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.

Review by Request – BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Sample

19 Aug

This was in my July Ipsy Glam Bag and I just recently got around to using it.  I’m a little late, but these colors are a bit intense, so they needed a special occasion to be worn.

The sample came with a purple, bronze, and gold colors.   The bronze San Fran  and gold Malibu are really sparkly, but pretty.

I was really impressed with this shadow.  It has really good staying power.  With my NYX HD eye primer, I needed to work a little to remove it at bedtime.

The colors are just slightly more sheer than how they appear in the pot.

Swatch on my hand:

BH Cosmetics shadows build and blend well.  I think they blended better than MAC, which I sometimes have a hard time blending perfectly.  But, I do seem to be the only person in the whole wide world with this problem, so pay no attention to me 🙂

The full sized palettes come with 16 eye shadow colors and 4 blushes for $8.95.  This is a steal!

I’m glad I tried this brand because I will buy from them.  I can’t wait to try other products.

Thanks ipsy!
