September MyGlam (Ipsy) Bag!

Here's a look at the September MyGlam (now Ipsy) Bag!

The first item in this months bag was, yet another, Circus by Andreas Choice Nail Polish. This time I received a purple/magenta color called Tightrope. (To know more about these polishes and the company owner go here! )

Next up was an eyeshadow from Marbella, in the color Semiformal. This shade is a somewhat coppery bronze. Very neutral and gorgeous.

The next item I pulled out of the bag was the Monoi Repairing Split End Sealer. I haven't used this product yet, but once I do, expect I full review of it! This product is supposed to bind together (temporarily) your frayed/split ends.
  This next product I'm unfortunately not a fan of. It's a Jane Sparkle Gloss. To me this lip gloss is just too sticky, and although very pretty, it just does not work well for my skin tone. Too hot pink for me!
Lastly is the item that wasn't in the bag (it was too big). I received a SOHO smudge brush. I actually really like this brush, although I don't use it for it's main intention. I use it to blend in my concealer! I did try it for eyeshadow once and it does work wonderfully, But I found that I like to blend in my under eye concealer with it more.The only downfall of this brush, that I've found, is that it's not made quite well. I noticed that brush makes cracking noises towards the top every time I use it. I almost sounds like it's going to snap off! Other than that, it really is a nice brush.

That's it for September! Leave your opinions of this bag down below! :)

Review: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Beige

The fall season has arrived! And so has the new fall line for Maybelline. Recently Maybelline released their new limited edition collection of Color Tattoo Eyeshadows called "Scene on the Runway" for fall 2012. There are four new eyeshadow shades, each of which are earthy and fall appropriate tones. Out of all four I managed to get my hands on the lightest shade, "Barely Beige".

Barely Beige is a shimmery champagne color.  I find it very similar to Urban Decay's eyeshadows Virgin and Sin if they are blended together. It's truly a gorgeous shade.

(worlds worst swatch :P)

 Because these are limited edition for this fall season, I suggest you get your butt out there to snatch them up ASAP! I found it very hard to find this collection in the stores around my area, they seem to be selling out rather fast. I wish this particular shade was in the permanent line, i would definitely repurchase it when I run out. I may just go grab a back up soon .
