Ipsy Glam Bag Plus, Boxycharm and a #giveaway

Beauty blogs have been talking a lot about this month’s Boxycharm and the new Ipsy Glam Bag and I’m going to do the same but with a twist. I’ve got a giveaway which I know you all love.

October 2018 IPSY Glam Bag

Let me start with the new Ipsy Glam Bag since it’s the very first month. This isn’t available to everyone yet as they are just rolling it out to former subscribers. The price rose from $10 to $25 a month but instead of sample sizes they now have 5 – 6 full size products in each month’s package. This is mailed in a bright pink box and has a card describing all the products you’ve received as well as extra benefits. There are slight variations from person to person. It reminds me of the original Boxycharm which has been my favorite. Now Ipsy Glam Bag will want to be my favorite. Let’s see what was in my bag shall we?

Ipsy’s new makeup bag

Everyone received a bigger makeup pouch this month. Since I have dozens of the flat bags from my subscription this is a nice change of pace. A “luxury” makeup clutch will only come every 3 months.

Ciate London Dewy Spritz

While I have a lot of Ciate London I’ve never seen this Dewy Spritz which is a luminous prime & set spray. It’s interesting even though I’m not a fan of spraying my face but this has both hyaluronic acid and green tea extract so it is good for your skin. You can use it alone or over makeup. It’s nice to be able to freshen up with this during the day (close your eyes). There’s a light pearlescence that’s not glittery. ($25)

EYEKO Skinny Eyeliner

The EYEKO Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is one I have and use. It’s pretty easy to get either a thick or thin line with it. It’s very long lasting even on a wing line. ($22)

Tarte Maneater Mascara

Tarte Maneater Mascara is new to me. I’ve had a lot of different tarte mascaras and most are good so it will be interesting to see how this one compares. It has a flexible rubber brush with small bristles. Ingredients sound good. ($23)

  • Jojoba: Natural soothing and conditioning extract that helps hydrate, strengthen and protect lashes
  • Carnauba wax: Emollient from the leaves of the carnauba palm to ensure a smooth application with lengthening and volumizing benefits

I’ll review this when I need to open a new mascara and let you know.

Smashbox Cosmetic Cover Shot Eye Palette in Bold Glitter

Smashbox Cover Shot in Bold Glitter

Smashbox Cosmetic Cover Shot Eye Palette in Bold Glitter is a true glitter palette. Gorgeous combination of a mostly warmer tones but with a few cool shades to tranform it. I don’t wear glitter especially this bold but hopefully one of you do. ($29)

MORPHE High Impact Highlighter in Extra

Morphe Highlighter in Extra

MORPHE High Impact Highlighter in Extra – I have enough highlighters for my own store but that doesn’t mean I don’t want more. Morphe Extra is a light peach with gold. It’s reflective rather than glittery. ($14)

Purlisse Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant

Purlisse Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant is the 6th item (promised is 5 so this might be a bonus). This is a 10 minute mud mask which is good for those of us who want our pores clean and our faces to glow. It contains a combo of Blue Lotus Seeds, White Clay, Ginger, White Tea and Mushroom Extract so it’s loaded with healthy benefits. ($48 but also at Nordstrom Rack for $29.97)

So my $25 (no shipping but Michigan pays tax) yielded me $143 worth of products.

October 2018 Boxycharm

Now onto BOXYCHARM. I thought I’d signed up for the new box called BOXY LUXE but that won’t start for me until November. That’s okay because this month’s box ($21) is a great one. It contains 5 full size items that equal a $128 value!

IT COSMETICS Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

IT COSMETICS SUPERHERO MASCARA ($24) is always a favorite. Right now I have a lot of unopened mascaras but this one is one of my favorites. IT Cosmetics always has wonderful skincare benefits and this mascara is true to their beliefs.

