Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid VoxBox from Influenster — Review.

Hi, everyone!

Today I am excited to share with you the new Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid. I love testing and reviewing a wide variety of products, but my favorite types of products to test are makeup — especially lipstick!

There are currently 10 Vivid Matte shades to choose from. The 2 shades I received in my VoxBox are “Nude Flush” and “Rebel Red.”

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in “Anarchy” — Review.

It’s a great morning 🙂 My daughter only woke up ONCE last night. I got almost 8 hours of sleep. Now I’m sitting here enjoying the little pitter patters of rain on the roof with a nice cup of coffee. Did I mention everyone is still asleep? Peace and quiet. Well . . . except for my pitbull sitting here eating dog food like a savage, lol.

Anyway. Last year on one of my many trips to Ulta, I was given some free samples of Urban Decay lipstick because I bought their Naked Skin foundation along with the powder. I tried each sample (I believe there was 5) and completely fell in-love with “anarchy.” Because of the price, I never went back to buy a full tube. My sample managed to last me a full year though 🙂 Amazingly. And for those of you that don’t personally know me, I’m not a big lipstick fan. I think I look absurd in most shades.

My birthday was last Sunday and one of the gifts I received was a gift card to Ulta. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to buy. (You can pick one up at Ulta for $22.)

Paris by Thirty-One.

Paris1

A few months ago I was introduced to Thirty-One. I’m not a consultant, but I have a friend who is one. She invited me to a few online parties and I started learning about their products. I immediately fell in-love.

I have an obsession. Purses. 5 years ago my husband bought me my first Coach purse, but only because I agreed to donate my entire purse collection. This was a very difficult thing for me because I loved each and every one very much. After 5 years with my beautiful Coach purse, I finally caved and bought myself a Thirty-One purse. That poor purse has been through a lot — I’ve had people spill beer on it on a few occasions, it’s been to the Bahamas and Curacao, etc.

I wasn’t sure what to think when I first made my Thirty-One purchase. It’s very different from making a normal purchase online. I’m very happy with my purchase/products, but there are some cons I think others who haven’t purchased from a Thirty-One consultant before should know.

Con #1 — You don’t receive a confirmation upon placing your order.
Con #2 — Your order/card isn’t processed until a party is closed out. You will see a 0.01 cent charge as a hold on your account until it’s fully processed.
Con #3 — Once the party closes, you don’t receive confirmation your order is processed. You’ll only know if you check your bank account on a daily basis.
Con #4 — Once your account is charged, you don’t receive shipping info. I had to ask my friend and she provided me with the information.

P.S. I’ve been working on a blog post, but I haven’t been able to get it up just yet. My daughter has an ear infection AGAIN. . . and I’m having to monitor her to make sure she doesn’t have the flu. All of the children and instructors in her class at day care have been passing it around to each other :/ This is also a busy week for me at school, but I’m hoping to have a new post up this weekend!

NYC Expert Last Lip Color Review — #FrostyVoxBox

If you’re looking for a new beauty product to try in 2015, I highly recommend the NEW NYC Expert Last Lip Color. I received a complimentary lip color in Sugar Plum from Influenster for testing purposes and I’m so in-love with it!

Most of the lip colors I’ve tried in the past have been very drying on my lips. I’ll use the lip color once or twice and then it’s left sitting in one of my many drawers of makeup. That was NOT the case with NYC Expert Last Lip Color. I received my VoxBox right before Christmas and I think that Sugar Plum was the perfect shade to send out for the holidays/winter. I can’t wait to try some of the other shades that are available.

Pictures don’t do this beautiful lip color justice. Sugar Plum reminds me of a mixture of brown, orange, and a slight hint of red all put into one lip color.
