Beautybarbaby order

 

 

I’ve been hearing a lot about Beauty Bar Baby. So I decided to try them out. I grabbed a couple items to test out. This is what I got and I’m posting a look I did with these three items.

If you wish to try them out too you can find them here https://www.etsy.com/shop/BeautyBarBaby?ref=l2-shopheader-name

The swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

This is called Devils Breath it’s a nice red with gold shimmer through it. It is very pigmented and blended out smoothly. I really like this color.

I wanted a color I could use in my crease or as a liner if I wanted. So I picked out a nice matte brown called Dark Chocolate. This seemed a little patchy at first but blended out nicely with a brush. It’s very pigmented and easy to work with. I know some dark mattes can be difficult to blend out.

This is their waterproof gel liner in black. Okay the reason it took my so long to do this post is cause I’ve been trying to out and I wanted to see if I could get it to work on my waterline. I tried setting, putting a really small amount and setting it and my eyes just didn’t like it on the water line. It went everywhere in the corners of my eyes after an hour of wearing it. Maybe my eyes water just too much for this product. It’s nice and creamy, works great for winged liner. But as far as my waterline goes, it just didn’t work for me. I will continue to use it for winged liner or as a base for shadow.

This is a look I created with all the products. I took the pics right after I finished the look. It wasn’t till later that I wanted to say “for the Horde!” These are great colors for the horde sense they’re crest is more red, black, & brown and the Alliance is Gold, Silver, & Blue.

Oh, they also sent candy. They didn’t last long after I opened the package hehe.

Starrlight Jewelry -&- Sanctuary review…

0

I found out about this store awhile ago. Looking for jewelry for my wedding. I didn’t find what I want looking for at the time. But I still kept an eye on this store and waited till I had money to purchase from them. I really wish I could make an order once every month but I don’t have that kind of money.
So in May when I had some extra money I ordered What’s in the box. It’s a mystery box full of different items. They have 2 different boxes you can buy, one is $15.00 and the other is $25.00. The smaller one has $30.00 worth of products and the larger one you get $50.00 worth of products in it. You don’t know what’s in the box but you can make comments on types of products you like, what colors you like/dislike, wheather you have your ears pierced or gauged. Also if you have allergies to certain metals or if you’d prefer home decor. It’s really neat.
What’s unique about not just these boxes but the store in general. A great deal of the procedes go to animal sanctuaries. With the mystery box I got, $20.00 of the $25.00 I spent went to Bat World santuary. How I know where it went is cause the money is sent to the shelter of the month. There’s a new shelter each month. May was Bat awareness month. The one for July is Joeys Feline Friends.
The shipping for the boxes veries. All products are handmade by the owner of the store. She makes these while taking care of animals for her sanctuary. So if unpredictable things happen like weather or illness it will take a little longer for your package to get to you. I ordered my box May 20 and I didn’t get it till June 23. I don’t mind waiting that long for products especially if they’re of good quality. Also I know life happens and things can get difficult. The products I got are of great quality. I love all the items I recieved. Another reason why I wasn’t upset is cause I mostly ordered this to donate. I just thought it would be nice to get a little surprise in the mail. I completely forgot about the package. When I went to the post office on my birthday I got it. It was like a birthday present to myself lol.
Anyways, I want to show you what I got in my box and I’ll put a link at the end of the post to where you can purchase from this store.

When I first opened the box I saw these. I really had no idea what they were at first lol. After reading the packaging I found they are really strong magnets. My husband really enjoys playing with these lol…

This is a ring with an adjustable band on it. It’s really cute and I’ve been wearing it almost every day sense I got it. Though, it’s a little big so it catches on some things so I usually take it off when I’m doing house work so it doesn’t break or dig into my finger.

 

dscn4462

 

I really like these earrings too. I’ve been wearing them almost everyday too.I like to wear earrings when my hair is up and it seems like it’s always like that during the summer. I took this pick with these earrings hanging off my Jack in the Box clown. I think it made a nice background hehe.

 

dscn4450

 

These are so cute, sense I’ve been wearing my hair up so much I’ve been putting these little guys right into my pony to poke out. Though, they’re a little hard to see sense my hair is dyed black lol but that’s okay I still like them.

