All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Prep School.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive, based on answers you give to a survey and your reviews of your bags.

20150917_115050

I love the bag this month!  If there was the themed card I never noticed it so I have no idea what it is.

20150917_115236 20150917_115226

NYX Cosmetics Ipsy Eyeshadow Trio-$3.00

I like these colours!  This is a special group made for Ipsy but I took the price off of their standard 3 tone shadows.  I have received a few NYX products before and have found them to be easy to use and good products.  My last bag is starting off on a high note.

20150917_115321

Evelyn Iona Cosmetics Cream Blush in Ash-$1.13

I had a bit of a reaction to a product a few days ago so my skin is not at it’s best as I try this.  That being said I was able to blend this in nicely and it might even make me reconsider my normal avoidance of cream blushes.  I thought the colour was going to be crazy pink but it turned out to be natural looking.

20150917_115259

treStiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude-$10.67

These ones are always a bit scary to get since the cap looks like it’s the end of the product and you expect a mess.  This is an okay colour for me but is just a touch to tan to look great.  It might be a occasional wearer instead of my new favourite colour.

20150917_115107

Not Soap, Radio Hand/Body Lotion in The Phoenix-$1.68

I have received a body wash from this company in a previous box and thought it was okay.  The scent is supposed to be uplifting and it really is.  It’s a blend of persimmon and plum and so juicy almost that I love it.  I cannot stop smelling my hands now.

20150917_115138

Bayberry Naturals Rosehip & Hibiscus Moisturizer-$1.95

This is a facial moisturizer that is vegan, organic, and has no sulfates, parabens, phthalates, or artificial dyes or fragrances.  I’m hoping it has the ability to help my skin heal after what it’s been through in the past few days, soooo itchy and red and bumpy.  The fact that this has none of the crazy stuff that normally causes reactions gives me hope.

This months bag has a value of $18.43. That is quite low but as it’s my last bag and I like the stuff in it I guess there is no point to complaining. There were three full sized items this month and the rest are multiple use sizes.  If you would like to get in on the bag you can use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

Ipsy Glam Bag August 2015

Ipsy Glam Bag is a beauty subscription that comes in a pink bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products.

20150825_150557 20150825_150607

The included card tells you nothing but the theme as decided by their stylists.

20150825_151345

Doucce Ultra Precision Eye Liner in Black-$22.00

This seems like it’s full sized.  I don’t need another black eye liner but it does seem to be the favorite colour for them to send out.  This goes on really nicely and there is no pulling or tugging.  It does smear a little with rubbing but should last pretty good.

20150825_150639

Eco-Beauty Good Night. Night Cream.-15g $12.00

I had received the day cream of this a while ago and I’ve almost used it all up by now.  There is a surprising amount of lotion in these tubes.  I’ve found you don’t need that much to cover your whole face either.  I do have the same complaint with this one as the day though……it smells yucky for something I need to put on my face.

20150825_151248

Albertini Divine Skin Hydrator-30mL $1.78

This is a new one for me, a lotion you apply while you are still in the shower.  You use this right at the end and just give it a quick rinse before you hop out.  It doesn’t really have much of scent but is supposed to keep moisture in your skin for up to 24 hours.

20150825_151316

Hikara Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Merlot-$13.00

This gloss is super shiny.  The colour is maybe just a touch dark for everyday wear but only just.  It doesn’t feel sticky at all and it gives good coverage, not too sheer.  I’ve received lots of Hikari products from my boxes and I have found them to be good.

20150825_151232

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted-$13.23

This colour is good.  It is a lavender more than a lilac but I think that’s because it has some grey undertones.  This is a 5 free polish that is also vegan and cruelty free.  For some reason this is just under the regular sized bottle they sell since it’s 15mL compared to 17mL.  If you really like them and nail polish you can get a monthly subscription of 2 polishes a month from their website.

20150825_150617

The bag this month is great too!  It looks like houndstooth but it’s textured plastic.   They seem to favour the zipper being on one side over the top but they are roomy and hold a lot.

This months bag has a value of $62.01. There were three full sized items this month and the rest are multiple use sizes. I’m not sure how they all go with the theme but then again I never really do.There is nothing this month I really dislike, just the smell of one item.  I can maybe limit items that I don’t like by completing the mini surveys about each one and it lets them know how I feel about the type of stuff they send out.   I’m still not super thrilled with the website changes but am learning to get around on it.  If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

 

Ipsy Glam Bag July 2015

All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Swim Into Beauty.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive, based on answers you give to a survey and your reviews of your bags.

