November Ipsy Bag 2015! <3

Hi beautiful people! Back from vacation, and it was more than wonderful. Spent a lot of my time relaxing in the deluxe room, and also grabbed some drinks with Bae at the casino. They also had a big beautiful pool and a full service spa/nail salon โค But anywhooo, i’m back to blogging and i came home to an Ipsy Bag! So clearly i had to post about it, let’s get right into it..

This month’s theme was Beauty Blast: “Your November Glam Bag is a universe of brilliant beauties. Twinkle, twinkle, darling. It’s time to light up the sky.”

The girls on this card are absolutely beautiful, both sporting super dramatic lip colors, metallic eyes, long lashes and winged liner. Once again, this card had me really excited to see what was inside. Now, the bag is so so so cute. I love science, space and nebula’s of all sorts, so this hit home with me before i even broke into it. ๐Ÿ™‚

The first item i picked up was this Jesse’s Girl Eye Shadow Primer. This was cool at first sight but when i swatched it, it felt way too liquidy for my liking. So unfortunately i wont be using this and will pass it on to a friend. Here is a swatch for you all to see..

It is almost my exact skin tone, but like i said before i prefer thicker eyeshadow primers. I pretty much ONLY use Mally’s Base Shadow. I definitely recommendย trying that one out if you are in search of a good one.

The next item i was SO excited about was this bright green lipstick. Fran Wilson MOODMatcher, is not a green lipstick but a clear one that adjusts to your body and creates a color by itself. I was dissapointed, i actuallyย wanted a green lipstick and i thought it really went with the outer space theme haha. So i’m not too happy about this one, it’s a neutral pink color which i have tons of. Here is a swatch for you all.

This product is pretty nice and hydrating on the lips, it feels great and smooth so i probably will use this just as a moisturizer and for a little hint of color for a simpler look for work or going out doing errands etc.

The next item was a simple sleek eyeshadow brush. I will definitely be using this, i can never have enough brushes! Especially shadow brushes.

Now we have be a bombshell eye liner in “wild child.” Which is just black haha. It is okay, the swatch wasn’t very opaque or bold but i might use this for my waterline. Here’s a swatch..

The last item i received was this SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara. Always excited to try new mascaras, especially from good brands like SMASHBOX. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is how my eye looks without any mascara:

So i really like this stuff! I think anyone else who got this in their Ipsy Bag was probably stoked about this too! I may purchase the full size version. โค

Thanks for reading dolls, please leave comments and your thoughts for me to read and reply to! ๐Ÿ˜€ I missed you guys!

Ipsy October Glam Bag! 2015

Hello my loves! So sorry i haven’t been posting lately, but things will be picking back up here i have quite a few posts to make in the near future about lots of fun makeup topics! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’„ And one big beautiful HAUL coming soon!!! Today, i will be sharing what i recieved in this months october ipsy bag. If you do not know what ipsy is, i encourage to to go ahead and check out their website it explains it all for you there. Baisically it is a 10$ monthly beauty subscription that is shipped to you with 4-5 deluxe samples, a makeup bag and sometimes one full size product (eyelash curlers, nail colors, makeup brushes etc..) Last months ipsy bag really didn’t make me too exited, i got a lot of stuff i wouldn’t use. This month, i got a lot of stuff i probably wont use and tried to do everything in my power to not recieve in my ipsy bags (hand lotions, hair products, etc.)

This months theme was “Alter Ego.” It made me so excited when i pulled this card out of the bag and the gorgeous girl had bright beautiful extravagant makeup on and neon pink hair! “This October, transform into whoever you want to be. A little imagination and your glam bag is all you need. Infinite possibilities, infinite ways to express yourself” was printed on the back. I was so sure i was going to get some bright awesome colors and products, but i was wrong. I really don’t see how this card related to my bag at all unfortunately, but it was a nice picture to look at.

