Ipsy July 2017 Part 1&2

It’s that time again! My Ipsy bags have arrived. Ipsy is a monthly subscription that costs $10 a month ($10.83 with taxes in the good ‘ol states of Texas) I subscribe to get two of these bags each month…mostly because of FOMO. (Fear of missing out).  From time to time, I get the same item in each bag, like last month, when I got two of the NYX lippies. This month, I had THREE products that were in both of my bags. It happens and that’s the risk you take getting more than one of these guys! All that being said, let’s take a look!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company

Hey guys! Recently, I had the honor to play with some fun beauty tools from The Vintage Cosmetic Company. I wasn’t able to make it to Cosmoprof North America this year and this was one of the brands I was excited to see at the convention. Since I couldn’t make it, they were so sweet to send me some goodies to try out and share with you guys

Morgan Taylor Summer 2017 Selfie Collection

Since summer is in full swing, I thought it would be fun to look at the summer polishes from one of my hands down, absolute favorite polish brands. Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer has been one of my go to formulas for a few years now! They have amazing, on trend collections and some of my favorite glitter polishes of all time! They launched this 6 shade Selfie Collection just in time for the hot weather!

June 2017 Boxycharm

Hey guys! I hope you’re having an awesome weekend! I’m a little late on posting about June’s Boxycharm. It’s July now and my next box shipped out yesterday. I did want to still share this awesome box with you guys! The theme for June is Downtown Charm and this box was absolutely perfect. Boxycharm is $21 a month (free shipping and they don’t charge tax- at least not in Texas where I live) This is one of the more expensive monthly subscription boxes but with the price tag, you’re guaranteed 5 full size items with a value of at least $100. In some of the $10 boxes, you can get comparable values but it’s a little more of a gamble. All that being said, let’s see what we got!

Beauty Box 5 June 2017

It’s here! I honestly feel bad I haven’t posted the last few months of Beauty Box 5 here but life has been a little crazy! If you’re not familiar, this box is $12 a month, BUT you can subscribe you can get a full year for only $99 and I recommend that deal because math (it’s super cheap!). You get 5 full size and sample sized goodies each month.

Ipsy June 2017 (Pt. 2)

Like I mentioned, I did “re sign up” for my second Ipsy bag and it came with a great bonus item! I got an email that if I signed up, I would get this full size It Cosmetics My Sculpted Face palette and as promised, it came along with my very first delivery!

Ipsy June 2017 (Pt. 1)

While the number of life updates I should be sharing with you guys seems like a never ending list, I thought I would jump back into my blog with something fun and easy: an Ipsy unbagging. I have been getting Ipsy all this time and I’ve had them for almost the entire time they’ve been a thing. I got their second bag ever and took a short break from them after 3 years before resubscribing. For about a year and a half, I actually got two Ipsy bags so that I’d have a better chance on getting items I really wanted. I had mixed success with that but since these bags are only $10, I didn’t feel like it was a bad idea.

Beauty Box 5 March 2017

It’s the first day of Spring! Can you believe it? I certainly can. Texas has been HOT lately and today was no exception. Speaking on Texas heat, Beauty Box 5 is on fire right now! I’ve been a fan of their beauty box for a long time and this year, they are really stepping up their game! Don’t take my word for it, I have an entire BB5 tab where you can see all of this year’s boxes as well as boxes dating back to 2015. If you don’t know Beauty Box 5, it’s a monthly subscription box with 5 beauty items that costs $12 a month. You can get great discounts by signing up for more than one month at a time. Their best deal is a full year for just $99- I highly recommend this option as it makes your box only $8 and some change! If you love what you see in this month’s box TODAY is the last day to subscribe and still get this box! Check them out HERE.

Lilee February 2017

It’s that time again! Like I posted on Instagram, my Lilee delivery has landed! If you aren’t familiar with Lille, it’s a monthly subscription that is $49 a month and comes with beauty and lifestyle goodies with a value of $120+. What’s fun about Lilee is that there is a great mix of things in the box. Often there is makeup and skincare or haircare as well as household items, jewelry and even stationary. There’s always a great assortment to be discovered! If you’re tired off all the subscription boxes sending the same small sample products, I’d recommend checking this one out!

Ipsy February 2017

Happy Thursday everyone! I wanted to make a silly special announcement and let you know that today is the 10 year anniversary of Britney Spears having a breakdown and shaving her head. Apparently there is a Lifetime movie in the works about that and her relationship with KFed and I am soooooo down. But anyhow! Ipsy is here! If you don’t already know what Ipsy is, it’s a $10 monthly beauty subscription. I just started receiving this subscription again after a year break but before that, I received every bag starting with their second bag ever. You get 5 items, generally sample or travel sizes, sometimes full size. You never know but the value is usually pretty good. In the past, I haven’t always received items that felt personalized to me but they do claim to personalize your bag for you. In addition to the items, you do get a little makeup bag and sometimes that are SUPER cute.
