June Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

I got my June Glam Bag from Ipsy yesterday and I thought today would be the perfect day to go over it. This month’s theme is Ipsy Volume Up. It’s all about being yourself and not being afraid to speak up. I think the bag is adorable, it’s the perfect size to stick in your handbag if you are looking for a smaller makeup bag or pencil case, etc. It has a set of lips on it and it’s perfect for the theme.

JNGB1

So the first product I’m going to talk about is a couple of facemasks from BioRepublic Skincare. I got two sheet masks, one is a green tea detox with green tea extract and vitamin E. It’s supposed to boost anti-oxidants and leave you with clean, supple and refined skin. The other is an aloe rescue with aloe vera juice and vitamin E. And it’s supposed to provide immediate hydration and leave you with healthy, revitalized and lush skin. This time of year people spend a lot of time in the sun and after a day in the sun this would be perfect. I love facemasks, so I’m excited to try these.

JNGB2

Next is a Luna by Luna eyeshadow in Jace. This is dusty peach color and it’s really pretty. I don’t typically wear a lot of colors like this, but I’m sure I can make it work.

JNGB3

The next product, from the Balm is the Balm Springs blush in the shade In Full Swing. This is a really light pinky blush and it’s perfect for summer. I can’t wait to wear it, the Balm blushes are great.

JNGB4

The second to last product is one of my favorites and it’s a NYX Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé in Plush. I love NYX, I think all of their products are great. This is a really pretty pink, I’ll probably use it just for lips, the fact that it’s whipped makes it nice to wear and to me it smells like vanilla frosting, which I love. I would definitely recommend anything NYX.

JNGB7

JNGB5

And the last product is a nail polish from Trust Fund Beauty and it’s in the shade Game Changer. I really like the Trust Fund Beauty nail polishes. The formulation is really nice and they have good staying power. I love the color of this one it’s bright and perfect for summer. I can’t wait to put it on my nails.

JNGB6

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your June Glam Bag let me know and if not let me know what you got in yours.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

May Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I received my May Glam Bag from Ipsy and figured today was the perfect day to talk about it. This month’s theme is Ipsy Summer Fridays. The theme really carries through. The bag is covered in ice cream and popsicles. It’s also plastic so that makes it perfect to take to the beach or the pool. When I pulled it out of the envelope it reminded me of how pool floaties smell which made me think of summer.

MYGB1

So the first product is Urban Decay Afterglow 8-hour powder highlighter in Sin. I’ve mentioned how much I love Urban Decay and this highlighter is amazing. It’s a gorgeous champagne shade and it did last most of the day, which I loved.

MYGB2

Next we have a Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense eyeshadow duo in Electric. When I opened this I was excited because I absolutely love these colors. I wore this on Saturday and really liked it. I used the rosey one as the base and put a little bit of the gold on top and after I blended it it was so pretty. It is really pigmented and I definitely recommend it.

MYGB3

Sticking with eyes, we have the Pixi by Petra Endless Silky eye pen in BlackNoir. Pixi is a brand I really like, their skincare is fantastic, but I hadn’t tried any of their makeup. Let me tell you, I will be going to their website and browsing through the makeup. Like I’ve said before, I’m always looking to try new eyeliner, doesn’t matter how many I have. And I really like this one. It was long lasting, it didn’t smudge, and it was incredibly smooth putting it on. It really lives up to it’s silky name.

MYGB4

Going on to lips, the next product is a Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key. I’m so in love with this liquid lipstick. Not only is the color fantastic, but it smells like cake batter. I mean, if it didn’t smell like cake I would still love it because it’s lightweight and doesn’t feel like it’s taking all of the moisture out of my lips. But the fact that it does makes it a million times more fun and I will definitely be purchasing more colors in the future.

MYGB5

And lastly, we have Beauty and Pin-Ups Fearless Hair Rescue Masque. I haven’t used this yet, but it smells really good. I love hair masks, thankfully my hair is really healthy and always has been, but being able to give it that extra love and softness is always nice. So I can’t wait to try this.

MYGB6

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your May Glam Bags let me know, and if not I’d love to know what you got in yours.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

April favorites

Hi everyone,

As it is the last week of April I thought it was time to do my April favorites. I think I have a fun mix this month, so let’s get into it. Starting with beauty, the first thing is from my April Glam Bag from Ipsy, if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below, and it’s the bag itself. As far as design goes, this is the most fun bag they’ve done this month. It’s a red-orange ticket and I think it’s so perfect for this time of year. Fair season is coming up and if you’re like me and don’t really go to a lot of fairs this is perfect for spring/ summer. It will bring an element of color and fun to any outfit.

APF1

Next we have the EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner with a brush tip. I’m always looking for a good eyeliner, especially liquid liner and I have found one in this. It’s quick drying, smudge proof, it lasts all day and it’s super easy to take off at the end of the day. For anyone looking, I would 100% recommend this.

