Beauty { Ipsy Glam Bag | March 2014 }

This was the first time I was disappointed with my Ipsy glam bag…I didn’t like the design on the bag, the shade of the OPI nail polish, and the eyeshadow quad. The only thing I’m looking forward to trying is the Pixi primer, and the bareminerals lipstick. Hopefully next month is better!

I’m still keeping my subscription because I really liked what I received previous months, and it’s a great way to try new products and brands. I’ve been trying to be more adventurous with my makeup and this is a great way to do that.

What did you guys get? What do you think of the products I received? Any other subscription services that you would recommend?


Beauty { Ipsy Glam Bag | February 2014 }

I received my Ipsy Glam Bag!! I was very excited when I opened my mailbox and saw the flashy pink envelope in there. The theme for this month was “The Look of Love”, just in time for Valentine’s day! This is the second Ipsy bag that I received and I’m still really happy with what I got. If you have any questions about the products, let me know! The details of the products are captioned under each picture if you scroll through them.

Are you subscribed to any beauty services like Ipsy? Or if you are subscribed to Ipsy, what did you receive this month in your glam bag?

Beauty { Ipsy & Luxe Box }

From a young age, I would curiously watch my mom apply her lipstick. She would then take her lip pencil and draw a little heart on my hand, and I would try my best to keep that little drawing from washing away.

I still vividly remember standing on a chair, on my tippy-toes, in front of a mirror, applying a pink lipstick I had taken from my mom’s makeup drawer, and feeling like such a grown-up.

Only recently has my curiosity for makeup returned. Although I strongly believe in being confident in your natural beauty and not trying to hide behind a thick layer of makeup, I think that enhancing some of your assets, or simply putting on lipstick to make your day a bit brighter, are little perks of being a woman.

To discover new beauty brands and products, I have been really enjoying beauty subscription services like Luxe Box & Ipsy. It’s quite a simple and fun concept: for a fee, you receive a package in the mail with beauty products to try. The fee and the brands you receive depend on the company.

The Luxe Box was a gift from my boyfriend, and I love it. It’s Canadian and the products are a good size and good quality. I just received my first Ipsy Glam Bag and really enjoyed it as well. I like the fact that I get to discover new products and brands, rather than having to buy a full size product.

If any of you were curious, these are the products that I received. So far, I am really happy with both subscriptions. The description of each product is captioned under each picture, so just scroll through! If you have any questions about the specific products and what I thought about them, let me know!

Do any of you have a beauty subscription service? Any recommendations for others that are worth checking out?