 

dscn4460

 

This is so pretty, I’ve only worn it a couple times. I’m trying to wear more necklaces sense we don’t have any little ones trying to grab the shiny’s hanging on anyone lol.

 

dscn4458

 

Same goes for this one, but I also don’t really wear bracelets that often but I do like this one. I try to wear it. I want to start wearing more bracelets sense I don’t wear a watch anymore really. So I’m still happy with this piece (^_^).

 

dscn4449

 

haven’t been able to wear this sense I don’t have a chain for it but I am on the hunt for one. I love dog tags and the way they look. This one is so pretty! I love it!

 

dscn4455

 

Lastly I got some bath salt. Haven’t had a chance to use this yet but I really want to. It’ll be nice to soak my feet using this.

So that’s pretty much all I got in the box, besides cards for different companies. Oh and a couple really cute post cards.

Overall I’m really happy with this Mystery box. I put everything on that I could wear at once when I got this. I will definitely order from this company again!

Bruttles Gourmet Confections…

dscn3989

Bruttles is a local store here in Spokane, WA. My husband noticed them while we were walking downtown. He know’s I have a weakness for sweets hehe. So we went in and it was a really cute store. It’s family owned and have been using the same recipe for 60 years. everything is still made the same way as it was back then.
Now bruttles are a really soft peanut brittle. Think of a gourmet butterfinger but better. These are so delicious. Oh and all their products are gluten-free besides the Bruttles crunch cause it contains pretzels. Which is amazing! I go there at least once a month. I’m so bad cause if I could afford to get it more often I would lol. They also do gift packs. (guess what everyone in my family is getting this Christmas hehe). I want to show you what I got in a gift pack that costs $5.75. This is one of the small ones. They do have one that costs $37.50. I’ll put a link at the end of the post to their website, if you wish to ordered some of this. Or if you live in the Spokane, WA area you can see where they are located. (^_^)
So here’s what’s in the small one I got…
It’s super cute, and comes in a see through package tied with a pretty ribbon(colors of ribbon and foil can vary)…

DSCN3994
1oz soft peanut butter brittle… 2 chocolate dipped peanut brittles… 1 soft caramel, this is soft and doesn’t stick to your teeth like most caramels…

Springfling VoxBox from Influenster…

For those who don’t know, Influenster is a subscription box. But it’s not for every month and you don’t pay anything for it. Though, to get future boxes you have to test out and review the products you receive in your box.  If you’d like to sign up you can follow this link http://www.influenster.com. Onto the box…

dscn4274

In this box I got…

Rimmel london Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara. It retails for $5.99. I do like Rimmel London Products. Though, I’ve never tried their mascara. Mostly because I seem to never run out of it. I always seem to get a new mascara somehow with out notice. I have a few others that I haven’t even tried yet sitting in my drawer. So yeah, it’ll be nice to try this out.

dscn4281

 

Kiss Everlasting French Nails. They retail for $6.49. I’ve never tried these, though, my friend wore this brand for my wedding and she seemed to like them. I guess I’ll see how they hold up through cleaning and what not. If they bust off just from cleaning then I don’t think I’ll purchase these in the future… but we’ll see…

 

 

dscn4278

 

Peach Pie Car Freshener from the Labor Day movie. I have no interest in this movie… But I guess it’s nice we got a airfreshener for my moms car sense I don’t drive. This was put in the box to promote the movie I’m guessing sense there’s no price listed for it. The card in the box only talks about the movie for the description of the products.

dscn4277

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance. Retails for 3.99 to 4.99 depends where you live and the store you shop at. Okay, My monthly curse isn’t for 2 weeks, so I don’t know when I’ll use these. But for the record I’ve used them before and they’re no different then the regular Playtex tampons. The only differnce is packaging and these ones say sport. Other wise they work the same and the normal ones.

dscn4275
Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Lotion. Retails for $2.49 for a 2.5oz bottle and $10.99 for a 13.5oz bottle. I have to say the smell of Nivea has never changed. I opened this and smelled it… and I remembered my great grandma’s feet. Why, you ask. Because I used to rub Nivea lotion on her feet when I was younger… So yeah… Not sure how I feel about this…

dscn4282

 

Then lastly a select amount of Influensters, got Softlips Cube. This retails for $3.49. Never heard of this and I’m intrigued to try it out…

My review for Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor…

0

DSCN2669

I got approved to try out and review Gillette Venus razor from Influenster. Hopefully I like it and it doesn’t give me a razor burn or ingrown hairs like most razors do.

