April Birchbox

Hello Beauties,

 It’s that time again, My Birchbox has arrived!  This month Birchbox did a collaboration with Rifle Paper Co.  I also choose the curated box this month since the samples choices to me were not very interesting.

Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution- Full size, $21

This water solution does 3 things removes makeup, cleanses skin, and soothes irritation.  I’m really excited to try this product since I have nothing like this. Marcelle is also a very good brand and it’s not the first time Birchbox has features this brand.

Dr. Jart+ Liftra Contour Cream- Full size, $60

  Dr. Jart is also another brand  I like very much.  This cream firms, lifts, and                               plumps skin.  Also this is a very pricey brand so I get excited when this brands                         is in a box.

 Laura Geller New York Baked Blush-n-Brighten- Full size $28

  This blush-highlighter duo is  very beautiful and gives you a natural-looking                             flush.   I like to combine this product with another blush just lightly.

  Parlor by Jeff Chastain Volumizing gave Lifting Spray- Full size,$24 

  I received this product last month so I’m not upset to get another one since I gave                  mine away to a friend who wanted to try it.  I will say this smells nice and it gives                    you volume and lift.

 Tocca Crema da Mano- Giuliettta-Full size, $20

  I like how soft and silky this lotion is and the scent is very light.  It is loaded with                   natural botanical, this green apple and pink tulip lotion absorbs in a flush.

Let me know what you got in you Birchbox. Also here is a code for 20% off your next order at Rifle paper Co S4Y-75U.

Beauty Bargain * L.A. Colors babyPOP! Eyeshadow and Lipgloss*

image

Hello Beauties 👋
So I stopped at Dollar General this morning and of course I head to the makeup aisle 😍.  I saw these product and thought “Cute”.  Now I have seen this brand before but never have tried them before. 2/$1.00 “What a steal” I picked up 6 eyeshadows and 2 lipglosses. So lets get to the point.

image

Teal Steel 0.12 OZ
This is a very beautiful teal color very soft and pigmented.

image

image

Reminds me of a mermaid.

image

Wine Shimmer 0.12 OZ
This color is a deep wine matte color.

image

It’s still a very nice dark rich color.

image

image

image

Blue Mermaid 0.12 OZ
This shadow is also very pigmented blue steel color.

Black Frost 0.12 OZ

image

The name says it all with a hint of shimmer.

image

image

Really like this black frost color and vey pigmented.

image

Golden 0.12 OZ
This gold brown color is my favorite.

image

Also very pigmented

image

image

image

Nude Shimmer 0.12 OZ

image

A great highlight color this was just a bit chalky but very pigmented.

image

I did pick up two lipglosses one in Nude and the other one in red.

image

There was a pink color also, these lipglosses are sheer but have lots of color.
Overall not what I expected from cheaper makeup.  Very impressed with these product and the quality.
For this price they are affordable and very worth trying out.  So check your local Dollar General and pick these up and let me know how you like them.  Thanks for stopping in 💛.

Weekend Review *Laura Gellar Baked Liquid Radiance Foundation*

image

Hello Beauties 👋
So I figured I would review this product since I have had it for a bit.  I did receive this product in a Birchbox awhile back.
Now I believe I did get this during the summer so at that time I had a bit of skin issues such as various dry spots on my face :(.  So when I first tried this product I hated it.  Well first I did apply it with my fingers, second it just showed my dry patches on my face.  Away it went in the back of my makeup.

image

I decided to give it another chance after a few months.  Now I had started using a moisturizer so no more dry patches and I used my beauty blender when I applied it.
Major difference….. I really liked it.

image

image

Long wearing, radiant finish, full coverage and very lightweight.  I kind of had a tan so this was perfect since I had the color in Golden Medium.

This is what the website says about this product:
The next generation of Baked, now in a full-coverage liquid formula! Loose pigments are coated in Almond Oil, then baked in Italy on terracotta tiles to create perfect spheres of color that lay evenly on skin. Blended with skin-loving, moisturizing ingredients, this foundation delivers weightless, creamy color correction with a natural skin finish. The long-wearing, streak- free formula leaves skin glowing and healthy looking—like radiance in a bottle!

I think if you have dry skin this foundation is not for you.  Have you tried this product?  Thanks for stopping in💙

*Scentbird* October Perfume Subscription

image

Hello Beauties 👋
I just recently subscribed to a new beauty service….. or perfume subscription.  I’m very excited about this subscription, it’s called Scentbird.  I love perfumes and if I could buy them all I would.  We know how expensive a bottle of high end perfume are, $50-$100 dollars a bottle.
Scentbird has about 350+ designer scents on their website. You choose the fragrance you want every month and add it your
queue.   Here is what mine looks like.

If you don’t know what scent to choose you are able to do a smart search that looks like this.

This is the scent I choose for the month of October  Dolce&Gabbana Dolce it come in (0.27 OZ / 8 ML) spray bottle very similiar to a rollerball perfume.

image

You do receive a case for your perfume bottle and a velvet pouch which is nice to carry in your purse.

Scentbird is $14.95 month which I think is a great deal because you usually pay $20+ for a rollerball perfume.  Your sample is suppose to last about a month if you use 3 or 4 sprays a day.  For my first perfume I actually looked at some Youtube videos and found a code for 25% of my first order.
If you love perfumes definitely check this website out http://www.scentbird.com
They have also added a mens cologne subscription which I’m looking into for my husband.

Have an Awesome day!!!

Milani Cosmetics { Total Lash Cover Mascara with 3 Zone Brush}

A few weeks ago I received a link for a *Milani Mascara Giveaway* on Facebook,  now I don’t know how many giveaways I have entered on Facebook and I never win ANYTHING.   Well for my surprise I received a email saying I was a WINNER!!!  I believe they where giving away a few hundred out.   Milani had 3 types of mascaras and on that day I entered for TOTAL LASH COVER.

 

It claims it has 3 zones to cover your eyelashes.

Provides multi-performance coverage with a 3 zone brush that defines, builds and curls lashes. This long-lasting, non-clumping formula feels comfortable for all day wear.  The wand is a little weird looking with hot pink rubber ….. Not sure what to call these Oh!!! comb applicator,  and neon yellow fibers.  I have been using this mascara since I received it and I really like it MUCHO…… Mucho.  I can see my lashes are  thicker and longer and they look pretty good all day.   It runs about $4.99 – $6.99 at drugstores or on the website  milanicosmetics.com for $4.99.   I think this is a really good product and I will definitely go out and get a new one.
