E.L.F. Pink Kiss Tinted Lip Oil

Press Sample Affiliate Link A few months ago I joined a new network that is specifically geared toward Instagram and Youtube.  While I love my blog, sometimes I get a little overwhelmed when work is busier and my son’s schedule is all over the place. The network is Octoly (for those curious) and it allows me to try out new brands and do mini reviews or features on my Instagram account. Tonight’s review is on a product I got through Octoly and I decided to do the mini Instagram feature as well as expand it into a normal post. That review is on the E.L.F. Pink Kiss Tinted Lip Oil. I’ve seen a few different tinted lip oils over the last 2 months and I actually enjoy them. I’m not really a gloss girl because the tacky feeling of gloss bothers me a little. Tinted lip oils are generally really smooth, moisturizing and…

Gallany Cosmetics

Press Sample from Gallany Cosmetics I am so excited about today’s post! I was recently introduced to a new cosmetic brand, and I’m really confused as to why I haven’t heard of them before! I’m sharing them with you today, and that brand is Gallany Cosmetics! I had the amazing opportunity to select a couple products from Gallany Cosmetics, and I picked out a couple items, and they sent everything shown above. I got a really nice mix of lip products too (and we all know I love my lip products!) We’ll go through each item, then I’ll show you my full face wearing a couple of the items. In total I received a foundation powder (I prefer powders to liquids since I have icky, oily skin), a gel serum concealer, 3 lipgloss shades, 2 creme satin lipsticks and a blush duo. I already need more and have a shopping wishlist,…

BoxyCharm May 2015 Beauty Subscription Box Reveal & First Impressions

Press Sample I’m fairly big into subscription boxes and have a few I dabble in from time to time.  I also have a few that I’ve dropped from my subscription list.  I was curious about BoxyCharm and had heard some good things about them, so when I got an email asking if I wanted to try it out and review a box on my blog, I was excited to see what they had to offer. My box arrived this past Thursday, so here is what I received in my May 2015 BoxyCharm and my initial thoughts. When opening the box I was greeted by the statement Bold & Beautiful.  It says: Be bold. Be bright. Be beautiful.  Charmers, this May, go beyond your comfort zone and boldly dare to be your own kind of beautiful. My box has 5 full size items, which I really loved. A lot of boxes…

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…
