I really shouldn’t have, but I did. BH Cosmetics recently had a good sale that I couldn’t pass up, so I bought myself some new goodies. Time to show you guys what I got! I haven’t tried the products yet except for the lip creams and the foundation, so I can’t really say what I think of most of the products yet. I have several other palettes from BH Cosmetics that I absolutely love though, so hopefully these live up to that. I definitely plan to do some makeup looks soon using some of these products, so keep your eye out for those.

The other night I got bored and was playing around with my NYX Love You So Mochi: Electric Pastels palette, which is one of my favorite shadow palettes. There is some fallout with this palette, but the colors are beautiful and well pigmented, which is why I love it so much. The colors also work very well together and blend nicely.
I did this look at night, so of course I didn’t have the benefit of natural light to truly capture it. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out though. After I do an eye look, sometimes I like to switch up the lips because it can really change the vibe of the look. The first lip color I started out with was NYX Cosmic Metals lip cream in shade Galactic. Then I switched to ColourPop Ultra Matte lip in shade Viper.
Which of these looks do you like the best? Make sure you let me know in the comments!

I want to start by saying that this will be my last Ipsy glam bag post for at least three months. I’ve put my subscription on hold since I am supposed to be moving next month and I need to cut out some things to save money. I may end up canceling it for good, but I just put it on hold in the meantime since I haven’t actually decided what I want to do yet.
This is one of my favorite bag designs I’ve gotten from Ipsy thus far. I love the color of it, and the butterflies are really pretty.

I did a few pretty simple makeup looks this past week, all of which only took me about 5-10 minutes on average. I actually ended up really liking how they turned out, so I thought I would do a quick photo roundup of the looks. I’ve posted them on my instagram, so if you follow me there, you may have already seen them. I used a lot of the same products for these also. Make sure you let me know which one is your favorite in the comments!

What a cool idea for a bag this month! You all know I am a creative/artsy type, so this is perfect. It comes with markers so you can color it! I haven’t colored mine yet because I want to use more than just the two colors they provided me with, but I probably will eventually.

I am beyond excited to be posting my first collaboration with Rossy from AyR Galaxy! I contacted her a couple weeks ago about doing a St. Patrick’s Day makeup post. We both like trying out different looks, and we’re on a similar skill level when it comes to makeup, so I felt like we would be a great match together.
I thought it would pretty cool if we each did two looks and then split those among our blogs. I am posting one of my looks here on my blog, and Rossy will be posting the other look I created on her blog. Likewise, I’m posting one of her looks here, and she will be posting her other look on her own blog. So make sure you check out her blog post so you can see the other great looks we created!

I’m a little late getting this post up. It’s already March! I’ve been quite stressed out at work this week, and as soon as I get home I just feel like crashing. That’s what I almost did tonight too, but I had to muster up the motivation to get this up so that I don’t stray too far off schedule.
The design this month has a classy and elegant feel to it, though it’s not one of my favorites. I don’t dislike it either, I’m just sort of indifferent to it. I don’t really use the bags though. I just kind of hoard them.
