October Birchbox

IMG_20131013_112454

Yes, this is late but I completely forgot to do this in anything resembling a timely fashion so just enjoy anyway.

This box includes:

So far, I have tried the lip gloss and hair treatment. First off, I LOVE the hair treatment. It came at the perfect time to heal my hair after I burned the crap out of it for NYCC. It smelled great and it turned my straw-like, brittle hair into slightly less dry, brittle hair. I didn’t use too much but I saw a remarkable difference.

As for the lip gloss, I find it a bit thick for my tastes but the shine and color are perfect for a person who doesn’t want to have any one thing be too bright or shiny. It gave me just enough gloss to look polished but I didn’t look like I was drooling.

I look forward to using the mask. I’ve had good luck with the ones I’ve gotten in the past and they are things I wouldn’t usually seek out on my own.

Stay tuned for the Ipsy bag! (also late but… Deal with it)

May 2013 Ipsy Box

IMG_3322

This is my first bag Β 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.
