Glamour Doll Eyes Haul/Review

So I placed an order with Glamour Doll Eyes because I LOVE their mineral eye shadows. She also had a sale every Monday for a "March Madness" sale she was doing, so I took advantage of 2 of them. I think there will be one more next monday, so follow her on FB and she posts what it is and what the code is.

So I got one of my orders today, and here are the colors I got, my camera/lighting doesn't do the colors justice, but you can get a basic feel for them. I'll tell you what I think of them at the end of this post. Here are the pics:

Colors from left to right: Trophy Wife, Ahoy Sailor, Dirty Jeans, Girlfriend Sweater, Jayne, Picture Whore, Backstabber, Cloud Coverage.(Top is on primer, bottom is dry) This one was done with REALLY bad lighting :p but just shows you a diff. view!

From Bottom to Top: Trophy Wife, Ahoy Sailor, and Dirty Jeans(left is w/ primer, right is dry)

From Left to Right: Trophy Wife, Ahoy Sailor, Dirty Jeans, Girlfriend Sweater, Jayne, Picture Whore, Backstabber, Cloud Coverage. (Top is w/ primer, bottom dry)

Trophy Wife, and Ahoy Sailor(left is w/ primer, right is dry)

Bottom to Top: Dirty Jeans, Girlfriend Sweater, and Jayne(left is w/ primer, right is dry)

Bottom to Top: Jayne, Picture Whore, Backstabber, and Cloud Coverage(left is w/ primer, right is dry)

I had REALLY high expectations for the matté colors(Ahoy Sailor and Girlfriend Sweater) but unfortunately they were SO hard to work with!!!!! Makes me so sad. They really are beautiful colors, amazing, but for some reason they don't go on my skin well. I'm gonna try an actual look out with them and see how it works. I'll post it here!

As for the other colors, <3 <3 <3, I am IN LOVE with Trophy Wife(which I knew I would be), Dirty Jeans and Picture Whore. The colors are so incredible and such high pigmentation without using up too much color.

So in summary, LOVE all of the colors, but the matté ones just aren't hitting the spot for me(in SWATCHES, maybe in a look I'll change my mind).

Full Sized Jars are $6.00
Sample Sized Jars are $2.50
Sample Baggies are $1.25

There are also other things on her site like Eye Lights(I have some of those coming next week, so I'll review those too. Also, lip gloss and other things.

Look I Did With BFTE! (Picture heavy!)

So this is a look I did using Beauty from the Earth colors(BFTE). The site actually was just redesigned, and they are having a 25% off sale, but it ends today! Sorry I posted this so late. They have sales/deals/giveaways ALL the time though on her Facebook.

In this look I used Urban Decay Primer Potion in "Eden" and MAC PaintPot in "Nubile" as a primer. Then I used "Blue Me Over"on the lid. "Erase the Stigma" in the inner corner(and a little in the crease) and "Seduction" in the outer 1/3 of my eye and a bit in the crease. I also used "Diamonds" as a highlight on my brow bone and dragged it down a little to the inner corner also. Then I used mark. cosmetics Get In Line in "painted black" as a liquid liner, and Maybelline Line Express in "Ebony Black" in the waterline. For mascara I used Tarte's Light, Camera, Lashes! in black.

I'll have another look I did with BFTE coming up within the week. Sorry I don't have any video tutorials. I PROMISE they will come when I get time and a better camera. It just isn't working out for me yet.

Any questions? Requests? Let me know. I love talking to you guys.

My Birchbox/MyGlam March 2012 boxes

SO sorry this is so late. I got 3 boxes(2 Birchbox and 1 MyGlam) and I've been SO busy. I also got my Influenster so it has been a crazy month for me. It makes me so sad, I wish I could film more ACTUAL makeup videos for you guys.

Good news though: We are only 7 subscribers away from getting to 50(which is my giveaway) help me get there!! Spread the word, check out this post to see what you will win if you win the giveaway!

Ok so here goes, this is what I go in my 3 boxes:

Teen Vogue Birchbox!!!! :

Regular Birchbox:


So I LOOOOOOVE my TeenVogue Birchbox, it is amazing. The Essie and Tarte were both full size and AMAZING, and the other products were ok, but those 2 make it great.

My regular Birchbox was MUCH less exciting. I didn't get the box I wanted, and no one wanted to trade with me(rightfully so, it wasn't a great box /:) so I was a bit dissapointed, but I still love BB so whatever. I will definitely use everythin except the Juice Beauty(I already owned this and didn't love it, prob. will give it in a giveaway at some point after my 50 sub. giveaway), I also won't use the perfume I don't think.

