Ipsy

Oh hey guys. S’up? Ha ha. Yup. We’re casual like that.

Ok. Enough fooling around, you guys aren’t here to listen to me wax ridiculous. You’re here to find out about make up (if not I’m sorry you’re lost)!

A while ago I did something that I’ve been thinking about doing for about two years. I signed up for Ipsy. What’s Ipsy? It’s a beauty subscription! For the low price of $16 dollars a month they send me a beautybag with four samples and one full sized product. I know it’s ridiculous but I don’t care. It’s fun.

Even the packaging is fun.

I recieved a full size Cailyn lipgloss, a Mitchell and Peach hand lotion, a Pacifica Eyeliner, a double ended Crown eyeshadow brush, and a Nourish Organics facial cleanser.

I wore the gloss last night. I love the vampy shade and it’s unscented. The lasting power was alright but the colour bled into the lines around my lips quite badly. I gave the lotion to my mom because it has a strong floral scent which is really not my jam. Other than that I’ll have to report back at a later date.

Kiss kiss.

What do you think of beauty subscriptions?

Ambrosia

Pacifica¬†is a truly lovely line of products that a friend introduced me to a few years ago. It’s a collection of body butters, lotions, perfumes, candles, and body washes with scents¬†that are to die for. It’s all natural, and free from all of those nasty chemicals we hear so much about. It’s kind of hard to find, Whole Foods carries it along with a handful of other specialty boutiques. It can also be purchased directly from the website, and of course, via eBay. I was thrilled a couple of weeks ago when I found it at a variety store here in lovely Vancouver, and at a fraction of the usual rather spendy prices!

I picked up a bottle of the Indian Coconut Nectar body wash for about $10. This stuff is just gorgeous. The scent is a combination of coconut and vanilla, DELISH. It’s described on the back of the bottle as ambrosia (nectar of the gods, thank you Google!) and I’d say that hits the nail directly on the head. It works up to a nice creamy lather, and leaves your skin lightly scented. It’s perfect for summer, light, and fresh.

Have you tried out anything by Pacifica?
