August Ipsy Glam Bag

My Glam Bag for August arrived today! IMG_5699

Here’s what I got:

–Coastal Scents Forever Blush. IMG_5701

–Lord & Berry Black Silk Mini Kajal kohl liner.  They weren’t kidding about the “mini” part! This is the tiniest little nub of an eyeliner!  But it’s a perfect size for your purse. IMG_5703

–Dr. Brant Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer.  I’m excited about this!IMG_5702

–Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.  I’m excited about this too.  I love trying new mascaras! IMG_5704

–Absolute New York You’re The Balm Grape Lip Balm.  I’m normally not a big fan of lip balm you have to put on with your finger but I LOVE the way this smells.  Just like grape soda! IMG_5700

Of course everything came in a super cute little bag!

July Ipsy Glam Bag!

My July Ipsy Glam Bag came today!  Super cute bag filled with all new to me products!

IMG_5592

The breakdown:

  • Pur-lisse SPF 30 Sunscreen.  Perfect for travel and it’s supposedly good for sensitive skin.  Yay!IMG_5593
  • Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow.  The color is a dark taupeish color.  It doesn’t say which shade it is on the teeny tiny bottle.  A little dark for me for Summer but I’ll use it for sure in the Fall. IMG_5597
  • Clear Clinic Vanished Clear Spot Treatment.  It’s a tiny bottle of pimple treatment. Good for travel when my skin almost always acts up!IMG_5596
  • Tints & Sass Fabulous Lip & Cheek Stain by Elizabeth Mott in Cherry.  I’m a wee bit afraid of this as I have such fair skin. I don’t want to look like Raggedy Ann with big red cheeks.  But I’ll try it! IMG_5594
  • Models Own nail polish in Red Sea. It’s a reddish orangeish coral with holographic glitter floating around in there!  Can’t wait to try it! IMG_5595

Ipsy Oopsie!

When my June Ipsy Glam Bag came I had a problem with 2 of the items.  The Be A Bombshell mascara smelled SO bad and chemically that it was unusable.  And the Jessie’s Girl liquid eye liner exploded all over me and my eye.  So I sent Ipsy an email and got one back that they’d send me some replacement items.  My replacement package came today!

Ipsy sent me 3 things to replace the 2!  Nice!  I got:

  • Starlooks Kohl Eye Pencil in Obsidian (black)
  • Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in Last Call Girl (hot pink)
  • and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Plum

I’m super excited about these products and I’m very impressed with Ipsy’s customer service!

Klout Perk! Beyond Natural Pet Food

The pugs and I were so excited to receive a Klout perk this week! IMG_5462We received a coupon for a free bag of Beyond Dry Dog Food, and more importantly to the pugs, a bag of Beyond!

IMG_5492Molly & Zoe couldn’t wait to tear into it!

IMG_5463I mixed it in with their current food to avoid tummy issues and they love it! Thanks Klout and Purina!

 

 

June Ipsy Glam Bag

My June Ipsy Glam Bag arrived and my first thought was that it’s the best one yet!  Check out what I received:

IMG_5457

The Breakdown:

IMG_5460Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Wipes.  Cleansing wipes in a travel pack.  Awesome!
IMG_5456NYX Butter Gloss in Elclair.  Pretty shade and everyone online raves about the butter gloss.

IMG_5461Marc Anthony (wonder if it’s the same Marc Anthony/ JLo’s ex?) Dream Waves Beach Spray.  OMG! this stuff smells like summer in a bottle!  Can’t wait to try it.  Yes, even short haired girls can have beachy waves!

IMG_5459Be a Bombshell Lash Out Mascara in Black.  Good looking brush in a full sized bottle.  Only thing is it has an odd smell.  Wonder if that will go away?

IMG_5458Jessie’s Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Black.  I was especially excited to try this so I opened it to check out the applicator.  Eye liner juice went EVERYWHERE.  I cleaned it up and stored the eyeliner upright for a day.  Went back to use it and it just poured out the applicator all over my eye and right into my eye!  My eye white turned black!  It was awful.  So I won’t be able to use this.  Sigh.

Over all though it was a good Glam Bag!

Books Read in 2014

1. Divergent by Veronica Roth

2. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

3. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

4. And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

5. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt*

I really shouldn’t list The Goldfinch on this list.  I only got to page 170 or so out of 775.  I know it won the Pulitzer but I. just. can’t.  I just can’t get into it, hard as I tried.  Oh, and And The Mountains Echoed?  I should get a reward for finishing that book.  Every chapter was written from a different point of view.  Drove me bonkers!

 

May Ipsy Glam Bag!

My Ipsy Glam Bag for May has arrived and it smells so good!  Here’s a group shot of what was included:

Now, for the breakdown.

I received:

-Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask. This is what is making the bag smell so good.  Can’t wait to use it!

IMG_5323

-Hang Ten Classic Sport Sunscreen in SPF 50.  Awesome!  It’s got to be at least SPF 50 to do anything for me so I’m really excited about this little tube.  Perfect for travel!

IMG_5325

- Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub.  Smells like lemons!  Yum!

IMG_5324
