I’ll Be Home

Of course, the first product from this month’s Glam Bag X that I tried out was the nail polish!

This is two coats of Lights Lacquer “I’ll Be Home” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it’s a matte polish! I think I’ll try it with a snowflake top coat next!

I did top my index and middle fingers with Glisten & Glow Top Coat for two reasons. First, I wanted to see what the polish looked like with a shiny finish…but my second reason was that these two nails always chip quickly. Instead of my usual thumb/ring finger accent nails, I’ve started doing my index/middle fingers if it involves more layers of polish or top coat. I’ll say that it paid off, because with those two nails protected – the manicure lasted much longer! I actually did my thumb and index finger on my right hand – I recently ripped off my right thumb nail in a freak laptop accident and it’s super weak.


November 2022 Glam Bag X – Becky G

Sure, I’ve heard of Becky G…DISGUSTANG!

I kid, I kid…I know she is a music person of some sort. She’s the curator for this quarter’s Glam Bag X.

I am on the fence about my product choices this month. I really like the nail polish set that I picked – Lights Lacquer Nail Duo in “Mila” and “I’ll Be Home”. This brand is new to me – it’s from a YouTuber named Kathleenlights. The lippie I picked it mid – Kenia Ontiveros Beauty Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Pink Vibes”…but the lipstick isn’t pink – it’s more of a terra cotta? I haven’t had a chance to try the Balance Me Tri-Molecular Hyaluronic Serum yet.

So. Too Faced has been on my “no buy” list since the brand was outed as SUPER TRANSPHOBIC, not to mention RACIST. I just don’t feel the need to give them my money…so I was super disappointed to receive the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette instead of one of the Tresluce Beauty palettes. Oh well. I’ve been using it this week, and it’s fine I guess…but only two of the shades are peach? The shades in this palette are super confusing to me – why so much purple? The peachy scent is nice, at least.

Also in this quarter’s Glam Bag X: F.A.R.A.H. The Skin Retreat Set (looks like magic wands for my face – I haven’t played with them yet); Herbivore Botanicals Pink Cloud Soft Moisture Cream (this one has a slightly dank odor – like mushrooms or something?); Kate Somerville DeliKate Soothing Cleanser (it’s VERY creamy); and Milk Makeup Rise Lifting & Lengthening Mascara (my daughter tried to steal it, but I wouldn’t let her have it).

A great bag this quarter and I’ll use at least 75% of it!
