Emite Makeup Professional Slant Tweezers
These were great to receive and I gave these to my daughter so she can stop stealing mine. Now I just need a pair for the husband 😄.

theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick
Love theBalm brand but for some reason I was not a big fan of this color just didn’t look good on me.  Now this is my first time trying liquid lipstick and I like the staying power. I did have to put a balm first then the product and it was not as drying as some people claim.  It was very comfortable to wear so I will look into other shades.
Here is what the website says on Ipsy:

“theBalm introduces a truly loyal long-lasting liquid lipstick—Meet Matt(e) Hughes. This long-wearing formula has a comfortable matte finish with no commitment issues. This matte vanilla mint liquid lipstick is stuck on you without feeling clingy!
Long-wearing matte finishComfortable, buildable coverageVanilla mint flavor.”

This product I reedemed with my points.

I’m really glad I picked this product because I’m loving it.
It has a fresh cucumber scent and feels cool on the skin. It left my skin fresh and glowing.

Thanks for stopping in ;).

Hello Beauties 👋
So I stopped at Dollar General this morning and of course I head to the makeup aisle 😍.  I saw these product and thought “Cute”.  Now I have seen this brand before but never have tried them before. 2/$1.00 “What a steal” I picked up 6 eyeshadows and 2 lipglosses. So lets get to the point.

image

Teal Steel 0.12 OZ
This is a very beautiful teal color very soft and pigmented.

image

Reminds me of a mermaid.

image

Wine Shimmer 0.12 OZ
This color is a deep wine matte color.

image

It’s still a very nice dark rich color.

image

image

Blue Mermaid 0.12 OZ

Really like this black frost color and vey pigmented.

image

Golden 0.12 OZ
This gold brown color is my favorite.

image

image

image

Nude Shimmer 0.12 OZ

image

A great highlight color this was just a bit chalky but very pigmented.

image

I did pick up two lipglosses one in Nude and the other one in red.

image

There was a pink color also, these lipglosses are sheer but have lots of color.
Overall not what I expected from cheaper makeup.  Very impressed with these product and the quality.
For this price they are affordable and very worth trying out.  So check your local Dollar General and pick these up and let me know how you like them.  Thanks for stopping in 💛.

September 2015 Ipsy

image

Here is my September 2015 Ipsy.
Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription, just like Birchbox. I think the only difference is that Birchbox has higher end products.  Ipsy has been having some very good product compared to a few years ago.  I still like the products in Ipsy but sometimes I feel that even though they are bigger samples I don’t get use of some of them. I’m still testing Ipsy and it has had very good samples.

image

Octavio Argan Oil 1 fl oz
Very nice sample and I have been using this product so far I’m enjoying it. I have been applying it on my ends of my hair when I get out of the shower and during the day.  This sample size will last me awhile 👍.

image

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream 1 fl oz
I was Super excited about this product.  With fall and winter coming up my skin needs the extra hydration.  This has been working great for me definitely a very good product.  I have been using it every night and before I put my makeup as a moisturizer. My skin feels soft and moisturizing 👍.  e

     Ipsy💛NYX Eyeshadow Trio
These clors are very nice for Fall. The champagne color I feel is not very pigmented and you might want to use a good eye primer to set this.  The lid color is a very nice bronzed color very nice pigmented and the crease colo a dark brown/black.  I will definitely get use of these shadows 👍.

image

Elizabeth Mott Tinted Eye Brow Gel in Medium Dark  0.14 oz
Ipsy nailed tis product to my profile definitely loving this product. With a small applicator this brush is perect for my brows, will definitely get plenty of use👍.

Color City City Chic Lipstick in Je t’aime
This is a nice fall color lipstick very moisturizing and last pretty long.  My only issue is that the lipstick in the tube does not match the bottom of the lipstick.  The color show a mauve color but in the tube is a more reddish color.  It’s still very nice and for being a inexpensive lipstick ( $4.99 ) I really like it.  I would definitely like to try other colors from this brand👍.
