THIS MONTH’S THEME IS…

Game Face

 

Okay, Okay, I can dig it. Take me back to the 90’s, baby! This month’s bag is mesh and has super bold neon colors contrasting the dark blue. It gives me mega windsuit vibes.

 


All of this month’s items!

 

Pretty Woman Neon Nail Polish in ‘Johnny’s Angels’ – VALUE $7.99

I’ve needed a good bright blue nail polish, and thanks to ipsy, I now have one!  The formula is smooth and easy to work with.  The color is bright and super fun.  And here’s an extra little surprise I found out; This color pops under black lights!

ABSOLUTE New York Eye Artiste Single Shadow in ‘posse’ – VALUE $4.99

I have soooooo many eyeshadow palettes, guys.. Sorry, but I just really don’t get too excited when I get a single shadow anymore, especially in the brown color range.  Give me something to play with, ipsy!  This color looks okay on, very subtle.  I just already know I’m never going to reach for it.  I think I will depot it & put it in a Z-Palette.

 

City Color Cosmetics Contour Palette – VALUE $6.99

How cute is this?!  I love this little contour palette.  It’s the perfect on-the-go size and the colors blend well with my skin tone.  What more could I want for $7?

 

Trust Fund Beauty Lipgasm Lip Scrub – VALUE $15

Another much needed item!  I can’t tell y’all the last time I used a good lip scrub.  And can we talk about the name for just a minute?  I know Trust Fund Beauty is known for their scandalous names, but “lipgasm”?  That’s pretty out there.  And I’m living for it!  This stuff is amazing.  Since it’s winter, my lips have been so dry and peeling.  This scrub makes them pillow-soft and luxurious.

NYX Lip Lingerie in ‘Satin Ribbon’  – VALUE $7

Yay! A lippie that’s more nude than the terracotta color I’m always getting!  It works okay with my skin tone, maybe a little lighter than I’m used to.. It kinda reminds of concealer, which actually might not be a good thing.  I think if I use a pinkish or mauve lip liner underneath, it would be more my taste.  It dries down pretty matte, but it is not long lasting and 100% transfer-proof like your traditional liquid lipsticks.  It does not claim to be though, so no points taken off for that in my book.
