Ipsy November Glam Bag

It’s been awhile since I subscribed to the Ipsy Bag.  It’s now $12.99 per month and when I used to order them, it was only $9.99!! A big price increase! But I love the little samples it comes with and the cute bags! November’s Ipsy bag is really cute because it’s leopard print and I love animal print! The five products exclusively for me were pretty cool except for the lipstick color that is a little too light for me, but it still seems like a really decent feel and brand. 

I still have a lot of my Ipsy Bags from years ago and I usually use them to put items in them such as my lip products, baby powder oil, lotion, and other little things I can put in my purse.  I definitely will be switching out my bag for this cute little animal print friend!

This sexy liquid eyeliner is definitely on point and has it’s fierce side to it! This eyeliner is by Skone Cosmetics which is called Insanely Tattooed Mini Eyeliner in Jet Black.  I love doing cat-eyes with my eyeliner, so with this sample, I can definitely put in work to my eyes! I tried it on for the first time yesterday and I love it! I am used to the eyeliner pencil, so I still have some adjusting to do with the liquid kind. 

This product is for a bodily glow on the go! GiGi Gorgeous is the brand I never tried.  I haven’t quite tried this yet because I never tried any body glow products period, so when I do try it, I will have to do a follow-up quick post on it.  But the color matches my skin perfectly and I can’t wait to try it!This product is named for the Youtube personality, author and activist Gigi Gorgeous.  

This is the Hola Neon Brand Tinted Lip Balm.  Like I mentioned earlier, I’m not a big fan of this color simply because of my complexion.  I only wear dark colors like burgundies, plums and dark reds.  I can still try it on again every now and then.  Hopefully in my next Ipsy Bag, there will be a color I will enjoy more.

Lotions are definitely my favorites because I am constantly lotioning and moisturizing my hands.  I tried this for the first time last week and the smell is citrus and smells amazing!!! This is by Delectable by Cake Beauty Triple Citrus Blend Butter Balm Hand Cream.  An awesome choice! 

I love eye shadows especially nude and light colors! When I saw this little sample Pixi by Petra brand called Mesmerizing Mineral Duo in Naturally Dude, I was excited.  I haven’t tried it on yet, but I definitely will tomorrow.  Nude colors goes with just about everything.  That’s why I use a lot of nudes when I just want a natural finish look and don’t feel like putting on a whole lot of make up. 

 

I can honestly say that I am satisfied with my November Ipsy Bag.  There will be some months where I will skip because I already have a lot of make up stored in my room.  I will probably get the December bag and skip January.  I can’t to share with you what’s in my December Ipsy Bag! Stay tuned!!!

Lip Stick Colors That Will Get You in the Halloween Spirit

This post is for all my beauty bloggers, beauty lovers and those who just love anything that’s beauty related! Happy Halloween to each and everyone of you!  I want to share some of these hot colors that can be worn for Halloween…or anytime really if you are really bold enough to wear these colors.  This purple metallic color  is called “Two Faced” that can be purchased at Nordstrom Rack. It is a throwback Metallic Lipstick. 

NYX Professional has always been one of my favorite brands for make up.  I wear their eyeliner, eye shadow and eyebrow liner products.  I haven’t really tried their lipsticks yet, but I will be trying it soon, especially this color which can be worn almost everyday if you dare to be gold! It has that matte finish to it which doesn’t fade or anything.  This color is called “Goaldigger”  I like that name because I am always trying to achieve all my goals every month and every year!

This color is from the Pretty Zombie Cosmetics Line.  I’m not really a big fan of this color, but it is perfect for Halloween and for parties in general.  If you decide that you would like to wear it out, you are very BOLD!

I found this image on Pintrest and thought this was really awesome! I like the ombre mixed color, but I don’t think I can wear a two-toned color out in public, but for this special day, I think I could pull it off.  This color is called Indigo Summer.

I definitely love this color! This reminds me of a lipstick I have at home which is by the “The Balm” Brand and the color I have is called “Adoring” This matte color can go good with just about everything!

Another Bold combination of colors for Halloween.  I like the dark colors more because it goes better with my complexion.  Most basic colors to wear for Halloween are bold like dark reds, plums, greens, and some blacks.  Whatever colors you decide to wear, be Bold and be You!

Beauty of the Week

I never thought it would be hard to spend $20 (In Rewards)  I shop in Kohl’s and in the last post I mentioned I work at Kohl’s and they have some great deals…sometimes. So after I got off of work on Saturday, I browsed around the store for at least 20 or 25 minutes looking for something to buy.  I went to the beauty department and started looking for make up brush.  I came across these cute Real Techniques eye shadow brushes and decided I can always use brushes. I’m a make up brush queen! I also have ELF brushes as well that I have stocked up on, so when one brush is dirty, I can use another one.  Real Techniques brushes are good quality and that was only one item on my mini shopping list. 

$9.00

 

As I mentioned I have a lot of e.l.f. brushes, but I never had the Duo Brush for your eyebrows.  I mean I have a brush attached to my eyebrow pencils, but none by itself.  The eyebrow brushes are really good and chic! Before putting on your eyebrow make up, you want to brush your eyebrows really good because it gives you a good angle when lining up your brows and shading them in.

$4.00

I actually used this before and it works fine on my make up brushes.  I also have the  shampoo cleaner as well for the brushes which I use daily. This is really good stuff and it gets the job done.

$4.00

 

 

Brushes these days are really hard to find for some strange reason, at least a decent one.  The one I have now is really old and I had to get rid of that.  I stopped by the beauty supply store down the street and chose a decent looking brush with a firm grip.  This is a two-sided brush for different textures and for detangling. 

The hard bristle side is what I use the most to keep my hair from frizzing (my hair frizzes pretty bad since I’ve been natural for two years) But I do use a spray to control the frizzles. This evolve brand brush is nice and soft.

I don’t really use this texture of brush often unless i’m wrapping my hair.  But it wouldn’t hurt to try using this side with my hair texture as well. 

$6.99

 

These are some new items that I wanted to share with you on my blog today.  I know I said that my next post would be a part two of my monthly obsession and I will definitely have that post up on Wednesday so be sure that you are subscribed to my blog so you won’t miss any of my posts.