  • Elastic Stretch Technology
  • Lash-Lifting Polymers
  • Volumizing Collagen
  • Hydrolyzed Keratin
  • Proteins and Peptide-Infused
  • Biotin

BRIGEO DON’T DESPAIR REPAIR! Strength + Moisturizing Leave-In Mask ($16 for 2 oz) is a product that everyone seems to love – except me. The fragrance is just too strong for me. One of my close friends was thrilled though when I told her this was in the box so she is grabbing it before you can.

Dermovia Black Bamboo Charcoal Peel Off Mask

Dermovia Black Bamboo Charcoal Peel Off Mask

DERMOVIA LACE A PEEL Black Bamboo Charcoal Peel Off Mask sounds so interesting. It’s for detoxifying your face with a charcoal peel paste on a lace mask. It’s meant to draw out impurities for a deep decongestion and exfoliation experience. ($30 for a pack of 2)

Pur Midnight Masquerade (kohls.com)

Pur Midnight Masquerade palette and Kat Von D liquid lipstick

PUR MIDNIGHT MASQUERADE PALETTE ($38) is of course my favorite in the box. “This 10-piece face palette will take any look from natural and innocent to sultry and mysterious. This limited-edition palette is arranged with highly pigmented and buildable shades that blend effortlessly into the face and eyelid for a look you’ll totally adore. Making a bold statement has never been easier with four, shimmery face powders and six, buttery eyeshadows that compliment all skin tones and eye colors.” Not only is the packaging beautiful but the 6 eyeshadows and 4 blush and highlighter shades look like shades that will be fun to use.

Kat Von D Bow n Arrow Liquid Lipstick

KAT VON D EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK IN Bow & Arrow ($20) finishes the face started in this box. This is described as a Fawn Nude. Kat Von D is vegan and cruelty free, the liquid lipstick is infused with vitamin E and sunflower seed oil. This matte liquid lipstick is long lasting.

Now that you’ve skimmed through all of this what about the giveaway? What can you win?

  1. Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick
  2. Dermovia Lace Masks
  3. Smashbox Bold Glitter Palette
  4. Eyeko black liquid eyeliner
  5. IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara

The giveaway is open through October 29th at 11:59 p.m. ET for US only. Our rules are always the same – you must be an email subscriber and you must comment. Those will be checked and if not found then it’s disqualification time!!!!  — Marcia

A new Fashion Flash

This week we are lucky to have one of our newest “flashers” be our hostess. Ladies Road Map is hosting Fashion Flash this week and it’s a pleasure to see their blog. Like Beauty Info Zone, Ladies Road Map has two lovelies involved JoJami and Lana have their blog and a podcast. We hope you’ll go read the great articles and when you’re done let us know if smiling can cause wrinkles!

Cleure – cosmetics you didn’t know about but want to

Don’t you think it would be great if there was a cosmetic line that was free of common irritating ingredients such as fragrance, parabens, formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals? Don’t you think it would be great if that cosmetic line was hypoallergenic and gluten free? And don’t you think it would be great to have that cosmetic line vegan and cruelty free? We are no longer in the dark as to what our cosmetics contain and with so many people having sensitive skin as well as allergies we need this kind of line.

Cleure Hypoallergenic Makeup

CLEURE is that kind of line. Cleure may not be a typical name but once you know the origin of it, it totally makes sense. Just like JLo is Jennifer Lopez, Cleure is Clean Pure! Just like the makeup.

I was sent three products to test and I’ve been using them non-stop since I received them. I’m not typically like that since I love to play around but I wanted a good sense of the cosmetics and I’m loving what I’m using.

CLEURE MINERAL MATTE EYESHADOWS are made for sensitive eyes. Cleure just has matte shadows, in 7 shades. All have “rich, high-pigment, true matte finish with full coverage. Our high-pigment mineral eyeshadow contains a conditioning formula with added vitamin C and E (gluten-free).”

Cleure Mineral Matte eyeshadows

I have this in Purple Clay and it’s the easiest shade to wear. It gets me out of my brown rut and eases me back into purples. But gently. When you see my photos you’ll wonder where the purple is but in reality it’s a beautiful light purple with gray undertones. It’s wearable alone as a subtle shade and it combines well with pinks, darker purples, and grays for a more unique look. And it lasts all day – it never fades, it stays true and lasts from morning to late night when I remove it.

