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.

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!

Tone correcting is something has become more popular, so it is no surprise that there are more tone correctors out in the market.  I am a newbie to the tone correcting world but I really wanted to try it out and see if it actually works.  Because I wanted to experiment with it, I decided to buy the $3 Tone Correcting Powder by e.l.f.  Cosmetics.

Kerastase Curl Ideal Review

Having curly hair has its perks as well as its downfalls.  One of the downfalls is having frizzy hair where it doesn’t even form a beautiful curl that, deep down inside, you know you have.  Because of this, I was super excited to see that I had received the Kerastase Curl Ideal Cleansing Conditioner and Oleo-Curl Cream in my Spirit VoxBox.  I didn’t get to try out the product until a week ago.  I used it once but I think that is all I need for this review, which could also be a first impressions.

Like I mentioned above, I was super excited to test out these two products, I could already picture myself with beautiful curls.  I decided to try it out the night before going to work because, if this product worked, I wanted to sport my beautiful curls in public.   Continue reading

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer

Having moisturized skin is very important, it makes us look good and it is a sign that we are healthy.  While some people are in the habit of putting lotion on everyday, others, like me, not so much!  I always seems to forget to put on lotion, even in the summer, so I can have some pretty dry skin.  When I saw a funny commercial featuring Leslie Mann promoting the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer, I wanted to try out!! My sister and I decided to buy it and see how good this product really is.

It’s been over a month that we have bought this so I am excited to share my thoughts over this moisturizer, so if you are interested, keep on reading!

Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner

Eyeliner is one of the first kinds of makeup I ever used so I am really picky when it comes to it.  I really like eyeliners but there are few that I actually end up loving.  While I am picky, I really do like to try them out to see if I find that is better than the one I use currently.  So when I saw that I got the Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner in my January Birchbox, I was excited!

I have been using it for about a month now so I decided to share my thoughts on this liquid liner.  Keep reading to see whether or not it made it the small list of liners that I love. Enjoy!

Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner

I had actually never used a fat liquid liner in my life before because I honestly didn’t see the point to a fat liner, I just thought it would give me a big line and I’m not really into that.  I few weeks before I got the liner though, I saw someone use a fat liner and it kind of made me want to try it out.  I was really excited to try this eyeliner out but also scared since I was only used to my slanted eyeliner.
