Luckybox 1

Now let me just tell you that these boxes go quickly so if you want it and see it on the site I would suggest ordering it. Now Luckybox 1 was sold out but was brought back and is still available on the site so if you’re interested in this box I would suggest going by their site as soon as possible. Oh and Luckybox 2 just became available so there is two luckyboxes to choose from right now.

IMG_1204

Luckybox 1

This is our first look at Luckybox 1! If I did it correctly you should be able to just click on the picture and have it redirect you to the site. I am impressed with how much stuff you get with Memebox and I love skin care products so I am in love with these boxes. I actually have two more boxes coming. I order the Superbox 2 and Superbox! Two I think is just makeup and Three is Hydration, I believe skin care products.

IMG_1207

Too Cool for school Aqua Gel Mist 100ml

This stuff smells amazing, even the hubby liked it. He said his face has been feeling dry and this Gel Mist felt nice on his face. This is a full size product that retails for $12. I am going to assume USD because its on the info card Memebox provided. It says Too Cool for school Aqua Gel Mist 100ml. It says it instantly replenishes your skin with soothing hydration, and provides a healthy-looking glow to your skin. I can not say enough good things about this stuff. I love it.

IMG_1208

CNP Laboratories Cleansing Perfecta 50ml

 

Next up we have CNP Laboratories Cleansing Perfecta 150ml ($23). We were given a 50ml sample, which is a pretty good sample if you ask me(have you seen Birchbox samples lately?). This is a 1/3 of the full size and is worth about $7.67.

IMG_1212

Nuganic Customize Pore Control Essence 30ml

This is the Nuganic Customize Pore Control Essence 30ml. This retails for $46 and is full size! It says over time, enlarged pores are visibly reduced, and skin creates stronger support for a tighter, more refined, and smoother complexion.

IMG_1217

Mamonde First Energy Serum 10ml 

Mamonde First Energy Serum, full size is 100ml and retails for $27. We were given  a 10ml sample worth about $2.70. This also came with an extra sample of the serum in a packet and a cc cream in a packet.

IMG_1232

Tonynoly Delight Tony Tint Red 1.5ml

This was a sample size at 1.5ml($1.50) the full size is 9ml and retails for $3. Per Memebox this is one of the bestselling lip tint in Korea. It instantly gives vivid red color on your lip with a single touch. It create a gradient lip known as “Korean Lip.”

IMG_1218

Tonymoly Delight Tony Tint Red lip swatch

Just thought I’d throw this in there. I really liked this, it stained my lips just as it said it would and stayed on for a couple hours but then I washed my face for bed so I’ll have to test the longevity another day.

IMG_1230

Sep Face Lifting Mask 30g

This is Sep Face Lifting Mask 30g. This is a full size product it retails for $14. I can’t wait to try this. I meant to tonight but I forgot. Oops!

IMG_1226

Danahan Bon Yeon Jin Essence 12ml

Danahan Bon Yeon Jin Essence 12ml(about $17) Full size is 50ml and retails for $68. By the way I’m not the best at math so if you are and you noticed a messed up the numbers…call me out. Thats how we learn anyways! haha. So This product looks pretty awesome. I can’t wait to test this bad boy out! I love anti-wrinkle anything and anything anti-wrinkle that actually works. So I’m pumped to test this stuff out.

IMG_1228

Dear by Enporani Bounce Cream Cheese 100ml

I was just shocked. I thought this was a full size product but its not this is 100ml and the full size is 300ml! so our sample averages about $5.50 and the full size is $16. I did get to try this stuff out tonight and it weird, but fun weird. it says this is a facial cream that has a very unique bounce texture from high concentrations of milk serum, also known as Whey. Whey is a good source of natural protein that perfectly hydrates and firms your skin.

It reminded me of mozzarella cheese when melted its really stringy! I liked it!

Ok so Memebox Luckybox cost me I think 23 plus 6.99 s&h. But if you sign up to their site new you get two points, which translates to $2 I believe you can take off your order so thats a plus. Plus when you make a purchase you also accumulate points that can be used for later purchases. Ok Ok so this box was worth $106.17 roughly and again it costs $23. I did purchase this myself and I am not being reimbursed or paid for my opinion. This is all my clever little thoughts! Haha. These boxes are amazing and I am totally hooked. I love how much stuff you get in  this box, its crazy!

