Ipsy Bag!

I finally got my Ipsy bag! I'm so happy.

The bag is blue with a blue lining with white stars and dots. It seems like a great travel makeup bag.

The first thing I got was this Soho New York Concealer Brush. I might just use this for eyeshadow because I like the way my fingers blend concealer in.

The second thing I got was this Big Sexy Hairspray. I might just use this to tame down flyaways when my hair's up in a ponytail.

The third thing I got was this Nailtini nail polish in Frappe. I might use this on my toes when it's summer.

The fourth thing I got was this Josie Maran Argan Oil. I might use this tomorrow on my face and hair. I've been wanting to try this, but it costs so much.

The last thing I got was this Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter. It feels so hydrating and nice for the winter.

All in all, this Ipsy bag is pretty darn nice. Nothing remotely makeup about it. It does get boring getting lipglosses and mascaras in every bag, so this one gets two thumbs-up from me!

Thanks for reading!

Product Review: Benefit They're Real! Mascara

I have decided to do a review on my #1 go-to mascara. This is the Benefit They're Real! Mascara. I got this for Christmas and I have not used any other mascara in my collection since. Let's jump right into this.

The bottle is a dark silver with Mascara written at the bottom and They're Real! written in the middle with They're being black and Real being orange and written in fancy lettering. Benefit is written on the top of the bottle. I like how the bottle alone is tapered from the top to the bottom and the handle containing the wand is just one straight line. This has 8.5 grams or 0.3 OZ of product in it and I may be running out already. Benefit doesn't test on animals. I love this mascara so much. I use it almost every day.

The wand itself is an inch long in length and is the same width all the way down. It's covered in short bristles that grab onto each lash. The formula is in between wet and dry, so it dries really fast and doesn't clump. This mascara isn't for everyone, so go out and buy the small size of this just to see if it'll work for you before you buy the full-size of this. That's what I did.



This is after two coats of the mascara. As you can see, it lengthens the lashes beautifully and adds color to them. This is without curling them. I'm so happy with the results. It removes very well with oil-free makeup remover, so I don't have to scrub my lashes.
