Review & Swatches: tarte Glow Your Way To Gorgeous 8 Piece Collection

Okay, so the OFFICIAL name of this collection is: tarte Glow Your Way To Gorgeous 8 Piece Maracuja & Clay Collection. It’s definitely a mouthful, but more importantly, it’s definitely worth picking up!!! This set is available for under $50, and you can even do QVC’s easy pay of about $17 for 3 months. It will be featured as QVC’s Today’s Special Value on July 2nd, but you can pre-order it now (I ordered mine last week and have already received it!)

My first VoxBox!

Have you ladies heard of Influenster? It’s a program geared towards “influential” consumers who like to experiment with new products and then share their opinions about them. You can receive different themed boxes based on what types of badges you unlock  in your profile. I had recently unlocked the beauty badge, so they sent me a fabulous box full of fun beauty products! P.S. This VoxBox was FREE, as are all of the voxboxes Influenster sends out! It really is an awesome program to be apart of.

Review of Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara

Seeing as how I am a total impulse shopper at the drugstore, I picked up a tube of the Maybelline Colossal Mascara. I have been hearing great things about this stuff, but I have been super disappointed in every other Maybelline mascara I’ve tried recently (especially The Falsies.. ugh). So I bought it with high hopes!
