Eyeshadow 101

The featured makeup product for the October box are these cream-to-powder eyeshadow sticks!

I love the other cream-to-powder Julep product I have, so I was super excited when they came out with these!

IMG_5552Champagne Shimmer

Each stick comes with the shadow on one end and a smudger on the other.

This shadow color is a great neutral!  The champagne color is so pretty and perfect for day or night!

They’re a little hard to use with my daily eyeshadow primer, so I’ve been going without on the days that I wear them.  Other than that, they are great!

IMG_5555Taupe Shimmer

I decided to add this shadow on to my box this month.

I like to use this darker shadow in my crease and use the lighter on my lid.  They look very pretty together!

The smudger is great for making sure the shadow isn’t too dark in my crease!

IMG_5534Jocelyn – Classic With a Twist – Cranberry Shimmer with Holographic Microglitter

I have this polish painted on my fingers right now, and it’s so pretty!

It’s a little dark for the Florida weather right now, but in a few weeks, it should be perfect!

Arielle – Classic With a Twist – Smoked Fig Crème

This polish is also pretty and fall-y!

I think it’s going to look great on my toes!

IMG_5545Here’s this month’s quote and coupon!

Free polish! Wooo!!

I love the October Maven box!  The products are awesome and so are the colors!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – September 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

IMG_5062To receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_5065Box Contents:

  • Hudson+Bleecker – Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio
  • Kris Nations – “XO” Stud Earrings
  • Too Faced Cosmetics – Brow Envy
  • Briogeo Rosarco – Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray
  • NCLA – So Rich Vitamin-E Enriched Cuticle Oil
  • Nourish Snacks – Almond to Cherries

IMG_5079Hudson+Bleecker – Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio – Retail Value $42

I love this travel bag set!  It comes with a TSA-friendly clear pouch and then two drawstring bags for shoes and intimates.

IMG_5082I’ll probably end up using the clear bag for sunscreens and the two patterned bags for my shoes.  I absolutely hate it when the bottoms of my shoes touch my clothes in my suitcase, so these are perfect for me!

IMG_5091Kris Nations – “XO” Stud Earrings – Retail Value $35

I love these earrings, and the packaging is pretty great too!  The little jar is glass not plastic, which makes the packaging that much nicer!

These would be perfect for a gift, so I think I’m going to save them!

IMG_5071Too Faced Cosmetics – Brow Envy – Retail Value $39

I absolutely LOVE Too Faced products, so I was pretty excited when I saw that they were going to be featured in the September box.  I just wish they’d given out an eye shadow palette instead of this brow kit.

I know eyebrows are all the rage right now, but I would’ve preferred a different product.

IMG_5074The palette comes with two shades of brow powder, a highlighter, setting wax, tweezers, a brush, and a spoolie.

I don’t ever do anything besides pluck my brows, so I won’t be getting much use out of this product. 🙁

IMG_5088Briogeo Rosarco – Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray – Retail Value $20

I love trying new leave-in conditioners, so I was pretty excited when I saw this in my box!

This conditioner is way more watery than I expected and more watery than other leave-in conditioners I’ve used in the past.  I feel like I have to use a ton of it to get the silky texture I’m used to getting with other conditioners.

Even though it’s watery, it smells pretty great!

IMG_5076NCLA – So Rich Vitamin-E Enriched Cuticle Oil – Retail Value $18

I haven’t used many cuticle products in the past, so I’m not exactly sure what this is going to do for me.

I’ve been using it for several days now.  I haven’t seen any results, but it smells pretty great!!

IMG_5085Nourish Snacks – Almond to Cherries – Retail Value $2

This little snack looks awesome!

I love almonds and cherries, so it is perfect for me!

I’m going to pack it in my backpack and take it to class with me tomorrow!

IMG_5065The September POPSUGAR box has a total retail value of $156!  How awesome is that?!

Allure Beauty Box Review – September 2015

Hi everyone!

IMG_4918_2It’s time for my monthly Beauty Box review!

IMG_4920_2Each box comes with a magazine, which gives more information on the featured products.

IMG_4923The September box came with seven products!  Wow!  That’s the most I’ve ever received in an Allure box!

Box Contents:

  • Tangle Teezer
  • Pixi by Petra – Glow Tonic
  • Alterna – Replenishing Moisture Milk
  • Erno Laszlo – Firmarine Bar Soap
  • Jane Iredale – Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener
  • Soap & Glory – Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss
  • Kaplan MD – Cellular Rejuvenating Concentrate

IMG_4925Tangle Teezer

I was pretty skeptical when I saw this in my box.  I don’t typically like the hair tools that I receive.