Tested razor:
Tested the razor out. First of all I don’t like the little holder they sent with it. No matter where I put it in the shower it kept falling down. Being blind as a bat, that hurts to step on when you don’t see it fall off the wall.
It wasn’t the smoothest shave i’ve ever had. I also have a lot of red bumps on my legs that I don’t noramally get. They don’t burn like razor burn. They’re just there almost like my skin either didn’t like the razor or it didn’t like the moisture strip that was on it. Legs are getting a bit itchy as well. Looking at them they’re really dry. They’re not usally dry after I shave. So the moisture strip didn’t work a whole heck of a lot. I don’t noramally put lotion on my legs after shaving, cause I just don’t need it usually. The last time my legs flaked like this is when I got my tattoo on my leg. So, I’m not sure if I’ll use this again sense I’m breaking out with tiny red bumps and are really itchy now. I think I’ll just stick with what I was doing before.
Sense the sample came with 2 razor heads I let my mom try it out. She really likes it. She said she usually itches after shaving and she didn’t itch after using this. So she might buy this for herself. We both have sensitive skin and I guess my skin is just a bit more sensitive then hers. But as for me I’m not going to use it again. I don’t know what it is on the conditioning strip that I’m allergic to but there’s something. I don’t know if there’s gluten in the ingridents or what. So yeah, that’s my thoughts and my moms.

Q-tips® Precision Tips

0

I use Q-tips while putting on makeup. I was really happy when I received Q-tips Precision tips In my I do Voxbox. Sense they’re pointy, it’s easier to clean up under the eyes, making a sharp edge on the outer edge of the shadow. As well as, using it to clean up around the mouth when the lipstick decided to take a detour from your mouth. I have also used them to clean up around my nails after painting them. They help a lot, especially when I start to shake while cleaning up the polish. They’re durable and soft.
Would I recommend? Yes.

Luster NOW! Instant Whitening Toothpaste

0
I was sent a sample of Luster Now! Instant Whitening Toothpaste from LUSTER Premium Whitening and Influenster. I’ve been using it everyday, twice a day, for the past week, sense I got it, and I love it. My teeth are already a shade and a half lighter. Planning on continuing using this product. Now I won’t have to get my teeth whitened before my wedding!
It smells like mint, and tastes good. I also have very sensitive teeth and sense using this, my teeth haven’t hurt from eating cold foods or cold drinks. That certainly makes me happy.
Will I purchase in the future? Yes.
Would I recommend to friends or family? Yes.

Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid

0

I've been using the Olay fresh effects va-va-vivid cleansing system sense march 1, the day I got it. It's made my face feel fresh and soft. I love how it's small and portable. The unique shape of the cleanser gets all the hard to reach places on my face. I've always had a hard time making sure around my nose and piercing were clean. With this I can get around my face no problem as well as making sure my piercings are staying clean too. The cleansing solution that comes with it is very nice. It doesn't smell, and it's not harsh on my skin. I have very sensitive skin. So when I use something that doesn't make me break out or get a rash after using it, is a winner in my book. The cleansing system costs 12.99 which compared to other cleansing systems is a really great price. To purchase a full size of the fresh effects shine shine go away that comes with the cleanser is only 6.99 and that's for a 5oz. The one that comes in the kit is only 0.68oz. I do plan on purchasing the full size. I'm also going to look into get the lotion. Cause rite now I've just been using my cetephil lotion after I use the cleansing system. You can purchase the Olay fresh effects products on http://www.olayfresheffects.com, http://www.amazon.com, http://www.Drugstore.com, http://www.Target.com, http://www.Walmart.com as well as any other site that carries Olay.
