Spring is just around the corner and Ipsy is celebrating with this months Ipsy glam bag appropriately themed “Hello Spring!” This month there are three variations of the glam bag (I received the mint and orange.) But no need for long introductions so let’s get started!
Insanely Intense Tattooed Eyeliner in Jet Black
Retail: $20.00 (currently marked at $15.00)
Verdict: Having tried so many different liquid eyeliner pens and having so many disappointments, I finally settled for Stila (and even still have not been completely satisfied) but this tattooed eyeliner from Skone Cosmetics is absolutely amazing. Goes on great, stays on great (like, seriously, be careful about making mistakes because it truly has great staying power) and I didn’t feel like my wings faded at all which they always inevitably do with my Stila and almost every other pen I’ve tried. Basically I think it’s amazing and you should totally give it a try and, honestly, I have a hard time believing you’ll ever return to your old brand. Here’s what Ipsy has on their website in the products description: “It’s waterproof, smudge proof and won’t run or feather. Literally lasts ALL day – even through a workout!” I 100% agree with this claim!
Liquid Suede Cream in Kitten Heels
Verdict: I have about a hundred red lipsticks (give or take) in varying shades and finishes from every price range and I’m not lying when I say this is my new favorite. Not only is it a fabulous shade of red but the matte finish is perfect and it. stays. on. This red lip ain’t budging. Which to me is probably the most important thing about a lip color seeing as not only do I talk a lot but I also enjoy eating and drinking throughout the day and breathing which even that small “activity” can disrupt some lipsticks. Basically you should run out an grab this stuff asap.
Pixi by Petra
Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold
Retail: $18.00 (for full size that also includes kabuki brush)
Verdict: This is a great combo of color and highlighter that you can swirl together or use separately and I truly love it and definitely see myself buying it when I’m out. I absolutely suggest trying it for yourself. A little color and highlight goes a long way especially for those who don’t like to look like they’re wearing makeup but just want that dewy fresh look.
Aphrodite Skin Care
Anti-aging & Hydrating Eye Cream
Verdict: I’m not quite at the stage in my life where I feel I need anti-aging products (but maybe I should?) so me trying to tell you whether this eye cream has “slowed down” my aging process in any way is a bit of a stretch. It’s hydrating in the sense that I don’t have dry spots around my eyes or feel like they’re not moisturized enough but I’ve used eye cream for years and I think I’d have to have been NOT using eye cream previously to be able to tell you whether or not there were any remarkable changes after using this product. On the Ipsy website it states that this cream also “helps reduce fine lines, dark circles and puffiness” which I will say I haven’t noticed it doing. If you’re looking for some under eye hydration I think there are other alternatives out there that are easier to obtain and have more benefits. But, like I said, I’m ill equipped to be a judge in this department. Sorry kids.

Super Shiner Buffer
Verdict: Well it does what it says it does. It makes your nails shiny. So there you go. Shortest verdict ever.
Here’s my super professional selfie after (very speedily because I was running late) applying my Glambag goods.
