IPSY/ February Unboxing+Review

What does sexy mean to YOU? With magazines and social media, we have been told what sexy is in an unrealistic way and with fake expectations. Don't always believe what you see because it is sometimes accomplished by photoshop, airbrush, an app, (yes there are apps out there that make you look voluptuous with an itty bitty waist.) and last but not least plastic surgery. So it's time to just embrace our natural beauty because we are perfectly imperfect.
This months IPSY glam bag's theme is Unzipped, because being sexy isn't limited to a certain size, shape, or age. Sexiness is authenticity, real, and confidence. Let's unzip the way we think about being sexy. Let's define it in our own terms. No rules! No photoshop! No restrictions! Just be 100% sexy your way!
The bag is a beautiful blush pink adorned with black lace trim. It is so romantic perfect for the month of love, don't you think? The five items in my IPSY glam bag; were a hand moisturizer, a lipstick, loose eyeshadow, eyeshadow brush, and a serum. Below I'll give you more information about each product, mini review, and swatches. (Disclosure: This review was not Sponsored by IPSY I paid for my glam bag and all opinions are mine) 
417
Hand Moisturizer
It’s made with a mix of ingredients your skin will love like vitamin E, shea butter, beeswax, and minerals from the Dead Sea. It hydrates, protects, and helps regenerate your skin cells. The formula works to improve your skin’s moisture levels from the inside out best of all it doesn’t feel sticky or greasy. Essentials oils included are sesame, evening primrose, and olive. They are healthy for your skin, smells so pretty like flowers it's subtle not overwhelming and refreshing.


CLINIQUE
Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Love Pop
This lippie has the best of both worlds because it’s a primer and lip color in one. The formula is so soft and very pigmented. Love Pop is a pretty rose shade with a touch of gold shimmer, who doesn't like a lil sparkle on their lips! I really love the cute and fun lip print packaging. The formula feels comfortable and creamy. It isn't transferred proof but will stay put for the most part.


MARSK
Loose Eyeshadow in Foiled Again
This metallic loose powder is really easy to apply and can be used dry (for a subtle shimmer) or wet (for major drama). If you wanna make it even extra, the silvery shade also looks really cool layered over a darker shadow for date night. It is definitely a different color that I don't have in my collection. I really love how sparkly it was once swatched, very pixi fairy vibes.


LUXIE BEAUTY
Blending and Shading Eye Brush 249
One brush to get any eye look. This is an ipster-exclusive,it is a double-sided brush, tapered on one end (for packing down your powder shadows) and fluffy on the flip side (for easy blending). The rose gold handle is so pretty. The soft bristles are synthetic, so definitely cruelty free. I actually have a quad set from past BOXYCHARM so I'm pretty familiar with these brushes. I like that it is a dual brush because it is convenient when packing it on the go. They are also great quality, they are great for creating flawless eyeshadow looks.
M.A.D. SKINCARE
Spot On Targeted Skin Brightening Serum
Step up your skincare game by starting with this serum. It’s packed with vitamin C and botanicals to help brighten up dark spots and uneven skin. It's also hydrating and paraben free.
I absolutely love this month's glam bag, the products I'm excited for is the lipstick, and the hand moisturizer because this feels great on my skin not greasy at all. What items did you get this month, I'd love to hear comment below. Hope this unbagging and mini review has been helpful if you've been considering IPSY. Hope you all have a wonderful day and remember to celebrate the magic of your unique bea-YOU-ty!!

Keep Me Safe Organics / Skin Care Review

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …
