Subscription Satelite: Allure Beauty Box August 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I know it’s weird to get two posts in one day, we will be busy getting new convention content so here goes!

Allure Beauty Box August 2021

This is my second Allure Beauty Box and glad to continue. This month, I do have one thing to say about one product I have tried and it’s not good but you will see. Understand these are my thoughts on it. This box is $23 a month and you get items that are mentioned in Allure or brands that have not been mentioned but have become editor’s picks. Also, they do give bonus items to new subscribers which I did end up with an eye cream which will come in handy. Let’s see what they gave to everyone this month!

Haruharu Wonder Black Rice Hyaluronic Toner

First up is from a brand I never heard nor try before and                                                                                                         

Mediheal Intensive Sheet Mask

Next up is a sheet mask from MediHeal! I remembered using these guys back in No Make No Life and glad to find these guys in Allure. They do spotlights on K Beauty Brands which are the range nowadays. This is a cotton mask soaked with moisture serums and do stay on the face without slipping. I’m glad to try these guys again because after leaving No Make No Life, I was sad that I wouldn’t get a sheet mask from them again but I was wrong. So, I will have to see how this one go! This retails for $19.

Beautuniq Beauty Blush Serum in Magenta Sky

Here we go guys! The item I tried today in my makeup and a dap they say! Apply it with your fingers they say! It ruined makeup look! WTF!?!? This thing sucked! They say that this a water nourishing serum that is supposed to give you a raspberry flush. It did not with me! RJ came home and saw it and he told me it made me look sunburned and that it also made my forehead look pale in comparison to the rest of my skin. Also, it runs all over the place like liquid lipstick. I am sorry! I can’t wear this on my face as a blush! I know it can also go on the lips but I am also worried I would have the repeat of the Ribbon from Colour Pop situation! If you guys get this, do not try it! Beautuniq, if you are reading this! Make this as a stick or put it in a pan if you want to do a cream gel or at least a better tube. Having a tiny bit won’t work with the amount of pressure you push down on this thing! I had to clean my makeup off because of how bad it looked! Stay away from this product and not putting the price!

Real Her I’m Resilient Eye Liner in Copper

Next up is an eyeliner pencil. I’m glad I got this as the other makeup item because can’t really go wrong with an eyeliner unless depending on the person it does smudge all over. With pencils, I don’t have an issue with! I will see how well it goes on my eyes once I start using it. This retails for $16.

111 Skin Y Theorem Day Cream

Final item is from 111 Skin which is a very pricy skin care company! Trust me, when I saw the price of this thing, I was glad I am only using it once and glad to just get it in this box. I understand that you should have great skin care but you don’t have to go overboard and spend so much money on it when there are great drugstore options out there. Yes, I have and loved Murad but I do get that on sale through 21 Days of Beauty. Anyways, this is a pretty good day cream since I am using it right now before I use sunscreen and it doesn’t really irritate my skin like the moisturizer, I got last month. It is also a pretty good size with what you get. If you can’t afford this one, I would say look into other day creams from other brands so there you go! Here is the price…$270. I know right!?

Well guys, that is it for this month’s box! I tossed the blush and everyone who has seen my horrific photo did not like the color except one but they said to blend. It can’t blend! I will try the Colour Pop serum blushes since someone suggested those. The other products in this month’s box do excite me though since I am already enjoying the day cream from 111 Skin and can’t wait to use the sheet mask. I did say I packed the toner to use while at the convention which stay tuned for all our coverage and any interviews we get to do! I will have my Pixel Book Go with me to do any posts as well. Until next time!

Subscription Satelite: Allure Beauty Box August 2021

Subscription Satelite: Glam Bag August 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! Another post for you all!

Glam Bag August 2021

Another subscription for you guys and that is my Ipsy Glam Bag! I’m glad to get it early since I didn’t have any add-ons this month after getting my flat iron last month. I also find the items very convenient in this month’s bag since I did pack two and may do with another for their convenient travel size. This bag is $12 a month except in October it will be raised to $13 due to how many new brands they are starting to feature and glad that they have newer brands to introduce to us. You do get brands ranging from independent to some luxury and you get them in deluxe or even full-size if you’re lucky. Let’s see what I got this month!

Beauty For Real 24/7 Gel Eyeliner in Olive

First item is the Beauty for Real 24/7 Gel Eyeliner in Olive and this is what I chose for this month’s bag. I was happy to get this since it was a nice change from getting black liners all the time and I do sometimes do green eye looks and would love a green liner to balance things. It claims it’s a waterproof formula that doesn’t budge and it’s very smooth as well. You can also smudge this or even give a nice tightline if you wanted. I will try this out and see how it goes. This values at $16.

F. A. H. R. A. Brushes Rose Gold 25 E Blender

Next up is from F. A. H. R. A. and glad to get another brush from them since I have loved all their brushes I’ve tried over time. I did pack this one for the trip since I only packed one shadow which is a blue one to match the newly designed shirts and wanted something to wear for the weekend without much time to waste and this brush would help blend the shadow. I do like the shape it gives and it’s more of a pencil in a way which I do like. This is a dome shaped brush with densely packed bristles to help with smoky eyes. I do love that and can’t wait to use it on my eyes. This values for $11.

Feel Beauty Daily Hemp Cleanser

Next up is a cleanser which I am going to try and find and pack it since I would want to try this on the trip and the size is perfect for travel! One thing I do like about this subscription is that you can travel with these samples without the trouble. Not only this contains hemp seed oil but also other non-irritating ingredients that would strip the skin. It can also be used for cleaning off makeup which makes me happy since not only I would have makeup wipes but would love that extra step to clean off my face during the weekend. I will let you guys know how it worked out!

Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek in Work

I packed this since I heard that Atlanta could get a bit hot so why not try another cream product that doubles as a lip and cheek and this is what Milk made this into! This product is a dusty rose shade that can give the cheeks a nice tint and same with the lips. This product is made with mango butter, peach nectar extract, and avocado oil to help plump the skin on contact. I love that idea since my skin can be a little dry especially with how hot it has gotten in Florida and knowing my skin will take a hit with the switch next weekend. I will try this out and see how it goes with its nice small travel size!

Pur On Point Mascara with Hemp

A lot of hemp items this month but I did get this mascara though! This mascara is made with plant-based ingredients and it’s a multi-tasker where it does the same thing most mascaras do as in lengthen, volumize and other things to make the lashes look nice. I will give this a try but won’t do it during the convention since I already packed my Fenty one from GB X! I will use it with other makeup looks though!

That is, it for this bag! I’m glad to get a few things to use during RangerStop next weekend in Atlanta since I’ve seen some people use their products during travel due to the deluxe sizes helping during a weekend or a week away. I hope I can find the last Glam Bag with the cleanser since knowing the makeup wipes won’t be the only items, I will use to help clean my face. Stay tuned for the next post because it’s Allure Beauty Box time!

Subscription Satelite: Glam Bag X August 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new post@

Glam Bag X August 2021

Unfortunately, I lost the card for last month’s GB Plus but I am making up for losing that with starting with Glam Bag X. This is a quarterly version of the Glam Bag where you get more luxury brands and more independent ones as well. This costs $50 but you get a lot of stuff for the price! This month, it was all about Holsi and her brand About Face, let’s see what I got this month alongside my choices!

About Face Light Lock Powder in Smother: First up is my item from About Face. This is a powder highlighter that can be applied with a brush or fingers and it is made with lavender and silver pigments. So, basically an icy lavender shade! I am so excited about using this! I do enjoy a nice highlight and will see how this goes. This does retail for $30.

Athr Beauty Moon Light Crystal Pallet: Next up is a product by Athr Beauty. This is a shimmery shadow pallet with eight shades and the shadows are made with coconut oil, rose quartz, and sapphire crystals. When I saw this being in my bag as a choice from Ipsy, I was really excited since I hardly get shadows that are shimmery in BoxyCharm. I do love my mattes but glad to balance with some shimmer. I will have to do a single eye look with this. This retails for $58.

Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Mascara in I’m Black: Next up is a product from Fenty. I find Rhiana’s music okay but I have heard her makeup brand has amazing products. Plus, it’s the first brand that has made many foundation shades that included everyone. Which caused some brands to either rag on her or follow suit. Makeup should be all inclusive people! Anyways, I didn’t try the foundation due to how many people say it’s not great for certain skin types so I wasn’t going to risk it but glad to get a mascara from this brand to try. I think most times I tend to get a new brand in my bag it’s a mascara. Not hating it! This claims to bring thickness, volume, and length to the lashes with the brush and the formula is waterproof without leaving smudges. You know what? I should take this with me to Atlanta! Why? I hear it gets hot up there and I need something to beat the heat if need be. I will put this through the test while doing press at RangerStop guys! Stay tuned for the report! This retails for $24. If I find a Sephora, I want to try a contour stick.

Herbivore Botanicals Emerald Deep Moisture Facial Oil: Next up is a product by a brand called Herbivore Botanicles. I never heard of these guys until now. This is an oil that helps the skin become calm and moisturized and protect it from harsh environmental factors. It does contain hemp seed oil, squalene, and a few other ingredients. I will definitely use this since Florida is known for its harmful sun rays and some pollution. I will give it a go. This retails for $48.

Volition Beauty Yoapta Tea Glow Moisturizer: Next up, another skin care product and this time a moisturizer. This contains a new kind of tea called Yoaptan Tea which is a new version of Matcha which is interesting. It helps the skin re-energize since it can look tired. I will definitely give this one a try since I have loved the green tea masks from Tony Moley and Purlisse. I will see how this goes! This retails for $39.

Briogeo Farewell Frizz Hair Dry and Heat Protectant Cream: Now, first item of my choices is from Briogeo. I remembered trying their Don’t Despair Hair Mask all thanks to other boxes and glad to see a full-size item in this box since I haven’t gotten full size items from these guys before. When I lived with my parents, the budget didn’t really allow this brand but at least I get to try an item again from them. This cream contains rose hemp, argon, and coconut oils to help with frizz and breakage in the hair. It also helps protects it from 450-degree heat, which is what most hair dryers and flat irons give off. I did get a new flat iron as an add-on. I will have to see how this product goes once I try it. This item retails for $24.

Kimchi Chick Beauty Thaila Blush in 01 Pinky: Next up is an item by Kimchi. You guys may remember that Kim Chi was a contestant on Rupaul’s Drag Race and had started her own makeup brand. When I saw this, I had to choose it except it came broeken. So, I’m waiting for a replacement. This is supposed to be a pin and peach combo to be able to swirl together to make a pinkish peach glow. If this comes in one piece then I will try it out! This retails for $15.

Tarte Clay Pot Shadow Liner in Rose Gold: Final item is from Tarte and it’s an eyeliner this time! I feel like this is a nice change since I haven’t really tried any eyeliners from these guys as of yet. This is an eye shadow and eyeliner hybrid which you can wear either way depending on the look you want to go for. This is made with rose gold minerals and Amazonian clay. I will use this as an eyeliner. I would even use this with the Athr shadow pallet. This retails for $21.

Subscription Satelite: Allure Beauty Box July 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from travelling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a return of a beauty box!

Allure Beauty Box July 2021

I cancelled this box because I felt bored with it and that I can get some items from the drugstore as easily. But realized there are times where trying items I haven’t tried before is important to get a better idea of the product without going into it blindly, no pun intended. After cancelling BoxyCharm and just sticking with Ipsy, I kind of missed this box and when they sent an email about a free gift that is worth a lot, I decided why not get back into it? So, it looks like the price has been raised from $15 a month to $23 a month and boxes can be worth over $200 with items that have spotlights in Allure Magazine. I do catch articles that interest me but of course seeing some of the top lists help my purchasing decisions. Let’s see what I got in this first box of being gone for two years.