Funnily enough, I absolutely love this thing!! It works SO well and doesn’t break my hair at all!

I do have one complaint though.  I’ve been using it when I get out of the shower, and between my soaking wet hair and my leave in conditioner, the Tangle Teezer can get pretty slippery!! I’ve dropped it on a few occasions!  Oh well! I’ll quickly get over that!  It cuts my hair combing time in half when I get out of the shower!  That’s amazing!!!

IMG_4928_2Pixi by Petra – Glow Tonic

I’ve heard great things about this product!  My friend, Lindsey, was telling me that it’s very similar to the Clinique Clarifying Lotion that I use everyday.  Since it’s just like my everyday product, I’m going to save this for the next time I travel!

IMG_4942Alterna – Replenishing Moisture Milk

I love this conditioner!  It works really well and isn’t too heavy!

I’ve received other Alterna products in subscription boxes before and they’re all great!

This is the conditioner I was using when I kept dropping my Tangle Teezer!  These two must be in cahoots! 🙂

IMG_4933_2Erno Laszlo – Firmarine Bar Soap

This is the cutest bar of soap I have ever seen!  It’s tiny!

I’m going to save this product for travel as well!  It will fit perfectly into my travel toiletries case!

IMG_4935_2Jane Iredale – Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener

The mini magazine says this primer is supposed to smell like fresh orange juice.  I don’t smell the oranges.  I smell a mixed drink!

I’ve used this primer several times, and I like it.  I just don’t like it as much as the Benefit Porefessional I use everyday.

IMG_4932Soap & Glory – Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss

When I first put this lip gloss on, I liked it.  The color wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible either.  About 10 minutes after applying the gloss, the burning began!  I understand the way plumping lip glosses work, but the burning was so bad (and not worth the results) that I had to wipe the lip gloss off!

I definitely won’t be using this in the future, but I will see if any of my friends would like to try it!

IMG_4939Kaplan MD – Cellular Rejuvenating Concentrate

This is another item that I’ll be using for travel.  I already use a serum at night, so instead of hauling my large jar with me when I travel, I’ll just take this mini one!

IMG_5025_2Aside from the burning lip gloss, I’d say that this month’s Allure Beauty Box was a success!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – September 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Maven review!

IMG_4715If you’d like to receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_4739Box Contents:

  • Alison – Classic with a Twist – Sweet Almond Soft Focus
  • Rayma – Classic with a Twist – Italian Plum Crème
  • Julep – Signature Crème
  • Light On Your Lips – Wink – Tea Rose Crème

IMG_4729Alison – Classic with a Twist – Sweet Almond Soft Focus

I was pretty skeptical of Alison when I first saw the polish color.  After testing it out on one of my fingernails, I think it’ll be a great neutral for me!

I’m going to paint it on my fingernails when I get some free time tomorrow!

Rayma – Classic with a Twist – Italian Plum Crème

This is a beautiful polish color!  Unfortunately, it’s a little too dark and fally for Florida right now!  I’ll definitely be using it in a month or two though!

IMG_4721Julep – Signature Crème

Julep included their new signature crème polish in my box this month!  How nice! 🙂

This pretty purple polish is the same exact shade of the boxes they ship out each month! That’s rather clever of them!

IMG_4731Light On Your Lips – Wink – Tea Rose Crème

I love Julep’s lipsticks, so I was super excited when I saw that they were launching some new fall colors for September!

I was really busy during the Maven Window a few weeks ago and didn’t carve out enough time to pick out a lipstick shade.  I ended up with the Classic with a Twist default shade and it doesn’t quite work for me. 🙁

IMG_4736I have very fair skin, and this lipstick is quite nude.  I’m not sure if you can tell how nude it is in the picture but it’s super nude.  When I put it on, my lips just kind of disappear!  That’s not good!  I’ll see if any of my friends want it!

The next time a Maven Window comes around, I’m going to stop everything I’m doing and pay attention to the makeup shades!!

IMG_4717Lastly, we have this month’s quote and coupon!

Free polish?! I’m about it! 🙂

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – August 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

IMG_4287To receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_4353Each box comes with a card that gives details on everything included in the box.

IMG_4355Box Contents:

  • American Colors – Mediterranean Plaid Scarf
  • Royal Apothic – Tea Balm Firming Eye Treatment
  • Meri Meri – Toot Sweet Pink Stripe Napkins
  • Southern Culture – Shortstacks Pancake & Waffle Mix
  • Happy Jackson – Yay Lunch! Lunch Box
  • Pastel – Best Day Ever Mug
  • MyYogaWorks – 3-Month Trial
  • Folgers Iced Café – Caramel Macchiato Flavored Coffee Drink Concentrate

I apologize for the weird lighting in all of these photos!  I don’t know what was going on when I took these pictures!

