Ipsy: March Throwback

First of all, this is one of the cuuuutest bag I've gotten in a while!
This bag was probably about 50/50 on how I liked the actual products I received, but keep reading for a cool surprise in the end!

This is the NYX Liquid Suede lipstick and I really enjoyed it! I was wary of this color when I first pulled it out, but after putting it on I found out that it was really pretty!!  It dries very matte, and lasts quite a while. 

This is a really pretty eyeshadow, it is the brand Manna Kadar in the color Fantasy.  It is a pretty basic color and the packaging is kind of cheap, but it is a nice full size, so I'm not mad at it!

I never wear my hair straight three days in a row... This is a nice product from Marc Anthony again, and it smells good, it just isn't something I will use often.

This is the Pixie blush and highlighter duo in rose gold, and it was sooooo pretty!  And then it fell off my sink and instantly broke on the edge.  And then it happened again and completely shattered.  I can't tell you how upset I am because it was gorgeous, but just way way too soft...

Another nice eyechadow brush, this time from Beau Gachis, that I actually used with the highlighter in this bag, until I broke it that is...

So if you review your products after receiving them from Ipsy, you get points!  With these points you can then "buy" different products and essentially get bonus products for free!  In this bag I used up my points to get a Beaute Basics eyeshadow pencil in Sahara Gold, a Selfie 2 hour self tanner, and the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water!  The Primer Water was by far my favorite out of these products, and it can be used as a primer or finishing spray, which is how I used it.

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

Nadine West: May

I signed up for a new subscription service!  I know... So surprising. This one is Nadine West; it is a clothing subscription service, but unlike many other similar services it is only $9.98 per month!  The items in the package tend to run from around $10 to $30, but if you choose to keep anything then the price of shipping will be deducted from whatever you don't return!  It also comes with a prepaid shipping label and whatever you don't like you put back in the bag it came in, cover the old shipping label, and stick it in the mail!  Easy as that!
Sorry, I couldn't wait to open it to get a really good picture...  But isn't it wrapped super cute? When you sign up you take a style quiz picking examples of clothes and jewelry you like and how often you would like to receive them, as well as your preference on colors and patterns.  Each month you should receive at least one clothing item, as well as two or three other accessories!
They nailed my taste in earrings!  These …

Nadine West: Second Shipment

This was my second shipment of Nadine West, which is a styling service which sends you clothing and accessories for about $10 a month (or every two weeks if you prefer).  You have about a week to a week and a half to try on the cloths and decide if you like them enough to keep them, and if you do the price you paid for shipping is subtracted from the total cost of the items you elect to keep!  What make it even better?  Everything is under $30!
Can you see the disdain on my face? I hate skulls and was really disappointed to see this print top in my bag.  It was also suuuuuper tight.  This might be some peoples style, but not mine.  And it seems so off the wall!  Everything else in my bags have been so bright and cheery, and this is so dark.  Regardless, this is the Ailsa top and it retails for $17.49.
This is called the Elena romper and it retails for $29.99. So, I kept saying in all of my reviews on Nadine West that I wanted rompers and I liked off the shoulder tops.  In theory they…