Siate London Trend Pallet Bronzed: First up is an eye shadow pallet from Gate London. I neveCiate London Trends Bronzed Pallet: First up is a pallet from Ciate London. I have tried products from these guys in the past and enjoyed them so far. This is a nine pan pallet with earth tones and sunset shades mixed with matte and metallics. I will have to see how this goes even with my favorite eye primers. This pallet retails for $24.

Able Skin Care Retexturing & Resurfacing Duo Moisturizer: Next up is a product from Able Skin Care. I think I’ve seen this in some articles but never tried them if I remembered. I’m glad to find this in my box! This is a product that can help sensitive skin, it has Niacinamide and Lactic Acid to help with calming the skin and keeping it soothed throughout the night. The price for this thing is just whoa but I am glad to get a sample at least. I’m sorry I won’t buy skin care for this price which this retails for $132. I understand skin care is supposed to work over time and should be bought the most when it comes to price but there are drugstore brands I do love that are half the price or even more.

Acure Brightening Vitamin C Jelly Mask: Next up is a product from one brand I got in the past in this box and that is Acure. This is a mask that has antioxidants in it such as Vitamin C and does tighten in order to help with moisture. After a bit you do have to wash it off. I don’t miss having a wash off mask but this would be something worth to try. I don’t see a retail price but I have a feeling it may be high.  Wait! Found the price! It retails for $19.99.

La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Serum : Next up is a product from a brand I tend to see advertised on YouTube and seen on Ulta. This is a luxury brand from what I’ve seen and I hear their sunscreen is a bit popular but it looks like I got a serum in this box. I’ve been using a Good Molecules serum and glad to get a serum to try from La Roche-Posay to at least try not buy. This has a combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 for moisture. I will have to see how this works with my skin! This retails for $29.99.

Winky Lux Uni-Brow Universal Brow and Lip Pencil: Next up is a product from Winky Lux. I was tempted to get their coffee cat pallets but Wet N Wild got my money for that instead. Oh well! This is a universal brow pencil and from the looks of it can be used for the lips as well? I think I will keep this on my brows since they are dark brown and will have to see how this goes since I can purchase this from Ulta. I may have to take this with me to Atlanta. This retails for $16.

Nature Labs Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner: Last two items are a shampoo and conditioner that won a Best of Beauty Award from Allure. These help with frizzy hair and also color treated hair. When I saw this in the magazine and knowing they are two tubes in my box, I am glad they did include these since I have frizzy hair. I have to see how well this goes. These two retail for $15 each!

This was a really good box! I know I was a bit harsh on it at first but I feel that this is worth the $23 since we are trying to take care of our skin and hair. I will have to see how each item goes! I can’t wait to see what comes in my August box since I did come back as another subscriber another item for new people will arrive. Next will be my Glam Bag Plus!

Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag July 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! Time for another post!

Glam Bag July 2021!

So, last week I got my Ipsy Glam Bag and glad I did since this tends to be later than usual. I was glad to get it early and was able to use some of the items. This bag is $12 a month and you get five deluxe size items to try out. Also, some full-size ones. Let’s see what I got!

Add-Ons: Let’s start with add-ons. It’s been a while since I got anything from this category and went with the Foxaby Marble Flat Iron which usually retails around $100 but got it for half off. I’ve been in the market finding a new flat iron since there are times when I straighten my hair it goes back to wavy the next day. This happened at our place but it did hold for the next morning at our newer place since we live in a cooler area. I will have to see how this goes since there were reviews saying that someone with thicker hair had some trouble while others had an easy time. I will have to see how well it works on my hair. It did also come with a finishing cream to keep the frizz out. Since I did purchase this, I also got an extra which is the F. A. H. R. A. tweezers which are double ended ones that can be used for applying lashes and pulling hairs. As you know I don’t wear lashes so I used these to help with my chin hairs.They’re not that bad, just a little hard to grip the hairs sometimes but they pull pretty well. Not bad as a freebie so I will keep trying them out!

Bloom Daydreamer Gentle Ultra Hydrating Facial Cleanser: First up is a facial cleanser. It’s been a few years since I received a cleanser in my Glam Bags and this was a new one. I have been using this in my shower to clean my face off since I use the Tony Moley AM Gel Cleanser when I wake up. This did sting a little since it’s a new product for my skin and sometimes that does happen when introducing a new item to your routine. It is meant for sensitive skin and supposed to add hydration, however my skin doesn’t feel it and the smell is weird. I don’t think I will purchase a full-size one since I already use some beloved products.

First Aid Beauty Hello Fab Coconut Priming Smoothie Moisturizer: Next up is a product from First Aid Beauty and it’s their Hello Fab Coconut Priming Smoothing Moisturizer. I did use this up since it was a pretty small sample size.This is a moisturizer that helps with fine lines and wrinkles and prep the skin for makeup. I didn’t know about the primer part since I did use this both night and morning since I do use moisturizers both morning and night. At least it did prime my face for the sun screen since I had hardly worn any face makeup to work. I found this product to be okay though. I did enjoy the First Aid items I have tried so far and I have primers I haven’t used yet and some I have purchased and need to use them. I don’t think I will get a full-size either but at the same time there are times where the sample doesn’t justify the experience. I may see about getting the full-size when it goes on sale to give a better try-on.

Kaleido Cosmetics Lip Mask Gel Conditioning and Repairing Lip Mask: Next up is another lip mask from Kaleido Cosmetics. This is a tinted lip mask that helps rehydrate the lips and it contains watermelon seed oil, jojoba, rose hemp oils and other oils to help the lips. I need to get into the habit of using these to help my lips since they tend to get dry from some lip products and other factors. I will have to see how it goes.

