Last month I wrote a post on my first Ipsy Glam Bag and gave mini reviews for each of the products I received. The time has come now for my second bag, and just like the first, I was super excited to try out these items. All of the items are new to me but some I am more familiar with than others. There was even a hair product this time so I was really curious about trying that out. To see what items I received last month then check out that post by clicking HERE. Otherwise, keep on reading to find out more about what items I received this month and my thoughts on them.

Recently I was looking for some new makeup brushes to purchase and stumbled across the brand Spectrum. I have never tried anything from this brand but their products looked really nice so I thought I’d give them a go. This brand is vegan and cruelty free which is something I’ve been trying to branch into more. Not that I only use vegan and cruelty free products but I definitely want to try more brands that are. I also decided to purchase some other accessories because…well…they were too pretty to pass up.

Earlier this year I was searching for some facial serums and oils to try out. Specifically, I wanted to purchase a product with vitamin C, plus purchase a tea tree oil and rosehip oil. I have tried similar products in the past and while some were good and some weren’t, I still wanted to find some that were better. I went searching on Amazon and came across the brand Radha Beauty. I saw that their Rosehip and Tea Tree oils had good reviews so I went to the brands website to do a little more searching. Right away I loved that the company is “committed to providing our customer with all-natural, organic, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free products.” I was then able to find the exact products I was looking for at a reasonable price so I went ahead and purchased them….and so happy that I did….

I recently was gifted a subscription to Ipsy and received my first bag a few weeks ago. I have wanted to try a service like this for quite some time but just never got around to actually going through with it. I was super excited and very eager to get my first glam bag. In case you don’t know, when you sign up you take a quick questionnaire about the type of beauty products you’re interested in (which, for me, is almost everything lol) and then each month you get a bag sent to you with customized products inside based on your answers. To find out more about the products I received this month and my thoughts on each then keep on reading…

When I saw that Benefit came out with a Hoola contour stick I was super excited. I haven’t tried many contour products that weren’t powder but I have wanted to try some. I absolutely love their Hoola powder bronzer so I thought this product would be perfect. I had received an email from Sephora about being able to get a free sample so I took advantage of it and headed to Sephora to get my sample. If you have wanted to try a cream contour product and wonder how this compares to the powder version then keep on reading…

I know that Urban Decay came out with color correctors a while ago but I wasn’t really interested in trying them out then. For quite a few years now, at least four, I have been using the MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Bright Forecast to color correct my dark circles. I love the light orange/peach color because it really helps to counteract the blue/purple tones under my eyes. Well, a little while ago I was given a Sephora gift card and I was trying to think of what I wanted to buy with it. I decided it was time to venture out and try some new color correctors. I chose the color Peach since it states it’s meant for masking circles, as well as spots, and because it was the closest color to the MAC Prep + Prime I’ve been using.

This week is the last of my recent Que Bella face mask reviews. Earlier this year the brand came out with six new masks and sent them out to some beauty bloggers to try out and review. I was lucky enough to be sent these masks and I was so excited because I love the Que Bella products and have tried all of them, which you can check out HERE. Today I’ll be reviewing their Seaweed Hydrogel Mask and their Mix and Peel Honey Jelly Mask. Both of these masks are quite different compared to masks that I’ve tried before. I’ve never tried a hydrogel mask, just the typical cotton sheet masks, and I’ve also never tried a “mix it yourself” jelly sort of mask so I was super excited to try that out as well.

Last week I mentioned that I was lucky enough to be sent the new face masks from Que Bella that came out earlier this year to review. I have been a huge fan of Que Bella and their products for the past few years so I was super excited to try these out. I was sent six masks and did a review on two last week (click HERE to see that post along with all my other Que Bella reviews). The other four are from their “Professional” range. The two I will be doing this week are their Jasmine Mud Mask and their Moringa Oil Sheet Mask.

If you haven’t been following my blog for very long then you may not know that I have been a fan of Que Bella products for a while. So much so, that I have tried and reviewed all of their products (which you can check out by clicking HERE). Earlier this year the company brought out six new face masks and I was lucky enough to get sent these masks to try out and review (and simply that; I’m not being paid in any way). Today I’m reviewing two of the masks, the Watermelon Peel-off Mask and Superberry Mud Mask; while the other four mask reviews will be coming in the following weeks, so make sure you check back for those. For now though, check out these hydrating masks…..

A little while ago I was at Wal-Mart stocking up on some makeup items and I decided to purchase some new items that I’ve never tried before. I’ve seen the Flower Beauty Cosmetics for quite some time and have been curious to try some of the products out. I have read/seen some reviews on some of the products before so, based on the good reviews I read and saw, I decided to buy the highlighting palette and a blush. Then I just decided to try out the eye shadow brush and lip brush to see how well those compared to my other brushes from MAC, Sigma, Real Techniques and Morphe Brushes.
