May 2013 Ipsy Box

IMG_3322

This is my first bag  from Ipsy and I heard it’s as good or better than Birchbox. That’s gonna take some time to see cause I’ve gotten some pretty swanky things from Birchbox.

My first impression is that I like it. I love nail polish (it’s the easiest and fastest beauty thing I can do) and lip gloss. I am also ALWAYS open to new hair treatments for my dry as hell hair.

The concealer however, I am absolutely gonna give away. I am one of those women other woman hate because I almost never get a pimple and to be perfetly honest, I don’t give a rats ass if my eyes have shadows under them. I’m a working mother of a 5 year old trying to sell books and crafts on the site. Shit yeah, I’m tired and I’m proud of it. XD

I’ve used Zoya polish before so I know this will be a great summer color for my fingers and toes. The perfume I have to be careful with because I work with people with scent sensitivities. When I start dating again (or whenever I feel like it) I’ll wear it then. For now, I like the soft, fruity scent of it.

As for the inevitable collection of bags I will have? Maybe I’ll give them away on the blog or my site. I certainly won’t need all of them.

February Birchbox

100_0011

Another year another set of lovely Birchboxes. 🙂 This month features:

Let me start off by saying any box containing chocolate is a win in my opinion. XD You know that little square didn’t last long in my possession. 😉 As for the rest, time will tell. I am a little leery of the mud mask, though. I may brag that I have skin like dragon hide, nothing really affects me but, in rare cases, masks like this have made me break out in a burny rash and I have to scrub it off and wear A&D. So, I won’t be trying that one till I’m sure I can be home for a couple days in case I have a reaction.

Also, I am glad not to get any perfume samples this time. I’m freaking DROWNING in them and I’ve only liked one enough to consider buying it. At $95, I’m saving up my points to get it on a discount. I work with several people who are sensitive to strong scents so I have to be careful with what I put on my body.

As usual, I will try to remember to update when I try these things. I have a pile of stuff to try out and since I’m working on decluttering, I’ll be using this stuff as quickly as I can. 😉
