Birch Box April 2013 (USA)

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope everyones good and enjoying this beautiful day! In today's post I am going to be sharing with you the Birchbox for the month of April. I have received Birchbox before, I think last year, but before going on vacation I canceled it. Last week I thought I want to try it again, and I signed up! Today I received my package and I was really excited. 

If you have never heard of Birchbox before it is a $10 monthly subscription box, they send you 4-5 samples of products.I love this idea because you get to try many different brands and different products. For a price of $10 a month, what comes in the box is always higher. For the year of 2013 this is my first box.

So lets get into what comes in the box. This month Birchbox has teamed up with Women's Health. I got 5 products. 

1:Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick: I got it in a red shade. I did try this lipstick and it is amazing. I will hopefully be checking it out in different colors as well. It is really smooth and applies perfectly.

2:Folle de Joie Parfum: I got a little mini of this parfum. To be honest I am not a big fan of Parfume's. This one is a floral smell and I think it is perfect for summer.

3: Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir: I haven't tried this yet, but it looks like a great serum. The packaging says it is a hydrating serum for your hair.

4:Simple Revitalizing Eye roll-on: This roll-on is for puffy eyes and dark circles. It has vitamin-B to soften your skin and make your under eyes look refreshed.I tried this twice, and it sure is great! It has a tingly feeling, and it feels refreshing.

5:Laface Laboratories PUR purifiying Facial Wash: I received a little sample of this. I haven't tried it yet. But it is a purifying face wash which gets rid of dirt and impurities. It also acts as a foaming cleanser and toner.







I will be trying the products I haven't tried yet soon! Hope all of you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you are subscribed to Birchbox. If not find them here: BirchBox ! Talk to you guys soon!!

L'Oreal Infallible in Eternal Sunshine

Saturday, April 27, 2013


Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I just want to say a real quick thanks to all of you and all of my readers. Thanks for reading my blog and commenting on posts. I really appreciate it.

 Today's post is going to be on L'Oreals Infallible shadow in Eternal Sunshine. This shade is a light golden brown shade with a metallic frost shine. It is a really soft sunset shade. I have only tried one of the Loreal Infallible eyeshadows. I am really impressed with the quality. The pigmentation is really great, also the color pay off is great. 

These shades are a pressed pigment. I love to put this shade alone on my eye lid and do a black cat eye eyeliner. Overall I am really impressed and satisfied with this shade. I would recommend this shade for anyone who's looking for a really great pressed pigment.





I hope all of you enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any of these shades. Hope all of you have a wonderful day. Talk to you soon!

NYX Blush in Natural (07)

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Hello Beauties,

 Hope all of you are doing great and having a wonderful day. I have been enjoying the beautiful spring days, with bright colors and bright nail polishes. Although it rained a couple of days but I don't mind that at all. I also once again want to say thank you to all my followers who have been with me since day one and to those who just recently joined my blog.

 Todays post is on NYX Natural Powder Blush. I don't own a lot of blushes, I was actually never a big fan of blushes. NYX products are very great and I have tried out a lot of them, so I picked up this blush and was not let down. Natural is a matte peachy pink blush, with no shimmer. I love the smooth powder texture of this blush. The finish is also really nice, and shows up very natural on the cheeks. You do get the "natural" look with this blush, looks like someone pinched your cheeks!

I absolutely recommend this blush for anyone whos looking for a nice natural pink toned shade. It is a great powder blush with great pigmentation. 








I hope all of you enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any of the NYX powder blushes. Talk to you soon! Be sure to follow me on twitter: TWITTER LINK

Four Leaf Clover by China Glaze

Friday, April 19, 2013

Hello Beauties,

How are you all doing on this lovely Friday afternoon? Hope you all are having a great day. I am doing a real quick NOTM. Today I am wearing Four Leaf Clover by China Galze. I have had this shade in my collection for a while now and finally decided to wear it. Let me let you know it was really hard for the camera to pick up this shade. It didn't pick up the true color, or the true green. Four leaf clover is a bright green, and its almost a neon. This shade is great for spring. I would recommend this for anyone who loves a green shade.




 Hope you all enjoyed this NOTM post. Have a great weekend. Talk to you guys soon!

Sephora Flashy Eyeliner Waterproof

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Hello Beauties,

Hope all of you are doing great and enjoying your day. First of all I am really excited to tell you guys that I have reached a 100 followers! I am so thankful to you guys for staying loyal and reading my blog. Because of you guys I am motivated to do great posts for you! Thanks again!

 I love Sephora brand products, although I haven't tried a lot of their products but I have tried some. Today's post is going to be on two of the flashy eyeliners from Sephora.

First of all, these are the most smoothest eyeliner pencils I have ever tried. They go on smoothly and are easily blendable. I also love how the eyeliner pencils are waterproof and perfect for spring and summer. The eyeliner lasts a long time, although it is waterproof it is a little hard to take off.

The two colors I have are Flashy Brown  Flashy Ultra Brown. Both of them are in the brown family and are very good for water lining. Flashy Brown is a deep brown with light shimmer. And Flashy Ultra Brown is more of a bronze shade.

I would recommend these if you havent tried out the Urban Decay eyeliners yet. These are great quality and really affordable.







        Hope you all enjoyed this post! And once again thanks for reading and being a great follower! Let me know in the comments below if you have tried out any of the falshy eyeliners!

L'Oreal Colour Riche in Cardinal Plume

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Hello Beauties,

Hope all of you are having a wonderful day! As all of you know I just started buying Loreal lip products and I am absolutely in love with them. Today I am going to be sharing a lipstick from Loreal named Cardinal Plume.

First of all I love the name of this product Cardinal Plume sounds perfect for the shade. This shade is from the Loreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks. It is a bright red-orange shade and has no shimmer. This shade is perfect for spring, I love the sweet tangy brightness in it. This shade is really moisturizing like a balm. Also, the pigmentation is awesome for this shade. You can apply it lightly or apply it with force or 2 times and the shade shows up very great. 

The lasting power is okay mine lasted 2-3 with eating and drinking. I love how they are very shiny too, it looks great on the lips and is perfect for any shade of skin. Also it is not only a great shade for spring it is a great shade for year around. Also lets talk about the packaging I love the golden packaging and how you can easily see the shade on the bottom.

Over all I give this product a 10/10, and also recommend for anyone who's looking for a perfect spring shade for their lips.











I hope all of you enjoyed this post! Let me know what is your favorite shade for spring in the comments below. Have a great day and see you soon!

I just polish them in the summer with a bright red or coral. In the winter time I dont think its necessary.


9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?

If I am doing a natural look 10 mins and if its a more dramatic look with foundation its about 20-25. Lots of blending for smokey looks!

Yes! I am not that person who has to wear makeup every time I leave the house.
