So I’ve recently received my first Ipsy Glam Bag for the new year! I was thrilled. I could not wait to get my hands on to this month’s goodie bag. For everyone who doesn’t know me personally, I am basically like a hermit. I stay in the house almost all of the time.
The Ipsy Glam Bag is a treat to myself, my brain was sort of screaming at me “Hey, Shakiema, you deserve something nice – SPEND MONEY ON THAT IPSY GLAM BAG, GIRLLLLLLLLLLL”. You know… I had to listen to my brain, she knows best!
On top of that, I’ve been babysitting my younger siblings all weekend long and could not wait to get back home to my Ipsy Glam Bag.
So… anyway, let’s chat about this month’s bag!
What’s in the bag this month?
- ABSOLUTE NEW YORK: Eye Artiste Single Shadow in Posse
- NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP: Lip Lingerie in Beauty Mark
- CIATÉ LONDON: Fierce Flicks Liquid Eyeliner
- PURLISSE BEAUTY: Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant
- CAKE BY CAKE BEAUTY: Heavy Cream Intensive Body Balm
Absolute New York: Eye Artiste Single Shadow in Posse
This eyeshadow is a very beautiful shade. It has a metallic, rose colored pigment. However, if you have a dark complexion like me, then you will probably need to go over your eyelid about three or four times in order for the pigment to actually be defined.
Do not forget to use the primer as well.
I rate this product 3.5 out of 5 stars.
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP: Lip Lingerie in Beauty Mark
This lippie is not really my color. It is not exactly suitable for my complexion, so I outlined my lips with a Brown lip pencil from Nicka K New York and then I put a bit of the lip lingerie in beauty mark on the middle of my lips to make it pop out a little bit.
I rate this product 3 out of 5 stars, mainly due to it not being suitable for my complexion.
CIATÉ LONDON: Fierce Flicks Liquid Eyeliner
This eye liner is amazing. I actually was super tired after beating my face (aka applying my makeup, so I ended up going to sleep. Woke up and my eyeliner was still intact. Forreal! Putting on this liner was great, it was effortless, you just pop off the cap, and get to work honey. You don’t need to go over the same spot because the liner will easily glide on.
Any beauty product that stays intact after I fall asleep deserves a 5 star rating.
Having said that, I rate this product 5 out of 5 stars.
PURLISSE BEAUTY: Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant
This product is great, it’s an exfoliating mud mask, how awesome is that? I applied it to my clean face, left it on for approximately 10 mins then it began to get hard. After it’s finished getting hard, that’s when you scrub it off in a circular motion. Once you’re done scrubbing it off of your face, you will feel brand new.

(Be careful not to get it in your eyes. I didn’t but I can only imagine how bad it will burn!)
I rate this product 4.5 out of 5 stars.
CAKE BY CAKE BEAUTY: Heavy Cream Intensive Body Balm
This product smells just like vanilla cake, but it is super thick. Since it was thick I automatically assumed that it was going to moisturize my skin and going to stay on for at least 80% of the day. NOPE! I was wrong!
This product ended up making my skin feel dry after about two hours or so. It’s smells great but when it comes to moisturizing your skin, it’s a NO NO!
I rate this product 1 out of 5 stars. (Sorry Cake Beauty.)
Also, I don’t think you should wear this type of lotion in the summertime, the insects would have a feast on your skin. Hehe.
This was one of my most favorite Ipsy Glam Bag experiences! I liked everything except for #5 (the Cake Beauty lotion).
