Good Afternoon All!

Ipsy Glam Bag!

Aurora Pro Color Corrector In “Pistachio”
So your getting ready for that wedding you have been excited for all
summer and then your realize you have this MASSIVE red spot on your face!
Oh god, the day is ruined. Not quite. Color correctors are a blessing during these times.
This product looks very promising as it is already pigmented in a green hue which we
all know cancels out red so this should be quite the good cover up.

Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
I have been waiting for a Pacifica product for what feels like forever
and here I get one of the best ones out there! The first shade is a beaming
yet muted terracotta and the second is referred to as Tenderheart, a soft mauve.
They can be worn separately or blended together to created a custom hue.
I can’t wait to exchange my old blush’s for this gorgeous set!

The Balm Cosmetics – The Balm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Kuwalaribisha
The Balm Cosmetics is a fantastic company! I have received some of their eyeshadows
in previous glam bags and love how pigmented they are. I am super happy to have received this particular shade as I plan to not only use it as a eyeshadow but also a
highlighter! Now that’s what I call a two in one product!

SLMissGlam T35 Precise Blending Brush
Alright, alright, alright! I probably own about 20 different
types of brush’s by now but that’s just the thing! It’s 20
DIFFERENT types! I am stoked to be receiving this as you may
have seen in my previous Boxycharm post that I have a new
palette to play with!

Juliette Has A Gun – Not A Perfume
Yasssss! I only ever received a perfume sample from Ipsy once
and absolutely love it and legit wore it until there was nothing left.
These samples are so great to just throw in the purse and spray on
the go. This particular perfume is referred to as a ” molecular composition.”
The screen takes a moment to build and adjusts to your chemistry for an edgy,
works-on-everyone scent that is woodsy and earthy without coming off too sweet
or flowery.

Well it looks like that’s it for this month, folks!
Looking forward to what fall blows our way!

Topbox – August Edition –

Good Afternoon All!
As summer is sadly coming to a close, it’s starting to appear
as though the style, types of makeup and beauty products
are beginning to change. This month Topbox features four items.
So let’s begin!

topbox

Lilly Pilly Green Tea Body Wash – Retail Price: $6.22 50ml
This mild plant-derived wash creates a rich, luxurious lather that cleans without stripping or drying. Packed with skin loving extracts of; White Pine Bark, Green Tea,Ginseng, Bearberry and Licorice, skin is left silky soft. I am actually quite thrilled to try out this body wash. I feel that all of the natural items infused together will create an awakening scent that makes you feel refreshed.

Be A Bombshell Eye Shadow In “Bewitched” – Retail Price: $7
To be completely honest, I am not really a fan of be a bombshell products.
I received a sample of their eyeliner in a previous subscription and I almost
had to poke my eye out just to get it to show on my waterline. I swatched this
eye shadow and can’t really make out if its suppose to be a greyish green or what.
Needless to say, I think this will only come in handy for Halloween.

DKNY Be Delicious Perfume – Retail Price: $19.09 7ml
I was actually super excited to have receive a sample of this perfume.
Over the years I have always had friends that had this perfume but me
being the cheap person I am, couldn’t justify paying $85 for the full size.
A little goes a long way so I’m sure this sample will last me for quite some time.

Shu Uemura Nutri: Nectar Gentle Cleansing Oil In Emulsion – Retail Price: $44 100ml
Cleansing oils remove makeup gently and effectively cleanses & moisturizes the skin in just one step. Apparently this product line is a huge hit in Australia so I might as well give it a go. As I’m sure we can all agree, any help removing makeup is worth it.

Topbox done and dusted. Looking forward to what
September’s Fall Edition has in store!

Boxycharm – August Edition –

Let the August monthly subscriptions begin!
As mentioned in my last boxycharm post, this is a three month
installment I decided to try out. This is month two and I already
want to re-subscribe! So many amazing products, I can’t believe my eyes!
So let’s begin!
boxycharm.jpg

Moda Pro, 3 Piece Brush Set by Royal & Langnickel – Retail Price: $26.00
This three piece set comes with a pointed blush, chisel blender and crease brush.
The first thing I noticed about these brushes were the handles! They have
an amazing grip which makes application that much easier. The actual bristles
are super soft to touch and all of these brushes can be used for both wet and dry
products. I am really looking forward to using these brushes to amp up my application
game.

Waterproof Gel Eyeliner by Bellapierre – Retail Price: $15.00
So a little while back I received a gel liner in one of my ipsy bags that
I was slightly skeptical about and low and behold it is now one of my
favourites. Finding a black eyeliner that actually lasts an entire day can
seem impossible. I think this liner will be similar to my other new fan
favourite so I feel it will come with great results. Also, the gel formula is
a huge bonus as it glides on with ease.

