This Wednesday I’m going to chat about my favorite pink packaged beauty subscription… Ipsy! It’s near the end of the month and May Glam Bags will be on their way shortly. If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy you can read more about this beauty subscription in my last review here.
April’s theme was Dreamers, and funny enough I didn’t get a picture of the fun pink bubble wrapping. As always, your beauty goods come with a bonus “glam” bag, which this month was a tie-dye motif. Not my favorite, but still useful to have. This is going to look like a very blue Pink post… but it’s the thought that counts right?!
If you didn’t notice by now, I am completely obsessed with Target Beauty Boxes. They are always affordable and jam packed with a great mix of useable, trendy, and new finds. So I thought, why not start my new YouTube channel off right, with none other than the Target Box?! If you’d like to watch the unboxing, I included the video below my review!
This months theme was Hello, Sunshine! Continue reading
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.
This Wednesday I’m just going to do a quick shout out to some newly discovered NYX products. I almost skipped this week since the weather is too nice out for me to be on my computer 🙂 You can read my first Wednesday post here where I explain my whole pink themed idea!
A few weeks back I decided to try two NYX lip liners, Pinky and Pale Pink.
NYX Lip Liner Pinky & Pale Pink
First off, the plastic wrapping was on so well that I had an embarrassingly hard time removing it. So much so that on the Pinky liner I had to leave half of it on because I literally couldn’t get it off. I wound up accidentally pulling the cap off and breaking the tip of the liner! You can see in the picture I smushed it back on. Packaging: 1 Me: 0
NYX Lip Liner Pinky & Pale Pink
Smiley Swatch is back with Pale Pink as the smile and Pinky as the tongue 😛
As for the liner itself, I am pleasantly surprised considering it was so cheap. I believe it is $3.49 on Ulta’s website. I picked them up during a sale so they were even less, and NYX frequently goes on sale, so yay!
They glide right on and do their job. Pale Pink is a great nude-y pink color, and as exactly as the name states, a pale pink. Pinky is more of a hot pink color that is perfect for some bright spring lippies!
Has anyone else tried NYX lip liners? What are some of your favorite lip liner brands?
Don’t forget to chat with me on Twitter and Instagram XOXO
Ok I know its “wear pink” but I was taking some artistic liberties. If you don’t reference Mean Girls at least once in your life who are you?? It’s just too good to pass up sometimes!
I was toying with the idea of doing a Wednesday post every week or so, featuring one of my favorite colors… Pink! Spotlighting anything from makeup to fashion to quotes even, as long as it’s pink. Who’s with me?!
Lancôme Sparkling Fuchsia Lip gloss & Intense Fuchsia Lipstick
Ulta Lip Butter in Enticing
Not too long ago I picked up a few things at Ulta when they were having their buy two get two sale. This Lip Butter was one of those products on my to-try list and so I randomly picked this color. At the time there weren’t any descriptions and funny enough since I emailed them about it they kindly have put some up! Continue reading
