May Ipsy Bag


I actually received 5 products in my Ipsy bag this month, but I somehow managed to lose  a little tube of face cream.  I am super bummed out I lost it because it seemed like something I would use. Oh well! Here are my May Ipsy goodies:
1. Oscar Blandi Volumizing dry shampoo
2. May Ipsy Bag
3. Urban Decay Revolution lip gloss samples
4. Bella Pierre gel eyeliner and a make-up brush

Lip Color of the Week

I am loving this lipstick from Estée Lauder. My best friend, Cole, sent me a birthday package of all new makeup and this was included. It is a perfect shade for summer!

Book Review: Not That Kind Of Girl

Not That Kind Of Girl by Lena Dunham
GoodReads Synopsis:
From the acclaimed creator, producer, and star of HBO's Girls comes a hilarious, wise, and fiercely candid collection of personal essays that establishes Lena Dunham as one of the most original young talents writing today.

In Not that Kind of Girl, Dunham illuminates the experiences that are part of making one's way in the world: falling in love, feeling alone, being ten pounds overweight despite eating only health food, having to prove yourself in a room full of men twice your age, finding true love, and, most of all, having the guts to believe that your story is one that deserves to be told.

Exuberant, moving, and keenly observed, Not that Kind of Girl is a series of dispatches from the frontlines of the struggle that is growing up. "I'm already predicting my future shame at thinking I had anything to offer you," Dunham writes. "But if I can take what I've learned and make one menial job easier for you, or prevent you from having the kind of sex where you feel you must keep your sneakers on in case you want to run away during the act, then every misstep of mine will have been worthwhile."
My Thoughts:
First, let me just say, I LOVE Lena Dunham on Girls and most of her independent films.  I had high hopes for this book.  I love Lena's quirky sense of humor, but I just REALLY didn't like this book! It really bummed me out. Have you read it?

Lip Color of the Week

April Favorites

1. This Sephora brush cleaner for your make up brushes is amazing!!!! There is a round rubber thing in the lid of this that you rub your brush across when you get it soapy.  It makes it lather and cleans your brushes super fast.  I LOVE it!!!

2. Mary Kay Timewise cleanser and night gel. I especially love the night time gel. Makes my face feel so good!!! (If you are interested, CLICK HERE for my gorgeous Mary Kay consultant's page!)

3. Mario Badescu's dry lotion is awesome!!!! It is part liquid, part sediment at the bottom.  NEVER shake it up! It is suppose to be separated like that.  Just dip your Q-tip into the bottom of the pink lotion and dab it on your blemishes.  Dries them out super fast!

4. My sweet boyfriend bought this for me for my birthday.  It's one of my favorite masks. Only use it once a week because it can be very drying. It's also good as a spot treatment!

Have you tried any of these products?

My Favorite Hand Lotion

Dead Sea Cosmetics Coral Hand & Body Lotion
The first time I got this hand lotion was in 2013. It was a gift and I absolutely loved it.  (Actually, I love most Dead Sea products.) I was bummed when I ran out.  I had no idea where I would find more.  Then, while on a family vacation, I found a store that carried it.  I was so excited!!!
I use this every night before bed.  Have you tried it before? What did you think?
