Be a Bombshell Purchase from ipsy

Every Tuesday at 12:00pm (EST) ipsy has a different beauty deal. The Tuesday deals don’t last long. I came across the Be a Bombshell Summer Lovin Set for only $20.00. Knowing this deal could sell out I purchased this set without hesitation. Being an ipsy subscriber was my first exposure to the Be a Bombshell brand. I have really liked the products I’ve been receiving from Be a Bombshell in my ipsy bag.

The Be a Bombshell Summer Lovin Set included:

Em Cosmetics Haul

YouTube sensation Michelle Phan launched her cosmetics line in 2013. http://www.emcosmetics.com/. Like many of us I subscribe to her channel. I knew it was a matter of time when Michelle would have her own brand of cosmetics.

Michelle released The Life Palette Holiday Life: New Year’s Countdown Edition palette. I purchased this limited edition palette when it was on sale for 40% off. The regular price was $29.00. This palette is small enough to fit in my purse.

The colors in this palette are versatile enough for me to use for special occasions or every day.

HauteLook Haul: Featuring Ouidad and NYX

ImageI’ve always been curious about the hair care line Ouidad.  I know the line is geared towards people with kinky, curly, and wavy hair. Ouidad has been on HauteLook several times before. I decided to place my order the most recent time Ouidad was on HauteLook.

Normally when I co-wash my hair (using conditioner to wash hair) I will either use Quench Conditioner from Hair Rules or the Coconut Co-Wash from As I Am. With the weather being hot and humid in my area I need to wash my hair more often. I figured now would be a good time to try out the Curl Co-Wash.

Image

Using a leave in conditioner has made a difference in my hair care routine. I also wanted to try the Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner.

Image

It’s always a treat whenever NYX is on HauteLook. This cosmetic is already affordable but I just love the sets that are offered on HauteLook.

Image

Image

The Ultra Peal Mania pigments are very pigmented. I prefer to use pigments with a damp eyeshadow brush though.

The Blush is also very pigmented. These colors look great next to my darker skintone.

Sephora Mini Haul: NARS and OCC

Figure I’d treat myself to a couple of things for my birthday. This is what I picked up from Sephora.

  1. NARS Blush in Outlaw
  2. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Strumpet

Image

I originally went to Sephora to purchase a different blush from NARS. When I saw Outlaw I immediately fell in love with it. This blush is described as a soft rose tone with golden shimmer. I can wear this blush everyday.

Image

I completely forgot Sephora started carrying the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics line. I saw five different lip tar shades in stock.  I decided on Strumpet, which is described as a deep red-burgundy. I am definitely on trend with this lip color. I’ve been seeing a lot of bold lip colors for the Fall season.
