Sephora Natural Oasis Sample Bag

thumb_IMG_0790_1024  thumb_IMG_0829_1024Hello Beauties! A few weeks back if you were shopping online on Sephora’s website you had the chance to try out one of seven high end skincare deluxe samples with the promo code: FUTURE. Brands we’ve all heard so many awesome things about including Sunday Riley, Drunk Elephant, and Tatcha to name a few, but pricey to purchase if trying to figure out which one works best for your skin type. Let’s just say that promo code went out of stock in a few days. A couple of days later Sephora offered a 12 piece sampler with the promo code: Oasis  with more natural goodies to try out, this did not last long either. This blog post contains information about the12 piece sampler set including price breakdown and size. I will follow up with 3 separate posts to share my first impressions and my thoughts on these products and if they are worth purchasing just by trying out these foil samples.  Continue reading

MAY 2016 IPSY

thumb_IMG_0587_1024   thumb_IMG_0625_1024Hello Beauty Lovers! My yearly subscription was coming to an end and I was torn on whether I should renew my subscription or try something else. I decided to give it another shot because I did enjoy last month’s bag and a lot of other Ipsters seemed to be happy with their bags too. After receiving a couple of meh bags, I am glad I renewed! This month’s bag is adorable! It’s the first one that has a button snap instead of a zipper. I am really happy with the products too! In this bag I received 2 full size items and 3 deluxe items including: a makeup tool, lip treatment, mascara, lipstick, and fragrance. Here is my mini review for the month of May. Continue reading

April 2016 IPSY

thumb_IMG_5818_10241  thumb_IMG_9529_1024Hey beauties, the last couple of months I was not too impressed with my Ipsy subscription and was thinking of canceling. From watching other un-baggings I feel that these subscription companies do that often. Throw in a few duds and then give us a few awesome bags to keep us subscribed or wanting to subscribe. So that is what happened with this month’s bag. I am rethinking if I should sign up for another year and see what I get next month…  Continue reading

Sephora Favorites Paint It Pink

thumb_IMG_9350_1024   thumb_IMG_9359_1024Hello Beauties! Here is another Sephora Favorites post. No, I am not sponsored in anyway!  But, wouldn’t that be nice?! Sigh*I just really love trying out these kits. Usually they are worth the money especially when they include full size items. Plus, I can try out many brands at once without wasting products or breaking the bank. When it comes to makeup it can take forever to finish up full size products so I enjoy deluxe size ones that come in kits like these. The Paint It Pink set recently sold out online but make sure to check in stores to see if they still have these in stock. I find that sometimes Sephora restocks their favorite kits online at least once until they completely go out of stock. If you are interested in picking one up for yourself or to decide if you would like to purchase any of these items individually then continue reading! Continue reading

March 2016 IPSY

Hello Beauties! Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since subscribing to Ipsy. Next month will be my final un-bagging. I’ve really enjoyed receiving this hot pink bubbled package, but I will not be continuing anytime soon. Main reason being that I haven’t really used most of the samples that I received. My teenager self would’ve loved this subscription service and find all of the products awesome. Especially because for $10 a month you get a variety of products to try out. At this stage of my life I prefer to stay away from certain products that contain harmful ingredients. I am not 100% fully committed to all natural/organic products..not yet at least. However, the past few products I received contain more chemicals that link to cancer than beneficial ones and I feel uncomfortable using them. This is my brief unboxing for March 2016.  Continue reading

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip

thumb_IMG_8939_1024   thumb_IMG_8974_1024Hello Beauties! I’m sure you all know the Sephora Favorites ‘Give Me Some Nude Lip’ has been out earlier this year. I am also certain that you know this set sold out within a couple of days and it is no longer in stock. WAIT, I just rechecked and this set is BACK in stock! Perfect timing! Check out this post or just head on over to Sephora to pick up a set right now if you missed out. I wasn’t sure how these colors would match my skin tone but quickly grabbed one anyway. If you like lip products this post is for you. I swatch and provide images of each product and a brief review for each item. All of the lip products shown in this review are sold separately in stores or online so if any of them appeal to you, you can buy them individually as well.  Continue reading

Sephora Favorites Hydration To Go

thumb_IMG_8831_1024   thumb_IMG_8838_1024Hello Beauties! This blog post is an overview of the Sephora Favorites Hydration To Go. This skincare set features deluxe-size products that hydrate in 4 innovate ways: essence mist, facial mask, multi-purpose oil, and creamy balm. I already own 3 of the 4 products in this set so I was hesitant to purchase this. But of course, Sephora, really knows how to lure customers in! I had to purchase this set when I saw Sephora was having their double points promo for skincare products. I reasoned with myself that I would be getting 3 backup products that I already enjoy, get double points, and try out the mist that got me interested in this set, in the first place. If you like skincare you need to check this one out. This set is still available, so check out this review to see if you would like to pick one up for yourself!  Continue reading

January 2016 IPSY

thumb_IMG_5818_10241   thumb_IMG_8565_1024Hello Beauties! This month’s Ipsy bag has an All Eyes On You theme. Three of the 5 eye-products are full-sized. The other 2 products are random deluxe-sized products, but still pricey when you calculate the product value. This blog post is my first impression on each of the 5 items for the month of January 2016. This is my personal opinion about each of the items as I open and swatch/try them for the first time. Are these products worth the $10 a month? Check back next month for February’s un-bagging and a brief review on the items from this January’s bag, and find out if I actually enjoyed these products or if they were even used at all. Perhaps this will help you decide if you were considering this makeup subscription or if you are here just to see what this Ipster received in her glam bag you are in the right place!
