POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hello, everyone!

My POPSUGAR Must Have box has arrived! Yay! Yay! My POPSUGAR and PLAY! boxes actually arrived on the same day this month. Talk about some serious happy mail!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The September box has some fall-ish vibes with a darker color palette! I’m really loving it!

Box Contents:

  • Hudson + Bleecker – Bonjour Smartphone Wallet – Dusty Rose
  • Figs & Rouge – Hydra Prime Light Reflective Brightening Primer & Illuminator
  • Buji Baja by Hat Attack – Coco Flower Pin
  • Richer Poorer – Wool Striped Nora Sock – Charcoal & Black
  • Lipstick Queen – Black Lace Rabbit Cream Blush
  • Pipsnacks – Kettle Pipcorn

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hudson + Bleecker – Bonjour Smartphone Wallet – Dusty Rose – Retail Value $47

I received some travel bags from Hudson + Bleecker in a previous POPSUGAR box and absolutely love them! I use the makeup bag from that set every single time I travel!

I have a lot of wallets, and I’m happy to add this beauty to the rotation. Inside it has four card slots, one longer, money slot, and a large, open space that will fit a cell phone, lipgloss, and a few other small items. Basically, this wallet will fit all of the essentials. Perfection!

Figs & Rouge – Hydra Prime Light Reflective Brightening Primer & Illuminator – Retail Value $45

Primer (along with mascara) is one of those frequent fliers in the world of subscription boxes. I’m not complaining though! I love that I never need to buy mascara or primer! 🙂

I switch back and forth between illuminating and smoothing primers depending on the day. The Figs & Rouge primer looks rather dark when it comes out of the bottle but goes on very sheer. I’ve been using it for several days now and like the results. I’ll be using this primer until the bottle is empty!

 

Buji Baja by Hat Attack – Coco Flower Pin – Retail Value $17

This little, flower pin is just adorable! My winter coat is navy (and I don’t mix navy and black), so I need to figure out a cute place to pin this baby!

POPSUGAR suggests attaching it to your purse, coat (already ruled this one out), blouse, or bracelet.  I’ll have to see if it looks cute with one of my fall purses!

Richer Poorer – Wool Striped Nora Sock – Charcoal & Black – Retail Value $22

SOCKS!!! I love socks! Especially wool ones! Living in central Florida, wool socks are hard to come by. We rarely have days that are cold enough to warrant wool socks. But you can bet that I’ll be wearing these bad boys on the cold days we do have! 🙂

Lipstick Queen – Black Lace Rabbit Cream Blush – Retail Value $25

Two beauty items in one month? Yes, please!

I love the Lipstick Queen color-changing lipstick from the May box, so I was super pumped to see a color-changing blush in this month’s box.

The blush starts out black and then turns to a berry shade once it’s been applied to your skin. The intensity of the berry is determined by your skin’s pH. I love beauty products that adjust to each user!

Since this is a cream blush, I ‘ve been applying it with my fingers. I’ve been taking my middle finger, swirling it around the compact, dabbing the product on the apples of my cheeks, and then smoothing it out with my other fingers. I also use a stippling brush to further smooth out the “edges” of the blush on my cheeks.

This berry hue is going to be just perfect for fall! Next, maybe POPSUGAR will give me a lipstick to round out my fall, beauty look! 😉

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Pipsnacks – Kettle Pipcorn – Retail Value $4.99

You know what’s better than the POPSUGAR snacks each month? FULL-SIZE POPSUGAR snacks!! I absolutely love it when POPSUGAR sends a full-size package of their featured snack. That way, you can really enjoy the snack and figure out if it’s something you’d like to purchase again in the future.

You know what else I love? Kettle Corn! I love the sweet. I love the salty.  I just love it!

Also, that’s not a typo above. This product really is called “Pipsnacks” and “Pipcorn” because the corn is actually teeny tiny and pipsqueak size. So cute and fun to eat!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017

The total retail value for the September box is $160.99! That’s pretty fantastic!

I love all of this month’s products and have already started using half of them. The other half I will begin using very soon!

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!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – November 2014

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Julep Maven review!

Want to be a Julep Maven like me?  Click here to sign up!!

DSCN3467My November box came in two shipments.

Julep had some trouble with the Go Big mascara, so they sent it separately and added 950 Jules to my account!

DSCN3471Box contents:

  • Devon – Classic with a Twist – Slate Gray with Fuchsia Microshimmer
  • Shari – Classic with a Twist – Delicate Sweet Pea Crème
  • Go Big Volumizing Mascara
  • Coupon
  • Vanilla Caramel Cream Candies

DSCN3479November featured “The Friendsgiving Collection.”  I like the name, but I’m not sure what these colors have to do with Thanksgiving.

When I think Thanksgiving, I think orange, yellow, and pumpkins.  None of those characteristics are present here!

DSCN3477Shari – Classic with a Twist – Delicate Sweet Pea Crème

I don’t like this polish color at all.  It’s a very dull pink that would look horrible with my fair skin.  I try to stay away from white-based polishes.  I prefer brighter, richer colors.

Devon – Classic with a Twist – Slate Gray with Fuchsia Microshimmer

This polish is very pretty.  It looks a lot different when it’s applied to your nails than it does in the bottle.

I used it several days ago, and it dried a dark, pretty gray.  I didn’t notice any shimmer on my nails though.  Maybe I wasn’t in the right lighting?

DSCN3484Go Big Volumizing Mascara

I’m always willing to try a new mascara!

DSCN3491I’ve never used a mascara with such a small brush before. It was a little weird at first, but it seems to work nicely!

I’ll have to use it a few more times before I make a final decision on it!

DSCN3481

I love that Julep now includes a coupon in every box!

What did you get in your November Maven box?!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – September 2014

Hi everyone!

I’m back and ready to share my September Julep Maven box with you!

If you’re not a Maven and would like to be, click here!!

DSCN2967I love finding these little purple boxes in my mailbox!

DSCN2970Here’s my September box!! It came with two little hard candies!

DSCN2976

September’s theme is “Art Walk.”

This month featured a lot of pretty, muted nail colors.  Perfect for the fall!!

DSCN2986Nail Polish:

Quinn – Classic with a Twist – Charcoal Purple Satin

I’d say this polish is more navy and less purple.  Either way, it is absolutely perfect!! I used it last week and loved it!

Lupita – Classic with a Twist – Ripe Rhubarb Crème

This is the perfect pinky red! My nails are currently painted this color, and they are gorgeous (if I do say so myself!)

DSCN2990Plush Pout Lip Crayon – Cardinal Red Crème

I was daring this month and chose the red color!  I’m typically a pink girl, but I wanted a change!

DSCN2997The red is really nice!  I don’t know how often I’ll use it, but I’m glad to have it!

The moisture core is also a fantastic!

DSCN2979Once again, Julep has gifted us with a coupon!!  Just like the previous months, this code is good for two uses!

What did you get in your September box? Do you love it too?
