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:

What I Got Myself for Mother’s Day (2014 Edition)

I make it a point to get myself something nice for Mother’s Day. This time around I found some really affordable gifts. 🙂

Image

Image

I’ve had my eyes on this nail polish set for quite some time. I originally received the Pardon My French mini nail polish from Color Club in the June 2013 Birchbox. This color was from the Wanderlust collection. I would periodically check the Birchbox website to see if this four piece mini set was still available.

Image

Birchbox offered another collection I liked as well. I received the Heirloom Pearls mini nail polish from Color Club in the April 2014 Birchbox. This color was from the Gala’s Gems collection.

Image

Image

Image

Image(L-R) Heirloom Pearls, Aquamarine Azulino, Gold Struck, Breakfast At…

These palettes from BH Cosmetics have been out for quite some time now. I was on the fence on whether or not I was going to purchase them. I kept seeing them on sale. I decided to buy the San Francisco and Malibu palettes during their Mother’s Day sale. I also purchased the liquid eyeliner.

I first found out about Nature’s Shea Butter when this company was on HauteLook. I ordered the Taste of Shea Mini Sampler. Nature’s Shea Butter had a Mother’s Day Sale on their website. This time around I ordered my favorites from the mini sampler pack. I also received samples of their soap.

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.
