Sephora Favorites – Give Me Some Nude Lip Fall 2017

Lately the only thing I have been purchasing at Sephora has been their favorites sets. I spend most of my time complaining about sample sized products. But I get so excited when there is a new favorites set posted – go figure. As much as I get annoyed by having so many sample sizes of products I just love being able to try out a ton of different products for such a reasonable price. The one favourites set that I always buy are the ones that focus on lipstick – especially the nude lip sets (who would have guessed that based on my blog name). So when I saw that there was a new one released I purchased it the first chance I could get.

I’m so happy with this specific set because I only own one of the shades. I love when I’m able to try all new products and shades from these. I do already own a few of these products in different shades – but you can never have too many nude lipsticks.

Ipsy Review – July 2017

Ipsy is one of my all time favourite subscription services. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy long before I even had an idea of how to use a majority of the products that I received. It’s an inexpensive way to try out a bunch of different beauty products on a regular basis. Each month, subscribers receive a Glam Bag with 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. The service costs $10 USD, shipping is free within the US and an additional $4.95 USD to ship to Canada.

This month’s bag theme is described by Ipsy as: Our ultra chill (and super adorbs) mascot, Gudetama, makes its modeling debut on your July Glam Bag—perf for stashing all your #ipsyovereasy essentials. I feel like there wasn’t really a theme to this one but I think the little mascot is adorable. A lot of people online were not into the little guy but I thought he looked really fun.

Maybelline City Mini Palette – Downtown Sunrise

Recently during a trip to the States I picked up one of the Maybelline City Mini palettes. I heard a lot of fairly good reviews on these. A lot of people said that Maybelline completely reformulated the eyeshadows formulas so that they were actually fairly pigmented and blendable. I decided to pick up one of the palettes that had my favourite assortment of shades. I really wanted a selection of colours that had a decent amount of mattes mixed in with shimmers.

The City Mini palette in Downtown Sunrise has a mixture of of browns, creams, pinks and a silver shade. This is probably the most wearable one for me. They have a few other palettes in the City Mini collection that tend to have more bold colours or they all seem to be very monochromatic. I considered picking up the bronze shadow palette but I heard that all of the shadows were more on the shimmer side and I just wasn’t really interested in that.

June Favourites

I’ve been super busy throughout the month of June. I spent most of my days running around or trying to catch up on work that I needed to get done. I was going away in the middle of the month for a week so I wanted to try to get all my work done so that I didn’t have to worry about it on my trip. That meant that most of my days were spent wearing minimal makeup if I was even wearing any at all!

But I managed to really fall in love with a bunch of products this month though and I’m super excited to be able to share them with my readers!

This month’s theme for Ipsy was Volume Up. It’s meant to remind us to really speak our mind and to be loud about our thoughts and feelings. I thought this was a super fun theme and I was expecting very loud and out of the box kind of products. But I honestly never feel that the products in the bag really reflect the theme for the month. I usually only see the theme in the monthly bag.
