Why I didn’t post my February 2014 Ipsy Bag

I love to share my Ipsy goodies. It’s one of my favorite times of every month. This month though, when I opened the mailbox I could tell that something was amiss. The overwhelming smell of nail polish hit me as soon as I opened the box. I took the sticky pink package back to my house and looked inside. I gotta say that while this was one of the better bags I’ve gotten it was also incredibly disappointing.

Empties January 2014

I’ve been saving this just for you. It’s my trash. Literally, I saved garbage just to show you guys (well and to share my opinion on the products). Some of this is stuff I use up and some is old stuff that I found when I was moving my makeup collection to it’s new home (post coming soon) that just needed to be tossed out. I tend to be a terrible pack rat and I will keep things long past their useful time. Let see what I used last month.

Quick Bit: Essence Silky Touch Blush

IMG_0365

As per usual, this was a YouTube influenced purchase. I can’t remember exact channel or video I saw the Essence Silky Touch Blushes on, but when I spotted them on a recent trip to Fred Meyer I had it in my mind that I had to get me one. I’ve tried several eye shadows from the line and a couple lip glosses. I am wild about the mascara I have from the brand. I’ve never tried any of their face products so I was excited to get this home and test it out.

Little LUSH HAUL

So, I’ve had the Lush bug for a while now after watching a couple haul videos from Ciaobelllaxo and Eleventhgorgeous on Youtube. That’s all it took to get me doing some research and checking out the Lush website. The nearest Lush store is a little over an hour away, so it took some planning to be able to get there. I knew that I wanted to check out everything I could so I would know what I liked so I could order online next time and not make that long trip. Let’s see how the trip went eh?

Maybelline Dare to Go Nude

Maybelline is one of my favorite makeup lines. I love the Color Tattoos and several of their mascaras as well as several face products. I will readily admit that I do not know about new limited edition makeup usually until it’s too late. Lately though, being on more blogs and social media like Instagram paid off big when I spotted the brand new Spring 2014 collection from Maybelline: Dare to Go Nude.

Quick Bit: Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

That name is a mouthful. Hoo boy! I usually just say “the blue Covergirl one with the pump.” I have been recommending the heck outta this foundation. If you live under a rock (like I did until recently) and haven’t heard of this foundation you need to get into your car, drive to the nearest drugstore and pick up one. I love this foundation.

Prime Time

So, I am a big fan of face primer, when it does its job. I have tried several different kinds of primer mostly from the drugstore. They all have their own claims and they all perform a little differently. I’m always looking for something that smooths my skin and improves the look/wear-time of my makeup look. I don’t have particularly large pores or fine lines that I want to hide. Nor do I need a primer to keep a makeup look all day. I do however like the really polished look I can get when I wear a good primer. Stay tuned for my thoughts.
