It's that time of the month again where I get all three of my wonderful subscription boxes. I filmed the unboxing of all of these, but will have a separate post for each box for the in depth view at each of them. As I have not used any of these before or in great depth besides merely taking them out of the bag and briefly testing them, I am holding off on opinions of the products until that has been done. If I enjoyed them or loathed them, they will most likely end up in my monthly love and loathe.

This was the favorite subscription box that I got this month as it had the most items that I would use on a regular basis. Even though it's the only subscription box that doesn't come with an info card about the products.

This month for Ipsy GlamBag that was titled "Dreamers" included the following items:

Luxie Brush No. 522 Tapered Highlighter

Though it's not the rose gold color, I still love the soft blue. The brush is $24.00 on LuxieBeauty.com. They are synthetic, cruelty free, and vegan. I love how soft the brush is.

Briogeo Don't Despair Repair Gel-to-oil Overnight Repair Treatment

Full size is 2 fl oz and costs $28.00. As there is not an info card, I got this information about the product from Sephora.

What it is:
An overnight repair treatment to strengthen, restore moisture, repair split ends, and increase elasticity, shine, and luster while you sleep. 

What it is formulated to do:
This nutrient-rich hair treatment gel melts into an oil to release Briogeo's signature NOVA complex in its purest, most potent state. This complex encapsulates a reparative blend of natural oils, vitamins, and antioxidants which prevents oxidation, thereby exposing hair to fresh nutrients as the formula melts down upon use. A unique blend of biotin, argan oil, rosehip oil, algae extract, and coconut alkanes strengthens hair, replenishes moisture, and increases elasticity to make hair more resistant to breakage, while enhancing shine and luster as your sleep. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
This product should be used once a week. In between treatments, use one of Briogeo’s regimen shampoo/conditioner sets, such as Rosarco Repair Shampoo & Conditioner, Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner, or Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Shea Curl Defining Shampoo & Conditioner. This formula is formulated without silicones, DEA, and artificial dyes. It is cruelty-free and contains organic ingredients. The unique gel-to-oil format provides for no-mess application, is color-safe, and safe for use on chemically-treated, relaxed, and keratin-treated hair.

Nude Stick Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic

This goes on really easily and is every creamy. One stick is $25.00. According to Sephora:

What it is: 
A long-lasting, multitasking pencil that delivers natural-looking coverage and ultra-creamy, soft color and liner for cheeks and lips. 

What it does: 
This award-winning, extra creamy lip color, lip liner, lip balm, and cheek color pencil is super soft and offers “four-in-one” color payoff and smooth blendability—without feathering or bleeding for a soft, natural-looking lip. This lip and cheek pencil is infused with lip and skin moisturizing ingredients, including shea butter and vitamin E, and peptides to add radiance and support youthful plumpness. This bestselling product is a dual-action, touch n’go makeup stick provides a quick and easy look, full of fresh-faced fun and ultimate color.

- 0.05 oz Lip + Cheek Pencil
- Black pencil case

What it is formulated WITHOUT: 
- Parabens

What else you need to know: 
NUDESTIX is the brainchild of sisters Ally and Taylor (as well as their chemical engineer mother, Jenny), who love all-out natural makeup, opting for that barely-there look with only a touch of color to accentuate their finest features. After explaining that current makeup brands and collections simply don’t apple to their no-nonsense attitude, they created this concealer pencil. NUDESTIX believes that your natural skin should thrive, and that you only need to cover here and there to get that perfectly, "go nude but better" look.

This product is certified USDA organic, has been dermatologist-tested for the most sensitive skin, and it is hypoallergenic, gluten-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and free of preservatives and fragranc
