Walgreens Beauty Sale Haul

Walgreens Beauty Sale Haul

I went a little crazy during the Walgreens.com beauty sale last week. Okay, maybe a lot crazy. I think I’ve officially obtained hoarder status :/ BUT HOW DO YOU RESIST TEMPTATION WHEN YOU’RE HAVING A STAREDOWN WITH $.50 LIPSTICKS? I’m weak!!! Not only was Wet N’ Wild stuff marked down 50%, but there was a Walgreens coupon code to get an additional 20% off your entire order. I got 18 items for $25 and free shipping! That’s practically free lol

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Solutions for Sensitive Skin

Did you know Burt’s Bees recently launched a skincare line geared towards those of us who suffer from extreme sensitivity? Think inflammation, redness, irritation, dryness, stinging, itching, etc. I’m a member of BzzAgent and was chosen to participate in a Burt’s Bees campaign. They sent me two products from this line to try, the Moisturizer and Facial Cleanser.

Tarte Lip Service Limited-Edition LipSurgence Collection

Tarte Lip Service Limited-Edition LipSurgence Collection

Who doesn’t love a triple threat beauty product? Ever since Tarte launched their LipSurgence line earlier this year, I’ve been enamored with the decadent little things. Actually, little they are not. Tarte has found a way to morphe a balm, lipstick and gloss into one chubby pencil to create the LipSurgence line. Each shade smells and taste like yummy peppermint, which make them deliciously makeout friendly :)

Juice Beauty Conditioning Lip Color Review

Juice Beauty Conditioning Lip Color Review

I don’t know about you ladies and gents, but I’ve been seeing the Juice Beauty brand buzzing around all over the place lately. It was included in some recent Birchbox shipments and featured in a few of my fashion magazines. It just so happened that my Naturals VoxBox from Influenster included a full size tube of Juice Beauty Conditioning Lip Color in shade “Organic Fig”. This pleased me greatly :)

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Set

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Set

It seems like every makeup tutorial I’ve watched lately has used one of these NYX JEPs (Jumbo Eye Pencils) as a base under their shadow. I spotted this set of 6 on sale on Hautelook a few weeks ago, and since I had been hoarding a $10 off coupon, I went ahead and purchased em. Hautelook’s sales have been less than impressive lately so.. I figured this was as good a time as any :) Original price was $16 (-$10 off coupon + $5 shipping) I paid about $11.

Final New Beauty Test Tube of 2011

Final New Beauty Test Tube of 2011

I sadly received my last Test Tube of the year today (and it arrived very early for some reason). I get the QVC version which usually contains different products than the version shipped directly from New Beauty. And it’s a little bit cheaper for me too since I subscribed when it was a “Today’s Special Value”. But alas, I was very disappointed with my final Test Tube of the year. It was just.. blah. Out of all four shipments I received, this is the only one I was completely unhappy with. It’s almost as if QVC just gathered the left-over products they had hanging around and threw them in a tube.

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

UPDATE (2/9/12): I cancelled my GoGoGirlfriend subscription on 1/31/12. I can no longer recommend subscribing to this company. I will leave my GGG posts up as a reference, but sign up at your own risk. See my GoGoGirlfriend post for more details.

Admittedly, I’m pretty obsessed with these monthly sample subscription services. GoGoGirlfriend is the newest service that I joined (thanks to K, one of my awesome commenters for the recommendation!) and so far I am definitely impressed. My last 2 Birchbox shipments have been a little underwhelming, so GoGoGirlfriend has been a refreshing element thrown into my mix of monthlys! The three I subscribe to are: the Beauty Test Tube, Birchbox and GoGoGirlfriend.

Review: It Cosmetics Nail Love Pen

Review: It Cosmetics Nail Love Pen

It Cosmetics is a line that I first discovered while watching beauty presentations on QVC. You might be familiar with their more popular products: the Bye Bye Undereye Concealer or the Brow Power pencil. I own both of these and they pretty much rock. I hold a special place in my heart for companies that make products that actually do what they claim to do LOL. I’m sure you’d all say an Amen to that.