AGB4

And lastly from my April Glam Bag is the Meg twin nail polish in Lovey Dovey. I’ve worn both the colors, I’m actually wearing the nudey one right now. I really like the formulation, the color comes through nicely and the staying power is great.

AGB5

Moving on, we have the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip kit. I will also link that post down below if you haven’t read it. I really like everything that’s in that kit. I have worn the Buxom Full on Lip Cream since then and I did like it. It smells amazing, and it lasts on your lips for a while. If I would change anything, I think it would be the color. This one is in White Russian, and I think it was a little bit light for me personally, but I would order any of their other colors.

SH1

My next favorite is Easter. This year when my family got together we had a pretty chill day, watching baseball and playing games. But it was really nice and relaxing. And this is what I wore.

APF2

And speaking of baseball, that’s my next favorite. Baseball season is here, we’re almost through the first month of the season. My Seattle Mariners are off to a slightly slow start, they’re 8-13 right now which isn’t too horrible, very easy to get to .500 from here. And they’re in the middle of a road trip right now. I think this is one of the most talented teams we’ve had in a little while. Everyone is wanting to hit, having good at bats, defense is great, and the thing that has excited me the most is how many guys we have stealing bases. For the last five years at least I’ve been saying that we need to steal more bases and it’s finally happening. For the most part they have really adopted the Whatever It Takes mentality and I’m excited about the rest of the season.

APF3

Next up we have a food favorite. The other day I was looking through an ad that came in the mail for Fred Meyer or QFC and it was advertising a new flavor of the Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces so I thought I would try them because I hadn’t yet and I love pretzels. When I got there they were sold out of the new flavors so I ended up buying the jalapeno ones and they were so good. When I opened the bag it instantly reminded me of the Tim’s Cascade chips, which I absolutely love. And they don’t hold back on the jalapeno flavor. Now I definitely want to try all of the other flavors.

And my last April favorite is The Bee Gees. Every couple of years the Grammy’s does a salute to a person or group who has been making music for a long time, they have other artists perform the honorees songs and at the end that person or group comes up and does a couple of their own songs. That I know of they’ve done Stevie Wonder and The Beatles, who I love very much, and this year it was The Bee Gees. I was pleasantly surprised at how many of their songs I knew, and since then I’ve been listening to their music regularly. And I very much want to sing with Barry Gibb, he’s amazing. If you’re not familiar with their music look them up on YouTube or iTunes, they’ve got some great songs.

That about wraps it up for this post. If we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not let me know what you’ve been loving this month.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you’ve had a great April :).

April Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my April Glam Bag, so I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. This month’s theme is Ipsy Side Show. I think when it comes to bag designs, this one is the most fun yet. It’s a red-orange bag in the shape of a ticket and I think that’s genius. Fair season is coming up so it’s the perfect bag for something like that.

AGB1

So starting with hair, the first thing in this bag is from Theorie. It’s a Marula Oil transforming hair serum. It’s supposed to moisturize, smooth, protect and repair hair. I usually don’t put oils in my hair, but I’m interested to try it out.

AGB2

Next we have a Hikari cream pigment eye shadow in the shade Honey Dew. This is such a gorgeous color. I swatched it yesterday and I think it’s going to be so pretty on.

AGB3

Moving on, from EM Cosmetics, we have their Illustrative Eyeliner with a brush tip. I’m actually wearing this today and I think it’s great. I’m always on the hunt for a good eyeliner and this one definitely gets an A from me.

AGB4

Going next to nail polish, from Meg, it’s their Twin nail polish in Lovey Dovey. The color on the left is gray with a purple undertone and it’s really pretty. I’ve got it on and I like it a lot. The formulation is really nice. The color on the right actually reminds me of how my coffee looks after I’ve added creamer. But I’m always looking for a good nude toned nail polish.

AGB5

And the last thing in this months bag is a brush. But not just any brush. It’s the Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Brush. When I was growing up Lisa Frank was really big, all of my friends were decked out with notebooks, folders, stickers, the whole lot. I had a couple of things myself, so when I saw this brush it was a total childhood flashback. The whole design is great, the rose gold on the handle, the pink center of the brush itself. And on top of all that, this is now definitely one of the softest brushes I own.

AGB6

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys got any of the same products in your April Glam Bags let me know and if not, let me know what you got in yours.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

March favorites

Hi everyone,

As it is the end of March, I thought today would be the perfect time to do my March favorites.  I think I have a good mix this month, so lets get into it. Starting off with beauty, I have a couple of things from my March Glam Bag. If you haven’t read that post I’ll leave a link to it below. So, the first thing is actually the bag itself. I like this one the most out of the ones I’ve gotten so far. The design is super cute and the space is incredible. Because of the space, I started using it as a makeup bag in my new handbag.

