Ipsy January Review!

Just a few days ago I received my third Ipsy Glam Bag in the mail! I was really excited for this one, because the sneak peeks looked like a lot of skin/hair care, which I really enjoy. Here’s everything I got…

Isn’t that bag cute?

Alright, here’s each one!

1. Soy Tri-Wheat Leave in Conditioner

I’m always on the lookout for hair care solutions, since lately my hair has become a little blah. This stuff is pretty good I must say. All you do is spritz about 5 times in towel-dried hair, and then dry as usual. It smells yummy, like a beach cantina, and left my hair nice and smooth. I wouldn’t trade it for my Rich Premier honey mask, but it’s a nice pick me up between heavy conditioning!

2. Willa On the Go Cleansing Wipes

I’ve only had the chance to use these once, but they seem great! The wipes smells softly of lavender, and are really gentle on the skin. I used one to remove my eye makeup, and it did so without burning or irritating my eyes at all. Big plus!

3. Mica Cosmetics Lip Balm

I’m not sure what the color name for this is, but it’s sort of a mauve, dusky rose. The color looks lot more pink in the picture, but you get the idea. It’s texture and packaging remind me of Em Cosmetic’s pillow plush balm. Although a quite pretty color, mauves make me look old 😦

4. Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Penny

When I first saw this in my Ipsy Glam Room, I thought it was an eyeshadow…nope! It’s an eyeliner actually, with a pretty interesting color, I think. As you can see the color is just like a penny. I think it looks nice on my eyes but would really pop on green eyes too.

5. Nourish Organic Face Lotion

I was expecting this argan oil and rosewater moisturizer to be a little heavy on my skin, but it’s actually the opposite! This peach colored cream is really light and refreshing, and smells divine. This would be a great Summer moisturizer since it’s so light.

6. Beauty Blender and Cleaner

IPSY Glam Box November & December Highlights!

Long time no blog eh? I know, I know. I’m muy perezosa.

In honor of my favorite (and first) subscription box, I’ll be showcasing some of my faves from the last two months bags! If you would like to know more about Ipsy, check out my first post.

First we have the Galaxy Chic eyeshadow sample in Eclipse.

I was kind of afraid to even try it because of the intense color, but it’s really pretty! The color payoff is a subtle amethyst color, and it pairs great with neutrals.

Next is the Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Hot Damn!

New.Favorite.Red.Lip. It’s hard to find good shades of red since I’m so fair, but this works very well on my skin tone. Honestly, I believe it could look good on warm and cool tones alike!

Be a Bombshell The One Stick in Girl Crush

I’d never heard of this brand before Ipsy, but it’s starting to grow on me! This stick claims to work as an eyeshadow, blush, and lip color. I tried it as all but I prefer using it just as a cheek color. Still, the color is very cute and dainty, and this full size stick will last me a long time!

English Laundry Fragrance Samples

I’m not sure what the scents are called, but I quite like them! The name “English Laundry”, even sounds cozy and comfy! The scents remind me of a pleasant Spring day…(whatever a pleasant Spring day smells like ._.)

Lastly~ … Em Cosmetics Sheer Lip Stick in Violacious

Another purple thing they freaked me out with. But I was again, happy with how it actually looks on me. It’s buildable, so I’m able to keep it sheer. It’s actually quite flattering with fair skin and red hair, and I got a lot of complements ^_^ Thanks Ipsy!

So that’s my favorites from these last glam bags! If you liked this post, I might make more for my up-and-coming bags! If you would like to subscribe to Ipsy, please use my referral link! By referring people, you get points to use towards extra items! Ipsy Subscribe Link

Ipsy – My New Love

‘Ello everyone, hope you’re all excited for Hump Day tomorrow! Tonight I just wanted to share a little tidbit of what I’ve been up to.

One Word. IPSY

If you don’t know, Ipsy is a website created by Michelle Phan, the lovely and talented beauty “guru” on Youtube. On Ipsy, you can post your makeup looks and get feedback, browse around at other looks, make friends and all that jolly-good stuff.

And also….. Ipsy has a subscription box called the “Ipsy Glam Bag”! For  $10 every month you get a cute little bag filled with 4-5 awesome items (that regularly would cost more than $10 each ._.). When you sign up, you take a survey on your favorite items, your style and preferences, and your personal features so the Ipsy stylists can come up with the best products to give everyone.

I became a member Sunday I believe? It’s verrrrrry popular so you have to be on a wait list for a bit, but as soon as a slot opens up you’re in.

I know a lot of you are into the subscription box thing, and I would highly recommend trying this one out. Based on what the previous items have been, I expect greatness for when I get my first box.

If you’d like to be a doll and become a member, please use this link right here and let them know I referred you. *for each referral you get points which you can redeem for free products* Doesn’t hurt to try right?

And that’s my thoughts on Ipsy. Go. Join. Find me and check out my little baby profile. And as always, have a great night and stay classy! 😀
