Boxy Charm (BOXY LUXE) Wild Flower- September 2018

Hello Friends! I have been on a bit of a break because of being so dang sick! This baby is determined to take all my food and all my energy but I definitely got a boost with the arrival of my Boxy Luxe box.

First I want to talk about the launch of Boxy Luxe. It was a bit messy. I think it’s crazy for the company to not think they would have the amount of traffic they did especially with how much they hyped it up. I am beyond grateful I did get thru and received the box. I didn’t think I did at first. It wasn’t until hours later my bestie told me that we did in fact make it on the list!! Talk about an emotional day. Any who lets jump into the goods!

IMG_6607Here she is in all her glory. Let me just say it is so much better in person. I don’t think I have ever been so excited for a box! IMG_6610First up I  received the Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette from tarte. It is stunning and smells like chocolate which is oh so delicious. The shades blend like a dream with amazing pigment and super creaminess. This would also double as a great quick neutral eye palette! MSRP – 45$

Next pictured is the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow Palette. This is a very pretty neautral palette in which you can create multiple looks. It has nice pigment and blends well. There are also chocolately colors as well as greys. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Girlactik Skin Glow Duo. I was really excited about this at first but I do wish I would have gotten the Laura Gellar blush instead now. This is a cream highlight and just doesn’t pack the punch that I love but I will have to keep playing with it to see if I can change my mind. MSRP – 26$

IMG_6609Next up I received the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-wrinkle Booster Serum. I am sooo excited about this serum. I am die hard for the lancome genifique but it is crazy expensive. I am hoping to love this product just as much and maybe have a new favorite serum. Also happy I received the serum instead of the moisturizer because I am currently drowning in moisturizers. lol Juice Beauty is a great all natural, cruelty free brand and I may have to grab more products! MSRP – 80$

Pictured in the middle is the Sol De Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil. This of course smells so amazing like everything else they make and leaves skin with a very natural glow. I thought it would be over the top but it’s really perfect even if you aren’t super tan like moi. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water in the scent centering citrus. It does smell good and leave the skin refreshed but I’m not sure yet if it does anything as a primer. Further testing will have to be done. MSRP – 32$

IMG_6611Who isn’t excited to get brushes?? I have a ton and I always want more. I honestly wanted to purchase these alamar Ojitos brushes just on how cute they are with that green. Lucky for me I thought they would show up in a boxy charm box eventually, so I waited. They are super soft and apply shadow beautifully but I do prefer a natural hair brush for blending. MSRP – 18$

As for this Luxie 732 Airbrush Foundation Brush… well let’s just talk about luxury! It is so soft and my foundation is blended like a dream. It is pricey but OMG it is so amazing. New favorite for sure! MSRP – 38$IMG_6612Lastly in the box I received R+Co High Dive Moisture Shine Cream. I haven’t tried this out yet so the verdict is out still. But I’m not a huge fan of hair products. I will give it a fair chance tho. MSRP – 16$

I got the Lorac Pro Liquid Lipstick. I’m so obsessed with this true red shade. Nude colors just don’t look great on me and I’m all about bold lips. That makes a statement that I love. MSRP – 19$

Last in the picture is the Vintage Cosmetic Company Dolly Bow Make-up Headband. Perfect for keeping your hair back as you clean your skin, apply makeup, or relax with a face mask. MSRP – 4.99$

Oh and don’t forget that super cute tote! That was unexpected. If you weren’t keeping that is a value of $348.99. That is just amazing and So exciting! Boxycharm slays the game again!

Current Beauty Favorites

It’s been a while since I’ve done an updated beauty favorites so here we go! Please let me know in the comments what you are loving. I love knowing what everyone is using and maybe I will find my next beauty favorite!

First up I have to mention Saturday Skin. I will not go into too much detail because I have a dedicated post to them which you can find Here:Saturday Skin- Changed My Life! IMG_4315Next item has been all over blogs and youtube and that is the Maybelline 24H foundation. I found this to give great coverage, it was super smooth, and lasted all day while playing outside with my Son. Two thumbs up from this girl!

