March was a great cosmetics month for me! I discovered the elf website (RIP money), and I got a couple of great beauty boxes in the mail. That being said, I’ve decided to tone it down a bit, so there’ll be some changes to the sorts of things you see on here.
I purchased my first elf lipstick from Target when it was still in Canada (also, RIP), and I loved it. So upon discovering how inexpensive it is to shop from them online, I bought another two lipsticks – the one I originally got was pink, so I tried a tan shade, and also black which is my new favourite thing ever. I also picked up another pink lipstick, and a couple of different black eyeliners that I’m excited to try!
This month’s Topbox was pretty great – on top of my four expected products, I received a handful of Dove hair products, which was cool. Whenever I see lip products, I get excited – so the NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss is already one of my favourites (even though it is a gloss and gets my hair sticky when I headbang at concerts). I haven’t tried the Eyeko London Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner yet, but eyeliner is something I love to experiment with, so I’ll be giving that a go soon. As for the L’Oreal Professionnel Fix Anti-Frizz, I am in love. Anything anti-frizz is super helpful to my hair. And the Cake Beauty Desserted Island Supreme Body Mousse I haven’t tried yet, but I am excited to see how it works.
Once again, my monthly ipsy glam bag was awesome. It keeps getting better and better. I already am in love with the tarte cosmetics quick dry matte lip paint. Like I’ll probably purchase it regularly now. The INT Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Goddess Gold and the Skone Cosmetics Luxe Pro Blending Brush have been happily added to my collection, with intent to try these for an event I have coming up. I’m also super excited to try the OUAI Treatment Masque because I tried their Wave Spray a couple months ago, and I love their products! When I saw the Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream – I was so interested. I’m not typically a cream person, but this just looks too cool (and cute) not to give it a go.
As for the changes coming up – I actually unsubscribed from Topbox. Not that there was anything wrong with it, but I’m making some cutbacks and budgeting, and I chose ipsy over Topbox for a few reasons. I like the bags you get from ipsy, and I greatly prefer the bag-reviewing process. So I’ll still be posting beauty hauls, but it’ll be narrowed down to ipsy and whatever else I happen to buy that month!
See anything here that catches your eye? Are you an ipster with some preferred products in the March bag? Let me know!
