Ipsy Glam Bag | October 2014

It's been about 3 months since my last Ipsy post, but now I'm back with another bag!

The theme for October is Beauty Candy. Let's see what treats I got this month.

Totally loving this month's makeup bag! It's so stinking cute!

Ecru New York Acacia Protein BB Cream
A BB cream for your hair? That's definitely a new one. My hair always needs some TLC, and with all the different proteins packed into this baby, hopefully it'll do some good for my strands.

Épicé Purifying Exfoliant
Ipsy knows me well. I love a good scrub. Épicé is a new brand to me, too, so I'm excited to see how I like it. It also doubles as a mask!

Starlooks Lipgloss in Guilty Pleasure
It's so little! I do love miniature things. The color is one of those my-lips-but-better colors. It's also perfect for topping a nude lipstick. Getting a mini lipgloss isn't the worst thing ever, either. I mean, when was the last time you finished a lipgloss?

Figs & Rouge Hand Cream in Rose Berry
This is so perfect for the cold autumn months, especially for those of you who get super dry, cracked skin (ME!). Not sure if this is a scent I would have picked for myself. I was really hoping to get the mango scented one.

Jesse's Girl Mineralized Baked Powder Eye Shadow in Plum Frost
The last thing I got from Jesse's Girl was a pen liner, and I loved it. I hope I love this shadow just as much. The color is so beautiful.

Price Summary:
Ecru BB: 12.00$
Épicé Scrub: 9.70$
Starlooks Gloss: 4.00$?
F&G Hand Cream: 6.95$
Jesse's Girl Shadow (FULL SIZE!): 3.99$

Total Value: 36.64$ USD

Kiss, Kiss.

Beauty Box 5 | October 2014

Hello, everyone! Welcome back! Let's take a look at what I got in my BB5 this month.

October's theme is Effortless Allure.

Nanacoco Nail Polish in 20044 Mermaid Lake
I have never tried a Nanacoco nail polish before. I love trying out new brands thanks to my beauty subscriptions, and this is one brand I've definitely been wanting to try.

Bellápierre Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Stain in Pink
I'm so used to getting loose shadows from Bellápierre, so this is such a fun surprise! I love the color, but I'm pretty sure this will be getting a lot more use as a lip stain rather than on my cheeks.

Chapstick Hydration Lock in Day & Night
This is something I've never seen before. I'm not sure if I just never noticed it before, but I have never seen these double ended Chapsticks. The Day end has an SPF of 12 and the night side is made to refresh the lips.

Lashem Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer
Words can't describe how excited I am about this product! I've been looking at anti aging serums for under my eyes, so to get this in a beauty box just means the universe was listening.

Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool
Why has no one thought of this before?! It's a tiny spatula for digging the last bits of product out of your bottles, jars, and tubes. This is pure genius!

Price Summary:
Nanacoco Polish (FULL SIZE!): 3.95$
Bellápierre Stain: 11.95$
Chapstick (FULL SIZE!): 2.99$
Lashem Serum: 13.60$
EYB Tool (FULL SIZE!): 5.49$

Total Value: 37.98$ USD

Kiss, Kiss.

4 or More Makeup Tag: Wet N Wild MegaLast Lipsticks

I have wanted to do this tag for such a long time, and now I'm finally up to doing it! I'm gonna break this up into a bunch of pieces, like I do with my other tags to give you a better look at the products. Today, we're gonna start with some of my favorite lippies! I have a grand total of 5 of these MegaLast lipsticks. Here they are from least used to most loved.

901B Think Pink
When I first bought this, I used it a lot. Now my tastes have changed, and this bubblegum color just doesn't look as flattering as it used to.

900B Pink Suga
This is such a pretty pale pink! It just washes me out like none other. When I wear this, I pair it with a warm brown lip liner and a peachy gloss.

918D Cherry Bomb
Everyone and their mum owns this lipstick, and for good reason. It's freaking beautiful! This is the darkest lipstick I own, and while I love the color, I don't wear it as much as I'd like because I'm afraid it looks too vampy on me.

908C Sugar Plum Fair
Yet again, another cult classic from Wet N Wild. This is another great fall color, but this is way more wearable for me because it's more of a berry color.

913C Sand Storm
This is my baby. I absolutely adore this shade! It's warm, it's neutral, and it makes my lips look like nude bliss.

Kiss, Kiss.

LA Girl Pro Conceal Swatches and Review

I have been lusting after these for soooo long now. I finally have 2 colors. I ordered these off of Ebay from the seller hit_beauty. They sell them for 1.99$ and ship each for 1.99$. They came in about 4 days from Texas. I live in Indiana. They arrived sealed and in perfect condition.

The first shade is the one I'll be using for highlighting. It is GC984 Toffee, which is a yellow based light/medium brown.

The second shade will be used for blemishes and reddness. It is GC981 Toast, a redder mid-toned brown.

I love the brush applicator, but the squeeze tube is a little hard. These are so incredibly full coverage! I'll definitely be picking up a deeper shade for contouring.

Kiss, Kiss.

All Gone!: Products I've Used Up | Skincare: The Removers

Since I've had this blog, I've been doing a few empties every month, as I have enough for post. But I have a good few products now, and I just want to continue to do new things on my blog. So now, instead of doing several random items to an empties post, I'll do a general block of products tell you my overall thoughts. Let's do this!

Willa Naturals Lavender Face Towelettes

CVS Make-up Remover Towelettes

Proactiv Makeup Cleansing Wipes

Michael Todd Skin Loving Towelettes

La Fresh Oil-Free Face Cleanser

Blum Naturals Daily Eye Cleansing Pads

Out of all of these cleansing wipes, the ones I would absolutely repurchase are the Michael Todd, La Fresh, and CVS wipes. You only needed one of these to take off your whole face because they are so big. They also all had a good wetness to them and they had great scents, especially the Michal Todd wipes. Although, the La Fresh towelettes are a close second!

Kiss, Kiss.
