Glossybox - March

The theme this month is Spring Fling. 

Box Contents
Elite Models - Matt Liner in Matt Brown Full Size $15
Model Co - Cheek & Lip Tint in Rosy Red Full Size $24
Pixi - Lid Last Shadow Pen in Charcoal Grey Full Size $18
Prestiche - Essential Oil Bar Soap Full Size $16.99
Sebastian - Shaper Fierce Hair Spray Deluxe Sample $2.41 (full size $17)
$40 Gift Certificate to Prestiche

I love the cheek & lip tint. It reminds me of Benefit's benetint but this is more pigmented. 
I know using a blush from a squeeze bottle seems kinda scary. I put a small amount on my finger and dab 3 dots along my cheek bone and blend upwards.

The soap from Prestiche smells divine. As divine as it smells, I would never pay $16.99 for a bar of soap. The gift certificate seems generous but shipping runs around $12. And, you can't use the gift certificate to pay for shipping. 

The eyeliner from Elite Models is pretty cool. It dries to a matte finish. I only wish I got a different color. I don't wear brown eyeliner, I love bold colors. I just don't know what to do with a neutral. And I have about 50 eyeliners (or more) in my stash that I already don't use so I'm passing this onto my trade list. 

I would have been stoked to get Pixi's Lid Shadow Pen if I didn't already have a million chubby eyeshadow pencils already. I don't even want to guess how many I have (hanging my head down in shame). I don't have a grey one though but honestly, I will never use it....another one for the trade list. 

And finally, a hair spray from Sebastian. Trade List :)

This particular box is valued at $76.40

For $21 a month, you can get a box similar to this one. There is a different theme every month.

Star Looks - March

I will be honest - upon arrival,  I was a little bummed by this box.
I was hoping for more spring like colors.
But after playing around w/ the products, I am digging it.

Box Contents
Flutter Lipstick retails $11
Disarray Eyeshadow retails $12
Black Lengthening Mascara retails $15
Vanilla Sugar Scrub $2

 The lipstick - flutter is a frosty copper color. I love the color but it looks awful on me :(
The navy blue eyeshadow - disrray is gorgeous. It almost looks matte but it has a slight hint
of shimmer. It goes on pretty light which was suprising but you can build it up.The lip
sugar scrub smells delish. I have super dry lips so this will be used frequently. I haven't
tried the mascara yet as I am drowning in them. It's a weighty, non
clumping and looks pretty awesome. It has a huge applicator & is supposed to
lengthen lashes by 50% with 2-3 coats.
My swatches look awful so I'm not going to post pics.
 Star Looks is the only all makeup sub that I know of. For $15 (plus $1.98 shipping), you receive 3-4 full size products. Sign up here
 I will be so grateful if you mention Souly Stones as the blog who referred you.

Nails Inc - Feather Effect Nail Polish

I am loving Nail Inc's new line called Feather Effects. I picked up a gorgeous teal and yellow polish named Brighton.

I wouldn't say this looks like feathers. It looks fuzzy to me. It reminds me of a fuzzy little chick - very Easter like. I love it. It's unique & different. They have 3 other colors - Cornwall is blue & white, Edinburgh is orange & blue and York is peach and white.

Available @ Sephora $9.50

Kroger Simple Truth Bzz Campaign

Simple truth is a new line of natural & organic good exclusively at Kroger. It's designed to help you make better food choices.

They sent a bottle of Cucumber Melon sparkling water. I didn't care for it. It smells & tastes just like cucumber. I just couldn't get over the taste or smell. I would love to try another flavor.

They also sent a smores protein bar. It was good but I wish I would have gotten a different flavor. The peanut butter extreme protein bar sounds delicious.

We used our coupons on sweet potato chips & organic frozen strawberries.

I LOVE the sweet potato chips. I usually eat The Trader Joe's brand but these are much better. They are thick & lightly salted. I love that their is 7 grams of monounsaturated fat. Even my son likes them.

The strawberries are excellent. We made strawberry shakes out of it - delish!

Overall, a great campaign. I like trying better for you food.

