I Got The Ipsy Cosmic Glow Mystery Bag

The Ipsy mystery Glam Bags are $14. The mystery Glam Bag Plus is around $30. The Cosmic Glow Mystery Glam Bag is $14.

The Crème Shop Rose Water & B 12 Complex Infused Essence Masks

I am always up for trying a new sheet masks. I think I am going to give the rose water one a go this evening. The packaging on both is also super cute.

Seraphine Botanicals Pink Guava + Primer Oil Free Illuminating Primer

I have been getting into more illuminating primers, so this will be a fun one to try. I will have to do a future post on it.

Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub

This is a ruby crystal microdermabrasion Exfoliator. That sounds a little scary. I am definitely going to have to toss this into my routine once I finish my physical exfoliator.

KVD Cake Pencil “Trooper Black 01”

I have tried this pencil before and I really enjoyed it. It stayed in place and lasted all day. I do wish I would have gotten a brown shade, but I can use black as well.

Shades By Shan “Irma”

This feels and swatches like a pretty basic eye shadow. I’m sure I can use it as an all over lid shade or possibly an inner corner highlight.

That was another fun mystery bag! I like that a KVD product was included as well as an illuminating primer that is a pretty decent size. It contained a good balances of makeup and skincare.

I got the October 2021 Mystery Ipsy Glam Bag

I mainly decided to get this because I really really like the bag. So every thing else is pretty much a bonus for me. The mystery glam bags retail for $14

Mini Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Dqy Moisture SPF 30

I have the full size of this product but I have yet to use it. I will probably try this mini size first to see if I like it. And if I don’t I can always pass the larger size onto someone else.

Love craft Beauty Number 2 Brush

The bristles are soft and it seems pretty sturdy. I’ll definitely use it for blush or bronzer

This Works Morning Expert Hyaluronic Serum

I have been getting a lot of Hyaluronic acid stuff lately. This is another little mini to add to my turn and burn project pan.

UOMA Level Up Mascara Mini

I love getting mini mascaras. I can actually use it up before the three month shelf life passes.

The bristles are kind of spread out and in a weird pattern around the wand. I am interested to see how this work.

Basic Beauty Eyeshadow Quad “Hot Cocoa Bomb”

This is a cute little quad and the shadows seem to be of pretty decent quality.

It was really buttery and smooth with the figure swatches and I am interested to see how they work with a brush. I am going to add this to my collection of mini palettes I keep on my vanity.

Sometimes I really enjoy getting this mystery bags. Sometimes they suck though. This was luckily not one of this times! I would be interested to know what products you got in this bag when it originally came out or if you have ordered the mystery bag as well!

America Influencer Beauty Bundle February 2022

This is a new to me box and I am pretty excited about it! It is $35 and it seems to include multiple products from one brand each month.

This month is Jason Wu. I have wanted to try this newer drugstore brand since I saw it featured in some YouTube videos. This box is a great way to try out a good assortment of products.

Jason Wu Magic Matte Oil $16

This product I am really looking forward to trying. I have pretty oily skin and I am interested to see how much of a difference this oil makes on my skin. Apparently it is supposed to be oily to matte instantly. It can be worn alone or as a primer. I’ll probably use it in both ways.

Jason Wu Saved By The Patch $12

I have some acne patches from another brand that I have been using and liking. I am glad to have more and hope they work just as well as the others.

Jason Wu The Bush $14

This is a vegan formula brow soap. I have been toying with the idea of giving soap brows a try and I guess this is my sign to take the plunge.

Jason Wu Stay In Line “Parisian Chic” and “Royal” $10

The Stay in Line lipliners are incredibly creamy pencil liners. The shades are pretty nice go to shades for me and I can see myself just wearing these all over the lips.

Jason Wu Flora 9 “Matte Agave” $15

I love the look of this little palette. I do t have a matte palette that is set up in quite the same way. The shadows are buttery and pigmented and seem like they will blend nicely. I will probably be doing a dedicated post for this palette (and many of the other products featured here) so keep an eye out for that!

