Twistband club March 2014

Image

 

I joined twist band club after waiting to get a twist band from my other boxes and got impatient. This was my second month out of three.

Image

Image

 

I am not sure if you can tell from the picture but these are skinnier then normal and i love them. I think i prefer these over the regular twist band’s because they are more like regular hair ties without leaving dents in my hair or arm. 

Image

 

I finally got a head band! I was really wanting a headband since i  currently don’t have any and they are great for washing your face, the gym everything.

 

Limited edition Birchbox finds

 

 

 

Image

 

Every now and then Birchbox does a limited edition box that is separate from the regular monthly box. For this box they let us know what was in it before and since I had some money saved from reviews i had to buy it. SImage

 

John Frieda Frizz ease: I wasn’t expecting to like this but it left my hair very soft and frizz free until i washed it. It also did not leave my hair greasy as long as i was careful not to use too much. 

 

Image

 

Sally Hanson complete salon manicure: this was awful, the shade was super bright and it chipped in less than one day of minimal wear. I would never buy this or recommend this. 

Image

 

Covergirl Bomshell lashes: this really didn’t volumize a whole lot but it still was a decent mascara with good staying power and no flakes. 

Image

 

Rimmel Stay glossy 3D: this is a pink sparkly lipgloss, whats not to love? it went on pretty sheer with some sparkle, it may be a little sticky for some people though but i tend to prefer mine that way.

Image

 

Biore self heating one minute mask: I had recently tried the charcoal face wash and it was great so i was dying to try this mask. It was not too hot or irritating even on my sensitive skin and it left my skin soft and glowing.

Image

 

Covergirl bomshell shineshadow: this was awful even the finest amount left me looking like a clown with frosting on my eyelids. It was a white shiny mess.

Image

 

Nivea a kiss of color & care: this was amazing it was almost colorless but it left my lips soft and hydrated. I would buy these in a million colors. 

Ipsy March 2014

Image

 

 

So I have recently been having serious internet issues, like 3 weeks of very patchy internet, so i haven’t been able to do any of my reviews so even with them being late here they are. Ipsy is a beauty subscription box that sends 4-5 deluxe or full size products and it’s only $10 a month. 

Image

 

Nicole by OPI roughness polish: i honestly thought i would hate this but It grew on me after i had it on for a day. I may not always want a textured polish but it is a nice change, i feel like i would have liked it a lot more in a more neutral color. 

Image

 

Pixi flawless beauty primer: a lot of people were complaining that this was glittery but i found it to be more like a liquid highlighter, it just brightened up my skin. I will say that it smelled like sunscreen and made my skin feel a little tight. 

Image

 

Be a Bomshell Bora Bora eyeshadow quad: I was honestly a little concerned that these colors would be too bold for me, i am not very adventurous, but even i could make these work. These colors are all so great and had a good staying power. 

Image

 

Bare minerals Marvelous Moxie lipstick in get ready: I love this. It isn’t the typical bright pink or red but it is still a very wearable color. It really is so great. 

 

Splendies March 2014

Image

 

 

I would like to first clarify that even though this review is late my splendies package did arrive on time. I have been recently experiencing internet problems and have had spotty internet for over a week now so i am way behind. I should have three more reviews by this weekend for you. Now on to the package. Splendies is $12 a month but there are always coupons to get your first month for only $8. 

Image

 

 

 

 

 

At first i did not think i would like these, I tend to wear bolder underwear, but these were so comfortable. From the moment i tried them on I wanted to buy other pairs. These really are so great. 

Image

 

I think this is such a cute design and had a very flattering fit. I always love boy shorts since they provide more coverage without looking frumpy. These were very form fitting but had a lot of stretch in the material so they were still comfortable. 

