Ipsy Time! July: Hot Summer Nights

These Hot Summer Nights are eating me up on electric bills, but Ipsy is $10 a month (including shipping) so I kept my sub going.  I know this post is super late, but I’ve been reorganizing my publications with the launch of my Patreon project.  I debated whether or not to post this one, since…

IPSY Time! June: Rebel Rebel!

I absolutely could NOT stay away!  I mean $10 is a great deal for what you get.  What lured me back to ipsy this month was a promise of Urban Decay shadow (or theBalm, but I like them too).  Also, this bag is too damn cute!  New favorite bag, 5 out of 5.  Let’s take…

Ipsy Time! September: Face Fashion

I’m so glad this bag is more bronze in person.  It looked gold in all the pictures, but it’s actually more peachy.  It’s longer than the standard bags, so it’s great for brushes.  The interior is an apricot fabric and it’s a solid design.  5 out of 5.