20150716_204325 20150716_204333

The included card lets you know the theme of the month and not much else.  It really is just an advertisement for them and their stylists.

20150716_204343

The bag this time is really fun! It seems like it might be a bit smaller then the other ones they normally send but it’s still good.  The change up with the zipper on the front is nice too.

20150716_204403

Ofra Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Bliss-$15.00

They say this can be either an eyeshadow or a highlighter.  I occasionally use a highlighter but this will mostly be used as eyeshadow.  The price I used is for a single pot but includes a case so it might be a touch high.  This colour is super shimmery!  I like the colour but it needs to be put on with a slight hand because it can get a bit garish if you put too much on.

20150716_204505

Octavio Molina Hair La Playa Salt Spray-59mL $7.75

I think this is now the fourth salt spray I have received in two months.  I need things that add texture since my hair is fine but that’s getting a bit much.  It has a great smell though so I will want to use it just to smell great.

20150716_204556

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Balm in French Kiss-$14.00 Full Size

I have received a bunch of Be A Bombshell products but this is the first lip balm.  It feels really smooth on and gives the barest of tints to my lips.  This is a great inclusion for me.

20150716_204419 20150716_204430

Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess-3g $12.38

I had thought this was full sized but it is actually just a third.  It goes to show that with a bit of good marketing you can get something that makes you feel like you got something special.  I shy away from bronzer most of the time but this is such a great colour for my skin that I may begin on a more regular basis.  It has a fine shimmer that helps with the glow and I am super thrilled.

20150716_204449

Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp! Exfoliating Cleanser-20g $10.00

I have already received this sample before in my Birchbox December box.  However I like this cleanser a lot so I am glad to get more.  This has a super fine scrub in it that really polishes your skin without being hard on it.  You are supposed to use it a few times a week but I went more and still had no issues.

This months bag has a value of $59.13. I think the price on the lip balm is highly inflated but that is right from the Bombshell site. There were two full sized items this month and the rest are multiple use sizes. I’m not sure how they all go with the theme but then again I never really do. One item is a repeat for me but since I like it it’s okay.  I can maybe limit items that I don’t like by completing the mini surveys about each one and it lets them know how I feel about the type of stuff they send out.   I’m still not super thrilled with the website changes but am learning to get around on it.  If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

 

Ipsy Glam Bag June 2015

All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Swim Into Beauty.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive, based on answers you give to a survey and your reviews of your bags. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives by logging in to your account.

20150625_181929

The bag this month is pretty cool.  I don’t know what it’s made out of but it’s a bit squishy feeling.  It has a neon orange zipper as well.

20150625_181938 20150625_181952

The included card just gives you a blurb about the theme, not any information on your products.  All of that requires you to log into your account and see your homepage.

20150625_182135

J.Cat Beauty Lipitude Hydrating Lip Stain in Blow Your Mind-$5.99 Full Size

There were two colour options sent out to subscribers this month, both pink shades.  I still don’t like these types of formulas.  It’s almost like a runny lipstick as opposed to a gloss texture.  It gives really dark coverage and smells great but I’m just not really into it.

20150625_182038

Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Foundation Primer-.25oz $8.52

Primer is my favorite thing ever!  This one is gel like and smooths out very easily.  I use primer every day and can’t get enough of it so I am thrilled to get this this month.

20150625_182159

BioRepublic SkinCare Sheet Mask Trio-$11.25 for 3

It’s nice that they consider this one item in your bag instead of three.  I received the Green Tea Detox, Cucumber Breeze, and Aloe Rescue masks.  These are not a mask you spread on your skin but ones that are pre-soaked sheets you press on and wear for 20 minutes.  With kids to chase this can be difficult so I will have to try these after they are in bed.

20150625_182022

NYC New York Color Liquid Eyeliner-$2.77 Full Size

I have the smallest ability to apply liquid liner so this is scary for me.  I just can’t seem to get the hang of it.  I misjudge the pressure and can’t make a straight line even if I use the feather stroke method.  I think this is a good sample, it’s just bad for me.

20150625_182105

tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Kona Coffee-$10.67

I swear that is how this product is spelled, even though my spell check might have exploded after I typed it.  This glides on so easily and it’s really dark.  I might use this more like a liner then a shadow.  There were four shades sent out and there definitely were two others I’d have prefered but I still like the product.

