June 2014 Ipsy
Oh yes, my Ipsy bag is here! I am totally loving it. Once I found out we were get a NYX Butter Gloss, I was all ‘Hells YEAH!’ The makeup bag is a Rebecca Minkoff design. It  is small and pretty. The dark blue pattern reminded me of curtains we had in the 90’s well not so much curtains as a fancy ass valance. Remember those things? Big poofy valances? And back to 2014….

June’s theme is Pretty in Paradise. Everything you need for a beach babe look?

June 2014 Ipsy Be a Bombshell mascara
Be A Bombshell Lash Out Mascara 
Be A Bombshell Lash Out Mascara            $15 @beabombshellcosmetics.com
A rich pigmented mascara with a lengthening formula that offers a multidimensional look.
I have been loving almost every product I have received from Be a Bombshell so this should be no exception… I hope. I am putting this in the ‘mascara cue’ as I have a few on the go right now. The packaging is simple and chic. I haven’t even opened it yet. I read it smells weird but eh I am still going try it.

June 2014 Ipsy NYX Butter Gloss
NYX Butter Gloss  
NYX Butter Gloss              $6 @ nyxcosmetics.com
Buttery soft and silky smooth, the scrumptious new NYX Butter Lip Gloss tastes as sweet as a sugar cookie—and makes your lips look downright luscious.
I was so thrilled to see that we were getting one of these. NYX is hard for me to find now. I have had Crème Brule before so I am totally happy to get it again. Love these glosses. I used to use Crème Brule to mellow out my more intense lips shades.

June 2014 Ipsy OFRA brow pencil
OFRA Universal Eyebrow Pencil  
OFRA Universal Eyebrow Pencil                                 $13 @ofracosmetics.com
OFRA's Universal Eyebrow Pencil is a resistant pencil suitable for the most sensitive eye area. It is the perfect solution for your eyebrows and is called Universal Eyebrow Pencil for a reason as it is one color to suit all skin tones. It is soft enough and will make it easy for you to create a perfect shape.
I did use this brow pencil the last two days. It is a really nice.. It is long lasting and the colour seems to suit me albeit a little bit dark. I remember looking at my face afterwards and going Whoa at how dark my brows were. But I also just dyed my hair so it all works. I am just not sure how 'universal' it is? t
The harder you press the darker the colour etc. Well that is just common sense isn't it? in that aspect almost any eye pencil would be 'universal' by that standard.

Marc  Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray
Realtree for Her
Marc  Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray           $8 @walmart.caCreate natural, effortless, beach hair worn loose, soft and wavy. It adds body and texture to straight, fine strands or pumps up the curl in already wavy hair. Add extra definition to your wavy layers. Hydrolyzed Silk and Provitamin B5 protect your tresses while adding moisture and shine. Powerful UV Protectors absorb ultraviolet light to save your mane from harmful sun exposure, dehydration and color-fade. You’re left with manageable, touchable waves. Even the straightest hair can achieve tousled beach hair any time of year.
I was excited to try this but was really ‘meh’ about it after I did. Maybe I didn’t use enough of this when I tried it. Maybe too much? I don’t know but it didn’t seem to do anything for me.  I just sprayed and scrunched. I usually have a hard time with these types of hair products. Either they don’t do anything or they gunk up my hair in seconds. Maybe I will try with the diffuser on my next go around and see how that works.

Realtree for Her               $6.99 deluxe sample $19.99 full size @realtreebeauty.com
Originating from the creator and marketer of the worlds most versatile camo pattern makers, Realtree has decided to develop a sensitive yet delicious fragrance that captures you. Realtree for Her opens up with the sweet taste of pomegranate, a hint of persimmon and an exotic scent of orchids. It blends with lotus blossom and champaca flower and is followed by the rich scent of amber, the transient scent of violets and the depth of mahogany wood.  
I like the little spray tube bottle although it seems to pump out superblasts of the scent. The scent was interesting. Persimmony and musky. LOL I don’t even know what I am talking about. HAHA I am so bad with describing scents. It smelled decent almost like a men’s cologne. It is not something I would run out and buy. This one seemed to linger a little too strong for me all afternoon.
