Crimes Of Beauty Nude Lip Vibes Wristlet Clutch Makeup Bag


I've got something super fun and super practical to share with you today.  I first became aware of the brand Crimes Of Beauty on social media when I'd watch coverage of various cosmetics expos around the country.  I thought their catchy tongue-in-cheek slogans were everywhere from cute to catchy to hilarious.  I have assumed that when I go to IMATS or TMS, I'd walk out with at least half their booth.  Today I have the item that I believe is the most ME.

I've been living on Nude Lip Vibes for a few years!  They're my favorites!!  I thought this wristlet was just adorable and the perfect little bag for me to go shopping in search of more.  Am I right, or am I right?

The wristlet measures 10" long by 6.5" wide and has a 7" wrist drop, (i.e. a 14" doubled over wrist attachment).  The faux leather zippered bag is a steal at just $20 and is perfect for running around town or flipping around.


If you'd like to use it as a makeup bag, just throw it into your larger purse to easily locate those lip products.

You can purchase any Crimes Of Beauty items on their site.  Follow them on Instagram and Facebook as well.

Isn't it just perfect?  Loooooove!

Now at Ulta Beauty, Tartan + Twine Plaid Brinton Alley Beauty Organizer Makeup Bag.


Today I want to show you a cute Tartan + Twine cosmetic bag to organize your latest purchases and gifts from the holidays. You can find it in store at Ulta Beauty where I just saw it on sale for $16.99.   It's the cutest plaid, a great size with lots of places to store stuff  and I know you need it!!

This bag is the perfect size to use as a clutch purse.  It will hold your day's makeup, your cell phone and your wallet, or if you use a large purse, you can slide this bag right in it.  It is a very sturdy woven nylon in red, white, blue and black.   It measures 8.5" long, 6" high and 2" in depth.  You can see it has the Tartan + Twine gold bar log on the front, which matches the zipper handles on the outside.

Cute, right?  But wait until you see the inside!!  The bag packs a bang for the buck!!!  It has two removeable pouches on the inside, a zippered pouch on one end and a sectioned holder for brushes, pencil liners or mascaras on the other end.

As much as I love the plaid on the outside, the inside is "all that" and so much more!!!  The inner removeable pouches snap into the bag with ease and can be removed just as well.  They measure 7" long by 5" high each.  Great sizes to remove and carry around with you if you don't want to take the whole bag.

I have put my Beauty Junkees kabuki brushes in the slotted end of the bag so you can see that there are two levels of slotted pouches.

The inside is a beautiful crimson.

The bag easily doubles as a clutch purse, if you want to run around with it.

This is a sweet bag.  You'll want to go to Ulta as soon as you can to look at it.  It's going to be so sturdy...you can just tell by the feel of it.  It has a lot of attention to detail and is put together well.  And it's CUTE!!!  I LOVE the plaid!!!

It truly will hold and organize many of your new products.  What do you think?  Could you see this in your purse or on your vanity?  What would you store in it?  Specific products or the day's makeup for touch ups?  I hope you all have had a great holiday season!  Here's to the New Year!

London Soho New York Disney Villans Maleficent Weekender Cosmetic Bag - Only At Walgreens


London Soho New York brought a variety of Disney characters to life in the form of a variety of cometic bags and organizers.  We've seen heros, princesses and now female villans displayed on the makeup bags sold only at Walgreens.  There is a choice of three different villans and six different sizes in this collection.  Today I have the Maleficent Weekender cosmetic bag, ($11.99), to share with you.

Walgreens, cosmetic


The Maleficent weekender bag is a great size, being 8.75" x 4" x 6".  You can, indeed, get a full weekend's supply of makeup in it.  The bag has a zippered top and two handles for carrying.  The sides, bottom, top and handles are vinyl while both the outer and inner sides are printed fabric.

Walgreens, cosmetics

This bag is so clever!!!  There is so much in the design of it, from the sillhouette of Maleficent in the background on the outside to the dragons and flames in red on the purple inside.

Walgreens, cosmetics, beauty

I really love the artwork.  It is true to Disney and it's interesting!!!  Each different bag in this series, as well as the previous series', have individual and creative designs both inside and out.  They are definitely collectible and every princess will be able to use them.  I'm going to put all my contour palettes in this bag.  It will hold those items that I haven't been sure where to fit into my makeup drawers, and it will be handy to finally have them all together.

Be sure to check out this bag and the other Soho items at Walgreens.

Isn't this a fun way to store your makeup?!?!?!  Who is your favorite Disney character?  Your favorite princess?  Your favorite villan?

