January Beauty Box: Ipsy

For some reason, I started this blog post on the 24th, and haven’t, until now, gotten around to finishing it. So here I go. Here was January’s Ipsy bag.

cardback The January’s theme of the Ipsy bag was Super Stars as you can see by the front of the card.
Here are the items: ipsyjanuary

Dolce & Gabbana: Sicilian Lace Powder Bronzer

So I finally get around to checking my personal email around this time of day.. and I just found the most beautiful makeup item EVER in an email! No joke.

I had to share it real fast, because it really is that gorgeous.  I seriously might purchase it just to stare at it. :)

It’s the Dolce & Gabbana – Sicilian Lace Powder Bronzer. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue for $47

Dolce&Gabbana

Gorgeous right??

Happy Black Friday!

I hope you are all shopped out and have scored some amazing deals! I know I did. I got my schedule together yesterday and figured out where all to go and started around 9pm last night.

First, I went to Saks Off 5th, which opened at 10pm and I’ve got to admit was the biggest letdown of the night. I was able to get these fantastic Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses for $40, and a Vivenne Tam top, but the problem is, my Off 5th NEVER gets new stuff. Seriously, you can go once every 6 months and you might find one or two new things.

November Beauty Box: Ipsy

I love my monthly beauty box subscriptions. I have three as of the moment: Glossybox, Birchbox, and by far my favorite, Ipsy (formerly known as MyGlam).

Ipsy has been getting better and better just in the three months that I have been a subscriber, while the other two are about to be discontinued. For only $10 you get a lot and it’s actually useful and none of it is FOOD (I’m looking at you Birchbox!)

Anyway, since I have yet to post on Ipsy, I subscribed during my hiatus. Here is my first post on it. I LOVE IPSY! It’s a full bag of makeup, and oh yeah, you get a makeup bag every month.

So here’s this month’s bag. Fabulous stuff for a $10 price tag.

Going down the list you’ve got:

  1. nailtini nail polish in Millionaire
  2. Starlet Cosmetics eye liner pencil in Black
  3. The Balm’s Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow in Matt Batali
  4. Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel
  5. bareMinerals Moxie lipgloss in Dare Devil
and of course the chocolate makeup bag which it all comes in.
 
Plus, every month you get deals if you purchase the products in the bag. For example: if you wanted a Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss from bareMinerals, you would save 10%; If you wanted a nail laquer from nailtini, you would save 25% this month. And its every item that you get a different percentage off.
 
Fantastic deal, right? So if you haven’t signed up for it yet and are still hoping that Birchbox or Glossybox will actually put some quality products in their boxes, I urge you to try this one.
 
If you want to know more about how any of these products perform, just let me know!

I’m Back and I Spend Way Too Much at Sephora

Wow… Have I been MIA?

Yes, yes I have! For good reason though, I work full-time crazy round-the-clock hours it seems like. Then when I get home, want to do absolutely nothing but sleep or sit on my couch and not even turn on my computer.

Please forgive my absence. I can’t promise that I’ll be back regularly, but I will be back every once in a while with something fun. I might change this blog up a bit, just so it fits better with my schedule. If I see something interesting I’ll post it, it may be random things that aren’t necessarily beauty or fashion, but things I enjoy. You’ll see when it happens. :) I miss this damn blog and all that comes with it: checking comments, keeping up with new trends ( I feel so out of the loop). I’ve gotten amazing at Dreamweaver and HTML/CSS since that’s what my job entails, but I do miss fashion. I haven’t read a damn fashion magazine since September.. no lie.

Anyways, so to start things off… I had a lovely trip to Sephora yesterday and took advantage of their VIB weekend special of 20% entire purchase and bought WAYYYY too much.

First is Ciate’s Mini Mani Month nail polish set for $58
