A Hiatus

Hi friends. I'm sure yinz have noticed that I haven't been posting quite as much as usual - but there's a reason. I'm leaving for Sydney tomorrow, and between packing, preparing, and seeing friends before I go, I just haven't had the time or focus to write.

I'll be in Australia from September 3 to November 10, visiting my fiance, Dean. I have a lot of fun stuff planned for my trip. I'll be attending my second IMATS on September 20. We also have a weekend trip to Katoomba planned. I'm going to do my best to keep a regular blogging schedule, resuming on September 8th (hopefully I'll be over my jetlag). On top of my regular reviews, I'll be bringing you posts about my adventures in Sydney.
As always, feel free to message me on Tumblr or tweet me during my hiatus!

Out with the Old - August 2014

 Do you ever have one of those months where you only finish a few products...and then suddenly in the last few days you finish EVERYTHING? That's what happened to me this month. Asterisks denote products I'll be repurchasing, or already had a backup of. For more info on each product, click the name to see the full review.

New IpsyPoints Reward - Bella Pierre Bronzer and Lip&Cheek Stain


Ipsy just added a new 1000 Point Reward - a duo of deluxe sized Bella Pierre products. This set contains a Lip and Cheek stain in "Pink" and a Mineral Bronzer in the shade "Peony". This set has a retail value of $22, a good deal for 1000 points, especially since these are generously sized delxue samples. As usual, there's only a limited number available, and I will update the post when they're sold out.
