So much fun stuff….

Lets get reviewing, shall we?

BITE Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Kimchi

This is bright, but actually looks really good on! It’s the perfect bold color for spring time and summer and will look great with a tan and white teeth. This lipstick also a great formula It feels like  butter sliding on, and it has staying power. It’s a semi matte formula that does not dry your lips out at all. (Also- How cute is the presentation? I love that little bullet!)

Tarte Lip Crayon in Latergram

I really like this color, a great neutral mauve, which is the PERFECT “my lips but better” color for me. The formula is great, its a matte, but is not drying. The only issue that I have so far is that because of the sample size, it goes on more like a liner than a lip crayon. But for the amazing color payout, I think I’ll deal.

Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial

I don’t know if I would call this a facial, more like a very thick night cream. It works well as a night cream and my skin still feels very moisturized and super soft when I wake up in the morning. I’m not sure if I would seek this out for future purchase because of the high price point ($48.00) and the similar products out there for a lesser price. I did enjoy using this product though, and will use it ’till the last drop.

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

I like that this product stems from the inspiration of raw beauty. It come very close to its roots by not using parabens, sulfates, silicone or artificial colors or fragrances. It has an argon oil base, that I really appreciate, because that’s a product I use on my hair every single day.  This hair mask will definitely get used. The sample is big enough to probably get a few uses out of it for me, but for someone with extremely thick hair, there might only be one or two.

Origins Maskimizer + Drink Up and Clear Improvement Masks

I don’t use masks on a regular basis, though I probably should. Anything that will help improve the outcome of a mask is appreciated and will get used. I really like the Origins company and what it does for the planet, which includes planting over 500,000 trees globally, so if these masks work well, I can see my self purchasing one of them in the near future.

Atelier Cologne- Orange Sanguine

This is one perfume sample that I will be using! If you have read this blog in the past, you know that I don’t really like perfume samples because I never like the smells, as they are often too rich for me. This is a perfect, subtly fruity scent, and the starting price point of $25 is not bad. I don’t usually buy full size perfumes because I change my mind often, and a small size at an affordable price works in their favor. The bonus with this product was the beautiful information/ post card that came packaged in a wax envelope. The whole presentation was beautiful, and I’m looking forward to wearing the perfume soon.

Does anyone else get this box? What did you guys think?

Natalie’s May Ipsy Bag review

The Bag

May Ipsy glam Bag

I am on the fence on this bag. I like the idea of it but not necessarily the design I got. I am not a huge fan of the color purple so that’s the main reason. I will definitely use this bag. The size is comparable to other bags we have received but nothing out of the ordinary.

Smashbox X Rated Mascara

2016-05-16 06.54.05
ALL Smashbox mascaras are amazing. This one is no
exception. The brush was a bit interesting. I actually stopped to look at it in detail before
applying the product because it was such an odd shape. It applied well and I was able to also use it on my lower lashes with no product hitting my cheeks or under eye area. I really like this mascara and will definitely use it.

Hikari Cosmetics Shimmer Bronzer

2016-05-16 06.55.26

 I adore Hikari products! I got the blush in my Ipsy bag a few months ago and it is now one of my go to products when I want a bright pink blush with great pigmentation. This product was no exception. I applied this product this morning for a general overall flush effect and it worked beautifully. The four colors in the compact blend well together and give a beautiful pink/brown color. There are little sparkles in one corner and that adds a bit of shimmer to the overall effect which I love. I highly recommend this product and Hikari products in general. Love it!

INSPR Eye Fluff Brush

I used this today to apply my shadow in the crease. It worked really
well and applied the product evenly. I can always use a good crease brush and this is a perfect addition to my collection. The bristles are soft and pick up a decent amount of product with just one swipe.

Soo AE 3 Collagen Essence Sheet Mask Set

I am giving this away because I honestly won’t
use it. I will most likely try to trade it with someone for something I will actually use and if not, will give it away as a gift. I know Ipsy is always trying to promote new partners but seriously? I won’t use this. Never have and probably never will. Stop sending me stuff I specifically say I will not use, please. UGH.

Epice Hydrating Mask

Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 12.09.08 PM

Yet another product I will not use. I will try to trade it to someone for something better. I am frustrated with this month’s selections as this is the second item I will not be using/have no use for. Yes, it’s only $10 a month for this stuff but I want to get things I will actually use and not throw/give away. What a disappointment
