March Subscriptions: Sol Theory and Ipsy

I decided, since I'm running behind on getting these out, that I wanted to combine this month's Subscriptions.

Today we will dive into my Sol Theory and Ipsy bags!

First, let's look at Sol Theory.

This is a newer box that I have been getting and they are kinda cool so far. Last month's box was pretty good and I loved the sunglasses! To see the unboxing click here

I opted for the 1 pair of sunglasses and 3 beauty products for about $20 a month. They have boxes starting at $12!

So, from what I have gathered from the 2 boxes I have received, it seems they do alot with Indie brands. That really appeals to me as I love to try brands I have never heard of!

First we have

J.Cat Fab Five Shadow Palette in Jaded Wasteland $5

I can't say that I have ever tried this brand, though I have heard great things about them. I was excited to have an all green palette!

I am blown away at how awesome these shadows are! They are pigmented, super creamy, and so easy to blend!! I am not one to wear alot of green shadow, but I am looking forward to using this and I think I can create some great looks with this!

French Clay & Eucalyptus Facial Mask 

Now, I am kinda bummed that this doesn't have a brand name or website, but I am super excited to try this out! I love clay masks and what I love more than that, is that this is all natural. Ingredients are simple: Pure french clay, Water, almond oil, essential oils.

I plan to try this for my First Impression Friday post.

Q&AL if you know who makes this, let me know in the comments below! 

Aurora Bath Bomb $7

I love that this is an Etsy seller! I always get so excited when I see that! "This bath bomb will fill your bathtub full of suds of different colors. Relaxing Epsom salts are embedded in these beauties to make sure you get that relaxed feeling a bath is meant to be:

The scent is AMAZING it smells like a lemon sorbet! I can't wait to see it in action!

The Glasses

I don't hate these..but aviators never have looked good on me. I love the blue tint that the lens has and the outer corner reminds me of cat ears. They are super cute, lightweight yet sturdy and comfortable to wear. I am LOVING the ones I got last month though it took me a while to get used to the size.

Let's take a look at Ipsy! 

I have to say, I am LOVING the bad itself! It's oversized which makes it really nice for me considering I like to take a lot of stuff with me on the go. Plus I could use this in place of my purse 'cause it's super cute!

mPrincess Eyeshadow in Chestnut $15

Okay, so I am going to be brutally honest here. I can't stand this shadow! First of all, the packaging feels super cheap! It's such a thin plastic and I feel like when I open it that I am going to break it!

Second thing...

Where's the pigment!?! It's so rough and hard almost 'dried out' when I swatched it. The color looked okay on my giner with a pretty bronze look, but when I put it on my hand, it was gone! I did 3 swatches overtop eachother and it doesn't look like there is anything!

And the price? umm no. I wouldn't pay $15 for this shadow..

Q&A: Did anyone else have this issue as well?

Moving on :)

Vasanti Contour Eyeshadow 4 Brush $21

I love when I get brushes and I have been lucky and received one in just about every bag. This brush is perfectly shaped to get into the crease and really blend. It's super soft and fluffy.

theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer $20

This is, no lie, my FAVORITE Bronzer of all time!! I am soo happy that I received this! theBalm has alot of amazing products and I just love them! This is a Matte Bronzer that gives you the perfect tanned color! This is the perfect shade for contour for me. Super blendable and buildable and overall just AMAZING!

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Mini $79

I haven't used this product before, but I hear great things about this brand. This is supposed to help refine skins texture, brighten and reveal radiant, smoother, clearer skin.

Ouai Hair Treatment Mask  $32

I haven't tried this brand before but I am intrigued.. mainly because it took me FOREVER to figure out how to pronounce it..  which is 'WAY) for anyone curious.

This is a wash out treatment mask for your hair. It will help with repairing damaged hair and protects against future damage. Just comb it through and wash it out after 5-10 minutes
