Review: January Ipsy Glam Bag

Whoever made beauty subscription services a thing was a freakin' genius. Getting beauty products in the mail every month is like Christmas again and again. January's Ipsy Glam Bag was overall a solid bag. Some not so great things, but Ipsy is great at being consistently good.

Benefit the POREfessional
This primer has been circulating the blogosphere for quite some time. I was happy to see it in my glam bag so I could finally give it a go without having to purchase it. It's as I expected: all right. It gave my skin that satin finish that I used to love and want from a primer, but have since changed my mind. I don't understand the change of heart either, but I like my primer to leave my skin like it is. I can't really comment on whether or not it minimized my pores because I don't have overly noticeable pores in the first place. 

Balanced Guru Balm Me Up Organic Sweet Cocoa & Tangy Body Balm
Probably my least favorite product of the bag, this stuff was just too greasy for my liking. Plus the smell was too strong and the texture made me weary. 

Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Tissues
I'm usually not a fan of any of the makeup remover tissues Ipsy includes in their glam bags, but this one wasn't all that bad. It wasn't amazing at removing makeup, but it didn't smell all that bad and only left a slight residue on my skin after use.

(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm
The shocker of the bag, I actually really enjoyed this lip balm. I'm very stubborn in my lip balm ways and really only use just regular vasaline to moisturize my lips. It didn't have a weird scent and wasn't too heavy on the lips. I was happily surprised.

yaby Liquid Foundation in "Buff"
This foundation was missing something. I still can't pin down exactly what, but there was just something about it that left me wanting and eager to clean it off and apply my preferred foundation. I think it just didn't sit right on my skin or something.