MOTD Lighting Crew Brush: Next up is another brush and this time it’s from MOTD which I have been enjoying their brushes so far. This brush has very flexible bristles that let someone be able to blend any loose or pressed highlighters on the high points of their face. I was expecting a fan brush since sometimes highlighting brushes take on that shape but this was a rounded brush. I will have to try this out when I put highlighter on.

Real Her I Am Radiant Lip Gloss: Final item in the bag is another item from Real Hear. This lip gloss is a nude brown that has a non-sticky formula and can be worn either alone or over other lip products. I haven’t tried it yet but will when I have to reach for a nude lip gloss while at work. I have gotten products from this brand. I don’t give it much love. I should do a post on brands I haven’t given much love to in a while and should do that in a little while. Glad to try another product from this brand.

That finishes this post! I am still currently waiting on my Glam Bag Plus since they had an extra and added some products I can’t wait to try. Next month will include my next Glam Bag X. ALso, I just re-subscribed to Allure Beauty Box. After unsubscribing from BoxyCharm, I felt that Allure may have gotten better so I will be giving it another chance to see how well they redeemed themselves. They also rose their price so see what they started including this time around.I’m supposed to be getting this month’s box despite it being the end of the month. I do have to say that this bag did stick to the essentials pretty well and can’t wait to see what else they will include in my bag since I did choose my item yesterday. Let’s see what happens. Next post will be items I’m not missing. Stay tuned and follow us on Twitter @ Nerdy Shique

Cosmetic Controversy: Toxic Sunscreens?

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from the vast nerd universe! I am back with another post that is kind of serious.

Disclaimer: THis post is based on research I looked at on my own. What I say is based on the info I found, I am not a dermatologist, a scientist, nor agree with the Environmental WOrking Group, please respect my thoughts, observations, and opinions I present in this post.

Sun Screen Toxic?

I know this seems a bit of a stretch but it is a good topic for the summer since I have been wearing more sunscreen on my face lately. I usually have some sensitivity but I found something I can wear without spending a lot of money either, which the Murad one is something I like but can only get during the 21 Days of Beauty from Ulta if I’m lucky! Reason for this is that I saw on MakeUp Awesomeness that someone was looking for a sunscreen that was not toxic. Me and other people posted our comments saying there is not a real definition of what’s toxic and non-toxic with sunscreen. Like the no real definition of clean beauty, it goes the same way with sunscreen because of how Dermatologists are the real ones people should be listening to rather than the Environmental WOrking Group.

I bet you’re wondering why not listen to EWG when they provide vital info? Some information from different places may be helpful but I have heard that they bring fearful information that can cause more harm than good and we have to watch out when it comes to it. As in, don’t always believe everything you see or hear. That is why I was skeptical of Gwenyth Paltrow after her video earlier this year talking about non-toxic skin care and how tos stay away from moisturizers with “antifreeze.” I may have to do a post on the truth about moisturizers since there is no real truth about it since there is a difference in ingredients but I am focusing on sunscreen here. Again, we can’t say that chemicals that are used are regulated since the Food & Drug Administration has put proposed rules for brands who have been making their sunscreens with Oxybenzone and a few other chemicals should have more studies towards them since they are seen as endocrine and hormone disruptors and coral reef bleaching agents. I will talk about the coral reef bleaching and the truth behind it later here, but the thing is that people should still put on sunscreen whether with these ingredients since they are known for absorbing UV Radiation but can cause irritation. The FDA also suggests using sunscreens containing Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide, which are in more mineral based sun screens. It’s hard to say which ones to avoid, however this past week, Johnson & Johnson did recall aerosol based sunscreens due to having Benzene which is said to cause Leukemia and other blood cancers. Now, that’s a scary thought! If I were anyone, I would stick with the mineral based since some ingredients still need to be looked at. I even researched into the FDA’s regulations for sunscreens and the last one I’ve seen was dated back in 2012 when we’re halfway through 2021 already.

What about coral reefs? EWG and some other sources have said that chemical sunscreens cause coral to bleach except it’s not the real cause. The real cause behind this is climate change. Yes people it’s real! As the earth warms up so do our oceans and in some areas it’s warmer than others which causes an uptick in the temperature. Also, the rising waters can be a factor with the stresses since I saw one video where they talked about how islands are sinking and talked about top five islands and one of them happened to have bleached coral reefs. I bet you’re wondering, what is the significance of coral? They protect land from hurricanes and rising sea waters that cause erosion and that’s a problem for us now since a lot of land is sinking. Not only that, human waste, also known as pollution, contributes to the problem of coral bleaching since there is so much of it happening where plastics and other trash is being tossed into the sea. There is even a floating island of trash from when I read one book a while back. I bet you’re wondering, The only way of reducing the coral reefs from bleaching is by reducing our pollution, including carbon pollution which could be catastrophic over the coming years even to the middle of the century. After a big bleaching event, it takes time for the coral to recover but if conditions improve then it would get better. 

https://www.marineconservation.org.au/coral-bleaching/Well, I think that is it for this post. I feel that there is no real idea of a toxic sunscreen, it’s just the chemicals that we need to watch out for and glad that Johnson & Johnson is taking the first steps with one set of aerosol ones. If you guys are concerned, just go with a mineral one with Zinc and Titanium Oxide rather than a chemical one, and of course if you are still concerned, there are always the dermatologists out there that would help. I suggest watching Cassandra Bankson on YouTube and other skin related ones are the Style and Beauty Doctor and James Welsh since they have a lot of information about skin care and sometimes talk about sun screens. Also check out the resources I have below. I’m still waiting on my Glam Bag and GB Plus at the moment, I am going to do a post on things I don’t miss to lighten up https://www.aad.org/public/everyday-care/sun-protection/sunscreen-patients/is-sunscreen-safehttps://www.prevention.com/health/a27556739/oxybenzone-sunscreen-safety/the mood!

Beauty Quadrant: Beauty Items Over MLM Items

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I’m back with a new post!

