Much Love: February's Glam Bag

It's decided: come May, I will be switching from Ipsy glam bags to the Birchbox subscription...simply to try something new. Plus I have all these mini makeup bags now and nothing to do with them! ( they do make awesome purse carry-alls, though! )

This month's bag was alright. YET-A-FUCKIN-GAIN I was sent a lipstick!; luckily it doesn't look half bad and it's not a colored gloss-type lip color. Still not too happy about it, though--I don't know how many times I say that I do NOT like lipsticks.

So I'm also not a big fan of the jean-like appearance of this bag. Plus it doesn't seem as sturdy as bags in the past.

Anyways, on to the products:

NYX Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry
Again with the fucking lipsticks...but it's a decent product. Glides on smooth, lasts a good bit-may be nice for a special occasion. But I live in scrubs and Lularoe so...lipsticks is rarely warranted...

Lord & Berry Line/Shade Eye Pencil in #221 Black
I'm more into liquid eyeliners these days, but this is a nice little pencil. Lines nicely but I haven't tried to smudge or shade with it, yet. I find it hard to do a clean cat-eye with a pencil.

The Organic Pharmacy Lip & Eye Cream
So far, I've only used this product once but I used it for both areas. I dabbed a bit under my eyes and then along the lines leading from my nose to the corners of my mouth. It's a thicker cream, so it stays in place. Pleasant/no smell, which is a plus. It was also nonirritating to my rather sensitive skin.

Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in You're Toast
Pretty shade but I don't like anything that is a loose powder because I'm clumsy as fuuuuuuck and most of it ends up on the floor or my clothes...

True Botanicals Resurfacing Moisture Mask
Haven't used it yet...gonna try it tonight...smells good though!...

I'm hoping that my last two Ipsy bags are the best yet, but I have a feeling that will not be the case. Maybe I'm just bored with it? Who knows. It was fun while it lasted, though, and I'll still review March and April ( if anyone even reads this anyways, haha! )

...then just be on the lookout for some Birchbox reviews! 👍

See ya later, alligatorssssss!
