Oh hey, it’s glam bag time!

So, I’m not positive from the insert what this month’s theme is…and their website doesn’t make it any clearer, so I’m going with “Happy Friendsgiving”. The bag is pretty cute – you cannot tell from the picture, but the inside is lined with hot pink nylon.

This month’s bag is an odd assortment of products: Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara; Pistache Skincare Whipped Pistachio Body Butter (it smells like pistachio pudding – I love it – I left it on the coffee table to use, but my kids better keep their paws off it); Pretty Woman Nail Polish in “Wine with Ice, Garcon” (I don’t even drink wine); Ciate London Mini Translucent Setting Powder in “Hideout”; and theBalm Cosmetics Nude Beach Eyeshadow in “Brave”.

Like I said, the products don’t seem to go together this month, but they each seem great individually.

April 2018 Ipsy Bag – Social Butterfly

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on

LOOK at this month’s ipsy bag – rose gold butterflies! I’m dead.

The Pretty Woman Nail Polish in “Girl Boss” was the first product that caught my eye – it’s a dusty rose that matches the bag. Also in this month’s bag: Firma Beauty Angled Blender Brush; Ciate London Starstruck Double-Ended Stamp Liquid Liner (well, if I want to look like Kat Von D); Bubble T Cosmetics Lemongrass & Green Tea Stimulating Hand Cream; and Hempz Herbal Lip Balm (tee hee – hemp).

A solid bag, if a bit on the hippy side.

Blood Moon

I am OBSESSED with this season of American Horror Story. I am even going to force my sister to take me to Roanoke next year….during the daytime, of course. I have no interest in seeing a REAL Blood Moon.

My Blood Moon is ciate London “Dangerous Affair”, from my August’s ipsy bag. Now I know why people go nuts over ciate – this polish is amazing. Not too thick, not too thin – just perfect. and the brush is wide and flat – one of the most perfect nail polish brushes I have ever used. Am I gushing? I feel like I’m gushing.

I started with Orly Bonder. This is two coats. The first coat had a few streaks, likely because the polish has a bit of a jelly to it. It was fully opaque at two coats though. I finished with “HK Girl”.

Next time I see ciate at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s…it’s MINE.

This month’s “Sugar Highness” bag is all about living the glam fantasy. Inside this month’s adorable “makeup princess” bag: ciate London Paint Pot in “Dangerous Affair” (Finally – I’ve been wanting to try ciate SO bad); tarte tarteist Lash Paint (another YASSSS); NOMAD Makeup Eye Shadow in “Marrakesh – Spice Market”; thisworks In Transit Camera Close-Up Mask, Moisturizer and Primer in One (hold the phone – is this for real?); and Peter Lamas Supreme Radiance Complexion Booster.

This set of products FUCKING KICKS ASS. I am loving all of my products this month!
