January Humble Beauty Opinion! #62

Last Saturday of the month = #HumbleBeautyOpinion!
 My monthly subscriptions, reviews, wish lists, and empties! 
New Year, same HBO! 

After Christmas I decided to finally get the beautyblender defender on Ulta,
I was a little nervous because the reviews are mixed on this,
I was surprised at how large it is... really fits like 2 beauty blenders, 
but I think it is okay, good design 
but I do wish it was smaller to be more travel friendly.
{FYI the makeup sponges I use/like: original beautyblender, Real Techniques, and Morphe}

Last month I was complaining in my Humble Beauty Post that my Ipsy bag never arrived...
So I contacted them and they sent me a new one and then the first week of January, 
TWO December bags arrived. 

So confused but at least I got the two items I really wanted last month: 
Nomad Cosmetics "Around-The-World Light Infusion Holographic Illuminator
 in Ko Phablets Ngan Moonlight" 
& INMO "Frozen Lipstick in Runway Red" 
& now have a back up which is good because I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK!

& then this month's January Ipsy bag arrived:
it is okay, I love the Fluide gloss, and the OUAI leave in conditioner, 
the polish is pretty nice and I have worn it a few times, 
I have yet to try the foundation but am excited to!

This month's Sephora Play was a pretty good one too, I like the Sunday Riley treatment and the belif sleeping mask, could always use a beauty blender cleaner and have yet to use the other products, the Bite Beauty lipstick is a duplicate from last year's birthday gift which is lame but I passed it on to my sister, it is a great color.

 Only a little monthly makeup wishlist this month, 
I have been trying to use what I already own and not be sucked into to more makeup.

Their eyeshadow are some of my favorite! 

I also love this duo chrome polish that Sally_hansen showed off in a sponsored Instagram post

Trendmood1 on Instagram shared Colourpop's "She's A Mystery" bags 
and I love the leopard packaging!
 This is such a good way to try a variety of products! 
I think it is sold out but I will be on the lookout for the next! 

This month's empties- 
what I used up, loved, hated  & all my humble opinions in between:
bath: Attitude Shampoo- I was not a huge fan of this, it didn't lather a lot and left my hair a little dry like hay | Dr. Bronner's "Pure Castile Bar Soap" x 2- love this soap! | boscia "Exfoliating Peel Gel"- I am not a huge fan of these types of products because I can never tell if they are actually working or if the product itself is just balling up... | up & up- eye makeup remover- I need a new one STAT! This is a good basic eye makeup remover and with the accidental water proof mascara purchase, it has become a necessity | P.F. Candle Co- I got these on Amazon after seeing them recommended by Carli Bybel on Youtube, they are really nice and I think we may have almost used up both packs already! | Revlon Colorsilk hair dye in "Intense Red"- a favorite! I have been using this color for a couple of months now | equate "Cotton Swabs"- basic and useful | equate "Flushable Cleansing Cloths"- I was not a fan of these something about the texture that was too abrasive | SNP Rabbit face mask- got this as a gift and it was a particularly creepy one... see below

These animal masks are always a little creepy, 
but this bunny mouth one is quite strange...

beauty: TIGI Glow Blush in "Haute"- this was a favorite blush! Sad that is is done, will have to repurchase | Luna by Luna- Translucent powder- a nice basic powder not sure how I feel about a baked powder I think I prefer loose | Smashbox "Photo Finish"- a nice primer, I enjoyed this but I think I prefer the benefit "Porefessional" | Elf foundation- I thought this was the old BB Cream that I used to love from them but it was thicker and I did not enjoy this as much | Context Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream- this was a nice eye cream and lasted FOREVER! | Lancer "The Method Nourish"- I liked this cream although there was something about the scent that wasn't my favorite but I LOVED the polish step in this line (got it from Influenster to try out) | Maybelline Age Rewind in "Brightner"- this is a must in my makeup routine! Immediately had to repurchase! Touch In Sol "Metallist Liquid Foil & Glitter"- I tried this out this week and it was terrible, so sheer, tacky and not cute. Do not recommend. | Loreal "Voluminous Lash Paradise"- I loved this mascara. I bought it in Penn Station before work one day because I forgot to put on mascara. I had a full teal blue smokey eye with no mascara... it was a life saver and became a favorite. The hype is real with this one. Although I wish I did not get the waterproof one because it was a pain to take off.

Scents: Rustic Lakehouse from Walmart- I love this scent and these are so cheap | Mainstays "Pumpkin Spice"- a little too sweet but was nice | Better Homes & Gardens "Farm Apple Pumpkin" scented wax cubes- Charlie did not like these, they were very sweet
