Why I Love Makeup {Ipsy Review}

I've said it before, but I love makeup.
Do you know why I spend the extra few minutes putting it on everyday?

Because the 'before' picture is SCARY.


My December Ipsy Bag came yesterday so like any true product junkie I had to try them all out this morning.


1. The Mirabella Primer- felt oily going on, but gives a nice smooth finish. LIKE!
2. 24/7 Glide On Pencil, Urban Decay- Smooth, but not a long lasting finish in my experience.
3. NYX Shimmer Shadow- Pretty, but the application sucks. You have to pour some out somewhere and then use it. I used the lid, but it was still messy.

I know I need my brows done!
I added a little Meet Matte from my last bag.
I think I may need to buy more of the mattes, they blend well and I have too much shimmer in my stash.

4. Bombshell- ummmm HELLO this shit is the BOMB.
Not sticky and so pretty on!


5. Mai Couture Highlighter Paper- Honestly I couldn't tell a difference in the before and after. Good idea, but maybe my tan was too dark to see it on?

There ya go! I'm still very happy I switched from Birchbox to Ipsy.
I got all of the above for 10 bucks and that lip gloss was full sized y'all. 


Happy Thursday!

  4. I think you look lovely in BOTH photographs... especially if you had the same smile/hair in the first one that you do in the second :) :)

  5. I had the same problem with UD 24/7 in zero...would fade grey after a few hours. Try UD 24/7 in perversion...super black and stays black ALL DAY. :)

  8. oooo I'm anxious to get mine now! I'm doing a 2 month experiment with Birchbox and Ipsy to see what I should stick with but I think I lean more towards the fun makeup items and not so much towards the patchouli room spray. Looking Good Meg!

  18. Here I was set on the decision to get my SIL a subscription to Birchbox for Christmas, but now I'm torn since Ipsy is the same price! Have you ever gotten Birchbox before?

  19. I got my bag this month-I signed up after your last review. I loved everything, but the gloss was not my color. Lucky for my sister she loved it. I feel super indulgent though because I haven't cancelled my Birchbox yet either. I think I have a problem. LOL

  21. Yep this month rocked! I'm ready for a cute bag though. I missed the red and white one a few back.

    Take it from a patsy girl....I could tell when I used the shimer paper! I've been usuing it eveyday. Love it! Yeah I knocked my eye shadow over and well that was a huge mess. Dumb design but like you said I love the color!
