Ipsy is a monthly, beauty, subscription service. You get about 5 deluxe sample or full-size products to try out. It is a great way to learn about and experiment with different brands and types of products for only $10 a month!
“Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes” Acure Organics These are alright. I’m not really blown away by them. The wipes are a great size! Huge compared to the Proactive ones I’ve been using for a while! I wouldn’t mind if they were a bit more saturated. The smell is kind of strange. It’s one of those “unscented” dusty kind of smells. They didn’t do a great job at taking off eye makeup. They also burned my eyes and the eye area.
Evelyn Iona Cosmetics “Cream Blush” in Ash This is a very pretty color: a pinky peach, and it has a pretty decent formula. The sample sized pot is pretty small. I had a tough time fitting my E.L.F Small Stippling Brush in it. But other than that I like it!
Crown Brush “Oval Concealer Brush” I’m not a fan of using brushes for my face makeup. I prefer sponges. I did give this one a go. It was okay. It took a long time to blend the outer edges of concealer because it is so small. I will probably just use it as an eyeshadow brush from now on. When I first used it, the brush had a LOT of bristles fall out! I was pretty shocked. I gave it a good wash and pulled out a lot more. Finally, it stopped shedding and I was able to let it dry. I haven’t had any more fall out yet.
J. Cat Beauty “#MOTD Waterproof Slide on Pencil for Eyes” in Bronze, I am really mixed about this pencil. The packaging makes you think that it is going to be a pretty, shimmery, copper/ bronze color. It’s more or of a regular brown with a slight hint of shimmer to it. It is creamy and blendable. It does not stick to my waterline, but it works fine on my lash line.
NYX Cosmetics “Ipsy Eye Shadow Trio” This is a very pretty looking, basic palette created just for Ipsy. This would be great to create a light, smoky eye look. The shadows are not as pigmented as they look. The black came out gray and the two shimmer colors hardly show up at all. On the website, they say you can use the shadows wet or dry. I wet the lightest shade to make the shimmer more intense. It hardly made a difference.
Overall I am not very impressed with this month’s bag. Normally I really like what I get, but his time was a miss. Better luck next month I hope!

You can never go wrong with the high quality, luxe products from Vapour. The Mesmerize Eye Color does not fall short. Just like the rest of the brand, these sticks, creamy eyeshadows are made from organic and mineral ingredients and are just beautiful to use as well as have on display…
Winter is upon us. Often along with the beautiful, snowy scenes, and cozy clothes, we get dry skin. Exfoliating and moisturizing are two things that I forget to do very easily. But thank goodness there are products out there that can do both at the same time. I’ve just tried Lemongrass Spa’s Pomegranate Body Polish and was blown away by how well it can multi-task…
Since graduating high school in 2014 I haven’t done much to further my education. Instead, I took the time to focus on my health and to work on healing. Its been almost four years since I finished school, so it feels like a good time to dip my toes back into the school scene. I decided to enroll in IIN or the Institute for Integrative Nutrition…
Finding affordable, organic skin care and makeup products is a rare thing. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a rare gem in regards to price and quality. Clay face masks are one of my favorites because you can really see where the oil and gunk are being pulled out. The Deep Sea Masque from Lauren Brooke comes as a powder to be mixed with any liquids of your choosing and is created with so many nourishing ingredients, it’s impossible to not be intrigued by it…
