Ipsy “Prep School” August 2015

Ipsy “Prep School” August 2015

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service where you receive about 5 deluxe or full-size beauty samples. It is an amazing way to try out new beauty products without spending a fortune. It is just $10 a month. I have been subscribed to Ipsy for almost a year and a half now and I love it! I have no desire to cancel anytime soon! I definitely recommend this to any beauty lover! Beginner or pro.

La Fresh Group “Good Night.” Night Cream. This is light weight but very moisturizing! It’s comfortable to wear, not sticky at all. It actually feels really silky and healthy on the skin. The one thing I don’t like about it is the scent. I think it is supposed to be unscented, but to me, it smells like cucumbers that have been left out on a really hot, muggy day and are starting to go bad. Yum! Right? The smell does dissipate quickly.

 

I could not link this product in. The Skone website does not seem to be working properly. This is a liner for both the lips and the eyes. That is a cool idea but it also makes me a little uncomfortable crossing germs back and forth like that. I’m sure sharpening it between uses would help but I’m still a little unsure about it. This color (Wine) is really pretty on the lips! The formula is very nice as well! I am curious about how this berry color would look with my brown eyes.

 

Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng and Biotin Volumizing Blow Dry Spray. I haven’t given this a proper go yet. I’m not a fan of putting extra things other than leave in conditioner in my hair or applying heat to it. It does smell really nice: citrusy and zesty. The ginseng is really intriguing to me!

noyah Natural Lipstick in “Desert Rose” is the perfect “your lips but better” pink-nude for my fair skin tone! I have been looking for a shade like this for a long time! It is creamy and not drying to the lips at all. The packaging says it is a semi-matte finish, but it seems to me that it is more of a satin finish.

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in “Elegantly Wasted”. I love this color! I don’t think I have anything quite like it in my collection. I do have a few light purples like it but this has a unique dusty, gray tint to it. It is a two, maybe three coater and it drys fairly quickly.

I am really excited about what I received this month! How different is your bag from mine? What is your favorite thing that you got?  I think my favorite is the nail polish.

Ipsy Glam Bag July 2015 Unboxing

Ipsy Glam Bag July 2015 Unboxing

Ipsy is a monthly, beauty subscription service. It is $10 a month. You get 4 or 5 full size or deluxe samples in a cute makeup bag. It is a great way to learn about and try products from both the drugstore and higher end stores for a really reasonable price.

I have been loving eyeshadow sticks like this. They are so quick and easy to use! NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Color in the color “Gilt” is great! It is so creamy, easy to apply and easy to blend. The color is a pretty, light gold. They can be found in many colors and they come  with a sharpener that is just the right size!

 

Jor’el Parker Eau De Parfum Classico Perfume Rollerball is a very nice summer scent. I would like it as a night-time fragrance. It has a floral smell… something like lilacs I think, with a sexy twist to it.

CITY COLOR HD Powder is not my favorite translucent powder. I found that it didn’t blend in well. It was really difficult to pick up with a brush. I either got too much or not enough on my brush. The packaging isn’t the best. The sifter if hard to get out and the powder escapes the threads of the cap no matter how tight you twist it. I prefer the e.l.f. HD Powder instead.

pūr~lisse our-bright ultra skin brightening serum is very lightweight and hydrating. A little bit goes a very long way! It is nice to use on a hot, sweaty day.

 

Crown Brush Professional Tweezers are a lot like my favorite tweezers by Revlon (Mini set… I think this is it… mine are a different color)! They have a nice sharp edge that grabs every hair. These from crown are big. They would be great for applying false lashes!

 

I am pretty happy with this months glam bag and am excited for next months! What did you get in your glam bag? What was your favorite thing?  Mine was the Nudestix eyeshadow stick. Tell me yours below in the comments!

Walmart Beauty Box Summer 2015 Unboxing

Walmart Beauty Box Summer 2015 Unboxing

The Walmart Beauty Box is a $5 beauty subscription service. They advertise it as being free but you do have to pay a five dollar shipping fee. It ships seasonally (4X a year) instead of every month. In my opinion, that is a great deal to discover and try out new, affordable beauty products! I am really impressed with the amount of items I received in this box. It seems to be almost twice as much as what normally comes.

Ken Paves You Are Beautiful Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner is more natural. It is made with essential oils and is sulfate and paraben free. I always love trying more natural products and I have recently jumped on the essential oil bandwagon so I was really excited to try this. I am sad to say that I didn’t love it. I hate foil samples, to begin with. You only get one or two uses out of them and that is never enough to know if you like something. But I didn’t care for the scent. I also slept with an oil mask in my hair the night before and it was not washed out completely with these. My hair still felt pretty gross and oily after getting out of the shower.

Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Complete Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo: I have used shampoo from this brand before and have liked it. As predicted, I enjoyed this as well. And It is quite inexpensive! 

John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray: I don’t really care for the feeling of any kind of product that provides and type of hold in my hair. It just feels really sticky and dirty and gross to me, so I am avoiding this one… But it does smell really nice! … Like coconuts and the beach!

Jargons Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer, Medium to Tan : I have used this before (not medium to tan. I am fair so I bought the light to medium) and liked it well enough. If you are not careful it can turn your skin pretty orange. One section of the 3-day foil packets was only enough for my legs and half an arm (I am a small human: 5’1 and 110 Ibs).

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser. I’m not a fan of this stuff. It is really perfumey and I have started to notice that heavily perfumed things bother my skin a bit. This claims to not over-dry the skin… My skin felt over-dried after using it. It doesn’t really seem to do anything else that it claims to either.

NIVEA Soft Moisturizing Creme It smells like a lotion. It looks like a lotion. It feels like a lotion. So it must be…    It works well and is light weight. It might be a little too fragrant for some. The scent is a mix between baby wipes and floral perfume. I don’t feel like this product is life changing but it’s nice.

Aveeno Active Naturals Protect + Hydrate Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 30 This is light weight and absorbs quickly. It has a bit more fragrance than a regular sunscreen. It smells floral mixed with a bit of good, old fashion sunscreen scent. 

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara Regular, Black If you are looking for big, long, full lashes this is defiantly not for you. But if you are looking for soft extra natural lashes this one could work for you. I could hardly see a difference in my lashes after I applied this.

One Direction You & I Eau de Parfum It smells exactly how it is described… Fruity, floral and sweet. Lovely for the summer time.

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick I received the color “HD Gladiolus”. It is a really pretty bright red. It can be applied to be fully opaque or dab it on for a sheer wash of color. It is also very creamy and moisturizing and smells like candy!

 

Even though I didn’t love a lot of the things that came this time around I am really happy I was able to try the products and for only $5! I think it’s a pretty great deal!

What did you get in your Beauty Box this quarter? Have you ever used any products that I received? How did you like them? Please Share in the comments!

June 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag Unboxing/Review

June 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag Unboxing/Review

Ipsy is a $10 a month beauty subscription service. You get 4 to 6 deluxe sample or full-size beauty products to try out each month. Ipsy works with a wide range of companies from both the drugstore and high-end lines. I have been receiving glam bags for a little over a year now. I have been enjoying them a lot and would highly recommend them!

The Smash Box Photo Finish Foundation Primer is really nice! I really like how it feels! It is not too slippery like some primers can be and it helps makeup last for a long time.

 

J. Cat Beauty Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain in Blow Your Mind is a pretty, bright pink shade. It is very creamy and does leave a slight stain if you wipe it off with a tissue. I don’t really care for the way it wore off from eating. It smells kind of nice, though; a light minty scent.

 

tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Kona Coffee is a dark brown eyeshadow that can be smudged out into a nice medium brown. I really enjoyed running this along my lid close to the lash line, smudging it up onto the rest of my lid and then putting a bright, shimmery coppery-gold shadow on top.

BioRepublic SkinCare Sheet Masks These are really cool! I am so excited to try these! I hate that there are only one of each kind! They look so interesting. Have you every used any masks by this company? How did you like them?

N.Y.C. New York Color High Definition Liquid Liner  I have heard that this stuff is amazing. Sadly I am unable to test it out for a while. Somehow this one was skipped over being filled in the factory. There is not one drop of a hint of product in the tube. Ipsy care has been amazing about it and has put a replacement in the mail for me!

 

This Isn’t my favorite bag but I am not disappointed with it either. What did you like about your glam bag this month?

Want to get one next month? Sign up!

Ipsy May 2015 | Unboxing/Review

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service. You receive 4 to 6 deluxe sample or full-size beauty products as well as a cute makeup bag. I love getting these! It’s like a little Christmas to look forward to in the middle of each month. I defiantly recommend this service! You get a good mix of high end and drugstore products and for $10 a month. How can you go wrong with that?

 

Women’s Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20)
Women’s Urban Decay ‘Revolution’ High-Color Lipgloss ($22)
I wasn’t blown away by these. The lip liner works well, but it’s not anything special. I’m not a big lip gloss user. I think these are a little overpriced and I’m sure it wouldn’t be difficult to find dupes for a lot less money. I would love to know if you have different feelings about these! Do you love them or hate them? I feel neutral about them.

