Ipsy Offer | Sunset Monochromatic Collection ☀️

*This set is no longer available, but there are some pretty neat sets currently available.*

Y’all know I love these Ipsy offers, and I really love sharing them with you. I am a super nosy person so seeing what is in sets other people purchase makes me happy, so I just assume everyone is the same way. 🤷‍♀️

Em Cosmetics Infinite Lip Cloud “Faded Clementine ” $16 FullSize Some how I have never tried an Em product, even though I have been subscribed to Ipsy for a pretty long time. From what I could tell the packaging wasn’t too impressive and the products were about the same. From this lip color I have to disagree. The packaging is beautiful, and I love the shade and the light weight formula.

I can not wait to try it out on my lips and update y’all.

Ofra Blush/eyeshadow “country road”$15 I really love Ofra products. Their pressed powders are always so pigmented.

I am really loving the orange blush trend. By the way, the pigmentation is BOMB.

Pink Pewter eyeshadow “Kua Bay” $3.50 Value I have never heard of this brand before. I have browsed their site though. Everything is very affordably priced and seems to be largely vegan and gluten free.

The pigmentation is great. I think this shade is stunning and pretty unique. Orange with a satin finish. Their shadows come in 3 sizes, I think that’s cool. This one is the small.

Dirty Little Secret Eyeshadow “Teaser” $12 This shadow is the perfect warm toned, matte transition shade. I have never tried a DLS shadow, but so far I am impressed. They have a $38 Palette, I am tempted to pick it up.

The formula is so soft. I think I am going to be reaching for this Single a lot. I need to get another magnetic palette so I can start depotting more shadows!

Nomad Intense Eyeshadow “Cohiba” $7.20 I love bronze shadows. No matter how much I want to try colorful eyeshadows, I always reach for neutrals. My boyfriend has even pointed this out and it’s only been around three months we have been together. Granted we were friends for much longer.🤣 The point of my rambling is, I always welcome a new neutral shadow from a brand I haven’t tried before.

Holy pigmentation! Do y’all see that! That’s one swipe! It’s stunning. I am so excited to try this little angle in a look!

Doucce Freematic Blush “Orange Zen” $14.50 Value I think I am the only Ipsy sub yet to get a product from Doucce, until now anyway.

Like I said, I am digging the orange/coral blushes. I will probably get a ton of use out of this shade. Have any of y’all built a palette or whatever from the freematic system? Let me know, I would love to see it.Pacifica Nail Polish “Desert Princess” $8.99 I am trying to clear out my nail polish collection. I rarely paint my nails, so I am trying to make sure all the polishes I own are clean. This one from Pacifica definitely is. I think this shade will be perfect for the spring and summer!

Guys, for $15 I got products valuing around $77!! Is that not awesome!?

Fresh Garden Manuka Honey Nutrition Mask

For some reason my trip to KY destroyed my skin. I am not sure if it was all the junk food or playing with the animals at the animal shelter. But my skin is MAD.

I just want to say, volunteering at the animal shelter with my family was so much fun, a litter of kittens slept in my arms. I wanted to take all the animals home. Leaving them all behind was so hard. We all got emotional me, my 9 year old sister, my 19 year old brother, his girl friend (who is like another sister to me), and my step mom all cried! I just wanted to share that little story!

Back to the purpose of this post!

I got this sheet mask some how from Ipsy, and I really wanted to see if it would nourish my angry skin back to its, somewhat content self.

This mask is 5 free, there are no..

  • Imidazolidinyl Urea
  • Chlorphenesin
  • Mineral oil
  • Colorant
  • Triethanolamine

It is also 3 layers, which supposedly helps to absorb the “essence” into the skin.

It is made of Manuka Honey and violet flower extract to deeply provide nourishment and a moisturizing effect to even out skin tone.

Initial Thoughts:

The mask itself felt very fibrous. I also thought that it smelt a lot like off brand sprite. Not sure why.

The sheet mask fit my face very nicely. I find it difficult to get sheet mask to fit my face shape. I am not sure what’s wrong with my face shape, besides my disproportionate forehead. I think I have what many call a “five head”.

Here is me with the mask on! Covers really everything it need it to!

Thoughts after use:

The mask left my skin feeling very moisturized and it appeared less dull. I am actually very happy with the results!

HOWEVER, I can’t find anything online about this mask. Not the price, no where to order it, but most importantly I can’t find the brands CF stance.

That being said, would I repurchase? I don’t know, can I ever repurchase it? The lack of information scares me, so I may just pass on repurchasing this mask, even though I was very pleased with it.

