May Ipsy Bag Review| It was a disaster…

Jivi Moisturizer with micro-algae (lavender scented)

This has to be the weirdest moisturizer that I have ever used. It comes out, as you can see in the photo green, and thankfully doesn’t stay green when it gets rubbed into the skin. But what I found while using this was that it did not moisturize my skin at all. And while I usually love the scent of lavender in products, i found this to be overwhelming.

Deco Miami Nail Lacquer in the shade Namaste By the Pool

Now this is a pretty nail polish, don’t get me wrong. But nail polish is something that I made very clear on the ipsy profile that I went back and changed probably 3+ times. I said that I didn’t want nail polish and I still get sent nail polish almost every month it seems.

Tarte Cosmetics Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder

This is another thing that I don’t need. Another setting powder. If you guys aren’t aware, I am going a year project pan. And as of right now I have one container of NYC smooth powder that I’m trying to use up, I have 2 containers of it and that works for me. So I haven’t even opened up the container.

Nelson J. Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Mask

This is something that I am keeping from the bag because I am always looking for a hair mask that can tame my frizzy hair.

Lord & Berry Maximatte Crayon Lipstick in the shade Spice

This is something that I always seem to get in Ipsy bags. Lipsticks in pencil form, that are usually neutral shades, which is fine if you get maybe 1 or 2. But in almost every ipsy bag I have received I’ve gotten a neutral lipstick. Which is another reason why I’m pausing the subscription service for now because there is not a way to buy the products that they like through ipsy (there is but, you end up paying an arm and a leg for the products, unlike Birchbox where you can redeem points to get the full-size product that you like).

 

So are any of you interested in these products? Because I plan on either putting these on poshmark to sell or just give them away since they are unused (with the lipstick crayon being swatched on my hand)

So if any of you want these products let me know in the comments!

 

See you in my next blog post!

April Sephora & Ipsy Subscription Unboxings and Reviews

Hope you guys like this video! I think May will be the last ipsy bag that I will be getting (might do a video about it separately)but lately I haven’t been really happy with how much use that I get out of the products that I have received from the service and the fact that most of the brands that I get products from, I really don’t know. So what do you guys think? Should I cancel my ipsy subscription or not? Let me know in the comments.

April Sephora PLAY! Subscription Unboxing

This month’s Sephora PLAY! box items:

Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss in the Shade SPL ($20/ 0.23 oz/7 mL).

On the Sephora website, the shade is described as a holographic candy pink with an iridescent sparkle.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Pressed Powder ($29/ 0.31oz/9g):

On the Sephora website, it is described as a translucent powder that erases the look of pores and imperfections.

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask ($25/ 1oz/30mL)

On the Sephora website, it is described as a multi-benefit five minute facial in a jar that instantly resets the skin while targeting dullness, rough texture, and uneven skin tone.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Perfector Blurring Skin Tint in the Shade 6, Warm Sand ($36/ 1.01 oz/30 mL)

On the Sephora website, the product is described as a revolutionary skin tint that blurs and enhances the look of skin for a perfected complexion.

Miu Miu L’eu Rosee Eau De Toilette ($28/ 0.33 oz or 10 mL travel spray)

The perfume sample that was the fifth item in the box. It has notes of blackcurrant, lilly of the valley and musk.

 

I’ll be filming a video reviewing these products further. So far, I have tried the perfume which smells just like roses, and the lipgloss, which is a nice item but I’m not very fond of lipgloss that much.

All in all, the Sephora PLAY! box that I received this month was really worth the 10 dollars, just for the deluxe size sample of the Fresh Lotus Rescue Mask.

February 2018 Empties + Declutter + possible new channel on youtube?

This is my monthly empties, and also a couple products that i decided to declutter from my collection this month. And I’m thinking of starting a whole new youtube channel soon entirely dedicated to the band KISS, so if you have any channel name suggestions share them in the comments section, along with anything that you’ve used up this month!

xoxo,

Jessica.

