I know it’s almost the end of January, but I am just now finally getting around to writing about my January Ipsy Glam Bag! It really was wonderful, and I am a devoted fan all over again. If you love your Birchbox, I strongly encourage you to check out Ipsy – you might even switch over like I did!
1- Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray (travel size, $6) / 2- Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil (To Go, $14) / 3- Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in Bloody Mary ($13) / 4- Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Mini Body Butter (2.5 oz., $7) / 5- SOHO “Get a Grip” Crease Brush ($9)
I was a little disappointed with the Nailtini polish… very runny. As an Essie fanatic, I’m used to nail polish that delivers rich color without having to apply coat after coat, so I’m not sure I would buy another polish from Nailtini. However, the color is gorgeous!
The crease brush is a little floppy for my taste, although the handle has indentions that make it much easier to hold, so I did like that part.
My favorites are the body butter, volumizing hairspray, and argan oil – they have all held up really well over the course of long work days, and they all smell really nice! The argan oil is top notch, making my hair feel shiny and healthy for longer. I used the hairspray collaboratively with a lot of root teasing to achieve awesome volume for my otherwise super flat hair, and the body butter goes on so smooth and easy. Love all three of these products, and I would definitely look into either repeat buying or possibly finding slightly cheaper alternatives by the same companies!
