Love it! - Marrakesh Endz [Review]

I received this Marrakesh Endz - Argan & Hemp Oil Therapy - Split End Mender & Preventer (Original Scent) in my July Ipsy Glam Bag. At the time I posted my review, I had not given this product a try. I trusted that since Ipsy has sent me good hair products in the past, that this one must be great as well.

Beauty Box 5 - September 2014 - Sneak Peek

I just recently signed up for Beauty Box 5. They were constantly on my Facebook timeline, so I decided I would give it a try.

They had a coupon code for a free box if you were a first time subscriber, so I entered the code and we will see what comes in the mail.

I have been looking for a new, affordable, subscription service because I feel ipsy has been all over the place lately with the quality and selection of products they have been sending out. I understand $10 is very little to pay to be able to try new items out. However, shipping to Canada with the conversion rate sometimes makes the bag close to $18. Ridiculous for what was sent last month.

Beauty Box 5 just posted this sneak peek for their September box.

As you can see above, all subscribers will get one of these Nicka K - Eye Light Crayons. I'm hoping for a purple or bronze!

The downside of this particular subscription is that there are no surveys to take into account skin type, allergies/sensitivities, makeup likes/dislikes. IpsyMatch isn't the best but at least they can fake you into believing its true!

I signed up for month to month so I can cancel at any time. I think I will have them come for 2 or 3 months before I decide if I want to keep the subscription or not.

That might be the greatest photo, but its all I have for now! In a few months, I will be back home and I will be able to take better photos for everything!

Its been quite a few months since I purchased these, and I have been meaning to write a post about my experience.

August 2014 - Ipsy Glambag! [Review]

The theme of August's glam bag is "Beauty Schooled"

Ipsy - August 2014 - Sneak Peeks!

We found out that all ipsy subscribers would get an Urban Decay eyeliner or mascara.

The liner is the same 24/7 velvet liner that we received a few months ago, except this month it was in purple. The mascara is called perversion. Between the two, I wanted the purple liner because I don't have one, but mascara would be okay too!

Sneak Peek #2 had more of a selection of items. I believe in this post we were to receive 2 of these items.

Here we have Dr.Brandt Pore Refiner, Lord & Berry Kohl Eye Pencil, Coastal Scents eyeshadow quad, Manna K Sheer Glo, J.Cat Eye shadow, and Coastal Scents Blush Duo.

From this spoiler I wanted the Dr. Brandt or eye shadow quad.

Sneak Peek #3 is all lip balms.

We have Jersey Shore Mongongo Balm, Bee All Natural Grapefruit Balm and two of Absolute New York You're The Balm in Grape and Green Apple scents.

I had no preference in this because I would use any of the balms.

Sneak Peek #4 was a bunch of different items again.

Dr. Brandt pore refiner, Paulas Choice matify fluid, Glam Glow, Free your Mind reviving spray, StriVectin, a dry shampoo, and I believe a body lotion.

To be honest, nothing really stood out to me in this sneak peek. So we will see what I got!

Maybelline - Dream Mousse Foundation [Review]

I don't purchase much foundation because I don't usually wear it everyday, or that often. However, I recently decided to try something new, that wasn't going to cost me a fortune to do so. I used to wear a Clinique foundation targeted towards people with dry skin, but my colour was discontinued. I really liked it!

July 2014 - Ipsy Glambag! [Review]

It's probably about time that I do a review on my July glam bag. I finally got my bag when my Dog came to visit me, so I was excited to try everything out right away.
