Sooo.. I've been acquiring some beauty product samples from Ipsy and Beauty Army, and I was testing them out and just wanted to give some reviews. I also received a SUPER cute necklace from Fab.com in the mail today :D Super pumped show some of these things to you guys.
Okay, so is this not cute or what?? I love it and I think it's pretty unique to my sense of style.
I just bought these clips at Sally Beauty Supply. Thought they were fun and I think they work great for the salon. They work really well for long hair as well because the top portion of the clip expands. (Top side not pictured)
These Lash Cards are pretty neat. Very convenient. I actually got a sample from both Ipsy AND Beauty Army. I think their purpose looks pretty obvious, but if you are confused, this little card is basically used to avoid getting your mascara on your eyelids or under your lashes. I personally think it's a God send.. considering I always get mascara SOMEWHERE.
These things are NEAT. I don't use them all the time because they are REALLY shimmery.. but they are perfect for a night out. It's a booklet of highlighting papers. They tear out.. they are sort of like the same consistency as those oil blot papers, but they have shimmer on them.. You just pull a page out and highlight certain features, such as your forehead, cheekbones, nose, collar bone, and shoulders. I like them a lot.
If you like to go green, this soap is for you. It's smooth, feels great on your skin, and smells amazing. When I opened my Beauty Army beauty box, all I could smell was this soap, and I absolutely loved it right off the bat. I tried to take the picture close enough so you could see the website if you're interested.
I received both of these Nailtini polishes from Ipsy, in two different bags, and i must say, I'm impressed. I think the gold glitter, Millionaire, it gorgeous, especially over a dark plum color. It even looks pretty over the nude color, Frappe, as well.
I actually ordered this polish on a completely different site.. one of which I sadly cant remember. It is from the brand Kleancolor, and if I'm not mistaken I paid around $12 for it. Its a holographic glitter nail polish, and what I found to be pretty cool about it was that depending on the color you apply it over, the glitter actually looks different. For instance, over black polish, the glitter shines are red, yellow, and green, but over a light blue polish, it shows up more as light pink, that cool iridescent orange, and a pretty blue-green. Definitely a fun polish. The ONLY thing I wasn't keen on was the fact that it's sort of thick when it dries and you could easily peel it off.. depending on how many layers you do.. I applied two layers. One probably could have worked just as well and I don't think it would have peeled as easily.
Last but not least, one of my favorites. This Josie Maran Argan Oil came in my January Beauty Box if I'm not mistaken. My aunt was telling me about how much she loved it and next thing you know I get a sample.. A full sized sampled. :D It has A LOT of uses.. For instance, use it as a daily moisturized.. Apply it to your clean face, or on your body.. places that get dry like knees and elbows, or everywhere if you want. It can be used as a nail treatment for your cuticles, or as a bath oil. It's a pretty versatile product, and I am definitely loving it. AND it's organic, which is always nice to know :)
I supposed that's it for today. I've got some errands to run. Tata <3
