Subscription Satelitef: Ipsy Glam Bag January 2022

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the bvast nerd universe. I am back with the first subscription box of the year!

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2022

It’s 2022 and with the new year is another year of Ipsy Glam Bags! This first bag is a good one and glad it’s more makeup except for one item which I will share in this post. This bag is $13 a month where you get products ranging from drugstore to luxury and they are either deluxe or full size. Let’s see what I got!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

First item is from First Aid Beauty.n I love this brand since it’s sensitive skin friendly. This is a whipped moisturizer that helps dry skin, even eczema prone skin to be moisturized with shea butter and white tea extracts and more. I’m glad to start this year with this product since it does get really cold here on the Florida coast and my skin gets really dry around winter time. I will be using this product whenever I get to it since I have so many moisturizers in my arsenal. I’m glad to get moisturizers in my subscriptions since I don’t have to worry about buying some but I do like getting some on sale through Ulta or Ipsy. I can’t wait to use this. I am currently using the one I got in Allure last month.

Even though this says it is a moisturizer but it is body butter according to the Product Review I just now. I just did a search on the Ulta app and it’s used for face and body. I am happy that they had the answer on the jumbo size product page of the jumbo size. I hope this works out since I have enjoyed what I used from First Aid so far.

Lottie London AM to PM Eyeliner in Velvet

Here we go! This is the product that irritated my eyes and it’s from Lottie London and I had to toss. I love eyeliners to add an accent to my eyeshadow look. When I go to work I tend to wear shadow and liner with mascara on top of a lash primer but Thursday was when this happened. I just wore eyeliner with mascara to go with what I was wearing and for the first part of the day while in my office I felt my eyes water and sting. I was rubbing to see if it helps and it didn’t so I had to fast walk to the bathroom to clean my eyes. I did have to put in medicated eye drops when I got home because of it. I did post about it in Makeup Awesomeness and someone commented saying that some people have received old products in some subscriptions. I remembered in some Birchbox videos where people had gotten things with mold on them and I was surprised since this was a new eyeliner, as in no mold from what I can notice if I did see it with my peripherals, not even feeling it on the outside packaging, it was new! So, I decided to try it again while writing this post except I found it did irritate my eyes since I felt my left eye sting all thanks to it. I tossed it. I thought the Beautinique Blush Serum was bad, this felt worse because it really stung my eyes. It felt like I was getting a sty again but without one. I was afraid of Blepharitis again since I got that as I was packing for my move at the end of 2020. I will be giving this a bad review. I’m sorry, I don’t like this product since no other eyeliner has done this from Ulta, Urban Decay, Ariceli, and more.

Love+Craft Beauty GlitterGloss in Cyber

Next up is Love+Craft Beauty. It’s been a while since I got an item from this brand. It’s a lip gloss from them this time. It’s a clear gloss with a little bit of shimmer that is not supposed to be sticky. You can wear this alone or put it on top of other lip items. I do like a good clear gloss if I want to give my lip item an extra bit of oomph! I will be definitely using this on top of my lipsticks and see how it goes.

Complex Culture Holiday Shadow Pallet

Next up is my choice for this month and it’s from Complex Culture and it’s their Holiday Shadow Quad. I find it weird that they had this in choice when it should have been in choice for December, as in being able to choose this in November for the December bag, unless this was a leftover item. It happens and I need to push the product out. I’m glad to choose this though since I can travel with this or just be lazy and pick it up to do a look. THis is a quad that contains berry shades which makes sense for a winter themed pallet but for anyone who wants a nice purple look. I will try this out since I did enjoy this brand’s brushes.

MOTD Tap and Dab MakeUp Sponge

Final item is a makeup sponge from MOTD. I haven’t gotten a makeup sponge for years in Ipsy and I admit back then I was not into sponges but when I started using them they changed my mind over time. I have tried brushes from MOTD and it’s good to have a change from getting brushes by getting a sponge. THis sponge is made from latex-free foam that can be used with powder, liquid, and cream products when dampened by water. I will definitely be using this in my makeup routine!

Well, that’s all I received this month. Even though the eyeliner sucked, the rest of the items were really good choices! I will definitely be using the sponge and moisturizer in my routines since it is a nice change with the sponge. I did just receive my Glam Bag Plus and will do that post next!
