I haven’t posted in awhile. I hope everyone is doing well. I’m reviewing the September 2018 Ipsy glam bag. Ipsy costs $10USD per month. I have had my subscription for a number of years. You get a lot of bang for your buck. You receive 5 items, mostly deluxe samples. Most months you will receive a full size product. I have changed my profile over the years, and have been very happy thus far.
The value of your bag usually exceeds the $10 cost. Luxie Detail Tapered Blender Brush retails for $20USD. Ipsy is great for sending full size make up brushes. I have accumulated quite a few great brushes from Ipsy .
I got two Avocado Masks from Botanicfarm. The website has the cost in Korean currency, so sorry, I don’t have a price for you. Benefit Hoola Bronzer is a deluxe sample, it is a bit smaller than the $16 mini at Ulta. I’ll be giving this away, as it’s too dark for me.
Katherine Natural Cosmetics does not sell this color by itself. The five color palette is $48USD. I got Expresso, which is a dark brown matte color. I think it will work well on my blue eyes. Eva-NYC Satin Dream Leave in Cream this is a deluxe sample, the full price for 5 ounces is $12USD. My hair is very dry right now, so I’m anxious to try this.
Every month you get a cute make up bag. This one is super cute. Check it out.

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am reviewing Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner-Crayon . I received this liner in either a Ipsy bag or Sephora Play. It’s available at Ulta for $17 USD. The color I got is Hush Hush which is a cinnamon color. I have so many lip products that this pencil was relegated to the nail polish bin on my dresser.
I used this for the first time a a few days ago. This liner is thicker than most pencils. It’s easy to apply and very pigmented. The best part is the attached brush. After applying you simply use the brush to smooth over your lips. It has a matte finish and be worn alone. I topped it with Laura Geller Color Luster Lip Gloss in Sugar Cane , I got in a Ipsy bag, and it’s $19 USD. It’s a peachy rose color.
So I wore this pretty lip color duo to a function on Weds. I had two drinks and never had to touch up my lips. When I got home, the liner was very intact. That was four hours after I put it on! This never happens to me. I’m not a fan of long wearing lipstick as they tend to be very drying. Both the colors are so pretty together.
Hello, and happy Sunday! July’s Ipsy glam bag has some great items this month.
Here’s what I got:
Sundays full size nail polish #45-a pretty light blue shade. I threw on some dark blue polka dots for fun. It’s a 10 free product, non toxic, vegan, cruelty free just to name a few. It’s valued at $18 USD.
Pacifica Coconut Blush in Beaming and Tenderheart full size. The darker shade would be nice for contouring and the rosy shade will look nice on my pale skin.
I got a deluxe size of Juliette has a gun perfume by Romano Ricci. It’s a light floral fragrance which smells very much like my favorite, Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana. From what I read, you can mix this with other fragrances. It faded very quickly after I applied it.
I got some Whipped Argan Oil face butter by Josie Maran. I don’t know how whipped it is, but I’m a fan of argan oil overall.
Last but not least I received Eyeko London Travel size skinny liquid eyeliner in black. I’ll be giving this to a friend, as the black is to dark for me.
Ipsy is $10 a month, which includes shipping. You can change your profile, which I have several times over the years. My July bag was valued well over the $10 I spent. As with all of Ipsy glam bags, I got a shimmery teal cosmetic bag too.
Hello! I just purchased this fabulous Ebanel Ultimate Brightening Peeling Gel from Amazon for $13.25 USD. It’s 4.9 ounces and you use it once or twice a week. It’s on Amazon Prime, so I didn’t pay for shipping.
Simply cleanse your face, leave damp, then use a quarter size amount of product and massage with your finger tips using a circular motion. The dead skin quickly pilled up and was rinsed away. This peel left my skin so clean and smooth. I must say my skin did look brighter after only one use. It moisturizes your skin as well. This peel is very gentle and contains the following:
Stem Cell Extracts, Peptides, Vitamins C and E and natural cotton. It’s phthalate-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free and vegan. What’s not to love?
I’ve used lots of peels over the years, but this is by far the best.
on Aliventures site: Are you thinking about freelancing? I’ve known a lot of writers who spent quite a while in the “thinking” stage without moving forward. It’s very understandable. Launching a freelancing career can feel like an enormous step, and you probably want to get everything right before you begin. I was lucky, in a […]
