Memebox Superbox 1

Ooh Memebox, how I love thee! Here as promised is Memebox’s Superbox 1. Are you excited to see whats inside? Well here it goes…

IMG_0041

bubble wrapped Memebox

Well actually we are not there yet but Memebox does a great job packing everything. Every box comes fully wrapped in this bubble wrap and then it goes into another bag as pictured above in the very first photo. I’ve received two boxes thus far and no damage whatsoever to any items!

IMG_0039

the box!

Ok so now we can get into what was in Superbox 1. Reminder… Superboxes are full of full-sized products!

IMG_0037

Ta da!

This box was jam-packed full of goodies. I think I loved everything I tried!

Update: Correction, I do love everything in this box.

IMG_0035

Natural Cocoon Peeling Silk Ball 20ea $5

These little silk worm cocoons are Ah-mazing! I’ve been using two but I really think four is the way to go with these. I was trying to stretch out using them because we get 20 in a pack and I really, really like them. They make your(my) face so soft after using them and its all natural because it’s an actual silk worms cocoon! At first you might think its gross but then your like who the hell cares my face is gonna be all baby soft and without any chemicals, F*%& YEAH! Haha! And don’t worry, the little baby silk worms are not in the cocoons any longer! it’s just the empty hollow cocoon. Haha!

IMG_0029

Recipe by Nature Slowganic Cleanser-Lemon 130g $40.29

Now this cleanser is fantastic. Look at that texture. It reminds me of fluff but it’s not sticky at all. Hubsy thought it looked like cottage cheese and that killed it for me so I went back to marshmallow candy cloud thoughts! Haha! The cleanser comes with that little spatula below the cleanser in the picture above. It just smells so clean and refreshing and I absolutely love, love, love washing my face with this stuff!

IMG_0022

Skin 1004 Cocoon Pore Tightening Soap-100g $20

Do you guys know Jaclyn Hill ? I love her. She is always cracking me up. If you’re not familiar with Jaclyn then you should check out her YouTube channel. I linked it up to her name if you’d like to check her out. So the reason I mentioned Jaclyn was because I was going to say this stuff is Ah-maze-balls! And if you know Jaclyn, you know she says that! Now onto the soap… This stuff claims to minimize and tighten pores. Gently removes dirt and excess oil and has Organic ingredients. I’m not sure about the removing excess oil because I have dry skin, but everything else did what it says it does! My pores are visible smaller or  hidden or shrunken after using this soap, it is great stuff. If you have visible pores go get this soap. If you click the picture above it should take you to purchase this product. Also if you have dry skin. Other bar soaps dry your skin out but I found this bar to be moisturizing and felt nothing like another bar soap I’ve tried before.

IMG_0015

Cheek Room Lip & Cheek – Orange 7g $8.99

I tried this out today just to get a look at how the color was on my cheeks. It was surprisingly nice! A nice coralish color for the cheeks this summer. I put this on my lips over a balm and I really like how it looked. This is a really nice spring/summer color. I can’t wait for it to start getting warmer out!

IMG_0013_2

Plant Stem Cell Moisturizer – T Goddess Cream 50ml $27.50

This is actually a moisturizer! I didn’t realize it for the first couple days I actually didn’t know until I went on Memebox’s website and seen the word moisturizer!

IMG_0012

Plant Stem Cell Moisturizer – T Goddess Cream 50ml $27.50

I’m not sure if you can see this clearly or not but this is a gel moisturizer. It’s clear but has a whitish look to it. Maybe it’s the container? It smells lemony to me. I really like it but I’ve never seen or used a gel moisturizer before so it felt a little funny at first but I always say as long as a product works I’ll use it! This stuff just feels clean and refreshing.  Plant Stem Cell Moisturizer gets great reviews on Memebox as well. I actually noticed most of the items in this superbox had great reviews.

IMG_0010_2

Ddobyul Plant Stem Cell Anti-Aging Solution 30ml $73.15

Memebox’s info card states…

This is a high performance blemish treatment with Yew tree extract that instantly soothes the skin. Its oil-free formula offers weightless hydration and enhances skin complexion.