Jason Wu Hot Fluff “Jelly Roll” and “Éclair” $12

These are both creamy matte lipsticks. They remind me a lot of the Milani Fetish Matte lipsticks formula wise. I will probably wear the more almost terracotta shade more than the bolder berry, but if I’m going to wear a berry now it will probably be this one.

As far as my first American Influencer Beauty Bundle goes this one was great to start off with! I got some great products from a brand I had really wanted to try. I am excited to see what the coming months bring.

Thank you for reading ❤️

Ipsy February 2022

Ipsy glam bag is $11 a month and contains 5 sample (sometimes full) sized beauty products and tools.

Complex Culture Easy Crease Definer Brush

I LOVE Complex Culture brushes! I have quite a few for face makeup, but this is my first one for the eyes. I am excited to see how well it performs.

Bella Pierre Banana Powder

I have the pressed version of this powder and I use it so much I have pan in it! I have never used a loose banana powder, so I am curious to see how using it ends up.

Bobby Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

This mascara has a pretty average wand. I think it will work well for my lower lashes. I am interested in seeing how it performs over all.

Zion Health Orange Blossom Hydrating Lip Balm

This balm smells great and feels even better on the lips. I am going to put this balm in my desk at work so I can make sure it gets the use it deserves.

Shaina B Miami Duo “MIA Mauve and Ice Palace”

This is a perfect little duo for me. It’s a nice basic crease shade and a highlight shade.

I am going to get so much use out of this! I can see myself reaching for it daily.

BoxyCharm Premium February 2022

Another BoxyCharm post! Premium is in the $35 range. I am really tempted to resubscribe to BoxyCharm Luxe.

Aceology Rose Quartz Gua Sha Facial Massager $45

I’m going to be honest. I’m never going to use this. I am going to give it to my mom. It is pretty though

Moon Lit Makeup Primed For The Night $18

I haven’t tried a new eye primer in ages. I’m excited to give this one a go.

UOMA Beauty Badass MF Lip Liner “Angelou” $16

This is a nice creamy nudey brown lip liner. It’s going to go great with all of my favorite lip colors.

Christophe Robbins Instant Volume Mist With Rose Water $39

This is a volumizing mist for thin fine hair. And it smells like rose. I am hoping it works well on my hair with out making it look greasy.

Vike Beauty Makeup Melt $24

So. This is a spray. You spray it on over makeup, massage it in, and then rinse it off to remove your makeup. This is going to be neat to try. Here’s to hoping it works well.

Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde Eyeshadow Palette $67

I have been toying with the idea of buying this palette since it came out. I’m super excited that I received it in BoxyCharm! I can’t wait to use it.

The formula is so nice!

BoxyCharm February 2022

The BoxyCharm base box is around $28 and contains five full sized (sometimes deluxe sample sized) beauty products.

Let’s just jump into my box!

Clara’s New York Stimulating Retinol Facial Serum $24.99

“A 96% blend of retinol and vitamin E oils intensely stimulates and moisturizes quenched skin.” I used up my Sunday Riley A+ retinol serum last month. I am not paying full price for that and I haven’t looked for a replacement. I am happy to have this and I hope it does something nice for my less than nice skin.

Saturday Skin YUZU Vitamin C Bright Eye Cream $32

I have accumulated quite the collection of eye creams. I am currently almost done with my Murad eye cream and I think I want to try this one next.

“This eye cream will improve moisture retention, hydrate, and blur the appearance of fine lines.”

This sounds like just what I need. The past month has been a JOKE it’s been so horrible. My under eyes look like I’ve took a stroll through hell. Hopefully this eye cream can help make it look like I’ve got my life together. (I do not).

Bali Balm Pineapple Lip Scrub $23

BOXYCHARM STOP SENDING ME PINEAPPLE LIP SCRUBS. IM ALLERGIC TO PINEAPPLE.

I guess my friends are going to get to fight over another pineapple lip scrub. Nice.

