What’s new at Sephora: 5/22/2015

14PicMonkey Collage

Yeah, it’s my favorite day, it’s new at sephora day! I love doing these posts. I am so glad all of you like them as well. This week’s post is a bit different because I actually purchased 2 of the products! Yeah. let me tell you when I post these every week, I am so tempted every week. This week, I had to get these 2 sets, they are such a high value, and I always feel the need to get them, something about getting to try several different products, and brands so fun. It’s a great opportunity to sample higher end brands that’s for sure. I love how they also include some full size products as well. They both will sell out VERY fast, so make sure you grab then, or call ahead your store to see if they are in stock. I tell ya doing the picmonkey was tough this week, I couldn’t get it perfect, ugh, oh well! Thanks for all the support, and love on these posts, I truly appreciate it. Are you picking up either of these sephora favorite kits, or any of the products I mentioned this week? Let me know! Have a great memorial day weekend, much love, and relaxation!

Tester Tuesday: Jouer & Montagne Jennesse

Hey there lovies! It’s time for tester Tuesday once again! I am doing this on my phone, long story but, I don’t have my computer :( so ya until tonight when I can edit this post this will have to do! I am excited to announce that we have a new tester to the group!!!! Her name is Rachel and she had an amazing blog, you should definitely head on over there! I love my picks this week, thought it would be really fun to do a mask, took me ALOT to take this picture, I think it looks pretty damn creepy, but hey all for you guys, ha ha! I am using both products in the picture though, I know I look super lovely in my pink Victoria’s Secret fuzzy robe!!! Enjoy the post this week, I’ll finish and edit more when I get to my computer in a few hours 😄 thx for reading and definitely check out my awesome fellow bloggers posts this week! 

Jouer: Lip enchancer lip conditioning treatment    

My review:

I love this!!! So incredibly conditioning! It’s a great consistently, and glides on easily. I feel like it hydrates very well, and lasts for hours on my lips. It has a nice rose scent, that is light and delicate. This brand I have always loved due to its natural ingredients, and it’s more of an eco friendly brand. This makes my lips very soft, and hydrated. 

Would I purchase?: Yes, most definitely, I’m not sure how much the full size is, but I really do love it, and a little goes a long way! It’s so moisturizing, and I love the way it makes my lips feel!

Montagne Jennesse: Red earth clay spa mask    

Me wearing the creepy ass mask! Ha, hope you enjoy! Wait….. let me take a selfie! 

My review:

Omg this picture scares me lol!!! Okay so I do like the mask, I really surprised myself! I bought this at ulta on a whim thinking it looked cool, and wanted to try it. I think it’s a bit messy, the product gets everywhere. It was very easy to apply, and it stayed on my face very well, without sliding off at all. The smell was sweet, like fruit, I liked it. My skin felt AMAZING afterwards. I left it on for 15 minutes per directions, but forgot to massage it, lol of course I did! It still worked great, made my skin feel so fresh and clean. Loved it, even if I scared the crap out of my cats talking to them!!!! 

Would I purchase?:

Yes, I definitely would! This is a great mask! I really enjoyed using it! The price was great as well, I think it was under $3! Definitely don’t be afraid to try it. Hope you all got a good laugh by my picture! 😂

>>>>Update:>>>> WOW they sold out super fast, I am glad I posted this when I did so all of you could hopefully grab some great deals! I will post a haul when I get my orders!

Okay, so as always I randomly check out the sale section at sephora, and low and behold, I found GREAT sale items! I definitely wanted to get this post up because I know a lot of you lovies are makeup collectors, and some of the sale items are extremely hard to find! Sephora some how must have gotten extra stock or something, so not sure how many they have, or how fast they will all sell out. I am sure there are very few, since some of the sale items from tarte are a few years old, but remember, eyeshadows stay good for many years! I was so excited to see some of these, I placed a pretty big order, because a lot of these I have been wanting, and have only been able to see them on eBay for ridiculous prices! I personally LOVE tarte cosmetics, as it’s one of my favorite brands, and continues to be. There are also some great sales from philosophy, and OCC cosmetics. There is a OCC lip tar mini set for $8 for 4 mini tubes, such a great deal to try out these great lip tars! So make sure you go check out everything that is on sale at sephora right now, as they will go very fast I am sure! Good luck grabbing some, I am excited to get mine, maybe I will share my HAUL :)

I also wanted to mention with a $25 order use code, “JETSET” and you can pick out 3 great mini deluxe size samples, so many to choose from. I chose fresh sugar scrub, smashbox BB cream, and origins mask, great samples, I am such a sucker for these! I have flash shipping so it’s free with any order, if you are wondering or curious about flash shipping, it is SO worth it at $10 for a year, it pays for itself in 2 orders, there is NO minimum to order, which is awesome, great deal!

Birchbox May 2015 Review (cupcakes & cashmere)

FullSizeRender 2

Hello lovies! I have for you today my birchbox, it’s the cupcakes and cashmere box! I decided to just choose the sample choice this month instead of the themed box, and wing it. I really like knowing exactly what I will be getting every month, so this wasn’t my most favorite box unfortunately. I was most excited about the sample choice I picked this month. I picked the macadamia professional oil treatment, as I LOVE this hair oil, and the way it works, it’s also a bit pricey, so I know a little will last a long time with this hair oil. Birchbox has a choice where you can choose to only get 4 perfume samples every year, so this is one of those I am guessing. I don’t know about everyone else but I really DO NOT like perfume samples. I have so many, and never end up using them, as I have a huge perfume collection already that I like to try and use. So anyways, lets check out what was in my birchbox this month. Let me know what you received, and choose for your sample choice, or if you choose the themed box, because this is the first month in a while that I didn’t! Thanks for checking out this post! I took pictures outside in the beautiful sunshine, natural lighting is always tough I tell ya! Enjoy!

