Thoughts for this month’s ipsy bag

For this month’s bag I was a teensy bit disappointed that I didn’t get the H2O sample that I was dyingg to have! (I absolutely love their products!) I guess I felt that this bag was more or less random because if my memory serves, I’m pretty sure I made sure to not include hairstyling products and nail polish in my survey. I know I put down moisturizers because I have been on the look out for a better moisturizer for my face! Other than that little disappointment, I do love how their bags are getting nicer. I’ve tried the Buxom Lip Polish and even though it’s a bit sticky like regular lip gloss, the colour is light enough that it looks like you’re not wearing anything! I guess the word I’m looking for is natural + gloss! The Be Delectable hand cream smells soooo good when you’re just sniffing it from the bottle and when you first put it on. However, once you apply it and wait a few minutes the smell kind of turns into a different smell. When you first put it on, it smells exactly as it says, “Vanilla & Cream” but after a few minutes, it smells kind of like… a cake? But not a fresh-out-of-oven kind of cake. Definitely hard to describe, but it’s not as pleasant as the initial vanilla and cream smell! Hope you enjoyed the mini review! I promise I’ll post about next month’s ipsy bag as soon as I receive it!
