I know I’m running behind but it’s been trial and error setting up all the social media connections to go with this site, so I very much appreciate your patience!
September’s Allure Beauty Box included:
Ciate London Dewy Stick. I’m was excited to try this and it was great. It created a subtle “dew” look. I’m not a huge fan of makeup sticks but this will work nice when traveling and space is at a premium.
NatureLab Perfect Smooth shampoo and conditioner. I really liked the citrusy smell of these products but I was not impressed with the conditioning power of the conditioner. It took almost the whole bottle to feel like my hair was properly covered. I would probably not buy it in the store.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita – I have come to really love NARS. I never would have thought to try them but every time I receive a trial, I am impressed. This lip pencil went on smooth and not clumpy and created an evenly distributed line to my lower and upper lip. I was able to blend it with one of my favorite lip glosses and it created quite a stunning look. When your husband says your mouth looks different in a very good way, a girl definitely pays attention! I will look into purchasing more NARS products.
Acure Brightening Facial Scrub – I have not tried this yet. I’m nervous trying new face products as my skin is sensitive and I’m prone to breakouts. I will give this a go once I have the chance to do more research.
La Roche-Posay Lipikar Eczema Soothing Relief Cream – I do not have Eczema but I know someone who does so I had them try this and it was a hit. So much so that a full size was purchased. It was not greasy and calmed the flare up better than expected. The smell was overwhelmingly medicinal either, so that was a plus!
Nutrafol Hair Wellness from Within capsules came as a bonus. While they seem great, I already take Sugar Bear Hair supplements and they have been amazing. With Sugar Bear Hair I take 2 supplements but these capsules require 4 for the serving size and that’s more than I want to take. It’s a seven day supply that I will set aside for as a giveaway.
September’s Ipsy Glam Bag features some pretty great finds…and a little bit of a mess. The box was damaged in shipping but almost everything inside was undamaged. Included I found Nomad Cosmetics Underground Intense Eyeshadow Palette, Apto Skincare Pomegranate Mask, Ciate London Extraordinary Translucent Powder, Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in Solar, and Ofra Cosmetics Madison Miller Midi Palette.
