ipsy_02This month was this really pretty woven bag ^.^ My first product here is this blush by HIKARI in the shade “Tango Blush”  I have two lipsticks by this brand which i have really been loving, so i am excited to try this blush out! I highly recommend checking out the HIKARI products. http://www.hikaricosmetics.com/shop/blush/ipsy_03ipsy_04

 Next is this eyeshadow sample from the Nude Dude eyeshadow palette by the BALM. I have this in the shade “Flirty”. I really love this eyeshadow, it’s this really beautiful brown – purple shade that shimmers with a gold highlight. I would really love to purchase the full palette (when i have money waah ;-;).

Last is this eyelid primer by MICA Beauty. I’ve used this once and it seemed to keep my eyeshadow from creasing, so i will be using this more for sure! This and the elf primer are the only eyelid primers that have actually worked on my eyelids not allowing creasing makeup ^.^

☽ January Ipsy Bag Review ☾

bag

Hello beautiful people, today I have my review on the January Ipsy glam bag I received on Monday! Ipsy is a monthly beauty bag subscription $10 a month for U.S.A residents and $16.75 Canadian residents with shipping costs.

You can check their site here:

http://www.ipsy.com/r/2kho?sid=ipsypoints&cid=general

Overall I am super happy with the products I received and am going to get some decent usage out of them, shall we?

eco_01

This eco-beauty by La Fresh Group is a highly natural, biodegradable, cruelty free moisturizer created in California. Using collagen-producing peptides, super-hydrating hyaluronic acid, cucumber, aloe, vitamin B, C & E and an anti-aging botanical complex including maqui berry, licorice root, ginko biloba leaf, grape seed & hickory bark to help bring back fresher happier skin, helping with fine wrinkles on your face!

I’ve actually only tried this on my hands incase my skin reacts to it and it seems to be fine so I am bring it to Mexico with me! Being a biodregradable formula making it safer for the ocean (and my skin!) being cruelty free and highly natural are total bonuses! All around I think i’ll be repurchasing this depending how it works throughout my trip.

eco_02

(Sample Size)

This eco-beauty moisturizer retails for $40 and can be found here:

picifica_01

Next I received this Pacifica eyeshadow in the shade “Ethereal”. It isn’t very pigmented which is a bummer because it is quite pretty. A fellow blogger did mention using a setting spray on her brush helped strengthen the pigment. ( I don’t have a setting spray at the moment though!)

picifica_02

picaifica_03

Looking at the website i’m assuming this is a sample size. One shade from one of the palette’s they have here:

bella_01

Next eyeshadow I have is this loose powder by bellapierre cosmetics in the shade “Whesek” <– haha nooo idea how that is suppose to be promounced. This eyeshadow blends really nicely and leaves an iridescent finish. If i counted properly there is 56 shades which is craazaaay.bella_02bella_03This product retails for $14.99 and this is a full product. You can find it here: http://www.bellapierrecosmetics.ca/shop/index.php/mineral-makeup/eyes/shimmer-powders-1.html

IPSY_02

Next I have this lip conditioning treating which is smposively “lip enhancing” by Jouer.

I was excited to pull this out of my ipsy bag because I have seen other bloggers rave about it, however. . I was highly disappointed when it was just a thick, perfumey super glossy formula that my hair was seemingly interested in being friends with, ending up dragging the stickiness across my face which was a no-no.

IPSY_03

This is a half sample sized product. Full product retails for $16.00 You can find it here:

https://jouercosmetics.com/shop-products/lips/lip-enhancer

brush

Last was this All Over Brush by Elizabeth Mott, i’m excited to have a cute brush in my collection! I’m sure i’ll get some great use out of this. Seems well made and very soft ^.^

This product is full size and retails for $9.99 and can be found here:

http://www.elizabethmott.com/shop/all-over-shadow-brush/?src=gr

IPSY_01The two full products I received in this bag total up to $24.00. Ontop of that I got three great samples and a cute makeup bag ^.^ I say well worth it! What did you get in your Ipsy bag this month?

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!

05

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.

06

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!

07

 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.

04

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.

About a month ago I was contacted by a very lovely employee of the LookBookStore.com, which is an online fashion store. Vanessa invited me to be apart of their “blogger program” to help promote a couple of their items. She was nice enough to send me two items for free to enjoy and review for you lovely birds out there! ❤

http://www.lookbookstore.co/

Seeing as the weather has taken a huge turn and we await the arrival of the snow, the items I chose were to keep warm, but stay fashionable at the same time 😉 . My first item is this “oversized” knit cardigan, now.. It COULD be oversized if I was 5’5″, being 5’8″ though, this is more just a medium-long cardigan. The sleeves don’t reach my wrists which doesn’t really bother me, the zipper is a bit on the cheap side, other than that i love this knit cardigan! ❤ I think it would be even more awesome if it had a hood! Just sayin ❤

KNIT_SWEATER

This knit cardigan costs $42.00. You can find it here!

cardigan

My next was my favorite thing on the entire website! Which is this WICKED “Black Faux Fur Coat”. I’m super excited to wear this for halloween, and throughout the winter! This actually keeps me pretty dang warm and fits me PERFECT. This retails at $86.00 & is sooo soft yet fierce!

You can purchase the coat here!:
