Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag Plus June 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe. I am back with another subscription!

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus June 2020!

Finally my GB Plus arrived! I am not sure why it always gets delayed like this but glad I got this in time for Ipsy Choice! This bag is the second tier where you pay $25 a month and you get more full size items from more prestige and luxury brands also even more independent brands in skin care, lifestyle, and makeup. Plus you still get a bag in this which is slightly bigger or smaller than the Glam Bag. Anyways, I did get some pretty sweet items this month since it does balance with what I got in my Glam Bag. Let’s see what I got!

Huda Beauty Basic B Sponge
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer
Araceli Beauty Ojos Perfectos Eyeliner

Huda Beauty Basic B Sponge: First up is an item from Huda Beauty and it’s something I didn’t know they had and that is a blending sponge! When I got it I thought it was from Juno & Co. since the sponge looks similar but the butt is rounder than flat like the Juno sponge. This sponge lets you have streak free application where the flat side can be used to tap foundation and CC Cream all over while the smaller side is used for concealer. This sponge retails for $17.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer: Next up is a product from Dr. Brandt and this time it’s the Pores No More Luminizer Primer. I remembered trying a mask from these guys and glad to try another item from these guys. This primer helps skin defuse pores and help them become minimized with tea tree oil and lentil seed extract to create a perfect canvas. Can’t wait to see how this works since I’m still using my E. L. F. Pore Putty and now using the sample of the First Aid Beauty primer I got in my Glam Bag. This item retails for $38.
Araceli Beauty Ojos Perfectos Eyeliner in Coffee: Finally an eyeliner that is not the color black! I love black eyeliners but getting them all the time was getting boring and glad to get this as a change. This is a pen liner that is supposed to be long lasting and can create major wings with. I hope to get more colored liners like this because that was a breath of fresh air. This retails for $16.
Purlisse Blue Lotus 4~in~1 Cleansing Milk: Next up is another item from Purlisse and that is their 4~in~1 Cleansing Milk. I think I remembered trying a similar one from these guys back in January 2015 and man that was really gentle! This is a sulfate and soap free multi-tasking cleanser that cleanses, tones skin, removes make up, and soothes the skin all at once. This uses soy milk, soy protein, and white tea in this formula to help people with dry and sensitive skin. I really want to use this! Screw what I’ve been doing to clean my makeup right now because this sounds really good right now. (Sponge Bob Voice) Five Minutes Later! I am back! Okay, I tried this and I felt I had to still use the cleansing water to help get any remnants off since I felt some of the mascara primer on my lashes and I did feel clean afterward. I have to keep using this to see how it goes since I still felt slightly dry but skin care does take time to work not just in one day. This product retails for $36.
Laura Gellar Urban Garden Pallet in Central Park: Final item is my choice item for June. The only thing I tried from this brand was their Whipped Gelato highlighters and this is a first to try more of their items. This product is inspired by the hidden gardens of New York and it features a blush, a bronze highlighter and four neutral shadows, three mattes and one shimmer. This pallet has their items made with Vitamin E and grape seed oil to nourish the skin. I can’t wait to use this pallet since it is a good all-in-one pallet and would be nice to travel with. This retails for $14.

Add-On: Hanalei Sheet Mask Duo: Now onto the add-ons or shall I say the only add-on I purchased this month. I saw these among the add-ons and decided why not try more items from Hanalei and it’s their Face Sheet Mask Duo. This set has masks that are made with Hawaiian Noni Fruit Extract that helps skin become its full and plump self and also uses pineapple extracts. It even helps with dark spots you may have. I tried one and man it felt so good! My skin did feel really hydrated afterwards since the serum was also cooling after spreading it. I do have one more and will save it since I have enjoyed one mask so far. I wished they put their value though.

Well that is it for this post guys! I am really happy for this month’s box! Yes, it sucked that it took a bit to get to me but what can you do since it is still the quarantine and some areas are not all the way opened yet and some mail services are still feeling it. I have to keep using the Cleansing Milk since I did have to use my cleansing water to get any residue off my lashes or my face and so on. I can’t wait to use the shadow pallet and the primer since those got me really excited about the box. I know I will be loving the sponge once I start using it. I did make my choice for July’s box and can’t wait to see what else they choose for me since there were really good items but the one I got is something I was meaning to try so stay tuned for July! Next will be my May & June Box Round Up since I have tried most of the items and will let you know what I think! Until next time!

Note: Can’t really find a link for the Laura Gellar pallet! I think it was discontinued on Laura Gellar’s site.

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

Ipsy Glam Bag June 2020

It’s time for Ipsy since it arrived today to my mailbox. It was supposed to be here Saturday but it got delayed. What else is new? Anyways, this month’s bag is interesting but it does balance out with my GB Plus which I am waiting for that to come in since I got really good products in that one but let’s see what I got here first. I did forget to mention in my Boxy post the price of that box but if you go back to my past posts on that you would find the price of the base box that way. This bag is $12 a month and you get sample to deluxe size and sometimes full size items from brands you may have not heard and want to try or may have heard and want to try new products by them. It’s a good way of experimenting especially with their bundles in Ipsy Offers.

