Today’s Make Up: Sea Sprite

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing well this Wednesday. Yeah.. Can you believe that? We’re at another Wednesday already.

Arizona has a 60% chance of rain today, and not just rain but thunderstorm with high winds and all that good stuff. At the moment though, no rain yet, just very, very cloudy skies, dark clouds and very humid. I really shouldn’t go anywhere today but I dreamt of my Grandma last night. Maybe she’s lonely out there by herself… So I decided to go visit her today. I spent some time out there just talking to her, filling her in on what’s happening. I think she’s happy there, resting next to her husband. She’s finally resting in peace now.

I did some lazy makeup today since I didn’t really want to do full out makeup. I didn’t want my efforts to go to waste if I were to be caught in the rain. I haven’t used any of my Maybelline Eye Studio quads in the longest while so I thought I should give them a go today. I wanted something bright and whilst going through my drawers, Sea Sprite caught my eyes.

I’ve been into layering lip tints lately. It was pure experimental but I loved the result and have been sporting it ever since. Today, I applied Mandarin Juice first, let it dry before I applied Beauty Queen. I love the shade combo!

September iPsy Bag: Street Style

September iPsy Bag: Street Style

Hi guys! Another month, another iPsy bag. With the arrival of this bag, I am officially behind on two months’ update. I apologize, it’s been a crazy couple of months. I will try to get back into the game ASAP. Please bear with me and I really appreciate your patience. Thank you!!

This month’s theme is called Street Style and comes with a stylish gray faux leather bag with metal studs along the top. Really, really cute. I’d be lying if I said I’m not disappointed with the products I received this month… In fact, I am very, very disappointed with what I got. I’d rather receive the lipstick or nail colors, but instead I got these…

Crown Brush Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush

This brush is possibly the one and only product I am not disappointed in receiving. I am a brush hoarder; I love brushes. Good brushes will and can make your makeup application experience way more enjoyable. I own many, many sets and singles but I am always on the lookout for other great brushes. I’ve been trying to get my hands on the Sonia Kashuk limited edition brush set for sooo long to no avail. I think they’re all gone by now and I will not be able to own them. :(

Any who, I’ve never heard of Crown Brush before, but I am always up for trying out new brands. Apparently this specific brush is from their Infinity collection. This brush is double sided, one shadow and the other crease. It has fiber bristles, super soft and dense. I really cannot wait to put this brush to good use… soon. ;)

Pacifica Natural Waterproof Eye Pencil in Gun Metal

I really do not need any more pencil eyeliners, especially one that isn’t a twisty. I’ve never tried a Pacifica eyeliner before so this might not be too bad. This Gun Metal shade is gorgeous too. It’s too light to be an eyeliner, but I guess I can use it as a highlight for contrast.. or something. I’ll put it to good use.

I did swatch it on the back of my hand, it did seem to glide on with ease with pulling on my skin. I waited about a minute later before I rubbed it off, some came off but the majority was still there.

Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss in Love Affair

I received my first Cailyn product some months ago, it was also a lip product. I had mixed feelings regarding that tinted lip balm, so I kinda, well, I’m not quite sure how to feel about this tinted lip gloss. Y’all know I dislike wearing gloss. This shade seems like a shade I don’t normally pick up if I had a choice, but that might not be too bad. Since fall is coming up, darker lips will be in.

From what I can tell, the lip gloss seems to be a tad jelly like, I am hoping it isn’t too sticky. I wonder why it’s called a tinted lip gloss though. I guess the intense berry shade will not show up as intense on the lips. As for the smell, nothing too bothersome. More on the details after I’ve tried it enough times to give y’all an update.

Mitchell and Peach Luxury Hand Cream in Floral No. 1

Oooh, Luxury Hand Cream. Haha, how fancy. The fact that it’s from England makes it all the fancier. I haven’t tried the hand cream yet, but it’s really hard not to get a whiff of that smell. I feel…confused about it? Like it smells nice, but in a weird herbal way. Definitely not something I will pick up voluntarily. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not horrible either. You know what it is, it smells like something our dear sweet grandmother would smell like. Haha. I have no idea.. When I do wear it, I’ll make sure to ask around for people’s opinion.

Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser in Cucumber & Watercress

Cucumber, an ingredient in a skincare product, I’m not surprised, but watercress? I love eating watercress, but I had no idea they could be used for skincare. Huh, the more you know.

There was a seal on the tube so I was unable to catch what it smelt like. And it was pretty liquidy from sitting out in my mailbox all day, baking in the Arizona heat so if I were to take that seal off then and there, there would’ve been a mess.

I’m always on the look out for new skincare products that not only I can use, but also my brother and Mom can benefit from. We have different skin type, where as I am oily, my Mom dry with oily patch and my brother combo, oily.

Hopefully this product lives up to its name. I do believe it is nourishing, organic and moisturizing. So ya know, we’ll give it a go and see.

I will try my hardest to do an update on this month’s products for y’all. So sit tight and expect the update be up within the next few weeks.

If you’re also a iPster and received these same products, which ones were you most excited for? Least excited for? Share your experience. :)

Thank you for visiting and thanks for reading all. Please come back soon. :)