Thank you SO MUCH for reading. 💕💋

Ipsy Nov 2017 | All you

A few nights ago I had a dream that Ipsy started to include product info and prices on their cards. I am here to tell you that dreams don’t always come true and that the card is still pointless.

This bag though, is super cute. I love the blues and the fabric and zipper seem to be of great quality. 👍

Crown Brush C141 Chisel Blush

I love getting brushes in subscriptions. I feel like I can never have enough. This blush brush is very soft. It is quite a bit smaller than the brush I usually use for blush, but I’ll give it a go.

Skyn Iceland Berry Lip Fix

Skyn Iceland is a brand that I am always glad to try. This lip fix is going to come in handy, I get very chapped lips during the colder months. I have used it once so far and love it. The berry taste is not overpowering and it made my lips tingle a little!

ColourPop Ultra Satin “Calypso”

I love the ultra satin formula, so I was really excited to see this in my bag.

The shade is really nice, I will definitely be getting my use out of this liquid lip.

Tarte Blush “Feisty”

I only have one other Tarte blush, even though I love the formula. I was stoked to open my bag and see this little baby wrapped in bubble wrap. Was really hoping for the Lisa Frank bronzer though.

Carl decided to photobomb my swatch photo. I am a bit concerned that this blush will appear too orange on my fair skin, but I think if I use a light hand it will turn out nicely.

Naked Cosmetics “Mother Nature”

I love Shadow pigments. The color pay off is always amazing. Naked makes some pretty great pigments. Their shadow stacks are pretty pricey and use to be all the rage. Always glad to get one of their shadows!

I am in love with this shade. I cannot wait to use it!

That is it for my Ipsy bag! 100% worth the $10 this month. Not a single dud product!

Ipsy Offer | Superhero Ingredients

*This offer is no longer available, but there are some pretty neat active offers to choose from.*

What is it: A set of mostly face masks, curated by Ipsy.

Cost: $15

Pur-lisse Blue Lotus Seed mask & Exfoliant

I will be honest with you, I never can get through a full size mask before they get gross because I have so many. I prefer these smaller sizes. This mask is meant for all skin types and is only supposed to be on for 10mins. I think I will give it a try tonight!

Kapuluau Coconut Oil

This product is 100% organic coconut oil. It can be used literally anywhere. Hair, body, face, eyes, lips, apparently even teeth according to the back of the tube. I will be getting a ton of use out of his product!

Rodial Dragons Blood Sculpting Gel

This is meant to define the faces contours and improve sagging skin. I am not sure if I will get results from this, as I am only 21, but I will ask someone else if they want it I suppose.

Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk

I have actually really wanted to try this cleanser. It’s made with clean ingredients and I have heard greats things. I am excited to give it a try.

Natural-tox Carrot Mask Sheet

These masks are meant to soothe the skin and the strengthen the protective layer over the skin. Sounds good to me!

Fresh Garden Manuka Honey Nutrition Mask

These Masks are meant to provide deep nourishment and help to even out skin tone. Who couldn’t use that?

Elensilia-IntraCELL Revitalizing Mask

As you can see from the picture, this mask is made with escargot and propolis. Which is snails and bee glue from honey. That doesn’t sit to well with me. This mask is meant to be nourishing and energizing. However, I am going to be passing this along.

Over all, I really think I am going to enjoy this offer! Besides the two products I won’t get use out of.

I still see my self purchasing more Ipsy offers in the future. I wish you got points for purchasing their offers…

Thank you so much for reading💜 What is your must have sheet mask??

Ipsy October 2017 | Spellbound 

What it is: A makeup bag and 5 sample-full size makeup and beauty products.

Cost: $10 a month

I just can’t stay away from Ipsy, I have major FOMO. I am also back on the Boxy Charm waiting list. I have a problem.

This months Ipsy theme is “Spell bound”, super fitting for October. The bag is really cute. It is a Scarlett red with lacing embossing and the zipper is a little bat! I will definitely be using it.

Urban Decay “Perversion” 24/7 Glide On Liner


For god knows what reason, Ipsy still includes a pointless card with no information on it. When will you hear your people Ipsy and make a change!?!

Anyway, this is an eyeliner I have loved for a while, so I will get use out of this travel size.


Look how rich the shade is!

Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relife Eye Cream


I have heard some pretty good things about this eye cream, so I am glad I get to try it out. Hopefully it doesn’t let me down.

Tarts Lifted Sweat Proof Mascara


I am not one to wear makeup to the gym. But, I suppose this would be nice on a hot day.  I love trying Mascara, so I’ll never turn down a chance to try one. I haven’t heard the best reviews for this guy though.

