May was such a crazy month for me! I spent the first week of May travelling in BC. I went to Vancouver and Victoria. It was amazing! I was able to spend some time with my dad who’s out there for work and catch up with some of my university friends that I haven’t been able to see much lately! But this meant that my makeup selection was pretty basic and I spent a lot of time just using my holy grail products. I did switch it up a bit and use some newer products and some that I’ve had in my collection for quite some time!
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.
Ipsy is seriously stepping it up when it comes to their bags lately. I really think the quality is a whole lot better and the size is becoming so much more functional. The print on the bag this month was adorable and really got me excited for springtime!
Once a month I try out 5 products and try to use them every single day for a week. This helps to give me a better understanding of exactly how I feel about the products. It sometimes forces me to use products that I rarely reach for or ones that I might have forgotten about.
It’s no surprise that I’m obsessed with Colourpop cosmetics! I spend most of my days on their website adding products to my cart and dreaming about a day that I can afford them all. Lately I’ve been trying to curb some of my purchases. I have a lot more monthly expenses now and can’t spend as much on makeup. So my Colourpop purchases have been way more delayed than they used to be. I really wanted the Colourpop and Kathleen Lights collab the moment it launched but I used my self restraint to wait a little while to purchase it.
My March favourites is going up a little late but I loved so many products last month that I didn’t want to miss out on sharing them. I’ve been super under the weather the last week and I just didn’t get a chance to completely finish this blog post for the time that I would have wanted to.
I was all about the quick and simple makeup throughout March. I really only got around to playing with colour on the weekends. All of the products that I picked out as my favourites were ones that I could not put down and carried everywhere with me in my makeup bag!