Chella Eyebrow Pencil ($18)
This is great! The product is so thin like the Anastasia Brow Wiz ($18 – $21)
or the NYX Micro Brow Pencil ($10 – $15), but it does not have the little spoolie on the end. The pencil is really precise and easy to blend, but it doesn’t rub off while blending or throughout the day. I received the shade Taupe and it is a great shade for my dark blonde brows. I defiantly recommend this brow pencil!

Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches with Cornflower ($21 for 7 pairs)

These sound really interesting. Since I only received one pair I have decided to save them for when I really need them. The website claims that they are supposed to sooth, soften refresh, moisturize and brighten the eye area and reduces puffiness and smooth away lines. Have you tried these? Do you like them?

Luxie Beauty Tapered Blending Eye Brush 205

I love this brush! It is so soft and fluffy. It is the perfect size for the crease for adding a transition shade or blending a harsh line. I Think this size and shape push is a must have and I defiantly recommend this one!

Bare Republic Naturals SPF 30 Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion ($15)

This comes as a regular moisturizer and a tinted moisturizer. It’s weird, though! It has a strange artificial fruit smell and the texture is even more strange. It feels watery at first and then it starts to feel like a weird mix between a slippery silicon primer and a very fine, loose powder. I’m not sure what to make of it. How do you like it?
Overall I am pretty happy with what I got this month! What were your favorites from your bag?

Lip Balm: Oats & Honey   This is amazing! Wear it for five minutes and your lips feel like silk for the rest of the day! I don’t want to use it now because I don’t want to run out!

theBalm NUDE ‘dude Eyeshadow Palette  I have never tried any products from The Balm before but I have heard great things about them. Those great things that I heard were true. This eyeshadow has great pigmentation and is very buttery and blendable.

 

Aromachology Sophisticated & Sensual Floral Eau de Parfum  I didn’t care for this at first but I kept sniffing the bottle trying to figure out what it smelled like and It started to grow on me. I kind of like it a lot now. It smells like a fresh, springtime, garden scented, bubble bath.

 

Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner  I am not a big eyeliner user but this is a nice eyeliner. It is very creamy, blendable and long lasting. The color that I received is Starlight. It is black with micro glitter flecks in it. This eyeliner comes in a lot of other colors, though.

 

JulieG Nail Color This is an amazing formula! Just one to two coats. It is a gorgeous fuchsia pink.
I am very happy with what I got in my bag this month! I love the actual bag its self too. So Cute! Please share in the comments what you loved from your glam bag this month!

Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2015 | Unboxing/Review

Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2015 | Unboxing/Review

The Walmart Beauty Box is a seasonal (4 times a year) subscription box of drugstore brand samples. In each box, you get 3 or 4 deluxe sample size products, a couple foil samples and a handful of coupons. The subscription is “free” but you do pay $5.00 for shipping. If this is something you would like to sign up for here is where you can do it!

Maybelline New York Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation  My skin is too dry to test this out right now but I have been really curious about this and I am excited to test it out!

NIVEA Nourishing In-Shower Body Lotion  I have been really interested in trying this. When I used this there wasn’t enough product in the packet to cover my entire body ( I am small, 5’1 and 110 pounds) This claims to be long lasting and not sticky. Neither of those things was true. My skin felt sticky for several hours after I used it and I didn’t notice any difference in how soft or moisturized my skin felt.

Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum Natural Spray, 0.5 fl oz (affiliate) This is alright. It has a warm, spicy, vanilla scent. Very Lady Gaga like!

 

Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair & Moisture Shampoo  Eh. This isn’t bad but I don’t love it. The shampoo doesn’t lather and bubble as much as I think shampoo should. The conditioner doesn’t really feel as creamy and moisturizing as I would like. It also has a weird scent to it: a mix of wet paint and Hollister.

Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Body Wash  I have always liked Dove body wash. This did not disappoint. It is nice and creamy and smells good too!

 

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes  I am really excited to try these! I have recently started using Simple’s Micellar Water and am loving it! So I have high expectations for this guy.
Overall I am not overly excited about this box but I am not disappointed either. For $5.00 4 times a year and the chance to discover something new, I think it is well worth it! If you got a box this spring leave a comment telling me what you liked the most in it!

Ipsy Unboxing/Review March 2015

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service. You get 4 or 5 deluxe sample to full-size products to try and play within a cute makeup bag and it only costs $10 a month.

