June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great weekend. Today I want to take the time and talk to you about the June.

Description: The June Glam Bag came in a fabric bag with a picture of a lip with red lipstick. Yes, you got it right, red lipstick. How chick is that! It’s a not-so-subtle reminder to *always* speak your mind! The bag is perfect for making a glam statement. Inside are five products: NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé, BioRepublic SkinCare Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask & Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask, the Balm Cosmetics INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe, Skone Cosmetics Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner, and Luna By Luna Cosmetics
Eyeshadow in Jace.

NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé ($6 value): It is very creamy and soft with a nice texture and beautiful color. However, it really does not last long. I will only give it a 3.5 to 4 stars at most.

BioRepublic SkinCare Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask & Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask ($9.98 value): The Green Tea mask is infused with a ton of revitalizing ingredients (like natural green tea extract and Vitamin E) that leave your skin looking and feeling SO fresh and SO clean. One the other hand, the Aloe mask is full of soothing aloe vera juice will immediately hydrate and calm down sun-stressed skin.

theBalm Cosmetics INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe ($21 value):  This talc-free, fade-resistant formula is perfect for hot days and even hotter nights. The shade is beautiful, and it stays very well. I’ve been given a lot of blushes and would definitely like to get more varied items.

Skone Cosmetics Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner ($20 value): A precise, felt tip makes creating cat eyes and graphic looks SUPER easy. I absolutely love the eyeliner with its precise tip and it lasts such a long time.

Luna By Luna Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Jace ($15 value): The site says it’s vegan and cruelty-free and only been tested on party animals. There is not much pigmentation even with eye primer. I am not a fan of this shadow at all.

May Ipsy Glam Bag


bag4

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great Wednesday. Today I want to talk to you about the April Ipsy Glam Bag. As you know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Description: The May Glam Bag came in a clear plastic bag with pictures of favorite summer treats in it. Yes, you got it right, it’s ice cream. The bag is perfect for making a splash at pool parties. Inside are five products: Urban Decay Afterglow highlighter powder in Sin, IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black, Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Surfer Girl, Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray, and Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key.

Urban Decay Afterglow highlighter powder in Sin ($9 sample value): This is a long lasting highlighter. I have to admit that it is not pigmented as Becca but I love the subtle shade it creates. I also love how smoothly it glides on. It creates a natural glow.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black ($12 sample value): It is formulated with powerful peptides and proteins, strengthening biotin, lash lifting polymers and plumping collagen to help keep lashes healthy and strong. It keeps my lashes look more intense, longer and fuller. However, it does leave lashes a little clumpy.

Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Surfer Girl ($18):  This nail polish is 5 Free, Cruelty-Free, Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, Vegan, and the formula is infused with organic bamboo extract, argan oil, and shea oil. I absolutely love the color. However, you have to layer it more than two layers to get a consistent color. Nevertheless, the color is perfect for the beach.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray: An ultra-light, leave-in conditioning spray that brings hydration and moisture to locks without weighing them down. However, I did not find it to be anything special.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key ($16): I actually am okay with the shade. However, it is a little drying on my lip. I addressed it by using eos as my lip primer.

My dear readers! Though I really love Ipsy, overall, the May Ipsy Glam Bag a is much better than the April one.

March Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy8.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great Saturday. Today I want to talk to you about the March Ipsy Glam Bag. As you know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

Description: The March Ipsy Glam Bag comes in a light peach makeup bag with the following five products: Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer, Tarte cosmetics tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in vibin, ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black, Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa, and Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush.

