Ipsy Glam Bag January 2015: Fresh Start

ipsy jan 2015

The January Ipsy Glam Bag knocked it out of the park. So far every item this month has been great and with all the full sized products and the cute makeup bag its a steal. I still am shocked every month that this bag only cost $10 a month shipped!

Check out below to see the products I received in my Ipsy January Glam Bag.

 

 

ipsy excite

I am not a big glitter fan so I wasn’t sure what to think of this when I first opened it. But it really is a shimmer not glitter and looks great over eye shadow. It also looks great brushed along my collar bone to highlight my skin. This will get lots of use this Spring and Summer!
BelláPierre Shimmer Powder – Full Size $14.99
Using 100% pure Mineral powder, these beautiful shimmer powders will provide long lasting, vibrant color without any additional filler that can often smear, crease, fade and even cause allergic reaction. Recommended by make-up artists and dermatologists, BelláPierre shimmer powders are 100% Hypoallergenic and are suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.

I have sensitive eyes so most of the time I use my fingers to apply eye shadow. This brush might change that habit. Its so unbelievably soft and applies my shadow without irritating my eyelids or dropping shadow in my eyes.

Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush -$9.99
Don’t miss a spot with this ridiculously soft shadow brush. This brush with its 100% synthetic bristles is the perfect multitasker. Use it to highlight your brow bone and place the right amount of color for perfect and even application! Your lids will thank you later!

ipsy mail goetz

Definitely one of my favorite items. This Mojito Lip Balm is so incredibly rich and hydrating. Made the mistake of trying it on my kids and now we are all fighting over it. Will be stocking up on this for Summer.

(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm Full size $12
(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm is as soothing to the lips as it is to the senses. Flavored with (MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito, this lip balm is scientifically blended to restore and replenish. This hydrating lip gel easily integrates for daily maintenance, prevention and treatment of dry, irritated lips. Color and paraben free.

Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream $19.99 – Deluxe sample size

ipsy pacifica

Coconut infused shadow? Yes, please! While it doesn’t smell like coconut it does go on incredible smooth and has great staying power. I received the soft copper Treasure shade, such a beautiful mix of copper and soft brown this will get lots of use.

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow Full size eye shadow
An incredibly innovative formula that pushes natural makeup and mineral color to new bounds. Rich, lasting, creaseless eye shadows are infused with coconut water for a velvety, cream-like finish.

Get the Look! Naomi Watts STUNS at the SAG Awards!

INSPIRATION: “For a classic look for Naomi, we decided to go with a nod to Julie Christie. It is very femme fatale.”​

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “To be sure Naomi’s skin was glowing and radiant, I applied St. Tropez Luxe Dry Oil on exposed skin for a shimmering, luminous finish. The dress is a beautiful shade of midnight blue, so I went with shades of indigo, deep grey and purple to shade and shape the eye. A soft wash of pink on the cheek kept her looking soft and delicate.”​

PRODUCTS: St. Tropez Luxe Dry Oil ($50)

Of course I had to add a photo of her hot husband, Liev Schreiber. MMM.

Get the Look! Rosamund Pike’s stunning SAG Awards look!

INSPIRATION: “I’m always inspired by the dress and tonight Rosamund is wearing an elegant, yet modern and playful asymmetrical style. To honor the dynamic, I wanted her makeup to remain neutral with a pop of color on the lip.”​​

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “To prep Rosamund’s fair skin, I applied SISLEY Sisleya Essential Skincare Lotion all over the face which is the first step to my skincare ritual, followed by the refreshing SISLEY Floral Spray Mist. To brighten the under eye area I applied a thick layer of SISLEY Eye Contour Mask and left it on for 10 minutes. Next I mixed a few drops of SISLEY Black Rose Precious Face Oil with SISLEY Hydra-Global Intense Anti-Aging Hydration to keep Rosamund’s skin nourished all night long. I finished with SISLEY Nutritive Lip Balm, which I left on until I was ready to apply lipstick. It’s important to use a primer that locks in moisture but also creates a flawless canvas, like the MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer, which comes out in March. I then feathered out MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation all over the face  followed by SISLEY Phyto-Cernes Eclat Concealer for under the eyes. To set the foundation I dusted CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Broad Spectrum SPF 15 all over and applied it with MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Medium Powder Brush #126. To contour, I blended CHANEL Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base with MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Blending Brush #122 and worked the product below the cheek bone, then gently swiped it across the top of the forehead and bridge of the nose for a sun-kissed glow. To add freshness to Rosamund’s makeup look I softly blended MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Blush #225 Peachy Pink to the apples of the cheeks. Since I planned to focus on the lips I wanted to create soft definition on the eyes by applying MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Matic Eye Shadow Pencil in #ME-50 Metallic Golden Taupe to the top lid crease and softly smudged the color along the bottom lash line, ensuring it connected on the outer corner. I then used MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Large Blender Brush #242 to define the eyes with CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Prélude. I used CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Brun on the bottom lashes and then applied my favorite mascara, MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara Rich Black, to the top lashes to create a more intense look. Rosamund’s lips are the focus of tonight’s makeup look and I wanted to add a pop of fun, matte color that would last for hours on the red carpet. I used MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil #25C Orange Red to line the lips and filled in with CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Pétillante.”​