Ok I need to get to bed now but if you click on any of the pictures it should take you right over to order the Luckybox 1. Remember Luckybox 2 is available now too.  If you just want to check out the website click here

Oh and let me know what you guys think. Are you interested? Will you be signing up for a box?  I’d love to hear from you!

Love you guys!!!

xoxo

Amers!

Birchbox and Us Weekly February 2014 Box

Welcome to the February 2014 Birchbox.

Birchbox and Us weekly teamed up for February’s box. I am a big fan of “Step and Repeat,” this months theme. So I kept the theme going for the pics. You’ll see!

image

Birchbox February 2014

Ooh the first thing I seen was pink, pink nail polish so lets put a pic up and show you guys!

image

Ruby Wing Color Changing Nail Polish in Kitten Heels

How gorgeous is this color? I was beyond ecstatic just for this little puppy. And then…it changes color! I haven’t seen it change color yet because I’m a mom of four kids, three are three and under, so yeah. Haha. Honestly, I’m happy with just the pink but I guess it does change to a more orange color in the sunlight. I’m just going to copy and paste what Birchbox says about how it works…

How it Works

Formulated with SolarActive® Technology, each polish transitions from one shade to another as soon as you step out into the sunlight and come into contact with UV rays. Walk back indoors, and your nails will return to the original color. Each Ruby Wing polish is non-toxic, vegan, and environmentally safe.

So there you go. I can tell you that it goes on really nice and dries really fast. I think this might be my fastest drying nail polish I own and thanks to subscription boxes, that’s quite a lot!

image

Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

Ok, lets just get this out-of-the-way. This was the most disappointing item in my Birchbox. Not because it’s a bad palette but because of this sample. It is extremely hard to try to do an eyeshadow look with a paper palette. I tried but it just ended up stashed in a drawer because I felt bad throwing it away. Now let me just tell you. I am an eyeshadow, wait no, I am a palette freak. I can’t help it. I just need to buy them. If they had made a better way to try these out where I could actually try them out or even less eyeshadows but more product of each that would have been better. I kinda find it insulting that they put this in my box. Seriously Birchbox just stop it. I know its only $10.00/month but just stop. Haha!

Do you think they heard me? Obviously, I’m joking. Haha.

image

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

Keeping with the same brand, Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. Now here is a sample size I can try to see if I like. There is actually more than one use out of this sample. I am pleased! Haha. Oh boy, I’m really cracking myself up tonight. Now I’ve never tried this mascara before. I tend to stay with my Benefit They’re Real Mascara but I don’t mind experimenting with others. That’s how we find newer awesome products. So I was pretty impressed with this little bottle. The wand is huge though, it reminded me of Benefits BadGal Lash Mascara. I liked it but I still like my Benefit, They’re Real mascara.

image

Coola Tinted Matte SPF30 for Face

Next on the block is Coola Tinted moisturizer/BB cream? Not too sure on this one but I really like it. The sample size is nice and I like getting SPF products, especially Coola. I’ve always been happy with their products. This time is no different. Great product. It has a silicone in it so it actually reminds me of Benefits Porefessional but it evens out your skin tone. It doesn’t erase your pores like Porefessional but it does smooth everything out nicely. If i had to choose between the two. Hands down the Coola. Why? Because, for me, the Porefessional doesn’t last on my skin for some reason. I don’t even think it last for an hour. So I feel better spending money on a product that is going to last the whole day or more than an hour!

image

Beauty Protector Protect and Oil

This smells amazing just like the detangler from their line. BP needs to market this scent. I would buy the perfume version of this scent. It smells soooooo good! If you have not smelled this line yet, you need too! I haven’t used much of this yet but I  like the smell and it seemed like all my other oils. I would buy this one though next time because it works just like my others but smells divine!

So that’s it for this months Birchbox. What did you guys think of February’s box?

