March ipsy GlamBag Review 6/6

Gotta Put On My Face

I finally used the tarte frxxxtion stick. This stick was the free item I got with points. It’s a small purple tube with a gold cover and the product inside is black. It is supposed to exfoliating and the product looks very smooth and shiny before its first use so I was rather skeptical of this. The directions for use are to dampen your face then use the stick in little circles and wash off, or keep on as a mask for 10 minutes. Because I hate washing my face over the sink (water and product gets everywhere) I used it in the shower. I wasn’t sure if this would wash it away too much but I got it free so I decided to go for it anyways. I wet my face and started the circles on my forehead and boy was I surprised. Though you couldn’t see them, there…

March ipsy GlamBag Review 5/6

Gotta Put On My Face

In a previous GlamBag, I had gotten another Marc Anthony hair conditioner. This one looked a lot like the one I received in my March bag- vibrant colors, travel-sized bottle. The formula was thicker and felt more like a deep conditioner than a normal conditioner and I was right. My hair felt great after using it. This one however, the Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment, was not impressive. The product itself is rather thin for a deep conditioner and after my hair dried after using this product, it felt no softer and actually felt a little bit rougher or like there was residue on my hair. I’ve used it a few times since my first impression (because it is a conditioner so I’m going to use it) and every other time, it still has not impressed me. My hair has…

Facial Hair

Gotta Put On My Face

When I say facial hair, you probably immediately think mustaches and beards. No one thinks about eyebrows. Eyebrows are much more important than people think they are. Look up “celebrities without eyebrows” on Google if you don’t believe me. It’s weird.

Eyebrows are super important to the architecture of your face. They frame it and if you have too little or too much, things start to look weird. I, like many my age, got into the bad habit of overplucking in my youth. Because of this, as I have said before, a lot of what other people see of my eyebrows is not actually my eyebrows. It is make-up. In the past, I’ve tried to grow them out again but have always gotten fed up and started plucking again before anything could grow back where I needed it. The hair grew in places I didn’t want it so I’d take…

Gotta Put On My Face

Here’s part two to the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara vs. IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara. On Saturday, I participated in Relay for Life. My team was WUTT: Spartan Radio and our theme was the Loch Ness Monster. None of that is relevant. I did put on some mascara on Saturday however. Here’s what it looked like:


I didn’t put on any other eye make-up.

This morning, I got up late and had to shower, and was also feeling particularly lazy so I chose to also just put on mascara. Here’s that:


I don’t know about you, but all three times, I have felt that the IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara has done better than the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. It seems to go on better, separate better, and I think it comes off easier as well. For the travel sized IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara, which is the size…

Flashy Lashes

Gotta Put On My Face

It may not seem like it, but eyelashes are very important to your make-up routine. When I am too lazy to put on all of my make-up, I will usually go with eyebrows and eyelashes because I feel like I still look more put-together with just those two elements than with nothing. That said, finding a mascara that really works for you and does what you want with your lashes can be hard. Mine are especially difficult because I have never figured out how to properly curl them with an eyelash curler and even when it seems like I have, they don’t seem to want to cooperate anyways. This means I need to find a mascara that lengthens, volumizes, and curls all at the same time.

Something that you may hear is that the mascara formula doesn’t matter, it is all about the wand. I have found that this is…

YouTube Make-Up Challenges/Tags

Gotta Put On My Face

Because I love make-up and YouTube as separate entities, I love them together twice as much. It’s just math. Out there in the World Wide Web, there are multitudes of famous and trying-to-be-famous YouTubers doing different challenge and tag videos because, if you do one and it goes viral, you’re basically golden. That’s how these things work. That said, some of my favorite videos to have come out of these challenges and tags are below.

In no particular order:

1.Moq Does My Makeup – Jenna Marbles

As you can probably guess, my favorite tag to come out of these has been the “[Partner] Does My Voiceover.” If you watch any of these, you will see why. Many guys are clueless as to…

I’m a Model

Gotta Put On My Face

IMG_0614IMG_0615Today at 5 p.m. I’m going to be modeling for the Career Services fashion show on campus. I’m rather nervous about this because I’m awkward but I’m excited about it because I get to wear a really cute outfit from Buckle. I thought that I was going to be in something super business-y but instead, they put me in the “non-conformist” group which means I’m wearing a cute floral dress and an army green vest with black booties and a choker necklace.

I tried to make my eyeshadow match my dress a bit, using reds and pinks which are some of the accent colors on the dress. I also wanted to show off my wings because I did them pretty well today. I am also wearing a full face of make-up today, foundation, highlighter and all, including the setting spray. I remembered this time. AND my hair is also curled…
