ipsy November 2016 Glam Bag

Okay, so it has been a quiet month for me here. I took time to just focus on my life outside of the blog and I’m finally back — refreshed and all. A few sales I took advantage of helped with that too. What did you guys get on Black Friday? I only did minimal online shopping for Christmas. In fact, I have a good amount already wrapped up! Haha! Anyway, before I let November slip away…here’s my post on the ipsy November 2016 Glam Bag.

The bag has a cute pattern and the material makes me think it’s neoprene or something like that. Not my favorite kind of material, but cute still. First item that caught my eye is the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. I’m trying this out next week as I am running out of my current moisturizer. Next up is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I love mascaras. In fact, I have about 7 open ones currently. I just have to get myself to use them more these days. Next we have Absolute New York Matte Stick. The shade I got it in is Dark Red. I thought about keeping this but I already have a few red matte lip colors that I think my nieces would enjoy it more than I would. Then we have the Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow. The shade I got it in is Rose Gold. I honestly don’t care much for cream eye shadows so this will go in my bonus gifting pile. I’m sure one of my nieces would enjoy playing with it. Last up is Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush. I don’t use makeup brushes that much and I already have a ton. Off this goes to the gifting pile! In all fairness though, the brush is super soft to the touch.

I took the test again to eliminate from getting makeup brushes but I’m still getting them about once every 2 months?! But I’ve read complaints on their quiz and how inaccurate it can be. Even so, I can’t wait to see what next month’s bag is like!


ipsy May 2016 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I got my ipsy bag in 2 days ago but didn’t get around to posting about it until today. I opened my package in a dimly lighted restaurant that I thought my makeup bag is actually blue but it’s purplish pink as shown. Here’s what I got in my ipsy May 2016 Glam Bag.

This month’s makeup bag is in the envelope style, which is different from what they usually offer. It’s interesting and while I don’t care for the print much I will say I do like the color. The first item that caught my eye is the Épicé Hydrating Mask. I LOVE face masks and this one has kaolin clay and bentonite listed so I’m very excited to try this one soon. Next item that caught my eye is the Smashbox X-Rated Mascara. The packaging looks so familiar that I’m pretty sure I already have this in my makeup drawer (and if so, I’ll be throwing this one in as an extra in a gift bag). Then we have The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm. I already tried this and I like it! It’s a thick liquid in consistency just like the Neosporin Lip Health Daily Hydration Therapy. Next item in my bag is the Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer. The shade I got is called Radiate. While this looks very pretty and I’m tempted to keep it….it’s going into the extra gifts pile for when I put together gift bags. I already own too many bronzers I don’t use. Last up is the Slmissglam Small Contour W07 Brush. I don’t need any more makeup brushes so this goes to the gifting pile as well.

I like the envelope style makeup bag and there’s enough for me to play around this month. I can’t wait for next month’s bag!


Borghese 9-piece Skincare + Color Collection Set

Hey guys! This week was super hectic. I even worked some today and it’s a Saturday! Hopefully it’ll be over soon. It just makes me look forward to my upcoming staycation even more. I was sent this recently. It was a total surprise really! I just got the package one day — so thank you Borghese! There will be detailed reviews on each product as time goes on but for now, here’s what you get with the Borghese 9-piece Skincare + Color Collection Set.

Borghese 9-piece Skincare + Color Collection Set

This set is currently available still on their website and is on sale! The sale price is actually a very good deal that I would’ve taken advantage of if the set I have wasn’t sent to me. The item I am most excited about in this set is surprisingly the palette. The only makeup item I’ve used from Borghese is their nail polish and I love their formula and colors. But other than that, I know the brand more for their skin care products. The lipcolor is in the shade Grappa while the lip glosses are in shades Spark and Simmer. The eye liner is in the shade Pitch Black. Enough yappin’ here and let’s get to the goods.

I could’ve sworn I blogged about this but when it was time to write a review on one of the items I got in this I couldn’t find the post at all. Here’s what I got with my Walmart Fall 2015 Beauty Box.

Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #2

The last 2 beauty boxes from Target were a hit: Target Head Of The Class 2015 Beauty Box and Target Honor Roll 2015 Beauty Box. Here’s the Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #2.

Target Summer 2015 Beauty Box #2

Everything came in a black reusable sturdy cardboard box. For $7, this is a steal as the estimated retail value of everything here is $35. Being that I loved the past few boxes, I am very pleased with this one.

Clairol Hair Food Moisturizing Hair Mask

CoverGirl Super Sizer Mascara

Olay Active Botanicals Day Lotion & Moisturizing Toner

Fekkai Pré-Soleil Hair Mist

Crest 3D Whitestrips 1hr Express

I am very thrilled with the Clairol Hair Food Moisturizing Hair Mask and Fekkai Pré-Soleil Hair Mist. Those alone made the box worth it for me. As usual it does come with a $3 off $15 coupon on beauty items to use at Target.
