February Ipsy... Saying Goodbye to Ipsy

Image
**Bought It**

This is my last Ipsy bag and I'm feeling kind of sad and kind of happy. First, of course, I am going to be sad to say goodbye to any steady flow of beauty products. This relationship just had to end. Ipsy was killing me with a stream of crap eyeliners every month. I know, I know... you are saying this is all about eyeliners? Yes! Several months in a row, I would tweet, status, snapchat, insta, blog, everything to tell them to stop with the liners. I was just sick of getting a hit or miss and not liking what I got consistently. So, I had to say goodbye!   Briogeo Roscara Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Creme While I have not had a chance to use this product yet, I think it's super important to keep an arsenal of hair products on hand. I love trying different hair  treatments because I abuse the crap out of my hair so I have to love it as much as I can. I have tried a couple different Briogeo products and I have liked them all. Even when I am not using a straigh…

Zim's Max Crack Creme for Your Winter Blues

Image
**Product Review**
I was recently given the opportunity to try out two products from Zim's. Zim's carries an array of products that are perfect to care for your winter skin needs. My daughter has super sensitive skin that hates the winter. She constantly has to have her hands protected because they get so dry. I also wanted to try these out on my tootsies to keep them fresh throughout the cold days.  The Max Crack Creme Creamy Daytime Formula is designed to be used in the morning to help alleviate dry skin through an herbal formula. We used this on my daughters hands, my feet and my hands. It does have a slight scent, but I found it to be calming. It felt smooth and not greasy and I felt protected throughout the day.  The Original Liquid Max Crack Creme is a creamy liquid that is designed to be used at night to help fight dryness while you sleep. I only used this on my feet and nails. I felt as if the Daytime Formula was sufficient for my daughter. At first, it was kind of st…

Sephora January Play! Box

**Bought It**
I know I am a little late in posting this, but you know... it's netter late than never!! You all know I am a huge gym buff so I was excited to get a bag that was made for my gym brat side. Even the bag was made to put all my gym shower products in so the bag doesn't get all soggy and is easy to dry out. So pumped, Sephora!! Tarte Frixxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser I have never heard of this product until the bag. I have now used it 4 times and I am in love! It has the perfect amount of exfoliation without being too harsh especially after a gym sesh. My face feels fresh and clean after using it. The only thing I don't like is the stick. I really prefer a tube for sanitary purposes. I just don't like putting yuck back on my face, you know? OUAI Haircare Treatment Mask I actually have not used this product yet, but it is totally a gym product for me. When I "wash" my hair at the gym it usually consists of dry shampoo or a conditioner only wash. S…

RIMMEL LONDON THE ONLY 1 MATTE LIPSTICK

**Press Samples**
Rimmel Lodon has a whole new set of my favorite finish of makeup. The Only 1 Matte Lipstick is an all-in-one matte lipstick that gives you a long-lasting, moisturizing color. It gives you all day color without drying out your kissers. The specie formula is made up of emollient oil and a liquid polymer to give that comfortable, all day look. I have three out of the nine colors to show off to you today.  Trendsetter Trendsetter is a nude, leaning tan color. I'm not a huge fan of nudes because they just don't look great on me. This one is a little bit darker so I will rock it. I always feel like I'm just slapping some foundation on my lips when I wear a true nude so I appreciate a swing in a shade lighter or darker.  Call The Shots This a a bright star berry red that is just perfect for this season. I think of this shade as a perfect transition color. It's dark enough for the winter season, but bright enough to bring us into the spring season.  Take The St…

They are currently available on KBShimmer.com for $9.25 each. Take a peek at each of them and let me know what you think! Supplies Party Supplies Party is a creme color with metallic and holo sparkle- which is called Birthstone finish. I actually used 2 coats on this to pull together a full opaque finish. I love the silver glitter up against the cream color. It makes such a great color finish. 
Staple Relationship This deep gray polish is a perfect compliment to a office supplies obsession. It is scattered with silvery flakes and a holo sparkle. I would love the matte this one out to see what it looks like with a flat finish. I used 2 coats with this color to make for an even application. 
Makin' Copies This pale white holo is gorgeous in the light and even more gorgeous in the light of a…
