Hello Lovelies,


I received my Ipsy July Glam Bag and really loved the goodies that they sent me n this month subscription. Oh if you didn't know by now, Ipsy is a monthly subscription beauty bag only for $10, yes.... only $10. You receive every month a combination of four or five travel size, full sized or even sample sized beauty products from well known brands or even new brands or brands you didn't even know exist.
The July theme was Sensationally Sunkissed, which is based on all the need for the Summer bronzed and glowing beauty and skin care look.



My pretty pink glam bag consisted of:

  1. Bare Minerals 5n1 broad spectrum cream eyeshadow in Divine Wine
  2. Hang Ten Tanning Oil
  3. Pixi Brilliance Lip Balm
  4. Lavilin Skin Smoother Jojoba Gel cream

Swatch: PrettyZombie Cosmetics

Hello Lovelies,

I came across this brand on the famous Instagram. I was intrigued by the intensity of the lip stain colors and had to give them a try. I decided I would buy five out the eight colors. The others colors not seen here are a red, blue and black color. However, these that I will swatch for you are the ones that stood out to me, especially the deep rich purple.




The packaging is basic with an anime red head green lady on it and on the other side the name of each color is in a dripping bold font.



All lip stain came sealed in with a small paper ingredient attached, once you remove the seal the ingredients went with it. I tried to remove just the upper seal section to leave the ingredients on a few of them.





L-R: 3 Witches ::: Spellbook ::: Pink Potion ::: Purple Poison ::: Potion #9

The lip stains are pigmented and when applied to the lips are not sticky but dry to a matte texture. I would suggest to apply to a pre-moisturized lips. I really prefer this brand texture over other lip stains I have owned and wore. It doesn't crack on my lips and it doesn't make my lips feel extra tight as Kat Von D lip stain do. These lip stains do stain like crazy though, I removed it with makeup remover and my lips were a red shade stain.

FOTD: Playful Mix

Hello Lovelies,


I haven't done a colorful purple look lately, being that the purple color is my favorite color of the color scheme, I had to grab it out my stash. None-the-less I paired it with a lavender color and then added some rose color duochrome glitter and of course I added other shades of the rainbow. I wish the purple had showed up more darker but it was more so a lavender than a deep purple. I really liked the look but I realized apart from palettes the only deep purple single shadow I own is MUFE #92.
