June Ipsy!

18 Jun


Ipsy! $10/month


Urban Decay eyeshadow in Lounge.



Crown 3 tone blush. Bronzer, blush, highlighter. The bronzer and highlighter are super shimmery. The pink blush color is a lot less shimmery. Can’t wait to try it out!


Be a bombshell cosmetics pout potion in Secret. Pale pink color. I’m not confident this color will look good on me,  but I do like this brand a lot.


BioRepublic face masks in cucumber breeze and in pomegranate crush.


Formula X mini nail polish in like a watermelon color. No color name is listed. BTW the color I’m wearing is Isabella by Julep with Essie good to go topcoat.

This is a pretty good Ipsy bag this month! Yay!

Here’s my Ipsy referral link if anyone wants to sign up for a subscription

Big Lots Finds

17 Jul


I scored a few new makeup items last weekend at Big Lots. I paid $11.50 + tax for these three.


Almay Blush in Natural, Physician’s Formula Baked eyeshadow trio in Baked Spices, Almay Smart Shade Makeup with SPF 15 in Medium.



The Physician’s Formula package says this shadow trio can be used either wet or dry. I tried wetting the applicator after trying the shadow dry first with hardly any color show up. This MUST be used wet, dry is not an option unless you are new to makeup and timid about having any eye color, then by all means apply with a dry brush and it will be a very sheer layer of shimmer.

I applied with wet applicator that is included in the compact, no primer. I also used Physician’s Formula mineral eye liner pencil in Black, then lightly dabbed the smudger side of the pencil across the top of the lash line to smooth out the line. BTW, this eyeshadow lasted all day and night since it was appplied wet.

I have a few other blushes that I love love love, so at first I thought this one was a waste and becsuse it was an impulse bargain purchase. But! I have found myself using the Almay blush in Natural everyday since I bought it. It has a toasty glow to it. The included brush is not very good for blending in the color on my cheeks. I’ve been applying this right before walking out the door to work in the morning, so I swipe it on with the little brush in the compact and blend with my fingers as I rush to my car. I could seed this blush color working on almost everyone. Doesn’t look shimmery when on my skin even though it looks shimmery in the pan.

Big Lots should rename its store “impulse shoppers unite” there’s always a deal in these stores that I can’t resist.

Two Cosmetics Blush and Lip Gloss

7 May


I used code IPSTER to get 25% off plus a FREE lip gloss and FREE shipping at TwoCosmetics.com. In my April Ipsy bag I got the pink “heartache” duo eyeshadow in a matte & shimmer, and I kept checking out their website because I liked the texture of the powder eyeshadow. I almost bought The Mini Daily Palette, but I opted just for “runway” blush, though I almost also bought the “princess” pink color out of curiosity.


I paid $5.50 (including CA tax) total!


Blush in Runway, free lip gloss in Tropical


I don’t know how visible the text is, but they donate a makeup item for each one purchased. They are like the Tom’s for makeup! It’s better than drugstore quality for very reasonable pricing, I almost feel like I cheated with the discount code!

I would definitely recommend this blush. It is a soft, matte formula, not a crazy shade, very wearable.

I own too many lip glosses! This will be used on top of a lipstick, I wouldn’t wear it alone. It is too sheer for me, I like a little more color on my lips. Ill give it another try on its own tomorrow!

You know how I love TheBalm Makeup – They are on sale today at Hautelook.com through Tuesday – 50% off!! Some of these items had sold out when Thebalm.com had their sale, so here’s another chance to get my Down Boy matte blush, for example. Urg – last night I bought the Runway Blush from Two Cosmetics.  I used discount code IPSTER to Save 25% and get FREE SHIPPING and a FREE LIP GLOSS (from April Ipsy bag).