Dewy Tree the Clean Lab AC Dew Foam: First up is from a brand I never heard of and that is the Dewy Tree. It’s a K Beauty brand that uses the innate healing to enhance the effects of the natural ingredients in their products which is interesting since the body does heal itself and good that we can use that with these products. Let’s see what this product claims to be. This item has a PH balance of 6.6 which is non-irritating and it will hydrate the skin and clean since it’s a cleanser that is very gentle on the skin for sensitive skin types to use. The addition of Japanese Umbrella Pine Extract and the its anti-microbial properties help get rid of any bacteria that may cause acne and the lather will happen on contact with skin without any harsh rubbing. I have to try this out since this is an interesting product to me. I never heard of Japanese Umbrella Pine before either. Apparently the Umbrella Pine is an expensive and rare conifer tree that grows slowly over time and apparently it’s small too. Also, it’s a sacred tree it is associated with Buddhism in Kyoto. My question is how did this brand get the extract though? Sounds interesting though but can’t wait to see how this works on my sensitive skin and I do feel my pores around my nose kind of clogged since it’s taking me a bit of time to get back into my skin care routine after being injured and now have my scar under my eye. Not kidding, you may see it in future videos and pictures of me.
Sur.Medic Azulene Soothing Cream: Another new brand I never heard of before is known as Sur.Medic. This brand is more of a First Aid type brand that uses solutions that are effective, easy, and accessible. This product has Sica that helps with itchiness and irritation in the skin. Also Azulene is used to help with the protective barrier of the skin to keep hydration in and bad things out. I will definitely try this out since I am getting back into my skin care routine again and it felt good starting it up again due to how bad it was clogging up near my nose. So, will have to see how this goes!
First Aid Beauty Hello Fab Pores Be Gone Matte Primer: Why does this brand have to have a mouthful with their products? Oh well! A new item from First Aid Beauty and it’s a face primer. This is a multi-tasking and oil free primer that helps with keeping makeup on even during sweat. This helps face products that are layered on the skin to be long-lasting and it also helps with skin concerns by smoothing them out. I don’t have oily skin but I am willing to try this out since First Aid Beauty is known for being sensitive skin friendly. I have been using the Facial Radiance Pads by them and it has been helping. I will have to try this out during my Facebook live stream then. Let’s see what happens!
Eddie Funkhouser Dome Blending Brush: I heard of this brand but never got any of the items in my bag until now and that is a domed blending brush. This brand was created by Eddie Funkhouser who is a veteran makeup artist, spokesperson, and an expert product developer which I can see why he created his brand. This is a brush that contains synthetic bristles that can be used with powder and cream products. When I got this I saw that it’s perfect for the creases in my eyes due to how small it is and it’s very lightweight too. I will definitely be enjoying this brush!
Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Lip Crayon in Scarlet O Hara: Final item is my Choice Item for this month and it’s from Sugar Cosmetics! This was offered with other colors but I chose this one. This is a full coverage and highly pigmented lip crayon that doesn’t crease nor dehydrate the lips and stays fresh from morning coffee to evening. I have enjoyed products from this brand since I did get the Purple Rain eyeliner pencil when I got back to Ipsy and loved it and used it all up so now glad to try a lip product by this brand and can’t wait to wear it!

That is it for this bag! I found this bag pretty well balanced especially with what I will be getting in GB Plus. It is close to summer and a lot of people do tend to wear more skin care products since the harsh rays of the sun tends to cause some damage and we need to protect it. Especially here on the coast where we do have a lot of beach lovers and the sun can be really harsh! I’m glad to try two new skin care brands alongside a new item from First Aid Beauty and Sugar Cosmetics and finally getting to check out Eddie Funkhouser as well. Can’t wait to see what July brings for the bag since it is Independence Day and it gets ten times hotter here in Florida during July than June to tell you the truth. Stay tuned for my GB Plus because it’s supposed to be on its way but it hasn’t budged much and I did sign up for tracking updates to be emailed to me because I did order a Purlisse duo last month but never arrived and don’t know what had happened which I did contact DHL about it and nothing has come up yet which I will update you guys about that. Until next time!

Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm June 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! It’s time for my first box subscription of the month!

BoxyCharm June 2020

Disclaimer: This post contains reviews and thoughts on the products of the writer. Please respect her thoughts on each item.

Well guys BoxyCharm arrived this morning. I bet you’re wondering how? Well, yesterday it was supposed to be delivered but around one in the afternoon there was a delivery exception in Sanford and they had to inspect my box at the FedEx facility it was at. Oh yeah, I even felt where it was slashed open by them which is on the right side of the box and saw one of my items opened too! What the heck? I know which one it was too and will get to that in a bit! This box was okay and I thought my card was last month’s card but I accidentally had it in the scanner, I sent Boxy an email before checking and had a major faux pas in my corner, whoops! At least I have the right card with the right items. Let’s see what I got!

Kiley Skin Foaming Face Wash: First up is from Kiley Jenner’s skin care line and it’s her Foaming Face Wash. This product is a luxurious face wash that is gentle for the skin and contains kiwi seed and Vitamin C to help with moisture and helps clean out dirt and makeup. I remembered there was a bit of controversy about this line that she had released where she made advertisements showing her using the items but not really using them. I’m sorry but that’s false advertising and even other brands and their commercial people did the same thing even the kid that played Eleven on Stranger Things apologized for doing the same thing with her products which I was happy she did that. To me as someone who has tried so many products and if I were to advertise for Kiley Skin I would do a video of me using this to clean my makeup at night since that is when I do that even I use these face washes in the shower to keep my face clean to give my skin care time to get in when I finish brushing my teeth. Anyways now to the formulation. I am worried about my sensitive skin reacting because I remembered Shane Dawson and Jeffree Starr did a video trying Kiley Skin products and Shane got reactions from it due to his sensitive skin and I concluded it’s not sensitive skin friendly but if this says it’s gentle then I would give it a chance. I may try this in between my Tony Moley tubes since I did purchase another tube of their Peach Juice Foaming Face Wash and will come back to let you know in a future review since my face washes last me a long time. This item retails for $24.
Purlisse Perfect Glow BB Cream SPF 30: First Purlisse product to get in this box and that is their BB Cream with SPF 30 and I got the shade Medium Tan. I am happy to get this since I am already a fan of Purlisse and that it’s meant for all skin types even my own but the shade is Medium Tan and afraid it’s too dark. Let’s see what the card says about this! This is a multi-tasking product that glides on like a tinted moisturizer and has the same age-defying benefits of sunscreen. I remembered in an interview that Jennifer Yen uses this item due to how she can’t wear foundation since the reason for starting this brand was due to the stage makeup back in the late 90s wrecked her skin and broke her out like crazy. I already put makeup on and not going to see how the shade matches but if BoxyCharm is going to look at profiles and surveys they need to really match people with their shade since they did start putting foundations in their box. I remembered matching with Cashmere from Becca and wondering why not this? I will see if there is a similar shade to mine if I want to purchase this in the future so will see what happens. This item retails for $35.
Lily Lashes Triple X Mascara: Next is my choice item and that’s from Lily Lashes! I heard so many things about this brand for its lashes but you know me I don’t wear lashes! Keep those things away from me! I did see they gave out the mascara and now wearing it. This is a lengthening, voluminizing, and bold mascara that has a tapered dual fiber brush that coats lashes with an ultra black formula. I have been using mascara primers due to how badly mine flaked into my eyes last year even caused me to be allergic to the E. L. F. Lash and Brow Gel Duo I used to love and when I used the lash primer my mascara stays put and even makes my lashes look better. This mascara did curl my lashes very well without a curler and very volumizing. This product retails for $24.
Cab Cosmetics Lip Duo: Next up was something I hoped to get and that is from CAB Cosmetics. I never heard of this brand until this was sneak peeked on YouTube. This is a lip liner and gloss duo that can be either worn alone or together which makes me happy on that part since I do use lip liner more with liquid lipstick to help them stay put more on the lips. This duo retails for $40.
Smashbox Photo Finish Setting Spray: Final item is from Smashbox! I was hoping to get this also because I am collecting items for a video on Smashbox for my Beauty Forgotten series and glad to get this here so I don’t have to purchase it! This helps make makeup stay put for 16 hours and is supposed to a comfortable wear without being sticky and also its high performance with the spray. I will definitely put this to the test when I get to that video and glad that I got this in my box because I don’t have to pay the retail price of $32.

