Ipsy Glam Bag ~ July Edition ~

Good afternoon all!
This month’s theme is “Lazy Summer Days.”
The bag is this awesome shiny aqua pouch
that brings all of the 90’s feels.

FEEL – Restoring Warming Clay Mask
You can actually feel the warmth from this mask
by simply holding the packaging in your hand.
This mask is infused with white charcoal powder
which warms up upon contact to open up pores
and clear out all the gunk that’s hiding in them.
I think I will save this bad boy for a cool fall day.

MANNA KADAR COSMETICS – Flawless Finish Dual Powder
This soft, velvety powder evens your skin and blurs out imperfections.
I actually received the HD Perfecting Powder from this company
a few months back. I am not entirely sure what the difference
is between the products but I think the HD Perfecting powder
said Step 1 and this one says Step 2. Personally, I don’t think I
would use both together because my skin is already dry enough.
I do hope that this will have a better result in regards to setting
makeup than the HD Perfecting Powder. I found that one to be
a bit chalky.

EYEKO – Skinny Travel Size Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black
I have only received a mascara from this company and still have
yet to try it because as I’m sure you may know when you have a
few subscriptions on the go, you have multiples of mascaras,
eyeliners, lip glosses etc. Still haven’t made the time to learn how to
properly use liquid liner but I feel these pens are the best suited for
a beginner. I do like the fact that it’s small and great for on the go!

H2O+ BEAUTY – Oasis Ultra Hydrating Cream
I love receiving moisturizers in my Ipsy! I have pretty
dry skin so it is great to sample different moisturizers and
see which are the most hydrating and best fit for my skin.
I especially like gel formulas as they cool down the skin in
these hot summer months! Ingredients like sea grass and
water lily help to retain moisture. This product is also oil free
so it works for all skin types.

IBY BEAUTY – Eye shadow Fluff Brush
For the love of brushes! I honestly must have at least 25
different kinds now. I literally only use about 4 per application.
Perhaps I need to experiment a little more outside the box.
This brush is built for blending and apply eye shadow evenly.
The bristles are also flat enough to lay down loose shadows without
fall out.

Stay tuned for Topbox! I opted for a one product box and a mystery box
so they should be in sometime next week!

Nude by NatureTranslucent Loose Finishing Powder
This is my fourth Nude by Nature product and I couldn’t be happier.
I tried this powder this morning and my skin fell in love. So happy to be using
these products again. Highly recommend anything from this company. A loose mineral finishing powder that helps control shine while setting make-up in a satin matte finish. 10g $30 Available at nudebynature.com & Shoppers Drug Mart.

AlumierMDVitamin Rich Smoother C&E
Another primer! Yas! Never heard of this brand but I like what Topbox
has to say about them! A powerful multi-tasker that works as a primer by smoothing skin texture and delivering anti-aging vitamins. Recommended for all skin types. Formulated with antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E to brighten and revitalize the look of the skin. Firms skin and improves texture and tone. 30mL Available at alumiermd.com

DoucceFierce + Fine Graphic Pen
I have never been good at using liquid eyeliners.
My work wife has promised to teach me the art of the
wing now that I have this new graphic pen handy!
A deeply pigmented waterproof graphic pen that’s both easy to use
& creates precise lines. The formula glides on without the hassle of tugging or pulling and will not smear nor budge. 1.1mL $21 Available at doucce.com

So that’s it for this month!
Stay tuned for what July has in store!

Ipsy Glam Bag ~ June Edition ~

Good Afternoon All!
Can you believe it is June already?!
Time sure has flown by this year.
Shout out to this months bag theme: PRIDE!
I am so happy to see such a bright and colourful bag.
Happy Pride to all! Love to all! ❤

Luxie Beauty – 245 Small Shader Eye Brush
Brushes, brushes, brushes. You can never have too many,
right? As previously stated, I keep getting brushes but they
are always ones I don’t have surprisingly. I like the sound
of this one as its great for packing on loose pigments, powders,
cream shadows, and even concealer.

Biobelle – #UnicornGlow Perfect Radiance Tencel Facial Mask
EEP! Sheet Masks! I rarely get sheet masks so I’m sure excited about
these and you get two so double the fun! Loving the name as well.
It’s formulated with antioxidant-loaded chocolate and mulberry
which help brighten, illuminate, and even your skin tone,
and hydrating honey to soften. Eco-chic much?
These masks are biodegradable, non-toxic, and paraben-free.

Estate Cosmetics – Lip Icing in “Goodie”
Can one possibly have too many lip glosses? I think not!
I have received a few lip glosses from this company before
and although they are not my favourite, I still look forward to
new types. The iridescent shade is gorgeous on its own,
but when you apply it over your lip color, it adds a lovely, golden sheen.
Can’t say I have a gloss like this yet. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free!

Pixi by Petra – Glow Tonic
I’m probably the most excited about this product this month.
I have heard great things about this company and have never
tried any of their products. I had planned to purchase this item
along with their Rose Flash Balm so I was super glad when I saw
that I would be receiving a sample of this. Let’s see if this stuff is
worth buying at full size which actually retails for a pretty fair price.

Make Up For Ever – Step 1 Skin Equalizer Hydrating Primer
Last but definitely not least and just in time as the primer I’m
Currently using is almost finished. I would have to say primers
are one of my favourite things to sample. Some work really well
to moisturize and lock in my skin while others don’t seem to do that
much. I am familiar with this brand and like their other products so
I’m sure this will be a hit. It is said to be a lightweight, creamy primer
that plumps, smoothes and totally evens out your skin for a fab foundation
application. Anything that is going to make my makeup last longer is a
winner in my books!

Stay tuned for TOPBOX next week!

Ipsy Glam Bag ~ May Edition ~

Finally received my Ipsy!
This month’s theme is all about Travel!
The bag itself is yellow and orange with a bunch
of stamps from all over the world. Love this idea!

Lord & Berry – Maximatte Crayon Lipstick in “Intimacy”
I am a huge fan of lip crayons! They are easy to apply and
last for a long time. I like this shade specifically because it
isn’t too over the top which is perfect for an everyday work look.
I think I will need to invest in a bigger sharpener though as it is
a thick pencil and my eyeliner sharpener probably won’t cut it.
First time trying this brand and I must say it glides on with ease.

Doucce – Maxlash Volumizer Mascara
I actually received a mascara from this brand previously
and have yet to try that one. Mascara’s last for a long time
so when you have a heap of them and if you find an absolute
favourite, its hard to move on to something else. I’ll have to
wait and see on this one.

Tarte Cosmetics – Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder
I’m probably the most excited about this product. I love the brand Tarte
and it’s actually full sized! I have been experimenting with a few different
types of finishing powders as of late but I am hoping this one will take the cake!

Grace & Stella – Dead Sea Mud Mask
Yasssss. Another mask! Never disappointing.
I like the packaging of this product. It also has
quite a bit of product and it says a little goes a long
way so that’s an added bonus.

Jivi – Lavender Moisturizer
I love receiving moisturizers in my makeup subscriptions.
I have a love/hate relationship with my skin and it always
seems dry so having the opportunity to try various types of
moisturizers is wonderful. I am especially excited about this
one because it has calming lavender and a hint of green which
will help cancel out my red and blotchy skin.

Stay tuned for what June has in store!
