Sephora Play! August 2017 Unboxing

Purchased

This is going to be a fairly short review/unboxing post because I’ve actually already gotten my September box and am ready to write that review up, but then I realized that I forgot to write up my thoughts on August. (I blame “back to school.”) Continue reading “Sephora Play! August 2017 Unboxing”

Unboxing: PLAY! BY SEPHORA The All-Star Edition

Purchased

August has been a really good month for my makeup and skincare addiction. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but in any case, I’ve spent some money this month, and I’ve gotten some pretty good stuff. I had a spectacular e.l.f. haul, which added to some brand new essences and first cleansers, which I can’t wait to test out. I got the Naked Heat palette and discovered my love for red and orange eyeshadows. My Sephora Play box for August (which will be reviewed shortly) had some fabulous items that I loved and had a retail value of over $50.

And then there was this. This is only the second time I’ve seen Sephora offer a super special Play box (no subscription required), and the last one was only available to Rouge members. This one is now available to anyone who wants to buy it. I didn’t get the last one because I wasn’t too excited about the products they mentioned. (Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is okay, but it smells weird on me after a while. Plus, it included a second perfume sample.)

This time, I saw mention of a Tom Ford makeup product, which is a WHOLE other situation, in addition to skincare products from two brands I adore AND a bonus Victor & Rolf fragrance (and I knew what it had to be), and snatched one up on Tuesday. It was on my porch the next day– not my typical Flash shipping experience lately, and I’m definitely not complaining. Continue reading “Unboxing: PLAY! BY SEPHORA The All-Star Edition”

e.l.f. Haul!

Purchased

For anyone who missed it on Instagram yesterday, my latest e.l.f. order came in. Since I was too darn lazy to do a full review, I grabbed my phone and did a few first impressions. Now that I have time to sit down, I figure I’ll gather everything together and maybe provide just a bit more info, including links to what I got. Continue reading “e.l.f. Haul!”

Beauteque Mask Maven July 2017 Review

Purchased

You know, I’ve never really given much thought to Beauteque’s themes, and it’s not like I care one way or another, but they do seem to be keeping to them lately, and I really like this one. July’s theme was “Summer Sweets” and (with a couple of exceptions) features a fruit and honey vibe. Considering how much I love all things bee, this is a theme I can get behind. Oh, and I like fruit masks, too. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven July 2017 Review”

Beauteque Mask Maven June 2017 Review

Purchased

As has been the case with Mask Maven for a few months now, they ship on the last day of every month, so my June bag of course arrived mid-July. Admittedly, this is getting annoying, but I’m still enjoying the bags, so I guess I’ll put up with it. I just wish they’d go ahead and call it a July bag instead of June.

Each Mask Maven comes with a pretty sheer drawstring bag and a sheet detailing the masks included that month. You’ll get anywhere from 9-11 masks (usually sheet masks, though there can occasionally be some variation) to the tune of $15 plus shipping. If you live in the U.S., your total will come to about $18.95. If you’re interested in subscribing to Mask Maven (or their beauty box subscription), you can do that here.

New e.l.f. Products I Want to Try

Image result for news stuff gif

While I feel like I’ve mostly graduated from cheaper makeup brands to discovering what I truly like and expect from a product and paying a little more for that, I still have some favorites that I shop for in the drug store instead of in Sephora. Believe it or not, e.l.f. still tops that list of brands I’ll stop and sift through. (So does NYX and Wet & Wild, though not to quite the same degree.) Continue reading “New e.l.f. Products I Want to Try”

Sephora Play! July 2017 Unboxing

Purchased

Yay! Another Sephora Play box is here!

For anyone who might be wondering what this is, it’s one of the many beauty box subscriptions out there, this one being from Sephora. So as you’d expect, it features deluxe samples of products sold by Sephora. It’s nice in particular if you’re like me and have been around the block a bit with other subscriptions, and you want to see familiar premium brands. Honestly, I like discovering new products, but after a while I did start to yearn for something I was more likely to actually buy, and since I’m a frequent Sephora shopper (a little more than I’d like to admit), this is perfect for me. If you think it might be for you, I’ll provide some info on how to subscribe below. Continue reading “Sephora Play! July 2017 Unboxing”

Review: Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Recovery Gel Cream

Purchased

A little over a year ago, I decided to give the Asian beauty craze a try. My skin had randomly decided to go nuts, and I needed a solution. The idea of trying one thing at a time and creating my own unique routine that was specifically tailored to me just made sense, and the simplicity of many of the products used appealed to me. I fell in love and haven’t looked back since. Continue reading “Review: Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Recovery Gel Cream”

Beauteque Mask Maven May 2017 Review

Purchased

Now well into July, believe it or not I’m just now finishing up the May bag from Mask Maven. As I mentioned in my review for the April bag, Beauteque has started shipping out their bags on the last day of the month, so my May bag didn’t arrive until about halfway through June, and my June bag arrived just this week. Add to that, I’m saving reviews until after I’ve actually had the opportunity to try all of the masks.

Each Mask Maven comes with a pretty sheer drawstring bag and a sheet detailing the masks included that month. You’ll get anywhere from 9-11 masks (usually sheet masks, though there can occasionally be some variation) to the tune of $15 plus shipping. If you live in the U.S., your total will come to about $18.95. If you’re interested in subscribing to Mask Maven (or their beauty box subscription), you can do that here.
