ISH Lip Statement Palette Review

IMG_3381

Recently I was checking out some videos by one of my favorite YouTubers – Alex Garza – and she mentioned that she did a collab with FabFitFun’s in house makeup line, ISH. For those that don’t know, ISH stands for I’m Smoking Hot. I thought the name was super clever. But Alex went on to talk about a product she worked on, the Lip Statement Palette. It is a palette full of lipsticks that can easily be blended together. I own nothing like this, so I decided to track it down and pick it up.

thredUp Review

IMG_3401

I don’t know about you, but I love shopping for clothes online. I am always looking for new sites to try because I like to have an eclectic wardrobe. The hard part is though that if I’ve never shopped a certain site, I don’t know how things run or if it is legit or not. I’m pretty brave though with these things, and make sure to study return policies or reviews of the company beforehand. Recently I had bee hearing a lot about thredUp, a company that claims to be the easiest way to shop and buy high-quality second-hand clothes. While I can’t speak for the sales part (I’m selling my clothes on Poshmark at the moment) I can give you an honest review as a buyer. For the record, all of these opinions are my own, and I’m not working with the company on this review.

CO2 Lift Mask Review

IMG_3303

I love following influencers on social media. I am one of those incredibly impressionable millennials who purchases something based on the suggestion of something I see on Instagram. I don’t consider this to be a bad thing at all – this is one of my favorite things about social media (although I imagine my wallet would beg to differ…). Recently I saw a few people I follow brag about the CO2 Lift and I knew I had to try it.

Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation Review

IMG_3302

Like most people who follow Tarte, I got that exciting email that they were releasing the Shape Tape Foundation. Considering I absolutely love their concealer, I just knew I’d have to try their foundation. I ordered the foundation almost the minute it came out. It comes in two versions, matte and hydrating. I picked up the matte in light neutral.

Perricone MD Cold Plasma+ Face Review

IMG_3240.jpg

Recently I was sent a complimentary sample of Perrincone MD’s Cold Plasma+ Face moisturizer for testing purposes. I was SO excited because I’m a big fan of the brand, and I wanted to give this product a try. There are many claims listed in the literature, and I haven’t been using it long enough to say if I think they’re all true, however, I am a happy camper with what I’ve experienced so far.

Blogmas Days 14-20 Subscription Box Madness

So I’ve failed my goal to blog daily – but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been on my mind! Lately my doorbell has been ringing with all my Black Friday purchases.

Thanks to Black Friday I scored so many deals, and wound up resubscribing to many of the boxes I once loved. Who doesn’t love a deal?!

In the madness I am now receiving the Gluten Free Love with Food box, PopSugar Must Have, Beautycon BFF, and the Rachel Zoe Box of Style.

Is it bad that I loved them all this month?

The Beautycon BFF box was curated by DulceCandy and had the following products:

-Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Tapered Highlighting Brush

-Rimmel London The Only 1 Surprise Lipcolor

-Skinvolve Body Karate Cream

-Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

This was a mixed bag, but overall pretty good. I have several of these products already, but the new ones I’m exited to try!

The PopSugar Must Have box contained:

Odeme Catchall + Ring Dish

Baublebar Snowfall Pendant

Mane Message Date Night Bobby Pins

Winky Lux Lip Pill in Bunny

Sisters Gourmet Baker’s Dozen Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

Dessange Professional Hair Luxury Color Restore Color Protecting Top Coat Serum

Several of the items in the box will be great for gifting this season!

The Rachel Zoe and Love with Food boxes don’t come with cards, but I’ve included photos of them below. The Gluten Free Love with Food is literally the box I look forward to the most, as it brings forward new brands I’ve never tried. The Rachel Zoe box is new to me, but the necklace they included this season, is LOVE!

Love With Food Gluten Free Review – February 2016

I may have said this before – but I LOVE love with food. I wait patiently each month for my gluten free box to arrive at my door. They have such great brands that I can always find something to enjoy in each box. This month was no different. I literally tore open one of the items the second I saw it. Note the chip clip on the popcorn…

Birchbox January 2016

IMG_2999.jpg

Finally – my last subscription box arrived! I will always love Birchbox, even when I don’t always love my box each month. I’ve come to realize that having small sample sized items are GREAT for travel, and since I’ve been doing a lot of that lately, these have definitely come in handy.

I have to say – I adore the theme (and the color of the box) this month. I selected “ambition” to be my word for 2016. I want this to be the year I achieve some serious goals!

This month the items in my box are just OK. I laughed when I opened it because there were two products (shampoo and conditioner) from Beautiful Nutrition. In my Glossybox I just received a bottle of toner from the same brand – so this brand must be blowing up the beauty market. I’m curious to give it a shot! See what else I got in my box below:

Beautiful Nutrition Grapefruit Detox Shine Repair Shampoo

Beautiful Nutrition Grapefruit Detox Shine Repair Conditioner

Cargo Swimmables Shadow Stick – Coral Reef

derma e* Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid

Peripera Peri’s Tint Water – Strawberry Juice

What did you guys get in your box this month?

Glossybox January 2016

FullSizeRender 43.jpg

I’ve seem to hit that point in the month where I finally have received nearly all of my subscription boxes. There is nothing I love more than coming home to a fun box and checking out all the new products in these curated boxes.

Over the past year I’ve had a love – hate relationship with Glossybox. I love that the products are full sized or deluxe sized. Sometimes though the products are all misses for me. But I missed getting it, and took advantage of a deal on Gilt recently, so I’m locked in for the next 6 months.

This month was interesting. I don’t love everything. But I’m willing to try it all out!

Products in this months box:

Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment

MeMeMe Lip Glide in Playful Peach

-417 Foot Nourishing Cream

Royal Apothic Cream Creme to Go

Emite Make Up Diamond Heart
