    Foundation questions

    I would try the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide. It performs well on oily skin and the people I have recommended this to say they've noticed less acne since switching. If you are looking for a cheaper option I would try the Neutrogena Shine Control Liquid Makeup. Both of these foundations contain rice which can help to control oil.

    Eyebrows

    I'm a natural ginger with blonde brows. My hair is more of a bright copper color so I need to add a bit of a reddish tint to my brows. If you are closer to blonde I would go with taupe.I would highly recommend Just For Redheads. They have the best color options for us. I use the Sedona Travel Size Brush-A-Brow in Ginger Angel. Their Brow Stick in Gingergold may work better for you. They also give free color consultations! http://www.justforredheads.com/

    I don't like the bag design. The colors are pretty, but putting silly phrases on them ruins it for me (I don't like anything like that). My Bag Eyeko Black Magic Mascara Deluxe- I've been wanting to try this Crown Brush Medium Face Contour Brush- I could use a better brush for contouring Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo- I always love masks (and fruit) Steve Laurant Precision Tip Liner in Black- Requested this because I use a lot of liner Yadah Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in Light Beige- Excited for this because I live for BB creams but I'm concerned about the color being too dark Mom's Bag First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay- Requested since this is her HG face wash Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo- These are great colors theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow- If the color she gets isn't super sparkly it'll be good Firma Beauty Angled Contour Brush- Always good to have more brushes Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner- She won't use this so it's mine With the exception of the liquid liner in her bag it looks like a good month. A little irritated I didn't get any sheet masks. I always rate them highly and there are three different options this month. That being said I'm not unhappy with my yoghurt masks. I'm still waiting for some decent things to redeem some points for. I preferred the mad dash for inexpensive good items to expensive shampoo and conditioner packets that sit there forever.

    Hacked my bags because I'm impatient. My Bag -TONYMOLY I'm Real Sheet Masks in Green Tea and Lotus: I requested these because my mask stash is dwindling. I do at least one a week. -Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: I've sampled this mascara before, and it's never made me want to buy the full size, but I need mascara. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Travel Size in Black: I've also tried this before, but I need it. I love eyeliner pens, but they dry up fast. I just requested liner for next months ipsy bag as well. Hanalei Lip Treatment in Rose: My mom has this but I think hers is clear. It's really moisturizing. mPrincess Pressed Eyeshadow in Biscuit: I've been really lazy with shadow lately. Generally just a swipe of pink or gold across my lid. I think this will also be good for minimal makeup days. Mom's Bag -mPrincess Pressed Eyeshadow in Biscuit: I don't know how she'll feel about the sheen to it, but the color should be fine. -Beau Gachis Illuminator Brush: She doesn't normally use a brush for concealing, and she doesn't use highlighter, but I'm sure she can find some use for it. -tarte cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel: She usually likes cleansers. -Ciate London Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner in Black: I think Ciate products are generally good quality. I'm sure she would prefer brown though. -Jersey Shore Cosmetics Mandarin Green Orange & Ginger Mongongo Lip Conditioner: Jersey Shore makes amazing lip balms! I'm a little sad at the lack of color in my bag. I always want blush and lipstick. I really don't need it though.

    I really like the bag! Honestly I'm more of a Hello Kitty person but Gudetama is cute too. I hope they do more bags like this. I think I want the Nyx Blush. My second pick would be the mascara. Too Faced mascara isn't my favorite but it's usable. I requested the TONYMOLY Sheet Masks for this month.

    Sephora Play Box May 2017 *Spoilers*

    I think that person has posted false spoilers month after month. I may be wrong but I think it's the same person. It's always a bad sign when someone disables the comments on their video in my opinion.

    May 2017 Ipsy *Spoilers*

    For starters I love the bag! I also used the cheat from previous months to see my bags early again. Mom's Bag pur~lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30- She'll probably like this. I kind of want to try it but they never send me BB cream. Though honestly that probably has to do with me being so fair skinned. Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin- This is probably going to be a huge nope. She doesn't like anything sparkly and she never highlights. It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara- She requested this. I know many people hate to see mascara but it's something the both of us always need (blonde eyelashes). Hopefully it's decent. The more expensive mascaras have not been impressing me as of late. Cailyn Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable- This is supposed to be a cinnamon nude which sounds very pretty. I think she will like this but not sure how much use it will get. She uses lip gloss more. Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave In Conditioning Spray- Her hair is really dry so this sounds like a winner. My Bag Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin- I've been wanting a decent powder highlighter with some shimmer. It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara- Requested Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave In Conditioning Spray- I've liked the other Briogeo products I've tried and I like conditioning sprays. Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Surfer Girl- All the polish will be mine! Cake Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key- I really wanted to try this so I'm very happy! I'm a sucker for cute packaging as well! Overall I wouldn't have minded the eyeliner pen but I'm very pleased. I'm also pleasantly surprised I have no skincare in my bag. I'm overly picky about it so I hate receiving it. Translation: Everything burns my ginger face.

