Ipsy glambaG


Here we go again, Ipsy glam bag time! Things got away from me last month and I chose not to post my August unbagging. The products I received were not that amazing, so fingers crossed that things are better this time!

img_9477

HITS:

TRÈSTIQUE Mini Lip Glaze in Mumbai Magenta

This sheer berry shade goes on to the lips with a subtle sheen. Coming in cute compact packaging doesn’t hurt either. This lasted well on my lips throughout the day and was ultra comfortable.

img_9483

ELIZABETH MOTT Face Primer

Face primers are my bread and butter, I am constantly testing out new ones. This TINY (ugh) sample has a thick consistency that does a good job of smoothing out the skin and filling in pores. Since a little goes a long way and my foundation applied nicely over top, I am happy to have received this product, even though its microscopic.

img_9491

BOTANIC FARM Natural Energy Sheet Mask in Avocado

My two favorite things – sheet masks and avocados! Total score. I often get sheet masks in beauty subscriptions and LOVE it. Face masks are part of my daily routine so the more the merrier! Looking forward to trying these bad boys out, while eating some avocado toast.

img_9478

DOUCCE Freematic Bronzer in Sunbeam

This free-standing magnetic pan will fit nicely into my Z-palette. The light tan shade gives a realistic contour to my skin. The powder is well formulated so it applies smoothly and doesn’t emphasize any texture. I’ll take that any day!

img_9479

LUXIE BEAUTY Wonder Woman Detail Tapered Blender 140

You can never have too many brushes. Especially if they happen to be Luxie brushes, which is my favorite brand. The dense tapered shape is too large to be used for my eyes. Concealer? Highlighter? It could be used for several things, I am just still trying to figure out how this brush will work best for me. Happy to have it in my collection either way!

Overall I am pleased with this month’s bag and don’t think any of the products are a “miss.” What items did you get? I would love to know down below!

Favorite INEXPENSIVE lipsticks

img_9042


Lipstick brings your whole look together, that is just a fact. Once you find your go-to shade it is hard to deviate away from it. That is exactly what happened with these four lipsticks for me. On any given day I am wearing one of these products or have them ready to go in my purse. Everything about them is great but the ridiculously low price tags just seal the deal!

Wet n’ Wild  MegaLast Lip Color in “Bare It All”

This is the lipstick that started my love affair with lipstick! The most inexpensive of the group, coming in around two dollars is my favorite. A neutral brown shade on me, but would appear more nude on less naturally pigmented lips. You can wear this with EVERYTHING, it goes with all makeup looks or no makeup at all. This is the most wearable, everyday shade I have found. The matte formula has a slight slip to it for the first couple hours then eventually dries down. You most likely only have to apply once throughout your day. From the state my current bullet is in, you can tell it gets a lot of love. Comfortable, beautiful and no fuss whatsoever!

img_9017img_9018

Wet n Wild  MegaLast Lip Color in “In the  Flesh”

I am just a fan of the whole MegaLast matte lipstick line. They have some incredible colors. This shade is a bit darker and more red toned than the previous one. Same formula and same “rock it everyday” ability. I wear this lipstick when I have a more low-key eye look going on. Obsessed! I interchange this shade and Bare It All constantly.  When I NEED my makeup to look perfect all day, this is what I reach for. These lipsticks also last forever, like I bought them four years ago and wear them constantly, forever. Now that they are FINALLY running low, I need to go pick up another one, or three.

img_9015img_9016

E.L.F Matte Lip Color in “Tea Rose”

Another long time favorite. This is the one for all the cool toned lovers out there. The thin bullet allows for more control and the hidden in the bottom sharpener lets you keep its shape. Allowing you to line and fill in your pout super fast! This mauve/lavender shade is fun but still wearable. This is a matte formula as well, sensing a trend? Staying put is my number one priority in a lipstick, I don’t want to have to worry about it moving or getting on my teeth throughout the day. You will may to reapply after eating, but it is worth it. A non drying matte in a flattering for all skin tones shade. Coming in at around three dollars, run don’t walk to go pick this lipstick up.

img_9021img_9022

COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in “Spellbound”

