April 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag

I’m pretty sure they didn’t even look at my Ipsy quiz when they chose the products I was sent this month, (or last month from that matter). I didn’t mark that I wanted brushes and both months I’ve gotten a brush. I have no clue why they would keep sending me brushes.

On top of that the nail polish is so ugly. They must think  I am goth to have sent out gray nail polish to me. I’m so depressed even thinking about it. Again, I never said I wanted nail polish.

I don’t even really know what the other items are and they definitely not my color, so I don’t think I’m going to keep ordering Ipsy. Even though it’s only $10, it’s too much to pay to get a bunch of crap I would never use.

March 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag

You’ve got mail!!! Nothing is more exciting than getting actual mail, so I made sure I’d get mail every month by subscribing to Ipsy!! My first glam bag was a bit of a disappointment since there isn’t really anything I’ll actually use.  I’m going to retake my quiz and hope next month’s bag is better.

Colour Pop Trap

You may be asking yourself, “What color lipstick should I wear when I go flying in a private plane?”  I never thought I’d be asking myself that question, but today I had that very question on my mind as I made plans to fly from Rockwall to Terrell in my brother-in-law’s plane.  I decided that Colour Pop Trap was just understated enough not to draw any attention to myself as I climbed aboard this cute little plane!

The flight is about a ten minute flight, which was the perfect amount of time for a first timer like myself.  Strangely, no planes were in the air today.  When we were about to leave, a man came running out to let us know why.  Obama is in town. We had to call in a flight plan to make sure we were safe to fly.   Once we got clearance, we made our way to Terrell, but they gave us some wrong code and when we let them know we were about to land, we found out they were about to call in Secret Service because they didn’t know who we were!! Of course, they worked it out and we landed safely.  I wonder if my lipstick choice was the actual reason they didn’t have send out the Secret Service!! 😉

New Favorite Makeup Remover

Ok, Beauties…. I will admit it. As much as I love playing in make-up, my least favorite routine is removing it. You know by now, that I am simply addicted to the liquid lipsticks. My love for liquid lipsticks is like a two-edged sword, though. I love not getting lipstick on my coffee mug. I love the convenience of applying it and forgetting it, but getting it off is no easy task. Especially without creating an all out war on my lips.

Liquid lipsticks and waterproof mascara go hand in-hand. While I love the look, the convenience, the pay-off, I loathe the end result.

I have dry skin that is exacerbated by the hot, Texas summers and cold, windy winters. So my skincare routine requires lots of moisturizers.

Usually before I begin my makeup removal, I apply vaseline on my lips so the oil has time to break down the pigment of the liquid lipstick. On my lazy evenings, I can be found reaching for makeup remover wipes and rubbing my skin to remove the stubborn mascara or eyeshadow or whatever makeup that decides it doesn’t want to cooperate. I like the convenience of the wipes, but my face feels awfully dry upon removal. I then follow up with a moisturizer or vitamin C serum to return my skin to its natural feel. It’s a step that I dare not miss.

That is until I tried the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I stumbled upon this product by reading a comment on a Buzzfeed article. I went to my local Walgreens and it was on sale! Those who know me well, know I LOVE a sale! So for about six bucks, I bought it.  That evening, I tried it and to my surprise, the makeup removal was easy! I failed to apply vaseline to my lips this time. I was too excited to try this cleanser water out.  I simply applied the micellar water on a round cotton pad and placed on my face. No rubbing nor rinsing was required. My makeup literally lifted off. The product has a consistency of water and is not oily. Micellar_waterproofMost importantly, my face didn’t feel dry at all. I still followed up with a toner and moisturizer, but I didn’t feel like I needed to. When I swiped the cotton pad across my face, I mistakenly got it on my lip. To my surprise, my liquid lipstick came right off! Do you hear me? Right off. No vaseline was needed.

They make two formulas. One for sensitive skin and one for waterproof makeup removal. Try it out, beauties. Do you have a makeup remover that is your holy grail of makeup removers? I’d love to hear from you .

Colour Pop LAX

Colour Pop ultra matte lip liquid is so economical that I decided to be adventurous when I made my order. LAX is way darker than I’d normally wear and I kind of feel like a vampire wearing it!  I doubt I will get this again, but it sure is fun to play around with on a gloomy Saturday!!

I’ve got my eye on you!

If you are looking for a large palette of eye shadow for a reasonable price, I highly recommend BH Cosmetics. The price was so easy to my wallet, that I figured I would be getting something where each color was the size of a dime.  Boy! Was I wrong! Each one of these shadows is about the size of a quarter!! It’s crazy how much you get for your money!!!

Another bonus to purchasing, was that they stay on pretty well! I always use primer before I apply, so I’m not sure if you would get the same results if you don’t use a primer.  There are several different color palettes to choose from, so if you’re new to make up like I am, this is a great buy!

I ordered Essential Eyes on Monday and received them on Thursday, so it’s close to instant gratification!!
