Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag May 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new post!

Ipsy Glam Bag May 2020

It’s that time again and it’s time for Ipsy! I got my Glam Bag and GB Plus early this month and still waiting for my BoxyCharm to arrive. Anyways, Ipsy GB is $12 a month and you get sample to deluxe to full size items from skin care to beauty tools to makeup. You get a range from indie brands all the way to luxury brands! Let’s see what I got!

SL Miss Glam SS57 Brush: First up is a brush from SL Miss Glam. I am glad I finally got a product from this brand in my Glam Bag and I love these brushes! This is a gorgeous brush and this can be used for blending or in the crease. These brushes are made with synthetic bristles and a plastic handle. These handles are pretty weighted and the bristles are really soft. I’ve purchased sets from Ipsy from this brand and they are great face and eye brushes. This brush retails for $18.50.
Nails Incorporated Nail Polish in Camilia Drive: Next is another nail polish and from Nails incorporated this time! I’ve gotten polishes from this brand in this bag for months and it’s a pretty good company but my nails do get wrecked easily due to my typing and washing. This shade is a deep raspberry and glad to get this since I do like purple shades since this is a red violet. Right now I’m trying out press on for my first time, I know “GASP!” but I will try this polish after letting my nails breathe when I finish the week with these nails. I think this polish retails around $15.
Space Case Eye Shadow in Intense Stargasm: Next is an eye shadow from Space Case Cosmetics. Since I already love these guys I do enjoy their formula, especially the shadows which are very soft and do have a bit of a cream-like feel to them. This shade is a silvery shade and glad to try out this one since I almost bought this when I first got into them. This item retails for $9.
Way of Will Hand & Body Lotion in Sweet Orange & & EEleni: Next is a hand and body lotion from Way of Will. I never heard of these guys until this bag which I do love trying new brands I never heard of. This lotion contains shea butter, cacao seed butter, and avocado oil, and almond oil, also orange oil for the scent. Plus it is great for using after the gym because it gets rid of bacteria and the It does claim the Elemis Essential Oil helps to boost circulation and acts as an antiseptic. I did start using this and what I have an issue with is getting the product out. Plus it is best to use it on hands due to the small size you get. This retails for $28.
Tarte Sea Jelly Glaze Anytime Lip Mask in Strawberry: Final item is my choice this month and wishing it wasn’t due to the size of it. It’s from Tarte and it’s their Sea Day Anytime Lip Mask and which I wished it was in a pot after seeing how tiny it was. I don’t get why brands have to make their samples so tiny for Ipsy when they can just make a deluxe size in a pot than a tube. You can apply this as thin product during the day or thick at night for an all-night treatment. This retails for $14 which I should just get it from them for a bigger size.

That is it guys for this month’s bag which was meh! I wished the lotion was a squeeze bottle which is hard to do and the Tarte item was tiny. I did like the nail polish which I can’t wait to try and of course glad that I got the eye shadow from Space Case. I am also glad for the SL Miss Glam Brush which I am a fan of their brushes! I am not sure if I want to do Choice for June because the items in GB Plus are better for that but I will see what they offer before I choose Surprise Me! Speaking of GB Plus, I will have that up after I do the new book review on the next Oh Hell No Series from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. So stay tuned!

The Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag April 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe and Happy Easter! I have a new post and happy about it!

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2020

Got my Glam Bag yesterday in the mail and thought I would get it earlier but due to how everyone’s shopping online it’s taking a bit to get my items in. I’m even waiting for my Glam Bag Plus to ship and my BoxyCharm didn’t ship until around last Thursday or Friday. This bag is $12 a month and you get deluxe and sometimes full-size items ranging from prestige brands to skin care! You also get to customize one item, buy add-ons, and a makeup bag! Let’s see what I got!

