Nume coupon

Does anyone ever use the coupon codes that come in the Birchbox or Ipsy bags? I have yet to take advantage of these coupons/promotions and I feel bad that it’s going to waste. If you are interested in snagging the coupon code for any offers I post, please email me at and I will send you the code.

This month’s offer:
$110 off Hair Styling Tools and Hair Extensions + free thermal pouch with purchase on
This offer expires on November 30, 2013

Ipsy May 2013

Of the several packages I get each month, Ipsy has been one of my favorite packages to receive. So far my bags have been satisfactory and (I feel like) each month it just gets better. Let’s take a look at May’s bag and see what goodies are in there.

This month’s theme: Spring fling!!!

The pouch for May’s bag is of a multicolor chevron design on the outside and a plain teal green on the inside.

Yaby Concealer refill in Vanilla.
At first sight I thought this was a Coastal Scents cream eyeshadow refill until looked closely and saw that it was slightly melted on the side.

Zoya Nail Lacquer in Blu

NuMe Finishing Serum

Pacifica Roll On Perfume in Tahitian Gardenia
I’m beyond ecstatic to get this scent. Many, many years ago I was smelling their solid perfumes and fell in love with the gardenia. I didn't buy it that day and thought I'd go back later to buy it, only to find that it was gone.

Juice Beauty Reflecting Lip Gloss in Fig

Oh! I also received my white bag with pink zipper lining from my April bag.

Not bad at all! What do you think?

Birchbox May 2013

Theme: Beauty Diaries.

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle

COOLA Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face

Joie Folle de Joie eau de parfum

Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner in Raina (Navy Blue)

And the joke of all jokes…. A Pilot acroball pen.

Really, Birchbox? A pen? I can find this in my office for free!

Also included is a one year subscription to Women’s Health Magazine. I was going to take up the offer until I read the fine print: “If for some reason you do not want the magazine, you can obtain a $9.99 refund by completing this card and sending it….”

I think I want my refund and it’s  time for me to reconsider Birchbox.

Ipsy April 2013

For all the pink lovers, this month is yours. Well, kind of. The theme is pretty in pink, and as you can assume, at least one of the products should be pink in color.

My items came in a white canvas flower bag. Ipsy sent several subscribers different bags, stating that the bag of the month was not up to standard and there would be a replacement included in May’s bag.

Sexy Hair  Soy Renewal Styling Treatment

Be A Bombshell blush in beach please

MICA Beauty Cosmetics Shimmer Powder in Earth

Sation Nail Lacquer in Of Corset I’ll Call You

With only four items in this month’s bag, I can say that I’m satisfied with the fact that 1) there are actual cosmetics included and 2) half of the products are full sized! Good job Ipsy!
