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 – to 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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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 – They’re Real! Mascara by Benefit

29 Oct

I’ve been liking this Mascara since May.  I received a sample in my Sephora Birthday Gift and in September I received another sample  at the LashBash.

2013-10-29 09.44.45

They’re Real! gives you huge lashes.  Check out the evidence here:

The formula wears well and it doesn’t smear.  It does get a bit clumpy when you are nearing the end of the tube.  The brush is plastic with plastic hard bristles that can sometimes scratch your eyelid.   Or that’s just my issue.

Have you tried They’re Real!?

Review: Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara

17 Oct

Good Afternoon, Lovelies!

This little find was in my September Ipsy Glam Bag.  I’ve been so lucky to receive a mascara sample almost every month since July.  I will not be low on mascara for a while.

As always, I must put out the disclaimer that my eyelids are super oily.  Mascara usually runs and smears when I wear it.  Sometimes this happens with waterproof versions.  But sometimes I’m surprised.  Pixi was a good surprise and so is the Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara.

My review:

This has amazing staying power.  But it comes off easily…no tugging or pulling.

I LOVE that this is a cruelty free product.

And I love that it makes my lashes look like this:

I haven’t purchased anything from my Ipsy samples yet, and this is going to be my first.  I like it this much.  I will even pay $20.00 for it, I DON’T CARE.

I don’t have to worry that my mascara is smudged during my work hours, I am confident I don’ t look like a hot mess.   My l ashes aren’t sticky or spikey, or weird. AND I didn’t have to kill a bunny to look cute.

Also, it is super build-able!

It does sort of evaporate after 12 hours, sort of like MAC’s used to.  However, I was able to reapply without issues.

Have you tried this mascara yet?  What is your absolute max $ you are willing to spend for mascara?

Sidenote- I lined my eyes with the Cailyn Gel Liner I reviewed here https://fairygodmotherbeautyblog.com/2013/07/02/review-june-ipsy-box/#more-1248

First Empties Post!

16 Aug

All the beauty bloggers and vloggers always do an Empties post, so why shouldn’t Your Fairy Godmother.

We use stuff too 🙂

2013-08-16 09.56.29

I have two (yes TWO) Dr. Who lunchboxes because I am a fanatic.  As you know, one is my mani kit, and the other is my Empties kit.

I will admit, I got really excited when I finally had enough empties to do post.  On first glance, I use a lot of lotion.

lotion

Yeah, I went there….because this movie is freaking fantastical!

Ok, so let’s see what I used 😉

2013-08-15 18.25.31 2013-08-15 18.23.46 2013-08-15 09.27.08 2013-08-15 09.25.39

Julep Beach Tonic was probably my favorite item from my Empties.  I loved this smell and it was so perfect for summer.

100% Pure as my second fave, and I loved this scent for night time.  It was Coconut, and it was so light and relaxing.

Bath and  Body Works in Rasberry.  So yummy and perfect for spring and summer. I layered it with the corresponding body spray  .

Mountain Ocean Skin Trip was another organic lotion in Coconut.  It was nice, but too light for my dry skin.

2013-08-15 09.23.09 (1)

Apotheke Coconut Jasmine Perfumed After Bath Tonic.  This paired nicely with my coconut scented lotions.  I guess I really liked coconut this summer!

2013-08-15 18.28.19

Argan Oils Face & Body Serum.   I wanted to use this on my face, but ended up allergic.  So I used it on my hair and it seemed to really moisturize it during the winter. I will probably repurchase this again.

And I retired a pair of fake lashes.  I think I wore them since New Years Eve, it was time for a new pair sometime in April.
Elf Lashes for $1.00!!!!!   Seriously.  Go.Get.You.Some.  I know we blogged about these before.  They are so good.
What products have you used up lately????