OPV Beauty Loose Setting Powder $22

For some reason I’ve been super into trying out setting powders lately. Hopefully this one is a winner.

Alleyoop Multi-tasker 4-in-1 Makeup Brush $28

This is neat. I like this. It’s going into my on the go makeup bag I keep in my backpack. I think it’s going to come in handy.

Here it is all put together. I probably won’t ever use the sponge end, but who knows.

That is it for my BoxyCharm base box. It’s a bit of a boring box. But I think I’ll get use out of everything but the lip scrub.

Ipsy January 2022

The Ipsy Glam Bag is around $11 a month and you get 5-6 deluxe sample sized makeup and beauty products.

Elaina Badro Blending Brush

The brush is very soft and doesn’t shed. It’s a nice addicting to my collection of too many eyeshadow bruhes.

Rose + Quartz Hair Mask

This seems like it will be a really good hair mask. It’s vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free. I am excited to give it a try once I finish my current hair mask.

IBY Sunkissed Glow Highlighter “Maldives”

This is a pretty highlighter. I don’t mind that it’s travel sized because highlighters are hard to get through. Maldives is a great color for me and I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it.

Tarte Ultra Creamy Shape Tape Concealer “Light Sand”

This is the item I picked out. I’m very excited to try it. It’s something I have wanted to give a try for a while now, this travel size will be perfect.

Purlisse Ageless Glow Serum BB Cream “light”

I am always up to trying a new BB cream. I have another Bb Cream from Purlisse that I really like, so I have high hopes for ageless glow.

BoxyCharm Base Box January 2022

I apologize for taking so long to get this post up. A lot of stuff has been going on in my personal life that has me extremely depressed. Doing anything right now is difficult and I just haven’t had the energy to write anything. I am trying to pull myself out of this and I’m hoping messing with some makeup will help to do so.

Farmacy Filling Good Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum $44

I think Farmacy is my favorite skincare brand so I am always happy to try something new from them. I have never tried a Hyaluronic Acid serum so I am interested to see what this does. I did get a Hyaluronic Acid serum from Studio Makeup in a box last month, but I have yet to try it. Honestly my skincare has been lacking with everything going on.

Aesthetica Cream Contour Kit $40

I have some brushes from this brand that I really like, so I am interested to see how well the cream contour performs. I’m not much for contouring, but I can definitely give it a try.

Earth Harbor Naturals Nymph Nectar Superfruit Radiance Balm $38

I am really interested in this brand. I have heard a ton of good things about it, but I have never tried it myself. This balm is meant to make your skin look bouncy and dewy. I am excited to see how well it works.

Haus Laboratories Glam Attack Liquid Shimmer Powder “Chained Ballerina “ $20

First off, I’m never going to use this. It’s a glittery black liquid/cream shadow. I wish I had gotten a different color because I have heard good things about this product. I am going to be passing this along to someone else.

Dragun Beauty Lip Job Liner and Sharpener “2.0cc” $18

All I know about this brand is that it was founded by a YouTuber who I have never watched. I believe the color corrector from this brand was a big thing for a while. The liner is a good nude color I’m sure I’ll get plenty of use out of and the sharpener seems to be great quality and will probably be replacing my old one that’s in pretty poor condition.

That’s it for my box! I’m pretty happy with everything omitting the cream shadow. I am sorry if this post feels a little rushed through and I’m sorry nothing is swatched. My boyfriend of close to two years left me and I am still trying to figure out how to be without him.

Thank you for reading and understanding 🌻🌻

BoxyCharm Premium January 2022

I got a lot of great stuff in my BoxyCharm Premium this month, let’s get into it!

Athr Beauty Desert Sunset palette $48

This palette has a beautiful color story. I cannot wait to give it a try.

The mattes swatch beautifully. The shimmers left a little to be desired, but we will have to see how they apply to the eyes.

Kosas Air Brow Tinted Volumizing Treatment Gel Soft Brown $22

This is a product I have wanted to try since it came out. I’m really excited to see it in my box. I think soft brown will be a great match for me.