This is the fun, bold and bright color of the group. After discovering this lipstick I could not get enough. I was planning outfits and makeup looks to match this product, not the other way around. The intense magenta shade is so flattering. The blue undertones make your teeth appear whiter and the powerful pigment makes your lips look fuller. This lipstick is once again a matte formula. The last thing you want to worry about when rockin’ a fun lip is if it is going to budge. This lipstick stays put from your morning to coffee to your late night martini. Whenever I want to pump up any look this is my go-to product. Don’t be scared, you are going to love it, I promise!

img_9019img_9020

With these four products being easy to find at your nearest drugstore or online, there is no reason not to try them all. A go-to shade for any occasion! Paint your pout and pinch your pennies with these lip color choices. What is your must have lip product?!

IPSY July 2018

Ipsy glambaG


My heart skips a beat whenever that pretty pink package turns up in my mailbox. Ipsy was my first subscription service and it is still going strong. For $10 a month you get to try five beauty samples and sometimes receive full size items! Last month was pretty good so we shall see if July’s bag can keep up!

Hits:

SMASHBOX COSMETICS Studio Skin Concealer Light

This is an AMAZING product to receive. Full size, high-end brand and the perfect shade for me. This is one of the best items I have ever gotten in a glam bag. Trying new concealers is one of my favorite things to do! This lightweight formula doesn’t cake up but still offers a good amount of coverage. This month has been a crazy one so my dark undereye circles need a lot of help. I’ve been wearing it for about a week now and am obsessed. TOTAL HIT!

img_7952-1

MELLOW COSMETICS Creamy Matte Lipstick in Candy Floss

Just look at that color! Bright, fun and super summer-y. I mentioned in a previous post how much I have been drawn to wearing bold lip colors lately. This certainly fits the bill. Another full size product with adorable packaging and pigmentation to boot. The formula is non drying and stays put. It can get patchy after a few hours of wear, but if you just wipe it off and reapply you will be fine. Another total hit, I love practically everything about this lipstick.

img_7959-1

CALLYSSEE Caffeine Rush Nourishing Facial Sheet Mask

More sheet masks, need I say more? Always stoked to get sheet masks because of how often I use them! We get two this time around, amazing once again! This formula is chock full of coffee extract which is going to wake up your skin just like a cup wakes up your mind in the morning. These are perfect for those times your skin is looking a bit dull. Cannot wait to try these out!

img_8323-1

ELLA EDEN Pressed Eyeshadow in Harmony

This rosy peach eyeshadow screams summertime. This full size (OMG, who is keeping count?!) product is extremely soft to the touch and blends on to the eye like a dream. It offers a build-able formula if more color payoff is needed. The shimmery shade looks so flattering all over the lid. This would also be beautiful as a blush topper on the cheeks. The pigmentation is there so you just have to decide where you want to put it!

img_8322-1

WANDER BEAUTY Glowtion in Celestial

This lotion is packed with shimmer and a hint of champagne color. This would look beautiful mixed in with foundation or applied prior to makeup for an understated glow. Since it is subtle using it as a liquid highlight on top of foundation might not be the best idea. The Wander beauty brand has been swirling around lately and I am excited to be able to try something from them.

img_7956-1

Overall, this might be the best Ipsy bag I have ever received. Four full-size products (five if you count both sheet masks)!!! Seriously, how do they do it?! I have been wearing the eyeshadow and concealer for several days now and adore them both! What items did you get this month? Are you excited as I am? Let me know down below!

Current Obsession: Bright Lips


Summer is the ideal time to have some serious fun with your makeup. Step out of your comfort zone and pop on something that makes you stand out.

My favorite makeup trend for the warmer months is a bright lip color. This look gives me so much confidence. Piling on tons of products when it is sweltering outside is no fun. A bold lip is all you need to bring your face to life. All the glam without the worry of anything melting off. Keeping the rest of your makeup muted will make your lips pop even more.

img_6395

You can wear a bright lip color no matter your outfit, but they will stand out more against neutral styles. Want to wear all black but not look like a wallflower? Pull out your most vivid lipstick shade.

