Hey everyone, this month my Ipsy didn’t come in until really late in the month for some reason. I finally got it a couple days ago so let’s take a peek inside! First off, I don’t think I’ll ever use this bag but I idea of it is really nifty. It’s blank and comes with 2 markers so you can colour it the way you desire.
The first item I pulled out of the bag is a brush. It’s by Skone Cosmetics, a brand I’ve never heard of before but the brush is really soft and I could see it getting the job done nicely.
The third item is from another brand I haven’t heard of, Winky Lux. This is a highlight and oh wow does it do the job! Just testing it I did a light swatch and it was very blinding! Plus, the packaging was really cute so which I always love when brands do that.
The next item is Sex Kitten by Tarte. I actually have the bigger version of this product and I love it a lot! It applies very easily shows up really well
The next item, Ahava mud mask. I like the company but I literally get a mask in every bag and I’m getting tired of it..
The final item in the bag is a Doucce shadow. The shade is very pretty but I think I already have it.
I cashed in some points last month and got this tarte lip paint.
Overall I liked my bag it’s just I already had 2 of the products and I’m tired of getting masks so it was alright.
The spring box is here and the box design itself is amazing and empowering! As for the contents inside we’ll have to check them out to see!
The first item is the Ish Lip Statement Palette. Personally I don’t do these kind of lip things so this will be a gift for sure and I already have a person in mind. This retails $42
The second thing I grabbed is one of the choice options, Ettika Day Dreamer Tassel Earring. These might be cute with an outfit I have planned out for when I go to Mexico! This retails for $58 which I don’t find is worth the price because I could to to Arden’s and find something very similar for like $5.
The next thing is a Rachel Pally Reversible clutch with retails for $60. I’m sorry but personally the colour I got I won’t be keeping this because I find it ugly. If anything I’d use the orange side but I’d never have an outfit for that.
The next thing I’m also going to use on my way to Mexico which is Free People & Understated Leather Starry eyed travel eye mask. This retails for $40 which again is expensive for an eye mask but I’m glad to have gotten one.
The next item I’m happy about due to my candle addiction. It’s Anderson Lilley Sunset Collection Candel in Super Bloom. It smells amazing! It retails for $45.
This item is a Physique 57 Massage Roller which I’m so thankful for since I just started the gym and will be needed this in my life! It retails for $20 which is actually pretty good.
The next item is the second choice option and I choose Korres Guava Body Butter which I like I just have so many body butters! It retails for $24 which again isn’t too bad.
The next item is Mira’s Skin Perfecting Lotion. Just like the last item I’m glad to get this I just have a lot of lotions so I’m not sure if this will actually be used or not. It retails for $40.
The last item in the box is Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Makeover Concealing ridge Filler. It retails for $18 and I can’t wear nail polish at work so I won’t be able to use this.
This product I added on because I loved the other shade I got in the last box so I got this in the shade of red wine.
Overall, I have to say I’m disappointed in this box. For how much I spend on the box although it adds up to $347 I won’t even be using half of the items. I might use 4/9 and I won’t even be keeping all of them so it feels like a waste of money. Hopefully next season is better. This is just a personal preference other people might use these but I myself either already have too many or don’t like the products.
A while ago I got a package in the mail. In this box was the Tarte Park Ave Princess collection. This package came with a couple items in it.
The first item I opened was the Park Ave Princess Chisel palette. I used this for my bronzer with the shade princess cut and loved it! It applied so easily and looked great. The other shades would be great for eyeshadows even.
I haven’t tried the Amazonian clay waterproof bronzer but the swatch was beautiful.
The next item was the Chrome paint shadow pot. You only need a very light hand for this shadow it’s very pigmented and golden. I used it on my lid and there was plenty more to spare.
It came with three lip products a matte lip paint and two glitter colours, a more suttle one and a more bold colour.
It also came with contour brush set. They’re so soft and help apply the products in the range.
Using these products and other Tarte items such as the eyeshadows in the Treasure Box, Paaarty blush, Lights Camera Lashes mascara, Sex Kitten liner, and the matte lip paint with high standards. I love this range so much more than I expected to. The brushes apply the products so great and I loved the final look!
A couple weeks ago my friend and I went to watch the end of the Fifty Shades Trilogy. It’s was breathlessly romantic in the best way possible. Although things aren’t always handled the best the couple puts up with each other through thick and thin bringing their vows to life. It’s an emotional journey through the last chapter of Christian and Anastasia Greys lives together in the twisted world they live in. Although it is a romantic there is also action in it and sweet cars. I really enjoyed the movie and it did the book justice. There of course were parts left out and a few scenes that I liked how the book projected the story better but overall it was great. My friend and I both loved it so if you’ve enjoyed the previous two I’d forsure go check this one out!
The month of February just seemed to fly by! I mean it’s March Already!? Not a lot of things happened this month but one big thing did!
At the beginning of the month Kody (my boyfriend) and I decided to get kitties. We love them so much and they’re just so cute! I made a post about them if you want to check it out!
In the month Kody and I were able to go out to brunch to Cora’s and it was so good! A strawberry banana milkshake and Strawberry covered French toast.
For Valentines Day, Kody and I didn’t do much since we had plans for the week after. However, he did surprise me with breakfast in bed. Then that night for dinner we ate dinner st my work.
The last weekend of the month my boyfriend and I booked a vacation to Mexico for the summer and my mum gave me a visit getting the kittens a couple of toys they really love.
Over this month I haven’t felt very well so I’ve been going on more walks than working out my abs and core which is what I normally do. Yesterday’s walk Kody and I went on a new path and took some photos I love.
This month I finished reading Game of Thrones right at the beginning of the month but then I didn’t really get many chances to rad after that. I started to read Darker but I’m not even half way. I was only able to pick it up once this month.
This month I’ve mainly been watching Bones, Riverdale, Dynasty, and Gossip Girl now that it’s back on Netflix. I saw Balck Panther twice in theatre once with friends and then with my boyfriend this month, and then I also saw Fifty Shades Freed.
