Soap & Glory being discontinued at sephora sale

I recently heard that sephora is discontinuing certain brands in store and online, and the brand soap & glory is one that they are discontinuing. I have been checking to the website to see if they will be discounted, and sure enough today, the entire line is on sale. I love this brand, I am so sad that they are no longer carrying it, not sure where I will be able to find it now. Soap & glory has the most amazing products, in my opinion, they work really well for my skin type, and texture. 

I have many favorite products, mostly skin care that I have used in the past, or am currently using by the brand. One of my all time favorite body butters is the righteous butter. I can’t even explain the amazing scent of this luxurious product. The smell is intoxicating, filled with sweet sugar crystals, combined with hints of vanilla, rose, and strawberry. It is so moisturizing, and makes my skin soft, and supple. It’s the perfect non greasy, highly scented, and long lasting formula. Literally one smell of this delicious body butter will have you wanting to use it every day! I highly recommend you at least giving it a try, it’s never been on sale at sephora before, so make sure you stock up on this, and all the other soap & glory products you’ve been wanting to try before they are gone forever.

NARS dual intensity blush in “ADORATION”

p393659-av-02-hero300Color: Adoration – sparkling baby pink/ shimmering hot pink.  s1678135-main-hero-300

What it is: A blush duo in one compact for endless cheek looks.

What it does: These dual-intensity, silky, wet or dry blushes are uniquely formulated with NARS’ exclusive Translucent Prismatic Technology, which allows for multidimensional effects. With a lightweight texture for a flawless finish and true color application, each duo features two ultra-modern shades that can be worn alone or layered together for limitless looks. Apply these shades wet to achieve a high-impact flush or dry to get a natural-looking glow.

Suggested Usage: -Apply dry for a silky transparent veil of color. -Apply wet with a dampened brush for a high-impact second-skin glow that instantly blends into skin. -Blend both shades together for a multidimensional glow.

This blush from nars is absolutely beautiful! I already knew that I would love it from the moment it was released! This blush is part of the dual intensity line from nars, which we all know how amazing it all is. Nars launched 6 shades, and although they all look stunning, this one in adoration really stood out to me. The colors in this duo remind me a lot of deep throat, and orgasm, which I already own from the regular collection. Nars blushes are some of my favorite, because they are highly pigmented, and they blend so easily. When you apply this blush, you have to use a little amount, and remember to blend, otherwise it could be a bit over powering, and intense. Yes, nars is a more high end brand, and a bit more expensive, but I really feel like it’s worth the splurge! I definitely recommend you try it out for yourself, and I am excited to start using it in more of my looks, as both of the colors are very wearable for everyday wear.

“Tester Tuesday” sample product review colab

image

I am so excited to colab every week with two great fellow bloggers! I noticed that I already follow both of their blogs, and wanted to join in on the fun of tester Tuesdays! They were willing to let me join, yeah. I am so excited about this fun colab. Every week all 3 of us bloggers on Tuesdays will be blogging about samples, or full size products that we are trying out that week. We will give a full review of that product, and support each other as well. I have so many samples, and was already collecting, and planning on doing a “sample empty” blog review, and video, so this was perfect! I am going to be focusing on samples mostly, with a couple full size products mixed in as well. I think I will just be picking 2 or 3 every week, so that I can keep it basic, and simple.

I will be posting every Tuesday at 4:30 pm, along with the other 2 ladies. I realize I am late this week, I am still trying to figure out how to post a scheduled blog post, as it was my first attempt today, and it failed unfortunately, luckily it was still saved in my drafts, and I am just updating it now! So let’s talk about my first tester Tuesday products for this week. I choose the acure sensitive facial cleanser, and the benefit it’s potent eye cream. I thought these were perfect for my first week, as I was already using, and loving them! I hope you will check out the other ladies blog posts as well, and check out what they are testing this week, and their reviews. Please see the links down below, if you have any requests for me to review, I would be more than happy to try to accommodate them as well in the future, for now though, I have tons of sample products to get through! Thank you for supporting us in this new colab series, tester Tuesday!

