I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve did an Ipsy post!
And I know we are in the first week of November. *Thhbbbbt*
I was away in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania for most of September at QVC with The Boyfriend. And October was spent with my parents in Albuquerque. New Mexico. Got home 5 days ago. As I write this, I’m back in Pennsylvania to spend time with The Boyfriend while he does his thing at, you guessed it QVC. There’s a whole post about The Q. It’s freaking amazeballs. I might have makeup girl fangirled a couple times. It was totally warranted.
Back to task. IPSY!
Let’s light this candle!
This month’s theme Alter Ego. The bag itself is pretty gosh darn swell. One side is black shiny pvc and the other is faux leather gold. I’ll be getting use out of this one. One of Ipsy’s more elegant looking bags. Perfect companion to the quilted black shiny bag from…. last year?
I’m so tickled they included a liquid lipstick. I luuuuurve them. The color of this one is beautiful. I’m a total fan of the rosy nudey browny colors that have been recently making a resurgence. We all know that The Balm’s products are top notch. The scent/flavor is Mint Chocolate Chip. Or as I smell it… Andes Mint Chip Cookies. I might have to look into other colors, because the texture is wonderful. (Dang, I’m such a sucker for matte lipsticks.)
Second Item- Nourish Organic’s Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum-
This isn’t the first time we’ve received an item for Nourish Organic. This serum is made with apricots and rose hips. Since, I’m not as young as I used to be I’ve gotten more into serums. The more hydration my skin has the happier it seems to be. I like the texture. iI’s almost velvety and not shiny on the skin. The packaging doesn’t match the product. It’s a thinner serum and since it’s in this type of type… it’s rather messy for klutzes like me. It looks like the full size comes in a handy dandy pump! YAY!
Third Item- Skone Cosmetics Pretty Eyes Eyeliner in Plum –
This eyeliner, I totally think could double as lipliner. It’s purple-y pinky. And incredibly smooth. And I don’t have any liners this color.
Fourth Item- Dose of Color Nail Polish Pill in Stormy–
I was excited to try this one. It’s cool, dark, smokey grape-y purple. In the sun as a faint shimmer. It’s a three coater for me, but that’s okay… It applies smoothly and dries very quickly. What I don’t like is the wear time, 21/2 days. I didn’t do much each either. I packed and went to a Halloween Party. Waaaannnnnnnnhhhh, I’ll probably put up with it to try a different top coat. Cuz the color is swell!
Fifth Item- Beauty Without Cruelty Premium Botanical Lotion–
I’m glad to have this. Lately, I’ve been the proud receiver of The Hives from No Where. This lotion is gentle and soothing. It really is fragrance free with none of that weird fragrance free weird smell. (Shush, you know what I mean!)
It’s been a weird little morning, who am I kidding!! I woke up at 11:30. Afternoon. So, in order to amuse myself this is how the swatching is gonna go for this blog. Ipsy Rules is the Skone eyeliner and the the underlining was done in The Balm’s Meet Matt(e) Hughes. I even got on of the only unchipped nails (Dose of Color in Stormy) in there, too.
This bag? Rocked my little ankle socks off! Loved it. The Return on the $10 Investment… was high this month.
