Walmart Beauty Box : Spring 2016

Here’s another Walmart Beauty Box! They’re “free” ($5 shipping per quarter) and they now let you choose from one of two beauty profiles. They automatically chose “trendsetter” for me, since I was at the time under 30. The millennials, they love trends! I’ve gone on and on about why I love this box, but it really…

ColourPop Cosmetics First Purchase

I finally broke down and made a very small order from ColourPop Cosmetics. For the unfamiliar, they’re a makeup brand based in L.A. that doesn’t test products on animals (I’m unclear whether they’re totally “cruelty-free” or not, but they do say that some of their products are vegan.) How cute is it that they handwrite…

Fifty Shades: The Movie!

So I watched the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. (PS No, I didn’t buy a ticket –coughcough-) I watched it with my boyfriend, who had not read the books.  (Well, that’s not entirely true–he did read large passages of the first book to me. In a Cajun accent, because that actually somehow makes more sense…

Naturebox Review

For anyone unfamiliar with Naturebox, it’s a “healthy” (they have dietitians and nutritionists on staff), “natural” snack sampler of 5, 10 or 20 4oz bags of nuts, seeds, granola and dried fruit.  I think the concept is pretty neat–you get snacks mailed once a month and you have the option to buy more of what you…

Colgate® SlimSoft™

I received a complimentary Colgate® SlimSoft™ toothbrush (as well as Colgate toothpaste and mouthwash) through the Influenster program for review. When I first felt the bristles with my thumb, I was actually impressed with how soft and flexible they were.  Looking at the bristles, you can see how thin they become at the very end, which…

Ipsy Bag Review: May 2013

The Bag/Theme: VERY cute, loved that it was blues and orange.  I’m not a fan of pink.  The theme was “Spring Fling”, which I feel is a little late for the season and a very UGH phrase, anyway.  This is the FIRST bag where they’ve confirmed that they chose products based on our website profiles. Under…

Ipsy Bag Review: April 2013

The Bag: This bag is a white textured material with a pink zipper, and a pink striped silk lining.  I don’t think white bags and makeup mix well, so I probably won’t use this.  Cute, though! Two Cosmetics Duo Eyeshadow in Heartache: I think pink eyeshadow is underused.  These were two colours that didn’t seem…

Ipsy March 2013: Anchors Aweigh!

The Bag – Very cute nautical print, but it felt a little flimsy.  Not sure how much I’d use this in my purse.  I prefer slightly more durable bags because I’m pretty rough on my stuff! The Shipping – The tracking reports that they shipped the piece on the 6th, but I didn’t get the…