January 2018 Empties and Declutter Items | Would I Repurchase?

SmashBox Photo Finish Primer/ Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume

The smashbox photo finish primer was a deluxe sample that i got in an ipsy bag, and honestly I can get the same type of primer from E.L.F. for like around $3-6 so i would not purchase the full size primer. The Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume however, oh i would so buy at least the roller-ball version of the perfume because me and glass container don’t go together. But from the multiple samples i have received of the perfume it would definitely be a repurchase cause i love the subtle sweet scent.

DryBar Triple Sec Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo only last 2 times. The pro to this is that there was no white cast given like when i use the batiste dry shampoo, but it left my hair kind of crunchy, and to be honest the white cast has never bothered me, so I’m sticking with repurchasing the batiste dry shampoo when i need to.

Juicy Couture Perfume Lotion

This perfume lotion! I love the juicy couture scent and i loved this lotion cause then it was like 2 steps in 1, while i moisturized my arms, i would smell like the perfume. Only downside is that you can only get this lotion as part of a set, which i don’t really mind but I’m going to have to wait to even consider repurhcasing the juicy couture set to get this lotion again, cause as of now after purchasing a few things from sephora for my bday in january, i have alot of perfumes to work through.

Skinnutritions New York Age Defy Dark Circle & Puffiness Serum

This is a definite dupe for the garnier one that has the little metal rollerball that you run on your undereyes. This i never really used consistently to see if it gave any results, since i don’t even get puffy undereyes. But you can pick it up at the dollar tree which is a pretty good deal.

Tarte Cosmetics Maracuja Oil

This i finished off because when i opened the bottle there was a crust around the opening and kinda grossed me out that the oil would end up doing that. Since the whole controversy with the brand, I wouldn’t repurchase this, and just because I am working with trying to use up a drugstore oil/serum that i love and know that works with my foundation application. So i wouldn’t repurchase the oil, #1 cause of the shape tape foundation issues, and because there are cheaper options that are available.

Allure Makeup Remover Wipes

These makeup remover wipes i have repurchased multiples time, and once i finish up using up the miceller water in my 18 in 2018 project, I’ll be driving to the 99 cents store to pick up a couple packs of these because they are great. I only have the use one wipe for my face, and it removes waterproof makeup.

Sephora Instant Moisture + Cream

This moisturizer was really nice, but not worth me spending $20+ for a facial moisturizer, but it was nice as a sample.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Loved this deluxe-sized sample, wouldn’t purchase the full-size cause i realize that i like using deluxe/trial sized mascaras if they are high-end, and i usually just purchase full-sized mascaras from the drugstore.

Nicel Daywear Defense Vitamin E Moisture Cream

This was a declutter item because when i opened it after awhile of taking a break from using this moisturizer it didn’t have the same texture as before, and it’s just old. Wouldn’t repurchase because it isn’t available anymore at the local 99 cents store.

New York Color Cosmetics Lipstick (violet shine)

Another declutter item, that went through my declutter series, and somehow missed the trashcan. Just getting rid of it because the brand isn’t available in the United States anymore.

Tarte Cosmetics Marine Boosting Mist

A setting spray from tarte, again wouldn’t repurchase, because of the controversy with the brand, and I love the Wet n Wild setting spray more because this one had an odd scent to it.

Covergirl The SuperSizer Fibers Mascara

This mascara lasted me a long time, and I love it and would definitely repurchase it because it’s surprising, because of the wand. It has a small plastic wand with tiny bristles, but it gives the best volume because every one of those little bristles attaches to every lash.

Sheamoisture Anti-breakage Strengthening Masque

Last but not least, this sheamoisture hair mask. Had to use this up ’cause it expired in august but I wanted to use it in the place of conditioner. Despite being past the expiration date, i found that it did help strengthen my hair against breakage, and it isn’t the expensive at all, so i would definitely repurchase this hair mask.
