ipsy June 2018 Glam Bag

A little late again but better late than never! Ever since I started Pokemon Go from scratch last week, all my free time has been devoted to it. I finished with the Articuno raid with my co-worker friend Lohan and a bunch of his friends. I used all raid passes and I realized I have to get used to being in raids more (I forgot to use the golden razz!!!). Anyway, here’s what I got in my ipsy June 2018 Glam Bag.

The bag I got is nice. It’s a material that will repel drops of water when it comes in contact. Very good to have those on hand. First item that caught my eye is the FORMULA 10.0.6 Three Times Sublime. I love face masks and this one is described on ipsy as “a cleanser, exfoliant, and face mask (yup, all three) that treats blemishes, removes blackheads, unclogs pores, and controls oil.” Next item that caught my eye is the MAKE UP FOR EVER STEP1 Skin Equalizer Primer. I’ll try it out to see how it smoothes out my large pores. Then we have the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Eye Repair Cream. I’ve has great experience using the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream so I have high hopes for this. Next we have the Kaleido Cosmetics Skin Blush. ipsy subscribers got this in either Prom Queen or Primadonna, which is what I got. Last up is the Estate Cosmetics Lip Icing. The shade I got is called Goodie.

Not bad again! Next month’s bag should be out in transit to me shortly and I can’t wait cause I saw what the makeup bag looks like and it looks really nice. I hope the material is nice too.

ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag

I know, I know…it’s October already! But I already took the pictures a while back and rather have them go to waste I’ll just make a quick post about it. Here’s what I got in my ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag.

The bag itself is pretty different from what I’ve come to expect from ipsy for years. I like how it’s edgy. First item that caught my eye is the NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop. I love trying out new facial serums. This is on my next to try as soon as I free up a spot for it in my facial care regimen. Next is Ciaté London Wonderwand Mascara. The shade I got this in is called Black Magic. I think this is the only shade this particular product item comes in for now though. Then we have the Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Radiance Primer. I don’t use primer much but I do testing with it to compare how it fares with other primers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’s just a “thing” of mine. Next we have the The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream. I’m finishing up something from Philosophy right now and I’ll make sure this is next or the one after the next face cream I use. Last up is Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Lip Gloss. The shade I got this in is Nude Beach. I got too many lip stuff open so I’ll add this to my gifting pile. It’s a nice shimmery shade with a gold duochrome flash.

Overall, pretty good. There’s a lot of stuff I will be using in this month’s bag.


NYX Butter Gloss Strawberry Parfait

How are you guys doing today? Hope y’all are having a great week. I can’t wait for the weekend already! I stumbled on this item I got from my Target Honor Roll 2015 Beauty Box today and thought I’d give it a review here. Here’s what I think of NYX Butter Gloss Strawberry Parfait.

What I love about this product? The scent of this product is on the light side. It’s a hint of vanilla bakery sweetness. The shade is a darker pink bordering fuchsia or magenta but not quite as bright. It is not sticky at all like some other lip glosses, so that gets a thumbs up from me. It goes on nice and smooth with the doe foot applicator. Swatches shown above are one swipe and two swipes from left to right.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all! This brand is fairly easy to find and purchase and the quality is pretty good for the price.

NYX Butter Gloss Éclair

While digging through my purse I found a gem that I’ve been using on and off randomly that I got from my ipsy June 2014 Glam Bag. Here’s what I think of NYX Butter Gloss Éclair.

What I love about this product? Oooh! Yum, yum! The scent of this product is light with a touch of sweetness. It’s almost like strawberry vanilla or something. It makes me think of strawberries and cream and cupcakes. The shade itself is pretty light when applied on as a gloss with the doe foot applicator. Éclair is a pale pink shade that makes me think of words like “dusty rose” and “vintage”. It is not sticky like some lip glosses, so that’s a huge relief for me. I don’t expect much staying power from this being that it’s a gloss so the wear is normal to me compared to other lip glosses. Applying it a little thicker makes the color of the product more prominent but it’s not opaque by any means. Swatches shown above are one swipe and two swipes from left to right. The shot taken under the shade isn’t as accurate as the under direct sunlight one and the one with flash due to change in lighting.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all! This brand is fairly easy to find and purchase and the quality is pretty good for the price.

Walmart Spring 2017 Beauty Box

So I actually almost forgot I have this beauty box subscription until an email asked if I wanted to switch it up for something special or stay with whatever setting I have already made in my account. I didn’t want to mess with it so I opted to just stay with my current setting. This popped in my mailbox about a week ago. Here’s what I got in my Walmart Spring 2017 Beauty Box.

Overall, pretty good stuff. In fact, as soon as I saw the lip product I knew that I had to give it to my sister from another mister Renuky. 🙂 It became part of her flip book goodies, which by the way is so much fun to make and hers is the first one I’ve given out so far. I made one for her birthday. 🙂 The shade seems light enough to suit her especially with it being a lip gloss. The first thing I’m trying out is the whitening toothpaste as we’ve been using regular whitening toothpaste and I’m not really seeing any difference so it’s time to change it up!