This months bag has a value of $39.20.  There were three full sized items this month and the rest are multiple use sizes. I’m not sure how they all go with the theme but that’s not really a concern for me. There are two items that I’m not all excited about but it’s a personal preference issue not bad products.  I can maybe limit items that I don;t like by completing the mini surveys about each one and it lets them know how I feel about the type of stuff they send out.   I’m still not super thrilled with the website changes but am learning to get around on it.  If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

Ipsy May 2015

This months theme is Jetsetter.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives by logging in to your account.

20150529_090151

There were three bags sent out this month.  I’m okay with this one.  It’s a canvas bag and square instread of the usual rectangle.

20150529_090208 20150529_090227

 

The info card as normal, doesn’t say anything about the products you get.  All that info is found on your personal page on their website.

20150529_090502 20150529_090449

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone & Bonus Lip Gloss-0.8g $13.33

This lip pencil is clear and they recommend it as a primer for your gloss.  It’s about half of a full size and while it’s been years since I’ve used a clear lip pencil I’m not against it at all.  The two gloss samples ar really dark but maybe with a light touch they can be worn.

20150529_090314

Chella Eyebrow Colour Pencil in Tantalizing Taupe-$18.00 Full Size

Surprisingly this eyebrow pencil is in the right colour for me.  The last brow product I received was too dark so I am in need of this new one.  I like the pencil form as I can get it where I need with no hassle.

20150529_090246

Klorane Smoothing And Relaxing Patches-$6.43/pouch x 2

These are little patches you place under your eye to help reduce bags and lines and make you look refreshed.  I received 2 pouches, which is nice.  I have tried a different brand I received in another box and liked those ones so I’m thinking the result will be the same here.  My hubby and kids give me odd looks while I wear them but I’m okay with that too.

20150529_090351

Luxie Beauty Tapered Blending Eye Brush 205-$12.00

I didn’t even realise anyone thought about this but this brush is vegan.  It is also animal cruelty free, which is awesome and is coated with an antibacterial solution to prevent germs.  The bristles are nice and soft and it’s good to have spare brushes.

20150529_090422

CoTZ Face Natural SPF40-10g $4.66

Yay for it actually feeling warm enough to remember to wear sunscreen!!!!  If I don’t have little samples of specific face sunscreen I never put it on.  I lather the kids like I own stock in it but for myself, unless I know I’m going to be out all day I rarely remember.  This one is slightly tinted and has a matte finish.  I think that’s genius because so many make you shiny and then you’re patting more crap on top to hide that and suddenly you like like a crazy person.

This months bag has a value of $60.85.  Wow! Another great month for them value wise. I like that there was a full sized item and the rest are multiple use sizes. I’m not sure how they all go with the theme but that’s not really a concern for me.   I’m still not super thrilled with the website changes but am learning to get around on it.  If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

Ipsy April 2015

20150420_182840 20150420_182850

The included card showcases one of the Ipsy stylists.  This month it’s Chrisspy.  These cards just tell you the theme.  Any info on the products can be found on the website under your account.

20150420_183104

Hikari Cosmetics Blush in Tango-$15.00 Full Size

This colour is described as a matte pink coral.  It’s really pink and bright but I think if I can use just a touch of it at a time I can wear it.  I like that it has no shine or shimmer at all.  That makes it seem less like a going out colour and more like an everyday one.  We’ll have to wait and see I guess.

20150420_183136

Lather Ultra Light Face Lotion-28.3g $10.50

I think I get at least one new moisturizer every month so even though they are small I never run out.  This one has lots of flower extracts in it but smells strongly of rose.  It absorbed in super quick and my skin feels nice to the touch after.  It doesn’t feel greasy or heavy on which is nice now that it’s starting to warm up.

20150420_183157 20150420_183217

The Balm Cosmetics Nude Dude Eyeshadow Single in Flirty-$3.00

This actually comes in a full palette with all the colours shown on the right side.  I think the packaging is super fun though.  The colour I got is a kind of bronzy pink shade with lots of shimmer.  I like it and might have to splurge and get the whole set.

20150420_182925

Mica Beauty Eye Primer-4g $22.48

I really want to like this.  I have a scar on one eye so my makeup on that side is always moving around and smearing oddly since my eye folds a bit different from the scar.  Beyond this being super expensive it seems too dry for me.  It doesn’t go on very easily and is not smooth at all.  I’ll have to play with this one to see if I can make it work.  There is a lot of it though, since it’s only for your eyes.

20150420_183019

Mullien & Sparrow Mini Lip & Cheek Tint-$10.00 Full Size

I expected this to be really dark but it just looks that way.  This gives just a touch of colour and a moist look on both cheeks and lips.  It has a slightly odd smell that I can’t place.  I think the packaging is cute and this is vegan as well.

