Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

This month Ipsy Glam Bag is Like.A.Boss. All products come inside a black and gold faux leather makeup bag that is aesthetically pleasing and practical. I’ve linked to each product in case you want more details. They aren’t affiliated links however I use Magic Links whenever possible. https://www.magiclinks.org/rewards/referral/jackiebrie/

…from someone who knows what they’re talking about and how to apply makeup correctly. As for myself, I love the palette, and I couldn’t believe what everyone else was saying about it. It was like seeing a bunch of 2-year-olds complain about what they didn’t understand! Even I am not a makeup artist, and from just looking at the palette I knew these were pigmented shadows that all you need to do is to pat that shit on your lid lightly and are ready to go. There is nothing wrong with the palette, but it is in the application and technique. I hope people will learn, finally, by watching this guy preach it. I think these shadows are beautiful fall colors and I definitely will wear them more. We all need some ABH in our life 🙂

The Daily Prompt word of the day is: Magnetic

Pürs fully charged mascara is AWFUL! I don’t understand the concept. Why would you need magnetic mascara? I mean unless it really is magnetic it would only make sense to use it with OneTwo magnetic lashes. Moreover, I don’t want a mascara to stick to my lashes that way.

Description from their website:

Opposites attract with this anti-aging mascara that has a “magnetic” polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance.

I wanted to see if there were any ingredients that were on the bad list but I wouldn’t know. It just seems to me that the technology is completely unnecessary.

When I applied this mascara, because my lashes are so short, it didn’t roll on smooth at all. It clumps and makes my lashes look like shit. I’m sorry, but it’s true. It also has’fall out’! If you can imagine. The more you swipe your eyelashes with this product, the more you will understand that the black stuff falls all over your face. I am not even kidding. It looks ugly, and I can’t believe they even sell this stuff to people. Suffice it to say, I did not like this mascara.

I received my bag with five beauty products in a Good Vibes Only pink glam bag. I will definitely be using all the makeup and skincare. I am all about anti-aging, and my skin is sensitive. I typically wear light shades and have cool toned skin.

 

I got a face cleanser from First Aid Beauty. The anti-aging property is rosemary oil and is made for sensitive skin. It’s ok even though it doesn’t have a lot of hydrating ingredients. I don’t love it because it doesn’t provide a lot of hydration or moisture which I prefer. It tightens and cleans.

Glamour Dolls Romantic Rose Blending Brush
This brush is soft, and it will blend in the creases of my lids without a scratch. I need a lot of makeup brushes, so I’m happy with Ipsy for sending me this brush!

AURORA Pro Color Corrector in Pistachio
This is a new brand I’ve never heard of before. I am eager to try new makeup products. I love the color pistachio, and I hope this will conceal and cover the redness.

Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
I have a hard time finding a blush that I like. I don’t think I will reach for this very often as I wasn’t that impressed with the way it looked on my skin.

TheBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow
I have the Kuwakaribisha light eye shadow, and you can’t go wrong with that. It works great and looks good in the inner corners of my eye and under the browbone! It feels smooth, silky and moist.

2006-07-21 08.28.38I really like StylPro™ for cleaning my brushes. It costs $64.99 CAD. I also bought a carrying /storage case for $18.99 CAD because I like to be organized. The liquid cleaning solution is a super formula that works amazingly but you can’t get it in Canada yet (wah), only the single packets are available, and that really sucks.

2006-07-21 08.29.12

I personally think the StylPro is really handy and easy to use. You only need to fill the bowl with hot water and a drop or two of your favorite brush cleaner and you are set to have a little fun. The rubber tube collars come in different sizes to fit most brushes except of course the new oval brushes.

What is an oval brush?

It isn’t really a problem if they don’t fit anyway because you can revert to cleaning your brushes by hand. Having a sigma brush cleaning mat helps too. So it isn’t a big deal.
StylPro™ does say to rinse your brushes in water afterward if you are concerned about leftover soap on your brushes. I think the centrifugal force gets rid of water and cleaning solution though. The battery operated device cleans your brush in seconds. 20 seconds in the water and 10 to dry. It is a powerful tool and I think it’s fantastic.

This video is fascinating and is so satisfying

Update on the damaged eyeshadow:

My new shadow palette in the shade (comfort zone) came today! They sent me a new one free of charge and I didn’t have to return the broken and damaged one. I snapped a pic even though you can’t see how beautiful the colors truly are. I am obsessed with this palette and I am so happy and thrilled to have gotten a new one sent to me that isn’t damaged. Yay! Thank you Wet’n’Wild!

My Wet’n’Wild Haul came today!
2006-07-20 23.11.30

Unicorn Highlighting Brush $4.99
Ultimate Brow Highlighter $4.99
Color Icon Eyeshadow in the shade “comfort zone” $4.99
MegaSlim Skinny Mascara $4.99
Mega highlighting powder in blossom glow $4.99

Now for the bad news.

The one product that I really wanted was damaged in the shipping and got all over everything! I am not crying over the price cause it was affordable but in the shipping. How could they? You disappoint me Wet n wild!
2006-07-20 23.10.30

I bought the “once beautiful” eyeshadow thinking it would teach me how to apply color on my eyelids. It shows exactly where to apply the color but now it’s just a mess. You are supposed to see what color to apply on the eyelid, the brow bone or the crease. At first, I’m like “Oh no no no. I’m going to have to return this” but I simply changed my attitude and wiped everything off. I really don’t know if Wet’n’Wild would reimburse me a free palette even though it is their fault, but still. They need to package the products more carefully in bubble wrap. I wonder if this has happened to anyone else? It didn’t cost much (except for the shipping) I don’t want it happening again. What do you think I should do? Should I even tell the company in an email? Anyway, so I called them. The only way to contact them is by clicking the contact us link at the bottom of their website. They are experiencing unusual volumes of calls apparently. How many times have I heard that?!! What? Is everyone having the same problem as me or something?
I’m excited and I can’t wait to play with my new makeup. The highlighter looks brilliant. I love the Unicorn brush!

I love Blistex medicated lip ointment because it soothes and cools dry cracked lips. Blistex medicated lip ointment is effective in hydrating and repairing broken and parched skin due to dryness in weather. You can get it at your local drugstore and yes I will purchase it again if needed

I use Blistex as a lip moisturizer on a regular basis because I live in a very dry climate where our hair, lips, and skin suffers the damage of constant dry weather. I love Blistex because for one, it is healing and two, it moisturizes and protects your lips. I need extra care and hydration so that is why I use Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment.