Ipsy January 2014

I just wanted to apologize I thought I posted this all ready last week but it looks like I didn’t so here you go this is Ipsy January 2014! Enjoy

It took forever for Ipsy to get here this month, seriously why does it take soooo long??. Okay so let’s get into it. As usual, Ipsy is $10/month and free shipping.

20140120-223545.jpg

Ipsy January 2014

This bag was smelly this month. I’ve never gotten a smelly bag before hopefully this will be the last one. It smelled like chemicals. It smelled gross. I didn’t really care for the bag this month anyway so, eh no big deal. I’ll shove some fabric softener sheets in it and hopefully the smell will go away. Or I guess I could wash it too! Hahaha

20140120-224358.jpg

Proactive Acne Fading Pads

The first item is Proactive Mark Fading Pads. I received four samples. I tried one right before I started writing this and this baby burns if you have any cuts, active acne going on it burns. Is it weird that I kinda like it. We’ll I don’t like the sting but at the same time I like to know it’s working. If that makes sense?

20140120-230717.jpg

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-in Conditioner

So this is the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave in Conditioner. That is a mouthful! Haha I just recently ran out of this. I bought the same exact one from the hair salon I go to. I grabbed it for $2.00. I didn’t really think it was great. I wouldn’t repurchase it again but I don’t mind using it since I have it. It’s always good to have backup leave-in conditioner if you have long hair. And I have lots of it. Hair not leave-in conditioner. Just In case there was any confusion there. Haha.

20140121-212237.jpg

Epice Facial Exfolliant

This little baby is called Epice. It’s a purifying exfoliant. It smells fruity, which is always a plus in my book. And it feels very smooth, I mean it has the little beads but they all feel the same size and are very small. I really enjoyed this. I’ve used it twice so far. I don’t know if I explained that texture right. If you got this in your bag let me what you thought. I personally have enjoyed it so far. Actually you know what this reminds me of? The Michael Todd Tropical Fruit Face Scrub. I love them both!

20140121-212902.jpg

Mica Beauty Tinted Lip Balm and Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Pearl

Sorry I guess I didn’t realize how crappy and unclear this picture was but it’s like 11 at night and I’m in bed with sick baby and hopefully not gonna get sick toddler. (FYI…Everyone got sick!) So I’m super sorry for the crap pic. I’ll put myself in timeout in the a.m. (–I wish) no but seriously sorry. But in this pic we have Mica Beauty tinted lip balm in Natural, which is a nudie lip balm. It’s so smooth I absolutely love it. But if I had one complaint about it I wish it came with a little lip brush. I know it’s a balm but it’s more like a gloss/lipstick that’s hydrating. And I hate getting my fingers messy. I feel like it should be like Caitlyn’s. Her cosmetics come with brushes. That’s the only improvement I’d make.

Also in the picture… Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow pencil in Pearl. I’ll throw in some swatches below

20140121-215044.jpg

Swatched

I found this color to be more of a mauve. It looks really nice on and feels even better on your lips than you would think. It’s like silky!
nudie color on my lips. But the Smooth shadow swatch right above looks pretty much what it looks like in person. It’s beautiful.

20140121-220042.jpg

Ipsy Card

I don’t usually show the cards but I thought this months was cute. It has 19 reasons why 2014 will be amazing. I stuck it on my fridge and I haven’t filled out 19 yet but I did get my first one written down.
1. I will not be pregnant this year!
I’ve been pregnant for the past three consecutive years, plus I have another child who is 10 so I am pretty excited to not being pregnant. I have to think about the rest but I do have that hanging on my fridge and the hubs thought it was pretty cute so there ya go! Haha.

That was January’s Ipsy bag! I would like to see more higher end make-up thrown in there. I love skincare so I don’t mind seeing skincare items but I wouldn’t mind more luxury makeup products that I’m interested in trying. You know what they should make? A MAC monthly subscription. I totally would be all over that. Speaking of MAC. I order the Riri Viva Glam Lipstick and some more MAC products today. Maybe I’ll do a little haulerooni when it all comes in.

At $10/month you can’t really beat it. The value of what you get is always more than what you pay.

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
