"Fearless Heroine"-- Ipsy December 2014

Holly-Molly, I feel like I have been waiting for this month's bag for a decade already! It's a middle of the month,so you can understand my frustration! 
"You're A Fearless Heroine"- This is the theme of this month,including New Years wishes on the back of the card. 

So, first lets talk about the bag!! When I saw it I was like - Meehh" (according to my Instagram comments) the bag is in satin fabric in black and also included a zipper which is awful(I hardly open it,poor quality) and a heart shape ipsy key chain(cute) I feel like it's not suited for the Holiday month, SORRY! 

5 items in the bag- 

  1. Bumble & Bumble Blow Dry- 0.5 oz (sample)
  2. Cailyn Mineral Eye Polish- 0.09 oz (Full Size!- value $15.00)
  3. Nourish Organic Eye Cream-0.5 oz (Full Size!) 
  4. NYX Butter Lip Balm- 0.14 oz (Full Size!)
  5. Tarte Mascara- 0.10 oz (Sample)

Found this outside the bag including description paper.It's an expensive brand.I think I have previously tried their hair serum from my Sephora haul.It's a cream based hair serum that helps to repair damage hair- i guess they knew that i needed sth like that for my dry hair.I am really excited to try this out.The scent of the cream is very nice , not over powering at all. 

At first, when i saw the sneak-peak, I thought,it might be nail polish! fool me!! It's a mineral loose eye shadow powder in a orchid shade.It's a full size products which retail $15!! I love the sponge applicator as well.The eye shadow formula  is nice and spread peacefully! It's a great shadow for highlights as well! I am probably gonna use it on the cheeks too!! Love it. 

I do not find the price tag for this Eye cream.It's still not available on their website,They'll release it on January 2015.But it is a full size eye cream.I have never tried anything from this brand before.I thought it's a hand cream!! HoHo!! Are you kidding me-- the formula is a bomb for this cream.Thick/watery/not greasy!! I don't know how to explain!! Just love it.Absorb fast around the eye area!! And doesn't burn my eyes at all.No perfume scent,just I can smell the natural oil in the cream.Little goes a long way.Very moisturizing and hydrating! I am glad to find it in my bag this month. 

So, this is the lip balm from NYX Butter.It's smell like star-burst gum and luckily got the pink shade (parfait).It does have pigment.I personally dislike pigmented lip balm though.It's probably full size as well.Let's see if I like it or not. 

Tarte mascara sample= Yes Please!! I have heard so many good things about this mascara on the blogs,excited to  try out!! 

So, yup that's all i have received this month.Final thought- I love this month's bag! No deny!! Among all the five products my favorite is .... Nourish Organic Eye Cream!! Excuse me if you dislike it☺ 

FOTD Moment! Haha! I think I finally getting addicted to green lippie!!♥

Yalmeh Beauty Vitamin C Lotion || Review

Well, it's a typical Tuesday again! I was watching an old movie with hubby last night and got lack of sleep then. Hmm.. To ignore this awkward tiredness, all I need Is a cup of. Fresh Beet juice and a good moisturizer lotion.currently I am using "Yalmeh Beauty Glorify VitaminC Moisturizing Lotion" for facial care. 
It's actually a sample size(0.5 oz) I have almost finished using it. I don't usually prefer lotion base moisturizer but for winter season I have to use it anyway. 
Read details below to learn more about this lotion. 

Yalmeh Glorify Vitamin C Moisturizing Lotion is power full antioxidant and protection and prevention of the formation of free radicals in sun exposed skin. Lightens spots, discoloration, refines skin texture and reduces wrinkle formation as well as existing wrinkles. vitamin C is rapidly gaining popularity in skin care. It is appears to be just as effective as scorbutic acid in the stimulation of collagen production. Vitamin E helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. It also helps protect skin from harmful free radicals in the environment.

My Opinion- 
It is anti-aging moisturizing lotion. I love it, because it I moisturizer and hydrates my skin without making my face oily/greasy at all. As I don't have aging spot yet on the face, I am not sure if it can reduce it or not but I am pretty sure it does make a difference! Specially when my skin looks very tired, I like to apply this lotion to soothe the skin. It has very mild scent which I barely can notice. Absorbed fast and very effective. 
The packaging is same as their eye cream(HERE) a tiny size sample moisturizer is great to keep in your purse on the go. I almost finished it and lasted me for a month! 
If you want something simple but effective products, do check out their website. 

Price- $17.95

Have a Happy Holiday!