Pūr~lisse Beauty “Pūr~delicate Gentle Soymilk Cleanser & Makeup Remover” This Stuff is interesting. It is the texture of a thick liquid soap but it does not lather. It is more like a cream but it is not oily and it is not overly drying like a lot of cleansers can be. It removed all of my makeup except for my waterproof mascara. Purlisse Pur-Delicate Cleansing Cream $36 for full size

Boo-boo Coverup Concealer
This is amazing! I have had such a hard time finding a really full coverage concealer and this is it! You only need the tiniest bit. It is great for covering blemishes. One thing I don’t like is that it clings to dry spots and fine hairs, but that is really hard to avoid anyway.
Baby Boo-Boo Cover-Up – Medium Shade $10

Vintage by Jessica Leibeskind Illuminating face powder
This is really pretty, natural and subtle for a highlight anywhere on the face. You can find it at Ipsy’s site here.

 

Dr. Drandt Pored No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion. This is meant for oily skin. My skin is on the dry side right now and this was quite nice. It is mattifying but I did not notice any pore minimizing. I think this would be a great moisturizer for warmer, sweatier months!
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion

 

NYX Butter Lipstick in “Hunk”. The color payoff on my lips is a little bit pinker than the packaging but I still really like it. These are super comfortable and moisturizing. NYX Butter Lipstick – BLS11 Licorice I am quite happy with my glam bag this month. Tell me in the comments what your favorite products are from your glam bag!

This one costs $25.

Walmart Beauty Box | Winter 2014

The Walmart Beauty Box is seasonal subscription box. You get 5 or so deluxe or full-size samples 4 times a year. The box its self is free but you do have to pay $5 for shipping. I think that is a pretty fantastic deal, though! If you aren’t already, you can sign up or learn more about it here.

Olay Fresh Effects “Everything Off” Makeup Wipes
I have tried a few things from this line and I liked most of them so I am excited to try this. This is not a full sized product. This only has 7 wipes in the pack; perfect for travel of the car or purse.The full size has 25 wipes and costs $4. Purchase

Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs “Maple Kiss”
This is a brownish nude color, really moisturizing and it has pretty good pigmentation. I don’t really care for the taste and smell. It’s kind of like a chemically floral scent. This is full sized and costs $5.50. So that right there paid for the box! Purchase

 

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream

I have never heard of anything like this and I am a little nervous to try it. The information on the back of the bottle says it is supposed to be a moisturizer with extra fancy technology that firms and perfects all skin types. It smells nice, though; sort of sweet and like a perfume. This sample size is 1 oz and the full size is 7.5 oz. It costs $12. Purchase

L’oreal Oleo Therapy Oil Infused Shampoo and Conditioner.
I have used this once and so far I really like it. The shampoo was really thick and the conditioner was really thin. That made me a little nervous at first but my hair felt really nice after my shower. It was really soft and felt healthy. My natural waves stuck around for a lot longer as well. I am pretty sure I will be buying the full-size bottles soon! The sample sizes are 2 oz and the full-size bottles are 8.5 oz. Each is $6.

Shampoo

Conditioner

There were also a couple foil samples with coupons attached:
Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder and Nivea Cocoa Butter Body Lotion.

I really liked this box and I am excited for the next one! If you would like to sign up click here.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2015

Ipsy is a $10 a month beauty subscription service. You get 4 to 5 deluxe samples every month in a cute little makeup bag. Here is a link to where you can sign up and/or learn more about it.

This month’s bag is so cute! It is bright blue on one side, a creamy white on the other and a hot neon peach in the inside.

Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream. From what I can find the full-size set is $22. This eye cream feels really light but moisturizing. It has kind of a weird earthy smell to it but it dissipates fast.

(Malin + Goetz) Mojito Lip Balm. The full size at .35 OZ is $12. It is thick but if feels really moisturizing and it seems to be fragrance-free.

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow. The color is Treasure. These come in a pallet of three for $14. This is a soft, bendable, shimmery bronze color. Very pretty!

This hot pink brush is the Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush. It’s $10. The bristles are so soft and fluffy and the handle is comfortable to hold, not to mention it is soo cute!

BelláPierre Shimmer Powder in the color Exite. This appears to be full sized and it sells for $15. It is a beautiful, bendable highlight that could be gorgeous on your face or as an eyeshadow.

The total value of this bag, full size is $73.
The bag cost $10 and if I went out and bought each of these products it would cost me $73. I’d say this month’s bag has pretty good value!

Don’t forget to use this link to sign up for this great subscription service!

Ipsy Bag November 2014

Ipsy is a ten dollar, monthly beauty subscription service. I love it! I would recommend it to anyone who loves trying a wide range of beauty products but hates the high prices. If you are interested you can sign up here.
This month the theme was “Girl Meets Glitter”. This is the happiest I have been with my bag.