Coulorpop has always killed the game with super affordable products and I picked up some more recently for my collection. I love these lippie stix. They are very creamy and have amazing pigment. I also picked up a lipstick and it was Amazing! I can’t get enough! Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.51.16 PM

I recently picked up a new eyeliner and was so blown away by how good it was.. It was covergirl!! This totally shook me because it seems as though lately covergirl has just not been keeping up with trends or product or even packaging. It’s something I just pass by especially when you have brands like colourpop making bomb products at great prices. But after trying this eyeliner I may have to take a second look. I purchased a matte black and it doesn’t transfer or smudge. It is perfect.Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.52.19 PM

Last up is lashes. I am obsessed with a great pair of lashes but when you wear them all the time you appreciate finding affordable lashes. I got this set from Your Lash Bar and they are fantastic. They are 3D faux mink and so fluttery and soft. I have many pairs from YLB and not all are super amazing. But I definitely reccommend the 3D faux Mink. I have the styles Side Car, Lemon Drop, and Appletini. ( From top to bottom)Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.52.32 PM

That is it for today love bugs! I have lots more ideas coming to you soon!!

Saturday Skin- Changed My Life!

Hey Friends. Hope you are all having an awesome week, I know I am! Today I want to tell you about a skincare life that has literally changed my skin. I have been on the hunt for something to clear my pores for so long. Everything promises too but it seems I wake up the next morning to the same ol’ problem I had before- blackheads and uneven skin. These products can be found at Sephora.

Until I received a PR package from Influenster that changed my skincare game. I am not here to tell you to buy it and I’m not getting paid for this post ( I wish). I just really love what this skincare has done for me. Saturday Skin has really done a magic number on my face. My face is now blackhead free- you read that right, not one blackhead. My skin is also extremely smooth and soft. I couldn’t be more happy!!IMG_4310

The products I use are the Rise + Shine Gentle Cleanser retails for 26$. It lathers up to a super rich foam and cleans skin perfectly. It is good for all skin types and is a solution for dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and loss of firmness and elasticity.

The Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel retails for 28$. This guy gently and visibly removes impurities and dullness with natural enzymes like papaya and bromelain. I use this once a week and it really deep cleans after a long week. Plus you can see the dead skin rolling off your face!! Gross but cool.IMG_4315

The Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream retails for 49$. This moisturizer smells so good and leaves skin super soft. It is also anti-aging so I feel like I’m helping my skin for the long run.

These three products are so easy to incorporate into my daily routine and because they work so well I actually look forward to washing my face!IMG_4313

What are you loving and can’t live without at the moment??

Monthly Wish List

Okay so I don’t have a huge list this month because if you watched my last Video (click!!) you would see the huge haul I had and all the goodies I purchased for myself! Anyways as you will see in a blog going up this weekend, I have also purchased some clothing which I will do a look book on or something similar! Okay so moving on! Here is my wish list with a little description of what they are.

Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.34.40 PMA part mousse (but way lighter), part salt spray (but less gritty)—for big, beachy texture with heat-styled polish for fine to medium, healthy hair. Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.36.25 PM

A natural exfoliating foot peel treatment, formulated with alpha hydroxy acids and fruit extracts, to reveal softer, smoother feet in as little as eight to 10 days. Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.32.18 PM

Formula 10.0.6 Be Berry Clear brings out your best with this skin-brightening peel mask. Raspberry and acai deliver powerful antioxidants to help minimize pores, calm flare-ups and smooth skin. Sit back, relax and renew…You deserve it!Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.30.26 PM

An antioxidant-infused water-gel that’s ultralight yet delivers a 179% moisture boost for instantly plumper, smoother skin. For all skin types.Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.31.45 PM

Transform your favorite moisturizer into a BB, CC or fuller-coverage foundation. One drop of Clinique BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops creates sheer cover. Two or three, a flawless finish. Since Clinique BIY takes on the finish of the moisturizer you blend it with, expect a more matte finish with a mattifying moisturizer. Or a more dewy, radiant finish when blended with a moisturizer that contains optics. All skin types.Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.33.00 PM

Enjoy an at home spa treatment using this Eco Tools Dry Body Brush (with cruelty-free synthetic bristles) for beauty you can feel good about! Inspired by spa dry brushing treatments, used to exfoliate and detoxify, improving appearance and leaving skin soft, smooth and glowing.

What are yall wanting this month??