Air Repair Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer: I love the fact that this moisturizer is packed with antioxidants and I have sensitive skin but like trying new products. This one didn’t dry my skin out.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tarte cosmetics tarteist quick dry matte lip paint in vibin: This lip paint has velvet matte finish and is neither too matte nor too glossy. I really enjoy the color and it lasted all day! However, It’s a dry formula, and it came off in flakes. To counteract that I wear my Eos balm as a base, which really keeps my lips moisturized.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

ModelCo Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner in Black: This is a long-wearing, water-resistant formula that doesn’t smudge, budge, or transfer. However, it’s really wobbly and hard to draw with. I am always afraid that it will break anytime. I am really disappointed with this one. I would rather use a liquid liner.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow in Marisa: This is a shimmery rose colored shadow and gives a nice subtle tone to your eyes. However, for a more dramatic look first just spray your brush with a setting spray. I am an eyeshadow fanatic and love that this shadow glides in smoothly and does not flake. However, I really do not like the fact that it has talc it. I am not a fan of talc, hence I am not happy about it.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Beau Gâchis Tapered Blending Brush: This is a nice soft brush. However, I am really disappointed that I didn’t choose brushes in my preference but was still sent brushes.

Overall, I am disappointed with the March Ipsy Glam Bag. However, I really like the makeup bag, the moisturizer, and the Tarte lip stain. I am hoping for a better bag next month as the last few bag did not disappoint me.

Do you like beauty products and love products each month, then just click on the link here and sign up for ipsy to get your beauty bag each month for just $10 per month.

February Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy7b.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday! Today, I want to talk to about February Ipsy Glam Bag. As you may know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

ipsy7

Description: The February Ipsy Glam Bag comes in a denim makeup with neon border and five products: Marsh Mineral Eyeshadow in You’re Toast, Luna Highlighter in Calypso, NYX Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry, Absolute New York Nano Eyeliner, and Biobelle Fiber Facial Masks in #Stay Gorgeous and #iWokeUpLikeThis.

Marsh Mineral Eyeshadow in You’re Toast: This 100% natural eyeshadow can be used wet or dry depending on your need for a dramatic or subtle result. The shadow retails for $22. This is a nice shimmery shade for a night out. However, I am not a big fan of the container though the shadow is very pigmented.

Luna Highlighter: The pale lavender baked highlighter is buildable and looks on every skin tone. It retails for $23. It glides on easily and creates a beautiful glow. It is highly pigmented, hence little goes a long way. I really like the subtle look it creates.

NYX Butter Lipstick: This satin finish lipstick is creamy.  It has a beautiful semi-sheer color. I love how it glides on and the color was vibrant on my lips. It is also quite moisturizing. However, it transfers easy and fades quick, not long-lasting whatsoever. The lipstick retails for $6.

Absolute New York Nano Eyeliner: This ultra fine precision liquid liner is water-, smudge-, and fade-resistant, hence stays put all day. It glides on easily. In order to test how I well liner works I try to create something with the liner on my skin so check if the liner glides on easily and the if liner can fine precision line. As you can see from the picture of the panda (something close to panda maybe?) that the lines are fine and precise. I really like that the liner is waterproof. It is very precise when you need a simple line to open up your eye look. However, it is not recommended for use when you want a thick line. It retails for $9.99.

Biobelle Fiber Facial Masks in #Stay Gorgeous and #iWokeUpLikeThis: These are all natural, biodegradable fiber that adheres face like a second skin. #StayGorgeous had almond oil that softens and moisturizes skin, while #iWokeUpLikeThis contains vitamin c, which is responsible for brighter skin. In order to use the masks, leave on for 20 minutes, then remove before the mask is completely dry. If you’re planning to moisturize after, give your skin a quick rinse, otherwise, just massage in any excess. These masks were quite refreshing, they made my skin soft. I’ve only used one so far but I loved it. Stays on your face fairly well and delivers a lot of product. I will update if there is any issue with the other mask. Each mask retails for $4.99. Hence two retails for $9.98.

In conclusion, my February Glam Bag contains  $70.97 worth of products for just $10 in a beautiful makeup bag. Do you like what you see here, when like on the link here and sign up for ipsy get your beauty bag each month for just $10 per month.

When you sign up, $200+ in beauty, fashion, and wellness finds for just $49.99/season. For a limited time join me and get 10 off the first box by clicking here.