Image

I love getting the seasonal panties! I just think they are so much fun. They were a nice silky material and unlike most people I don’t mind the thongs. Every pair of underwear has a purpose. I am always so impressed with my splendid each month, even if at first look i am not. When i first opened this package I was not over the moon but once i tried them in they were so comfortable and were such good quality I always end up loving every pair. My splendies panties always end up becoming my favorite pairs. 

 

BirchBox March 2014

Image

Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that only cost $10 a month. What really makes Birchbox worth it is that you get $5 a month to spend in the Birchbox shop every month for reviewing your items. I may cancel next month because as much as i love birch box I just can not get over the small sample sizes. For $10 i would rather try somethings at the store that i have had my eye on but this is still great if you want to try higher end products before buying. I would love if you guys would use my referal link if you are thinking about signing up!

I know some people were not happy about getting a drugstore item but i actually liked this. It was a decent size and something I would actually use. The smell was faintly vanilla but it also smelled like something else I can’t describe. I haven’t been using it long enough to say if my skin looks any different but it was moisturizing and dried very quickly.

Image

This smelled so amazing. I don’t know what it smelled like but I loved it. It wasn’t the most moisturizing but it will be great in the summer when my skin isn’t so dry.

Image

Since I live in Florida I love anything with sunscreen but this didn’t match my skin very well which i will blame more on the fact that i am ghost pale then the product but once i gave it a good rub it was almost invisible. It went on really smooth and silky and had almost no scent.

Image

I currently haven’t tried this because I can’t reseal it and I haven’t been home to leave it open (spring break) but i normally love hair oils so i am sure it will be a win for me.

Image

I really though i would love this since everyone had been using it on their lips and said it was great but i did not find it to be moisturizing on my lips. I did try it on my knees that had a slight rug burn ( ikea desk) and they felt a million times better. This did have a citrus scent that i didn’t love but it wasn’t too bad.

Wantable Intimates March 2014

Image

My wantable box was a little rough looking this month but nothing was harmed so its ok. Wantable is a monthly subscription box that is $36 a month if you are on a subscription. Wantables intimates is quickly becoming my favorite. It has some of the cutest stuff.

Image

So i already received this bra in purple so i was not pleased to get this at all even though i love sea foam green. I contacted wantable and they told me that different colors do not count as duplicates which i think is ridiculous. I would have liked this better if it was lined.

Image

These were so adorable, i love lace and i also like having bright colors. They make me feel pretty. They were a little cheeky in the back though that may make some people uncomfortable.

Image

I normally love Betsey Johnson but these are just not cute. The colors are awful, I hate mesh, and a butterfly on the butt really? Now i may be biased because I hate mesh panties, I think they look cheap and are uncomfortable.

Image

I really love these. They are incredibly soft and are so cute. Living in Florida these are perfect for me almost all year round. I really can not tell you guys how much I love these.

Since I am just starting out with these I would really love if you guys would use my referral link so I can keep making more reviews. https://www.wantable.com/invite/RLct66BA0r8

Pinch Me March Box

Image

For those of you who don’t know pinch me is a free sample site that announces on their Facebook when their samples will be released. Now they go very fast so make sure you get on there as soon as they are available. I would also like to mention that the boxes take a very long time to get to you, normally like a month so do not be surprised if your box hasn’t come in the two week time frame they suggest.

Image

This was a really large sample. I could get many uses out of it. The entire bottle was filled to the top! I haven’t had a chance to try it yet but I can’t wait.

Glossy box February 2014

I actually just received my glossy box on the 4th so to exactly February but since I was a new subscriber ill give them a break on that. Glossy box is $21 a month and each month you will get 5 products to your door. I have been dying to try glossy box for a while now and when they had a coupon for a Bella Pierre lipstick in your first box. the coupon code now is GBFRESH and it is for a deluxe size  Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream. Now I know most of you have already read the glossy box reviews but since I haven’t seen anyone else who didn’t get the eye patches i decided to do my review. 

ImageImage 

Image

I never understood all the hype about the packaging until my box arrived. It really is so cute and makes the box feel even more amazing.

