Hey guys! I got this in the mailbox when I was away on a short trip so I was wary about it since it was mildy hot here but everything seems to be okay. Here’s what I got in my ipsy September 2015 Glam Bag.
First off, the bag. I actually love it! I’m very excited since I really liked last month’s bag as well. Before that it was a series of pretty much mehs for me. First item that caught my eye is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair® Cream. I *think* I have this somewhere stashed from some Thanksgiving sale last year but I never got around to using it. Now I will have a travel sized one to use! This will ensure I actually get to try the product sooner. Next up is Formula X Nail Color. The shade I got is called Ignite. I have too many polishes to go through at the moment so I might just pass this on as a stocking stuffer to one of my nieces later on. Then we have the NYX Cosmetics ipsy Eye Shadow Trio. It looks to be a pretty nice trio and the colors seem like it will work for most eye colors. Next is tre’StiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon. I have too many lip items so off to the stocking stuffer stash it goes. Last item is the ACURE Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes. Being that this is unscented, I’m keeping this baby for use when my husband and I go on one of our hikes.
Overall, the products are not bad but I do love the bag more. I was going to cancel but the auto-renewal kicked in and at the moment I’m okay with that. Haha, let’s see if I still feel that way next month (I hope so!).
While I I loved most of the items from the Target Head Of The Class 2015 Beauty Box, I couldn’t resist getting this one as well. Here’s the Target Honor Roll 2015 Beauty Box.
Everything came in a black reusable sturdy cardboard box. For $5, again, you really can’t go wrong. I almost didn’t get it (just like the Head Of The Class beauty box released at the same time) and I’m glad that I did.
I gave the elastics from the other box away so I’m keeping this one of myself. The item I am most excited to try is the John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment. The first item I opened and used is the NYX Butter Gloss. The shade I got is Strawberry Parfait. I’ve been using a bath mitt for a while now so a bath pouf (they call it sponge but I call those things poufs) would be nice for a change. I actually think I’ll be using every single thing in this box. All in all, I like this beauty box better and as usual it does come with a $3 off $15 coupon on beauty items to use at Target.
While I still have most of the items from the Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box untouched still, I couldn’t resist when they rolled out 2 more beauty boxes recently. Here’s the Target Head Of The Class 2015 Beauty Box.
Everything came in a black reusable sturdy cardboard box. For $5, you really can’t go wrong. I almost didn’t get it and am so glad that I did. I see myself using most of these items.
I gave the elastics and the towelettes to my co-worker sis Renu as part of a small thank you gift for all the driving she’s done the past month. She uses both items so it’ll be put to good use. I am most excited to try the dry oil spray. I’ve tried one from another brand and loved it. Moderation is key though when using those. I’m passing on the mascara and the lip gloss to my nieces probably. I have too many of those open already. All in all, not bad at all and it does come with a $3 off $15 coupon on beauty items to use at Target.
I have their other box to feature later on (I got them a day apart). They’re really stepping up their beauty box game I must say!
Hey guys! It’s been a while! I’ve been trying to finalize my wedding venue and catering these past few days. We almost were about to sign with one venue when another venue that hasn’t gotten back to me finally did and it was my preferred venue when I take into consideration my out-of-town guests. They’re sending over the contract today, so I’m hoping this is it! There’s nothing much happening that’s new in terms of beauty with me recently with the exception of some of Milani 2014 landing at my doorstep. Reviews on those will be coming in soon! For now, read on for my take on the ipsy January 2014 Glam Bag.
The first glam bag of the year! They have hit it out of the park with their recent bags that for once I’m glad I don’t like this one as much (just the bag itself and not the contents)! I know, I know….but if I liked the actual bag a lot every single time, I’d end up with 12 from my annual subscription! Lord knows I don’t need more bags! So I’ll be gladly passing this cute cosmetic bag on to someone else. The products that I got for this month definitely got me excited with the exception of one. The product I was most excited about is the Nourish Organic Lightweight Moisturizing Face Lotion. This is a new-to-me brand and a product that is more on skincare than makeup. It got mixed reviews, so we’ll see when I do try it. The one I don’t care about the most is MicaBeauty 24 Hour Tinted Lip Balm. It’s nothing against the brand or product, it’s just that I have a million lip glosses and balms already that I just don’t need another one. I’m going to set this aside for a giveaway or an extra in someone’s gift. The one that appealed to me the most packaging-wise is willa On The Go Face Towelettes. The packaging is so cute and whimsical. It caught my eye immediately. It’s definitely something I could use, but I’m saving it up for travel. It’s convenient and easy to use. Another item that I’m meh about is the Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow. I have lots of eye shadow products that I don’t need another one of these. Since I use lip products more, I keep more of those. I am pickier when it comes to eye color then. So this will be the other item I’ll pass on to someone else. The last item is one that I have used several times now and am loving it! Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner works wonders for my hair. My issue right now is that it gets really tangly with my daily activities. It smells good, keeps the tangles at bay and leaves my hair soft to the touch. A definite winner for me.
Overall, not bad but I’m definitely hoping for a bag with items I can all use next month!
