ipsy – October 2017

This month’s theme is Spellbound. “Everything feels enchanted, mysterious, and…different!”  For my birthday month, this bag is perfect!

If you’re not familiar,  Ipsy is a beauty subscription service for $10/month.  You receive 5 beauty products; some deluxe sample sizes, with the occasional full size product. Everything arrives in a cute zippered makeup bag.

The bag is a gorgeous crimson in a lacy floral print and black accents with a black silky inside. The zipper pull is in the shape of a bat and I am in love with it!

My first impression of the bag was that it reminds me of Dita Von Teese as it has a vampy romantic burlesque look.  ipsy has upped their game with their bags lately.

Let’s get on with what was in this gorgeous bag!

MorpheMe Brushes – October 2017

If you aren’t familiar, MorpheMe is a subscription service through Liveglam that offers $30 worth of Morphe brushes for $19.99/month!  The brushes come in a bubblewrap envelope with a cute little accordion card that has brief descriptions of each brush.  I have been subscribed since February and have received a wide variety of brushes.

This month’s brushes are pink as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Here are some facts from the National Breast Cancer website:

  • One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
  • Each year it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die.
  • Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 460 will die each year.
  • On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
  • Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.

When breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 100%.  Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms.

ipsy – September 2017

I received my September ipsy bag a few days ago! While I am always like a little girl on Christmas when my beauty boxes arrive, it’s these little things that help brighten up my world after this hurricane.

If you’re not familiar,  Ipsy is a beauty subscription service for $10/month.  You receive 5 beauty products; some deluxe sample sizes, with the occasional full size product. Everything arrives in a cute zippered makeup bag.

This month’s bag is a textured faux leather black bag with a gold accent and the ipsy logo imprinted in gold on the tassel pull. The inside is a gorgeous satin purply/blue.  I am living for this month’s bag!

This month’s theme is Makeup is Art (All links will open in a new window):

Total box value: $143.49  WOW!

I have the Convertible Brow in 01 Dark Hair.  I received it in a beauty box, and I LOVE it! I’m not all that good in the brow department and this product makes me look as if I am.  I just dust on a light coating of the dark powder, spoolie it through, add some brow gel and my brows look amazing.  I use it every day with The BrowGal brow brush.  They’re both great products.

That brush!  I have wanted a paddle brush since I first saw Tati use one in a tutorial! I am excited to use this brush!  I tossed the lid because I won’t use it and it annoyed me trying to put it back on.  I’m far too impatient for lids. I’ll be using the brush tomorrow and reviewing it soon!

I am diggin’ the highlight/contour palette (the colors looks gorgeous!), as well as the liquid highlight!  I don’t contour often, but I highlight err’day.

Overall, I am happy with this month’s box!  Boxycharm hasn’t had any misses for me since I’ve subscribed over 6 months ago.

Ipsy – May Unbagging

I came home yesterday to my May Ipsy bag!  I love coming home to packages containing my favorite things: makeup/beauty products!

If you’re not familiar, Ipsy is a beauty subscription service for $10/month.  You receive 5 beauty products; some deluxe sample sizes, with the occasional full size product. Everything arrives in a cute zippered makeup bag.

This month’s bag, again, is the cutest!  It’s a water resistant clear plastic bag decorated with the coolest treat ever – ice cream! I love how the zipper pull always has the Ipsy logo.  ❤

This month’s theme is Summer!  There are 93 days, 15 hours, and 47 minutes of summer!

The pur~lisse BB cream is the top swatch with the Urban Decay highlight to the left of the Mellow matte lipstick in Nude. The highlight is pretty, the lipstick is creamy and the BB cream looks to be in the perfect shade for my fair skin tone. I don’t think I can use the leave-in conditioner because it has coconut oil (I’m allergic), but I may try to just spritz it on the ends without getting it on my skin.

Let’s get to the goodies! (All links will open in a new window):

I am pretty happy with this month’s Ipsy bag and products.  I needed a new mascara for my travel cosmetic bag and the little Superhero mascara will fit perfectly! I’ll probably toss in the BB cream, also.  🙂
