NYX Cosmetics Haul

NYX Cosmetics Haul

For the 4th of July, NYX Cosmetics offered¬†all of their products at 40% off. I was more than happy to take advantage of this deal. Ulta had a similar NYX sale during the week of Independence Day, but palettes were excluded from that sale. This was really the only reason I decided to order from the NYX website. Both were …

New York Color (NYC) Haul


Last week at Rite-Aid, NYC was on sale and there were coupons on the display in the store. This led to some very cheap items, so I couldn’t pass it up. It’s certainly not an expensive brand, even when paying full retail price. NYC isn’t a drugstore brand that I tend to make purchases from, other than nail polish, so …

Ipsy: July 2014

ipsy july 2014

I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for about six months. Though there have been a few months where I’ve been less than pleased, most months I do get a bag filled with things I will use or am excited to try. This month was no different. About Ipsy: Ipsy is a monthly subscription service. Subscribers pay $10 per month for a …

Memebox: Superbox #25 Foot Care

Memebox Superbox #25 FootCare

My feet¬†always seem to need some sort of care. It seems that no matter what I do, my heels are always dry and cracking. My cuticles are either growing halfway up my toenails or cracked and bleeding. I also love to forego socks in summertime, so sandals and other shoes are occasionally stinky! When Memebox offered their first foot care …

Memebox: Scentbox #3 Grapefruit

Memebox Scentbox Grapefruit

Oddly enough, the grapefruit box was the one I was least excited about when placing my order for the Scentbox bundle. After working my way through each box and sampling the items included, this box turned out to be my favorite. About Memebox Global: Memebox is not a typical subscription service, with multiple boxes released each month and no obligation …

Memebox: Scentbox #1 Rose

Memebox Scentbox Rose

When Memebox initially announced their scentbox offerings, I was extremely excited. The first boxes–rose, baby powder, and grapefruit–were offered in a bundle for $30 (or $15 each). Needless to say, I purchased the bundle. I wasn’t as excited about the grapefruit box, but it was essentially a freebie. I’m not sure if it’s my age or just wanting a change …

Review: Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lip Soother

Neutrogena MoistureShine Lip Soother

Chapped lips are a huge issue for me, no matter the season. Dry, cracking, bleeding lips are not a good base for any lip product, so I have to work very hard to keep my lips in good shape. I’ve tried so many balms and glosses, but these are my current favorite. These glosses are very thick with just a …

Birchbox: July 2014

I’ll admit that my interest in Birchbox has never been very high. Reading reviews of previous boxes, I always felt that there were just too many little odd lifestyle items thrown in–like tea bags and chocolate bars. There also seemed to be a lot of foil and perfume samples. I don’t mind foils, but I don’t feel like those are …
