Manicure Compilation

I thought I would make a compilation post of all of the different nail polish looks I’ve been playing around with lately. You’ve probably seen a few of these if you follow me on Instagram. Sadly, I’ve done something I never thought I’d do. I’ve officially fallen deep into the Instagram black hole. Jump in and join me - girlyenthusiast :)

Giveaway! Win a MAC Limited Edition Lipstick in Flamingo!

MAC’s Flamingo lipstick is easily one of my most favorite makeup products of all time. It sold out in the Iris Apfel collection last year and was just released in the All About Orange collection… and it sold out yet again. But fear not, I picked up an extra tube to send to one of my awesome readers.

Epic $320 Birchbox Haul

Even though I’ve been a Birchbox member for 2 years now (I joined in June, 2011) I’ve never really spent many of my birchbox points because, lezbehonest, I’m a total hoarder and that’s what hoarders do. But they were due to expire, so hence the enormous shopping spree. Some of my points actually DID expire but Birchbox was nice enough to give them back so I could place this order.

Rock Your Hair by Michael O’Rourke

I am always intrigued by hair products that claim to give me massive volume and body because my natural hair is super fine, straight and limp. And my hair shafts are very smooth because I’ve never used hair dye and I rarely use hot tools – which is great for softness but not great for volume (rougher hair cuticles are much easier to style and gain lift from). I tried out some of the staple products from the ROCK YOUR HAIR line to see how they worked on my lackluster tresses.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box! March 2013

Popsugar is my newest discovery in the monthly subscription world. This is my 4th box and I am simply in love thus far. The Must Have box differs from the cheaper sub services (birchbox, ipsy) because you get a nice assortment of full size products/items for $35 per month instead of smaller samples.

November Starbox from Starlooks!

And I’m back! Sorry for the short little hiatus there. I moved my site to a new server and had a few little hiccups during the process.

I figured there would be no better way to kick off my return than showcasing the absolutely gorgeous November Starbox from Starlooks. This is my third Starbox and most definitely my favorite to date. It was their first “custom” box that included eye shadow colors based on your skin tone.

October Starbox from Starlooks!

It seems like the up and coming makeup-only Starbox subscription is getting more and more popular as the months go by. And rightly so, it’s a pretty sweet service. If you’re unfamiliar with the Starbox, for $15 per month you are guaranteed at least 3-4 full size items per month, which  could be anything from a lipstick to an eyeliner.
