Beauty |October 2018 Ipsy Review

It’s been a doozy of a month, but I always love these posts because I love breaking down products for you to see if you’re getting good value for your money. Subscription boxes can sucker you in because they seem all inclusive and say they’re such a bargain, but sometimes they’re really not worth it. […]

Beauty | Target October Beauty Box

The more time I spend reviewing beauty trends and subscription boxes, the more I realize how much I love simple products. You know, the ones that don’t try too hard to impress with trendy ingredients, don’t go overboard with the packaging, and above all else, have an accessible price. This is my second Target beauty […]

Beauty |Target Fall 2018 Beauty Box

Truth be told, I’ve been on a bit of a beauty box binge. I have an annual subscription to Ipsy, but lately I’ve had an itch to try other ones. TBTH, I feel like Ipsy’s a little flippant with its offerings – sometimes the products are higher-end and give you more bang for your buck, […]

Beauty | September Ipsy Review

THEME: This month’s theme is “Lashing Out,” which can mean anything from some fluffy falsies to bold beauty trends. IMO, this isn’t really a “theme” per se, but at the very least, it’s a cute play on words. BAG: I really like this month’s bag. The outside is a simple black with gold trim at the bottom. […]

Beauty | August Ipsy Review

THEME: This month’s theme is “Selfie With No Filter,” or at least that’s my guess based on the insert card. Some months Ipsy’s really great about conveying what the theme is, like May’s was travel-themed (see review here), or even January’s “Game Face” athletic/goal-setting theme (see review here). Other times, it’s anyone’s best guess, like last […]

Beauty | June Ipsy Review

THEME: This month’s theme is “Flying Colors” in celebration of Pride! The looks featured on the Ipsy website are super vibrant, so if you’re planning to go to any festivals or parades, I’d definitely recommend looking at some of their tutorials. (I believe they’re also on YouTube if you don’t have an account on Ipsy). […]

Beauty | February Ipsy Review

THEME: Unzipped – all about self love and how sexiness is an expression of “you.” I really like the idea behind the February Ipsy bag, because focuses on authenticity and self-love. That being said, this month was a mixed bag of emotions (kind of like my life right now), but with regard to this review, I’m […]

Beauty | January Ipsy Review

THEME: Game Face (hence the rustic photo setting…#diditforthegram) BAG: Ugh, Ipsy, WHY? I love the idea of putting on your “game face” & how that can be inspirational…but this bag literally feels like a gym sock/kitchen sponge hybrid. The materials feel cheap, it makes a squishy sound when you touch it, and can easily get caught […]
