This month's glambag is so cute! I absolutely love the design and color, which I can be picky about! The coral pink accent goes so well with the theme. It's very summery! As for the items, I got a one skincare item and the rest were makeup, which I honestly prefer. But some items weren't as great as others. Let's get into the review...
FIRMA BEAUTY | 204 Wide Blender
CLAIMS: All of FIRMA BEAUTY’s fab tools are skillfully handcrafted by Japanese artisans. With ultra-soft wide bristles, this brush is ideal for applying shadow evenly and effortlessly with zero streaks or smudges. The bristles are synthetic, so this brush is totally vegan and cruelty-free.
MY REVIEW: This brush exceeded my expectations. I didnt think it would do much but it’s dense and soft enough to apply a good amount of product and blend it out! It made application of shadow quicker and easier than a lot lid burgees. I didnt have to go in and keep packing on the product because the brush applied a good amount and helped blend it out.
PACIFICA BEAUTY| Bronzer Blush Duo
CLAIMS: The bronzer has a matte finish, which makes it great for nixing shine on those extra humid days. The blush will leave you with a natural-looking, rosy sheen. Each of these shades is long-wearing, highly-pigmented, and blends smoothly (no splotchiness happening here). It’s great for travel, and the pans are perfectly sized and shaped for your blush and angled highlighter brushes to swirl in with ease. The compact has a handy mirror on the back for easy application when you’re on-the-go.
MY REVIEW: I was so excited to get this because I want to use more Pacifica products and I’m a sucker for bronzers and blushes. Both colors are a natural shade which Is what I prefer and they’re very buildsbke while still looking natural which is impressive. They blend well too! Also, this compact includes a mirror on the back which is a convenient size and quality!
LARITZY COSMETICS| Dew Pot in Utopia
CLAIMS: The texture feels like a pomade (as in, for hair) so it goes on ultra-smooth and blends easy. Even though it’s a pomade, you apply it just the way you would a liquid or cream highlighter—just dab some on and blend wherever you want to glow. It looks so good on the highpoints of your face, but also over blush for a subtle hint of radiance. This highlighter is made with an ultra-fine shimmer that enhances every skin tone. Plus, it’s long-lasting and doesn’t feel the least bit heavy or sticky on your skin.As if we needed another reason to love, this baby is cruelty-free.
MY REVIEW: I immediately gave this away because I not only prefer powder highlight but this one is also a very very shimmery gold pink which is not a go to for me. The consistency is nice and it blends our well but I just don’t use that shade.
CIATÉ LONDON| Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer
CLAIMS: Watermelon extract droplets help to hydrate your skin and replenish moisture for a dewy, healthy complexion.The pink jelly formula is not only fun (and pretty) to use, it helps brighten up dullness and refine your pores.The texture feels so light and refreshing, you’ll barely feel it on under your makeup. Sweat, heat, and humidity are no match when you prep your foundation with this baby. Not only does it create a barrier to prevent makeup from smudging, it grips onto foundation so it stays in place all day. Like all CIATÉ LONDON products, this primer is vegan and cruelty-free.
MY REVIEW: I was very skeptical of this primer because I rarely hear about watermelon in primers and it had beads so to me this primer seemed cheap and more for show than quality. But I was SO wrong! This primer is a new holy grail for me. It is such a good primer for foundation because it is so tacky and really grabs onto anything you lay on top. In fact a little goes a long way and if you put too much it can leave your face a bit sticky so I have to set with powder for sure even after I layer it with other products! But since it’s summer and it’s hot and humid, this primer is a life saver. It’s easy to blend, works very well, and smells so juicy! Perfect scent for summer. I highly reccomend this primer, especially if you’re oily and need your makeup to STAY PUT.
FEEL | Mindful Palo Santo Soothing Mask
CLAIMS: This mask is infused with energy clearing palo santo (aka “holy wood”) essential oil. Adaptogenic mushrooms immediately help your skin relax. A healthy dose of lavender and chamomile help soothe and calm sensitive skin. This mask is totally vegan.
MY REVIEW: This mask does go on smoothly and feels so soothing but I could not stand the smell of it. It smelled too much of mushrooms and while I love eating mushrooms I’m not crazy about their scent.
