POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 Review

Spring is wrapping up and summer is quickly approaching, which means it’s about time I shared my POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 review! If you’ve been a PBTT reader for any length of time, then you’ll know I’ve been a POPSUGAR subscriber for many, many years! I still have mixed feelings about their switch from monthly to seasonal boxes, but no matter what, I love seeing these boxes show up in my mailbox!

POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 Review

My Lab, Parker, loves checking out my boxes each season and looking to see if any of the items are for him! Unfortunately for him, none of the items this season are for pups! I did try to put the blue-light glasses on him and he was NOT having it! LOL

Popsugar Spring 2020 Beauty

Omorovicza – Magic Moisture Mist – Retail Value $95

I’m always so intrigued by the beauty items that POPSUGAR includes each season. They’re typically from high-ends brands I’ve never tried before.

This moisture mist certainly fits that bill! I had to enlist one of my friends to help me figure out what exactly a ‘moisture mist’ is for. She’s a beauty guru and let me know a few different ways this spray can be used. After trying a few different things, I decided that I like it best when sprayed right after my morning moisturizer and before I apply my foundation.

If you’re wary about face sprays, this one really is great! The mist is SO FINE, way better than some of the other options out there. If you’ve ever used a ‘chunky’ face spray, then you know how important and refreshing a nice mist can be!

Glow Recipe – Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask – Retail Value $42

I LOVE a good eye mask! Especially one that is clearly marked with its intended daypart. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been bitten by eye creams that are for daytime use and are not labeled as such.

If you’ve never experienced the horrible sleep (or complete lack thereof) that comes with using a daytime eye cream at night, you are extremely lucky. If you have experienced all that loveliness, then give this eye cream a try! It’s rich, a pretty green color, and doesn’t disrupt your beauty sleep with caffeine.

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Dishware

Canvas Home – Shell Bisque Cereal Bowls – Retail Value $66

If you know anything about me, then you probably know that I LOVE color! Light colors, dark colors, bright colors — all colors are for me!

Here’s a peak inside my dish cabinet. As you can see these new cereal bowls (pictured bottom right) fit right in!

Have you ever seen a happier kitchen cabinet? I sure haven’t!

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Lifestyle

Bluma Project – Luna Necklace in Sand – Retail Value $75

This season, we were able to choose what color necklace we wanted. Between blue and beige-blush, I clearly went with the more neutral option!

I don’t wear a ton of statement jewelry these days but figured that the more neutral option would be best. I’m definitely more likely to wear it if it’s easy to match with my clothes.

Unfortunately, we’ve been on quarantine since my box arrived, so I haven’t had a chance to take this necklace for a spin yet. I’m excited to pair it with a few things as soon as quarantine lifts though. I think it’ll look great with a black blouse and high-waisted jeans!

The Book Club – Anti Blue Light Lenses – Retail Value $30

I’ve been intrigued by blue-light glasses for some time now, so I was very excited to see these included in my box this season. POPSUGAR let us choose between four styles, and I went with a clear, cateye shape. I have a pair of prescription cateye glasses, which I adore, so I figured cateye would be fun for these too.

I wear prescription glasses almost everyday and always at work, so I knew when I tried these out, I’d have to wear my contacts. I have pretty dry eyes, so I typically only wear contacts on days when I’m in the water or doing a big activity.

After trying blue-light glasses, I don’t think I’m a big fan. It’s not the glasses’ fault though. The glasses are super cute and very nice, they just aren’t for me.

I found that my eyes get too dry while wearing my contacts to comfortably wear them for a full workday. Also, it’s quite distracting that the second you put the glasses on, your entire field of vision has a yellow tint. I understand that’s how the technology works, but I just can’t get behind that. I work with a lot of color in my life and am not comfortable wearing glasses that distort my perception of that color. Like I said though, that’s all on me and not the glasses. The glasses are adorable and functional if you have the right eyes!

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Crystals

Smudge Wellness – Glow Spell – Retail Value $49.50

Here’s another item that’s pretty but just not for me. I’m not a believer in crystals, tarot cards, etc., so I’m just not quite sure what to do with these.

I work with a girl who is all about crystals though, so I may check with her and see if she’s interested in these ones!

POPSUGAR Spring 2020 Special Extras

Yogi – Blackberry Apple Cider Digestive Awakening Tea – Special Extra

I love a good cup of tea! Especially caffeine-free tea before bed. There’s just something so soothing about it.

I was a little skeptical of the ‘apple cider vinegar’ aspect, but as long as you don’t sniff the tea bag too hard before steeping, you might never notice that it has apple cider vinegar in it. All in all, a very tasty before-bed tea option.

Clorox Scentiva – Disinfecting Wipes – Special Extra

Like I mentioned earlier, I received this box right after the mandatory quarantine started her in Florida. I don’t think POPSUGAR could’ve planned a better extra than Clorox wipes! How convenient that these showed up at my door right as all the stores were selling out of cleaning supplies!

I already have an open container of wipes, so I’m saving these to begin using as soon as my current container is empty. I’m most looking forward to the grapefruit one — citrus is one of my all-time favorite scents!

POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 Review

Well there you have it, my full POPSUGAR Must Have Spring 2020 review! This box has a total retail value of $357.50, which is remarkable! My favorite items this season (and Parker’s favorites too) are the eye cream and the cereal bowls!

Beauty Review: Smashbox

Hello everyone!

I have a fun, little beauty review to share with you all today!

A few days ago, I received a few new Smashbox beauty products from Influenster to sample and review.  I was provided these items for free but all opinions are my own.

Beauty Review: Smashbox - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box Contents:

  • Be Legendary Liquid Metal – Brains ‘N Bronze
  • Cover Shot Eye Palette – Matte

Beauty Review: Smashbox - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Be Legendary Liquid Metal – Brains ‘N Bronze – Retail Value $24

As you know, I love sampling lip products! When I saw this liquid lip in my box, I was very excited.

I haven’t tried very many liquid lipsticks, and I haven’t tried a single metallic lip product before.  So this liquid metal lipstick was quite intriguing for me! I have determined that I like the formula and the shine, but the actual color of this lipstick isn’t for me.

I have very fair skin and don’t see myself wearing this bronze shade too often.  I may be able to pull it off during a fancy, evening party but not any other time.  Unfortunately, I don’t go to too many fancy, evening parties!

Beauty Review: Smashbox - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Cover Shot Eye Palette – Matte – Retail Value $29

Eye shadow palettes are my other favorite to test out!  I went through a faze two years ago and bought at least 10 palettes over the course of a few months!  Excessive, I know!  During that time, I did, however, discover what kind of shadows I like and what kinds I don’t.

I’m usually drawn to champagne colored shimmer shadows.  They’re so pretty, natural, and versatile.  I have so many of them already, that it’s probably for the best that there wasn’t a single one in this palette.  Up until now, I really didn’t like matte shadows.  I found them more difficult to blend and not as exciting.

Since receiving this palette, I have discovered that I do indeed enjoy matte eye shadows!  Imagine that!

I love how this palette has two different looks to choose from.  There’s there browner tones of the left and the pink berry tones on the right.  I’ve used them both multiple times and prefer the browns.  That dark purple shadow on the right seems to get away from me and sometimes it looks like I’ve given myself a black eye! Whoopsie!!

Beauty Review: Smashbox - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

I’ve loved sampling these new releases from Smashbox this last week.  I’m definitely adding this matte palette into my weekly line up of eye shadows!

I’m going to try to find a time and place to wear the liquid lip.  Perhaps I’ll try mixing it with something a little lighter?

Have you tried either of these products before?

If so, what did you think of them?
