Ipsy Review: December 2012

So I just realized that I should be getting a tracking number from Ipsy within a day or two, but that I never reviewed my December bag.  Sorry, folks.  The flu took precedent.  I’ll keep this (relatively) brief. The Bag – It’s smaller in height than other bags, but it’s the first I’ve gotten that’s…

My Glam/Ipsy Review: October 2012

This bag game in three days and shipped on the 10th.  So much speedier shipping, but I think that was thanks to the SmartPost-esque shipping. The Bag – It’s a black and white chevron with a bright red zipper.  I think it looks SO GOOD.  I don’t tend to equate chevron with bombshell, but the…

Trader Joe’s Review: Pumpkin Macarons

Holy wuuuuuuut. Trader Joe’s pumpkin macarons are incredible.  They’re only at Trader Joe’s for a limited time, so snatch them up and hoard them like some sort of pastry dragon. The shells have the perfect balance of crust and meringue.  The filling is a fluffy, whipped cream that’s heavy with pumpkin spice.  They’re pretty much…

MyGlam/Ipsy September 2012 Review

So let’s start here. I got by bag on September 22nd. That’s NOT mid-month. It shipped on the 17th. That’s closer to mid-month, but still wrong. While I will grant that I’ve been having zero love for the postal service lately (the second package was misdelivered out of Cincinatti, I guess.) The bags were shipped…

MyGlam: August 2012

Another month, another Glam Bag.  The August theme was Endless Summer, which the GlamTeam took to mean “don’t ever look old”.  Fair enough, MyGlam. The bag was neon orange mesh with a neon pink zipper.  I was raised to react with horror to that color combination.  But it’s a nice little bag.  I’m starting to…

Sinful Colors Review

Note: at the time of post, it’s been about 2 days since I originally reached out to Sinful Color’s parent company, Revlon, for a customer service complaint (Sinful Colors currently doesn’t have a customer service department at all.)  I’ve received no response. A while back, I purchased three bottles of Sinful Colors polish in a…

Trader Joe’s Macarons

I’m a bit late to the Trader Joe’s game, mostly because my city is a bit late to the Trader Joe’s game.  We just got our first.  We’ve been by once before, but the aisles were so packed with people, I couldn’t even attempt to browse the freezers. For those unfamiliar, Trader Joe’s is the…

MyGlam July 2012 Extended Cut

Let’s revisit that MyGlam post, shall we? I hadn’t gotten to try out a couple products when I reviewed, so Imma tackle them now. First, the conditioner.  I mentioned that it smelled nice.  When I got it out in the shower, I have to say, “nice smell” went to “OH MY GOD I LOVE.”  It’s…

Myglam Bag Review: July 2012

This month’s bag was themed for beach beauty.  It had a couple items that everyone got, then some this or that options.  I think that’s actually sort of fun because even when I totally ruin the surprise of what’s in the bag, I still get something of a surprise.  I love a good spoiler, but…

Beauty Review

A quick rundown of some things I’ve used lately (for all both of you who care.) Wet n Wild Fast Dry Nail Color in Ebony Hates Chris $1 ish – First, let me address the name of this color.  I’m guessing it’s a reference to the show, Everybody Hates Chris?  And it’s black.  This is…

MyGlam: June

My June MyGlam bag came on the 12th.  Last month’s arrived on the 16th, so I was much more pleased with the delivery of this one. As soon as I opened the bag, I caught a whiff of something fishy.  Another well-crafted MyGlam good, clearly.  It was the bag.  I assume the glue holding on…
