Upcoming Hautelook Deals

Hey peeps,

Just a heads up that starting Monday 6/27, select Algenist and Pur items will be 50-60% off on Hautelook. Set a reminder so you can log in early before all the best deals are sold out.


You know I love saving money, and saving money on high end skin care and makeup brands is one of my love languages. Ok maybe not but it still makes me very excited.   Just wanted to spread the good news. Hope all my peeps had a wonderful weekend and be sure to check it out tomorrow!

Until next time,

XOXO,

May-June Beauty Favorites

I never filmed my May Favorites video and now that it is the end of June I figured I would just combine the two 😜. 

So with that being said, check it out on my YouTube channel if you are interested. 

What are your current favorites?  What do you think about the items that I have favorited?  Have you tried them yet?

Comment below and subscribe if you don’t mind. 

Until next time,

Too Faced Totally Cute Palette

So today I received an email from Too Faced announcing the new “limited edition” eyeshadow pallet. You know how I feel about limited edition eyeshadow palettes if you watched my Sweet Peach Palette Rant on my YouTube channel. 

If you didn’t watch it, basically it annoys me because people will be buying them all up so they run out of stock and trying to resell them for 2-3x their retail value online.  Like we really need another Sweet Peach fiasco.   Automatically when I opened the email and read “limited edition” I started the eye rolling and urge to dismiss the message by immediately deleting it as I proclaimed “bye Felicia” 

Side note: people are still posting those SweetPeach palettes on Mercari and PoshMark for $95+ 🙄

Back to my point, here is the new palette:


It’s the Totally Cute palette that comes with stickers so you can customize your palette…

Um, yeah, no. I’m already not a fan and haven’t even seen it in person yet. For the price I don’t want to have to “decorate” it. I’m also a 33 year old woman so if I’m going to spend $36 on a eyeshadow palette it better display a level of sophistication and class that this price tag indicates it should. 

The first thing I thought of when I saw this palette is it reminded me of my first makeup set when I was like 6. I’m probably being way too critical but I just don’t get it. I will definitely not be buying this. New shades or not, put it in a grown up palette and I may consider it. But not until then.  

On a positive note the colors seem like they are very pretty. But still a no from me. 

What do you think? Will you be buying it?  What do you think about the packaging and “stickers” for customization?  Am I being too critical?  

Until next time,

XOXO😘

Ipsy June 2016

My favorite time of the month has begun. That middle part of the month when my beauty subscription boxes/bags begin to arrive. 

First up this month was my Ipsy bag!  Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription bag ($10 a month) with a mix of full size or deluxe sample size beauty items. 

Here is this months’ bag:


It’s super cute. But yet again the same exact size as all the other ones so not sure what I will so with this bag. 

Here’s what I received:

Seraphine Happy Hibiscus Blush 

Patchology Flashmasque 5 Minute Facial Sheets (qty:2)

Rodial Stem Cell Cleansing Cream 

Doucce Bombastic Lash Voluminizer Mascara 

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in the color Fireball

Positives:

  • The selection of products
  • The super cute bag design
  • The full size blush 
  • Finally having an urban decay item included

Negatives:

  • There isn’t a product card in the bag explaining each item and where you can buy them and their cost. Many other subscriptions do that and it is super helpful. Not a total deal breaker though but it would be nice. 
  • There was only one full size item this month (the seraphine blush)
  • The eyeshadow received is a small pan that looks like it should be inserted in to a palette or something. A palette that I don’t have. So I’m not sure I understand how to store this thing? Maybe I’m a moron.  What are you doing with yours?  Keeping it in the plastic container?
  • I also am puzzled by the Rodial facial cleanser. Where are these “stem cells” sourced from exactly? 😜 I suppose I should do some research but ain’t nobody got time for that. 

What did you think of your Ipsy bag this month?  What did you receive that I didn’t receive?  What were your favorite items? 

Let me know in the comments below. 

Until next time,

XOXO
