Have You Tried a Glam Bag Yet?

2013 is almost upon us and I have yet to introduce Glam Bags to my followers. IPSY or formerly known as My Glam have created a service where for only $10 a month you can subscribe to getting a great bag and even greater products!! I saw them on Facebook the first time through a mutual friend and I thought what a great idea to try products that you may have never heard of or that were too expensive for your beauty budget, so I began my subscription last May and I have loved it ever since!!

This is going to be a long post of each bag from this year that I have recieved and my review of each product inside the bags and their original prices to show just how much money you can save by joining!

 Love is in the Air: Bright blue zipper bag with pink kisses

Studio Gear Lip Stick in Pink Blush  $16
Sweet pink color and it goes on smooth

My Glam Concealer and Liner Brush $?

I really like these brushes they are best to cover small areas

Nail Bling by MISS Beauty $5
I have yet to try these, I will apply them around next Valentine's Day

Philosophy Love Sweet Love Frangrance Sample

I actually lost my sample :( so I can't review if I find it again I will review it

Girls Night Out Bag: Glitzy Gold Clutch


Marbella Permanent Eye Liner Pen in Black  $20
This pen was so awesome!! I love the markers because you have great control with them and they last a long time with no fading or cracking when you wear them.. and I actually just discovered (and this is the best part) you can flip the felt tip part over and use the other side when the first tip runs out!!!! I am so psyched, because I was so sad when this felt tip pen ran out..

NYX  Round Lip Stick in Orange Soda $4
Before Myglam bags I was an avid NYX user and so I already had this color.. it's very creamy and very opaque when you apply it on and it makes your lips real nude.

Living Proof Frizz  Nourishing Styling Cream $26 for full size

I actually have not used this yet, I don't have a lot of frizz and my hair is usually poker straight.. but it smells really yummy and it's in a squeeze bottle.

Take a Deep Breath from Philosophy Energizing Cream Moisturizer $34 for full size

I have used this and it is very refreshing, it's oil free and makes skin smooth and nourishes. It has a very light smell that's clean.

 Beach Beauty: Mesh Rainbow Striped Bag


Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes $3

I tried these and they are refreshing on your skin but it started to break my face out a little.. I don't know exactly if it was this product but I am a sucker for anything cucumber so I will probably give them another go in the future.

Bare Essentials Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Gloss in Starr $19

This is a nice sheer raspberry color with flecks of gold and it really does plump your lips, it has a tingling feeling when you apply it on and it has a great smell

NU.ME Hydro Punch Conditioner $24 for full size

I Loved this stuff!! I used it up and I will eventually purchase the full size when I have enough in the beauty budget. It has a floral smell and it is for color treated and dry hair and I felt like it really made a difference in my hair.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil- Free Lotion $26 for full size
I have yet to really use this product, I feel like it would benefit more in the summertime when you are out on the beach, it has a sun tan lotion smell, but it goes on pretty light

Circus Nail Polish from Andrea's Choice in Reverso $?

Great opaque bright white color, I quite like it!


Endless Summer: Mesh orange and pink bag


Demeter Roll On Perfume Oil in Clean Skin $10

I am not a perfume person but it does have a nice clean smell

Eclos Anti Aging Cellular Activator Face Serum $24.99 for full size

I have yet to use this product..when I first received it I had no idea how to use it, but when I get the chance I will try it out before I go to bed and see if there's a change

Eclos Anti Aging Regenerative Cream  $24.99 for full size
Again I have yet to use this...

Circus Nail Polish by Andrea's Choice in Ringmaster $?
Love this color!! Shocking pink :)

Salty Cosmetics Mineral Eye Shadow in Glama-zoid! $4.50
 nice duo chrome color of pinks and violets and its in a shake out container so you don't have to spill everywhere

Myglam Glam Gloss- an added bonus!
Nice candy pink gloss that looks and smells like bubblegum

..Beauty by you: Black bag


Jane Sparkle Gloss in Sparkle Pink
Not my favorite gloss. It's sheer but sticky.. I wish it came out as bright as it looks in the tube

Carol's Daughter Monoi Split End Sealer $25 for full size
I have yet to use this but I could certainly benefit from a product for split ends.

Circus Polish from Andrea's Choice in Tightrope $?
I haven't used this yet but it's such a pretty purple!!

Mirabella Eye Shadow in Semi Formal $10
I actually work with Mirabella makeup a lot and this is a really pretty bronze color, it's all natural makeup!

Soho Smudge Brush $6.99
I love using this brush to smoke out my crease color

Hello Bombshell! :Chevron black and white with a red trim

Couture Color Pequi Oil Treatment $50 for full size
 I have yet to try this product but it's said to restore softness and shine to your hair.

Be A Bombshell Eyeliner Marker in Onyx $14
I love this product!! I bought another one after my first one ran out.

The Balm What's Your Type Body Builder Mascara $19 full size

Probably one of the best mascaras I have ever tried...seriously

Coastal Scents shad quad set 8

Have yet to use these but I will do a look based off these colors..

Mireness Lip Bomb 2 $35
This Glam bag was inspired by Marilyn Monroe and what would be more her than a great red lip color and is long lasting

We are getting down to the Final 2 this week on The Voice, I am hoping that Cassadee Pope wins because she is fabulous.. but this I think is the first voice look of Season 3 that I have posted, but I have MANY more lovely looks from this season.  Christina's makeup artist Kristofer Buckle was going for a 70's barbie doll look with a a lot of gold, taupe and smokey black and finished the look off with a pale peachy-pink lip.

Here's My Look:

Here's What I Used:

    The Voice is already done for the season and the best girl won (yay! Cassadee!!) but I am going to miss Christina and all her crazy fabulous makeup looks.. this one in particular was a fun sparkly extreme purple smoky eye and a bright lip color to match. Minus her crazy hair and outfit I tried my best to find the perfect shadow and lip color to do it justice.

    Here's my look:

    Here's What I Used:

    • Base- Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
    • Lid- NYX JP in Lavendar, then I used Archetype Minerals in Soap Bubbles

    Demi Lovato X Factor Boot Camp Look #2

    This look is inspired by one of Demi Lovato's X Factor Boot Camp Looks. I really loved her lip color it was bright and fun! The only problem was that it translated a lot more pinker on camera then I wanted it to but I swear I found the perfect lip color to match it. I loved her jacket so I tried to dress in something similiar even though her jacket is awesome!

    Here's my look:

    Here's what I used:

    • Base- Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
    • Lid- Stila in Kitten
    • Crease- Urban Decay Naked Palette in Toasted and Hustle

    • Primer- Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Primer
    • Foundation- Benefit Erase Paste
    • Blush- MAC Honey Light and MAC Cranberry eye shadow