    @@whispy11 I got that same hair oil before. I thought it was pretty good because the consistency was thick. That Elizabeth Mott sample looks like it's going to be super tiny like the bronzer from the February bag. Do you use gel pencils on your waterline? I was always under the impression that those aren't really for that. I just use mine on the upper and lower lash line.

    IPSY April 2017 Spoilers

    For those of you wondering the tutorial to let you see your bag early does work again this month! I tried it last night and it didn't work (maybe I did something wrong). I'm thinking it starts working whenever it gives you a date to come back and see your items but I could be wrong. http://imgur.com/a/ryDEl Mom's Bag OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush- Blush is good I just hope this peach isn't really orange or she won't touch it. H20+ Beauty Keep It Fresh Cleanser- Not sure why she got this it's for dry to normal skin and she's oily. I think you can mark that in the ipsy quiz or maybe you just mark your skin concerns. theBalm Cosmetics Betty-Lou Manizer- I don't think she'll like this because of the shimmer. She also probably won't want to fool with it because it's so tiny. Adese New York Cupuacu Butter Lip Balm- Lip balms are always winners. Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush- The Lisa Frank theme will not impress her but I think she'll like the brush. My Bag defy & Inspire Wear Resistant Nail Lacquer in Paradise Island- The mint polish is mine! Yay! (It is mint right) Ciate London Mini Bamboo Bronzer- I've liked everything from Ciate they have sent me so I'm happy with this. I hope I get the lighter shade though. I prefer makeup that is considered neutral instead of warm or cool toned. Luseta Beauty Volume Reviving Dry Shampoo in Potpourri- Don't you start this ipsy. I don't want dry shampoo. I hate everything about this. The scent is even floral. Ofra Cosmetics Peach Blush- I love peach blush and was actually thinking of buying one. Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush- I was Lisa Frank everything as a kid so I like it for the nostalgia alone. I've yet to find a blush brush I like better than my Real Techniques so this will likely get used for something else. So I haven't seen a list of all the possible items but I'm bummed neither of us got a Colourpop liner. I should have emailed them but decided to chance it for some stupid reason. I was also kind of hoping for the Skinfix cleanser because I've been wanting to try it for months. The only thing I really hate is the dry shampoo.

    Sephora Play March 2017 *Spoilers*

    I got #444 which seems to be the highest value. Honestly if I were to pick I would have went with #451 despite it having the second lowest value. I wish they would stop sending Glamglow as well. I always seem to get it in subscription boxes and have not found one item by them that I like. Most of their products cause me to breakout, burn my skin, and are over priced. Not to mention the product featured this month had a very overwhelming scent to it that made me sick. The Living Proof item may be alright but I haven't tried it yet because I know it will be smelly. I was kind of interested in the Josie Maran but there's nothing really to it. The pot was half filled and I can get the same look by just dabbing on a little extra moisturizer. The Benefit highlighter was also a bust because I have multiples I haven't used stashed away. The Bobbi Brown eye shadow was the only thing I will really use. I have a thing for pink eye shadow. I obviously have no use for the perfume either. I wish they would send me some Drunk Elephant products but they never do. I actually really like that brand and would be willing to pay the price tag if I could just sample some more of their stuff first. I at least got the Bite Beauty stick last month that I'd been dying to try. Overall looking at past boxes I seem to get one or maybe two products out of each box that I'll use. I feel like I may just be better off buying the items that I want from Sephora.

    IPSY March 2017 *Spoilers*

    Mom's bag and mine are very similar this month. DLS Blush Kitty Pink- I like anything to do with a kitty! The name alone wins me over. This is a blush I think both of us will like. Skone Brush- we can never have too many brushes. I only glanced but I think this is an eye shadow brush. Tarte Matte Lip Paint- I requested these for both of us in different colors on that survey thing that was posted on MSA. I'm wondering if we'll actually get the requested colors since they put up that "invite only banner" on it. I kind of wish I had waited though in hopes of getting the Burt's Bees Lipstick. My Bag Mudmasky- This stuff is expensive! I like that it is supposed to balance your skin's pH. Ouai Treatment Mask- I received this from Sephora Play before. It's alright but it's kind of smelly and it doesn't have much product in it. I believe it's supposed to be a one time use but I've gotten several with my medium length hair. The consistency is thin so it's hard to tell where you put the product. Mom's Bag Neogen Mild Cleanser- Coconut is her thing so this will hopefully be good. Marc Anthony Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil- I think this is the hair treatment but I didn't really look. She has super dry hair so this is great but I don't think she likes the smell of jasmine.

