Final glam bag of 2018.
And we’re ending the year relatively strong!
As is the case with my October bag, love the concept but not so much the execution. The bag feels flimsy and cheap; the spangle side almost rustles like paper.
At the same time, it’s cute and kitschy-glam. That festive gold makes sense to me. December should be festive.
Items I received:
Finding Ferdinand Blush in Skinny Dip – Lovely mute-pink blush. A bit chalky. It’s a shade lighter than what is shown in the product photos. Think more NARS Deep Throat than Orgasm. Like.
The Balm Cosmetics Nude Beach EyeShadow in Bootylicious – Raspberry brown, with hints of shimmer. I like The Balm shadows in general, so this was also a like.
Ciate London Glitter Flip Liquid Lip in Infamous – Not as glittery as the name makes it out to be. A reddish berry shade that dries down into a matte shimmer. Like.
F.A.R.A.H. Brushes Blending Brush 35E – This is such a beautiful blending brush. And fitting, with the gold theme of the bag. The bristles are soft and the handle doesn’t feel cheap. Love.
Coco & Eve Like a Virgin Coconut Hair Mask – Smells overwhelmingly like coconut. This may be a like or a dislike depending on how it works as a mask. Undecided.
Dr.Lipp Colour Tint in Sweet Potato – Love the idea and the name, but the product refused to leave the tube. Squeezing with both my hands made a bird’s nostril-sized amount squirt out, and even that was too tacky. Barely any color. Dislike.
Six items in total. 5/6. This was a good bag.
I’m sad about the Dr.Lipp. Had such high hopes for the Sweet Potato. I hope I got a bad batch.
Here’s a close-up of the brush. It’s gorgeous.
Come to think of it, I’ve never disliked a brush Ipsy sent me. I’ve failed with plenty of other products, but never a brush.
