IPSY Pretty in Paradise

  Finally got off the Ipsy waiting list and got my bag today. I signed up in December last year and I have no idea why it took so long, possible cause it is a exceptional deal  ($10 a month and free shipping ) that everyone wants it. Mascara is almost $10.  You get four to five products in a cute little bag based on your likes.( a small questionnaire upon signing up) I can not wait to try this. They have ways to earn extra makeup and run specials for members only. Updates on reviews of these products will be posted on this post So be sure to check back.
     Here's what I received:  
Be a Bomshell Mascara .25oz
OFRA eyebrow pencil
Marc Anthony Dream Wave Spray 1.52oz
NYX butter gloss  .27oz
REALTREE eau de parfum spray

                 This was an awesome Ipsy bag month. They completely match me with the products I would LOVE, which was a concern of mine. I will start with the Be a Bomshell mascara, I noticed  that it was a light in texture and did not clump up at all. It extended my eyelashes dramatically without brushing them or apply a eyelashes curler. This was a great time saving feature and a feature I would pay extra for. Next was a eyebrow pencil by OFRA. I loved this also. The color match perfectly and looked natural. I just tried the Marc Anthony beach wave spray today. The smell was light and soon disappeared upon finishing spraying. I have some wave to my hair in hotter weather, I assumed that these would enhance it and tame some of the frizz. Unfortunately, it did not work for me. But I did like how it did not leaving my hair sticky or stiff. Now to my favorite product out of the five I received, NYX butter gloss. This was very smooth on my lips, like silk. It had a hint of pink and did not dry out my lips. The gloss was not to shiny, just enough to give a subtle glow. Lastly, was the REALTREE eau de parfum spray. I really like that it was compact and that the bottle was not breakable were I can put it in my purse. The smell to me was crisp and clean. It is definitely a spray for this time of the year. Not to powerful. I could still smell it on me at the end of the day. So it has great long lasting effect. This was a great combination of products and great for this time of year. I am completely happy with my bag and encourage all to join Ipsy. (link available above)

     The season is gradually creeping up fast and those family get togethers are upon us. What to wear? What to wear? Natural we want to look our best but if you are anything like me, the focus is really on the kiddos. But, why spend a lot when they just out grow them fast?  Am I right? Which lead me to Crazy 8.

Limelight Review

As the majority of my readers know, I am friends with many amazing direct sellers.  From Tupperware to bags, to natural products, to self-defense, the direct seller's community is rapidly growing in many areas of needs. When I heard there was another makeup company, I was excited to see what would set them apart from the rest.
Upon looking at the site, I was intrigued and disappointed. I loved the website and their colors (truly perked my interest), but the prices were not budget friendly for me. Let's face it, I always feel guilty about spending money on me but if it's cheaper I feel less guilty. Make sense?  I have tested and reviewed many products over the years and naturally, I am always kinda skeptical since so many claim results but far and few provide them. If they do they take forever to show and by then I have lost interest.

Let me back up a tad and tell you about what lead me to my discovery. If you have ever dealt with someone in direct sells or do that line of wor…

Where to get freebies? Freebie Sites and their Brief breakdowns

Freebie Sites and their breakdown
  I often get people asking where do I get my freebies and how to do these sites work. I thought why not give those a guide to go by. I went through countless sites and being spammed before I came up with a legit list and one that does NOT spam you and that you actually get what they say.    I enjoy helping others and hope you all get lots of good freebies.