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Palette $42

These are supposed to be their highlighter drops in pressed powder form. This is a neat concept, but blinding highlights are really for me. I am going to keep it long enough to give it a try, but I’ll probably end up passing this on to a friend.

LYS Beauty Secure Skin Gripping Primer Serum $20

I am all about gripping primers! I have a few from the drugstore. I am excited to use one that is sold In Sephora. I have to say, this is a great price for a makeup brand that’s in Sephora. I do have a bronzer from this brand that I really enjoy, so I have high hopes for this primer. I may just have to do a “test it out” post!

Juice Beauty Bamboo Pore Refining Mask $36

“Clear and hydrate your skin at the same time with this pore refining mask. Help protect against “maskne” with bamboo charcoal and kaolin clay to help detox, aspen bark to help smooth and hydrate, and exfoliating polyhydroxy acids for a softer, smoother complexion.”

That all sounds fantastic. I am a Covid Screener so I obviously have to wear a mask all day and work and the break outs are REAL. I am going to give this a try tonight and hope to see some improvement after a few uses.

Persona Cosmetics Lip Liner 90210 $14

This is a very pretty lip liner and the color is right up my alley. I think I will get a ton of use out of it.

My box was great! I’m really happy with everything, besides the highlighters, but I think I got my moneys worth!

My AM *Current* Skincare Routine

Skincare is SUPER important. It helps your makeup lay better, it keeps your skin healthy and fresh, and certain components can protect your skin from damage.

Skincare is very personal. What works for me might not work for you. But, I thought I’d share my current AM skincare routine with you all!

I have combination and acne prone skin. I am also paying attention to anti-aging products now that I’m 26.

Toner and Facial Mist

Byroe Bitter Green Essence Toner $95

The only reason I have this product is because I received it in a BoxyCharm. $95 is way more than I would ever spend on a toner when the drugstore has some great ones. This toner has left my skin feeling more hydrated and my breakouts have decreased since I have been using it. However, I don’t think this is a staple in my routine and I will be purchasing an ELF toner once this one is finished.

St. Ives Facial Mist $5.99

I got this mist from influenster. I couldn’t find the orange fragrance to link, so I linked the lavender instead. I’m sure it’s lovely too and I might need to purchase it.

First off, this mist seems so good and it really helps to wake me up in the morning. I heard somewhere that using a facial mist helps to prep your skin for the rest of your skin care routine. I’m not sure if that’s true, but I have really enjoyed the addition of a face mist into my routine.

Eye Cream

Murad Renewing Eye Cream $82

This is another product I only have because of BoxyCharm. Thanks to BoxyCharm I am stocked with high end eye creams.

I have really enjoyed this eye cream. It has definitely reduced my dark circles and has helped a lot with puffiness.

Serum

Kypris Antioxidant Dew $90

Another BoxyCharm item! I have no idea my routine was so pricey!

I really like this serum. It leaves my skin feeling very hydrated and gives it a beautiful glow. I will miss it when it’s gone. There’s no way I’m paying $90 for it.

Moisturizer and Sunscreen

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream $48

This is my second bottle of the atmosphere protection cream. Both came from subscription boxes. I really like having the added protection from pollution. I think this is a product I will repurchase. I like the protection and think it’s a great moisturizer. It claims to be for normal, dry and combination skin.

Tula Protect and Glow SPF 30 $36

Another BoxyCharm product! I would like to thank BoxyCharm for providing my skincare routine.

This is a nice SPF. It does give the skin a nice glow and it lays very well under makeup. It is lightly tinted yellow so it avoids the white cast.

Lip Care

ELF Lip Exfoliator Brown Sugar $3.20

My favorite lip exfoliator is currently on sale on the ELF website for $3.20! I have been using this product for years and I will always use it. It is the best and easiest to use lip exfoliator and it’s so affordable!

I couldn’t find my lip balms to link them because they are random ones from Ipsy. They work fine, but any lip balm or chapstick will do.

That’s my AM Skincare routine!
