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 am super excited about all of these products. I plan to do mini reviews on all of them as I use them this Summer.

Next, I have the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Pink Escape. I have been really into cheek products lately and this looked unique and unlike anything I have in my collection so I had to try it. I really like the color and my first impression is that I am going to love it. I tried it out and it looks very natural on my cheeks. I plan to do a review on some of my non-powder blushes soon and I will definitely include this one.

What have you ordered lately? I’d love to see your latest beauty haul (link below). Have you used any of these products?

Mani Monday: Julep Wendy & Yumi Glitter Jelly Sandwich

I created this look by using 1 coat of Wendy, 1 coat of Yumi, followed by 1 more coat of Wendy. Wendy is described as a barely there watermelon color. Yumi is described as a pink, silver and holographic glitter.

I saw this look on the Sephora website when I ordered Wendy and I decided to try it for myself. I really like the way it turned out.