Image

I would have been more excited for this if i hadn’t gotten a similar shade in my tipsy bag this month. This formula is almost white on, it really needs a little more pink. It also came out a little streaky and has chipped a little on the ends in only two days.Since it launched in this box i will go with the listed price of $18. More then i would pay but since the whole box was $21 I am happy with it.

Image

I have been wanting to try this brand for the longest time so I was super excited to get it in my glossy box. it is hard to find because it is based out of the UK. The color was long lasting and went on really smooth. It was kind of waxy but i prefer my glosses like that so i was happy. The only thing I didn’t love was the smell. It wasn’t strong or unpleasant it just smelled almost like red Kool-aid. I would still buy these again, in fact i plan on trying more scents. Either way $9 is not a bad price for this gloss.

Image

I know most people were complaining about getting another black eyeliner but I was actually really pleased, in fact this is the spoiler that made me sign up for glossy box because i was almost out of my current black eyeliner and I haven’t been very pleased with it. I was really impressed with this eyeliner it lasted all day and even through the gym without smearing. I can not even tell you how amazing that is. So if anyone needs a black eyeliner i would recommend this. It is listed for $11 on Birchbox so i will use that retail value.

Image

I don’t know why i have never thought about a mattifying gel before, I live in Florida it should be my best friend. It says that it should last for 8 hours but i haven’t really been able to check that yet since i either got rained on went to the gym everyday i wore it. I will say that until then it did keep me nice and matte. I was even less shiny after the gym so i will give it a tentative seal of approval pending further wear. I am glad I got in the box because it is $30 even on amazon.

Image

This was the only non full sized product in the box. It is supposed to protect color treated hair and since i do color my hair I don’t mind trying it. It didn’t leave my hair oily or weight it down but it did leave my hair silky.I don’t like its very floral scent but to be fair i don’t tend to like floral scents. This has a retail value around $3.58.

 

Image

This lipstick is listed on Amazon for $9 but it is listed on their website for $20. This was my signup gift and since Bella Pierre is a new brand for me I was excited. I received the shade catwalk which is a lovely peachy color. The packaging is adorable and the lipstick smells like vanilla. I personally loved this. It is a great color, so cute and it smells amazing. I will certainly buy more.

This box had a retail value of over $80 even using the price I found online! I can not believe the value of this box for only $21. Everyone should sign up for this box I am in love. If you decide to sign up email me and ill send you my referral link, I would so appreciate it. 

Julep

Image

Since Julep has updated their skipping policy I won’t sign up but I have been dying to try their polishes. I went through the clearance section and bought a bunch and with every $25 purchase you got a clutch and two polishes for free. I also got free shipping so I only payed $25.92 for this whole purchase.

Image

This clutch was adorable and a lot larger then I expected, It is big enough to fit my iPad mini. Its black and gold and so cute.

Image

Here is the inside of the bag. I am a sucker for leopard print.

Image

Here are the two polishes that came for free. They are Rita and Oscar. Rita is so pretty, its a dark purple color. Oscar is gold glitter but I had a horrible time trying to get it somewhat even.

Image

left to right. Cassie, Nan, Glenn, Lauren. Cassie is a nice nude color. Nan is my absolute favorite color. I have had it on for days now and it hasn’t chipped. I am in love. Glenn is a nice red and Lauren is much brighter then i thought it would be but it will look great with a summer tan.

Image

Kai and Joanna. Kai has a sea salt finish and it is just as blue as it looks. Joanna is a nice lilac color, perfect for spring. I forgot to mention that I accidentally bought two of Joanna so I got one more polish then is pictured.

Image

I should have put the polishes on in the same groupings that the polishes were in but I was so excited to try them all on i forgot. These are listed left to right. Cassie, Nan, Lauren, Joanna

Image

This is Kai. I wanted you to really be able to see the sea salt finish.

Image

This is Glenn, Rita and Oscar.
