September Ipsy bag!

Hi lovely girls! 🙂 Just wanted to quickly share my thoughts and feelings on what i received in this months glambag. So let’s get started!

So, here are my five items.

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. 😦

Here i have some Argan Oil for my hair & some  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! 🙂 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. 😦 Bad. Gonna have to give these both a thumbs down!

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 TréStique 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 🙂 Overall, i’ll be patiently awaiting next months bag with higher hopes of better “tailored-to-me” products ❤

What did you get!? Thanks so much for reading honeybees! Leave thoughts & comments for me! 🙂

Poison Purple & Ocean Blue Lips!

So i’ve been looking through a lot of beautiful, kind of crazy lip color combos and looks and i’ve been very inspired by luvbridget’s blog lately. She’s always posting pictures of gorgeous lips, so thank you for motivating me to do some looks of my own honey! ❤ Check out her blog, click on here name above 🙂

I primed my lips before applying the colors in these looks.

This is my poison purple look, MAC “Gunner” & MAC “Violetta” have been used here with a clear lipgloss and bright indigo/purple loose pigment.

Bright ocean lips! This was created with the NYX Macaroon Lip Stick in “Pistachio“. And i used a loose electric blue sparkle pigment to line my lips and fade the color out! Then i just dabbed a little bit of white/translucent powder in the center of my lips since i wanted this one to be more of a matte look.

I really loved doing something crazy like this, if any of you are inspired to do a fun lip-look send me a link to your post i would love to see what YOU created! Thanks for reading!