I really was excited to see this in my box. I love serums like these. I’ve been using the Michael Todd Knu Serum so this is right up my alley. I think I might switch this out from Michael Todd’s for a while to see what this bad boy can do. Haha.

IMG_0007

LJH Tea Tree Mask 3 each $3

Lastly! Can you believe there was this much stuff in this box! I love Memebox! So again lastly, this is the LJH Tree Tea Mask. I used this the other night and it felt so refreshing. I should have taken a picture. Next time. I would totally buy these masks again. My skin felt really hydrated after and it has Tree Tea oil in it and that helps with blemishes and I’ve been having some really bad hormonal acne from this post-pardum medication i’m taking right now but theres not much I can do other then deal with it until I’m done breastfeeding or the depression goes away. Either way I’m stuck with my current face right now so the items in this box were a real delight considering most of them were geared towards clearing blemishes. I’m just hoping to maybe find a product that can help. If not? I just tell myself its better to be happy than to feel crappy! Seriously I don’t know where I come up with this stuff sometimes!

I hope if anything you guys got a laugh or two from this crazy mama! Oh and If you’re wondering if Memebox’s Superbox 1 is still available for purchase? It is! Superbox 1 cost $69.99. But that Serum alone covers the cost of the box then basically everything else is free! All totaled up from the card Memebox provided along with the prices this box has a value of $177.93! So I’d say this was a really nice valued box. After purchasing it blindly would I purchased it now knowing whats in it? Absolutely! I think this was an incredible deal with some great products in it. If your into skin care products like I am,  I would definitely go over to Memebox and pick it up while this is still available.

I know this was a super long blog post. So thank you to anyone that managed to get through the entire post. if you skipped sections, that counts too so give yourself a pat on the back, go have a glass of wine and whip out the credit cards, its Memebox ordering time! Haha!

Love you guys!

Xoxo,

Amers

Let me know what you guys thought. Did you get this box? Are you going to get this box? Have you tried Memebox at all yet?

I have some more subscriptions that I’ll be posting this week.

Disclaimer: I paid for this subscription box with my own money or someone else’s hard earned money because lets face it, I’m poor and I have an addiction to subscription boxes.   Hence the poor part! Haha

Memebox Luckybox 1

Hello Ladies. You are in for a treat today. I received my first Memebox! If you’re not familiar with Memebox let me explain before we jump on in. Memebox is the number 1 Korean Beauty Box and today I received Memebox Superbox and Luckybox 1 today I will do Luckybox 1 and try to get Superbox up tomorrow or the following day but I’ll try to get it posted tomorrow for you all!!!

Currently Memebox has Memebox Global it is described on their site as…

The Superbox is described as…

The Luckybox is described as…

So this review is on the Memebox Luckybox Number 1. This is how the package comes in the mail

IMG_1200

Memebox Luckybox 1

After you tear off the first layer you get

IMG_1201

Luckybox 1

Now let me just tell you that these boxes go quickly so if you want it and see it on the site I would suggest ordering it. Now Luckybox 1 was sold out but was brought back and is still available on the site so if you’re interested in this box I would suggest going by their site as soon as possible. Oh and Luckybox 2 just became available so there is two luckyboxes to choose from right now.

IMG_1204

Luckybox 1

This is our first look at Luckybox 1! If I did it correctly you should be able to just click on the picture and have it redirect you to the site. I am impressed with how much stuff you get with Memebox and I love skin care products so I am in love with these boxes. I actually have two more boxes coming. I order the Superbox 2 and Superbox! Two I think is just makeup and Three is Hydration, I believe skin care products.

IMG_1207

Too Cool for school Aqua Gel Mist 100ml

This stuff smells amazing, even the hubby liked it. He said his face has been feeling dry and this Gel Mist felt nice on his face. This is a full size product that retails for $12. I am going to assume USD because its on the info card Memebox provided. It says Too Cool for school Aqua Gel Mist 100ml. It says it instantly replenishes your skin with soothing hydration, and provides a healthy-looking glow to your skin. I can not say enough good things about this stuff. I love it.