So, this box was okay. I kind of felt like my box was thrown together with random stuff besides my choice as in the ere like, “Let’s throw this in! And this item! And this thing!” I don’t feel that this is a reason to cancel though because there are really good items I do get and glad to try new brands I haven’t gotten to try yet like Hank & Henry, now CAB, and have enjoyed other items from existing brands I have tried that I can’t always splurge on. I have seen people cancelling due to the items they have gotten and not being able to use. I know that feeling since I’ve gotten lashes twice and had to email them about it due to not marking them. Here is the thing, Ipsy, since I am also subscribed to them, always or gets my profile sometimes correct with what I pick and then get the other four items. BoxyCharm, on the other hand, feels like they hardly look at the quiz in the first place like what had happen with the Cover FX pallet a year ago where some people who fit in the certain skin tone categories got the wrong one. I’m hoping that the Medium Tan BB Cream is not too dark, also that the face wash doesn’t break me out. July’s choices were nothing but serums so hoping the next box will be better since we are technically in summer and yes having a nice BB Cream does help but they need to match skin tones right. I am still happy about the other three items though.

I did forget to mention! The item that FedEx inspected was the Smashbox Setting Spray because when I opened my box when I brought it inside I saw the box was open and knowing with sprays they do inspect those and wishing they weren’t jerks about it and open my box like they did. It’s like they think it may cause an issue, I understand that we have to be wary about what’s going around and being sent but seriously not cool!

That is it for this post. I was also supposed to get my Glam Bag but it ran into delays again! Hoping I do get it tomorrow or Tuesday! Until next time!

The Beauty Quadrant: Brands I Won’t Buy From!

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe and welcome back! I know the world is very crazy right now but felt like doing another beauty related post!

Brands I Am Not Buying From!

Disclaimer: This post is not to bash on the brands being mentioned. This is a way of showing the lead writer’s opinion on them and if you like they go ahead so please respect the writer’s opinion while you’re at it!

I know I should have done this years ago when I first started in makeup but I felt like doing this since you know I am in a low buy I am trying to stick to but with the pandemic it’s really hard but I am doing better. The reason why this late is that there are brands that are out of my price range or if I have tried them before with an item that was a sample and don’t like it or just me that I do want to talk about it and shows how I do speak with my cards when it comes to buying. Let’s see what I got!

Sunday Riley: First up is Sunday Riley! I tried this brand all thanks to GB Plus with their Vitamin C moisturizer in one of my boxes last year and I thought it was okay even though it costs $65 and you know me with skin care you don’t have spent butt loads of money to moisturize the face or find a way of reducing wrinkles and so on. Yes, I buy Murad but I get that on discount since it is also good for my sensitive skin but Sunday Riley I am not sure about. I felt weird when I used the Vitamin C moisturizer as in it felt weird after using it and knowing I had to use it very day before it goes bad. Plus the Good Genes Lactic Acid doesn’t appeal to me at all and of course they lied about their products as in Sunday Riley workers lied on Sephora in the reviews section so that is another reason why I won’t be buying from the brand because skin care does not work overnight it takes time to work or not work and also not all products work on everyone either. That is why I read the claims before buying or choosing for my boxes.
Marc Jacobs: I remembered trying a lipstick from this brand in a birthday gift from Sephora and it was tiny and the lipstick reminded me of a Mac lipstick. I feel that sometimes if I try a very luxury brand when it comes to some makeup items I get reminded of the brands I love if it’s similar like how I said that their lipstick mini reminded me of Mac in a way and I think I remembered the lipsticks being in the $45 to $50 range like Tom Ford, which is another brand I won’t buy, and to me that is over price for something you would wear on every day.
Natasha Denona: I tried one of the eye shadows all thanks to Allure’s Beauty Box and it was just okay. I wished I put them in my answer to the pallet tag I did with the question about products that aren’t worth the hype but to be fair I only tried one shadow from this brand. I have to say about my experience with the shadow is that it was powdery and did not last throughout the day. I did not see the smudge on my makeup wipe at all from it coming from my eyes. Even though people hype this brand up but not my favorite and to me too pricey because it is around $100+. Even though there are smaller pallets but they are more than Urban Decay prices and I feel that it’s too much for me despite buying the Game of Thrones pallet last year. Still not my favorite.
KVD Vegan Beauty: I know she stepped down from her brand but Kogendo will be keeping up with the dry formula of her liquid lipsticks. I’m sorry guys but liquid lipstick should not be uncomfortable to wear on the lips and for that price as well. I felt like this brand also lost touch with the fans after what KVD said even with the most recent statements of how she blamed influencers for her downfall when she said some unfavorable things the past two years which does cause people to turn away in the first place. Again a lipstick formula should not be uncomfortable to wear on the lips, besides I have worn liquid lipsticks that felt better on my lips after tossing Echo and Wolf.

Well guys that is it for now for this post. I can’t think of any other brands but once I do I may write another post on them. What is next, new book review on the horizon! Stay tuned!

