the good things that I want it to do. This claims that it will help with breakage and split ends and that is my entire life. I take pretty good care of my hair. Up until college I didn’t use conditioner and that was probably not a great thing so here, we are now moving quickly toward 30 in just months and I am taking better care of my hair and skin. Adding a hair mask once a month is probably not a bad choice on my part.
Complex Culture Rosy Outlook Eyeshadow Palette:
It’s so little! With really nice pink and berry shades and it made me think of Valentine’s Day, I don’t know why but it’s a really nice little palette. I like the shades and I really like Complex Culture’s brushes so I am excited to give this formula a try. I need to get back into wearing more makeup in 2022 because let’s be real the last time I put on a full face of makeup was like March of 2020 when the world fell apart because why would I put on a full face when I have to wear a mask. (I still am wearing one because it’s still a thing, really still a thing.)
MOTD Cosmetics Dab and Tap Makeup Sponge:
I use a makeup sponge every morning before work. I love a really good makeup sponge and this one looks a little smaller than the ones I usually use so that’s fun. I love the color and I am always on the lookout for a good makeup sponge. I buy mine from like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx because I refuse to spend $20 on a Beauty Blender. It for sure says to use the pointed end for hard-to-reach places, I use mine to take the mascara out from underneath my eyes because I am a mess. I love the color too because it’s a nice pastel and it’s very on theme for this time of year.
Sophia + Mirabelle Small + Mighty Extreme Volume Mascara in Black:
It’s a nice size product and I like the applicator for this one, it’s a unique shape and I am looking forward to using it since I just opened up a new tube of my favorite mascara, this one will get used eventually. It claims to not flake or smudge so that’s always exciting because I spend a considerable amount of time trying to make sure that my mascara doesn’t flake into my eyes by the mid-afternoon because then it’s an automatic throw away in the afternoon when I get home. I do not have time to use mascara that spends all day flaking and making my eyes hurt. I work with kids all day; I don’t have time to deal with my mascara and them as well.
Well there it is, my first Glam Bag of the year and it was a pretty good one. I really enjoyed this bag and it’s a strong start for 2022. Here is hoping that there are some other really good bags this year.
I will be back later in the week with another post so until then I hope that everyone stays safe, happy, and healthy.
