Here's my review for my Ipsy Glam Bag for February 2014….
Ugh this post has taken me way longer to put up than I wanted it to, but quite honestly I have been dreading it. Let me just say really quickly, that I really don't like to give bad reviews on my blog, I would rather not say anything at all, especially with small businesses, I contact them personally, and if they don't fix the problem, I just don't purchase from them again, and I do leave honest reviews on every company I purchase from's website's, but I HAVE had an Etsy seller contact me for saying a cosmetic glitter they sold me was bigger than I thought it would be, bigger than her other glitters, and that it was good for eyes, but not for lips, and she contacted me, and very rudely informed me that it wasn't for use on lips, which was not stated in the description, and I honestly I didn't feel like I gave her a bad review. I don't want to deal with that drama on here, so most of the time if I have had an issue with a seller, whether it's customer service, or drama/bullying, I just won't post a review, but I'll still post pics on Facebook, and Instagram. Honesty is very important to me, I don't doctor my pictures at all, and I use the pictures that on my computer/phone look the closest to what it really looks like on me, and I make sure to tell you guys when I use undies, and how many coats I had to use. Enough of my little rant, onto my bad review. I was so excited about this months Glam Bag, I have been taking care of a sick baby for a week, and have been sick myself most of that time, so I thought trying my stuff out would make me feel better, pretty on the outside, and then I was soooo disappointed , I am really hoping that my reviews on Ipsy will help me start getting better stuff.
First off we have the Zoya Polish in Dot, Now, I have my hair color on Ipsy listed as other, and my make-up style as Hip/edgy, and I threw in Club goer, just because I like to put glitter on all the things!!! I have posted all the nail looks I have done since I joined on there, and I just don't know what about my Goth-A-Billy butt made them send me a baby pink nail polish! Baby pink is by far the smallest section, of my massive polish collection, and I already have WAY too many of them, and would reach for ANY of them before reaching for Dot, so I would've liked to have gotten the purple/mauve color Odette better, but even besides that, this is the worst Zoya polish I have ever used, if this was the first one I tried I would think it was an awful brand, and never buy it again, it was streaky, yet thick enough to take forever to dry, after the first coat I thinned it out, which didn't help with the streaks but at least made it dry faster. This is 3 coats with 1 coat of Black Cat Lacquer Lucky Star, and 2 coats of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat…..
I got Fuchsia Freesia in the Pop Color Gloss, I was hoping to get the Peony Petal color, a dusty mauve. It's pretty, and feels fine, but it smells awful, which makes it taste kinda weird as well. My hair is pink, so I have a billion Hot Pink/ Fuchsia/Magenta Lip colors already, and again would reach for ALL of them before this one because they smell and taste better.
Oh it burns, it burns! Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud, I love masks, and I just wasn't impressed, and it did really burn through my T-Zone, and my chin is breaking out badly today, just a couple days later.
I am glad that I only spent $10 to try out a bunch of stuff to know not to buy it, but most of the stuff I've gotten in my first 2 months, I wouldn't have bought, but I would've been happy if they sent my the other options in those categories for a lot of the things I have been disappointed in, hopefully they listen to your feedback, and my bags will get better, if not, I don't know how much longer I'm going to do it.