MF1

My next favorite from the Glam Bag is the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Rosé.  I already have two of these in different shades, Fly and OG, and I love them. I want one of every shade they make.

MGB4

And my last Glam Bag favorite is the Marc Anthony True Professional aloe vera and jasmine deep repairing conditioning treatment. This really does do what it says it will. After using it my hair felt so soft and it was less frizzy. Plus it smells incredible. So I will definitely be ordering another one of these.

MGB7

Sticking with beauty, my next favorite is an eyeshadow palette. It’s the Everyday Smoky palette from e.l.f. There is a mix of shimmery and matte shade, every color is so pretty and the color payoff is amazing. A lot of the palettes I have are mostly warm tones, so it’s nice to have another one that is cool tones. I highly recommend this and any of the e.l.f. eyeshadow palettes.

MF2

And the last beauty favorite is skincare related. I don’t have a picture, but it’s the e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream with Purified Water, Cucumber and Green Tea. I got a sample of this when I received my eyeshadow palette and fell in love. I do occasionally have puffiness and  bags under my eyes and this put the moisture back into my skin and made them disappear like a good eye cream should. So I’ve placed an order for a full sized version.

Moving on to fashion, recently I’ve been looking for a new handbag. Something not too spendy, but not cheap and will fall apart if it touches the ground and I definitely found that. This bag is from H&M and I’m so in love with it. It has two handles at the top plus a shoulder strap, which is detachable, the main compartment in the middle, plus one large compartment on each side that has a zipper. Another smaller zip pocket on the inside and two more small pockets. Four gold studs on the bottom and a black lining along the outer edge. I personally love all of the gold hardware and it doesn’t clash with the color which I think officially is Light Taupe. But I know you can also get this bag in black and white.

MF3

From fashion we go to books where we have How to Drag Race by Kevin McKenna. This book is honestly a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to break in to drag racing or needs help with the set up and tuning of their car. There is a ton of great information in there and I seriously recommend buying a copy, I bought mine on Amazon.

MF4

My second to last favorite is a song, and it’s Hangin’ Around by Edgar Winter. I came across this song by chance on Pandora and I thought it was great. I know a few Edgar Winter songs, but had never heard this one and I’m glad that I did. If you’re not familiar with it definitely look it up on YouTube. It’s a fun song.

And my last favorite for this month is a TV show. Dancing with the Stars to be exact. This season is season 24 and I’ve been watching since the beginning. There is a lot of talent this season and a little bit of crazy. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know on Monday nights there’s some DWTS tweets happening. But this season my favorite couples are Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko and David Ross and Lindsay Arnold. If any of you guys are watching this season let me know who you’re rooting for and what you think of the season so far.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have any of the same favorites as me let me know and if not let me know what your favorites were for this month.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you’re having a good March :).

March Glam Bag unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I got my March Glam Bag from Ipsy, so I thought now would be the perfect time to talk about it. This month’s theme is Ipsy Tres Jolie. And you can definitely see that in all aspects of the March bag. The bag itself I really like, it’s a light pink with a black pattern and a rose gold zipper. It’s definitely my favorite so far. Another thing I like about this bag is it’s a fold over so you can maximize the space you have.

MGB1

MGB2

So the first product I want to talk about is the blush. This is from Dirty Little Secret and it’s in Kitty Pink. It’s a peachy shade and I think it will be a great blush for spring and summer. Based on the swatch I did I think it’s going to be great with most looks so I’m excited to try it out.

MGB3

Next we have a lipstick from one of my all-time favorite brands, Tarte. It’s a Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Rosé. This is matte and quick drying so it’s the best of both worlds and it doesn’t feel heavy or like it’s taking all the moisture out of your lips like some matte liquid lipsticks can. I actually have this lip paint in two other colors, Fly and OG, but I hadn’t tried this one yet so I was happy to see this.

MGB4

MGB5

Next up from First Aid Beauty is their Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer. I haven’t ever tried anything from First Aid Beauty, but I’ve heard good things about them. And I just ran out of my regular face moisturizer, so it’s perfect timing.

MGB6

The second to last item we have is hair care related. It’s from Marc Anthony True Professional and it’s an aloe vera and jasmine deep repairing conditioning treatment. Let me tell you, this honestly smells incredible. This is supposed to correct, soften, detangle and create healthy frizz free hair that has shine and be color safe. My only hair problem is because I have such thick hair it can be a little frizzy at times. But my Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner usually tame that pretty well. So I’m interested to see if this can give extra help in taming the mane if you will.

MGB7

And the last thing is a makeup brush. Specifically the Luxe Pro Blending Brush from Skone Cosmetics. Skone Cosmetics isn’t a brand I’ve heard of before, but I feel that you can never have too many makeup brushes.

MGB8

That about wraps it up for this post. If any of you guys got the same products in your March Glam Bags let me know and if not let me know what you got in yours.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
