{IPSY} Jet Setter

May 2015

“Buckle Up, Buttercup.”

I think Jet Setter is a great theme for May, for me May is the gateway month to a summer of road trips and travel. I am in love with easy multipurpose products that I can throw into a day bag and hit the open road. In the summer months no girl wants to be weighed down by her beauty routine. Simple, portable and elegant is best.

Ipsy changed there sneak peeks this month, I don’t do snap chat so I pretty much missed them all. I hear rumblings that glamglow was included and that a lucky chosen few would receive it in their bags. I am not lucky, I also heard about a clear lip pencil and deep down I knew it was in my future.

“So what did you get in your glam bag?!” Lets unzip it and find out!

Jet Setter

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil + BONUS Revolution High-Color Lipgloss: long-lasting, waterproof liner glides on smoothly to prime AND define—for long-lasting lip color and clean lines. Smooch. Pout. Smack. Nibble. Lick. 24/7 stays put through everything (yes, EVERYTHING) you do. When you use this liner to fill in your lips completely, it primes them for lipstick or gloss, grabbing on to color to help it last.

Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil: The fine tip on this sleek European-designed mechanical pencil has a creamy consistency that glides into place and can also be lightly smudged for a more natural look.

Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches: soothing eye patches refresh, moisturize and brighten tired eyes. Formulated with a unique combination of cornflower to naturally soothe and reduce puffiness; arnica to drain the eye contour; and chamomile to refresh and provide anti-inflammatory benefits.

Luxie Beauty Tapered Blending Eye Brush 205: This Luxie Rose Gold Tapered Blending Eye Brush is a 100% Animal Cruelty Free brush with high quality synthetic hair bristles that are soft to the touch.

CoTZ Face Natural SPF 40: A Balanced Mineral Complex that feels silky & soft and blends translucent, with a sheer matte finish. Superior protection aginst sun-accelerated age-marks has never felt this nice.

I am in a hit or miss relationship with Ipsy at the moment, we are on a low right now, but I just know that one of these days they are going to wow me. Or at least I hope they attempt to wow me again.

{BirchBox} Cupcakes and Cashmere

May 2015
“ELEVATE EVERYDAY LIFE, May’s box is curated by Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, this month’s picks bring out-of-the-ordinary elegance to your daily routine.”


Elevate everyday life…….sounds like a plan to me. I like how BirchBox partnered with a regular girl like you and me and not a celebrity or brand for this month’s curated box and products. Products are more relate-able when they are picked by someone in your own demographic. Or well maybe close to your demographic, I am not one to wear a bold lip color or crazy shade of eye shadow. However I am always willing to try new things.

“So what did you get in your May BirchBox?!”


Cupcakes and Cashmere