IMG_4347American Colors – Mediterranean Plaid Scarf – Retail Value $79

I can’t tell you how much I love this scarf!  The double-sided patterns make it so fun!

I can’t wait to wear it in the fall!  I have two quilted, puffer vests (one navy and one pink) that will look fantastic with it! 🙂

IMG_4328Royal Apothic – Tea Balm Firming Eye Treatment – Retail Value $36

I always enjoy getting eye creams in subscription boxes.  At this rate, I won’t have to buy another eye cream until 2016! How awesome is that?!

I’ve used this cream for a few days now, and haven’t noticed anything that sets it apart from other eye creams I’ve tried.  That’s okay though!  All eye creams seem roughly equivalent to me.

Product packaging is really important to me, and this product delivers!  The little box and the purple container are so cute!  I love it!

IMG_4332Meri Meri – Toot Sweet Pink Stripe Napkins – Retail Value $5.95

I don’t have a use for these napkins right now, but I’m sure I’ll use them at some point!  They’re too cute to let go to waste!  I’m going to save them for a special occasion!

IMG_4335Southern Culture – Shortstacks Pancake & Waffle Mix – Retail Value $7.99

This pancake mix is soooooo cute! I can’t get over the adorableness!!

These are birthday cake flavored!  I’m sure they’ll be super delicious!  I don’t want to open them yet though.

I don’t want to waste them on just myself.  I’ll have to invite some friends over and have a pancake and waffle party!

IMG_4319Happy Jackson – Yay Lunch! Lunch Box – Retail Value $10

When I saw this in my box, I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I do!  It’s super cute and super handy!  I love it!!

IMG_4323It’s so easy to put your sandwich and a few snacks in this box and then throw it in your bag.

It’s great for when you don’t want to bring your entire lunchbox with you!

I’ve been using it for the last few days and have gotten quite a few compliments! 🙂

IMG_4341Pastel – Best Day Ever Mug – Retail Value $12

I’ve recently started drinking coffee, so this mug is perfect!

It’s simple and cute!  No complaints from me!

IMG_4350MyYogaWorks – 3-Month Trial – Retail Value $45

This card is good for a 3-month trial on myyogaworks.com.  The website features over 700 online classes.

This is really great for people who enjoy online workout classes.  I probably won’t end up using this though.  I’m rather forgetful and am not that big on exercise. 🙁

IMG_4330Folgers Iced Café – Caramel Macchiato Flavored Coffee Drink Concentrate – Retail Value $4.99

This product really makes iced coffee easy!  All you do is add a few squirts to a glass of milk, and you’re done!

I think it tastes pretty good, but I would prefer regular iced coffee.  I will definitely be using this when I don’t have time to brew coffee though!

IMG_4295The August box has a total retail value (not including the yoga trial) of $155.93!  That’s awesome!

I’ve already gotten quite a bit of use out of some of these products, and I know I’ll get even more use out of the rest of them in the future!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – July 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have subscription box review!

IMG_3493To receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_3496Box Contents:

  • Henri Bendel – Signature Stripe Canvas Dopp Kit
  • Supergoop! – Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50
  • Sorial – Card Case
  • PopDental – Portable Toothbrush
  • Yes To – Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes
  • The Good Bean – Fruit & No-Nut Bar
  • Hallmark – Signature Greeting Cards

IMG_3517Henri Bendel – Signature Stripe Canvas Dopp Kit – Retail Value $28

I absolutely love this makeup bag!  It’s so cute and super functional!

IMG_3520I love that it opens and stays open.  So handy!

It’s also a great size.  Not too big and not too small!

I also love coupons! 🙂

IMG_3503Supergoop! – Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 – Retail Value $28

I received a travel size of this same setting mist in my Allure Beauty Box this month.  I love the spray, so I’m completely okay with the double!  I especially don’t mind that this is the full size!

I just ran out of setting spray, so this mist couldn’t have come at a better time!  The mist is really fine and smells great!

I especially love that this setting mist has SPF in it!  That’s great for my fair skin!

IMG_3512Sorial – Card Case – Retail Value $28

This card case is so cute!  It’ll be perfect to slip into all my small handbags!  I currently wrap my ID and debit card in a hair tie when I go out.  This card case will allow me to eliminate that semi-ghetto practice! 🙂

Another coupon! YAY!!

