I kinda went nuts baking this week.
Gingerbread Cookies for the dogs
Fudge and Crinkle Cookies
Pecan Pie Bars
Peanut Butter Balls
And then since I hadn’t baked enough I made Gingerbread Muffins cause I did not want to eat anything too sweet today.
So if I am big as a house come January 1st don’t judge me.

Love the bag. It might be my favorite one ever that they have sent.
I did not try the Coolway spray stuff. I actually think I might send it to my sis-n-law. This is like the second time I have received something like this for my hair??? I have straight fine hair and I hardly ever use hair spray…..What the french Ipsy…… Full size retails for $19.95.
The eye shadow from INSPR is really nice and pigmented. It was also not powdery at all. I was actually really surprised cause I did not have high hopes. I received the shade Carnival and it retails for $13.00.
The next gem was the Model Co highlighting trio. They are super pigmented and could be used for highlight or the peach bellini & bronze shimmer for eye shadow. It retails for $22.00.
The brush from SLMissGlam is super soft but I have only used it twice and it doesn’t pick up product very well which was a bummer. Maybe I just need to use it more?? It retails for $14.50.
The Smashbox full exposure mascara wand is freaking ginormous!! And it transfers through out the day so it’s a no go for me. Full size retails for $20.00.
My lighting went a little squirrely hence why I look jaundice & ignore my rogue eyebrow please & thank you.

Before I jump into this months bag just some randomness from this morning…
I made a smoothie and decided I would use a new recipe I pinned that called for greek yogurt. I was all okay I have some of that cause that is what I give Ginger with her flaxseed. I made it and immediately was like um NO just NO why would I want to put something that tastes like sour cream in a smoothie… Good thing Ginger loves that stuff cause I will never touch it again where smoothie making is concerned!!!!
So I poured that out and will stick with my Yoplait vanilla or strawberry/banana yogurt. I know it is not as “healthy” but you know I like to unhealthy stuff.
(the candy corn in the shot did not go in the smoothie but that might have been pretty tasty)
& while I was taking pictures I noticed the little sun dial thingy where you can change the brightness of the picture…yeah that was probably added a bazillion updates ago but I have just never paid attention to it! I always go into another app to fix the lighting….
Hello my name is Jenny and I should not be allowed to own a iPhone!!!
Okay now onto the makeup…
The theme for this months bag is alter ego. I somehow forgot to take a picture of the card but it is a girl with regular makeup and then a girl with vampire makeup. When you see the contents of the bag it doesn’t really go with it. I would expect like a bunch of Halloween themed makeup after seeing that card??
Anywho the bag is a shiny gold on one side and a like patent leather black on the other. More of a New Years theme then a Halloween theme but maybe they were going for a Fall gold theme here??
I am so confused It is still cute so no biggie.
BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty) fragrance free hand and body treatment. It truly is fragrance free. It smells like nothing but also doesn’t have that weird I’m fragrance free smell either. It is pretty light weight and sinks into the skin quick which is what I like in a hand cream so that is what I will be using it for. Full size retails for $11.95.
Medium eye shader brush from Royal & Langnickel. Just a classic shader brush. It is soft and a pretty color so I will take it. Retails for $3.99. (In the link above it will take you to a similar brush because I could not find the exact brush on their site which always kind of annoys me when this happens cause what if I wanted to buy another one that looked just like this one…sigh…)
Nourish Organic pure hydrating argan face serum. I did not even open this because it is going straight to my sis-n-law who has dry skin. I would probably look like a grease ball if I tried to use that. Full size retails for $23.99.
Benefit Meet Matt(e) Hughes in the shade Committed. This has a vanilla mint flavor so if you don’t like minty lip products it may not be for you. It is a really pretty shade and goes on very comfortable and pretty much stays that way but after about 15 minutes of wearing it I looked in the mirror and it just made my lips look cruddy. I slapped some Victoria Secret lip balm over top and it saved it but I definitely would not wear this alone. The full size retails for $17.00. (side note I am not a fan of matte lip products of any kind so this may be fabulous for someone who loves them.)
Mica Beauty Cosmetics cream eye shadow in bronze. This is exclusive for Ipsy subscribers and I could not find any cream eye shadows on their site. Their normal bronze eye shadow retails for $14.95. It is really pretty and maybe this is something that could be used in a Halloween/Fall look but it is the only thing in the bag that would.