The Book Quadrant: To Sleep In A Sea of Stars by. Christopher Paolini

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

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini

Disclaimer: This partial ARC was given to the lead writer of this blog to review. Please respect her thoughts and opinions that are in this review. Thank you!

Kira Navarez has always hoped to explore new worlds but one world has given her a nightmare she thought she would live. While being on a planet in a system ripe for colonization by humans she ends up falling onto a relic that causes her to change into something that no one has seen before that may lead to the annihilation of the human race and she is the only one to keep it from happening.

Thoughts: When I saw that this was written by Christopher Paolini I was surprised. I have read the first three books in the Inheritance series and still on the fourth one on one of my Victor Reader Streams and when I read this I was amazed how much his writing has changed. I know he was a teenager when he wrote Eragon and I have a feeling he is in his twenties or early thirties by now writing this book and I was happy to read a partial ARC of it. This book kind or reminded me of Event Horizon with a mix of Alien or Prometheus depending on how you see it when this book comes out around September. I did like how he started the book with the voyage with Kira and her team since this was important to start painting the picture and how Kira started to change. As in the mission that changed her to how she loses herself and the teammates closest to her, then to her being alone in the universe. I did find it interesting how the parasite is more of a suit rather than just a virus like how Sam Neil was infected in Event Horizon since his consciousness was being controlled and manipulated when Kira is still conscious and being able to control herself. At first, when she first got infected with her first encounter, I had a feeling that something was going to happen to her and that it could kill her with how Paolini made it sound. I may have to buy the book to read the rest of this because when it dropped off I was hoping her travels on the Valkyrie to get to 61 Sydney, which is in the Wayland System, and how she would deal with things and the remaining crew from the military from the quarantine ship. I also hope this turns into a short series too because I can see this may require a sequel if Paolini hasn’t started on one yet.

Rating: 5 Star Paw Prints Out of 5! For a partial ARC this was a good one! I liked how the story was set up with the mission starting off good and then it went to crap once Kira fell into the relic where a crashed drone was located. I feel that this may be a series because we are going to be facing an alien race that may threaten the human race or maybe Kira is just going to be the next Eragon by being the hero and having to use the military at her side to take on what may be coming after her for the suit. It looks like I will be buying this book, heck I would even get it on Audible to see who gets to read this book since I’ve been enjoying that service on my new Kindle that I purchased this month. Let’s see how this one goes.

That is it for this book review! I know it’s short since it was a partial book after all and hoping I will get the book once it’s released in September since one of the other Dresden Files books is supposed to drop at the same time which I am happy for since it’s been five years since Skin Game! Anyways, what’s next? June is right around the corner so stay tuned for more posts!

The Beauty Quadrant: MakeUp Stores Stopping Testers!

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I’m back with a new topic that came to me.

MakeUp Stores Stopping Testers!

That is today’s topic because I saw on my Newsfeed on Facebook that someone posted about how Sephora and Ulta are stopping store testers alongside the link to the article. I did take a read and this is what I think!

Disclaimer: This post is based on thoughts and opinions of the writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts on the topic at hand. Thank you!

All thanks to what has been going on in the world with Covid19 and how the stores are starting to slowly open up and letting customers back into their locations even if it’s not more than ten or so at a time but one thing is that someone wants to do is try out a new foundation they have been eyeing on online and want to try it in store. Once they get in and head over to the counter or the shelves where it may be there are no testers. Why is that? Well, stores are putting customers’ safety first especially with the pandemic we have gone through for the past few months and thinking of removing the testers due to how they are a petry dish for bacteria to form. This includes foundations, concealers, mascaras, and even lip products since those carry the most infectious diseases on display.

If you remembered my story with what had happened to me at NYX, if you’re new here I will tell it again. During 2017 and still living with my parents, I went to one of the NYX locations in town and decided to try out the Alabama lipstick since I heard good things about it and it was a dupe for the Sephora liquid lipstick that was in the same color. The associate who was helping me hands the tube and I look at it in my peripheral and she asks, “Do you want to swatch it on your lips or hand?” I just froze because I have heard a horror story about testers causing infections and then swatched on my hand and it fit my skin. Got a fresh tube and a few more items and did my transaction and left. I was kind of annoyed because the associate could have harmed me with the lipstick if I did swatch it on my lips. Heck, even Sephora got sued that same year for a woman getting Herpes from trying out a lipstick in store. And of course with today’s pandemic the lips, the eyes, and nose are the biggest parts of the face where a disease can go and that is why we got the messages to wash our hands and use hand sanitizer all this time and seeing why that testers may be removed.

Yes, these things are part of the experience and the product should be tried out before buying but do you really want to risk it? Heck, even people have been risking it by using the mascara wand directly on their eye and even lip glosses on their lips but now that won’t be the case. That would go for perfumes too because your fingers are touching the bottle and you have to clean that bottle off after the person touched it. Besides the testers this would also cause the makeup artists in store be more careful with products when they are doing someone’s makeup for events and may go the same way with freelance artists too since products do have to be cleaned and sanitized plus you do have the disposable wands to use for mascara tubes.

Going back to testers and knowing that they are important for the experience I think brands should jump in and change the idea of testing and I am using this as a good example. To me brands should make sample cards with foundations ranging from light to dark, going the same with their concealers, blushes, and even lip products and send them to stores and explain to the customer to use this to match themselves and purchase the product online or come back with the match. It worked with Pretty Vulgar and Becca Cosmetics when they have sent BoxyCharm cards with samples of their concealer and foundation for Charmers to try out and answer surveys with their match to get that product in a future box. I got one of the Becca cards since I prefer trying new foundations and was able to match myself with Cashmere in the shades and got a bottle of this foundation. It worked out because it saved me time from trying to have a store associate going through samples and did it safely from home and having this cards for stores can do the same thing but who knows if it will be implemented or people are going to complain about the lack of testers.

