Hey guys! I got this month’s offerings from ipsy a few days ago and I’m happy to say things are looking up! I had a great run with ipsy for a long time and then the stuff I got from the last few bags just didn’t really do it for me. The bags itself were more misses than hits lately too although I tried to stay positive about them all. This month’s a whole different story! Here’s what I got in my ipsy March 2015 Glam Bag.
While I ‘m not a huge fan of floral prints, I absolutely adore this month’s bag! The colors are so pretty and soothing. It’s refreshing and I think I’m going to pass this cute number along to one of my nieces. The colors in this just reminds me of her. I’ve never heard of the brand Chella so I was curious as to what the product could be. I thought it was an eye shadow pencil initially, but it’s actually a highlighter. I don’t highlight at all, so I’ll save this to pass it on to someone who does. Next item is from a brand I am very familiar with. I’ve never tried anything from Sexy Hair before until I got one of my favorite hair care items to date (Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner) in my ipsy January 2014 Glam Bag. With that said, I’ve been looking for another leave-in hair treatment and the Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Creme Oil fits the bill. The NYX Butter Lipstick shade I got is called Little Susie. It’s a very pretty shade that I actually like — I’m keeping this one. I heard the formula is quite lovely, so I’m looking forward to providing a full review here soon. I also got the MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow this month and like most eye shadows I get from my past ipsy glam bags….I’ll be passing this one to someone else who can use it. The last item I got is the dr. brandt® pores no more anti-aging mattifying lotion. This item intrigues me and I’ll be trying it out starting tomorrow. I don’t wear any makeup at all usually (just moisturize and go!) and I’d like to see if this actually works. I have pretty big pores that I detest, but I like the ease of not wearing much makeup at all (aka moisturizer only).
Now that this bag got me all excited about ipsy again, I can’t wait for the next month’s bag! :)
Hey guys! If you’re an IT Cosmetics fan then today’s your lucky day! IT Cosmetics has this neat set that is on TSV on QVC all day today while supplies last. All of the products in this kit is new. It’s definitely worth checking it! I really liked their last TSV set on QVC Your Most Radiant You!. The ombre blush is just too pretty! Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll be getting in this IT Cosmetics New Year, Your Most Beautiful Skin! 5pc Collection.
The item I am most excited about in this set is actually the lipstick. I haven’t tried any lip products from this brand and I’m a huge lipstick fan. The shade I got is in Love. The brush is another item I’m eager to have to add to my stash. The bristles are so soft — just as I would expect from an IT Cosmetics makeup brush. The one item I am most intrigued about is the CC+® Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream Compact. In the press release here, it speaks of it as a dispensing compact where it releases the product with the push of a button. I look forward to seeing that in action. I’m curious to find out if the CC+® Eye Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream is better than their product I already own, their Bye Bye Under Eye® Waterproof Anti-Aging Concealer. The description seems to be that they’re similar in purpose of concealing at least. The newer one sounds fancier though based on the description.
They’re packaged pretty nicely in a sturdy casing that holds everything just like the previous kits I’ve received. I LOVE the packaging of this kit from the individual boxes to the actual items. They all have a hint of holographic goodness that makes me giddy.
This deal will run until 11:59 PM PT today while supplies last.

I got their TSV on QVC kits the last 2 times: IT Cosmetics IT’s All About You 5pc Customer Favorites Collection and IT Cosmetics Your Most Radiant You! 5pc Collection. I can say for a fact that this brand’s products are top notch and the awards they got for 2014 only backs up that claim (and hype as well!).
This box came wayyy later than I expected. But I didn’t mind really since I have all the holiday stuff and sales going about. I actually almost forgot about it until I saw a charge in my credit card statement. Here’s what I got with my Walmart Winter 2014 Beauty Box.
Everything came in the same sturdy cardboard box as with the Fall one. None of the items really speak out to me, but it’s not bad for $5 really.
I feel that the Walmart Fall 2014 Beauty Box was definitely better in terms of value for the $5 I paid. I’ve already reviewed the Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream here since I got this one from the Target Spring 2014 Beauty Box earlier.
Overall, I’m not feeling this box really. I’ll wait for one more box to determine if I’ll continue on with this or canceling my subscription.
Hey guys! It’s getting colder every single day. For my sanity, the tree is up and half of the presents are all wrapped and stuck under the tree. Yes, a reindeer died cause of that but guess what? I won’t have time to put up the tree after Thanksgiving. I just wanted it out of the way. I’m waiting for more stuff to come in to wrap them up when I stumbled upon another problem — I ran out of wrapping paper. Oh! How did this ever happen?! I have hundreds of ribbons and bows but no wrapping paper. I’m guessing I didn’t see it as a high priority item when I shopped from the after Christmas sales last year and I should’ve. Lesson learned. So with that happening, I had time in my hands to take a few pictures of what I got in my ipsy November 2014 Glam Bag.
The first item that caught my eye is the Elizabeth Mott you’re so FINE Eyeliner. The shade I got is Glitterati. The packaging caught my eye and while I’m eager to try this out, I have many products already in this category so I’ll toss this as an add-on to a Christmas gift for one of my nieces. Next item up is the TEMPTU S/B Highlighter. The packaging makes me think of baby milk bottles — it’s so cute! The shade I got is Pink Pearl. I have used highlighters before just to see how it works and I’ll be sure to try this one out. Then we have L.A. Colors Chunky Lip Pencil. The shade I got is Wine. I saw this and immediately thought of my niece that loves lip products, so I’ll be saving this one up for her. The consistency is said to be between a lipstick and a lip gloss, which reminds me of the Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain. I wasn’t too happy when I saw that I got the Demeter Pixie Dust Roll On Perfume Oil. While I loved some of their scents, they usually give me a headache shortly after application. I’ll save this one up for an extra in a gift or something. The last item in my bag is my favorite out of everything I got this month. I got the Nicole by OPI Nail Polish in Guys & Galaxies, which is an ipsy exclusive shade. I love this shade! It’s glitter and very pretty. The bag this month is a cute silver glitter zip top made by clothing and accessories brand Forever21 for ipsy. Material is like a plastic coated type where liquids roll of easily — a bonus feature to me.
While this bag has been the most disappointing one in months I’m still a huge fan of ipsy. I mean, I did like some of the products I got and it’s just a matter of what I can use more sometimes. This month’s offering just doesn’t apply to me as much, but with such great bags for months now….I can’t really get mad at ipsy for missing the mark in terms of personalization with this one. I can’t wait now for next month’s bag!
