Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer In Mai Tai
Nicole by O.P.I. Pretty in Plum
Bloody Mary (red) from January 2013 next to Mai Tai from July 2013
This month’s bag was awesome! I have been traveling a lot this month and I have used almost every item and I have found them all to be very enjoyable. In my opinion Ipsy is the best beauty subscription out there based on the price ($10.00 per month) and the size of the products that are included. I feel that I have been able to sample a lot of products from brands that I normally wouldn’t notice at the store. I love getting this subscription! You can get yours by clicking HERE.
I haven’t posted in a while because I have been thoroughly enjoying my Summer vacation. I’ve been taking lots of pictures of what I’ve been up to and I’m working on posting them.
This is my last Glossybox. I’ve been subscribed for 3 months and I’m just not that into anything I’ve gotten and I think the Glossybox customer service is sub par. I am only subscribed to Ipsy and Julep Maven now and I’ve been toying around with the idea of renaming my blog because I’m just not that into getting boxes right now. I’ve been thinking that I’d rather spend my money on things that I actually want instead of surprises. I guess I have some thinking to do…
Anyway, here is what I got in my June Glossybox:
TARTE COMPLEXION ENHANCING LIPSTICK in Medium to Tan
C.BOOTH HONEY ALMOND NOURISHING DRY OIL MIST
OSCAR DE LA RENTA ESSENTIAL LUXURIES FRAGRANCE SAMPLES
SPARITUAL FAVORITES NAIL POLISH in Home Body
PHILIP B. PEPPERMINT AND AVOCADO VOLUMIZING AND CLARIFYING SHAMPOO
I am fairly pleased with this month’s Glossybox. The nail polish was a pleasant surprise. I really like the formula but the color is not my favorite. I might still use it from time to time if I’m going for a neutral look.
My favorite item in the box was the C. Booth Dry Oil Mist. It smells great and it is very moisturizing without being greasy. I am glad it is a big sample!
I also like the Tarte Complexion Enhancing Lipstick but I am disappointed that I got the Medium to Tan color because my skin tone is fairly light. I don’t think Glossybox pays much attention to the information you provide on your profile. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this problem with Glossybox. The color still works but it is a little darker than I would have chosen for myself.
The shampoo will be useful for the trip I’m taking next week.
I really did not like the perfume samples. I thought it was great that they sent more than one but they are way too smelly! I had them in the little bag in my bedroom and I could smell them in the living room! I put them away in a drawer in case I’m ever feeling adventurous but I don’t think I’ll be using these anytime soon. I am sensitive to smells and wearing any of the samples would probably give me a terrible headache!
Overall, I am happy with the box but I have seen enough of Glossybox for the time being. What do you think about the June Glossybox?
I am so happy that my Target Beauty Box has finally arrived! I ordered this box at the end of April and I was starting to wonder if it was ever going to come! The box cost $5.00 and I’m … Continue reading →
The theme of this month’s Ipsy bag is “On the Wild Side”. I think the leopard print bag is the cutest one yet! This month there were five items in the bag and I got a bonus item for referring two friends. Overall, I am happy with this bag, there are a few things I don’t like though.
Starlooks Lip Pencil in Bare- The color is a little too brown for me but I will find a way to make it work.
J.cat Sparkling Cream Palette- Not a fan, I guess I can use this for Halloween
J.cat Eyelashes + Eyelash Glue- I HATE false lashes! Also, am I the only one that thinks it is gross that these are made out of human hair?
NYX Mosaic Powder in Silk- I love this! I was hoping for one of the Mosaic Powders and I love the color!
Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil- This is pretty decent, I like it!
Bonus Item: BaubleBar O-Ring Stud Wrap- I was a little sad that I didn’t get the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow that they offered last month but this bracelet is adorable! It is much better quality than I expected!