Cleure Purple Clay Eyeshadow

Next let me introduce you to CLEURE LIQUID TO POWDER FOUNDATION which was a delightful surprise to me. There are 6 shades available.

SHADE GUIDE:
Cream Beige – for light to fair complexion with neutral undertone
Vanilla Cream – for fair to medium complexion with yellow undertone
Porcelain
– for light to fair complexion with pink undertone
Pale Beige – for fair to medium complexion with pink undertones
Natural Beige – for medium to olive complexion with neutral undertone.
Linen – very light complexion with neutral undertones

Cleure Mineral Liquid Powder Foundaton

Cleure Mineral Liquid to Powder Foundation

Normally I’d choose Porcelain when ordering online but I decided to try Linen and I’m very glad I did. It’s a light neutral cream shade that’s just a little darker than my skintone. They say this is a medium coverage foundation but the way I apply it makes it a light to medium coverage.

Cleure Mineral Liquid to Powder Foundation in Linen

First, it’s a dry feeling when you put it on. It’s not a liquidy liquid, it’s more of a cream finish. If I want it sheered out I’ll use a dampened beauty blender sponge but my preference is to use a foundation brush – either an oval one or a fluffy flat top brush. It applies so smoothly and it lasts. It really lasts. There is no fragrance in any of the Cleure products which is a giant plus for me. This foundation looks really natural on yet covers imperfections well.

Last is my favorite category: cream blush. I’m gaga for cream blush and CLEURE BLUSH STICK is right up there with the best. It’s available in 4 shades and I’d love them all. Not only is this a non-sticky blush but it conditions your skin with Vitamins C & E and Soybean Oil to nourish.

Cleure Blush Sticks

Shade Guide:

  • Adorable – A tangerine shade looks fabulous on warm-toned skin.
  • Luscious – A rich berry shade that brightens your cheeks or lips.
  • Playful – Soft dusty rose that compliments most skin tones.
  • Supernatural – Burnt sienna that is rich and warm in color.

I have this in Playful which is a pink that gives the appearance of fresh healthy cheeks, like you’ve come in from the cold with a happy smile on your face. It’s not the least bit greasy even though it’s definitely creamy. My long hair never gets caught in it. Plus it lasts a good amount of time for a cream blush. I’ve even used it on my lips. It’s not sticky and it gives me a naturally pink lip.

I’m sure by now you know that I really like this blush, foundation, and eyeshadow and am very happy to have them in my life. There’s a cherry on top of this sundae too. CLEURE is a very charitable company. They give back in many ways that you can read about on their site.

Take a moment and think about what you want from cosmetics and you may just realize that you are missing out on a brand that is Clean and Pure and will be excellent for your skin.  —  Marcia

5 Quick and Easy Skincare Tips for Fall

When the season begins to change, our skincare products stop working the same way as before. We are clueless why our skin feels so different in fall and it is all fresh and healthy in summers. The reason is the dry air and lack of humidity in the atmosphere.

You cannot expect your skin to glow in fall while you use oil stripping products on already dried-out skin. You don’t need to buy a whole new range of skincare products either. All you need to do is change your skincare a little bit and add more steps to hydrate and moisturize the skin.

Wondering how you can do that? Fret not! Here are some quick and easy skincare tips for you that will help you maintain a healthy and glowing skin this season:

Facial Oil Massage

You don’t need to get expensive moisturizers or hydrating masks to hydrate and moisturize your dry and dull skin. Simply take any facial oil that is not too sticky and apply a tad bit on the face. Then, massage your skin in upward motions until it fully absorbs into the skin. Doing so will not only help moisturize skin deeply, but also lift up the sagging skin. Find this link here for best massage devices for home.

