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!)


Sample Society/Birchbox review

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.
