Makeup is used to embellish our natural beauty just as much as it is used to cover up our flaws. Many people search for the “perfect” makeup brand or tool that will give them a flawless canvas, but the truth is all types of makeup have positive and negative attributes. Sometimes it is simply a matter of preference. Still, it does not stop people from comparing brands. For example, one common question many people seem to ask is if airbrush makeup is better than traditional makeup and vice versa.
It’s no secret that the better you feel about yourself and your appearance, the more confident you feel on the inside, which can lead to a far happier you. However, it can be a challenge to keep up with the countless beauty gurus and celebrities in the media, which can lead to you feeling less attractive. Firstly, you’re already beautiful, so stop comparing yourself to those who have a glam squad following them around all day. Next; it’s time to work out the little ways that you can give yourself a beauty boost, and get that confidence back no matter what your budget or lifestyle may be. Therefore, you’ll need to get out your notebook and pen and start writing down some ideas for your next pamper session.
I am totally impressed with this product ‘Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer.’ I love to see an eyeshadow that is popping with pigments whether bold or nude on any and every skin tone. This is what the Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer does; it enhances the quality of the eyeshadow by providing a strong hold and colour vibrancy.
Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow PrimerThe product is creamy and glides onto eyes smoothly by using the tip of a flat brush.With the Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer I did not experience any product fall out, creasing or wrinkling in my eye area. The product does not tug while being applied as it goes on smoothly. Blending in eyeshadow is also easy with this product.
There were no signs of colour fading after wearing my eyeshadow for several hours. And as the rule says a little goes a long way; therefore excessive use of the product is not needed to get your eyeshadow to pop.
PackagingThe Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer comes in a 10-gram container with material made from polyethylene and terephthalate. The product can be easily identified with the labeling on top cover.
Where can it be purchased?Anyhow, the product is not 100% easy to come by as it is not widely available. It is made in Trinidad and sold for TT$12.

There I was scrolling through Facebook and I came across this flawless, amazingly defined eyebrows. I immediately had to inquire about the product that was used to get the eyebrows to perfection. After doing a thorough research on the brow gel I consider buying and trying the product. Only to find out that the product used is a brow gel that was made in Trinidad. It is cruelty-free. Anyhow, I still got a hold of the product and I must say it is one of the best brow gel product that I have ever used.
I have used many other brow products from different brands such as MAC cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics, NYX cosmetics etc. but it’s my first time coming across a brow product that is so creamy and not drying.
When it comes to what’s in your wardrobe, a neutral, monochrome, and nude color palette is often an easy and versatile route to take. However, there’s no need to shy away from vibrant hues and pattern, in fact, a neutral palette provides the perfect backdrop for an array of color choices; you just have to know how to add a bright shade to your outfit.
Before I start my Ipsy rant and response let me tell you a little about Ipsy. Ipsy is a subscription bag that is curated by Michelle Phan. It cost only $10 monthly to purchase a glam bag. These glam bags are hand-picked and curated just for you based on a personalized questionnaire. It asks questions like what is your eye colour, hair colour and texture, brands that you would like to try, favorite Ipsy stylist and much more.
I have changed the answer to my quiz several times but I still receive products that I have no use for. Even though you take the quiz the products that you received in your glam bag are a 50/50 chance of matching your personal preference. I love the idea of receiving a glam bag each month with makeup but if they can’t get it right then I might just cancel my subscription.
If Ipsy has similar products but different brand why do they insist on giving you products from the same brand again? I received an eyeshadow from theBalm cosmetics even though the shades are different. I feel as if ipsy could have given me something else; like the TooFaced Primer that would even work well with the previous eyeshadow.
Ipsy Customer Care Response
I had message ipsy prior regarding this matter and I was given a long explanation. Please see below
Message from Ipsy
I had received some really great products from Ipsy that I could really use. I hate how Ipsy would get you all excited sharing sneak peeks day-after-day, then to unveil the glam room and it is not what you wanted or a close duplicate of the same brand that they already sent you. For July’s glam bag I have three products from brands that I had already reviewed and tested.
My July Ipsy Glam Room
Same brand, similar product
Ipsy had other items of the same similarity that they could have included in my glam bag. For instance, they could have substituted the Luxie Brush for the brush from Revlon, Sedona Lace or Vasanti brush. Instead of another theBalm eyeshadow, it could have been substituted for the Too Faced primer, EM mascara, Benefit Ka-brow and also for Ofra Lip Liner the EM Lip balm, Glam Glow or anything else; seeing that I always receive stuff from those brands in previous glam bags. Ipsy repeating the same brand in glam bags over and over can become pretty boring. Even though the items that I received in a prior glam bag are of a different shade, style etc.
These are products that I received in prior glam bags
I swear I felt depressed after seeing my glam room, I was so hoping for something different. And I wouldn’t want to cancel since I get some stuff that I could really use and for the price; it is well worth it. Just hoping that Ipsy steps their game up anytime soon.
If you share the same sentiments as myself feel free to leave a comment below.
Creams are a blend of oil and liquid which contains a higher percentage of oil. Creams are often thicker and soft like butter. They absorb way quicker than oils, but their moisturizing properties tend to last longer than lotions. On the other hand, some oils can be greasy and take a while to absorb into the skin while others can absorb in a matter of minutes without leaving a greasy feeling to the skin.