What I received in my May birchbox:

Coastal Scents: Revealed 3 eyeshadow quad>>>>

Harvey Prince: Yogini>>>>

Macadamia Professional: Nourishing moisture oil treatment>>>>

Marcelle: Hydra-c 24 hour energizing hydrating gel>>>>

Smashbox Cosmetics: Photo finish primer water>>>>

I am most happy with only 2 things this month, the rest are definitely not my favorite. I do not like coastal scents, they are low quality to me, and the pigmentation is just not there for me. The shadows do not stay on my lids, no matter how much I try, they just don’t last. I always seem to get these little quad samples, and to be honest I never use them. Bummer! I love that they did include a sample of the smashbox primer water. I have been wanting to try it for a long time, but the bottle is so little that I will only get a few uses out of it, not sure it will be enough to truly test out, and see how well it works. I am happy that I got 2 great samples, hopefully next month will be better for me, or I will pick the themed box again so I know what is in my box. What do you think of my box? I know a lot of people love perfume samples, I wish I did, maybe someone has a good idea of how to store all the little bottles, that drives me nuts!!

If you are interested in joining birchbox, please check out my other previous boxes, or videos to see what to expect, etc. Birchbox has always been one of my favorite subscription boxes, and at $10 a month it’s a great way to try out new products, and they are always more high end then ipsy!

Tarte: Brazilliance skin rejuvenating maracuja body self tanner>>>> $54 comes with tanning mitt


What it is:
A supersize version of tarte’s revolutionary Brazilliance™ skin rejuvenating self-tanner.

What it does:
This perfectly-hued bronzer gives skin a sunkissed warmth that never looks fake or orange, and thanks to the included perfect application mitt, you’re guaranteed an easy, clean, and streak-free tan every time.

My Review:

I just had a small tube of this, so my opinion will be based on the product effectiveness, not how long it lasted, or how much product has to be used. I have heard so many great things about this self tanner, I live in Oregon, so I don’t get sun most of the year, lol. This is perfect for those days when you want to feel tan, I used this on my legs only because I am so pale right now I didn’t want to experiment with other areas, also I didn’t want to run out mid way through application. I do want to mention that I applied this with gloves to protect my hands. I applied it in circular motions over my entire legs, it rubbed in perfectly, and dried quickly. I think this is a great product, I don’t mind the scent as I use maracuja oil on my face every day, so it doesn’t bother me. I wish I had taken before, and after pictures, duh! But it gave my legs a settle tan, and bronzing affect, which was just what I was looking for!

Would I purchase?:

I would definitely purchase this, but for the price, I think other drugstore brands, and products are just as good, so ya, there isn’t a ton of product in the tube regardless if you are doing your entire body it would get used up quickly that’s for sure. I do like it, and love the way it gives my skin a golden, beautiful glow, and can be used year round.


Davines: Replumping shampoo & conditioner>>>> $25.50 each

1121_default_l 1122_default_l

What it is:

The selected active ingredients give elasticity, moisturize and protect hair during cleansing. The creamy texture produces thick, rich foam. It cleanses gently without altering hair structure. This is a Naturaltech product.

Formulated to untangle, compact and give hair better elasticity. The selected active ingredients give moisturize and protect hair. This is a Naturaltech product.

My Review:

Wow, I received this sample pack in my birchbox a while ago, and never used it. I think the packaging is so cute, I didn’t realize that it was such a luxury brand! The brand devines is very expensive, luxury hair care brand. I wasn’t familiar with any of their products. I was excited to use these yesterday in the shower. Let me tell you, a little goes a VERY long way with both the shampoo and conditioner. I have long, middle of my back, very thick, and oily hair. I always have to use a lot of product, especially conditioner, but with this a dime size was enough. It is expensive, but I feel that it would be worth it, it made my hair smell like flowers, and feel very soft. It also detangled perfectly as well, and was easy to brush wet. The claims that it is supposed to provide elasticity I am unsure about because I didn’t see that result. I think it’s a great shampoo, and conditioner though!

Would I purchase?:

I think I would purchase both as a set. I really think it smells amazing, and the scent lasts all day in my hair. I enjoy it a lot that’s for sure.

OH my goodness! I am posting this because I know a ton of you do subscription boxes, as do I, and LOVE sample sized anything, so I am letting you all know, so you can get them as well. I just heard about this amazing sale, so I wanted to let everyone know as soon as possible. Ulta always has amazing sales, but they are a bit tricky to find, so I did all the work for you! I was able to get all 5 of them for $10 each yeah, but they are going really fast because they just got marked down 50%, making them only $10 each. These are amazing deals, we all know how expensive samples are, and the value. It’s perfect because you get to try out so many great products at once. I would recommend getting one of each, at this price it’s totally worth it! I also am including a urban decay eyeliner pencil set which is also a great deal at 50%! I got one of these as well, urban decay eyeliners are one of the best ones I have ever used. This little set is the perfect way to try out different colors as well to find a new favorite. Be fast, and grab them before they are gone. I had to search through 16 pages of sale items to find them, but so well worth it! As always with ulta, if you purchase over $50 worth of items you will qualify for free shipping! I will include all the links so you can purchase them easily, and quickly. Yeah, so glad I heard about this great deal! 

Tester Tuesday is also posting later today as usual so please come back to check that out! Thank you!
