Hey hey, it’s MJ,
Well I didn’t mean to take a month off, I really didn’t, but here we are either way. I had a weird May with the end of school and waiting for jobs to be posted, I am really hoping to get into the building I was in this year as a full time teacher. I really loved teaching middle school, who knew? Seriously, when I was getting my Master’s I thought that I wanted to work with little kids; I even student taught in 3rd grade, but this long term sub posting fell into my lap and I don’t want to be anywhere else. I found a family and I would really like to keep it.
So on to this since it’s kind of June, oops, my bad. It’s been a time y’all, a time. Here is May, June will be up when I get it in the mail.
I loved the bags this time with the two tone pink flowers, this is for sure one of my top ten favorite bags and I have probably said that a good dozen times but that list does change more frequently than I would like to admit. My parents are actually on vacation and some of the bags I didn’t want any more are going to my cousin’s kids and I hope they like them.
On to the most important part, what did I get?
Skin&Co Roma Citrus Amaro Hand Cream:
I love Skin&Co, I have a few of their products, or I have received them in the past and I have never been unhappy with them. This will probably be the hand cream that I stick in my purse and use on the go because I am a hand cream hoarder and I have to have one pretty much within arm’s reach wherever I am. I also love citrus scents in the summer so I am excited to give this one a try. I actually put some on and I have to say this, it smells amazing (not super overpowering), it goes on and it doesn’t make your hands feel sticky, and it’s not super greasy. So I am even more excited now than I was a few minutes ago.
Looks&Meii Cosmetic Infinity Sleeping Lip Mask:
I’m going to confess something, I have never used a lip mask; lip scrub is a more frequent fall and winter favorite so I am excited to see how it goes when I actually try this out, it might be tonight but who knows with me at this point. I hope it’s not sticky or anything like that. I do hope it’s more like a balm because I sometimes wear lip balm to bed but it’s not a frequent occurrence in my beauty routine. It’s made in Korea so I do hope that it is K-Beauty because there is so much great K-Beauty products out there.
Context Skin Nail Lacquer in Body Talk:
I was a secretary at a nail salon when I was in high school and so I was around a lot of nail polish like all the time. I don’t wear nail polish anymore, only on special occasions and to be honest; I didn’t really like this product. The color is fine and I did put it on to check it out but I didn’t like the application or the coverage. I love that it is free of some of the ingredients that you see in a lot of nail polishes but it’s just not for me because I don’t wear nail polish.
Tula Skincare The Instant Facial Dual-Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads:
I chose this one and I love Tula, I used their face wash for a significant part of last year and I loved it so much. I saw this one on IPSY’s Instagram and I knew immediately that I wanted it, if it was offered to me. Tula makes some really great skin care items and they don’t aggravate my skin (one of the products I’m using at the moment is really messing with my skin and I don’t know which one it is. Or it’s just bringing all the crap out of my pores and it’s going to look better soon, who knows.) I am really excited to give these a try when I get home next week.
Item Beauty Lip Quip in Come Thru:
I love the packaging, I kept it just because I wanted to take a picture of it for this post. I just read the card and it said it was from a TikTok star, I have recently downloaded the dreaded clock app and I have been losing hours to it. So this is fitting. I like a lot of the ingredients that are listed on the card because they are super moisturizing and there is a slight tint to it. Here’s hoping that I like it. It’s made without parabens and it’s vegan and you all by now know how much I like those buzz words on packaging.
For the most part the bag was good, I didn’t like the nail polish but everything else was cool. I am looking forward to my bag this month and I know that there are going to be four IPSY posts this month but let’s be real, June of 2018 was the same way because I took most of May off then too. I just haven’t felt creatively driven and for me, that’s super difficult to deal with because creativity on some days is the only thing that keeps me going. It’s been a challenge, but I’m walking out the other side stronger than before, so we good.
I hope everyone has a great start to the week and I will be back on Wednesday with a post I wrote a good month ago because that was supposed to be my next post in May but then I never posted it. Stay happy and healthy!
