Join Me On YouTube!

Greetings!

I rarely do these types of blog posts but I wanted to put this out there! I started Vlogging in February of last year and I now have 154 videos. I really enjoy sharing my hauls and boxes via video and I hope you do too.

However YouTube has new requirements for being monetized. You need 4000 watch hours (which I have) and 1,000 subscribers (which I almost have). I really want to stay monetized because the money I make just buys more products that I can share.

Anyway if you like my channel please do give it a subscribe here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8__djLM1eA8W3FnXU7avEQ.

Thanks so much for all the support my WordPress friends have given over the years. I love blogging here! Share your Beauty channels too, I’d love to check them out : )

PS – Here’s new newest Sephora Play Unboxing for January.

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.

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.

Clinique Jonathan Adler Chic Colour Set Review

Today I got my Clinique Jonathan Adler Chic Colour Set from Elder-Beerman. I also got a Jonathan Adler Clinique Gift with Purchase.

What’s to love?

First up the compact with this palette is amazing. It’s got a blue and aqua fabric case which is so pretty. It’s well constructed with a very nice mirror and 13 round eye shadow shades.

I am a huge fan of Clinique eye shadow and these are just as nice. The colors are my favorites with brows, taupe, green, blue, pink, purple and bronze in the mix. They are nice and pigmented and look so pretty on my eyes.

My only issue is with the brushes. When they are loose they fly out when I open the case so I took those out.

Overall I am thrilled with this palette. I think it’s a great deal for $39.
