Last but definitely not least, Ipsy!
Ipsy is an amazing subscription for
first timers. The price is reasonable,
the products are excellent and you
get to customize your profile and rate
the items you get which makes it easier for
them to pick items that you will love.
SLMissGlam – B36 Tapered Highlight Brush
I’m sure I have mentioned it many times but I
have a heap of brushes! The nice thing about that
is that I don’t have to clean the same 3 brushes as
I have so many to work with. Looking forward to
this one for highlighting!
Manna Kadar Cosmetics – HD Perfecting Powder
This is a mattifying powder that claims to give that
ultimate finished look. I like these kinds of products
as they set your makeup nicely and since it is colourless,
it works on many different skin tones! A win-win all around.
Bang Beauty – Lip Gloss in “Spice”
Whenever I get any lip products, I try them out
right away! I was excited to try this one as its really
nice pinky-nude which is perfect for an every day work look.
Best of all, it isn’t sticky and the shine factor is amazing!
Tarte – Deluxe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in “Feisty”
I find blush is a hit or miss with me. I have a very pale complexion
so I need something that is slightly subtle and doesn’t make me look
too rosy or clown like. This product claims to be crazy hydrating
and helps your skin hold onto moisture which is perfect for someone
with dry skin like myself. I look forward to seeing if this will become
a new favourite of mine or if I will go back to my tried and true,
Seraphine Botanicals Happy Hibiscus Blush.
Soroci – Morning Calming Cream
When I saw that I would be getting a moisturizer, I was
jumping for joy. That being said, when I received my Glam Bag,
the moisturizer was so small that I’ll be lucky if I can get more than
two uses out of it. I get that this subscription is sample size but this just
really disappointed me considering moisturizer is a must have of mine.
All in all, I think I did pretty good this month and am
looking forward to the Christmas/holiday themed items
to come in December! Until next time…

Good Afternoon All!
Here is my second subscription to arrive.
The thing about Topbox is that you never
know what you are going to get until it arrives.
As previously mentioned, I have been on the fence
about unsubscribing but because I don’t know what
I am getting each time, I find the anticipation more favourable.
That being said, let’s get into it!
Laritzy Cosmetics – Silicone Makeup Blender – Retail Price: $14.00
I have had the opportunity to work with a few different styles of
beauty blenders. I don’t really find they work well for me but maybe
I just haven’t given them a real chance. I like the idea that this one is
silicone as it makes it easier to clean and you actually use less product
because the sponge ones absorb more.
First Aid Beauty – 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask – Retail Price: $38
I’m not really familiar with this brand but I do love masks.
The price alone says to me that this has got to be a great product.
It claims to helps perfect the appearance of the skin in five targeted
ways: nourish, calm, firm, plump and refine in just 10 minutes.
Morgan Taylor – Professional Nail Lacquer – Retail Price: $15.83
Another brand I’m not familiar with but am excited to try. I have such
a large variety of nail polish’s and am actually never bothered when I
receive more as they are often all in various different shades. I am loving
this holiday feeling shimmer! Great for my Christmas party coming up at
Professional Sebastian – Shaper Plus Extra Hold Hairspray – Retail Price: $15.28
I use to work in hair salons for quite a few years back
in high school and during college. Some of the salons actually
carried a wide variety of Sebastian hair products which I had the
opportunity to sample from time to time. I look forward to using this
hairspray again as its been such a long time!
Overall, I am very happy with this haul!
Stay tuned for Ipsy next!

Good Afternoon All!
Here we are with the November edition of Boxycharm
and the first makeup subscription of the month so far!
Let’s dive in!
Luxie Beauty – Quad Eye Travel Set – Retail Price: $32.00
Take your eye game on the go with this travel set created with
hand crafted synthetic brushes. I like the convenience factor of
these as I now own probably around 35 different brushes.
The more, the merrier!
Cover FX – Illuminating Setting Spray – Retail Price: $31.00
I had actually never used setting spray until I got my monthly
subscriptions. This is the second one I have received from Boxycharm
and there have been rave reviews to its lasting abilities. Looking forward
to trying it out!
Winkylux – Kitten Palette – Retail Price: $25.00
Although I don’t use palettes often, Boxycharm
has given me about 4 different types over the past few months
to experiment with. I wear glasses 97% of the time so I find that
the awesome dramatic outcomes most girls have don’t seem to be
as noticeable with my glasses on. Perhaps I need to get more bold!
Laqa & Co. – Cloud Lips in “Storm” – Retail Price: $17.00
I’ll be honest and say that I do check sites to sneek a peek at
what is to come in the Boxycharm subscriptions. That being said,
I had no idea I would be receiving this lip product. The colour is
like a berry wine red and I look forward to seeing its
mattifying lasting power.
KNC Beauty – Collagen Lip Masks – Retail Price: $15.00
Of all the products I received, I am most excited to try this one.
This too, I did not know would be arriving and anything to do
with lips is a big plus in my books. Its not only your skin and hair
that need some treatments but the luscious lippies too!
Overall I am very happy with this months Boxycharm.
Looking forward to see if Ipsy and Topbox can top this one!
