Day 26!! Get Ready with Me: A Girl’s Night Out Blog Hop!!!

Can you believe that April is coming to an end?!? That is crazy! But, I have a happy feeling with that, because I actually wore sandals today. It felt amazing! Absolutely amazing! Hopefully Spring is here to stay! This lovely blog hop was lead by the amazing Jacquelyn from The Little Scottish Corner. Jacquelyn, a few other ladies, and I, decided to post a blog hop, “Get Ready with Me: Girl’s Night Out.” Aaah the agony of deciding what palette to use?!? Yes, I may be a little bit of a palette addict! I decided to go with my newest palette by Too Faced which is the Chocolate Bar palette. Let me tell you this….not only do I love this palette, but it smells amazing! Sometimes I just open it again, just so I can get a whiff of chocolate.

Part 1

Prime those eyes! I used Urban Decay primer potion as my primer, then added a Maybelline color tattoo over and blended it out.

Part 2: The fun part! The Shadow! 

Step 1: Open the palette and smell the amazing chocolate scent!

Step 2: Take a flat shader brush and apply the color Marzipan onto the inner half of the eyelid.

IMG_20140425_123552913

Step 3: Take another flat shader brush or flip the current brush around and take Haute Chocolate and place that shade on the outer half of the eyelid.

Step 4: Take a crease brush and add the shade Milk Chocolate into the crease. Make sure to blend, blend, blend!

IMG_20140425_123943429

At the end of these steps you should have something like this!

Step 5: Take a pencil brush with the shade Black Forest Truffle and add some definition to the outer V and blend a little bit of that shade into the crease. This shade has some sparkles and is very pretty!

Step 6: Take a blending brush and take the shade White Chocolate and apply it below the eyebrow and blend out the harsh lines of Milk Chocolate.

Step 7: Take the Overshadow in Work is Overrated from The Balm and apply it all over the lid for some extra shimmer! Perfect for a night out!

Step 8: Take the shade Champagne Truffle and apply it in the inner corner by the tear duct.

 Part 3: Eyeliner, Mascara, Face, and Lips

Step 9: Add liquid eyeliner! I used my Collection eyeliner from the UK!

IMG_20140425_125133316

Step 10: I did not like the liquid eyeliner for this look because I felt like it was too harsh, but adding Black Forest Truffle really softened up the look. I used a pencil brush to apply the shadow.

Step 11:  Apply mascara!

Step 12: Put on that face!

Primer
Foundation
Concealer

I love my Sigma F80 for applying foundation! It gives me a flawless finish!

IMG_20140425_125857151

Love this concealer that I got in my box swap! Thanks Effie!

IMG_20140425_130333380

Step 13: Apply blush and highlighter! I didn’t contour, even though I probably should have for a night out look. I have yet to find a good brush for that, so I usually shy away from bronzer powders at the moment.

IMG_20140425_130140340

Step 14: Finishing Powder!

IMG_20140425_130550258

I use this brush to set my concealer because it fits perfectly under my eye area.

IMG_20140425_130646191

Step 15: Pout those lips!

I got this Cailyn product from my Ipsy bag and this Julep lipgloss from a few Julep Maven boxes back.

Step 16: Add those finishing touches!

The Final Look

I could not get the camera to capture the actually look. In the photos you can’t see the shimmer! 😦  I need to figure out a way to capture my makeup looks more effectively!

The lip products faded throughout the day, so here are some pictures with a different lip!

Day 19: April 2014 Ipsy Glam Bag Beauty Rocks

With it nearing the end of April that can mean a variety of things, with receiving my Ipsy glam bag being one of them. Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service that costs $10 dollars a month. They usually send around 5 beauty samples ranging from skincare to makeup in a cute little cosmetic bag. I have had Ipsy for a good portion of time and I do really enjoy receiving these monthly. BirchBox has come and gone, and Beauty Box 5 may be out the door as well, but Ipsy so far has been my favorite.

Time to share with you all the items that I got this month!

This month’s theme was Beauty Rocks! Personally I think that this month’s bag is ugly. Definitely not a fan of it, but I suppose that it does fit the theme really well. This month’s bag also has a smell to it that I can’t explain. I would say that it is a mix between a factory/chemical smell and something I can’t distinguish. I do really like the shade of purple, but that is no surprise because I love purple!

Here is the little card that comes inside the bag. It just shows information about brand offers. I hate that Ipsy doesn’t include a card that states a description about the products like BirchBox and Beauty Box 5.