IMG_1208

CNP Laboratories Cleansing Perfecta 50ml

 

Next up we have CNP Laboratories Cleansing Perfecta 150ml ($23). We were given a 50ml sample, which is a pretty good sample if you ask me(have you seen Birchbox samples lately?). This is a 1/3 of the full size and is worth about $7.67.

IMG_1212

Nuganic Customize Pore Control Essence 30ml

This is the Nuganic Customize Pore Control Essence 30ml. This retails for $46 and is full size! It says over time, enlarged pores are visibly reduced, and skin creates stronger support for a tighter, more refined, and smoother complexion.

IMG_1217

Mamonde First Energy Serum 10ml 

Mamonde First Energy Serum, full size is 100ml and retails for $27. We were given  a 10ml sample worth about $2.70. This also came with an extra sample of the serum in a packet and a cc cream in a packet.

IMG_1232

Tonynoly Delight Tony Tint Red 1.5ml

This was a sample size at 1.5ml($1.50) the full size is 9ml and retails for $3. Per Memebox this is one of the bestselling lip tint in Korea. It instantly gives vivid red color on your lip with a single touch. It create a gradient lip known as “Korean Lip.”

IMG_1218

Tonymoly Delight Tony Tint Red lip swatch

Just thought I’d throw this in there. I really liked this, it stained my lips just as it said it would and stayed on for a couple hours but then I washed my face for bed so I’ll have to test the longevity another day.

IMG_1230

Sep Face Lifting Mask 30g

This is Sep Face Lifting Mask 30g. This is a full size product it retails for $14. I can’t wait to try this. I meant to tonight but I forgot. Oops!

IMG_1226

Danahan Bon Yeon Jin Essence 12ml

Danahan Bon Yeon Jin Essence 12ml(about $17) Full size is 50ml and retails for $68. By the way I’m not the best at math so if you are and you noticed a messed up the numbers…call me out. Thats how we learn anyways! haha. So This product looks pretty awesome. I can’t wait to test this bad boy out! I love anti-wrinkle anything and anything anti-wrinkle that actually works. So I’m pumped to test this stuff out.

IMG_1228

Dear by Enporani Bounce Cream Cheese 100ml

I was just shocked. I thought this was a full size product but its not this is 100ml and the full size is 300ml! so our sample averages about $5.50 and the full size is $16. I did get to try this stuff out tonight and it weird, but fun weird. it says this is a facial cream that has a very unique bounce texture from high concentrations of milk serum, also known as Whey. Whey is a good source of natural protein that perfectly hydrates and firms your skin.

It reminded me of mozzarella cheese when melted its really stringy! I liked it!

Ok so Memebox Luckybox cost me I think 23 plus 6.99 s&h. But if you sign up to their site new you get two points, which translates to $2 I believe you can take off your order so thats a plus. Plus when you make a purchase you also accumulate points that can be used for later purchases. Ok Ok so this box was worth $106.17 roughly and again it costs $23. I did purchase this myself and I am not being reimbursed or paid for my opinion. This is all my clever little thoughts! Haha. These boxes are amazing and I am totally hooked. I love how much stuff you get in  this box, its crazy!

Ok I need to get to bed now but if you click on any of the pictures it should take you right over to order the Luckybox 1. Remember Luckybox 2 is available now too.  If you just want to check out the website click here

Oh and let me know what you guys think. Are you interested? Will you be signing up for a box?  I’d love to hear from you!

Love you guys!!!

xoxo

Amers!

 

 

 

 

Ipsy Februrary 2014

Oh boy. So I’m pretty late getting this out. I bought myself a new laptop and it’s really time-consuming trying to get all my accounts downloaded and up to date but enough about that lets jump on in. It’s Ipsy time baby!

IMG_4667

Ipsy February 2014

First look at my Ipsy bag!

IMG_4684

First look

First Item taken out is

IMG_4672

Eyetini Cream Eyeshadow and Base

Eyetini’s Cordial Cream Shadow and Eyeshadow Base. This color was perfect for me. Not only is purple my favorite color but I love wearing purple eyeshadow. As a base I’m not so sure. I tried this out the other day and it faded throughout the day so I won’t use this again as a base. I think I’ll stick with my Stila Paint Pot. But I was happy to try it.

