It is the beginning of a new year, how fun. It still feels weird to write out 2018 though, don’t you agree? With that fresh start comes new makeup to play with! My Ipsy is here so let’s hope they started 2018 out with a bang!
Show me the good stuff:
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Lip Lingerie in Satin Ribbon
A full product is always great but a full product from a brand I know and love is even better. This liquid lipstick is a true nude shade on me making it a bit tricky to pull off but with the right lip liner it is not an issue. Featuring a true matte formula this product will dry the lips out a bit. I am still willing to give it a fair shot because it looks stunning on. NYX products are usually on par with higher end items so this liquid lipstick will get lots of use by me.
ORIBE HAIR CARE Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
With super fine hair a lot of products can weigh it down so I tend to steer clear. If I was going to receive a hair product however I am glad that it is a dry shampoo. The Oribe brand costs a pretty penny so I am happy to have gotten a product to try from them. Dry shampoo is always needed when you’re in a time crunch or just don’t feel like waking up early to shower ( c’mon we have all been there). It smells good and does the trick of soaking up oil fast.
DIRTY LITTLE SECRET COSMETICS Eyeshadow in Sangria
I am trying really hard to wear more eyeshadow this year (maybe THAT is my new years resolution). This color is a stunning shimmery, burnt red shade. I am wearing it today and loving it. It went on with full pigmentation, was buttery smooth and appears vibrant even without an eye primer. Total hit and another full size? Yes please!
CITY COLOR COSMETICS Contour Palette
This was the standout product in the bag. I know, I am shocked too. City Color Cosmetics is a very inexpensive brand but you would not know it by how this item performs. Three shades round out this palette and are everything you need to contour and highlight the face. The darkest shade is perfect for sculpting the face, the middle shade is ideal for adding warmth and the last shade, a shimmery white is a strong highlighter. These all looked great on the skin and lasted all day. Just the right amount of pigmentation that blended like a dream. I have been reaching for this all week and adore how my makeup has been looking.
CAKE BY CAKE BEAUTY Heavy Cream Intensive Body Balm
A lotion is not a bad thing to receive, it just isn’t my favorite. I like to stick strictly to make up products. This product smells just like cake though, hence the name, and that wins my heart over. This heavy cream can be used on the whole body but the travel size makes it the ideal hand cream to throw in my purse. Always a good thing to have around!
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this month’s Glam Bag. All these products were new things to try that I will get a ton of use out of. No misses and a potential holy grail product. How exciting! What products did you get this month? I would love to know.