IMG_3505PopDental – Portable Toothbrush – Retail Value $19.99

This toothbrush is so cute! It’ll be perfect for traveling!  I typically leave my electric toothbrush at home when I go on trips and travel with a manual.  Now I won’t have to!

IMG_3513Yes To – Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes – Retail Value $5.99

I’ve tried lots of facial wipes in the last few years. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any that don’t irritate my face.  These ones are no different.  After using them, by face burned a little. 🙁

The packaging is so cute and the scent is so familiar.  I can’t quite place it though!

I’m going to see if any of my friends can use these.

IMG_3509The Good Bean – Fruit & No-Nut Bar – Chocolate Berry – Retail Value $1.99

I was crazy hungry when I got my box from the mail, so right after I took a picture, I devoured this bar!

I think I would’ve preferred the bar if there would’ve been some nuts or something in it.  The bar just tasted too much like cardboard. 🙁

IMG_3524Special Extra – Hallmark – Signature Greeting Cards – Retail Value $4.99, $4.99, and $5.99

You can never have to many greeting cards!  These were a great addition to the box!

IMG_3528Each box came with a different assortment of cards.

I got a wedding card, a birthday card, and a blank card.

My brother is getting married soon, so perhaps he and his wife will get the wedding card! 😉

IMG_3501Aside from the facial wipes and the fruit bar, I’m very pleased with this month’s box!

The total retail value is $127.94!  That’s not too shabby!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – June 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review! IMG_0672To receive fun goodies each month like I do, click here!! IMG_2421I didn’t have enough self-control to avoid the spoilers for this box! Whoopsie! 🙂 IMG_2522Each box comes with a card full of details on each product. IMG_2422Box Contents:

  • Spongellé – Boxed Flowers – Fleur en Boîte
  • Yogitoes – Peacock hBand
  • Pacifica – Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette
  • Quay Australia – Mandate Sunglasses
  • Judy Blume’s In the Unlikely Event
  • SNAP Infusion – SUPERCANDY
  • Sweet & Spark – $30 Gift Card

IMG_2494Spongellé – Boxed Flowers – Fleur en Boîte – Retail Value $16

I absolutely LOVE this body wash infused sponge!  It smells amazing and the flower shape is adorable!

The sponge is a little rough, which makes it perfect for exfoliating!

I have a feeling that I will continue to use the sponge even after all the soap washes out! IMG_2502Yogitoes – Peacock hBand – Retail Value $4

I think this headband is adorable! I never wear exercise headbands though, so I was a little self-conscious when I wore it to the gym.  My friend, Lindsey, said I looked cute, but I’m still on the fence!

I’ll have to give it another try and see if I like it better the second time! IMG_2510Pacifica – Enlighten Eye Brightening Shadow Palette – Retail Value $14

I love eyeshadow palettes, but unfortunately, only one of these shadow colors works for me.

I like the shadow on the far left, but the others are just too dark or oddly colored for my skin tone.

I’ll have to see if these shadows work for any of my friends! IMG_2505Quay Australia – Mandate Sunglasses – Retail Value $45

Like most girls, I can always use another spare pair of sunglasses!

I was surprised with how lightweight these are, and I love that they came with their own protective case. IMG_2516Judy Blume’s In the Unlikely Event – Retail Value $27.95

I’ve read the plot summary several times, and this sounds like a good beach read (or just a laying on the couch read!)

I’ve been reading on a Kindle for almost five years now, so I have a feeling my hand will cramp when I start reading this book!  So pathetic, but it will! IMG_2497SNAP Infusion – SUPERCANDY – Retail Value $4 

I already ate the green, sour pack, and the candies were very yummy!

I really like the idea of a “healthy” candy! IMG_2487Sweet & Spark – $30 Gift Card

I don’t typically like it when my subscription boxes come with gift cards, but this gift card is the exception!

Sweet & Spark is online site that sales curated vintage jewelry.  How cool is that?!

I’ve found several pieces that I like, so I need to hurry up and purchase one before they sell out.  There’s only one of each item, so it’s very possible that they could sell out of everything I like if I don’t act quickly! IMG_2431Aside from the funky eyeshadow colors, I’d say that June was a hit!

The total retail value of this box is $140.95!  That’s a great value!

I can’t wait to see what July has to offer!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – May 2015

IMG_0458“Set Sail” is the theme for May.  There are lots of fun colors featured this month!

IMG_0428Box Contents:

IMG_0432Amanda – Classic with a Twist – Pink Dahlia Crème

You can never have too many pink nail polishes!  Amanda is perfect for summer and every other season too!  I can definitely see myself wearing this polish all the time!

Shelby – Classic with a Twist – Navy Ink Crème

This polish is very pretty! I think I’ll paint it on my toes soon!

