January Ipsy Bag!

Hey Guys!
I wanted to share my Ipsy Bag with you. If you aren't aware, it's a monthly subscription service that sends out 4-5 beauty products for $10/month!


  • SOHO Beauty Crease Brush [Retails for $8.99; full size]
  • Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Frappe [Retails for $13.99; full size]
  • Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Hairspray [Retails for $6; travel size]
  • Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter [Retails for $7; full size]
  • Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil [Retails for $14; travel size]


One thing I've noticed about the Ipsy bags is that you always get way past your monies worth each month!! The bag the products came in was super cute [I love the interior!] and extremely spacious. This bag wasn't as exciting as last month's [see contents] just because I won't be using the hairspray so that's a fail. Another thing I was disappointed with was the nail polish color. I have a love/hate relationship with milky pinks. They never work right for me but I will try this one to see if it's any different. I already have the brush and love it. The body butter smells amazing! I love anything citrus scented and I've been keeping it in my purse to combat dry hands. It's been working great! I've used Argan Oil before [review] so I'm always excited to see that!

You can sign up for a subscription on their site

What do you think of this bag? Are you subscribed? Thanks for reading!

What color are you wearing on your nails this week? Thanks for reading!!

New NYX Round Lipsticks!

Hey Guys!
I recently got some NYX lipsticks from a fellow beauty enthusiast that was purging her collection.

B52 | Femme | Pandora

  • B52[Soft Mauve Pink]- This is a cream finish and would be a great pinky nude.
  • Femme [Bright Pink Red]- I personally don't think of this as having any pink at all. I think it looks like a cream version of their matte lipstick "Indie Flick". It's a hot red-orange in my opinion.
  • Pandora[Violet]- This is a really pretty purple but it's a frost and I don't like that formula of lipstick. Super pretty color nonetheless!


I do plan on ordering some more of these lipsticks because I do like the formula and the pigmentation. You can buy these lipsticks at Ulta or online at or They run anywhere from $3-4!

Do you have any color suggestions that I should try? 

Thanks so much for reading!

Favorite Winter Lipstick No. 1:: MAC Rebel

Hey Guys!
Continuing with my Winter Favorite series, I wanted to introduce you to a lipstick I reach for when I want a dark, bold color.

Rebel is a deep berry color and has a satin finish. The formulation makes it very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. BEWARE this lipstick stains tremendously which helps with the color lasting on your lips. Wear time minus the staining is 3-4 hours with minimal drinking. This is apart of MAC's permanent line and retails for $15.

Do you own this lipstick? Thanks so much for reading!