    IPSY February 2017 **Spoilers**

    Ipsy bags are live! Mom's Bag Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in You're Toast- I don't know how she'll feel about it being loose powder but the shade is definitely for her. Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish- This will be going into our giant polish collection that we share. Either color is fine but I'm hoping for the brown since we don't have anything like it. VENeffect Skin Car Anti-Aging Lip Treatment- This product seems pretty interesting. It's supposed to plump, moisturize, and prevent your lipstick from bleeding. If it really does all those things it may be worthy of the $85 price tag. BellaPierre Cosmetics Volumelash Waterproof Mascara- She's always happy for mascara but she doesn't usually wear waterproof. Luxie Beauty Blush Brush- This is the item I requested for her. We always need/want brushes. My Bag Luxie Beauty Blush Brush- I requested this for myself as well. Briogeo Blow Dy Creme- I always need hair products. I like that this is supposed to have a fruity scent which is what I'm drawn to. I don't use heat tools that much though so I'll probably save it for when I do. Nyx Butter Lipstick- I really want the Ripe Berry so I'll surely get Lifeguard. I'm drowning in red lipstick over here. Elizabeth Mott Matte Bronzer- This doesn't look bad. I like that it's matte. Japonesque Brush Cleanser- Seeing as I have none this is good. I really like my mom's bag. Mine is full of usable items that I need but nothing I'm super hyped about. I would have liked to of tried that Juice Beauty cream blush. I'm actually surprised neither of us got it. The other thing I really want is the Trust Fund brown polish so I'm really hoping it's in her bag. I wouldn't have minded the eyeliner pen either. I use so much of it that I'm almost out.

    Birchbox January 2017 Box *Spoilers*

    Grrr I need to stop taking a chance with Birchbox. I feel like it never gives me anything I want. Coastal Scents Revealed Palette- I'm good on eye shadow. I really need to use up what I have and I'm not even wearing it very much. My routine lately has been a quick swipe of ColourPop Tea Party eye shadow and some winged liner. The last Coastal Scents eye shadow I received was not very impressive. Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel- I really like simple basic skin care and sticking to what I know that works.I don't even use moisturizer samples for this very reason. I'll probably try it once and use the rest on my feet or something. Balance Me Congested Skin Serum- I prefer for my acne products to have either BHA or AHA. I also noticed this has lavender in it. The last two times I've used a skin care product containing lavender I broke out in a rash. Number 4 L'eau de Mare Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner- This brand isn't awful but I prefer cleansing conditioner to regular old shampoo and conditioner. Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue- This is my everyday fragrance so at least I don't hate the perfume sample. I was hoping for the Burts Bees Lipstick or some hair styling products. I'm really not that hard to please but they always miss the mark with me. Lipstick, mascara, liquid eyeliner, sheet masks, bb cream, hair styling products, all of these things I usually want to get. It's annoying to not get even one. Especially on a profile where you have makeup selected as the thing you want the most and get 1/6. I feel like Birchbox targets women older than me with a more conservative use of makeup. They get me with the promo codes every time though. I need to exercise some restraint!

    Ipsy bags are live! Mom's bag is perfect! Pacifica BLUSHIOUS in Wildrose- She could care less about the packaging but the unicorn is cute! This is a good color for her. I just hope it isn't too shimmery. Pretty Woman Nail Polish- She paints her nails weekly and either of these colors are great for her. Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss- Again she loves lip gloss and either color should be fine. Jelly Pong Pong Coffee + Coconut Lip Scrub- She's never used a lip scrub but being addicted to coffee and coconut oil she was intrigued. SL MissGlam Blend Beauty Brush L34- This was what I requested for her. She super happy because she's been wanting brushes. My bag SL MissGlam Blend Beauty Brush L34- I requested this for me as well. I really liked the face brush I got from them before. Manna Kadar Cosmetics Paradise Blush- Yay blush! I never get blush. This is a pretty color it looks really bright though. I'm going to have to apply it lightly. F.U.N. Lacquer TGIF- So pretty and shiny. Much want. purlise Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 mud mask + exfoliant- I enjoy masks and this one looks interesting. theBalm Cosmetics Bahama Mama- I've been wanting to try this and it's good for travel. My bag is also good. I wouldn't have minded a lip product but I don't hate anything. I hope everyone else gets good bags. Also ipsy is letting me give people their first bag free. It gave me five and I signed four people up so they gave me five more but I'm out of ladies to offer them to. If you want one you can private message me. I have to have a name and email address though. Also it will ask for your credit card information on the site and if you don't cancel you will be charged starting your second month. Oh and for people that already have one thinking they can get a second free bag don't bother it flags you. I know because I was a bit greedy.

    All of these samples are good in my opinion! My only issues would be if the face products are light enough but ipsy generally does pretty well with color matching. I asked if I could pick a sample again and for my mom's bag as well. They said yes and we both wanted the brush. These are the items you get to pick from this month if you email and ask them. —Pacifica BLUSHIOUS in Wild Rose —Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment in Desert Sunset —IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer in Light, Medium, or Tan —SLMissGlam Blend Beauty Brush L34 –pur~lisse Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 Mud Mask —NOTE Fragrances Pink Peony Eau de Parfum I took this from mysubscriptionaddiction.com
