November Ipsy

It was a galaxy bag this month!   
I'm not sure what I could really do with this one, but it is so cute!

As far as the actual contents of the bag, I really liked it!  I feel like each moth they are getting better.  There is less and less stuff that I'm not crazy about, and more and more high end.  This was an expensive bag!

The first thing I pulled out was this lip pencil.  I hadn't ever heard of this brand before, but the full size is $28.  It is a really nice matte color, and I've really enjoyed using it!

I was excited about this high end mechanical eyeliner (in black, "wild child"), that retails for $14.  Upon using it, I was pretty disappointed because it was dark at all!  It looked much more grey on than black.

I wasn't exactly excited when I saw this, but it has probably turned out to be my favorite in the whole bag!  It is a mattefying, but also is really moisturizing and feels very nice on the skin.  I have had very dry skin lately, and I've been using it every morning before I apply my makeup.  This moisturizer is full size, and normally retails for $19.95!

This is China Glaze Nail Polish in Techno, which goes on Amazon for $8.  I have actually not had a reason to have sparkly nails this month, so I haven't tried it yet, but it is gorgeous!  I can't wait to wear it with red this Christmas!

Finally, I got the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara.  A full size retails for $20!  I'd heard a lot about this and was super excited to try it... I have to say, I was disappointed!  It looks amazing on, but it runs down my face like no other!  Besides that, it creates really full long lashes, just don't wear it when you need long lasting makeup!

Overall, it was by far one of my favorite bags!

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…

Glossybox: August (A Cautionary Tale)

So let's talk about Glossybox...  Originally I subscribed when they had a special, three months for $30.  I thought it would be a cheaper way to try something new and see how I liked it, and maybe spice up my content.  I was sadly disappointed.  I wouldn't reccomend Glossybox to anybody.  My subscription was supposed to start in July, but that box never came.  I contacted them about it, and it took a month to get a reply simply saying they would look into it and get back to me the next day.  I waited another week before emailing them again, and at this point I was very upset.  After demanding a reply, explanation, and my box which I had paid for, lo and behold I finally received a tracking number, as well as 100 very useless "Glossydots."   I began to understand that this is not an individual problem and there were many people who didn't receive their boxes and were not getting a reply from their customer service department.  Yet they didn't seem to care.