This tricks comes in handy when you aren’t in love with your outfit but need to quickly get out the door. Lipstick never fails to pull your whole look together.

img_6726

When wearing such strong colors, I opt for a matte formula. This ensures it stays in place during busy days and while snapping selfies. Lipstick on one’s teeth is never a cute look.

Don’t feel that you need to break the bank in order to rock a statement lip. Drugstores and online outlets have more than enough quality options. If you aren’t going to wear it every single day, it doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg.

img_7452

My favorite shades as of late have been purples, oranges and magentas. If these out there colors aren’t your cup of tea, everybody looks amazing in a red lip!

Boxycharm June 2018

Boxycharm


Getting back into the swing of writing my beauty box reviews, whew! My Boxycharm is here and excited is an under statement! Let’s see the products they provided for the start of summer.

Hits:

Alamar Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette 

Eyeshadow palettes have not excited me lately. It has been a while since I wore eyeshadow every day but I’m trying to start that process again. This palette makes me stoked to do my makeup in the morning. These warm toned shadows pack a pigmented punch but blend like a dream. I can get a killer look in mere minutes. I have loved all the combinations I’ve come up with thus far but cannot wait to play around some more. This palette is something you should for sure pick up if these colors speak to you. I am OBSESSED.

img_7409

 Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in “Verona”

Boxycharm includes a matte liquid lipstick in almost every box. Can we not think of something more creative? I enjoy and wear them often, I just wish there was more variety in the color selection. It’s almost always a nude-y brown shade. Something brighter would be fun for summer, don’t you think? This brown matte lipstick is nice, it gets dry after a while but Ofra still has one of the best formulas in the game. Not a total miss, I’ll just throw this in with the ten other products I have just like it.

img_7413

Battington Monroe Silk Lashes

Lashes, how fun! I have not worn traditional strip lashes in years. I had lash extensions then switched to magnetic lashes ( which I am OBSESSED with!). These are silk lashes, meaning you can get many uses out of them if you take care of them correctly. These are a more natural looking as far as falsies are concerned. I am excited to give these a try sometime soon. The packaging is also as adorable as can be.

img_7417

Luxie 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Set

I have said for years now that Luxie makes some of my favorite brushes of all time. I happen to already own all three of these so I may give them away or use them when my other ones are dirty (that’s how lazy I am). A tapered highlighter, foundation and duo fiber powder brush round out this trio. All soft, all pink, ALL GOOD!

img_7415

Jonteblu Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

This seems like an add-on item. This traditional wood pencil eyeliner is a little rough going on but gets the job done. I got a brown shade which is different from the usual black, thank goodness. This stays in my waterline well and looks just fine.

img_7414

Sol de Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

This lotion is a cult favorite. Yes, this is a very small sample but it is still nice to be able to try out such a highly rated product. This lotion says that it tones and tightens the skin. Does it really? I am still undecided but it’s still a nice product. This stuff Smells INCREDIBLE, like mindblowing-ly good and looks good on the skin. It’s summer, I need all the tools possible to keep my legs looking nice!

img_7416

This was a great box. Very on theme for summer and we got SIX items! The palette is by far my favorite, I can’t stop myself from using it. What did you think of June’s Boxycharm?

Ipsy June 2018

Ipsy glambaG


I am excited because my Ipsy came in the mail and this is my 100th blog post. Holy moly! The saying is true, time flies when you’re having fun. Ipsy was good last month, let’s see if they can nail it this time around as well.

Hits:

MINTPEAR Rounded Soft Blend M64 Brush
Ipsy can ready my mind sometimes it seems. I was just thinking about how a smaller brush to apply my highlight would be ideal. Enter in this soft, dome-shaped brush that is perfect for a controlled application. It sweeps perfectly over my cheekbones without getting the product everywhere. This is a hit for sure!
img_6967
M·A·C Prep + Prime Skin
Primers are a vital step in my everyday routine, I can certainly see the difference in my makeup throughout the day. This primer feels like a lotion and gets the skin prepped and hydrated. My makeup held up all day while wearing this. M.A.C is an awesome brand to receive in a beauty subscription but this sample size is microscopic, ugh!
img_6970
THE SAEM Natural Acai Berry Sheet Mask and Natural-tox Apple Sheet Mask
We all know that sheet masks are my JAM. I do one practically every day. Skin care benefits with ease! Plus we get two as oppose to one. These will have a happy home in my collection. They seem like they will smell amazing as well, huge plus.
img_6968
FINDING FERDINAND Mini Lipstick in Flaming Fuchsia
Lipstick is my favorite part of the makeup routine. It pulls any look together instantly. I appreciate this bright fuchsia color because it is good to get out of my comfort zone. This goes on creamy and slightly glossy in a swatch so I’m excited to get some wear out of it. This shade will be a fun pop of color for summer. While it is tiny, this size will still allow for several uses.
img_6972

