My Top 10 Products from Ipsy

I have been an Ipsy lover since my sister showed me their site last year! How amazing is it to get 5 Products all based on what you love, in the mail, each month for only $10.00?!

I thought it would be a good idea to share the items I have received with Ipsy and share my top 10 based off the past 5 months.

Each ipsy bag design is different every month and sometimes, they have a meaning as to why they are chosen! I love all of the little bags and I use them all.

Top 10 Favorites

1.

24k Magic Highlighter – this highlight is so beautiful, I can’t get over it. I have an olive skin tone and love the way this looks on my skin.

2.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On – this is the color matte blackist black. I love how smooth this eye liner is.

3.

Too Faced smelted Matte – This is the shade “Queen B” and it is stunning! I really love nude toned colors with a pop of pink tones. It looks gorgeous on.

4.

Pink Brush Luxie 207 – I use this brush for my Smokey eye and it does such a wonderful job at blending.

Black Brush Luxie 239 – They no longer have this in black but have it in the same pink color as the above! I use this Brush when applying my cream shadow! It really holds onto all of the pigmentation of the shadow.

5.

Lavish Foiled Eyeshadow – This rose gold colored eyeshadow is gorgeous! I use it on the top of my lids and the pigmentation is so amazing.

6.Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash – I carry this around with me everyday! It’s perfect for wear and touch ups. It truly extends my lashes and fills them.

7.

Shimmer Shadow – In the shade “All Eyes On Me.” I tend to go for brown and pink shades since I have brown eyes and i love this color! The shimmer is so gorgeous.

8.

Smashbox Radiance Primer – I usually have a hard time finding an eye primer I like, and I found one in smashbox!

9.

Tarte Waterproof Bronzer – Completely forgot this in the main ipsy pictures, but it’s one of my favorites. I love the color of the bronzer and use it to contour.

10.

First Aid Beauty – In the winter, I get horribly dry skin on my hands. I have been using this and it really softens my dry skin.

5 Things You Need in Your Gym Bag

Bag: Steve Madden (Last Year) – SimilarPumaUnder Armour (LOVE the midnight navy/pink colored bag!)

SneakersMetcon Repper Trainers & Roshe One (I have them in black, white, and gray and LOVE them)

Active ProductsCool Down Mist // Cleansing Body Wipes // Mascara & Brown Duo

Headbands: Nike Rainbow Headband SetSimilarSwoosh Sport Bands

Water Bottle: From TJ Maxx (Last Year) – SimilarYetti Rambler – Seafoam // Healthy Human // Hydro Cell

 

This gym bag is my absolute favorite, it fits SO MUCH STUFF! I unfortunately got it last season and it is no longer available but I have linked similar ones above. Seriously though, it fits everything. At all times I have two pairs of sneakers, a water bottle, a pair of clothes (not shown), hair ties, deodorant, ELF products, and my boxing gloves in my bag.

I am currently doing the MAX challenge 10 week program (post will be up later this week on that and my journey) and one of the rules is that you should not wear the sneakers you will be working out in until you get there. This is mainly to keep the mats clean, so people are not working out on dirty mats. So, I always keep my second pair of sneakers in my bag so that I can quickly grab them in the morning before I leave. I workout in the teal and gray pair and use the black ones as my walking to and from. The black sneakers are perfect for leg day or arm day where you will not be doing cardio. They do not offer the best support so I only use them for those days. For the MAX, Friday classes are Cardio Kickboxing, so I always have my gloves with me and handy for my classes.

In the little Ipsy bag I keep a small deodorant and hair ties. I am either going straight from my bed to the gym or straight from work, so I always forget hair ties. How cute is this bag? Ipsy is amazing, I will post all about my Ipsy journey later on this week.

E.L.F has amazing products. I have been using some of there items since I first started using makeup. When they came out with their Active Line, I was so excited to get it. I ended up getting the Post-Workout Mist, the Mascara/Brow resistant duo, and the after workout sweat wipes. I used them yesterday, and LOVE them! The mist was so helpful in cooling down after my cardio and I felt refreshed.

I always carry an empty water bottle in my gym bag. In this case, I use this fun colored Stainless steel water bottle. I got this from TJ Maxx, so I do not have the specific details on it, but it is a stainless steal bottle that keeps drinks hot and cold for long periods of time. I have linked some similar items in the details above. I also have the Yetti cooler that I use for work and love it.

Sorry for the dark picture of the outfit! My husband and I are currently waiting to close on our first home and have been staying with my parents! The only long mirror they have is in their bedroom and their lighting is so dark!

I love pastel colors for the spring – greens, purples, beiges, pinks, etc. They are so beautiful! I thought I would hate this greens sweater but it looks so amazing with a pair of white jeans and beige pumps! I absolutely LOVE the detail of this bag. I love the leather envelope look with the metal handle. I have received so many compliments on this bag and had to share!

Happy Friday Loves!

I am so awkward in pictures! I was yelling for my husband to take pictures of me but couldn’t figure out how I should pose or what I should do! I promise I will at some point get better at having pictures taken of me. I got this a few weeks ago and have been wearing it non-stop. I wish I sized up (although this does fit fine) just for a loser fit, but I love it! It comes with a tie for around the waist but I like it better without. These booties are everything! I wear them with jeans too and will be wearing them with jeans shorts once the weather gets warmer! They are so comfy and you do not need socks!

Work Day into Date Night Outfit

IMG_2295IMG_2296IMG_2297IMG_2298

I have an obsession with off the shoulder tops. They pair so well with everything. I got this sweater as a gift from my sister in law for Christmas and have been wearing it non-stop every since!! It pairs well with jeans (tucked and un-tucked) as well as with skirts or shorts for in the summer. These jeans are incredibly comfortable. I got them with my stitch fix order when I used to get them last year, and wear them any chance that I get. They are a size 4 (27). These flats are so comfortable and cute! I always get so many compliments on them!

Outfits like this can easily be worn during the day and turned into a date night outfit! If you feel like you want to get more dressy, add some heels or booties for a cute outfit.