Essence Satin Touch Blush “Satin Coral”


I have wanted to try this line of blushes, I’m glad I got a shade that I will actually wear. I have been loving Coral blushes lately. 


The formula is extremely soft and pigmented. Sometimes I can’t believe how inexpensive Essence is. The drug store has some awesome, inexpensive and cruelty free brands! For another day or so Ipsy actually has an essence offer and I MIGHT get it, probably not though.

Meech & Mia “Beige”


I actually love loose shadows. Getting to try them from random brands is exciting for me. I really want to pick up more from some indie brands.


The shade is really pretty, a lot of shimmer. I can see this being a mess so I will definitely need a tacky base.

That’s it for Ipsy! What did you get this month? Comment below!

My recent beauty empties AKA: The ones that did not get thrown away while I was moving

Hello everyone!

We are going to start this post, with a picture of a delicious raspberry margarita I had today. It is one of my favorite drinks, and empties posts are one of my favorite posts. It seemed fitting.

As my title explains, these are the products that made it through my move a little over a month ago, plus what I continued to use up, up until now. 

In shower products:


Now that I no longer have a significant other #singleswag, I can buy whatever products I want. So I am working even harder on weeding out any products that are not completely cruelty free. It feels good to not be wasting money, and to really be moving these products out of my stash. 

Dove gentle exfoliating soap bar: I always wash my face with a bar soap after I use micellar water, and before cleansing. My grandmother stock piles these. I believe I have a few more left, but I have found a great alternative for my face, in the Nubian Heritage Exfoliating Facial Bar (I believe it is called).

Tresemme moisture rich shampoo and conditioner minis: I have no idea how I even came to own these. Nothing too awesome. Wouldn’t purchase again even if I liked it.

Bath and Body Works Cherry Blossom body wash: I really need help. Is BBW cruelty free?! So far I am thinking it is not. I love this scent and how soft the body wash makes my skin.

Olay Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter body wash mini: I am 99% positive I got this in a pinch me Box ages ago. Did not like the scent. Apparently this is the soap my mother actually buys though. In case you were wondering a different perspective.

Tuscan Hills Vanilla Almond body wash: There was no scent to this. Did nothing for my skin. Pretty sure this came in a Christmas gift set.

Clean and Clear Moring Burst face wash mini: Even if clean and clear was cruelty free I wouldn’t buy this. I didn’t like the little beads in it. Nor did I like the scent. I did nothing to improve my skin.

Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Shampoo: UGH, how I wish herbal essence was cruelty free. So many great scents, and I find that their products actually work. I had used this Shampoo all through out high school. (Which was only four years ago!) Still a bit nostalgic though.

Random beauty products 


Biobelle #primer sheet mask: I have a review for this if you are interested. It was the post before this one. Little hint, I love it!

Dermalogica Daily Microdermabrasion mini: I love this powdery stuff! It actually felt like it removed all the dead skin! Why does the full size have to be so expensive?

Burts Bees Facial Cleansinf Towelettes travel pack: I think these also came from pinchme? I love them. I have purchased them before, may again.

Batista Tropical dry shampoo: I think all the fragrance in this was really bad for my scalp eczema. I do love the original though! 

Hygiene products:


Schmidt’s Rose Vanilla Deodorant: I love this stuff and will be buying it again. 10/10 recommended by me!

Dove men’s mineral sage Deodorant: This was actually sent to my ex to try. But I needed Deodorant so I took it instead. It was nice when I was in need. 

BBW hand sanitizer in peppermint candy cane:  I really dislike this scent, but I had it so I wanted to use it up.

Home fragrance:


Mainstays Cranberry Mandarin candle: My all time favorite scent. I always have back ups of it. It’s a beautiful, fruity scent. And I love it all year round. 

BBW wall flower bergamot waters: I really enjoy this scent. If BBW was CF I would totally purchase it again.

Makeup


Wet n’ Wild Photofocus Concealer: I believe I said in my initial review that this was not my favorite Concealer. That initial opinion still stands. Probably will not purchase against 

Smash Box Photo Finish eye Primer “light”: this was a sample (obviously). I hated it. It seemed like it made my lids crease more. Would not spend the money on it.

Anastasia Brow Wiz “taupe”: I kept the packing for my new one, because my finished one got tossed. But, I will gladly continue to pay the $20ish on this product. It’s the only way I can make my brows look decent!

Alright y’all that’s it for tonight! Thank you so much for reading. What have you used up recently?
