I don’t know, now I feel like Summer isn’t long enough with only 93 days!

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

The bags lately have really been good, honestly, I am not a huge fan of this one.  It IS cute.  But I don’t like how plastic-y it is.  This could be a cool bag for your pool bag though, since it should be waterproof.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlighter Duo

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Why You’ll Love It

  • Bronzing and highlighting are sorta like the PB&J of the makeup world. They’re fine on their own, but they’re 100% better together. That’s why we’re such big fans of this does-it-all duo that makes us look like we just got back from the best vacay ever (AKA radiant AF).

  • We call it California in a compact! The velvety powder is packed with pigments for a super vibrant, yet totally natural-looking glow (so you look like you’ve spent time in the sun, not getting a spray tan).

  • It’s SUPER long-wearing (like we went from brunch to a BBQ to a rooftop party and it didn’t budge long-wearing).

How to Use It

The Quickie Contour

No need to sculpt and bake all day. Shape up in seconds with this speedy routine:

1. Hold a brush handle against your cheek to help find the bottom of your cheekbones.

2. Apply contour shade or matte bronzer where the brush handle was.

3. Add a soft layer of contour along your temples, blending into the hairline.

4. Lightly sweep the contour or bronzer along your jawline, blending downward for natural-looking definition.

My Thoughts

I really like dual purpose products.  This is a great size for travel, and can cover bronze and highlight.  I am sure you could use this as an eye shadow too!  It was nicely sealed in the package.

PEEK Beauty metalimatte in A-Boo

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Why You’ll Love It

  • Powder or cream? Get you a blush that does both. This glow-getter goes on like a super smooth cream and dries to a perfectly matte, powdery finish.

  • We can’t get enough of the amazing peachy-pink hue, which instantly makes us look more alive (and gives us the natural flush that happens when our crush slides into our DMs).

  • Package obsessed? Us too, obviously. So we’re seriously in hearts with this adorbs, take-everywhere tiny tin.

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

How to Use It

Exactly where to apply blush:

1. Smile. (Think of bae. Or puppies. Or pizza.)

2. Hold two fingers vertically next to your nose; that marks your starting point.

3. Apply from that point upwards, moving towards your temples, in circular motions.

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

My Thoughts

First of all, how cute is this packaging?  It looks like all of their products are packaged this way, makes me want to buy ALL of them!  Reminds me of lip gloss!  I am not thrilled with cream blushes, and am not thrilled with anything matte.  Maybe Crystal, will want this, if not, I will find a home for it, it is too cute to sit in a drawer and not get used.

Luxie Beauty Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Why You’ll Love It

  • We wish we were as good at multitasking as this genius brush! You can use it for all your liquid, cream, or powder foundations, concealers, highlighters AND bronzers. NBD.

  • Earn brush bragging rights. The pretty periwinkle handle looks amazing in your kit, but even better on your vanity.

  • Have a brush with kindness! This fluffy beauty is 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

My thoughts

Who doesn’t love brushes?  First of all, this does not look like a foundation brush to me?  I will use it though for something 🙂  Full size is $23, This is full size.

Urban Decay Afterglow

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

What it is

Recovering from an especially late night? Overindulged in one too many margaritas? With Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter, nobody will ever know. Hide the aftermath of your bad decisions and give your skin a luminous, illuminated look with very little effort.

Afterglow isn’t your average highlighter; we took the time to finely mill the powder until it was just right. The result: a lightweight (yet luxurious) feel and a super-soft, creamy texture. Afterglow Highlighter goes on sheer and blends easily. Use a little or a lot; our wearable formula always applies beautifully, no matter how much you build it (and never leaves just a powdery dusting of shimmer). Available in a range of shades suitable for any skin tone, Afterglow creates a glowy, strobed effect that lasts all day (even if you’re crashing at your desk by 3pm).

Why You’ll Love It

  • You dew you! If you’re looking for an IRL version of that amazing Snapchat filter glow, this champagne-hued highlighter is IT.

  • Inside sources tell us the powder formula is super duper finely milled, which means it’s creamy AF, but still majorly lightweight.

  • We see you shining on (and on). This long-wearing luminizer kept our glow-game strong from morning rush hour to 6PM happy hour (and beyond).

  • We’re obsessed with all of Urban Decay’s shade names, but TBH the only sin you’ll be committing with this baby is being TOO lit.

Pro Tips

For the perfect application, dust on a little Afterglow anywhere that the sun naturally hits your face. Dab some around the corners of the eyes and on the brow bones for a wide-awake look. For that “What, me, a model?” look, apply down the bridge of the nose and in a “C” shape from the temples to the cheekbones. And for a full-on come-hither look, try a little on the Cupid’s bow too. Blend out quickly with your fingertips or a highlighter brush and you’re good to go.

Full size $26, Sample is $9.04

What it is

This Macadamia Oil Treatment infuses moisture, softness, and shine with a lightweight formula that is great for all hair textures. It includes natural UV protection to extend the life of color treatments and significantly reduces drying and styling time.

Why You’ll Love It

  • Step aside argan oil, there’s a new hair oil on the scene! And this one, made from Macadamia nuts, hydrates ALL hair types (yes, even curly, coily, and wavy), tames frizz, and strengthens your hair follicles.
  • We love bedhead, but greasy hair is not a good look. This oil is super fast-absorbing and lightweight, so it keeps your strands silky-smooth and hydrated, not heavy.

Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen in Opal Overcoat

Ipsy May 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Why You’ll Love It

  • Don’t be a drag. This super smooth, silky liner glides on like a dream (no tugging here!) and dries ASAP, so your lines stay perfectly sharp and smudge-free.

  • Trust us when we say the formula is SO waterproof. We even gave it a test run by watching the epic tearjerker Titanic and it did. not. budge.

  • We have zero tolerance for washed-out liner. This pencil is mega-pigmented, so your cat eye will REALLY pop.

Pro Tips

3 Ways to Use Pencil Liner

1. Sparse lashes? Tightline your upper waterline to create a fuller-looking fringe.

2. Have trouble drawing a straight line (who doesn’t)? Draw little dots along your lash line, then connect them and magic—a smooth line.

3. Eyeliner won’t stay in your waterline? Start with a pencil liner, then top with a powder eyeshadow in a matching color for extra staying power.

My Thoughts

I love that this is sealed well.   I love this shade, it will be really brightening.  The copperish tone of it will look great with my hazel eyes!
