February Ipsy

IMG_3485

Alas this is my last Ipsy bag for awhile. I’ve been cutting back on a lot so I can get rid of some debts. I wanna pay off my car. ๐Ÿ™‚

But I am liking this bag! I enjoy the nail and lip colors. I need to try and get to using these things on a daily basis so I can form a better opinion of this stuff and use it up. I have so much of this stuff, I don’t remember where I got most of it!

And really, how much of this makeup do I really need to hide in the house and type when it snows?

I did enjoy ipsy while I had it and when my finances are in better order, I may pick it back up again!

November Ipsy Bag

IMG_3406

 

This month’s Ipsy came with a bronzer, eyeliner, argon oil, mascara, and lip color. I’ll be honest, the pretty gold bag got immediately snagged by my daughter so she owns it now. But that’s ok. Every 6 year old likes shiny things and she’s entitled.

I’m kinda glad I got some bronzer since it’s all cold and such so it’s not like I can get any color. It brings a little life to my cheeks. I’m getting a little full up on mascara now and I’m sure the argon oil will come in handy. All in all, I’m glad for these. ๐Ÿ™‚ its all stuff I can use.

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. ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

September Ipsy Bag

IMG_3398

Here’s a shocker:ย I can useย everythingย in this bag!ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stay tuned for my opinions!ย My only real question is: What the heck am I gonna do with all these bags… o_O

May 2013 Ipsy Box

IMG_3322

This is my first bag ย 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.