Drugstore Products Better Than MLM Ones

This feels a bit different with this post but I feel like doing this. I was inspired after being at a makeup panel during one of the online NFB State Conventions and it featured two people from two MLMs, as in Multi-Level Marketing companies. These companies are pyramid schemes that focus on creating up lines but also have some products. The products, from my experiences, aren’t great in quality and expensive, except one which had more drugstore pricing. As you can probably tell, I am anti-MLM since I haven’t been liking Avon and had bought a Mary Kay lip gloss before and was not that great either. As someone who has been buying items in both prestige and in drugstores, and also had beauty subscriptions on top of it, I have used better items. Let’s see what I feel in each category! I do have a disclaimer though!

Disclaimer: This post includes products I believe are better quality and can be purchased at a better price. Please, if you are in an MLM, don’t think I’m just bashing you as a person but understand that there are better products out there and I have seen the videos on the different brands in MLMs and heard how poor quality most items are but I am focusing on beauty.

Hair Products: I think I should start off with hair products. I know for one thing that a lot of us women and men pride on our hair. We do sometimes put it through so much, as in dying, priming, straightening, and sometimes people do have different conditions that cause fall out, which I do feel bad for them. I have heard that Monat, which is a brand that prides itself on hair products, such as their shampoo and conditioner, except people had lost their hair because of how they are made. Even though some reps say that the hair is the-toxin from all of the items that were used in the past. Um, hair doesn’t work like that. I remembered when Fox Kids did have facts and mentioned how hair tends to grow and I believe that and can grow fast depending on the person. RJ’s hair does grow faster than mine. When it comes to hair products being better than Monat, I do love some from Herbal Essences in the shampoo and conditioner department. Not only do they have the markings on the bottles but they smell really good! Plus, they help keep my hair moist. I do enjoy the mango shampoo and conditioner. While styling items are a mixture of prestige and drugstore and they include the Garnier Sleek & Shine Frizz Control Serum, sometimes if I get my paws on it, some items from Marc Anthony, R&B from Lush which I loved since it first came out, and do use items from Ipsy. I also sometimes get hair items in bundles with hair stuff in their offers section. With dry shampoo, I do love Dove’s dry shampoos and now love leave-in conditioner sprays. In the end, you have a lot of items to choose from. Plus, they don’t cost an arm and a leg since I hear the prices for Monat products are out there. One example is the Monat Renew Shampoo for $30 when you can get a bottle of shampoo from Lush for $24 or a bottle of Suave for$5. And of course your hair won’t fall out.

Face Masks: Next up is skin care but focusing more on face masks. I do enjoy a sheet mask sometimes since there are times where I love to pamper myself. One MLM I seem to run into when it comes to skin care is Mary Kay. Remembered when I mentioned the lip gloss above? Well, the day I got that gloss was when a rep was invited to my job to talk about makeup and had some people try a charcoal mask. I didn’t try it on my face since I had a doctor’s appointment and didn’t want to appear with a half face of makeup. I did try it on my hand though. One thing I did not like the feel because muy sensitive skin can’t handle concentrated charcoal and this mask was made of that and what miffed me was when the rep said that charcoal was good for all sensitive skin types, except my hand where the mask was patch tested on was tingling too much and had to ask for the wet rag to take it off. I will disprove the charcoal claim that this rep had made. I researched it and the snippet says that “Charcoal is best for oily skin and can remove excess oils.” I have sensitive skin and dry skin on top of it so I can’t use charcoal thank you very much but the sheet masks with it do feel good I felt that this representative didn’t do her research, from all the videos I’ve watched of people working at Sephora and Ulta, with all these videos and most of them talking about skin care is that they have to research to get to know about the ingredients. Heck, even employees at Lush have to research ingredients to make sure they match the products to customers, goes the same way with Ulta and also have to do the same thing. If they give the wrong item, then they would have an unhappy customer. One best thing if you’re a beginner is researching your skin type or see your dermatologist about what skin care is right for you and what skin type you have because it would help you with what you need to look for. When it comes to cheaper skin care items, I suggest Tony Moly since they’re a well-known K Beauty brand. You can also take a look into other K Beauty brands. HEMPZ is also another pretty good skin care brand since they have hemp seed oil in their skin care and hair care, which I could have mentioned but never tried with their shampoo or conditioner. Also Good Molecules are rising in popularity since you can find them through Ulta, trust me their Hyaluronic Acid Serum is pretty nice if you dry skin and they are great for all skin types!

Eye Shadow: I’ve only really tried Avon eye shadows in the past and was not a fan. Although they have drugstore prices, I’ve tried better to be honest. I even remembered having issues knowing the darker and lighter shadows apart in the duos I had my dad tell me which one was which and knew it may be an issue once I lived on my own. The lady at the flea market, which is where I went to purchase these alongside a trio and a blush, which I will get to later, chose based on what she thought would be best for my eye color. I do admit I liked nude shades and agreed that purples and blues fit well, I felt the shadows would be better. I did see reviews about Avon quads having reviews that they take more than one application to be visible. I did see one review on MakeUpAlley that someone who was very fair had issues with colors not fitting her skin tone. Another thing I had issue with besides the color match is how small the space is to fit your brush. The duos I picked up were hard to fit my favorite brushes into the space to grab the color. Even the trio had that same issue as well and I felt I hit the pan a bit too easy. Speaking of size, Mary Kay also has the same issue too. I will be hitting this in lip glosses but what you pay for is pretty small. I read people’s reviews on Amazon for the chrome shadows and they pay $13 for a shadow the size of a postage stamp. If you want something bigger that is worth your buck, the Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows fit that bill. I have enjoyed these a lot over time and they are very pigmented as well. Not only that, the single pans they sell which are $5 a piece also have decent sizing. I would suggest Coastal Scents but they recently went out of business. I still love their Hot Pots and they are pretty good for what you pay for when they are around. If you want a pallet that would be better for your budget, Urban Decay’s Naked 2 Basics alongside the Mini Naked Heat and the Mini Naked Honey also have decent sized pans you can fit your brush in. If you want singles, Mac also has really good shadows despite being in the range of $15 to $20 but you can fit your brush into the pot like Colour Pop.