This is itCosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara in a sample/travel size. I like this product and i’m excited to try it since i haven’t yet, so this one made me happy. ItCosmetics is a great brand i have tons of their brushes and i’ve used some of their other products too, anyone who got this was probably happy as well. ๐Ÿ‘

Here i have a Peter Lamas Pumpkin Exfoliating Facial Scrub travel size, it smells like a spicy fall time sweet dessert but a little over the top smelling at that. The exfoliating property of this seems like it would work very well it has thick exfoliating beads in it. Maybe i will use it on my legs or something i don’t think i would want my face smelling like this as i get migraines very easily.

Then there is the Eva Nyc Therapy Session hair mask travel size, i might try this or maybe pass it on to my mother. She also has an ipsy bag subscription so we will call each other and trade items next time we see each other haha. ๐Ÿ˜„ It smells very strong and perfume like. But the smell isn’t bad. You may like it a lot ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here we have a pair of cheaply made tweezers by Emite Makeup. I buy really good quality tweezers that are costly but worth it to me, because i do my own eyebrows and it literally makes the job a hell of a lot easier when you have a pair of precisely made, flat sharp tweezers at your service. These have no use for me. ๐Ÿ‘Ž

And then we have an awesome The Balm Liquid Lipstick in “Committed.” Very small sample size. It is a nice everyday neutral color, in a matte formula. Once again, nothing to do with this months theme.. It feels very tacky even after 5 or so minutes, but just hold off on smooching or eating etc. for a bout 10-15 minutes then it will fully set and there will be no smudging at all. I know it seems long, DNA cosmetics lip colors set immediately and stay put all day unlike The Balms formula, and it is much more affordable. Definitely recommend checking them out if you haven’t, their lip colors are TO DIE FOR. But this one smells exactly like thin mint cookies, other beauty bloggers were definitely right about that! Haha, don’t know if i would want such a strong smell on my lips all day but we shall see. ๐Ÿ™Œ

Well that’s everything in this months bag, please do enter my giveaway international & U.S. welcome! I will be announcing the winner Oct. 25th! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ Keep tuned in for more reviews, makeup looks, a birthday haul, and much more! Comment and leave your thoughts honeybees ๐Ÿ˜˜

September Ipsy bag!

Hi lovely girls! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just wanted to quickly share my thoughtsย and feelings on what i received in this months glambag. So let’s getย started!

image

So, here are my five items.

image

Queen of the Fill Eyebrow Gel, in the absolute wrong color for me. It’s quite alright though, because this is my mother’s spot on color and i’ll be passing it off to her. I did try it on my brows regardless of the color scenario and i have to say i like the way it applies, and i’m sad it’s the wrong color. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

image

Here i have some Argan Oil for my hair & some ย ultra repair hand/body cream. I am not to happy about receiving either of these products, since i am simply already an avid argan oil user and i have so much that it will last me forever. I really wanted this subscription originally for all the makeup samples. I suppose this is good for traveling purposes though! ๐Ÿ™‚ The cream i am not pleased with because i really really really don’t want any hand/body lotion deluxe sized samples in my glambags. I made sure not to choose that i was ‘interested’ in lotions either when taking the quiz. I’ve got plenty of lotions that i love in full size and these guys just never seem to impress, and this one just smelt really awful. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Bad. Gonna have to give these both a thumbs down!

image

Well, i was also sent a small NYX palette in some very neutral colors. It came with a light shimmer tan, a dark shimmer brown, and a matte black shadow. I think the colors go with the theme, but i have tons of variations of these shades. So this one is a dud for me unfortunately too. The TrรฉStique lip crayon was my favorite of this bunch. It’s nice and creamy, applies super smooth. Mine is in a pretty natural pinky-mauve color. I can see myself using it often ๐Ÿ™‚ Overall, i’ll be patiently awaiting next months bag with higher hopes of better “tailored-to-me” products โค

What did you get!? Thanks so much for reading honeybees! Leave thoughts & comments for me! ๐Ÿ™‚
