Ipsy Bag January 2014 "Fresh Start"

Our Ipsy bag for January 2014's theme is "Fresh Start" and the card reads: A kickoff so clean the possibilities are endless.  Get ready for a fantastic and flawless 2015.  I'm hoping that 2015 is an extraordinary year for Ipsy as I wasn't overly impressed with my bags in 2014.  Jut from opening my bag I'm already pleased with the items I got as the colors and items are perfect my taste other than the eyeliner.  I can see myself getting use from 4 out of 5 of the products.  The Elizabeth Mott eyeshadow brush will go to good use and it really is quite soft, we are no stranger to Elizabeth Mott as we've recently received a mascara, powder eyeshadow, and cream eyeshadow in past bags. Another returning brand in this bag was Pacifica with an eyeshadow, and I already know that I'm a huge fan of the brand from the nail polish, body butter, and Luminizing body butter we've previously received.  The only item in this month's bag that is so-so for me is the Hikari Eyeliner simple because I don't see myself using a charcoal gray eyeliner too much.  The oil based Malin + Goetz lip balm will definitely see some love as we are in the thick of Winter.  I can't wait to try out the Velvet 59 lip gloss, it's a nice neutral shade, is perfect for me. Swatches below, Enjoy!

My bag this month:

Elizabeth Mott - "All Over Shadow Brush "
Hikari Cosmetics - Mechanical Eye Liner "Storm"
(Malin + Goetz) - "Mojito Lip Balm"
Pacifica - Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow "Ethereal"
Velvet 59 - Velvet Lip Gloss "Noisette"

My 5 November Favorites, Give or Take a Few

Hi Guys!

It's that wonderful time of the month again, Monthly Favorites! It's bittersweet that this is the last favorites that i'll be sharing of 2014, it was truly a simple month as I was busy most of the month preparing for Thanksgiving and now Christmas.  Simple has been the theme and definitely gotten it done and i'm thankful for that.

Zoya Matte Velvet Collection

Happy Hump Day!

I have a very unique collection to share with you today, I would even call it a bargain!  I must open by admitting that I've never been much of a matte, sparkle, or glitter girl until this past year; I favor more of a cream and opaque formula.  These little gems took me completely by surprise, I fell in love with how quickly they dried and the gorgeous shades of sparkle they produced.