Facial Mist for Hydration Boost

We all know that the skin becomes dry and dead in fall no matter how oily it is in summers. The best way to keep that dullness away is to give your skin a hydration boost. Facial mists serve the purpose quite well. You don’t need to buy a fancy one. You can simply make your own by adding a few drops of your favorite oil and aloe gel to rose water. Spray it on to your face two to three times a day and shake it well before use.

Scrub off the Patches

Dry patches begin to show up on skin as soon as fall arrives. Those patches will not let your makeup stay in place or look even. They also make your skin tone dull and your texture uneven. So, what to do get rid of them? The answer is easy: scrub it off! When I say scrub, I mean the mild ones because the skin gets sensitive in fall and you would not want to strip off the healthy natural layer of your skin.

Moisturize More Often

If you needed to moisturize once in summers, make it thrice as much in fall. Even oily and normal skin types face dry skin problems in fall because of the climate conditions. If your skin is oily, I would suggest you to use the same gel moisturizers that you have been using and do not shift to the cream ones. However, if your skin type is dry, make sure you either buy a thicker moisturizer or just increase the usage.

Hydrating Serum for Night

Nighttime is the best to apply any formula if you really want it to work on your skin. It is because our skin regenerates at night while we sleep. Serums are extremely light and thin in consistency. They have the power to go deep into the skin.

If you want to keep your skin supple in fall, start using a hydrating serum at night before going to bed. It will get deeply absorbed into your skin and make your skin super soft by the time you wake up next morning.

Bring on the pumpkin! MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Peel and Pumpkin Renew Cream

MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Peel and Pumpkin Renew Cream

With fall in full swing, it is time to bring on the pumpkin! Pumpkin isn’t just wonderful for your tummy, although I love my Pumpkin Spice Latte and pumpkin pie with tons of whipped cream. Hey, even the auto places are getting into the spirit of fall.

So with your tummy happy and your car even happier, why not make your skin joyous?  Pumpkin is one of the VERY best ingredients for skin care, did you know that? It has tons of antioxidants, like carotene, lutein, and cartenoid pigments. It also has vitamin E and linoleic acid, both of which help restore skin. And that beautiful pumpkin scent isn’t a chemical, so it doesn’t irritate skin. It is actually a plant that’s considered beneficial to skin. Plus the enzymes in pumpkin are excellent exfoliators. Mychelle has two lovely pumpkin based products in their line up – the Incredible Pumpkin Peel ($28) and the Pumpkin Renew Cream ($28).

MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Peel

MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Peel

MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Peel

The Incredible Pumpkin Peel is a truly lovely pumpkin treatment that will definitely get you in the mood for some pumpkin pie…this smells sooo good! It’s a pumpkin puree that exfoliates dead skin cells and renews skin, leaving it feeling super soft and glowing. Just smooth it on and leave it for about five minutes, then rinse off. I do this twice a week.  It’s especially great if for some reason you fall asleep before washing your face and need a quick triage in the morning! I love this and will definitely be repurchasing. The packaging warns that it could feel tingly but it doesn’t for me; however, I do see the results and am impressed.

MyChelle Pumpkin Renew Cream

MyChelle Pumpkin Renew Cream

The Pumpkin Renew Cream is one of MyChelle’s highest rated moisturizers. It doesn’t have a discernible scent to me, so no pumpkin pie here – the pumpkin is all inside thanks to the Pumpkin Seed Oil along with Cloudberry Extract, which are both full of antioxidants. This is a lightweight moisturizer that makes skin soft and hydrated thanks to the Astaxanthin, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E. It doesn’t have any SPF, so if you use it for daytime you need to add that to your routine. I like to use it as a nighttime moisturizer and for day I use it on my neck and decolletage. It’s also a nice moisturizer to mix with a foundation that is too thick to help thin it out.

You really don’t need to wait for fall to add pumpkin to your skin care routine – it’s an amazing skin care ingredient. But hey, ’tis the season so if you haven’t done so, why not? Your skin will love you for it. Bring on the pumpkin!  – Lisa
