Ipsy Glambag for October!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!

Hi friends and ghouls! Halloween is my favorite holiday and my treat for you guys is my review of my Glambag for October. 👻👻👻 The bag is adorable and the products in it are great. There was an awesome variety. Let’s get started!

The bag is this really subtle lace design with almost a suede-like feel. It’s pretty glam for Halloween.

My favorite little detail on this bag is the adorable little Ipsy bat. I love subtle decoration so I thought this was perfect.

Here’s a quick preview of the products from my Glambag this month. There’s an Urban Decay eyeliner, peach hand lotion, Tarte mascara, nail polish, and a Korean face wash. Win!

I loved the front of this card that came with the products. Because hey, witches, werewolves, vampires, mummies, etc… are not responsible for the full moon happenings.

The back of the card explains why they chose the items they did and how it relates to fall.

Okay, I’m going to start reviewing products now. The only swatches I could do this month were for the eyeliner and a nail swatch of the shade of nail polish. Enjoy!

I never use eye pencil liners because my eyes are crazy wet and it bleeds out of the ends of my eyes. I haven’t tried this new pencil at all so I was willing to give it a shot.

The back of the box shows us that we can make this smudgey smoky eye look with this pencil.

There are 41 different colors in this collection! How?! Why?! What?! I had the same reaction when they released all their Vice lipsticks too… It kind of comes off as a sensory overload and I can’t deal with all the options.

This the pen out of the sample card. It has a nice size and the cap is made of metal.

I have the darkest shade. It has a nice look to it. I will have a swatch below.

This is the Water Luminous Jelly Cleanser by JMsolution. It has Hyaluronic Acid in it for deep cleaning and is a Korean skincare product.

This cleaner does turn into a foam and then you just massage it onto your face. Rinse it off of course. 🙂

Next is the Lifted mascara by Tarte. I’m pretty sure this is part of their active makeup line so you can wear it to the gym. I’m not about that life so, I just use it. I’m not a supporter of Tarte after all the security breaches and lack of communication with their fans the last couple of months.

This is just a shot of some quick distribution information and proof that it is “sweatproof” mascara.

The shade is brown. It does look more natural but I prefer black. The formula isn’t stinky either.

This is my favorite lotion scent by Tony Moly. They use actual peach juice and extracts for a fresh peach scent.

This side shows the volume, directions and ingredient list. Wheee!

Also the U.S. official Tony Moly page shared yours truly using their painting therapy masks! ❤❤❤

My last product is a charcoal infused nail polish by Nail Medic. It protects against toxins and restores nail health.

This side of the box shows all the social media platforms that they’re on.

This brand has over 1,000 different colors and textures. It also resists chipping, fading and cracking for 10 days. This product is cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, petrochemical-free, GMO-free, triclosan-free, and VEGAN! 💣💣

You can tag your mani for a chance to win a free nail polish!!!!

Here’s the bottle out of the packaging. It’s a pretty gray color and has 9.33 fluid ounces.

This is flammable so be careful!

Okay this last picture has the swatches of the nail polish and eyeliner!

There they are! I labeled them for you. The eyeliner applied smoothly and stayed on my hand for quite a while. The nail polish dried quickly and stayed on very nicely.

Do you like Halloween? What’s your favorite horror movie or tradition?! Xo

Nomakenolife August 2017 Box!

Hi readers! I apologize for my lack of updates this week. School starts for the little and I had a lot of things to prepare and get ready for. I also have another job other than running this blog so I’ve been loving on this pink cloud of happiness because I love it.

Kinda feeling like Lakitu. Nerdy yet happily floating by with waves of anxiety. 😂😂😂

Also, I’m not sure if you all heard but Beautycon no longer offers their subscription box service so I no longer will be posting about those :/ I always enjoyed those boxes and thought it was worth the money. Anyways, this month’s Nomakenolife subscription box features skin-nourishing soap, awesome smelling lotion, a toothbrush(???), purple eyeliner, and Rune Naito sheet masks. I’ll never complain about receiving too many skincare items because I have sensitive skin and I love keeping my skin clear and healthy. As usual, I have a front and back description of each item and any swatches that are necessary. Enjoy!

I set up all the items from this month in the box for you all! As you can see, all the items are full-size 🙂

And here they are all spread out on my body pillow. I added the booklet that comes with each box to give some detail on the products you received this month.

The first item this month is a toothbrush. I was curious yet confused as to why this was included in the box. Also, I just recently bought a toothbrush so my enthusiasm was a bit low. This is the Candy Faceline Massage Toothbrush.

This toothbrush was created with dentists to not only clean your teeth but massages your mouth with the ball on the other side of the toothbrush. The ball massages your laugh lines and you can use it to massage your lips.

The second item are the Rune Naito Rune Girl Face Masks. Rune Naito is considered one of the fathers of the modern “kawaii” movement. His artwork is inspired by looks from the 1960s.

These masks were assembled in Japan but made in Korea. To use these masks, you first clean your face and apply toner. Next, use a warm cloth to open your pores. After that, take a mask out of the package and leave on your face for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes pass, press the serum on your face and neck.

You get two masks in this pack. Both masks are a moisturizing masks that aid dry skin.

The third item is a tofu soap by Hada Bijin. This soap contains soybean extract and bittern which will help moisturize skin. The addition of apricot seed, yuzu fruit extract, and polyglutamic acid aid in additional moisture.

The soap comes in a basket that makes the perfect soap dish and it includes a foaming net that helps create lather. I’m really interested in this item. 🙂

Next, we have the Lassic Creamy Mint Body Massage Milk. I’ve been using this since my box arrived. I love the fresh scent and how light this milk is. This product has caffiene and orange, lemon, and bilberry fruit extracts to tighten the skin.

This body milk also has Hyaluronic Acid for its nourishing properties. This is a non-sticky and lightweight formula that makes you… tingly.

The last item is a Coupy-Design Gel Eyeliner by Decora Girl. This company is known throughout Japan as a colored plastic pencil maker that has stylish packaging and gorgeous colors.

This eyeliner has a waterproof formula, that is soft and precise in application. The eyeliner has ten moisturizing ingredients to make your looks look fresh throughout the day.

Please note that this eyeliner is non-retractable so only twist a small amount at a time.

Here is a swatch of the eyeliner for you all. I love how pigmented this shade of purple is and the description was correct in saying that it is smooth and very easy to apply.

Okay friends! There is my small summary of all the items I received in my Nomakenolife August box! I hope you enjoyed it! Xo
