Today, I received my first ever Ipsy Bag and I couldn’t be more happier. I am all game for beauty subscription services and I wanted to try some from USA also and Ipsy Bag is the most popular one here. I also reviewed my first ever Lip Monthly Bag last month. You can read that review here : http://pinkvanity.in/review-of-lip-monthly-bag-april-2017-edition/
Ipsy’s May edition is all about the summer essentials and here is how the bag looks like :
Hope you all are doing great. Well, I am enjoying my time in US with shopping and exploring some new places around me. This month, I tried to subscribe for two US monthly beauty subscriptions : Ipsy Bag and Lip Monthly Bag. Though I couldn’t get my hold onto Ipsy Bag (thanks to their high volume of demand ), I received my first Lip Monthly Bag just last week. When I subscribed at their site for the first time, they made me fill up some information on my preferences for colors and brands etc. They also provided me the tracking details after the shipment and I got the package within 15 days after dispatching.
Cost : $12.95 monthly (I got 50% off on my first bag)
If you are following me on Instagram regularly, you must have known that , currently I am in US with my husband. My husband had to attend some official workshops and I decided to join him. As you can imagine, seeing a new place and shopping is the main reason why I travelled so far from India. Well, I am enjoying every bit of it. After reaching here, the first thing I did was ordering some stuffs from Colourpop Cosmetics. Colourpop cosmetics is the most amazing brand one can imagine. So budget-friendly and a wide variety of products, especially eye shadows and lippers. So, when I saw they were offering free shipping on any amount purchased, I immediately grabbed the opportunity and got some stuffs.
Summer is almost knocking at our doors and I am not so happy about it. Summer means more sweat, dirt and pollution which makes my skin so dull and lifeless. My sensitive skin needs a natural remedy for this problem which leads me to an Indian Skincare brand. Kama Ayurveda is a 100% natural,ayurvedic brand which has so many options for skin and hair care regime. My first purchase from them was ‘MRIDUL’ – it is a 100% soap-free face cleanser.
I know about Taraji P. Henson vaguely for quite some time now. But the craze went up this year when she collaborated with MAC . This year’s Viva Glam collection features Taraji P. Henson. The collection consists two co-ordinating shades :
One matte lipstick and one lipglass.
Colourpop has been my absolute favorite makeup brand since last year. I have got a bunch of lippers and eyeshadows from them . In my personal opinion, it is the most versatile brand with lots of varieties and options without a hole in your wallet ! Hell yes, I am reviewing one of my recent purchase from Colourpop . It is from their Hello Kitty collection which was released last year around November. I have got an ultra-matte liquid lipstick from this range, which is called ‘Milk Bottle’ .
I have never written anything about eye shadows on my blog, till now. Though, it does not surprise me because I am not an eye-makeup genius at all. I, generally stick to my favorite warm-neutral eyeshadow palettes most of the time. That was the reason I grabbed this BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 color Eyeshadow and & Highighter palette and I have been loving this palette since last year.
To me, Valentine’s Day is all about soft and gentle make up look . Subtle looks goes very well with all day hanging out or lunch and also dinner dates. After all, we should not have to be careful on only make up on V’day, isn’t it? It’s all about being with our loved ones all day long. So, in this occasion, I am sharing a pink-inspired make up look with a pink lips and pink eye-liner combo. And what can be the best pink liquid lipstick other than Kylie Cosmetics Posie K ? Yes, I have used Kylie’s Posie K to create this subtle make up look.
Lakme is on a roll here ! They have come up with something exciting this year on the eve of Lakme Fashion Week 2017. It is Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color. Doesn’t it sound something totally different?
Lakme has released 15 gorgeous shades with a soft and smooth finish. It is a part of Lakme’s Absolute range.
Nykaa has recently launched so many high-end brands on their website . They now have MAC, ESTEE LAUDER,CLINIQUE,BOBBI BROWN to name a few. It has really made all of the makeup lovers so happy because now they can shop whatever they want with just a click on their mouse ! Talking of MAC Cosmetics, they have added 12 new shades in their retro matte liquid lipstick range in December 2016. Most of the shades are earthy-nudes , only one deep-red and one blue-based color. I also took this advantage of Nykaa Luxe and ordered one new shade of MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick for me. The shade name is also very unique and witty. It’s called MAC Topped With Brandy.
