Time of Month Box #1

Included in this box was a facial mask, cherry flavored circus sticks, copper bangle, Hikari blush, and Palladio lip gloss.

I’m honestly not sure I’m sold on this one. Its okay. The bracelet is nice enough, and the make-up is okay, but not my favorite type of candy and we’ll see how the mask is. I tried both the lip gloss and the blush, and honestly, the lip  gloss is almost the exact color of my actual lips so it just makes them shiny, and the so-called blusher might better be used as a light bronzer for really pale people. I applied some rather liberally and couldn’t really see it and I’m pretty fair-skinned.

We’ll see how next month’s box is, but I will probably cancel this one. I did opt out of getting actual hygiene products because I don’t use a lot of them and didn’t see the point of paying for way more than I can actually use in a short amount of time.

Things I’m Buying

I made a nice sale in my shop, so I was able to put some towards the big things, and I bought a few things I needed as well. Unfortunately, one item will have to be returned because it won’t work out for me. That was a toilet paper roll storage holder that clips onto the side of your toilet tank. Too bad the ceramic of my tank is too thick, and its shaped all wrong to actually use. If my toilet tank was more square, it would be worth bending the hooks and making it work.  It works hanging off of one of the wire racks over my toilet though, so it’s a keeper.

I also realized that spice racks as nail polish shelves are genius! Obviously I need more nail polish, right?

I also ordered a container to store the puppy food in because the stupid mice are eating their way through the bag, helping themselves to as much as they’d like. Right now the puppy food is in one of my plastic file boxes I pulled out of the craft room because the mice wasted no time chewing into the new bag. I hate mice.

I also went back to the piercer to discuss this piercing with her. She doesn’t have the right jewelry in stock to do it so hopefully the right piece will come in next week and we can go ahead. I ended up leaving with an industrial piercing on my left ear, and a helix on my right. Of course I obviously didn’t think it all through because I sleep on my left side mostly, and now I can’t because its so sore, and even more not thought out was getting cartilage piercings on both ears at the same time.

The night before I went to the piercer though, I popped by Psycho City Tattoo and got my WORTHY tattoo done, as well as the star in my chest piece recolored. Bob Ackermann did a great job on both and I couldn’t be happier. 🙂

Poparazzi Nail Polish

I think I have a new fave. This stuff wears great, and its currently 2 for $5 at CVS. The colors Mink It Over (medium grey) and Yin Meets Yang (black and white micro dot) pair so perfectly together!

Ipsy Glam Bag #2

I recently subscribed to Ipsy’s Glam Bag service and today I received my second Glam Bag. The first one I received, I wasn’t completely thrilled, but I figured I would give it a few months and see if it improved. I was not disappointed this time.

First off, the bag itself is super cute!

And the contents are pretty great. I like that it caters your bag contents to your skin tone, eye, and hair color. That means you’re probably mostly going to get things you can actually use. Here’s what came in this month’s bag.

There’s an organic coconut milk-based facial lotion that smells incredible and its so light and easy to work into your skin. I’m going to use it everyday and see how my skin likes it, and if its a yes, then I can see myself ordering a full sized tube on this good stuff.

The Balm Voyage mini eyeshadow is super cute and a great neutral base color.

The mascara is very welcome because even though I got a mascara last month, my main tube (I’ve been a Mary Kay girl for ages) is about gone so now I have new options. Great since I’ve started wearing make-up again in the regular.

I haven’t tried the concealer yet, but I imagine it will come in useful. Same goes for the large make-up brush. I got a smaller angled brush in last month’s bag.
