October has been a month mainly of rediscovering or playing around with products that I have had in my collection for a while. I did purchase a few products this month but I really tried to stick to having a no buy month. Over the past couple months I haven’t felt like I had products that were completely my favourites. I had a lot of products that I tried a couple times and enjoyed – but nothing that I was truly loving. That definitely changed this month and I have quite a few products that became a staple in my daily routine throughout the month.
Ipsy is a monthly subscription service. It features 5 different deluxe or full-sized products and a makeup bag for $10 USD per month. Shipping in the US is free and it’s $4.95 USD for Canadian shipping. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for several years now and it’s a lot of fun getting a few new products sent to you every month.
There are some days that I just don’t have enough time to do a full face of makeup, but I often still want to look put together. I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy products that will make my skin look as flawless as it can be.
I put together my five favourite products for a quick and easy makeup routine.
As soon as I saw images of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario I knew that the palette was a must have for my collection. The last makeup product that I need is another eyeshadow palette, I have one too many already – but the colours looked stunning and I already know that I love the formula of the ABH eyeshadows. I was trying to have a no makeup buying month in October but I just couldn’t resist this palette.
Lately I’ve had a lot more free time to be able to try out new masks and use them on a regular basis. I love having time to properly treat and pamper my skin. My skin has been flaring up a little more as well and I’ve been getting more breakouts than usual so it’s good that I have the time to properly treat these issues.
