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!!!

Cell Phone Case Addiction: Save Me Now!

I don’t ever want to limit myself on the number of obsessions I decide to share on my blog posts because they will vary.   So today in this new blog post I have another obsession and a product review all at the same time.  

Ever since I owned a cell phone, I always had a heavy addiction to phone cases.  Over the years, I had about 12 cases for each phone! I know that sounds really crazy, but that was the honest truth! They were different ones from Disney to blinged out ones to water proof cases.  But now that I have a new I phone, I only have three cases for this one.  I just recently changed my phone case and put on the new army print Military Grade phone case which I love because it makes my phone bigger than it already is.  I love the way it looks and feel on my phone and the fact it has a strap is even better!

Trust me, this is my last phone case! I can’t continue wasting money on new phone cases when I know good and well I can’t wear all of them. LOL. I have three so I can rotate whenever I feel like it.   Now that I have a better I Phone, I just love using the picture effects and portrait mode for my pictures.  They look very professional.  So no more phone cases for me. The one I just recently purchased on Amazon I truly love!

Skin Care Product Reviews: The World of Nivea, CeraVe and Dove

How many of you know the importance of having a clear and hydrating skin?  I have tried over the years various of face cleanser products since I have sensitive and dry skin.  I tried Clean N Clear, but it left my face feeling tight and dry and I think my face was a little allergic to it.  I just decided not to use any cleansers on my face for awhile and just wash my face with warm water to see how it does.  Then I started using dove beauty bar to wash my face some mornings and every night especially when I wear make up.  

 

I haven’t tried the Hydrating cleanser, but I will in the near future.  This facial wash goes on really smooth and it leaves my face feeling moist and hydrated.  I can definitely feel the difference between the clean and clear brand and CeraVe brand.  I definitely recommend this brand if you are looking for a good facial wash to use.  We finally have a winner! 

I definitely wanted to try this type of dove soap since I’m always using the pink one and the original.  I grew up using Dove soap ever since I was an infant.  It is so good for your skin and it smells really good!  Now the Dove exfoliating soap smells really good too and it leaves your skin feeling renewed! It even makes my bathroom smell good! I will highly recommend any Dove products.  When it gets really cold, your body gets a little dehydrated and it requires extra moisture on your skin. 

 

Another product I’ve been using for awhile is Nivea.  Actually my dad introduced me to that brand because other lotions I was using wasn’t giving me enough moisture to my body.  I have been using Nivea products for about two years now and I love every moment of moisturizing my skin, hand and feet. 

 

This 48-hour body lotion is really good and I like the fact it has Shea butter in it.  I use Shea butter on my hair as well.

Looking for a reliable hand creme? Nivea Creme does wonders for your hands! Especially in the winter months, it gets the job done.  It’s made small so you can keep it in your car or purse.

 

Nivea Soft smells AMAZING and I enjoy smelling this scent every morning.  The big jar I use on my feet every morning along with Vaseline and Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa foot cream.  Sometimes I will use it on my skin as well.  The tube I use just on my hands and I keep that in my purse and on my desk at work.  I lotion my hands every time I wash my hands so the moisture doesn’t disappear throughout the day.  You can purchase these products at Wal-Mart, any drug store or even Target.  Oh yeah, Amazon carries them as well!

Great Photography Apps for I phone Users

I’ve always been fascinated with taking pictures and editing them; more like me taking ten million selfies and photos of myself! LOL.  A couple of years ago, I saw a frog on the side of my house and back then I had an Android Samsung Galaxy and decided to take a picture of it.  I am very fascinated with taking unique and nature pictures as well as pictures of flowers.
