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. 🙂

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!

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. 😉

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.
