Every time I see that pink foil pouch in my mailbox I get so giddy, its like a mini Christmas once a month. So lets get to it, What did I get in my glam bag this month?
IPSY definitely sent some of the higher end products this month. Most of these items retail for $20 (+)
I have honestly loved everything thus far, but this nail polish wins all the awards. Typically, I throw nail polish into a bin and forget about it but last night I had a wild hair and tried a few swipes on my thumb nail. I put one coat on my nail while getting ready for bed and in true Sarah fashion totally forgot I had done that 2 seconds later. Imagine applying dry shampoo, cleaning up the bathroom, and applying face lotion only to remember you had just put on nail polish a minutes earlier. Oops. To my surprise though, this polish dries at lighting speed. No nicks, smudges, or imprints, within a few seconds of application. I even went to bed about an hour later and woke up with not a sheet print one... now that's a miracle. My nail lady is going to be sad to not see me anytime soon, because at $15 a bottle this is well worth the $$ saved the salon.
This Daily Moisture Mist could not have come at a better time! Last week I had my hair done and came out with a great cut/color and a revived vigor to take better care of my ends. I have been using the CHI heat spray and its just not doing the job. This morning I added the moisture mist to my dry hair - thinking it would be a normal heat protector - not so much. This is much more of a leave in conditioning treatment than a heat spray. It does do a great job refreshing dry hair - just spritz your ends and blow out with your hairdryer. Time will tell if this is a new addition to my hair care products but I do like what I've seen so far!
Time for our final round up... I spent $10 on my glam bag but how much did I save?
IT Cosmetics Waterproof Gel Liner - $22 for full size - lets call the sample half sized @ $10
Winky Lux Powder - $20 for full sized - small sample so we'll say $5
The Organic Pharmacy Rose Gel Cleanser - $85 for 100 ml - sample was 30ml so $25
Ciate Nail Polish - $15
Marula Pure Beauty Oil Daily Moisture Mist $32 for 200 ml - sample was 30 ml so $5
Sample sized pricing comes out to $60 bucks for the loot. Heck the $10 glam bag was cheaper than the retail price of the nail polish and that was full sized! I'd say I got my $$$ worth and even got to try out some great products that I will definitely be buying in the future. Thanks IPSY
