June Empties!!!! What I Used Up!

1 Jul

How is it July already?   This year is flying by faster then Kim Kardashian changing husbands.  Oh snap!

I went through a lot of products in June.  Check this!

Hair stuff

Matrix Total Results Color Care Conditioner.  This is my current fave.  I’ve been using it for a few months.  I love it….but I’m getting bored.  I’ve been getting interested in TIGI again.  I love how that smells too.

Nexxus Color Assure Shampoo and Conditioner.  This was a Birchbox sample.  Honestly, the samples were so small there wasn’t enough of either product for my hair.  Based on how much I was able to work into my hair, not impressed.   This may be due to how tiny the samples were.  Whatevers…I won’t be buying it.  If companies really want us to fall in love with a product, you need to give us an amount we can actually use.

Fleur de Temps conditioner.  This was another Birchbox item.  Strangely, this came with shampoo of which there was a lot more than the conditioner.  Why?

This claims to be volumizing and it was. It frizzed me out so my hair was huge.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo and Conditioner.  I got this during a recent hotel stay.   I’m not the biggest fan of Aveda, I don’t complain when my room is filled with it.  I like the way this works on my hair.  It’s a fun change.

Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle Leave In.  I loved the way this smells.  It did a good job on detangling.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2014!

20 Jan

Woohooo!  First Glam Bag of the year and filled with some exciting things.  PS.  I took these pictures on my floor and I realized I have the world’s most boring carpet color!  ick

wpid-20140120_093139.jpg

The things I am most excited about – The Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads.  These are 2% salicylic acid which is so great for treating acne and cell turnover.   I always seem to find it in acne medication, so I was psyched to see this.  Used one of these already and will do a full review.  Sorry, I can’t link to the product because I can’t see it on their website.

wpid-20140120_093305.jpg

Épicé Purifying Exfoliant retails for $32 for 3.3 oz.  This is the most expensive product in the bag.  I received a 1 oz sample, so about $10.00 worth of product.  I already used this and will review it soon.

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner.  I love hair products.  yay!

wpid-20140120_093212.jpg

Mica Lip Tinted Balm in Natural.  Pretty color, and it will great on my mom.  So I will be giving it to her.

wpid-20140120_093237.jpg

Smooth Shadow from Elizabeth Mott in Pearl.  This is a highlighter, eyeliner and waterline liner. I’m excited to use this on my waterline.  Putting flesh colored or white liners in the waterline make your eyes appear bigger.  This is a big deal for me since I wear glasses.

Protip-Glasses for nearsighted correction make your eyes look smaller.  Waterline lining with light or white pencils counters this illusion.  Make your eyes pop, girl!

Keep your peepers peeled for the full reviews on these goodies.

Review! Ipsy Glam Bag July

7 Aug

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

July’s theme was beach, baby, beach!

ipsy2

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:

Ipsy5

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.

Ipsy4

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.

Ipsy6

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. 🙂

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?
