Walmart Winter 2017 Beauty Box

Better late than never! I got this box about month ago but never got around to posting it until now. Holidays are always a busy time for me. I like how they mixed it up a little bit more with this box — I think it’s one of the more different ones from their past boxes. Still a great deal for $5 just to try these out. Here’s what I got in my Walmart Winter 2017 Beauty Box.

Overall, like I mentioned earlier I feel like they changed it up more with this box compared to the previous ones. This is mostly due to the sleeping mask and the flossers. I’m very glad they decided to switch up from the usual travel size shampoo and conditioner. I feel like they’ve done that A LOT. They have a lotion in just about every box too but at least they do change that up I think.

I’m most excited about the sleeping mask! Can’t wait to try it out.


ipsy August 2017 Glam Bag

Better late than never! Here’s my take on the ipsy August 2017 Glam Bag.

While the bag is cute, I am more interested in the makeup items I got. First item that caught my eye is the Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask. They can attribute that to the bright eye-catching packaging color. I use face masks at least twice a week now so there will be a post on this in 2 months or so. Next is SUGAR Cosmetics Stroke Of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl. The shade I got is 01 Back to Black. I think this is the only shade this particular product item comes in for now though. Then we have the Hey Honey Come Clean: Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub. I’ve been using this about thrice a week and will be posting about it in the next few days. Next we have the MAKE UP FOR EVER EXCESSIVE LASH Arresting Volume Mascara. I have used products from this brand with fairly good results so I’m keeping this one to try out later. Last up is theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow. The shade I got this in is Kuwakaribisha. It’s a nice, light shimmery shade that is quite versatile as it can also be used as a highlighter.

Overall, very nice. My next bag should be coming soon and I can’t wait to see what I get!

ipsy June 2017 Glam Bag

Hey guys! It’s been a busy few weeks for me here. Just trying to enjoy summer but there’s always work, chores and a hell of a lot of other stuff. But again, better late than never (heck, I just got my ispy Julu G;am Bag yesterday!) so here’s my take on the ipsy June 2017 Glam Bag.

The bag is made of canvas material I think. It’s functional but not really my style but that’s quite alright as someone else will get good use out of it. First item that caught my eye is the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream. It’s really hard not to notice it with such bright color for product packaging. Next up is the NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé. I’m not sure if I’ll try this out or not. I’m trying to minimize my makeup stash at the moment. The shade I got this in is Cocoa Bean. Then we have the Hey Honey Uncover Detoxifying Mud Mask. I like face masks, especially mud based ones so watch out for a review on it soon. Next we have the theBalm Balm Springs Blush. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — LOVE their packaging even the small ones like this. It’s so darn cute. I think I can rock this shade so it’s a keeper. Last up is Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara. It’s going to my gifting pile as I have too many mascaras lined up to try already.

I wish the bag was different but can’t complain cause I’m so in love with July’s bag! 🙂

ipsy February 2017 Glam Bag

What a month it’s been! Time sure flies by fast. It felt like the holidays were just here. I got this in earlier but I wasn’t too excited about it so I took my time in posting about it. Here’s my take on the ipsy February 2017 Glam Bag.

The bag is made of denim — not really my cup of tea but seems to be built pretty good even though it’s thin. First item that caught my eye is the NYX Butter Lipstick. The shade I got this in is called Ripe Berry. I LOVE this shade and have high hopes that it translates the same onto my lips. Next up is the True Botanicals Resurfacing Moisture Mask. I will be trying this out shortly so stay tuned for a blog post on my thoughts on it. The directions on how to use this seems pretty straightforward: “Massage on dry skin (yep, dry), leave on for two to five minutes, then just wipe off with a damp washcloth (no need to rinse). We like using it twice a week before bedtime.” Then we have Lord & Berry Eye Pencil. The shade I got this in is Black. This is a nice small-sized eye pencil that I can take with me even when I’m only carrying the bare minimum. I can’t wait to try this out! Next we have MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow. The shade I got this in is called You’re Toast. It looks to be a pretty gold shade. Last up is The Organic Pharmacy Lip & Eye Cream. This item made me think about it a lot. The skin around the eye and the lips are quite different so I’m having a hard time seeing how a product can effectively affect both areas BUT I’ll try it out and share my thoughts on it here later on.

Overall, eh….I ended up liking it more than I thought I would. I was expecting more out of the makeup bag itself as February is Valentine’s Day but I think they just didn’t go with the Valentine’s theme this time around. That’s cool….I can’t wait to see next month’s bag now! I actually see it on the website right now and it looks so cute and chic!

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Acai Purifying Clay Mask

Hey guys! How’s 2017 going so far for you? Mine is going slow and steady, but no complaints at all over here! It’s Chinese New Year here today and I’m just relaxing at home, trying to catch up with small errands and hoping to squeeze some time on the elliptical in. I don’t typically make any goals or resolutions for the new year but I’m trying to stick with eating better (healthier) and working out more. We’ll see how it goes. So far, the working out part is on track but the eating part is kinda flip-flopping. Hehe. Anyway, today’s blog post is on one of my favorite items from Freeman. Here’s my take on the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Acai Purifying Clay Mask.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Acai Purifying Clay Mask

What I love about this product? It comes in the tube packaging that makes it easy to use. The color of the tube is so bold, colorful and eye-catching. The scent leans on the strong side but I like it. It’s an artificial take on various berries. Even with my sensitivity to strong scents, I can tolerate this as it’s only on my face for a little bit. I love how it tightens the skin on my face as it dries. It makes me feel like it’s working! I love face masks with clay as they suck up all the oils from my face. Directions are easy to follow on the back of the tube. Just apply the product to face and neck. Sometimes when I want to use a clay mask in the winter but am afraid it’d be too drying, I apply it right onto my face without washing it first. Leave it on until it dries and wash off with warm water. It is recommended to be used “two times a week or as often as needed”. This product leaves my face tight, clean, clear and soft — very purifying indeed!

What I don’t like about this product? If I have to be really picky, the strong scent. If they went lighter on the scent with this, it’d be close to perfect.
