October Ipsy Glam Bag

01

Another month, another ipsy beauty bag ❤ This month’s beauty bag theme was “Beauty Candy”. As you can tell the bag this month looks a bit like a candy bar, or jolly ranchers! ❤ As these next 6-8 months here in Canada are going to be chilling and our skin will be getting dry & rough, Ipsy has included a few things to keep us moisturized & soft!

First here, I have this hand cream by Figs & Rouge. This hand cream goes for £3.95 which is around $6 Canadian. I love this handcream it is soo soo yummy! With hints of mango, mandarin and shea butter, this hand cream smells absolutely delectable!

Next Ipsy has included this facial exfoliant by Epice which I have yet to try because I am currently obsessed with my St.Ive’s Green Tea Scrub. This exfoliant is definitely next on the list though. This 1 oz bottle only costs $4.99 and on the site you can actually get a sample size half the size for only $1.

Benefits:

  • Micro-fine polyspheres gently exfoliate removing excess dead cells and environmental debris.
  • Exfoliation helps open pores, which increases excretion of toxins.
  • Packed with emollients, humectants and barrier protectors to hydrate dry, irritated skin.
  • Smoothes skin as it cleans.

Next is something I had no idea even existed. A BB cream, FOR YOUR HAIR! How exciting is this?! This is the smaller size I received worth $4.00, the full product is 4.2 oz for $30.  “Including Acacia Collagen, Hydrolyzed Silk Protein, Silk Amino Acids, Jojoba Oil and Monoi Oil, A phenomenon in haircare…Finally, an all in one styling cream that is amazingly light, incredibly versatile and harnesses the moisturizing and protective power of Acacia Collagen™ for ultimate repair.” I’m excited to give this stuff a go! & I’ll make sure to write a full review on this new intriguing hair product!

 Next I have this super lovely Mineralized Baked Eyeshadow by Jesse’s girl in the shade “Rosemary Frost” which I think is such a lovely name for it. This shadow is rather pigmented with shine and leaves a really nice glowy feel. I would even consider using this as a highlighter! This is a full product at the price of $3.99.

Last in this months bag, I received this Be Matte Lipstick by City Color in the shade “Cappuccino”. I honestly don’t really see the Cappuccino colour for this matte lipstick, I find it’s more of a peachy, sandy colour on the lips. Either way it is a super lovely shade for this season! This is a full sized products at the price of $5.00.

E.l.f Haul <3

Image

Hello everyone! I have a decently sized e.l.f haul for you today! If you don’t know about eyeslipsface.com (e.l.f) it is “Top rated premium cosmetic & makeup products starting at just $1 and Free Shipping”. I know you can find these products at Target or Greenwalls.. ?? Which we don’t have either where I live so I just order online and its super easy! I will have all the product links and prices below for anyone who would like!

So starting with “eyes”, my personal favorite which I re-ordered is the eyeshadow primer i’ve mentioned it in a few of my videos on youtube and I honestly can’t see myself buying another eyeshadow primer. This 100% mineral eyeshadow primer is only $3.00 and comes in two different shades, I have “sheer” and it also comes in “blush”. This product works super great at keeping my eyeshadow on the entire day without any creasing. If I don’t apply this before my eye makeup my eyeshadow will crease within an hour, oily oily!

The “Studio Cream Eyeliner” hasn’t been very good to me however I do need to play with it more, the purple shade I ordered was suppose to be kind of bright and fun but it turned out to be a dark purple/brown colour so.. I don’t see myself using it much. $3.00

The “Studio Lash Extending Mascara” is just your basic mascara if you can’t find your main mascara lying around. The wand is pretty flimsy but you can gain extended lashes if you apply a couple layers, which I do anyways but this wand is a bit too flimsy for my liking. I will be holding onto it for emergencies though 😛 $3.00

My second favorite is the “Studio Eyebrow Kit” I got this in the darkest shade “dark” the brush it comes with the little hairs fall out and into the product and get all up in there, so I advise using your own brush you already have. If you don’t already have one, elf have lots of cheap brushes! This little kit was only $3.00, I only really use the one dark colour side.. not sure what i’ll end up doing with the other 😛

Next to keep my eyebrows in place I have the “Studio Eyebrow Treat & Tame” to just hold my brows down where I want them so I don’t have any flyaways! $3.00

For lips I only tried one product this time because I haven’t really been into wearing anything on my lips this winter for they are dry and sad 😦 Another sad note is i’m not huge on lip gloss’s because I always find them to be sticky and annoying but I thought I would give this a go anyways because it did mention something about being silky and being infused with coconut oil, however … this has got to be the stickiest lip gloss i’ve ever put on my lips. This will never touch my lips again.. I would even feel bad giving it as a present which I do with products sometimes that i’ve only used once. This however! NEVER AGAIN. I don’t know why you would want the link after that little rant but here it is for who ever wants to take a look, luckily this product was only  $3.00 as well.

Next for “face” I’ve been very curious about this “Acne Fighting Foundation” since my last purchase before this one. It’s a lot better than the “Flawless Finish Foundation” and also the “Tinted Moisturizer” by elf. This foundation is wearable with a powder finish, without the powder finish it stays feeling a bit moist on your skin. This foundation is $6.00 so this is one of the more pricey items on eyeslipsface.com, I chose two shades because I have the Ivory in the flawless finish foundation but I wanted to see which colour was truly best for my skin tone. I haven’t even tried the ivory one because the porcelain one works really well with my skin. I also picked up the elf studio “Translucent Matifying Powder” in the shade “translucent”, I find this powder to not be completely translucent and does indeed give a coloured powder application to your skin. I still use it here and there though, not translucent though. Only $3.00 so I really can’t complain 😛

For brushes I just chose a couple that I already had just for backup because my stipple brush has fallen apart of couple times and it might be time to retire it. I really recommend checking out their brushes. Their essential brushes (eyeshadow brush & blending eye brush) are $1 each and their studio brushes (stipple brush above) are $3 each. Great for beginners or people who don’t want to spend $30 a brush. The three brushes above are my three favorites.. hence why I re-bought!

I’ve noticed its time to get a proper brush shampoo because hand soap just aint doin it anymore for my brushes. So I picked up this brush shampoo for $3.00. “The Makeup Mist & Set” ($3.00) I’ve tried before and I found it smelt a bit funny after applying to your skin (probably the cucumber) However i’m pretty sure they accidentally threw this in the bag because I don’t know why I would have re-ordered this product when I already have a practically full bottle of it already! I have read good reviews about this product though so i’m going to give it another go!

Last I just chose a simple shiny overcoat nail polish from the “Essentials Nail Polish” line. They have soo many colours and they work well for a drugstore nail polishes, they stay on just as long as any other cheap nail polish and the variety is awesome! This one is in the shade “Twinkle Twilight” I have about 8 different colours from the essentail line! These run at $2.00.

I’m always loosing my nail files so I picked up a pack of three (image only shows two.. because what do you know, I lost one already!) For a pack of 3 is only $1 so you really can’t go wrong with any of these products i’ve shown you today! I hope you enjoyed this post and it’s helped you in some way!