Lip Gloss: Here we go! I love a good gloss like anyone and some of my favorite brands for lip glosses include NYX, MAC, Dose of Colours, and Jeffree Star. (I know the last one is not everyone’s favorite brand but I admit the glosses are good!) Like I said above, Mary Kay’s lip glosses are also small for what you pay for. Remembered when I mentioned that rep above? She was selling some items and there is one item I will mention later and that is more of a DIY item. I only bought the gloss since I did have to pay my copay for my doctor that afternoon and when I got the gloss I was surprised that it was small for $16. Even though MAC did have slightly smaller tubes back when I first got into them, they have improved and gave them better packaging. Plus, the Butter Glosses from NYX are $4 for the size I got the Mary Kay one, seriously it was the same size as a Butter Gloss. The formula was not my favorite either! It was too sticky! I hear people say that glosses tend to be pretty sticky depending on who you get it from. My tip is of course to use a tissue to dab off excess. This was beyond sticky even after the tissue and I just left it in my desk drawer at work because I’m not wearing it anymore. Plus, I’d rather have my lips comfortable with my favorite lip products, thank you very much!

Nail Strips: I rarely wear these but I feel like mentioning them since one of the reps that were invented during that panel came from Color Street. I felt throughout the panel they were pretty over hyped and ironically enough they were mentioned in one of the Illuminati’s videos the Monday after. I was surprised with what I found out about them, that the guy not only has two different nail strip companies in Ulta and WalMart but Color Street had issues with not sticking to fingers. I do notice how people say it’s easy to stick on but the claims of it staying on for two weeks can be a bit tricky. When you look at these they are made of actual nail polish and nail polish does chip. I just watched a video of someone who used to work as a rep and talked about how their nails chipped within a week and a half and she tends to do a lot with her hands, which I admit I tend to have that happen too and my nail polish does chip right away or not. I even remembered when I wore Kiss nail wraps in tye dye and they chipped pretty fast too. I am willing to give strips another chance but I am thinking of going with Dashing Diva since they have gotten a good review. I even have a set of blue ones I’m eyeing on!

Blush: Another item I feel like other stores have better items happen to be blushes. I have loved Mac’s blush line the most since they are very blendable and have a lot of colors to choose from. Heck, I got one based on a recommendation for my skin tone all thanks to And That’s Jacob. I do love Warm Soul the most out of Mac’s entire collection of blushes. I also do enjoy some of the Wet N Wild ones too since they are really pigmented and pretty. I wished the one I tried from Avon fit more with my skin tone, like I said with the shadows the lady at the flea market who was selling the items fit me with a very deep one and that is mauve. I do enjoy a rose toned blush but I felt that this mauve was way too deep for my skin tone and would stand out too much on my cheeks. I wished I asked for something lighter like a pink or a lighter rose tone but stayed with this one. I tossed it though since I felt it didn’t fit me nor my skin. I did forget to mention that E. L. F.’s Primer blushes also are really good along with Cover Girl and Milani. I would say check them out if you are curious about better formulations.

Brushes: Next up are brushes.  It’s hard to find any bad reviews on the Mary Kay brushes at all but I do have to say that there are many brush brands that are comparable to them. I even remembered commenting in the chat about other brands during the panel but it was ignored. As a makeup user who is visually impaired, I have used brushes from many brands and retailers over the years. I even get brushes through Ipsy and have found pretty good brands. I even found great brushes through QAmazon for the most part and before they went out of business, Coastal Scents was also big with their brushes. Most of my collection include Coastal Scents, rest in peace, SL Miss Glam, F. A. R. A. H., Complex Culture, I did just get one from NYX, and a few others. To me with brushes, if my makeup is able to blend well, even in the eye shadow department, then it’s a pretty good brush. Another important thing to note is after washing will it fray?I haven’t seen any complaints about Mary Kay brushes fraying while cleaning them but the biggest culprit in this department happens to be Morphe. I am not a fan of Morphe brushes, I still have my vegan set and one brush I got in Allure Beauty Box but I do believe the quality is okay, not my favorite and I’ve seen people talk about how their brushes fray while cleaning, especially a couple in the Jacqueline Hill set years ago.As long as you clean your brushes you will have them stay in good condition for a long time and after having all of my brushes for many years even from Ipsy and Coastal Scents they have stayed together pretty well and I still do reach for them. Will I run out for the Mary Kay ones though as a brush collector? The only thing I am worried about is that after using the small lip gloss will they also be small? I know one brush company that tends to print where the brush goes, I forgot which one it was, their eye brushes I got through BoxyCharm as a set was pretty small but I do use them for concealer and powder or even for the crease sometimes but looking at the price of the Mary Kay set for $55 I think they may be as small as their makeup products when I can get a set from Amazon for $20+ or under for a decent size. Plus, I remembered someone bought a foundation and it was pretty small which would not fit a brush possibly in that small container either. I would even imagine a powder pan too. Again, I’d rather go to my usual favorite places for brushes. If you are a beginner, I would say try out Ipsy for single brushes, it would help build your collection and if you subscribe to Glam Bag Plus or GB X then you could get a set that way or wait for it to show up in the Ipsy Offers area. If you don’t want to go that route, talking to workers who work at different stores like Mac, Ulta, and NYX would also help.