Which brings up another point, with the experience part of it there are going to be people that may break into the products on display since that has been a big issue even before the pandemic happened. I have seen YouTube videos of former Sephora employees talking about customers breaking into gift sets to try out that ever-so-famous charcoal peel-off mask and other times customers go into the foundation drawers which they’re not supposed to and it also happened at MAC a couple of times too. Hearing these stories make me wonder if people don’t want to look at the display would they get into the product more? That can be even more risky because the item does get compromised and can’t be sold once it’s broken into. I remembered seeing this happen once when there used to be a Kmart near my parents’ place and a girl went up to one of the displays and opened the product and took it out of there and who knows what had happened to it. Plus some of my YouTube personalities have experienced while shopping for a foundation or a mascara or lip item that some of them were opened and swatched and like earlier that can have something going into it and build up over time if left on the display until an associate sees it. This does lead to tossing the product afterward because since it is broken into that would lose money and of course throw it out because the store doesn’t want to cause an uproar if someone gets sick. Which also brings to another point.

How stores throw away items when they are returned! I know this is about samples and testers but bringing this up is also important because some people have seen a video of an Ulta employee poking out eye shadows with a sharp instrument before throwing them away and this was a pallet that was returned by the way. Reason being is that when an item is returned after being swatched or partially used it has to be destroyed and tossed out. If they were placed on the rack again people will be more at risk because they don’t know what the previous customer may have had Covid 19 or not and in order to destroy the returned product keeps germs away and also discourages anyone from dumpster diving for it too. Remember how some people have done that at Ulta locations in the past? Best to just buy a new item anyways and just save yourself from being infected.

Conclusion: So, what will happen with ending these testers? It’s hard to say because it can be a safety thing since we don’t know who has passed by and what they may have and if they had Corona in the first place. I think stores want to keep their customers as safe as possible and don’t want to go through issues if it were to happen. What I’m worried about is that there is going to be someone who may break into a product though and leave it after testing it since that can happen. I would prefer if the brands would do the sampling cards because it can be done safely and once the card is used and the shade is matched it’s thrown away in the person’s home versus being at risk in the store and the store will still get it sale online or in person. And also towards mascaras, I didn’t get to mention, good idea is to watch reviews on it before buying because YouTube is a good source for reviews and of course you have customers posting them almost every day and month to express their experience. People have gotten sties and I don’t want that to happen either. So, in the end it will be interesting to see how this change will happen and how effective it would be. Yes some people will be annoyed if they can’t get a foundation or concealer tested but keeping that safety is important.

Well, that is it for this post! I know it was a bit rambly but at the same time trying to talk about the topic at hand and seeing what protocols are being in place as things are starting to open up again and trying to get back to a somewhat normal. Well guys, stay beautiful!

The Tag Quadrant: All About My Eye Shadow Pallets!

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

Eye Shadow Pallet Tag!

I’ve been seeing this tag around and have seen a few and wanted to do this one and that is the Eye Shadow Pallet Tag. I have a lot of shadow pallets and haven’t been buying any lately, last one I got was the Tuscany Intense Pallet and waiting for Cremated to be re-stocked so let’s see what I have to say! Also…

Disclaimer: This tag is based on thoughts on shadow pallets that the writer of this blog owns. Please don’t judge her tastes and purchase decisions that will be mentioned! Thank you!

