Goal: No Peeking!

In theory, part of the allure of subscription boxes is the SURPRISE factor. I am a notorious surprise spoiler (for myself only, not others!), and this is far too easy with all of the spoilers on facebook, instagram and beauty blogs. I have already stumbled upon a total reveal of this month’s PopSugar Must Have box (dang it!)– but I am determined to shield myself from learning about my exact Ipsy and Birchbox until I have these in my hands. Wish me luck!

What’s your favorite subscription of the moment??


Ipsy Glam Bag Review: March 2014


This was my third Ipsy bag…and it left me hooked as a subbie! Although this wasn’t my favorite bag from Ipsy, I was not disappointed. I mean, only $10 per month? Don’t mind if I do…

NYX Love in Rio Trio in Bikini Bottom– I was excited to get this trio because I have recently been loving NYX. I thought about getting one of the Love in Paris palettes, but there were just too many options. This trio offers soft, buildable shimmer. This trio will be a summer day-to-night staple!

Pixi Beauty Flawless Primer– I like the texture of this primer. It didn’t bother my sensitive skin, but it felt like just another step in my routine. I prefer to use a BB or CC cream, rather than primer plus foundation.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready– I love this smooth, natural pinky color. The sample was a nice size and fits great into any clutch. I didn’t feel like a giant trying to put on a Barbie lipstick 🙂

Chella Indigo Blue Eyeliner– I have really been getting into felt tip liners. I love the color, but it is currently not for every day. I have light green eyes, so I wonder if this blue would work better with dark eyes.

Bag by Klari (San Fran artist)– Major kudos to Ipsy supporting local artists, but I ended up selling this one on eBay. I have found that the top zipper Ipsy bags are more durable, rather than this front facing zipper.

Overall for this month: ❤ ❤ ❤ 1/2
