My Birchbox was amazing this month, Ipsy was less great.


reviews coming as I use these goodies!

What’s in your Ipsy?


Beauty Box Subscription – Update to what we get

16 Jan

Once upon a time I wanted to cancel my Julep monthly subscription and get another beauty box.


This week my wish came true, and now are are both subscribers to Birchbox!  To update, I will now be receiving Ipsy and Birchbox.  These are both $10.00 per month, which means I am still saving money from what I paid for Julep. Julep was $20.00 month.

I may add yet another subscription to my month since I’m used to spending $30.00 and now I’m *only* spending $20.00 HAHA.


Review Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio

26 Dec

I received the Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio  in my December Ipsy.

2013-12-20 09.37.41

My Review :

This is a great little trio palette.  The colors are dark and the payoff is good.  They are pretty glittery, and are good for a party or evening look.

The only gripe I had was that they colors started to slide on the sides and on the bottom ¬†after a few hours. ¬†I wore the look with the NYX HD Eye Shadow Base. It wasn’t awful and I wouldn’t not recommend this product for that reason.

I don’t see the trio on their website anymore, but you can get a 12 shade palette for $24.00, so essentially it’s $2.40 per shade. ¬†Not a bad value.

 I will try again with the Urban Decay Primer Potion to see if it grabs it more.

Here is the look I did:


How do you like Pop Beauty?


Ipsy December 2013

20 Dec


Here is what I received in my December 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag

Ardell Natural Lash.  We are a huge fan of fakies here at Godmother Beauty.  Ardell is one of my go Рto brands of lashes so I was excited to get these.  I usually get a lot of uses out of one pair.  Go-go-Gadget Lashes!

The Nicka K New York in Classic Toupe. ¬†Some people are hating on this color, but I sort of like it. ¬†It’s classic, it’s safe for work, and I will probably get a lot of wear out of it during these dark Winter months. ¬†From Ipsy – ”¬†Formula is free of DBP, Toublene, and formaldehyde. ” ¬†I like that!!!

2013-12-20 09.35.21

Be A Bombshell – The One Stick in Girl Crush. ¬†This can be used on eyes, lips, and cheeks. ¬†I like the idea of a cream blush, so I’m excited to try this for Spring. ¬†I’m not sure how I dig putting cream anything on my lids since I have enough problems keeping them oil free.

2013-12-20 09.36.35

Pop Beauty – Bright Up Your Eyes Trio in Smokin’ Hot. ¬†– Love this! ¬†Such great colors and great pay off. ¬†I will do a full review of this palette super soon.

2013-12-20 09.37.41

NYX Ultra Creamy Round Lipstick in Iced Honey. I haven’t even cracked this open yet because the color is pink. ¬†I am saving this for Spring.

2013-12-20 09.35.59

I’m pretty happy with this Glam Box. ¬†Lovely to have couple of products that I am exited to use in a few months. ¬†Makes Spring seem that much more enticing.

What did you think of this month’s Ipsy?


Review! Ipsy Glam Bag July

7 Aug

This is way late, and I’m super sorry!!!!!!!

July’s theme was beach, baby, beach!


I’ve loved each makeup bag Ipsy has sent me, and this one is no exception. ¬†It would be a perfect vacation or beach kit.

Anywayzzzz, on to the swag:


Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Fushcia Flirt $16 (maybe??) ¬†The products individually aren’t on their website. ¬†It’s $25.00 for a kit of minis. ¬†This looks like a full size product.

I’m not super into this product. ¬†The color isn’t awesome for me. ¬†I use it as my morning lipstick during the work week. ¬†It’s very purple/pink, and it may not transition easily into a fall makeup look. ¬†It’s okay, but it’s not a love.

Also, I prefer the textures of Mirenesse glosses way better than Pop.


Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Moisturizer Sample.   Full size is $36.00

I haven’t used this yet! ¬†I haven’t been in the sun too much, and I’ve been loving my Juice Beauty CC with SPF ¬†SO MUCH. ¬†I don’t want to change right now.

IPsy3  Ipsy1

BH California Collection Sample.  Full size retails for 8.95

I haven’t used this either! ¬†Gahhhhhh I’m a makeup failure. ¬†The colors look really nice, and I love the California theme. ¬†Hollywood is a gorgeous purple.


Big Sexy Hair Travel Size.  I love this hair spray, so I was super excited to receive it.

I like having a travel size in my car, just in case your hair needs a refresher.


Demeter Salt Hair Perfume Oil Roll $10.00

This is my favorite item from this month’s Glam Bag. ¬†I love perfume oils, and I know they are not for everyone, but I was really excited to see this was an oil. ¬†I didn’t know Demeter even made oils. ¬†yay!

This really does smell light, summery, and beachy.  Sort of reminds me of the beach early in the morning.  On a resort.  In Mexico.  BEST.

This is my daily day scent. ¬†I replaced my previous Ipsy find from Pacifica with this Demeter fragrance. ¬†Demeter doesn’t have the best holding power, so I do reapply a few times a day. ¬†But, who cares?! ¬†It smells good. ¬†And if I want a moment to myself, I’m taking it. ūüôā

This was not the best Glam Bag for me. ¬†I haven’t even tried two of the products. ¬†Maybe I will do separate reviews of them once I get around to using them. ¬†I guess I should get moving on sunscreen. ¬†Summer is almost over in Chicago….why??????

Have you tried any of these products?  What did you think?
