Ipsy Bag July 2016

July Glam Bag

I am always so excited to get this monthly stash for $10. Ipsy always comes out with exclusive bags. This month’s bag has a holographic material and beach umbrellas print all over. The print is only on the front side; the back side has the same material but with no prints.

Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in Matt Moskowitz:

I got this eyeshadow in the shade MATT MOSKOWITZ and I totally love this eyeshadow. It’s a nice dark plum shade color and highly pigmented. Love this shade to deepen my crease and also use at the outer corners of my eyes.

Delectable lemon & cream ultra-nourishing hand cream:

This hand cream is totally moisturizing and not greasy at all. However, it has strong scent which I normally don’t prefer. It contains shea butter, coconut oil and aloe vera which are rich and nourishing.

OFRA Cosmetics Lip Liner in Maya:

I got this lip liner in the shade MAYA and it’s a beautiful brick red color. It’s very smooth and glides easily but not long lasting.

tre’StiQue Mini Highlight Stick in Maldives Luminescent:

This product works like a charm. It has got beautiful color and is much pigmented. It’s a soft cream gel like highlighter and it blends so flawlessly. It is a great base for powder highlighter. Love this product !

Luxie Rose Gold Small Angle Eye Brush 215:

This brush looks so pretty with rose gold finish. It has dense and compact bristles. This small angled brush is great for applying brow pomades and powders. This brush also makes smudging the lower lash line a lot easier.

Target Beauty Box June 2016

Hey guys,

I am here with a subscription beauty box from Target. Every month Target releases a few different beauty boxes.  At the end of May there was an option to purchase June beauty box for $10 and I just happen to be lucky enough to see it before it sold out since since they sell out within 12-24 hrs.  I believe they launch one every first Monday of the month.  This month theme was Sun KISSED.Typically, in a Target beauty box, you get a few deluxe sample, full size lip product and then a coupons. In this month’s box this is what I received –

Full Size Product:

E.L.F Lip Kiss Balm: This is a tinted lip balm which helps in creating a soft,moisturized lips. This lip balm is infused with Vitamins A, E, Grape Seed Oil and Jojoba Oil to nourish your lips. It has a minty flavor which helps keeps lips feeling fresh.

CoTZ Face SPF 40:  This sunscreen has SPF 40 and also it is tinted which I love the lost about this product. I used this once and I liked the way it was protecting my skin and also giving me an even skintone because of the tint. I might purchase the full size of this product.

Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo:  This shampoo is for dry dull hair which will give intense hydration and moisture. Haven’t used this one before. I would like to try this product since I have dry and damaged hair. It came in a 3.9 FL Oz bottle. Also a $2 coupon on Pantene Products.

SheaMoisture Fruit Fusion Crème Rinse: This hair conditioner contain fruits and coconut water to soften and energize hair. It’s mainly for curly and wavy hair and I don’t think it will work out for thin fine hair.

L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Cream: This cream claims to hydrate your skin and reduce lines and wrinkles. This cream has little bit of fragrance. I must say this cream does give me a healthy looking skin in couple of uses itself. Love it !!

L’Oreal Paris True Match Cushion: Have been wanting to try this foundation from so long and finally I can use this sample and see if this works out for me or not. I got this liquid foundation in the shade W3 Nude Beige with a tiny tap on applicator and also a $2 coupon on L’Oreal Paris True Match Cosmetics. Love it!

Soap & glory Body Butter: It’s a shea rich body butter and gives intense hydration and moisturize dry, delicate skin. Again, this can be travel friendly when you are just out of home for a day or two.

All these goodies came along with another coupon from target. Target Coupon for $3 off on $15 Beauty Purchase.

 

Was this a good value? Hell, yes!! I have not any of the products before so I’m excited to try them out. And if there’s some that I love I can take my coupon and head over to Target and buy the full-size versions of them. And if there is nothing in the box  I can still head over to Target and use it on any cosmetic, skin care or hair care purchase I desire.

Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoyed!!Have you ever bought a Target Beauty Box?

 

Ipsy Bag May 2016

For those of you who are not familiar with Ipsy it’s a beauty box subscription for US$10.00 a month. It’s like a little piece of heaven for any makeup lovers. It is such a fun surprise to look forward to each month. I have been subscribed to Ipsy for over a year now but this will be the first time I am doing a beauty box review. So let’s get started.

First of all, I loved the bag for this month. The theme for this month was DESTINATION CHIC. The bag is designed as an envelope. I guess this was the first time ipsy changed their bag pattern. So I totally loved how the bag looked.

Here are the goodies which I got,

Hikari Palette:

I got this mini palette in the shade Shimmer Bronze RADIATE. I am yet to try these out but the shade looks amazing. The packaging is simple and its travel friendly. Perfect for summer and beach essentials.

Vasanti Cleanser:

This is a exfoliating cleanser which contains papaya and aloe. Its just a travel size and it contains 20g of product. Again easy and travel friendly for a beach vacation.

Jersey Shoe Spa Hydrating Balm:

File_001 (1)

I love lip balm and was so happy to see this one in my bag. It’s a lavender moisture rich hydrating balm. It contains coconut oil lavender oil vitamin E oil which all are good for skin. I used this product couple of times and just love the way it feels on my lips and lipstick glide so easily. I really have dry chapped lips and this was something I needed. I highly recommend this product.

Melow Cosmetic Lipstick:

I love the packaging. I got in the shade ELECTRO which is a red orange color. It’s a matte lipstick and this color suits on all skin tones. I love the shade. Detailed review coming soon.

Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

File_003 (1)

It’s a mini mascara which is good for travel. To be honest I wasn’t excited about this product as I have got Smashbox mascar earlier in my ipsy bag and I dint like it all. There is lot of hype about this X-Rated mascara in the social media so I will give a try and let you all know my thoughts on about it.
