September Starbox from Starlooks!

September Starbox from Starlooks!

Have you heard of the Starbox? It’s a monthly beauty box subscription from Starlooks that seems to be steadily gaining in popularity among makeup lovers. And that is largely because the Starbox is strictly MAKEUP and makeup-related stuff (like brushes and primers). 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.

Review: It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick

What a long name for such a little product lol. It Cosmetics sent me their newest multi-tasking lippie, which promises to replace your lipstick, balm, stain and gloss. They are calling it a ‘Lip Flush’ and I’m kinda diggin’ the concept.

Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

If you’re a QVC junkie like me, you’ve probably seen this foundation on TV a time or two. This foundation launched back in March, 2011 and it’s been a hot commodity ever since. And until last month, the only place you could even buy it was on QVC. I was very excited to learn it’s now available both on Tarte’s website and at Sephora!

Swatches: Revlon Lip Butters

Swatches: Revlon Lip Butters

I’m sure 99% of you are sick of all the Revlon Lip Butter hoopla, am I right? Lol well, I recently surrendered to the almighty lip butter Gods! These things really are awesome and actually DO live up to the hype. The only frustrating thing is finding them. Every display of these that I’ve found has been so incredibly picked over. I was lucky enough to grab these 3 shades at CVS, which are 3 of the 4 that I wanted! I still need to find Peach Parfait but so far I have: Creamsicle, Sugar Frosting and Strawberry Shortcake.

Review & Swatches: Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss

Review & Swatches: Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss

I’m kind of a gloss addict. If any particular lip gloss brand or product is buzzing around the beauty world, I have this alien-like radar that sounds off in my brain until I go scope it out. This was pretty much the case when I bought the Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss last week. I kept seeing this brand get name dropped in youtube videos and blogs, THEN Birchbox had to go and include it in one of their monthly boxes. I didn’t get it in my box, but Birchbox was shipping this product for free. And I had 100 Birchbox points to use ($10), AND there was a 20% off Birchbox coupon floating around… so I ended up getting this $20 lip gloss for $6, shipped. Cuz that’s how I roll.

Review & Swatches: Origins VitaZing

I’m pretty sure I’ve made it painfully obvious that I really enjoy my BB Creams. The coverage, the convenience and the cost are the three C’s that keep me coming back. HOWEVER, I’m sad to say that most BB Creams aren’t made with the best ingredients. I found Origins VitaZing during my search for a product that I could use as a base under my foundation, provide some coverage, and contain decent ingredients.

Review & Swatches of Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot Eyeliners

Review & Swatches of Urban Decay 24/7 Jackpot Eyeliners

Urban Decay just ended their latest Friends & Family sale, 25% off! I picked up some De-Slick Skindinavia spray and the super duper awesome 24/7 Jackpot eye pencil set.

This set ROCKS! It’s $39 (although I only paid $29.25 because of the sale). It comes with NINE travel-sized pencils and one full size pencil, which is an $18 value in itself. You get the most popular color, Zero (black), in the full size. The other nine pencils are various shades of blue, green, purple, etc. They are travel sized, but they will still last a pretty long time because you most likely won’t be using them as everyday liners.

Review: e.l.f. Mineral Personal Blend Foundation Quad

I have been loving ELF’s Studio line lately. This newly launched mineral foundation quad caught my eye a couple weeks ago, so I decided to give her a whirl. I haven’t been huge on mineral foundations for a couple years now (mainly because they’re messy and inconvenient), but since it’s summertime, I figured my face would appreciate it if I layed off the heavier products for awhile.

Stila recently had a super sweet sale going down on their website. The One Step Makeup that normally sells for $44, is on clearance for $14.99. On top of that, they had a “Buy one get one free” coupon code, so I picked up two of the Stila One Step Foundations for $14.99. Holla!

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!
