HI guys I know it has been forever since I have actually blogged, but this year I took on the task of the 25 Days Of Christmas Giveaway, Vlogmas, and a Sims Seasons daily Christmas series, and let me tell you its a lot harder than I ever expected it to be which is why I have been pretty much radio silent over here, but I am back and trying to catch you and myself up on all I’ve been up to.
I received my November Ipsy bag on December 2, (I have to admit while I love these bags I absolutely hate getting them a month late, I feel like since the charge on the 1st of the month they should ship on the 5th rather than the 15th, ok rant over), and I am pretty much so freaking thrilled about everything in it, but first lets review the items in the October bag.
The first item was the Nicole by OPI nail polish and I loved it, you can’t go wrong with an OPI nail polish as they stand up to wear and tear really well but also the color this really dark cherry is perfect for fall and winter, and I actually prefer wearing this matted down with the Essie Matte Finish as it makes it a bit darker and dramatic.
Then we had the Model Co VolumEyes Mascara, this mascara is a toss up, when I first used it it was very very dry and so I tried mixing up the product but it still seemed quite dry. Then I used it every day for the next week and the product ended up being quite wet, to the point that it took 5-10 minutes to dry so you had to keep your eyes down or else you end up with mascara all over your lids. I really hated the inconsistencies of this mascara but I loved how long and thick my lashes looked when I did use it, so I am hoping this was just an issue with it being a sample and shipping different places, after I have used up my current hoard of mascara I intend to buy this and test it out again.
Next up we have the StarLooks Lip Gloss in the color Guilty Pleasure, I loved this so much I am getting ready to purchase a new full size version because the sample is about 2-3 days of being totally empty. The one thing I love is the actual color it works as a nude lip color but it has a hint of pink to it so it doesn’t completely wash out your lips.
The next item is the Epice Exfoliating Facial Wash, this product is amazing!!! The granules in this face scrub are very very fine, so its removing the dead cells, as well as buffing and polishing your skin at the same time, I would totally recommend this, the only down side is I still can’t pronounce the name HaHaHa.
And last but not least is the Rose Berry Fig and Rouge hand cream, I am torn on this as well because of the fact that while it smells amazing sometimes it can feel quite greasy and frankly I cannot stand a greasy moisturizer, I did notice some issues with the product separating so I’m hoping thats what caused the problem because the scent of this product is too die for.
Now onto the November Ipsy Bag…
The first thing is Elizabeth Mott Your So Fine Waterproof Liquid Liner and I was so shocked to see that it is a glitter liquid Liner, I am so excited to try this out and report back on the liner and the glitter effect.
Then there was the J Cat Lip Paint in Red Potion, this comes out very very red and really really dark, it also comes out really fast and liquidity so I will have to be careful when trying this.
Then we have the Temptu liquid highlighter that is a crazy highlight, this is something I can tell you want to use very sparingly.
Then there is Be A Bombshell Cosmetics eye base in Submissive, it looks a lot like the Maybelline color tattoos and it is a really pretty bronze color.
Finally we have Marc Anthony True Professional Moroccan Oil Hair Spray. It seems to be just like regular hairspray but is infused with Keratin and Moroccan Oil.
I can’t wait to try out all of the new products as well as continue using my October products.