047-2T*Acure* sensitive facial cleanser-   

What it does: Don’t be so sensitive! Take a deep breath and relax with this soothing blend of Organic Argan Oil, Probiotics, and Pumpkin Seed Oil. Rich in omega fatty acids, this gentle creamy cleanser will have your face feeling fresh, clean, and hydrated. 

My thoughts: I absolutely love the brand acure. I have been using the brand pretty exclusively for the past 2 years, and it really works well with my skin. The scent is mild, and smells like argan oil. It has a creamy, delicate texture that doesn’t contain any amount of rough scrubbing beads, or anything. It is perfect for my oily, sensitive skin. I want to mention that I have combination skin, and have for the past 2 years, as I am on retin-a for my acne scars. This facial cleanser doesn’t irritate my skin at all, even using it twice a day. I love that it has natural ingredients, and is better for the planet. This is becoming one of my favorite face washes, and have already purchased the full size, as I love it that much! s1318344-main-hero-300*Benefit* It’s potent-

What it does: Your eyes can’t keep a secret—they’re the first to show signs of age and stress. It’s Potent! Eye Cream fades dark circles and helps smooth the appearance of fine lines for brighter, younger-looking eyes. It contains a peptide complex known to help restore elasticity and firmness, along with a blend of hydrating botanical extracts and loquat extract, known to help protect the skin from free radical damage.

My thoughts: Benefit has always been one of my favorite brands for makeup. Simply because, they have amazing products, and the cutest packaging ever! I never have thought to try their skincare line though, it is a bit pricey, and haven’t heard much about it to be honest. I have heard a little about the it’s potent eye cream though, so I really wanted to try it! I received this sample jar in one of my birchboxes, and it was the perfect amount to try because you only need a little per use. This eye cream has a light, creamy, moist texture, and was perfect for my dry skin around my eyes. It absorbed right away, and made my eyes feel brighter, as well as tighten the fine lines, and wrinkles. I love this eye cream, and most likely will be buying the full size as well. Eye cream lasts me months so it’s worth the money to me to find a great one that works, even if it is expensive.

Popsugar must have “RESORT” special edition box

image 2

This special edition box is from popsugar must have was available for sale earlier this month, as they release these at random times throughout the year. Last year’s resort box was amazing, and I actually won that box from a fellow youtuber, which was awesome. I loved last year’s box, so I definitely knew I wanted to take the chance on this one. The box just came in the mail yesterday, so I wanted to get this up as soon as possible. The box is currently sold out, unfortunately, I’m sorry about that. This box retails at $100, and they gave one spoiler this time, which was the makeup kit from Jane Iredale, I like the brand, so I knew I would at least get use out of it. The value of the Jane Iredale kit is $58, so that was a high value makeup product that was going to be in the box, which was exciting. When these boxes are released they sell out very quickly, so you have to be fast in deciding to purchase it or not. I will admit that I peeked at the full spoilers a couple days before I got my box in the mail, I never seem to be able to wait! I have to admit that I am not thrilled with this box, and what it contains. I feel that it isn’t up to par as far as other special edition boxes from popsugar must have in the past. The box contains very high value products, which for some is a great thing, but for me it isn’t. I would much rather have more lower value products, and have more of them in the box. Maybe I am over thinking, but I think it just doesn’t make sense to have a $80 facial serum from an unknown brand included in a special edition subscription box, that is supposed to be the best of the best, and that costs $100. I am disappointed in the product selection that was chosen as well, they don’t seem to be of the quality, and brands that I would expect. My favorite thing in the box is the train case from Stephanie Johnson. The case is adorable, and I love how it is lined with a pop of hot pink to add a girly touch to it. I already have a couple of items from the brand, and I love them. They are all very well made, and beautiful. I also love the Jacobsen cocktail salt, although I won’t be using it most likely, it is a local to me company. I have used other products from the brand, and love them, especially because they are local! If you are interested in purchasing any of these items from me feel free to ask, as most of this I’m not really interested in, so just let me know. I wanted to give my honest opinion on this box, so I’m sorry if it’s a bit negative. The value is higher than the $100 paid clearly, but I just feel the value doesn’t really matter if it’s something not practical that you will be able to get use out of, etc. I had a hard time righting this review, I would appreciate any opinions or feedback you may have :) I absolutely love popsugar must have, just a bit disappointed in this box.

