Destination Chic

Monday, June 20, 2016

Hey everyone,

Welcome back to my blog. On today's post, I'm going to be sharing with you my thoughts on Ipsy's 2016 May glam bag called Destination Chic. I know that I'm a little late with this blog post, but I still wanted to get it up here and share with you how I felt about it.

As per usual, this month's glam bags have a ton of brands for the month. So it's nice to know you're not always getting the same thing and that your bag is really made for you. This month's brands were Crazy Rumors, Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics, Trissola, Glamour Dolls, It Cosmetics, Mellow Cosmetics, Pacifica, Neutrogena, Eva NYC, NoTs, GlamGlow, Bellapierre Cosmetics, Vasanti Cosmeitcs, Epice International, Simissglam, Clark's Botanicals, Vera Mona, Aurora, Hikari Cosmetics, Ziaja, PEEK Beauty, The Organic Pharmacy, Jersey Shore Cosmetics, Avene, Hanalei, INSPR Beauty, SOO AE, Etat Libre D'Orange, Formula 10.0.6, Biossance, Smashbox Cosmetics. With all of these different brands, you're not bound to get the same type of product in your glam bag. Meaning lipstick, blush, etc. You have a chance of getting skin care products, hair care products, and tools, which is a great plus. 

This month I got It Cosmetic's No tug, waterproof eyeliner, Jelly Pong Pong Bronzer Duo in Caribbean Sun, Trissolo Chia Smoothing Hair Oil, Glamour Dolls Sperm Whale Blending Brush #10 and Crazy Rumors Hibikiss natural lip color in Coral. 

The first product I'm going to be talking about, will be It Cosmetic's Waterproof liner. I already tried this product at Generation Beauty and I love it. The black is so intense and dark that you can easily line your waterline and upper waterline. Sometimes it does wear off a little easy, but I find that it is easy to work with. I even used this as a base to do my smokey eye, and it blended out pretty well for me. The only thing I don't like about this product, is that it does dry up pretty easily. When it does get dry, you can't even use it because the color is completely lost. 

The next product that I got was this Jelly Pong Pong cosmetics bronzer duo in the shade Caribbean Sun.  I really liked this bronzer duo. I thought that the bronzer and blush was a nice combination to give you a sunkissed look with a nice soft flush to your skin. The bronzer color was nice but it did make me look a bit orange with my tanned skin. So this would be nice for someone lighter than me. I really loved the blush. It complimented my skin tone so well and it is one of my favorites. 

The next product that I got was Trissola's Chia smoothing oil. This product is said to strengthen your hair, nourish it, hydrate, and add shine all to your hair! Isn't that wonderful. I did love this oil very much. It did give my hair a lot of shine and helped to calm down my tight curls as well. The only thing I didn't like was that it did have a fragrance to it and I don't really like hair oils that have fragrance because I feel it adds more texture to my hair. I did find myself grabbing this whenever I was doing my hair however. 

The next product that I got was Glamour Dolls Sperm Whale edition #10 blending blush. First impression of this brush was that it was very cute and definitely a unique styled brush to have. However, I accidentally broke it when I left it on my bed. I was disappointed but I was able to get a use for it. This is a nice brush for when you want to apply a deep shade in a small place. It can softly blend the shadow out, while still keeping it intense. The quality of the brush does someone match the price but I really liked the bristles of the brush. 

Lastly, I got Crazy Rumor's Hibikiss Lip Balm in coral. This was by far my favorite product in the whole glam bag. This was a nice chapstick with a soft color and sweet scent to it. I couldn't enjoy it more because my dog chewed the bottom of it, so I wouldn't be able to move the product up to use it. I was so sad but this is definitely a product that I would purchase again. 

Overall, I really liked this month's glam bag and I think it was a very nice bag and I enjoyed all of the products. Even though I got a product that I already have, it was still a nice bag. I love Ipsy so much and I think it's a great way to try new brands and products.