Show Your Newest Pallet: My newest pallet is the Ease to Wear Pallet from Studio Makeup which came in my BoxyCharm this month. This is a neutral pallet that anyone can wear and it smells like Tarte shadows not going to lie. I haven’t been using it because I haven’t been wearing that much makeup during the quarantine and well this past Tuesday I got hurt all thanks to a dumpster door at our dumpster in my complex hitting me in the face and cutting my cheek open so I have to wait until the sutures fall off before I use my skin care or makeup. Glad I did get this even though there was another shadow pallet that could have been placed in my box but neutral is my way to go for everyday if I wanted and also for work looks. I will have to use this at some point.
Show Your Oldest Pallet: I would have to say my oldest pallet would be the Urban Decay Smoked Pallet that is the zipped up pallet that also came with the 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion and I remembered getting this. I was still a student at the time at my workplace and when Ulta said that this is on sale for half-off I decided to get it since I have enjoyed the Naked Basics pallet since I already used up my old Naked Basics before I opened my newer one when it was on the discontinued list. I remembered one time I wore the Smoked and took a picture for What’s up in Makeup and people made fun of my look and I never knew people could be mean if you use something that can be a bit vintage in your collection and I have loved this pallet since I do love doing smoky eyes for years. I still have it but haven’t touched it after that photo. I have a feeling it was used in the makeup shaming group because this happened to me when I started working where I got a message on Messenger from the WUM Moderators and they told me what had happened and I was upset and did a video about it when I got home. Not sure if it was that picture but it is a feeling.
Show you’re Most Expensive Pallet: I give it to both the Jeffree Starr Blue Blood Pallet and the Urban Decay Game of Thrones Pallet! If I got Cremated that would be in this too but nope! Anyways, these two pallets were purchased last year. When I saw Bunny talking about the Blue Blood pallet I had to have it because she described the shades so well and I love blue so much! I was lucky to get the bundle with the liquid lipsticks and have enjoyed what I created so far. I still have shadows in there to try in that thing which I haven’t pulled out as of late but I may combine it with some looks with Cremated. While Game of Thrones, I am a fan of the books to tell you the truth, still reading A Feast for Crows which will take me forever to read due to how long these books are! Anyways, this was a collector’s item and the shades are beautiful but I heard some people were having issues with blending but I think I was able to have an easy time with it since I was using the House Starke quad from this and Urban Decay is really pigmented with their shadows and have no issues. Plus this had FOMO written all over it even though I was able to purchase it on the Urban Decay website and had to wait for the Mother of Dragons Highlighter Pallet to come to Ulta. I admit I haven’t touched it in a while since it is kind of heavy and still want to try more of the other quads and mix and match.
Show Your Most Affordable Shadow Pallets: I do have two of the E. L. F. Bite Size pallets but I haven’t used them yet like most people but I would give this to the Colour Pop Nude Mood Shadow Pallet! I have heard how awesome the monochromatic pallets that Color Pop has been releasing like crazy but the one that got me was Nude Mood due to the colors being pretty. I did use it once and they were really pigmented and easy to blend. If you haven’t tried the powder formula you must because it is a really good formula and you can get single shadows for $5 and customize your own pallet.
Show Your Every Day Pallet: This one’s hard but I would have to say the pallet I created with shadows from Coastal Scents! It is a Z Pallet with shadow pans I purchased through the Hot Pot sales that Coastal Scents tend to do off and on and I love these things because I can just customize to my heart’s content and be able to have an everyday look with whatever I wear. Plus I have a blush in there too that is every day wear and they are easy to blend. A little bit of warning make sure you don’t stick your finger and get it on your skin, I had that happen to me a couple of times and my supervisor had to help me clean that up. Anyways, they are really good and yes the price did go up to $3 but worth it even with the half off sale. I did have to get replacements for my blue shadow column since I sometimes wear blue outfits and want to match and glad to get new shades for that column.
Show Your Most Colorful Pallet: I give this to the Vintage Dawn pallet from Ace Bouteau! Reason being is that it is my most colorful free standing pallet and also my Ulta makeup sets I got last Christmas time. First to mention the Vintage Dawn pallet since I got it in BoxyCharm. This pallet features shadows that can be seen at dawn and it feels that they chose really interesting shades to play with such as yellow, yellow orange, a few reds, even two blues in this pallet and it’s fun to play around to give an interesting take on the color wheel because you can go all colorful or all neutral with the browns, the green, the golds and so on. I want to get the Scarlet Dusk and see if I can how the shadows can play with each other since that has more of a red and purple feel but in the meantime I do have this one. While the Ulta sets, on the other hand, you can play with so many things with these sets. They have so many colors in the big ones as well and you can do so many looks with the shadows. I have to give it to Glamour On the Go because it has really pretty green shades alongside blues and of course I will be taking this with me to conventions since it is a compact set I can just pull out and not have to worry about putting so many makeup pallets or compacts in my luggage. I still have the Be Gorgeous set in tact since that was a colorful dream right there from 2017 and still my favorite.
Show Your Smallest Pallet: My Urban Decay Naked Mini Pallet! I haven’t touched this either but felt like mentioning it since I got it in the Urban Decay Honey Set which came with the Amber eyeliner, the Honey Setting Spray, and the Honey Shadow Primer Potion and I love the Naked Honey Pallet and was wondering if like the Naked Heat if it was coming out with a mini as well and guess what? It did but in a set which kind of sucked but hey what can you do? This is in a different format from the mini versions of Naked and Naked 2 and Heat where this used more of a cardboard packaging over the plastic and it had the shadows three by three and side by side which I prefer! There are times where I see them in a row and not sure where they are positioned and grab the wrong one but here it is better to get what you need since they are side by side and do a three shadow look. I have to use this and see how it goes and use it with my Naked Honey pallet too since like with Heat it did come with shadows that didn’t appear in the Naked Honey.
Show Your Biggest Pallet: I have mentioned it but my Game of Thrones and of course giving it to the Emily Edit Wants Pallet from Makeup Revolution. The Game of Thrones pallet came in a box that you slide the pallet out and you have the throne pull out on top which made it pretty heavy in the first place but wishing it was in a pallet that just shows off scenes in pictures than just the wasteful throne. My opinion right there. While the Emily Edit Wants Pallet, it was really good! I know there was some controversy about the application of this pallet but I had no issue putting it on with my brushes since there are times where brushes do apply makeup well and other times a finger would do and I am not a finger in my application person. I would only do it with shadow primers if need be and guiding my pencils and brushes. This pallet was big for the amount of shadows you get and they are colors that fit with Emily’s life and did like how she put the pallet together. I did enjoy the green shades and of course the maroon type shades that came in this pallet yes Makeup Revolution can be hit or miss but glad this was a hit!
Show Your Pallet With the Best Memory: I would give it to the Too Faced Merry Macarons pallet! I remembered this one sold out all over the place during 2016 and it was on my Christmas List and when I found out it was back in stock at the Ulta my dad went to because he wanted to still get it for me since he felt bad about it selling out and when I heard it was in stock I begged the store associate over the phone to hold it for me. She tried being snippety about it like, “Not sure if we can do that.” And then I said, “Please!” A couple of times and she said, “Fine, I will hold it until noon for you.” And I rushed to my dad’s room and got him up and out of bed and told him what happened and he got me the pallet even though it did come with the Better Than Sex Mascara deluxe size but mainly cared about the shadow pallet. I still have it and it’s still pigmented. The smell slightly gone away since it was a subtle cookie smell to it.
Show A Pallet With A Lot of Hype: I give it to the Naked Honey pallet from Urban Decay and the Beached Pallet from them too. I remembered when the Beached Pallet coming out for summer 2018 and was still living with my parents and this caught my eye so much! I saw so many people talking about the shades even the teal shades really caught my interest due to how nice and deep they were and they did go well with the bronze shades in this pallet. Plus it’s easy to travel and you can just use a few here and there for a nice look and add either a blue liner or a bronze liner. While the Naked Honey, on the other hand, this was a really good pallet and people have enjoyed it, even me, plus so many compliments were made on what I wore with this pallet. I think this was the best release from Urban Decay in 2019 since they have done three or four releases last year and glad they stuck it to that since most brands are over saturating the market and this has been a brand I turned to for their Naked pallets if I wanted to pull one out for a particular look.
Show a Pallet that’s not worth the Hype: Sorry guys but anything Morphe is not worth the hype. I feel that so many people hype the brand up that I can’t go a few videos without hearing that this brand is amazing or use my code and so on. I have heard how the Jacklyn Hill Vault was not that great and how she re-released it within a month and as most companies do it and explain, like Marlena from Makeup Geek and Jeffree Starr, eye shadows take time to formulate and press and on top of that go through try on to see if the formula is just right before release and I feel that Moirphe just presses and releases with a lot of their shadow pallets. After trying the Vegan Brush set I felt like my money is better in going towards better brush sets from other brands and shadows I have loved over time.
Show A Favorite Pallet From a Favorite Brand: The Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics! I love this pallet because it is so versatile and I love it as a go to work pallet. It is so blendable and I love the color scheme in this pallet since it just have more of a softer look to it and love how it stays on. I did find out the hard way that they discontinued the Naked 2 which makes me sad about that and hoping they bring a Naked 2 Reloaded pallet like with the first and I did notice that the mirror always fell off in the Naked 2 which was pretty bad so I had to toss it. Hoping they do a relaunch of the Naked 2. Still the Naked 2 Basics is always a favorite from Urban Decay in my book and hoping they keep it!