Misses:

FEEL Pure Anywhere Balm in Rose

I don’t use a lot of balms. This product can be used anywhere that moisture is needed. I would only use this on my lip because it felt too greasy for anywhere else. The name includes rose, which I took to mean it would smell like roses, but nope! It has a strong (pleasant) mint scent. It is not rose-colored either, so the name is perplexing. This will be used as a lip balm which is just not that exciting and again, this is a TINY sample size.

Overall, not my favorite Ipsy but not the worst! Two of the items were full size which is always great. What products did you get in your bag? Let me know down below!

IPSY May 2018

Ipsy glambaG


Man oh man these subscriptions seem to come faster and faster each month. Ipsy has arrived for May and  since I have not been thrilled with my bags lately I do not have high hopes.

img_5997

HITS:

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Soft Matte Lip Cream in “Cairo”

This product and me have a love/hate relationship. Love that we got a full size NYX product, love that it is the Soft Matte Lip Cream as well. I have several of these and really do enjoy them. HATE that I keep receiving lip colors that are way too light for me.  This shade, an extremely pale nude gives me “concealer lips” which is not a good look. I could perhaps make it work with a darker lip liner underneath, but will I? Probably not.

img_6005

SLMISSGLAM Sparkle Everyday Glam Beauty Sponge

Tools are fun to receive because they typically work for everybody. Sponges fit into this category but I was wary due to the fact that a hard sponge is almost unbearable. However this one is soft and bouncy as can be! This will be perfect for blending in liquid products or baking my face with powder, both of which I do everyday. The shape of this product is a new one for me and should be good for easily reaching the under eye area. One can never have too many sponges, because the more I have the less often I have to clean them. The lazy girl in me is happy to have gotten this.

img_6003

TARTE COSMETICS Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder

Receiving a Tarte product in an Ipsy bag is a big deal. Such a well-known, high-end brand! This powder is right up my alley of what I enjoy getting in subscriptions. A translucent finishing powder, meaning it is the absolute last step of your routine to blur pores and imperfections. This is not to be confused with a setting powder, and should not be applied right after foundation because it will stick and not blend. Use a light hand with this in order to prevent flash back or a white cast on the face. I think it worked well and I am excited to have it in my collection. My skin looks smooth and perfected after application. Plus this is a healthy sample size and will last me a bit, score!

img_5998

TONYMOLY Painting Therapy Pack

First things first, the packaging makes this product a total hit. It looks just like a little paint tube. The cutest! This wash off mask is a small sample but after using it I realize just how little you need, so it will allow for several applications. This product is black due to the charcoal and dark clay it is made up of. These ingredients work to clear out impurities without drying the skin. After wearing it for 15ish minutes I washed it off and my skin did look good. Did I notice a huge difference? No. Is it hard to be critical of skincare on the first try? Yes. I look forward to using this again. I have loved everything I have tried thus far from Tony Moly.

img_5999

ELIZABETH MOTT Shimmer Eyeshadow Single in Goldy or Mermaid Teal

Blue eyeshadow ain’t just for your 80’s themed party anymore. This shimmery teal shade is the perfect pop of color for a fun eye look. I love experimenting with blue shadows, it is probably the “exciting” color I use most often. This shadow can be applied dry or wet for more intensity. It is pigmented straight out the gate though, so worn dry should suffice. It is a single pan so you can easily put it into a magnetic palette, saving room in my collection (yay). Can’t wait to get some use out of this.

img_6004

Overall, I am happy with my bag. FINALLY! Ipsy fell off for a little while, but she’s baaaaack and I am stoked. What products did you get this month? I would love to know!

