Frugal Friday - Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara - Review

Happy Friday beauties!

Welcome back to Frugal Friday!  I know it's been a while since my last Frugal Friday post but hopefully after this week I'll go back to my usual Frugal Friday post schedule of every other week.
The Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara is Covergirl's newest mascara. I adore the pink packaging with silver lettering.  I will be discussing the waterproof version.

Today I'll be talking about the Detox & Renew Box.

Ipsy Glam Bag - February

Hi Beauties!

Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service.  For just $10 you get 4-6 deluxe sample size or full size beauty items.  These items are typically hair, skincare, and makeup products.  They can range from high end to affordable brands.  Everything comes in a pretty makeup bag that is different each month.

The theme for this month is "#ipsyLove" which is certainly festive for Valentine's month.  The makeup bag is very cute, solid pink on the back, and a colored diamond pattern on the front.

InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask* - Review

Hi beauties!

If you're a frequent reader of The Beauty Isle, you'll know that I love me a nice mud mask.  I just love the super clean feeling that a mud mask provides.  I was recently able to try the InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask Holistic Detoxifier & Purifer.

Sigma Beauty Sigmax Kabuki Kit - Review

You can have the most expensive high end makeup, but if your application tool isn't up to par, then the quality of your makeup won't shine through.

Before the holidays I purchased the Sigma Sigmax Kabuki Kit brush set.  This set includes 5 kabuki face brushes that aid in flawless makeup application.

This is how the package arrives.  There's almost always a free gift with purchase with Sigma and for this order I received a small shader brush.

Makeup Collection & Storage 2015 - Part 2 Mirrored Vanity

Hi beauties!

Last week was Part 1 of my updated makeup collection & storage where I featured all the makeup in my Ikea Alex dresser.  Today I bring you Part 2 which will feature my beloved mirrored vanity. 

As I stated in my 2013 makeup collection post, I found this vanity when I was looking for something similar to the Hayworth Vanity at Pier 1.  This Sei Mirrored Vanity at Amazon is just about half the cost and looks almost identical!  I did purchase the Hayworth Bench from Pier 1.  The large mirror is from Home Goods, and the lighted mirror is a Conair one from Amazon.

Makeup Collection & Storage 2015 - Part 1 Ikea Alex Dresser

Welcome to a brand new update of my makeup collection.  You can read my previous makeup collection and storage post here.  Makeup collection posts and videos are my absolute favorites to read/watch from beauty bloggers.  In this post I'll be sharing with you my current makeup collection that I store in the Ikea Alex dresser.  Over the last year and a half of blogging my makeup collection has multiplied by about 100X and I'm loving every minute of it!  I will make no apologies or explanations, I simply love makeup!

I recently purchased the Ikea Alex dresser to store my makeup.  I purchased the short wide version because I prefer the the wider drawers to be able to look at more of my makeup at once.

January Beauty Empties & Mini Reviews

Hi everyone!

Here are all the beauty products I used up in January.  As you can see I went through quite a few full size products and for some odd reason, this makes me extremely proud!  Anyone else feel that way when they finish a full size beauty product?
