Trying out new purchases from ColourPop
It’s been a really long time since I did a Beauty Blog post, but I figured I’d do a quick run down for my first ColourPop order.
Back around December/January I was seeing a lot of ads for ColourPop, and they were having a pretty nice sale – so I put out the call on my socials to see if anyone I knew had ever bought from them – and… crickets.
Either my post didn’t get seen (thanks algorithm), or no one I knew had ordered from them to give feedback. In early June, they had another similar sale (not quite as good, but pretty good all the same…) so I figured I’d take the plunge and check it out. Continue reading
CoBloWriMo – Costume Blog Writing Month
For today’s Costume Blog Writing Month challenge, the prompt is “book recommendation”. I’ve blogged about costuming, crafting, beauty, and quilting books in the past, so I had lots to draw from for this challenge…
Screen printing with the Heidi Swapp kit
I LOVE a good craft kit – something where pretty much all of the materials to get started are included so I can try something out with a low commitment.
I did some screen printing in school, and LOVED it – but it is pretty involved with a number of tools needed, so when I saw the Heidi Swapp screen printing kit at Michael’s I thought I’d give it a whirl.
March Ipsy Glam Bag
On March 29, my March Ipsy Glam Bag FINALLY arrived…
Normally it comes around the 15th -17th, so I was a bit irritated that it was so long – too late in fact to enter any of the Instagram giveaway contests too. 😦 boo.
(Or maybe hurrah for any of you who have been getting sick of me filling my Instagram with make up and selfies!)
So… here’s what I got in my Glam Bag:
Super-short post today about my February Glam Bag from Ipsy, so I can get back to other posts in my queue.
My Ipsy Glam Bag this month contained:
Baby Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral
- I am really loving tre’StiQue’s products through Ipsy, and hope that they continue to send me their sticks through my glam bags.
- The colour is perhaps a bit more orange than I’d normally purchase, but it actually works on me I think.
- The colour blends really nicely with fingertips (I didn’t bother trying one of my blending brushes) and has a nice matte-finish despite being a stick.
- I don’t know if the colour LASTED very long though – it blended a bit too well perhaps, and wasn’t super-dramatic.
