Physicians Formula ~ Bronze Minerals Eye Shadow Quad Review

20150925_145703A couple weeks ago my mom went through her makeup and gave me some of the stuff she wasn’t using. Most of it was really old or pretty poor quality stuff but one of them was this Physicians Formula eye shadow quad. I’m actually not sure where you can get these anymore. I know that she got hers at Ross and they sell them on Amazon and Ebay. If you’re lucky and find one at Ross then they are only about $3.

Price and Packaging:

If you’re lucky and get one of these at Ross then the price is excellent for the product you get. I would pay quite a bit more than $3 for this particular product so paying a regular drugstore price for this is well worth it. The packaging is a bit bulky to account for two different compartments. Both compartments stay closed very well so if you travel with this you don’t have to worry about it opening. The mirror and a brush are in the bottom compartment which keeps the mirror nice and clean but might be a little weird for actually applying the product. The brush is a fairly cheap sponge tip on one side a a small brush on the other. The brush itself is softer than most and I bet if I didn’t have my own makeup brushes I would be able to make it work.

Scorch Trials ~ Movie Review

I love movies and I love to read so when a movie based on a book comes out, I get really excited and also nervous. If I’ve read the book that the movie is based on, I want to movie to follow it the best they can. That being said, Scorch Trials is a movie you need to go into knowing that it’s more inspired by the book than based off of it. It’s been a while since I’ve read the book but even I noticed that there were a lot of changes and some of them were pretty major changes. I understood that some of the changes happened because of changes that happened in the first movie but others seemed like they were changed for no reason. I’m not going to talk about each and every change they made but if you’ve seen it let me know what you think about all the changes.

Trust Fund Beauty ~ Elegantly Wasted Nail Polish Review

Hey guys, I hope you’ve had a nice weekend. I got the Elegantly Wasted polish by Trust Fund Beauty in my Ipsy bag and wanted to do a little review for it because I’ve been wearing it a bit recently. This product is 17ml (essie is 13.5) and cost $15 on their website. I was happy that they included this in Ipsy because I wouldn’t usually spend $15 on a nail polish.

Covergirl Smoochies Review

So this is kind of a nice product to have in your purse. I have 3 different colors and you can usually get then for around $4 or $5. You get quite a bit of product compared to most lippies out now. These give you some sheer color and are also supposed to moisturize (as they are a lip balm) I actually like these quite a bit. For a lip balm I don’t want anything with too much color, I just want something I can apply easily throughout the day whenever I want.

January Ipsy Bag Update!

IMG_2393 IMG_2392Alright it’s time for me to update you guys on this last month’s Ipsy bag since my new one shipped today. Ipsy is a monthly subscription bag that sends you usually 5 luxury samples and full size products for $10 a month. When you sign up you answer some questions about skin tone and what kind of products you like to help them pick products that will be good for you. You can click here to go to their website and click here to read my blog post from when I first got this month’s items (they’ll open in a new tab so don’t worry). I’ve actually been using the products quite a lot this month and I’ve really been enjoying them. I went and house sat for someone for a week and the bag everything came in definitely came in handy. I used it for some of my makeup and it worked really well. It’s cute and easy to clean.

Dry Winter Skin

Last week I did a post on dry winter hair so I thought it would be good to do one on skin as well. Now I’m talking about my face here, not my body. For that I just use body butter and lotion from Bath and Body Works most of the time. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t actually do much in terms of skin care. I’ve tried a couple different face washes (all of them that I’ve tried are alright but nothing special) and I’ve been using the eye cream I got in my Ipsy bag but other than that, I just have one moisturizer that I use (I also use Simple face wipes to get my makeup off). I used to use a Neutrogena one (which was fine) but now I use the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer.