December Ipsy Bag! Check It Out!!!

I always plan to show you my Ipsy Bag and I just haven't gotten it done at all this year...UNTIL NOW!!!  I have received some awesome items in the bags over the last year...including NYX blush, lipsticks, eyeshadows...Be A Bombshell blush...mind you, these are all full sized items...Sation nail polish, Zoya nail polish....AND MORE....

Here is the December 2013 Ipsy bag that I received.  I'm leaving my picture full sized so that you can drool as much as possible over the items.

The sides of my picture were cut off in the Instagram photo to fit IG better.  But here are some things that you need to know:  A year's subscription to Ipsy is only $110.   To purchase an individual bag is just $10, so there's a $10 savings with the yearly price....did I mention you are receiving full sized items in each bag?


First, there is the bag.  This one is pretty nice.  Most bags are bout 5" x 7".  Love the shiny black textured outside and the hot pink inside.  Love!!!

The lipstick I received is NYX Cosmetics in the color Cream, (#607).  It's a frosted nude beige.  I love everything NYX.  I started buying them many years ago on trips to Hawaii where Longs Drugs was the only place I could find the brand.  I loaded up on pigments and eyeshadows.....bringing it to present day, I'm now able to buy a limited amount of their items at Fred Meyer.  Our two local Targets just received the brand this month but they seem to have trouble re-stocking NYX and Pixi.  It's.....so........sloooooooow.  Anyway, when I am out of state, I purchase from the full line of NYX at Ulta and one of my favorite places to shop for NYX online is Cherry Couture.  They often have fantastic sales.  You should definitely check them out.  Don't forget to shop the brand's own website NYX Cosmetics.com.  Sign up for their email and receive 25% off your first order.

I met with the NYX team at Cosmoprof North America this past summer and the one before and I'm telling you the products that were introduced this year are just killer and wait until you see what's coming up in the spring.  I'll be writing that up soon to let you know what I've discovered.

Lastly, about the lipstick, in the end cap is a matching lipgloss.  NYX Cosmetics truly has great products at great prices and I've received many awesome NYX items in my Ipsy bags.   Happy, happy, happy. You are also able to purchase these items and more from the brands on the Ipsy website.  Each bag contains a postcard featuring the brands of the month and information about the special discounts which often come  from many of them.

Be A Bombshell is a brand I hadn't experienced or heard of until Ipsy.  At this point, I've received a many different types of items from them and I've enjoyed them all.  It's a good brand and I've been impressed with the quality.  This month's bag includes The One Stick.  My color is Girl Crush, a light pink with a hint of golden shimmer, which is absolutely perfect for me.  I think I'd prefer this on my lips rather than cheeks just because I personally am not fond of cream cheek color.  However, this color intrigues me and I'm going to give it a try.  It looks beautiful and would be great for a classic wintery etherial look.  Use it anywhere you like for a wisp of color.  Layer it to make more of a statement, if you like.

Next is NickaK NY nailpolish in the color NY112, a taupe toned milk chocolate color. This goes well with the NYX round lipstick Cream.  I've also met with the Nicka K team at CosmoprofNA last summer and had a great visit.  It wasn't quite that way this last July unfortunately but I do love this nail polish.  She's a beauty!

Let's talk Pop Beauty! I was thrilled to find a Bright Up Your Life eyeshadow trio in my bag.  Mine is called Smokin' Hot and is perfect for this time of year, or anytime really.  It contains three shades of grey, from light to dark, with varying amounts of shimmer from heavy to slight.  You can also find Pop Beauty at Ulta and on Ipsy.

The last item in my already stuffed Ipsy bag is Ardell Natural Lashes, number 120 Demi, in the color black.  These are light and wispy and come with glue for application.   You can find these at virtually any store.  I usually buy mine at Sally's or at Fred Meyer when they do a buy one, get one 1/2 off sale; which is currently running thru December 21st, if you live in the Pacific Northwest.

There you have it:  Full sized items for just $10 a month!!!  Isn't it amazing?  And if you sign up for a year, you basically get one month free!!!  A year is just $110!!  WORTH IT!!!  If you use my Ipsy link, I will receive a few points and eventually will be able to use them toward a purchase.  Check out what's on their website and see if you might be interested.  This is the first time I've blogged my Ipsy bag, (shame on me but it's really been a rough year).  I have been completely satisfied with every bag I've received since I re-joined last March.

And the final note for this blog post that I have to tell you:  Ipsy has a series of questions that you can answer and the bags are catered to your preferences.  Holy great idea, Batman!!!  And you can change those preferences any time that you want!
