Ipsy Glam Bag: July 2017

Hear my thoughts about Ipsy's July Glam Bag and see if it Glammunition approved!


This month, I received the July Glam Bag and let's talk about how ADORABLE the bag is this month. When you flip it over, you see the back side of the egg and its little tushy. However, I showed it to my mother and she didn't think it was as cute. 

Let's be real, with the July heat, we can all spiritually relate to this over easy egg. We are finally going to reach triple digits here in Oklahoma. But enough about the weather, lets get into the products!

SO SUSAN BLENDER BRUSH

This brush is literally SO SOFT. It's dense enough to pack but it's tapered to blend into smaller detailed areas that you want to reach. I cannot wait to use this everyday!

OFRA SINGLE EYESHADOW IN "GOLD RUSH"

I got this in my bag and when I opened up the plastic holder for the single eyeshadow and there was pigment all over it. However, I cleaned it up and swatched it and oh my gosh, it's so pigmented that it looks foiled. I can't wait to receive more Ofra shadows from Ipsy.

HANALEI ROSE LIP SCRUB

When I signed up for Ipsy and did the "what products do you prefer" quiz, I never asked for lip scrubs or products like it. I wasn't too thrilled to receive this in my glam bag this month but I gave it to my mother. She enjoys the lip scrub a lot and she uses it at work frequently because her lips are very dry.

COUGAR BEAUTY 24 HOUR LIQUID LIPSTICK IN "MULBERRY" 

This liquid lip confused me at first. On the box when you get it, the shade looks dark purple but the actual product is like a mauvey-rose shade. I swatched it on my hand and it was that mauvey-rose shade. However, when it dries down, it becomes a darker purpley-red shade that will look PERFECT in the fall. In my opinion, this feels better on the lips compared to a Kylie matte liquid lip but has the same durability. I was surprised by this liquid lip and can't wait to use it!

EYEKO SKINNY LIQUID EYELINER IN "BLACK"

Again, when I signed up for Ipsy, I didn't want eyeliners. I don't like doing liquid eyeliner, I am not that great at it and it takes too long for me to master. This is the 2nd month is a row to receive a liquid eyeliner. But for the eyeliner junkies out there, this is a very pigmented black liner. I'm not too sure about if it cracks or not but it's definitely pigmented as all heck. 


JULY GLAM BAG RATING:  ♛♛♛♛

This month's bag, even though I got two products that I wasn't thrilled about, was pretty decent. The brush and the liquid lip took the cake for the best products in this month's bag. The bag itself was so cute and I can't get over it! I just hope Ipsy does not send me another liquid eyeliner because the two I've received is all I'll ever need for awhile.

Anti-Haul: Summer 2017

Some of these products coming out aren't grabbing my attention and I'll be explaining why I will not be purchasing them!
Throughout the summer, a lot of summer collections have already dropped but big beauty brands are now prepping for their fall/holiday collections. Some products have been teased, others leaked. So without any hesitation, let's dive into this anti-haul. 
Anti-haul: A term made famous by beauty bloggers discussing what products they will not be purchasing that season
TOO FACED WHITE CHOCOLATE BAR PALETTE
This palette honestly looks like trash. Actually, let me backtrack that statement, the green, the peachy shade in the bottom left corner, and the orange shade look good, everything else is not appealing to me. The White Chocolate Chip Palette wasn't a major success in the first place. It had way too many light shades to really make a full look. With the WCC's sister, we do see some pops of color and some crease shades and two potential darker matte …

My Thoughts: Too Faced

Hear my thoughts on whether I think Too Faced is overdone with some of their products or is overdue for some new products! Too Faced is a widely known for their child-like makeup with chocolately and other candy-like scents that take you back to the days you used clear anything flavored Lip Smackers gloss as a little girl. Too Faced swiftly became famous for it's Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, as they blended beautifully into the skin and gave you a sunkissed glow while smelling delicious. The rest is history.


Now we reflect on the very successful brand in present day. Chocolate Bar Palettes, Chocolate Bon Bon Palette, Melted Chocolate Lipsticks, Sweet Peach Palette, you name a food and the palette will probably smell like it. Certainly their iconic scents have reeled in a lot of consumers to buy their products because they offer something more unique than the rest of the brands out there.



But let's talk about the products. The original Chocolate Bar Palette dropped in December of…

My Thoughts: Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

I received my ABH Subculture Palette in the mail! Hear my thoughts and first impression about the Modern Renaissance's "sister palette."Sister Palette: A term by beauty gurus to relate one eyeshadow to another by formula, set up, and/or color coherence
About two months ago, the Subculture Palette was leaked. Someone from Reddit leaked photos of the palette and I believe (but don't take my word for it) the photos got removed/deleted. However, the photos of the leaked had spread out like wildfire and the next thing you know, you're reading an Allure article about it. Then Norvina, Anastasia's daughter, teased the palette on a livestream, confirming it was actually happening.

At first photos of the palettes surface, a lot of the feedback was negative. Many were confused at how this was going to be a "sister palette" to the infamous Modern Renaissance. It was considered a "sister palette" (as we learn later on) because they both have the same…