Well guys that is it for this tag! Glad to do this since it does kind of made me think about what I’ve enjoyed in my collection and what I have missed since I haven’t touched some of my makeup throughout quarantine unless it was to try something new for Instagram or for a video. Glad that this tag was created and had fun talking about eye shadow pallets from the past and the present and my thoughts on them. What is next? Reading another book so you have to wait and see! Until next time! Stay beautiful!

Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm May 2020

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

BoxyCharm May 2020!

My last box for the month and that is BoxyCharm! Best saved for last and this box is $25 a month and you get five full-size products from prestige to luxury and they range from skin care to makeup to lifestyle. Let’s see what I got this month!

ELEMIS Dynamic Resurfacing Pads: First is my choice item for this month and it’s from ELEMIS! I have been enjoying this brand so far and when I saw these I had to get these to try out. These pads have the tri-enzyme formulation with lactic acids and probiotics to help smooth the skin to reveal a luminous complexion. This sounds like the First Aid Beauty ones and I like those since I got the travel size in this box which I bought and then when 21 Days of Beauty came I bought two of the full-size pack which this is what I got this product in which is around the same size of the First Aid ones. These are pricier than those which the retail price is $59. Okay, this box is paid!
Studio MakeUp Eyes Ease to Wear Pallet: Next is an eye shadow pallet from Studio MakeUp. I remembered when I was not subscribed for two years and this brand was in the box and wanted to try them and finally get to since I got back in last year. This shadow has shades that compliment every skin tone and has a creamy texture to them and gives day to night looks with one swipe and easy blendibility. I will have to see with this pallet since I’ve seen some shadow pallets where I have to dip in more than once so I will see what happens. Plus, this pallet smells really good, it reminds me of the scent of Tarte shadows. This pallet retails for $35.
Pretty Vulgar I Am Caged Shadow Primer: Next is an item from Pretty Vulgar and that is their eye shadow primer. I saw this tube and was wondering what it was and glad that it was this! This is a lightweight and blendable formula that helps smooth lids and make shadows pop. I can’t wait to try this product out because I have been switching out eye shadow primers and glad I get to try this one while I’m doing that. This retails for $22.
Appeal Ultra Crème Liquid Lipstick: Next is a liquid lipstick from Appeal Cosmetics. I thought this was a mascara so I have to fish it out of my giant Caboodle. I do love liquid lipsticks and glad to try this item out from Appeal. This is a luxurious and creamy lipstick with a satin sheen, also only one coat is needed. I will have to see how that goes because the Tarte Sugar Rush lipstick claimed the same thing but did have to dip in another time. I have to see how this works out since there are formulas that can be drying and uncomfortable while other ones are very comfortable, stay tuned for my Round up Review! This retails for $21!
Tarte Magic Micellar MakeUp Remover and Cleanser: Final product is from Tarte Cosmetics and it’s their Magic Micellar MakeUp Remover. I have been getting back into cleansing waters where I use them after using my makeup wipe to make sure everything gets off my face since there are times where I have mascara sticking behind on my lashes and that can be annoying. Let’s see what this says! This item removes the hardest to remove makeup, even waterproof, and excess oils without stripping the skin. Can’t wait to try this out! This retails for $18.

Okay, this month was a really good month for BoxyCharm! I got items I would use and get to try out since I have enjoyed some of these brands already. ELEMIS already had my choice with the facial pads since I wanted to try more items by them but their prices are a bit on the high side so glad to try this when I pay for the box. I have been enjoying the items from Tarte which I’m glad to get a Micellar water to try out and an eye primer from Pretty Vulgar on top of it. I get to try out more Appeal and finally try out Studio MakeUp! All in all a really good month! Can’t wait to see what June brings since there are possible products to come! Can’t wait! I do have a tag post coming up so stay tuned!

Studio MakeUp Ease to Wear Shadow Pallet
Pretty Vulgar I’m Caged Shadow Primer

Note: Shades vary when they came in the box!

Subscription Satelite: Glam Bag Plus May 2020

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

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus May 2020!

It is time for my Glam Bag Plus guys! I got this with my Glam Bag which is a first. As you know last month it traveled away from home but this month it came early even with an add-on. This tier is $25 and you get more full-size products to try out and it’s a good way of replenishing some of the items you’re running out and trust me I’m happy for this subscription since there are times when some of my skin care items are running low. You get from indie brands to luxury and it’s good to try those through this when you only pay the $25 versus the retail price. Let’s see what I got!

