Hey guys! Hope you’re all doing well. Today is pretty exciting, I’m doing my very first Ipsy bag review! Woo! I’ve been receiving these bags since around November, I believe, and have been pretty happy with the majority of them, and luckily, this month is no different.
For those who don’t know, Ipsy is a subscription bag service that is only $10 a month. Every month, you get a themed bag that contains 5 makeup or beauty products. Sometimes they are small sample sizes, deluxe sample sizes, or even full sized things! I believe it is way worth the $10 (most months, at least). This month’s theme is Summer Lovin’, so let’s take a dive into the bag and see what I got!
Hey guys! Whoa, a post on a Monday night rather than the weekend? Weird, right? Well, it’s because I won’t be able to post something two weekends from now because I’m going on vacation, so I figured I’ll post something now to make up for it!
Today I have another Physician’s Formula Review, but unlike last time, it’s not just about discounted products. It’s even better: A free product! Yep. Physician’s Formula had a giveaway of sorts a few weeks ago that I entered, and ended up being one of the winners! I wasn’t even sure what exactly I was entering to win, to be honest, but I just went for it. And then, this morning, a lovely little surprise arrived in my mail! The Physician’s Formula Sexy Booster Cat Eye Collection Mascara! (Is it just me, or do they have some ridiculous names of products?) The packaging I have says it is a “new” product, and I think that’s why the giveaway was going on, but when I googled the product there are reviews of this product since January of this year. Maybe it was only in select areas before, and now they’re going to be distributing them everywhere? I haven’t seen this at my local drugstores, so it would be new to my area, but who knows!
Hello all! Hope you’re all doing well. Although I’ve been trying to stick to reviews, I figured that while I’m packing for vacation it’d be fun to show you guys what I’m packing makeup wise for vacation!
There is a teeny issue with that though: I am not a light packer when it comes to makeup. I’m one of those people who are like ‘Well what if one night I want to do a bright berry lip? I have to pack one of those then!’, even when I know there will be nothing that calls for that while I’m away. So this is kind of extensive. But, I’m sure if you read some of my other posts, you’ve realized I like to be quite thorough with my reviews and explanations, so lets get started!
Have I ever mentioned how much I love a good bargain? Because I do. And with a Burlington Coat Factory so close to me, it’s hard to not come across a great steal from there. This week, I have a total of eight products from the Physician’s Formula brand (one of the more expensive brands of the drugstore) that only cost me a total of $10. Yep, eight products for ten dollars. Amazing, right?
Hello! How’s everyone doing today? I have a pretty nice review for you all today, on the NYX Be Free Palette
This palette contains a whopping 25 eyeshadows, 3 blushes, and 7 lip glosses (the blushes and lip glosses are in a little pullout tray on the bottom, keeping your glosses mostly safe from powder fallout). And the best part? It was only $8! Yep, that’s right. I got mine for $8 from Ross. The original retail price for this palette is $20, but it seems to be no longer available from mass retailers, like Ulta. I have seen the Be Free palette at least 2 Ross locations and 2 Burlington locations, so I’m sure that there are these palettes floating around somewhere at your local Ross/Burlington/Marshall’s/etc. Plus, it’s available on Amazon, though it is selling for $17 there.
Although I only have one post prior to this one, you’ll start to see a pattern as I continue to post things here: I love a deal. Seriously, 95% of all of my makeup has been purchased at a great sale price, on clearance, or via a discount site, like HauteLook. And this post will show nothing different.
This past week, Rite Aid was having a 40% off sale on all Wet n Wild cosmetics. Yep, 40%! That’s nearly half off. So what are already budget-friendly products became even friendlier, and my wallet became even happier.
Before this, I had already tried 3 of the Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stains and really liked them, so I decided to go all out and purchase the remaining 9 colors during this sale in order to do a master post of all of the swatches. Let’s take a look, shall we?
So, recently I was going through my junk emails when I noticed one that caught my eye. Just a few weeks ago there was a major sale going on over at eyeslipsface.com, including a special kit that was on sale for just $15. Me, being totally irresponsible and terrible at saving my money, decided to go all out and purchase tons of stuff, including that kit. It was called the “Garden Party Kit” and it included a total of 10 items, including a 100 color eyeshadow palette. Seriously, what a steal.
