Ipsy is slowly becoming my favorite value beauty subscription service. For only $10, the products they send you are well worth the money. Back when Ipsy was new, I didn't subscribe because I felt like the samples they sent you were literally just that - tiny samples. But Ipsy has grown to a point where they're now sending out either full sized items or large samples. This is what I got in the month of July.

Many of you probably don't know this, but I have younger sister who has recently gotten into
makeup lipsticks. I've decided to interview her for this haul of hers. (I must note here that while my style tends to softer pinks and pastels, my sister's style tends to be more bold and adventurous - something I can admire from afar.) For example, she's trying to build up her lipstick collection so that she has "all the essential colors." What does this mean? She says, "Unlike, you, sis, I don't want the same color in every other brand." Ouch. She wants to expand her lipstick collection so that she has one distinctive color in the whole lipstick rainbow. That means one nude, one brown, one perfect red, one workable violet, one black, one blush, and one workable pink. I don't think I could ever do this. First off, I'd never wear black unless my Halloween costume needed it.

Once in a while, you see something that catches your eye and just screams for you to get a hold of it. One day, I was passing through Whole Foods and encountered this little gem. I put it in my cart and simply could not say no. And by the time I did my finalizing while waiting at the register, I still could not put this adorable tiny thing down. Here's my review of Love & Toast Lip Balm!

I have some pretty good news! For those of you that have been waiting for this compact to come out, it's finally out on Sephora's website. If you've been eyeing this, now is a great time to get it because it's probably going to sell out and end up on Ebay for $300.

Remember back when I was looking for that perfect pinky coral with the perfect formula? This was one of the things I picked up online because it was pretty much sold out everywhere. I remember hunting for this little thing like it was the last gold brick. Anyway, here's my review of Wired by Sephora! Hope you enjoy!

The search for the perfect lip balm has ended. It's a bittersweet feeling because you know you technically don't have an excuse to "trying out" other lip balms. But at the same time, it's wonderful that your dry lips can finally reply on something. This here, is my Holy Grail of lip balms: TBS Hemp Lip Treatment.

Tom Ford Lipsticks have been very highly reviewed around the blogosphere. This month, I've finally got my hands on one of them through one of my really good friends, BluChiffon. I'm so excited to be trying this lipstick because I've always wanted to get my hands on one. Anyway, here's the review.

I feel like I haven't done a tea review for quite some. That's because lately I've only been drinking one kind of tea. And that's this tea. After tasting it for the first time at the BF's house, I just knew that I had to have it. One week later and I have my own 4oz bag at my place. I decided to save you guys my last cup of this tea and do a review. Let me tell you why I'm so addicted to this tea.

Hope you had an awesome 4th of July! I just wanted to share with you some recent gifts & a small birthday haul I had recently. It's been a little while since I let myself buy some things. (Okay, well it felt like a while.) I've decided to post only makeup/ beauty products I've received. Anyway here are some of the things I got.

Recently, I was contacted by Efoxcity to introduce you guys to them. At first I was suspicious that it may have been spam or even a scam. But through online reviews, they appear to be a pretty legit site. So I'm happy to introduce you guys to them. Efoxcity is an online shopping mall featuring celebrity dresses and discount homecoming dresses. I've taken a look at their website and have to say that it looks very tempting. Their style is definitely appealing to the girly side of me. And their prices are similar to those of Forever 21.
