The first thing I saw was this coupon/gift card thing for a produce subscription box. Not something I'll use, because I follow a meal plan service so we need specific items each week, but a nice bonus if that's something that you're interested in!
The first item that I pulled out of the box was this Tarte Cosmetics Power Pigment in Flush ($24).
The packaging is adorable and fun, and the lip color is great - it's well-pigmented and so far has stayed on pretty long both times I've used it. On the right, I put some on the back of my hand (the top is the product applied directly to my hand, the bottom area is where I kind of smudged it around for lighter color).
I forgot to photograph the last item, which was a Sesha one-time-use mask ($9). I haven't tried it yet, but I'll let you know what I think once I do.
As a whole I was pretty impressed with my first Glossybox. I received $67 in products, most of which I was really excited about! I can't wait for my next one, which will actually be sooner than normal because I purchased two previous boxes through a throwback special, which should arrive in the next week or so.Sam and I attended a Halloween party that my niece hosted at her house on Saturday night. I spent an exorbitant amount of money on a Bat Girl costume (thanks, Halloween Express, for the overpriced low-quality clothing to be worn one or two days a year), and Sam dressed as Jake from State Farm (that's his favorite commercial, and I thought the costume was pretty creative).
I spent a lot of time of my eye makeup for this costume, trying to get a Bat Girl-esque look going on. It ended up taking like an hour, but I think it looked pretty decent. I used bright yellow and yellow-gold shadows from an old palette that I picked up at Claire's like six years ago (I know, I totally should have thrown that away by now). The look would have been better if I'd had higher-quality yellow shadows, since Claire's isn't exactly known for quality, let alone makeup quality, but I worked with what I had. for the winged part in the crease, I used a taupe color from my Maybelline Expert Eye Wear quad, and then a black shadow from the Claire's palette over it. I used Physician's Formula liquid liner, the taupe shadow to line my lower lashes, iENVY by KISS lashes that I got in my October ipsy bag, and Urban Decay Perversion mascara. Overall I was pretty satisfied with how it turned out, but I wish I'd had a higher-quality, more pigmented yellow shadow.
On Sunday, we went with my parents, sister, and little brother to Irons Fruit Farm to get pumpkins.
I went pretty basic with my makeup - burgundy and pink shadows from my NYX Love in Paris palette (mentioned in the previous post) and taupe from the Maybelline palette mentioned earlier, Physicians Formula eyeliner, Marc Jacobs O!Mega mascara, Ardell whispie lashes, CoverGirl bronzer (I don't remember which one...a lot of the label has rubbed off), and Be Matte blush from a previous ipsy bag. I also used the Tarte lip color that I received in my Glossybox, and the Starlooks lip gloss that I've been pretty obsessed with lately.
For my outfit, I wore the drawstring funnel-neck sweatshirt that I bought from Stitch Fix last week, a pair of Hollister skinny jeans (not sure how I still fit in these), moto jacket from Target, a pair of black boots from Kohls, and a pair of two-toned earrings from a Brickyard Buffalo grab bag.