IMG_4679

J Cat Beauty Eyelashes with Glue

J Cat Beauty Eyelashes and Eye Glue. I don’t really wear fake eyelashes. Thanks to my ancestors, I’ve blessed with really nice eyelashes that I’ve passed onto my babies! Every once in a while though I do like just to try out different pairs incase I want to wear them. This way I have an idea of how different pairs look on me.

IMG_4678

Zoya Nail Polish

Zoya Nail Polish. This is my second Zoya nail polish I’ve gotten. The first was a beautiful purple with pink glitter but it went on really thick. So when I got this pretty pink I was really excited but the same problem. It goes on really thick. Does anyone have any suggestions for applying Zoya nail polish?

IMG_4686

Skyn Iceland Fresh Start Mask with Ice Age Mud

The website says…

“This 10-minute weekly treatment polishes and re-texturizes skin to reveal a luminous, youthful translucence for a fresh start.”

Well since I’m late getting this post out I actually tried this out tonight. It burned but i tolerated it for the 10 minutes. My skin now feels really soft and smooth. If you can tolerate the burn I think its worth it. It wasn’t like anything I’ve ever used but one thing I do not like is the packaging. why not put it in bottles instead of this tear away packaging?

IMG_4673

Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini

Last item is Pop Beauty Plump Pout Mini. I didn’t get to try this item out because It had a really bad odor of chemicals? I threw it away and emailed Ipsy Right away. By the next day Ipsy had emailed me that they shipped out a replacement product. So I’m happy that I get a new one because this is one of the items I was really excited about getting so I can’t wait for it to arrive.

IMG_4680

Ipsy February 2014

Well that’s it from here for February. March Spoilers are all ready out and bags should be shipping out next week!

As always Ipsy is only $10/month. If you’d like to sign up to become a member click here.

Birchbox and Us Weekly February 2014 Box

Welcome to the February 2014 Birchbox.

Birchbox and Us weekly teamed up for February’s box. I am a big fan of “Step and Repeat,” this months theme. So I kept the theme going for the pics. You’ll see!

image

Birchbox February 2014

Ooh the first thing I seen was pink, pink nail polish so lets put a pic up and show you guys!

image

Ruby Wing Color Changing Nail Polish in Kitten Heels

How gorgeous is this color? I was beyond ecstatic just for this little puppy. And then…it changes color! I haven’t seen it change color yet because I’m a mom of four kids, three are three and under, so yeah. Haha. Honestly, I’m happy with just the pink but I guess it does change to a more orange color in the sunlight. I’m just going to copy and paste what Birchbox says about how it works…

How it Works

Formulated with SolarActive® Technology, each polish transitions from one shade to another as soon as you step out into the sunlight and come into contact with UV rays. Walk back indoors, and your nails will return to the original color. Each Ruby Wing polish is non-toxic, vegan, and environmentally safe.

So there you go. I can tell you that it goes on really nice and dries really fast. I think this might be my fastest drying nail polish I own and thanks to subscription boxes, that’s quite a lot!

image

Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

Ok, lets just get this out-of-the-way. This was the most disappointing item in my Birchbox. Not because it’s a bad palette but because of this sample. It is extremely hard to try to do an eyeshadow look with a paper palette. I tried but it just ended up stashed in a drawer because I felt bad throwing it away. Now let me just tell you. I am an eyeshadow, wait no, I am a palette freak. I can’t help it. I just need to buy them. If they had made a better way to try these out where I could actually try them out or even less eyeshadows but more product of each that would have been better. I kinda find it insulting that they put this in my box. Seriously Birchbox just stop it. I know its only $10.00/month but just stop. Haha!

