There comes a time in every makeup lovers life, when you have to accept that you are coming to the end of one or more of your favorite products. I have reached that point with two of my most used eyeshadow palettes.
I recently purchased the Smashbox Photo Strip Eye Shadow Palette as part of my Sephora haul during the 20% discount event. This palette was one that I really wasn't sure I wanted. I loved the look of the shades but...
I think this is the latest I've ever received my Boxycharm, so I was eager to unbox it to see my goodies. This months theme is Spellbound, which baring in mind it's October and therefore Halloween, is I suppose appropriate.
I have been on the fence about this palette since first seeing previews of it a couple of months ago. Was it the palette for me, did I need these colours, was it worth the $82 CND/$62 USD? Well, I gave in and bought it and this is my review.
This month's Boxycharm was a little later than usual, but as the company is based in Miami and Hurricane Irma put Florida into a state of chaos, I can definitely forgive this. But it was worth the wait!
I really wanted this palette when it was released last year with the lipstick and case etc, but unfortunately, it was not available at my local Sephora and I never found it available on the website in Canada. So imagine my delight when the palette was released again
I was recently asked to try out a new makeup product called The Brush Bar and its companion, The Brush Board. This is a makeup brush cleaning duo and after checking it out on their website readily agreed. This is my honest and unbiased review.
When I first saw the promotion for this palette I Knew I wanted it. It looked like it had all the shades that I normally gravitate towards in one nice palette. I have been disappointed in the past by the quality of Sephora eyeshadows, so I was hoping this would live up to my expectations.
I have previously mentioned and reviewed Kryolan eyeshadow palettes as I feel they are a great addition to any makeup addicts collection. This palette is the V1 interferenz version which has a wide variety of shades all edging towards the pastel range.
My hair is very fine and has hardly any body to it, so when I was chosen to take part in a trial of New Wash Shampoo by Hairstory, I jumped at it. This is a new type of shampoo that uses aloe and essential oils instead of the traditional detergents to clean your hair. Here is my hairstory….
So, this month the theme for Boxycharm is Boho Glow and as you would expect it includes a highlighter amongst other things. I had previously seen some spoilers and to be honest the promised contents didn’t fill me with my usual positive vibes for the box, but let’s take a better look.
I have quite a few Kat Von D products including several eyeshadow palettes, so when I happened to see that my local Sephora had this Plum Quad in stock during my last visit, I jumped at the chance to buy it.
I’ve finally got round to reviewing the Naked Cosmetics, Urban Rustic Palette that I received in my March Boxycharm. When I originally saw the spoilers for this palette, I was a little underwhelmed. The shades didn’t seem to be the ones I’d normally use and I had never heard of Naked Cosmetics. So my expectations were not high.
Being based in Canada, I am always pleased to find new Canadian companies offering great products and I wanted to share my latest find with you. Ingenium Naturals offers natural health supplements, pure essential oils, beauty hair and skincare products as well as premium teas.
When I saw that I’d be receiving the dr. brandt microdermabrasion in my Boxycharm, I was pretty excited. I heard many people praising it, saying how wonderful it was so I was looking forward to trying it out. So, is it worth all the hype?
Once again my Boxycharm arrived earlier than usual, no complaints from me! So, I was eager to see what goodies were inside my mystery black box. The theme this month is Creepy Cute, which was a little odd given that it is March and not October, but who am I to question Boxycharm?
A few weeks ago I posted a photo of a makeup look I did on my various social media channels and received amazing feedback and many comments asking about the products I used. So, I decided to put together the list of products and details of the look in this post.
