December Boxycharm 2014

IMG_0844IMG_0846i  IMG_0847iIMG_0849i

Hey girls! ❤ I hope you all are having a great holiday season, I wanted to share my Boxycharm box! This is seriously becoming my FAVORITE beauty subscription box, it’s $21/month, about the same as Glossybox, but you seriously get better sized samples and more middle range and affordable brands mixed in with higher end brands. I really liked this months box, I got things that I actually was interested in. I was recently eyeing some things from Eva-NYC and been going back adn forth about trying mink lashes and here they both are! Also we got a FULL-SIZE Coastal Scents Revealed Eyeshadow Palette, which I have heard so much about. Overall, a winning box!

Do you subscribe to Boxycharm? 🙂

Birchbox December 2014

IMG_0832 IMG_084433 IMG_083688

Hello loves! ❤ I wanted to share my December Birchbox that I got in the mail yesterday, Birchbox has recently implemented a choose your sample feature where you can actually choose one of the samples you will receive. I think it’s a great bonus, but you have to act quickly, because the good ones get snatched up pretty quick! I chose the Mirenesse mascara since my first choice wasn’t available. My favorite item in the box was the Lip Lush which is a moisturizing tinted lip balm with argan oil and echinacea stem cells. Really smooth and moisturizing and smells/tastes great! Overall I wasn’t wowed this month, my favorite thing was actually the super pretty box, but hopefully next months will be better. The items: Dr. Jart Black Label BB Cream, SeaRX Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizing Face Cream, Mirenesse iCurl Secret Weapon 24Hr Mascara, Rusk Texture Spray, and Acure Organics Lip Lush.

IMG_0818 IMG_0819IMG_0820IMG_0821IMG_0822IMG_0823IMG_0825

Hey lovelies! ❤ I just got my Too Faced Everything Nice Palette in the mail today! I’m so happy about it since I missed out on the big holiday palette they did last year, and I have to say, this is a real bang for your buck. It comes with a sparkly pink makeup case, 1 mini Better Than Sex Mascara, 3 mini brushes, 20 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter, and 1 bronzer. This is a mega palette, and if you are planning on traveling anywhere, this would be an end all be all palette to bring with a couple other items. The eyeshadows are pretty good, love the color selection, and of course the bronzer and blushes are gorgeous. You are getting the chocolate soleil bronzer in here so the entire palette smells like chocolate! The little brushes are a nice extra, they could come in handy if you are in a pinch, overall I really like this palette, love the packaging, and can’t wait to use it more! This would make a great gift for the holidays!

Available for $56 at Sephora.

Glossybox November 2014

32 3430

Hey gals! ❤ I got my Glossybox in the mail today, this months box seems very pampery, perfect for winter. I was super happy to see the lavender bath essential oil since I’m a huge fan of baths. My hair has been on the dry side lately so the 12 Benefits spray was a welcomed goodie, it smells AMAZING too! I’ve gotten a few Juice Beauty things before so I was happy to receive that to use during the winter months, and also the So Susan blush (full size $27), which reminded me a lot of Nars Orgasm, it’s supposed to adapt to your skin tone! Overall this was a good box, but nothing amazing. The goods: Kneipp Herbal Bath: Balancing in Lavender, 12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment, So Susan Universal Blush, OPI Nail Lacquer in Pink Outside the Glossybox, and Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer.

Anastasia Tamanna Palette Review & Swatches!

7856

Hey everyone! ❤ I finally wanted to show you a guys a new eyeshadow palette I have been seriously loving. It’s the Anastasia Tamanna palette $29. It’ s a great value and i love the packaging. Anastasia shadows have been getting a great rep lately due to some of their other palettes, this is in particular really stood out to me. ‘The perfect fall and holiday palette designed in collaboration with makeup artist Tamanna Roashan’ I loved the warmth of the shades and the variety of shimmer and mattes. I especially love the Bengal shade, and the black in the palette is very dark and opaque which I love using as a powder liner. It also comes with a pretty nice dual ended brush, and it’s actually usable! The swatches above are done without primer, so you can see that they’re very pigmented and smooth! Definitely worth checking out for the holidays.

FASHION TRENDS BOYS LOVE ON US <3

main.original.585x0

We’ve all heard the things that our boyfriends secretly hate on us, but we love: Peplums, harem pants, Jeffrey Campbell, and anything neon. Of course worn in the right way, any piece of clothing or accessory can be flattering. Here’s a list of fashion trends with boy approval!

Statement Sweatshirts

“At least they show a girl has a sense of humor (and confidence—because objectively they’re not remotely attractive, so it takes balls to wear one).” – Charlie, Creative Executive

High-Waisted  Skinny Jeans

“They accentuate the figure and make your booty look awesome. They’re tight which is nice, and still jeans, so that’s normal.”- Tom, Grad Student

Oversized Sweaters

“I find them to be sexy because they give off a very casual and approachable vibe.” – Joe, Sales Manager

Wide-Brimmed Fedoras

“My girlfriend recently bought one and it looks retro cool. I’m a fan.” – Brennan, Bartender

Fitted Leather Jacket

“I like women to have a bit of a tough look that says they can handle themselves. It gives girls a sexy attitude.”

Tall Boots

“Boot can accentuate a women’s legs, which is a good thing. Super sexy.”

Men’s Button Downs

“Since they aren’t meant for breasts you can sometimes catch tantalizing glimpses of skin in the spaces between the buttons.” –Eli, Writer/Producer

Flower Kiss Stick High-Shine Lipstick luxury Lipsticks

20140909_191652 copy20140909_191741 copy20140909_191707 copy20140909_191820 copy
Hi everyone! ❤ I wanted to share some new lippies I picked up yesterday! They are the Flower Kiss Stick High-Shine Lipstick luxury Lipsticks. I am a HUGE fan of these lipsticks. Love the formula, packaging, price and scent.  For drugstore, these are great quality and look really nice on my vanity. 🙂 These are really hydrating and glossy on the lips with intense pigment. The scent is slightly floral but nothing over powering, and I love how creamy and smooth they apply. The line was originally created by Drew Barrymore and what’s unique about the brand is that it is cruelty free, made in the USA, and formulated with high end ingredients. They are able to offer such great products for a low price because they take pride in not doing any paid advertising. I got: Apricot Blossom, Baby Buttercup and Berry Bloom.

Trends: Fall Beauty & Hair

800x1000cara_delevingners_1024x537-140212153023-1024.mk.cm.21214
Hi all! ❤ Fall is all about effortless luxe. I’m loving the thick, groomed brows and the brown, gilded smokey eyes. A soft, satiny lit from within face with a nude or dark berry lip. Love it! For hair, sleek and primped and a loose effortless up do is a must! Love the look on Cara Delevigne. Which trends will you be sporting this season? 🙂
