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!

MAY EMPTIES & DECLUTTER

I know this video is early, but i found time during finals week to film. I had a lot of products to the point where I couldn’t store anymore of them. But yeah this month i got rid of some stuff that was either expired or just stuff that did not work for me in the skincare department.

See you guys 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.