Do you think they heard me? Obviously, I’m joking. Haha.

image

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

Keeping with the same brand, Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. Now here is a sample size I can try to see if I like. There is actually more than one use out of this sample. I am pleased! Haha. Oh boy, I’m really cracking myself up tonight. Now I’ve never tried this mascara before. I tend to stay with my Benefit They’re Real Mascara but I don’t mind experimenting with others. That’s how we find newer awesome products. So I was pretty impressed with this little bottle. The wand is huge though, it reminded me of Benefits BadGal Lash Mascara. I liked it but I still like my Benefit, They’re Real mascara.

image

Coola Tinted Matte SPF30 for Face

Next on the block is Coola Tinted moisturizer/BB cream? Not too sure on this one but I really like it. The sample size is nice and I like getting SPF products, especially Coola. I’ve always been happy with their products. This time is no different. Great product. It has a silicone in it so it actually reminds me of Benefits Porefessional but it evens out your skin tone. It doesn’t erase your pores like Porefessional but it does smooth everything out nicely. If i had to choose between the two. Hands down the Coola. Why? Because, for me, the Porefessional doesn’t last on my skin for some reason. I don’t even think it last for an hour. So I feel better spending money on a product that is going to last the whole day or more than an hour!

image

Beauty Protector Protect and Oil

This smells amazing just like the detangler from their line. BP needs to market this scent. I would buy the perfume version of this scent. It smells soooooo good! If you have not smelled this line yet, you need too! I haven’t used much of this yet but I  like the smell and it seemed like all my other oils. I would buy this one though next time because it works just like my others but smells divine!

So that’s it for this months Birchbox. What did you guys think of February’s box?

A big thank you and a FunMamaLikes Product of the Week!

 

I’ve been wanting to blog for years but I felt like I never had anything to say but now with kids and my enormous makeup addiction and let’s not forget amazing subscription boxes I have more than plenty to talk about! Haha! So I just wanted to thank you guys for following me and liking my statuses and commenting. So a big thank you to you from me!
Talking about subscription boxes. I love skin-care products and there is a subscription box that just started shipping world-wide. Not only is it a Korean beauty box but it’s the number 1 rated Korean Beauty Box. It’s called Memebox! I have been researching it and I was going to purchase a box today but I was having trouble? I don’t know I couldn’t figure it out. Oh and this subscription is not like our regular reoccurring subscriptions. You sign up on their site. http://us.memebox.com and they email you when ever they have a new box that will be going out. So you can sign up or not sign up for that box and they will continuously end you a notice when a new box is available and you decide if you want in. But let me tell you these boxes sell out fast! So that means I want in! Haha Have any of you guys heard of it, signed up for a box? I need to figure out how to order it, it’s gonna drive me crazy until I do.
Well that’s was a lot longer post than I intended but I am just so excited about this box and wanted to know if you guys have heard of it.

Ah I might as well just keep going. This week has been horrible! My boys are all sick and have been sick for over a week. Ry Ry is 9 months, D is 2 and Brae is 3 and they are all sick it’s not a pretty site! So since I am FunMamaLikes I thought I’d throw in a Helpful Mom item of the week. this week it has been drum roll please….

20140131-233243.jpg

Not a super fun product but a necessary one if you have kids or pets! Or a husband!

This stuff is amazing I use it on the carpet, in our bed. I use it everywhere and it’s like magic. I love this stuff especially when I have a house full of sick kids!

20140131-233307.jpg

Raspberries

This is me Ry Ry and D fooling around today.
Well it’s off to bed for me.
A big thank you to all my new subscribers!

Xoxo,

MAC Haul featuring Viva Glam Rihanna!

 

Ooh I just got this in the mail yesterday(two days ago now!)and I was so excited to just play with it all but as usual when you have soooo many young kids they pretty much make that impossible, now throw on top that my 9 month, 2 and 3 year old are all sick. Needless to say I didn’t get much playing with makeup last night but I will today because it’s Saturday and Daddy is home so I can lock myself in the bathroom for a while and he can see what my week has been like. Haha. It’s payback time. I’m kidding. Kinda. Ok let’s get into what I got…

20140125-105952.jpg
So there are two more items not pictured above I picked up at Macys so I’m going to include it too because I got them a day apart from each other. So the first thing I got was…

20140126-003715.jpg
Oh yeah let’s start off right…

20140126-003905.jpg
For some reason the first couple of pics came out a little blurry I think? It could be my eyes but I’m not sure. So if it is, sorry 😦

20140126-004036.jpg

20140126-004046.jpg
Hello Viva Glam Rihanna! Look at that babe! It’s gorgeous! I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it I was honestly hoping for a pink lipstick but I wanted the cute packaging so I bought it for that single reason! Haha I know that’s awful but it all worked out in the end. It’s a sparkly red lipstick and I love it.

