IPSY March 2015 Reveal

Nothing To Disclose I’m trying to get a little more into the habit of posting items I purchase or subscribe to so you have a little idea of what I purchase or indulge in. Today I have my reveal of my March 2015 Ipsy bag.  I have been a subscriber to Ipsy for over a year now, and overall it is a subscription bag I’ve been happy with and I rarely feel like I “wasted” ten bucks on it. The theme of the bag was Floral Fantasy. The zippered makeup bag that came with this months subscription is cute (my boyfriend thought otherwise though..) and came with a vibrant blue with grey flowers that had pops of neon yellow and magenta. NYX Lip Butter in Hunk NYX Lip Butter in the shade ‘Hunk’ was the item I was most excited about.  While it looks dark in the tube, NYX Lip…

Prescriptives Custom Blend Foundation Review

Press Sample Today’s post is a little different than usual.  It’s not just a review on a product, but also on the service used to create the product. Prescriptives has a Custom Blend Foundation Service is an online service and you have a virtual appointment with a Prescriptives Beauty Genius in order to create a foundation that is blended to perfectly match your particular skin tone/undertones so it looks seamless. If you have trouble finding a foundation to match your skin tone, this is PERFECT for you! To start the appointment, my Beauty Genius (Bobby was AMAZING!) needed a photo of me without makeup that was taken in natural lighting.  During the appointment (it was a video chat!) my Beauty Genius asked some questions to get a feel for what I want in a foundation.  Did I want a dewy complexion or matte?  Somewhere in between?  What kind of coverage was I looking for?  What kind of skin…

Mia Mariu Create Your Perfect Canvas Review & Giveaway

Press Sample I’ve said this so many times on my blog, but I am NOT a morning person.  At all.  When I get ready for work, it’s a mad dash to get out the door.  One thing I won’t leave without is a little foundation, some concealer, a little blush and usually mascara.  If I don’t at least do that, I look tired and pretty much like I haven’t slept in days. I was given the opportunity to try out Mia Mariu Perfecting Finish Mineral Line – I was more than happy to give it a try!  I’m not all that fond of liquid foundation, I can use it, but it’s not my favorite and Mia Mariu gives the option of powder or liquid foundation. Here are the items I received.  Lets take a closer look at each one. Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation Primer Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer was designed to…

Pure & Essential Minerals Dead Sea Mud Mask Review

Disclaimer Want a nice treat on a hot Summer night, or even a nice wake up in the morning?  Then I have just the thing for you!  Pure & Essential Minerals Dead Sea Mud Mask is an organic mud mask the gently exfoliates, moisturizer and deep cleanses. The Pure & Essential Minerals Dead Sea Mud Mask has a minty scent to it that gives your skin a great tingle while it’s on, which I love in the morning.  It really gives a nice refreshing feel when you use it. I have been using this mask about 3 times a week for 2 weeks and it feels amazing.  It takes about 10 minutes for the mask to fully dry after applying a thin layer.  Once dry, I used a warm washcloth to gently remove it.  My skin feels amazing each time!  It also doesn’t tighten up your skin like most masks I…
