Ipsy January 2018

Pretty Woman Nail Polish in shade "Johnny's Angels"
Full Size Price: $7.99
This is a bright neon blue nail polish that is 10-Free. The formula itself is not too thick and applied opaque in two coats, although I did three coats to avoid a streaky look. The polish itself is beautifully pigmented but I did find that it chipped easily. I enjoy the overall formula and color so I would consider purchasing other shades. From my research, this does appear to be a full size product this month.

Mudmasky Sleep Repair Renewal Nourishing Mask
Full Size Price: $84.00
Sample size value is approximately: $21.00
This is a sleep repair mask that claims to repair, protect, and nourish your skin while you sleep. It claims to make your skin look visibly less tired and reduce dark under-eye circles, as well as feeling more smooth and energized. The formula is thin and has a slight cooling effect when applied. It carries a natural scent that isn't too strong. I wasn't entirely comfortable with the idea of wearing a mask to bed but this one does set into the skin quite quickly so I didn't have any issues wearing it. I did find my skin felt a bit more hydrated after use but I do think with a product like this, you need to use it for a prolonged period of time. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

the Balm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.20
This is a honey-hued luminizer that can be used as a highlighter, shadow, and shimmer to diffuse light so your skin looks softer and younger. I found this to be a beautiful shade that suited my skin tone quite nicely. I used it as a highlighter and found that it blended with ease and gave me just the right amount of shine that I prefer. I would purchase the full size of this product.

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal  + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo
Full Size Price: $42.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.25
This is a unique shampoo that is infused with Binchoatan charcoal to draw impurities from the scalp and hair follicles to provide the foundation for better scalp health. It also contains vegetable derived micro-exfoliators to remove dead skin cells and product build-up. It contains a blend of peppermint, spearmint, tea tree, and coconut oils. It is safe to use on color treated, keratin treated, chemically-treated, and relaxed hair and is ideal for those with a dry, irritated, and flaky scalp. The formula of the product is almost like a face mask, it carries a strong minty and coconut scent that does linger after use. I found that it felt nice on the scalp and I could see myself using this product when my scalp is dry or irritated. I would consider purchasing the full size.

NYX Lip Lingerie in shade "Satin Ribbon"
Full Size Price: $7.00
I have wanted to try this line of liquid lipsticks for some time so I was excited to give this a try. This is a matte liquid lipstick that I received in a very nude shade. The formula is on the thicker side but it does apply nicely to the lips, it does end up being a bit drying which is to be expected with matte finishes. Unfortunately, the color is a bit too nude for my skin tone so while I enjoy the formula, this shade isn't for me. From my research, this does appear to be a full size product this month. I would love to try other shades!

My January Glam Bag is valued at $48.44.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $38.44.

Overall, I enjoyed this month's bag as it had a good combination of beauty products that were new to me. My favorite product from this month's bag was the highlighter.
