My Week In Lipstick #14

My Week In Lipstick #14

Last week was my birthday so I thought it would be a fun week to bring back a Week In Lipstick Post! I used to love writing this series and using it as a bit of a diary for my week – it’s really fitting for the name of my blog. But over the last year my weeks have been a little on the boring side so I wouldn’t always have that much to write about for this post.

My birthday week was a little more jam packed though so I have lots that I could write about! I managed to wear makeup every single day which also doesn’t always happen anymore.

Ipsy Review – January 2019

Ipsy Review – January 2019

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/or 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 was one of the first bags in a while that I wasn’t completely wow’d by right from the start. Ipsy has been putting together my Glam Bags lately with some amazing, high end, well known products. Whereas this month I really didn’t get the brands that I’m usually looking for and I basically had to get them through their new add on program. But I was still really excited to give everything a try. Sometimes when you don’t have any expectations of the products you can start to discover new favourites and find amazing products. It’s easy to get pulled into the hype of all the well known products that this was fun to dive into a bunch of under hyped brands.

I was so excited recently that I was sent the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Epic Lash Primer and Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. I’ve really enjoyed testing out new mascara products lately and I was interested in seeing if a mascara really made a difference for me.

Covergirl Oh Sugar Lip Balm in Caramel Review + Lip Swatches

Covergirl Oh Sugar Lip Balm in Caramel Review + Lip Swatches

Lately I’ve been wanting to get a lot more use out of all the lipstick products that I have in my collection. I’ve been loving testing some of my old favourites and rediscovering products that I completely forgot about. The Covergirl Oh Sugar lip balm is definitely one of the lip products that I basically forgot existed. When it was first released I used it a lot and then I just moved on to the next new thing and forgot about it. I wanted to test it out again and see if it worked as well as I remember it did.

February 2019 Favourites

February 2019 Favourites

Throughout the month of February I spent a lot of time more focused on testing out new products and wearing very minimal makeup most of the time. But there were a few products this month that I just couldn’t get enough out of. I’ve rounded up the products that I just couldn’t put down over the last month!