Ipsy April 2018

Ipsy glambaG


 

 My Ipsy has arrived for the month of April. The bag itself is so dang cute so hopefully the items inside follow suit!

img_4761

HITS:

CIATÉ LONDON Starstruck Double-Ended Stamp Liquid Liner

While black eyeliner may not be the most exciting item, this one has a secret weapon. This dual ended product has a felt tipped liquid liner on one side and a star stamp on the other! Do I see myself rocking black stars on my face often? No, but once or twice could be fun! The conventional side has a thick tip, making it slightly difficult to get a precise line. It would be good for creating a dramatic wing however. This is not a life changing eyeliner but still a fun, FULL size product to receive.

img_4765img_4766

FIRMA BEAUTY 202 Angled Blender

Always happy to gain another brush for my collection. I honestly cannot remember the last time I had to go out and purchase a makeup brush on my own, total perk of subscription services! This eye shadow brush is large and fluffy, making it ideal for blending color into your crease. Another full size item is a total hit.

img_4764

PURLISSE BEAUTY Coconut Oil + Coffee Sugar Body Scrub

During the Spring and Summer, outfits become more and more revealing. Therefore having smooth skin is of crucial importance! This scrub will be perfect for prepping for self tanner to prevent streaking or patchiness. It smells amazing, just like coffee cake goodness. Do I wish it was a bigger size? Of course, but will still use it!

img_4762

TRISSOLA Leave-in Conditioner

Another hit due to circumstance. A SMALL sample of leave in conditioner, which is one of the only hair products I really use, is still nice to receive. I am about to go on several vacations and this will be easy to throw in my luggage. This product doubles as a finishing cream for dry hair as well, which is how I plan to use it most.

img_4763

AURORA 24H Lip Stain in “Soft Pink”

You gotta love a full size makeup item! This lipstain is a bright pink shade, “soft” does not seem fitting, not sure why they chose that name. This product really does stain your lips which makes them a bit dry in the process. Under a gloss though this wore beautifully throughout the day. It gives your lips that “just ate a popsicle look,” a fun wash of color for  your pout. Perfect for a no fuss summer look. The tip is super fine as well, allowing for accuracy.

img_4767img_4768

Overall, not my favorite bag. It was just so-so, nothing mind-blowing but nothing I immediately want to throw in the trash either. Looking forward to seeing what next month has in store! What items did you get? Let me know down below!

Worth The Hype? Magnetic Lashes


If you are anything like me putting on false lashes can be a headache. While lashes add drama and make you look more pulled together, applying them never came easy to me. My dreams have become a reality because MAGNETIC lashes are now a thing and becoming more and more popular by the day.

Below you can see the progression from bare eyes to just mascara and then with accent magnetic lashes applied. Natural looking with the perfect amount of added volume!

img_4163

img_4164

img_4165

Think of magnetic lashes as “false lashes for dummies.” I have spent hours getting ready only to ruin my whole look by applying strip lashes. Glue gets in my eye, I end up howling in anger and having to completely start over. A total mess and fits of rage typically ensue. After getting lash extensions professionally applied every month for over a year, both my wallet and I were exhausted. I needed to explore new options.

I first heard a blogger talk about how much she loved her magnetic lashes, of course she did, they cost $70! That certainly wasn’t going to save me any money. After a friend told me how much she loved hers at a lower price point, I was convinced. Research was done and I found many brands offering less expensive options. If you are going to try something to see if it works for you there is no need to break the bank. I started with a couple of pairs from Amazon.com. They worked great and I have been a believer ever since.

The lashes come with two pieces with tiny magnets on them. One piece is placed on the top of the lash and the other is applied underneath the lash to create a sandwich effect with your natural lashes in the middle. The hardest part is matching up the pieces to align the magnets for the strongest hold. It certainly takes some practice but with fifteen minutes or less with these bad boys, it will become a piece of cake. The best part is that with no glue, if you do mess up you can just pop them off and try again! Your makeup will not get messed up no matter how many tries it takes. They are also re-usable, as long as you keep them clean and shaped you will get many wears!

img_4243

Once they are applied to your liking, they stay on all day! With added drama to your look and a FAST no mess application, they really are my dream lashes. Can you see the magnets if you look up close? Yes, but who cares!? They look natural enough that you can even wear them without eyeliner.

