It’s finally here! My January IPSY glam bag, the one super exciting package that comes every month in the mail without fail and without me spending time tracking down new beauty products. (And spending gobs of money)
This month’s theme ’19 Reasons 2014 Will Be Amazing’ is slightly perplexing, but the products were pretty awesome, and I’m pretty sure there are more than 19 reasons 2014 will be amazing.
Number one will be the excellent glam bags that come monthly – number two – the awesome things in the amazing glam bags!
This month’s package has five different products.
My favorite by far is the MALIN+GOETZ Mojito Lip Balm. Not only does it work, but it’s tasty. Not that I eat my lip gloss or anything… 😉
The other product that I really liked is the Yaby Liquid Foundation in ‘buff’. I’m a bare minerals devotee, so I don’t often stray from my usual foundation routine. When something new comes in my glam bag it helps me to get out of my rut and give something new a try. This stuff blends in well and does a great job on my problem spots.
As for the final two products, the Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Tissues and Benefit POREfessional, I wasn’t too impressed. The only thing I ever notice with different cleansing tissues is the smell – and I didn’t notice a difference with my ‘fine lines’ etc with the Benefit product.
If you haven’t already, I HIGHLY suggest that you enroll in a monthly glam bag of any type. I really like my Ipsy bag, but others swear by Birchbox. They’re basically monthly packages for around $10 a month filled with different fun beauty samples. It’s a great way to get out of a makeup rut, and helps you find new products. They’re also excellent gifts… I gave my sissy a Birchbox subscription for Christmas, and it’s definitely a gift that keeps on giving.
