Sephora PLAY! – Box #12 (August)

Sephora PLAY! is now available all over the United States! Go sign up! The “title” of this month’s box is: The Eye Openers. There is a fold-out with a bit about each item on it, and the Play!Pass. The Pass entitles us to one-on-one advice from someone at Sephora (which I think just comes with walking in the door, really), and if you scan the Pass when you are shopping, you are awarded a bonus 50 Beauty Insider points.

On to what came in this month’s bag!

August’s Ipsy Haul!

This month’s Ipsy theme is Sugar Highness. Anyone who’s known me for a few years can probably guess what came to mind when I saw that theme:

 

I was a bit amused to find a couple of my old photos in this mix this morning, too. The 6th one at 0:26 looks identical to one I took of Casper with Coyote in the background, but unfortunately all my photos and things are still in California! (No clue how it wound up with a Viewimages watermark on it…) ANYWAY –

There were two different bag illustrations this month -lucky me, I got the one I wanted! It’s a nice size, with light pink lining inside; I can see myself using this one. And now, for what came inside…  Continue reading “August’s Ipsy Haul!”

Glossybox For August! (Oh, And July!)

After hearing so many good things about Glossybox, I finally broke down and got a three month subscription to see if it lives up to its hype. (The deal advertised on Everything And Nothin’ helped in my decision, too! Hey, buy one and get two boxes free? Sure!)

My first Glossybox was July:

I love how they present the box – nice tissue paper and tied with a black satin-feel ribbon. And for the reveal… Continue reading “Glossybox For August! (Oh, And July!)”

Unboxing: Target Beauty Box – July

Target seems to have settled into a box-per-month rhythm. This month they offered two, but I just nabbed the one I was more interested in. If you go to their site and search “beauty box” near the end of the month, you can usually see sneak previews of what’s going to be in the upcoming box. They have been released at the beginning of the month recently, so keep an eye out, and snag one early – they do sell out fast!

First, the insert card that tells you about what you will find in the box. It also has a coupon for $3.00 off any beauty purchase of $15.00 or more – which makes the cost of this box more like $4.00 instead of the $7.00 I spent on ordering it. (Okay, yes – that’s that hinky Continue reading “Unboxing: Target Beauty Box – July”

July’s Ipsy Haul

This month’s Ipsy theme is Hot Summer Nights. Makes me think of Meat Loaf. The performer, not the Tuesday night dinner plate!

2016 07 21 July bag

 

This bag totally made up for the not-so-fun bag last month. It’s a holographic silver with a rainbow of undertones, and I love the top-view umbrellas with offset shadows! The inside is a nice baby pink color, too. Something I wouldn’t recommend for constant use because it will get dirty easily, but I think it’s cute! And now, for what came inside…  Continue reading “July’s Ipsy Haul”
