Friday favorites #98

Hello Friday you beautiful thing! Whew! I am so happy it’s finally Friday. I’m ready for the weekend. {Even if we do lose an hour of sleep} 😩I had a really busy week, which is great but I’m ready for a slow down AND…tomorrow our girl comes home. Bless her heart. She’s been sickly this week with what has presented as possibly kidney stones?  She hasn’t felt well at all and after turning to our friends Google and WebMD that’s the self diagnosis we came up with. It never got bad enough to go to the doctor, but was a nagging feeling. I think she was finally feeling a little relief yesterday. Anyway, I’ll be happy to have her home so if it continues we can see our doctor here. Having a sick “baby” two time zones away is no joke y’all.

I think we can call this the Friday Favorites that almost didn’t happen. I had bible study yesterday and then company for dinner which meant no time to blog, so this morning I’m bringing you a short and sweet post.

I’ve been meaning to share my first ipsy bag with y’all for weeks and now my second one is already on its way.

I tried the Sephora Play box for a couple of months (you can read about that here and here) and liked it okay but chose to stop receiving it. I decided to give ipsy Glam Bag a try and so far, so good.

This month I received 5 products which are all good, but here’s how I’d rate them:

1 item ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

1 item ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

1 item⭐️⭐️⭐️

2 items⭐️⭐️

Here’s what came in my “bag”

(note: the candle is just a prop😉, I only wish it came with the bag. That would be awh-sum)

So honestly, I could care less about the little “bags” that come each month, but they’re part of it, so okay.

So let’s start with the ⭐️⭐️items.

The Pacifica Eye shadow and the Luna highlighter were ⭐️⭐️. Not because I dislike them or there is anything wrong with them. The eye shadow is made by a company that is 100% vegan and cruelty free, so if you are a fan of that you might want to check them out. The eyeshadow itself is good, (a little extra powdery) but since I don’t wear a lot of eye shadow, I was just eehhhh. I am liking playing around with the lavender shades since I have never worn them and that color is big for spring.

The Luna highlighter is nice, but since I have a highlighter I love it wasn’t as exciting. It will be good for throwing in my purse though.

Now for the  ⭐️⭐️⭐️product.

I gave the Klorane Dry Shampoo 3 ⭐️’s. I’m currently on the hunt for a good dry shampoo so I was really happy to try this. Here’s the thing about dry shampoo’s, I find it hard to figure out if they are working. I don’t have oily hair so that’s not an issue. I’m more interested in just freshening up the roots and making sure my hair isn’t stinky from working out. Up until the last couple of months I washed my hair pretty much every.single.day. I’m trying to cut back and give it a break and I’ve gone down to 2 or 3 washes a week. It’s also a huge time saver because I have a TON of hair.

Next I intend to try the Living Proof dry shampoo that everyone seems to love.

So here are this months favorites.

The liquid lipstick received 𝟒 – ⭐️’s.

I wasn’t at all familiar with the brand OFRA and honestly when I looked at the color I thought, “nope”. But I was pleasantly surprised and have been wearing it almost every day. It’s a great fall/winter color and lasts almost all day. It goes on darker than it appears in the picture.

And the big winner receiving ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Bye Bye under eye by it Cosmetics. First, I’ve been wanting to try something from it and second, this stuff is great! It’s a waterproof concealer, which I’d never even heard of. It’s thick (almost tacky feeling) and has high coverage. I don’t really need that much correction, but I just love the way the stuff goes on and seems to stay. I will tell you the first time I used it I wasn’t sure about it because it’s soooo thick and a little goes a long way, but it has totally won me over. I also like to use a concealer on my lips before applying lipstick to neutralize my lip color which seems to be wacky…lol. If I just apply a lipstick right on my lips with no primer the color is gosh awful.

Okay y’all, there you have it. The good, the bad and the ugly only mostly good. HA!