Beauty For Real High Def Mascara in Black: First is a product from Beauty For Real and that is their High Def Mascara in black. I love getting to try mascaras from brands I already have tried through subscriptions or from newer brands. I’ve tried a few items from Beauty For Real and I think they’re okay but when I saw this in my box I hope it’s good since mascaras can be hit or miss. It claims to be long-wearing and smear proof and also fast way of getting your lashes voluminized, long, and curled and the wand fits any lash length even really short ones. I can’t wait to see how those claims come true. This retails for $19!
MOTD I Got It Five Piece Brush Set: I almost chose this when it was Choice Day but glad I got it in the box anyways. This is a five piece brush set that is both matte black and rose gold, you know I am a sucker for rose gold since it’s my favorite metallic color, and it has the brush name engraved on each handle to tell you how to use it. I did my video on a brand yesterday and I admit I wished the brushes had a better way of telling what these are for since I can’t see them, I think I used one of them for my crease and another one for my brow due to how small they are. I think these are more of detailed brushes rather than full on brushes. I think I should contact this brand and ask about a Braille letter which would be kind of cool. Anyways, these are pretty soft brushes and not going to lie and the set is small enough to travel with so if you’re going for a business trip or a convention these would be a great companion! These retail for $34.
Colored Rain Cosmetics Vineyard Soiree Pallet: Next is a pallet from Colored Rain and this was almost my choice item but then chose the other item. I had a feeling this would be chosen for my bag this month if I hadn’t chosen it. I like how sometimes they put in items you haven’t chosen in the box since there are a few items in this box over the regular Glam Bag. This is a GB Plus exclusive and its limited edition which almost had me choose it but you will see why I chose the item when I did. This is a six shadow pallet with four mattes and two shimmers and it is a gray and berry pallet for that smoky look and you know you have me at hello with smoky! Even though I do the neutral looks but I do love my smoky looks and that has been a favorite since I started wearing makeup. Plus it is an easy to go to look for me. This brand will be on my MakeUp Meteor list which is my newest series over on the channel since some brands aren’t always on the radar and so far after trying out their liquid lipstick I am starting to like this brand! I know someone talked about the Chinese dupes thing but FYI a lot of brands do manufacture in China and I believe this is one of them. Anyways, this pallet retails for $22.
Sugar Rush Sugar Coated Velvet Liquid Lipstick in Sprinkle: Finally get to try a product from Tarte’s sister brand Sugar Rush with this liquid lipstick! I am even playing the song from Wreck It Ralph! Couldn’t help it because it popped in my head. This claims to be a matte drying liquid lipstick that doesn’t crack and it has sunflower seed and rose hemp oils to help with fine lines in the lips to help them be softer and only need one coat. Plus it’s a berry shade too. I smelled this and man it smells like cake frosting! I love cake and can’t help it. I have to try this out and see how I like it and I know they’re available through Ulta. This retails for $15.
Nomad Cosmetics Sidney Bathers Pallet: Finally my choice item is of course from Nomad Cosmetics! I just did a video on this brand and I have been loving them! When I saw this on the choice list for this box I had a hard time choosing between this, the brush set, and the shadow pallet but when I read the shades in this pallet it got my choice since it features two highlighters, one warm bronzer, and one cooler bronzer/contour shade. It also smells really good and it’s due to the macadamia oil used with the milled pigments for this pallet. If you’re vegan and want to find a new brand to try out Nomad is perfect because they are a vegan brand and use naturally sourced ingredients and oils for their shadows and face products. I want a lip product from these guys because trying out their items I want to see a liquid lipstick from them, I even said that in my video. That will come soon to the channel but in the mean time you can use highlighter30 for 30% off your highlighter pallet purchase from this brand and this pallet retails for $27.

Add-On: In Beauty Project Glaze #1 Lip Oil in Candy Apple: This is being replaced by Ipsy because it came moldy and I am not the only one who had it happen to either. Just_Ann talked about it in her Glam Bag Plus video where she got hers with mold and it got me worried since other people were commenting on her pinned comment that she got a response from Ipsy about it and they will be contacting the brand. I think it’s due to it not using any artificial ingredients since it uses all natural oils. This can happen with some ingredients where they can congeal which happened with mine along with the mold, thank you fiancée, and hoping with my replacement it doesn’t come moldy either. I want to try out more colored lip oils since my buddy Rayne has since our trip to Riley Rose two years ago. And of course during work my lips do feel parched when I talk or wear a lot of lip items. This retails for $15.

Well guys that is it for my GB Plus for May! Good bag with nothing but makeup! I do love my skin care but with this pandemic it has been what I’ve been buying the most especially my usual items. I can’t wait what is up for Choice for June since the choices for GB Plus are better than the regular bag in my opinion but there are times where it’s hard to choose if they’re really good! I will see how it goes when the 24th comes around! Next up will be my BoxyCharm!
In Beauty Project Lip Oil

The Book Quadrant: Wine Hard, Baby by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

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

Wine Hard Baby by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Disclaimer: This review is based on thoughts and opinions from the lead writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts on this ARC that was sent to her for review!

The Oh Hell No series continues with Wine Hard, Baby. In this book we meet up with Camilla who has left Austin after turning down a hot cowboy guy with tattoos all over his arms and a devilish smile alongside great brown eyes named Jed now lives in Oregon and working at winery until he turns up there. With questions of why running through her head, she has her own reasons to stay away from the temptations of him and doesn’t want to say why but the more she fights the more she knows about him and one more thing is that she is engaged to a guy she doesn’t know.

Thoughts: I have to say is that I enjoyed this book more than the last one, My Pen Is Huge, because it was funnier and it had more personality to it. I felt the last one it was a little complicated after thinking back on it even though I still liked it but this book was better since I liked how Camilla and Jed worked together even if she cussed him out and also come up with different words for the manly bits. Even though we allow many ages on this website, I don’t want to have someone get on my case for saying a particular word if you know what I’m saying. I did like the switch between the both of them because not only we got to see what Camilla had to think at first but Jed’s thoughts as well and I hope Mimi keeps on writing these kinds of books because we get to see more into her characters’ heads and how they deal with what’s going on.

With this book, I was surprised that Camilla came from a religious family who only wants to have her marry within the congregation. I like how she is finding ways of trying to say that she doesn’t want that and prefers to be happy and love for love which is true, you should love the person rather than being forced into it from other factors. When we have the arranged fiancé he sounded like he was forced into it as he didn’t want to be there but have to make the Clarks happy since they were also there. Found it funny that he ended up to be the guy that Camilla’s parents were not expecting for her. In the end, I preferred Jed and Camilla being together because they made a cute couple even though they had to make it a partnership due to the vineyard but they did work better together than Camilla would with Milton, the guy she was supposed to marry. I guess breaking one’s heart at first does bring you together again.

Rating: 5 Shooting Star Paw Prints Out of 5! I felt this was a better book since it did show what had happened to Camilla and how she found love. First with Tass and her guy it was due to childhood teasing, then with her roomie finding love with Henry all thanks to a bet, Georgie with her secretive spy guy who was her boss, then her best friend being with the hot swimmer that had a hit on his head, then Gisela with Leland being a little off and on, and finally Camilla with Jed. I also found this book very funny and cute and does show how you can find love even if you’re either annoyed at the person who was trying to make things better but it does end up being figured out. I am not sure if this is the end but it did round off the series very well and who knows what else Mimi would do next since there are other books I’m waiting for, so let’s see what happens!

That is it for this review guys! Next is my GB Plus for May!
