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.

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.

Micro Mini Beauty Blender – This little green beauty blender is pretty darn cute! Price for 2: $18

Clinique HM Dual-Ended High Impact Masacara & Primo Duo – My favorite item in the August box is this mascara duo from Clinique! Price: $16

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick – I’m super excited to try this foundation stick. I got the Satin Finish Shell shade. Full-Sized Price: $46

KORRES Golden Krocus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum – This reminds me of something from Harry Potter! Can’t wait to try it. Full-Sized Price: $98

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Backdoor Review

I absolutely love the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick and Amulet is one of my all time favorites but it’s getting low. However instead of replacing it I decided to try another Metallized shade for Fall. The shade I chose is called Backdoor and it’s a really nice bronzy shade.

Below is Backdoor on the left and Amulet on the right. Backdoor is a bit more bronzy than Amulet and both have a Metallized finish.

What’s to love?

The Urban Decay Vice Lipstick feels so luxurious to me. It goes on smooth and has amazing lasting power. The pigmentation is also amazing and people always ask me what brand I’m wearing when I go out in it.

I love this shade for Fall, it goes with everything and looks so pretty.

Bonnie’s July 2017 Beauty Favorites

Here’s my July favorites! I feel like I’m a bit disorganized this month but the thought of Fall scents and colors is getting me through to the end of Summer!

Here’s the list of my July Favorites and my video reveal…

My crocheted tiara – My girlfriend runs a blog and Etsy store called Imperial Crochet and I really wanted to show off her work (she’s amazing) so do stop by her blog and Etsy Store as she’s got some really nice crocheted items including the tiara I’m wearing.

Lush Big Blue Bath Bomb – Big Blue delivers a burst of color and scent that will fill your bathroom with Lavender and Lemon, but the thing I like best is the seaweed. You get Arame Seaweed and Seaweed Absolute in Big Blue which makes for a soothing bath experience.

GlamGlow SUPERCLEANSE – This cleanser dissolves oil & makeup, rinsing away pore-clogging debris, impurities & excess oil.

NEW Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss – The Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss comes in 8 shades — I got Mood which is a nice light pink.

bareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder – The bareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder duo has two large pans of pressed powder — one is matte and the other is glow.

NUDESTIX Magnetic Matte Lip Color in Rose – I love this beautiful matte stick, it’s the perfect Fall color for me.

Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara – This makes my bottom lashes pop! I love it.

Adoratherapy Vitality Chakra Boost – This product has “essential oils, absolutes, and gem and flower essences, in a base of organic Jojoba blends” and I have to say that it really does have a relaxing effect.

Bath & Body Works NEW Shapeable Soap – The Shapeable Soap comes in an aerosol can (like shaving cream) and either squirts out in thin ribbons or a mound if you hold the can close to your hand.

Bath & Body Works Soap! This is from last year but I’m using it now and can’t wait for Fall.

Blinc Electric Eyes Palette Review

I received the Blinc Electric Eyes Palette in my July Boxycharm Box and WOW is this Boxycharm branded palette nice.

What’s to love?

This amazing palette has 5 creamy shades including Orpime, Rhodoni, Vanadini, Autuni and Sphene which are unusual names but the most beautiful jewel tone shades I have seen.

Below I’ve swatched Rhodoni, Vanadini and Sphene.

I really love the creamy metallic shine of these long lasting shades and the pink one is my favorite so far. I got no creasing that they look nice on my over 40 eyes!

So while I’ve never heard of this brand I am super excited to have gotten this palette. I think it’s going to be one of my Fall favorites! The neutral shades remind me of Fall leaves.

Price: $45

Here’s what I got!

I did have a problem with the Doucce blush, it came broken and I’ll be contacting Glossybox. Overall I think this was a great box this month!

You can see my video unboxing of the July 2017 Glossybox below!

Urban Decay Naked Heat Is Here!

I absolutely love the the Urban Decay Naked line. I have the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette and it’s one of my favorites. So I’m going nuts over the new release of the Urban Decay Naked Heat which has some gorgeous shades that include:

  • Ounce (ivory shimmer)
  • Chaser (light nude matte)
  • Sauced (soft terra-cotta matte)
  • Low Blow (brown matte)

  • Cayenne (deep terra-cotta matte)
  • En Fuego (burgundy matte)
  • Ashes (deep reddish-brown matte)
  • Ember (deep metallic copper-burgundy)

The palette is $54 and it’s currently sold out on Ulta and Sephora and it’s supposed to be in stores at Ulta on July 9th.

And if that wasn’t cool enough there’s also the Limited Edition Heat Vice Lipstick Collection which includes:

  • Scorched – Metallized (metallic copper)
  • Heat – Metallized (burnt red w/gold pearl)
  • Fuel – Cream (warm peachy nude)

This entire set looks amazing and it’s calling my name!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Review

I received a sample of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in my June Sephora Play! Box in the K-Dub shade which is a bold fuchsia.

What’s to love?

So I’m going to say WOW about this liquid lipstick. I love Kat Von D and I really need to do a haul of her stuff. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick comes in 20 shades that range from subtle (Noble petal pink nude) to wild (Dreamer neon turquoise) and I am loving this formula.

I have issues with liquid lipsticks that dry out on my lips but this one worked fine and gave me a nice creamy texture that looked really pretty on me. It also had decent staying power (expect for greasy food) and the pigmentation is amazing, I had no patchy spots.

I got quite a few compliments wearing this the K-Dub shade and I also love that it has a sugary scent and taste.

Retail price: $20
