Starlooks lip liner pencil in “Cherry Cedar” – $13 from my March Starbox!


March Starlooks Box

26 Mar


Starlooks Starbox Subscription – $15/month. Ends up costing me around $17.68 with shipping every month.


(Nail polish is Revlon ColorStay in “Delicious” and matches my new lipstick perfectly!)

The March Starbox box brought me a bright red lipstick in the color “Kinky” ($12 retail), a lip liner in “Cherry Cedar” ($12 retail), a longwear eyeliner pot in “black hole” (retail $13).

This month was curated by a youtube make up artist Ashley Hackman. I’ve never heard of her, so I’ll have to check her out

I really like the quality of the starlooks makeup, but I do worry that I’ll get sent random colors each month! This red, for example, is too cool toned for my complexion. The anticipation is addicting, though.

Try out their monthly subscription box with my referral link, please!

Julep March Lucky Mystery Box – Aislinn

26 Mar


Nail colors: Cassie, Lexie, Any, Jennifer, Kennedy, Tracy, Aislinn, Tatiana, and Gianna is the gold glitter at the top.

Julep $24.99 Lucky Mystery Box + $10 upgrade at check out + used a coupon for a free gold polish! $34.99 total.

9 polishes, a mint condition pedi creme, plus a clear polish and two neon powder dipping set for a textured nail look. Bonus 2 packets of forget me not flower seeds. The three colors on the left were the $10 upgrade, damn that lack of impulse control!
This is Aislinn. It was a neat polish, but it was so terrible to remove that I might just throw it away. Aside from the difficulty of removing glitter polish, it dyed my skin a dark bluish green that didn’t go away for two days. Wear at your own risk!

Remember, you can get your first Julep box free with choice FREEBOX, you will only pay the shipping fee.

J’Adore VoxBox from Influenster

20 Mar


So I signed up for influenster a couple months ago not really understanding what it was and then never really exploring it. I forgot about it until they sent me an email that I qualified to receive a voxbox. It seems the trade off for getting a free box of items is that we receive items to review and to encourage online social interaction for these brands.

This was the J’Adore box. I’ve never used false eyelashes, buy my mom saw them and claimed them right away. My 3 year old niece ended up enjoying most of the Hershey kisses. She saw which drawer I put them in, I later found her standing next to a pile of empty wrappers! I haven’t used the frizz ease product yet, for sure will try it next tune I straighten my hair (a few times a year, max). Aaand the face mask…gave it away to a friend. I feel sometimes I don’t have the time or patience to do a mask. Smells good, at least. I’ve been way more in to tea lately, enjoying these so far.

I hope I keep getting more boxes!