20140126-004634.jpg
Next babe is MAC Mineralized Rich Lipstick in Dreaminess. Oh my this is like the most perfect pink. I absolutely love this color. Why don’t they make this color in the regular lipstick line? It’s a pretty penny. I think it was $22 for one lipstick! And I’m pretty obsessed with it too so who knows how long this color is going to last because I think I’ll be wearing this everywhere. I wore it to bed last night! Yes I did. I took off all my makeup serum, eye cream, moisturizer, second moisturizer, lip balm, Mac dreaminess, Michael Todd refresher mist, bed! I told you, I’m obsessed.

20140126-004649.jpg
I’m sorry no lip swatches. But here is a hand swatch. Maybe I’ll try and update later with lip swatches.

20140126-004655.jpg
Here is Amber Lights (FYI… We are at 24 hrs later it was like 2am and little D got sick. I had to go handle that. Little man has a double ear infection on top of the stomach bug that is going around. Ry Ry is getting over the stomach bug and Brae is at the same point as D other than the ear infections. It’s been a nightmare in my house for two weeks now. Me last week and obviously I passed on my germs to them I guess the only bright side is that we are not sick at the same time. So it took me two days to write this post. Sorry)

20140126-004701.jpg
I might have an obsession with lipstick lately, I just can’t stop. I feel like I need the perfect color. The MAC Dreaminess is pretty perfect, although the application is a little different from most lipsticks. I think it will just take some time getting used to it. I don’t know why but the lipstick reminds me of someone’s finger? The part that goes on your lips reminds me of the fingernail. Sorry, I know…TMI! Seriously it’s a pink finger! Haha

20140127-000000.jpg

20140127-000008.jpg
Okay so I promised lips swatches if I had time so right above that’s what you are looking at in the pics the lip swatches. I love lip swatches. It’s weird because I can’t really tell what a color looks like when people do lipstick swatches on their arm. So I prefer to look at lip swatch videos. Is that weird? Does anyone else have this problem? So when I research what lipsticks I want to buy I always go on YouTube first and look for lip swatches. It takes me forever usually but the first time I seen Lizzy from WhatWouldLizzyDo you can check her out here if your not familiar with her. I love her! This is another view of her lip swatch.

20140126-004819.jpg
This is a MAC Paint Pot in Quite Natural I picked this up from watching Lizzy too! I’ve used it to contour and I’ll tell you what. I am in love. Not only is it a amazing contour, it’s also a eyeshadow primer and there is a ton of product in here so this is going to last a while before I would need to repurchase so I’m really lovin’ the multipurpose products. Twofers! Haha

20140126-004834.jpg
Getting close to the end. This is just the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15. I’ve been wanting to try this I’ve been shopping around seeing and trying out all the different concealers. Let me know what’s your favorite and what you use it for because concealer a do so many different things but each one has its own area it shines in. Such as this MAC one is great for under the eyes highlighting but my dermablend I use to conceal blemishes. Or Kat Von D’s concealer is actually great for both in shade 16 I use to highlight and shade 18 I use for blemishes.

20140127-101455.jpg
Another item I picked up after watching Lizzy is a MAC Pigment in Vanilla. There is a swatch there on my hand but again no justice for this pigment. It has this beautiful golden gleam when the light hits it.

20140126-004825.jpg MAC266

20140126-004829.jpgMAC219
Lastly I got two new brushes. I love the 266 eyeliner I’m not sure about the pencil brush but I’ll play with it a little more and see what I think but I’m probably going to exchange that one for a different one. It’s just a pain in the butt but we’ll see.
we’ll I hope you enjoyed my little MAC Haul. Let me know what your favorite or must have MAC products are, I’d love to know. Oh, did anyone pick up the Viva Glam Lipglass? Should I go get it? Let me know. I’m on the fence right now.

