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

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.

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!

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

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.

Urban Decay – Naked 3

9 Dec

The launch of this new palette is super exciting!  I love my Naked 2 palette and use it several times a week.  The colors are beautiful and have excellent staying power and the case is strong enough that I have taken it on two vacations.

Here is the new Naked 3.  It has more rosy hues than the previous Naked palettes but all the shimmer you have come to expect.

It retails for $52 and consists of 12 colors, a mirror and a brush.

Here ya go- a swatch comparison for each of the Nakeds.

What I’m into right now – Brown Eye Liner

6 Dec

I received a double ended brown/black liner from Julep a while ago and I got one from Paula Dorf years ago.  I fall in and out of love with this shade, but right now I’m way hard into it.

Big bonus – you can go heaver on the liner for work.

It looks appropriate for fall/winter.

Blends nicely with other browns and neutrals for the season.

Since it isn’t as harsh as black, you can get away with a festive red lip at work as well.  Big bonus…this girl likes her red lips.  MWAH!

How do you feel about brown eyeliner?

Fake Eyelashes – are two sets better than one?

4 Dec

The other day my friend’s eyelashes looked amazing!  I guess she gets complimented all the time and asked what mascara she uses – of course, it’s fake lashes.  But her secret: wear two pairs stacked together.  Like natural looking, thin lashes.  So that they are bold but not as overboard as some of the super thick lashes you find in the store.

What do you guys think?  Have any of you tried this?

Mascara – doin’ it right!

Ipsy November 2013 Glam Bag

3 Dec

The November bag was filled with amazing and not so amazing items.

The Fave: Baked shadow from BH Cosmetics in Aphrodite.

This is really close to MAC’s Cranberry.

I will post a review of the lipstick because it is frighteningly unflattering color. It is the shade of my flesh….so yeah. Why?

Pixi bronzer is a perfect shade for me. It’s great for contouring.

The lip crayon is ok. It is a red, but I’m not sure of the shade, still testing it out.

Starlooks eye liner in Topaz. It’s fun and sparkly.