IMG_1847

Here is an overview of the items included!

IMG_1862

Item #1 Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

What Ipsy says, “The dr. brandt® microdermabrasion gently sweeps away dead skin cells and softens skin texture, which enables better absorption of skincare products and helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and skin discolorations. A great at home alternative to professional clinical treatments. Safe to use for all skin types. For best results use with dr. brandt® skincare products. ” Information found here

I didn’t feel like trying this on my face quite yet, especially with starting my long stretch at work. I really don’t want to have any break outs because I decided to try a new product on my face. I did try a tiny bit on a portion of the top of my hand and this stuff sure made them smooth. The scrub particles are very fine which is something that I like. I do really like the scent as well. It reminds me of lime tea. So far I’m very intrigued to give this a go and see if it makes my face super soft, but that will happen after my long stretch at work.

Item #2  24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil from Urban Decay in Black Velvet

What Ipsy says, “A must for smoky-eye fanatics: an ultra-plush version of UD’s creamy, waterproof 24/7 formula. Create perfectly blended-out or rich, precise lines that are blacker-than-black. ” More information found here

I really like these eye liner pencils from Urban Decay. When I first started getting into Urban Decay, I got this set that came with a bunch of mini eyeliners. I think that they’re super creamy and easy to use. This eyeliner does not tug on the eyelid during application. I hate that I have to sharpen these pencils, but since I like the formula I don’t mind too much. I am more of a fan of twist up eye liner pencils such as Stila, but I feel like Stila’s formula is a little too soft. All in all I was happy to receive another pencil and was even more excited because it is in a color that I have never tried.

Item #3 Tinted Lip Balm by Cailyn in Apple Pink

What Ipsy said, “Indulge in colors that last and formulas that enrich! This ultra matte, super moisturizing lip balm offers you rich colors with amazing staying power.” More information found here

This lip balm has super bulky packaging. At first I was amazed by how bulky it was until I realized that it came with a lip brush. So far I like this lip balm and I love that it came with a brush (seems to be a nice one too). Although, yes I think the shape is odd and I might have a hard time finding a place for it in my collection I know I will get some good use out of this one. I really like the color and don’t think that it is too bold for me. I do think that it wasn’t as moisturizing as it claims. I just added a swipe of my Miranda’s Tangerine lip balm for some extra moisture.

Item #4 Jasmine Perfume Oil Roll On by Demeter

What Ipsy says, “An exotic, sweet, warm floral bouquet. Demeter’s Jasmine is the experience of the living flowers picked on a beautiful spring night. Wear alone or layer with your favorite Demeter fragrance. With over 250 fragrances, the Demeter Fragrance library is inspired by everyday objects and experiences. ” More information found here

I was not impressed with the scent of this! I feel like a person is either going to love it or hate it. I just wasn’t liking it because it was way too strong for me. I do have a perfume collection and I never ever saw myself wanting to use this. So I decided to swap with another person. She is sending me an Essie polish in exchange for this product and the following product below.

Item #5 Pop! Goes the Shadow by Elizabeth Mott in Champagne

What  Ipsy says, “The Elizabeth Mott pop! goes the eyeshadow is the ultimate eyeshadow that’s long lasting, easy to apply, and effortlessly blends. Buildable colors will take you from subtle highlights to dramatic smokey eyes. With pop! goes the shadow, eye shadow creasing is a thing of the past. Get ready to try the eye shadow that will change your life!” More information found here

I just wasn’t excited about this item. It’s not because I didn’t think that the color was pretty. I did not swatch it for the reason that I swapped it for my Essie polish, but the color did look pretty in the pan. I tend to use palettes instead of single eye-shadows. I think the reason that I decided not to even try it was because I belong to a group on Facebook where we can swap and trade beauty subscription items. I decided to post a picture of both this item and the one above and see what people had to say. I am quite happy that I will be getting a new Essie polish instead.

So that concludes this bag for the month of April. So overall I thought this bag was medicore. I just wasn’t as excited as previous bags. I think that part of it was because I am annoyed because I never receive the Ipsy products that I actually want ever. I really wanted the Benefit Lolltint, but oh well! I just get annoyed when any subscription box service posts a photo of an item on their Facebook page or Instagram or some social media site as a sneak peek and then I don’t even receive that item. Sorry for my little rant! Comment and let me know if you subscribe to Ipsy and what you got in your Ipsy bag! I love hearing from my readers!
