I have been loving rose gold in everything from jewelry to hair (yes, hair!) Pink tones added to just about anything make me smile. So rose gold eyeshadows hold a special place in my heart. This past holiday I received the beautiful Tarte Greatest Glitz Collector’s set, which you might have guessed, is in a beautiful rose gold and sequined box!
This stunning reusable box opens up to reveal a gigantic mirror and three separate palettes. The bottom drawer opens up all the way (with a little tugging,) to reveal a mini LipSurgence in the color Flashy and their best selling Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara.
There are so many fun new goodies I have to share with you all. However, I like to test drive products multiple ways before sharing my final verdict on them. In the meantime I thought I’d give a sneak peek (◊at the end◊) while reviewing some fun not-so-new goodies.
I’m sure every makeup lover out there will agree that Urban Decay makes great products. The 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is nothing short of fantastic. I got the shades Bobby Dazzle and Revolver on super sale at Ulta a couple months back and have been loving them since. First off, can we take a moment to appreciate the fine tip?
Welcome to my Mean Girls inspired series! As I mentioned in my first post (oh hai) I want to post on anything pink related, because why not?! This week I want to talk about a beauty subscription that arrives in pretty pink packaging… Ipsy!
Not long ago I debated a subscription to either Birchbox or Ipsy, and Birchbox won. I of course stalked many an instagram account to see samples of past boxes and bags and ultimately I couldn’t decide. It came down to choosing Birchbox over Ipsy because the quality of products seemed better. Although, as I should have known, things aren’t always as they seem.
You can read about my first Birchbox experience here, for now let me take a second talking about Ipsy. I really like the idea of getting mostly makeup samples as opposed to hair care and perfume. If I never got either one of these again in my entire life I would be grateful. So Ipsy probably would have been my first choice if I would have known what I was looking for to start with.
You can say the February Pretty in Pink bag left me feeling like I just missed out on something wonderful. After stalking Ipsy’s website and Instagram (yes again,) I realized I would love any combination of makeup samples in the bag options they sent out. I couldn’t say the same for Birchbox, and after that box’s let down (don’t even get me started on March’s box…) I decided I would cave in and give Ipsy a try. Ya know, for all of you curious beauties out there of course! *winky face*
March Ipsy Glam Bag
Did I mention they call each package a Glam Bag? I mean that’s just amazing in itself! My first Glam Bag arrived in the adorable pink bubble wrap packaging Ipsy is known for. All your goodies are inside an actual makeup bag that they create new each month. This month’s theme was Hello Spring! Which featured three different variations of this pretty floral bag. I got the beautiful blue bag with red roses.
