August Ipsy Glam Bag

img_3357

As you can see, I got a gold bag instead of the usual pink bag this month….interesting….

It’s a new program Ipsy is launching-its called Ipsy Cash, and it’s a beauty rewards program where you get literal cash back for every purchase you make, either in a paper check or to your PayPal. There’s a catalogue type thing with all sorts of beauty products, and it explains how the rewards program works. I’m sure everyone will eventually get it.

img_3358

So any way, the theme for the month is “Good Vibes Only”. There are 3 different Glam bag styles this month, this is the one I got:

img_3366

It’s cute-it’s a faux leather feel, the inside is lined with a purple fabric.

My first item this month:
A True Spring Green Tea Watery Calming Cream

img_3362
It’s got a nice light scent, and isn’t heavy or great. The bottle says “Heritage in France, Rediscovered in Korea”. I’m not sure what that means.

Next we have Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum with Hyaluronic Acid:

img_3360
It’s got sort of an orange-y scent, and I’ve never used a Serum so I’ll let you know 😉

Next, an SL MissGlam x Ipsy precise blending brush. This was the item I had requested for the month as well-

img_3359

It’s cute! Nice teal color, the bristles are soft-seems like a nice little brush, plus I am always down for some new brushes.

I’ve got the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in Big Is The New Black

img_3361

Sorry about the flash-dumb iPhone decided it was very necessary. What sucks is that my lashes suck so bad that even the best mascara on the planet does not help them. I can’t really tell a fabulous one from a shitty one because my lashes are just that puny, thin, and sparse. My lower lashes dont exist. Life is hard, y’all.

Last but not least, Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner in black, obvie-

img_3363
This is full size and retails for 22$. It’s actually a really nice pen liner. I find these much easier than the wand liners.

img_3364

It’s got a great fine line, easy to maneuver.

And there you have it! I’m pleased with this month’s bag. I’ve been subscribing to Ipsy since January and in the past 6 months, they have REALLY stepped it up. Love them.

September Boxycharm Spoiler & Aug Update

img_3348

As I think I mentioned before, Boxycharm subs will include Eyeshadow palettes in all boxes thru December. The September box will have the Pür Cosmetics Soirée Diaries Eyeshadow Palette retailing for 34$.

img_3349

It looks gorgeous-a really pretty neutral/nude palette that any skin shade can use. Sorta reminds me of the Carli Bybel one.

August boxes do have some variations. While all boxes include the tarte palette, the royal and langnickle brushes, and the pür cosmetics lashes, these are some of the variants you may receive.

BellaPierre Gel Eyeliner in Ebony

img_3350

Gel eyeliner, who can’t use a new eyeliner, right? This retails for 15$.

The Beauty Crop GRLPWR Liquid Lip in Date Night-

img_3351

img_3352

Another nice nude. Can I just say that I own a Beauty Crop liquid lip and they smell SO GOOD. Retails for 15$.

And there you have it!!

Thank you to My Subscription Addiction for the info.

Sephora Play! June Review

My Sephora Play! bag came earlier this week and I’m just getting to it now. I actually had a busy week, come to think of if it. So let’s jump right in to things, shall we?

This month has the usual drawstring bag, last month they switched it up but went back to the usual for June.

img_3055
****

The first item we have is First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer

img_3056
Holy moly that’s a long name. It’s a glowing, slightly luminizing primer. I used it yesterday, and I have to say after 4 hours my makeup was splotching between my brows and on my forehead. So it didn’t really make my makeup last. At all. However, as a moisturizer it’s fine, a light coconut scent.
****
Another primer, Benefit The POREfessional.

img_3072
I’ve used this before, wasn’t my most favorite ever in the world? But it’s decent.
****
Here we have OUAI Rose Gold Hair and Body Oil

img_3073
It contains rose hip oil, shea oil, and absinthium oil. A light rise scent-it was nice in my hair, not heavy and helped smooth it out. Also nice on the skin. It comes in a spray pump, which I like.
****
Next is IGK Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel

img_3074
This is supposed to help you get beachy hair, it’s supposed to separate strands for that perfectly tousled bedhead-at-the-beach look. I tried it and it did seem to separate strands, it’s got a fresh scent as well that’s not overpowering.
****
Last but certainly not least is Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade K-Dub.

img_3075
It’s sort of a bright fuschia-pinky color but it’s not garish. I was really looking forward to trying this too, I don’t have any of her liquid lips and I’ve heard good things.

img_3076
I do like it. It’s not streaky, it’s unscented, and it’s nice. I’m just not going to store it next to my Jeffree Star liquid lip 😳😛😱

So that’s it-the June Sephora Play-I’m happy with it, some things I would have normally never tried and some things I wanted to. All in all? Pretty decent!!

June Ipsy Glam Bag!!

My June Ipsy bag came today, to be honest, I’m a little meh over it. Only 1 full size item (I got spoiled with 3 full sized items last month) and one of the items I’ve already received in a Sephora bag previously. But that’s the risk you take when you have 3 subs, right? 😁

So on with it.

The bag is cute this month, and the inside is nicely lined with black fabric. I like it more than I thought I would.

img_3064
*****

The first item is the hey honey Uncover Detoxifying Mud Mask (this was my requested item).

img_3065
It’s not overly fragranced, in fact smells like every mud mask I’ve ever used. I’m looking forward to trying it-I’ll let y’all know the results.

Next up is the Makeup Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil. It’s long-lasting and waterproof, I did get one in my Sephora Play in March. I liked it just fine, but I didn’t feel like it went on as smoothly as some others I have.

img_3066
****
Peek Makeup Black Eye Primer

img_3067
***
I cannot get the lid off of this to save my life. It’s supposed to be a black Primer for smoky Eye looks and dark eye looks, which is actually a really great idea. If I could open it, I’d tell you more. I’m gonna have to have hubs take care of it when he gets home.
****
Next, some pūr mascara.

img_3069
It’s mascara. What can I say. I haven’t tried it yet, but when I do, you’ll know!
*****
Last, but not least-the only full-size item-Margaret Dabbs London nail polish in Green DayLily.

img_3070
I am ALWAYS down for some nail polish-one of my favorite things to get in subs-but this color isn’t my favorite. I feel like Ipsy is always sending me blues and greens. This particular brand retails for 14$, so already more than paid for the monthly subscription.
***

Oh, and this is the theme for the month:

img_3068

So there you have it!! The mascara didn’t wow me, I already have the eyeliner, and the nail polish didn’t knock my socks off. But the black primer is neat, and I asked for the mask, so that’s that!
