October Nail Polish Colours

October was kinda a lazy month for nail painting.

LA Colors Color Craze in Power Outage - Fuschia Metallic - this wasn't bad for a cheap brand

Cuccio Colour in Tel-Aviv About It! - nude cream - I really hate Cuccio Colour's formulation.

LA Splash in Blowfish - hot pink cream - this polish is super thick. I'm not sure if that's how it's suppose to be or it's going bad already.

OPI in My Favorite Ornament - Silver Glitter - I love this polish. Glitter is just so damn hard to get off!

Deborah Lippmann in Cleopatra in New York - Black with Gold Glitter - I wasn't impressed with this polish. 

Models Own in Red Sea - Sheer Red with Red Holographic Glitter - I wasn't impressed with this polish either.

Topbox - October 2014

This is my last TopBox. I've cancelled. It just wasn't worth it and I've found the product brand have gone down hill.

They did have the addon again this month. Since I was having great luck with it, I did it again.

A cream blush from Teeez in Beach Glow Brown. The colour is pretty enough and I don't have many cream blushes. This blush goes for about $40, but I can't seem to find out where it's sold in Canada.

Included in this months TopBox:
  • Indigena Skincare Blueberry Bliss Sugar Scrub - sample size 15mL $4.50 - full size 200mL $60
  • The Balm Cosmetics How 'Bout Them Apples? Lip and Cheek Cream Palette (sample in Pie) - sample size 0.02oz $0.91 - full size (palette) 0.7oz $32
  • Prestige Cosmetics Magic Pen Lip Liner - sample size 0.01oz - full size 0.01oz $8.99
  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Synchronized Complex II - sample size 5mL $25 - full size 15mL $75
Everything will go into the use up pile except for the full size blush. That will go into storage for when I get rid of all my sample sizes.

ipsy - October 2014

It's ipsy time again! I'm still loving this subscription. This month's bag is teal. Not a colour I have a lot of, but it will work well if I'm wearing all black, let's say.

Included in this month's bag:
  • Jesse's Girl Mineralized Baked Shadow Powder in Graphite Frost - sample size 2g - full size 2g $3.99
  • Figs & Rouge Mango & Mandarin Shea Butter Hand Cream - sample size 20mL - full size 20mL 3.95 GBP (approx. 6.99 CAD)
  • Epice Purifying Exfoliant - sample size 1oz. $9.70 (approx.) - full size 3.3oz $32.00
  • Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure - sample size 0.03oz $2.78 (approx.) - full size 0.14oz $13.00
  • Ecru Acacia Protein BB Cream - sample size 1oz. x2 - full size 1oz. $12.00 (x2 $24.00)
Retail value of October's bag: $47.46 ($17.19 more than last month)

The eyeshadow isn't very pigmented as it's sheer, so it's going to my mom, who likes that. The gloss is going right into my purse as it's a mini and I'll probably use it up faster that way. The rest will go into the use-up pile.

First Impressions - Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 Trio

BzzAgent Campaign - Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 Trio

So I started BzzAgent and this was the first campaign I got. FULL SIZE PRODUCTS! I was stunned. I was expecting minis at most. Of course, I'm a beauty product hoarder and really didn't need anymore hair products ( I have 4 sets open in my shower atm) so to have to try out more kinda sucked for me. I took a couple of sets out and gave this a go.

The shampoo was nice. This set has a okay scent. It's not bad, but it's not my favourite. It cleaned my 3 day hair just as well as my clarifying shampoo does. I was surprised by this actually. 

The conditioner was kinda meh. It's your basic conditioner really. It didn't do anything special for me. I still had to put my It's a 10 in to detangle. (Yay for fine hair.)

The BB Creme also was meh. I have lots of leave in products similar and really I prefer oils since my hair is super dry 'cause I get it dyed. 

My Mum LOVES this trio. She tried it once and was going on and on about how soft her hair was. I may just give it to her. 

Overall: Would I buy it? Maybe if it was on sale. I did get some coupons with it as well. I'll probably just give them to Mum so she can use them.
