May Ipsy Bag & Rimmel Volume Accelerator Mascara Thoughts


The bag itself is kinda cute not my fave to be honest.

Red lips

I received the:

Smashbox X-Rated. I did not care for the Smashbox Full Exposure I received in a previous Ipsy bag so I did not have high hopes for this one but it surprised me and I actually like it. Full size retails for $22.00. (IPSY15)


Red lips

The Organic Pharmacy Antioxident Lip Balm. I really like this. It reminds of the Malin & Goetz lip balm I received in a previous Ipsy bag which I love. It smells kinda citrusy. If you own the Pixi Nourishing lip polish it smells exactly like that. Retails for $22.50. Confused smile


Red lips

Simmisglam small contour brush. I have not used this yet but it’s pretty and the bristles are soft. I could not find a price for the single brush on their site. Sarcastic smile (SLIPSY25)


Red lips

Avene lotion cleanser and makeup remover. This removed mascara really well and it doesn’t burn my eyes so I give it two thumbs up. Thumbs upThumbs upFull size retails for $20.00 (IPSY15)


Red lips

And last I received a lip liner in the shade nude from BellaPierre Cosmetics. It is supposed to be waterproof but I have not really tested that out. I do like the color and it goes on very nice. Retails for $18.00. (IPSYMAY2016)



I was shopping my stash of mascaras and pulled this one out that I believe I received from Influenster as a badge prize.

It is the Rimmel Volume Accelerator. First off I am not a fan of the packaging. It is so bulky…why just why??


And the wand is ginormous. I don’t care for wands like this because you have to put in too much effort so you don’t poke your eye out or get the mascara all over the place. I am all about easy people!! Winking smile


Anywho’s I was still going to give it the benefit of the doubt until after two coats and this was all I got…(ignore my eyebrows please and thank you)


I DO NOT see any Volume at all??? It claims that after 30 days your lashes will look more numerous. I tried it for 3 days. Day 2 it transferred like crazy and Day 3 I got something in my eye about 5 minutes after applying it and blinked to hard and the mascara was everywhere.. Nope I don’t think I will make it to 30 days folks. Flirt male

A lot of people of Ulta love it but it looks like a lot of them layer it with another mascara so maybe that is the ticket to making it work so we will see. Ulta Reviews

Happy Monday Red lips

May Target Beauty Box

From what I can tell these get released the first week of the month now but they go super fast so you have to get them as soon as they go on sale.

The red lipstick was in the shade 205 lacque and roll. I did not swatch it because I think I am going to give it to my Mom.

Happy Monday!
