If I have one pet-peeve in the entire world, it’s being called a millennial. Personally, I think that 1982-2004 is ridiculously long for a generation. The Baby Boomer generation is only 18 years and Gen-X is only 14! I feel that there should be an additional generation for us younger people given the advances in technology. I still remember VHS, I owned cassette tapes, I used floppy discs, I experienced a classroom without computers – final draft would just be a cursive written document. And frankly, I have very little in common with people born in the late 90’s/00’s. The millennial thing really gets under my skin. I am not good with computers because I am a millennial, I apply myself – I have had to learn these things to keep up. I know who Bob Dylan is because I understand that there is an entire world outside of the scope of my existence. I read books, watch the news and documentaries, listen to the radio and stay curious. Shocking. Does this bother anyone else who has been randomly called a millennial, seemingly like it is an insult? Also, I love that this is thrown out by Baby Boomers and Gen-X’ers, so either you raised all of us entitled shit-heads or you didn’t…
Anyway, my October Ipsy arrived and I wasn’t that into it when I saw the reveal and have to say that the contents didn’t really grow on me either 🙁 I love the bag design, it is very Interview with the Vampire – it is a crimson red with lace detail. Here is what came in my bag:
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion – I feel as though I have received a black eye pencil in each of my bags this month. I wear black liner but it isn’t my go to, it can look bizarre with how fair my skin is. Also, I don’t love this formula – I only own a couple of these pencils but they are very skippy and tend to transfer so this will be a gift-away.
Cute Balms Lip Balm in Vanilla – This is lightweight, multi-purpose balm for lips, cuticles, hair – pretty much anything that needs some moisture. The tub is a little macaroon, it is very vanilla scented but doesn’t have a flavour as far as I can tell. I go through so much lip stuff, I will put this to good use.
tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara – This is a deluxe sample size, not bad – I do like this mascara. It is a vegan formula that is supposed to lengthen, curl, volumize and condition the lashes. I will use this up!
Hey Honey Trick and Treat Active Propolis Cream Concealer – This is hydrating under-eye concealer that is supposed to treat dark circles while covering them. It is formulated with Vitamin E, Amino Acids and nourishing oils. I am interested in trying this, I think that I received a balm from this brand before and used it up so I hope this is a winner too.
DOUCCE Freematic Highlighter in Solstice – I have something to say about highlighters. Over them. The beauty industry is so saturated with highlighter and I am over them, highlighter in person looks bizarre. It might look fabulous on HD cameras under studio lights but in person, pass. Just stop. I almost exclusively use highlighter as eye-shadow or I put it on under my blush but I don’t use it often. This is a champagne, gold shade that will make a lovely eye-shadow 😛
I had to darken the filter on these photos so that the lace would show up, it is way cuter is person! What did you get in your bag?
Thanks for stopping by <3