Becca products always impress me, along with everyone else, they are exceptional quality, and lasts a long time, because you only have to you a little to achieve your makeup look. I apologize in advance if this set is no longer available, like I said it was limited edition, and they truly were the best of becca, and the perfect trial sizes, at a great price.

Ipsy glam bag March 2015 review

image 2

Per usual, my ipsy glam bag came very late again this month. I am not sure why I seem to be the last person to get my bag every month! I just got it today, so I wanted to review it asap, and get this post up. This is a great bag this month, and am loving the selection I got. My ipsy glam bags have been kind of sub par for the past couple months. I tried switching up my preferences in my profile this month, and it looks like it may have helped a bit. My favorite thing, that I am excited to use this month is the boo boo cover up concealer. I have heard great things, and reviews about this concealer and how great it works, this little tube will last a while, so I am happy I have the opportunity to try it out finally!  Let’s take a look at all of the products, I got this month in my ipsy glam bag. Please leave a comment below and tell me what you got in your bag that was different! I always wonder what other’s got!

*Dr. Brandt (anti-aging mattifying lotion)

*NYX cosmetics (butter lipstick)

*Pur_lisse (4 in 1 facial wash soymilk cleanser and makeup remover)

*Boo boo cover up (concealer)

Birchbox Unboxing & Review February (late) & March 2015

Hi lovies, so I realized that I never posted my blog unboxing for my birchbox last month! I kinda did everything else, except blog about it, I will include the video for February below, then I will link the new video after it’s up on my channel. I tell ya, the blogging ideas never end, which is awesome! I am starting to be consistent in my posts, yeah! :) Okay so let’s check out Februray’s birchbox first. I am really loving all the theme boxes lately, they always offer a great variety of products, and options. I have been so impressed with the overall value of the themed boxes as well. I seem to pick them as my sample choice every month! I loved February’s rent the runway box, I knew that I would though, because it contained a lot of my favorite brands in it. The products that I enjoyed the most sampling this month were the fake dry shampoo, and the not soap, radio body wash. The dry shampoo really stuck to my dirty hair, and even though I used very little, it made my hair feel very clean, and smell great. The body wash was the perfect addition to a valentine’s day month box, the name is simply adorable, and it smells fantastic, I will be buying the full size soon of this, I loved it that much!

February (birchbox vs. ipsy) video:

The RENT THE RUNWAY box:

Not soap, radio: Body wash (the stuff that cupid dips his arrows in) $16 full size>>>>

Derma-e: Anti wrinkle vitamin A glycolic scrub $12.95 full size>>>>

Sumita: Color contrast eyeliner $11-21 full size>>>>

Fekkai: Blowout refresher dry shampoo full size $10-20>>>>

The balm: Read my lips full size $15>>>>

I only took one picture of the my February’s birchbox for some reason, sorry about that.

Let’s talk about the March birchbox now. Yet again, I decided to pick the themed box this month, they really grab me I tell ya, but it does take the fun away from not knowing what is in the box. I saw the preview, and had to have it once again, because it contained a laura geller beauty blush, and I love this brand, and have a lot of their blushes, but didn’t have the color they were including. It was a no brainer to pick this themed box called, beauty quandaries, solved box this month! Some of my favorite products that were included in this themed box was first, obviously the laura gellar beauty blush. It is a mini size, which will last quite a long time, because as with any blush, you only need to use a very small amount. Laura gellar beauty always offers highly pigmented, beautiful colors for all of their products, and their blush is one of the best blushes I have ever used. The color I received was lovely. Another favorite product was the whish body butter, the scent is almond, one of my all time favorite scents! It really moisturizers very well, and the smell is so delicate and light. I am thinking about purchasing the full size of this as well because the scent, and formula is so perfect.

The BEAUTY QUANDARIES, SOLVED box:

Dear clark: Volumizing hair tonic full size $26>>>>

Laura Gellar Beauty: Baked blush -n- brighten full size $27.50>>>>

Derma-e: Evenly radiant brightening day creme SPF15 full size $27.95>>>>

Supergoop: Advanced SPF37 anti-aging eye creme full size $45>>>>

Whish: Three wishes body butter full size $24>>>>
