Julep January 2013

 Hey Everyone!

  I am in LOVE with this months Julep box! First off you can never have enough nudes but look at those amazing neons!!

Here are some closer shots of the whole collection:

Alright let's start with the Hand and Cuticle cream. This really is a wonder product for me, it's helps soften the area around my nail and I had always had an issue with the little pieces of skin the pull up around the nail. Not anymore! 

I also love the stick format because it makes it so easy to apply and it doesn't get all over my fingers which can be more sensitive then the area right around my nails.


Our first color combo is Boho Glam and that came with Fiona and Teresa. The first thing I thought when I saw Fiona was Shrek! It's a stunning bright green.

Next we have American Beauty which has Bethany and Mindy. Bethany is bright orange creme color, it really pops and if you put it on-top of Mindy which is a very pale pink it really pops.

Bombshell has the most amazing Purple color called Bette and a beautiful everyday color called Ava. It's a perfect pink colour, just perfect!

When I looked at these two colors I knew that they were the Classic With A Twist combo. They both scream it, LOUD! The pink neon is called Madison and it's a bright pink creme and the nude is Grace a very ice light pink. The only thing I don't like is Grace is really sheer, maybe too sheer to wear on it's own.

It Girl is my usual style and it came with two neons and one nude and I really wasn't too impressed with this set! Nikki is the highlighter yellow shade and it's really not very pretty to be honest! I like Ameila but I find it has almost to much of a shine to it, but the saving grace of this set was Nina. It's a  orangesicle creme color that I have a feeling I will wear all summer! It reminds me a lot of Parker another color I LOVE!

December Glossy Box

Hey Everyone!

  So when I opened up the shipping box and saw this amazing sliver box I was wowed by colour. I love it! I also really like it when GlossyBox sends something other then the regular pink box.

So we got lots of goodies on the December box and a lot of them I'm really excited about! Here's a picture of everything we got. We got some hair products, some face product and some makeup products.

This first one in all honesty is my favourite. Most of you know I love sliver nail polish, in fact I love all metallic nail polish and I don't own even one Revlon nail polish. So I'm excited to try this formula and let you guys know what I think!

Next we got these really pretty simple stud earrings. I love that we got something a little different and extra but more then that something I'll use. Having a baby means no dangling earrings for me. These are a really pretty teal blue shade and I know I'll be putting them to good use.

Now onto hair products and you guys know how I feel about hair products over loading beauty boxes but this was a dry shampoo and that is something I will use! We also got a small sample of shampoo and conditioner but the dry shampoo is what I'm excited to try.

Eyelashes?!?!? Glossybox how did you know? I love a good pair of false eyelashes and after playing with these guys for a couple of days I can tell you these are really nice. The band on them is s good size for applying them but also very bendable so they are easy to aptly. 

The next two products are both from Aveeno and with my sensitive skin Aveeno is a brand I reach for often. I got the Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer and the Tinted Moisturizer in fair to light. I haven't used either of these yet so I get to try some new stuff which is awesome. They both came as full sized so that is great!

Sorry! I forgot to add this in there! This is a really pretty pink lip gloss from Avon. I love this colour and it's really wearable for everyday!

Maybelline Vivids Colorsensational Lipsticks

Hey Everyone!

 So when I was out at Shopper's Drug Mart I saw the display for these and had to pick some of them up!

These lip colours are so bright and full pigmented and on top of that they are moisturizing, they are made with honey nectar. I get about 3 to 4 hours of wear with these but they do wear off if I eat or drink. 


  This is a very bright hot pink colour! The shade would work on every skin tone cause it is just a straight pink it doesn't pull blue or orange. This is my favourite shade from the new line!


  This colour looks exactly like what it is called. It's a reddish hue but pulls kind of pink when swatched.  This is the perfect red colour if you want to try a red but are worried about how it will look on you. The pink in this will make it look good on almost all skin tones!


 This is your classic red shade, it's deep and a pure beautiful red shade. I use it as an everyday lip colour but for anyone who isn't as bold you can try taking your finger and just patting it onto the lips. This will give a much softer affect.


  This shade is a hot pink with a purple hue, it's bright and very in your face. It's a very close match for MAC's Candy YumYum but a little more purple.

And here's all 4 side by side!

November Glossy Box

Hey Everyone!

  So I got my November GlossyBox, which the made Christmas themed because we don't get it till December. I loved the paper on the inside, very christmasy, it was so cute! I love the normal classy paper that GlossyBox uses but it's nice to change it up once and a while.

As far as the products go we got a pretty good selection and all from different beauty categories which is nice. I like to try a mix of products and so I like when beauty boxes come with a good selection.

This first product we got is this Curel Hand Cream, which I was super excited for because we had gotten a foot cream a few months back from Curel that I loved. Sure enough I love the hand cream as much. It absorbs really quickly but it leaves my hands feeling very moisturized and my cuticles look amazing.  We got a full sized product which is always nice.

Next product was a shower gel by Vitabath which is Paraben and Sulfate FREE, LOVE that! THis product has a very strong scent and that's the only think I don't love about it. I also think the scent is more manly, it's not floral or sweet, it smells kind of like Swagger men's body wash!

We got a small sized sample of Clear Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner. I don't love these types of samples because my hair is just so picky but I think I'll pass these along to the B/F and he can try it out. And just to clarify these small samples will give you 2 to 3 uses if you have med hair length so not to bad at all.

This next product is one of my favourite out of the whole box. It's a Nicole by OPI Keeping Up With The Kardashian nail colour! My colour was Keeping Up With Santa and I LOVE it! You can never have too many red nail polishes and this one is beautiful. It's a true bright red with a red sheen finish, it's stunning to look at!

Then we got a full sized lip gloss by Maybelline NY, mine was a pretty light peach colour. I don;t like this style of gloss because I don't like applying my gloss from  a hard plastic end and I also found the gloss to be very scented and very sticky. So not a huge fan of it but do like the colour.

Lastly we got another Kryolon product made just for us Glossies! Last box we got a lipstick that was created just for us in the colour Glossy Pink and this time it was a blush. I love Kryolon products as they are a professional brand and make great quality products and then blush does not disappoint. It has great colour payoff but it's so smooth and easy to blend. I've been very it almost every day from the day I got it. Hit one out of the park with this one Glossy Box!

That's it for this box everyone. People have been asking me if I still think Glossy Box is worth it because they upped their prices. I have to say I really do! In Canada you can spend $13 on an average drug store product and in this box for $21 dollars we got a nail polish, blush and lip gloss and 2 other products as well you can;t beat that value!
