Tarte Lipsurgence & Ofra Lip Liner|Review

ipsy glam bag review

In this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag that I received recently (full detailed post hit here), I got a sample size of Tarte Energy Lipsurgence and a regular Ofra Lip liner Pencil which I’m going to talk in more detail as you scroll down.



Here is the Opra Lip Liner in the shade Wine with net wt: 0.04 oz. This pencil is very effective in drawing nice curve lip lines and for filling in the lips. The texture is neither too buttery or dry. In terms of consistency in formula, I’ll give a 4/5 rating because of the awesome shade, pigmentation, formula and the matte finish.


The texture of the Tarte Energy Lipsurgence is very easy to apply. Sample size net wt: 1.5 ml. Made in Italy. It’s not overly goopy or sticky like a gloss might be. The applicator has a flat on it and I really like how it applies on my lips.The lipsurgence may feel a little heavier at first but very moisturizing and kissable! ❤


Who doesn’t love this houndstooth bag? Too cute the design and I saw pencil mug and notepad that has the same houndstooth on it while I was shopping for school suppliers at Walmart last weekend. I personally think it’s very trendy to use it as a pencil case if you’re a college or university students.

Ipsy Glam Bag For May – Unbagged



Ipsy Glam Bag for May 2015

It’s the time of the month again, and no – don’t worry it’s not PMS but exciting time to reveal what’s in my this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag! I really enjoy my April’s bag and let me tell you, this month’s glam bag is even better. I don’t only like but love all the samples I got here. Let’s just say that, I’m drawn into this conditioning spray too. Hey, who wouldn’t want to try a conditioning spray, right!

Alrighty, let the unbagging begins:-

ipsy bag

I’ll start with this awesome lip gloss from Urban Decay. Oh yeah!!!


Revolution High Color LipGloss by Urban Decay (Weight: 0.8 g) Valued for $22.00 the regular size tube. I shade I got is Failbait and Bittersweet. This cute sample packaging looks like the size of M&M except a little much bigger.

This Revolution High Color lipgloss comes in 14 lovely shades of plum, brown and pink. It claims to defines and hydrates lips while making them look plumper and fuller. The shades are insanely intense with high shine. On me, I find that it’s a little heavy on lips and slightly tacky. This lipgloss also has high-coverage and the formula is super-pigmented. I just love how amazing the shades are and the finish look is fabulous. With just one coat your lips will look awesomely sexy and glossy. The shade I tried today, is the Bittersweet. It’s a fun purple shade and I really like how the finishing lips feels. It’s like I’m wearing a lipstick with lip gloss on – only with one application. That’s super cool! I have sandwich for lunch and when I checked again, I still have a pretty lip stain on lips 😀

Available in regular size for $22 a tube at Urban Decay website with 14 insanely intense colors to wear this summer.

Urban Decay Lip pencil

I also received this Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on lip pencil valued for $20.00 which shake my heart. This is so crazy, I’m just so excited with this month’s ipsy bag. Oh my gosh! I got Ozone (which is a milky white shade that I love). I’m trying out to do another ombre lips and I can’t wait to try this bad boy. A full review will be up with the ombre look once I’ve tried it. This 24/7 Glide on lip pencil comes in 17 pretty shades for you to select and you simply can’t go wrong with any.  


BellaPierre Cosmetics Waterproof Mineral Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Ebony (Weight: 0.06 fl oz) and valued for $14.99. You can use the promo code: IPSYMAY2015 to get 15% discount on your purchase.

I says here on the box packaging that this gel eyeliner is formulated with Pure 100% mineral, natural waxes and anti oxidants. The texture is super creamy and intense pigmentation. It glides effortlessly on lash lines and the smooth application makes for an amazing coverage. I wore it the whole day yesterday and it didn’t budge or faded. So, in my opinion when a mineral gel eyeliner is waterproof, it’ll definitely be smudge-free!

The downside of this eyeliner is that you’ll need sharpener when the time comes. I notice that the formula feels like of kohl pencil. I really love this shade which is in Ebony black. It makes eyes more pop and a perfect eyeliner to do a cat eye look.


St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion (Weight: 50ml) and valued for $9.00 now on special discount.

This lightweight tinted lotion smoothes on to give you an instant natural-looking golden tan that will wash off whenever you choose. If you are like me and love to save some money, you can get 25% off if you use this promo code: IPSY25 when ordering.

Don’t be shocked by the color when you squeeze the lotion out. This body lotion might look like poop-y but it smells amazing. When applied on hand it feels smooth and relaxing. The formula absorbs quickly into skin and it’s not sticky at all. My skin sure does look more tan but I don’t see any obvious glow. This is an incredible product to wear for the summer if you ‘re looking to get some tan.


IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ is my wish come true. I’ve always wanted a higher SPF cream for my skin and I’m thrilled with the thought of actually getting one. I’m super excited and I can’t to wait to wear it on even under the scorching sun of 90F since SPF 50+ is considered high. Yay! Thank you Ipsy for this IT CC+ Cream ❤ sample.

You can use promo code IPSY20 to get a further discount of 20% off order of$25 or more. This product is valued for $38.00 in regular size. It’s available in 5 pretty shades. It’s give full coverage for redness or blemishes or even uneven skin tone.

I got my CC cream in Medium shade and I’m so going to try it out now. Oh my goodness! The scent is so super amazing. I’m in love ❤


Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray (Weight: 1.0 oz)

It says here behind the bottle that it nourish, repair and renew. It contains vitamin E to provide moisture and rosehip, argan and coconut oils to strengthen and protect against breakage. I’m more intrigued by the fact that you don’t have to rinse out after spraying this conditioner. I’m curious to find out and will report back.

When I spray it on hand it notice that it’s not sticky or creamy like a normal conditioner but more of a hair spray. It smells amazing. Very flowery scents that absorbs quickly. Oh my goodness!!!You really have to try this fresh scents. I’m loving the scents already.
