Ipsy Glam Bag: March 2013

Hello everyone! Today's post is a review on this month's Ipsy Glam Bag.

For those who don't know, Ipsy is a makeup/beauty monthly subscription service. For $10/month (plus tax in some states, shipping included), you'll receive 4-5 products in a little cosmetic bag. It sounds like a great idea, and some bags I've received have been awesome. However, some bags, like this one, were not so awesome. If you're interested in signing up, you can click here to register for their Wait List (it usually takes about one month to get a bag, so if you get put on the wait list in late February and miss March's bag's payments, you'll be able to sign up for April's bag). Unlike Birchbox, I don't get any sort of recommendation points for you clicking this link.

Review: Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duo in Sunlit Sage 60

Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duo in Sunlit Sage 60 ($7.50 ~ .64 oz.): 

Hello everyone! Today I'll be reviewing an eyeshadow duo that I've actually had around for awhile, but never used too often. I bought it for a Christmas party (not for this past Christmas, but multiple Christmases ago...yes I know keeping "expired" eyeshadow is bad, but I hate waste!) and didn't like the way it came out. When I used it, it looked really sheer. However, for this St. Patrick's Day, I really wanted a fun eyeshadow look, especially since the party I was going to was a 1920s St. Patrick's Day party. I decided to give it a second chance, and I LOVED the way it turned out. Maybe because I was using a different, newer eyeshadow brush that possibly picked up more color, maybe because this time I pat on the eyeshadow rather than doing a sweep over my lid. I don't know, but I was really happy and even received compliments on the look!

Review: CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black Brown

CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara in Black Brown ($8 ~ .44 fl oz.) - An oldie but a goodie! I've used this before and keep going back to it. As you can see, my tube is a little beat up, but I only hold on to one mascara at a time (because how many tubes can a person use up in three months?) and this one just goes wherever I go.

Review: Clarisonic Mia II

Today we're talking about the Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($149). I received this as a gift from my mother a few months ago for Christmas (thanks, Mom!) and I find that it just does wonders for my skin.

Thrifty Find: Owl Necklace

I found this necklace while scouring the Internet in an attempt to ignore my impending responsibilities (as usual). Isn't it cute?

Review: Wen Pomegranate Replenishing Treatment Mist

I've been using Wen products for awhile now, almost two years, but I decided to try to Replenishing Treatment Mist about two months ago. My hair was getting really static-y and was getting a lot of fly-aways from the dry winter air, so I figured it was about time.
