IPSY Bag: July 2014

Posted by on Jul 31, 2014 in IPSY - My Glam Bags, Reviews | 0 comments

 

Good morning, my LOOOOOOVES!!!

Today I am here to talk about my July’s IPSY bag, even though it’s kind of late in the month and we’re almost in August. I received this bag on July 21st and hated it so much I was not motivated at all to talk about it, but I figured I should do a post on it, even if it’s NOT a very positive one, because life isn’t just about flowers, right? So let’s talk about the thorns as well…  I really disliked this bag…. In fact, it was my worst bag so far since I joined… :(

Starting with the Hang Tang Dark Tanning Oil, which I will NEVER use, simply because I have fair skin and can’t use tanning oils, unless I want to cook in the sun.

The color of the nail polish I received was a horrific dark blue, making the nail polish my second most hated item of this bag.

Now that I got the two items I hated the most out of the way, I can finish talking about this bag…

The Pixie Beauty Tinted Brilliance Balm was OK, very moisturizing, but nothing great and without any color (didn’t find the tint in it).

I was disappointed at how small the Bare Minerals 5-1 Cream Eyeshadow sample was. It was nice, however, it was the SMALLEST sample ever, and even if the sample was twice as big, it would still be very small.

Last, but not least, I am curious to try the facial moisturizer, which in my opinion was the best item of this bag, along with the super cute pink bag itself.

So, as much as I may sound like a hater, I still love my monthly IPSY Bags. Also, I gave away the nail polish and the tanning oil to friends who could make good use out of them, because “somebody’s trash is always somebody else’s treasure”!

Can’t wait to receive August’s bag and I hope it’s a better one!

Hi looooves!!!

I AM BACK and have a bunch of new products to share with you, starting with this lovely collection by e.l.f.

Have you seen this beautiful and affordable Disney Collection made by e.l.f. for selected Walgreens stores?

I first heard about it through my friend Thayna, from “On the Path to Beauty” blog and I fell in love instantaneously!

The Ariel Collection is sooooooo beautiful, but by the time I found out about it and went to buy myself some things, most of it was already gone. So I bought what I was able to find at my local Walgreens.

  • Ariel Treasure Within Beauty Book Gift Set – Includes: 9 eye shadows/ 1 eyeshadow brush/ 2 bronzers/ 1 mini bronzer brush/ 1 mini lip color. The GORGEOUS packaging is made of hard cardboard and has a mirror as well as the step by step of TWO look ideas inside. The shadows are shimmery, except for one (Seashell) that has a matte finish with some super tiny glitter. The colors are BEAAAAAUUUUTIFUL!!  I used Urban Decay’s eye primer (as always) and the shadows lasted very decently all day (9 hours) without creasing and were easy to blend. In addition, they had good pigmentation (they weren’t the most pigmented shadows I’ve tried, but not the worst. I will say the pigmentation was very good for such a cheap product and some colors had better pigmentation than others . ($9.99)
  • Ardell Ariel Lash Kit – Includes 2 sets of eyelashes/ 1 lash adhesive. ($7.99)
  • Ariel Pencil Case ( I will use it to carry my brushes when I travel J ) ($6.99)

This limited edition collection is a great option for those who love to buy affordable makeup, that never had the chance (or didn’t feel like spending the money) to buy the Disney Collection by Sephora, or simply love to collect limited edition makeup like me!

There are e.l.f. products that I love and some not so much, I won’t lie to you, but this collection is definitely dear to my heart and I recommend it!

Lots of Love………………………Polly
