Beauty: IpsyBag – April 2018 #beauty #Ipsy #makeup #skincare #ipsysocialbutterfly


So here is the fist bag of my new beauty bag subscription from Ipsy.com. The price is right and I received 5 great items and a case. It costs about $15.00 CAN/month and less in the U.S. for about $11.00/month. If you’re interested, here’s the sign up link: HERE.

You can see what I received below:



A gorgeous little butterfly case, designed, and cute for many uses, makeup and beyond.



MudMasky: Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask: pH-balanced, pore-refining, hydrating, Anti-aging, brightening, and smoothing. Natural, Paraben Free, Not Tested on Animals — (www.mudmasky.com). -15 ml/0.5 mL sample

A wonderful little mask that, so far, has been great for my skin. It smells nice and leaves skin feeling smooth and brighter, as promised.



IMEECH and MIA: Eyeshadow in COPPER (meechnmia.com) Sample Size.

This shadow has nice pigment. It’s quite sparkly, but a bit too orange for my skin. Nonetheless, a nice eyeshadow product.



Ciate London: Fierce Flicks Black Liquid Liner (ciatelondon.com)1.7 mL/0.05 Fl.Oz. – Full-Sized Product

Great liquid black eyeliner is hard to find. I’ve tried Ciate nailpolish before, but never any makeup. This liner isn’t waterproof, which is my only concern. Nevertheless, it has stayed on well, with awesome pigmented liquid colour, and a felt-tip good for fine or thicker lines.



Trust Fund Beauty: That Liquid Glo Tho – Liquid Highlighter (www.trustfunbeauty.com) – 8 ml/0.27 Fl Oz. – Vegan, Free from Harmful Toxins, Cruelty Free, Ethical and Beautiful – Large Sample Size.

Probably the product I was most looking forward to, but was disappointed. Maybe it was because this liquid highlighter doesn’t blend well with foundation underneath? Or, that the goldish-pink colour is too pale for my skin?

I was hoping to use this as a daily highlighter for a natural glow, or to mix with foundation, but so far, not much luck. I’ll keep trying. I love the packaging, the colour, the brands ethical standards, and product ingredients. But I wish this highlighter was more pigmented and had a better gleam. So far, it barely shows up.



Vasanti Cosmetics: Concealer Buffer Brush. (Worth $23.00 US). Full-Sized.

Lastly, I received a concealer makeup brush. It’s a cheaper brush, to me. The quality that other brushes of the same worth have, isn’t there. However, it’s a good brush to apply powder highlighter on your cheeks, nose, and brow bone.

I don’t think it would stand up well as a concealer brush, due to concealer usually being a wet product, and the bristles of this brush coming out to start. But overall, a great bonus item for the April bag.

Luxebox Fall 2016 – MishMash of Items. #beauty #makeup #haircare


Today, is part 2 of my Luxebox, a quarterly beauty box. I received two boxes in one for Fall 2016. This part is my actual Luxebox. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to pick a theme, but the other free Luxebox balanced out with this fact. Anyway’s enjoy!

1. 

CoastalScents Blush and Bronzer Mini Palette (www.coastalScents.com)

——

2. 

Jingai Velvet Shine Lip Jewel: Champagne (S(Jing-I) noun – Pure Love (www.jingaiskin.com) – Loved this! Actually tried it, the colour is less champagne and more nude, a brown-nude, but very moisturuzing and stays on well!

——-

3. 

Bellapierre Cosmetics – Coral Cheek and Lip Stain (www.bellapierre.com) and Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer – Pore Minimizing/ Oil Free — I’m not a fan of any, Smashbox Primers, except their under eye cream primer. I will use rhis, but only under my eyes, otherwise, the brand makes my skin breakout!

——

4. 

Gorge – I’ll Make You Look Amazing Daily Spray – Leave in Conditioner and Heat Protectant — I tried this stuff before, its amazing but hard to find! Also, Ciate Paint Pots Nail Polish in PP208 – Mural Moment — Not my cup of tea, but it might work on an accent nail?

——-

5. 

Eyeko London Fat Eye Stick in Smoke – Intense Colour and Glossy Finish (www.eyeko.com)

——-

Well, that’s it until the winter box. Thanks for stopping by!
