2014-10-19 03.38.57 (480x360)

    This month’s IPSY bag theme is Candy Glam. What does that mean? Your guess is as good as mine and I don’t think IPSY knows the answer either. None of the products are similar to candy or even colorful. Whatevs I like what’s in the bag and that’s what matters. Ipsy is a monthly […]