Bzz Agent is a social marketing community. You qualify for BzzCampaigns and in return, you get free products or services. You then Bzz (share/talk) your opinions on the product. Its a awesome way to try new things!

DISCLAIMER - I received this free to review. My opinions are 100% my own.

Illamasqua Haul

This was supposed to be my Valentine's present! It got held up in customs and I finally got it yesterday.  I LOVE Illamasqua. They had a killer 75% off sale & I couldn't resist.

Nail Varnish in Baptiste & Poke

Baptiste is a shimmery deep eggplant purple.
Poke is a shimmery bright purple.

Intense Lipgloss in Stranger
Liquid Metal Pigment in Stoic

Stranger is a platinum gold color.
Stoic is a metallic emerald color. 

Powder Blusher in Morale

Powder Blusher in Panic

Morale is a shimmery magenta pink
Panic is a very pigmented cherry red

I am super happy w/ this order. My favorite is the cherry red powder blusher. It looks scary as it is so pigmented but it's super flattering. You just need a spec of powder & blend. It creates a gorgeous natural flush. Stoic is just gorgeous - I plan on using it as a eyeshadow base. I'm not feeling the stranger lipgloss. I thought it was sheer - it's not! It's very pigmented but looks weird on me. Morale is another gorgeous blush. It's super pigmented and shimmery. I really want the excite, thrust & tweak blushes.

Wantable - Late February

This is technically my 3rd Wantable box but they have made some changes. Now, they are a monthly sub. You "personalize" your box by taking a quiz - marking things like lipstick or blush as a like love or dislike. You won't receive any of the items you dislike. It's $36 a month for the monthly sub or you can purchase one box for $40. You get 5 full size items. I recommend going month to month - you can cancel or skip at any time. They also have a monthly jewelry box - same price. You can sign up here 

I disliked brows, eyeliner, lashes, bronzer & eyeshadow.
I liked and loved blush, highlighter, lip, nail polish & brushes.

Box Contents
Swagger Cosmetics - Loose Blush in Nymphette Retails $14.50
Paula Dorf - Lip Liner in Rendezvous Retails $20.00
Eco Tools - Bamboo Finishing Kabuki Brush Retails $6.99
Color Club - Wild Cactus Retails $8
Color Club - Rad Nomad Retails $8
29 Cosmetics - Crush Cheek Blusher in Berries Reatils $36

Wild Cactus is a gorgeous emerald creme. Rad Nomad is a smoky purple.

I wish this was a little darker. You can't even see it on my cheeks.
I may try to use as a highlighter.

Nymphette, Rendezous & Berries

I had some issues w/ this box. It was missing two items & the blush was broken. Wantable sent me replacements right away & threw in another polish for the hassle. They have the best customer service. 

Overall, I am digging this box.

Beauty Army - February

Sad panda. The shower gel & boo boo covers bit it.

The survivors.
Grand Central Beauty - Skin Perfecting Mask
Skin Cosmetics - Eye, Cheek & Lip Glow in Teen Tone - Full Size
Mark - Blow Kisses Lip Gloss
Whip Hand Cosmetics - Medal of Honor Pigment

Mark - Blow Kisses, Skinn - Eye,Cheek, Lip Glow, Whip - Medal of Honor

I really like the lip gloss. It goes on more sheer than it looks & has a pinkish hue to it. The eye, cheek, lip glow is too light for me. It doesn't even show up on my cheeks at all :(  Medal of honor is pretty but it has so much glitter - it gets everywhere. I think I'm going to press it.

You can get a similar box like this for $12. It's a great deal. The Skinn product is full size & retails for $17 plus you get 5 other items. I like Beauty Army because it lets you pick your samples. You get to choose 6 from the 12 items offered. Sign up here

Little Black Bag - February

My best lbb haul to date!

Pink Cosmo Studded Satchel in Silver 
I really wanted this in black but there were only two & they weren't giving it up for anything! I wouldn't have either. So, I settled for this silver one. I wasn't sure if I would like it but it's growing on me.

I love the pocket - it's so cute!
