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 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 Give Me More Lip 2015 1 of 4

thumb_IMG_4675_10241   thumb_IMG_4704_10241   I have been gifting the $25 Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip as gifts since lip products are my beauty item must-haves. I had planned to buy a set for myself but they were sold out! When I checked back a few weeks later I was really excited when Sephora came out with their Holiday Give Me More Lip set for $59! I purchased one immediately and now that I’ve had this set for some time I wanted to write a blog post about it. When I saw that it was out of stock I wasn’t sure if I should put up a post, that is until I saw a few in stores and then they restocked online a  few days ago! If you were eyeing this kit and weren’t sure if you should purchase continue reading for my overview, price breakdown, and swatches. Perhaps this is something you want to pick up during the VIB ROUGE or VIB sale that is coming up soon. Continue reading

Tarte Amazonion Clay Blush Palette

IMG_4276   IMG_4270

I’ve been wanting to purchase Tarte blushes for the longest time. But for a full size product that is 0.2 oz in size and a price of $28 a blush, it is something to really consider about. It doesn’t help that they have over 15 colors to choose from, they all look so gorgeous it’s so hard to pick 1! Spending $140 plus tax for 5 of them is way beyond my budget. So when Tarte created their ‘Holidaze 2015 Bling It On Blush Palette’ with 4 limited edition shades and 1 permanent color I was stoked. Continue reading

A bright pink bubbled package was waiting for me at home, and this can only mean one thing, Ipsy. As usual I had no idea what was inside since I didn’t look at the spoilers. Honestly it is always more exciting not to know what’s inside and much more disappointing if you were expecting one of the items from the sneak peek and not getting it. Usually after looking at my products I go on the Ipsy site and see what the other Ipsters received and what I could’ve gotten. So far I am usually happy with my curated bags and content with the products. Continue reading

Ulta 17 Piece Variety Beauty Bag

IMG_1928   IMG_1779p

I usually go to Sephora online to purchase most of my makeup products and I have never been to an Ulta in person or online. I was prompted to check them out when I found out that they were having a limited time only promotion. With any $60.00 purchase you can choose either a clear yellow or clear pink makeup pouch with 17 deluxe sample sized products. Not 3-5 but 17 samples for free! I say free because some of the other promotion requires you not only to pay a certain amount to qualify but also pay an additional price for sample bags. I had to check Ulta out!

July 2015 IPSY REVIEW

   473

As an Ipsy member I received an email from Ipsy asking if I wanted a sneak peek at my products. Since I didn’t share my Ipsy bag on social media I was not able to see what was in my bag this month. I did however check a few days later online to see if I could see my items online but it was too early for them to release the products. So I kind of forgot about it until a few days later when my postman handed me my hot pink bubbled package as I was heading home. I was really excited because I had no idea what to expect this month and the package felt bulky. Continue reading
