September Sephora Play & Ipsy!

img_0278

As always, if you don’t know was Ipsy is, it’s a monthly beauty subscription service. For only $10/mo, you get five products and a makeup bag! If you want to sign up, you can do so here.

This month, I have to say is one of my favorite months. There is actually only one product that I am not at all excited about, but you’ll have to keep reading to find out which one. If you are new to my blog, then my reviews start from least favorite to most favorite! Keep on reading!

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme
This product is meant to make the lips look more plump. I already have plump lips so I don’t need any help in that category. Not to mention, people complained about burning lips when they used this. So, to the bottom of the list this goes.

EYEKO Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner in Black
It was hard trying to find an order for the next four items, but this liner is next on the list. I admit, it would have been higher had I not received Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner in Sephora’s box. BUT, I am always looking to compare liners. I have very hooded eyes, so it creates an extra challenge during application of liners.

GLOW for a cause BODY BUTTER Inspire
The body butter actually feels amazing! It’s not greasy and would work well on both hands and face. I don’t think it’s heavy enough for those hard hitting areas (knees, elbows, etc), but I’d love to toss this in my bag right now! (PS, it smells great!)

Onomie Powerful Priming Serum in Truth
I’ve never heard of a toning primer, but I’m intrigued enough to put this higher on my list. Not to mention, the primers I have been getting so far have been A+! Apparently, this can be used on it’s own or as a base for foundation so it’s versatile as well.

ToGoSpa Eyes by ToGoSpa in Green Tea EYES
Ah! I cannot wait to try these out! Lately, my eye bags have gotten out of control, so these will be thrown right into the thick of things. I’ve been enjoying my skincare routine and I am excited to see where these fit in and compliment that routine.

Sephora Play is also a $10 monthly beauty subscription box! This box comes with 6 products instead of the 5 in Ipsy. And again, I am going to start with my least favorite and work my way to most favorite! Starting with…..!

SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Shine Lipstick: Love Spell
I struggled with what to put first and finally decided on the lipstick. It’s really pink, and because of that, I don’t think it’ll look good on me. It’ll definitely take some gymnastics and creativity to make it work. It’s also really shear, so I’m not sure that it’ll play well with my vibrant, matte, lipsticks. Some good points, it seems really long lasting, and not sticky at all.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day® Night Cap Overnight Perfector
I like hair products, but they rate low because I assume they aren’t made for my hair. Reading the description, it seems like a night time hair masque that you wash out in the morning. It sounds like it’s meant for people who wash, or at least, rinse their hair daily. Despite that, it smells really amazing and feels like it might actually have some pretty good slip. It might not be a stand alone detangler, but might compliment my current routine by providing some more yummy hair nutrition.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel
Even now, I wonder if I should have really rated this under the hair cream, but I boosted it up because it’s a product that I have never tried. I’m really a minimalist when it comes to my brows and have never really cared for a brow gel. That being said, I’m eager to see if this helps in cutting down time needed to do my brows!

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation
I tried this on and this product is really deceiving! It looks really thick, but because it’s whipped, it goes on so thin and light! It’s oil free, so it would make my already oily skin any oilier and it actually settles really nicely without giving me that “shine” that other moisturizers sometimes cause. On top of that, it says that it can also be used as a primer/base for foundation.

Atelier Cologne Collection Azur – Sud Magnolia
Omg this is going to be my signature scent for the fall! It smells so, so good! I know perfume scents are 100% subjective, so reading a review of it is somewhat pointless. But it has “notes of magnolia from Louisiana, bitter orange from Seville, and atlas cedarwood from Morocco“. If there are two things in life that I love smelling, fresh scent and wood are it!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
I had to rate this highly because I was a day out from buying this before finding out this came in my box. I’ve used this liner a million times in the past and it’s extremely easy to apply (even with my hooded eyes) and it’s very black! The fast drying ability is what I love the most. What more can I say?!

Well, that wraps up September’s boxes rundown! What were your favorites for the month? Have you tried any of the products listed?”