Nomad Cosmetics Tuscany Intense Eye Shadow in Aperitivo: First is my choice item and it’s from Nomad Cosmetics. I am loving this brand so far and glad to choose this because the color caught my interest over the other choices. It’s a shimmery rose quartz shade that I can wear from day to night. I definitely want to wear this shade since I do love their eye shadows due to how pigmented they are and they are made with grape seed oil in a few of them. I can’t wait to try this out!
Murad Nutrient Charged Water Gel: Next is another product from Murad and it’s their Nutrient Charged Water Gel. I’m so glad to try another product from them since I’ve gotten two items during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty and it’s best to buy these guys during that time because this brand is not cheap! When I got my bag yesterday I decided to try this before I shot a video since I do moisturize before putting on makeup and they are right on the description about being lightweight! It wasn’t greasy and it just felt cooling to my skin. It claims to have five minerals, five five vitamins, and five peptids that help balance skin and retain moisture. Also, it’s gentle on all skin types without causing irritation which it didn’t actually. You can also wear this under SPF Actually. I hope to see this on the 21 Days of Beauty sale for Fall because this is $60 and would like to get it for half off, just saying!
LoveCraft Beauty Lipstick in Fausta: Next is a lipstick from LoveCraft Beauty! I remembered my first item I got through add-ons from these guys was a blush pallet and they are pretty good. The color I got this month is in Fausta which is a warm beige nude. This has a satin finish that give a matte and comfortable wear which I’m hoping it does. I can’t wait to try this out
Araceli Beauty Chiquita Blending Brush: Next is a brand I never heard of before and that Araceli Beauty and I received a blending brush from them known as the Chiquita Blending Brush and they’re not kidding. It is pretty small. This brush is a Do-It-All brush with a small oval head to blend color into the eyes. The bristles are made with nano-synthetic fibers and this brand was started by Mexican born Araceli and she does fun and innovative tutorials in Spanish. With her brand she is bringing two things to attention which are her culture and her love for beauty. Which is what we need more of and I could see why the Spanish word for small was used for this brush. I can’t wait to try this brush and hoping to see more of her brand in this subscription.
Space Case Cosmetics Fakecation Bronzer: Final item is from Space Case Cosmetics! Finally a bronzer in my bag since I was wondering about getting these in my bag and not only that in the right shade. I am lighter to medium and need a lighter bronzer not a dark one. I’ve tried this brand before and even have a few shadows and nail polishes from them. I used a lavender polish and it went on pretty smooth and their shadows are smooth, also their highlighters are pretty good. This is a smooth, powder bronzer would give the right kind of radiance to the skin. These products actually feel more like a cream and they dry to a powder but they are smooth. You can wear it all over for the subtle glow it gives but I do only contour the sides of my cheeks rather than my face. Plus it’s not streaky either. I will definitely put this to the test to see how it goes. Hoping it does look good!

Now onto add-ons! I did buy another Space Case item and that is their Seen from Space Highlighter in 1A! I do have one other highlighter and loved the formula which I’m glad to try more from this brand and I should use my eye shadows from them too. And the other item is from IBY and that is their Enlighten Eye Shadow Pallet. This is a colorful pastel pallet with twenty shades which caught my eye and this was in their Ultimate box. I don’t get Ultimate because I’ve heard bad reviews about it and that it was just okay so I just stick with Glam Bag and GB Plus. I have to get the shade names and colors to be able to use this pallet!

Well that completes this post and happy with what I got! I’m happy to try out more Murad since I’ve been having good luck with their products so far Nomad Cosmetics Tuscanny Intense Eye Shadow PalletMurad Nutrient Charged Water GelLovecraft Beauty Lipstick in FaustaAraceli Beauty Chiquita Blending Brushand can’t wait to see if the Nutrient Water Gel will be on sale during the next 21 Days of Beauty

IBY Beauty Enlighten Palletlike with the AHA & BHA Cleanser and the Essential C Moisturizer. Glad to try more items from Space Case and now a new brand with a brush.
