A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

Subscription mail call!

on December 12, 2013

I arrived home today to discover that I had not one, but THREE packages today. Not only was it Birchbox day, it was my first ipsy delivery and I somehow received two… um, oops? Two of the exact same bag. Someone will be getting a super cute makeup bag with some great stuff in it from me for Christmas. 🙂

Here is the side by side comparison of the shipments:


The top is Birchbox and contains:

Hayadi Pure Happy Smooth
FusionBeauty LashFusion XL™
BENTA BERRY G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser
Emily’s Chocolates Chocolate Covered Fortune Cookies
Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips
This box is great – I’ve been a bit disappointed in the last couple months, so BB totally redeemed themselves this month. I’m also excited that due to my massive stash of mascara that I’m set for all of 2014. My husband will be thrilled.
On the bottom is the ipsy shipment:
Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio  by POP Beauty
The One Stick by Be a Bombshell
Eye Blender Brush by Mirabella
Perfectly Natural Strip Eyelashes by Salon Perfect
Big Lip Pencil by J.Cat Beauty
WOW. This is a LOT of product for $10. I’m excited to try everything in the bag. I haven’t had a chance to swatch anything yet, but I have no doubt I’m going to love all of the colors.

  1. […] The reward for finishing baking and frosting cookies and cleaning the house was to finally try all of the fun stuff that came last week in my ipsy Glam Bag. As I mentioned, this was my first one and I’m very happy so far. You can read my previous post on my initial reaction here. […]
