LATEST OBSESSION: MAC MSF "SOFT AND GENTLE"


If you've read any of my previous posts, then you know that I have OILY skin. For me this means that i tend to constantly shy away from shimmery powders, blushes, and especially highlighters. Recently, I decided to finally take a leap into the world of shimmery and glow-y face products. Why? I have no idea. BUT, MAC's MSF (Mineralize Skinfinish) in "Soft and Gentle" was one of the first products I bought. MAC'S MSF in "Soft and Gentle" has been in my makeup stash for a few months now, but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that I finally decided to start using it. In short, I am IN LOVE.

Ipsy's GLAM BAG: August 2013

Hello fellow makeup lovers!

It's Ipsy Glam Bag time....again!!


For those who may not have heard of Ipsy Glam Bag, it is a subscription service that costs $10 per month and sends you 4 to 5 products (some full size, some sample size) in a cute makeup bag each month.

When signing up you take a beauty quiz answering questions about things like your skin tone, what types of makeup you prefer, what brands etc., which helps determine what products you get and what shade of a product you get.

The theme of the August Ipsy Glam Bag was "Glamour Academy"! This month my bag came with 5 "samples" and the bag itself was a jewel-toned purple with a gold insignia that read "ipsy" and "glamour academy"...which actually kind of reminded me of the Hogwarts insignia from Harry Potter. There was also the usual card showing off this month's featured brands (as pictured above)!

Let's dive right in...

DUPE ALERT! Milani Shadow Eyez VS Urban Decay's 24/7 Shadow Pencil

I recently came across a dupe for a high-end product I really really love (and I'm sure other people do as well) and in true blogger fashion I thought I'd share my find with you all.


I love finding dupes for high-end products because it saves me a good chunk of money. And my latest find is definitely a perfect dupe for Urban Decay's 24/7 Shadow Pencil in "Sin"

Ipsy's GLAM BAG: June 2013

It's THAT time of the month AGAIN (there's really no other intro for it). My favorite time of the month that is...Ipsy GLAM BAG time!!


For those who may not have heard of Ipsy Glam Bag, it is a subscription service that costs $10 per month and sends you 4 to 5 products (some full size, some sample size) in a cute makeup bag each month. 

When signing up you take a beauty quiz answering questions about things like your skin tone, what types of makeup you prefer, what brands etc., which helps determine what products you get and what shade of a product you get.

The theme of the June Ipsy Glam Bag was "On the Wild Side"! This month my bag came with 5 "samples" (honestly, there wasn't a single sample-sized product in my bag) and the bag itself was (appropriately) an animal print bag with a neon zip detail. There was also the usual card showing off this month's featured brands!

Let's dive right in...

BIRCHBOX: May 2013

This post is so very late...for which I apologize. For those who are still interested, keep reading to find out what I got in this May's Birchbox.


For those of you who might not know, Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that costs $10 per month and each month you get a box in the mail filled with four to five deluxe sized (and sometimes full sized) products ranging from skincare to snacks to makeup to haircare and anything in between.

The theme for the May Birchbox was "Birchbox Beauty Diaries". If you filled out the card (pictured above) the came with your Birchbox and tweeted (via Twitter duh) the picture to Birchbox (@birchbox) then you COULD win a box filled with the full-sized versions of the samples you received in your May Birchbox. I actually thought that was a pretty neat contest, and I liked my samples enough to give it a shot (I didn't win *sadface*).
