My June Glam Bag Review


I was pleased with my glam bag for this month, give or take a couple of items. But I love the bag itself! I like the graffiti print and its size. And I love how I can use it as a cosmetic bag for in my purse during the week! This one is PERFECT for that.

So, on to the reviews...

Patchology Flashmasque Illuminate masks
I love playing with masks. Usually I do a Walmart-bought peel mask ( mostly because I like peeling the mask off, lol ) that you can purchase for like a buck and a quarter. This was the first time I've used a sheet mask. This mask sat very flush to my face, which I liked. It was also cool and smelled great. I left the mask on for longer than the 5 minutes it recommends, which I didn't find to be an issue. When I removed the mask, though, I noticed that it took a while for my face to dry...and it felt sticky. Aside from that fact, I did like the product.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Fireball
I really like the color that I got. I do not like the packaging. The sample that was sent was more like a replacement palette color so it has to stay in its "plastic" if you don't already own a palette. I. Do not. The shadow is long-lasting and a beautiful shade, though, so aside from the packaging choice I'm pleased with the shadow. It just would have been nice if it was in a small compact or something.

Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush
This blush is SO pretty...but, unfortunately, it is too dark for my complexion. The first time I wore it, I looked like a clown. I think I used too much of a heavy hand when applying it to my blush brush, so when I applied it a second time I only swiped my brush once or twice across the color before applying. That seemed to help. I think this color would look much better on someone with tan or olive skin.

Doucce Boombastic Lash Volumizer Mascara
Dudettes, I love this mascara! It's a small sample size but I may just have to purchase a full size. Great length, great coverage, and I love the brush bristles. They are short enough to not smudge mascara all over my eyelids but long enough to give me the length I like. Definitely my favorite item in this months Glam Bag!

Rodial Stem Cell Cleansing Cream
Meh. It's cleansing cream. I wasn't really impressed by it. You can also use this product as a mask but I have not tried that yet. Maybe I'll like it more once I do.

EXTRA
Ice Water Eyes by ToGoSpa
This was the first purchase I made with my Ipsy Points! I used these under eye treatments right after I used my sheet mask. These things are SO nice. You can refrigerate them for extra coolness but I chose not to; they were still nice and chilly! Great for bags under the eyes or a quick pick-me-up. The box came with 3 sets so I'm going to try a set after refrigeration and see if it's even better. 

Stay tuned to see what I have to say about next month's bag!
