Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on two more Charlotte Tilbury products; the Hollywood Flawless Filter and the Cheek to Chic Blush in Climax. I have wanted to try the Hollywood Flawless Filter for so long because so many people rave about it. I really like the two Cheek to Chic Blushes that I own so I decided to pick up another one. I wanted to make sure that was a way different color than the shades that I already own. I picked these up during the Black Friday sale and they came together in a kit. Keep reading to hear more about these products!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Medium Lip Kit! I have already done reviews of the original Pillow Talk HERE and Very Victoria HERE. I decided to pick up the Pillow Talk Medium Shade because I like Mauve toned lipsticks and I love the formula of the Matte Revolution Lipsticks. I also purchased during Charlotte's Black Friday Sale so the kit was either 30 or 40% off. Keep reading to hear about this lip kit and my thoughts on the products.

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for December! For those of you unfamiliar with Ipsy Glam Bag, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 5 deluxe/sample sized products each month. The subscription is $13.00 a month and each month is a different theme. With Glam Bag you are able to choose one product that goes into your bag. They also offer an upgraded box every month called Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. This box is $28.00 a month and includes 5 full sized products. You are able to choose 3 of the products in your bag and Ipsy chooses 2 for you. Ipsy's picks are based of your beauty quiz/product reviews. They also offer a quarterly bag that replaces your Glam Bag and Glam Bag Plus called Glam Bag X. This box is $55.00 a quarter and includes 7-8 full sized products from higher end brands. Glam Bag X is usually curated by a special celebrity/influencer. With all subscriptions you also have the option to skip a month whenever you feel like it which is a huge bonus offering. The theme for this month is. "Time To Shine".  Keep reading to see what I got in my bag this month! I will link all of the products in the description above each picture.

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my Winter FabFitFun Box! For those of you unfamiliar with FabFitFun it is a quarterly subscription that you get every season. The box is filled with beauty, fashion, home, and lifestyle items and the fun part is you are able to pick some of the items! There are also items that are picked by the FabFitFun team. Seasonal members (who are subscribed quarterly) are able to pick 4 of the items in their box. You usually have 4+ choices to pick from. If you are a select member (those who subscribe for the year in advance) you are able to pick all of the items in your box. You also have the option to add on additional products. I really like the variety that this subscription box offers. I am a yearly subscriber so I get to pick all items in my box which I love. I will link all of the items in my box in the text below the pictures. If they are not available then I will link something similar. You can also shop most of these items at the bottom of the post. Keep reading to see what I got!

Huda chose a bunch of her favorite beauty products to feature in this box as well as some favorites from her personal beauty brand Huda Beauty.  Keep reading to see what I got in my bag this month!

Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021

Here is a close up of the palette:
Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This is the first item that I chose. I was glad to see they offered both a warm and cool toned option. I always prefer warmer and/or neutral palettes. This palette is really pretty and I've been happy the looks that I have created with this so far.

Here are swatches of the shadows:

Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This was the second item that I chose. It contains two peachy/coral shade blushes and one warm gold highlighter. I really love Ofra blushes and highlighters so I am excited to try these out. These will be really pretty colors for the summer.

Here are swatches of this palette:

Huda Beauty Legit Lashes Mascara $27.00
Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This was the first product that Ipsy chose for me. I really love trying new mascaras so I was excited to get this. I haven't tried any double sided mascaras before and this is really cool! I love how it makes my lashes look.

Rare Beauty Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm in Nearly Mauve $18.00
Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This is the second item that Ipsy chose for me. I have wanted to try some Rare Beauty products for a while and I was glad to see this. The formula feels really nice on my lips and I like the color too.

Here is a swatch of the glossy lip balm:

Patrick Ta Major Glow Softening Lip Masque $22.00
Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This is the third item that I chose for my bag. The lip masque feels nice on my lips I just wish I didn't have to stick my finger in the jar and apply it that way. 

Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Baking & Setting Powder in Sugar Cookie $34.00
Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This was the third item that Ipsy chose for my bag. I do wish that that chose a different color option like the more yellow toned shade but I really like this setting powder! It does great at setting my makeup and keeping it in place while also brightening. 

PMD Beauty Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device $99.00
Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This is the forth item that Ipsy chose for me. I haven't used it yet because I already have a skincare cleaning device but it is a cool tool. I will probably try it at some point or gift it.

Review: Ipsy Glam Bag X November 2021
This was the fifth item that Ipsy chose for me. I have never tried this brand before but I hear good things about it. I was excited to try this out and do like it! It gives my hear a nice shine and helps with split ends and fly-aways!

TOTAL VALUE: $288.49

IPSY PROMOTIONS
Ipsy offers discounts and cash back on brands/products featured in each month's glam bag. You are able to purchase full sized products that are sampled/or featured in the Glam Bag that month. The products are discounted from normal price and you can get cash bag on the purchase. They also offer "Ipsy Offers" that are discounted beauty bundles from different brands. You are also allowed to add "Add Ons" to your Glam Bag Plus which are other items featured that month that are not part of your personal box. These items are heavily discounted. Lastly, they offer "Mystery Bags" which again are bags of heavily discounted products.

Overall, I was really happy with my first Glam Bag X! At first I wasn't thrilled with the choices and options but once I got my box and really looked at what I got and tried them I was pretty excited. I think Glam Bag X is a great subscription upgrade and you most definitely get your moneys worth. I was happy that all of the brands featured in this bag were from Sephora/Ulta and well known. I was also happy with the Huda Beauty items that were in my bag. I will definitely be thinking about upgrading to Glam Bag X the next quarter as well!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my Amazon Holiday Gift Guide for 2021. Between the ease of online shopping and some people still staying away from crowds because of Covid, I know many people are choosing to do a majority of their shopping online again this year. Amazon is the one stop shop for everyone on your list! They make shopping super easy and their returns as so simple too! These gift guides take a TON of work so I hope that they are helpful to you! I wanted to cover more bases this year on the gift categories but also narrow down the amount of gifts suggested. Below I have created different collages to highlight some items from each guide. I have linked all of the gifts pictured in these collages plus a few more more under "Shop This Gift Guide". If you prefer you can head to my shoppable LikeToKnow.It page HERE where I have also linked all of these collages and items. If you want even more ideas you can check out my Amazon Gift Guide 2020 from last year HERE. Keep reading to check out my gift guides below!
