PRODUCT REVIEWS


nyx-lip-butter
NYX Butter Lipstick (in “LifeGuard”)

I was a little hesitant when I pulled this out of my bag this month. I wasn’t sure if the color would be for me but after wearing it a few different ways, i’m HOOKED! I keep coming back to this product. I love that it’s moisturizing, not too glossy and when my lips are prepped right, it stays on for quite a long time. I also like applying my gloss over the top right now while my lips are so dry.

Fun tip from the Ipsy tutorial: Apply straight from the tube for a super bold look OR apply with your finger by tapping lightly for a lighter, more natural look. I LOVE that I’m learning how to use makeup!

Would I buy this again? YES. NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipstick Ripe Berry” target=”_blank”>Check out all of the fun colors available here.


naked-banana-powder

Naked Cosmetics Banana Powder

I was excited to give this powder a try after watching a few tutorials on YouTube but after a few tries I decided that it’s just not for me. I need my makeup routine to be quick and still feel somewhat natural after application so I’m not into super-contouring or layering so many products. Maybe I needed different tools as well to get the correct effect as well. Oh well, fun to try it out.

Would I buy this again? No.

I wasn’t super excited about this item when I first pulled it out of the bag. I suppose I assumed that I wouldn’t be able to see an immediate result with this kind of product. That being said, I loved that it has Frankincense and other natural oils in it! I was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved this! It makes the areas where applied feel light, bright (even tho there’s no color) and moisturized. It feels really nice under my makeup and as a bonus is a great moisturizer for my lips!

Would I buy this again? Yes. I’m interested in trying other products from this brand but they are quite pricey so it would be quite the treat! Here’s their website.

Trust Fund Beauty polish (in “I give good tweet”)

That name…haha! I wasn’t quite sure about the color and didn’t love the lip gloss from this brand last month but I was excited to try another nail polish out! The color grew on me big time and there were NO chips after a week…Wha!? So awesome! Total win!!

Would I buy this again? Yes. Excited to try some other colors soon. They have a color called “game changer” – a neon coral that looks gorgeous! 



lord-and-berry-liner
Lord & Berry line/shade pencil (#221 Black)

 I watched a tutorial on different applications  (including applying to the “waterline”) before this arrived so I was super excited to give them a try. I absolutely love the texture and how smooth glides on! I’ve used it a few times without a primer and with a primer and it definitely requires a primer to prevent it from rubbing off on the lid throughout the day but it’s a winner in my book!

Would I buy this again? Yes. I’d be interested in trying their smudgeproof liner or their liquid as well. Here’s the one I got as a sample. 


That’s it for now! Overall I would rate this bag with 4 stars. The bag is great, I loved all but one of the products so I’m super happy!

Want to try IPSY? Here you go! 😉

Do you use any of these products or brands? Tell me your favorites so I can try them too!

Wishing you a wonderfully glamorous day!

    Hey Sis,

    I’m looking to class it up a bit and was wondering what your opinion is on bedroom candles (types of candles for bedrooms mostly).

    I came back from this most recent foray into the east coast and my room smelled like dirty gym socks. I’ve done my laundry, re-washed my bedsheets and need to rent a carpet cleaner, but that being said I also want to have a nice subtle smell for the bedroom. What do you use?
