Shop My Stash September 2019 Results and Monthly Empties

Hi All!  I’m back with my September Shop My Stash results!  I enjoy dipping into my collection and using products I haven’t used in a long time, or just haven’t given much of a chance.

My rule with this is if I don’t like the item after the month, I will move it out of my collection to make some room and let someone else enjoy it! You can check out my first Shop My Stash post for September.

I enjoyed most of these products.  The Jane Iredale face makeup kit and the IT Cosmetics Hello Cheekbones bronzer and highlighter are both really nice!  I used both of them a few times each week. The bronzer is very warm, but it worked well as I was losing my summer tan.

The PUR lip gloss is so pretty.  It’s hydrating and not sticky.  And I love the shade, Focused.  It looks nice on it’s own, over a lip liner and over a lipstick.  Also, it lights up and there’s a mirror on the side.

The only item I will probably let go of is the MGS Accessories Matte Liquid Lipstick in Posh.  It’s very drying.  I’ve never really been a fan of liquid lipsticks, but I keep trying!

Here’s photos with the eyeshadow palettes open:

The Urban Decay Naked Reloaded is my most used item this month.  I really enjoyed using this palette.  I’m pretty sure I tried almost every shade in the palette.  It’s so nice for everyday wear.  You can also make a more dramatic look for evening.    The mattes are really easy to blend and the shimmers are gorgeous!

This is also and Urban Decay palette and the formula is just as beautiful as the Naked Reloaded. It’s the  Urban Decay On The Run Mini Palette in Shortcut. I have made soft pink looks and dramatic, sparkly looks with this.  I will be keeping both palettes.

Now on to my empties:

I have a few empties to share this month.  I used up a few body creams that I have been working on over the summer. I loved the Body Shop Banana scent, but the gel texture of the Body Yogurt is not my favorite.  I would purchase this scent in the Body Cream. I would repurchase both Sol de Janeiro creams.  They are so silky and both smell amazing!

I enjoyed all three serums I used up.  I am working on other serums, so I probably won’t buy a new one for a while.

I also like the Koh Gen Doh wipes and may purchase them in the future. I like the Urban Decay Troublemaker mascara just fine, but I have ton’s of mascara to try out.


Stay tuned for October Shop My Stash — I’m hoping for cooler weather soon!

 

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Review — June 2019

img_0725-e1557612782240.jpg

Hey all!  It’s time for my June Ipsy Glam Bag Plus review! This is a subscription box that will always include 5 full-sized items. And the items included are mostly luxe or higher end items. This is such a great value for the high quality items included.

I have pretty much enjoyed this subscription. I usually only use a couple of the items I receive each month, so I’m not sure how long I will keep it.

Here’s what I received for June:

The total is $276.  That’s mostly because of the 111Skin booster.

I enjoy PUR’s products, but I am very stocked up on mascara.  I will add it to the pile or give it to one of my daughters.

The Trestique crayon and balm are way to dark for me.  I don’t wear berry shades.  I will be giving this to a friend.

Now this is a product I will use!  On the 111Skin website, it states:

Now formulated with increased Vitamin C levels, this concentrated treatment targets signs of hyper pigmentation, age spots, and uneven skin tone. The booster utilises actives which are designed to inhibit tyrosinase production, both reducing and preventing discolouration.

You can mix this with moisturizer or use it alone like a serum.  That’s probably how I will use it at night.  Actually, I will try both ways.  I’m looking forward to looking younger in a few weeks (I hope)!

This is an Ipsy collab with Tetris. Which is a little strange. This is a cute palette, but not something I will use.  I have so much eyeshadow (and have splurged on a couple of new palettes as birthday gifts for me)  I have a friend in mind who might like this.

So, I will be using one of the 5 products this month.  Sigh.  I’ve been trying to decide if I want to keep this box as I’m not very happy with it. I really like BoxyCharm more.  My June BoxyLuxe box had of course more products, but I could grab out any 5 products and love them more than these.

I’ve decided to give it one more month to wow me.  I’ve seen July spoilers for Pixi Beauty, Huda Beauty and Purlisse.  So I hope I get the Pixi and Huda products, then I’ll be happy.  But, I’ll probably get some weird makeup product I won’t use, LOL!
