Tres Jolie | Ipsy Glambag March 2017 Unbagging

Pretty is as pretty does.
— Ipsy

This month's glambag is all about products to make your world more beautiful and a little card to pass along to others that says: "You are beautiful." And the bag is a gorgeous pale pink bag with a fold over top and a silver patterned back. It's so pretty! Plus the bag could easily be used as a on-the-go makeup bag as you can unfold the top and get more room to store things. I will probably end up using it whenever I travel.

If you haven't heard of Ipsy before, it is a monthly subscription that sends you five products curated to your beauty profile that you complete on their website and costs $10.

Products Received

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa

This eyeshadow is a gorgeous rose color that is so gorgeous for Spring! You can make it look more natural by applying it dry, but making it wet makes the color so vamped up. Doucce sells this on their website for $10 and they do have a total of 82 different shades. They are also cruelty free!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer

I love trying out new moisturizers as my skin really is picky about moisturizers, and I had yet to find one that when applied didn't irritate my skin.  And this one applies smoothly without bothering my sensitive skin. Which I really love! Plus this formula is very lightweight so you don't feel it underneath all your other makeup. I also love that this product is free of: parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs, and triclosan. And it has colloidal oatmeal that soothes itchiness which often comes with dry skin. As well as shea butter and avocado oil for hydration. The full size is 1.7 oz and costs $24. First Aid Beauty is cruelty free!

Tarte Quick Dry Matte Lip in Rose

I love Tarte products so I was super excited to see this appear in my glambag, especially as it's something that I've been wanting to try for a while now. And I completely agree with the claim that it is quick drying, in the unbagging video the product was dry on my lips by the time I closed out the video and I didn't cut out any time for that to happen. I only sped up the application process by a few seconds.

This shade is a nude rose tone which I can see myself wearing a lot for this upcoming Spring season. A full size tube is 0.20 oz and costs $20.

Chella Eyebrow Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace

I had never heard of Chella before, so I did some research and can confirm that they are cruelty free. And this highlighter gives a natural look that is perfect for brightening your look. This pencil costs $18.

Beau Gachis Tapered Blending Brush

This brush is $12 on Beau Gachis website. I tested out this brush with the eyeshadow from earlier and it blended the product so evenly. And would be perfect to either blend shadows in your crease or apply highlighter onto your face. I couldn't find on their website if they are a cruelty free company or not, but they do list that one of the ingredients of their brush is natural animal hair mixed with synthetics. So since I cannot find any information on that I'm going to go with Beau Gachis is NOT cruelty free. Which bothers me to no end.