20150420_182900

I forgot to post the bag!!!!  This is the best bag I have yet to receive from them.  It is larger then most and the basket weave is fabulous.  This one will not be regulated to my makeup drawer, I plan to use it all the time.

This months bag has a value of $60.98.  Wow! A third of that is the highly overpriced primer but that’s still incredible. This month has two full size items and two are half sized. For once I think all of my items actually meet the theme.   I’m still not super thrilled with the website changes but am learning to get around on it.  If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

 

 

Ipsy March 2015

Ispy is a beauty subscription that comes in a bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products. All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Floral Fantasy.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives by logging in to your account.

20150316_170658

The bag this month is probably my favorite so far.  The other side is just plain blue.  The card as always gives you the theme and nothing else.

20150316_170825

LeeAnni Eco 3 in 1 Revolution Light-0.5oz $3.75

This is a toner, serum and moisturizer in one.  It is also vegan and gluten free.  Anything that makes my mornings easier is a win for me since getting myself up and ready with one helper and one who just wants attention can be a challenge.

20150316_170807

Pixi by Petra Mesmerizing Mineral Duo in Apricot Glow-0.75g $5.00

This is a special edition just for Ipsy.  These are normally sold as a block of six.  I like the colours and it has just the right amount of shimmer.  I can’t wait to use this actually.

20150316_170851

NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipstick in Hunk-$6.00 Full Size

I was about to complain about the fact that I am so tired of dark lipstick colours coming lately and then I put this on.  It is lighter then I thought it would be and feels really smooth on my lips.  It’s not the best colour for me but still wearable.

20150316_170713

Pur-lisse Beauty Pur-delecate Gentle Soy Milk CLeanser-30mL $6.43

This is a 4-in-1 makeup remover and cleanser.  I have heard alot about this brand but this is my first product from them.  As I said earlier if I can skip a step in my routine I’m all for it.  This is supposed to be really gentle on skin and still take off even waterproof mascara so I will be giving it a go.

20150316_170915

Evelyn Iona Cosmetics Concealer-0.55g $3.44

Everyone who got this product received the same colour, Flawless, which is a touch dark for my skin.  I’m going to try to blend it with my BB cream to see if I can make it work of else it will have to be used really sparingly.  Beyond that it seems to give great coverage and there is plenty in this sample.

This months bag has a value of $24.62.  I like everything I think, mostly the eyeshadow.  It’s nice that there was a full sized item and also two multi use items.  I can never see how any of the items belong to the theme.  They have also changed up the website and review process and I’m not liking it.  It’s just harder to use and I think if you’re going to change things if should be for the better.  If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

Ipsy February 2015

I just want to say again how happy I will be once I no longer have to spell February on a regular basis……come on March!

Anyways…..Ispy is a beauty subscription that comes in a bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products. All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Ipsy Love.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives by logging in to your account.

20150216_151145

I think this months bag is super cute and I would even use it for more then just makeup.  As usual the card included simply tells you the theme and features one or more of their stylists.  All of your product info is found online.

20150216_151307

City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini-$4.99 Full Size

I am not really liking this new trend of lip products that can’t decide what they are.  This is another one of those that comes in a lip gloss tube, with a lip gloss applicator, but it is more of a thin lipstick instead.  That being said the color and lip feel is quite nice.  It has full coverage and no shine and surprisingly the colour is not neon.

20150216_151422

 

Emite Make Up Professional Eye Lash Curler-$25.00

Ugghhh……I hate eye lash curlers……they are the most useless and time wasting device ever.  There is no way in hell that I would ever pay $25.00 for one either.  This will get tossed into a drawer and promptly forgotten about until someone either asks me for one or maybe the girls can play with it when they are older.  Boooo!!

20150216_151200

Eva NYC Up All Night Volumizing Spray-30mL $3.00

I have a lot if hair but it is super fine so I am always looking for ways to poof it up when I don’t want it pulled back out of the way.  This is a rice derived spray to help with extra texture and lift.  I want to hope this will work but you really need to use a blow-dryer to get the most out of these and I honestly can’t be bothered.  Flat hair it is then.

20150216_151339

Mitchell And Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil-10mL $27.62

As you can see I didn’t remove this from the little baggie they shipped it in.  It has leaked and there is oil all over this bag.  Luckily because Ipsy did take the time to put it into a baggie, the mess is contained.  I contacted them and they are shipping my out a new one and if anything else had been damaged they would have sent me that as well.  After all that I am actually interested in trying this.  I had received a face oil in a different box and while I was originally leery of putting oil onto my face I was surprised at how quickly it absorbed and that it didn’t return me to my teenage greasy years.  This sample is a half size to the regular one so it’s a good sized sample as well and the price reflects that.  Also you need so little with a face oil that it will last a long time.

