My Glam Bag | July 2013

This is incredibly belated because these photos were taken over a month ago now, but I have them, so why not post them? This is my latest Glam Bag, though I expect another will be arriving any day now as it's already mid-August, but shhhh.
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray Conditioning & Texturizing Spray
As much as I would love for these beach sprays to work, I find that they only ever make my hair feels like it needs another washing. However, my friend who has similar hair to mine loved it. So I don't know what's wrong with me. 
derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub
The word 'microdermabrasion' gives me chills enough without adding 'scrub' to it. Just sticking my fingertip in this made my face hurt. There is no way this is going on my face; my skin is far too sensitive and I don't really think microdermabrasion it meant to be done at home. 
COOLA Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented Moisturizer
I did use this a couple of times in LA because my fair skin will take all of the SPF it can get. I don't feel strongly about it, but it did the job without any sort of irritation! 
Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Polish in 'Pretty in Plum'
This was a bonus gift for referring people to Ipsy, but it's a really lovely colour! I don't have anything like it, but I like the formulation of Nicole by OPI, so I'm excited to use it. However, my new job means I won't be painting my nails for a very long time, so it'll have to wait! 
POP Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in 'Coral Crush'
This product is so creamy and pigmented! My main worry is that it would melt, both in the packaging and on the lips. I haven't worn it out, yet, but the colour is really nice! 
BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Sample
This purple colour is a new favourite. It's just such a pretty, unique colour from anything else that I have. The other two colours are also nice, just a little else memorable in my own collection. This is a nice palette, though, for just throwing in your bag to ensure you have some colour if you're going away or something.

Review | Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray

While I don't have oily skin most of the time, my face gets rather sweaty (glamourous!) in the heat. So before I went off to LA this summer, I picked up this sample size of the Urban Decay setting spray I've heard so much about over the years. I think for this to work 100%, you're meant to put it on before and after your makeup and I almost never remember to actually do that. However, this does work pretty well! I definitely notice my makeup lasting longer, though not all night, when I apply it. I'm heading down to Anaheim starting tomorrow to work in Disneyland for the semester and I'll definitely want to pick up the full-sized bottle of this to use while I'm at work! x
