November Ipsy Bag.

November Glam Bag

Finally! The long awaited review! Sorry for the delay, life’s just been busy lately.  I guess I’ll start from left to right.

 

Novex: Brazilian Keratin (2/5)

It’s one of the new products going around, hair food. It claims to “reinforce the structure of the hair, increasing shine and leaving hair healthy, manageable and soft to the touch” due to the keratin. I don’t find that it’s very effective. It does help to keep your hair soft but there’s a lot of better hair products out there. Not too excited about it. The competition is just better and about the same price.  The retail price for the full size goes for around $16.

 

Smashbox: Full Exposure Mascara (1/5)

I was really excited about this one but it was a huge disappointment. It really didn’t do much for my Asian stubborn lashes.  And it didn’t last long.  If you’re going for natural lashes this might be a good one for you.  I’m still searching for a mascara that will really make my lashes pop.  I have long lashes that refuse to stay curled for long.  The drugstore mascaras are much more effective than this.

Trestique: Mini Matte Lip Crayon (4/5)

I got it in the color Chili Red.  It’s very pigmented.  It’s a very vivid red. I think it would look really good on fair skin.  It applies very creamy.  It’s similar to the Bite lip crayons but not as matte.  Thus, not as drying. However, it does smear easily so a lip liner is a must.  I noticed that even though it fades off, it does leave a pink tint so that’s a plus.  If you plan on wearing it through meals, you will likely need to reapply a few times.  I do recommend this one.

 

Jelly Pong Pong: Liquid Gossamer (4/5)

It’s a very pigmented pink shimmer.  The directions suggest using on your cheekbones, brow bones, and down the middle of your nose.  It sounds like a highlighter but personally, I feel like it would look better as an eyeshadow than a highlighter since its so shimmery and pigmented.  It’s also pretty creamy.

 

INSPR Eyeshadow – Carnival (5/5)

This is also very pigmented.  I believe its almost like a bronze shimmer color.  Also, very creamy.  I really like this one.

Thanks for your patience and be sure to follow for more future reviews!

Bath & Body Works: Sleep.

   
 
I recently got this when it was on sale.  It was going for $6 for one.  My supervisor actually introduced me to this set at Bath & Body and I absolutely love it.

I don’t know if it actually helps me sleep or not but I really love the smell.  I also have this in the body wash and it makes my showers smell luxurious and relaxing.  After I shower, I use the lotion.

Honestly, I don’t really think aromatherapy really works on me but it’s really nice after a log day to smell sweet and soft.  The lotion feels very moisturizing on the skin.  It might feel a bit sticky on the hands though.  But I love it most for my arms and legs.  The scent is very strong so I don’t recommend it for people who are allergic to strong perfume scents because this can be too much.

For a more softer scent try the lavender chamomile version. It comes in a black matte bottle. It’s not as sweet and strong as this one.  I prefer to use the vanilla version for daytime and the black one before going to bed after a shower.
Ultimately, does it do what it claims to do: help you sleep? Ehhh, probably not.  Relaxing? Definitely!  And it smells really nice and does make you feel very moisturized for hours! 

Hair Mask.

hair maskI believe I got this a while back from Influenster in the Mox Vox Box? I’m not sure if that was the right Vox Box but it was from one the Vox Boxes back in April 2015.

I absolutely love this hair mask. It smells really good. I usually don’t like fruity smells but this one has a conditioner with a bit of fruity smell. I love conditioner smells.

The instructions say that you use it after your hair is clean and damp. I usually shampoo and condition my hair and then I use the hair mask. It leaves my hair so soft and smooth.hair mask back

At target, it goes for about $10 something.  It costs a bit more than I hoped but I definitely would buy it.

Hand Sanitizers

How’s everyone doing today? Good I hope. I went browsing a while back with my mom and my sister at the mall. Had to stop by the Bath & Body Works store to restock on hand Sanitizers. There was a 5 for $5 deal at the store so I ended up getting 3 for me and 2 for my boyfriend. The only scent in those picks that I repurchased was the Margarita one.

The scent for that one is really strong. Whenever I use it, someone always notices the smell in the room.