Empty Pallets: Final item is those magnetic pallets where people love to put makeup pans in. What got me interested in the Mary Kay thing from the start was that the rep was selling new empty pallets but seeing them in person made me say no to them. They were small and the pans they were selling with them were charged separately. Also, one had a small mascara included. I felt the pan and it felt small too. Like with the shadow pans above, I’ve seen bigger pans like with Coastal Scents when they were still around and Colour Pop has really decently sized pans for their shadows where your brush can fit easily. These magnetic pallets are not worth the $18 to $20 because I’ve seen better and bigger ones for that price range. Perfect example is the Ulta Z Palette in large is $20 and I can fit a plot of pans into something that big. I had to do that by replacing my magnetic palette from Coastal Scents by getting this one myself and they fit perfectly. I even got a small Z Palette from Amazon years back for $5 and was able to fit nine pans from Colour Pop. Again, better to go with these and just get the Colour Pop pans, also any other brands that offer shadow and blush pans for these magnetic pallets for less than what Mary Kay would offer. I also have gotten makeup pans from Ipsy where I attached included magnets to the back to place into these and gave it a convenient look. And with the mascaras, I love the idea of travel size ones to sample new ones that I got through Ipsy but the one that was going to be included felt small if it was full size, just saying.

Well, that is it for this post. I may have ticked off some MLM reps on here but I feel that there are better products and cheaper ones when we are in person. I rather use the brands I’ve known and loved over the years and if you have a favorite product that you trust and love you should keep using it. Plus, the eye shadow pallets and pans we see from Ulta or Sephora or even Mac have better sizes alongside the lip products. I can’t say much towards Color Street but nail polish does chip and of course press on nails do chip too or fall off.

What is next? Since we are going through summer, it is time for the talk about sunscreen!!!

Subscription Satelite: Glam Bag Plus June 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe. I am back with my next Glam Bag!

Glam Bag Plus June 2021

I received my Glam Bag Plus this past week and it was a good one this month, especially with what I chose. This is the second tier in Ipsy where this costs $25 a month and you get full-size items in this one ranging from prestige to luxury. Let’s see what I got and chose!

SL Miss Glam Rainbow Luxe Brush Set: First up is an item from SL Miss Glam I love these brushes and have purchased sets from these guys in the Ipsy Offers area for a few years and even got big bundles that their brushes appeared in. This one is a newer set.  This is a $60 value brush set that contains five brushes. It is a glittery and useful brush set. It looks like they are eye brushes and one blush brush which I must try this set. Let’s see how this goes!

Kosas Lip Fuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm: Next up is an item that is a first for me and it’s from Kosas. This is a lip balm that contains hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E, Konjac Root, and Peppermint Oil. Okay, I love the idea to have hyaluronic acid but why the peppermint oil since that’s really drying? Not sure but I have to see how this goes since I did apply it to my lips just now. I have been getting into products with hyaluronic acid since it is used for hydration and my skin is very dry for years. I will have to see how this lip balm does.

Christof Robin Daily Hair Cream: Next is another first for me from Christof Robin. This is a product that helps with styling and frizz. When I read that I had to choose this since my hair does have frizz in some areas. I’ve been enjoying hair products to help with frizz and will be using this. Let’s see how it goes!

Thrive Cosmetics Eyelift 360 Degrees Eye Primer: Next up is a product from Thrive Cosmetics. I think I haven’t gotten an item from this brand in over a year. This is a product you can use on the lids and on the under eyes. It helps with fine lines and moisture around it. You can use it to put concealer on top and shadows on your lids. You just tap it on and let it set for 30 seconds. I must try this out and how well my shadows adhere to it.

We are Fluide Other Worldly Pallet: Final item is from another brand I never tried before and I never heard of until I saw this. It’s called We Are Fluide This brand creates colorful shadows for all ages, genders, and skin tones. This pallet is an eight-pan pallet with four different finishes. This has dark shades and metallic ones to create an out-of-this-world look. I must try this out and see how this goes since it is my first time trying this brand. I haven’t seen shadow pallets colorful in a while in a bag. Let’s see how it goes!

That is, it for this post! I can’t wait to try some of these items since I feel like this was better than the regular Glam Bag this month. I will see how next month’s bag will look like since GB X will be out in August. Next post will be interesting since I will be talking about products better than MLM products. Stay tuned!

\\Subscription Satelite: Ipsy June 2021

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new post!

Ipsy Glam Bag June 2021

I got my Glam Bag this past week and I do have to say it was kind of disappointing. I will tell you why with one of the products. This bag is $12 a month and you get deluxe sizes of items from drugstore through luxury brands. It can range from skin care to beauty tools. Let’s see what I got this month!

First Aid Beauty Fab Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask: That was a long name! I don’t get why brands do that! Anyways, first up is an item from a brand that is very sensitive skin friendly and happy about that and that is First Aid Beauty. I still enjoy the cleansing pads they make since I have containers left of those in my bathroom cabinet somewhere. This mask helps stressed out skin and has ingredients to help relieve the skin even while being irritated. I do have irritation sometimes but I do have some stresses with work and knowing that I am planning on heading back to school in the future I know my skin will be stressed. I will have to try this out It is just one of those masks where you put it on and it absorbs. I can’t wait to try this out!

Gow On 5th Rose Gau Sha: This is a tool that looks weird and that made this bag a little disappointing when I got it in my paws. I have been using a few beauty tools and this one look weird since it’s a rose petal shape. This is supposed to help with blood flow and circulation by draining the lymphatic system to lead to more radiant skin. I understand that but it would be nice if it were more of a bar type tool or a roller which I do use a jade roller to help make my skin care absorb better. I don’t think I will be using this but I don’t mind getting beauty tools in my bags since I did purchase a roller with some serum not too long ago. I can’t knock the idea down but this is just too weird!

Seraphine Botanicals Pink Guava + Primer Illuminating Primer: Next up is something from Seraphine. I think I lost this item in my room but I am getting it replaced now. This is an oil free primer that contains demasque rose, pink guava and ruamesque tea extract to help with plumping the skin and keeping long wearing makeup on. I do wear more of a dewy finish foundation but this could help since I also don’t have oily skin. When I saw the price at $42 for the full size, I might buy it if I do have some money saved. You never know if this does break me out then I won’t buy it. I am glad to try it out as a sample though! I will have to wait for the replacement though!

