ipsy Glam Bag | July/August 2015

Long time no see! I really needed a hiatus. I've been overwhelmed with work and school but I missed my blog! I'm back in school for the fall semester but I only have one semester left (not counting this one). My blog posts maybe a bit patchy because of that but I haven't forgotten about you, promise! This post is super late but still I wanted to share my last two ispy Glam bags.

Review & Swatches | Laura Mercier Face Illuminator (Indiscretion)

Recently, I've become rather obsessed with highlighters. I used to detest them because I hated how they looked on my skin. I have oily skin with rather large pores so if I'm not early I can make my pores look larger. How I've come to enjoy highlighters is to not care a much about messing up and making something more noticeable. I used all mattifying products and I add the glow where I want it, which is usually the cheek bones. Oily girls, we can wear highlighters too!


Review & Swatches | Too Faced - The Little Black Book of Bronzers

This has been out for a couple months now. I'm really kind this isn't limited edition. This came out in a larger format last year (I think) and it was pretty pricey. They reinvented the concept into a smaller format and I jumped right on that.


Swatches & Review | Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick

Jordana - Modern Matte Lipstick $2.99
From Jordana's website these lipsticks are described as "..a winning combination of high payoff pigments and special ingredients that comfortably extend the wear. Expertly selected shades have an all-day wear without the typical ‘dry lip’ finish that feathers and cracks".


Comparison Swatches and Review | Gerard Cosmetics - 1995 Lipstick

This brand Gerard Cosmetics, has gotten so much hype as of recently on Instagram and YouTube. Their lipstick, specifically the 1995 shade, really interested me. They offer amazing sales and discount code so it’s very easy to get their products at an affordable price.

Swatches & Review | Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks (Pure Hollywood, Lovely, & Vamp)

The Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks have been all the rage. The whole idea of liquid lipsticks have been a huge tread for this year. I’ve been on the liquid lipstick train for quite some time now and I get excited anytime a brand launches their version.

Before my review I wanted to store my buying experience. My original order for these lipstick consisted of just Pure Hollywood and Vamp. When I got my package I received Lovely instead of Pure Hollywood. I thought maybe I was going crazy and that’s what I ordered. When I check my invoice online, I found out that I was indeed sent the wrong shade. I emailed the Anastasia customer support and received a reply the next day. Long story short, they let me keep Lovely and they sent me Pure Hollywood. I was floored but the wonderful customer service I received. They were quick, polite, and they gave me a $20 product, essentially for free. Thank you, Anastasia!
