Makeup Product Fails

For the most part the makeup that I have used is great and I love it but every once in a while I have a product that does not meet my expectations!  Today I wanted to share with you a few products that I still had in my makeup drawer that I never reach for because I simply did not like them.

Birchbox Unboxing: April 2017

I love receiving my Birchbox in the mail every month because I love not knowing what I’ll be getting and it feels like a gift each month!!

April Birchbox

April’s Birchbox theme is one I really like because it talks about the beauty that comes within.  From the outside the box is plain but the cursive “Magic Inside” makes it look very cute.  In the inside, the box has a bunch of designs on a light pink background.  I definitely think they nailed it this month on the box!!

 

So let’s get into what I got this month.  If you want to know, keep reading!! Continue reading

Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca | Stila

I’ll be completely honest, it took me a long time to get into the liquid lipstick scene!! I know, I know, it’s crazy, but the reason for that is because I didn’t really know which brand to try and I was a bit intimidate by the whole thing.  While I did try a liquid lipstick a few years ago, it wasn’t too popular and I didn’t wear it much since the shade was dark and  at that time I was still getting used to deeper shades.  Anyway, I finally tried a liquid lipstick in August or September since it came my Birchbox.

stila-bacca

I really loved the lipstick I had received, which was the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina by Stila.  I decided to do a little bit of browsing to see which color I would get next.  Two shades caught my attention: Ricco and Bacca.  I wanted to see how they each compared to each other so I googled swatches.  In my search, I stumbled upon a post which said that while they loved the shade for Bacca, they didn’t really like the application.

Because of that, I decided I would buy Ricco, but when I saw Bacca in person, I just had to have it.  I took a chance and decided to buy the lipstick even if I had heard negative comments on it.  I’ve had this lipstick now for about 2-3 months.  Keep reading to find out if it indeed sucked or if it exceeded my expectations!! Enjoy! Continue reading

Birchbox Unboxing: September 2016

As always, I get very excited to not only receive my monthly Birchbox, but also post about it!  I’m still trying to balance school, work, and blogging, which is why September went by and I completely forgot to post that month’s Birchbox.  So finally, here is what I got for the month of September!  Also, stay tuned for next Monday, I’ll be posting the Birchbox for October.  So let’s get right in! Enjoy!

September 2016 Birchbox

First off, I really like the design of the box, it reminds me of a delicious cupcake with sprinkles!!  For September, Birchbox celebrated getting stuff done and also those who love Birchbox because it was their 6th anniversary.  The box design is super appropriate for that celebration.

Yay or Nay: Birchbox

Sometimes I find myself wanting to review a lot of products but I also don’t want to make my blog an all review blog.  There are also some products that I don’t find good enough to have it’s own post.  Because of this I decided to start a series called “Yay or Nay.”  In this series I will review a bunch of products that I other wise would not have time to review.  I will keep the reviews short so since some of them will feature many products.

Yay or Nay: Birchbox

Todays Yay or Nay is all about Birchbox samples.  There are many times in my Unboxing posts that I say I will review a certain product but I never get to it so in this post you will see my thoughts over some of those Birchbox samples.  There are 10 of them today, so let’s go right in!
