August Birchbox

I have recently begun having my brows done again so this is an interesting pick for me this month. Thin brows aren’t a problem for me so I don’t know exactly how I would use this…

As for the rest of it is all stuff I can use but I don’t see myself buying more of any of it after I use up the samples. There are similar products I use that are a fraction of the cost and work just fine. Any sort of wipes in the summer are appreciated. I’ve been trying to walk every day on my lunch break and when it’s like soup outside, I hate spending the rest of the day sticky and gross.

I wonder when they’re gonna be putting snacks in these boxes again.

March 2016 Birchbox

Yet another instance of a subscription box helping me out, I’ve been needing a new set of brown neutral eye shadow. My old Sephora one has seen better days (I broke it…) so this is a perfect replacement. When I do get up early enough in the morning do put on makeup, I tend to stick with that color palate instead of something that if I screw up applying it, I will look like a clown…

As for the rest of it, I will take any anti-aging stuff I can find and I am curious to see if a blow out spray will work on my hair even though I use a flat iron instead. Heat protection is heat protection, right?

No really, I don’t know. This is why I stick with this subscription box. To learn this stuff.

 

October Ipsy Bag

IMG_20131015_193653

This month’s Ipsy included eyeshadow from Wet n’ Wild which is a really good brand for the prices AND I know how to us this stuff. 😀 The brush I didn’t need because I went for broke and bought a brush set from elf so it can be a backup. The wipes will come in handy in my desk at work (because I have 50 different face washes in the house because of the number of free samples I’ve gotten) and nail polish is basically the one place I feel comfortable enough to experiment and play with because I know how to  use it. XD

As for the hair spray, I’m gonna give it away. My hair comes with it’s own volume and the LAST thing I need is a product that makes my hair BIGGER. My mixed-race background has “blessed” me with poofy, kinky, curly hair. I need moisturizing and smoothing, not volumizing. But I’m sure I know someone who can use it. There needs to be a place to swap bag contents… XD I would sign up so fast. In the meantime, I just pass them along to my friends. 😉

September Ipsy Bag

Here’s a shocker: I can use everything in this bag! There is not a single item I cringed away from in abject fear; it’s all familiar. THANK YOU IPSY!!! XD

Nope, haven’t tried any of these yet, despite the fact I can easily use any of these. Lately, it’s all I can do to get out dressed and awake in the morning. Forget getting made up. But that’s ok. Those morning’s can’t last forever. Sooner or later, the kid will get used to getting up and ready for school without having me dog her every step to get it done. :p I get halfway to work and realize that I didn’t wear any makeup. Oops…

As I could SORELY use a “Pamper the Lenni” day, those masks will probably get used first. 😉 Stay tuned for my opinions! My only real question is: What the heck am I gonna do with all these bags… o_O
