Vincent Longo!

6 Jul


Here I am sporting the Vincent Longo Duo Lip Pencil in Sangria that I got in July’s Sample Society box! I first put on Yes to Carrots Berry Lip Butter to add some moisture and make sure the lip pencil went on without any trouble. Next I lined my lips and once that was done I filled them in with the liner, making sure not to put on too much product (you don’t want liner to be layered on, just enough to blend in with the butter so that you can smooth it between your top and bottom lip and spread the color evenly!)


June’s Birchbox!

4 Jul

It finally arrived! My first one must have gotten lost in the mail, because they had to reship it, BUT it did get here, even if it did arrive late. This was my first Birchbox, and unfortunately I wasn’t really thrilled.


1. Ada Cosmetics Bronzer: I have very light skin, so I find bronzer usually looks a bit unusual on me, but I’m willing to try it out! It has a very beautiful pearly shimmer to it! Full size, $12.45

2. Borghese Crema Saponetta Cleansing Bar for Face and Body: Yes! another Borghese product. It smels terrific, I can’t wait to try it! Full size, $18.50

3. BVLGARI Omina Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray: I’m kind of upset that this was only half full! Ugh! It also smells like an older woman would wear it! MOM! Full size, $47-$64

4. theBALM cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen: One of the only products in this months box that I was actually hoping I’d receive. Well, I did, but I have to agree with what everyone is saying, it doesn’t really show up! Oh, well! Full size, $17

5. Band-Aid Cynthia Rowley Dress Up Band-Aids: These will probably last me 5-10 years, because I don’t really use bandaids, I just don’t think this should’ve been in the birchbox, but if I need a bad-aid, at least I have a few stylish ones! Pack of 20, $15


I wasn’t super stoked by this months box, but I’ve seen better boxes in different months so I’ll continue to subscribe and hope July’s box is better!

Birchbox is $10 a month and includes a points for rewards program where you earns points by buying boxes, reviewing products and referring friends. Every 100 points is equal to $10 towards their products!

July’s Sample Society Box

3 Jul


Wow, that got here fast! They told me it shipped yesterday! This is my first Sample Society box and there is actually only one product I wont be using (anti aging cream! I’m a bit young for it)

1. Vincent Longo Duo Lip Pencil in Sangria & White Glimmer: Wow! full sized product! I’ve never used a lip pencil, but I’m glad to try one out. I’m not sure about the white lip pencil though, seems a bit odd to have on lips!

2. Sisley Hydration Intense Anti-Age Hydration: Allure doesn’t personalize yet…obviously! I’m 20, what would I need anti aging for!? This product goes straight to mom!

3. Vbeaute Nourishing Repair Eye Creme: So, apparently this is for crows feet? Again, to mom this goes!

4. Borghese Body Creme: I am slowly becoming addicted to their products! The smell is outrageously wonderful! The feel of it is very silky. Also, It’s a very large sample. Consider me happy!

5. Jouer Moisturzing Tint in Pearl: I actually just requested a sample of this from their company! I’m excited to try this, I’ve heard great things.

3 out of 5, not too shabby!

Sample Society boxes are $15.00 a month, they come with an Allure subscription, a mini mag in their box, and a $15 gift code off of $50 on the Beauty Bar website.

My First Julep Maven Box!

21 Jun

It’s been a pretty great mail day for me (my favorite kind of day, in fact) Anyways, I previously wrote how you can get a $.01 1 month beauty subscription to Julep Maven by entering the code COLOR2012 at checkout. Well, I did that about 2 weeks ago and am now enjoying my rewards!

My box was “Classic with a Twist” which I think describes a good portion of my personality….when I’m calm ;D The packaging was pretty cute, everything but the two separators were in the pink bag that’s off to the side and tied up in a black bow (with the separators underneath.) Oh, man, diving into it was like Christmas 🙂

First off, I’m so excited to get this! I have needed some for a long while now and I always forget to buy them….whatever they’re called? I haven’t seen them in anyone else’s Julep box either, so I guess I got lucky 🙂 Yay, extras!

I always neglect to put lotion on my feet! Now that I have some proper exfoliater/moisturizer, I’m going to actually remember to do it!! You’re supposed to put it on every night (and I assume put cotton socks on to let it soak in, which I do anyways when I moisturize) i think i’m going to love this product!

This first color is called Niecy. “A bright pink creme for sunny days” I’m very happy to get this color because the only pink I have is like…neon. So this is a total win for me 🙂

This second color is called Susie. “Delicious mint green creme. Go for it!” I’m a little mixed about this one. I LOVE mint, but I already bought a mint green nail polish a week ago from Sally Hansen (which I have on my nails in this picture). Although, the one that I bought a week ago is wayyy too light, so if the new one is more true to the color in the bottle, I’ll have a new mint green polish to go to! 🙂

Overall, was it worth 1 cent? YES. Is that even worth questioning? no.

I’m actually considering getting another box with some of the money I just made, but I can’t decide! What do you think, should I try another month?