Ipsy January 2014

I just wanted to apologize I thought I posted this all ready last week but it looks like I didn’t so here you go this is Ipsy January 2014! Enjoy

It took forever for Ipsy to get here this month, seriously why does it take soooo long??. Okay so let’s get into it. As usual, Ipsy is $10/month and free shipping.

20140120-223545.jpg

Ipsy January 2014

This bag was smelly this month. I’ve never gotten a smelly bag before hopefully this will be the last one. It smelled like chemicals. It smelled gross. I didn’t really care for the bag this month anyway so, eh no big deal. I’ll shove some fabric softener sheets in it and hopefully the smell will go away. Or I guess I could wash it too! Hahaha

20140120-224358.jpg

Proactive Acne Fading Pads

The first item is Proactive Mark Fading Pads. I received four samples. I tried one right before I started writing this and this baby burns if you have any cuts, active acne going on it burns. Is it weird that I kinda like it. We’ll I don’t like the sting but at the same time I like to know it’s working. If that makes sense?

20140120-230717.jpg

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-in Conditioner

So this is the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave in Conditioner. That is a mouthful! Haha I just recently ran out of this. I bought the same exact one from the hair salon I go to. I grabbed it for $2.00. I didn’t really think it was great. I wouldn’t repurchase it again but I don’t mind using it since I have it. It’s always good to have backup leave-in conditioner if you have long hair. And I have lots of it. Hair not leave-in conditioner. Just In case there was any confusion there. Haha.

20140121-212237.jpg

Epice Facial Exfolliant

This little baby is called Epice. It’s a purifying exfoliant. It smells fruity, which is always a plus in my book. And it feels very smooth, I mean it has the little beads but they all feel the same size and are very small. I really enjoyed this. I’ve used it twice so far. I don’t know if I explained that texture right. If you got this in your bag let me what you thought. I personally have enjoyed it so far. Actually you know what this reminds me of? The Michael Todd Tropical Fruit Face Scrub. I love them both!

Mica Beauty Tinted Lip Balm and Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Pearl

Sorry I guess I didn’t realize how crappy and unclear this picture was but it’s like 11 at night and I’m in bed with sick baby and hopefully not gonna get sick toddler. (FYI…Everyone got sick!) So I’m super sorry for the crap pic. I’ll put myself in timeout in the a.m. (–I wish) no but seriously sorry. But in this pic we have Mica Beauty tinted lip balm in Natural, which is a nudie lip balm. It’s so smooth I absolutely love it. But if I had one complaint about it I wish it came with a little lip brush. I know it’s a balm but it’s more like a gloss/lipstick that’s hydrating. And I hate getting my fingers messy. I feel like it should be like Caitlyn’s. Her cosmetics come with brushes. That’s the only improvement I’d make.

Also in the picture… Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow pencil in Pearl. I’ll throw in some swatches below

Swatched

I found this color to be more of a mauve. It looks really nice on and feels even better on your lips than you would think. It’s like silky!
nudie color on my lips. But the Smooth shadow swatch right above looks pretty much what it looks like in person. It’s beautiful.

Ipsy Card

I don’t usually show the cards but I thought this months was cute. It has 19 reasons why 2014 will be amazing. I stuck it on my fridge and I haven’t filled out 19 yet but I did get my first one written down.
1. I will not be pregnant this year!
I’ve been pregnant for the past three consecutive years, plus I have another child who is 10 so I am pretty excited to not being pregnant. I have to think about the rest but I do have that hanging on my fridge and the hubs thought it was pretty cute so there ya go! Haha.

That was January’s Ipsy bag! I would like to see more higher end make-up thrown in there. I love skincare so I don’t mind seeing skincare items but I wouldn’t mind more luxury makeup products that I’m interested in trying. You know what they should make? A MAC monthly subscription. I totally would be all over that. Speaking of MAC. I order the Riri Viva Glam Lipstick and some more MAC products today. Maybe I’ll do a little haulerooni when it all comes in.

At $10/month you can’t really beat it. The value of what you get is always more than what you pay.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
