July Ipsy Bag

It's that time of the month again, my Ipsy Bag arrived in the mail so I am here to share with you what I got this time.

The bag is cute this time but unfortunately my bag appears to have been damaged in the mail. I think it was from the way the eyeshadow brush was jammed into the bag or else it was the way it was put into the padded mailer. If I look closely I can see the stretching of the material.

The first item out of the bag is that brush that seems to have caused part of the problem. It looks like a nice eyeshadow brush but it too has gotten damaged in the mail. The bristles are definitely pushed to the side and the nice curve the brush has been bent to the side. I think the brush will still work, probably not as well as it would have if it had not gotten jammed into the bag. Which is truly sad since this brush retails for $21 here.

The second item I took out of the bag is the one I am most excited to try this month, the anti-frizz sheets for my hair! I can't wait to try these, and if they work I am sure I will be ordering more soon. Here is the website for the salon that created them, with a link to Amazon to purchase more ( box of 15 wipes for $18)

The Two Faced primer was the next item up, and my skin seems to be even more dry than normal lately. I think partly because I have been super busy and haven't been taking the time I know I should to take care of it. I think I can really test this primer and see if it will work a few miracles. If you want a tube of your own you can find it here for $32 for a full size tube.

I also got a tube of Skyn Iceland's Antidote Daily Lotion. The sample is 15 ml, so a fairly small tube but it should be enough to try and decide if it is something I would like. The full size is 52 ml and retails for $45.

The last item in my bag this month is an eyeshadow from The Balm, I absolutely love their packaging! The color of this eyeshadow is really pretty and is actually a color I would wear and I don't think I have anything like it in my collection. I am excited to try it out soon. The color I got is from this pallette that retails for $42.

So that was my Ipsy Bag this month, did you get a bag? What was in yours?

July Graze Box

I got a new Graze Box in the mail today so I sat down as soon as I got home to film a video opening and tasting all the wonderful yummies inside.

I haven't posted a Graze opening in a while. I filmed them but just never got the time to edit. That was why I decided to do this one as soon as I got home with it.

I love getting my Graze Box and look forward to its arrival more than any of my other subscriptions.

This box was probably the best one yet! So come on, let's dig into it.

Before we talk about the individual items let's just take a moment to look at how pretty it is....

Okay, enough of that, let's start tasting.

The first item out of the box is a return item and one I love, Stars & Strips is a mixture of dry fruit and fruit candy. I love this because you get the real fruit flavors and it isn't too sweet. Just perfect to my taste.

Next was another repeat Brooklyn Bites, I love the savory mixtures and this one is fantastic.

I don't remember getting any of the rest of the items before.

The Sour Cream & Garlic Crostini is really good, another savory item so it gets extra points before I even taste it.

Active Nutrient Blend was good, not my favorite but I would be happy to get it again. I think if the walnuts had been toasted or something they would have been better then this would have ranked up with the best choices.

On to the bottom layer.

The Original Fruity Flapjack, I am not the hugest fan of the flapjacks but this one was one of the better ones I have gotten. If you like granola bars you will probably like them.

The YummerTime Punch was really the only item I didn't care for this this month. If they had used something other than coconut I would have probably like it.

Spicy Siracha Crunch, I love this one! I wouldn't consider it to be really spicy, but I do love spicy food. I would rate this as a little spicier that maybe a medium salsa.

The last item this month was the Caramel Apple. This is one of the dip combos and I have liked most of them. I saw this one on the Graze site and was hoping it would show up in my box soon. The softly dried apple pieces with the caramel dipping sauce are a wonderful combination.

So that was my box for this month. Did you get a Graze box? What did yours have in it?
