Ipsy Review – March 2018

Ipsy Review – March 2018

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.

The theme for this month’s bag was all about being creative. I feel like they really managed to showcase that this month! I loved the bag so much. It’s such a cute design and they sent out markers so that you can colour it in! The size of the bag is also perfect. I’ve been wanting a larger bag and Ipsy finally delivered. I’ve been using the bag a bunch since I received it and it keeps all of my staple makeup products in one place!

NYX In Your Element Shadow Palette in Fire – Review and 3 Looks

NYX In Your Element Shadow Palette in Fire – Review and 3 Looks

When I saw the release of the In Your Element eyeshadow palettes by NYX I knew I needed to purchase at least one of them. The shade selections were so unique on each one and they really caught my eye. I feel like they got a lot of hype at first but that died down fairly quickly. I still wanted to give one a shot and really try it out for a while before I reviewed it.

It was hard to pick only one of the palettes but I decided on the Fire palette because I felt like it was different than just about anything else that I own in my collection. I thought you could also get a bunch of completely different looks out of this palette which I thought made it super versatile! I share 3 of the looks I was able to create at the end of this post!

Makeup And Skincare Empties #4

Makeup And Skincare Empties #4

I’m so excited to say that this is my 100th blog post! I know that doesn’t seem like a huge number to a lot of people but it’s a big deal to me. I started this blog as a way to showcase some of the things that I learned throughout university and college. It was a way to show people that I knew how to create content and market it to a wider audience. But it’s really become a passion of mine lately! I’ve love being able to share all of my thoughts on makeup and beauty here. I’ve been a bit of a bad blogger lately and barely even posted anything here and on Instagram over the last month but I’m trying to plan and be more organized! I’m going to try to post twice a week from now on so I’ll see if I can keep up with that!

Ipsy Review – February 2018

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.

This month’s theme was unzipped. It was all about breaking down the barriers of what being sexy is. They want you to forget about size, shape and age when it comes to how you embrace yourself. I think it’s really cool that Ipsy made this theme something that actually matters rather than some weird theme that doesn’t even make sense like they always do. I loved that the bag was pink and lacy because I really think it goes with that unzipped theme.