20150216_151220

ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in Cosmopolitan-3.6g $11.00

I don’t think this is a full sized blush so I’ve priced it as half sized.  I am going to have to stop complaining about not getting blush in my boxes as lately they have been coming through.  While this looks like an 80’s pink it goes on really sheer and leaves a subtle flush to your cheeks.

This month bag has a value of $71.61!!!! That’s insane for what you pay for it.  While I hate the curler, everything else is good and I love the blush.  You also get to review your items each month for points you can trade for other products.  I do have enough for a couple of the items now but am going to hold out and see if something I just need to have comes up.

If you would like to get in on the bag I’d love it if you’d use my link.  You can also visit their website by clicking here.

Ipsy January 2015

Ispy is a beauty subscription that comes in a bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products. All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Fresh Start.  All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives.

20150113_143407 20150113_143419

The bag this time is a good size and half blue, half white.  The card doesn’t list anything as you can get all info online.

20150113_143612

Hikari Cosmetics Eye Liner in Storm-$13.00 Full Size

I love this color!!!! I think a silver grey liner is fabulous and I’m so happy right now.  Even if everything else in my bag sucks I would be okay.  This is getting put into use right away.  I’ve never heard of the brand before but really don’t care.

20150113_143517

La Fresh Eco-Beauty Be Good. Good Day. Day Moisturizer-15g $11.76

Along with the standard apply after washing instructions this also says to “Exercise modestly, drink plenty of water, eat healthy meals, sleep enough hours, hug often & smile more”.  We would all be more beautiful if we remembered to do all of that.  This absorbed really nicely into my skin but I’m not overly fond of the scent.

(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm-7g $8.40

This is so close to being full sized. This is a shiny clear lip gel. It’s slightly tingly and I like the way it feels on my lips.  I can never have enough lip balms and have been getting some great ones from boxes lately.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion-8mL

Not sure of a value on this one as the site doesn’t say how bog the full size is.  That retails for $29.00 so this might be about $4 maybe?  It can be worn alone or mixed with your foundation.  The shimmer it provides is so subtle that you could definitely wear it all the time.  Another win for me.

Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow in Treasure-$2.90 Full Size

They don’t appear to sell eyeshadow singles on their website but this color is in one of their palettes.  I really like this color too!  Its a great warm bronze with tons of shimmer and yet it’s still a neutral.

This months Ipsy was a great bag for me.  The only thing I didn’t like was the smell of the moisturizer.  All the makeup was great and in colors I wear.  The value of the bag is right around $40, which is good too.  You also get to review your items on the site and get points which can be used to get other products.  After the four bags I’ve received I am almost at enough to get something and waiting one more month won’t be hard.  This one was definitely one of my best boxes yet.

Cailyn Just Mineral Eye Polish in Orchid-$15.00 Full Size

I love this!  The color is fabulous and so sparkly! This might not be an everyday eyeshadow but I want to find a way to make it so.  The fact that it’s mineral eyeshadow makes it even better.

Coolway Boost Repair Mask-1oz. $3.75

I really hope this is awesome because my hair has hit the after pregnancy stage where all my thickness has fallen out and winter has made it lackluster.  However I have waist length hair so this is about one application based on their recommended usage.  Maybe once is enough?

Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush-$6.99

I’m not sure why I have never thought to use a double sided brush.  It makes so much more sense then having two brushes out to get hijacked by a preschooler.  I received a Crown brand brush in another box and liked it so I think this will become a daily item.

NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm in Marshmallow-$4.00 Full Size

I like the color and feel of this balm.  It’s good for wearing anytime and I think it’ll provide nice softening for my lips too.  If it smelt like marshmallows that would be better though. Just sayin’.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4in1 Mascara-3mL $10.00

I don’t feel you can have to many mascaras.  It’s something I never leave the house without wearing and these sample sizes don’t last for long enough for them to go dry before I get to them.  This one is supposed to do everything you could want a mascara to do, so it might move up the queue.

For day 21 in my advent calendars I received,

Eye shadow brush and Watt’s Up!Soft Focus Highlighter For Face.  Both of these are really nice and I am happy with today’s offerings.  Sorry the pics are a bit wonky, I’ve got two sick babies and things are a bit rushed around here.