My MyGlam is almost always disappointing :p I learned to expect this. I can't bring myself to cancel, but I haven't loved ANY of my bags. I've been using the Pur-Lisse lip treatment, I kinda like it but it feels SO oily.I think it's working though, but I'm not sure. I also luckily got a full size, I heard some people didn't get a full size even though they were suppose to. They also pulled that crap with the "gift-card" again. it ISNT a gift card b/c you HAVE to spend money to get it, but whatever. I actually will use this coupon.

Truvía® Natural Sweetener Product Review

The last thing I'm going to review from the box is the Truvía® Natural Sweetener. I also got this in my Influenster Love VoxBox. I was excited to try this because I used to be a Splenda gal. I loved the stuff. It made my tea/coffee sweet WITHOUT the calories, but it did have a noticeable taste to it.

After I tried Truvia, I think I'm not a Truvia gal. It LOOKS more like real sugar, it TASTES more like real sugar, AND it's made from a natural plant, so it isn't so much a sugar "substitute" as it is just a natural sweetener that happens to be ZERO calories. I love it and I will probably be using this from now on instead of sugar or Splenda.

P.S. I received this item for FREE from Influenster for reviewing. I didn't use any of my own money for this product, however, my review is of my own opinion and I speak the truth with what I say.

Kiss Nail Dress

So I was chosen to receive a Love VoxBox from Influnester, you can find out what I'm talking about here.

I reviewed one of the products right before this one, but now on to: Kiss Nail Dress.

They are basically sticker nail polish. The 3 main features are:
-No dry time
-fits all nails
-lasts up to 10 days

When I first saw these I wasn't that excited to try them on. I just never thought I'd be a fan of sticker nail polish. However, after using them I changed my mind.

1st of all I love the no dry time aspect. I hate worrying about ruining my nails right after I spent forever doing them. Not only are Kiss Nail Dress stickers easy to use and put on, but there really is NO dry time b/c they are stickers.

2nd, I don't agree that it fits all nails. I have VERY small hands/fingers and the stickers did not fit some of my nails correctly, no matter which size I tried or how well I tried to get it to fit. So I think that that's something that could be improved. Also, I used it on my toes as well and that was a disaster. I like them a lot on my hands, I'll never use them on my toes again though.

3rd, they really do last up to 10 days. I've had mine on since I first got the box and besides for the damage I'VE done, like biting my nails(which is horrible!) the stickers have held up beautifully.

Overall, I'm really impressed. I will most likely repurchase these at some point in the future.

Fun Fact: You don't have to use the full nail sticker, you can just cut pieces of the pattern out and put it on top of your actual nail polish for a cool effect/pattern.

P.S. I received this item for FREE from Influenster for reviewing. I didn't use any of my own money for this product, however, my review is of my own opinion and I speak the truth with what I say.

Gillette Venus & Olay

So I was chosen to receive a Love VoxBox from Influnester, you can find out what I'm talking about here.

The 1st thing I'll review is the Gillette Venus & Olay razor:
So the 1st thing I noticed about it is that it didn't come with only 1 razor blade refill. Sometimes companies will have a razor already attached and then give you a refill, but they only gave you one razor for this. That isn't an end all be all though.

Next, I really like the grip, it really allows me to be sure I have a good grip on the razor. I also LOVED the smell. I wanna say it smells like honey, and its so refreshing to me. I also liked the shower hook, it was simple but does the job well. After using it to shave 2x so far, I did notice how smooth it made my skin.

That being said, I do think that the "moisture bars" run our SO quickly. After 2 uses I can tell that probably with 2 more uses I will already have to refill the head! That seems crazy to me because the refills aren't cheap, but maybe I'm just somehow using it wrong? Anyway, that's about the only REAL issue I found with it so far.

The razor features:
-Olay moisture bar to keep your skin smooth and full or moisture
-5 razor blades to get a close shave
-Interchangeable razor blade refill cartridge
-Shower hook
- and an excellent grip to have full control

Overall, I will probably repurchase refills, especially b/c I won't have to buy shaving cream and that takes that expense away PLUS more room in the shower. If the refills need to be refilled TOO frequently maybe I'll return to a regular razor.

P.S. I received this item for FREE from Influenster. I didn't use any of my own money for this product, however, my review is of my own opinion and I speak the truth with what I say.

Red Carpet Look

Hey!! So here is my Red Carpet Look. I filmed this video for the Destination Beauty contest that was going on for the "Next Youtube Beauty Guru." I am most definitely not going to win, some of the other girls' videos were AMAZING. I just love doing makeup so filming for anything works for me!

I know it's pretty rushed, that's because the video had to be in 4 min. or less! Isn't that absurd. It took me about 15 min. to actually film the look. I probably could have done it quicker, but I didn't :p
