Make Me Beautiful
Ipsy Glam Bag – Red Carpet Ready

Ipsy Glam Bag - Super Stars


The Red Carpet Ready Glam Bag

This Glam Bag has less makeup focused products and more body care goodies than the other Ipsy bags we have received.

Soho Crease Brush – $9 USD
While quite lovely to play with, this brush isn’t the best crease brush that I’ve ever used.  In fact for people with smaller eyes, this would be a terrible brush.

One of the benefits to this brush, however, is that it does pick up powder very well and I quite liked using it as a highlighting brush on the cheek, nose bridge, chin and forehead!  It has a very, very soft feel as well. What a delight!

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter – $7 USD
Luscious and smelling of heaven itself, this body butter is something to behold.  I put it on and wow – talk about instant moisture.  Be aware: if you put too much on, it doesn’t absorb into the skin. So, use sparingly.  My skin was deliciously soft and moisturized for 48 hours at least and felt silky to touch.  Plus, the scent stayed light and airy the whole time.  This is totally a body butter of luxury!

BigSexyHair Spray & Play – $6 USD
My initial impression was that this hairspray was just hair spray.  I noticed that it made my hair feel dry and straw-like to the touch.  That aside, it does have a strong hold, a decent amount of working time, and, which surprised me somewhat, it’s not sticky!

At the end of the day, the volume and hold was still there.  When I combed my hair out, the product didn’t tangle or stick to my hair and I was back to the soft feel I’m used to.  A very good product!

nailtini Straight Up color Nail lacquer – Bloody Mary – $13 USD
Super fast drying and needing only one coat, I was initially impressed with this nail polish.  It is “three big free” which means it’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP! It has a luster, when dry, that gives an impressive shine.  When putting on a matte top coat, I saw a smooth finish that gave the impression of silk. This is one sexy nail polish.

One thing I noticed that may be a bad thing is that if you have any lines or unevenness in your nails, every single thing will show.  Remember to prep your nails beforehand when using this product.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil – $48 USD
Better than Moroccan oil or Almond oil in that it left my hair feeling thicker and nourishing, this is by far one of the best oils to use in hair.  It’s practically scent free and very light on the hair.  I noticed a difference (not a big one) after two days and imagine that continued use would see quite a bit of change in the strength and texture of my hair!  Wonderful stuff!

Highly Recommended: ♥♥♥♥/5
