IMG_5472 copyIMG_5473 copyIMG_5478 copyIMG_5477 copyIMG_5486 copyHi everyone. I’m finally getting my July beauty boxes in the mail! This one is my Petit Vour box, they specialize in cruelty free products which I totally love. I’m pretty happy with what I got in box, I wish there was another product in there because I usally get 5 or another deluxe sample, but that’s ok. I really like the LVX nail polished $16, and excited to try the lavender an sage deodorant. What I got in my box: LVX 5 Free Nail Polish, Modern Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow, Pelle Beauty Face Oil, Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant.

Etsy Shop Smash Cosmetics Review!


Hello everyone! SUPER exciting post for you, I have a rave review for a product I was sent from Etsy shop SMASHCosmetics. They offer high quality vegan eyeshadows for $6 each. They range from shimmer, matte, glitter, metallic, duo chrome, and unique custom blends. I highly recommend you check them out!!


I received 6 eyeshadows, the packaging is nothing too mind boggling, simple little white round stickers, some with the logo, some with just the name written on, but on the inside was quite the pretty surprise! πŸ˜€


They are each 10 gram loose eyeshadows, definitely enough to play around with and create lots of looks. Plus I feel a little goes a long way to loose mineral eyeshadows, and I definitely recommend using some sort of base. Fall out is usually a given, so something tacky on the lids helps the powder to stick! Also, applied wet they have much more impact! πŸ™‚


Here are the colors from L to R: Unearth, Hurricane, Asteria, Magic, Fools Gold, and Umber. I absolutely love these colors, very earthy yet sophisticated at the same time. Can’t wait to try the glittery one! πŸ™‚


The texture of the eyeshadows are really nice, the matte colors and the darker non-shimmery shades are VERY pigmented. Staying powder is also good with these shades on their own. Unearth and Magic are pretty, glittery and sheer. Great for a wash over the lid, everyday natural looks.


Swacthes L to R: Unearth, Magic, Fools Gold, Umber, Hurricane, and Asteria

Etsy Shop Frecklefarm Organics Review!


Hi everyone! Another fun Etsy shop review for you today, a wonderful soap shop called Frecklefarm Organics! I was initailly really attracked to the packaging, and the imprinted logo on the soaps, so pretty! She is doing a special promo for you guys, use the code Blissno915off for 15% off your order! πŸ™‚


I was sent two soaps, one is the Rise and Shine with Lemongrass soap, and the 15 Minutes of Fame with Lavender soap! “Our handcrafted natural bath and beauty products are made from certified organic ingredients that are in harmony with nature. Each ingredient is handpicked to enhance your beauty from within. Our products are 100% vegan and cruelty free, and our packaging is re-usable and biodegradable.”


This is theΒ Rise and Shine soap bar, “Jump start your morning and set path for an amazing day with our ‘Rise and Shine’ soap. It has been enriched with organic lemongrass essential oil, organic calendula flowers, and natural vitamin-e oil to rejuvenate, soothe, heal, and moisturize your skin. This soap is simply addictive.”


The bars are really nice about 4oz. I absolutely LOVE the packaging, it is so cute and lovely! This makes it perfect for gifts and other things, it’s already ready to go!Β  I love the pretty pastel paper and the burlap textures. πŸ˜€


Here are the ingredients: Unconditional Love, Distilled Water, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Palm Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Organic Essential Oils Blend and Organic Calendula Flowers


Here is the bar without the packaging, it smells so good! I LOVE lemongrass, it’s very fresh and citrusy. I really like the logo imprint, and the little bits that I can see inside the soap. It looks a little different from the picture on her shop, but I guess that’s true for anything.


This is theΒ 15 Minutes of Fame soap bar! It smells heavenly, the ingredients are: Unconditional Love, Distilled Water, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Palm Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Organic Essential Oils Blend and Organic Lavender Flowers.


“Take 15 minutes from your busy schedule to shower yourself in love with our ’15 Minutes of Fame’ soap. It is scented with organic lavender essential oil and infused with organic lavender flowers that serve as an aphrodisiac and provide gentle exfoliation for your skin.” I absolutely love this!! I love the texture of this soap, and that you can see all the lavender flowers in the bar, it would be great for exfoliation!


Overall, I really like her soaps, it’s going to be hard trying to use these because they are so pretty! πŸ™‚

Etsy Shop Lovelace Boudoir Review!

Hi everyone! I’m here to do another Etsy shop review, this is the lovely shop Lovelace Boudoir! She describes it as “Welcome to the utterly elegant, quirky, world of Lovelace Boudoir where makeup is pigmented and the atmosphere is reminiscent of the gilded boudoirs of the victorian era.” All her shadows are hand pressed and vegan! What a lovely thing!

The packaging is great, love the black and purple color theme, and the boxes. There was some sort of rubbery, metallic stamping detail on the front that tied into the flourishy details on the labels. Later on I find that this texture plays in important role!! πŸ˜‰

Inside the boxes were these two little compacts! They are SO cute, and I love that they are simple and round. They feel pretty sturdy, and I like that are aren’t too tall for storage purposes.

Inside the compacts were the eyeshadows! The left is Lovelace ‘It’s like velvetβ€” a deep purple velvet couch, perfect for sinking into and pondering your latest experiments.’ and the right is Green Faerie ‘Are you ready to court with danger? Or perhaps you are a natural at that, and need something dark and daring to wear. Green Faerie is sure to please.’ She says that due to the fact that all of these are hand pressed, there may be slight irregularities in the way the pressed powders look, color of the shadow is not affected by this.

The back of the little compacts has the names, the facebook link, and the cruelty free logo. Absolutely love this!! ❀

Here are both of them swatched. They are VERY pigmented, and have a velvety texture. They give off an amazing shimmer and sheen on the skin. Lasting power is also amazing! These swatches have no base!

Lastly, I received a sample of Ada, a matte cream, white color with a hint of shimmer. She describes it as ‘A sweet cream color with flecks of gold, it’s soft and sweet with a little bite from the gold. What a better way to plot world domination than with your eyes full of β€œriches”!’ Although this is the simplest color, it had to be my favorite. It is perfect for washing all over the lid, and is great to wear everyday and in compliment to the brighter colors.

Swatch: Ada (love it!)

I absolutely love supporting people on Etsy, especially for the holidays!
