Ipsy September + Past Hightlights

So I finally took the dive, and bought an Ipsy subscription!  I have enjoyed watching these videos for years, but could never bring myself to go ahead and buy it, but I'm so excited I did!
First of all, can we talk about how incredibly cute this bag is?  It is a metallic brown pleather above the zipper and on the back, and below the zipper is textured.  I thought is was so cute, that I used it as a clutch on my Anniversary!

So the first thing I received on the far left is First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.  This is a very thick unscented hand cream, which will be great for Winter!

The second thing I received was Elizabeth Mott Queen of the Fill tinted brow gel.  I was really excited about this, because I've never tried a brow product before, but I have been wanting to!  Sadly, because I don't pluck or wax my brows, they were very thick and dark to begin with and the thick brow look did not work for me...

The third thing I received on the far right, is Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Primer Style Prep.  This is basically a heat protectant, for sleek (I'm assuming meaning straight?) styles.  I have been using this, and haven't noticed a huge difference in my hair, but it smells amazing! It is almost a spicy, fruity, fall kind of scent! Really unexpected, yet very pleasant!  My only complaint with this product would be that it had leaked all over everything else during shipping...

I also received this eyeshadow from a NYX and Ipsy partnership, that can't be bought in stores!  I have really been enjoying it.  It has a champagne light brown that is very shimmery, a medium brown color with a bit of glitter, and finally a soft black.  These colors are very pigmented and buildable. 

The final thing I received J. Cat Beauty #MOTD Waterproof Slide on Pencil for Eyes in Bronze.  It is a very smooth and pigmented pencil that is made to last for the whole day!  Though I have quite a few pencils in this color already, it's nice, so no complaints.

Finally, since I have been slack and not shown you my July or August bags, I thought I would show you the highlights from both!
In July I received this cloth, almost tie-dye bag, that fit the "Summer Lovin" theme quite well!  My favorite product from the month was Octavio Molina Hair La Playa Salt Spray.  I have tried the Not Your Mother's Beach Spray before, and I like this one a lot more!  It has a good hold, and a very salty beachy smell.  I have found it works best on dry hair, and does well reviving tired curls and scrunched hair.

In August I received this black and white bag that has almost a vinyl texture, which I was too crazy about.  My favorite thing by far in this bag was the Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eye Liner Pen.  I have tried eyeliner pens before, and tried winged eyeliner before, and neither have ever really worked out... until this!  This glides on so smoothly, lasts forever, yet when you make a mistake, easily wipes off!  This is probably my favorite makeup item I've ever had!

If you want to see me use many of these in an unsponsored routine check out my Get Ready with Me: Anniversary post!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on mypetalclub.com, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

SprezzaBox: September + Bonus Box!

You all may remember that I ordered a Sprezza box last year around this time of the year as a present for my boy.  If you want to see that box you can find it here!  I was amazed then, and then I ordered these and have been even more impressed!  These boxes are full of really nice quality products for men, and I love that there is a subscription company catering to the men in our lives and trying to make them dress better. When I ordered they were doing a promotion, which was the current box and a past box for $20.  I'm not sure if it is still active, but I used the code "BONUSBOX20" so you all can give it a shot!

The September box theme was "The Perry" with classic patterns, but heavier fabrics and darker colors for fall.

This box included: Bryt Dress Socks - $11.66FRESHeTech Earbuds - $29.95Peter Daniel Leather Bracelet - $10Sprezza Pocket Square - $18English Laundry Oxford Bleu Cologne - They said this small bottle was worth $20, but the full size 1.7 oz is …