Moni – Boho Glam – Coastal Blue Crème

Moni is so fun for summer!  I have it painted on my fingernails right now, and I love it!  It’s very bright and very cheerful!

IMG_0437Feels Like Velvet Full-Coverage Eye Shadow Duo – 5th Avenue & Broadway

I love eye shadow, so I was super excited when I found out that it was the featured beauty product this month!  I was so excited that I bought two!

5th Avenue & Broadway is perfect for everyday wear.  My favorite eye shadows are champagne colored, so this duo is perfect for me!

IMG_0444Feels Like Velvet Full-Coverage Eye Shadow Duo – Coconuts & Cabanas

Coconuts & Cabanas is much more pigmented than 5th Avenue & Broadway, so it’ll be better for nighttime wear.

I wasn’t expecting this shadow to be more pigmented than the other one, so I got it all over the place the first time I applied it!  Whoopsie daisy!

IMG_0447It’s Balm (Plush Pout) – Fuchsia Berry Crème

I loved the Plush Pout I received in my September box, so I decided to get another one this month.

IMG_0449I went with fuchsia berry this month, and I love it!  The color is fantastic and super long wearing!

IMG_0464Doublestep Foot Treatment & Friction Stick

Julep has a promotion that if you add on three or more items to your monthly box, you receive a free gift.  Since I added on three items this month, I got a gift!

I’m a religious user of Band-Aid Friction Block, so I know I’ll get lots of use out of this product.

I’ve been using it for it’s treatment benefits for the last few days, and so far, it’s working great!

IMG_0461Here’s the coupon code and quote for May.

As usual, the coupon is good for two uses and expires May 31st.

Allure Sample Society Review – April 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Sample Society review!

IMG_9698A bright, red box to brighten my day!

IMG_9700This mini-mag is the first thing I see when I open my box.

It has details on each product and an explanation of why the Beauty Directors picked them to be featured in the box.

IMG_9703Box Contents:

  • Mt. Sapola –  Lavender-Chamomile Body Lotion
  • Jane Iredale – Just Kissed Lip Plumper – Rio
  • Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional
  • Bumble and Bumble – Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil
  • Marc Jacobs – Daisy Dream
  • Illume – Tonka Noir Candle

IMG_9721Mt. Sapola –  Lavender-Chamomile Body Lotion

I just applied this lotion, and I don’t think it’s for me.  The scent is VERY strong!

The curators are aware of the strong scent though!  I read the mini-mag and laughed when the writer very bluntly said that this product is not for everyone!  I’ll see if any of my friends like it!

Apart from the scent, I really like this lotion.  It is very quick to absorb and doesn’t leave a residue.

IMG_9715Jane Iredale – Just Kissed Lip Plumper – Rio

This is the smallest lipstick sample I have ever received!  The canister is super small but also super cute!

Even though the cannister small, there is a lot of product inside.

When applied, there is a little bit of a tingle but not too much!

Rio is a light brown shade and isn’t quite for me.  I prefer rosier colored lipsticks.

IMG_9713Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional

I use POREfessional everyday, so I am very pleased to receive this in my box!

I’m quite surprised with how many Benefit products I’ve received in subscription boxes recently!  I got some in my last Sample Society box and in my last POPSUGAR Must Have.  No complaints from me though!

IMG_9726Bumble and Bumble – Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil

I have thin hair so I’m a little worried about adding oil to my hair.  After reading the mini-mag though, I have decided to give this oil a try!

The mini-mag says this oil is good for all hair types.  It also says that it smooths flyaways.  I have quite a bit of those, so I will definitely be giving this a try in the near future!

IMG_9729Marc Jacobs – Daisy Dream

I’ve gotten a sample of this perfume somewhere else before.  I can’t seem to remember where though.  Perhaps it was a Sephora freebie? Or maybe Ulta?

I like the smell of Daisy Dream when it’s sprayed into the air, but I don’t think I’d like it if it was sprayed on me.

I’ve never worn perfume before, and I would be quite overwhelmed if I started.

IMG_9722

Illume – Tonka Noir Candle

I absolutely LOVE this candle!  It smells great and the packaging is adorable!

I can’t find a specific scent anywhere on the package but the Allure mini-mag says their are notes of mandarin, plum, rose, jasmine, tonka bean, musk, sandalwood, and Madagascar vanilla.  That’s a lot of notes!  All I can say is that it’s a calming and soothing scent!

I definitely wouldn’t mind a full-size of one of these candles!

IMG_9710My second month of Allure Sample Society was great!

I can’t wait to see what month three has in store for me!
