Shop Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer At ShopAtHome.com!

Press Sample Love amazing deals?  Then I have one you may want to hear about for you today! ShopAtHome.com sent me a sample of Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to share with you.  Can you believe this is my first time trying this stuff?  I’m almost ashamed to admit that!  Part of what holds me back on some higher end items is that the price (obviously!) and as a mom I always think “Does Jacob (my kiddo) need anything before I splurge?” and as a growing 9 year old, the answer is usually “YES!” Well I finally tried it and now I need to stock up a bit while this sale is on! Before I get into it, lets talk about ShopAtHome.com a bit.  What is ShopAtHome.com? They are a website dedicated to bringing you coupons to your favorite shops, cash back and reward points to redeem for gift cards!  Right now they…

IPSY March 2015 Reveal

Nothing To Disclose I’m trying to get a little more into the habit of posting items I purchase or subscribe to so you have a little idea of what I purchase or indulge in. Today I have my reveal of my March 2015 Ipsy bag.  I have been a subscriber to Ipsy for over a year now, and overall it is a subscription bag I’ve been happy with and I rarely feel like I “wasted” ten bucks on it. The theme of the bag was Floral Fantasy. The zippered makeup bag that came with this months subscription is cute (my boyfriend thought otherwise though..) and came with a vibrant blue with grey flowers that had pops of neon yellow and magenta. NYX Lip Butter in Hunk NYX Lip Butter in the shade ‘Hunk’ was the item I was most excited about.  While it looks dark in the tube, NYX Lip…

Prescriptives Custom Blend Foundation Review

Press Sample Today’s post is a little different than usual.  It’s not just a review on a product, but also on the service used to create the product. Prescriptives has a Custom Blend Foundation Service is an online service and you have a virtual appointment with a Prescriptives Beauty Genius in order to create a foundation that is blended to perfectly match your particular skin tone/undertones so it looks seamless. If you have trouble finding a foundation to match your skin tone, this is PERFECT for you! To start the appointment, my Beauty Genius (Bobby was AMAZING!) needed a photo of me without makeup that was taken in natural lighting.  During the appointment (it was a video chat!) my Beauty Genius asked some questions to get a feel for what I want in a foundation.  Did I want a dewy complexion or matte?  Somewhere in between?  What kind of coverage was I looking for?  What kind of skin…

Mia Mariu Create Your Perfect Canvas Review & Giveaway

Press Sample I’ve said this so many times on my blog, but I am NOT a morning person.  At all.  When I get ready for work, it’s a mad dash to get out the door.  One thing I won’t leave without is a little foundation, some concealer, a little blush and usually mascara.  If I don’t at least do that, I look tired and pretty much like I haven’t slept in days. I was given the opportunity to try out Mia Mariu Perfecting Finish Mineral Line – I was more than happy to give it a try!  I’m not all that fond of liquid foundation, I can use it, but it’s not my favorite and Mia Mariu gives the option of powder or liquid foundation. Here are the items I received.  Lets take a closer look at each one. Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation Primer Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer was designed to…
