I purchased this Lilly Pulitzer dress on a whim.  I saw it, and just thought "Oooooo, boats."  Well, it came in the mail and I had thoughts about returning it.  But, then I tried it on.  And I fell in love.  I figured, I guess I'm a boat person now.

Kiss Me Darling is bringing you my fav outfit from last two weeks ago.  I picked this outfit because she is showcasing one of the fall's soon-to-be biggest trends: fringe.  Oh, and also, she's wearing stripes.  I freakin' love stripes.

June Ipsy Glam Bag Review

June 2015 Glambag

treStique Eyeshadow Crayon (0.02oz ~ $13): treStque is marketed as easy to use cosmetics.  However, I have to say the form of this pencil is really difficult to use as a shadow.  I got a darker color, Kona Coffee, and was hoping to use it in the eyelid crease.  However, the pencil is so thin that you're basically drawing on a line that you hope you can smudge enough with your finger to create the illusion of an eye shadow.

 Lavanila Laboratories Body Butter (0.85 oz ~$3):  This stuff was just really nice, hydrating, pleasant smelling lotion.  Perfect size for my complaints.

Smashbox Photofinish Primer (0,25 oz ~ $9): Do I even have to tell you that this is the best primer out there?  No, I shouldn't.  Because it is.

J. Cat Lipitude Hydrating Lip Stain (full size ~$6): I believe it is false advertising to call this "hydrating."  I felt like I was rubbing liquid sandpaper on my lips.

Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil (full size ~ $24):  This might be my favorite product ever from my Ipsy bag. It is hands down the best eyebrow pencil I have ever used.  It's thin and oval shaped, making it easy to fill in think and thin brows.  The color also changed depending on how hard you press, making it even more versatile.

Not a bad haul at $55!
