July 2022 Ipsy Bag – Soak It All In
July’s bag is FAN-friggin-tastic! Not just the products – although the products are great – but look at the bag. LOOK at the starfish zipper pull! And the turquoise matches my wall…
When it comes to eye shadow, ipsy usually gives single pans…occasionally a duo with tiny little pans. I was shocked to see a full 12 pan eye shadow palette as one of my product choices this months. I JUMPED on the Trendbeauty Luminosity Eyeshadow Palette – the colors are gorgeous. I wore it yesterday and the colors are creamy and smooth, blending well without a primer. I am in LOVE.
Also in this month’s bag: Complex Culture Kiss Bliss Lip Gloss in “Joy De Vivre” (I was excited about the kiss of tint until I tried it – fairly invisible on my lips); Pear Nova Hand Cream Mini in “Coconut Eucalyptus” (I may have fucked up and put this on my face – I was wondering why it was SO thick…it d’oh!); Pyunkang Yul Highly Moisturizing Essence Sheet Mask; and The Nue Co. Barrier Culture Cleanser (VERY slimy, but okay).
I decided to splurge on a $5 add-on for my bag – the So Pastel Nail Duo, with We are Fluide “Neptune’s Cove” and Law Beauty Essentials “Net Worth How Much”. I thought these add-ons shipped with my bag, but they charged me $1.49 handling and shipped it separately. How is this profitable??? I guess I should stop asking questions and enjoy my cheap nail polish…
I subscribe to the basic ipsy bag for $13/month and Glam Bag X for an extra $43/quarterly. If you’d like to try Ipsy – click here. I’ll earn 250 points if you sign up through my referral link.
October 2020 Allure Beauty Box – Screen Gab
$23 for this???
I was expecting at 4-5 full size products for $23, so imagine my surprise to get this box of tiny little random products.
The only product I’ve been using so far is the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream – I’ve been putting it on my face before I go to bed. It is a very heavy moisturizer, so not suitable for daytime. I definitely WILL use the Static Nails Liquid Glass Lacquer in “Irene”, but it is not spooky enough for the few weeks before Halloween.
Also in this month’s “Screen Gab” box: The Nue Co. Topical C (powdered vitamin C that I am supposed to mix into other face products – way too much work for me); Verso Super Eye Serum (ugh); Sigma Liquid Lipstick in “Venom” (not even full size – rude – and I haven’t been bothering with lipstick since I cannot leave the house without a mask); La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ (I literally just put this on my hands – it is kinda nice); Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads; and Rusk Native Fig Shampoo & Conditioner...just a single use foil pack! What a rip-off!
I’ll give Allure one more month to get their shit together or I am pulling the plug.
The Allure Beauty Box just increased their price from $15 to $23/month. They also offer an option for $250/year – a savings of $26. Sign up via my referral link.
