because behaving is boring

Monthly Archives: January 2016

The whole month of December happened and I didn’t write one single thing.

Sure, I was busy. I started a part time job at the end of November and I really like it. Also, this thing called Christmas (maybe you’ve heard of it). We went to FIVE Christmas celebrations this year. I’m not complaining, but that’s a lot of super family together fun time.

All excuses aside, though, I kind of just didn’t feel like writing. Not even my Glam bag post…though, really, December’s bag wasn’t really that great. What was even in it? I don’t remember.

I’m not sure I’m totally out of my funk yet, but I’m slowly trying to baby step my way out of it.

Baby steps out of the elevator… Name that movie!

I was actually thinking of doing a YouTube video for this month’s bag, since I never really use my channel… and I also thought about broadcasting it on Periscope (do you have Periscope? We should be pals! Look up @Ashlee_Mae)…but I was feeling way too lazy to put makeup on. SO here we are.

Anyway, this month’s Glam bag was all eye products…which is nice, because I love, love eye stuff.

Except, I guess, for the wipes…

OFRA Universal Eyebrow Pencil

This is a pretty standard eyebrow pencil. It’s fine. I don’t know what else to say?

The Balm MR. WRITE (NOW) Eyeliner Pencil in Jac

I expected to hate this after trying that awful liquid matte lip gunk from The Balm. SURPRISINGLY, I really like this eyeliner. The color actually looks nice on lazy makeup days (just liner and mascara) and with eyeshadow. Plus, it isn’t black eyeliner. Because Ipsy LOVES TO SEND ME BLACK EYELINER. I don’t know why.

jelly pong pong Fairy Lashes Curl mascara

That name, tho.

Anyway, I think I like this. It can be a little messy…

…but overall I like how it looks. Does it curl my lashes? I have no idea. But it does have some kind of crazy staying power, because it lasted through an evening face wash, a night of sleep, and a morning shower.

J. Cat Beauty blinkle shimmer eyeshadow in Tangerine Light

Dammit, this one was a little disappointing. I’ve been wanting a really good shimmery shadow for a while, and I actually squealed a little when I found this in my bag…but upon application I really didn’t see any shimmer (you can see it in the poorly lit photo above and in the swatch below, btw).

I still like the color, but I do wish it were more sparkly.

skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths

These are pretty great, actually. As you can see in the (again, horribly lit) photo above, they definitely removed makeup from my face. I’m not sure if it ALL came off, but I was being super lazy about it and possibly missed a spot or two.

Overall, this was a pretty good bag!

Do you Ipsy? What did you get? If you don’t yet and you want to, follow this link to take the quiz and sign up. Ten bucks a month for a bag of goodies in your mail, and you get to discover lots of fun new brands!

OH, AND. If I did some videos or broadcasts, would y’all be into that? What would you want to hear about? Tell me in the comments!

Did you miss me? I missed you!
