April 2014 - Ipsy Glambag! [Review]

My bag came this week and I knew what I was getting from previously checking my glam room. I wasn't excited for most of the bag, but that shiny pink envelope is always so fun to see.

This month we were sent 5 products.

Ipsy April 2014 - Glam Room

Well, I have to say, I'm not entirely impressed with this bag. But then again, I'm sure it could have been much worse.

I really wanted to try the lollitint, city colour cream shadow, even the cailyn or mary kay gloss.

I'm hesitant to try the microdermabrasion cleanser because my skin is sensitive, the lip pencil I really, REALLY didn't want, and the shadow brush - meh. There were other things I would have chosen.

Ah well, now I get to try new products I would never have tried before. And on the bright side, I didn't get lashes!

Let's hope I'm surprised after I try it all.

Garnier Clean + Nourishing Cleansing Oil and Smoothing Cream Cleanser [Review]

So I have seen a lot online about the new clean + line that Garnier has introduced, and was curious to try it out. They have created a line for dry skin, acne prone skin, and oily skin. They were also giving out samples, which I received one for one of the cleaners.

Ipsy - April 2014 Sneak Peeks!

Every month Ipsy will post sneak peeks of what we could receive in our glam bag! This month these are some of the items that are available!

I think April 2014 will be another 4 product bag. Can't wait to see what the bag looks like, and what I will get inside. The theme seems to be "rockstar!"

Shoppers Drug Mart - Eye Studio Sampler [Review]

Usually every year, around Christmas, Shoppers Drug Mart will release a sampler kit. In previous years it has been a perfume sampler kit for women, and a cologne sampler kit for men. In these kits you get about 6 samples (if memory serves me correct), and a coupon for a full size bottle (of your choice) of cologne/perfume that was included as a sample in your pack.

I'm usually picky when it comes to perfumes, so when I have received this in the past, I really liked it. It allowed me to choose what I wanted instead of someone else choosing something I may never wear because I didn't like it.

This past Christmas I noticed Shoppers was selling a mascara version of this sampler pack and I knew I wanted to pick one up as a gift for a friend. While I was shopping around I decided that I wanted to purchase one for myself as well, because mascara is hard to shop for. Trying the samples allows me to try a bunch I may have never picked for myself.
