My First November Ipsy/My Glam Bag: I'm Impressed!

I love monthly subscription kits!!

I have tried BirchBox and discontinued that.  I am still a Beauty Army subscriber, and now I am a Ipsy/My Glam Bag fan, too!

Here is the November Ipsy bag:

  • Cute cosmetic pouch
  • Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Millionaire
  • theBalm eyeshadow in Matte Batali
  • Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss
  • Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel
  • Starlet Cosmetics Intense Eyeliner in Black

This month's theme was "Party Perfect" and overall, I am really happy with this month's bag.  I am already looking forward to next month!

Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Millionaire.  The color is cute BUT it is bar glitter, which is NOT my bff.  I plan to use this in an upcoming giveaway, so it could be yours!

theBalm eyeshadow in Matt Batali.  This is a matte mushroom color that will make a good small add in to a giveaway or I may keep and use it as a liner instead of a black.

Bare Minerals Moxie lipgloss in a festive raspberry color:

Chella Eyebrow Defining gel was the only disappointing sample.  It was either this or Benefit's Their Real, which is my FAVORITE, never going to use anything else ever, mascara.  I would've loved another one of those, even a mini.  I won't use this gel because I have the world's thinnest eyebrows. They.dont.grow.in. I swear! Ugh!

Let's not even talk about it.  Moving on.

Lastly, Starlet Cosmetics intense eyeliner in Black. I am glad I got the black, I wouldn't have used another color.  I am picky!!

You can sign up for ipsy here: IPSY SIGN UP and it is $10 per month.  The bags ship randomly in the middle of the month, which is a little lame if you're OCD like me and like to stalk...I mean TRACK...your packages as they head to you.

This month's samples were totally worth the $10, in my opinion.  Although I plan to giveaway or swap a few of the items, they were still high quality, large sized samples!  I def suggest checking it out.

If you have a sample company you love, leave it in the comments!

  1. You received some nice goodies! That nail polish looked just like one I just hauled from Ulta. I subscribed to myglam a few months ago and didn't like what I was receiving so I cancelled. I hope they keep this up.

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!

My Top 10 Zoya Polishes!!

Zoya is a nail polish company that you can be proud to use!

Why? Not only are they 5-free, but every year they do an "earth day" promo, where you can purchase Zoya polish at half price - IF you promise to send them back old bottles of polish to be recycled properly by Zoya.  You can also donate your polishes to a local charity and it still counts as part of their promotion.

Here are the details:


With over 300 shades rooted in a healthy philosophy, it’s no surprise that we’re committed to helping you green your beauty routine! That’s why each year we give you the opportunity to exchange any old nail polish bottles that you may have laying around your house collecting dust, or that are not BIG5FREE formulas, for brand new toxin-free* Zoya Nail Polish shades. You can rest assured that your unwanted polishes will be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
