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

March 2016 IPSY

thumb_IMG_4990_1024   thumb_IMG_9570_1024

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

This is my review on this duo set, continue reading to see if this is something worth trying out or to learn more about it.  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

thumb_IMG_7927_1024   thumb_IMG_7928_1024Hello lovely! This blog post is my review on each skincare product that comes with the Skin Wonderland set, from Sephora Favorites. I wrote about this set a few posts back when it first came out. Just to recap, this particular set was available only at JCPenney, and now after I have tried and tested out the products, I will briefly share my opinion about the individual items. This set, unfortunately, is no longer in stock, but each item mentioned is sold individually in stores and some are sold online. If you are looking for skincare products to add to your routine or want to know more about the products shown above, this post is for you.  Continue reading

Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip 2015 4 of 4

thumb_IMG_4961_10241   thumb_IMG_4957_10241Hello Beauties! Thank you so much for your patience! I have finally concluded part 4 of 4 on the Sephora Give Me More Lip Favorite Set review. As you all know, this set was a limited holiday edition, and is no longer in stock. I did write a blog post when it first came out, and have written a first impression on all 15 products. I broke this review up into 4 parts so you wouldn’t have to scroll down for an hour reading my post. I also broke it up so that I could test out the products a bit more and give you a review on each item. I hope this review gives you a better idea about the individual lip product, if you had been wanting to know more about them. Or perhaps, this post will introduce a new lip item to your collection. Enjoy!  Continue reading

Sephora Oh What Fun Freebie Sack

thumb_IMG_7050_10241   thumb_IMG_7037_10241Hello Beauties! This is the third and final free sample bag from Sephora this year. I was not planning to get this I swear! I was not going to purchase any more products that is until I received an email and a postcard reminding me of a $20 off on any purchase of $50. I could not pass it up. Sigh* I caved and purchased my first eyeshadow palette. After much research on which one I should purchase I took the plunge and purchased my first Naked Palette. Anyway, this post is not about that, this post is about this free festive bag with any online purchase of $25 or more. It comes with 1 full-size sheet mask from Sephora plus 7 mystery samples. After looking at all the possible items I could get I was really hoping to get any one of these: Lipstick from Shiseido, Glamglow Mud Mask, Becca, or Estee Lauder eye cream. Not everyone gets the same samples so if you would like to be completely surprised do not read my post since I show you everything I received. If you are interested in this freebie the code is: SURPRIS3 make sure to add that during checkout so you can get one too. Continue reading
