LOOT CRATE APRIL 2015: FANTASY

IMG_1115

Tickle your Fantasy LootCrate April 2015

This month was all about Fantasy things in the gaming world. TOTALLY ME! If I were loot, I would be this! Maybe even more HP stuff. #addicted #noshame!! All of the items are really useful too! I hated getting the S.H.I.E.L.D ID and NOT getting access to the headquarters too! (C’mon man!)

The box this month was super creative as well! I loved the one that turned into a game board! I seriously fell in love with the goblin-like house-elfish figure! Even though it looked more like Kreacher, I am partial to Dobby.

The Princess Bride deck of cards, are really well made, and feel very sturdy. Plus the face cards have hilarious quotes from the actual movie. If I could just post these up everywhere I would, because yes, I DO want a peanut! (LOL)

The Stark House Dire wolf USB storage holds 4 GB of data. Different house options would have been great I think since I’m already partial to the dragons, but we got all the houses in the magnets. Definable putting this in my school pack, along with my 9 3/4 luggage tag. It just makes me want to travel even more!

The crate also included an inflatable crown and Dungeons and Dragons shirt, and bow tie.

We opened the box with all my family home, and my 5-year-old (who is very prepared for our wedding next April) saw the bow tie and exclaimed “AWE Mommy, FOR THE WEDDING!” I died. So adorable! thankfully I convinced him otherwise, due to the color scheme. Seriously so cute that he thinks of these things though!

I could not HELP but taking a Prince John reference photo with the little man.

LOOT CRATE March 2015: COVERT

wpid-picsart_1427727074127.jpg

Shaken not Stirred LootCrate March 2015

This is our third month of getting LOOTCRATE. So far, being in a house full of boys, we’ve made use of every item we’ve received so far. This month was especially fun, included a shirt, Mad Libs, Field notes, Stealth watch, Shield Access, Tactical bracelet, Orphan Black comic, and a digital download of Ninjak #1

This month my 5 year old LOVED the S.H.I.E.L.D.lanyard and the CaptureStealth watch as well as the tactical rope bracelet (its a bit scratchy, but I won’t complain when the Zombie Apocalypse makes use of this).

My fiance loved the James Bond Shirt and I can’t explain why I was so excited for the CONFIDENTIAL Field Notes. Seriously, I still love seeing the notebook in my purse and we’ve had it for nearly a week already.

We still haven’t won the MEGA Crate yet (LOL!!) Although I am loving seeing what it comes with every month, even if I only dream about it.

Although it works out since we bought a Moto 360 watch already, I guess I can live without an extra!

February ipsy Glam Bag Review 2015

 IPSY LOVE February Glambag

wpid-wp-1424321935404.jpeg

 GOODIES:

  • City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini
  • Demeter Fragrance Library First Love Roll-on Oil
  • GLAMGLOW Bright Mud eye treatment
  • ModelCo. Blush In Peachy
  • ‘Tini Beauty Rob Scheppy Eyeshadow

POSITIVES: Blush: very pretty color, especially for the coming Spring, packaging on this blush is super fancy as well, feels very sturdy. Eye-shadow: LOVE shimmery champagne colors. Who doesn’t?! It gives off a lovely shimmer and is a great yellowy gold shade. Lip-stain: This stuff is SO nice! almost a dupe for the NYX Soft Matte Lip creams. Thankfully its pale nude-pink shade goes well with my skin tone!

NEGATIVES: Bag: very mundane….with V-day I would have thought it could have been more creative, but I guess its decent for everyday use. I hate the front zip. It shrinks the bag size by inches! Fragrance: This oil got everywhere. I am clumsy. Yes. But I swear it was not human error. I smelt like a flower pot for hours. (lasting power could be a slight positive though!? Maybe?!)

Feb. Bag

This bag nearly completed an entire makeup look with what I received! It makes me want to wear all the products at the same time….ALL the time!

GLAMGLOW

LOVED using the GlamGlow eye treatments!! These felt very cooling and tingling on the skin. Although I have to say that the chucks of whatever kind of herb/grass/lint-looking specks were pretty off putting. But not so much that I didn’t use them, and I still plan to use them again!

January ipsy Glam Bag Review 2015

 FRESH START January Glambag

ipsy glam bag january 2015.

 GOODIES:

  • Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush
  • LashFood Phyto-Medic Lash Enhancer
  • Malin+ Goetz Mojito Lip Balm
  • Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow
  • Probelle Into The Blue Nail Lacquer

POSITIVES: All Over Shadow Brush- EXCEPTIONALLY soft, and the handle is a reasonable length. Mojito lip balm is very thick and silky feeling on the lips, and not at all goopy.

NEGATIVES: Pacifica mineral eye shadow should be labeled “highlighter” see swatch clip below, its hardly noticeable even after a couple layers.

wpid-img_0339.jpg

This bag included plenty of fun addtions to my collection, and I love getting full-sized products for the price of the bags each month too!

Look out soon for a NOTD post using the Probelle polish as well as a Put To The Test blog post on the Lashfood product, to see if this truly does beef up your lashes after a month of use.
