FabFitFun – The Winter Box for 2016

Related image

I am absolutely loving this FabFitFun subscription box. The full size products that come in each box are absolutely wonderful. That’s right – no more tiny tubes of shampoo and conditioner just hanging around for months on end. One person couldn’t possibly use the amount of small products I’d get from Sephora Play! and Ipsy (both of which I’ve cancelled). I did enjoy those subscriptions, but I felt like I was throwing away money for shit that I just wasn’t using. With FabFitFun, I can at least give the product a real try. I’m also pretty excited that it’s not all beauty related. Last month’s box was that adorable black travel mug with a cute saying on it: Joy comes in the morning. I actually really like using that cup for work mornings! Anyway – Let’s dive into this months box!

Play! by Sephora August review!

Play! by Sephora

Play! by Sephora

 

Good afternoon, everyone!

Well, it has been quite some time since I sat at this keyboard and decided to get a blog post up. I really need to get better at this whole blogging thing. It really is something I enjoy, but you all know how it is.. Life get’s in the way and sometimes it’s just not possible to get creative.

I decided my first post back would be something on my Play! by Sephora box that I got this weekend. Let’s dive right in!

NYX Wanderlust Go To Palette review and swatches!

NYX Wanderlust Go To Palette

Big news. Major news. OMG NEWS!

My local CVS finally revamped their makeup/beauty section. For the longest time it was the same stuff each week. On Thursday I stopped there for milk and – erm – $60 later I was the proud owner of some new-to-me items.  The most updated section is the NYX display. I came very close to walking out with their new retractable brow pencil, but I wanted to hold off until I could determine which shade was best for me. I’ve heard that it’s comparable to the Anastasia Brown Wiz and it’s about $10 less.

When the Wanderlust Go To Palette originally came out, I wanted it. When I saw it in CVS, I still wanted it. So I bought it.  Continue reading

Nude Dude Volume 2 by the Balm swatches and review!

coaster-I-hate-to-waste-sick-daysHappy Monday, guys!

So, my boyfriend and I came down with some stomach issues and the last 19 hours haven’t been the most pleasant.

I called out of work, he came home early from work and I’ve eaten toast and dry cereal so far today.

It just hasn’t been a good start to the week.

I need to get my game face on because my plan is to get to the office nice and early tomorrow to catch up on whatever it is that I’ve missed from today.

Never fear, I have a new-to-me product to review. I think this palette came out sometime 2014. Thanks to the great Amazon sale that you can read about here, I was able to score the Nude Dude Volume 2 by the Balm! Click that fancy little “more” button and keep reading for some swatches and a quick review. Thanks, guys!  Continue reading

Revealed 2 Palette by Coastal Scents review!

Hello, lovelies!

It’s Friday the 13th! I feel like I should celebrate by watching some scary movies today! It’s, typically, a day of silly superstitions for most. If anything goes wrong, it’s more than likely the dates fault.

I don’t know. I’m having a pretty good one so far!  Continue reading