This box is valued at $257.98 and I only paid $34.99 with my discount code.

Modcloth Lock and Key Scarf: I actually love this scarf. It is so warm. You can wear it so many different ways. As it says in the description card, belt it, wrap it, or rock it like a poncho and you will be just as warm as you will be stylish.

fabfit10.jpg

The Created Co. To Go Coffee Mug: It’s nice to wake up in the morning and sip coffee in an inspirational coffee mug. Though I am not a big fan of plastic mug, but it’s very nice to know that 10% of the profit goes to charity: water’s mission to bring safe and clean drinking water to those in need. Kudos to that!

fabfit4

Fabfitfun Coloring Book & Colored Pencil: This is a fall coloring book. This is a great way to destress. I know this from experience. My sketches and paintings have helped me through some hardest times in life. I am given mine to someone close, who is currently going through a hard time, and she found it to be helpful.

fabfit7.jpg

fabfit7b

Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain: This is a primer, lip stain, and gloss in one, it eliminates the need for a hefty makeup bag but ensures that your lips stay lusciously vibrant all day long.  It applies easily and doesn’t show many flaws in the lips. However, it does feather. While it’s moisturizing, you’ll have to reapply it a time or two during the day. A lot of it transfers to mugs and cups when you drink.

fabfit9

Marrakesh Argan and Hemp Hair Oil: This product provides long-lasting frizz control, and is safe for color-treated hair. It provides deep-moisturizing shine and conditioning to your hair and also protects while you heat-style or straighten. I find that it makes my hair look smooth and shiny even when I am not able to blow dry and flat iron. I also use it in my hand to keep it soft. Hemp seed oil improves moisture and elasticity to the skin by lubricating beneath the surface. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that are perfect for those with sensitive skin, eczema or rosacea.

fabfit8.jpg

O.R.G Skincare Mineral Peel Face: I am big fan face feel because it gets rid of dead skins, exfoliates, and reveals glowing skin. Hence, just spray it on, massage it on, and get ready to glow.

Jook & Nona Tag Necklace: This is beautiful 18k gold plated stainless necklace that will a chic look to any outfit. I especially love the “Inspire” word in it.

fabfit6.jpg

Anderson Lilley Beach Butter Body Cream: This cruelty-free cream is free of parabens, pegs, artificial colors, petrolatum and mineral oil. Just apply to hands and body as often as needed to hydrate and nourish your skin.

fabfit5

Zoya Nail Polish: I always love Zoya nail polish because they are vegan and cruelty-free. I can use this polish without having to worry about harmful chemicals. Every bottle of Zoya nail polish is “5-free,” meaning it is free of DBP, camphor, toluene, formaldehyde, and formaldehyde resin, and I love the color.

First Look at the Look Fantastic Subscription Box


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. Today, I wanted to take the time and go over the first ever experience with the Look Fantastic Beauty Box. It is an online British beauty boutique. This European company offers 1, 3, 6 or 12-month subscription and all boxes will continue to dispatch up until this point and then the subscription will not renew.

I have tried this subscription box for the first time. I signed up for a 3-month subscription for $54. For the first box, I received six beauty products: Philip Kinsley Elasticizer Pre-Shampoo Treatment, Balance Me Dailly Essentials Pure Skin Face Wash, CoQ10 + Caviar Face Mask Sheet, Mellow Ultra Matte in Madness, and Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel.

lookfantastic2

Philip Kinsley Elasticizer Pre-Shampoo Treatment: I have fine, thin hair. I used in wet hair and then covered my scalp with a shower cap. I washed my hair after 20 minutes. My hair felt soft and manageable. I am not a big fan of spending too much time on hair treatment at home, however, I was impressed with the result. However, knowing me, I am not sure if I am going to spend money on this product when I same result with other product. I will share my review in a later post.

