Bath & Body Works Vampire Blood For Halloween 2017

Halloween at Bath & Body Works is in full swing and one of my favorite Halloween scents is Vampire Blood. The scent is so good with blood-red berries, night-blooming jasmine & devilishly dark plum. It has a unique scent that is both sweet and flowery.

The Bath & Body Works Vampire Blood scent comes in the Hand Cream, PocketBac, Foaming Hand Soap, Candle and I also picked up the Light-Up Bat PocketBac holder.

I love the red and black packaging with the bat too. It’s both cute and scary so kids love it too! It has a great goth look to it and a collection would look great in a gift basket.

Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer Review

I received a sample sized Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer in my August 2017 Glossybox and it’s really nice.

What’s to love?

I am a huge fan of brow tamers and the Pixi by Petra formula is great. It does set, shape and hold my brows and I love that it’s Not tested on animals. It also does not make my brows sticky or goopy. It has aloe vera and panthenol.

My only issue is that I don’t use a lot of brow tamer. This tube will probably last me for 3 months which I guess is a good thing! I do like that this one is $10 for the full-sized tube which is super reasonable. I don’t like to pay a lot for brow tamers and this one does the job at the right price for me.

The Pixi by Petra brand is great and I love their stuff.

I did a HUGE Bath & Body Works Halloween 2017 Haul so do check it out!

Clarins Lip Comfort Oil Review

My new favorite Lip Oil for Fall is the Clarins Lip Comfort Oil. I got this sample in my August Birchbox. This luxury lip oil comes in 7 high shine finishes including Mint, Honey, Raspberry, Red Berry, Honey Glam (which has gold flecks), Tangerine and Candy (which is pink). I have Mint.

What’s to love?

According to Sephora this Lip Oil…

This pure plant oil formula—with a blend of hazelnut and organic jojoba oils—nourishes, smooths, and enhances lips while forming a protective layer of transparent color to help lock in moisture for deep hydration.

I found the formula to be super easy to apply and wear. It’s not sticky or heavy and it makes my lips shine. The colors are supposed to have a bit of a tint but the mint I have is clear.

The mint formula has a bit of a tingle and gives a plumping effect.  Candy & Tangerine react to the pH of your lips, giving them a customized shade of pink, for a natural, high-shine result and Honey Glam provides a shimmering result.

You can use it alone, under or on top of lipstick.

Full-Sized Price: $26 and it’s Made in France.

August 2017 Birchbox Review

I was going to cancel  Birchbox but I forgot and then I got my August box which was pretty nice so I think I’ll keep going for the holiday season!

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil –  This mint oil is soft and pretty on my lips! So Full-Sized Price: $26

JUARA Coconut Illipe Hand & Nail Balm – This one smells amazing! Full-Sized Price: $20

Lord & Berry Line/Shade Eye Pencil – I love the Lord & Berry Line and this black eye pencil is so smooth. Full-Sized Price: $19

Number 4 Sugar Texturizing Spray – You can see in my video that this spray makes my hair very shiny. Full-Sized Price: $22

Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes – I really want a pack of these. They smell earthy and feel so fresh but they are a bit pricey. Full-Sized Price: $24 (for 20 wipes).

So over all a good month for Birchbox, I’m glad I forgot to cancel.

Target Up & Up Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Review

I got a 25 pack of the Target Up & Up Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in my August Target beauty box.

After trying these Towelettes I found them to work fairy well at removing my makeup but I did have to scrub a bit to get my mascara off. I’m also not sure I love the smell, they have a very strong floral scent that bothered my nose although they did not irritate my skin. They are paraben-free.

I think my favorite makeup removers are the Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea Extract.

Check out my August 2017 Target Beauty Box unboxing on YouTube too!

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume II Review

I received the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume II in my August Boxycharm Box and it’s gorgeous! I am thrilled to have gotten this palette as part of my Boxycharm Box.

What’s to love?

First up, I love the case. It’s gold with a pretty blue, purple and pink sea scape.

The palette itself is amazing too. The shades are super pigmented and almost feel like a cream. I swatched the shades below although the riptide shade does not look blue to me. At first I thought it was dark green but it’s actually more of a charcoal. My favorite shade is marina!

The shades from left to right are…

  • pearl (white shimmer)
  • conch (off white)
  • sunset (yellow gold)
  • marina (caramel)
  • seaside (chestnut)
  • siren (dark brown)
  • breezy (shimmering slate)
  • riptide (steel blue)

I also found the shades to be very blendable and long lasting. They have no scent although I do wish they had the “Tarte” vanilla scent as I love that smell!

The palette is Made in Italy and retails for $36.

Also check out my video unboxing of the August 2017 Boxycharm Box!

Here’s what I got in my August 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag.

Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash – I love trying new mascara and this one looks nice. Full-Sized Price: $25

Formula 10.0.06 Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask – I totally remember Ten O Six when I was a teen. This new Strawberry + Yarrow mud mask looks so cool! Full-Sized Price: $6.99

Hikari Shimmer Bronzer Flush – This is a neat 4 shade blush/bronzer.

The Balm Voyage Kuwakaribisha Shadow Luminizer – This shade is so pretty and shimmery.