Pro Eyelashes by PUR The Complexion Authority – Retail Price: $15.00
I actually can’t even remember the last time I worse fake eyelashes.
I feel like it might have been in a dance performance in drama class back
in high school or perhaps a Halloween costume?! I have long lashes as it is
so I have never been one to venture with these bad boys. That being said,
I’m pretty happy to have received them! These are said to be lightweight
and natural looking with a fuller lash finish. I think the only problem I will
have is sticking them to my lids with glue without making a hot mess.
I will say that I like the idea that they are reusable for up to 30 days!

#GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick by The Beauty Crop – Retail Price: $14.95
Lips! Lips! Lips! I loveeeeeeeeeee liquid lipsticks. Any excuse to enhance the
colour of my lips, I’m there! For a long time I never did much in regards to
eye makeup as I wear glasses and found that it didn’t show through as well
compared to those who don’t wear glasses. Because of this, I always enhanced
my lips with the brightest and boldest colours I can find. I especially love the
matte formula. The fact that it says it won’t get cakey, flake or dry out makes it
a big seller in my books! Welcome to the collection, “Date Night!”

Rainforest of the sea: Volume II by Tarte – Retail Price: $36.00
So I’m pretty sure anyone who is subscribed to boxycharm was
on the edge of their seat when they saw that this palette was coming
in this month’s box! From the casing to the amazing eight, cool-toned shades,
I’m pretty sure we are all jumping for joy having such a stunning palette
to work with! You can’t go wrong with crease-free eye shadow known for its
creamy powder formula. Simply loving the design of the case.
All of the mermaid vibes!

So there you have it!
September marks my last Boxycharm box.
I am deeply saddened and hoping I can put aside a bit of money to
keep on with this wonderful collection of beauty products.
Until next time…

Boxycharm – July Edition –

Good afternoon all!
So as mentioned in my TOPBOX post,
I decided to treat myself for my upcoming birthday
by getting a three month subscription to Boxycharm!
I am really excited about this subscription specifically
because all of the items are super high end and FULL SIZE!
So without further ado, I present to you all, the July edition:

box.jpg

 

Electric Eyes Palette by Blinc – Retail price: $45.00
This palette features five highly-pigmented, jewel tone eye shadows.
The shades can be worn alone or together to compliment one another.
This formula blends with ease and is long-lasting.  These shades could
not be more my style. I wear a lot of similar styled shades already on
the regular so having more and with such amazing quality is quite exciting!

Ultra-Matte Lip Stain by ColourPop – Retail price: $6.00
This product is said to be super lightweight which is a thumbs up in my book.
Matte lip stains can sometimes feel heavy so knowing that even a little goes a long
way is awesome! Long-lasting products are key too whether it’s for a night out on
the town or for your everyday work look. I am a huge fan of bright coloured lips.
I love wearing bold colours and matching them to outfits and accessories.
This item will definitely find its way into my purse for everyday wear.

Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo by BareMinerals – Retail price: $32.00
This silky and ultra-fine combination of setting powder and finishing powder instantly vanishes on all skin tones. Enjoy and even, long lasting, natural looking, luminous complexion. To be honest, I’m not all that familiar with setting powders but have always wanted to try them. I’m really excited to receive these as they are good quality and I like to go for a natural look with my makeup so knowing these blend nicely make it all the more worthwhile.

Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil by WinkyLux – Retails price: $12.00
One brow pencil to rule them all! Simplify your brow game with this 2-step pencil.
Its firm texture gives maximum control so anyone can be a brow boss.
I have recently experimented with brow pencils/gels. I don’t like my eyebrows
to look painted on but I do like to have them filled in so there doesn’t appear
to be what I call “naked spots.” The fact that this pencil is universal is fantastic.
Sometimes buying shades and not getting a chance to try them can lead to a
really dark angry brow and I’m sure we are all no fan of that!

Spray.Set.Go Makeup Setting Spray by Project Beauty – Retail price: $32.00
Keep your makeup fresh all day long! I am currently using the NYX setting spray
in Dewy. I love these items, especially during the summer months when everything
seems to shift on your face. I also use it before my softball games so that while being
active, my face isn’t falling off lol. I know that sounds like I wear A LOT of makeup but
I really don’t and it is nice to be able to have control and keep the same look you started with at the beginning of the day.

So there you have it! I’m really happy to have purchased this subscription
even if my credit card is not (haha). These products are all full size and
the variety is exceptional. Until next time, makeup lovers.
