Five on Friday - September 28, 2018

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week - I had a super busy week at work and my husband has been out of town all week, so I could not be more ready for the weekend! 


So, I unsubscribed from Boxycharm last month, and I like to get at least 1 monthly subscription, so I resubscribed to Ipsy after a year and a half of not being subscribed! But shockingly, it's only my first month and I'm already not loving the picks for me and it came so late in the month - this subscription probably won't last long! 

If you don't know much about Ipsy, it is $10 US a month + $5 shipping to Canada. You get 5 deluxe samples or full sized products with a little makeup bag. September's theme is "Who Is Going to Stop Me" and the 5 products I got this month are:
  • MPrincess loose shadow in Pretty Petal (deluxe sample)
  • The Creme Shop 2-in-1 Facial Foam Cleanser (deluxe sample)
  • Luxie Beauty Wonder Woman Detail Tapered Blender 140 (full size)
  • Apto Healing Turmeric Mask (deluxe sample)
  • Elizabeth Mott Face Primer (deluxe sample)
So, I'm happy to see a mask in here, especially a turmeric mask; but, everything else is just okay for me. I don't need any more samples of face wash or primer, and the brush and shadow will get used - they are okay, just not stand outs for me. I really just wanted a makeup subscription in the mail; but, I can't myself staying subscribed for too long. 


Last weekend in Calgary was Beakerhead - which is kind of a week of science, art, and engineering displays. We didn't get to check out a lot of events; but, Damian really liked what we saw, so next year we will check out more! 

What we did go see was this "Dreams Never Die" which was on an abandoned heritage house and it is inspired by the movie UP! These are biodegradable balloons so they won't take over the landfills and it was such a cool display! I look forward to seeing more next year! 


Earlier this week, Elliott turned 17 months old! Where is the time going?! Next month he will be a year and a half already - it's so crazy! He's as wild as ever and so stinkin cute - he keeps me on my toes for sure! 


Ahh... the best part about Fall is Fall beverages! We were shopping at Winners and found all these delightful flavors of coffee and had to try them out! Pumpkin Creme Brulee - how could I resist?! 


The end of the month also means time for my Monthly Declutter! So, the Mannakadar and Lord & Berry products just came in a lot that I bought and I had no interest in them! The Dr. Brandt vacuum cleaner just didn't sound like a mask I wanted to use (which doesn't happen often!) The Pacifica shadow palette I just bought in a swap and I wanted to try out the formula; but, this palette was an Ipsy exclusive so it just didn't seem like a good idea to try. 

Also, the Naked Cosmetics palette looks fairly similar to the Pacifica one and it is a seriously gorgeous palette and the shadows are great; but, I never touch it because I have these shades duplicated in other palettes (it is really good though!). The Tartelette Flirt palette as the shadows really muddied on me and didn't work well. The Hard Candy bronzer is just too warm on me.

I hope you all have a great weekend!