lookfantastic

Balance Me Dailly Essentials Pure Skin Face Wash: This is a daily cleanser that eliminates daily grime and makeup. It has a nice scent. I literally just washed my face with this face wash after a long day and my face feels fresh and clean. My face feels little cleaner and lighter than the Philosophy Purity wash. However, I will not spend $20 for a 125 mL face wash. I want to thank Look Fantastic for introducing me to a natural product.

lookfantastic4.jpg

CoQ10 + Caviar Face Mask Sheet: This is a deep hydrating sheet mask that retails for $6.50. It combines Caviar with CoQ10 and Witch Hazel, the serum mask expertly enhances skin elasticity while hydrating, protecting and reducing redness. It’s a straight up dermatologist tested mask that is not only good for tightening skin, it also repairs and rejuvenates damaged skin cells. What I liked about this serum drenched sheet mask is that it made my skin feel soft and hydrated.

Mellow Ultra Matte Lipstick in Madness: This is more like a creamy matte lipstick that is highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. It glides on smoothly, leaving a velvety-smooth, moisturizing finish. The color is nice as well. I have been wearing this for the past three hours and the pigment is still strong and lip still feels moisturized.

Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel: This my friends was a pure disappointment. In Incredible Hulk’s words, I received a puny little sample size that didn’t hydrate my skin much. I actually didn’t see any difference in my skin. For the price of $45 for 30ml, this gel is definitely not the price.

lookfastic7.jpg

Bubble T Bath & Body – Bath Fizzer in Hibiscus & Acai berry Tea: This bath bomb  is infused with a combination of unique tea and fruit fragrances to leave you feeling restored. I am not a big bath person. However, after a long stressful week, I didn’t realize how much I need this bath bomb to freshen me.

My beautiful and wonderful readers, this was my very first experience with Look Fantastic. Since they are located in the UK, communication is not great. However, once do you get hold of them their customer service is wonderful. They really try to work hard to get any issues resolved. However, I am not sure if I can go through a long line of communication where I have to wait for few days to get any questions answered.

January Ipsy Glam Bag


ispy

Hi there my lovelies! Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Friday so far. To be honest, I did not imagine today the way it turned out to be. However, we cannot dwell on the past. As I have said before, I believe in the saying, “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” So, my beautiful readers, make the most of today and fight for your beliefs because time waits for no one.

Today, I want to review the January Ipsy Glam Bag. In came in a blue silver stunner that was inspired by skyscrapers! Inside the bag are 5 items: Pretty Women Nail Polish in I Am Not a Ballerina, NOTE Fragrances Pink Peony Eau de Parfum (5 mL), Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss in Blame Game, ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini, and Manna Kadar Cosmetics Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow.

Pretty Women Nail Polish in I Am Not a Ballerina: Who does not like a nice pink toned nail polish? I love the baby pink color. One thing that I love the most about this nail polish is that it is vegan and cruelty-free. The retail price for the polish is $7.99.

NOTE Fragrances Pink Peony Eau de Parfum (5 mL): This larger than normal sample size has a light floral tone with a hint of citrus, jasmine, and amber musk. The smell is not overpowering. The 5 mL sample retails for $6.

Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss in Blame Game: This is lip gloss looks little darker than nude on my lips. I naturally have a darker lip color hence I have added it to my skin for review. I have been wearing it for couple hours now and so far my lips are still hydrated. I do have to admit that I have not eaten or drank anything during this time. This gloss retails for $22.

ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini: This is a light peach colored blush that creates a nice glow to brighten every complexion. I am always a big fan softer toned blushes and this is a nice one to own. The blush retails for $26.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow: Finally the 3-in-1 is a pearlized powder blush, highlighter, and eyeshadow that comes in a champagne pink shade. It glides on smoothly and evenly in order to provide the perfect amount of color for a healthy glow on your eyes, cheeks or desired areas for highlighting. This Fantasy 3-in-1 retails for $19. I actually love the soft glow it creates and can wait to use it.