Since this style has been becoming more and more popular, several brands are launching their variations. Ardell, a HUGE name in the false lash world recently brought out multiple styles of magnetic lashes. I have tried the “accent” ones, which are applied to just the outer half of the lash line making them the most wearable for every day, and adore them! They also have several full lash options available. Affordable and awesome choices from the drugstore or your nearest Ulta!

img_4202

 Having small magnets near your eyes may seem scary, but I have noticed no issues thus far wearing them almost every day. I can not picture myself going back to conventional strip lashes anytime soon, I am a changed woman. What do you think about magnetic lashes? Let me know down below and stay lashy my friends!

Boxycharm March 2018

Boxycharm


 

Boxycharm was not the best last month but I have a feeling it’s about to bounce back in a BIG way. This box is my absolute favorite to receive. Five FULL SIZE products for $21 dollars is pretty amazing. Let’s see how they did this time, shall we?

img_4012

HITS:

Pretty Vulgar “Make Them Blush” Powder Blush in “Hush Blush”

This blush is a hit on every level. It is a neutral rose shade that will flatter everybody, feels silky smooth and has just the right amount of pigment. Too much color impact can give you instant “clown face” which nobody wants! This blush lasts a decent amount of time, throughout a whole work day and then some. It blends like a dream on the skin to actually make you look like you’re blushing. My favorite part though might be the packaging. The ornate gold design adds a touch of old school glamour. I’m excited to keep using and displaying this item!

img_4014

Boxycharm X PUR Cosmetics Palette 

This eyeshadow palette is a Boxycharm exclusive! PUR Cosmetics collaborated with the subscription box to bring us twelve pans of shimmery and matte shades. The color story could create some fun unique looks. I am very much looking forward to trying out the bright pink and blue shades. The formula leaves little to be desired though. The shadows are extremely powdery and cause a lot of fall out underneath the eyes. The shimmery shades I’ve tried so far have been chunky and don’t apply well to the eye. I used brushes and my finger and still couldn’t get the desired pigmentation. The PUR palette we received a few months ago is one of my favorites, so what happened here? Did I just receive a dud? It could be user error or could be poorer quality, either way I’m disappointed. The first time I used this it applied so terribly I had wash my face and start over! I still want to use different shades and try to make it work. I’m just bummed because at first glance it is so pretty.

img_4017

The Vintage Company Smokey Eye Brush Set

I never complain about getting brushes in subscription services, let alone getting a set of THREE! This trio is everything you need to get a complete eye shadow look. One to pack color on the lid, one to blend the crease and one that is perfect for smudging out the lower lash line. They are soft synthetic brushes that work just how they should. The cute messages on the handles are also a hit!

img_4022

Butter London Double Decker Mascara 

Since I no longer have eyelash extensions I am finally able to try out new mascaras! Therefore I was very excited to get this product in my box. The tube and wand are HUGE and offer natural bristles. The formula is very wet, yet doesn’t create any clumps of product. My lashes look extremely defined and slightly longer after application. Two coats are necessary but it builds well on itself if you want to go a little crazy with the layers. Even after a full day I can pop this on to amp up my eye look and it still doesn’t get clumpy. I have thoroughly enjoyed this product thus far.

img_4015

South Mane 3 Eye Gel Packs 

Using under eye gel masks is always a fun thing to do. Have I ever noticed dramatic effects from any brand? Perhaps not but that hasn’t deterred me from trying them out! These gel packs say they will de-puff, brighten and hydrate the under eye skin. My allergies have been going crazy and while my eyes wont stop watering, the skin beneath them is dark, puffy and dry as can be. The perfect scenario to try these out! They felt cooling and relaxing to wear but I did have to lay down to prevent them from sliding down my face. My eyes looked refreshed after application, but nothing mind-blowing. It says for best results use three days in a row so maybe after that time period more dramatic results would ensue.

img_4013

Overall, I am pleased with this month. Certainly better than February’s box. I have been using all these items and will continue to do so. The total retail value? $115, holy smokes! What items did you get? Were you pleased with this box? Let me know down below!
