Ipsy: July

The bag this moth is so cute!  It has  little beach umbrellas all over it!  And what came in it was no joke either!

The first thing I got was a flat shader brush from Vasanti.  It is a very nice brush, and very soft, I am just getting a little tired of being sent this type of brush... I have plenty now.

This Makeup Forever Mascara is probably my favorite item I've gotten out of a bag thus far!  It doesn't move, at all.  I wore it for 18 hour days in the hot sun and water rides of Disney World and it stayed perfect!  Not only that, it makes your eyelashes look amazing, I highly recommend this.

This is a single eyeshadow from The Balm cosmetics in Matt Moskowitz.   It is a very pretty color, has great staying power, and the packaging is adorable!

I was truthfully pretty unhappy about this...  It is the Eve-NYC Get Glossed Hair Serum.  I just got a hair oil from them last month and gave it very bad reviews because I don't use hair oil often... So they send another.  It smells good and does it's job, it's just not for me.

Ok... I kind of cheated with this one.  I was sent the OFRA cosmetics lip liner, and I don't use lipliner,so I traded with my friend for this Shray Ms. Amazing paper face mask.  I haven't tried it yet, but I like it better than a lip liner and I am excited to give it a shot!

Over all (not counting what I traded) I liked all but one product in this bag a lot!  Now be prepared... August is my final month :(

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, 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.
