It’s no secret that I’m not really a huge gloss fan.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I think they are ugly or anything – it’s just that I have long hair that ALWAYS gets stuck to my lips and I’m not a fan of the sticky icky… ya know?  So, when I find a gloss that is not only gorgeous but also isn’t sticky – I’m a fan… like totally.  Jesses Girl is a brand that I’ve loved for a few years now since first trying something from the line about 5 years ago (or so) and I remember seeing the release of these Glow Stix Lip Glosses a year or so back.  I honestly thought they looked cool, but didn’t really think it would be something I’d enjoy – until I used them.  Today I’m going to share with you my thoughts on these Jesses Girl Glow Stix Lip Glosses… and you can decide if they are something you’ll want to check out too.

Jesses Girl Glow Stix Lip Glosses are available in three colors and retail for $4.99 (net. wt. – 0.05 oz / 1.5 mL each).  These are stunning iridescent, holographic topcoat glosses that feel really really nice on the lips.  As I mentioned previously, I’m not a fan of gloss because they tend to be sticky and get caught in my hair – but I found after using these that they are quite comfortable on the lips.  I have had these now for over a month and have used them to top my favorite lip colors and have also used them on their own.

The available shades are: Red Dawn, Tangerine and Wicked.

Red Dawn is clear iridescent gloss with an orange hue and a red shift.  It is my favorite of the three to top over a pink lipstick shade because it really enhances the lipstick color.

Ingredients:  Cholesteryl oleyl carbonate, Cholesteryl chloride, Cholesteryl noanoate, BHT

Tangerine is a clear iridescent gloss with a yellow hue and a green shift.  This is a gorgeous color to top pink or nude lipsticks to enhance the color.

Ingredients: Cholesteryl oleyl carbonate, Cholesteryl chloride, Cholesteryl noanoate, BHT

Wicked is the boldest out of the three shades in my opinion.  It is a clear iridescent gloss with a green hue and a blue shift.  I have been enjoying putting this gloss over red lipsticks or deep fuchsia or berry colors.

Ingredients: Cholesteryl oleyl carbonate, Cholesteryl chloride, Cholesteryl noanoate, BHT

Each shade on my lips was applied with two coats of gloss and minimal blotting so that you could see the color effect that the glosses provided.   However, when I use these glosses, I usually will pucker my lips together for a more natural look.  The photo below is what my lips look like if I pucker them up and blend and distribute the color much more evenly on my lips.  This is how I would wear it on it’s own if used without any base.

These lip glosses, while made and designed to be toppers actually make really nice glosses on their own.  They feel comfortable on the lips and while they need to be reapplied after drinking, eating and some talking, they give your lips a gorgeous glossy look with a color hue.  I really enjoy wearing them on their own and love that my lips feel moisturized and hydrated when I have them on.

The lip gloss comes with your standard doe foot type of applicator – but I like it, it applies the gloss nicely and I can easily trace the outline of my lips without any issues.

The packaging on these lip glosses is simple but very fun.  It’s basic and allows you to see through to the iridescent holographic color inside which I think is super cool.  While these shades do not fully glow in the dark, because of the type of colors they are – you can see a hint of them under a black light.  I don’t have pictures to show you but I noticed it on accident while at a party – you could see a yellow hue to my lips – I thought it was pretty cool.  These lip glosses are obviously not something you would expect to use but once you try them, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how cool they are.  I definitely think they are fun and I love using them on their own.  They are not kiss proof – which I mentioned before, but they feel so comfortable on the lips that I enjoy using them.

So how about you, do you think you would like these funky glow stix glosses?  I think they are fun and definitely worth checking out at that price point.  I suggest picking up at least one and having some fun.

You can purchase these beauties at: https://www.jessesgirlcosmetics.com/ or at your local Rite Aid.  We don’t have Rite Aid here so I order online and enjoy the affordable and quick shipping.

It seems like forever since I posted about my Ipsy Glam Bags on my blog or even did a video about it – so I decided I would talk about this month’s bag.  I have been an Ipsy subscriber now since December 2011 but it seems like this year I experienced many challenges with shipping and I’m sad to say that I will ride it out till the end of the year and probably cancel.  Here are the goodies in my Ipsy Glam Bag October 2014.

Ipsy Glam Bag - October 2014

 

REFERRAL LINKS

Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription and includes a variety of beauty products from skincare, makeup, nail polish and nail care and hair goodies.  This months theme: Beauty Candy included a variety of brands, some of which we have received in our bags before and some new.

This month I received the following products:

Ecru New York Acacia Protein BB Cream Beauty Balm for Hair – I received another beauty balm (bb cream) for hair in last months bag and never used it.  Honestly, I don’t know that I would be using this product so I’ll be putting it on the side.  Full size is 1.0 fl oz and retails for $12.00.  The full size product was sent in this month’s bag.

Figs & Rouge Shea Butter Limited Edition Hand cream – we all know I’m a lotion addict and I am looking forward to tossing this in my bag and adding it to my lotion stash.  I received a sample size (maybe deluxe sample) tube of the product.  Full size product is 20ml / 0.67 fl oz and retails for $6.56.  Full size product was sent in this month’s bag.

Jesse’s Girl Mineralized Baked Powder Shadow – this shadow color is really nice and I guess you can never have enough eye shadow.  The full sized product was included in this month’s bag and retails for $3.99

Starlook’s Lip Gloss – this nude toned gloss is really nice and not sticky which I enjoy.  This would be great for travel because it is really tiny.  A Sample sized was received in this month’s box of Guilty Pleasure.  This gloss retails for $12.00 full sized – I’m unsure of the amount included in full size or sample.

Skyn Iceland Mini Glazier Cleansing Cloths – I haven’t used these yet but I’m always a bit leery when it comes to makeup remover wipes or cleansing cloths because of my sensitive skin.  I’ll be sure to do a mini review if I test them out.  These clothes retail for $15.00 for a full sized packet that includes 30 wipes.  The sample included in this month’s bag includes 10 cloths and would retail for approximately $5.00.

Total retail value for the products received in the October 2014 Ipsy bag = $30.00.  This is an estimated value as there is one or two items that I needed to guess the actual amount due to the sample size.  Overall you are getting your money’s worth from the bag, but this bag’s retail value for products included is probably one of the cheapest I have had in the last year.

Ipsy Glam Bag - October 2014

Overall at $10 a month it’s still a pretty good deal considering the number of products you receive.  I haven’t been at all excited for my bags lately because they really haven’t showcased the “wow” factor for me.  While I’m sure I’ll get use out of this month’s contents – especially the makeup bag, I wish there were more items that I could utilize this fall.  I would have loved to see a bronze or brown shadow in the mix.  If you are interested in signing up for Ipsy – it is $10 a month or you can decide to sign up for a full year and get a discount.  You can sign up here: http://www.ipsy.com/r/1o41?sid=ipsypoints&cid=general

Have you tried the Ipsy subscription service?  What do you think of it?  I know I didn’t get into a lot of detail with regard to the bag… but as I use the products (if I use them), I’ll be sure to post about them.