Shades By Shan Eye Shadow Duo in Tease and Self Made: Next up is a small eye shadow duo from a brand called Shades by Shan. This is a duo that contains a copper shade and a red brown shade that can be used all over the eye and can be used from day to night looks. This did catch my eye and that is why I chose it. I will see how pigmented these shadows are when it comes to application and how well primers hold onto it.

Skylar Body Lotion in Capri: Final item is a body lotion! This body lotion without a greasy formula due to it containing hyaluronic acid, coconut oil, rose hemp oil, and shea butter. I did use it on my hand! I will still use it on my hands!

This bag was okay! I felt like when I picked the shadow duo, they threw in whatever with the last item which is the Gua Sha. The other items are basically what I would use especially the primer since I am trying new moisturizing primers. I hope my Glam Bag won’t be like how BoxyCharm handled my boxes every month since I do enjoy this subscription. I can’t wait for my GB Plus because there is one item or two, I am looking forward to! Next up it may be that or a newer post since I have been enjoying more new products. Until next time, stay beautiful!

Convention Comet: RangerStop & Pop 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia

Hello all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new convention post! Yes, I know it’s been a long time and this is huge for us too! Let’s get into it!

RangerStop &Pop

Location: Weston Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia

Dates: August 27-29, 2021

Yes! We have a new convention we’re doing press for a new convention! Well, not so new but we’re heading for an out of state convention! Since 2015, we wanted to do press for a convention outside of Florida since our first was in Tampa, which of course was MetroCon back in 2013 and 2014. Don’t worry, we still appreciate our work with the ones we’ve worked at in Orlando which one includes RangerStop and seeing the posters around announcing some of the guests RJ and I talked about it and got press for this year’s convention.

What About Covid? I know this question would come up since 2020 had been taken away and that caused a lot of events to cancel or move their dates to this year. RangerStop & Pop was one of these conventions. They were moved to March at first except the pandemic expanded and now it’s in August of this year. Unfortunately, we also must announce that we won’t be doing press for Omni Fandom Expo due to the new RangerStop Atlanta dates. I know it has been a big part of our convention press but there is always next year. If you guys are worried about the virus, please! PLEASE get vaccinated! This pandemic is slowing down because of the vaccinations and we’re trying to hit herd immunity here in the states. And if still worried, bring extra hand sanitizer, wear your mask, and of course wash your hands and follow any procedures conventions may have while attending. I know me and RJ will be doing that while we’re in Atlanta. Now onto the post!

Location: This convention will be located at the Weston Buckhead Due to how popular this convention is, rooms do sell out fast and we did reserve early enough. They also have an overflow block now which you can check their website for and again, this block will sell out so if you’re planning a convention trip then reserve now for this one.

The Weston does feature a lot of rooms with refrigerators, comfortable bedding, and, they do have cleaning procedures in place to make sure everything is sanitized. Also, they do give guests free sanitizer. They are surrounded by many attractions like Lego Land Discovery, the botanical gardens, and a few other places. I know we will be looking around since this is our first time in Atlanta. Heck, even try out a place that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!

Guests: Like any convention, the guest list did catch our eye. This convention not only features guests from many seasons of Power Rangers but also features guests from other parts of pop culture. I mean they even had Kel Mitchell as a guest one year. Also, what got me happy is of course this year marks the twentieth anniversary of Power Rangers Time Force! Which I did buy a copy of! Now let’s see who a guest is at this one:

  • Chris Sabat: My Hero Academia, Dragonball Z, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, and more!
  • Johnny Yong Bosch: Mighty Morphen Power Rangers, Wolf’s Rain, Devil May Cry 4 & 5
  • Paul Shrier: Mighty Morphen Power Rangers, In Space, Lost Galaxy
  • Jason Narvy: Mighty Morphen, In Space
  • Katherine Sutherland: Mighty Morphen, Zeo, Turbo
  • Nikia Burrise: Mighty Morphen
  • Karen Ashley: Zeo, Turbo
  • Elizabeth Maxwell: Attack on Titan, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Jason Faunt: Time Force, Resident Evil 6 (mo-cap)
  • Deborah Estelle Philips: Time Force
  • Austin St. John: Mighty Morphen

That’s going to be all the guests I will mention here for now! There will be more to come as the event gets closer! Trust me, I’m super excited about this year’s event! And of course, getting to film the panels for the Nerdy Shique Universe YouTube since we have a new video camera in time for this year’s event. I am looking into a new photo camera as well. Make sure you follow us on the Nerdy Shique Universe Twitter and follow our podcast, Nerdy Shique Transmissions, for more news to come since I do spread out any info whether it’s through Twitter or in the podcast universe!

Tickets: There are passes left by the looks of things on the official site. When you get to the main page, make sure you choose Atlanta since there is no word on Orlando now. Weekend passes are $65 and you can get different VIP packages, which are silver which cost $175, Gold, $250, and Platinum, $300. There are passes for kids for ages 4 through 12 and those are $20.

What Are We Looking Forward to? The travelling. Like I said before, 2020 was pretty much taken from everyone and I was looking forward to going to Omni last year except that didn’t take place at all. Plus, we rarely get to travel away from Orlando or shall I say Florida in general since we do work and I only travelled with my family on different things and that was different. Now doing it with RJ is a new experience with how long we’ve been with each other and we have gone to Tampa for MetroCon so far. I’m also looking forward to seeing what events they bring to this one, hoping they have Rangers After Dark which some ridiculous stuff can happen at this panel. Not only that, seeing about the pop culture aspects since we did have Samantha Newark and Wally Wingert at Orlando’s 2019 convention. And of course, getting new shirts designed since we did upgrade our link to a full-on website since I need to do that next month due to the time the shirts arrive. And of course, passing out our new business cards since they were found when we unpacked from our move last November. All in all, I’m looking forward to getting back out there and doing what we’re known best and that is bringing convention content.

So, that is it for this post! You can find out the rest of the information relating to RangerStop & Pop at the link below! I’m waiting on my Glam Bag now so hang tight!
