I have no idea why, but I received my Glam Bag extremely later than usual. All my friends in my area received theirs before me. Although, it is almost October, these products in my September bag actually impressed me!
Pixi by Petra- Brow Powder Trio: I was so happy to find out I was receiving this brow trio. It is A LOT smaller than I thought it would be. I could not even get a good swatch because the powders were so small and not pigmented. I could not use this product alone but enjoy the darker brown shade to fill in my brows. I have used this then I set with my Gimmie Brow from Benefit, but was not blown away by the quality. I was disappointed by the size but pleased I received a brow product!
NYX Cosmetics/Ipsy Eye Shadow Trio: I am so impressed that Ipsy and NYX made this trio, especially with wearable versatile shades. I am a big fan of browns, golds, and nice smokey eye with black shadows, I can easily create that with these shadows. For some reason, mine did not come with the dual applicator, I never really use them but it would have been nice. I swatched these with my finger, it shows up better from the warmth of my finger than brushes. When applying these shadows to my eyes, the shadows are not very pigmented but they are easy to blend and buildable. I am surprised the black shadow is actually easy to blend and not chalky!
tre’StiQue-Mini Matte Lip Crayon: This lip crayon has mixed reviews, but I enjoy this brand and was surprised by the pigmentation of this lip crayon. I would not call this very matte, but it did apply smoothly and is not drying on the lips. I just wish this crayon was a tad wider to provide a more perfect application.
TEMPTU-S/B Highlighter in Champagne Shimmer: I have already received this product in a white shade before and did not like it. This champagne shimmer shows up a lot more than the previous one I received but not amazed by the product. I have not experimented too much with this product but am determined to try!
Eau Thermale Avène-Soothing Moisture Mask: I always get some type of skin care in my Ipsy, this one is finally something different that I have not tried! It is a “creamy, non-setting skincare mask provides intensive soothing care to dehydrated and over-stressed skin.” Seems very interesting, I have not had a chance to try it yet! The directions say to leave 15 minutes then take off, and would instantly have hydrated skin. This might be a great product for winter!
