When I first saw the swatches for the iluvsarahii and Colourpop collection I wasn’t necessarily wowed by anything. I felt like the eyeshadows were a little predictable and the lip colours were just like most of the colours I already have in my collection. But as I watched more and more videos of different looks with the collection I slowly started to fall in love with the eyeshadow palettes.
The Chic-y palette is really great for everyday use where as the $aucey palette is gorgeous for a more smokey/colourful look. I usually don’t gravitate towards pink and purple shades but the $aucey palette spoke to my soul and I just couldn’t resist picking it up.
Throughout the month of May I seriously broke my no-buy. I spent a little too much money on makeup that I probably didn’t need. But I received my tax return at the beginning of the month so that’s how I justified it all haha.
I tried out a lot of new products this month because of that and I included some of my favourites in this post. Some of these products I had for a while though and I just finally got around to using them!
Every week I love playing around with new makeup products. My biggest addiction is lipstick products. I have way more products than I could ever need. Recently I’ve decided that I need to try to get out of my comfort zone and wear more products on a regular basis. Keeping a weekly lip diary has been a really fun way to keep track of everything and it holds me accountable for wearing more lip products.
I haven’t posted a week in lipstick for a while because I feel like I’ve had a bit of a boring May for the most part. Most of my days are spent just working. I’ve also been using a lot of lip colours more often so I haven’t really tried to branch out and make the most of my collection.
But this past week I had a jam packed fun week so I really wanted to share it with my readers.
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 Ipsy theme is Summer Friday. Ipsy seemed to be going for a very fun pool weekend vibe. The makeup bag was inspired by the best treats for a Friday during the summer. I loved the theme and I think it’s perfect for the season.
I’m a huge believer in the constant use of primer. I never put foundation on without having some sort of primer underneath it. Since I have this huge obsession with primer I am always on the hunt for the ultimate product. I really just want a product that keeps my foundation looking fresh and lasting throughout the day. I don’t think that’s too much to ask, but trust me when I say it’s difficult to find that product.
