Beauty Review: Ipsy Glam Bag August 2013

*Referral link is included in post.

Wow, I must applaud Ipsy for busting their humps to have these beautiful Glam Bags delivered to us subscribers so quickly this month! I received my "Christmas present" two days early than last month!

Even though I applaud Ipsy for trying to speed up their service to meet their high demand, I am disappointed in the QC (quality control) of them packing their bags. This is my forth Glam Bag and here's my first blooper from Ipsy:

I am suppose to have gotten five beauty items and was so excited when I opened my bag, but only to find that I was short of a product. I contacted Ipsy right after I discovered this and so I hope to hear from them soon. I will definitely have to review how their customer service is... (*dun dun dun*) *Please see my updates below!

Beauty Review: Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tint Blush

Today I'm going to share with you my thoughts on this cute little liquid tint blush I snagged on clearance from Target a while back! 

I am aware that this blush has been out for quite some time now (since 2009?) but please don't judge me! I can't afford to buy new lines every time they just hit the shelves lol! I write my beauty reviews on items I just recently purchased and have tried out.

This blush is so sheer and pretty. I think that this is the perfect product to use for a natural look!

Thursday, August 8, 2013 Haul

Today I just wanted to share with you an order I placed for the very first time on Dermstore. I was very impressed with the quality of their service. Shipping was super fast (but my local post office was lagging and so I received my order a day late). I placed my order on Friday and it was suppose to be delivered on Monday (but because of my local post office) I didn't receive it til Tuesday.

This Week's Nails 8/5/13

I've been MIA these past few days. My little boy had fallen ill (doctor said he has croupe) and I've been super busy taking care of him and giving him all the TLC he needs. He's been on antibiotics and is getting better now =)

I just finished polishing my nails for this week so here it is! It's been a while since I've done any dotting or put any glitter to jazz up my nails so I'm pretty happy to be able to have some time to do this. (YES I am STILL coral color obsessed lol!)

Essie "Tart Deco", Wet n Wild "French White Creme", and Pure Ice "Spit Fire"

I hope you all had a great weekend and will have a superb week ahead!
